Writers Reveal Theme Of ‘Transformers Sequel. The Bad News? No Dinobots

 

Johndoe4880 writes in a interview with mtv.

 

writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman confirmed to MTV one you won’t be seeing: Dinobots. “We couldn’t quite figure out how to justify a robot that would pretend to be a dinosaur,†Orci said.

 

But surely Megatron will be back? Orci and Kurtzman playfully danced around the question. “Didn’t he get thrown into the bottom of the ocean?†Kurtzman laughed, with his partner adding, “That would be silly†in regards to a return for the arch-nemesis of the Autobots.

 

So what about the storyline? Bay has said in the past that Orci and Kurtzman sold him on the concept of a first “Transformers†movie by explaining that at its core the story was really about a boy and his car. So what theme lies at the heart of the sequel? Orci revealed that “It’s about being away from home. It’s a few years later and Sam is going to finally go to college and he’s going to face being away from home just as the autobots are having to deal with being away from Cybertron.â€

 

Oh, and what about that title? Why “Rise of the Fallenâ€? Orci deadpanned, “Because ‘Transformers 2′ sounds stupid.â€

Why can't they just say the Dinobots, followed Shockwave like in the comics? It's cannon and it fits. As for why they don't change into something modern the millions of years in stasis since they defeated Shockwave messed up their scanning ability. Then when BB called the Autobots it woke the Dinobots. As for why they didn't return to Cybertron their intergalactic transport ship the Ark was hit by the asteroid the killed off the dinosasurs.

 

Come on why can't these writers use a little imagination? Of course now that they won't be in the second they have to come up with some other explanation for their awakening since to much time will have passed to explain their awaking at BB's call to the Autobots.

in this movie cannon earth is just some far flung corner of the universe so if Shocky and the Dinobots did come to earth before the all spark with megatron in tow that would be one huge coincidence

Shocky came here to mess with primordial earth in the comics to create his own world. So that being said I doubt the other TFs on Cybertron would have known too much about it. Besides Shocky was a scientist, and an explorer like Skyfire so you could always throw him into the mix. Oh and yes I know Skyfire is supposedly a Decepticon in the new movie, but look back to the old show and you know what's probably going to happen with that.

Because that story sucks.

 

"We'll go down there and stop Shockwave no matter what it takes!"

"Okay, we'll need organic disguises."

"I'm not doing that!"

"But you said whatever it takes..."

"I know, but now I'm gonna be concerned about how I'll look to give you a chance to scan for some dinosaurs."

"Why couldn't my sensors have just registered dinosaurs to begin with so you don't look like a chump, Grimlock?"

"Simon Furman's got pages to fill."

 

EDIT: Not to mention the fact that the first movie played the "inactive robot buried in the Earth from a long time ago" card already, and it would be the height of ridiculousness to go there again.

I seriously doubt anyone will care the the Dinobots arent on screen when the movie comes out. With all the other plot going on, how'd you even notice they aren't there? I could see if Transformers was like The Fantastic Four or something and for the past 20 + years there's only been Optimus, Bumblebee, Jazz and Grimlock as the cast of Autobots. If that were true, then I could see it mattering that Grimlock's not there. But since it's not, who gives a shiznit.

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
