Looks as a poster does, but what are the small things in front of sam? So many airplanes? Hint of the superion?

Some people are calling it fake, I don't know what to make of this.

real or not, that is a lame poster...

There were a few planes used in the filming for bombing runs, so having them in a spot on the poster can make sense, but it would seem to make more sense to have a poster that says wow or is a shot that gives more emphasis to the revenge aspect of the film(if it has anything to do with film other than the title!!)

How about showing prime in the frame of him getting his ass handed to him.....that would be cool (well, to me anyway :rolleyes:)

Right now... i am leaning towards Fake....

My reason? there were some very good fake posters revealed a long while back in the same manner as that one....

Untill it's revealed as real on here or some other legit source, i'm sceptical....

When you put it that way, it kind of look a bit lame and "ordinary" compared to the first poster.

Not badass enough to be real. Remember the poster for TF1? Now that was hardcore!

Indeed, remember they also had a poster from the first film that looked like it was inspired by Star Wars.

I think it's a fake. It reminds me the Drew Struzan's compositions, beautiful, but maybe not in TFs style.
Anyway, I think it's too far from the first movie picture... And it sounds strange that a fan-made blog would have the pic before the official movie sites, this one included...

Just to clarify, we're talking about this poster right?

Well, this was revealed at the toy fair yesterday, so it is very likely real. Also I think it looks great. The Fallen on the pyramid looks creepy, and Optimus looks as wonderful as ever so I can't complain.

Oh god, that poster is so fake it's beyond imagination, not to mention poor photoshop work. Look at Optimus, it looks like the person took a bunch of old Optimus pics and pieced them together, look at the right arm, it is a direct match to the one here:

As for the torso, it's just a reverse of this picture:

The problems were generally easy to spot if you are familiar with other TF images, but it took me awhile to highlight them and upload the images. Dial up is a bitch.

Trailbreaker, there is one problem with your detective work. All the pictures you found of Optimus had the mouth cover up. The posters face does not have the face cover. You can see his mouth!

Sorry man.

I tip my hat to you, sir! You could tell it was a bad bit of 'shop but I can't believe you sourced all that!

That's because that head was Photoshopped on. It had to come from a movie screencap. I have seen that facial expression on him before. Need to do some more research. But other than that, the poster was just a lousy cut and past job.

A photoshop job done by the marketers for the movie? Come on its possible.

How do you know that poster was even at the toy fair? It could just be in some guy's bedroom.

I admit there is the possiblity that it was faked. The thing is, you see all that writing and credit stuff at the bottom of the poster? You see that a lot on other official posters for movies. Plus, who would go to the trouble to list all that info just to make a fake poster?

Also, the poster style is very similar to the official posters for the first movie. Just my theory, we will know soon if it is fake anyway. Whether I am right or wrong, it is a awesome poster. I would hang it on my wall.

Actually, the writing on that poster is the same exact writing as the old one, lay one on top of the other and they are a direct match. So no, they didn't go through all of that trouble to list it.

Did anyone else notice one of Prime's arms seems to be hanging in an unnatural position, like it was dislocated? Maybe I'm seeing it the wrong way.
