    Has there been ANY news on the evasive ice-cream truck? If this topic requires someone to post :horse: , then please close the thread. Ice-Cream truck-fueled discussion would be acceptable, though :)

    I thought the ice cream truck was the first alt-mode of Skids/Mudflap before he changed into the Trax/other car I can't remember the name of...

    Yeah, I thought that was probably the case too. I did do a little thinking though, and came to this conclusion: the Ice-Cream Truck doesn't have enough mass to eventually end up as two other cars. Granted, they are small cars, but it is also not a very large truck. I was looking at some set pictures, and I could swear there's a Decepticon sigil on the truck along with a motto a la Barricade.

    I DO find it strange how we have heard nothing more in regards to the Ice Cream truck for quite some time.

    I don't find it strange. They finished filming the scenes months ago - unless it's shown in a trailer or gets a toy I'm not expecting to find out anything until it's on-screen.

    Someone on these boards had a great suggestion for the ice cream truck.

    Its Ravage.

    God, I'd love it if that were true :D

    We haven't heard much about it because it's probably not in the movie for very long.

    idk I'm just speculating, though I thought I read that the Ice Cream Truck was miss information, but I can't remember where I read it now. Wouldn't surprise me though. Bay did say he was going to start rumors and do things to mess with the fans. So no Ice Cream truck in the movie would be a good way to do it since it's a 2 stroke kill. (1.) Pissing off all the fans who think an Ice Cream truck transformer would RUIN THE FRANCHISE FOREVER!!!!!! and (2.) It would really mess with the fans who were actually hoping for an Ice Cream Truck transformer.

    Bay said hackers broke into his computer and stuff during the first movie, I think he's got some snarky contempt for the fans in general, and since he did say he was going to do some things to mess with them, it wouldn't surprise me if this was one of them.

    I mean really, it can't possibly cost that much to buy up an old POS beat up Ice Cream truck and leave it around the set to 'accidently' get it's picture taken and 'leaked' onto the net. Really an old beat up truck like that would probably be very cheap. It's actually kinda brilliant, in an underhanded devious kind of way.

    We'll find out soon enough I suppose.

    That's what I think - it has been one big gag all along.

    And what about the photos and video of the Ice Cream truck splitting in two, like exactly what was mentioned on the leaked callsheet. The same callsheet that has had every part of it proven true via footage, photos, toys and reports.

    Bay rigs an expensive special effects shot of an ice cream truck splitting in half just for misinformation?

    No.

    Bay doesn't have to put out any misinformation (apart from that lame "Megatron is not in the movie" line). All he had to do was SAY there would be misinformation and let certain fans be paranoid about each thing that mistakenly leaks out.

    I think the Icecream truck was misinformation. In fact, I think that was the only piece of misinformation. Bay probably said "Take some photos of an icecream truck and get some footage of it, and let it leak out. Imagine those crazed fans rage at seeing a transformer that turns into an icecream truck."
