Botcon attendees were treated to a very special preview of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen by Director Michael Bay. He talked with us about the making of the film and how it still isn't completed. He also made note that the footage we were about to be shown was not complete graphics wise but featured some MAJOR SPOILERS!!!

Warning!!! Do not read on if you want to avoid spoilers.





With our anticipation at its highest level, the attendees of Botcon roared into cheer as the first clip of the movie started. The footage started with John Turturro and Sam's roomate in the middle of a construction zone looking on to a group of construction vehicles surround them. The constructicons were revealed when Mixmasters Decepticon symbol is shown and Scavenger begins to transform. At the same time the other constructicons move closer to form Devastator!!!

Scavenger literally forces all the other constructicons into the gestalt ala Scorpion in Mortal Kombat. Tuturro then runs with Sam's roomate when the scene cuts to Sam and Mikaela running from Rampage.

Rampage begins chasing Sam's father when Sam jumps in front of him to draw his attention. Sam then says "Wait, it's not them you want. It's this, the MATRIX! He then holds up an item and continues to coax Rampage when Bumblebee arrives. The battle begins.

Rampage and Bumblebee fight ferociously with Bumblebee getting the better of Rampage when Ravage enters the fray. Using his hip cannons he blasts Bee and jumps on his back. Bumblebee then forces Rampage to the ground when Rampage lunges for Sam and takes Ravage and terrors him apart piece by piece.

Bumblebee then rips Rampages arm off and decapitates him.

More info to come.

Party at Paramount: $50.00.

Up close, rope-less photo opportunities with IronHide and Ratchet vehicles: $0.00, awesome.

Live performances by Stan Bush, Vince DiCola and band: $0.00, very cool.

Picture with Wierd Al: $0.00, nice.

ROTF Preview: $0.00, it was very sweet. Got to see what I wanted to see the most, the full combine sequence. :)

Tour of Paramount backlots: $0.00, neat.


And I think someone (who shall remain nameless, but not me) was so excited from seeing the preview, he forgot to go to the restroom before getting on the bus leaving Paramount and said "it's gonna be a long trip."...priceless. :mrgreen:

WTF does that mean, does he pull off his face and set them on fire?

I don't think he did it with the legs, he might have done it with the arms (the sequence was kinda fast)...but definitely did it with the head (Mixmaster). He shot out several tentacles (like Scorpion with his stinger), and dragged Mixmaster to connect with him.

The legs he just shoves his end (the upper leg) into each limb, one at a time.

Waitttt a minute....The Matrix is in this movie now? Was that the random thing Sam was holding in the trailer?

And I understand that bit about Devastator. He is shooting out those tendril things onto that pyramid in the trailer.

I just realized this might come across as being unimpressive...sorry...didn't get much sleep this weekend. :grin:


I'll try to rephase this part and hopefully convey better as to how cool it actually looked: Demolishor more like pile-drives his end with full force from really high up and slams it into the limb that is standing up as a leg already.

Wait a minute. How can Bumblebee beat Rampage when Devastator just combined, with Rampage forming the guy's left leg?

Darth Bombshell, good question. Maybe they were different clips and that one with Rampage takes places after the Autobots are able to cause Devastator to split up?

Yeah, maybe. Except that the Autobots don't split Devastator up. The US navy does. And he doesn't split up, either. He gets...erm...blown up.

SPOILER START










In the novelisation, Prime is killed by Megatron at the end of the forest scene. Sam brings him back to life with the Matrix of Leadership.

Demolisher dies in the Shanghai stuff at the start of the book but can be seen forming Devastator in the movie trailer.

Why is Bumblebee such a bad ass? Come on, are any of the Movie Decepticons not weak? How can anyone feel a sense of urgency when we know Prime or Bumblebee can whoop them all. :-?

The Rampage on Devastator is yellow. The Rampage fighting bumblebee is red according to the trailer. (2 bots)

Demolisher is not what's on Devastator that Scavenger Demolisher as shown by trailer is white with red strips. Scavenger is red with white stripes.

In the TV spot forms, pause at every frame during the Devastator transformation, you can see yellow tentacles/wires/claws qrapped around Mixmaster as he gets pulled up.

Just curious, is this that same scene? Or do we actually get to see Devastator TWICE?! The scene with Devastator in the TV Spot looked like it was in the Desert, especially when he starts sucking everything up.

I think there's 2 Rampages. The one BB fights in the theatrical trailer is kinda red, while we se on Devastator it's yellow. Also rmember the exclusive 12-hour teaset sowed BB owning up on the Red Rampage.

About Devastator:

I think the preview is the full sequence of that shown in the TV Spot. The angle showing Mixmaster being grabbed looks the same. But the preview scene seems to take place in a smaller construction quarry while the TV Spot seems to take place in a bigger area. But both are desert sandy area so maybe either unfinished CG work, since MB said CG (and sound) in the preview were not finished yet, or just different viewing angle. But man, I was in such shock watching and listening the sequence, it seems very fast and could have affected my judgement.


About Rampage:

In the trailer, while the foot chase Rampage was yellow, the actual fight sequence Rampage was redish (a little bit orange almost). The foot chase leads up to the fight scene. So the fight scene seems consistent with the preview. I don't recall seeing preview footage that ties directly to the S&M roof top jump so that yellow Rampage from the trailer might have been repainted by now. But yes, I seem to recall the preview combine sequence also had a yellow Rampage. Could be unfinished CG reason though.

I didn't see the tentacles in the TV spot, but I did notice something that seemed to be like a hand underneath Mixmaster that seemed to push him up toward Devastator. If the tentacles do grab hold of Mixmaster, maybe the "hand" underneath Mix aids the tentacles--the tentacles pull and the "hand" pushes...since I haven't seen the tentacles, I just assumed the "hand" pushed Mix up toward Devastator...

Okay, this has been bugging me for a while so I'm just going to it to anyone who knows the answer. Is Scavenger the same bot as Demolisher? The toy packages show 2 diffenent names between the single bot and the Devastor set, but they look the same. For anyone who knows, plz enlighten me (feel free to hide the answer to avoid spoiling for those who dont wanna be spoiled) Thanks.
