TFW2005 Boards Member Shockwaved brings us scans from the latest Empire Magazine (April 2011). Guess who’s on the cover… It’s Sentinel Prime and the “all-newOptimus Prime.

Inside the magazine (who once praised this very site for uncovering the Title of Transformers 3) are some scenes from the movie and Spoilers.

Take a look at the images (big thanks, Shockwaved) and spoilers (Thanks to knook), After the jump.

Update: Member TheSpacebridge has sent us a couple of High Resolution Scans from the images inside. Thank You, Sir!

Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon will hit theaters on 1st of July, 2011.


Spoilers
Thanks to knook, in his own words...
Does and Don'ts for TF3:
1. No sand
2. No "dorky" humor ("we wanted to make the movie much more serious, more adult)
3. When robots die, they're really going to die and we're gonna show that
4. We're not bringing people back
5. Give the robots more 'weight' in the story ("They were missed in movie two. We've given them a strong back-story and pathos")

Sentinel Prime is "A big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime"

The Ferrari is a 'Con who (Michael) bay is dubbing as 'Dreadbox'

New companions for Starscream, Shockwave and the rest

"The scale on one of them is jawdropping" - "It will be 'what the Hell was that thing?"

Apollo 11 'incident' show in the teaser is government secret

No army for this, Chicago is left up to the 'Bots but some heroes sneak in through the back-door so to speak

The human gliders are used because they slip under the 'Con radar - as do humans - so they'll be the people who can hammer it to the 'Cons and create an opening for the 'Bots


Kudos Guys!

Digging the gun Optimus has. Sentinel looks pretty awesome as well.
Ratchet2007
Wow that's awesome! Any info inside?
harrismonkey
COOL!!!!

Is there more inside? The only thing that looks different there with "all new Optimus" is his gun.
Prowl 2009
Nice!

that is hot mayn

I cant tell the difference from this render of Optimus from the previous 2 movies.
Sentinel made my head explode.
knook
Those aren't renders but cut from an image of the film, the image shows Optimus and Sentinel in a city and both appear quite damaged.
SPLIT LIP
Right below Optimus' chest windows is different.
Rogzilla
OK, Sentinel Prime has the look of MURDER in his eyes! Someone is about to get f*cked up!
Shockwaved
Here's some more photos from inside









There's the photo of Shia running with crap blowing up behind him in an office.

I'm skimming through the story at the mo, but so far it's just about his dogs and him editing the movie.

They've said this before, but I don't mind them repeating this.

Can I get a "HELL YES?"

Quote:

Hmmm. So not quite "father" but a father-figure perhaps? Can't wait to see this relationship explored. Sentinel deffinitely seems like a major player.

Quote:
The Ferrari is a 'Con who bay is dubbing as 'Dreadbox'
He's a CON? *raises an eyebrow* Color me interested. I think this is the second time it's been mentioned, along with the stand in name of "Dreadbox" so I think we can say it's valid at this point.

Quote:
New companions for Starscream, Shockwave and the rest
Companions?

"The scale on one of them is jawdropping" - "It will be 'what the Hell was that thing?"
Of what, the robots? The companions? Confusion! >_<

Quote:

I wonder how much of it will be in the film itself.

I know a LOT of fans will be happy with this! This might be the film they've been waiting for.

That...actually makes a lot of sense. It'll be interesting to see how Lennox and co play into the final battle.

That's all folks
Danke!
Shockwaved
It also says that their weakspots are the eyes, which I think was mentioned before somewhere
knook
Companions is all it says, it seems like there's a lot of secrets surrounding the 'Cons and who'll be on their side, from what it sounds like with the 'scale' of one of them, we're getting a new combiner... Either that or the ships we saw transform... I'm hoping combiner. From the sounds of it he'll be bigger than Devastator and in a place such as a city he'll look absolutely amazing.
Shockwaved
Also "Dreadbox" won't have a cheesy Italian accent as Ferrari have to approve it.
harrismonkey
Here's a messed up (unlikely) thought-

we know the ferrari spends quite a bit of time with the autobots- which could mean he's a spy, he changes sides, or bay is trying to fool us.

We also know there's a HA toy of Soundwave coming- and up to this point nothing HA has been bigger than a car. Is it possible this is actually soundwave?

Like I said, unlikely.

