Remember the rescue vehicle that was barely visible in this early group shot of the "Transformers 4" Autobots? A new image has surfaced on the image sharing site Gyazo that gives us a better look at the vehicle, which appears to be an ambulance. The obvious first thought is Ratchet sporting a alt mode and deco, but the vehicle's identity remains unconfirmed for the moment. Check out the image mirrored below:

Sorry, but that new Optimus is ridiculous. The truck used in the first 3 was pretty sweet (flames aside) and looked like a truck that a truck company would actually have. In other words, he was in disguise. I'm glad Ratchet (if him) got a new vehicle mode. I didnt really like the one he had in the first 3. I hope he gets more screen time. He hasn't done much in the franchise yet.

Meh. He's the leader of the Autobots. Presumably by this point they're well known enough that they don't need to stay completely hidden. By now, his main concern is looking AWESOME. Which he does.

And don't knock the flames!

Funny you would say that...So in YOUR opinion just cause he doesnt use a truck mode that other people use somehow he's no longer "in disguise"? Are you being serious on that statement? Only a weirdo would go to a weird looking truck and say "Hey I think that's actually a robot" >.>...Nice logic right there buddy.

On other note...Cant wait to see Optimus's new robot mode :O...He looks awesome in that alt mode.

I just love how people are still griping about Optimus Primes Flames. "Oh no Michael bay destroyed my childhood! he put flames on Optimus and he's not a flat nose! Oh no!"

People get over it. Number one: Flat nosed semi's are "obsolete" Number two: Not one person complained about G2 Laser Optimus Prime. Not only was he a LONG NOSE semi his Colors while not red and blue still had the same basic pattern Bayverse Prime has (except the flames)

the other thing that bugs me...if so many people "hate" Michael bay for what he's doing with Transformers why do you people still support him? "Im not going to see that movie" but you do anyway and complain more? "I hate those new designs!" but yet you still collect the toys....Wow....

Actually, we still have flat-nose trucks over in the UK. Not sure if they're really the same thing as what Optimus was, though.

The most recent group shot of all of the vehicles and the ambulance in the background is most intriguing. Although I hate to say this, but the ambulance is just that. An ambulance. It will not be playing a part within the movie as it is not Ratchet.

As you can clearly see, it is a plane jane ambulance with no special characteristics at all. This ambulance is part of the on site safety and rescue crew for the stunt drivers in such a case as an accident occurs. All vehicles have a specific area in which they must park so that they will be out of frame for when scenes are shot.

As you can see within the picture, the camera vehicle is also parked amongst the other vehicles and known autobots. The only vehicle missing in the picture is Hound, so they must have him elsewhere in order to do a filming sequence. These vehicles are in hiding from the camera as you can see by the higher ground that is behind them. Filming will occur down the road or on the other side of that rise in ground.

I have gone to college for graphics and design among film makers, so I know quite a few tricks from just looking at pictures about movies.

You'd be surprised by how many folks there are who haven't seen the movies. ;)

Ok, on site medical unit makes sense and is completely logical, BUT I think you are forgetting something... :-B

First, that ambulance was seen while they were filming a convoy scene with all the bots, and now since he is sitting there with his buddies, I cannot disagree with you more on the med unit thing. I am sure they DO have medical units out there, but not that ride inline with the Transformers as they go down the road :HEADHURTS:

Second, you say that the ambulance has no distinctive markings or characteristics markings, etc... 1) They are Robots in Disguise and 2) there hasn't been a pic of the ambulance that's close enough of clear enough to make that specific of statement. :BANG_HEAD: The ONLY distinctive marking he would have is an Autobot symbol. :BOT:

Oh, and thanks for all the filmmaking tips and info you gave, but REALLY dude, does that have any bearing on what we are talking about?? As always, we can speculate all day, but we REALLY won't know till we see the toys and/or movie... :michaelbay:

I agree.

I'm loving how the Autobots look together. :BOT:

Very excited to see what is still left in store.

Trust me Sabr, the plot hole discussion threads prove that at least 70% of the people who hate the films haven't seen them. ;)

Many thanks to RE515TANT, who dropped by with some great images and a short video clip of the Rally Fighter vehicle from the "Transformes 4" filming in Texas. These images give us our best look to date at the vehicle, which has yet to revealed as a Transformer or human vehicle. Enjoy the embedded video and images below.

Special thanks to MacDogg for driving while I filmed.

Somebody's bound to like it but I think it's ugly as hell. It's a freakin sports car with monster truck wheels and a paint job that looks like black primer. Larry the Cable Guy would love it.

Hehe, yeah, that would be me :P.

I really dig this thing and I'm betting it's one of the Dreds in a new form due in part to the colors as well as the large Cadillac behind it with matching rims.

I like gunmetal as a color on badass cars (I'm also a big fan of the Batmobile :P).

Them rims/tires give the vehicle a Decepticon feeling. Maybe shall I say Knockout, just guessing.

Every time I see this I think Lockdown. I really hope it's him. The vehicle looks very similar to his.

As long as he doesn't die, it better be Ratchet. And Hound isn't there because he's already been killed off. :lol: ..... I seriously hope not. :-(

The rally fighter is fitting for one of the dreds.

I hope the Decepticons have good color schemes this time around.

There was too much grey and black in the previous films.

Let's see some purple Decepticon insignia! :CON:

I'm by no means bashing those who actually have not saw the movies. I give them props for actually standing by their words. Its the ones who complain but still go see the movies and complain even more that bugs me. As for the Flat nose still being used in the UK I was completely unaware of that. That's awesome!
