Now I really am excited for this movie. I think it will probably be as great as the first 2.
I'm glad that if true, Shockwave will be the main villain. After Megatron & Soundwave, he was my next favourite villain. Not too interested in what is being said by those associated with T3 as i'd rather wait for the movie to be released and then make my mind up. Just saw a trailer, although it didn't reveal much it looked interesting enough.
I still get annoyed at what they did to Jetfire.
I'm happy to hear Shockwave is in the movie. But Shockwave as the main villian? It doesn't sound or feel right to me personally.
As far as the teaser trailer goes, a lot of people have said that the bot in the ship is Alpha Trion. Given the way he is introduced (score used and such), and the look of the robot is coming across as distinctly menacing to me. They wouldn't do Alpha Trion as menacing I would think.
I know it's been discussed before, but is it possible it's Unicron? Clearly, they wouldn't be able to do him in the scale as a giant planet as presented previously. Maybe he would be some kind of "Destroyer of Worlds" warlord. You know, without actually eating the planet per se.
awesome looking vehicle ever created, and had it turn into an old fart who couldn't fight.
Anyway, that would be awesome if that were Alpha Trion! And I think it looks great so far--I love when they take actual historic events and tie them into this world of fantasy, just like they did in the first one with the Mars Rover and Hoover Dam. Yeah, the more they follow the first one and get away from the second one, the better.

The Cradle Will Rock As I'm Drivin' Down Highway 40 In My Big Ol' Pick Up Truck.
I liked the trailer, I hope this time the story is about the transformers not about Sam Witwicky .
It's probably Alpha Trion, but that robot reminds me of Vector Prime.
As for the toys, I'm assuming that they'll have another Leader Class Prime and Megatron that'll be better than the last ones. Hopefully, we'll get a Leader Class Shockwave and Soundwave.
Someone clear something up for me.
In TF2 - when Megatron is revived and he flies off to meet up with the Fallen - where was the Fallen hiding out? I thought he was on the moon? Or was it Mars?
I won't be able to pull out the DVD till later tonight so I'm hoping someone here can shed some light...
The trailer didn't look bad because, imo, not much was shown. Once we see the designs and Bay's typical camera "tricks"(I loved his first 2 movies, liked his second 2, and was sick of his style with everything after that), I'm sure I'll find myself disliking this as much as the first 2. I'll be fair & see the movie before I judge it(I expected to hate Batman Begins & G.I. Joe Rise Of Cobra but loved them both), but I'm not expecting to like it.
I'm not as well versed on TF characters as a lot of you are(I grew up with G1 but it didn't stick with me as much as MOTU & G.I. Joe did). Whatever that robot is, it reminds me of...
Honestly, how scathing Bay is of ROTF really surprises me. Seems that his ego took a real battering.
EDIT: just found a new report over at IGN, although it’s no way near as in-depth as the Collider one: http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/113/1138953p1.html
I think the bot is Alpha Trion.

DISCLAIMER: The above post is not meant to offend, if you feel insulted by it then use the pm button to discuss it with me.
- The evil female pretender scene where she/it was trying to seduce Sam. I thought this was way over the top.
- The scene with Sam’s mom where she was high on the brownies. Not just for the drugs alone but also the sexually explicit stuff she starts talking about.
- Wheelie humping Mikaela’s leg like a horny dog. I actually forgot Wheelie was even in that movie as I guess I subconsciously tried to block that out.
- Optimus Prime killing a wounded prisoner of war. The true Optimus Prime (and any good hero) would never kill an enemy that has already been taken down and disarmed just for the sake of killing him.
- The twins. Need I say more.
Of course there are plenty of action flicks with the kind of violence and sensuality as listed above. But Transformers is based on a kids toyline.

I kind of got the impression there were any number of robots on that ship on the moon (but I do agree the featured one looked like it could have been Alpha Trion) - so could that imply this moon-ship is the Ark? (If the Nemesis ended up somewhere out in the solar system?)
I want to like this movie - I'm going to give it my best shot, but I really hated the second one. The first one, while cheesy, was pretty enjoyable, but the second one was just stupid, over the top, and tried (and failed) too hard to be funny. I really want TF3 to be better.
I like how all four major Decepticons (Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream and Shockwave) will be in it (And Soundwave will transform this time).
Also, Prime finally gets his trailer, and it looks like Wheeljack may be appearing, in addition to any number of new guys. (And they dumped Megan Fox, and the new love interest is Carly).
If the movie is just as good as TF1, at whatever level of 'good' you want to call that, I'll have to be satisfied with that.
"That's very interesting...but silly."
- Devastator's testicles
- Jetfire being an old fart
- "Punk ass Decepticon!"
You can get away with murder using robots. Ask Tarantulas when he was running down the hall, when Primal set him on fire in Beast Wars.Of course there are plenty of action flicks with the kind of violence and sensuality as listed above. But Transformers is based on a kids toyline.
Ah, Hasbro has stones and realize that kids are more hardcore than those Reagan-era kids! They probably figure that kids routinely curse at school or among their friends, watch R-rated moves and hide Playboys under their beds. ROFLMAO!
(I'm kidding, but looking at the Zarana nude scene and the death and cursing from TFTM, maybe this is how "hip" Hasbro execs are...)
Some of the humor was too much to as mentioned above by others.
I actually do enjoy Bays humor in other movies like Bad Boys II but it just does not fit Transformers.

Fear is faith in failure
My main criticism with ROTF stems from the unintentionally confusing story. There is no doubt whatsoever the writer’s strike had a very big effect on the film as a whole. It’s a shame, because there’s so much in it that I love (the forest fight, Starscream and Megatron’s relationship, more scenes reserved just for the robots and Prime saving the day), but there’s more that I don’t like (pot brownie, although I skip that scene on the blu ray, Leo and the Twin's voices).
By reading the numerous interviews that have been released this past week conducted with Bay, I think he's somewhat on the same page as all who liked the first film but felt let down with the second one. I'm optimistic that DOTM will be a much better film than ROTF and may even surpass the first one.
