The rwsentosa YouTube account has posted a short video introducing fans to EVAC, a character that has been developed for Transformers: The Ride. The ride will debut at Universal Studios Singapore on December 3rd, American fans can look forward to Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood in the Spring of 2012. Check out the video embedded below.


EVAC is a new recruit to the AUTOBOT team stationed on Earth and has never been in combat with DECEPTICONS before -- a bond he shares with the latest human recruits of NEST, right here at Universal Studios Singapore.

Created specially for this ride, EVAC is a Stealth Transport Bot, who is as agile and fast as they come. Built to handle rough combat situations, EVAC is eager to prove himself in battle. His specialty is transporting high‐level personnel and classified materials at hyper speeds.

The world's first TRANSFORMERS ride will open at Universal Studios Singapore on 3 December 2011.

Looks like a potential ton of fun. Hopefully it opens at both US Universal Studios... too bad it didn't open in Florida first, I'm probably going there next year.

A character form the lore. Um, yeah, sure. Cuz Movie Ride Evac totally existed before now in previous fiction before now. :roll:

Look, just because two bots share the same name doesn't make them the same person. Cybertron Evac and Movie Evac definitely aren't the same guy, and neither is Movie Ride Evac.

Specifically, Ride Evac has never seen combat before, while both Cybertron and Movie Evac have.

You can see that they simply modded Roadbuster's character model into Evac (specifically the legs, chest and lower arms remain virtually untouched), but he's still pretty cool.

Theme park enthusiast site Screamscape has shared some new images of Transformers: The Ride from Universal Studios Singapore. These images reveal a lot of the behind the scenes work that has been leading up to the December 3rd opening. We get a look at the gift shop stocked with Transformers toys and the Starbot Café dining area. Transformers: The Ride will be coming to Universal Studios Hollywood in the Spring of 2012. Check out the images mirrored below.

I don't understand why their making such a big fuss about these TF rides that are gonna open up worldwide.

By my standards,this isn't a ride. it's waiting in line a hour+. then you go into a movie theathre,sit down & have your movie theathre seat rock back & forth while you watch a 3-D Movie.

I've personally had a few bad experiences in various amusement parks in america. going to these amusement parks movie theathre 3-D Movie rides where the seat rocks back & forth. The only reasons we went on these movie theathre rides where the theathre seats rock back & forth rides is because my older cousin took us to the amusement park & he paid for everything. my older cousin is a star trek fan & also loves the broadway type live shows.

While your waiting in line in the 90 degrees plus summer weather,getting sun burned & sweating like a pig. the line progresses,you get to see walls painted or designed in the theme of the movie.

IMHO,This isn't a ride in a amusement park. by my standards,a ride in a amusement park is a ROLLERCOASTER ride. I wouldn't even label this as a kids ride,as their is zero danger of getting hurt & zero danger of getting nauseous or throwing up on the ride or after the ride is over.

These types of movie theathre rides where the theathre seats rocks back & forth are aimed at younger kids who are not older enough nor tall enough to ride the roller coasters.

Sometimes,space is limited in these amusement parks. So in order to create more new rides,they get rid of older rides. most of the time a old ride is torn down & a newer ride gets built in it's location. depending on the budget,they might keep some stuff from the older ride & intergrate it into the newer ride.

True, but I haven't heard of an 'Alien Ride'! :P

Yeah, but it looks like only modern stuff for sale. Too bad they can't make it like BotCon and have various vendors take turns selling vintage products there. ;)

Hey, one can dream. :lol:

Are you talking about where you walk in a room and sit down with a group of people and the whole thing rocks? If so, I don't think this is that - it seems to be taking after the far more popular ride type that is represented by the likes of DL Haunted Mansion (but more movement), US IoA Spiderman (but, again, more movement), and which atm seems to be best represented by US IoA Harry Potter area's "Forbidden Journey" ride. That is - you're strapped to a thing like a roller coaster cart, but sideways like aforementioned Haunted Mansion (but separate seats, not a bench). It's on rails like a roller coaster (and rotates and has the ability to move you like one), and varies from 3D sets to screens, and everything in between (4D elements like spraying water, heat from fire, smells, etc.)
No, it often doesn't get anywhere near the speed of a roller coaster, but that's not it's goal. Speed and g's are a roller coaster's job. It's indoors, and the goal is to immerse you in the experience as you're taken along for the ride.
I personally loved what they did with the Harry Potter ride and think that even if this TF ride were a step back to the spiderman or Haunted Mansion tech (which it highly likely won't be due to amusement parks all trying to outdo and/or keep up with each other), it would still be good, and probably even good for the franchise.
A roller coaster TF ride would most likely be an existing roller coaster that gets new tf themed carts and tf themed area, but the roller coaster remains much the same. It tells far less story, and is nothing more than an adrenaline rush themed to whatever the park owners think will draw in the crowds. This different type of ride can still give some rush, but not so much from physical movement, and more from what is actually going on around the rider. Like Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Carribbean, and all the countless other rides of that type, but even more intimate because no one is in front of you to block you from the action, and you may not even be able to see or reach to who ever may be next to you. Unless they're screaming at the top of their lungs...hehehe.
Anyway, people are far more impacted, memory-wise by these types of rides because it gives them things to remember that are more precise than "a double loop followed by a corkscrew!" Which is often more difficult for people to recall the experience of.
Basically, this ride'll stick with 'em and they'll sell more toys, both in the gift shop there, but hasbro will likely benefit a little outside of it too for anyone who ends up looking more into the brand because of it.

While the idea seems to have merit.

I can easily picture that eccentric/overly obbessive guy who owns the toy shop from that cartoon series called "Fan boy & chum chum." where the owner keeps watching the customers,only wants to sell his toys to who he thinks should own them & doesn't want his stuff to get damaged by customers. even going the extra mile to throw people out of the store.

Whaaa!!!. Just when I'm about to leave the Singapore. Hope I could check this out next year. This is great. Sci-Fi City's been in a rut for quite some time now in my opinion.

It wasn't. That's new footage created specifically for the ride. The ride is going to have its own story with its own footage.

Notice that Megs is in his ROTF body. If this is gonna take place int he movie timeline, it'll likely take place between movies 2 and 3.

Actually, I saw chains on him. Only meaning that this is him in his DOTM body.

Maybe this is just a bridge version where Megs comes back to life for TF4? (Please?)

On closer examination, you're right. The "claw" on his right arm threw me off. :oops: (Why does he even have that claw?)

Still, it'll probably take place between ROTF and DOTM since the Cons are no longer interested in the AllSpark by the time of DOTM, whereas they still showed interest in it during post-ROTF/pre-DOTM material.

And, you know, all the Cons were killed in DOTM. ;)
