10 Robots On Each Side In TF2?
bwbm - Sunday, June 01, 2008


Roberto Orci, one-third of the "Transformers 2" scriptwriting team, has hinted that there may possibly be 10 robots for each Autobot and Decepticon faction in the film. "I'd love and think we could almost barely manage ten on each side," wrote Mr. Orci on the Don Murphy message boards. However, not all of them will be in the spotlight, he says, "some front and center and others as more supporting."

:pfx Not releasing toys of returning characters would be like not releasing a new spider-man toy every time a new spider-man movie came out. It just wouldn't make any sense.

Just wanted to point out, this quote just says that Orci thinks ten robots on a side is , not that it's a done deal... I also have to agree with Hobbes, you'd have to be crazy to think that they won't have new toys for the returning characters in the next movie line. Optimus and Bumb... read more

Yeah, I remember when the Spider-Man 2 line came out and the only character in it was Doctor Octopus and everyone thought that was cool. And let's not forget the Joker/Two-Face only The Dark Knight toy line. Come on, guys, the 'Formers from part 1 will get new toys. Welcome to the wild wo... read more

Woo Hoo!! I think that having more bots for the new movie will be fanatically fantastic! I do hope that the first movie bots get to keep their appearance for the second movie but with additional bots, I wonder what else we are going to be looking towards? ^_^

Of course I like the idea of new characters. I would prefer that the new movie line produce JUST those new characters. If the original characters from the first movie keep their original ALT/Bot modes, then there is no reason to remake the figures. I for one wouldn't have any interest in buyi... read more

I hope they atleast streamline their appearances this time. Too many insect type faces and their robot modes looked to complex with car parts just randomly stuck to limbs. Hopefully they will simplify them abit.

If this is true about there being 10 bots per side, they better show some of them in the trailers and teasers when they are out!! Was kinda thinking that Chinese police car could possibly be Prowl, and that the 3-wheeled bike could possibly be Ravage.. Can't wait to see which Decepticon... read more

A lot of good points made about the first run of movie figs needing improvements. Though I like the movie figs for what they are there's no denying they could have been better. I the core characters are redone I'd most want a better Barricade toy that featured those spinning weapons. Hasbr... read more

Personally, I think more robots = more original molds = more crappy repaints because there are more molds to repaint. You gotta recoup costs on those molds eventually. But, as with the first movie, I'll just ignore the repaints.

I read about this on Wikipedia weeks ago. Took it with a grain of salt, but this seems to be a little more confirming, and would therefore seem more likely the Chevy Malibu with custom Chinese writing police car that was in the article about Jazz's possible return to the cast being Prowl, seems... read more
