Bay Comments on ShoWest Montage

Over at Michael Bay.com, Bay posted a quick comment on the Transformers 2 ShoWest Montage (updated with working video) that is getting pulled left and right from the internet (sadly). Thanks to Mcat for the heads-up.
The Showest footage was pulled down because it was just a 12-hour thing.

I just wanted the fans to get a taste of what we have been making for a year and a half because we have been so quiet. The piece was cut about a month ago for this Showest thing I accepted this past month - so as you can see many of the shots were far from being finished renders. This dinky little site received over 1,500,000 hits and 550,000 downloads in this short time. Anyway the trailer is being printed today and coming out on Wolverine and Star Trek. 64 days left!

  16. Good thing I downloaded the YouTube HD version yesterday. Also good that it will be with Star Trek so I don't have to watch Wolverine.

  17. Dear Blog Owner: I have a link to TFW2005 on the toys of Optimus and Jetfire confirming that they WILL combine. I also has a picture of Devastator, each Constructicon's vehicle mode, and the Megatron, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Skids and Mudflap RPMs.

    Good looking toy photos!

    On topic: Thats cool, I'm just glad I got to see it. I guess all or most of that footage will be shown in the trailer coming up but whatever.

    Hey SkidMudswipe, I corrected your quote for you. Don't worry, this one's a freebie.

  23. "Where Shanghai scene?! I want to see it!

    I believe they were filmed right near you!

    In the cities of Bethlehem and Long Beach, China.

    Just north of the Great Wall.

  24. @ chinese rulez

    ...SHUT UP!!! noone on this blog wants to hear you complain about the fricken chinese scene. In the Beginning it starts with demolisher getting discovered along with sideways, in Shangai, China

    and they DIDNT film it in Shangai, China so they could keep there budget down THERE IS YOUR ANSWER NOW STOP ASKING ABOUT FRICKEN CHINA OR SHANGAI

  35. Ry is starting to sound like Scorpio when he first started. Eventually he will get more annoying and start to act like he is authority of all Transformers.

  36. @Neo-K 182,

    The scene with Devastator looked terribly unfinished. Shadows to the environment weren't created, and the color levels did not match the rest of the scene around it. Its appearance of this stills (if you pause it) is of someone copying and pasting from two different pics of different levels. No balance whatsoever. So yeah, in that scene it is obviously unfinished. I can't wait to see it completed.
