Thanks to Instagram user rezzieboi we have a few additional images of the Transformers 4 vehicles from the Navajo Tribal Park in Monument Valley filming. The first image reveals a previously unseen older truck very reminiscent to the design of G1 Optimus Prime with the recently revealed Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse in the foreground. According to rezzieboi the covered vehicle in the second image is Bumblebee, who has yet to revealed. The third and forth images give us additional looks at the new Optimus Prime truck mode.

is slingshot really a surprise? how many names have just been slapped on vehicles because they were either available or cause hasbro wanted to retain the copyright. Just do what i do, get the figure then name it whatever you want. 80% of all my movie figures have been renamed.

So Slingshot is a car, and Grimlock is a truck?

Weird!

Optimus looks like the design from Transformers Prime a little. They should have really changed it up if they want to increase sales of toys...

I'm hoping for a Gavatron character. I'm thinking there is a possibility his toy might satisfy classics as well.

I would love all 5 dinos in the movie, to add to there popularity, so we get some classics toys as well.

I suspect that rusty old truck is probably just a rusty old truck. Would be a bit weird to have a rusty old truck bot in DotM then have another rusty old truck bot in the next movie(s).
On the other hand, we've had 4 different silver cars already.

Hmm.... :-? Well, i have no objection to the Veryon, or the Corvette. Both look good. But i have to say i'm very surprised that there using a $1,000,000 sports car as one of the alt modes. (well... Now that i think about it, they did use the original Camaro concept which was valued around $1.5 million. So I guess this isn't that big of a surprise)

As far as Prime's new alot mode. Its not bad, but its not great either.
Likes-
-Color choices
-new truck type
-Bigger, more bulkier stance.

Dislikes-
-Triple Chrome stack. At certain angles, it looks like its just one big smoke stack instead of three
-Buldge on the hood. The nose is tall enough. Didn't need to add to it.
-Mirrors. Really?? #-o Prime is 13 feet tall in truck mode and you add in some tiny ass mirrors meant for a Datsun 240Z?? :BANG_HEAD: Terrible. Just terrible. :SICK:

As for those complaining about them being to flashy and not "robots in disguise"... TF have always had some sort of flash to them. IN G1 Mirage was an F1 car. Jazz a Porche 953, Warpath a red Tank, Powerglide a red A-10 warthog, decepticon seekers were muli color F-15's, etc. TF: Energon brought Prime as a fire truck with giant folded wings and water cannon's on the side. Face it people, flash sells. And when all this is said and done, there summer movies designed to make money. Personally, i'd much rather look at a Green hopped up corvette over an 80's minivan any day.

I think this version of Optimus is smaller than the version from the previous films.

The vehicles look cool but I am concerned about one thing in particular. The Optimus Prime truck is a custom, therefore actually seeing it on the road is nigh impossible unless you happen to live where they are filming. I don't know about the rest of you but growing up as a kid with Transformers, road trips were more fun if you could spot an autobot on the road. Seeing a yellow Volswagon bug meant Bumblebee was nearby. Happen to see a white Porsche, bet that was Jazz. It really is a nothing thing but custom vehicles for Transformers just take the fun out of it. :BOT:

I think Prime looks awesome as a Western Star. The Peterbuilt was badass, but this Western Star Prime is awesome.

As I stated earlier, G1 had quite a few exotic cars themselves. Mirage was an F1 car, Warpath a red tank, etc. Now fast forward to today, you c!n easily see about 10 yellow camaros a day, black Topkick trucks aren't all that unlikely as well. Check, it's not even uncommon to see a CH-53 helicopter fly over ( Blackout).

Sorry but this isn't the 80's and flashy sells. That's one thing I like about th movie alt modes. There unique.

Different continuity, different origins. Think of how Optimus acquired this universe's Matrix. He didn't have it on the fly in the beginning of the franchise.

Plus, those are names that haven't been used in the movie frachise, might as well make use out of them.

