    Although its not stated, three of his bikes are possibly the ones referenced as the Arcee motorcycles referred to in the TF2 callsheets.

    Plus, I doubt they'd be doing this if they were just being used by humans in the movie:

    Whoa, I do not envy this man. He must be under some heavy pressure! Anyway, I hope we will start to see some leaked designs fast. All these internet articles and gossip and rumours are making me mad!! :)

    Yea way too much work and way too many bikes for it not to be a Transformer in the movie. If all they were doing was one stunt or one shot they would have just gotten a few production bikes instead of spending all that.

    I agree! :D  I do hope though that she isn't killed off! I'm looking forward to seeing her design! :D 

    I wonder what paint job she will have, considering how much the article said the paint cost. Will it be purple, like the first movie design, or pink and white, like the original? Either, I hope we get more information on all the robots soon! :D

    She's gonna be pretty small, so she had better stay the hell away from any of the larger Decepticons or she'll be meeting Jazz.

    Well from what he said some of the bikes will meet quite a fiery demise... so I'm betting my previous theory (someone said in another thread that the three bikes were of different color) that there are actually three 'femmebots' who are simply repaints (the movie, if they stick to the script, will feature many battlescenes with lots of Bots) who look totally the same just in different color to save money. And yeah, I bet some of them will be killed off... most likely not Arcee but some other no-names.

    I agree completely! The less deaths the better! Not only do I vastly dislike seeing my favorite characters die, but also, why kill off a character when they could be used in future projects? In the cartoons and comics, everything just gets reset, but we only get one shot with a live-action movie! I know that Optimus and Bumblebee are safe, but the others I'll be worrying over until we get to see a copy of the script.

    I'll be hoping for everyone's survival, especially Arcee and the rumored Wheeljack! :D 

    Maybe they'll have her fight smaller characters like Frenzy was?

    Has RC been confirmed for this movie yet? because I have a sneaking suspicion this may turn out to be prowl.

    A call sheet for the movie that surfaced a week or two back (the link is on the main page post for this story) mentioned "Arcee Motorcycles".

    Cool!

    WORD! I'd also love to see some designs, even if they're fake, but I seriously doubt Bay's going to leak that stuff because of the fecal storm he got while making TF1.


    POSSIBLE SPOILER BELOW

    I also have a serious feeling that the Ice Cream Truck Transformer in the Steel Mill scene, which is referred to as, "The Twins" on the call sheet, may be Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. IF SO, I hope that that is the first earth vehicle they scan and not the only one. We'll see.

    Arcee

    I also hope that Arcee isn't killed off, as I'm looking forward to seeing her. You know another cool Female Bot (who didn't really transform) was a character named Beta who was in one of the last G1 episodes. I liked her character alot - she was fearless, strong, and had some mean archery skills! I wonder if anyone's kitbashed her into a figure? Anybody know?

    I thought he would made radical customs, but he only tweaks them enough to make then unique. I definately like that Arcee will be a unique bike but not too radical.

    Cool news. Interesting that he made three 'hero' & three 'stunt' bikes. Sounds like my initial theory of there being multiple characters might be right. Either that or she really is a combiner like some people were speculating... though I seriously hope not.

    I do wonder how much paint the bikes are going to have with the expense ($40,000 total for each bike with $10,000 of that going to each one's paint job). Sounds like it's going to be top notch paint though.
