Discussion Topic: Transformers 2

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2007-05-04 7:26 pm
Update: Official holiday weekend "Boycot Spider-Man 3 Weekend" continues.  Okay Transfandom, The bar has been set.   We've got to beat $59 million in day 1!   (For any Transformers traitors out there that went and saw the fim, I must ask, is the Transformers trailer paying in Spidey 3?  (PLEASE say yes!)

We declare today an official holiday, "Boycot Spider-Man Day!"  C'mon, the film looks fine and yeah, I'll definitely see it.  But our personal goal is to do everything in our power to help Transformers (overall) and opening weekend beat out the likes of Spidey and other supposedly decent summer blockbusters...   To that end, we are NOT seeing it opening weekend and encourage you to do the same!

(Thanks to Allspark and TFW2005 for the heads up) Many of you may have seen the LATimes has an article today interviewing Michael Bay and talking about Transformers.  It's a pretty good read and optimistic about the prospect of TF doing well, although still the underdog next to films like Spidey....  Here's one outstanding quote:

"...The studio likes what it has seen and is already developing a "Transformers" sequel script..."

Music to our ears!!!  Now here's my question for us all to ponder:

Among all the many hundreds of Transformers characters who didn't 'make the cut' to become characters in the first Transformers movie, who would *you* most want to see introduced, if Transformers 2 ever gets made???

Here's my vote. If they can find a way to make a robotic scorpion in TF1, then they just absolutely MUST find a way to get Grimlock and the Dinobots in don't they???
Knight wing said,  - 2007-05-04 19:58:17
How about Ultra Magnus, but ONLY IF he had a trailer/exo-armor. More relasticly I'd like to see a full seeker line up, Hot Rod, and Kup. I'd also like to see Soundwave. But, I have no idea what to make for his alt mode a boom box just wouldn't do.
Side Swipe said,  - 2007-05-04 20:01:30
Isn't it obvious? I want to see an '86 Pontiac Fiero GT as Side Swipe.
I beleive a Dodge Magnum would suit Soundwave.
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-05-04 20:05:19
unicron, shockwave, one of the combiners (probably bruticus since they already have brawl and blackout), omega supreme, jetfire/skyfire, some female transformers,
other primes (sentinel and such), alpha trion, many others I can think of but these are the best right now. Would be cool if megs died and decepticons were led by a fembot.
imfhq said,  - 2007-05-04 20:06:01
i would say hot rod or rodimus.
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 20:41:14
somehow, not to make you sad or anything, but I dont see a character like hot rod making it into the final productions. I see maybe a soundwave,devastator,thundercracker,my favorite gothic seeker skywarp, or someone like rumble showing up.
Gunblade said,  - 2007-05-04 21:18:44
Jetfire definately on the autobot side, Soundwave on decipticons.
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 21:24:24
I agree with knightwing, soundwaves boom box has to kick the bucket once and for all!
powder man said,  - 2007-05-04 21:44:54
what about unicron
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-05-04 21:50:51
Off topic as a comment on my previous post if megs was offed for a female decepticon leader she would need a sleek shape like an X-29 alt mode. If I had the chance to design the character I would make her a purple X-29 that would make her look vaguely like a female G1 Cyclonus. She would need to be faster, more agile, and smarter than most TFs. Instead of a slow reloading, hard hitting cannon like megs she would need a fast repeating machinegun like weapon. Like comparing Quake2's BFG to its hyperblaster. Also I would give her Skywarp's shortrange teleport ability. Her name would have to be something like Terrax or Trillion. All that said though she wouldn't fit into this topic because we are talking about TFs that already exist :(.
So I will stop fantasizing and just end this comment.
Tffan'85 said,  - 2007-05-04 21:52:40
Cyberwuss had some good suggestions with Unicron and some of the combiners. But I would like to see Jetfire for one because the Decipticons already have a jet a TF in the air compared to none on the Autobots side of the ball. For combiners, maybe Superion and Devastator. But having Soundwave as a Dodge Magnum would be pretty cool!!
Autobots- Ultra magnus, the dinobots, Hotrod, Omega Supreme, Arcee, and blaster

Decepticons-soundwave,galvatron, shockwave, ravage,constructacons, bruticus
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 21:56:37
yes! arcee is a must have since shes gonna be in the game! and I would also like to see shockwave.
Perceptor said,  - 2007-05-04 21:59:42
Why no chorus of agreement for Grimlock?! (Slag and Snarl too!) Can you imagine a real robot T-rex running around NYC?! Trust me when I tell you, they can make a silly little robotic scorpion look cool. Grimlock would absolutely haul @$$!

