    Hmmm...the hair/'stache makes me think Einstein/old guy (although I'm guessing that's fiber optic cable supposedly?), and it looks like he's got some kind of glasses.

    It's Wheeljack.

    It's kinda cool. Aside from the hair that is. There's gotta be a more robotic way of representing hair.

    Also, since those head on poles represent guides for where the actors are to look, it would seem he's kinda short, compared to Bumblebee.

    I guess Silverbolt.

    He's going to be another old fart TF that's going to turn into some high-end Cadillac concept car or whatever.

    Ugly face design. Not liking it.

    Have it be voiced by Christopher Lloyd, and have it say: "I WAS FROZEN...TODAY!" and I'll live with it.

    If people really don't like this, I'd suggest kicking up a big stink about it. Since they're still filming, the effects aren't finalised. It shouldn't be too late to change this.

    Interesting. Not a bad design, imho (keep in mind this is early, and for all we know it could be just a concept). The eyes remind me of Skids and Mudflap, and the overall theme seems to fit a movie-verse Wheeljack (maybe he's their grandfather?). Could also be Silverbolt, but that's less likely, imo.

    Definitely taking a wait-and-see approach to this. Way too early to judge it just yet.

    Looks like Sam was wrong. Einstein was right... because he was a Transformer!

    Is it just me or is this design very TF:A, just more "movie-verse?"
