R2D2 in Transformers 2

Jun. 26, 2009by: James Thoo
Did you guys see R2D2 in STAR TREK earlier this year? Well he was there.



Apparently now you can find him in TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN too. TheForce.net reports:

There's an R2-D2 flying around in there somewhere," revealed Scott Farrar, the film's visual-effects supervisor, who also worked on the "Star Wars" episodes "Return of the Jedi" and "The Phantom Menace." "There's a little bit of space junk thrown in there; see if you can find it. It's a scene in the desert." Interestingly enough, George Lucas' charismatic droid also had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in "Star Trek," which shares the same writing team as "Transformers." Is it a coincidence? "Perhaps," screenwriter Alex Kurtzman grinned mischievously. "Perhaps not."'

Did any of you guys notice it? I didn't. And I'm usually so sharp. I wonder what might have been distracting me. So weird.

@ANTI -- So terminator invented time travel, huh? I think HG wells would have something to say about that.... Or maybe you just mean the idea of going back and changing the present/future ... oh wait, thats ALSO in his book....

Then again, was I expecting unbiased judgment from someone whose handle is "anti"?

Allrighty Then.

how the hell is anyone suppose to know from that stupid little speck,looks like space junk to me.

Doesn't suprise me though since they "borrowed" an idea straight out the terminator universe.

why would the screenwriters have anything to do with a little visual effects easter egg? probably just something the ILM guys did because they were bored.

Cooooooooooooool

Wow, this cranks the fun-factor on both those films all the way up to 11!!!! FUN!!!!! I love easter eggs like that, especially in a shitty movie like TF2. Man, I'll be sure to freeze-frame that goodness in hi-def blu-ray!! I hope they release a "making of" about how R2 was brought into the mix. Ahhh, saliva all over my keyboard... FUN!!!
