User boM, who was supposedly an extra on Transformers: Revenge of the Falle and posted this rumour (huge spoiler warning) from the film, has supplied TFormers.com with a massive gallery of photos from behind-the-scenes of the Transformers sequel, scheduled to be released on June 26th 2009.

The gallery (of 117 photos) features many of the Transformers vehicles, including Sideswipe (the Corvette Centennial concept car), Mudflap (red Chevrolet Trax), Skids (green Chevrolet Beat/Spark), Jolt (blue Chevrolet Volt), the Arcee bikes (pink, purple, blue) as well as returning characters Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Ratchet & Bumblebee and the mysterious ice cream truck.

I forgot about the ice cream truck. It looks like it's got a Decepticon symbol. I hope it's not a stupid acting silly character, like animated Blitzwing kinda thing. That wuoldn't be good for a live movie

dece[ticon logo where do you see the logo?

it would suck if the icecream truck is soundwave only good thing i can see that would come out of soundwave being icecream truck kids come up to him in truck mode and trasnform everyone starts running but that truck mode doesnt suite him at all i dont want him to be that truck.

knowing te name of the truck is intersting surprise for everyonme but the suspense is annyoing liked to know who the truck is autobot or decetixcon

Id like to know what the banner on the icecream truck says. I can make out the D-Con symbol but none of the words.

I love these cars. The Trax and Spark are awesome. Their not girly, and they look like mean looking putz-around cars.

I am in love with the Volt, though. I love the concept, and the design is beast.

Ice cream truck FTW!!!

What's up with that camel? Is he a pretender?! :P

...also those pics of Megan Fox are pretty stalker-ish (...since I'm totally an expert on taking non-stalker-ish photos of Megan Fox =P~ )

why is the bot mode of bb always there, the film is either CGI or (i wish) made with real robots walking and fighting.

also nice to see my favourite bot ratchet back

and anyone notice ironhide dosnt have any labels on him (hence the new toy)

I've blown that pic of the ice-cream truck up as far as I can (darn near made my eyes cross) It wasa fuzzy as hell but I am inclined to agree that the symbol at the start of the black rectangular sticker is actually a decepticon logo. I don't know whether to applaud someone on the production staff for a flash of comedic genius or declare that the sick bastard be shot! :-?
My brain is having a hard time wrapping itself around this one. I think I need to go lie down.

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.

i thought (and still hope) that the icecream truck is mudflap and skids before thay reformat (based on the video of the icecream truck cut in half and spining)

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.

Well, I still think the Cent. Vette is ugly, along with the Beat..tehe..but otherwise it's looking good.

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!
