Michael Bay: Transformers 2 Coming Soon with Lots of New, Unique Robots

Postby Skowl » Mon Dec 31, 2007 7:18 pm

Michael Bay, director of the Transformers Movie, has posted on his official site to wish fans a happy new year and to give us a little update regarding Transformers 2.

Here's what he had to say:


I want to thank Nelson for running such a good site!

For the millions of viewers that logged on this year I want to thank you for the support. Transformers 2 will be coming soon. The new robots are really really unique and there are a lot of them this time.

I WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE A GREAT HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR.

Your friend,

Michael

Yeah, they say they would leak false info, but anything "straight from the horse's mouth," as it were, is considered official.

They didn't take the time to flesh out the characters in the first movie (humans included) and now they're throwing a bunch of new robots in the mix?

Why?

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the first film, but there were many parts of it that were paper thin. What will this be? Can you go below paper thin?

Oh yeah...Uwe Boll.

And we're all just supposed to ignore the fact that the script is not complete and on hold due to the writer's strike and what was a release date seems to have been deleted from any recent sources. The list of 'new' movies in 2009 is going to be short unless things change over the next few months to get scripts completed so movies can be made.

Oh well, it wouldn't bother me much if there were not many movies to watch, I'd be able to catch up on all the ones I missed already and there's still a lot of holes in my TF collection to work on if there isn't a TF2 movie line to collect.

wait but this is false info so it should be the opposite.
So what he really means is:

I want nelson to die,
I think the millions of people who logged on need to get a life.
Transformers 2 is coming in 2013. The robots won't have any feelings. And there won't be any new bots!

Have a crappy new year. And get cancer.

Michael


or not. I want more robots and to be healthy.

I have mixed feelings about TF2. On the one hand, based on how Hasbro has milked the Movie line so far, if TF2 has lots of TFs, then maybe each one will only be repainted once, instead of, what, 4 or 5 times?? :P But on the other hand, lots of TFs may just mean EVEN MORE characters to repaint a million times. :?

I DO wonder if all the surviving TFs from the first Movie will be in TF2, as well as a whole bunch of new TFs, and if they are, if they'll have the same vehicle modes? It seems unlikely. I mean, Movie Bumblebee (Camaro) is awesome, but I doubt that Hasbro will want to release the same figure again, since "everyone" will already have at least one version from the first Movie.

It's easy:

If Michael Bay, or any of the people involved in the movie, say something - IT'S LEGIT.

If something is LEAKED, it's a RUMOUR until we have official proof that proves it's legitimacy.

He seems pretty optimistic, considering the Writer's Guild strike. Still, I'll believe it when I see it.

And what does he mean by unique? Movie only bots with no ties to previous series? New alt modes and factions for pre-existing characters?

Vague and useless as always, I see Bay did not make a New Years resolution to not open his mouth to just talk crap.
