Transformers 3 Sideswipe Confirmed As A Convertible

Posted on 06-19-2010 at 07:44 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Looks like it's not Bumblebee who's getting his top off. Thanks to YouTube user nando323, we now have a confirmation on the new model design of Corvette Stingray (Vehicle mode of movie Sideswipe). The "new" Convertible Sideswipe was spotted during a Transformers 3 filming in L.A, alongside his Autobot buddies; Bumblebee and the Ferrari 458 Italia. Hasbro will be happy. Since Mattel took the rights to manufacture toys based on the regular Stingray (which explains why we are getting Aston Martin DB9 shaped Sideswipe RPMs and Lotus Elise shaped Deluxe Sidearm Sideswipes), Hasbro now can own the rights to deliver toys based on the new model.

Checkout the filming video, below:

sideswipe has already been known to be in the next film, there has been several news updates of the beautiful stingray concept car on set

^ I've only seen the one with the corvette concept being spotted near beverly hills. However, I don't think it was truly confirmed it was sideswipe. I believe this is the first time we see him with the other vehicles...Also i think its the first video with Bumblebee, the Ferrari and Sideswipe in action....

Edit:

Oh I didn't see that Cyclonus86 made his own thread. Mods you can delete this thread if you want.

Word.

I was shocked and excited at the same time when I saw this. Although the convertible looks weirder than the original, it's still a cool-looking car IMO. I also thought it was neat to see Sideswipe and the red Ferrari with Bumblebee; maybe Sideswipe will get much more screen time since he's spotted with one of the most popular Autobots?

I hope the Ferrari (I'm assuming Hot Rod or Cliffjumper) gets some good screen time as well.

Also, does anyone have a single clue as to what's going on in the scene? Ok, some humans run across the street and the Autobots storm off. Criminals being chased? Something suspicious? I have no clue.

Surely Swipe will have to have a holodriver now in the movie.
Not that I mind, holodrivers are cool.

there are 3 suits that come out running of the building, but 1 of the 3 goes into bumblebee's passenger seat

It looks like Sideswipe may actually have a bigger role in this movie! I hope that Ferrari is Hot Rod.
Shatterpoint
Ferrari = Windcharger,Swerve,Hot Rod or Red Tracks

Not necessarily. The secret is out the the Transformers are Earth. Seeing a car drive itself would not freak out people like it did Sam in the first one. People simply assume it's a Transformer.

You know I was wondering about that after I saw the RPM the other day. That is odd.
It'll be interesting to see how they work out the convertible design into a Deluxe. Maybe they'll work the seats into his legs like with Universe Hound.

I immediately wondered why RPM Sideswipe wasn't the Stingray, but it looked cool anyway & now that I hear it's actually an Aston Martin, I think it's an upgrade, haha!

Gues what I called that hotel the barclay and they said that they where filming 2 or 3 weeks ago

Mr. Jesus-Whips is too busy being awesome to be spotted before the movie is released.

It is nice to see Sideswipe being used in more conventional ways, similar to how Bumblebee, Skids, and Mudflap were together for most of the movie. In ROTF, he was really limited to just being a soldier/fighter, but now there might be some chances for characterization.

Hard to tell who the red car will be. I'd like to think it's Hot Rod, but being red doesn't lock it in to red G1 characters. Maybe it's Prowl. Hell, it could be a different Arcee. It worked for Devastator.
FanimusMaximus
Who is the red one?
onslaught314
I'm curious as to how they're gonna be shooting them, cuz they need some way to hide the drivers won't they? Holograms? hmm...(:

You know what'd be funny is if it was movie Tracks. Just to spite the fans that whined about Sideswipe being the corvette.

For some reason I foresee this becoming a fairly big negative point for fans about TF3 if they don't end up giving him a holo-driver.

That is unless Bay just plays the government cover up card again, like in ROTF proceeding from the last film. No, it wouldn't make much sense...But then transformer fiction hardly does half the time.

Wow, I'm really liking the Corvette convertible. Better sideswipe than Bee.
Does it look like its Shia as one of the men running out?
grimlock1972

No it isn't. Did you look at the new pics of Sidearm Sideswipe? Last I looked, it was the new Stingray.





HUH???
[Wing_Saber-X]
Ferrari = bad-ass! :
Starscreamownz
I think the guy who gets into Bee is Sam. Also for those shitt0rs to run out of the hotel I guess a decepticon like, blew something up.
G1Jetfire
It might be over-analyzing, but since the red Ferrari is in front in a leader position, it could be Rodimus. But I hope it's actually Wheeljack, which seems to make the most sense to me. After all Wheeljack had "Allitalia" stickers. and this is an "Italia" Ferrari. Other possibilities are Hot Rod, Sunstreaker, Tracks, Mirage, one of the mini-bots, or one of the Datsun twins (Prowl, Streak, Smokescreen). I didn't read any spoiler news so I could be a little to way off.

Speaking of holograms, I hope Hound is in the movie, as well as that kick ass Motormaster Kenworth truck we saw on here a few days ago.
Shadow25
I'm curious as to how they'll handle driving the convertible. I suppose the most logical route is to give Sideswipe a hologram driver as Arcee had.

I meant "Shaped", not "based on the real thing".

Take a look at this link I found. The resemblance is remarkable.

I foundout that the reason is Mattel Hot Wheels Rights For The Corvette Stingray Concept. I think there's a pic of it above.

cosmos360
not sure if this has been mentioned, but the red ferrari is in front, he's even in front of bumblebee, i think whoever this is they're going to be a high ranking autobot.

also, that man who gets into bumblebee does look like it could be sam, who else would get in bumblebee, just not sure why he got into the passenger seat
Spoiler
While I was really hoping Sideswipe wasn't going convertible...I will give the benefit of the doubt, because of how much I like Movie Sideswipe.
cosmos360
hang on every one..... i've just watched the video again and seen something weird..... no one was driving sideswipe.

EDIT: no, wait, it's OK, iv'e just seen the top of the mans head. not exactly a good thing though, this means Transformers aren't real, Nooooooooooooo.

Ferrari- Diaclone Sunstreaker!

I thought that too as I imagined all the nerd rage that would create

Who f*cking cares about Jolt??? Seriously? Some major complaints have been addressed only to be met with only more complaints...I'm not surprised but man it's f*%$ing sad.

I bet he is in Bay's Unwanted list like the Acree twins.

Sweet, I like convertibles and Sideswipe looks ace!
Wasn't there a rumor the Ferrari was gonna be a fembot?
