    I can understand car companies not wanting their vehicles as bad guys, but look at Barricade, Sideways, Soundwave and of course Stinger. Damn did their vehicle/bot modes look great! So they should really understand that for fans, evil cars are just as awesome as hero cars, and for perhaps some of the non-fan audience.

    Yeah, if I was a rich bastard and I watched a movie where a Lamborghini Aventador ate a VW Beetle, I would buy that car in a heart beat!

    Bay's a nice guy. I know people hate him a lot, but he has his heart in the right place. :)

    "Meanwhile, Daimler Trucks North America supplied a 2014 Freightliner Argosyfor one of the villains (rumored to be Nemesis Prime)."

    a little late to try and hide who that is........

    It would look bad if one car from another company kills another car from another company.

    You mean how a Saleen (Barricade) killed Mercedies (Que) or how Camara (Bee) killed Mercedies (Soundwave) or any number of others? No it don't look bad. It's all business lol.

    Glad that car companies finally see what these films can do to their profits and are letting Bay and company use various types of vehicles for the characters.

    I completely agree. In all the behind the scenes footage he seems really nice.

    I agree as well, though, it was funny when he lost his cool during the filming of ROTF and flipped out on those soldier extras.

    That was pretty funny, but you can't help but feel bad for the extras. Everyone losses their cool at one point or another :)

    It's rather a shame the article writer didn't know anything about Transformers.

    No, Optimus's 1980s toy form was based on a Freightliner. Laser Optimus Prime from G2 (in the 1990s) was a Western Star.

    Pretty sure I read an old article where Bay said that Freightliner wanted nothing to do with the 2007 film, and that the crew had to get the trucks themselves. Western Star was much more accommodating. I guess maybe Freightliner has come around too.

    Oh yeah, I didn't even think of this. Very good point! That would be pretty bad.
