It's too bad about the rig. Not the actual model, but that paint job is still horrid.

I kinda like the idea of that yellow emergency truck being Ratchet. Different, but not terribly so. You don't get that "why not call it Inferno!" vibe, so if that's him it'll work for me.

And, it's a leg on a stick. Kay then.

I like that they've deliberately changed the specific alt modes to bring it more in line with a realistic vehicle, so it's all more "blend in"ny.

And then given them the most conspicuously garish colour schemes EVAR1.

I like the Op paintjob. I can hold out for it being Laser Rod Op for that bit longer that way.

"Ratchet" looks pretty cool as well... is it just me, or do you not see many white ambulances anymore? They all seem to be high-visibility colours now.

I like the leg too. Not alot wrong with that leg. Unless it's going to be Optimus' entire robot mode. Actually, that could be quite cool...

Soundwave will be a leg for the forthcoming Don Murphy's The Transformers Worst Film Evar1, with Ravage, Rumble and Laserbeak but not Frenzy and Buzzsaw as they were barely in Season 1 and certainly not Ratbat LOL as toes.

Nice choice of vehicle modes for Optimus and Ratchet. Even the flames on Optimus I don't mind. I don't know what to say about the leg though... It has a nice shade of blue anyway.

I like them!
Every time I see pics of the movie vehicle modes ( like the awesome new Ratchet and Ironhide modes ), more I realize myself that I want to see new transformers alt/robot modes in this movie ( and real new transformers characters too!).

Oh, and for the moment Prime (at least his leg) has the same paintjob than G1 Prime, so certain people must be happy right now .

Most of 'em around my area look like this:



Sometimes the blue stripe is replaced with an orange one. Between the two, those are the ambulances we've got, but Fallon's big around here.

Yeah, not sure what that yellow thing is, as I've never seen one around here, but it's definitely a better idea than a firetruck (Like Pun said, that would give me a "Why not call it Inferno?" reaction).

We have a mix of colors for the different rescue squads around here. The yellow does make sense, but we have some near neon green vechicles as well.

Prime isn't that bad really, the flames could be much worse
 

The bunnies, they give me knowledge it is neat.

I think that all of these real time alt modes will be revised with CGI. So seeing these pics is probably not much real insight into the movie.
Ratchet apears to be a hummer based rescue vehicle. I doubt there is an ambulance company seriously offering one. thats quite interesting.
 

Come on and wind me up.

I've seen things like that Ratchet mobile for wilderness firefighting and rescues. Probably not standard urban issue, but plausible.

What are the odds that Michael Bay will be come to his senses and drop out of this picture?

Why oh why couldn't Bryan Singer been chosen? X-Men? Check. X-Men 2? Check. Superman Returns? Check. The man is a frickin' genius with this genre.

Michael Bay? Pearl Harbor--check. *:rolleyes: * The Academy Award winning (cough cough) The Island--check

Now between Bumbleebee as a non-talking camaro, Optimus Prime looking like he's been hijacked by gang members who've pimped out their ride, and that ghastly yellow vehicle--he's gotten EVERYTHING right about this franchise. All he needs now is to add a Decepticon Furby and call him Starscream and have Pee Wee Herman as the voice of Megatron and he'll have created the best movie in history.

I'm going to go cry now.

Wait, it just dawned on me that Michael Bay looks like Michael Bolton. If Arcee is in the picture, I think it's safe to say that Optimus Prime is going to break out in song and sing, "When a Man Loves a Woman."

Would you like a little cheese with your whine?

Superman Returns has done about half the box office the studios were expecting. I think Singer will be reurning to indie flicks soon.

Inferno was a Beast Wars fire-ant on the side of the Predacons.
Inferno was also originally a fire truck in G1 on the Autobots side.

Well, yeah, they took the "al" off the end and stuck on an "e." It's all a conspiracy by the man to keep the working class down, I tell you.

BTW, if I ever own a zoo, I'm SO naming one of the monkeys Optimus Prime because of this.
Yeah, yeah, I'm aware that Primal's an ape and not a monkey. Calm down, folks.

Damn you and your primate disclaimer! That was going to be my next rant.

Though Op Minor is a monkey.
