    *SET PIC ON PAGE 2* More Movie Set Rumors (Get Your Salt)

    Thanks to Ren78 over at the Murphy Boards for finding this.

    Sallokin from the Neogaf message boards (No, I havn't heard of it either) throws a couple details our way in This Thread.

    And

    Take you're salt pills, and take this for what its worth.

    I wouldn't put any stock in the firetruck bit, because every source we've had so far- Quint at AICN, all the script reviews, the rumor from yesterday- has Optimus pegged as a truck, not of the fire variety.

    -edit-

    Awesome! And here's the pic!

    Inferno? No, then who? Inferno is the only character I know can be a fire truck.

    Maybe they intend to go back to their original idea of Ratchet being a firetruck in the movie?

    I'd rather see Ratchet as a firetruck than an ambulance. Better play value, less likely to shelfwarm. But he should be colored white if possible.

    Only one problem : Ratchet for a fire truck doesn't make ANY sense. RATCHET = fix things, like an ambulance/surgeon. Even a tow truck would make more sense.

    I wouldn't mind the fire truck to be Prime or Inferno.

    Prime as a fire truck COULD work.

    But Prime as a flat-cab semi WILL work.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Hmmm, I've already got a great Firetruck Prime (RiD). Then again, I've got a great semi Prime (LROP), and come this fall, I'll have a great COE semi Prime. I guess from a toy standpoint, I'm covered no matter what they do (took Hasbro long enough...should have hired Don years before they did).

    From a story standpoint, yes, the truck Prime is iconic, but a firetruck is more heroic. The only downside is that without mass shifting, a firetruck is likely to be obscenely larger than the car Autobots, whereas the cab of a truck would only be...well, not AS obscene.

    I think I actually like the idea of Bumblebee getting rebuilt after getting really messed up. Sounds like there would be more of the Transformers featured in the movie rather than the 30 percent figure that was in that old script. As long as Bumblebee actually talks (and not in "radio") it sounds better.

    If the alt modes really get changed around that heavily, the real losers will be Hasbro's design team.

    Hasbro is quite heavily involved with the movie designs.

    As far as Bumblemute goes, as long as he is repaired and can speak in the last act or so of the movie, I'm okay with it.

    Hmmm, sounding more and more like a movie with humans and some machines that happen to transform into robots. But really, I thought everyone (well murphy and bay anyways) had said that prime would be a truck. Afterall, they even had a truck at toyfair this year to depict prime.

    Cool, if Bumblebee does get rebuilt (which I hope he doesn't, the little sh*t should stay dead), it'll be like having two different robots in the movie (which means two different toys!)

    I'll believe it when I see it. Rumors....god I hate them. This maybe some people's bread and butter...but really...it's all hearsay. I could make up some rumors too...

    Yeah I was on the set and nobody saw me cause I wasn't suppose to be there...anyway...Optimus Prime is going to be a unicycle!! Megatron was there too...he's going to be a glass of water...with cool ice cubes that transform into his frozen gun!!

    Wake up people...get your heads out of the rumor mill.
