I'm still going with we don't really know. But my guess would be Bay would propose certain vehicles to Hasbro and 99.9% of the time he gets it and would only get denied if they couldn't make a toy for it.

Hasbro may be in charge, but they still give plenty of creative leeway to the respective parties for them to make the movies that they want to make (while still remaining within Hasbro's area of approval, of course).

It's the same situation with all their other IP. Look at the Aligned Continuity. They let High Moon Studios tell a heavily G1-based story with the video games and let Hasbro Studios do its own thing with TF: Prime, even though Hasbro, Inc. wanted both to stay in continuity with each other.

i was unaware that GM owned lamborghini, Pagani Huayra, or bugatti.. interesting.

if that's the second ugliest car you've ever seen.. you either don't get out much, or you're blind. i think that's the single worst exaggeration i've read in this thread.


I'm pretty sure I never said anything about GM...

And no it is not an exaggeration. I don't care if you like the way it looks, be my guest to like it. I hate the look of it.


so what did you mean by "product placement" .. if you're not referring to GM.. then i don't see how product placement has anything to do with whether or not the film is bad or good.

and, like i said before, someone saying that this vehicle is the second ugliest car they've ever seen is a complete exaggeration. i guess you've never seen a neon before, or the 90's ford taurus, or escorts.. or the older nissan sentra's.. or the mazda miata, or those VW reefer mobiles.. all of those vehicles are far more ugly than this camaro.

hell, i didn't really like the camaro that bumblebee started out as.. but it grew on me seeing it action, and his robot mode looked great.

Well there was bound to be many contradictions between the two forms of media because leeway was given. Otherwise, I agree.

Once again, it's not an exaggeration. The only car I hate more is the PT Cruiser. This is a matter of opinion (something I am an advocate of, as many people will know) so dont tell me my own opinion is an exaggeration when it isn't. If you hate other cars more, be my guest, but this is my #2.

Also, you realize GM is not the only company in the world to own car manufacturers right?

Onlocationvacations.com has posted some new pictures of the vehicles stars of Transformers 4 chilling while filming on location at M-52 outside of Adrian, Michigan. We see Bumblebee in his new Camaro look with Optimus Prime. Also hanging with Optimus Prime is a Corvette Stingray. Also pictured is a Lamborghini and a blue Bugatti. Then we see the 2014 Argosy cab-over truck by Freightliner which has been speculated by fans to be many characters from Nemesis Prime to Motormaster to Galvatron.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Yeah, I think that's Galvatron too cause that preview had Optimus speeding away from that freight truck and im thinking that why would optimus be running from Motormasters like that. In the movie, Optimus runs from no one, that must be Big bad Galvatron. Im imagining Galvatron, Rodimus, Unicron for some reason. Maybe I saw it somewhere.

My Bugatti is looking sick. I'm praying that they make the gatti at least human alliance size and bigger and they should even * Make it the very first Hasbro collector's series figure.* Yeah Hasbro we need a premium collector's line. Oh and that lambo is, I can't take my eyes off it.

A movieverse premium figure collector's line. Starting with that Bugatti. For example, battle blade bumblebee but may a little smaller.

The cab over is going to be Galvatron, what better way to say FU to the fans than make the villain the vehicle most people wanted prime to be from day one. Plus Megatron was the truck from duel in DOTM so why not make Galvatron a truck too

Well, in that case, we also have two lines (again). The first came from the original movie line.

Image

Then we have Takara's Premium Series that (so far) comprise of Leader Class Optimus Prime and Brawl.

Image

Image

Your best bet is with the latter (the first one ended once the first movie line ended).

Not seeing a lot (any) faction symbols.

I think it's funny how people are so adamant that "Oh, such and such is this character" and "that one is totally this character". If there's one thing we know Bay to do it's to throw random TF names at random vehicles. The only one's we do know about are Prime and Bumblebee because they're the 'tentpole' characters of this franchise currently, Hound and one of the Wreckers. Unless there's been other announcements I haven't heard anything about then the rest are all up for speculation.

Bay has stated before that he's not a fan of mass-displacement which makes it highly unlikely that that cab-over-engine truck is Galvatron seeing as how it seems to have less mass than the new Prime. Why would the 'big bad' be the 'smaller-than-Prime-not-so-big-bad'? I could see it being Motormaster with combiner tech (sorry, Motorbreath) as that's something we've seen before in RotF or, heck, it could even be Powerglide for all we know because that's just the crazy sorta #$%@ Bay and his pet writer would pull.

speculation is part of the fun in expecting this movie, my friend

I think the cab over is Galvatron BUT I know too well that it may just be a generic 'con with a bad ass look :DANCE:

its easy for us to thin the corvette is Sideswipe cus we arleady had a 'vette 'swipe in the last two movies... >:oP

that bugatti is fast and great looking, so why not blurr? :grin:

but hey, expect with moderation, cos too much causes dissapointment. =; :BANG_HEAD:

One thing to take into consideration is what we saw in the video with the Optimus truck and the Freightliner. At first glance, the initial interpretation is that Optimus is driving away from the Freightliner, who is pursuing Optimus in a chase.

Another way to look at it is that Optimus is guiding the following Freightliner, who is falling behind Optimus since Optimus is eager to go forward, making it difficult for the Freightliner to keep up. Thus, maybe the Freightliner could be an Autobot.

The corvette is Sunstreaker... The Bugatti is Drift... The Sonic is Cliffjumper... The Freightliner is Galvatron... The Lambo is Prowl. FIgured as my first post I would put something out there for everyone. Been a lurker for a long time and just wanted a good first post. I promise I'm not trolling and I cant tell you how I know this, but I am about 87 percent sure on these being at least production names of the vehicles. They may not be final, but being around the set a lot you here things
