Prime finally gets his trailer! Wonder what's inside?! Also, kinda looks like a Transformers fused with a Sprint cup car in the 48... Wonder what/who that is???

That Nascar is definatly overloaded with weaponry, if it`s not a Decepticon then it must be Overload :P , ussually I don`t like these kind of cars but that looks awesome!
By the way is that the new Mudflap in the background?

Very cool! Primes trailer is exactly how i pictured it. Though i think it would look better if the trailer wheels had fenders. Hopfully the trailer has a signifcant part and not just a prop he tows around for a scene or two. At least we should get a cool toy out of it!

The Battle Machines nasacr is rather interesting. Let the speculating begin who that is going to be.

Love the new Ratchet! Looks like he has a good sequence here! :D

And what the deuce is that Death Race-esque...race-car? :???:

Can't imagine they would do the trailer with leader prime. That would probably put it in supreme class or something. They should have the trailer with voyager prime no problem.

Wow they actually did a good job on primes trailer im shocked. The sprint cup car looks awesome, first thing i thought of was Twisted Metal. Id like to know who the ferrari is, it cant be Sideswipe since hes already in the movies and Bay probably wont give him a new alt mode to make the character right. And theres no flames on it so it cant be Hot Rod. But then again it is the movieverse where they dont give a rats ass about the characters unless they are called Optimus Prime.

I think this turned out to be fan art but if Prime does look like this in the movie, I will be happy. Also, remember how they said Prime would look different in the third movie, I think we know why they said that.

I'll throw in my 2cents...I think the trailer is probably G1 style as in (has medic bay with Roller), and the Nascar might be a Stunticon. Might be a reason they threw in the trailer to go up against Motormaster. And did anyone else that drives trucks notice how the dude took the corner wrong and damn near if not did...scrape the side of that pole?

I won't be the least bit shocked if that ferrari is changed to another color in editing given bay's hatred of red. I got used to the movie colors but if this car stays red after we got a silver sideswipe.... :BANG_HEAD:

I have... no idea whatsoever. BUT, emphasis on BUT, it's a possibility. It's a difficult responsibility.... Oh crap, not that song, I just got it out of my head!!! :BOOM:

Another wild guess could be Hot Shot. He's a hot looking racer, and the shot part... well, you get the idea. :lol:

HO. LEE. CRAP.

Prime got his trailer?

A race car armed to the teeth?

Wow.

If the fans complain about Prime's trailer (and you know they will) they deserve to be drummed out of the fandom in a heartbeat. If this doesn't please you, then honestly, you're whining and you SUCK.

Some of the complaints about the previous movies were legit, but if you can look at this and say they're not trying hard enough, or that the trailer sucks, you fail. Hard.

You = Failure.

Seriously. This is incredible and I think Bay has definitely outdone himself to cater to the fans. If this doesn't prove that people do listen to us, nothing will.

Now, how will they make it in toy form? Will you need to buy Optimus and the trailer separately? Will you need to buy it only in Voyager form? (I hope not) Or will they not release it in toy form at all? Plus, what will it do in the movie? Battle platform? N.E.S.T. mobile station?

I'm stunned. I'm not sure who the racecar is, and I don't know who the red car is, but it looks cool. Really, really cool.

And with the way this is shaping up, they need to make another sequel if 3 does well, not wrap it up. The movies are just now getting good, don't save the best for last, take the best and carry on with it.

>_< Oooh. That's just bad.

EDIT: Watched the video clip in it's entirety. That bit of filming is from the race part of the script. That explains the race car as well. And now that I've had a good look at the car, I do think it could actually be Lockdown. I would hope it's cool, who or whatever it is, but it looks good if nothing else.

They will, you know they will. I know sure as hell people are gonna complain and whine. If the trailer disapears when Optimus tramsforms people are going to be complaining about plotholes and crap like that. If the trailer doesnt dissapear, people are going to complain about the movie not being G1 enough, and Bay "ruining the franchise for ever" just because the damn trailer doesnt dissapear. And if Optimu combines with the trailer people are going to complain about Bay ruining the entire franchise forever again.

