Transformer's roster revealed
We've been gone for a few weeks soaking up the sun and being sad that school is starting up, but now I am back from class and looking for anything to avoid work.
A few days ago Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, the writers of Transformers the Movie announced the rooster for both the Autobots and Decepticons.
AUTOBOTS: Optimus Prime. Bumblebee ("The same G1 character we always knew and loved...He's the scout, the one that comes ahead of the Autobots"). Jazz. Ratchet (medical officer/science officer - new form, not an ambulance). Ironhide ("He's the muscle - a tough soldier...The first one to jump into battle" ).
DECEPTICONS: Megatron (has a Social Darwinist view of humanity - survival of the fittest). Starscream. Brawl ("an extremely pissed off Decepticon. Always ready to jump into a fight, even when the fight isn't worth it.") Bonecrusher. Barricade. Scorponok. Frenzy (an infiltrator). Blackout (sends an EMP-style blast to take out electronics, detection devices, etc. in advance of Decepticon attack).
via ain't it cool
All in all, I think it's shaping up to be an interesting movie. Bumblebee and Starscream have always been favorites.
