Thanks to fellow Seibertronian and podcaster xRotorstormx, who resides in Michigan and owns her very own Bumblebee Camaro to blend in with the locals, we have some more images from the set and the pit-stops along 96. Including the already seen characters and vehicles, from Optimus Prime to Hound to Crosshairs and the generic military vehicles - plus the addition of a new brown MG car being towed around. My speculation engine suggests a Hopkins presence for an old British make of vehicles, but it's your turn to gives us some thoughts on this new possible Cybertronian. Take a look!

That is not totally out of the question, sadly.

And why do we need 4 shots of the same vehicle from the same distance and angle? 1 is enough.

We news what images we get. Sometimes the images are repeated, and the person newsing is tired and didn't catch that they were effectively the same.

Remember this rumor?

Three new Transformers characters will feature, with a generic British background/accent: The Creator, an Aston Martin Cogman, a Vespa Squeaks


We already got Squeaks, and that isn't an Aston Martin, so could this be the Creator if it's a Transformer at all?

It's a Fiat, not an MG. Italian, not British.

A few more pictures I was able to snap. Didn't have my camera on me unfortunately (went right from work) and they were not letting people get much closer because these trucks were all parked at a local business that they were utilizing.

In one of the previous shots, you can see them loading up a second Crosshairs into a car carrier. I had just pulled up as they were loading Bumblebee in (bee on the lower deck and Crosshairs on the top deck).

Second crosshairs hiding behind the trucking company's garage:

No worries. Growing up, we had several of each in my household.

Thought about it and I feel like my only grievance with the Hot Rod design is the minimal use of red and lack of use of yellow. Kinda the trademark of the character I feel. My issue is just with the coloration though. I just hope the characterization isn't like how he became in the original cartoon with the whole "lol, I destroyed a planet. Oh well! I'm still unsure of myself!" mindset he had. Simultaneously I hope he isn't shoe-horned in as a replacement for Optimus either, but I doubt that will happen again myself.

to summarize:

Onslaught: cool by me!

Hot Rod: ehhhhhh.... but if that is Hot Rod, then where is Drift? since it was thought that that car was Drift's new alt mode

Drift is a new Mercedes.

Hot Rod appears to be a Lamborghini or something else (the tiny badge on the chest). Same colors though...

I'm going to say that the old and rusted small van guy (can't remember the vehicle's name) with the large Decepticon logo might be referred to as "Breakdown", and this new vehicle reminds me a WHOLE LOT of Downshift.

Oh, I thought there was only 1 vehicle of that color. If there are 2 different ones now, it'll be fun to keep up with

And I now see why the movies stick with realistic colors and not use the G1 colors.


Just looks cheesy and dumb it's good work but it would not work in a movie.

Pretty much was I wanted to show. Some things just don't transition well.

Like I said it does look great not saying it's bad.


Just saying it might not look great onscreen in those colors in the same vein as how red used to be an awful color for filming things which was actually why they gave Prime flames back in 2007.

Following the reveal of Hot Rod for the new Transformers Movie, we bring to you our latest character reveal, that of Drift in his new paint scheme! Drift appears to be using the same robot mode as in Age of Extinction, but this time in a red paint scheme. This is significantly different from Hot Rod in that he is almost entirely red instead of just red highlights on a mostly black frame. Check out the new image below for the honorable warrior, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers news and galleries!
