    If the H3 is a new Transformer, I doubt Ratchet is returning. Don't think the movie guys would be happy having the H2 and H3 in the movie as Transformers. Then again, Ratchet is modified enough with the emergency gear.

    I think you could be right, with Ratchet modified like crazy an H3 would be different enough to put in there as say an updated alt mode for someone like Hound.

    Plus with gas prices up all over the world I'm sure GM doesn't mind the Hummer getting any positive light it can get right now. I'm thinking Autobot though since last movie they brought in a Ford to be the Decepticon while the Autobots were mostly GM products.

    It's probably Ratchet with a few upgrades.
    I really wish they ditch the "this movie is a giant GM car ad" bit though -_-

    Again, Bumblebee should have been a Dodge Superbee.... grrrr

    I agree that it may be Hound. While noto military green, a black H3 as Hound would be SWEEEET, as long as the transformation style was significantly different than ratchets. Maybe have his cab become feet, his head from the rear, etc.

    I'm not so sure. The H3 is a smaller Hummer model than the H2, so its more of a downgrade if anything. Plus, he'd be doing away with all of the rescue equipment and motif. A plain black H3 does seem that fitting for a medic.

    It's possible these are just stand-ins for whatever color H3 will be featured in the movie. Then again, I wouldn't see GM displaying just any H3 there. That wasn't their style in the past. They've typically only displayed the ones that look like the ones from the movie.

    I was at the Cinema Expo in Amsterdam last year (they had a screening of Transformers there). They had the exact same setup last year (but for the H2) as well.

    My guess is updated Ratchet, simply part of the GM product sponsoring agreement.

    I hope this H3 is just a human vehicle too. I don't see Ratchet becoming this H3. I think an H3 is too small for an ambulance. Ratchet should have been a Topkick. Not an H2.

    Hound should NOT be this H3. He should be a JEEP. If there is one thing Hasbro did right, its making Alternators Hound into a Jeep. It fit him perfectly. Personality wise and physically.

    Come on GM, why don't you put in the Chevy Volt instead of this Hummer? Promote something that will actually SELL in the real world!

    Sweet, great news.

    The H3 is definitely in the movie, atleast as a military vehicle, there was one behind the HX in the first pics that came out.

    What would've been awesome is if they could have made a deal out with Rod Hall Racing to use one of their H3's as a Transformer.

    Well, at least whoever is going to be the Beat and Trax won't be discontinued anytime soon.

    Fuel efficiency and conservation are teh roxors!!

    So to wrap up, folks: Ratchet as H2. Hummer sales tank. GM discontinues H2. GM starts promoting H3. GM says entire Hummer brand may be discontinued. Ratchet now as H3?

    So maybe, just MAYBE, Hasbro should start diversifying into other brands?

    Defintately not Ratchet, and I would put my money that it's an S7 vehicle or other secret agency. We know S7 was disbanded but there was a casting call for the "head of sector 7".

    So I'm sure we haven't seen the last of it.

    Here we go again... the fake enviro-crusader of TFW2005... Now spewing more obnoxious rumors than ever!

    Beat and Trax can't be discontinued, because they've never been produced... LMAO...

    Fuel effiency and conservation DO ROCK, but to anyone who understands automotive tech, things take time, and you can't expect a 4WD vehicle to have the fuel effiency of an econobox. It's too bad for us (people who do require a capable 4WD vehicle) are seeing more and more of our favorite brands going through this gas crunch nonsense.

    So, after about a dozen TF2 related threads that you're trying to derail into an enviro-political trolling thread, what vehicle do you drive? How many times have you taken said vehicle on a trail and cleaned up the environment from rotting junk, tires, and garbage?

    How about one of these 3 Autobots Brawn, Outback or Rollbar. I think they would fit perfect for an H3.
