Comic Movie Adapation Preview

IDW has posted five pages from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Adaptation #1 issue that will be out in comic stores starting May 20th. Unlike the novels, the comic adaptation doesn't need the same lead time so it is probably based on a more current version of the film script but not necessarily the final cut of the film. In a way the various adaptations provide an interesting look at how a film script evolves over time.

The pages can be found here and they do provide a few spoilers. It provides additional confirmation of the Ice Cream Truck being the Twins, suggests that Arcee is all three bikes that share a single mind, and that Stratosphere (who in the movie is probably just a plane, not a TF) has a role in the sense that he provides the air transportation to drop Optimus in position to take on Demolisher. Thanks to ghola-tleilaxu, Phil, and Gregory for the link.

  1. Cool but i posted this 4 hours ago on my blog

    http://scorpio-thefuture.blogspot.com/2009/05/transformers-movie-adaption-1-preview.html

    Well never mind. Still Demolisher should have survived longer he seems much smaller in the comics.

  4. Could just be them finishing each other's sentences.

    Especially since in the second panel, the one says they don't care who "bags him". If they were all one mind, why would that even matter if one caught him over the other if they're all the same person?

    And wouldn't it be Triplets? Unless two are twins and the third being Chromia??

    This is annoyingly confusing.

    Shared concousness. Each one has a mind of there own and a collective hive mind. So they can tell what each other is saying. Or they have fought for so long together they know exactly what each other is thinking

  6. i have a few thihg id like to say-- first, about the video game post, if you ask me this is official confirmation that Breakaway is in the movie. why would thet make him a playable character if hes not in the movie? they wouldnt let you play as a drone if they werent in the movie. and why the fuck cant you play as Sideswipe!!! i was looking forward to it. and wat about playing as the Fallen!!!! WTF!

    and about the comic-- definetly picking it up but i dont really think that was stratosphere, i think it was siply a guy in the back who was part of N.E.S.T who told him to jump and Prime jumped.

    also, that was not an RH-400 mining excavator once again,... WTTF!!!!!

    //Especially since in the second panel, the one says they don't care who "bags him". If they were all one mind, why would that even matter if one caught him over the other if they're all the same person?

    I think, they're talking about Twins or Arcee-bikes.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ya demolizher is to smal...i think they comic guys fucked this up......deloisher is a Rh400......and RH400 is huge i mean like huge huge huge tha thing is as tall as a 3 floor building .....

    And how the hell did prime defeat him so easily??

    ReplyDelete
  12. ^^ i think they skiped some pages and 4 the video game atleast we can play as Ratchet i preordered this game a month ago... now im regretting it...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Or maybe it's another excavator, because it looks like Optimus kills him on the spot. Probably a "redshirt."

    ReplyDelete
  14. you won't regret it RY. the online play will be sick. I'll get you my online i.d. when it comes out and I'll gladly put a whooping on you with Starscream. jk

    ReplyDelete
  15. alright im getting PS3 in a bit or xbox... but for now i reserved it for ps2 :-(

    ReplyDelete
  16. i betcha Ratchet is playable in this game because hes gonna die in the movie. they just want you to play as him so you know wat it will feel like since you didnt play him in the 1st game. hes seen a lot in the trailer for the game, when ironhide is taking down the helicopter, he next to him, u can see his sholder

    ReplyDelete
  17. @: ghola-tleilaxu

    That makes more sense and would be an error on my part because of how I read it.

    Now it's more obvious they're talking about the Twins and not themselves and that they're referring to their team or the Twins to "bag him".

    Plus, now it also makes more sense that they might be one mind talking and each one is saying part of the sentence while still referring to herself as one with "My play now!".

    I still say Boo cause I don't care for the combining thing for her character. :c

  20. Scorpio if you blog is so good y are you here

    ReplyDelete
  21. wow, this latest news has really been like throwing water on the fire.

    yeah i'm still interested and all, but the feeling of "i gotta see this now" is gone.

    ReplyDelete
  22. please don't post links to your blogs, its a bit rude.

    scorpio this blog owner is about the only person thats nice to you, give some respect back.

    ReplyDelete
  23. his blog sucks anyway

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can't stand Scorpio but this really is the icing on the cake. I think it's time for you and your one maybe two friends to go.

    What an attention seeking punk

    ReplyDelete
  25. stop hating on Scorpio, what did he ever do to you. and were here like everyother person has said atleast a billion times WERE HERE TO TALK TRANSFORMERS~!! if you cant live with that get off your mom and leave ;-)

    and i wouldnt be talking because you dont even have the balls to post with a username... A-holes

    who is that that Sideways is jumping on?? is it a drone? and im sure that demolisher dies in Shangai but sideways live's

  27. RY, Anoymous is just as descriptive as RY.

    thats one of the things, i don't want to know who anyone on this blog is, thats their business, not mine.

    i don't want someone spamming this blog talking about how cool they are, or how they have the best ideas. no one cares. its even rude to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i didn't do any of those thing's. ^

    ReplyDelete
  29. i know you didn't trying to get you to understand why people are mad and that they have a right to be.

    as well as the fact that no one here is using their real name and no one should. its not about us, its about getting transformer info.

    what scorpio is doing is screaming about himself.

    ReplyDelete
  30. ohh well i got to go im at the Borgota in AC for the Hells kitchen season finale on the internet from my phone :-) bi

    ReplyDelete
  31. But you know how Chromia says this is Arcee. Why would she say that? Why not have ARCEE say that? Anyway, maybe since Arcee is the team leader, she overrides the other team's minds.

    I expected Ironhide to be constantly annoyed with the Twins. Oh well, they weren't even funny in their two panels :/

    Stratosphere still may make a robot appearence. Maybe in the final battle he is the one that shoots that protoform from the trailer. Idk.

    Demolisher is pretty small in this. Isn't Sideswipe involved here too? Isn't Sideways supposed to die? The Fallen seems too much like Megatron from movie one (just more powerful).

    This movie is being spoiled for me so so much now. Oh well, I just need to stop searching "Transformers Live" and "TFW2005" on Google lol :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. yeah the movie seems over.
    the fallen practically slips on a banana peel to be taken out, so much for infinity strength.

    not sure what is up with him being on the moon. ruins his character a bit.

    I agree. The blog owner didnt have a problem with him posting his stuff so why should you?

    No way then we would be stuck with a twat like you doing all the posts. I would rather talk to scorpio than a dick like you.

  35. Chill people. So Scorpy advertises his blog so what. Most people have on other peoples blogs. Just ignore it if you dont like it. Besides i checked most of the stuff in the past few months have been found by Scorpy i really wouldnt want to see us left out because of all the dickheads who hate him solely because he posts about his TRANSFORMERS related blog

    ReplyDelete
  36. ^^^
    Also on this film seeing as most people will be leaving now it would be great to actually have a blog that is updated more often so we dont have many people posting about a certain link to new transformers stuff. This is why i like Scorpios work he has a certain uniuqeness.

  37. ok OBVIOUSLY Prime doesn't destroy demolisher in the movie because how the hell is he going to form into devastator? lol, yea the comic book has good ideas as to how the movie could go about, BUT i really doubt that is how it's going to be in the movie. Bay would not let something like this slip especially if it were the actual events in the movie. just my thought

    ReplyDelete
  38. Dont want any more complaints so i wont mention my blog.
    Stand Bush has remade Transformers the Touch to try to get into the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack:

  39. You want Spoilers:

    Bay has changed the plot of Transformers ROTF. Jetfire staysm dead. Sam is resurected by the allspark power within him and Starscream betrays Megatron at the end of the film leading to the fight on the skyscrapper.

