Seibertron.com member karellan has shared a photo with us. This picture was taken at the exact same location as this "Bayhem" video we reported earlier.

As you can see it shows a place-holder for a CGI effect which will be added later. It seems to resemble a leg with wheels on one side, if this is a leg it could be part of a huge robot which might be a combiner.

What ever it is we will keep you updated!

I would personally love a combiner with the stunticons (one of my favs) but I dont think that "leg" is one. If those are wheels you can see their scale to the wrecked taxis, it's way to big in comparison. If it is indeed a wheel-driven combiner part those wheels suggest maybe something like another devastator(long haul). Bay did reuse several "dead" deceptibots from 1-2 (blackout, bonecursher(he's in rotf), and maybe others). However if that is a part of Long Haul then most of it is missing as that piece seems way to small.

Or we could be looking at a new combiner bayverse style-whatever it is I absolutely love the movie figures so I am looking forward to it!

That almost looks like Prime's leg. Could that be a rough shape of a combined form with his trailer?

Giant leg is interesting, but I really want to know what's on the other side of that 'wall' attached to it.

Now this is me hoping with my fingers crossed, seeing that they showed the stunticons...that this is part of motormaster and the combined form with the other nascar vehicles...It would be cool to see a much awaited duel between ol' prime and motormaster...a fan boy can only wish :ic$: :ic$: :grin:

The tires on this TransFormer are way too big to be Primes.

Also, they said that they want Prime to have a more "heroic look". I know what that heroic look is. When Prime combines with his trailer, the trailer becomes Prime's cape.

Just kidding :P

But really, I think we're looking at a new TransFormer.

What do y0u get when you add 2+2?
No silly, it's not 4. It's Menasor. :P

Ha! I made a rhyme!

Seriously, if you add up 3 Stunticons you should also get combiner mode Menasor. Yea, I know, where's Motormaster and the other Stunticon? This is Bayformers after all. You'll never know what is different til the movie comes out.

I'm guessing the big blue thing is the cybertronian alt mode of whoever the main badbadguy is. Characters like The Fallen and Megatron always had cybertronian alt modes in the movies, and since this scene takes place near the end, the "big bad" is probably around somewhere. We saw what looked like Shockwave's head earlier, so maybe this is his alt mode.

And thanks to Dead Metal for hosting the pic properly.

A CGI placeholder would only be necessary if an actor were directly in contact with the object/character the placeholder represents, right? I remember seeing the scene from the ROTF Special Features disc where Sam climbs up on top of Prime's chest and hits him w/ the Matrix, it it was a similar blue placeholder he was climbing on IIRC. Hmmm.

I was thinking Menasor too once I saw the Stunticons. This confirms it. :KREMZEEK:

Hi, long time lurker, first time poster. Everyone saying that there are only three Stunticons, go check the first set of Chicago pictures- there is a black flatnose truck in two of them that looks exactly like G1 Motormaster (although I can't see a trailer). The tyres here are the same size as an 18wheeler. I call that this is Motormaster making up the leg of Menasor.

[color=#0000FF]Not to say they couldn't be 18-wheeler wheels... the so-called wheels in the pic are even too big for those. 18-wheeler wheels and tires only come up to around your mid-section of your body... the so-called wheels in the pic are almost the size of an entire human...

Also, wasn't it confirmed that the NASCAR's were NOT Stunticons and even appear to be part of the Autobots based on their driving in filming. [/color]

Look at it that the nearest part to the camera is the back end of a truck. Can anyone else see the trailer hitch and the tailgate etc. To me it looks like a truck going right to left and the Cab seems to be twisting into mush.

But as has been said they usually use these place holders when the cast are interacting. Dont know if they would do that mid-transform.

Admittedly on first glance i went '*gasp* Roller!!!'

I'd have to agree.

But what I want to know is if that orange forklift is spoons.

I reckon misinformation. It's a bit hard to tell just from the filming, considering editing that has to take place as well as doctoring of footage (it's not uncommon to shoot car chases/high speed shots at a different frame rate and alter it).

My guess in a single word: Stunticons :grin:

Those round things on this place holder are about 5X bigger than wheels/tires. If this were for a Stunticon combiner, I doubt one alone would make up its foot.
