New Transformers 4 Set Photos Reveal A Possible New Robot?

Posted on 05-29-2013 at 02:56 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)

More photos are arriving from the set of Transformers 4 Principal Photography. These photos are also courtesy of Instagramer rezzieboi.

First pic is a side look at Movie Optimus Prime 2.0 (Had to do a Miko there).

Second image is a never before seen look of a new (well actually, a rusty old) truck vaguely resembling the old G1 Optimus Prime from the cartoon. The photo uploader is mentioning that the rusty truck is a Dinobot: "One of the new #transformers from yesterday movie shoot #dinobots, who are u!!! Damn sexy a.f that's what'd up #michaelbay #markymark". We currently have no confirmation on who this might turn out to be. Have a guess.

Number 3... Bumblebee (well, that sure rhymed). It seems we have to take the word of the photographer who seems to have seen the vehicle which is now covered.

Take a look at the images, after the jump.




Special thanks to TFW2005 Boards Member Waveride for pointing these out for me. He's back in business!

Wait what...the post mentions Dinobots? Don't tell me that one of the Dinobots is actually a beat up version of G1 Optimus' altmode? That would make no sense.

So weird!
General Tekno
It's a dead G1 Optimus Prime!

(I kid, I kid.)
Deceptigtar
its megatron lol.

Oh look, they totally fucked up and painted the wrong truck to be Optimus. Looks like they lost the one they were supposed to paint.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but if not: the post is a Twitter tweet just with a Dinobot hashtag thrown into it. It doesn't mean or imply anything.
Haloid1177
How are we sure that's BB again?
SPLIT LIP
I eagerly anticipate that truck just being a normal truck and not somebody.

If this is the case, this just further cements why I love the Transformers movie lead-up and speculation times: Bay's systematic trolling of Transformers fans is amazing and I never want it to end.

Bay will pass it off/imply it/leave it to us to imply it as a reference to G1.

But we know.
Barricade24
That truck looks like it might have an Autobot symbol on the grill. But the quality isn't good enough to tell.

If I had to take a wild guess it would be Ultra Magnus.
Barricade24
I don't know if that is Bumblebee or not. It looks more like Mirage to me. But we won't know for sure until we get a shot of it uncovered.
Onslaught24
I really hope that isn't Grimlock. Or any of the Dinobots. If the Dinobots are going to have actual vehicle alt modes instead of dinosaurs, they need to be spiky/heavily armored IMO. And that goes for all of them. Not just Slag and Snarl

Actually if it has a dinosaurian looking robot mode then it would make sense.
Ikkstakk
I'll find it beyond hilarious if it ends up being Megatron. They wouldn't make Prime a flat-nose semi, but they sneak it in as Megatron...!
Waveride
We're not to be honest but the person who took this photo seems to at least know his Transformers. He also seems to "in" with the people on the crew since he posted another photo where he is on the actual set with the Bugatti.

No, it still wouldn't make any sense, unless we're just supposed to sit back and think because they're dinosaurs they'll use an ancient semi for alt. mode and it'll work.

Well how else will they get the Dinobots in if that's the case? Unless if they're going for the moretraditional method for the Dinobots and give a good reason why they exist that way in the real world having them be dinosaurian in roobt mode with regular alt modes is the best way to go for now.

It's simple: don't do Dinobots. Why call them Dinobots if they aren't dinosaurs? Seems like a pretty simple concept to me.
DrLee
Kup?
rosewater
Old, white, rusty cab-over? Ultra Magnus. And I think that "Drift" will end up being Blurr. And if the green Vette does end up changing to Springer, I think we're looking at a post-animated movie / season 3 cast here. All conjecture of course. That, and a desire to see that rusty truck get all armored and huge...
soymonk
Ultra Wreck-Gar Magus? lol
Lazerwave
I'm hoping Motormaster.

But something tells me it's Megatron or Galvatron.
Snaptrap
I expect the Optimus Prime cab over axel to be just a nod to the fans, like the Volkswagon Beetle in the first film. But I would gain some respect for Bay if he proved me wrong and gave us what we want.

