Optimus Prime Gets a Trailer in TF3!

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2010-07-10 2:08 pm has posted images and a video from the Chicago filming going on now, which include Optimus Prime with G1-inspired trailer!  The twins in their new forms, the Ferrari, and some crazily meched out, highly  weaponized cars.  Speculation that they may be the Stunticons and/or Lockdown and Axor?!   Let the speculation fly!!!

hmmmmmm..... stunticons eh? well if they are in the movie maybe we'll have a "key to vector sigma" style in the movie maybe with menasor and the arial bots. probably not but that would be awesome!! as well as primes traile which is too cool!!!

hmm prime gets a trailer ah? interesting.
gives us the question though ... will the trailer be soled seperately or will the leader figure become a supreme.

the two cars hmm.
i hope for lockdown but its mor than likely that its stunticons to go along with the arial bots. after all, we already know that silverbolt is in tf3

I hope the trailer combines with Optimus, because it be really cool if the trailer was constructed from Jetfire's parts and were kept for Optimus to power up against Megatron or Shockwave.

I have a funny feeling that the trailer won't make it into toy form if it doesn't have any other option than being a trailer (like a base or battle platform) in the movie. I mean, if it's just a trailer and nothing more, I doubt Hasbro would waste the time and effort to produce a bunch of giant wheeled boxes that do nothing else.

If it does get a toy, however, it's likely be for a smaller figure. Like, if they take a Voyager Optimus figure, give it a trailer, and then sell it in a box the size of those that sold the RiD, Armada, and Energon Optimus toys.

Though, I'm sure that many have big-time collectors have already given their Leader Optimus figures a trailer if they had the Masterpiece Convoy trailer attached to the Movie/ROTF Prime figures.

AS for the other cars, BB has a new spoiler, Sideswpe is topless, Ratchet's got a new loud color scheme, the Twins are black (oh brother), and Ironhide looks to be the least different.

The Ferrari looks cool. As do the meched-out Nascars.

Most likly hasbro will make the toy. Thats gonna be one big trailer. Wow can't wait. Those cars look like they're in the middle of transforming.

the trailer will more than likely become armour or something along the lines of that or why else would prime have it? the movie transformers are quite practically designed. perhaps a shout out to the apex armour of the reissue pm optimus or perhaps ginrai.

as for bb with a spoiler it's not a mager thing, sideswipe with no top hmm and black twins? i can see mor rasist acusations from the colour choice alone if the speach paterns don't change. although i hope not.

rachit with a different colour scheme isn't that interesting but i guess they do have to sell the toys from it.
perhaps we will see mor intricate figures for rachit and ironhide like upsized versions of there delux figures?

i hope we get to see air born combat in the film.

back to the trailer consept.
perhaps it would become a NEST mobile command center?
that way we would get micro human figures in skail with the different class sizes and it would give reason for selling seperate. perhaps it will also include a series of weapon options for optimus and jetfire parts to clip on?

a complete play set in a trailer sized box at the cost of a supreme lol

so who do you guys think the three as yet unnamed cars are?

Oooh! Speculation time!

Let's see... Optimus's trailer, despite being hyped immensely, is going to float around in space, get a fraction of a percent of the total screentime, and isn't going to do much but talk to a satilite. <3

LOVE the idea of the trailer and if it does get a toy its probably going to be with the voyager class figure love the possible stunticons and if the green one turns out to be lockdown that would be awesome

I heard from someone on another site that Sideswipe(now a convertable) was in that video somewhere

This is not the 2010 or 2011 Camaro. If you look closely, you'll see that there are some slits in the body right before the rear wheels. The camaro also looks slightly smaller. My guess is that this is the concept for the 6th gen, 2015 Camaro. I also don't like the idea of it being a V6 (no air intake at the front). Real muscle cars are V8's!

On to the subject of the trailer, it could just be in this one part of the movie for transportation services, and never be seen again! I hope not, though. I like the idea of it being a nest base. I like leoconvoy's idea of a large trailer being sold individually, but I also like the idea of a voyager edition packaged with OP.

Just my two cents, regards!
