Not sure if I want to take the word of some lot attendant on the names, but good shots of the vehicles anyway...

Yea that thing probably isn't Sentinel Prime, since Sentinel Prime in the movie verse is ancient and probably dead, I wish Vangelus would combine all the rumoured names into one like he did with his scout Dead End review. :lol:

Personally I think that's Pyro/Spark, the alt-mode fits perfectly.

Cool if the fire truck was Ultra Magnus or even Thunderclash. But as long as it's a robot, it can be whoever it wants :lol:

my hopes are on ultra magnus but ill bet its inferno. although i do like sentinal prime i really dont want him in this movie. but then again animated blackout surprised the hell outta me so i could them paying back the animated guys with a little homage. as for the suv. thats a bigger question on my view. cuz it does look like a part of the new organzation that simmons belongs to. :BOT:

It would be nice if the two SUVs were Runabout & Runamuck...I really like how much love they got in the IDW series and would be cool to see them on screen.

It seems likely that the blue & white Optimus Prime duplicate with the car carrier trailer would be Ultra Magnus.

The Two Chevrolet Suburbans - I think one has a plate and the other doesn't, so you could distinguish between them in alt. mode...Loose, I know, but this is assuming they are most likely Twins (and probably the Decepticon Assassins we've been hearing about)

Sentinal Prime - Wasn't Optimus supposed to be 'the Last Prime' in the movie cannon? And I thought somebody already confirmed it was Inferno...!

Ah well, like always; we'll have to wait and see (it's actually good that you won't know things until the actual release...But I hope it doesn't confuse like ROTF did! I'm looking at you, Devastator/Constructicon Crew! :P)

I suspect that new Abadon Factory to be the Autobot Base. The Autobots are probably in hidding cause of the humans going insane and turning on them so they hide and make a new base.

I also suspect that they could disconnect from NEST and go on their own also.

I think that NEST is also seperated from the military now and is no longer a section of the military branch.

Sgt. Epps is now retired Epps also they were arguing so they must be some friction between them now.

That is not Setinel Prime that is more than likely a new movie-verse character such as Q or it could be a movie-verse character or even Inferno but that is not Setenel Prime.

Cant wait to find out who those 2 new decipticon trucks are.

This movie is all about fallout there is tensions betweens transformers and humans now so expect alot of riots and hating in TF 3.

I suspect TF 3 will also open up with OP narrating about current events once again but for once I would like to have the film open up with Megatron Narrating it from their perspectives would make more sense that way.

I dont know the full details of TF 3 but I got enough to understand the film in some capacity but the film is still devoloping so anything can be changed or added in between no and then.

I hope in TF 3 we will get to see Cybertron more finally it has been only seen briefly and that was just a flash back hologram of it I want to see what it looks like now.

I agree that we should remain partially sceptical,accept each apparent truth with only half an ear, as they say,

-that goes for the following as well, which has been typed up somewhere before and that I'm bringing across for contributions' sake:

"Nelson said the Fire Truck isn't Pyro, Inferno or Ultra Magnus.
He said fans will faint when they see who this is."

If it's Sentinel, I'm one of the people who guessed correctly (hurray!) and could see an older Prime fitting into the film line okay (last Prime subplot notwithstanding). I'm guessing he'll be a patient,humble type-magnificently wise in advice and in accepting the leadership of Optimus,tho far older and more seasoned,he won't flaunt it when he knows better.
I'll be pleased if he survives to make it into more films, and hope people who have asked for the twins to be killed off will change their minds now, as the Movie TF population, tho not a G1 Platoon-rags-of-a-company or Armada Strike-force-amasses-into-Battallion, could work well if allowed to evolve into a tribal format,(at least for a while in lieu of further progresion) in which the twins have a vital place alongside the elders.

Very simple as I see it...

Red Jeep we saw from before = Hot Rod
Big Red Fire Truck = Rodimus Prime

Why else would they have been so persistent that something obviously all jacked up for the movie wasn't (unless like someone said before "that it's Bay's golf cart", 'cause I can see that) unless they are trying to hide a character.
