    I just figured they'd be transporting them not based on faction, but based on them being in the same scene together, which to me would indicate an introduction at about the same point in the film. To me, that seems to imply affiliation. I agree though, I'm aching to see new pics of these trucks. We still don't have a clear look at either vehicle, I want to see as many shots of them as Mirage got!

    If Megatron were to appear on ROTB
    Does anyone think that his design would be similar to that of this little toy? it's part of the Bumblebee movie. IMG_20210906_174613.jpg

    postscript: I love the size scale it would have with Optimus.

    To use a redsh Topkick with black stripes, bring up Ironhide by both producer and director, would be the ultimate fuck you to the fans of both G1 and Bayverse.

    I'm in the complete opposite camp.

    I hope to god this isn't how they scale.

    I think there's almost zero percent chance it's Ironhide. Judging from all context clues, this is a Terrorcon. Possibly Scourge's right hand man.

    Fifty fifty? Sure. Zero percent? Not likely.

    Ehhhh I think even a 10% chance is pretty generous.

    Let's be real, there's almost no reason to think it's Ironhide beyond it vaguely being a similar truck, and vaguely being a reddish color. I think the case is much stronger for it to be a Terrorcon, i.e. being transported together with Scourge, and being similar in visual aesthetic, like the blower, the ram guard, and being dusty and not clean.

    To be fair, it's not just a vaguely similar looking truck, but it's actually an earlier model of Topkick...the truck Ironhide turned into. I think that fact makes Ironhide at least within the realm of plausibility. That being said, the movies have used the same type of vehicle for multiple characters...Sideswipe and Crosshairs were both Corvettes. So that's definitely not any sort of definitive proof.

    Also, I'm pretty sure this truck is a tow truck. There were pictures of two trucks covered with a tarp from the back, and the one that looked like Scourge wasn't a tow truck (meaning this is probably the tow truck). Which doesn't really scream Ironhide. If I had to stake money on something, I'd probably also lean towards saying this is a Terrorcon. Maybe a boss for Bumblebee to fight, judging by the racing stripes. Ironhide would probably be my second guess though, mostly because it's a Topkick.

    So let's be probabilistic about this and break this up into 2 possible outcomes. A) It is Ironhide b) it is a Terrarcon. Obviously it can be more, BUT for the sake of this discussion lets limit it to 2.

    Pro for Terrocon
    1. Terrorcons are in the movie.

    Pro for Ironhide
    1. Its a GMC Topkick. Every other reoccurring character has maintained a unique vehicle mode(s) from previous movies
    2. Ironhide has been mentioned as beloved character by director
    3. Ironhide has been mentioned as a beloved character by producer

    Now admittedly I'm not weighting variables/columns/vatiable inputs nor am I putting statistical power (sample/evidence size) into consideration, BUT based on the evidence we have RIGHT NOW I'd say Ironhide is way higher than 0% to 10%.

    It's not Ironhide. Even Mirage had a similar colour scheme to his G1 car mode, except it's not an F1 car. If they did make it Ironhide, it would be a "fuck you" to the fans of G1 and Bayverse (which is funny)
    As for the truck's identity, most likely Mega-Octane or Sweep.
