Michael Bay has given us a look at another alt mode for Transformers 4. This one is a shiny looking 2014 Argosy cab-over truck by Freightliner. Who this character is remains to be seen but many are screaming Motormaster.

Hmm motormaster... Maybe they are making stunticons because they have that other dead end looking vehicle :???:
But maybe its ultra Magnus? :-? :BOT:

Nemesis Prime? There is the trashed version from earlier, which this probably upgrades to. Stunticons would cool too, of course.

I would be more apt to saying this is Ultra Magnus than Motor Master. That's going by the blue lights and the colours being hidden.

that is not no damn motormaster.

i think i may get my wish, though. which is to see ultra magnus & kup.

this being magnus and the rusted cab being kup. but who knows, i just hope the movie strives for quality over quantity.

The fact that it's a cab over implies Motormaster. The other reveals were a little to flashy/exotic to be autobots. I know mirage was a Ferrari, and Optimus is not exactly subtle, and it's Bay we are talking about, but the exotics just strike me more as Decepticons. If it is the Stunticons, let's hope Hasbro doesn't screw it up and make a vehicle combiner without individual robot modes, or produce 3 and drop the rest. I would be ok with a human alliance version as well.

Interesting, the picture is gray scale, with digitally added blue lights. Meaning we have no idea what the colour scheme on this is going to be.

Given bay's track record, it will be yet another completely generic and wholly interchangeable (and forgettable) character, who is identified not my any sort of personality or character development, but by a corny accent or goofy gimmick.

It may as well be Sky Lynx.

To me it looks like Classics Nemesis Prime.

You're right it does look similar. You think they might cheap out on the toy and re-release the old classics Nemesis Prime in the new movie line? I really hope not. Can't stop buying Black Primes!!

I think it looks great! I so hope this is Motormaster and those cars on the trailer were Stunticons. If its Magnus that would be cool as well. The truck design is amazing, looks bad ass!

Very good find....Also looking at Nemesis Prime Wiki,

Nemesis Prime appears in his self-titled episode of Transformers: Prime. Nemesis Prime is a clone of Optimus Prime created by M.E.C.H. as the prototype of "Project: Chimera" complete with Cybertronian technology, a supply of Energon, and Starscream's Transformation Cog. Nemesis Prime's color scheme is the same as Optimus', but with duller coloring. He also has yellow optics.



This kinda falls into the plot of movie about Cybertronian tech getting into the wrong hands.

Wasn't Nemesis Prime made by MECH after they got a hold of Cybertronian tech which falls into the plot of the movie ?

This alt mode would have been perfect for Optimus Prime instead of that "Pimp my Ride" abomination they are using.

I hope they make a LOT of leader figs for this flick. Scale appropriate, too. Not like that Bumblebee and Ironhide crap with the last one.

You guys do realize that that is a manipulated photo and for all anyone knows that dark color could be Forest Green or Navy Blue and what you think is Silver could well be Metallic Pink.
For Primus' sake folks, why don't all of you just stand in line for your t-shirt that says "I'm Bay's Bitch" across both the front AND back of it because seriously, you all are nothing more than an exercise in psychological manipulation. Never mind the fact that probably half of these supposed characters y'all are being teased with will be nothing more than a passing memory on the cutting room floor anyways.
If all of you want to play the game however, I can't stop you but personally I am not a fan of letting some arrogant, egocentric, pompous ass yank my chain in any way, shape or form. Yeah, it's a cool truck... great design, has a lot of potential... for a hundred other things related to the film industry ASIDE from being a potential movie character!!

I feel like Motormaster wouldn't have light blue lights all over him. If I had to guess, I'd wager it's 'ol Nemesis, especially given that the rusted out cab we saw was all G1 Optimus Prime underneath.

I could go for another good Classics Prime repaint, haha. It's just SUCH a good mold! :grin:
Shame it won't happen, it'll be a new movie-style mold, of course.

everyone who said prime cant be a cabover was just proven wrong, that would make a much better prime than this pimp my ride crap. But anyway i say magnus but with all the top end sports cars on set im leaning more towards motormaster. You have to remember they dont care about colors in these movies, just remember sideswipe & ironhide. Wonder if they'll get combiners right this time, probably not.
