Very cool. It's amazing how real they make this stuff seem and how much work goes into it. I loved this battle between Optimus and Megatron; I think it was done perfectly.

ILM has uploaded another behind the scenes video from the past to their ILMVisualFX channel. This time it's a look at the VFX of Revenge Of The Fallen. They discuss Michael Bays shooting style, and the work and detail that went into bringing Devastator to life. The video can be seen here, however it's been embedded below.

RotF? Way to be current ILM. Even without his immediate direction, all things Lucas still manage to recycle the past as the present… I-)

Steven Speilberg is the one who originaly brought this idea to life i still remember when he and dreamworks pictures announced that they were going to do a live action film.

I'm mad Jolt and Barricade are out, and glad the Twins are.

Jolt was killed in the comics so he's out.

I forget what happened to Barricade :-?
