Hasbro has posted an article on Transformers.com to bring people unfamiliar with the brand up to speed with the movie. The article is called LEARN TO SPEAK THE VOCABULARY OF CYBERTRON, HOME PLANET OF TRANSFORMERS. It goes over characters from the Transformers brand, mainly plugging the new movie. It also pays a few respects to the old storyline, like the Nemesis being the starship the Decepticons used to crash land on earth. An interesting concept to stir up more hype for the new Transformers Movie hitting theaters on July 4th. To view the entire list of Transformers "vocab", click here.

I scrolled right down to S and didn't see "SLAG" after that I lost intrest.

I was expecting something more like that Klingon book(Trekies should realy get a life, I mean we're into this stuff but geeze). Then again, there realy haven't been to many cases where they didn't speak in an earth tounge.

Except of coure "Bawb Weeb Gran na Weep Ninnie Balm" or however it's spelt :???:

that's cool. it's so amazing to see how far transformes have come and that this year it's really going to hit the spotlight for a while. it'll eventually fade again but we'll still be here talking on the forums awaiting the next incarnation of tranformers.

The timeline isn't new, or at least the timeline IDEA isn't new. There was one just like that on their site's "Collector's section," or something like that.

My appologies to how cauge the news story title is. I am on a poor work computer and it chucks me out of explorer all the time. I'll fancy it up to the eye in a few moments.

I think it's a good idea for Hasbro to be doing things like that. If kids want the information, the first thing they will do is (if they have the internet) type www, the name of what ever it is they are interested in.com and hope for the best results. In this case I would say it would work splendidly.

That's why kids are idiots, and why Firefox has Google as the default homepage.

Isn't this the same timeline that was previously reported?

No, while your right about this timeline not being news, the one history page your talking about in "collectors" is more detailed than this one is while also leaving out the Pre-1984 and 2007 sections.

The only thing really new here is the vocab page.

Well, yeah, Transformers are real. You plug them into outlets so you can power your stuff.

Wow there are so many errors in there it is not even funny. JAZZ is not a white car, he is silver. Bonecrusher is not a military assault vehicle, he is a military mine clearing vehicle. I didn't think the Ark was going to be in this movie?

Funny how much of it refers to G1, but yet they changed it all for the movie. The other thing which struck me was that they said there were 21 original TF's. I wonder which 7 they left out 'cause there were 28 in the first series.

No, I meant it talked about Transformers like Cybertron and Primus and the allspark.

I was reading through the list and came across this:

DECEPTICON FRENZY™: Faction – DECEPTICON. Vehicle/Alternate Mode – boombox or other everyday gadget. DECEPTICON FRENZY is one the smallest DECEPTICONS and is often seen converted into an everyday gadget (eg, boombox) for purposes of spying on humans.



Does this mean the Transformers can now turn into anything they want at any time?

That is another one of the unfortunate aspects of the movie. TF's can "reformat" themselves and choose alternate modes. I think this totally destroys characterization as so many TF personalities are rooted in their altermode mode. Also explains why there are so many inappropriate choices for alt modes in the movie. They obviously feel is it irrelevant. Such a shame.
