Ooh, definitely sounds more like Frank Welker as Megatron ^^

(See Mr. Bay? Welker's voice *does* suit the movie Megs! Just needed a lower pitch! :P My word I sound like a G1'ner...!)

Huh, same cars as the spiderman ride fro universal studios Florida, similar first turn too.
Since spiderman was voted the best motion ride in the country (or something like that) I expect this ride to be SO AWESOME! :KREMZEEK:

Don't wanna listen to that in case of spoilers. Glad the 1:44 video was up & could be viewed. Was that Welker for Megs' voice?

Yep, all the original cast from the live action movies is in it. I just wish I knew who EVAC's voice actor was though.

I haven't followed any of the news for this ride for a couple weeks now, and I must say, regarding the line queue previews, I KNEW SCORPONOK'S TAIL WAS GONNA BE THERE!!!!!!!! That ride queue looks to be quite impressive, and I'm very pleased about how EVAC looks, especially the battle damage.
I also knew there would be 3D glasses, but was still holding out hope that Universal wouldn't make them look the same as every other ride of theirs. I guess they get a good deal for buying so many of them in that generic design...?

Now, for the ride audio, the sound effects and voice acting were great. I'm really surprised that I'm liking this ride so much. I couldn't help but feel slightly embarrassed that BumbleBee only had a couple of lines that were the same as the movie(s). I was hoping that Mark Ryan would have done his voice instead. Small gripe, so I'm not really phased by this.

If the ride is really as much fun as it sounds and is pretty immersive from queue to boarding the cart, I'd have to say that Michael Bay should start having more involvement with rides rather than movies. actually, the more I think about it, the more it seems his *ahem* "skills" as director would be better suited for that type of experience.

Anyway, I'm patiently waiting for the Universal Studios Florida release to come. I wonder if it will be in the main park or IoA though... And what ride may be sacrificed for this. I'm hoping The Mummy will be killed since that ride killed my favorite ride ever there, King Kong. And The Mummy is pretty lame from beginning to end to begin with...

Also, SPOILER:
Devastator is in the ride? I'm hoping for something EPIC here!!!!! Also, please no close up of his testicular area..... That was a lame idea in RotF, I hope for no more of it.

You do know that Welker wasn't Megs in the bay movies - it was Hugo Weaving

I thought they meant Que as in the character but he means queue area as in where you wait for your turn to ride. you may want to amend the title of the news post.

I just hope the ride opens before SDCC.

Umm, I think someone made an error. That's Sideswipe, an Autobot.

The average user won't know it but Transformers fans will notice it right off. Also, is that Peter Cullen voicing Optimus Prime? It sounds like someone else doing a Peter Cullen impersonation.

Wheelie called him "Decepticon Sideways." Either this is one MASSIVE continuity error (assuming this takes place during the Bay continuity to begin with [more on that later...]) or SideSWIPE wasn't as good as he believed...or its a new 'Con with an old name. :BOOM:

Anyway, regarding continuity... Where in the continuity does the ride take place? Ironhide gave intel on Scorpinok's tail with "the rest of him...still out there waiting to strike."

Sooo...what happened in ROTF?

Also, Ironhide showed clips from DOTM's Chicago battle as historical footage, I believe. If that's the case, WHY AND HOW IS IRONHIDE STILL ALIVE?

Just where in the timeline does this take place in, if at all? :BANG_HEAD:

Well, originally, I was thinking between ROTF and DOTM. But now that you've brought this up, I'm gonna now have to guess that it exists within its own micro-continuity separate from (but still inspired by) the main movie timeline.

Maybe, like everyone else, they are pretending ROTF didn't exist. The only thing ROTF adds to the trilogy is Megatron's revival. Wheelie can be explained the same way they explained Brains, nothing at all, they are just there.

As for Chicago, they probably just show it as another city.

His chest opens slightly in the movie we don't see deep into him. You can just retcon that Prime always had the Matrix.

At least the events surrounding the Matrix were among the few (and I mean VERY few) exciting points in ROTF.

I agree with you on that but what I mean is that it isn't something that effected the story in DOTM if ROTF never existed. Having Megatron alive and well in DOTM is a huge continuity problem. Prime always having the Matrix, it works.

It will. It's supposed to open in the spring. I'm hoping by March. Haven't watched the que line video yet -not enough time.

Posted by LadyBug on November 26th, 2011 @ 9:44am CST
It made me a happy fangirl to know that Ironhide is alive, if this taking place post-DOTM. It was an unnecessary "death" by Bay. And then Ratchet disappears for the rest of the movie until the very end. WTF. If Bay wanted to kill off some Autobots, why not the twins or the Wreckers, or someone who isn't apart of the main team?

But it just makes me happy that they realized that these are some beloved characters that they are using for the ride (except for Wheelie). I can't wait to experience this ride for my self.

Other than the Sideways/Sideswipe fail, this looks amazing. Grindor named and seen in the ride? YES THANK YOU! I love how some of the best characters are seen in the various briefings (Shockwave's cameo made me smile), and the shop looks really cool. Need to get me a Sideswipe T-shirt...
Re: Transformers: The Ride Unveiling the Preshow Videos (1316923)
Posted by Sabrblade on November 26th, 2011 @ 2:58pm CST
With all these dead characters being alive (including those who deaths were important, impactful, and meaningful), I think it's safe to assume that this ride exists in its own micro-continuity outside of the main movie timeline.

Since all of the above are dead (or MIA, in Ravage's case) and haven't yet been given any canonical reason for their suddenly being alive, I'd say this ride is OOC with the movies and the accompanying fiction.

^ This

Deserves some explanation. Like tons of shards of the alspark suddenly reviving them all. And Sideways Escaping for TF4. He is awesome, he needs his own movie.

Ahem.

But maybe this will just be kind of a "Happening inside ROTF" thing?

Makes sense this does not. MMMmm!

They also forgot to mention that Ironhide and Ratchet are apart of the ride. They may not be in the actual ride, but they give the tactics and information you need during the pre-show to understand the ride.

Not to mention, the most important Transformer: Evac.

How is he awesome? He's a coward who doesn't like fighting, he hides behind larger Decepticons as though they were his security blanket, and is an expert at doing this:


He's no RiD/Armada/RobotMasters/Cybertron/Animated Sideways. ;)

The Disney Imagineers don't seem to have a problem making awesome realistic animatronic designs. They have very convincing Droids at Star Tours, and I had imagined this ride to be a lot like Indiana Jones Adventure or the Dinosaur ride at Walt Dinsey World, where an actual life-sized animatronic dinosaur roars in your face. Obviously TFs are more complex than that but I thought since this is already a multi-million dollar project they could throw in an actual physical TF or two... imagine how cool it would be to see Prime in the 'flesh'? They'd probably do it with Evac since he's the mascot, but man, I would have loved to have seen that, even in the queue or at the end of the ride. As cool as modern 3D can be, nothing compares to seeing something actually there in front of you.
