So according to WIkipedia Wheeljack and Mirage (and is Red) join the autobots, Skids and Mudflap got cut. Jolt and Arcee were not even mentioned. Interesting.

Arcee was killed in ROTF, what?

And didn't people spot Skids in one of the new trailers?

Well yes, rumors were that at least one of the twins would still pop up, this being skids. However it was said by Bay himself that neither of the twins would by in it.

This was the same Bay the one who said that the Fallen and Megatron won't be in the second movie, right?

The very same, I suspect Skids will be in the movie still. Maybe cannon fodder?

Thats some pretty good detective work.
SPOILER! (select to read)
And he is on the moon with all the Decepticon whale-blimps. . .

It would make a nice plot twist. Maybe its Sentinel's idea to leave Earth, but he's a stinkin' Decepticreep and Optimus comes back and kicks the appropriate level of booty . . .

Michael Bay insists that the Twins are not in the movie and offers $25,000 for anyone who can spot them in the movie. Personally I'm not buying it, and when they do appear, he'll be all like 'oh, I fooled you, I'm so clever snigger snigger'.

New TV spots, people!

'Secret' and 'Everything'.

'Secret' is just a rearrangement of the first two trailers, but 'Everything' has quite a bit of new scenes. There is our first look at

Mirage, if the IDW prequel comics are anything to go by for prototype designs. Also, we get a short glimpse of Optimus Prime going up against that massive tentacle Decepticon.

Yep.

Looks like Mirage.

The 'Everything' trailer was pretty damn epic if I say so myself.

Is it so hard to make him blue?

We have enough red autobots. Maybe not in the movie, but certainly in the toys. I'd love a cool sports car that was blue dark metalic blue (Jolt sucked). (or purple like Binal-Tech Laserwave)

Sacrilege! Jolt rulz da skoolz!

Didn't Bay explain Prime couldn't be all red, not could Sideswipe, due to some issue with film and the ability to show red?

Didn't make any sense to me at the time, as other films have successfully showcased red cars...

Nice that they finally have a red Autobot on film! Don't really care about whether there've been a lot of red non-film toys in the movieverse lines, there sure haven't been in the actual flicks!

'Everything' is very nifty!

With the designs and action sequences in these trailers, looks as if a plot is unneccessary (but would be a nice bonus!).

Thuis months SFX has an interview with one of the SFX guys where he talks about the problem Prime (and presumably Mirage) presents being the difficulty of doing red convincingly in CGI. Why red is harder than other colours I've no idea, but it seems to be genuine. I guess that after three films they've just gotten better at it. Or Mirage is going to die horribly after three seconds of screentime.

Regardless, Mirage looks cool, and it's nice to have a red Autobot at last! A few minutes would be great, longer even better.

Was all tree Arcee bots killed or did one survive? I thought one made it.

Well if the prequel comic is to be believed....

SPOILER! (select to read)
All three survived. But not all survived the comic to make it to movie 3. I'm not sure if any survived the comic. It was really confusing.

Elita is dead (until they next revive her again, she's cheated death twice now, that bitch) but Chromia and Arcee survived, apparently wounded. Why Barber loves them so much, I have no effing clue.


Regardless, screw the Arcee sisters! Here be new TV Spot, 'Biggest Adventure':

Linkin Park's new "Iridescent" video shows us the first imagery of
SPOILER! (select to read)
Megatron's transformation. You see it around the 2min30sec mark.


'Iridescent' on MTV UK

SPOILER! (select to read)
Hmm... there's something about that transformation sequence that's different to all his other, past transformations. I'm not entirely sure what it is, but to me it seems... I dunno... kinda slow. Careful. All his past transformations by comparison have been swift, frenetic...violent. This one isn't. Plot point, maybe?

Also, really digging the way he reaches up to pull that hood down over his head just as he finishes transforming.


I'm not really a fan of this song. Or their new album, actually... For me their music has drifted away from where they started. The song fits the feel of the film, don't get me wrong..., but as music, it's just not for me.

Times change, sure, and music changes with them... but Linkin Park have changed their music just a little bit too much. I preferred them during the days of Hybrid Theory and Meteora, and maybe even Minutes to Midnight in some places. But not this new stuff - it's a step too far away from who they were when they began.
