Slashercon wrote:I'm sorry but, am I the only one underwhelmed by the vehicles for this movie so far? :???: Looking back, the cars from the previous trilogy were more defined and spread out in design as well as seemed more distinct of character, where as three of the new cars revealed for this film kinda look alike too much for my taste. (Not saying several cars from the previous trilogy didn't look alike, just that they did a good job at keeping them look different enough.)


You're not the only one who isn't overly impressed with this move towards high-end "super cars". I'd rather see a selection of average or slightly above average vehicles used, something that makes the whole "Robots in Disguise" premise actually plausible. The over-priced, over-hyped, impossible to attain cars aren't disguises, they're a rich mans way of compensating for a lack of personality or penis (or both) and I think Bay is showing off that fact brilliantly by overloading this film with these vehicles. These cars are impractical to say the very least unless their purpose is to make me even more appreciative of the classic Camaro form that 'Bee is using in which case it's working perfectly. I hate to say it but so far "Bee, Hound and Grimlock are the only 3 thoroughly rugged vehicles on the entire set. Even the black rally rigs are just fiberglass shells over a roll cage. I get the feeling that this trend of flashiness is only going to get worse in this film.

Grimlock? :???:

You mean that ugly looking semi? There's no confirmation of it having an identity yet, much less of it being Grimlock.

YouTube user Mendenhall512 has uploaded a video of his 1965 and 1969 GTO's being loaded up on a car hauler, which he states have been rented by Paramount for use in "Transformers 4". According to the poster these will be Mark Wahlberg's character's personal vehicles. Between the vintage and modern model vehicles "Transformers 4" is going to pack a lot of muscle.

Paramount rented my 1969 GTO & 1965 GTO to be used in the new Transformers 4 film code named E74. Look out for the cars next summer when the movie comes out as they will be Mark Wahlberg's very own Goats in the story line.

If those cars are indeed being used in the film, that first car is doomed to a fiery death.

Now we get to see some REAL cars in the Transformers movies. I can only hope and pray that one of those would get "scanned" at the last second in the movie and get picked up as an alt mode by one of the 'Bots (or a 'Con, I don't care which) and we get blessed with having a toy come from it. Too much to ask, I know, but it will be a joy seeing (and hopefully hearing) those beauties on the big screen.

Just had a frightening thought...
I could totally see Bay doing this as a sick joke, and it truly would be the sickest of jokes, but he damn well better not bring the twins back as these two cars. I'll be BEYOND pissed off if that happens. I'll straight up leave the theater and demand my money back. No, must think positive... the twins are dead and nobody could be THAT tasteless as to pull something like that. Please tell me I'm right about this...

Honestly I would love to see some old muscle in this. I'm beyond happy that Bee is an old camaro. I just feel there are too many cars the common man would never be able to afford. I wanna see a good mix of cars in this.

Even Bay wouldn't want to Bring back the twins as those "crummy" unsettling cars. They don't even look as if they fit their mass/shapes. (And if he does, well, we have the Twins' haters to thank for that. :roll: )

"Transformers 4" is now filming in Detroit, and thanks to a couple of Instagram users we have images and video of what could be even more new vehicles to be featured in the upcoming film. iamjwest and kingmyreee both caught a car hauler carrying a mysterious silver concept Cadillac Cien, concept convertible Buick Velite, white Ferrari, and blue Aston Martin. We've mirrored iamjwest's image below, kingmyreee has video available on their Instagram page that shows the Ferrari and Aston Martin. kingmyreee also has video that specifically mentions Tyrese being on set.

Will these vehicles turn out to be Transformers? Time will tell, but it looks like "Transformers 4" is going to be a car enthusiasts dream!

The back 2 are the Cadillac Cien and Buick Velite concept cars. Very odd since they're pretty old. They came out at least 5 or so years ago on the auto show circuit. Future Caddys and Buicks are moving away from those kinds of designs too.

I wonder if Bay raided GM's private car collection for background characters? Since this was taken around Detroit, they are close to where GM stores all its cool cars in Sterling Heights.

I think they probably will be unnamed background characters for a climactic mega battle royale.

One thing to keep in mind is that ALL transport services are in the habit of getting the absolute most out of their loads especially with today's fuel prices. I would expect the same to hold true with Paramount's shipping crews so if there is any chance they can run a full rig to a destination, even if it means delivering items to a second destination a bit early, they are likely going to do it. There's a chance that all of that load wasn't heading to the TF4 shoot site so I'd say expecting to see all of those cars even as background characters would be a pointless endeavor. I know we have a few truckers on here who will back me up on this and having a brother who works in the transportation industry, I know first hand some of the juggling he's had to do on many occasions to make sending a rig to a given region a worthwhile venture.
I'm just saying... don't get your hopes up folks.

"Crummy"?? You did NOT just call those cars... "crummy"! Seriously?! Do you have even one drop of testosterone in your body? Did you not hear that exhaust rumble in that video clip? How did that beautiful sound not reach down and envelope your soul at it's most primal level? That rapturous melody makes me want to eat 10 pounds of raw meat, wrap myself in a flag singing "God Bless America" while I blow sh** up on a scale that would make Michael Bay jealous! That rumble is a sound stronger than any mating call and the exhaust is like a pheromone. I don't care if those cars are relegated to being background pieces, they're the stars of the whole damn film as far as I'm concerned.
Optimus would be wise to worship the asphalt those cars roll on. :BOWDOWN:
Those are most certainly NOT crummy cars!

Cars yesterday, cars today, and blimey, if it don't look like cars again tomorrer.

The flood of cars killed my interested in the DotM line, and TF4 looking to be as car-heavy as a Fast and Furious movie I think I may be disinterested in the TF4 toys as well. And I'm usually all about Movieverse toys.

Eh, it was the stupid MechTech gimmick that turned me off, but more or less that is another reason why I didn't like Dark of the Moon.

I like the idea of weapons being interchangeable but the fact that most of the weapons didn't lockout and reduced the size of the figures wasn't a smart idea. (characters like Skids & Mudflap were the only ones that benefited from the size reduction.) Not to mention us getting leader class figures for Bumblebee & Ironhide just seemed to waste slots for characters that would sooner warrant a leader class figure, like Megatron and Shockwave. I can only hope that the TF4 toys can go back into the ROTF/HFTD days in terms of ingenuity. I also hope that we get some nice alt modes for the decepticons in this film, since we don't have a hint of any so far.
