The official Teaser has been released!


http://www.transformersmovie.com/


Along with this photo there was much debate to whether this is really from the set.

I dont notice any flaws.
But this guy Drew here at MF says it looks fake because, theres no depth of field, the Two water bottles are exactly at the same angle. This was coming from a guy who thought that Randy Jackson from American Idol is a former member of the Jackson Fives.. boy was he wrong.

yeah that pic is fake you can tell by the shadow on the left, it's off by about 1.0256 degrees.... lmao c'mon be serious... unless someone has that in their backyard i'll take that for what it is. looks cool, can't wait to see it!

Haha my point exactly Jer!

Any whoo, I got the privilege of asking the Master.....

Jeff.

After about a few minutes looking into it, to summarize his analysis, generally didnt see any problems, that it looked pretty legit, although if you wanted to take tear it apart and totally disproove its reality and be super skeptical about this crap, he said he would prolly consider the angle of that metallic pole behind the transformer, that its at such an angle he would possibly consider it might need some sort of yellow reflection. He says it might be coincidental that the water bottles are at the same angle turn. Also mentioned that if it were fake the light shine hitting the surface of the plastic would repeat as though as it was coming from the same angle, but this one looks pretty natural.
But over all according to him he thinks its pretty legit.

Thought some of you guys would be interested in this...


Tomorrow morning at 11:00am PST Yahoo! Movies will be hosting a live webcast with Transformers writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, where they will be announcing the names of all the robots that will appear in the film.

After the announcement, Roberto and Alex will be answering questions from fans via the live webcast. Fans can visit the film's official website to start posting questions today (or send them directly to questions@transformersmovie.com).

Here are some notes on the characters from another forum. Taken from the webcast:


Info from the Yahoo Live Webcast

Autobots

Optimus Prime - leader of the group - same as before
Bumblebee - same underdog like G1 (the scout)
Jazz - Rock and Roll, Loyal, do it in style - eager, contemporary, blends in more to cultures
Rachet - Medical officer - science officer, smartest one
Ironhide - Muscle, tough soldier - first one to clear the field, Optimus's "other side"

Decepticons

Megatron - Natural, survival of the fittest, less idealistic, god given right to treat everyone like animals
Starscream - Do anything for you - secretly plotting, doesn't know if they could survive without megs
Brawl - Angry decepticon, eager to get into a fight even if it's not worth it. First one going into a new direction
Bonecrusher - A constructicon type, he hates stuff as much as megatron
Barricade - Scout of the group, Police Car. Camaflogue hunter
Scorpinok - Character that can be as close to a beast wars character
Blackout - Helecopter - hits electronics first - tier 1 attacker
Frenzy - The boombox that infiltrates

Frenzy is a cassette tape, not the boombox... that's Soundwave!

This movie is ticking me off. :mad:





... but I'll probably see it anyways. ;)

They said that the vehicles would be too hard to turn into robots,

That's not true look at these commercials and fan amde things that use objects to robots.

wtf, did a twelve year old design that? Honestly it looks like one of the concepts that Lucas trashed for a better design of General Grevious.

It makes me wanna say,

Gee And its transforms from a "wtf is that" to a " WTF is that!"
Over all I think the design of it is just too much, Its like if I were to put that right next to a bunch of keys, a crumppled up Pepsi One can, and my braces all -that tangled up in a slinky, You just couldnt tell the difference between the two.
oh well maybe it will turn out better in 3D.

industrial_baby
August 24th, 2006, 22:03
i dont know much about 3d at all... and i dont pretend to... but i have to agree with Will on this one. It looks way to complicated... far too many sharp edges. Isnt the original look of Megatron very boxy and streamline?? Why would they alter his image so much? It seems like with a already very well known series, such as transformers, that has such a strong cult following they wouldnt completely alter the way a character looks.... just seems very risky.

that said... ill probably still go see the movie no matter what.

Prime's gun was always big. I think the only "normal" sized transformer that had a bigger gun was Megatron, cuz he was a gun himself.

ProfClayton

... and these are supposed to be models of the toys that will tie into the movie.

How in the ^%$# are you supposed to transform these things?

If they have a transformers movie will no toys that transform, that would suck!

yeah, I can't imagine that thing being a transformable toy.

My opinion is that the toy thing is just a rumor. I think that pic is just another Optimus rendering, because it looks similar to the "style sheets" of Megatron and some of the other Decepticons.

Yeah, movie was pretty amazing. I had to sit in the VERY front of the theater though and with the crazy swishpans, intense action, etc., it was hard to tell what was going on sometimes. Overall though the effects were nothing short of amazing, and the compositing was great as well. Wonder when #2 comes out..... :-P

Finally saw it last night.... and it was okay.

The animation and the models were amazing. The compositing was flawless.

I just got confused with the battles and what was going on. Maybe a little too much.

The best part for me were the five Autobots trying to hide in Sam's backyard and Ironside's suggestion of "taking out the parents." Priceless.

The subtle thing that made me laugh was at the end when they showed the clip of Starscream turning tail and zipping off into space. He always was a pansy.

I give this movie a B/B-... I would have given it a lower grade if they hadn't got Peter Cullen to come back and voice OP... and I wish that Leonard Nimoy would've reprised his role of Megatron rather than getting "Mr Smith" to do it.

I agree with ya about the fight scenes Prof. Clayton, had trouble figuring out where a fist was and where a head was. One thing I was kinda angry about was when the girl said "If he can transform why does he transform into that piece of crud car." For $400 thats a nice car, heck I if he didn't want it i'd take it.
