    Also not mentioned are the NEST H3T's that you can see in two of the photo's and the interior of the H3T where two of the pics were taken.

    Kind of suprised Hasbro didn't try to get them to change OP to a different truck. What are they going to sell now for the 2nd movie. The same toy? Change it up how if he looks the same in the movie. Same kind of goes for most of them. I think new vehicle modes for most of them for each movie would been a good idea.

    We've know about an ice cream truck Transformer for a while, it splits into twins

    Hasbro said that they'd like to keep the same toy so parent's won't have to buy them twice. What you're asking for is wallet suicide

    You didn't have to buy the Premiums, it was a final milking attempt from Hasbro before the movie line ended, and I think I read somewhere that the design team didn't get to work with the final character models so they tried to fix it with the Premiums

    Basically, the movie toys sold so well the stores wanted more and more.

    So Hasbro came up with a novel way to get them more - repaint the movie molds in more movie-accurate decos.

    I guess it worked.

    The Ice cream truck reminds me of Sweet Tooth on Twisted Metal.

    you notice Ironhide in the plane... makes me wonder if theres a sceen where they fly him over back to the area where Scorpy is to take care of him with a team consisting of army dudes being lead by Lenox... just a thought though... he did say it was all in "who" he worked with right? or something like that?

    Oh boy, that icecream truck is growing on me. Can't wait to find out which robots make the icecream truck, but it will likely be two new names we have never heard of before, instead of two well known Transformers.

    I'm still not feeling the ice cream truck, I honestly hope their characters are red shirts.

    they aren't... but the Ice Cream Truck mode is dropped in thsi scene....

    If my gut is right this is where the twins get their Beat and Trax modes after returning with Hide and the others from the China opening scene...

    Though this one will have less CGI than the other one......

    anyone else notice the icecream truck is on the same set as the chevy beat and chevy traxx. Could the icecream truck and the two other cars be seperate transformers???

    Maybe this is the scene where they split apart and form seperate cars or ....maybe not :) 

    of all the things about this movie so far I have to say I love the idea of the ice cream truck twins and I m even kinda hoping for the two small cars to be sideswipe and possibly sunstreaker. It would be nice to have some larger autobots though as im sure the decepticons arent getting any smaller in this one.

    I think the ice cream truck should just be one toy: movie Twin Twist. It fits.
