He actually looks better and better. My onyl gripe is the fake tire on his forearm. Woud have been nice if they could have incorporate the real one into the transformation.

Heck even if you had to detach it from car mode position and just stick it onto his arm after wards it would have been better, than having a gratuitous immovable tire there under the car in car mode.

I have a few guesses on who I think the new Depcepticon Audi-R8 might be.

Mirage

Prowl

Wheel Jack

Down Shift

Cliff Jumper


But knowing on how Mr. Bay & Company is I say that this is a new Bot entirely new the the Tranformers-Mythology such as they did with Barricade.

Heck it could even be Barricade in a new ALT Mode. Maybe he got himself upgraded after his fight ended with BB.


But I am pretty sure this will be another new character we dont know about which is why everything is being kept hush, hush at the moment.

But he does look pretty damn cool and I cant wait too see this bad boy on the Silver-Screen.

Also for people wanting to know if the Fallen will have an Earth ALT mode I highly doubt it. See he is of Exscoskeleton Design and is already one of the most powerful transformers in the universe so he wouldnt neeed an ALT Mode also he will have Tentacles also.


But I cant wait too see who the Audi-R8 will turn out to be, but like I say it will most likely be another new Character such as Barricade was.


I was hoping for it to be a new Female Decepticon to be Arcee's rival that would be for a cool fight sequence in the movie.

Despite my not collecting movie figures any more, I may have to cave and buy this guy. He's looking better and better and I'm a big Audi fan. Audi + Transformers = WIN!

This Audi looks good to me, and is on the short list for my pick ups.

Actually, Crosswise and all his many repaints(Smokescreen, Movie Jolt, Botcon shattered Glass Jazz and Ricochet) are modeled after the Seat Cupra GT.


Crosswise is based on the Bugatti Veyron, slightly modified to get around VW. larger front end, full spoiler.

Maybe it is Barricade! He did dissapear right? Maybe he took a new alt mode, and picked up Ravage on the way. He reminds me of Barricadea lot for some reason. This guy's gonna be awesome on the big screen

it cant be barricade because barricade was practically all black before,so even if he did scan a new form,i doubt bay would have his robot mode colors completely change

I disagree, the front end is markedly Seat Cupra, not Bugatti Veyron:

The Veyron has a decidedly different front styling for the grill, where as the Seat Cupra has the closer square grill look.

Probably they took cues from both cars, but it looks closer to the Seat IMHO.

Those all sound suspiciously like Autobot names.

I know that it doesn't contain the reference that was given, but the designers have mentioned that they were working from the Veyron body when Autovolt was being created.

Keep in mind that both Seat and Bugatti are VW properties and VW has been know to grab bit and pieces from other sections to put together special editions and show cars (just look at the Volkswagen Golf GTI W12)

Not to mention that the Veyron is still the faster, more well know, and more importantly more available.

Hmm, great vehicle mode and detailing, for certain, but I'm not liking the proportions and overall look of the bot mode. I might pass on this one, I passed on Barricade and the first Jazz from the last movie.

I think he's the new alter form of Barricade for RTOF

Dude he just looks sinister. Pure Evil. Looks awesome and thats defiantly Barricade. Im gonna miss the Mustang but its a great upgrade. He better have more screen time in this crappy movie.

Actually take a closer look at the toy. There doesn't seem to be a single Audi emblem anywhere an it, And it features an unusually large Decepticon logo on the car. None of the other licensed vehicles from the first film had that...

Remember, Audi, VW and Porsche are all part of the same company. So perhaps they didn't want their name to be associated with violence or whatever excuse they used back when Alts were around.

However I will agree that the alt mode does look very nice. And the exploded chest look in robot mode is also great.

Transformation is extremely similar to Barricade, but the color scheme reminds me of alternator Grimlock.

maybe vw let bay use the r8 in filming but didn't want a "war toy"so hasbro just moded the body. The toy r8 is missing the two small intakes on the front bumper, the toys hood is different and the back end is way different than the real r8 it's missing the two rear vents, tail lights are different, and the exhust are the wrong shape and in the wrong spot that'de be my guess as to why it's missing all this stuff.

It is more likely that it was a matter of taking an Audi and have Seleen modify it as was done with Barricade. As Bay needed had agreements with Chevy to be the "good guys", and Ford would not be happy with them using a Mustang as a "Bad Guy" by using a Seleen custom they can get around any issues Ford would have.

OK maybe I'm having a brain fart, but what is the other prototype there with the Audi? Can someone help me out? :roll:

I am really liking that bot mode...the detailing on the arms is fantastic...:-) Must buy for sure! :D

The red bother's me a bit...
But from the previous concepts, to me, this guy screams BARRICADE.

Sorry, but I would definitely have to disagree.
While the styling of the bonnet is definitely an alteration (at least) of the Veyron's, if you look at the headlights, they are very much like those of the Veyron.
I don't mean to be sticking my nose into business, but I passed over this point and my head just about fritzed at seeing that toy called a SEAT.
:grin:

Why is this resurrected? And why do you say he's called SEAT? We all know this is Sideways and many of us have him already.
