I can't remember if it was on this forum or another, but someone had a pic of the ZR-1 with it's hood up and the opening in the middle is shaped just like the autobot logo.

EDIT: Found the pic.

^****, that's a lot of archetypes for a movie that's supposed to feature the TF's in larger roles. And that spoiler....damn. Don't know if he deserves to have that happen to him.

I'm intrigued by the NASA angle but not sure how i feel about an unmentioned brother of Sam's. Also a lot of the characters seem like clones of Lennox and Epps...

That is way too many bodies to put on the big screen.

When are these people going to learn that I don't care about the fleshy commentators? Nobody does. For all of their fear about what a talking robot would look like, people were happy with it and wanted more. Stop wasting my time, Paramount.

Keep in mind though, based on the IESB story, most of these human characters sound like they're going to only be in 1-2 scenes.

I'm sure if you describe most of the humans from the first film they'd sound like one-note characters. Bay has an irritating tendency not to see this.

Another thing you guys need to realize Bay has stated there would be fake info...maybe not all of it is real, like Sam having a brother.

Bay also thinks very highly of his personal abilities, of which he's been disillusioned on quite a few times (the whole "hacking of his computer for the first draft" bit comes to mind).

Damn right. It's perfect. He's a great character too. Also, it'd be cool to see a flying car, imo.

I call 'rumour' on it myself. Unless Bay makes the film three hours long.

I don't really see the comparison. The key difference is that it is specifically stated that most of these human characters will appear in only one scene.

To be fair, I think we'll probably get something like 50/50 regarding the human-robot screentime ratio in TF2. Which is still better than the 70/30 we got in the first film.

Well those silly cops in TF1 only got a minute or two of screentime, so some of the cast in TF2 could end up with minor roles like they got.
