Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Bumblebee & Soundwave out in UK

Written by Big Bot on May 16, 2009 | News,Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen | Tags: , ,

The UK has finally received the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen preview figures. Bumblebee and Soundwave.

The two deluxe figures have been sighted by multiple forum members in The Entertainer and Toymaster stores. Each figure costs the ridiculus price of £12.99, but given each characters popularity, expect them to shoot off the shelves very quickly.

Check back for galleries and reviews of the figures soon.

Germany to get Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Early

Variety are reporting that Paramount Germany will be releasing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Germany on 25th June, a day before the North American launch.

Other international release dates should become apparent over the next few months. Expect the UK and Nordic countries to have to wait a month after the premiere.

Soundwave Alt Modes Revealed in Revenge of the Fallen?

TFW2005 are reporting that their inside man (or woman), the “TFW TF2 Insider”, has confirmed the alt modes for Decepticon Soundwave in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Yes, I said Alt modes, meaning you (may) be seeing both his Earth and Cybertronian modes. His Cybertron mode will apparently be a satellite, and his Earth mode will be a pickup truck.

None of this has been confirmed, so take it as rumour until some official confirmation is out.

Film ads to run during Oscars – Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen considerd

Variety are reporting that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ board of governors has lifted their ban on movie advertising during the Academy Awards telecast. The ban was originally put in place to prevent fears of vote rigging.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has been mentioned as being placed into one of these slots, but this spot isn’t guaranteed, especially since distributers are only allowed one film to advertise, which means Paramount would have to decide between ROTF, Gi Joe or Star Trek.

Transformers 2: Chevy Beat Character Revealed, Plus More Images

Jalopnik has posted new images at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. On set were the Chevrolet Camaro (Bumblebee), the Chevrolet Trax and the Chevrolet Beat.

The license plate of the Chevrolet Beat seems to reveal the name of the character that will transform into that car. The name is Skids, the Autobot who appeared only briefly in the G1 cartoon. This isn’t confirmed, but would seems a suitable choice for the vehicle.

Full Imax Bits For Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

Variety are reporting that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay will follow The Dark Knight’s lead and shoot 3 action sequences in the sequel in the Imax format. This will lead to a larger and more detailed picture on screen, and hopefully making the film more awesome!

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will debut in both regular theaters and in Imax.

New Revenge Of The Fallen Characters & Alt Mode Confirmations

TFW2005 have received a report from The Hasbro Licensing Summit 2008 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and with it comes lots of Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen SPOILERS.

First up, the Chevy Corvette that has been seen everywhere has been confirmed to be Sideswipe, the red G1 Autobot that originally transformed into a Lamborghini.

The second confirmation is that the Decepticon tape Ravage will be in the sequel, but not as a tape for Soundwave. Ravage is mentioned as having a “very raw beast mode”.

Leader class figures Optimus Prime and Megatron were shown, with Megatron’s figure confirming that his alternative mode is indeed a tank. The Optimus Prime figure will have a new mould from the first film and a new transformation.

ROTF: More Character Confirmation & Transforming Info

At the Hasbro Italy 2009 Brand Preview, some more details on who will be appearing in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen have been confirmed. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Jetfire and Devastator are both confirmed for the sequel, with Jetfire definately being an Autobot. Jetfire has also been seen, in toy form, combining with Optimus Prime, like he did in Transformers Armada, to form some super robot. If this happens in the film is yet to be seen.

No Triple Changers for Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen

In a Q&A at TFW2005, Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen writer Roberto Orci has provided some more answers, this time confirming that there will be no triple changers (ala Blitzwing) but there will be combiners:

Talked about it. Does a combiner count? We figure a triple changer is a good idea for part 3.

Also answered was the likelihood that Megatron and Starscream will be up to their old ways again, withbickering left right and center and that it has been discussed (no confirmation) in the writters room about the possiblity of Optimus Prime combining with another robot or even his trailer.

And for anyone wondering what Soundwave will trasnform into, nonbody has guessed it yet.

More Revenge Of The Fallen Megatron Images

S250 has continued with his image leaking, this time for next years other major event, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. He has posted 4 images of a returning character from the first film, Megatron. As you can see in the pictures, he’ll have a new alternative mode, and overall new design, but inkeeping with the Cybertronian style.

Of course, this could be a fake leak, but given S250’s previous reputation, these are more likely real.
