I just received a message from one of our friends at USA Today:

"I wanted to let Seibertron.com know that we have a gallery of 10 original Transformers that fans can vote on to send a message to the studio about who they'd like to see in a second movie. Figured this would be up your alley!

There's a giant Devastator image on the front page of our Life page online:

I'd be curious to hear who you'd like to see!"


You can vote for which Transformer you'd like to see in the sequel by visiting the link below:

Let your voice be heard! Vote here: http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/news/2007-07-18-Transformers_N.htm



______________________UPDATE________________________________


UPDATE! Wheeljack35 gives us the heads up, the poll is complete, and the winner with an unconvincing 20% of the vote, was...

Soundwave.

Devastator and Grimlock each received 16% of the vote, Jetfire 11%, Ultra Magnus 9%, and Shockwave 9%.

Here's the link for the results page on the USA Today website.

Happy or sad about the vote? Obviously, we are a community that has many different tastes. It was really great of them to make that poll and give us some say in the process. The fact that there was no run away winner, shows just how many great characters there are, and that they have numerous options for the next movies.

As much as I wanted to vote for Soundwave or Grimlock, I had to vote for Shockwave because I think he would translate the best on screen. If they don't bring Megatron back for the sequel, I'd love to see him at the helm of the Decepticons and maybe ol' Starscream can have his chance at last in the 3rd movie. Or just bring Megatron back.

Not surprisingly, Soundwave's leading the pack, followed by Devestator and Grimlock.

Love to see Mirage in the next movie as well as Soundwave.

I voted Grimlock. C'mon we all love dinosaurs, but I have to admit, it was a hard choice, cause I'd like to see all of them, and can think of ways they would work in the movie.

I voted for Grimlock.. well, I would like to see Grimlock in the sequel as long as they keep him as he used to be. (maybe a bit smarter though)

It still was a hard choice to be honest. I would also love to see Soundwave, Shockwave or Ultra Magnus. But the list is a bit odd IMO.. What the hell are the Insecticons, Hot Rod and Ravage on that list. There are so many other and better characers (IMO): Prowl, Blitzwing/Astrotrain and others..

They probably should have used Shrapnel as the Insecticon mascot.

I voted for Mirage because they could really do some great stealth-mission stuff, and if they bring in the Autobots' 'not-sure-if-they-can-trust-him' aspect, it'd be great. However, I don't think they will. This is Hollywood, and they're obviously just going to try to aim for something which would result in greater visuals.

Hence, the logical victor is (not Shockwave, heh heh) Devastator. The giant robots transforming, combining, and laying waste to a city would probably do wonders for ticket sales.

Where the hell is Arcee? :sad:

That movie design is so cool, and alot of the fans have have mentioned how they would like to see her in movie #2. I'm even making a bunch of new sigs for those who want to see her in the next movie (see below), she should at least be in the poll somewhere...

I voted Devestator, but I would have like to see Prowl and have Prowl been Barricade in disguise.

As much as i would love to see a new soundwave (he is my favorite) i wont be able to deal with a SW with a retarded looking head. Ravage would be cool but then i think of what they did to frenzy. Seeing as how the autobots looked good in the movie ill play it safe and vote for my 2nd favorite bot of all time Hot Rod.

I'm sure that Arcee is already in the next movie seeing as how Hasbro has the toy made and all the CGI test shots have already been done. I wouldn't be suprised if wreckage shows up as well.

I would like to see a number of those guys in the sequel. But I picked the Constructicons because Dev's my top pick. Hopefully we'll see Ultra Magnus and Shockwave somewhere along the line. I'd like to see the Shockwave from the video game in the movies. I don't care too much for Soundwave in the movies. They did the boombox thing well with Frenzy, I think.

Mirage, there needs to be more Autobozos for the Decepticons to hunt and destroy, and I'd love to see something like (Ford GT) tearing through the streets. Although, Jetfire in the C-130 gunship alt would be awesome, plus not too far off his Cyb alt.

I would think that the most plausible ones right now for the sequel would be Jetfire, Soundwave, Mirage, Ultra Magnus and Hot Rod. Since the 2nd movie will still be kind of an introduction to the whole series, traditional alt modes should still take the form of existing modes that exist on Earth. It'll be hard to make it realistic for the insecticons, dinobots, ravage and Shockwave to start appearing, how would they find templates for these? I would want some of these characters to start appearing when both sides start settling down on Earth and begin to develop technology that allows them to expand their alt modes beyond Earth vehicles...and the technology to form combiners like Devastator.
