    So they mentioned in a recent list of spoilers that some Autobots will be military vehicles. Any ideas as to who?

    Someone mentioned Springer as an Osprey

    I think Hound will be make an appearance as a NEST Hummer

    I wonder what other possibilities there are?

    Well if they stick with G1 names I guess we'll see Roadbuster,Hound and Warpath.

    I can't believe this many Transformers will be in the movie... and transform. I'm not doubting it, and I know Bay said 40 robots. But I hope he didn't misinform us on something that would dissapoint us in the end.

    Last I checked, Hasbro can't use the name Trailbreaker anymore. Oh, and they can't get around it by sticking "Autobot" in front of such an unusable name.

    'Trails' or 'Breaker' could work.

    Hound would be a really good choice.

    Not sure which other series they are willing to take characters from. Or at least which other series they are willing to use Autobot characters from, so it could be several new movie universe characters added.

    I had a theory of this in another thread, mind, THEORY, no basis in it, anywhere

    Hound: HUMVEE
    Warpath: Abrams or Bradly
    Power Glide: A10 Thunderbolt
    A F35 Lightening?
    A Apache?
    A Blackhawk?

    Meh, who knows. I doubt any of them really

    I'm pretty sure Springer will be one of them, and that he'll get a new mold Voyager toy (ok, they might do a repaint/retool of Incinerator, but I think he deserves a new mold). Hound and Warpath are two other possibilities, especially since Hasbro will be able to use their name trademarks. Not sure who else will be a part of the military themed Autobots. Would be cool to see Landmine show up, imo.

    They've tried to use Trailbreaker several times in the past without success between 2003 and 2005, with Hasbro putting considerable tooling work into making toys "Trailbreaker", but being forced to release them as differently-named characters.

    For more details on the attempts, see here.

    Its definately a new mold. I checked it.

    But Landmine is a interesting idea. Engineering vehicle or mine layer?

    Hardhead as a tank of some kind would be nice. And I like the 'Powerglide as an A-10' idea - it's a great Classics/Universe homage.

    Yeah, I think the original was supposed to be a A-10 in the cartoons but just...... wasn't. Either way, I'd love to hear a A-10 mocking decepticons while strafing them >:D 

    Oh, and it needs to be red. Bright red.
