Mr Orci has stated that "Leaked information from the TFW Insider may be mis-information", which as we have stated in the past would be the perfect forum for such information. That "Soundwave is not a pickup truck", which was reported by the same insider. Mr Orci then goes on to mention that "false information generally does not work, and the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen misinformatin hasn't worked that well"
Roberto Orci also comments that "The Fallen, in the title Revenge of the Fallen, may be a robot or may just stand for the a defeated side". At Transformers At The Moon we have stood by our belief that this Fallen will be the Decepticons rather than the comic strip character, though it would be interesting to see that character on screen.
Regarding action sequences, Roberto Orci commented "We can also look forward to fights like the Freeway Brawl in the first movie between Optimus Prime and Bonecrusher, only longer this time around. There's also a good chance we might see a Decepticon who is ridiculously loyal to Megatron and the Decepticon cause. Just don't expect it to be Tidal Wave."
Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and the other writers just could not fund a way to make him work in the sequel's story … or so they say.
