Empire Magazine content

DocWho at 2008-12-29 8:20 pm has information from the upcoming Empire Magazine, with some new information about ROTF from official sources. 

You can find the information here, but there are spoilers.

Go to and type in the title to the movie. You'll see the synopsis. MEGs is coming back thanx to ole Scorponok and Starscream is bringing reinforcements from Cybertron.
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-29 22:54:34
Okay, so Empire Magazine says Megatron is out of the picture, where IMDB says Megatron is back in the game thanks to Scorponok. Nothing like conflicting reports, so who's wrong and who's right?
Autobutt said,  - 2008-12-29 23:25:30
idk...i think that its too late to say that the Megs is just a toy. They wouldnt leave him out of ROTF since he already has a toy. Why would construction vehicles be in Eygpt? and just because they used a 50' camera crane doesnt mean the bot is gonna be that tall..they wouldnt use a crane just as tall as the bot;theyd want one taller for better angles.

On another note-
hieroglyphics: i spy...
-2 aircraft looking things

I know this is gonna ignite a firestorm of comments, but I'm just gonna say that I for one am glad that Megs is (potentially) not returning. I wasn't real crazy about his movie persona, and I'm just getting sick and tired of killed-off characters getting magically brought back to life for sequels. It just gets old. (Sorry Jazz fans. I'd rather he stay dead too.)
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-29 23:39:36
>>No way would the make a just toy character, especially if its Megatron.

Um, Megs has been made in several toy-only forms that never appeared any fiction.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-12-30 00:04:17
Thanks for reminding me Sabr xp.
It makes more sense now (kinda).
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-30 01:25:27
Well, its hard for me to gauge how I feel about movieverse Megatron. He had all of like fifteen minutes of screen time. Heck, in the movie he hadn't been online for like five minutes before he started his verbal smack down on Starscream (which convinces me that Starscream was one of the F-22's strafing Megatron in the fight, just to get back at him). I for one would like to see Megatron back in the second because it's plausable he could be resurrected. He took in the entire All Spark. We don't know (in movieverse) what that would do to him, despite the "theories" Optimus and the Autobots had (how do they know it would destroy him? Has anyone ever tried it before?).

But Jazz probably should stay dead (sorry Jazz fans). He had a good-ish run in the movie and his death marks how outgunned the Autobots really are, and make room for other characters.

If Magatron is resurrected by the part of the All-spark he absorbed fine everybody else stays dead, however if his resurrection is not due to the All-spark that means everybody else can come back to life too
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-30 12:40:33
Agreed, Agent X. Like I said, it's plausable due to the All Spark for Megatron to come back, but since no one else died from an All Spark over does, they need to stay dead.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-30 14:50:44
"We have the technology. We can rebuild him." XD

So, if Megs isn't in the movie, why do other places say he is, but only for about 17% of it?
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-30 15:41:52
Wow, that may actually be a bit more screen time then he had in the first movie.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-12-30 16:25:17
It just occured to me...what if Megatron is only in ROTF for flashbacks? It could explain why he has a Cybertronian tank mode.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-30 17:45:25
But he had a Cybertronian jet mode in the first film and in all the prequels he appeared in.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-12-30 18:11:33
Well now thats something thats bothering me. Why does he have a Cybertronian alt mode?
Black Starscream said,  - 2008-12-30 18:22:05
The tank mode is somewhat more earthern looking so most likely megs will come back. Back before the movie came out rumors were going around that the jet was only a pre earth form and that he would scan a tank as his new mode. Strangely enough I would rather see Jazz come to life rather than megs. Anyway if megs does come back, he and Starscream need more screen time.
On a completely unrelated note, today I receveived my Micron Legend Ironhide Supermode and the four galaxy force kabaya microns, all with boxes >XD!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-30 18:47:40
ML Ironhide Super Mode... that would be the equivalent of... Armada Powerlinx Demolisher, correct?
starscreamer said,  - 2008-12-30 18:55:51
megatron will appear. i hope.
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-30 19:09:19
The "cybertronian tank" mode may be Megatron's way of compensating for the massive amounts of structural damage he recieved in the first movie. He just may not be able to configure into a jet anymore and had a tank as an alternate mode for such occassions. Thinking back to the leaked images of Megatron and Ravage, Megatron's left arm looked rather skeletal, maybe indicating this damage in his robot mode.
Black Starscream said,  - 2008-12-30 20:09:48
That's an interesting idea. It would make perfect sense, especially with all the structural damage being dumped into an ocean and sinking to deep pressures would cause. Although for some reason I doubt the tank will be Cybertronian.
(and yea, Ironhide Supermode is Powerlinx Demolisher)
Blaster said,  - 2008-12-30 20:54:26
I can't wait to see the constructicons!
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-30 22:09:50
Absolutely. Does anyone remember what the last count for the Constructicons was? I'm thinking it was 9, which would account for 2 lower legs, two thighs, a core body, two upper arms, and two lower forearms with hands. I could be wrong though.
Black Starscream said,  - 2008-12-30 22:56:01
What the heck? Nine constructicons??!! That sounds so devastating!
Sidewinder said,  - 2008-12-31 00:25:28
I believe I read a report on it, but honestly at this moment I cannot remember where. It stands out in my mind because it was a number higher then six and it struck me as a bit excessive. When I do the mental math, it makes sense to me, but also says that Devastator will be significantly taller then 50 feet. At least he should be.
Scorpomike said,  - 2008-12-31 02:52:31
I think Megatron will be back and in tank mode. It's possible that he gets brought back to Cybertron for a rebuild. That explains the Cybertronian look. It would be cool if Shockwave did the rebuild. I think Bay is trying to fool us again. Why else would the movie be called Revenge of the Fallen.
primeoptimus said,  - 2008-12-31 10:25:27
bay also said that there is 40 robots.

so your your telling us the main villian is dead,and in his place are devestator and a bunch of random bots we'll probably hate before we even see the movie.

and megatron's new form has appeared in the ROTF prequel comic already,so how can he explain that now?
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-31 13:45:39
When I said "prequels" earlier, I meant in the prequels to the FIRST movie, not ROTF.
