    Sorry seen too many of these in the movies now to give this design the benefit of the doubt LOL. I do not hate all the movie designs but similiar things were said of Skids/Mudflap/Jetfire and after seeing them in action I still think they are terrible designs and detracted from the movie (especially Skids/Mudflap). I'm sure this char will be more of the same...

    I wonder if this car was Einstein in the history of the TF verse...like a hologram or something. >_> Who knows!? I somehow doubt Jolt will be in this film, Bay may have forgotten he existed, like Barricade.

    Soooo, every chance the Merc will be Wheeljack - complete with absent-minded-professor mannerisms and "hilarious" Hollywood Germanic Accent. Should go nicely with the Italian accent for the Ferrari-bot, and the "black" accent for the Twins, no? *Facepalm*

    Whatever. Show us the robot designs, that's all we're in it for.

    LOL this is what I was going for. <Insert new stereotype bot here>

    On another note --> what are the chances of this being a reformat of the doctor from ROTF or something? Probably not but it's a thought.

    So this is probably Wheeljack. Well I pray to God that You are voiced by Christopher Lloyd.

    I can already tell that this character is probably going to be a comic relief. We don't need that right now

    I don't care who this is as long as I can add a TF Benz to my collection next summer. Awesome car.

    I agree. My first impression of the Einstein bot is a bad one. I really don't like that design right now but I'm hoping my opinion will change once I see it in action (whichever bot it ends up being).

    I agree with you man. Jolt was some horrible after thought and didn't do anything in the movie. No point in bringing him back.

    I think the Einstein look fits Wheeljack well if you go by his G1 characterisation. Wheeljack was a mad scientist!

    I can't help but feel he's either a Transformer with Einstein's brain...or he's Perceptor.

    Anyone else a tad disturbed/offended they made Einstein-esque robot into a German car? Ignoring the fact that, as a Pacifist, making him into a fighting robot is sorta iffy already, but Einstein was also Jewish.

    I sense backlash, ala Twins, in the future.
