Joblo.com, the website that previously reported rumors regarding the identities of several new characters to be included in Transformers 4, is now claiming to know the names of the two Auotbot vehicles that were revealed yesterday. According to their source the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse is Drift, and the 2014 Concept C7 Corvette Stingray is Slingshot. Drift would be somewhat consistent with their previous report that one of the characters was a "Samurai" looking to regain his honor by joining the Autobots. Slingshot would really be out of left field considering his previous portrayal as an Aerialbot with jet vehicle mode.

nelson, the infamous admin of Michael Bay's Shoot for the Edit forum, was quick to point out that production names do not always end up being final names:

I do hope the Bugatti is Blur, but Springer on the Corvette doesn't feel right. Tracks as the Corvette would work if it was blue with, the one place we need flames, on the hood. A green Tracks or Mirage is lame. That truck is super sweet looking as far as shape goes but the flames gots to go. I think its a load of scrap that red not "filming well" is an excuse. I see red all the time in movies on vehicles and other stuff that looks good to me.

Two problems.
1. Why is an aerialbot now a car?
2. Drift was not a Samurai as a decepticon.

And with that, I'm sold on the Bugatti being Drift. Excellent choice, and if these are confirmed, I am delighted that he retains his noble samurai-like personality.

He's probably still in the concept drawing stage.

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.


Dino looks awesome in DOTM though. Maybe red looks bad only in Michael Bay movies :P Inb4greenrodimus

That new prime looks good to me. All of that flame details probably won't make it to the toy, that's a lot of paint for one figure.
And I'm ok with those super coupes being new characters because that's what they said they was going to do.

Samurai Drift, sounds good. I hope that Bugatti becomes a leader class figure that would be :grin: or they could make it voyager size or even better make it a human alliance figure that came with a hubcap figure that fitted in the trunk or hood of the Bugatti.

New Idea: Car transformers with car transformers that fit inside them.

That Bugatti is just WoW. The fastest car in the world, a transformer :APPLAUSE:

did everyone somehow forget this guy from first film they have his name in subtitles at end film bonecrusher enrouteImage

first we should have knonw by now movie is differnt from g1 like armadar bonecrusher, rid scourge which was truck evil prime movie verse same tie in as armada, rid, energon, and other anime series ironhide red van in series hes balck truck in film not much complaint about his look same wih rachet, definatly almost maybe no negative response about bonecrusher being minesweeper in film.

i would have perfer drift is race car wing on back would be his sword if he gets one in film but i almost dont care what they look like as long i recognize them from film to comics, or anime series with there famous iconic weapons and look in movie.

wheelie and jazz glad bay did not choose make those characters rhyme in movei

Meh, these are production names. Names can change as well as alt. modes. Remember Scourge? Two completely different characters, both deserve lovin'.

I got to say I'm not a fan of curvy trucks. I prefer the stronger look that the Peterbilt had. But then again I didn't quite like the first promo pictures of TFP Breakdown 'cause they made his model look like a flat and empty base to me. After seeing him, though, I liked his character-model as a whole. So if they manage to give OP a fitting character model and promote his truck in the installment, then who knows, maybe...
Although to me Optimus is Optimus, no matter what they give him as an altmode (as long as it's a truck) Either way I find him awesome. So I say: bring it on!

But I do find that those flames are nice. So kill me if you want to.
You'll never shake me.

Oh we've learned alright. We've learned that the movie folks have a hard time getting names right, especially when it comes down to final names.

Well, it appears the flames are here to stay. Oh well, I'm used to it already. That truck is also a lot more... I dunno, 'trendy' looking, with all the curves and custom bits, but it could be cool.

I wonder if the 're-imagined' Autobots are just going to be the same guys with new alt modes.

I'm very reluctant to get into the next Bayverse toylines, but these are some nice alt modes to start with. And there's usually a place for Prime in my collection.

I kinda do hope the Bugatti is Blurr and not Drift. It fits Blurr more, being the fastest production car, and also the blue trim. Green Corvette, I have no idea. I hope it's a new character so I don't have to get used to green Hot Rod or something dumb like that.

The flames on old movie Prime didn't really work as Prime, but they made total sense as a custom big rig that you could easily find going down the road. People actually do like to make their trucks look like that.

But this? This is just f-ing STUPID. That truck is several steps beyond customized to the point of uselessness. Plus, he's a Western Star? Really? Nobody even knows what those are. And they're garbage. About the only thing I liked about movie Prime was that he was a Peterbilt. I don't really care for driving those, but they have the go-to iconic semi truck look. This looks like nothing. Its all big shine and spectacle with no discernible point or purpose, just like the idiot who bought it.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Go home Bay....your drunk. Leave Transformers alone already.

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.

Not digging the new Optimus. He's put on weight and pimped himself out with ridiculously extravagant trimmings. All he needs now is to start drinking excess amounts of Energon and take an unhealthy interest in 18 year old hatchbacks and we're dealing with 'Mid-life crisis' Optimus Prime.

Have to admit I'd be a touch impressed if the Veyron is indeed Drift and they'll be touching on his IDW origin story. We'd actually see a Transformer get some character development. So yeah, it's probably not Drift. ;)

Oh dear. He we go again. I could accept Prime going from a cab over truck to a long nose tractor but this? WTF is that? It looks more like Energon Rodimus! I was hoping we might see some vehicle modes that weren't either A - Absolutely ridiculous ( OP ) or B - adverts for car companies.

