Default I'm Convinced That Arcee Will... [Spoilers]

... probably die in the first 20 minutes of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

I posted this same thread at TFW2005. Think about it:

The casting call for female motorcycle riders asked for only a day's work on the Bethlehem, PA set:

Quote:
female motorcycle rider to do a days work on Transformers 2.
source

The only images we've ever seen of the Arcee bike(s) were from the Wal-Mart video, from the Bethlehem set in early June (Bay himself even mentions that they "crashed a bike" in the first shot):





source

we know that the action scenes filmed in Bethlehem, the only place we've ever actually seen Arcee(s), is the opening action scene of the film:

Quote:
Filmmakers will shoot one of the movie’s opening scenes at the old Bethlehem Steel site next month and pour more than $500,000 into the city’s economy in the process, Callahan said during a news conference Friday.
source.

The article about Will Kenefick, the builder of the Arcee bikes, mentions this:

Quote:
Being on a movie set carries not only the excitement of watching the film process, but the anxiety of watching carefully babied machines pushed to their limits and, for some, eventually meeting their demise, perhaps in a fiery explosion. It is, after all, a Michael Bay film.
source

So, they film the opening sequence in Bethlehem. Arcee(s) is/are spotted. We find out that they may have crashed a bike (on purpose or by accident, we don't really know), and then Arcee(s) is/are never seen again.

It seems like such a waste. Will Kenefick put a huge amount of work into those bikes, are they really only going to be used in one action scene? If the bikes do combine to form Arcee, why do something so complicated for a character that may bite the dust in the opening sequence? If they did that to solve her height "problem" - why bother, if she might die in the first few minutes of the film?

Any thoughts?

She could just not show up for the rest of the film or only in robot mode therefore the need for the bikes would be minimal. Then again there may be some shots that have taken place in secret locations where she was used.

Also they may only need the rider because one of the actual humans rides her afterward.

So this just proves that Arcee will not be a combiner!

Ehh, I was never a fan of Arcee, so I don't really care, lol.

I just wanna see Optimus use his sword/axe again.

Agreed. I can think of 10 autobots I'd rather see than her. Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Cliffjumper are just a few that come to mind. Oh well.

Why would they kill off a new character 20 minutes after intorducing her?
Why kill off the only female autobot?
I don't see it happening.

Another thing that's weird, if you look at the leaked call sheet, is that sometimes the motorbikes are referred to as "Arcee motorcycles" (plural) and other times just as "Arcee" (singular).

"Arcee motorcycles rip past Ice Cream twins"

vs.

"Arcee & Stinger chase R8" and "R8, Arcee, Stinger, Hummers, Trikes all race past Ice Cream Truck"

Just a theory, but perhaps the crew used "Arcee motorcycles" to refer to all three motorbikes (which in fact could be three different characters) and used "Arcee" to refer to the bike that is actually Arcee. Reading the call sheet again, it does sound like certain scenes only called for one bike...

This is all just another theory to add to my original post in this thread - but perhaps the three bikes are three different characters. Maybe Arcee is the only one who lives through the battle sequence. The Wal-Mart video does show Megan Fox in a biker suit with a helmet in her hands... but she was seen riding on the Aprilia RS50... perhaps that scene comes before the Shanghai sequence?

This is all very confusing...

The "Mustache Man"rules!

In the director's commentary Bay said that "Mustache Man" delayed his own wedding to be in this movie.

I honestly couldnt care less if Arcee was indeed killed in the first 20 minutes, she is a nothing character to me and I just cant see why they included her, she hardly has the following some of the Autobots left out have.

What a waste of an Autobot.

Well they should atleast have one female autobot in the group and just introduce her to kill her off would be stupid.

Also, this could be the scene where she scans it from her protoform

Couldnt care less about Arcee to be honest, there are so many Autobot's I would have preferred to see instead of her, Prowl and Ultra Magnus immediatly come to mind.

I absolutely HATE the three bikes combining thing. It's basically three little bots making her, or she will just be three sentient "pieces". I dunno, I just think it's overkill to make her match up better in size, or whatever the hell their reasoning is.

Agree on all accounts of having Arcee killed off in the first 20 minutes or so. What a waste of an autobot. Tho, I'd rather have her killed off then say, Prowl, Ultra Magnus, Sunstreaker..etc.

maybe they were still deciding on what color they wanted her to be?

Scorponok had a small role in the first one, whose to say Arcee won't have the same?