I'm with you guys. I'm really liking the trailer, and I particularly don't care what it does in the movie; as long as it's G1 related and is somewhat of a homage. Make of that what you will, Seibertronians, either you're with me, or you just hate my guts and want to tear me limb from limb. Although, I don't agree that the race car is Lockdown. Not spiky enough... :lol:

It looks like an Autobot to me. Maybe Mirage. He was a race car after all. But he was a different type of race car that I wont mention because I dont know shit about cars and I dont want to embarass myself over the internet so that the internet police will come to my house and gun me down for getting a car model wrong.

MIRAGE OF COURSE!!! I forgot all about him! That is my final guess. So far, we have these to think of;

*Smokescreen = The car is VERY loosely based off the Alternators version of our patriotic-colored Transformer.

*Hot Shot = Well, just look at the car. He's one hell of a Hot Rod (pun intended), and he's covered in guns.

*Mirage = He was a Formula One racer in the Classics line (pretty sure), and his original incarnation was that also of a racer.

And as for the Ferrari, only one guess comes to my mind when I typed this up;

HOT ROD.

Or, if possibly, Rodimus, if they don't have the trademark for him. I'll keep up with the evidence.

Posted by The_Cybertronian_Emperor on July 10th, 2010 @ 3:25pm CDT
At first I thought maybe Mirage, but Mirage was all about stealth and not full out assault... that might scratch his paint job.

Then after reading all the comments, it very well COULD be Lockdown, since the weapons and mods don't look integrated, but rather added on... just like Lockdown scalping upgrades from his victims.

But then after seeing the pic of the 88 car, I have another suggestion if both of these cars turn out to be Decepticons... Runabout and Runamuck...

I'd like to think that they're going to be Decepticons because I don't know of ANY Autobot cars so outwardly armed to the teeth.

If they are Autobots then who knows, but personally I would LOVE to see more Decepticon cars. I mean, we've only gotten Barricade and BARELY got Sideways (I'm only counting onscreen appearances, not repaints) and I think we could use a few Decepticon cars to bee-otch slap Bumblebee around. Who's with me?

Y'know, seeing this really ticks me off...

What? No not the trailer! The trailer is fine. Heck it's probably the closest thing to a G1 homage Micheal Bay has ever done.

What ticks me off is seeing people getting hyped for a movie directed by a hack.

Especially if the reason they're getting hyped is because of the trailer.
It's about as stupid as being hyped when Micheal said he would put the theme back in the second movie.

Mirage was a Formula-1 race car.
If anyone can't figure that out then I'd have to assume they know very little about Transformers in general.

And for anyone else debating this. It's Smokescreen. 48=38 in Micheal Bay's book.

Hah! Good luck with that! I just can't see Hasbro chroming an entire trailer. Let alone even a piece of it. No. We're going to see matte everything on the trailer, if it becomes a toy. ROTF Optimus doesn't even have chrome, nor does his Voyager counterparts.

In fact, even the first TakaraTomy Optimus was matte.

Unless Hasbro wants this movie series to go out with a bang and they decide to give it to us for one last hurrah, I doubt we'll see chrome anything on any of these guys.

I still want to know how they're going to sell it if it does become a toy. If they sell the trailer separately, I doubt it'll sell well, unless it does some sweet, sweet $#!7, or they'll put it with a redecoed, maybe remolded Leader Class Prime, but then he'd be friggin' expensive.

Or...the trailer will do nothing but look pretty, or it'll be cardboard like the Masterpiece's was in the beginning. =\

That is one big ass f*king awesome som' biscuit eating fudge ball! That is AWSUM no, its beyond AWSUM its SUPROMEGAAWSUM! ZOMGWTFBBQSTYLEBEASTAWSUMNESS!!! Thats my word to describe how awesome that car is! Remember it! Next time you go in the dictionary to look up ZOMGWTFBQSTYLEBEASTAWSUMNESS you will see a picture of this car.

I would say its probobly Sideways, but he died in ROTF. But I think its definately an Atuobot.

Or possibly a Voyager put at a Leader price point.

Though I wouldn't mind paying extra for a Leader Prime AND Trailer, provided it does more than have a freaking voicebox!

I really can't imagine Hasbro just putting out a trailer that does nothing. But hey, they're likely to prove me wrong.

doint know about fans im surprised no shocked to see priem with trailer bay said himself in the first film he didd not want prime to have trailer it wouldnt be realistic enough if he trasnformed where would the trailer go, and how would it be infused into the film combined mode i would like to see same thing happen with nascar cars i hate that sport i dont even call racing sport but i do like the look of these cars.

