News submissions from João Miguel Borges on Facebook, and fellow Seibertronian MasterSoundBlaster have pointed us in the direction of two new galleries of the filming vehicles used for both Dark Of The Moon (Ratchet, Leadfoot, Dino) and Age Of Extinction. (Hound, disguised Optimus, Bumblebee, the as of yet unnamed Corvette and also the as of yet unnamed Bugatti.) Before you read on, it should be noted that this is not a confirmation of the appearance of Dino or Leadfoot in the next film. The Ferrari may just be a display piece, while Leadfoot seems to have been filmed, much like the muddied vehicles on the rest of the trailer. As you can see, there are newly acquired racing stripes for the Ferrari, leading some to believe that Dino not only has an appearance in the film, but a slight visual upgrade to match his newly redesigned compatriots.

Here's what our friends had to say:

There's no speculation as to whether or not he's actually going to be in the movie itself, but he and the rest of the cast can be seen here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.652887038076517.1073741847.137857229579503&type=1

And here are some shots or Dino along with what appears to be Leadfoot and Ratchet as they head back out to film: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.652885688076652.1073741846.137857229579503&type=1

Lol first :michaelbay:

Anyway...all we need now is confirmation of Sideswipe, Topspin and Roadbuster, which to be honest I didn't think Dino was gonna return either due to budgetcuts, lack of character development or the passing of his voice actor Francesco Quinn* (rip)...or simply all the above. Ratchet and leadfoot were seen leaving china w 2 of the fighter cars..so they're confirmed. Hopefully them not being seen on set as much means they're off attending other matters and not getting killed off to make room for the newbies :BOT:

Just wanted to point out that Dino is a Ferrari, not a Lamborghini :grin:

I hope this means we'll get Dino/Mirage and Leadfoot in Deluxe size for the figures. :BOT:

I have a really, really bad feeling that Ratchet isn't making it out of the next movie alive. :(

Ferrari has an exclusive contract with Mattel, so it is unlikely that we will get a Dino/Mirage. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

As for the wreckers, I sure as hell hope for a Human Alliance Topspin, to complete the wrecker trio :) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Actually, I like idea, while I like Ratchet personally, last two films seems to give us strong message: There is no room for him. Also killing some Autobot during first minutes of the movie would awesome. It propably isn't enough to save Movieuniverse, but at least for a while we could belive that Bay at least try to pretend hat he don't ingore Decepticon fans.

Yes but it was actually a real ambulance on set for safety reasons.

Out of all the "main" Autobots in the movies, he definitely got the shaft. I mean, after the first one he pretty much did nothing and hardly appeared at all. I would bet money he's written off in AoE. I must admit that would definitely tick me off as I consider him a mainstay, (even if the writers of these movies don't).

I just have a feeling the Decepticons are going to make a statement and kill off a few of the background Autobots, (Ratchet, any of the Wreckers, Dino etc....).

at least, unlike Ironhide he was funny. Yeas, that Ironhide. For me he should ended killed by Megatron instead of Jazz (Witch supoosed to meet his final fate from hand of Brawl). I agree that he's fight with Dreads was awesome, but "not kipping him alive by three movies even if in two he is a complete dumb ass" awesome.
