    It's method acting. Their theater class told them to practice dramatics by "pretend to care about Battletrap's name".

    Video quality is weird quality of cellphone good video like these movies they change as cartoons do not everything is g1 same with energon cybertron series., I knew there be some people who don’t like wheeljack as van allready complaints and more to come never accept change in movies but always accpet change in cartoon series

    Optimus is not in disguise to much I can see his logo in plain sight in videos of him to mich attention himself

    no

    how is to many characters different from animated movie , animated movie have more characters compare to live action movies people are very one sided with these live action movies it’s g1 it sucks wheeljack van, learn accept change people accpet change no problem with prime be fire truck in energon that’s nothing g1 at all but wheeljack is van people cry and complain always one sided always complain about movies never accpet good things movies have done made transformers popular again made new fans.,

    g1 is dead move on let it go want g1 movie watch animated

    name doesn’t make transformer it’s not like there’s name post on cars starscream name is out of place

    not everything needs be g1 in these movies g1 is dead move on with your life done and over moves are made bring in new and old fan together where was your comment when prime was fire truck energon series will suck prime is fire truck not semi truck

    really people not everything needs be g1, g1 wasn’t perfect otherwise bumblebee would have billion easy if it’s not g1 does it automatically suck not you can accpet change to prime as fire truck but comments like this never accept change in movies goes both ways let g1 die it’s done and and over get on with your life move on cartoon sand comics are not g1 anymore.,

    these movies are made for old and NEW fans want g1 watch cartoon movie and series

    Wheeljack is... a van? Again, I\'m no geewunner, but there\'s kind of a base for things, imo. Like how Iron Man has a suit of armor, Captain America has a shield, and Spider Man shoots webs. Optimus is a truck, Ironhide is a van, and Wheeljack is a car. Beast Wars is an exception of course, because there are no vehicles, and it\'s centered around animals. Understandably, having a racecar cruising the streets isn\'t much of a disguise, but there are plenty of other super cars from that decade to choose from. I guess it makes sense that he would be a maintenance van, but there isn\'t even any green.

    Honestly it would've made an alright Ratchet alt-mode as well, given he's also been a tinkerer.

    It works for Wheeljack seeing as he turned into a van in the first episode of G1.

    I think it's less about the fact Wheeljack's car mode is not a good disguise and more about the fact that as a movie with a limited cast the director likely wanted a good variety of alternate modes and decided that a Van and a red bike would add variety to the presence of the characters of the film instead of having everyone be sporty cars (which they wouldve been if Arcee and Wheeljack had both kept vehicle modes that are accurate to the 80s incarnations).

    Plus in all honesty, Wheeljack's car mode never really fit his character personality, a VW Van is not only alot more "goofy and unassuming" this particular one even has been customized with a paint job that is advertising for some kind of electronic repair company, which goes hand-in-hand with Wheeljack's inventor/handy with tools character.

    Yep

    100% agreed

    1000%

    Actually it was more white and gray:

    I'd be okay assuming the green/orange was dictated by his alt mode.

    This times a million! He's a mechanic!

    If he still has a G1-ish robot mode and ESPECIALLY voice, I'm okay with him not being a Lancia at all.

    Then again, there could be some green accents added into what the robot mode will be. Just because it's not in the vehicle modes doesn't mean it can't be in the robot. We dunno yet

    Just another example of the blatant hipocracy and how people think names actually mean anything anymore.

    I mean, ROTB Battletrap almost certainly will not be a Duocon, the fact people seem to think the name means anything is kind of amazing when literally in the same confirmation, Wheeljack is a VAN and somehow people are shocked and outraged over this.

    And of course the whole Mirage/Jazz problem where people keep ignoring Jazz's entire existence in this franchise and pretend it's entirely about people wanting Mirage to be an F1 car - which it never was but hey, how about those double standards plainly on display here?

    Fake as heck. If you reverse Google search that image, it was actually from someone who saw a Spider-Man No Way Home screening (at least supposedly). And even more telling than that...they wouldn't do a test screening while the movie is still being filmed.

    It's nice to get confirmation on the van being Wheeljack. I've come around on the idea as long as his robot mode is fairly consistent with his appearance in Bumblebee since that will be the case with all the other returning bots. I still dislike all the brown on him but if they use it in the way I suggested in an earlier post, I think it could work and would really lean into the inventor/mechanic aspect of Wheeljack.

    Battletrap is such a random choice. It would be really cool if he remains a duocon but that's probably unlikely unless his flying other half will be completely cgi(which is probably the case for any flying characters we're going to get). Given that Battletrap is a nobody and a character I didn't even know existed until potp, I don't have an issue with this.

    Dragon is always like that tho. I suspect English isn't his mother tongue and the lack of punctuations doesn't help either

    Aw... Honestly, I was hoping the VW Type 2 Bus was Ironhide, and that green car (Ford Escort variant?) was Wheeljack. Ironhide is an old warrior, and that fits the beat up VW van better, and Wheeljack being a mechanic would transform into something more sporty. He is the cybertronian equivelant to an old car guy.

    So in The Last Night they filmed a VW Van and a tow truck.

    In this film they have a VW Van and a tow truck. At least now we know they will keep the van this time since it’s Wheeljack.
