“Revenge of the Fallen” Fun Facts

michael_bay So first of all, How come no one told me  Michael Bay had a blog (www.michaelbay.com/newsblog)?  Needless to say I bookmarked it immediately.  Now on to the meat of the matter; Bay posted a list of fun facts about next week’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”.  The full list is on the his blog but here are choice few:

  • 14 robots last time, 46 robots this time (ILM only)
  • If you had all the gold ever mined in the history of man, you could build a little more than half of Devastator.
  • Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots.
  • Devastator’s hand is traveling 390 miles per hour when he punches the pyramid.
  • The pyramid destruction simulation was 8 times bigger than the old rigid simulation all-time record holder at ILM.
  • All robot parts laid out end to end would stretch from one side of California to the other, about 180 miles
  • Devastator’s parts stacked tip to tip would be as tall as 58 empire state buildings.
  • If all the texture maps on the show were printed on 1 square yard sheets, they would cover 13 football fields.
  • TF1 took 20 Terabytes of disk space. Trans2 took 145 Terabytes. Seven times bigger!
  • 145 terabytes would fill 35,000 DVDs. Stacked one on top of the other without storage cases, they would be 145 feet tall.

I can’t wait for next week to finally check out the movie, especially considering one of my favorite G1 ‘formers, Soundwave, is in it:

  1. I don’t know how I feel about this movie yet. I’ll see it eventually, but I don’t see myself rushing to theaters.

  2. What Zach, no rendering time facts? 16000 years on a home pc! That is so cool! Also, I’m your biggest fan.
