    If Mirage turns out to be reskinned Jazz in bot mode then I’m gonna start questioning the creative decisions of Paramount.

    That could be it. I remember "Slingshot" was a working name for Crosshairs while they were filming AOE.

    Possible, but "anti authority Autobot who argues with Optimus" does feel more like a Mirage thing, so I personally was thinking of how Travis Knight said he made the seeker look like Starscream and gave Bee a jeep alt mode for a bit because he wanted visual imagery that was familiar to the old show, so I wonder if this director went like "oh, if Mirage can't be a race car, i'll give him an alt mode that also looks like something from the old show".

    Wow when I see that Porche I immediately think of Jazz, wish they would have chosen a different car or a different character, I hope (uhoh monkey paw) that's Glyph.

    BTW, most of these pictures seem to be from the set at and around Dorchester Square in Downtown Montreal, if anyone nearby wants to visit. Filming should be wrapping up tonight, according to this sign I saw:

    PXL_20210709_175927812.jpg

    And they'll finish dismantling the set by the 15th, according to these signs they have placed everywhere:

    PXL_20210709_172550293.jpg

    Also, looks like it might have been more appropriate to post this in the RISE OF THE BEASTS SET PHOTOS, LEAKS, AND INTERVIEWS THREAD, where Music had already posted a transcript of the script. Sorry, guys.

    Plot twist, all autobots start as VW beetles and then scan other cars. Watch at the end of the film a fleet of VW beetles in various colors come rushing in.

    Now I'm thinking Caple is just teasing us and Mirage will scan an F1 alt mode towards the end of the film. The reason I say this is because Mirage apparently also has an alt mode of a blue VW Bug (aka Bee's alt mode) as confirmed by Protoman.

    Wasn’t there something mentioned about the character taking multiple disguises during the initial info dump?

    This is my suspicion. I think that this was either supposed to be Jazz or a new character with Porsche alt-mode. Then marketing hopped in and decided to play on nostalgia and attachments, thus Porsche got gray and blue colors, and, because "Jazz died like 10 ago!" they had to pick up the next name on the list of sport car Autobots. I wouldn't be surprised if this Mirage doesn't have holographic powers or uses them only once for five seconds (on DVD as a bonus scene).

    I'm sorry but THAT is JAZZ.
    Paramount/Hasbro can nameslap this guy all they want, but that is Jazz.

    If this was connected to the Bayverse (which I don't think it will be), then Jazz wouldn't have died yet.

    To be fair, he also turns into a VW Beetle here...

    People will get paranoid and they're going to assume every blue vehicle at the set is another Mirage disguise.

    Plus, does "anti authority Autobot who argues with Optimus" sound at all like Jazz to you?

    maybe this is jazz, mirage uses his mirages (hire me, shareholders) to imitate him and bumblebee's alt modes but in blue, he looks like g1 mirage and this is more than wishful thinking?

    i mean, we really do know fuckall relatively...

    I’m not sure if this should only stay in the Set photos thread, but this seems extremely news worthy to me.

    This has been reported by @Lord Person 0C706E8C-3126-4954-ADFB-9A7225441DAE.jpeg 2937E813-BAA0-45BC-A534-CE4BDACABEF2.jpeg and translated by @Music

    Hence my request for Paramount/Hasbro to quit nameslapping. It's freaking ridiculous.
