*fangasm* Is That BRAWN?!?

There's a NEST vehicle in the background of one of those photos that looks just like the Brawn toy sans gatling.

I dun see Brawn But that would be cool

That superfund decepticon looks beast :P

I Hope that Ferrari is Hot Rod/Rodimus. Im not a fan of him, but we don't need another Generic Fail like the twins.

I have a new theory about that red Ferrari: Cliffjumper. That would explain why ol Cliffy has popped up in the new TF: Prime- seemingly kind of randomly. The rest of the TF Prime cast is in the live action movies already...Cliffy was the exception. (If i missed anyone else, my bad) Plus, having the Rock voice him is kinda a big deal for that character, too, as if they were trying to make him stand out more.

Just my theory.

Could the faction symbols be getting any more obvious? Way to continue the "hide in plain sight" motif, guys.

I'm definitely liking what I'm seeing. Prime's trailer looks great, Ratchet's new design is a great improvement, and the mystery of the Ferrari still has me guessing. I can't wait until the bot modes start rolling out.

The red ferrari was confirmed to be "Rush" a few months ago

No, the red Ferrari is not Rush. Rush was the name of the photo with the Ferrari but that was because the photo was taken on Rush street. Nelson himself cleared that. The ferrari will be either hot rod, clifjumper or sunstreaker (although the different color).

I did see Brawn, not on these but on the ones at unicron.com. Hopefully he'll be in the film. That'd be awesome. Hopefully the red Ferrari will be Hot Rod. Not a huge fan of Hot Rod, but it'd be cool if there was some sort of tension between him and Prime because he's sort of a lose cannon. :BOT:

Like I said earlier, I'm going with Cliffjumper just on the fact that he suddenly popped up in the Transformers: Prime series- I think it's to build character interest.

It looks like Brawn but it's just a NEST vehicle. They used the same in ROTF.

Holy slag...everything's starting to fall in to place!

My speculations:
*Brawn is either definitly the NEST vehicle or it's just a generic NEST armored vehicle.
*Ferrari 448 is probably Cliffjumper; it would make sense.
*How hasn't anyone else made this connection yet? Armored superfuund Decepticon? Banking?! SWINDLE???

:APPLAUSE:

Pfft, don't pretend no one's said that already, :lol: I've been holding out hope since we've seen it for it to be Swindle, and I'm pretty sure someone else brought it up before me too. :P Though it wasn't popular...I don't think anyone paid much attention to that truck when we first saw it. There were so many possible TF alt-modes on set at the time though that's it's easy to see it getting overlooked/forgotten about during posts. I'm so happy to see it's in Detroit too!

I'm still hanging onto to it being Swindle. I'd rather not have it be some of the other names I've heard for it. Plus Swindle always adds an instant layer of fun whenever he's involved, ha ha. He doesn't need a ton of character development for the idea to get across to film goers. ;)

OK. I would love it If the "Future of Investing" Decepticon turned out to be Swindle.

But I think that level of wit is beyond the movie series.

Be nice if they were tring to be current and banking on the sucess of Wall Street 2 "Transformers 3: The Ponzi Scheme of the Fallen"

Also.

I hope the Stella truck behind him is a Bot too!!!!!!!!

Still don't like Ratchet's new look, but the rest looks great.

If the Ferrari isn't Hot Rod but some character they just made up they are even dumber than i thought. There are so many G1 characters they can use why make up your own.

I agree with earlier posts that it will be Cliffjumper, and I hope that is the case. I seriously doubt the Ferrari alt mode is going to be wasted of a no-name Autobot.

I feel so sorry for Ratchet. I keep seeing images with him with the last film and now this one, all I see are Voyager and now Deluxe repaints for him in the same form, nothing near impressive. Miss the Marvel days when he had more focus I suppose. Plus, for the record, I'm diehard partial to white & red which, despite the unimpressive mold, is the reason I bought rescue Ratchet for the first film's toyline.

Anyway, saw him in the picture, came to mind.
