We are still in the dark regarding the full goings-on in Transformers: The Dark of the Moon. There have been hints of a Transformers link to the USSR vs USA 60′s space race, but nothing in detail.
Well our quest for information has been aided by a Transformers 3 Push-Pops Board Book!
“The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime “Transformers” character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.”
It’s still not a whole lot, but more information will no doubt be revealed over the upcoming months (most likely on other Transformers merchandise).
