MichaelBay.com Updated: Favorite New Transformer Poll confirms New Autobots?

Here's some Transformers 4 news to make you scratch your head. Michael Bay's official website has updated with a poll asking fans to vote on their "Favorite New Autobot". Choices to vote for include all of the following:
  • Optimus Prime
  • Bumblebee (1967 Camaro SS)
  • Bumblebee (2014 Concept Camaro)
  • Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse
  • Corvette Stingray
  • Hound (Medium Tactical Vehicle)
  • Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe
  • Chevy Sonic RS
  • Pagani Huayra
  • 2014 Argosy by Freightliner

We've known for some time that the top six choices were confirmed to be new characters. But this is the first time the Chevy Sonic, the Lamborghini, the Pagani Huayra or the Argosy have been mentioned as Autobots. Take this as a grain of salt. This could be a simple error or naming the poll incorrectly (perhaps they meant favorite new "Transformer") or this could be a factual list. Time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy the poll. Head over to the link above to cast your vote.

Given that Chevy Sonic is listed on this of 'Transformers' rather than 'new cars' looks like this confirms he may indeed be another new Autobot.
tonyformer
Um... Can a mod move this to news please and give my man Sam some cred for pointing this wonderful news out for us

I'm not sure how I'm gonna vote considering the robot modes are not yet revealed and the true names of some characters aren't either.

If I had to vote I guess I'm excited for the following: the Bugatti, Hound or the 2014 Bumblebee.

Or misinformation. Just saying.

I think that confirms the Chevy sonic rs in a transformer. I'm hoping it's an autobot. That car got my vote

Vote for your favourite Transformer (Official Poll))

Hence the words so far is it possible there are more reveales to come?

I agree that it could be smokescreen. With him being in TF prime and being a rookie with little to no field experience this really has that feel to it to me. He is the rookie of the team and prime puts him in charge of the humans and his only job is to protect them. The character seems popular enough now to put him in a movie.

Chevy sonic rs got my vote.
black mamba
The Corvette got mine!!!

Wait, when did the Chevy Sonic RS get confirmed as a transformer? Or is this an accidental leak?

It may be accidental. It's on the poll though. We all kind of new it probably was a TF anyhow. Bot or con has yet to be determined, but I'm guessing it's an autobot

Vote for a transformer thr hasn't been given a name yet, maybe they will reveal the name of the transformer with the most vote! I voted for the Lamborghini Aventador he just screams out Decepticon!
tonyformer
I voted for Hound. I love that he's not a fancy car or truck. He's just a bad ass machine and lmao, will probably be the softy of the unit. LMFAO, picture it now, here roles in Hound and he transforms in a very awe inspiring and to be respected transformation and this massive bot trips and falls on his face because he tries to avoid stepping on a squirrel

That's what I envision lol
tonyformer
There is already a thread for this but its more or less been confirmed as all the vehicles up on the front page are TFs. And I can say for fact that the Sonic is a TF

I could see this to now that you mention it. All I can picture now is Hound rescuing spike in G1. That was hilarious the first time I saw it

I'm guessing there's probably CGI only Transformers too. And the rusty cab over isn't on that list either.
transformervic1
I voted for the 2014 freightliner. It's the one vehicle that I'm dying to know who it is and how it will transform.
normtrooper
I can't believe the Sonic is a transformer. Awesome.

God I wish they would reveal names...as long as they are transformer names...
Smokescreen

I agree with this statement. Although, I'm still not holding my breath that it's Smokey. Could still be a 'Con, but the Sonic RS got my vote, regardless.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this way. Show the sonic some love
Astrocon
Maybe the rest of the 'bots.. are just cybertronian modes....
evac167
I think whatever other transformers who show up will all be CGI.
Red Goblin
There was this user, TheLastPrime, he provided great info from TF3 set. I wonder where he is now, he could tell us what we want to know.
tonyformer
Ok, we'll with the possibility of all the revealed vehicals to be Bots (and I don't think they all are) but lets say hypothetically they all are.

Then I'm going to say the Sonic is either Smokescreen or Ciffjumper.

If the lambo is a Bot I'm going to say Prowl.

If the Pagani is a Bot I'm going to say the new Dino.

The green Vette, I'm going to say either Sunstreaker (being the green paint job) looks like a sun burst pattern. Or Lockdown who is a Con Spy.

I'm going to call the Bugatti Drift who like lockdown came over with lockdown but later has a change of heart and decides to stay with the bots.

If the new cab over is a Bot than m going to say Magnus.

But again, this is all hypothetically speaking.

I think the Sonic is Smokescreen. I did Say awhile back that the Sonic could be cliffjumper but everyone kind of beat me up because he isnt red. I agree with the Pagani being Dino. I dont have a guess on the vette or bugatti lol. Cab over would surely be UM
QLRformer
Voted for Hound. He's different from the standard Autobot sleek vehicle we've seen, being a heavy-duty military vehicle, so that makes him a curiosity enough for me.
AutobotJazz1
I voted for that sweet sexy ass Pagani. Unfortunately people are gonna stay sucking Bee and Optimus even though they clearly know it's them 2!!!

Well I wish all the people that love Bee and OP so much would buy up most of the toys so we don't have them peg warming lol

There are probably going to be many more that aren't cars. (Decepticons or Autobots) This is most likely close to all of the vehicles that will be used but I would be SHOCKED if there aren't Tanks, Planes, etc

well if the rumors are true of Galvatron, I'd expect him and maybe Cyclonus and scourge if they are in to be CGI. I'd like to see Springer and Warpath who would probably be CGI too. Than we have the rumored Dinobots so yeah, they would be CGI too. And I'm sure we would get more Con soldiers and or Sweeps and idlove to finally see some no name Bot soldiers like the ones we seen in DOTM on the Ark.

I am not a fan of no name bots. I prefer the way it was handled in Transformers 1, a small cast of bots and cons that way there's some character development...although even Transformers 1 lacked the development it was at least better than the last 2 in that regard. I guess I just would like the supporting cast to have more than a handful of lines. I would be ok with no names if the main cast was done justice though.
Lazerwave
I just hope there will be at least 1 to 5 more Autobots to be Confirmed. Hint Hint.
tonyformer
Ok, really guys. If you are going to post it up on the front page. Lets not quote it from S4TE as choose your new favorite AUTOBOT. It says favorite "transformer".

And on twitter, it says "transformers" vehicle. As in just cars from the movie, robot or not. That made me think, which one is true?

All vehicles on the poll are transformers. We know for sure 5 are autobots. many believe the sonic is an autobot. The other 3 is anybodys guess
Ratchets Hatch
So the flatnose truck and the Lamborghini are Autobots? At this rate, it looks like TF4 will have no Decepticons at all!
tonyformer
No, the poll asked what your favorite transformers is so far.

Someone else foundation fake FB page for TF4 and it had them all together as Autobots. And some ran with it. But in no way have they been officially confirmed as Autobots.

And with the mention of "so far" that would hint that more are to come.

Thats the way I read it as well

The title of the news is incorrect and is confusing people.. This vote is for favorite transformer, not favorite autobot.
black mamba
The Corvette is the bomb.
SlayerDarkCross
My love is going to the 1967 Camaro as I would love to see more classic car Transformers.

Also because its the most true American vehicle on the list and assembled right here in California =)
