While I still don't know if I like the look of the MechTech weapons...the fact that they are included in the movie makes them a lot less of a WTF idea...

Awesome! Glad we got to see Starscream, and Bumblebee's mechtech, which actually looks kind of cool. I was hoping to see what Megatron looked like though...

You get a brief glimpse of him in vehicle-attack mode in the new teaser trailer. Haven't seen any robot mode pictures yet.

We got to keep in mind that Megatron's new ID is probably supposed to be a secret.

I have a feeling the Wreckers are going to be very popular. The only pic of Leadfoot (aka the red one) in bot mode are from Toy Fair as a Cyberverse figure. I'm not sure if we got a pic of him, I know one is available on TFCC's members only page. It looks like he has a beard!

edit: apparently we did get a pic :P

Fantastic! Who was speaking at the beginning? Simmons? John Malkovich?

Loved the quick teases of the Wreckers! (Only natural to include them for the 500!)

"Wreck and rule!"

Most of this tv spot is left over clips form the Super Bowl trailer with some new bits, bumblebee in stealth mode and leadfoot driving around; but what MADE this trailer was Simmons voice over in the background. That single line gave me goosebumps and got me looking forward to the movie 5 times more than the Super Bowl trailer (which got me heavily excited anyways)

I mentioned that in my above post. He transformed simular to how he did in the DOTM video game trailer.

Not to mention his Speed Stars Stealth Force weapon mode. Gives those toys a little more legitimacy, though they really need to make them transformable into robots for me to care.

I love The Wreckers, but really, how could you not love NASCAR cars decked out in tons of guns and armour? Bumblebee's Mechtech mode isn't as bad as I expected from what I've saw of the toys, surprisingly. Truthfully though, Rosie seems to get less attractive every time I see her, which isn't making me too happy. I'd rather have bots then humans, but I'd prefer a female lead I found attractive.

I just saw the tail end of a commercial walking into the room. It was the same one, right?

Aw, you gotta be kidding me. The Mechtech's actually in the film? Crap. My OCD is gonna go nuts.

I'll end up buying the stupid figures now. >_<

Best timing goes to FOX Sports--Michael, Rosie, and Josh with the Wreckers as a backdrop give the command to start engines and the next thng we saw was this trailer. Really surprised that BB is going to have the speed stars stealth force weapons mode with the huge mechtech cannon on the roof. Who would have thought that toy was actually a DOTM spoiler? Now I have to buy that vehicle. I want Wreckers and voyager OP too really bad now! Wonder if the thing with all the tenticles is Soundwave?

Yeah I guess it probably is supposed to be secret, but you would think whoever is in charge of deciding on which transformers get shown would have figured out that everyone already knows who Megatron is and what his alt mode is. The same thing happened the last movie. I really don't see the point of hiding him , because I assume he is a secondary villian this time around anyways. They could at least give us some concept images :-(