What about Warpath, Cosmos, Gears, Huffer, Trailbreaker, Hound, Ultra Magnus, Hoist, Grapple, Inferno, Pounce & Wingspan, Outback, Brawn, The Aerielbots, The Technobots, The Protectorbots - the list could go on and on. What is wrong with any of these characters instead of ANOTHER parade of boring but cool looking sportscars? - Oh yeah. They won't be as easy to tie into some lucrative sponsorship.

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.

The Vette is more wide open. Tracks maybe? Smokescreen's been a popular character lately. Perhaps Sunstreaker shows up at last? Outside chance it's green because that will assist with later CGI shenanigans?

Now gimme a Jeep named Hound.

It might be blurr since it has that hint of baby blue

It would actually suck if the veyron is drift because a veyron is all wheel drive and it can't drift lol. And it would be a bulky bot it's a very round car and its heavy that's why it needs 4 turbos and 1001 hp the hit 253mph. So as a Samurai IMO its not the best choice but we are talking bay here lol. Also I have to agree primes new look not that great and why still all the flames.

Thanks to Instagram user rezzieboi we have a few additional images of the Transformers 4 vehicles from the Navajo Tribal Park in Monument Valley filming. The first image reveals a previously unseen older truck very reminiscent to the design of G1 Optimus Prime with the recently revealed Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse in the foreground. According to rezzieboi the covered vehicle in the second image is Bumblebee, who has yet to revealed. The third and forth images give us additional looks at the new Optimus Prime truck mode.

So Slingshot is a car, and Grimlock is a truck?

Weird!

Optimus looks like the design from Transformers Prime a little. They should have really changed it up if they want to increase sales of toys...

I'm hoping for a Gavatron character. I'm thinking there is a possibility his toy might satisfy classics as well.

I would love all 5 dinos in the movie, to add to there popularity, so we get some classics toys as well.

I suspect that rusty old truck is probably just a rusty old truck. Would be a bit weird to have a rusty old truck bot in DotM then have another rusty old truck bot in the next movie(s).
On the other hand, we've had 4 different silver cars already.

Hmm.... :-? Well, i have no objection to the Veryon, or the Corvette. Both look good. But i have to say i'm very surprised that there using a $1,000,000 sports car as one of the alt modes. (well... Now that i think about it, they did use the original Camaro concept which was valued around $1.5 million. So I guess this isn't that big of a surprise)

As far as Prime's new alot mode. Its not bad, but its not great either.
Likes-
-Color choices
-new truck type
-Bigger, more bulkier stance.

Dislikes-
-Triple Chrome stack. At certain angles, it looks like its just one big smoke stack instead of three
-Buldge on the hood. The nose is tall enough. Didn't need to add to it.
-Mirrors. Really?? #-o Prime is 13 feet tall in truck mode and you add in some tiny ass mirrors meant for a Datsun 240Z?? :BANG_HEAD: Terrible. Just terrible. :SICK:

As for those complaining about them being to flashy and not "robots in disguise"... TF have always had some sort of flash to them. IN G1 Mirage was an F1 car. Jazz a Porche 953, Warpath a red Tank, Powerglide a red A-10 warthog, decepticon seekers were muli color F-15's, etc. TF: Energon brought Prime as a fire truck with giant folded wings and water cannon's on the side. Face it people, flash sells. And when all this is said and done, there summer movies designed to make money. Personally, i'd much rather look at a Green hopped up corvette over an 80's minivan any day.

The vehicles look cool but I am concerned about one thing in particular. The Optimus Prime truck is a custom, therefore actually seeing it on the road is nigh impossible unless you happen to live where they are filming. I don't know about the rest of you but growing up as a kid with Transformers, road trips were more fun if you could spot an autobot on the road. Seeing a yellow Volswagon bug meant Bumblebee was nearby. Happen to see a white Porsche, bet that was Jazz. It really is a nothing thing but custom vehicles for Transformers just take the fun out of it. :BOT:

As I stated earlier, G1 had quite a few exotic cars themselves. Mirage was an F1 car, Warpath a red tank, etc. Now fast forward to today, you c!n easily see about 10 yellow camaros a day, black Topkick trucks aren't all that unlikely as well. Check, it's not even uncommon to see a CH-53 helicopter fly over ( Blackout).

Sorry but this isn't the 80's and flashy sells. That's one thing I like about th movie alt modes. There unique.

Different continuity, different origins. Think of how Optimus acquired this universe's Matrix. He didn't have it on the fly in the beginning of the franchise.

Plus, those are names that haven't been used in the movie frachise, might as well make use out of them.

Not really. Visualizing a toy out of this, it would most likely have about the same amount of paint as the past movie Optimus Primes, whom also had flames on their chassis.

Samurai Drift, sounds good. I hope that Bugatti becomes a leader class figure that would be :grin: or they could make it voyager size or even better make it a human alliance figure that came with a hubcap figure that fitted in the trunk or hood of the Bugatti.


Didn't you know? Those spots are reserved for Bumblebee, since he's so popular. >:oP

I can see a Human Alliance coming out of this, but a straight up Voyager or Leader? That would wreck up the scale, if they decide to have scale as precedent. Now if he had been like a tank or larger, I'd agree with you.

New Idea: Car transformers with car transformers that fit inside them.


Carception.

No thanks. >:oP

Wikipedia isn't a very reliable source. Remember, people of questionable standing edit the thing like crazy (even though the staff is well known to fix any errors, deliberate or accidental). Have they cited their source?

I'm curious more than anything about the rusty old cab. Could have sworn Bay was above the use such vehicles as main cast, if the cab is destined to become an Autobot/Decepticon.

*whew* That took time to write all that. I do believe this is the longest post I've ever written. :shock:

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?!
