    Look at this:
    [​IMG]
    In the blue segment there is the star circle of European Union on the top and the D stands for "Deutschland" (Germany). The "M" stands for Munich and the rest are individual letters and numbers.

    Now that we suposibly have 3 Stunticons how about this for Drag Strip:

    Sense of humor: do you have it? The joke is that we're used to seeing "to punish and enslave" on Barricade.

    Aha, you do have a sense of humor!

    With all these european vehicles, I wonder if this scene takes place in Europe. But why go to Chicago to shoot it? Downtown Chicago is awfully recognizable as an American city, even at street level. I initially thought they were pulling an Iron Man 2, and having a big European car race scene, but with Nascars?

    My theory is some of the autobots like perhaps Jolt go to Europe, and assume new altmodes, which are retained later in the film when they return to the US.

    I have a suspicion that this yellow car may also be a transformer, or at least a significant car in the film. It was seen on the same trailer as the Decepticon SUV, here.

    [​IMG]

    It's quite distinctive, and deliberately crappy. The fact that they've put a spoiler on the back makes me think that this is not just some random car.

    [​IMG]

    And they have two of them, which look to be identical. While it's understandable that they would have two very similar police cars, having two of these yellow cars is more unusual. That says to me that they've gone to the trouble of making a double, possibly for shooting stunt scenes.

    Also, they seem to have two of them. So it does appear like it has some sort of importance for them to have a spare.

    I'd love to see a Taxi Cab Autobot. That would be really cool.

    The 2 yellow cars can't be autobots or decepticons bec. the yellow cars are not shiny.

    So would I, but I don't think it actually is a Taxi. I believe it's just an old yellow car.

    That looked like it was Sam running out of the car and up into the building, so...It could be an autobot...Or just a crapy car he ends up stuck with because him and Bee had a fight?...Who knows.

    That's what I thought initially, but on closer inspection they don't appear to be taxis. I wish I could place the make and model, IMO it doesn't look like a US car.

    One theory I had was that with the filming in Russia and elsewhere, maybe Bumblebee temporarily assumes a different altmode. Total speculation of course.

    I would like to see a taxicab transformer at some point. I already got that minicon set just for 'Overcharge'. They should give him a promotion.

    Oooh it has the two black stripes... as the other thread says, could be a decoy, could be a downgrade. I quite like Bumblebee as a beat up car, I always prefered him as the 70's Camaro even in his bot mode.
