    I'm calling it right now, spike truck is Sixshot, and all six modes are 18 wheelers.

    Whoooo, is this for real? Ultra Magnus! A chance for another new mold? Come on Bay, make my dream come true! Now I'm speechless, hehee.
    Now Shockwave will have his rival just like the Dreamwave comic.

    That looks very cool, but sadly, the media here in Chicago is reporting that a female extra/driver was seriously hurt during filming today. Hope she is ok.

    ya thats deff not op.

    the thing is if there going to do a full bluescreen op truck it would be the op truck.
    deff thinking this is a third truck and its deff not the fuel truck(its not called the spike truck).

    well find out sooner or later.

    also theres a odd blue screen contraption on the front of the truck or holding it in place i cant tell.


    lol well with the pic in the post above me i guess it is a third truck and from the looks of it its Ultra Magnus.......becuase that deff dosent have a bluescreen on it no more lol. but i dunno the bluescreen truck and this truck still dont match...oooo the confusion lol

    Could be just for a special effects shot, not necessarily a TF.

    The two blue trucks one is optimus in shape at least the other is a completely differant model. One thing to note is the exhaust is at the back of the truck cabin as where on optimus its just behind the doors before the cabin.

    This truck is not optimus but maybe they just needed a larger CGI reference so they chose a larger truck in since optimus maybe half transformed ?!!? maybe

    but there are definately two differant blue trucks and one only has blue on painted areas which would denote maybe only some fx work on the exterior if it isnt a blue truck chracter

    well, if the Datsun really is Bumblebee in an Alt-Disguise Mode then maybe the Cement Trailer Semi could be Optimus with G1 Trailer in an Alt-Disguise Mode as well

    PS, having a shiney blue truck completely defeats the purpose of being able to comp it out in post. It has to be as matte as possible so the compositors can key it out, and all those little white highlights and reflections make it difficult.

    I know that one is matte blue while this one is all shiney and chromed out. Still confused. Oh, and what are the chances that this is just a private vehicle rolling past the set?

    hmmmm, a few ofthese accusations are "Probable" but others make no sence at all. I saw one that saide optimus vs motomaster, and another that said "hmmm, maybe its magnus, its a different shape than optimus so it cant be him"...thats purpstorous. magnus maaayyyyyyy (that beingf a big if) be in the movie, but if they need the exact shape of a cgi base, the cardboard heads would be usless unless they are actual heads. i think theyre just finally putting optimus on a vehicle battle scene (something theyve yet to do which would be cool for a small one in the last movie, just to give prime some more action here and there) but i cant seem to make out the other cars so i cant say for sure what it is, but i think its jsut optimus' base for a cgi battle scene. and they wouldnt ude the real one because it looked liek there was an explosion set up down the road, so they wouldnt risk harming the show cars.

    That's cool and all but what I want to know is this. Why does every idiot insist on using that ******ed f'ing song for their youtube videos? There are other songs in existence! Rant over...

    In VFX, it's called a "buck," a stand-in of the same shape usually used in pyro effects.

    There is no way that is an autobot, notice the truck slamming carelessly into human civilian cars....an autobot would not do that esp prime. So its either its a human driven truck or its a con.

    they are 2 difrend kind of trucks

    the blue truck in the beginning of the video is atleast ultra magnus!(look closely to the back and think of the g1 ultra magnus)

    the GGI truck is devely a decepticon i think motormaster or octane atleast a decepticon

    thats my opinion and this is a scene like optimus prime and bonechusser in transformers more than meets the eye(or TF1) i guess so
    but the blue optimus prime truck in the beginning is ultra magnus i sure of that
