Transformers Continues to Rock at the Box Office

We concede, Harry Potter knocked Transformers out of the #1 slot at the weekend box office, but standings are still staggeringly positve.  According to one article, the film has now a domestic (U.S.) gross of over over $222 million.  I found this article on Box Office Mojo (pardon the pun!) comparing July 4th opening films of the last 5 years.  It's outstanding to think that in less than two weeks, Transformers has already exceeded the total domestic gross of  every other one including Superman Returns, War of the Worlds, Terminator 3, and Men in Black 2, with the only exception of Spider-Man2. 

Horrah for Transformers and the fandom!

I do like other things besides transformers, but its better than any other film this year. Just wait until the sequel. I've recently found out star wars episode 3 still made more cash, being my second favorite movie. But this is only the first week for transformers. GO DECEPTICONS!!

I heard in Transformers: 2, Shockwave and Soundwave are gonna be in it with their G1 heads. I also saw pics somewhere (I think my mom show me on a site) Shockwave is a tank (non human tank) with his G1 nozel style and Soundwave unfortunently has no alt. mode yet. I also read (on the same site my mom showed me) that Optimus get a trailer that laches to his truck mode and combines with him in robot mode. Whether these rumor are true IDK, ike i said my mom showed me the site and whether it's credable IDK.

That Optimus whi has a trailer who combines with him...could it be Ultra Magnus instead? If so, let's hope he's more than just another "White Prime".

At this point any info about a sequil is pure speculation. Here are the only verifiable bits we know about the sequil. One: There will be a sequil. Two: DeSanto has ideas on how to bring the Constructicons and Dinobots into the movie. That's it. That is all we know. And just because DeSanto has an idea doesn't mean we will see it on screen.

For a sequel I am still hoping for fembots and combaticons instead of constructicons. Combaticons are the perfect mix of tough (constructicons) and speed, brains (stunticons). The other combiners are just wannabes next to him. Devastator being too slow and Stunticons without enough firepower. Not to mention the colorscheme of constructs makes them all look the same :p. Omega supreme as a space shuttle or something would be cool.

I like combiners that have a more uniform colorscheme because it looks better in a combined form than a scrambled mess of colors does. I am all for Bruticus though, as long as he is like the BW combiners and not like the Scramble city ones. I like complex combining processes. It makes the combined form look more like an independent character than just four bots acting as another bot's limbs.

I like complex transformation's to but I think Soundwave (Cybertron), Mirage/Dreadwing (energon) and Unicron have the most complex ones ever. Movie Megatron has the hardest one ever made I h8 doing his legs when I'm going to vehiscal mode.

The movie was a major disappointment. Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg wrapped up Armageddon and spit-shined it with a Transformer's title.
Megatron was without his signature physical characteristic (A large foreboding shoulder canon). He transformed into a jet and there was not significant development with Starscream besides "you failed me again."
Fight scenes were chaotic and the plot was rushed. It would have been agreeable to see Megatron (and co.) seek planet Earth exclusively for energon from crude oil or electrical sources. The confusion between that goal and the other of chasing a giant cube created far too many sub-plots (i.e. touching any piece of machinery creates spastic robots). I was more interested in seeing a decepticon motive directed at the scarcity of natural resources. It seemed to lend itself nicely to the world situation.
I found Prime and co., stumbling through neighborhoods like clowns, to be a poor attempt at slapstick and utterly disagreeable to the early development of their characters. The FBI scene in the car was cheesy and overdone.
I found the character of Frenzy to be as annoying as Jar Jar Binks from Star Wars Ep. 1-3. Devastator was a tank?? Im afraid the list continues for me, and as I see that so many of you were in favor, I wont rain on the parade by venturing any further. I am sorry if I am a naysayer along these lines, but I wanted to make room for another viewpoint. And of more importance, I am very particular with this topic because tf was a vital part of my youth and something I felt needed to be done with surgeon-like attention to detail (in regards to both plot and art). However, I realize that my expectations cannot begin to cover those of every other TF fan.

Let this mark the beginning of the cybertronian wars.......

Rid Ultra Magnus had the hardest transform in my opinion.

The Devastator thing still continues to bug me - I find it hard to understand why Hasbro are not shouting about it (behind the scenes or otherwise) its made them look foolish when all their products say Brawl and the Movie says Devastator.

Another thing to wait for the DVD or to see if Bay did it deliberately or if it was an accident.

As if it was an Accident and if they did have funds for a DVD exclusive extra kicking about they could have used a portion of those funds to fix the UK Print's subtitle... and while they were at it put back the missing "Float like a Butterfly" sound clip Bumblebee is supposed to play during his introduction.

I'll be interested to see if they actually have the sense to re-edit the movie for DVD as so many scene are unclear as it's currently mixed.
