    Cool firetruck, but so much for less robots. Not going to get much screentime with 13 possible autobots unless half of them die. I actually hope its RED ALERT

    My guess with the other folks is that it's Grimlock, and that red-headed bot we saw before is his head. It kind of looks like Dinobot's head.

    Not Inferno? Ok, that stumped me. If it was an unimportant extra, they would have just given him the most apropos name for his vehicle mode (ref: Jolt).

    Pish, these spoilers keep throwing curveballs. I had the white truck pegged as Ultra Magnus...

    I don't think it's prime but what they could do to improve leader primes is have the trailer, the same tech used to connect OP's torso to legs,when in truck mode you conect the trailer to the back.

    Im hoping for Inferno or Hot Spot....yeah, I know, it cant be Hot Spot his GeeWON colors are blue....but this is Bayformers and there is more than meets the paint scheme...


    As for the fire truck, thats an Airport Heavy Rescue / Fire Suppression. The 'water gun' (also known in the fire service as a master stream or deluge gun) is a AAAF Fire supression foam nozzle with piercing attatchment, on a 30 - 50 foot collapsable boom. Its used to smother fire by piecing the hull of a jet and injecting the high expansion water/foam mixture. Also, I noticed on the front of the truck is another deluge style gun, this time with (most likely) an airrator foam nozzle. This would be used for jet fuel spills that have ignited and provides a foam spray which blankets the fuel.

    The vehicle itself is VERY military styled, minus the custom paint. This type of apparatus is seen ALOT on military bases, usually in camo. By the paint job (red & black) is traditional of Chicago Fire Apparatus. Im guessing their going to probably bill him as hanging out around the Chicago Airport (O'Hare, I think).

    Fine by me. Hopefully the twins won't be coming back either. Those things really should have been eaten up by Devastator.

    and you know, Nelson has denied it being Inferno, Pyro or Hot Spot, but with all the speculations of Ultra, he never said anything. possibility is quite high

    ^THIS^

    Though I've been reading a lot of Rodimus Primes mentioned. That might be cool too see in the movie. Which is why it's not going to happen...

    If I had to pick one character, I'd say it's Blurr. :lol 

    In all seriousness, I don't really care who it is. I just want to know who it is.

    That is a very big firetruck, well at least compared to the cars around it.

    Hrmm, a shame it's not Pyro or Inferno, i'd have loved to see them represented in the live-action films.

    If it's a prominent character well known, and deemed to 'shock' fans like flame-on-Optimus did, I would lend speculation to some of the following names:

    Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime (freeing up the Ferrari for someone else)
    Superion
    Ultra Magnus
    Grimlock
    Firestar
    Flareup
    Hot Shot
    Red Alert

    Nelson - can you specifically debunk Firestar, Flareup, Hot Shot or Red Alert?

    Its Ultra Magnus I am 99% sure it is him,and with that I bet that red ferrari is Hot Rod or
    Rodimus,since this is the last movie that we know of and Hasbro probably wanted Magnus
    and Roddy in this last movie.BTW I can't wait to see what they look like in bot form.


    PS.

    Notice how we know the names for most of the characters,like the blue/purple car is
    "Q",Rosey H. Whiteley is Carly,and so forth,but they don't tell us the name of the red
    ferrari,coz I am sure they know we know its Rodimus.
