    Same watermark as the Corvette designs...

    Interesting. The things on the back remind me of G1 Kickback.

    It does look like Barricade, almost exactly like him.

    It's looking like he scans a new disguise since the cat's outta the bag on his cop-car mode.

    Not too thrilled with..whatever is on top. :)  Hands are very much like Barricade's, as has been mentioned. Overall..decent, fits in good with the 1st movie characters, but I'm not blown away (unlike with the previous one).

    Ya know, I´m still surprised that a R8, being a German car is going to be a transformer.

    Indeed it is not. Barricade is totally badass..:D 

    On closer inspection, not only his hands are the same. Most of the legs is as well. Too bad we can't really see a head. Interesting.

    Holy shit!

    Yeah, that looks a lot like barricade but still has some changes, I really hope that's a new character.

    i cant see him well enough to tell if i like him, but i definitely think that it's barricade in a new alt form.

    also, the colors are all wrong.

    Looks a LOT like Barricade to me as well. That's the same thing I thought when I saw the first pics.

    If Bumblebee can update, I guess, so can he.

    EDIT: Come to think... in the first scene, according to the leaked info, aren't the Autobots and humans going AFTER the Audi R8? Could be that they're trying to take down the last 'con from movie 1.
