I would love it if the old icecream truck is only there to make everyone wonder why the hell there's an old icecream truck there. Of course it would also be cool if it was Dispensor.

Jolt, Skids and Mudflad, why give them these names? I don't understand that. Why not go with more recognizeable characters? They should've made the twins red and yellow and call them Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. The blue Volt would've been a nice Tracks. Then the silver car could've been Wheeljack.

Because in bot mode, Skidz actually resembles his g1 self quite a good bit. Doors as wings, rear of car because feet and legs, hood makes the front, etc. The color doesnt match but even the alt mode somewhat resembles his g1 alt mode.

They can't use sideswipe because I believe that name is already taken by the Centenial Corvette concept car. Sunstreaker, meh, I never really cared for his persona anyway, I'd rather not see him in the movie. A "hot-shot pretty boy" is the last thing this movie needs, people are already complaining that the movie has too much ego because of Bay (I don't agree, but you can't stop close-minded gits making themselves look crazy for going ballistic over a movie that isn't even finished).

Besides, to be fair, renaming the twins in this movie sunstreaker and sideswipe would cause an uproar because the models picked for the twins are hardly sports cars.

What? Animated Blitzwing was awesome!

And on a diferent note, where did you see the 'Con symbol on the ice cream truck? I don't see it anywhere.

Under the serving window on either side of the ice cream truck is a black rectangular sticker with white and red wording and symbols. The symbol at the start of the sticker, upon magnifying, looks to be what I could only begin to describe as the Decepticon logo. The earlier pics. of the truck give a better view and the picture is less blurry when blown up but I just rechecked both pics. and it is the only logical conclusion as to what that symbol is. The other "logical" premise that I have come up with is that the ice cream trucks sole purpose on the set is to make any of the rabid fans who get their hands on "leaked" pictures scratch their heads and go "W...T...F...!"
A chance for Michael Bay and his crew to get some payback for all of the fanboy annoyances they had to put up with during production of the first movie. If my premise is, in fact, true then I'm going to laugh my ass off! I would consider it sheer cruel genius on Bay's part and would love to shake his hand for it.

Isnt it possible that Bay can alter the decepticon logo through computer graphics to be an autobot symbol? that would be misinformation at its finest.

Plus, we arent really gonna know names until we hear them on a trailer, official release, or in the movie. Sideswipe could have changed 3 times by now.

I still think the ice-cream truck is a practical joke on Bay's part (and a damn funny one). Every other vehicle on the set and then some has been ID'ed in one way or another whether it be through toys produced or press releases except for the Cheech & Chong ice cream truck. They made a toy for the piddly RC truck and named it Wheelie.
It doesn't get much worse than that which is what makes me believe that the ice cream wagon is just a ruse. Doesn't really matter what the logo is, it served it's purpose and got some of us fans to waste time investigating nothing. If I'm wrong then it still served it's purpose and Bay wins again. Twisted genius is still genius!
