    That guy was massive, and awesome. Too bad we didn't see the full sequence of the Wreckers taking him down.

    It was a cool and innovative design in a sea of generic protoforms. What more can be said?

    Yeah holy fuck, who is this guy? Such a cool design. Even the background robots have designs that could stand as a main character in anything else.

    He was definitely the garbage truck. I recognized green and white body armor and the pistons the trucks use to raise their bucket on his arms when I saw it in 3D.

    And I'm calling him Overhaul because he was originally a long haul twin.

    I wish we got a better look at him. I think he was only in the movie for a total of five seconds.
    A Cyberverse figure of him could be pretty cool.

    I never said we wouldn't get a toy of him. I'm just saying it's too bad we didn't see more of him.

    I saw the movie again today. I spotted him a few times, he actually does kind of look like the cloverfield monster for proportions..

    I think we will almost certainly get a toy of him, for a nameless Con he got at least 2 big close up shots and appeared a number of times.

    As for is he the garbage truck? I was kinda confused as well since his colour scheme matches perfectly with the garbage truck the Long Haul clone scans, but he is waaay to big to be a truck.

    Decepticons can never inflict even glancing damage on an Autobot unless they are given a name. Without that, it doesn't matter how huge, armored, or powerful they are, they'll be torn apart.

    It bugging me that the movies been out for a little while and we've yet to hear of any toys or concept art or anything for... whoever this guy is. He's got a distinctive bot mode and an actual alt mode, unlike most background bots. I don't suppose any of the supporting comics or novels have him? I mean, I'm sure we'll get a toy eventually, but not knowing ANYTHING about what's-his-name is aggravating.

    Is there at least fan art of him?

    I would have preferred a brand new design for that garbage truck. It was way to similar to Longhaul.

    One little thing's bothering me, how some are calling this guy the Long Haul clone...

    I didn't get a good chance to see what alt-mode kibble the Cloverfield guy had, but I'll believe that he had the garbage-truck kibble until I find official/unofficial images somewhere.

    And yes, that Long-Haul-Minus-the-arm-kibble did scan that garbage truck, plain as day, right in front of us.

    But the incredible difference in robot mode pretty well sells me that they're two seperate guys. Why would Mr. Long Haul clone scan his alt-mode, turn into it, than turn into a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ROBOT when he transforms back?

    Still, it's perfectly possible that they have the same alt mode. I'm sure there's tons of that model of garbage truck, especially within the same city. Even without that, they all came through the bridge in the same spot, maybe two guys scanned the same truck?
    But I cannot believe they're the same guy. Doesn't make sense to me.

    I really liked this guy's design, too bad he had so little screen time. But, oh yea I forgot...he's a Decepticon lol.
