Official Transformers 2 Poster (Update)

Thanks to the leak, Michael Bay and Paramount have confirmed that the leaked poster is real by releasing the poster via Yahoo! Movies with Bay commenting on it.
Okay it's time to turn up the heat on Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen. We've waited low in the weeds letting all the summer movies get their stuff out. We've seen the great year end movies, and watched the upcoming clips of the upcoming summer fare. We've seen certain movies coming out even try to duplicate Transformer size robots in their ads. Please, come on.

Well, I promise you we will rock your world with Transformers 2. The fans wanted ROBOTS KICKING ASS - well we got it. Today we are releasing the teaser poster and soon the onslaught will continue with a steady drum beat until June 26th.

I'll keep you informed.

Bay
Currently the theory on forums and here is that the image on the poster is actually Jetfire. All we have to go on facially for Jetfire is his Legends toy which doesn't have much in details but there are enough to make comparisons. Both have read eyes, both have a "ribbed" look on the sides of the face, and the nose shape seems similar. By no means is it decisive but it does seem likely. Does that make Jetfire the Fallen? Possibly since "fallen" could mean so many things but for no I am sticking with no.


Updates: TFormers.com has a high resolution image of the poster which you can find here. Also, if want to see the entire face, an enhanced version is here.

  1. Bay say Megatron isn't coming back, BUT he never said he wasn't coming back as Galvatron. Afterall, it would be a real bummer if those pix of Megatron Tank and Ravage weren't legitimate. O check out this M and M package of the twins guys!

  5. Interesting theory yeah, the "Fallen" could mean a general term to describe those who have been defeated and entombed many eons ago and have now been resurrected. Could be Jetfire and many others underneath the Pyramids or elsewhere?

    That poster is KICKASS! I love the whole mystique and suspense about this advertising campaign! Very exciting!

  6. That is indeed Jetfire. And I can see similarities in design to an Egyptian head, hence some plot point while they were filming in Egypt. VERY AWESOME TEASER POSTER.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I dont really think itz jetfire, the bars along the side of the posters face reach 4rm top to bottom, similar to the egyptian pharoh's crown, and jetfirez shoots up at an angle from the side of his head, sort of like portruding spikes. I believe Jetfire is found at the Smithsonian museum, not egypt btw. Still itz fun speculating!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Guys...the face is Fallen. Why would any other single face be featured on the film's poster? The movie isn't called Revenge of Jetfire.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The Bot here is Bonecrusher, ready for round two w/ Optimus.
    Transformers: Rivenge of Bonecrusher!!

  10. Someone mentioned this before but... is it just me or does the head image *kinda sorta* resemble a stylized version of the Decepticon logo?

    Like imagine if that character could be the FIRST Decepticon. The grandaddy of them all. He'd indeed be the "Fallen" and yet not? A new story?

    So many questions!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sorry, I meant he'd be referred to as "The Fallen" like for example "Our Fallen One Lost Among the Stars, the first Decepticon!" but his actual name would be unknown at this time because obviously we're grasping at air. haha

    ReplyDelete
  12. actually when you look at it, the face has a kind of beak of some sort and the objects on both sides look like tank treads. I know bay said megatron wont be back, but he never said galvitron wont be back. THe fact taht the fab toy tank of meg could be a marketing issue like they did with brawl/devastator. The toy is meg, but int he move he's galvitron cause the head int he poster looks like its seddled between two tank treads.

  13. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!

    Jesus, why don't you guys just take a look at the image that Megatron is kneeling before on the comic book page, then hold it next to this image.
    IT'S THE SAME DAM THING.

    It's not JETFIRE. (so stupid)

    The movie is called revenge of THE FALLEN. It's going to have THE FALLEN in it. The picture is THE FALLEN.
    Is the plot still lame if you know it's going to have THE FALLEN in it? Most viewers won't even know who THE FALLEN is. Thus the comic introduction.

    Dam, why do you guys make it so hard on yourselves?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I don't read nor desire to collect comics. ^_^

    But thank you for explaining this Fallen to me! Now I don't need to watch this movie!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think it Not jetfire, either
    It's more looks like Soundwave to me. (try that image with more brightness)

    ReplyDelete
  16. No need to bash other people for voicing their opinions. Personally, I think that Jetfire and the Fallen are two different characters and that we're looking at Jetfire here. He doesn't have the quadruple eyes that we've seen on boxart and the comic cover, but it's practically identical to the Voyager Jetfire toy.

    But none of us knows anyway, so maybe everyone should quit insulting those who know EXACTLY AS MUCH AS EVERYONE ELSE.

  17. I say that the "FALLEN" is a seperate character and is the one from the IDW Comic Books.

    But rather or not he will be like the devil robot as seen in the comics were he is totally surrounded bye flames remains to be see.

    Jetfire is a seperate Bot bye himself. He is the SR-71 Blackbird in the Smithsonian.

    The fallen was on Earth even longer than Megatron Crashed Landed.

    My theory: The fallen is one of the original 13 transformers. He was once a peaceful robot but later turned on his creator Primus. And joined forces with Unicron. Unicron sent The Fallen to seek out new worlds that are worthy to be consumed. And the Fallen stumbled upon EARTH. Unable to report back to his master Unicron he can not report his discovery. Also the long jounrey has damaged his systems and he ran out of Energon.

