    Ohhhh that was pretty neat, that last scene they were filming looks like it's gonna be kickass. Heres to hoping that there is going to be a robot doing all that destruction.

    OMG, was that Prowl in the beginning? Look behind the guy with the big sunglasses saying "The first day." It looks like Prowl.

    The Audi R8! The Arcee motorcycles!

    What, the Chinese police car?

    That's supposed to be just that: A Chinese police car. (There can be vehicles that are not Transformers in the movie!)

    I'm sure we'll know before that. If nothing else, when the toys show up (and are officially announced etc.).

    Awesome! Can't wait to see who the Audi is. Definitely a Decepticon. Also, three Arcee bikes...I wonder if she really will be composed of all three, or if she has some holographic decoy type thing going on?
    Also, the soldier with the portable machine gun turret a la Halo 3 at 1:54 is awesome.

    Considering one of the reasons why Arcee was cut from the first movie was because a single bike would have made her robot mode tiny, she will indeed be a three-bike combiner in this one to address the problem.

    Although cool to see some filming, that was pretty much a Bay-fomercial.

    I wonder if arcee is 1 robot with 3 seperate parts like magmatron, its obvious now she is 3 bikes, i still think its odd, and would look too unrealistc, i know its a movie about giant aien robots but 3 bikes form 1 being is odd. If there are 3 seperate robots eg frenzy sized who form a combiner i have no probs but it looks a little dodgy to me, im a luittle worried as to how it will work and i think it will look stupid.

    Perhaps those three bikes are three of the female autobots, ala Elita One, Firestar, Moonracer, Chromia, etc...

    It would make more sense, than 1 being, as i still dont understand how magmatron can do as he does. Chromia, firestar, moonracer and elita 1 would be good choices as a bike combiner. I hope the bikes transform diferently but doubt it, im just dreading the allspark and camo repaints all ready, i bet the hasbro repaint crew are cacling.

    Though the term "problem" is subjective. Her height and size was never really a problem, people just made it a problem because they had it in their minds that "size matters"

    I think this is really stupid. Transforming into three seperate vehicles is not smart - what happens if one bike blows up? Will Arcee turn into a robot with no legs? This is going to ruin her established bot mode and turn her into some six-wheeled rainbow-freak. Why couldn't they have just made one bike with a mix of those three colours, instead of having one completely pink bike, one completely blue bike and one completely purple bike? So what she'll be taller - so far it looks like we'll only see her in the opening scene...

    Also, I guess that guy who dropped by the forums in June to say he had the first pic of the Arcee bike (the one hidden in the music video) was telling the truth. Nobody believed him, but it looks to be the same purple bike.

    I thought the reason Arcee was cut from the first movie was cuz they had to scale back on # of characters? As far as I understood she was pretty much the last one to get cut.

    Arcee..3 bikes.......not.....


    In bot form she would have 6 tire components...The art work has only 2....I'm sure the other bikes are simply just other non-Transformer bikes.

    Nah, she got replaced by Ironhide because having to explain that there's girl robotsd in adittion to giant, transforming robots would've took too much time.


    Baos, Bayos, Bay-os... I wish I could see how it's spelled. I like Micheal Bay's humour. Everybody looked excited, and Josh and Tyrese are cool. The big fight at the end was awesome.

    on the character scale pics from the first film, didn't it show Arcee as bout 8 feet tall? The smallest of Autobots, right next to the human silhouette?

    Would make more sense to me if she remained 1 bike. I think 1 bike would form a 8 foot robot.
