The official Transformers Facebook page uploaded a couple of images from the Portland Rose Festival Starlight Parade, which featured Transformers: Age of Extinction Optimus Prime! Well, his truck mode, at least, courtesy of Western Star Trucks. Check out the shots mirrored below, including one of the amusing 'My other ride is a Dinobot' sticker.

The official Transformers: Age of Extinction Optimus Prime movie vehicle from Western Star Trucks made an appearance at last weekend’s Rose Festival Starlight Parade in Portland, OR.

I remember when this new alt mode was 1st revealed I thought it was a bit tacky due to the chrome and rounded body, as opposed to the really square edges on the Peterbilt (which I still prefer) but this kinda grew on me. So much so that I actually bought the leader class figure when it was released. Not the ugly First edition, but the Generations version, with the chrome. I keep it in truck mode on my desk, it actually looks cool. Will Western Star allow its logo to be used in the film, unlike Peterbilt back in 2007?

My guess would be that Western Star will be all over the chance to have their creation hyped and their logo hitting the big screen. For the first movie, Prime's alt mode was basically a used truck purchased by Paramount and overhauled by their team of mechanics/detailers/body-work guys. This version came direct from Western Star, fresh out of the factory built to custom specs. and like you, I despised this version at first but it has since started to grow on me. I'm actually considering picking up one of the toys for this if they happen to come out with a voyager version that I feel meets my standards.

Thanks to a tip by fellow Seibertron.com user KirbyForce1, we get shakey look at yet another TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction, featuring some shots of Bumblebee in his classic 1967 Camaro mode (the basis for the High Octane Deluxe figure) and some new lines by Mark Wahlberg's character Cade Yeager. Check it out embedded below!

Now put Wahlberg in Neeson's place as he speaks to the bad guys in this movie about letting his daugher, Tessa, go.

The PR department for this film is on top of their game, it seems. Not only did we report on a new ad, here, but now marlinfan1995 and Comic Book Movie (aka CBM) have provided links to two new ads as well! And that's not all! In the clip provided by OnFormers, we get to see that Kelsey Grammer stopped by Late Night with David Letterman to promote the film and brought along an exclusive clip to show off!

First up: CBM's offering which features a bit of dialogue between Attinger (Grammer) and Cade (Wahlburg) plus Optimus declaring that the rules have changed!

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/ ... /?a=101625


Up next: marlinfan1995's video, titled "Conversation"



And last, but not least, OnFormers which features a longer snippet of the Attinger/Cade discussion and take note of how dark it seems to be:

Is Jon Bailey doing the voice for the (Transformers A Michael Bay Film June 27th) segment? What epic justice that would be/is.

Now I'm starting to wonder. Are those Stinger/Pagani Huayra drones, or are they Chevy Trax drones? :-?
