Glad to hear about the sequels! I do believe that Peter Cullen is already under contract for 3 films.

Oh, not that old Galvatron crack. That old bad twist is in every series sace for Beast Wars/Machines. Keep it away from the movie.

Characters I would like to see in either of the sequels:

-Wheeljack
-Grimmy
-Soundwave (already a potential)
-Shockwave (same there)
-Brawl's fellow Combaticons! At least that'll give the fanboys a better Swindle.

I seriously doubt they hired Weaving instead of Welker to voice a main character with only 10-15 minutes of footage before killing him off entirely. It may appear that Megs is dead at the end of this movie, but there's no way he will be. He's probably physically destroyed, which of course will make sense for him to take an Earth mode in Part 2.

In fact, I anticipate ALL the characters that aren't killed off in this movie getting revisions & tweaks for each of the sequals. If they didn't, it would be awefully hard to sell toys that everyone already has from this movie.

As for new characters, I bet it will be a small handful of recognizable names mixed with entirely new ones. And considering the direction they took with this movie in terms of character selection & design, I think people who somehow still believe they're going to introduce new leaders like Galvatron, Ultra Magnus and/or Rodimus Prime are seriously deluded or being intentionally clueless for the sake of fandom. These guys aren't following G1 at all - I don't know how much more obvious it needs to be. And things like a Nemesis Prime or Dinobots, etc.? You have got to be kidding.

Why can't Arcee have a holographic driver too?

But I don't want any more of these "movies." I don't even want this one. What happened to all the people not wanting this film? Or realizing how under (and somehow over) designed the characters are? Did we forget about the football routine that defeats Megatron? What about Bumble-pee? What about "A story about a boy and his car?"

I like Transformers. This is not Transformers. This isn't even Go-bots.

This is Rocklords.

Can't we talk about how cool Music Label Soundwave is? He's pretty darn cool.

If they do two sequals, there better not be any Prime killing. If they do kill Prime, it better be like Jack Sparrow and just have him die, but be brought back.

Sequal will also have to have Unicron. Seriously, how sweet will it be to see Unicron just hovering close by to Earth. It would be pretty sweet.

I got some ideas for sequels how about throwing in Alpha Q and Rodimus from Energon and doing that Unicron deal put some more humans from the cartoons in in like Micschea, Kicker, Alexis, Rad, Carlos, Bud, Coby and Lori in it. Or how about a thing on the mini-cons or the start of construction on Autobot City but do it like Star Wars Episode III style. Also throw in Metroplex and Trypticon the Sweeps have Megatron get upgraded to Galvatron and do the Combining thing like in Energon. What bugged me most about the cartoon series is why is it none of the Decipticons cant combine or is that they dont choose to or need to.

I hope they put in some Dinobots.....& to be perfectly honest, I think I might have figured out a believable way they could handle creating them.....if they can make a transformer out of anything just by giving some electronic or mechanical object a "spark".... give some to some anamatronic Dinosaurs. Don't know if people would think it's silly or not, but my guess is if they went from there & just had them being somewhat terrifying & then start playing enforcer beating the sh*t out of the decepticons, nobody will think it to be too cornball.

I think we should see the first movie before making any speculation on what the sequels should be like.

While it has been approved, the sequels will depend on how well this one does.

People got over it.

Spoilers from the Script wrote:Football doesn't defeat Megatron. It gets him out of the way. Megatron is defeated by having a lethal beam shot at his spark, by Sam, from the Allspark.

Well, let's look at the title...

It says "Transformers," but how do we know it's legit?

Oh, 'cause it's liscenced by Hasbro.

Sure, just not in the movie forum.

I hate and love when old-schoolers have (not want) to shut up this new breed that worked its way into the mix.

I absolutely abhor (look it up, kids) people that use material objects to imply there narrow minded views on others...

funny punch line edited to not offend the people that were raised on RID.

The Transformers Trilogy;

BB to Megs: 'Optimus told me you murdered my father (alphatrion)'
Megs to BB: 'No....I am your father'

there's your emotional storyline.... :gasp:

Hey you can't forget the Sci-Fi channel TV Series.....you know that one will probably happen if the other 2 movies flop.

....just like Robocop.....

Man, Sci-Fi is saving up for Go-Bots so they can make them fight yet another giant snake, but this time it'll be on a submarine.

That should make for a nice twist!

Wow...Rodimus2006...no. The people in those imported crappy series were terribly annoying. I think that Sam and Mikaela will be quite enough. And that means no Chip Chase, either! I'd like to see Grimlock, but I doubt he'll be a dinosaur if he's in the sequels at all. Jetfire would be awesome, though!

Mkay. Here's how I'd have Nemesis Prime for the THIRD movie (Soundwave in the second). Some kind of evil entity, kind of like The Allspark's evil counterpart, takes control of Prime's corpse (yes, in my trilogy I'd have Prime die in 2 so we can bring him back for 3).

It names itself "nemesis prime." He takes command of the Decepticons from Galvatron (nemesis prime is much more powerful) and has a climactic battle with Rodimus Prime. Right as nemesis is to kill Rodimus, Prime's spark takes control of his body, purges the Omegaspark (like the name? :-P ) and kills Galvatron. Prime returns to command as Autobot leader and the universe lives happily ever after.