It's easy to imagine them bringing Jetfire in. Just like in the G1 days, the Autobots could use some air power... I'd be in favor of that. I'm also totally w/ you guys in the need for a female TF. Not sure I want her as a new Decepticon leader tho.

Unicron??? Hm, lets save him for Transforemrs 4! :) Me, I'd vote for the same characters in TF1, but throw in Jetfire and a couple of Dinobots, versus a new decpticon combiner team (any one...) Lets start drooling for TF2!
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-05-04 22:01:56
Swoop was my favorite dinobot...
Shy said,  - 2007-05-04 22:02:11
Hot Rod, Kup, Ultra Magnus (with or without exo suit), human exo-suits, and, of course, Grimlock.

Decepticons: Soundwave, Shockwave, the other seekers, insecticons, MAYBE Trypicon near the end..

in general, fembots, triple-changers, combiner teams, and unicron would all be awesome to see, or at the very least mentioned, or in unicron's case, foreshadowed. :-D
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 22:26:56
Im going to have to agree with perceptor, I wouldn't really like a female decepticon as a major villian. though it does sound cool for a character, not really good for a leader.Grimlock would be a cool character just as long as he didn't use the lingo he did back in the 80's! also, if any of you would like to join in on a guild that I am currently forming on please respond. I am in need of a Decepticon only army. when you get to gaia you'll have to create a profile though so if have you have a slow computer like the one that I have back home, I wouldn't recomend hurting yourself over this. my member name is also Lord megatron. just send me a mail.
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 22:31:07
VETO TO THE SPIDEY!!!! at least we wont deal with him in the future developements because I heard somewhere that after his third installment, the spider is dead.
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-05-04 22:44:48
I realize this isn't a message board and I am only joking when I say this in response to this comment:
I wouldn't really like a female decepticon as a major villian. though it does sound cool for a character, not really good for a leader.

But I think you only said that because you have a megatron complex :(. Nice to see the character is cool though.
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 22:59:07
yeah it is a good idea for a female decepti, just not for a leader. good try though, cyberwuss, let's look to the stars and hope for the best.we really do need a message board for might I be able to suggest this?
Wing Streaker said,  - 2007-05-04 23:01:26
Some of the transformers you all mentioned would not make since. How about Rail Racer(three bullet trains), Blurr has maybe a Porche, Cliffjumber as a hatchback of some sort and Cosmos as an actual spaceshuttle.
Jumpercliff said,  - 2007-05-04 23:01:48
I think they should start with the rest of the 84's (Huffer, Cliffjumper, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, ect.) and maybe Wreck-Gar.
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-04 23:12:35
I think that unicron should wait for the third and die in the fourth maybe he'll suffer from Davey Jone's sendrom for those of you familiar with pirates of the Carribean 2 and 3. That way we'll get twice the unicron and twice the fun of seeing an ACTUAL PLANET be devoured.
JetFire said,  - 2007-05-05 09:36:31
There r quite a few, here r some of them: Shockwave, Soundwave, Unicron, Dinobots, 2 combiners, 1 for each side, Jet/Skyfire, and Arcee or some other female Autobot.
springers fan said,  - 2007-05-05 09:56:00
I would like to see hot rod, kup, the dino bots, arcee (or any other female transformers), maybe some beast war transformers or a combinator transformer like the constructacons forming devastatetor. or maybe a triple changer like springer from the cartoon movie (be able to go from one from to another and then to robot form).

