TF3 news - new bot faces, no Stunticons, & Rosie's character

More and more news regarding the third live action Transformers movie continues to appear in just about everywhere on the Internet. Aside from the occasional video leaks and whatnot, more bits of information have come our way.

First, The Scorecard Review has several images from the Chicago film site of the movie. In these images, we are shown the faces of some of the robot characters attached to poles that are used to show the positions of the CGI models when interacting with the human characters. Among these faces is a new one that sort of resembles an elderly man with white hair and a mustache.

Among the speculations about who this new character could be is the possibility of him being Kup. When asked about it, Shoot For The Edit site admin Nelson responded, "Wrong, no Kup."

In another view of the Chicago film site, TFW2005 has images of another new character's head, only this one looks a little more familiar. Having previously heard that Shockwave would be an antagonist in this film, a new head bearing a resemblance to the typical Shockwave head look  has shown up. Now we can't say for certain that this head is Shockwave, but it's a good possibility.

Finally, two more bits from Nelson of Shoot For The Edit. One is that he confirms that the meched-out NASCAR race cars are not Stunticons, nor are they Omnibots (another fan theory). The other is in regards to the character that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Megan Fox's replacement as Sam's love interest). It has been revealed that her character will be named none other than "Carly", the same name of the girlfriend/wife of G1 Spike Witwicky and the wife of Animated Spike Witwicky.

hmm an elderly transformer that isn't kup?
perhaps it is alpha trion or perhaps its a miss information campain and it truely is kup.

as for the mechedout cars not stunticons? hmm i wonder who it could be.
i think it's fitting that fox got the axe and replacing with carly is truely a beautiful end to tf3 and the tf movies in general.

i cant wait to hear mor

Well, there are lots of other elderly characters besides Kup and Alpha Trion. Or, it could even be a new character, like how Jetfire was.

to be fare jetfire wasn't exactly new but different.
true about lots of other elderly transformers but those two are the most likely from a popularity point of view cos its not going to be vector prime.
it could however be one of the seekers that were only mentioned in passing with a few snap shots in rotf.

it wouldn't shock me if they gave drift a movieverse caricter seeing as they seemto be throwing him down our necks like they are doing with bumblebee.

The name "Jetfire" may not have been new, but the character definitely was.

Then again, now that I think about it, he may not be an "elderly" bot and instead be a "scholarly" "scientific", or "intelligent" bot like Perceptor, Wheeljack, or whoever.
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-07-22 13:31:35
perhaps perseptor then? seems likely.
if megatron has a genious then its only fare to give the autobots one also. perseptor best fits the bill for that.
true about the caricterisation of movie jetfire being new blood so to speak.

the older tf character seemed to me to be wearing glasses.....maybe it is perceptor but im hoping for alpha trion
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-07-22 15:45:48
trion is unlikely to be honest because of the primes being dead but it could be

For the face attatched to the pole i think it's APEFACE!!!!

Yes! I knew it! I knew she would make a good carly.
Cyber Angel said,  - 2010-07-24 13:57:37
When I saw that face I thought Einstein??
Looks to me is a scientific Bot, Perceptor will fit that bill, but obviously transforming into something else other than a telescope.

maybe the stunticons are NEST vehicles

Maybe its... aw man I forgot most of the G1 characters:(....... I agree with Lioconvoy, maybe they're trying to keep it a suprise or somthing...

OH! I just remembered that on somthing I saw this guy on the news intervewed Michal Bay and said he was going to use alot less explosions and less transformers. But if you look at those pictures... you see carnage,fire,and destruction.
