Transformers 2 Bethlehem Images - Update - IRONHIDE On Set

Thanks to Squall42080 of the 2005 Boards for posting up some more new images from the set of Transformers 2 in Bethlehem PA. In them we see some more of the military folks in full uniform, a beat up mini Ice Cream Truck (man, that NEEDS to transform), a new military modified HX Hummer, and confirmation that the Ironhide truck is indeed on set.

Check out the images after the jump!

Staff Edit: - We previously reported that Optimus Prime was on set. My fault, I looked at the pics real quick before leaving myself. The pic actually shows Ironhide. He was not seen in the later afternoon/night on Wednesday.

wow hellicopters and a steel mill wow.

The only real stuff I care to see regarding spoilers is the Concept art for the newer robots.

something tells me we won't be seeing any of that until around January or Febuary though

I noticed alot of these topics are similar when it comes to the pics.

Looks to be well on it's way to being a kick-ass opener. I'm thinking the Apache might be a TF since the Blackhawks seem to be chasing it. (that and we already had a Blackhawk TF in the last movie who's supposedly dead) The Police Copter would make a cool Blades if it's a TW as well. If not, I'm sure they'll make it one in either the video game or as a filler toy for the Movie line.
llamatron
Yeah I'm guessing the Apache is a TF.
Blunticon
Great pics, to bad we can't tell whats goning on.
SureShot90
Woah bring on those AH64D Apache Longbow's.
Railguard
YYYaaaeeehhhhh!!!!! This movie is going to kick ass!!!!! That video was awseome!! Is that a new soundtrack in there?
Smokescreen
Cool pics. Looks like the opening will be just as big and exciting as the first film's base attack at the beginning.

But Blackout wasn't a Blackhawk. He was a MH-53 Pave Low.

Anywho, I agree with the assessment that the Apache is probably a TF. There's probably going to be some CGI going on in there as well.
Laser_Optimus
So, pretty much the same thing that was shown in the footage from the media? Interesting stuff... if this is the opening sequence it looks as though it'll be kick ass...

OOOOoooo....just...wet...myself

Even if it isn't Shocky, I HOPE it is a TF. An Apache TF would kick A$$
Brave Magnus

Indeed. I can see it now, Good Humor Man transform and roll out lol.
inferno1031
i guess i shouldve read the paragraph describing the pictures before i posted my last comment.........
frenzyrumble
too much speculation. realize, this is an opening scene, and realize almost every Bay movie doesn't have epic battle scenes or any real action until the way through the movie.

I don't understand how Prime is there though, since when can autobots fly? how did prime get from California to China? I predict however, that there is a recon where this new "S7" military works w/ the autobots, and stumble upon Prowl in China. Again...how Prime is there...i have no idea.

Highly doubt there will be any Autobot/Decepticon battles unless it's a 1-on-1 with Prowl and the Apache Copter....
lightdestroyed
That HX HAS to be a Decepticon!
Orion_Prime48
my picks for that hummer TrailBreaker or Soundwave the Apache I need to see more of it to judge if its actaully a TF
inferno1031
if they are going to stay with decepticons being the milatary vehicles, then i can the hummer being soundwave. Im also going on the assumption that it is a transformer becuase its a concept vehicle, and for some reason i kepp thinking i read somewhere that they were going to be using more concept vehicles for the alt modes

Do not question the autobots' ability to travel.
They can travel from the western US to the geological center of Africa in under two earth hours. Without using Jetfire.

We kind of already got one, remember Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal Black?

Retroqqq
It would be nice if it was Swindle but since its a GM vehicle , it will probably be an Autobot .
Sunstreaker
Duh...the ice cream truck is Wheelie!

I think we may have found Soundwave, people. Just outfit it with some speakers and few henchmen, and that's him. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go find a spare Movie Ratchet and some paint.
Infosaur
You ask me, that Ice Cream Truck Looks a LOT like the one from Twisted Metal. They don't have many trucks that either a.) look like that, b.) are in that condition or c.) still work (ie light up) I'd say keep your eyes peeled that that ICT doesn't show up elsewhere.



Some pics were just BORN to become sigs.

Dropshot
Very cool pics, again, the visuals for the movie are amazing.
Lion
I like the Ice Cream Truck, though that coulda been put there just for Bay to watch us all speculate...Although Ice Cream can go into a KUP..."back in my day..."

Did the music change a little in the beginning of the video...I got a distinctively Lord of the Rings vibe from it..."Transformers 2: Fellowship of the Matrix"
Jcanuc
The hummer concept would make a very nice update on Hound.

Swirl huh? Is he one of the Wreckers?

Why is everyone thinking this is the opening scene? Movies don't always shoot in scene order, they shoot based on set availability. I think this is a scene that will be shown later on in the film.
Mega-con
I thought it was reported that the opening scene was going to be shot in PA.
Rayzilla Prime
The smokestacks on the Optimus truck look like they are curved back at the top.

The Apache has to be a transformer, cause I would say that an Apache wouldn't be flying solo like that, especially with two Blackhawks on its tail. Vortex, perhaps?

A helicopter doesn't fit Soundwave. His alternate form needs to have something to do with sound communications, like the FBI van that's been mentioned before.

I'm 101% sure that the truck in the last photo is Ironhide, not Prime.

And that ice cream truck NEEDS to be a Transformer. It'd be hilarious...
Bahamut Prime
Cool pics!
normtrooper
Remember when Bay said he loved the idea of an "old" transformer? This ice cream truck is beat to hell I would presume it was kup then I remember it's an ice cream truck. He could be like an old creepy man wanting to lure children closer. My guess is its a nontransforming vehicle that will be used for humor of some kind.

I want that hummer to be hound sooo bad

That is without a doubt Ironhide and NOT Optimus. Just look at the pipes. They curve at the top.
Railguard
Coooolll. I can't wait to see this movie!!!!!
THE UNICRONNER
ah...fuck it...the ice cream truck is dubbed "ConeHead" and is a Decepticon that has one nutty personality ....there are you happy i ruined it for you

You know what? I hope this is true.
Shanman
can anyone else see ronald macdonald behind the window
dorfsquest
Take into consideration that the ice cream truck is white and PINK. If that is a TF, it better not be Kup, or any masculine transformer at the matter.

I highly doubt we'd see a pink ice cream truck TF. Probably just more cheeseball comic relief.