Hopfully the trailer has a signifcant part and not just a prop he tows around for a scene or two. At least we should get a cool toy out of it!


oh man imagine the price tag on prime now some poeple thought leader prime was expensive for going around 50 to 60 dollars what will the price be on prime now if leader prime gets released with trailer inculded does anyone here think hasbro will release prime trailer sepratly ill be surpriesd if they do but togeather almost or close the that big combiner supreme class devastatr maybe little more.


if hes in it what will roller look likie in the film will be baler roller or drone roller like g1 cartoon episode


trailer rocks nut keep in mind this movie verse transformers
ironhide is black truck in thise series no where near close to g1 ironhide rachet very close i say but colors are wrong im glad anyway white hummer wouldnt look right if you asked bumblebee camero with stripes, wing on the back slightly differnt, wheelie no rhyming example ( g1 blaster, jazz, gijoe roadblock ) but horny thank you bay, freanzy not part of soundwave but part of barricade, bonecrusher not constructicon but by himself fits good but no where near close to his g1 counter part not trying to start fight here but lets not jump to conclusion who these new cars are and allinece they have in this film could be anyone autobot or decepticon alike


megatron not even close to g1 accuarcy but g2 accurate in revenge of the fallen, arcee perfect example she not car shes 3 bikes

MIRAGE OF COURSE!!! I forgot all about him! That is my final guess. So far, we have these to think of;

*Smokescreen = The car is VERY loosely based off the Alternators version of our patriotic-colored Transformer.

*Hot Shot = Well, just look at the car. He's one hell of a Hot Rod (pun intended), and he's covered in guns.

*Mirage = He was a Formula One racer in the Classics line (pretty sure), and his original incarnation was that also of a racer.

And as for the Ferrari, only one guess comes to my mind when I typed this up;

HOT ROD.

Yay, someone finally sees the light!!!

...Well, my version of the light, I mean. :lol:

Again, my list for possible characters for this guy is...

*Smokescreen
*Hot Shot
*Mirage

And the Ferrari...

*Hot Rod/Rodimus

That's all I have left to say in this post. Unless I change my mind. Ha, get it, change my mind? And mind is part of my name, as I can easily manipulate every one of your insignificant brains! Oh crap, just revealed my ultimate plan for world domination... Megatron is NOT gonna be happy with me when he reads this post... :-s

They've done it before!

I still want to know how they're going to sell it if it does become a toy. If they sell the trailer separately, I doubt it'll sell well, unless it does some sweet, sweet $#!7, or they'll put it with a redecoed, maybe remolded Leader Class Prime, but then he'd be friggin' expensive.


Or possibly a Voyager put at a Leader price point.

Though I wouldn't mind paying extra for a Leader Prime AND Trailer, provided it does more than have a freaking voicebox!

I really can't imagine Hasbro just putting out a trailer that does nothing. But hey, they're likely to prove me wrong.


Oh sure, they've chromed before, but they haven't since. Or at least not to such an extent. If they were going to chrome anything, I'd have thought it would've been Leader Class Prime. He's rife with pieces of his body that just yell "I'm a chrome magnet!" I sincerely doubt they'll put a chrome trailer out.

And I'd like a full sized trailer to go with my Leader Class. I don't want the Voyager, honestly.

And I still won't be surprised if it's just a piece of foldable cardboard. lol

Thats my word to describe how awesome that car is! Remember it! Next time you go in the dictionary to look up ZOMGWTFBQSTYLEBEASTAWSUMNESS you will see a picture of this car.

I would say its probobly Sideways, but he died in ROTF. But I think its definately an Atuobot.


Could somebody mirror that pic? I can't access TFW anymore and I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't see it.

WOW !!! Optimus gets a trailer finally ??? This movie is going to be big ??? I hope we see Roller. I like the Ferarri but the rece car looks stupid with all the guns. Here in Miami, were not too big on NASCAR. I guess its a regional thing...

I'm glad to see a trailer for Prime! Like others have said: hopefully it's more than just a 'prop'.

Knowing Micheal Bay, the trailer will probably be in the movie for about 2 minutes. Then it's gonna blow up real good.
