So, with all the things floating around the internet recently, along with some deductive reasoning from Toy Fair this weekend, we here at TFW2005 are going out on a limb and saying that Megatron will have a role in Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, and most likely have more than a cameo or end-of-movie type appearance. Rather, a full on real deal role.
Many hardcore fans already know, or have deducted this by now from various sources, for various reasons. We know, we aren’t trying to say we saw footage and got a signed letter from Michael Bay or anything, or that we are smarter than you. Trying to round things up for the casual fans too, ya know 🙂 So, check out these things from today:
Megatron was seen as an 8 foot tall high-resolution promotional image at Toy Fair today. His full body CGI render was movie quality, not the adjusted lower level version seen on the Activision site in earlier weeks. This CGI render was not an adjusted version of his old form, but rather his all new form – a Tank. There are multiple toys in multiple size classes of him turning into a tank (leaked from China for like 2 years now), with matching hand drawn concept sketches.
Also seen today was an outline of a “New Character” in keychain form, which when looked at closely is an exact match of the outline to the CGI of Megatron seen in large poster form. That CGI features his tank tread feet, altered shoulder, and adjusted “pointy-er” head.
So, why would the folks at the various companies, third party licenses, and studios spend time rendering movie quality high res images, and use them to promote a toy line to fans, kids, and potential retail buyers of their product for the coming year, if it was a secondary or minor-screen time character?
Because they aren’t trying to give away already leaked major characters and need something recognizable to push? Secret characters like the ones that will be seen in various promo footage being shown to retailers and industry people this week? Or rather, because he is a major player, will be in the movie via a significant role, and they are just trying to keep a lid on things. And maybe spin us super smart(ass) fans around for a while? You be the judge. Some pretty images are attached to see some of the things I am talking about.
Enjoy, bitch, moan, yell at us, etc by hitting discuss.
