Full List of Robots Revealed for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
And that's not all! In addition to a complete list of robots from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Paramount has debuted a batch of new photos, which we've included below. The complete list comes primarily from Yahoo, with additional information and quotes from USA Today. The big reveal this time is Ravage (see photo below), the cat-like robot that is stored inside of Soundwave. "In the spirit of 'more than meets the eye,' Ravage isn't just lethal because of his sharp teeth," says writer Alex Kurtzman. "There's actually another skill set Ravage has that didn't exist before, so there's going to be a surprise for fans."
"We wanted to stay true to the idea that Decepticons who take visual clues from beasts maintain that," says Roberto Orci. "It would be strange to have a talking jaguar, or a scorpion with an English accent." Makes a lot of sense, and I'm glad that they decided to update a few of these robots from the old school 1980's designs of the toys and the cartoon. Take a look at the full list of robots below (for you crazy Transformers fans), and some more photos courtesy of Megan-Fox.net, and get ready for the summer!
If you want to learn more about some of the updates to the robots, head over to USA Today. One of them that I know we're very excited to see is Devastator, the enormous Decepticon that is formed by a combination of five separate smaller robots. "He's made of vehicles designed to build, and he turns into is someone who loves to destroy," Orci says. "He is an agent of absolute chaos." To give you an idea of just how big he'll be, that giant robot at the end of the trailer was just one of those five. "Spielberg saw it and said, 'This is (expletive) awesome!' " Bay says, and adds: "It's always nice when you can make him swear."
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is again directed by action film superstar Michael Bay of Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Island, and Transformers previously. The story and screenplay for the sequel was written by Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci as well as Ehren Kruger (The Ring, The Brothers Grimm, Blood and Chocolate). Paramount is unleashing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in both IMAX and regular theaters on June 24th this summer. We'll be there!