Hmmm...sounds more and more like the rumor that Dylan being allied with the cons/a pretender is true. I'd be fine with the latter but I expect the former to be honest.

The large one could be Unicron. I mean, it doesn't get much bigger, does it? And that's been rumored for a while. Perhaps it will just be a different take on it, rather than planet eating evil robot god.

It's possible, it's what Bay is calling him but the article makes it seem like that isn't his name so what you've said actually sounds very, very likely
Opticron Primal
Gotta say Sentinel looks daaaamn good there. I just love his face. It looks so royal yet warrior.
DarkWish
Remember that one Dark of the Moon book called "Autobots Betrayed!" (source: Transformers 3 Title Revealed? - Transformers News - TFW2005). I think it's quite possible that the Ferrari "Dreadbox" is who they're referring to. He was with the Autobots during filming, so he could betray them since he's a secret Decepticon or something.

And actually... come to think of it... did the Ferrari seen during filming have an Autobot logo? I don't think it did, but correct me if I'm wrong.

It's good to be in the UK

This is in shops already right?

Should be just about everywhere, subscribers tend to get it the same days as the shops.
sideswipe89
whoa! Cool picture and cool info. So the ferarri is a decepticon? Is he a defector like jetfire and wheelie? because every shot we've seen from filming shows him with the other autobots. And i doubt he's a spy because why would bay reveal that?

Bay didn't, we've seen no official images of the Ferrari and any shot of him was on-set. Bay merely said he was a 'Con named Dreadbox which means either way he's a spy to the 'Cons or 'Bots.

So he says he's a 'Con means:

A) A Decepticon will pretend to be a 'Bot and this will be revealed at the beginning of the film so we know and the 'Bots don't

B) He's an Autobot and we don't find out till the end or middle of the film

This is all going by what we've seen on-set.
DarkWish
Oh, and another thing... the red head we saw during filming had red eyes and some people thought it was for a Decepticon. I can't believe all these pieces were there the whole time, and we just didn't piece it together... red eyes, no Autobot logo, etc.

ah, you bring up some good points...
Brave Magnus
Thanks for posting the inner pages and share info with us. ^^
Can i say that Sentinel is gonna give me nightmares putting that face while holding his blade? XD Seriously, he looks killer. XD
Anguirus
Is it just me of is everything from the article you just posted fantastic news? It's like Bay actually read my laundry list of complaints regarding the lame action scene that ended RotF.

Ferrari a Decepticon eh? Didn't see that coming. Hopefully it's not a huge spoiler (who am I kidding, I'd be all over it anyway).
grimlock1972
Interesting as for the Ferrari I shall wait and see.

As far as I can tell from currently-released images/video and the new toys, main difference with Prime (besides the Mechtech gun) is that his torso is redesigned a bit. He sort of has 'abs' where the flat red section of his hood's firewalls were. You can see this most easily on his Ultimate toy. Bumblebee has a similarly redesigned torso.

There's probably changed details on both that we don't know about yet.
vektsilver
Personally I hated the gun arms the chicken legs and alot of the really over the top robotic things they added to this line but I do love the change to a single handheld gun for ops.

I think I just like anything that makes them seem less robotic and more human its cooler to identify with them.

That gun OPs is got is pretty awesome.
prime326
Wow Sentinel Prime looks awesome.
wowzers
sentinel looks badass as for the ferrari i never expected him to be a decepticon be nice to see how it plays out
Radioactive Ravage
Sentinel looks great- a lot like Prime, actually. Same stature, same helmet design, and heroic posture. Looking forward to seeing both of these guys on screen.
TylerMirage
Yeah, I'm starting to notice some minor tweaks to Optimus' design there. The chest/abs and even his arms (the elbow-like bits) are extended. Oh, and that giant gun.

Awesome images. I'm so stoked. Sentinel Prime looks amazing. And I really do hope that they're right about the Transformers (more weight, etc.).

Thanks for the find!
brawl 56
I like the new look of prime.
Now he's in some serious business. I mean look at that effin' rifle. It's not a gun (nor two) anymore, that's awesome!

Oh, and they show how they die? I mean, how they really die in a battle? I hoped for this since the end of TFTM, really. Eventhough they're gigantic alien robots they need to die like we know it and not in a heroic way. That didn't suit them.

And Sentinel...meh. I'm also dissappointed by the toy, eventhough the Panther looks amazing.
So, just my opinion on that.
