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.

Ah, so aesthetically or artistically "wrong"? I can see that.

Yep, that's the gist of it.

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.

It's nice, just yeah, too blue. Shame the nose isn't red and the flames just spread from that. 'Cos let's face it, the flames are gonna stay now.


Haha! Bay is the ultimate troll... :lol: :lol: :lol: That theory makes the most sense to me.

That Bot wrote:Red looks bad on film, so it's a way for Prime to retain his iconic red chest/blue legs in robot mode without having a hard-to-film truck.

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:

This. Pimp my ride is approbo. :SICK:

Would a green Rodimus piss anyone off? At this point, I get the eerie feeling that a lot of you just don't care for consistency all that much. Let's just be happy that someone is filming Transformers at all, right? :roll:
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

RiddlerJ wrote:What's the point in their names? It's not like they're going to resemble their previous counterparts in any fashion anyway. Might as well call them Flippy and Floppy.

PLEASE EMAIL BAY RIGHT NOW!!!! :twisted: +1 on those two names!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!! :lol: Somehow, Flippy and Floppy seem more appropriate than Drift and ... yeah.

Hardspark wrote:I mean - The franchise is certainly in need of the money to the point when it will affect the character choices and vehicles sooooooooooo much aren't they?

Disappointed.

Again.

I get the same impression... that the car sponsors are deciding the movie more than even Bay... I mean, does he make a list of possible characters, email a bunch of car companies and then wait patiently for some checks??? It makes writing a movie a lot easier, I suppose... :-?

DUDE! WHAT??? Bumblebee warming shelves?!?! That's just crazy talk! The kids LOVE Bumblebee and everyone but you knows it. Quit trolling this thread. [-( Now I'm going back to my game of Sarcastiball. Awesome.

Hopefully this is more of Bays prerelease lies. Dont change prime from the pete to this crap. :BANG_HEAD: :CON:

I was waiting for a truck-drivin'-hater. Cause me thinks to me'self, "Doesn't this hideous truck offend actual professionals? I'm pretty sure Bay is sh*tting all over the profession..." Well, I think the job is incomplete. Everyone knows that big trucks like this have rodeo clowns painted on the mudflaps. And drop-down blow-up dolls in the passenger seat (for carpool lanes! ;) And other porpoises, I suppose :-? ). Ehhhh, no, I think the flames are worse than all of that... :BANG_HEAD:

I've always preferred this generation of Camaro over the one originally sported by Bumblebee.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but it needs more yellow.

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 ;)
