    Even though Michael Bay doesn't want him in the movies, I just see Grimlock.

    Has anyone spotted an Autobot or Decepticon symbol anywhere on the truck? Which reminds me, did anyone ever see the symbols for the Wreckers?

    If this is one of the Wreckers, I am going to vote towards a new character, or if Bay's in a good mood and want's to please TF fans, could this possibly be Kup?

    Now I'm convinced the stunticons are in the movie. This is Bay misdirection at his finest. Wreckers, my behind. Those were stunticon cars and this is Motormaster, else who the heck are the autobots battling in Chicago?

    I'm thinking Autobot, given the proximity it has been to the rest.

    My Picks:

    Ultra Magnus
    Kup
    Roadbuster

    Im almost sure hes gonna be a Wrecker....his aesthetic doesnt fit with the normal Autobots, It's definitely way too armored for a military fuel carrier....and as stated, hes really only been seen with the bots..


    addition to original post: I DL'd the photo and put it photoshop.....zoomed in the best I could, and it looks like the Mack Bulldog covered in blue. I was confused by that at first, but then, if you look in the background of one of the shots, you can see the Autobot Fire Engines boom on top has been covered in blue, also....

    I know I had said earlier it could possibly be Octane, but I can see this big tanker truck being Onslaught or Grimlock or even Motormaster, but the one I'd like to see other than Octane (and I know this is a real stretch considering the size of the tanker truck) is Brawn.

    unknown military fuel truck

    Suppose this is an Autobot, not a Decepticon. Possible names are: Landmine, Guzzle, Landquake, Ultra Magnus, Powertrain/Power Train.

    The NASCARs are armed to the teeth with guns all over them and all distorted. Autobots don't do that.

    It's Megatron that said no more disguises, no more secrecy. They are the ones that go into a populated area and start a visible conflict. Think the highway scene in movie 1.

    They are all Decepticons. The Autobots maintain their clean alt modes at all times. That's what I'm running with.

    I thought we all decided the NASCARs were Wreckers. You know, the guys who's job description involves things like "blow S### up" and "blow S### up"?

    The armed stock cars were confirmed to be Wreckers. Wreckers are Autobots that use more brutal methods when push comes to shove, so it makes sense that they were all armed. There are also pics and I think vids of the stock cars and regular Autobots filmed traveling in a convoy.

    The truck can still go either way. It could be a wrecker or it could be a Decepticon (IE: Scourge, Onslaught, Octane, some new name. etc)

    Landshark as a movie character would be neat. Other than that I have to think decepticon.

    That blue cloth is definitely covering a faction symbol, the question is: is it Decepticon or Autobot?

    It could be Wreck-Gar... or Motormaster. Really, it could be anyone, as this is Movieverse.

    Agreed :)  Ultra Magnus was the leader of the Wreckers on Cybertron during Shockwave`s rule in the G1 comics. There were originally 5 Wreckers however one of them dies in a battle on Cybertron in the comics.

    If Ultra Magnus is in this, as leader of the Wrecker`s, i wouldnt mind the look of the vehicle form. Oh, i did some enlarging of the hood ornament and it has the outline of an Autobot symbol. So whoever they are they are either Autobot or Anti-Autobot. Again i wouldnt be suprised if this is an Anti-Autobot Vehicle, but that would suck.
