    Could the black and red car be dead end (ie the deluxe dead end from the rotf line) just in a different car mode?

    Ha! I remember posting a picture i had found of filming where this car was on set and pointed out it's most likely a TF due to the modified look all these cars have.

    Yeah, but his was still a cybertronain tripple changer, so it was a lot easier to get around the design then figureing out how to get one earth vehicle to shift to another earth vehicle, and a robot.

    In CGI, it's probably possible, cause you could cheat a lot. The problem, I would think, comes up when you try and do that in toy form.

    I think we all might be jumping the gun with this astro train thing...I don't think people should be getting their hopes up. I wonder what it is though, the first thing that came to my mind was a ship for the autobots or the decepticons. There have been small rumors that the autobots are getting a ship. But idk...we have to wait for more info.

    And That chevy Impala just screams dead end. I really wish they would use him. But I have a feeling its not gonna happen

    I went back to Packard Plant and Michigan Central Station. I didn't see as much security as yesterday. Nor, did it appear much was going on at either place. The extra's lot was empty. The few security guards that were there kept asking me what I was doing and someone drove by me with my son and took pictures of us then drove off before I could say anything.

    But here are some more pics.

    Yesterday, we spotted this Mercedes-Benz 722 on the lot. They had it street side with guards around it so I couldn't really get a great shot.

    Here's a better look of the Decepticon emblem on the Suburban

    I'm guessing the NB on the license plate of the Chevelle stands for Non-Biological.

    It's a Historical Plate

    SOS - Historical Plates

    Historical and authentic license plates
    Michigan has a long and proud history as the automotive center of the world. Many residents enjoy restoring and collecting vintage automobiles, trucks and motorcycles. Since 1956, the state has issued historic and authentic license plates for antique vehicles used in parades, fairs, car shows, swap meets and other events.

    Historical vehicles
    A historical vehicle must be:

    More than 25 years old
    Owned solely as a collector's item
    Used only for events such as historical club activities, parades and car show
    Note: A vehicle registered with a historical plate cannot be used for routine transportation.

    why couldnt triple changer be bot form/earth vehicle mode/ cybertronian mode
    i think they could make em work that way....possibly.

    i love the fact where seeing more and more new things too at each location its like we get at least one or two cars or more at each loacation which is awsome. i like the possibility of a massive massive battle with larger amounts of bots.

    If there are two of them, and they are identical and look flawless, that suggests they might be robots. Hopefully its Magnus!

    I hope too, but the truck is too "simple" to be Magnus.

    I believe it was proven that the truck is used to haul the cars. if there are two of them companies tend to have more than one truck to haul multiple vehicles. I used to work with a towing and auto transport company.
