    Thanks to Tom Collins of the 2005 boards we have learned that Vortex will be a MH-53J/M PAVE LOW Special Ops Command Helicopter.

    I actually helped update some software in the MH-53E as an intern at Raytheon in Indy :)  Needless to say I'm very excited to see this thing as a TF. Btw this copter is HUGE. They would always say how you could put a small tank or a jeep in this thing.

    I can live with an H-53. I was realy hoping it would be a 60, but then I am partial since I worked on them in the Navy.

    Destro got a question. What site did you get the 53s specs from?

    Larger then a F-22, correct? That either means that this one is going to be a monkey like that fake Starscream concept, or that the entire monkeyteam is bull and that the Autobots are going to be in a world of hurt.:ev:

    Who's Tom Collins?

    I only ask because the way I hear it there is no Vortex in the movie. A helicopter Decepticon, yes, but not Vortex....

    Vortex is the placeholder name for the character. I still am skeptical that this will be Soundwave though since it can carry things. I could picture him landing and Rumble, Frenzy, and Ravage running out of the back and attacking the US Infantry.

    I hope this ends up being Vortex, he is a cool, obscure character to put in the movie and I was hoping he'd be included since day one. though they said some of the names are placeholders, it turned out Bonecrusher will stay Bonecrusher, so hopefully Vortex will stay Vortex (or if they change him to Soundwave, that works too).

    I think the only names will see change will be Devastator/tank, Brawl/police cruiser and Soundwave/boombox.

    Its the Place Holder Name. But so far none of the names have changed, can't see why they would change this one.

    Oh believe me, some of the names have changed, most for the better, and maybe one for the worse.

    I'm hoping the names don't change personally...Vortex is a perfect name for a Helicopter, and Brawl fits that Mustang Police Cruiser perfectly. That and I really wouldn't be disappoined at all if Soundwave wasn't in the movie at all. Cool news, I'm really digging the Decepticon alt. modes for the movie...very badass cool stuff.

    Sheesh... between this guy, that tank, Starscream... along with the notion of no size shifting... how do the Autobots stand a chance?

    I really hope his name stays Vortex. I like that name for a helicopter and I think it would be an awesome way for them to segway in the rest of the Combaticons in the future. Especially if the Tank turns out to be Brawl, wich they could make a parner in crime out of.

    Thundercrakah, how do you know that information or are you just assuming?

    Other names do need changing though. But Vortex on the chopper is a good call.

    Quick! Get to the CHOPPAH!!! :D

    yes, if there's to be no mass-shifting at all then he's gonna be one big bugger! especially if he can carry another vehicle.

    I think Tom Collins posted some set photos awhile back.

    And you know as well as I that Vortex means the helocopter Decepticon whose name may or may not end up being Vortex.
