    After watching AOE for the second time last night, I was pretty sure that when Shane arrives at the Yeager's barn driving a chevrolet , the moment we see the chevrolet (named Rollbar in the toyline) stopping at the field , there's clearly no driver in it !! Later on during the chase with the Cemetery Wind guys, Shane says something like he doesn't know how he's driving like that it's like a driving at a whole new level for him !! I was expecting the chevrolet to be a transformer taking control of his driving and maybe transforming at the time but saddly nothing happened!! What u guys think about that??

    There was no driver in that scene. I was waiting for him to get up thinking he was hiding :) 
    I also think that when he hit that guy with the tire, that there is no driver as well.

    Yeah a lot of us caught all if that too. Its clear that the Sonic was meant to be a TF at some point early on in production and was probably cut. Even GM confirmed the Sonic as a TF.

    If that was Rollbar, in that chase scene, then Shane had no purpose in the movie whatsoever. He was supposed to be a racecar driver and now all he did was driving backwards in Hong Kong:lol

    I think that was deliberate diversion tactics to make us think it was a TF, especially after the whole thing with the car be in the 'favourite TF' poll. If they were going to have it as a character and then cut him at the last minute I'm pretty sure he'd have a proper deluxe figure and not just a random repaint on another Generations figure. Seems like they were doing a reverse Soundwave trick on us with this one!

    I think that 'there was no driver' when the Sonic rolled up at the Yeager's because they wanted the audience to be all like 'who's that?'

    Yep... we've been trolled by Bay over that scene. We've been accustomed to vehicle-being-transformer in such an introduction scene in previous instalments, I'd guess Bay decided to be cheeky this time around.

    Maybe Shane wanted the baddies to think it was an abandoned car?

    Or maybe it was a TF, and he transformed- right before he was killed so we didn't see him.
