    Let me say that I usuallly do not like posting images like these, because I don't know if it's false or not, but I found this on Bay's website, in the forum.

    I think it looks nice, but something about it just seems so wrong. I think it's fake.

    Looks more like one of the movie toys than an actual movie design to me.

    Well, given it's basically a mass of borrowed concepts from the other movie formers...

    The wheels at the feet split and expand, like Optimus's do
    The Chest angles inwards like Ironhide's
    The doors are positioned just like Barricades
    The arms are extremely close to Bumblebee's

    And the feet are much larger and flatter than any of the other movie designs. Most of the movie formers have arched, articulated feet, not flat blocks like those.

    Fan work, definitely.

    Plus its a Lambo. They're owned by Volkwagen, whom I doubt want anything to do with TF.

    Although having said that, VW also owns Audi. And there's an Audi in the movie. Go figure.

    It's too slavishly G1 to be a real design for the movie imo.

    What Audi? The R8 that's in Iron Man?

    I'm still waiting for this mysterious silver car to get photographed.

    That's a good point. With that in mind, can I get me a proper Bumblebee, please?

    The Audi R8 was mentioned in the leaked call sheet AND also there's this picture from Bay's site:

    [​IMG]

    So, I guess it's safe to say the Audi R8 is in the movie. It's a Decepticon I think, because the call sheet mentions Autobots chasing the Audi R8. That doesn't mean it neccesarily is a Decepticon, but chances are high I reckon. God, I'm obsessed with this movie.

    It's based on a real Lamborghini, not a GM car. Ergo, it's almost certainly fan art.

    Nice work, nevertheless. Reminds me of the Long Haul pic posted a while back.
