Paramount Confirms Revenge of the Fallen Characters
bwbm - Wednesday, April 01, 2009


Paramount Pictures has released a list of the main characters of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Yahoo! has posted the full list along with a never-before-seen image of Ravage.

National newspaper USA Today has posted the list as well, with commentary from Director Michael Bay and scriptwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci on the newcoming characters.

The newspaper's website also provides our first look of the newcomer Decepticon The Doctor.

The following is the list that is compiled from both the Yahoo! and USA Today articles.

AUTOBOTS

OPTIMUS PRIME: Autobot Leader

IRONHIDE: Weapons specialist

RATCHET: Medic

BUMBLEBEE
Friend and mode of transportation for Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf)

Arcee
A female pink Autobot motorcycle that shows up as Mikaela Banes' (Megan Fox) motorcycle.

JETFIRE
An older SR71 Blackbird jet Decepticon who switches sides. "He's old, craggy, forgetful[and] doesn't work very well," Mr. Bay tells USA Today. "[He] [c]an't transform very well, because he's very geriatric. They get stuck with him a lot. He knows the plan of the bad guys, but he forgets all the good parts of the plan."

JOLT
The original toy was a Decepticon, but in the movie he's a good guy - Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid

SIDESWIPE

SKID & MUDFLAP: a.k.a. "The Twins" - Chevrolet Beat and Trax concept cars
"Some of the junior Transformers are just dumb," Mr. Bay tells the paper with a laugh. "But it's great for kids because they're like the Little Engine That Could. They're (screw)-ups, but they get really heroic at the end."

DECEPTICONS

STARSCREAM

SCORPONOK

THE FALLEN
One of the original Transformers, he's called "the most elemental bad guy" by the screenwriters.

He is "sort of the Transformers' version of Lucifer," the USA Today article reads. Mr. Orci and Mr. Kurtzman say that The Fallen holds the key to life on both Earth and Cybertron, the Transformers' home planet.

SIDEWAYS: Audi R8

SOUNDWAVE: A cassette player in the original toys; his alternate mode will fly

RAVAGE
While he has always been lethal, "There's actually another skill set Ravage has that didn't exist before," Mr. Kurtzman tells USA Today. "[S]o there's going to be a surprise for fans."

The four-legged, cat-like robot will not speak - only ferocious growling.

INSECTIONS
The giant bugs in the original series and Hasbro toy line will make an appearance in the Revenge of the Fallen, but are now tiny creepy-crawly infiltrators.

THE DOCTOR
A spider-like droid that transforms into various implements of torture and has a not-so-nice encounter with star Shia LaBeouf

WHEELIE: small, radio-controlled truck

DEMOLISHER: One of the Constructicons that transform into construction vehicles

DEVASTATOR
A giant robot formed by the Constructicons joining together; individually, they are: Scavenger, Scrapper, Hightower, Longhaul, Rampage, Overload and Mixmaster.

"He's made of vehicles designed to build, and he turns into is someone who loves to destroy," Mr. Orci tells the paper. "He is an agent of absolute chaos."

Mr. Bay says Devastator is the crème de la smash and got a uncharacteristic reaction out of the film's executive producer already.

"[Executive Producer Steven] Spielberg saw it and said, 'This is (expletive) awesome!'" Mr. Bay recalls. "It's always nice when you can make him swear."

Why is Wheelie a "Decepticon"? "...Wheelie is a Decepticon, not because he wants to be, but out of fear of the Decepticons..." - (Taken from his official Toy Bio) He will join the Autobots in the movie, and won't remain a Decepticon.

His toy bio shows that he is scared into serving the Decepticon: The coloring book shows that he tries to steal an AllSpark Fragment from Mikaela, but there is no doubt that he'll switch sides since he's considered an Autobot in his bio.

More Transformers Movies News
Man, that was quick: TakaraTomy has published photos of their Movie The Best offerings for March 2018 as well! March will see releases of MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 Warhammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Keep reading for more details!
Via Twitter, TakaraTomy has released a teaser image showing off the Movie The Best releases we learned about earlier this week. Not just confirming the listings we saw, this answers some questions about the toys that will be put to use. As it turns out, a reasonable quantity of The Last Knight toys are figuring in to the 2018 lineup including Leader Megatron, Hound, Bumblebee, and the current Optimus mold in the Nemesis Prime role. You can check out the full size image previewing the whole assortment just below in the full post!
Having taken place this week, the Christmas Toy Fair expo in Japan has afforded us a first look at Movie The Best Jetfire, which was initially revealed to us through retailer listings just days ago. From what little coverage we could find of the Transformers displays, it didn't seem like very much new was on hand. A clear look at Jetfire was most notable among other movie products we've seen many times already. An MP Bumblebee was displayed as well to promote the upcoming reissue in February. Sadly none of the newly listed Legends toys seemed to be shown during this event. Keep reading to see the photos!
Celebrate 10 years of live action Transformers movies with the next 9 figures in the "Movie Best" lineup! The new figures include MB-12 Jazz, MB-13 Bonecrusher, MB-14 Megatron, MB-15 Lockdown, MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime (Revenge Ver.), MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Each fully transformable figure features premium deco and includes one or more accessories.
The new release of 2007's Leader Class movie Optimus Prime under the Transformers Tribute subline is now available for purchase in the US via Amazon. Like the Orion/Optimus Evolution 2 pack before it, this is apparently an Amazon exclusive. But, unlike the very unexpectedly reasonable price point of the 2 pack, Leader Optimus is currently listed at $79.99. But of course that does mean it qualifies for free shipping whether or not you're an Amazon Prime member. Is the very first movie Optimus with a fancy updated deco worth that to you? If so, hit the link in the full post below, and keep reading for a set of new stock photos of the toy.
