Pirates was good, the sequels, not so much... well, three was terrible, two was ok.

Robert Orci has revealed two names that are currently being looked at for the voice of the title villain in Revenge of the Fallen, and both names should be quite familiar to Transformers fans!

Seriously? There's a question? Go with the Nimoy!!! G1 Movie Galvatron was highly menacing. Welker can play crazy Galvatron in TF3.

Woah... Nimoy 100% Heck if they do the same thing to his voice that they did to Weaving's voice, dude, that'd be scary!

The current screenwriting team has indicated that they won't be coming back for TF3, as they don't want to get into a creative rut/be the "Robot Movie guys". Bay also indicates that he won't work on the project unless he gets a year off (i.e. Unless the movie comes out in 2012, not 2011 as-currently-stated.)

So we could see a creative shake-up. Just as long as it's less bumpy that X2-->X3, we should be okay.

Simon Furman could always be a last resort as writer. :evil2: (And yes, that sentence contained a Furman reference. The Last Resort is the nickname of the Autobot prison Garrus-9 in the IDW 'verse. :smile: )

Ah, the cast list!

You know on some levels a big green guy stealing the name of an even bigger green guy is some how fitting... it's like the pirates that started calling them selves "Blackbeard" after Edward Teach retired. (Of course he came out of retirement to kill those guys, and his long time rival then killed him.

So, on some level, the tank's name could have been Brawl and took the name "Devastator" so when people hear that "Devastator" is coming their way they run or surrender. As we saw, Devastator was not that great a fighter...

Wait, wait, wait, WAIT!!!!!

"THE DOCTOR?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!" Okay, if he turns into a white car, I KNOW Hasbro has implanted a monitoring device in my brain!!!!

I think "The Doctor" will probably be that microscope guy. Just a hunch...

Also, they don't mention that Arcee has two sisters, Chromia and another one whose name we don't know yet. (The three are seen chasing Sideways down in the trailer, after he bursts through that building.)

Interestingly enough, it seems that the rumor about Skids and Mudflap combining to form the ice cream truck initially is likely true. The truck is among the Autobots who shows up in alt mode at the end of the last issue of ROTF Prequel: Alliance #4, and then we get a glimpse of a robot who looks like one of the twins, but is all beat-up and white, on the final page.

Hope they make a toy of that!

You know, some one should retroactively make a tape that turns into a scorpion!

Well, they don't want to giveaway ALL the secrets, and they might be thinking of Arcee's combined form for this poster.

Fan character of yours, I take it? That would also make the joke of Hasbro following Nate and deleting web-pages after he posts their links no longer such a joke... ;x: At the same time, though, your mentioning that only amplifies that joke. :laughing:

The Doctor was a white one of these: http://www.tfu.info/1985/Autobot/MazdaT ... datype.htm but as a Decepticon I never owned any of the toys he could have potentially come with so I don't really know where he came from.

Although now that I think about it, my friend did have Seaspray, so maybe I got 'im in a trade. (I bought Seaspray years later from him at a yard sale.)

But since there's no official name for him, he's always going to be The Doctor to me.
