Multiple sources have received an interesting little list — a list that apparently shares the names and descriptions of all of the robots that we will see in the upcoming Michael Bay blockbuster, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
One noted absence is the name Megatron, which is kind of a head-scratcher even with the fact that he got dumped in the ocean at the end of the first. The first thing that comes to mind with things like this, is the fact that Michael Bay openly admitted that everything that came out about the movie over the course of production would be a flat-out lie. I assume most of these, if not all of them, are true, but there’s a gut feeling that it’s not a complete list is all I’m saying.
The most intriguing two are The Fallen, and obviously Devastator. The Fallen definitely sounds like he could be one scary presence and Devastator you need only gauge Steven Spielberg‘s quoted reaction to him featured below!
Click on over for the whole party.
Here is the list and descriptions of what you can expect to see based on information offered from both Yahoo! and USA Today.
OPTIMUS PRIME: The Autobots’ leader – alternate form: Peterbilt truck.
IRONHIDE: Weapons specialist – GMC Topkick.
RATCHET: Medic – Hummer H2.
BUMBLEBEE: Friend and mode of transportation for Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) – 2010 Chevorlet Camaro.
ARCEE: A female Autobot – motorcycle. Arcee is the only female and turns up as Megan Fox’s hot-pink motorcycle. Co-screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci say she was in an early draft of the first movie. “But we felt we needed to win the audience over before asking for that suspension of disbelief: a feminine alien robot,” Kurtzman says.
SIDESWIPE: Sideswipe, a candy-apple red Lamborghini in the original, joins the cast this time as General Motor’s silver Corvette Stingray concept car. Jolt is a new foot soldier, played in four-wheel form by the Volt, a forthcoming Chevy hybrid plug-in. Two of GM’s other concept cars (the Trax and Beat) play The Twins, nicknamed Skids and Mudflap.
JETFIRE: An older Decepticon who switches sides – SR71 Blackbird jet.
JOLT: The original toy was a Decepticon, but in the movie he’s a good guy – Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid.
SKID & MUDFLAP: a.k.a. “The Twins” – Chevrolet Beat and Trax concept cars.
STARSCREAM: Formerly Megatron’s second in command, he escaped at the end of the first movie; F-22 Raptor jet.
SCORPONOK: The mechanical scorpion that attacked the American troops in the desert.
SIDEWAYS: The Audi R8 seen crashing through a building in the trailer.
SOUNDWAVE: A cassette player in the original toys; his alternate mode will be a communications satellite. Usually teamed up with Ravage to play audio information.
RAVAGE: A four-legged, cat-like robot (pictured above). Known as a spy who records information on the Autobots and their allies. Screenwriter Alex Kurtzman says he’ll have a “new skill set” that should be a surprise for fans. Apparently Ravage and Soundwave will still work together in some fashion.
THE DOCTOR: A spider-like crawling robot.
WHEELIE: A small, radio-controlled truck.
DEMOLISHER: One of the Constructicons that transform into construction vehicles.
THE FALLEN: One of the original Transformers, he’s called “the most elemental bad guy” by the screenwriters.
The Fallen is an ancient robot, sort of the Transformers’ version of Lucifer. He’s one of the original robot aliens, and his defiance and arrogance led to his banishment into another dimension.
The screenwriters say that The Fallen holds the key to life on both Earth and Cybertron, the Transformers’ home planet.
CONSTRUCTICONS/DEVASTATOR: Seven Decepticons that join together.
These seven robots â€” Scavenger, Scrapper, Hightower, Longhaul, Rampage, Overload and Mixmaster â€” transform into construction machinery, but also link up with one another to form one gigantic robot stomper named Devastator.
“He’s made of vehicles designed to build, and he turns into is someone who loves to destroy,” Orci says. “He is an agent of absolute chaos.”
Bay says Devastator is the crÃ¨me de la smash and got a uncharacteristic reaction out of the film’s executive producer already.
“Spielberg saw it and said, ‘This is (expletive) awesome!’ ” Bay says, and adds: “It’s always nice when you can make him swear.”
