    Recently many rumors/confirmations have surfaced.

    Just curious whats everyones thoughts on the choices of characters and alt modes thus far.

    Jetfire- SR 71

    mystery- beat
    mystery- trax

    Sideswipe- corvette

    Mystery- volt

    Arcee- 1 0r 3 bikes...what would you rather have??? I prefer just 1

    Wheels?- RC truck..personally i dont like this character or alt mode

    Mystery- Audi R8...bascically the only decepticon alt we have seen other than megs i think...As for the Audi R8 i think this car is amazing great choice.

    mystery- ice cream truck twins....personally i hate this alt mode..i think the twins turn into the beat & trax but i still just dont like the ce cream truck idea

    Megatron- Tank, i think the tank is badass..reminds me of halos scorpion tank

    I am very happy Prime, ratchet, ironhide, BB keep the same alts

    DISCUSS!

    I think they're getting the fundamentals of the alt modes right, and at least remaining true to some previous incarnation of the character. It's a lot closer than last year, anyway, with Ratchet being a hummer, Ironhide being a pickup truck, and Devastator being a tank. I'm relieved Scorponok was still a scorpion, at least.

    Jetfire = jet
    Arcee = motorcycle
    Sideswipe = sports car
    Megatron = tank
    Devastator = construction vehicles

    The RC car is a filming vehicle, NOT a tf.

    For some reason i agree with you, I dought that little RC truck is a mini transformer.

    Anyways for the most part I didn't like the idea of prime combining with jetfire until I stopper myself and went...HE IS A FRICKEN BLACKBIRD!! Then I thought maybe a cool looking dark prime!!! As for the Icecream twins, I thought it was a neat little idea to show just what happens when transformers get a little screwy.

    The voly, I honestly think still is soundwave or shockwave for that matter. But I question why Insideline would say that it doesn't have a name or an alt mode because i twas only filmed for 2 days...

    Maybe it could be a Stunticon (Wild Rider, Breakdown, Dead End?)

    I have another question because my other thread was closed:

    Can someone explain what the (same) face on Wreckage's belly is doing which was also seen on Megatron's ? alt-mode ?

    :lol  although you spotted that, it is just a coincidence

    Anyways orci said it wasn't soundwave, however that isn't what i'm saying

    I'm saying why would bay take the time for a new car like that and put it into the movie when clearly it has to be a transformer, I mean what other purpose is it going to serve, bays canon fodder? :lolol

    maybe this is outside the box... but what-if, Soundwave is his G1 incarnation, like he crashed in the 80's and got stuck in tape recorder mode only to later be reformatted by cube energy?!?!

    Okay if you are gonna take that scenic route :D 

    What-if the Dinobots landed millions and millions of years ago, scanned the living dinosaurs that were walking the earth in those days, got burried on tons of rocks, the Autobots found remains of them somewhere in the present day and Ratchet decides to re-built them :rock  :banghead:
