A set of new images has recently been released to the press, here’s a quick run down of them from a variety of sources. Prime standing in front of the Sphinx looks awesome, as do the twins covered in sand whilst looking aghast.
The official Transformers website has updated with links to all the assorted games, banner creators, fan art etc. Also included are new wallpapers, buddy icons, screensavers and the Soundwave satellite mode navigation we saw on the UK TF2 site.
Tokyo, Seoul, Berlin, Madrid and London. Transformers 2 is traveling the world and creating tons of press in the process. Here are some videos and photos from the big events, each one revealing a different Megan Fox outfit, the Berlin one being particularly odd.
Playlist of Première videos
A small selection of professional and fan filmed shots from a selection of premieres, for those that couldn’t be there:
Coming Soon have posted some shots from a photography session in Paris, wherein Shia and Megan Fox stand against Transformers 2 standees for round after round of photos, probably rendering a flash induced headache. Now for some high resolution Megan Fox images!
The world première of Transformers 2 aired last night in Tokyo! We’ve got the pictures, video and most importantly — movie reports to best describe the event for all those that couldn’t attend.
The first report comes via the Don Murphy forums — obviously LOTS of spoilers herein!
Ok guys just got back! Don’t have much time to post, don’t wanna miss the train but here’s some quick stuff.
Movie was incredible, I liked it much more than the first! More action, more robots, less humans! Though there are some lame sexual innuendos like Wheelie humping Megan’s leg.
Anyway, Bay and the actors came right into the theater and introduced the film. I was tempted to scream “Don Murphy Stooges #1″ but I didn’t want to get led out by security!
The VA thing in the credits was way too fast, sorry guys. The Fallen was Todd something. Welker does voice Soundwave, and Devastator too. Devastator has one line, screaming his name. Soundwave only has a few lines but he speaks English. But he never comes down to earth and never turns into a robot. Bleah. Very little screen time, but at least he doesn’t get exploded which leaves things open for the third movie.
Mostly English, not much cybertronian.
The Twins were lame. As in the “bust a cap in you ass” stereotype. I could’ve done without them.
Jetfire was comic relief. He has a British accent and reminded me of a Monty Python character. He doesn’t “combine” with Prime in the normal sense, he gets fatally wounded and rips out his spark, killing himself so Prime can use his parts.
Wheelie is nothing like G1 Wheelie. He kinda reminds me of Rattrap.
Lots of kitchen bots. One was a Samurai too. Bludgeon?
Only named Constructicon is Rampage, and he is red.
Megatron is revived by some Constructicons and “The Doctor.”
Sideways never transforms, he is cut in half by Sideswipe in the first battle scene in car mode. Sideswipe is cool. Ravage is cool too.
There was a bot that looked like Blackout but he was not named. Blackout himself was never revived so I can’t say it was him. He did not speak and was not named in the credits. In fact in the last battle scene there were tons of, well, “repaints,” basically reused animation. So even after Devastator forms, there are still constructicons running around. And some Protoforms. I even saw a truck that looked like Bonecrusher…though I never saw him in robot mode. Scorponok is in the final battle too and is killed by Jetfire in about 2 seconds.
There are three motorcycles, but they appear to be named collectively Arcee. Not much screen time/lines for them anyway.
The term “Matrix of Leadership” is used, it’s a key that operates a device to draw energy from the sun.
Ok that’s enough for now, not gonna check this board again till tomorrow! I suppose this thread will be about 100 pages long by then so I’m sorry if I can’t answer everything.
Thanks again Nightbird for the tix!
Whilst Sora at the Michael Bay forums says,
I loved Transformers 1 so much, but I’m sure you’ll feel like the previous movie was just a dash of bitters in a glass of appetizer Martini. Be prepared to be impressed!
