Updated: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen robots revealed

[Updated: We now have the full list of Autobots and Decepticons that will be on view in the upcoming sequel film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen—listed on the new poster, above—as well as two new images of the Decepticons Ravage and Starscream, which you can view after the jump.]

Director Michael Bay and screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci gave USA Today a first look at the Autobots and Decepticons that will be hitting the screen when Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen premieres in theaters June 24.

Ever since the mechanical jaguar Ravage prowled through the trailer for this summer's sequel, audiences have been wanting more word about the feline-ish Decepticon.

"In the spirit of 'more than meets the eye,' Ravage isn't just lethal because of his sharp teeth," Kurtzman told the newspaper. "There's actually another skill set Ravage has that didn't exist before, so there's going to be a surprise for fans."

Ravage, as before, won't speak like the other Transformers.

Filmmaker Michael Bay has ensured that Ravage has lots of company, including many redesigned favorite robots from the original 1980s incarnation, in the new film.

As Orci and Kurtzman told SCI FI Wire in an exclusive interview, Arcee is the only female robot. USA Today reports that she turns up as Megan Fox's hot-pink motorcycle.

The Decepticon known as the Fallen is an ancient robot, sort of the Transformers' version of Lucifer. He's one of the original robot aliens, and his defiance and arrogance led to his banishment into another dimension. The screenwriters say that the Fallen holds the key to life on both Earth and Cybertron, the Transformers' home planet.