as to sound wave why not a boom box. it looks like little frenzy in the movie is a boom box of some sort. maybe make soundwave a satalite car like a news van or something. but if they have soundwave they better have laser beak and the other "cassettes" transformers like frenzy. they don't have to be "cassettes" but just little transformers that work for soundwave. like if sound wave is a news van, make laser beak be the satalite dish or the news camera (like in transformers armada).
Knight wing said,  - 2007-05-05 11:36:30
You just said yourself why not a boombox for Soundwave. His "cassettes" need to be incorperated into his alt mode. Frenzy is alreday a boombox so Soundwave would have to be something bigger. I'd actually like to see him done in the concept of the Cybertron Soundwave. A jet of some kind where the bombs on the wings were his cassettes.
lord megatron said,  - 2007-05-05 11:57:03
Ok, I've got one, how about since soundwave's minnions have to incorperated into his alt mode how about if he was some sort of decked out car and frenzy could be folded up when in vehicle mode and could be put into soundwave's dashboard to act as an upgraded sound system. And when he transformed he could posess the ability to still powerlink with his smaller bretheren to make an over-the-sholders mounted harmonic wave cannons sort of like the way classics bumblebee is with his jet pack.
rayimusprime said,  - 2007-05-05 13:50:17
by the way, no transformers trailer in the previews...i was pretty was all stuff everyone knew was coming out anyway like "pirates" and "shrek."
Jason said,  - 2007-05-05 14:13:42
I'm hearing a lot of call for tripple changers, as well as the dinobots and combiners... so why not dream. We know they wouldn't combine anything like G1, they'd be way more complicated! Also Grimlock wouldn't really fit the "trying to be in disguise motif" so he should clearly be a big truck or tank that turns into a robot AND a robo T-rex. On top of that, who hasn't dreamed of seeing a really kickass dinobot combiner team. So pick another dino bot, give them the same triple changer treatment, and make them very intricately combine. Hey they did it in the Energon line. Also Brawl should bring in his buddy Blitswing and form the Combaticon combiner. Now that would ROCK.
Perceptor said,  - 2007-05-05 15:04:47
No TF trailor in Spiderman3???? What the heck??? That stinks!
Darkton said,  - 2007-05-05 18:26:07
Just because something has the potential to be better doesn't mean you should be vengeful if what you're hoping for doesn't happen. You are seriosly overreacting. Boycotting Spider-Man 3 will get you an angry mob at your doorstep, looking for your blood. Sometimes things work, sometimes they don't. Just because they don't doesn't give you the right to get all uppity about it.

I will wait until things quiet down before I state my suggestions.
Perceptor said,  - 2007-05-05 19:44:17
C'mon man! I'm just havin a little fun. I love the spidey flicks and fully plan on going to see it. Don't take me too seriously or anything...

You need spidey? check this out:

Lets play this game! Which do *you* prefer?

red/blue spandex or red/blue reinforced titanium plating (OP)?
Kirsten Dunst (yucky!) or Megan Fox (yummy!)
Runny black alien ooze or transforming alien jet/50ft humanoid war machine?
radioactive spider or ALLSPARK!?
Whiny brat Harry Osborn or whiny always-in-2nd, Starscream?

You catchin' my drift here? 'nuff said!
Scorpomike said,  - 2007-05-05 21:28:26
I don't give a $hit about Spiderman. Spiderman blows!!! I'd like to feed him to dragon Megatron from Beast Wars.
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-05-05 21:29:16
Ha, Megan Fox wins hands down! That being said I'm going to see SM3 because Venom is my favorite spiderman villain and I've already seen the first 2. I still expect Transformers to step on all the other superheros like bugs though. At least SM3 isn't a DC comic movie the best of which was Batman Begins. (Marvel > DC)
Cheetor2 said,  - 2007-05-06 10:11:39
Sorry fellas, I saw Spider-Man 3 on opening day and I have to say it was awesome. Transformers is still going to beat out everything else out there.
skullcruncherprime said,  - 2007-05-06 11:30:30
good chance that dinobots will be in the second one,sector 7 anyone?ya know grimlock trashing construction site?,anyways arcee, paradron medic?also dinobots in holo disguise in a museum{dinosaur displays]wheeljack?
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-05-06 12:32:53
I read somewhere that the vids on sector7 are fanmade virals that sector7 just put on their site and not official production stuff :<. On the topic of me spazzing out about fembots I hope they make a female insecticon.
megatron said,  - 2007-05-06 14:20:20
lets not worry about spidey his just a insecticon that we can crush .this is the last movie anyway . tf has 2 more on the way.and plus theres more tf fans out there then spidey fans .we will hit at least 70 million first day.
Grumpy Transfan said,  - 2007-05-06 16:08:57
I want to see Cliffjumper.

Oh. Don't know about it in your markets.. but in Saginaw, MI at the local theater.. first trailer they showed when I went to see SM3... was Transformers. Should be noted that the packed place was.. excited when they saw it. I'm hoping this movie breaks some records.

WarEagle!! said,  - 2007-05-08 09:09:15
