Yeah. That's certainly not a complete list, just a sampling of characters.

Band members of metal band Mastodon are reportedly voicing some bots in ROTF, vid is actually quite old... Some parts can be considered NSFW I guess.

Anyone dissapointed about a Jetfire who walks with a cane? That seems pretty dumb to me. Also it seems like Arcee is a waste too. The Autobots don't need a tiny Autobot, they need some more bulk and fighting strength. Leave the speed and agility to Sideswipe and Bumblebee.

According to Bay (Well, that sorta files this under misinformation I hope) Arcee will in fact die.

I am Suspicious from nature (sometimes quite a bit) and from the look of Bay's face I say that he's a big liar...

Spoilers from the prequel comic:

Quote:
- The AllSpark still has unknown origins, but its power created The Fallen's race. That race was born on what appears to be a terrestrial planet. They become interplantary travelers, courtesy of The AllSpark.
- The Fallen's race determined that the AllSpark's power in not unlimited and must be replenished.
- They discovered that energy from a sun can be harvested to replenish the AllSpark. While the AllSpark's power is replenished, the sun dies.
- The AllSpark begins to change the race's terrestrial planet into a metallic planet.
- The Allspark provides the first Transformers to the race, to act as their workers who will locate suns and build the needed sun harvesters.
- The Fallen gets greedy and wants the power of the AllSpark for himself. He attempts to betray all of his "brothers" while another sun harvester is being built on another terrestrial planet.
- The Fallen's brothers apparently are onto his plan. They have trapped themselves in sarcophagus and do the same with The Fallen.
- Following the trap, a pyramid is being built around the sun harvester to hide it.
- As seen with the previous movie-universe comics, Optimus Prime sent the AllSpark into space to avoid it falling into Megatron's hands.
- The reason the AllSpark landed on Earth is because the AllSpark will detect and head towards sun harvesters.
- In Defiance, Megatron is turned evil and forms the Decepticons by the influence of The Fallen (who is trapped in the recovered sarcophagus). Towards the end, The Fallen continues to push Megatron to locate the AllSpark which in turn would help him to locate the harvester. Repowering the AllSpark will free The Fallen from his sarcophagus.
So apparently the movie's plot is going to be a cross between Stargate and The Mummy. Nothing original, but then the content of the plot is almost secondary to how it's told for this kind of flick, yeah?

I predict much whining to come.

Sounds fine to me. An interesting plot for a TF flick, if unoriginal. The idea of sun harvesters is pretty cool, as is the introduction of the Fallen as belonging to a particular race. Perhaps either could open the possibility of something so massive and destructive on a planetary scale as, say, Unicron... But, I still stick by my concerns something as massive as that would not work in live action film. (I hope to be proven wrong at some point - I have concerns Devastator is too big anyway!)

At the end of the day, I'll be satisfied with construction vehicles turning in to robots. The plot doesn't matter (and is unlikely to really make sense, when you stop to think a moment...)

OK, i got two problems with that plot.

1: It doesn't seem like the fallen will get too much action till the end, if at all.

2: That much detail? The plot was simple in the first movie, and i still didn't get it till i watched it a second time. To date, it's the ONLY movie i've ever watched more than once.

With all that Megatron tank mess, they still can't find a better spot for his head than right up front, obvious, in the open. At least his jet mode from the first movie had that piece of plastic to cover his nose.

I guess it'll help him to see when he's driving.

The new film's designs are all looking awesome. I love how Bay has gone further down the design route he touched upon in the first (although I'd guess, from all the arguing first time round, there must be many folks very annoyed by the even less traditional designs...). The movie design aesthetic is definitely my favourite among all the myriad TF lines.

SPOILER! (select to read)
Megatron looks a lot more imposing this time round, with the new hulking body, whilst retaining all his pointy bits. I don't at all mind the head being at the front of the tank - why not? It's just a weapon mode, really. He's sure not gonna blend in like that, head or no head! And if his head's armoured enough, why hide it? It looks like there are a load of panels which come in to play in tank mode, anyway.

The Fallen is just amazingly awesome - a great and totally demonic design. Can't wait to see him in action!

Sideswipe is totally cool - a car I'm very excited about (long time Corvette series fan) and kick-ass 'bot mode to boot!

Screamer is still Screamer - looking forward to finding out about those tatoos...

Ravage, ace. Twins, goofy, but they could be fun...

And Devastator - man, I can't wait to see him in the film! The design is fantastic.

Some pictures of a test shot of the toy showed up the other day with some concept artwork that I hadn't seen before. It seems hand drawn as opposed to the actual CGI renders, but I think it showcases the look even better.

The toy is still junk, though.