Not really. Visualizing a toy out of this, it would most likely have about the same amount of paint as the past movie Optimus Primes, whom also had flames on their chassis.

Samurai Drift, sounds good. I hope that Bugatti becomes a leader class figure that would be :grin: or they could make it voyager size or even better make it a human alliance figure that came with a hubcap figure that fitted in the trunk or hood of the Bugatti.


Didn't you know? Those spots are reserved for Bumblebee, since he's so popular. >:oP

I can see a Human Alliance coming out of this, but a straight up Voyager or Leader? That would wreck up the scale, if they decide to have scale as precedent. Now if he had been like a tank or larger, I'd agree with you.

New Idea: Car transformers with car transformers that fit inside them.


Carception.

No thanks. >:oP

That Bugatti is just WoW. The fastest car in the world, a transformer :APPLAUSE:


267.8 MPH. No kidding, that shit is fast, it's ridiculous. (source)

Wikipedia isn't a very reliable source. Remember, people of questionable standing edit the thing like crazy (even though the staff is well known to fix any errors, deliberate or accidental). Have they cited their source?

I'm curious more than anything about the rusty old cab. Could have sworn Bay was above the use such vehicles as main cast, if the cab is destined to become an Autobot/Decepticon.

*whew* That took time to write all that. I do believe this is the longest post I've ever written. :shock:

Reports are coming in from the Transformers 4 set at the Navajo Tribal Park in Monument Valley of an older model Camaro hanging out with the other confirmed Autobots. Instagram users mar10stm and killersquirrell have both posted images of the Camaro in question. Naturally the first character to come mind is Bumblebee since he's maintained his Camaro vehicle mode throughout the previous movie trilogy. If this is indeed Bumblebee he appears to have been taking fashion tips from his Transformers Prime Beast Hunters counterpart, as this Camaro is almost all black with yellow accents.

The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog have also posted an image of the black Camaro cruising with green Concept C7 Corvette Stingray. They speculate this may not be a Transformers character at all, but possibly one of Jack Reynor's character's race cars.

Check out the images mirrored below, and speculate away in the Energon Pub!

We´ve seen the new Optimus before, but it isn´t until now that he looks somewhat familiar, I think he´s based on an older design for movie 1.
No idea what the Camaro is, I have the feeling it´s just Marky Mark´s car in the movie.

Looking at the grill of the supposed Optimus, I can make out a very small Autobot badge. Barely. It appears that it is indeed Optimus's new form. Like I've said before, I prefer the old Peterbuilt model over this, but I can deal with it being this, just as I dealt with the first movie Optimus being different from the others.

On that note, I sincerely hope the flames will remain restricted to the movie franchise. I find them obnoxious and unethical.

Hasn't been confirmed as Bumblebee; there's hope.

Which could possibly be Bumblebee. Again, hasn't been confirmed, so we got time to speculate.

I'm pretty sure it's to be set several years after the events of Dark of the Moon, or like the newest Spiderman film, a complete reboot. Who knows?

What's that hanging from the front of the Camaro, where a bumper would be?
Seeing how there's a noticeable lack of Bumblebee's trademark stripes, I'm doubtful this is him. Of course, the colors alone don't mean it's BB, as we've seen in DotM.

And how is a flame paintjob "unethical"? I get not liking them, but but implying they're morally wrong, whaaaaa?!

"Unethical" also doubles as "not in standards with profession" (dictionary.com).

Perhaps I should have worded that better. What I mean to say is that it doesn't look good on a character meant to be Optimus Prime, who, traditionally, is just a straight-up truck colored red and blue. Rodimus is different, seeing how his pre-Prime state had flames.

is it so farfetched for that to be the new bumblebee? People are sick of the current BB so changing the alt mode makes sense. And since theres no way they would be allowed to make him into another brand/model vehicle they would be forced to go back to an older model.

Front air Dam or "splitter". Basicly a front wing designed to give the front of the car additional downforce. Given the cars wide body stance, it definatly fits with the "race car theme". So maybe it is just one of Mark Walberg's race cars.