    Millions of years later the Ancient Egyptians that we know of They find a wierd pointy thing sticking in the Sand. Unkown what the being really is the they began to worship it as a false god.

    Then they began to construct a temple around the false god.

    Now we return to present time our time. The Ancient Egyptians temlpes are all there but are withered and worened down. This is where our story begins.

    On how the Fallen is awoken is anyone's guess. I say it is one of the Decipticons on rather or n ot it is Starscream or Soundwave remains a mystery. Also remains a mystery on how they reactivate the Fallen. It could be that they already no how or they just done it bye accident maybe during a battle with the Autobots.


    Also I think maybe Megatron will be in the movie but not toward the end of the Movie. It maybe something like at the end of the credits were we will see him. I thik it would be totally bad ass if he said that one line from the 1st one "I AM MEGATRON!!!. Confirming the ressurection of Megatron.

    Then in Transformers 3 he would then become Galvatron.

    Also be cool at the end of the movie we see a huge planet like monster headed towards Earth which would be Unicron.

    But he would be somewhat diffrent from the 1986 movie we all no and love.

    Other than that I am stoked about Transformers 2, I just wish Bay & Company would release more info on the Bots & Cons and more details on the stories plot.

  18. With more brightness, It matches exactly with Soundwave in cover of "Defiance (Transformers 2 Prequel Comic)"

    ReplyDelete
  19. What kind of bull shit is this? The Fallen = Jetfire? The Fallen's face doesn't look like Jetfire could be him. But one rumor was right: The Fallen's face inspired to Megatron symbol of the Decepticons.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Uhh ya, I'm going to have to take back what I said at 12:47. I checked the Defiance cover and it's the Fallen, no doubt. Suspiciously similar to Jetfire, though. One and the same? We'll have to wait and see.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That is not Jetfire

    That is not Soundwave

    That is "THE FALLEN"

    Also I found out when the official Teaser trailer will be released. Feb 1st, 2009.


    Also other trailers to be shown are, The Fast & The Furious 4, Star Trek, & GI Joe.

    ReplyDelete
  22. IMHO Its Soundwave.

    The head looks like the Decepticon logo; Soundwave famously resembles the Decepticon logo.

    If that's The Fallen then that means Soundwave won't look anything like his G1 incarnation, not even his head.

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is not Jetfire or Soundwave, the head on the poster is "The Fallen". It is shaped like the decepticon symbol, so I'm sure the story will be how "The Fallen" was the original Decepticon

    ReplyDelete
  24. FALLEN = JETFIRE

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't think it's the Fallen. Most likely we will get 2 or 3 posters that look alike. One of Jetfires face, one of Primes damaged face and one of the Fallen or Starscream. Since both Bay and other people on the production team has confirmed that the "double eyes" we have seen on packages and in drawings, is in fact the Fallen, I don't think this is the actuall Fallen character. It looks more like Jetfires face.

    And I almost wet my pants when I finally realized this is the first real cgi-picture of a robot from the movie (except for Prime).

    ReplyDelete
  26. If the theory of Jetfire becomes an Autobot during the movie is correct then will he remodel himself during the movie?? Even if the poster is the Fallen (seperate character) the face depicted by the Jetfire legend-class toy suggests Decepticon through and through. I doubt he'd become an Autobot looking like that... he'd need to be more human-friendly, i.e. less spiky/prickly (like Blackout).

    Another thing... a lot of the pre-released set shots show filming in Egypt and Jordan, etc... this for me doesn't work. Consider the alt modes of the Autobots... none of them would be able to travel on such terrain whereas the Decepticon's armoured military-type alt modes would be ideal. I know they're dead now but Bonecrusher and Brawl would have had no trouble in traversing over sand, Starscream and Blackout obviously can fly, and if Soundwave really is a 'satellite' something tells me he can fly too. This suggests that no Auotbots will appear in Egypt in the movie (how would they have got over to Egypt/Jordan too?? Skylink making an unexpected stop-off?!)

    We'll get a better idea soon enough

    Does nebody else thinks that the red eyes light shining on the area right below them make it looks as if it had 4 eyes and not just 2. You cant tell in the more detailed pick then this might be the sam tf thats face was on the new comic cover with megatron bowing on it and the toys with a similar 4 eyed tf?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Uhh, Idk if you caught this,
    but is he hinting that Onslaught will be in the movie,

    ReplyDelete
  36. Here's how I think it's gonna go down.

    Millions of years ago, Starscream and Jetfire were friends (as par usual), but on an exploratory mission to earth, Starscream betrayed Jetfire, locking him inside a Pyramid. Jetfire rose from the rubble, and now he wants revenge... on Starscream.

    What'choo theenken?

    ReplyDelete
  37. AweSome...keep on waiting TF2...

    ReplyDelete
  38. maybe it is the first decipticon becaus eits defenitlly not unicron or galvitrion

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's The Fallen people.....deal with it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Anonymous who keeps posting that the image on the poster HAS to be The Fallen. It most absolutely DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THE FALLEN. I worked at a movie theater for a few years, and it is not uncommon for different posters to be released for the same movie. This poster could be Soundwave to finally satiate us fans who want to see him so badly, simply to get that out of the way.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Remember the jetfire toy has the decepticon log scratched off, so he could clearly be a "fallen" bot

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think the bot on the poster is The Fallen http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/27/Fallen2.jpg
