    From the Aliance #4 cover, we're treated with a group shot of the autobots for the film. There's the four originals from the first film and the newcomers...Sideswipe, the three Arcee bikes, a red and a green vehicle [Trax and Beat? am confused] and a seemingly purple car.

    Wasn't a blue car, similar in shape to the red\green vehicles, named Jolt as a FAB? Is that a toy-only design or am I missing something? Any clues on who the purple car is?

    The "purple" car is the Volt, I think it might just be the way the color comes off in the cover (people mistook it for purple when the first shots of it were seen on set as well). Or maybe the purple ended up swapped for the blue, I dunno.

    Blue Autobot car-chevy volt- character name: "Jolt"

    Despite the wal-mart exclusive movie jolt repaint of cybertron crosswise last year. Guess it was popular.

    As for the overarching question I guess here is the autobot team (on screen):

    -optimus prime
    -bumblebee
    -ironhide
    -ratchet
    -jolt
    -arcee
    -skids (thanks thundercrakah)
    -trax
    -sideswipe
    -jetfire (intentionally scratched decepticon emblem on the legend sold me on this idea)
    -springer (with a legend class figure he's sure to be in the film. Not just potential retooled incinerator though I would prefer a leader that could carry a deluxe or two from their vehicle modes. RID Magnus forever!)

    Trax is Mudflap from what I heard. Something about that being on the license plate...? Would fit the supposed hick appearance on the M&M wrapper, too.

    Because a lot of people instantly think of him when they see a compact red-ish colored car. Mudflap is the closest thing to a confirmed name we have so far. Not that it's been confirmed, just that it's the closest thing we have to an official confirmation. I trust FrankyWest, but at the same time I'm paranoid :D . Though at the same time the more orangery color the car actually is makes sense for a bot with the name Mudflap. The one thing I'm curious to see is how they spell the green cars name. It's usually Skids, but from what I can remember of the picture of the license plate, it was spelled Skidz. Though at the same time I wouldn't be surprised if that was just a little play on the name for the license plate.

    No, I'm must paranoid :D . Have a look at what I added after I initially posted. I have a bad habit of adding things after I initially submit a post, as I usually think of more to say after I've hit the submit button.

    Doesn't surprise me. If my memory is correct about the license plate, the spelling of it as Skidz does seam more like something just for the license plate. I might just spell it Skidz anyways, just for the fun of it :D

    I heard Springer turns up as a green camo paint plane (V-22 Osprey or C-17 Hercules?)

    Oh yeah, woot, first post

    Having a toy doesnt mean he's in the movie.

    However, keep this in mind. He's obviously one of the earlier figures of the line. He's a new mold (not a repaint or rerelease of an old mold). He's a legends class figure. Take all that into mind with the first movie line, and I'd say more likely than not he is in the film.

    All good points... I'll try to keep them in mind...
    But techinaly Springer is a recolour because he's based off TF1's Voyager Incinerator.

    With Springer, he was leaked along with Prime and Jetfire, meaning he could be a character, I also do distinctly remember reading that there was a 'camoflauged plane transformer', might of been empire, was definately on the news on here, sounds alot like Springer (Who else is thinking the US Armed Forces are bugging the writers to add a autobot as a US combat vehicle rather than have it as a decepticon?)
