In the age of internet, most big movie morons enjoy using these smoke and mirrors to give people reasons to watch. Some odd facts,

I haven't seen a single TV ad for this flick. But I did see some propaganda at my local mega-plex.

Most of the trailers are going to youtube first, and then out to the rest of the world.

and my opinions:
Does it actually matter what some brown-nosed intern has to say about the contents or characters of a movie. The writers had that all figured out before this idiot "nelson" was drafted from the IHOP school of Cinematography, or where ever they sell such credentials for less than community college tuition.
Grails:
Bots: G1 Bumblebee; Balance of Aerialbots(I have Air Raid)
parts: Overload's arms. Wanted badly

I liked Jetfire's Alan Moore voice. It made no sense and way a bit stupid, but, well, okay, I didn't like it that much, but it's better than Bumblebee's stupid voice gimmick.

The ONLY crap they've pulled that might of actually done is the Twins being removed, but I highly doubt it. I'm sure they will be in the movie.

Seriously, its too late to pull the misinformation crap. Nelson also talks like a total prick.



OK since I wasn't the first to post this I'm not going to feel the slightest bit bad confirming this. The above listing, according to the novel, is accurate and yes the Twins will be in it and, as much as I HATE those two A**-hats, it will be worth it to tolerate them for the short time they are in it. Trust me, you will love what goes down with the twins if, in fact, they stay true to the screen-play. Thunderous applause will erupt and folks will stand and cheer and that's all I'm gonna say about it. ;) :P

So yeah, Nelson is feeding us a load of crap at every turn but this nothing of a surprise to anybody. If you are going to follow the posts on that site, bring a shovel.


The thing about how the Twins may not actually be in it is because Paramount also stated they were removed from the movie, rather then just not in it. Its possible that they had to change the scene in which the Twins are in it because they were told that they were unsuitable for the movie. While I personally think they'll still be there, the fact that it wasn't just Bay and his d-bag Nelson that said it, its still up in the air wether or not they'll make an appearance.

The rest however, is all true and Nelson knows it. He's just trying to keep the water stirred until the movie is released.


Unless you've seen the movie, then no, its nessasarly true. By your own admittance, its possible that even though the twins were in the novelazation, they still could be removed from the final film. Why can't this be true for other aspects of the novel?

And again, even if Nelson kis stiring the pot to make hype for the movie, so what? The more hype, the more people want to go see it. AKA, more money. Sorry, but thats just how things work.

the more the creators of a product lie about the content of their product, the more likely I am to illegally download it out of morbid curiosity at how bad something can be that you don't have the balls to admit what's there, or just let the work speak for itself.

Thats a piss poor excuse for illeagaly downloading content. Just go to the theathers like most people and find out for yourself. And if your going to start ppinting fingers, then you need to point them at the fan base your invloved in. If people would just let things be, wait till June 29th to see the real movie, not go by a novelazation or a kids coloring book, then they will not only get there answers, but can also be surprised at the same time. But no.. people go by something that has been proven time and time again not to represent the final product in every detail, and get mad when the people that have spent over a year creating something try and keep some of the secrets just that... Secrets!

Whether this guy is correct or not, technically not all of the transformers in the movie were not referred by their Hasbro names.

Scavenger in ROTF was never referred to as Scavenger by the crew. Bay and the crew just address him as "wheel-bot".

Looks like nelson the site admin of Michael Bay's Shoot for the Edit forums is being especially generous today. After just revealing that the red Ferarri 458 Italia will be Dino, he has now dropped the name of the blue Mercedes E550. Drum roll please.........................

Que. Pronounced "Q."


He also provided a link to the Wikipedia entry for "Q" from the James Bond franchise in his post.

This whole name confusion is so ****** I don't believe any of this crap. For example the thing that was said about soundwave not being the silver mercedes because the mercedes company wouldn't like having their car as a decepticon thats crap it is soundwave. And why in the world would they just make up some random transformers characters and names for the move when there is a whole universe to go off of? :-x

I'm not sure if I believe this or not. I think an Aston Martin would be more appropriate for a character called "Q," though...

Bay didn't pick the name, Ferrari did, it couldn't be a name attached to Hasbro's Transformers brand, blah blah, yadda yadda.

Then IMO, they never should have used the ferrari in the place. Its not like there isn't a slew of sports/exotic cars to choose from. Heck, Put a ZR1 Corvette in its place. I understand that product placment like this pays the bills, but when they dictate the role and more importantly the name, thats crap. Homage doesn't need to given to Ferrari in this case. This is not a Ferrari movie. This is probabaly going to be the worst name in TF history. :BANG_HEAD:
