... Arcee will probably die in the first 20 minutes of ROTF. Think about it: The casting call for female motorcycle riders asked for only a day's work on the Bethlehem, PA set: source The only images we've ever seen of the Arcee bike(s) were from the Wal-Mart video, from the Bethlehem set in early June (Bay himself even mentions that they "crashed a bike" in the first shot): source we know that the action scenes filmed in Bethlehem, the only place we've ever actually seen Arcee, is the opening action scene of the film: source. The article about Will Kenefick, the builder of the Arcee bikes, mentions this: source So, they film the opening sequence in Bethlehem. Arcee is spotted. We find out that they may have crashed a bike (on purpose or by accident, we don't really know), and then Arcee is never seen again. It seems like such a waste. Will Kenefick put a huge amount of work into those bikes, are they really only going to be used in one action scene? If the bikes do combine to form Arcee, why do something so complicated for a character that may bite the dust in the opening sequence? If they did that to solve her height "problem" - why bother, if she might die in the first few minutes of the film? Any thoughts?
