No. Shockwave. (This is not a spoiler. This is well known information at this point.)

OMG a movie character with the same background story as his namesake? Somehow, it just doesn't sound right, hehe.

After reading the description, I'm not sure what to think.

It seems as though the time travel aspect of it is in the film, however, since it's during the Space Race era, it might be handled better than the "treatment" version of events.

I'm not a big fan of the idea, I'm really not, but at least it's getting further into the fantastical and less from reality, which is what science-fiction/fantasy is supposed to do.

This is why ROTF worked for me. With a better writer and keeping it more in tune with G1 roots, this might just be the movie to win over quite a few people.

Makes somewhat sense.... But I still think this is the crappiest plot since Spider-Man 3. The dang movie gave me chronic diarrhea.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: For those unaware of the joke, I was just kidding, so don't start dissing me out now. We're all entitled to our opinions.

every other mention of the plot always said the movie would show us that there was a Transformers connection to that space race from the 60s. this description makes it sound like its a current thing, silly amazon.

i mean it be a little hard for Sam to be involved in something that took place when his parents were just children themselves. lol although i guess there could be some time travel in there but i hope not. lol

Time travel to the 1960s, huh? What's next??? A revelation that Starscream is the lone gunman on the grassy knoll? #-o

Why is it that the more I learn about this movie, the more I feel like I (or many of you) could write a more cohesive storyline that does justice to the characters and brand? I'm now terrified that this movie will be even worse than ROTF.

Space race is probably used as a loose term here, in reference to technology the two countries gained from the TFs, not events from the '60s. It's not like we ever went very far from home in the "space race" back then anyway - no farther than our moon.

I think what TF3 will really be about is the Autobots battle with the Department Of Transportation over getting proper licenses and what type of vehicles they should be categorized as. It's all in the title abbreviation, really.

That's why I'm waiting a few weeks to see people's reactions to it before I spend money on it. Also I think we all could write better than ROTF

This is just the info that Bay revealed a few months ago. Nothing new actually.

Wait...that wasn't him?

Anyhow, besides the very odd Space thing, seems...not to tell much.
What's weird is weeks ago I had a dream of "TransFormers 3" and it involved space and the moon...

But of course, I will still see it.
