Constructicon #1; Ice Cream Truck Vids

Posted by:

Revenge of the Fallen news abounds!!  TF-live action Blog has posted an image sent by yet another "anonymous source" a site visitor with a 3D CGI image of the Constructicon (presumed to be named) Long Haul.  Although this does not prove the TFW2005 report that there are 7 and they will combine, it's proof enough for me that at least 1 Constructicon is in the film!  Hold on to your hats, and cover your children's eyes!  Even w/o a human or other Transformer next to him to show scale, this is panic inducing, undie staining, run for your life kind of sweetness! comes through again alerting us to a few (poor quality, distorted) YouTube videos showing the ice cream truck, presumably ~~splitting in half and spinning around 360 degrees!  Check them out here and here...

I cant wait to see how seven will combine into one! I'm guessing 4=arm/legs 1=waist and upper thigh 1=upper torso and 1=shoulders, neck, and head

So, if the ice cream truck is not the Twins, then why does it split in half?

I like how Long Haul has many similarities to Bonecrusher. And hes big... very big... Also I really have no idea bout this Ice Cream truck thing.

funny thing about that image of the constructicon is....ive had it on my hard drive since last year...that image surfaced before and was debated to be high quality fan art possibly....if im wrong ill be really excited...time will tell

I'm still of the opinion that the whole ice cream truck thing is strictly a hoax. I think it's Bay screwing with the fans, and laughing like crazy at the fact that we haven't figgured out yet that it isn't real.

There better not be an ice cream truck. What will the robot mode look like, a clown?

Funny theory KW! You could be right. >> and it seems all the more plausible based on Sabrblade's previous news post.

I dunno, dang. I think a rusty old Ice Cream truck Transformer would be great. However, I still don't get the whole, "twins" thing. What are they going to be, "Chocolate and Vanilla" (twist!) Sheesh.

ha ha ha ha!

I guess the ice cream truck wouldn't be too bad. I guess they had a mountain dew machine transform in the last movie. If they are twins they could be named Rocky and Road, top that one Perceptor!

Their very names strike fear into the oil pump (/hearts) of their Autobot enemies! They are the FIERCE, merciless, the terrible:
"Cookies and Cream!" Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Ben and Jerry?
Neo and Politan?
Mint and ChocolateChip?

Gosh, I hope Bay doesn't make them out to be complete dufuses.
Scorpomike said,  - 2008-09-12 10:15:09
Yeah, Tracks is going to be in the movie, the ice cream truck is going to be Moose and Tracks.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-09-12 10:18:14
LOL! Good one Scorpo!

Well, a while back we were told the Ice cream truck was NOT the Autobot Twins, and yet here we see it split in half in one of the vids.

All signs seem to point to it being the Twins, despite what we were told.

And if Bay leaked false info to us by saying it wasn't the Twins, then why would he go the the lengths to first say that the truck IS the Twins, then say that it ISN'T (and say that the info that said it is was the false info), only for it to be Twins after all?

Or wait, Bay recently just said that we weren't even close to the truck's identity. So if the Twins are separate characters from the truck, and yet the truck splits in half, as do the Twins, but it isn't the Twins, then... Aaaaggghh! My head hurts!

Hurts like hell if people find out that icecream truck is actually Soundwave with Laserbeak ;-)

About the Constructicons, we all know that six form Devastator, 2 for the body & head, two for the legs and feet, 2 for the arms and hands, perhaps the seventh will form the weapon?

The only problem i see with these icecream truck videos is to me they do not look as if they are "splitting apart" as they seems to be cut in half...
Scorpomike said,  - 2008-09-12 12:48:04
Good point Inferno. Five of the limbs could be either a limb or a weapon, like how the seacons are set up.

Hey a buddy of mine that works in the game industry claims to know who modeled the 3D Long Haul, I believe him he's a very honest man. So i'm going with the concept art is official the render is not

The only thing about the movie i like is the robots. and man does long haul kick some serious ass
