i hope hasbro doesn't continue with their usual BS.. where they have tons of awesome looking robots in the movie.. but we only get toys of a couple main characters.. a bunch of new molds of characters that aren't in the movie, and they leave out a bunch of characters that are actually in the movie.

that pisses me off.

I seriously cant get over the amount of complaining about the "cars" used in this movie! I Had to join this forum just so I can comment. Have any of you actually ever seen the original Transformers TV show? So two complaints I am seeing over and over again are

Number 1 - Too many cars
The original Transformers show in the first two seasons had a combined cast of over 29 vehicles! When Prime rolled our to attack he had a real "strike force" with him not 5 Autobots or a hand full of soldiers he had close to 20 cars with him. Because they are Autobots he had automobiles with him!! And when the first movie came out everyone complained on here that "Why is there only 5 Autobots?) now Bay listens and adds a larger Autobot cast and WE STILL COMPLAIN. They come from a whole planet of transformers why is it so hard to believe there would be more than just 5 of them? Come on people!

Number 2 - The cars are two nice!! Too fancy!!
Again did any of you see the original source material, the majority of the original transformers were all high end expensive cars for their time or tricked out versions of sports cars.

Bluestreak Nissan 280ZX Turbo
Jazz Martini Racing Porsche 935
Mirage Formula One Ligier JS11
Prowl Nissan 280ZX
Sideswipe Lamborghini Countach
Sunstreaker Lamborghini Countach
Wheeljack Lancia Stratos Turbo
Red Alert Lamborghini Countach
Smokescreen Nissan 280ZX-R
Tracks Chevrolet Corvette C3
Cliffjumper Porsche 924 Turbo
Windcharger Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am

ALL COOL CARS! I mean who wants to see a movie or a cartoon staring a Honda Civic and Ford Focus and a Station Wagon! If you watch a movie about 5 women or men super heroes they cast good looking people in that role because they want to attract people who like these men or women and they way they look. So for a movie about robot cars they want to catch eye catching sexy cars, that will attract car lovers and THE BIGGEST feature sell TOYS!!! Because if you cant sell toys you cant make movies! PERIOD. If they make a movie that just Fanboys will love NO ONE BUT THE 100 PEOPLE ON HERE WILL GO SEE IT AND IT WILL MAKE NO MONEY!! You have to appeal to the 38 year man who loves Transformers but also his friends and his wife and his kids. Because you have to sell tickets. And Micheal Bay puts people in theaters and makes fun to watch movies.

He is listening to us giving us more cars and more characters instead of more humans. ENJOY SOMETHING FOR ONCE!

Ok I am done, go ahead and attack back

1. Do not presume to bunch everyone into one category of complaints.
2. My complaint was that the cars looked too similar to one another and that they weren't very impressive looking.
3. I seem to be the only one who asked for more robot SCREENTIME rather then a larger robot cast. (There is a difference, and Bay clearly chose the latter.) >:oP

I was not grouping everyone, I was saying the majority of complaints and not just in this post but in multiple post. Too many cars too many cars. Cars are too nice. And you say the cars look too similar? I just do not see that, they are all unique and colorful. With more cars that would mean more car screen time I would think? Just wish most fanboys would give it a chance before they even see what the movie will be about.

It looks to me like they are going all out to make it more closer to the original content. I mean like I said G! Transformers its Optimus and 17 other car type robots fighting the Decepticons. Thats how it should be!

Michael Bay has given us a look at another alt mode for Transformers 4. This one is a shiny looking 2014 Argosy cab-over truck by Freightliner. Who this character is remains to be seen but many are screaming Motormaster.

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.

Nemesis Prime? There is the trashed version from earlier, which this probably upgrades to. Stunticons would cool too, of course.

I would be more apt to saying this is Ultra Magnus than Motor Master. That's going by the blue lights and the colours being hidden.

i think i may get my wish, though. which is to see ultra magnus & kup.

this being magnus and the rusted cab being kup. but who knows, i just hope the movie strives for quality over quantity.

The fact that it's a cab over implies Motormaster. The other reveals were a little to flashy/exotic to be autobots. I know mirage was a Ferrari, and Optimus is not exactly subtle, and it's Bay we are talking about, but the exotics just strike me more as Decepticons. If it is the Stunticons, let's hope Hasbro doesn't screw it up and make a vehicle combiner without individual robot modes, or produce 3 and drop the rest. I would be ok with a human alliance version as well.

Interesting, the picture is gray scale, with digitally added blue lights. Meaning we have no idea what the colour scheme on this is going to be.

Given bay's track record, it will be yet another completely generic and wholly interchangeable (and forgettable) character, who is identified not my any sort of personality or character development, but by a corny accent or goofy gimmick.

It may as well be Sky Lynx.

You're right it does look similar. You think they might cheap out on the toy and re-release the old classics Nemesis Prime in the new movie line? I really hope not. Can't stop buying Black Primes!!

I think it looks great! I so hope this is Motormaster and those cars on the trailer were Stunticons. If its Magnus that would be cool as well. The truck design is amazing, looks bad ass!

Very good find....Also looking at Nemesis Prime Wiki,

Nemesis Prime appears in his self-titled episode of Transformers: Prime. Nemesis Prime is a clone of Optimus Prime created by M.E.C.H. as the prototype of "Project: Chimera" complete with Cybertronian technology, a supply of Energon, and Starscream's Transformation Cog. Nemesis Prime's color scheme is the same as Optimus', but with duller coloring. He also has yellow optics.



This kinda falls into the plot of movie about Cybertronian tech getting into the wrong hands.

Wasn't Nemesis Prime made by MECH after they got a hold of Cybertronian tech which falls into the plot of the movie ?

You guys do realize that that is a manipulated photo and for all anyone knows that dark color could be Forest Green or Navy Blue and what you think is Silver could well be Metallic Pink.
For Primus' sake folks, why don't all of you just stand in line for your t-shirt that says "I'm Bay's Bitch" across both the front AND back of it because seriously, you all are nothing more than an exercise in psychological manipulation. Never mind the fact that probably half of these supposed characters y'all are being teased with will be nothing more than a passing memory on the cutting room floor anyways.
If all of you want to play the game however, I can't stop you but personally I am not a fan of letting some arrogant, egocentric, pompous ass yank my chain in any way, shape or form. Yeah, it's a cool truck... great design, has a lot of potential... for a hundred other things related to the film industry ASIDE from being a potential movie character!!

I feel like Motormaster wouldn't have light blue lights all over him. If I had to guess, I'd wager it's 'ol Nemesis, especially given that the rusted out cab we saw was all G1 Optimus Prime underneath.
