Transformers 2 Poster Redux (Updated)

Same poster from the other day, bigger size via TFormers. Still no word if this is an international poster or not. Thanks to minime for the link.


Update: Looking at the various threads and the comments, it seems most fans think the poster is fake as it uses elements of previousily released production pictures and an old render of Optimus Prime. Pretty good arguments, it could be fake, I don't know. So just a reminder, unless it comes from the mouths of someone from production such as Bay, the cast, etc, or from Hasbro (say through toy pics), all information remains purely in the "rumor" column. It doesn't matter how sure we are, at the end of the day it is not like we can call up Bay and go "hey is this true?" so it all comes down to best guesses and possibilities based on the information we have at that moment in time. On June 24th (btw, that move has not been verified officially) we will get to see just how close we were at figuring it all out (and hopefully get blown away by CGI TF goodness to boot). To me the stars on all posters should read "Optimus Prime" and other TF cast not Shia LaBeouf and co.

  1. SR-71 (Jetfire), F-35 JSF (Breakaway) and other planes in the pic.. If it's legit.. I'm thinkin Superion is even more likely.

  2. Same here. Doesn't make much sense with the Aerialbots being repaints, but it's hard to argue with the poster.

  3. If you guys look at the cast names closely, you can see its the exact listing from the first film with Anthony Anderson, Rachel Taylor, and Jon Voight listed. I'm not saying the pic layout is fake, but we know that info is wrong.

  4. The Prime in the sky thing is really starting to make me sad. :(

    Maybe this is part of "the misinformation campaign.

  6. This is super fake..
    The Sam & Mikaela running pic is the same as in the first official photo's, just cut out from the rest of picture..
    And the fake fallen on the piramids reminds me of the Tron movie poster with the light going up..
    For sure this ones a fake..!

  7. I guess that settles it, no Aerialbots after all. Kudos to Bay & co. for keeping us guessing, though.

  8. Still not a high-rez image but Definitely fake...the hair feathering is horrible. Someone obviously used the magnet selection tool in Photoshop (lazy bum). And the spacing kerning of the title "Revenge of the Fallen" is a big Graphic Designer "no-no". Then Anonymous commented that the credits were used from last years film? That settles it :D

  9. ummmm don't really think that this is a fake....it looks legit....by the way did everybody notice how on the left we can see Jetfire and starscream followed by 6 jets.......remenber there wer 6 protoforms landing on the ship carrier maybe those six had time to chose a alt form before reaking havoc.....

    juz my 2 cents

  10. even if it is a fake gotta give credit to whoever made it. Its pretty decent, although it reminds me of the old original star wars trilogy posters.

  11. Who are the transformers on the far left pyramids? they look either the constructicons or the twins?

  12. This is a ridiculously AWFUL, completely FAKE poster. As a fellow graphic designer, I can tell a hack job when I see one. Let's point out the mistakes, shall we?

    1. As already stated, the cast list is incorrect. Anthony Anderson? Rachel Taylor? Jon Voight? They're not even in the movie

    2. The image of Optimus in the back looks like a direct copy of the EMPIRE magazine press release photo, and he's hidden behind some clouds. Why is he hiding behind clouds?

    3. As already stated too, the image of Shia and Megan is directly cropped out of the first press release photo of the film, and it's not even in focus. Do you really think they would choose a picture of Shia with his hand all bandaged up for the poster?? I don't

    4. Why is there a huge beam of light coming from The Fallen? And why is he colossally large? We've already seen how big he is in the newest trailer, and he certainly doesn't tower over a pyramid

    5. Why are there larger than life sparks flying off the horizon from the right corner? Huge rip-off of a Mission: Impossible III poster? Sure looks like it

    6. And lastly, I'm not even going to talk about how awful the jets look, but they're completely out of proportion in relation to one another.


    I'm sure many of you agree, this poster is FAKE

  13. Oh god this is extremely fake and poorly made. Look at Optimus, it's a lousy cut and paste job from several Optmus pictures. You can see on his left shoulder where it cuts off. Badly made.

    told ya guys the Aerialbots are in!

  15. this is DEFINITELY FAKE!!!!
    how do i kno?
    look at the right and bottom edges of the poster. it is a VERY VERY bad cutting there. all crooked.
    and also, if u look closely at the very first post of this poster on this blog, you can clearly tell that the right part of the frame was colored in with black paint. other parts of the frame has glare but the right side doesnt.

  16. Looks like someone learned the low opacity slider in the layers box and had a blast using it on Optimus :D

    I'm guessing that the poster was made over seas. I read an article a couple months back how companies in China are cranking out duplicates of art work and posters like hot-cakes. The articles controversy was: Is it still art on your wall when it's mass produced? Or is it now considered "decoration" (even if it's a Picasso painting)? China is the cheapest place to get books, posters, etc. produced.

    Even if an art student then made this on their spare time....shame of them for producing this after only taking Photoshop 101.

    And who claimed they saw the poster at ToyFair?

  17. and ALSO,
    look at optimus' freaking right arm!!!!
    its OUT OF PLACE!!!!!!!!!! =O
    if u still dunno wut im talkin about, compare it wit the left arm. right arm is obviously lower than the left arm.
    and the right upper arm is on optimus' side instead of on his shoulders

  18. Don't like this poster at all. Looks poxxy.

  19. This is not real. Way to amature. A Movie this BIG would put out a crappy poster like this? Come on guys. It's like a Vocational High School project.

  22. FAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  23. This more like the inside cover of a 3-disc DVD set....I wonder if Target will do another transforming shell? Best Buy was insane when they sold the exclusive Rachet and Megatron. The Megatron lithograph was cheaply printed....kinda like this fake poster.

    LOL @ that "SUPER GAY" poster

  26. As epic as it may appear, check out Primes left arm. Look a little odd?

  27. How many of us does it take to scream FAKEEE until the site owner here gets it and stops posting that butt-ugly poster?

  29. Looks a bit crappy but I somewhat like the Pyramids with the light coming out in the middle. Nice to see Prime in the poster too, but I don't think this is the official poster.

  30. Don Murphy already confirmed its fakery

    ReplyDelete
  31. Damn Good fake poster IMO

    ReplyDelete
  32. I was pissed as hell when ALL the 'bots voice actors weren't listed until after the damn disclaimers! I think Optimus Prime and co. should have gone [i]before[/i] Shia LeFag and his hoe ass girlfriend.

  34. why are we talkin about a fake poster anyways? Optimus Prime is GOING TO DIE!!!!! we need to focus on what will happen 2 him! i heard that the big a** robot "Demolisher" is going to kill him! i dont want to see the 2nd movie if i hear that hes going to die. that probably explains why hes in the sky and all covered up by clouds, because he DIED!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    but i need a positive answer on if he does die. plz, does any one know???
