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

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.


Bingo.

Listen to the man, people.

LISTEN! *shakes fist*

Do you honestly believe that he's lying and the truth is that there will be a few boring robots? It's a sequel, of course he's telling the truth this time.

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.

This news sounds legit to me. As far as the unique thing goes. it could mean new characters for the movie, or it could mean the characters we know with a drastic change. Haven't we already seen this? Chracters like Blackout and Barricade got changed some for the movie. We might get familiar names on different bots.

If it comes from Bay, it's legit, and there's only one significant piece of news here: there will be a lot of Transformers in the next movie. Sounds like a bigger scale, which the second movie can handle with the bigger budget you'd hope it'd get after the first one. The Transformers movies are not primarily dependent on scripts. They're primarily dependent on CGI artists. Bay can make quite a bit happen with only rudimentary aspects of the story worked out. Characterization may never be the strong point of the movies, but hey: giant freakin' robots.

Awesome, I can't wait for all the new unique robots.

Sure X-box-360 Bot and Mountain Dew Bot were all well and good.

But where was the iBot, or the DellBot, SonyBot, SamsungBot, Wal-Bot, McBot, NintenBot, Verizbot, T-Mobot, Comcabot, DirectTV-Bot and all the other Product Placement robots?

Hopefully with Transformers 2, we'll see a helluva lot more needless Product Placement Bots.

I like the sound of this. However it would really make my day if they got some of the orginal actors for the characters they portayed (John Stevenson for Thundercracker and Huffer and so on). Speaking of Huffer, I really want to see the Movie's interpretaion of him.

This bit of news could mean any number of things though. There could be new designs, but multiples of each one, creating lots. Like a big Matrix style Burly Brawl scene. It all depends on how he defines "lots".

Oh well, it doesn't really give us much insight.

So much needless Michael Bay hate in this thread! Goodness...and here I thought the wait until Transformers 2 would be DIFFERENT. But no, we're already seeing cursing, death threats, whining and sarcasm from the fandom hearing ONE sentence.

Don't ever change guys, it's almost hilarious.

Wow, so many of you are whiney freaks. I'm sure he gets a good lol out of how people throw themselves into despair and undertake ridiculous displays of idiocy after one small statement.

Personally, I have every faith in the man. He gave us an awesome film that revitalised the franchise in a huge way and brought lots of new fans on board. Well done sir, keep up the good work and have a Happy New Year! :APPLAUSE:

As long as the robots get more, or equal, air time as their human counterparts, I'll be happy.

Oh, and keep the hackers from part 1 away. Please?

Read what Bay said, he said he was "going to leak a lot of false information all over the place."

If he SAYS something it's true because he's basically making an official statement. This isn't someone hacking into the ILM mainframe and stealing stuff. If it comes from the man himself, it's legit. If you don't know where it comes from, it's a rumour!

There is a fundamental difference between a STATEMENT and a LEAK.

Jaz-Zen wrote: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.


I agree that the repaints are redundant, but it's not like you have to get them.

Your dollar is your vote, if you spend it on a figure, that tells Hasbro "OK lets do more of that", don't spend it and they'll be less prone to keep doing something.

Now if we can just get through to the completionists, and gift givers who don't know any better, maybe one day they'll take a hint. You know repaints have always been around, but each line just seems to be getting more and more reliant upon them than new figures.

Nice to hear from the fella again. Im sure that they wont lie about things like release dates and such as they need to share such info to get the hype machine rolling. Im sure when he meant they would lie about stuff he meant plot details, who the new characters will be etc etc.

I cant wait to find out who the new bots will be and how many.

I hope this is not one of those sure-fire misleading tricks of wise-crack Michael again.. (A scheme that berates and insults the fans.)

Michael should wise up, give respect for ordinary mortals, and learn to be truthful.

My circuits still sizzles when i remember Michael happily revealing his misleading schemes. :-x

Going back to the topic... (before complaints pile up against our famous cliches..)

"there are a lot of them this time. " is not a very reassuring line. (Especially coming from a liar.)

A lot can mean a dozen, for you and me. Maybe even a battalion.

But it can also mean 2 to 3 new guys with a lot of new parts or dizzying sizes.

How does it insult or berate the fans? The guy just wants his project to remain a secret, so does the studio. Its no worse than people hacking his computer, a crime, to get info on the film and share it illegally with us. And what about the death threats? Berating and insulting the "fans"?..pfft dont make me laugh...
