Holy Shia! New Transformers 2 Details, More Robots!

I don’t know about you, but I’m practically peeing myself in anticipation for Transformers 2.I was one of those people who was seriously skeptic about a movie adaptation, but had my proverbial socks rocked off. With a promised 20 robots including: The Twins, a pair of robot brothers who combine to form an inconspicuous ice cream truck, and a chick Autobot named Arcee who transforms into a ninja-esque motorcycle… Michael Bay is gonna blow us away.

We even have a spy photo from the set of the actress who rides Arcee the motorcycle, which can be seen below with some unofficial concept art. There are two names listed as drivers on a recently uncovered Bethlehem call sheet, Jessie Graff and Melissa Hartman.

Fans of the original will be happy to see returning characters Bumblebee, Sam (Shia LaBeouf), Mikaela (Megan Fox), and Sector 7 Agent Simmons (John Tuturro) amongst others.Aside from the collection of new bots, there is a new human character introduced, Leo (Ramon Rodriguez), Sam’s college roommate.

So what about new locations, you ask?Bay promises to deliver some epic scenery.Filming locations include Bethlehem Steel Factory (in Bethlehem, PA, but in the film Shanghai) and the Smithsonian Museum.The opening sequence goes down in the steel factory, which really needs no further explanation.Steel mill + robots = awesome.While in the museum after hours, Agent Simmons uses a radiation tracker to find a SR-71 Blackbird, really an Autobot (or Decepticon, we are not yet certain) named Jetfire.

And pretty much the most exciting news for fankids is the probable introduction of new Transformers: Constructicons and Devastator.A Constructicon Earth Mover is somehow involved in the movie.With all these new bots, Bay is sure to have ample material on his hands for more sequels.Bay himself is helping to perpetuate buzz and rumors surrounding the film, keeping the real storyline top secret.Considering Transformers kicked serious ass, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen is sure to deliver serious thrills.“More than meets the eye?”You bet your engine.
