WESTWOOD, California — Some played with the action figures when they were children; others remember the cartoon show. Some were there to see Megan Fox on the big-screen; others were there for Shia LaBeouf. The one thing everyone on the red carpet for Monday's [movie id="369059"]"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"[/movie] premiere seemed to share, however, was a love of all things big, noisy and — in the immortal words of Michael Bay — awesome.
"We made history in this movie with a scene that involved the biggest explosion scene with actors in it," marveled series star Tyrese, who joked that the hairs on the back of his neck still haven't grown back. "It was this huge explosion."
Isabel Lucas, who plays the mysterious, sexy Alice in the sequel, agreed. "We have one of the biggest explosions ever in a film," she said. "And we filmed on the Egyptian pyramids, which hasn't happened in 20 years."
It's no secret that director Bay is a larger-than-life personality who likes his films just as big. Naturally, then, Monday's "Transformers" premiere at the Mann Village was the hottest ticket in town. Among the evening's attendees were Fox, LaBeouf, Bay, Josh Duhamel, Kendra Wilkinson, Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush.
"I didn't play with the Transformers toys, but I am a fan," explained former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day, who arrived wearing an Optimus Prime-inspired ensemble. "I came because I want to be a part of the biggest blockbuster film of the summer."
"I am a Transformer fan," singer Ciara said. "And I did see the last one, which was amazing. So, I'm excited."
Another famous fan, "Gossip Girl" star Taylor Momsen, speculated about what she'd transform into if she were to ever become an Autobot or Decepticon. "I would probably be an airplane, because it'd be cool to fly."
"I would be a dog," All-American Rejects member Nick Wheeler said of his dream robotic form. "Being on the road, I never got to have a dog, so I'd like to be one. A dog that dispenses coffee and beer."
"I'd want to be a credit card that doesn't ever have a limit," grinned Matthew Marsden, a newcomer to the "Transformers" series. Asked what the best parts of the sequel were, Marsden wasted no time in yielding to his robot co-stars. "I think Optimus Prime is a badass in this — and Ravage is cool too."