Not far fetched at all. It would make sence given that we know the family has a racing back groud. So if Bee is involved with the family it makes sence that he would choose a new alt mode that was alittle more race inspired while still retaining his colors vehicle type that he's known for in the movies. I'm sure the next couple days will reviele quite a bit.

I think his flames fit him just fine. Help break up the standard red/blue paint scheme.

I don't really accept that. The damn things are CG'ed most of the time. And with today's amazing film equipment, I find it hard to believe a RED TRUCK is impossible to film (since, you know, this wouldn't be the FIRST movie appearance for a red f*cking truck :roll: ). Maybe against the sunset background? Jeeez... jazz it up in the final cut! They're selling car advertisement space like crazy - is it so hard to CG some red on a truck (assuming it really is impossible to film a red truck)? :HEADHURTS:

When you say green Rodimus, I actually imagine a neon green repaint of classic Rodimus... and that wouldn't be so bad. I guess my mind would accept the new color scheme if the robo's/alt modes retained some of their classic goodness. :x

Not feeling that new Optimus.... how would a driver even see the road or back up in that thing? Not to mention the toy's backpack kibble will probably be even larger now due to this things bloated size, unless they do something along the lines of FE Prime Optimus with the mold, which would be awesome :D
As for the rusty old truck, my guess is Bay is using it as the butt of a joke involving Optimus's new alt mode similarly to the whole yellow Volkswagen at the car lot with Camaro Bumblebee in the first movie.
Also just a guess, but I would say the classic Camaro seen in these pics is either the race driver character's car or if its an Autobot it will most likely be before they scan another alt mode since I doubt they would use a vehicle for a main character that they couldn't get a promotional deal with a manufacturer for a currently available model. Technically speaking even the new Optimus is advertising for a truck company, even if he is a heavy modded custom. Once again, just all my conjecture based on what we have seen from the previous films, will be interesting to see what really happens ;)

The older model Camaro seen at the Transformers 4 set in the Navajo Tribal Park in Monument Valley has been officially confirmed as Bumblebee! Director Michael Bay's official website has announced that Bumblebee's new vehicle mode is a highly modified, vintage 1967 Camaro SS. Check out the official image below.

Like the 67 Camaro. But Bee? Why go backwards, seeing as he was a new Camaro already. Hmmmmm........

I'm actually really pumped about Bee's new alt mode, it's one of my favorite muscle cars and the new color scheme is icing on the cake.

It would be insane if that rusty car is Ultra Magnus... I wouldn't be suprised considering he was scrapped for the third movie I believe.

I like Bumblbee's new look. Maybe a tad more yellow. A thin line going through the left and right sides of the car will do it for me.

I just want to see the robot modes already! It's definitely going to take a little time though. It would be nice if Bee has a voice in this movie but I don't think that is going to happen. Considering not being able to speak is his new gimmick.

It isn't a big deal to me. We just need more focus on the Transformers this time around.

Director Michael Bay's official website has announced that Bumblebee's new vehicle mode is a highly modified, vintage 1967 Camaro SS. Check out the official image below.

Bad. Ass. Almost makes up for Prime's shitty new alt mode. Almost.

Also, Magnus wasn't exactly "scrapped" from DotM, Sentinel Prime was originally going to be called Ultra Magnus, but then they changed it. They thought Magnus was too much of a goody-2-shoes to be a turncoat.

But if he was that rusty old cab-over? It'd be cool. Personally, I wish it was Grimlock. I really don't want to see a mechanical dinosaur. Not sure why.

well thats one step in the right direction, now we just have to hope his tranformation/robot mode is different. Still doesnt make up for Prims horrible alt mode, And i would accept that old cabover as magnus as long as he has his trailer and it looks like magnus. Hopefully its not Galvatron

Source for why they changed the name?

Shockwave and Megatron were labelled "Blitzwing" and "Cyclonus" in concept art, despite their identity being blatantly obvious. I could see them doing the same for Sentinel.
