Paramount Pictures has released to Yahoo a full list of all the Autobots and Decepticons that will appear in the new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen movie. Vacant from the list is the Decepticon leader, Megatron, who *spoilers* was killed at the end of the first movie and was last seen being dumped in the ocean.*end spoilers*
Michael Bay has denied that Megatron is in the new movie, but there are many rumors and photos floating around the net that show a new concept for Megatron. Actor Hugo Weaving even said in an interview that he had recorded dialogue for the part. I’m guessing that Bay is trying not to spoil Megatron’s surprise comeback in the new movie. Check out a full list of the 19 robots that have officially been announced to make appearances in the second film below:
- OPTIMUS PRIME: The Autobots’ leader – alternate form: Peterbilt truck.
- IRONHIDE: Weapons specialist – GMC Topkick.
- RATCHET: Medic – Hummer H2.
- BUMBLEBEE: Friend and mode of transportation for Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) – 2010 Chevorlet Camaro.
- ARCEE: A female Autobot – motorcycle.
- JETFIRE: An older Decepticon who switches sides – SR71 Blackbird jet.
- JOLT: the original toy was a Decepticon, but in the movie he’s a good guy – Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid.
- SKID & MUDFLAP: a.k.a. “The Twins” – Chevrolet Beat and Trax concept cars.
- STARSCREAM: Formerly Megatron’s second in command, he escaped at the end of the first movie – F-22 Raptor jet.
- SCORPONOK: The mechanical scorpion that attacked the American troops in the desert.
- THE FALLEN: One of the original Transformers, he’s called “the most elemental bad guy” by the screenwriters.
- SIDEWAYS: The Audi R8 seen crashing through a building in the trailer.
