Ive been sayong they were giving barricade his G1 colors for months now
I have too lol. The whole aesthetic of the movie is very G1.
So, the red Plymouth might be
and the black car possibly
if the prequel comics relate that directly to the movie itself.
The prequel 1st comic name droped Wildrider at one point not that it will carry over and mean something.
Wait, it’s Diabla right? As in Diabla from the scrapped Transformers: Universe game? I’ve been hoping characters from that game would start to show up in other media! That’s awesome!
I just looked at the comic and have a feeling none of those Deceptions will be in the movie though. As far as we know there’s no yellow cars and the Diabla appears more orange to me than red.
Yeah, autocorrect strikes again! All three Decepticons in the comic have the same basic design, which says to me that they were done specifically for the comic. Or at least two of them were based on one that might be on the movie.
I really hope the gtx is diabla she's seems pretty awesome
Yeah, I have a feeling these characters won’t be in the movie. They all look way more Bay in design than Bee or Starscream.
New Deceptions? Let the spectaculation begin!
I stand corrected, the red Deception in the picture I previously posted does look very much like Diabla from the comic.
Ones called Dropkick that's interesting because he's been around since 07
Here’s a clearer picture that was just posted. Apparently the red one is a femcon named Shatter and the blue one a Deception named Dropkick. Gotta say, not the characters I was hoping for, but they look cool.
Now we just need confirmation on barricade
This also makes me wonder if that seeker is screamer and not someone else that dies early on because that would make four cons to one bot
No the seeker is definitely Starscream. I’m thinking these two will die. They’re not well known characters and they aren’t in the other movies.
Dropkick was a comic character in 07
And then between 07 - 09
Was retooled into salvage and blowpipe
Glad they didn't make the blue car Barricade, since he's not a police car.
It does raise some interesting questions about Barricade though. I just went back and watched that Jess Harnell video, and it seems more vague than I remember. I thought he straight up confirmed that he was in the movie, but he really doesn't. Maybe Barricade doesn't appear after all, or just appears as a cameo.
I posted this on another thread but here's my theory:
I think Shatter transforms/combines with Dropkick into a Harrier Jump Jet. Compare those slits around the jet's intakes with Shatter's shoulder pieces. Even the landing gear fork are the same shape.
Can't deny the similarities, but hopefully it's a miniature Harrier and not a full-size one.
Separate names with a comma.
