Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has been building up to be even more succesuful that the 2007 release of Transformers. Since our first peek in the Super Bowl spot and then two weeks later when the trailer hit it looked like Michael Bay was delivering what he promised – bigger & badder robots than before with more KABOOM! KAPOW! EXPLOSIVO!
Michael Bay has been playing games throughout production to keep people guessing which characters will appear in the film. Well guess no more..Paramount Pictures has released the full list of Transformers that will appear in Revenge of the Fallen. Noticeably absent is Decepticon leader, Megatron, who died at the end of Transformers and was dumped in the ocean by the US Military. Michael Bay denied that Megatron will be in the film, but actor Hugo Weaving said in an interview that he had recorded dialogue for the part. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see on June 24th 2009.

OPTIMUS PRIME: The Autobots’ leader – Peterbuilt 18 wheeler
