Im afraid we'll never again be able to use the words 'return' 'of' 'the' and 'revenge' without expressed written consent from HASBRO. :P

Wow... that could be interested in the sense that there may be new lines, either comics, toys, coming to Transformers Universe. :-?

Sounds like movie titles like:

Transformers 2: Revenge/Return of the Decepticons ala Star Wars Return/Revenge of the Jedi type deal...

That "Revenge of Unicron" bit has got me nervous.

:MAD: I don't want any returning of, or revenging of Unicron in any of of the new stories.

It won't be for NetJet... it has already been discontinued. Most stores that even have them are selling them at clearance now. It appears that it was a bomb. I looked into getting, but once I relaized that I wasn't buying an actual game when I bought a "key" for it, I just said the heck with it.

For those that don't know, the "keys" you would buy were, in a sense, games for the system. Though, they did not contain the actual game, only a special link to a Web site where the game could be accessed. Upon furthur inspection, Hasbro stated in the direction sheet for the system, which is viewable online, that they were not responsible for maintaining the site/server for to access these games past a certain date, after which you were pretty much screwed. Stupid concept if you ask me. :-x

transformers 2:revenge of unicron

kinda like the sound of that :mrgreen:

but i think it could be a continuation of the g1 movie in live action,
and the characters of tf1 with some new ones.
btw,if micheal bay "damands things to be awesome" then i geuss a planet-sized monster robot should do it.

And here I was thinking TRANSFORMERS: The Return and Revenge of the Decepticons on Cybertron of Unicron, would be a great title. :P

or, if you think about it the first 3 could be animated episodes of season 3-
return/revenge of the decepticons:could be the s3 pilot
return to cybertron-the repair crew could go to cybertron for the first time in the show outside of a flashback

Defnintely movie subtitles. TF2- Return of the Decepticons. No matter what anyone says, more and more evidence seems to lean towards that "fake script treatment"...

Interesting. For the movie game for TF2 perhaps? It would be developed around the same time as the movie wouldn't it?

It could possibly mean that we may be seeing Unicron in the movie.

Just throwing that out there.

...8D

Even though we haven't seen Unicron yet so he wouldn't be having revenge for anything we know about. Or you never know, it might be for a completely standalone game based on the movie.

Anything's possible.

Heck - these could be names for online mini-games on the Cartoon Network website. Some might be Movie related, others could be based on the Universe or Animated lines. They might even have a retro-themed game, set in the G1, Beast Wars, RID, or AEC Universe (Revenge of Unicron sounds like it would fit well in the latter).

Trademarked under video game category I believe, so yeah, not likely movies.
