    No, it's not. It's the generator truck for the shoot. It's part of the crew. You can even see the cables hooked up to it.

    hard to say if the hogs breath is motormaster. when i walked around the truck was on the side parked, being charged or something along with other semis with trailers. used for equipment. but at the same time, that mean looking logo and the only truck WITHOUT a bed...seems weird. so who knows. i'm thinking about going back tomorrow (sunday) but i'm sure we'll see more pics...

    Generator trucks often don't have trailers with them when on set. It's not uncommon. The hog logo is probably the company logo of whomever they rented the vehicle from. It would make a logical logo, as those things can get hot and can produce a fair amount of exhaust when running.

    You know, I don't think the Stunticons are involved. The car with the machine guns on the roof is possibly Lockdown.

    I think there's some small reason to think the gold truck is a NEST command truck.

    I wonder if that odd trailer is in the movie - or if Optimus is just doing donkey work and movie some gear for the filming behind the scenes gear.

    I like that the shape of the rear of the tail of the trailer matches the rear bumper of Optimus' Tractor unit- nice touch that.

    But Ironhide seems to have lost his NEST Number plate he had in ROTF.

    I wonder if the plate on the Ferrari "CT 41401" is a hint on who it is.....

    Nothing springs to mind. :confused: 

    Re: Prime's trailer, I think it gets destroyed, there was a video posted somewhere of him driving around a corner at high speed with trailer intact then just after he's gone round the corner you see a massive explosion coming from where he would be.


    There's also been reports of him driving around with a flatbed trailer covered in junk with pyrotechnics going off on the trailer and bits of the junk shooting off.

    So I reckon the trailer gets totaled by some currently non existent Con, but they're still shooting at it afterwards... obviously there's something inside...

    I have a feeling that this scene could be the opening of the movie, like the Shanghai scene.

    Also, I don't see any Decepticon logos on those NASCAR cars.

    I wonder if it could provide a clue to Ferrari bot's identity too, but... nothing comes to mind.

    What would be a nice touch would be if each Nascar stock racer used the car's RL driver as a hologram.

    The more I think about it, the more I don't see the Mercedes being Jolt, for several reasons. First of all, it's a product placement by GMC. They put the Volt in ROTF because they wanted it to be a product featured in the movie. I doubt that they would allow Bay to change that character's alternate mode, much less to a non-GMC car. The second reason is because the Volt is part of Jolt's character. His theme is electricity, and it's an electric car.

    Maybe they want to kill Jolt in vehicle mode but GM doesn't want them to destroy the Volt on screen.

    This is what I said in another thread also when there was posted a pic of a pile of smoldering metal that...to me...looks like the remains of Primes trailor


    Here is what the flatbed with concrete thing is supposed to look like I THINK. When Prime is driving straight you can't see that lower flatbed explosion goes off concerete goes flying off the flatbed but it looks like the street exploded behind Optimus.
