Transformers 2 Updates: More Bots, No Slot?

{mosimage}Two new tidbits about the upcoming sequel to astf have popped up online recently. First, the potentially bad news: in a Hollywood Reporter article about the future of Paramount, there's an offhand mention of Transformers 2 being "not yet slotted." Could this mean the movie has lost its formerly "pencilled-in" release date of June 26 2009, perhaps due to delays from the Writers Guild of America strike? There's not much to go on, and it could just mean that the date is STILL "pencilled-in" but not yet completely confirmed, so we'll just have to see how this develops.

In undoubtedly better news, Michael Bay has posted a note on his News Blog confirming that there will be new, "really really unique" robots in the sequel, and "there are a lot of them this time." Click here to read that post.
