Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen

I'm a massive fan of the Transformers series. It's the only cartoon I can recall watching religiously back in the 80's. Whilst Michael Bay's effort had a couple of flaws (e.g. too many stories going on at once, redesigns of some of the robots), it was fairly entertaining. Even my girlfriend liked it....

Anyhow, the sequel is set to be released on 26th June, and will introduce a load of new Autobots and Decepticons, such as Jetfire, Sideswipe, Arcee (who will now transform into a motorbike), Jolt, The Contructicons (who will merge to form Devastator), and Soundwave. According to Wikipedia, the plot revolves around something to do with Egypt. I'm interested in seeing where they go with this movie...As long as they get Soundwave correct, I'm happy. Dude is my favourite Transformer of all time. But that's enough geekery for now....

There's also random footage of movie shoots appearing up online from. This one shows some of the vehicles used for the autobots: A Silver Concept Centennial Corvette (Sideswipe), a yellow Chevy Camaro (Bumblebee), flamed truck (Optimus Prime), an orange Chevrolet Beat and green Chevy Trax (unknown characters), and a GMC Dropkick C4500 (Ironhide).

Another clip, this time with Bumblebee.
