    Although I like the SR-71 as Jetfire I wish that Locheed's Skunk Works made more than 3 YF-12 Blackbird Interceptors because, I think it would have made a sweeter Jetfire IMO

    I'm still leaning towards Wheelie but maybe, just maybe its Roller. That would be kind of a cool fanservice shout out.

    I posted this in the other thread about Wheels, but it bears repeating here:

    Again, just a rudimentary level of knowledge of how movies are made would be helpful to quell rumors such as these. In all likelihood, the RC truck in question is simply a reference point for the actors to follow visually. The CGI transformer that they are following will simply be added in over it later.

    It's just like how they used a cartoon Scooby head on a stick for actor reference in the Scooby Doo movies or how they used a stuffed Yoda for the Star Wars actors to know where to look when they were conversing with CGI Yoda. Only in this case, the RC truck is Shia and Megan's reference to know where to walk.

    C'mon people...think before you let your imaginations run wild.

    While that's true (I'm majoring in Video Production, and have taken a couple good film classes already), it would still be kinda funny to see that thing transform on the big screen.

    Just a movie question...

    If this is just a marker shouldn't it be blue? Usually when I see on set shots of cgi characters the actors are wearing those funky white, green, or blue bodysuits. Don't they usually do that to make it easier to remove the object from the final shot. I guess if the object is being replaced by a cgi character thats larger then then the marker it wouldn't mater
