    Makes the Bumblebee car look unimaginative.

    Hmm, I was just wondering the other day if they still make Saabs...

    Nice looking car. I'd be down with it being Wheeljack in TF2.

    I'm drooling. ^^ Not so much for Wheeljack being in the movie but for that car. XD
    Thanks for the info. Now, ¿where are the robot concepts? :(

    Anyone else see the date of the original story?

    I'd take this one with a large pinch of sodium chloride.

    Watching the video that they reference with Eric Geers, it definately looks like the SAAB Aero-X part is confirmed. Around the 2:25 mark, he talks about how they just got done talking to Hollywood producers and signing on and getting the Aero-X into one of their upcoming big movies.

    I'm bound to rather believe the Wheeljack part of it, although we're far short on confirmation.

    The more I read it combined with the original posting date (April 1), the less I actually believe it. This is the part that makes me think it's just an April Fools post:

    Wait wait, the Saab Aero X is being used in the Gi joe movie too, it was shown as one of the movie propos, althoug we haven't seen any scenes with it.

    So, both the Hummer HX and the Aero X will be in botgh movies? Tie in? Mere coincidence?

    Beautiful car, I'm really glad they chose it.

    fucking awesome if this is for real, though the April 1st date makes makes it questionable.

    I love Wheeljack, and that car is badass. Of all the movie rumours I've heard to date, this gets me excited the most.

    That's a badass car. Doesn't look Wheeljack-ish, but badass nonetheless.
