Producer of the upcoming Transformers movie, Don Murphy, has been chatting up a spell for his site once again. In one of the threads on his own board, the producer has started answering a whole host of questions.

Here follow some quotes by Don Murphy taken from his board.

"Hey guess what- we have started to work on cool ComiCon stuff for TF- I will announce when I can."

"We have started some pre-visualization on the film- preliminary- looks fab."

"Hasbro needs to start the toy line in the next month to make the deadline to have toys out a month before our film."

"In John's script there were only 4 on each side...
(massive intake of breath as everyone goes what the fuck?)
Now the plans are 5 main ones.

Megs...Optimus... of course
Soundwave (no longer a blender) Bumblebee (thanks to Herbie not likely a Bug) Jazz.... Starscream.... RC.....more to come...."

"In the meeting on Thursday Hasbro all but DEMANDED that Soundwave mass shift.... the writers seemed okay with it...."

"Interestingly Ratchet is currently there too....
The writers want to make him an ambulance...
Dreamworks doesn't....
And Hasbro actually doesn't mind if he is an ambulance or a firetruck...."

"Hasbro seemed anxious to get Soundwave into musical form to unleash Ravage even if it made no sense."

"Official website ASAP- literally as soon as we can....
Final ten TFs chosen- 3 weeks
Colors/Models of those ten finalized JULY 1
Prep begin Sept 1
Shoot begin Dec 1
all Tentative"

"No Quintessions in Movie One.
The movie is gonna be much more of the origina film than it ever was before."

"The weridest thing about the meeting is that ONLY because of this board was anyone trying to protect G1 or the looks of Megs and Optimus. Hasbro doesn't mind what it is as long as they know as soon as possible. Dreamworks is intent on RE-inventing the property. You guys are being heard, but it is tougher now that it was PRE Bay, and it is not Bay it is lots of people trying to get this done. There were 29 people in the room."

"No idea about film 2 and 3
and it was sounding in that room like the Autobots may have been here since at least biblical times"
