Great TF news just doesn't seem to let up!  From more all-new character pages to more TF live movie sweentness!  MTV has an interview with Shia LeBeouf.  New and very interesting commentary.  I like Shia already.  In addition to having IMHO the perfect look to play the young Spike Witwicky, he had this to say,

"Transformers: The Movie,' that was my sh--," an enthusiastic LaBeouf said of the 1986 animated film. "It was that and Yogi Bear. That's what I grew up on. Those were my movies, and I'd watch them over and over again. I must have seen 'Transformers: The Movie' 70 times. ... I know what it means to you guys. I know what it means to the fans."

Among other news I hadn't heard before, "Also in the works is another trailer, which would likely debut around the holidays and feature a transforming Bumblebee, Optimus Prime speaking and the same "wah-wah" noise that signified a transformation in the classic cartoon show."

"Bumblebee has the most screen time of any of the characters," producer Don Murphy said of the charismatic Camaro who makes first contact with humans through Witwicky. Murphy said the Decepticon is most likely to be a breakout character. "[Jet transformer Starscream] is the one leading the Decepticons in trying to free Megatron. ... Character-wise, he's just the most ruthless. When humans are in the way, humans must be destroyed."

"Transformers" will shoot "Armageddon"-esque world-under-siege shots in Boston, New York and other major cities — as well as at the Pentagon, which would make it the first post-9/11 movie to do so. Several of the filmmakers expect the flick to get a PG-13 and also mentioned hopes for a sequel in 2009 that would reveal additional characters.

Also a fair amount of revelations about the parts various other actors play...
  I must admit, the whole discussion of "The Energon Cube" has be a bit concerned...  We shall see...  Thanks to the allspark for the heads up.

Personally I think they are reinventing the Transformers. But I don't think that is a bad thing. I'd rather them do that than give us a two hour repeat of the first season of Generation 1. I can't wait. I seriously can not wait for this movie to come out.

I like the looks of the Autobots, and Shia is a perfect fit for Spike. They want to make the Decepticons look more evil, I can understand that.

I'm excited. They're making it easy to be down on this movie. But, except that it is a "new" transformers and it is just as easy to really look forward to it.
