GM's Top Designer Ed Welburn To Make Cameo Appearance In Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction

Detroit News is reporting that General Motors' Top Designer Edward T. Welburn will make a cameo appearance in Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

In a film clip shown to media on Thursday, the generally calm Welburn, appearing to be angry, points to the film’s star Mark Wahlberg and speaks the lines, “My office in 15 minutes. I think you know where that is.”

Bumblebee was also mentioned:

The leaner and meaner Camaro in the film originally was sketched by Jelani Aliyu, senior creative designer for the Camaro. Its base was a Camaro SS but it was modified in many spots.

Aliyu said his sketch is close to the finished vehicle, or character as he sees it. He said he had to “give it a soul,” and the Camaro features a new face and “eyes.” He gave it a wider track and bigger tires.

I hope there's a part of the movie where Bumblebee's ignition switch fails and he falls off a 40 story building.

Nice, you know nothing about cars, but nice.


I hope Ed Welburn is in it, the man has an eye for good lines.
Now if more of that was devoted to things rear wheel drive and not front wheel drive I would appreciate it more.

Diaclone / Transformers started in *JAPAN*. *EUROPE* took over Transformers after the U.S. Neither of them gets any recognition in any TF movie. Every time I hear something new about TF4, it makes me PROMISE not to see it when I am home in July. Marketed to low life China, locations for China, cars for China, Dinobots changed to Dragons for China. Now a GM exec gets a speaking line instead of one of the 30 year fans? Makes me SICK to my stomach.

Did he design the ignition switches?

Uh-Oh. Shitstorm a brewin.

I see no problem with GM's designer getting a cameo considering many of the cars from the movie series are from GM. Its a cameo so he'll be gone in a minute or so.

Would be more appropriate a cameo of Peter Cullen?

Here, here! Though I think it's cool to have one of GM's top designers appear in the movie, I think it'd be great to see Peter Cullen on screen! He made a cameo already in the comics, but I'd like to see him in the TF movie(s)! XP
