TF2 Official Photos Coming Monday?

Nelson, the site admin for Michael Bay's Shoot For The Edit site reports "Just a little heads up: Empire and USAToday might have the first official TF2 photos on 12/29/08. So keep your eyes open."

Earlier this month, Michael Bay had indicated that he was "going to release some set stills on this site in a few weeks" so Nelson's info may be accurate. Sure the info isn't coming first on Bay's site but I imagine Paramount's PR and Marketing departments would have had a heart attack if full advantage wasn't taken of the first official reveals of moments from the anticipating sequel. Paramount used Empire and USA Today I am not saying this is a build-up to a trailer, its just that the Star Trek campaign showed them that those two sources are a good way to hit a wide audience in the US and Europe and spread the information on the web.

Note that while Nelson has been a good source of information, he is not "official" so his information could be off or he out of the loop on any changes to the marketing plan. As always time will tell but on the bright side at least this time the wait is short. Pictures will pop up on Monday or they will not. Thanks to Gregory for the heads-up.


  1. oooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeee


  2. doubt the pictures will show us anything...

    Wow what we've seen already but from a different angle whoppie fucking doo.

    Long poles with cardboard faces on em..


  3. ^^^^^^^^
    LOL, watch now, you pulled a BIG reverse physcology and instead we get Jetfire OR a Massive Decepticon attacking Earth!!! Buwhahaha.

    Hey, it could happen. They knew 'online fans' were denied a Teaser already.

  4. Hopefully they will be still frames from some of the final edits/composites, Like they did with the prime and bonecrusher scene from the first movie.

    Cmon Bay.....PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!! give us something to drool over.


  5. Hey its in the new issue of empire. Im not sure whether it will be different from what's unveiled on monday. Im not at home so i dont have my scanner but ill share what the issue contains. The only robot shot is one similar to the last cover empire had with prime, although this time he's damaged and looks like he has been in battle. The other shots is a set shot of a pyramid and a shot taken from the movie of Sam and Michaela running and another shot of the character played by Ramon Rodriguez ducking from cars flying through the air. Also in the article, the producers comment on devastator and how he appears in the final sequence in Egypt with the traditionally you wont believe it till you see it talk up. They are keeping under wraps who the Fallen is and Bay says there is no Megatron, although thats probably mis-information, he says the leaked tank design is just hasbro trying to sell more toys. Oh also there's a quote with them saying there's 40 odd robots in the movie. Hope that info tides peeps over till someone scans it or its unveiled on the monday. Not much and who knows what to believe with this production. :)

  6. who are the robots?

  7. "Also in the article, the producers comment on devastator and how he appears in the final sequence in Egypt with the traditionally you wont believe it till you see it talk up."

    this can be true, the Constructicons are in Egypt. They search for something... make some holes... i cant wait for this... later, the Autobots coming... and we have the big surprise for the Autobots... the big devastator :D

  8. dumb dumb dumb...

    Worthless pictures that won't tell us anything about the movie.

    Things we've seen already cept closer up..

    oooh a school! ooh a chinese port omg wow

    what a waste of time... we want bot pictures not a long pole with a liil picture on it...

    bay's a total fag

  9. yea i know we all say this now , but i think it will be worth the wait, i'd rather see nothing for the longest time then get a taste knowing its still 6 months away from coming in through our eyeballs, just me tho

  10. They are up now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  12. i see no robots ! just ... a kicked Prime ... No new robots - no party !


  14. USA Today story gives a little background about the film

  15. there's a picture up right now at

  16. "Anonymous said...

    USA Today story gives a little background about the film"

    So Jetfire is the "geriatric" bot. Old fart.....wonder if he'll use a walker and sound like that old gay guy on Family guy. "Hey Sam, I have a piece of "shard" for you in my pocket. Why don't you reach in there and get it", lol.

  17. Yep see...

    Didn't tell us shit about the movie.. wow i'm fucking amazed

    Great job bay


  18. Quoted from the USA Today article:
    "Some of the most important newcomers are in the robot cast: Decepticons Soundwave, a fearsome communications expert, and Devastator, whose arms and legs are built out of other Transformers. And on the Autobots' side is Jetfire, a villain whose age and broken-down physicality leads him to help the Autobots."

    -- Hmm, Devastator's arms and legs made out of other Transformers?. Seems like it will be one main sentient robot with drones as arms and legs .. and not seven sentient robots combining as previously speculated.

    As for Jetfire, i wonder if the toy's gerwalk-ish appearance is a reflection of the character's age?
    If it is, then the voyager or leader class toy might not be so different in terms of posture and appearance.

    Anyhow, i'm still looking forward to CGI renders of the individual bots themselves.

  19. oohh... scheduled release date of june cool..that's my wedding anniversary. i'll demand seeing Transformers 2...or hubby won't be getting lucky....

  20. "oohh... scheduled release date of june cool..that's my wedding anniversary. i'll demand seeing Transformers 2...or hubby won't be getting lucky...."