  40. Demolishor DIES5/15/2009 3:16 AM

    To the guy who thinks the comic is wrong about Demolishor.....YOU are wrong. Demolishor's head is clearly visible in the Vegas footage as being removed from his body.....let's recap:

    The Junior novel, newest comic, and Showest footage have him as being NOT ALIVE therefore he could not form Devastator. Case closed!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. "Dont want any more complaints so i wont mention my blog."
    --------------------------------------
    Yeah---I'm sure you won't mention it again. I bet every post you make will have the word blog scattered throughout it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Why is everyone dissin Scorp for promo'in his blog? Who gives a flyin' crap! This is about the Transformers (all of'em!) and that's how it should be! It's all based on a freakin comic book and cartoon! Keep an open mind people!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I posted the last comment, but have a few more...

    Is it just me or is Optimus tryin' to sell Coors Light?

    And when you have as much clout as BAY (it's in caps for a reason, pay your respects!) you can do what ever the hell you want! A couple other things I thing would look great in the next movie...

    Dinobots ( at least Grimlock, here to protect the sun harvester when it was first built )

    Ghettoblaster ( Autobots need a communication bot)

    Yeah, Optimus just sold me another 12 pack of Coors Light ( Gotta love TV! )



    I don't care what bot is doin what in each movie! I just wanna see many Transformers kickin the crap out of each other!

    P.S. This is by far the best blog for Transformers that I've seen! ( just callin a spade a spade )

    ReplyDelete
  44. ** YAWN **

    There will never be Dino-bots as long as BAY is at the helm

    BTW..Scorpio isn't a bad guy but that is really low to promote your own blog on this one. It would be different if it was one post but I've seen it in other threads and to top that off...he tells TFLive that he had posted a story on his own blog 4 hours prior. I'm sure the admin here has more on his plate than a kid who jumps at the first bit of news that is shown on other forums. It would be a REAL treat to see him find a story on his own---just my 2 cents

    Does anyone know who the five protoforms are?

    ReplyDelete
  55. "Does anyone know who the five protoforms are?"
    ----------------------------------------------
    Long Haul, Mixmaster, Rampage we know so far but....I think Hightower {he could be used to prop up Meg's body w/his crane hook} & Scavenger {I say that Soundwave gives him that RH-400 alt mode after Demolishor's death}

    ReplyDelete
  56. Well i wonder if were ever gonna find out what does happened to demolisher and if he did get killed...How inda hell did he end up as part of devestator

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think that Prime does kill Demolishor in Shanghai..

    BUT... Scavenger later arrives and Soundwave gives him the same scanned vehicle data that Demolishor had..

    therefore it is Scavenger who forms Devastator, not Demolishor..

    Remember all the mix up confusion on why both Demolishor AND Scavenger were on that release poster?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thats the most logical theory yet...

    ReplyDelete
  59. Does anyone that blog on here ever go to Bigbot.com?? Its not a blog but a info site like Thetransformers.net

  60. Counterpunch5/15/2009 3:31 PM

    Scorpio: I HATE repeating myself but those 5 protoforms are obviously Autobots. Prime & Bumblebee wont just look up & do nothing if they were Decepticons.

    I DONT CARE who those 5 Autobots are but I sure want to see them go for the kill in the movie...

    ReplyDelete
  61. Replying to Counterpunch:

    I didnt know you said about it before. Sorry. I still want to know which Autobots they are ment to be. They may be important.

    ReplyDelete
  62. My guess would be Breakaway & others from the game which has not been mentioned for the movie.

    Understood?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Counterpunch5/15/2009 4:33 PM

    forgot to add... of course they would be IMPORTANT. Hint * air support* Autobots.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Ok what 5 protoforms are you guys talkin about?? the ones that show up at the aircraft carrier??

    ReplyDelete
  65. ^^ On the comic. I thought the same thing earlier when I replied to Scorpio

    ReplyDelete
  66. Scorpio - any idea who the Autobot with the big 56 number of his back is? from the game...

    ReplyDelete
  67. Counterpunch5/15/2009 7:05 PM

    The more I look at Demolishor the more I think HOW STUPID HE LOOKS. What was his function back then on Cybertron if he had tracks/wheels for feet?

    A factory worker? churning out hot metals/ materials to construct buildings on Cybertron?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think those protoforms are Sideswipe, Breakaway, Stratosphere, Jolt and perhaps someone like Springer.
