+1. Not cool, Newsmasters... not cool at all.

The Dude wrote:Well, seeing as this is a Michael Bay Transformers movie, in all likelihood these names mean nothing, just requests from Hasbro to keep the trademarks alive for a couple more years. Also, "Lambo?" "Pagani?" Cool, one of the few things I didn't like about the last two sequels was the lack of really incredibly blatant product placement!


I think they're saving the Menasor reveal for later. 8)



Although, I gotta say, overall, the guy who leaked this sheet is a D*CK! There's no reason to leak something like this! The move is coming in less than a year. I would have preferred to be surprised by previews (no thanks to Seibertron's amazing titling staff).

PS: "But Michael Bay said there'd be no Dinobots! He said so! :-B :-B :-B "
Can some of you nerds accept that what people SAY and what people DO are two different things? I swear if I hear one more, "But Hasbro staff said...!" :BANG_HEAD:

I think Bay has Dinobots because even Bay can understand how cool Dinobots can be. OR, it's quite possible that Hasbro did indeed tell him to throw them in there, to keep copyrights and such (as another poster suggested). Either way, maybe we can all agree to stop using quotes interchangeably with facts? :roll:

OH! Yea, yea, yea I hope we gets those Dinobots. They mentioned an archeology dig so maybe they will be actual dinosaur alt modes, please? Cyclonus also awesome. Just hope the Menasor rumours are true, Stunticons are my favorite combiner.

This has been an ongoing battle between some users and Seibertron.com for the past 10 years since movie news first started appearing. The purpose of Seibertron.com is to inform our users or anything relevant to Transformers. To ensure that articles can be found via Google searches and such, we put prominent key words in our titles. We have no intentions of making Seibertron.com a spoiler free zone. One of the primary purposes of this site is to provide as much information as possible including any available spoilers that we come across. If all of the titles of our news articles were spoiler free, they'd make for some pretty boring titles to read.

I changed the title this time around but this is not standard practice here and our titles will continue to NOT be spoiler free as that hurts us tremendously with search engine optimization and getting general movie going audiences to read our articles (which far outnumber us die hard fans).

My guess is that there will be a "Dinobot" named Cyclonus, who changes from a robotic "dinosaur" into some sort of product placement item. He will be called Cyclonus because of his ability to fart.

He will also drool a lot and talk with a "funny" accent.

The SU-47 would be perfect for Cyclonus. So I now know Bay will go in the complete opposite direction, maybe a Prius or something.

Why has this been removed from front page? Did Nelson ask for it to be taken down?

And I apologize for the title in the forum, but i agree with Ryan, this is a news site after all >:oP

I have a feeling that Cyclonus will join the autobots and will be the samurai looking to regain his honour, as opposed to drift, who will probably represent the character in name only. I mean who drifts in a bugatti, of all cars.

Happened to look a little closer before the link was taken down. It lists Peter Cullen as a stunt driver. Could he be cast as not only the voice of Optimus Prime, but also his holodriver?

The irony is that this IS a site for hardcore fans. Of course, from a business point of view, I respect and understand your stance. But as an actual customer, I can interpret the same sentence as, "Look, you're poor compared to the masses of non-customers we could be shaking down!" I recall a similar statement from Hasbro; a testament to your sound business decisions. :APPLAUSE:

Nonetheless, say I DON'T want to be spoiled about the new movie: you're saying I can't really visit Seibertron until some time in Summer 2014, in order to avoid the inevitable spoilers.

Wait a second: NINTENDO! That's what your statement harkens back to (i.e. fans are nice, but look at the non-gaming market!!! :ic$: ). If I was a shareholder, I'd be quite happy with that philosophy, but alas, just a visitor. And the obnoxious (not you or Seibertron, I'm speaking generally) rabid desire for TF4 spoilers is quite detestable, IMO. SOME of us like being surprised about our movies... It's like missing the Super Bowl, and everyone won't shut up about it, so you can't (in any known dimension) actually enjoy the game AFTER it was aired. :sad:

FYI to ALL: PARAMOUNT requested this story/images be removed from the website. I saw something similar on TFORMERS.

Again, irony - visibility? Yes. To Paramount. Which is a good thing? :roll: Ah well, as Seiberton correctly stated: the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. If any of you need to NOT be spoiled.... ehhh, you're f-ed! :lol: :sad: :BANG_HEAD:
