Looking back...

So now we've seen all of the robot modes basically.

Let's look at this leaked photo from months prior...

So who is in this pic? I see all 5 autobots (ironhide and ratchet behind Starscream). There was talk that Frenzy was in this. Is that Blackout behind Megatron?

Keep in mind, I have NOT read the script. There is SOMEONE behind Megatron. Anyone want to comment?

Yup it's blackout. The only one we haven't seen a "final render" of is Brawl who looks to be the best in my mind.

I thought the TF's would be CGI, not cardboard.

Unless I've missed something?

no, they decided that metal was unrealistic and not alien enough, so they are all now made out of cardboard

and NO NO NO frenzy is not in that picture, frenzy isnt even alive at this point in the film, that's just blackout's foot behind megatron's that everyone was getting stupidly confused with.

and yes, blackout behind megatron

Hm...but what are all the little things that are surrounding Brawl's feet...? They don't really look like a part of Brawl...but their in the same piece of cardboard. :???:

Aren't Megatron and Optimus Prime supposed to be roughly equal in size and height in this movie? I'm sure I read somewhere that this was going to be the case.

In that picture though Megs looks to be considerably taller, and when I think back to that photo of Megatron encased in ice he looked ridiculously HUGE, much bigger than the 28 feet Prime's meant to be, roughly.

Has this been clarified anywheres?

Bored waiting for Ryan's review to show up (thanks though when it does!)

If I remember correctly, Optimus is around 40 feet tall and "Megatron" is around 50.

I think that's just persepective playing tricks. Also, BBs lower legs are missing because they were shot off.

Starscream looks like he could give Optimus Prime a fine thrashing.

Megatron is a stealth bomber. Have you seen a stealth bomber? It's about 10 times the size of a Peterbilt...Megatron should be bigger...a lot bigger. Granted, he hasn't chosen an Earth mode yet...but from what I've seen and read, if he is going to be a stealth bomber, he'd have to be pretty darn big to begin w/ to assimilate it.

...in a sense Megatron is G1, only opposite...his robot mode is a lot smaller than his alt mode.

Besides an off comment by IGN that they seemingly thought of as fact, theres been no official confirmation of Megatron being a stealth.

you dont remember correctly they are both smaller than that, however megatron is indeed slightly bigger than prime.

to the person that thinks that megatron is way bigger than prime, you are only looking at what level their heads come to, look at thier feet too, and also the guyt that thinks that ratchet is smaller than bumblebee, its called perspective

and yes those ARE brawl's feet

ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR no.

some wanky unfounded internet message boards rumours suggested that he was a stealth bomber, and then IGN decided to report this as fact, therefore the internet circle of general made up crap started turning at full speed.

show me a picture of megatron as a stealth bomber and ill believe you. until then, try reading the script. choosing an earth mode is totally against his character, he wont even speak human let alone turn himself into a human vehicle.
