    TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN (Preview #2)

    Last November, the author put up a post to summarize some of the rumours to be in the second installment of Transformers. 2 months have passed and new rumours replacing others keep emerging on the net. Here is the first post that we have 2 months back and this is the current most. Do note that some of the informations are true based on the writing time. The author will try to make it as close to the sources as possible but with Michael Bay's efforts to trick us into believing it's real although it's false, the author cannot guarantee at first that these infos are correct. [Sources: Based on the large resources I gathered around at Wikipedia, IGN, Transformers official website, Michael Bay's blog]
