    Take this however you want, but I was just speaking to a friend of mine who is working the DC unit for Transformers 3, and he told me of two characters that he knows are going to be in the film. He has worked in film for a while now, and I trust him.

    The two characters he confirmed are:
















    Ultra Magnus
    Laserbeak



    He didn't know what their alt forms were (he's not into Transformers at all), but he told me that he would try to find out.

    If that Mad Max semi isn't Megatron, then I can totally see it being Ultra Magnus and leader of the Wreckers.

    ask him these:

    • who are the Decepticon Suburbans?

    • what is Laserbeak's alt-mode?

    • who is the Mad Max Semi-Truck?

    • who is the Airport Firetruck?

    • who is the Ferrari?

    • who is the Benz?

    • who are the Wreckers?

    • who is the Armored Bank Truck?

    • who is the Unknown Ship?

    • is Arcee back/the motorcycle we've seen?


    think that pretty much covers what we need to know character wise

    there was a picture of two or three Predator Drones parked in a warehouse along with Prime and Ratchet a fair few weeks ago..... wonder if they were Laserbeak (in the sense of LB being one drone with the other as a backup)

    Hmm. Laserbeak doesn't sound like too much of a stretch - I could definetly see another minion of Soundwave showing up.

    Ultra Magnus seems like a likely candidate for that big truck. Doesn't make sense for Megatron to take an Earth mode. Though I was expecting him to be blue, but we'll see. Here's hoping he has a weapon similar to Animated Magnus' hammer!

    While I am in no way attacking the credit of the OP, I'm still gonna hold judgement on your post. Just to be safe.

    Well, it was obvious that Laserbeak was going to be in the movie. If Hasbro didnt wanted to use him in Alliance.

    I remember a couple of years ago, they had like a transformer voting thing somewhere for characters to appear in the second movie. And I think Ultra magnus and Laserbeak were among some of the choices.

    So since those guys didnt appear in revenge of the fallen, it would be quite kick ass to see them in the upcoming movie.

    There are rumors of Ultra Magnus appearing.

    As for Laserbeak, there's a scene where Sam fights with a small Decepticon (roughly the size of Frenzy from Movie 1) on top of Shockwave. (Again, this info too is a rumor).

    Completely understandable. My source is honest, but as I can't reveal him or show actual proof of it, you can surely take it with a grain of salt.

    That said, I believe him to be on the money, as he has no reason to make up news for me.

    I'd rather Ultra Magnus end up being the fire truck to be honest.
    Still not convinced with the "Sentinel Prime" stuff.

    Absoutely. This makes way more sense to me, and would make for a very nice UM.