I doubt they'd go that far. I mean why take away something that made them iconic? It's not the same as making Bumblbee a Camero now instead of a Beetle because it's still a car in the end. Their dinosaruian aspect's what made them famous. At least they'll have Dinosaurian like robot modes with regular alt modes.

Because they still resemble and act like Dinosaurs even if they don't have a humanoid robot mode anymore? There are ways of still making them Dinobots you just have to be creative about how you translate them into the Movieworld.
Burnout
watch the rusted truck be galvatron....since bay has butchered megatron why not bastardize galvatron?

Flat nosed truck alert!
Flat nosed truck alert!

G1 toy brick on the set!!!

I don't know if its just me but that white city bus looks eerily like Ironhide's front truck mode,could we possibly see IH return as a tour bus?.We will just have to wait and see.

Nemesis Prime is that you?

Oh dear lord. Truck is similar to G1 Optimus, but it's messed up. Considering Megatron's dead I'd place my bet on Nemesis Prime too.
MandarinQuake
I'm thinking Motormaster or Huffer
Lazerwave
Once we find out if there will be Dinobots in the movie I want to ask everyone a simple question.
Scorpio
I'm guessing the G1 looking vehicle is the Dinobot - Grimlock.
I'm guessing the cloaked one is Bumblebee.

As for Prime... I kind of like it - will make an interesting toy and the design looks sleeker - though it is starting to get a bit too far away from the classic design. Hopefully the toys are good - as I wont be seeing the film unless its a major change.

What's the question?

Time travel. I want to be wrong. I really do. Back in September, 2012, there was a copy of a leaked script that Bay vehemently claimed was not written by any of his writers. In it there was a scene where the Autobots end up time traveling to the 1980s to save the world. During their stay there they all don 80s-esque alt. modes to blend in. Optimus' alt mode in the script was an obvious throw back to his old alt mode during the 80s. To top that off the script featured at least 3 Dinobots, Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge and Unicron. There were other Autobots also. The script on a whole was not very good but we'll see where the similarities end.

It's probably a throwaway joke like the yellow bug in the 1st movie. "Drift": Dat sure is dumb rooking truck".
darthJMZ
Wonder if Bee will get his Stealth Black deco like in Prime
Secretcode
God, I would love that. I'd also be fine with the Cyberfire Deco becoming the new "normal"...

Fake. A version of that script popped up pre-ROTF, too.
Bumblethumper
I want it to be Magnus. It's his year. I would buy that toy.

Obviously I have difficulty looking at these things without G1 glasses.

Anyway, old-school, beat-up altmodes do far more for me than shiny pimped-out conceptmobiles.

Although, I accept, it's probably channeling a bit too much of Duel to be an autobot.

Man I seriously hope you're right. I can already see somewhat how that old truck may work in the story too. Prime sees the model and scans it. Of course he doesn't have to assume the colour scheme or wear and tear of the model but he can use it, perhaps, temporarily.

Yeah that was my first thought too. The Veyron is colored like Blurr (and that name makes hella sense for a car that can do 263mph) and the white cab-over is exactly what Magnus is. If there's a new green C7 Corvette Stingray under that cover, then we are indeed looking at the '86 movie cast...It'll be interesting to see if Springer remains a triple-changer.

It is Ironhide's truck. The GMC Topkick is a very common choice for large utility vehicles like ambulances and small busses, because when it was on sale it was offered as a chassis-cab (where it had no back bodywork because the buyer was going to put their own on it). It's just a vehicle on-set to get people to and from the location.

If that happened and a toy popped out...here come the custom repaints! Lol

For a fact, every movie they get at least 1 original actor from the G1 tv series or original movie.

For example,
Movie 1: Peter Cullen aka Optimus
Movie 2: Frank Welker aka Soundwave
Movie 3: Leonard Nimoy aka Galvatron, but he played Sentinel

So they must be bring 1 random actor from the G1 cartoon.

So my question is if the Dinobots are in the movie is, "Who wants the orignal voice actor who plays Grimlock to voice Grimlock in Transformers 4?"

YAY MAGNUS! kidding...wait...am I?

...I think you might be making a giant leap of logic on this one, to be honest. It's probably just a background truck to make a joke similar to the VW Bug callback in the 2007 Movie.
