Transformers II To Have 20 Robot Cast?

In various reports online Roberto Orci, member of the Transformers II writer triumvirate, wrote on the Don Murphy boards that the TF cast will be 20 robots in total, about 10 on each side.

Who those ten will be remains a mystery. It is probably not a stretch to assume at least 7 of them (Optimus Prime, Ratchet, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Barricade, Starscream, and Soundwave). Jazz remains a question mark to me.

Orci's post is here, now that Don Murphy's site is back up.

"I'd love and think we could almost barely manage ten on each side, with some front and center and others as more supporting."

Interesting choice of phrasing in that quote. Rather then saying there is 10 on each side (for 20 total), its phrased more as a preference or desire. Basically that means the number of total TFs in the movie remains unknown with 20 just being a ballpark number.

Update: From a post today, Orci pretty much confirmed that the 20 Transformers cast was more of a wish then an exact number, "it's kinda maybe not entirely accurate whatsoever."


  1. 20 robots??? Holy...

    *Crosses fingers that this is true*

  2. O.O Oh my sweet mother of jesus...20 robots??? Dat's like insane and just think about how much destruction and chaos they could make...o_o we all like it when things go boom!

  3. don't get so excited remember the first one all the decepticons had no more than 5min scenes so 10 on 10 the first 5 will die in less than a minute expect prime and ironhide vs starscream and soundwave the rest will remain as fill ins for make all of you watch

  4. before you guys posting quotes from the makes of tf2, look at the date from which the quotes come from and the context. omg. its from february before the script was finalised. WAY BEFORE!!! that quote was in response to a hypothetical question. i don't understand why the whole internet is going buck wild over a quote made almost 4 months ago. people can be so stupid and get excited over nothing. just my two cents.
