autobot shield/symbol on non-transformer vehicles

Postby Transformado » Sat Apr 21, 2012 7:43 pm

In the last movie, DOTM, I saw a small white jet (learjet) that transported a few of the main characters, before they boarded the plane, I noticed on one of the scenes that the jet had the Autobot symbol, i always thought that the symbol would only be worn by an Autobot/Decepticon; was this a sign that there were some hidden characters in the movie(s)? :???:

Thanks,

Maybe it was there to show it belonged on their unit.

If I recall, it also had NEST logos.

While it seemed to be just a normal plane affiliated with NEST/Autobots, I can't really recall any other clear examples of a non-Transformer with Bot/Con insignias (the Superfund truck isn't clear either way). In fact the symbols have been used to show that the vehicle IS indeed a Cybertronian in disguise. Besides, what Autobot can even fit in the small jet?

It may very well be a hold-over from some earlier draft. It possibly may have been the rumored Silverbolt.

This is what I thought as well.

Fun bit of trivia: That plane is actually Michael Bay's private jet, and even has the registration code N4500X, nearly the same as Blackout's (4500X) :michaelbay:
