Transformers 2 Movie Set Images - Chevy Malibu Police Car

Thanks to an anonymous email tip we now have new images from the Transformers 2 Movie set in Bethlehem PA.

In them we see some various shots of the steel mill being turned into a Chinese city with Chinese letter based signs, and a shot of a Chinese police car. The police car is a Chevy Malibu, slightly altered with the appropriate paint applications.

Whether or not the car seen will actually be a Transformer or not is unknown.

Enjoy!

That's the first thing I thought.............LET IT BE PROWL!

That would kick so much ass.

Very G1-esque, maybe you are right. But a Malibu for prowl? I think they can do better. I hope Prowl does appear and that the Malibu isn't hm.

Since Chevy has been the Autobot brand I'm also betting Prowl. Unless it ends up like in the first film where a wrecker was just a wrecker. But people that wanted more movie toys got a figure out of the wrecker so if nothing else maybe it will at least mean a movie style Prowl out of it all.

Interesting. That could definitely be Prowl, and it won't surprise me if it is. That's one movie sequel toy I might get, depending on what his bot-mode looks like. If it is him, a battle with Barricade is a must have for the movie.

Edit: I'm honestly hoping this is Prowl. That way we can get at least one bot that doesn't transform into a really flashy car. I'm also hoping for Hound to show up with a Humvee alt-mode. I'd rather have more ordinary alt-modes, than more expensive sports and concept cars. That way they blend in a bit easier.
Thundercrackah
Please be Prowl!
Soundwave2
as much as I'd love it to be Prowl, I'm pretty sure they would've given him some flashier wheels if he were to be a movie character

With all the "trans-scanning" in this movie, that could just as easily be Bumblebee, Barricade, or any other robot. This is what makes trans-scanning a stupid idea. Each robot is associated with a certain car. To make each robot able to be whatever he wants detracts majorly from his personality and characterization and confuses the audience as to who the potential robot is that is shown by the vehicle.

......Well, they're filming it as a fictional Asian city, but shit, would still be awesome.

Prowl would be cool, but something tells me it isn't. I want it to be really badly, but I don't want to get my hopes up, haha.
Spoiler
If you can seriously look at that and say it is NOT Prowl..you must be outta your mind. That has got to be prowl. I mean in all seriousness if you look at the old G1 series and see what they scanned...they weren't the flashiest cars out there. I think it looks pretty good for what it is. Think of Bumblebee in his crappy mode...did you see the engine they were aiming for under that hood...I rest my case.
heavymtl
I'm with you guys - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be Prowl!!! He was my very first transformer, way back in the day . . . ah, memories!

I'll also second the Prowl/Barricade battle scene!!!

That's why I doubt and hope that isn't Prowl.

This is not G1. And for the first movie they were VERY flashy cars.
Razorclaw g1
omg.................thats sooooooo prowl!!!!!! cha-ching!

Prowl or not it's a really nice homage to him.

Now I'm just rabble-rousing, but I'm having fun.

ZOMG PROWL!

too blurry to tell but you never know.

Perhaps this is not the proper place to gripe, but for people who don't want the movie spoiled, can we not post this information on the front page.

It's one thing to have a news item on the front page that says something like 'blah blah new information has been found, please click here to discuss', but the front page display gives away everything - type of car/etc.
Incepticon
My guess is that it's just another not-so-subtle nod to G1 the same way the old VW in the first movie was.

I Love to See Prowl in this Movie and see him Fight off Against Barricade. Good Cop VS Bad Cop

Actually, as far as Police pursuit vehicles go Barricade was sorta... modest.

Honestly, nothing makes me think "OMG PROWL!!!", but I wouldn't be totally shocked if it wasn't him.
Aaron
Cool if it's Prowl.

Hell, cool if it isn't.
Eric
Let it be Prowl. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE. >_<
Heat Guy
Man, its so good to hear that there filming. Come on summer '09

i seriously doubt thats an autobot symbol. granted its blurry. but the autobot symbol is more squared off, that looks more like a shield/coat of arms type thing.

as for whether or not its prowl, its too early to really say, and there is not enough pictures of the car to give any hint one way or the other, we have one blurry pic of the side, and one pic of almost the back. so i'm saving judgement.

Modest? You can't tell me you've ever seen a Saleen S281 as a police car.

This is a very valid post. I think the mods here need to make an extra effort to really watch their wording & the pics they post on the frontpage so we don't get surprise spoilers again the same way we did with much of the news from the first movie. It would be nice to know some of us can still come to these boards for the next year without having to accidentially see spoilers staring us in the face.

Maybe it's a police car responding to an explosion at the steel works.
It's what's scanned by Prowl.
Railguard
Interesting...maybe its Prowl, maybe its just a car. I can't wait to see this movie, hopefully we get to see it at the same time as everyone else and not last.
Pauly T
If it's not Prowl, it's definitely an allusion to him.

And is there anybody here who knows what, if anything, the Chinese characters plastered on buildings mean, i.e. a translation?

This.

Even if it's not Prowl, $10 says there's a toy for it (called Prowl) like practically every other non-TF vehicle in the first movie. So buying that.
warriorpriest
To be or not to be Prowl. That is the question.......*wack!!* sorry was on the wrong channel. I guess we will have to wait for pics that are a little clearer to see if that is an autobot insignia or not. hummmmmmm........

It's pretty much bang-on to Alt Prowl, so in a way, we already own it.

No it's not... alt Prowl is a small hatchback.

Yeah, true. All the same, it still looks more like Alt Prowl (to me) than it does G1 or Classics Prowl. If I had to choose, that is
Hiro Prime
My vote would be for Prowl as well. Why? Cause I don't think there are too many Chinese Police cars that are Chevys. So It stands out as a bit odd to me.
Beastbot X
If it's Prowl, a versus between him and Barricade is a must.

If it's not Prowl, it's still a cool side nod.

Either way, it's win.

Honda Integra Type R/Acura RSX =/= Chevrolet Malibu
Wingsbr
My first thought was prowl. It would be cool, good cop vs. bad cop...
leadsled
personally i like the new malibu as a car....motor trend car of the year and all...

but...if the location is supposed to be in china or where ever....kinda odd they`d use an american car as a cop car....you`d think anyways.....

prowl or not its cool
dr.b
Malibu,right.I have it on good word from the the Bay Man himself that Prowl will be a rickshaw that will be pulled by a feudal peasant /cop that doesn't know any better,but is Prowl's own hologram which crushes the peasant when Prowl tells him,because he wanted to start a family.Jet Li or Chow Yun Fat will are both being considered.
llamatron
I see a few possibilities:

1) It's Prowl.

2) It's AZN-BARRICADE.

3) It's just a normal cop car that shows up.

I hope it's Prowl.
autobotx23
Yes!!! Prowl is in the house!!
bhaalistik
It's wishful thinking on my part, but I hope the next movie doesn't have ONE auto company under contract for the autobot designs (ala Chevy in the 1st movie). Wishful thinking I know, because from a monetary stand point, the one auto company is ponying up a CRAP LOAD of money to feature their cars and thus fund the movie....but MAN I would kill to see some Lamborghini action in the next movie.

...and me thinks that ain't Prowl...more wishful thinking =P
Zaraxion1021
Oh Yeah!! I hope it is Prowl!!
Mega-con
I'm guessing it's Prowl's first scan. Autobots/humans make fun of him and he scans a muscle car later, ala Bumblebee.
