    Just seen a tank being brought on base on the back of a semi. WOW!! if this is megatron does he look awsome. I don't know if i can get picks now. when i went to lunch he was coming in the gate. Wish i had my camera with me at the time.

    But i would hate to "spoil" a good thing like Michael Bay said.

    I will say that the tank looks like the 2nd gen. megatron

    Personally I don't think any of the Autobots or Decepticons will be "live" vehicles...more like CGI'd into the movie later. Right now he's just filming all the military scenes. But one never knows right?

    just found it strange that they would bring this tank on that doesn't really look like your typical "american" tank

    i mean this thing looks mean a turret on top of a turret and armor all along the edge all diff angles, also a crazy front end to it also

    There is a tank Decepticon character, but most info we have heard lately, has mentioned that Megs is a non-earth jet. Any markings at all?

    the front page shows that both might be tanks but megatron is unconfirmed right now. I just think it would be better to have megatron as the tank and would die to see devestator or devastator (as it should be spelled but whos being technical here?) as the constructicons.

    but on another note i think it would rock to see a C-5 Galaxy as Omega Sup.

    That is most certainly a mock up tank. Judging by the two barrels on the back, it's built off of some old Russian tank. I t probably runs and all, but it's just a lot of sheet metal, on top of an existing tank. The rest of it looks like some bizarre cross between a Merkava, and Renegade Legion grav tank.

    I would deffinitely buy a toy of that, especially if it turns into a cool looking robot. I love that sub turret, in place of the cupola.

    live props are still require, for close ups and actor to interact with.

    like in SW1:TPM, they even used scaled diorama's of pod racing arena/circuit, still, in this day and age for the certain shoots.

    yeah, but SC&tWoT was done on the cheap.

    also, the noir visual style masked the mediocre CGI.

    and the fact that the filmmaker had intended initially to to the entire thing totally CG.

    On the side of the tank in that picture, what is that lumpy fort of shape, look's sort of like an insignia.
    Or a security sign posted on the side.
    Either way, that's an awesome tank,
    I'm with Greyryder , I'd buy a toy of it if it turns into a cool robot!

    And the writing above, with the mustang having a part in destroying the old Camaro, sounds like Brawl (using old placeholder name), may be more than a, background character, like the Decepticons seem to be.

    Also mentioned, the Tank would be blown up, perhaps that means if it is a robot, It'll get killed off near the end.
