Autobot Firetruck In TF3 Is...

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2010-08-04 12:26 am
Collection.org has posted a terrific photo of a new Autobot firetruck to appear in Transformers 3.   Videos of him rolling out can also be seen on YouTube here.  Who is it?  Nelson of Mike Bay's site has stated:

"it's not Inferno, Hot Spot or Pyro."
and
"I think fandom will faint when they find out who this firetruck is. 
It's gonna be like when people saw Optimus Prime for the first time--with flames. 
I really hope they don't reveal the name."

After reading popular fan guess, Ultra Magnus, Nelson said:
"You're sticking with UM because you want me to say no hence it would be very easy to guess who it then is. The burden of proof lies with you."

By drawing comparison to this character as a firetruck is as radical of a departure as Optimus Prime with flames... = it could be anyone!  Let the speculation begin!!!

ok i've got two thauts and both of them don't exactly fill me with happyness although they do depart from the norm giving something new wich is good i guess.
my thauts are rodimus , because of the flame deco on his hood and doors. why not make him larger its a movie rite lol
and ultra magnus because well they can.

honestly, i'm surprised that they haven't atempted to put drift in to the films yet seeing as they are seemingly trying to "make him the transformers iquivalant of wolverine"

my possible thoughts are Rodimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, or (more unlikeley, but better) Omega Supreme. oh or Hot Shot

How about Perceptor as the firetruck? ;-)
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-04 12:08:47
consider this. could it possibly be ... grimlock. a radical departure from what we know of the big prehistoric lug but lets face it, bay hasn't exactly kept 2 propper cannonised fiction. where is sunstreeker?

I know this is off the wall but maybe Fire Convoy, leader of a small squad of Autobots who picked up on Primes message at the end of the 07 movie.... think of it....fire truck.... big character (leader sized)..... there are other Autobots out there among the stars.......and it would fit with how bay has played with the TF history.....

i dout it would be car robots fireconvoy.
its a good idea but i dout bay would include a second optimus prime caricter
Likely names for TF3FT:

*Beachcomber
*Sandstorm
*Warpath
*Tracks
*Snarl
*Sludge
*Slag (especially likely since that name is banned in the UK)

Ehren Kruger (new guy on the script for TF2, sole screenwriter for TF3) knows/cares very little about Transformers. This I can forgive. But nothing is sadder than someone like that pretending to be an expert. Look at the Bayniverse's version of the Matrix. Look at it...Look at it!
This 'radical departure' nonsense is probably just Bay and/or Nelson covering up for Kruger, making it look like he did it on purpose. An idiot Bay may be, but I don't blame him (well, not entirely) for the travesty that was TF2.

Bet my bottom dollar on Rodimus or U. Magnus. Though I hope that Ultra Magnus is some kind of armored truck vehicle.
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-06 17:13:26
magnus had a grate alt mode in animated. i would like to see him in a form resembling it for the movie universe although a lot mor real lol. if not the good old car transporter is a tried and tested method for a thumbs up fandom lol
Shattereduniverseprime said,  - 2010-08-07 12:09:54
I think Rodimus is more likely than Magnus but im still hoping its Fire Convoy. Maybe Red Alert? he was a fire cheif's car.....not that far to change into a fire truck......

I bet it's going to be Beachcomber, Powerglide, Seaspray, Cosmos, Blaster, Sky Lynx or Fortress Maximus

I would put my money on Rodimus. But I have a suspicion it will end up being Blaster.
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-08 13:56:31
blaster is an interesting consideration but i would have thaut he would be a satalite or a music van or something of that consideration.

i am sooo not happy about the changes to bb optimus and sideswipe.
i don't reely want to get a new prime leader figure but the trailer would be nice. bb doesn't reely need changing and well i'm just lucky i didn't pick up a sideswipe because i will now be wanting the convertable lol.

but back on to the matter at hand.

grimlock, ultra magnus, rodimus, omega supreme, etc etc are mor likely names. rodimus seems to be the most likely but we will see. after all, bay is a master of deseption
Masterforce said,  - 2010-08-08 15:44:37
It would be cool if it was Rodimus, but PLEASE don't make him the new leader of the Autobots in the beginning of TF3 in an effort to promote new toys. :-)
Kristine Roach said,  - 2010-08-08 21:15:56
The fire truck is TF3 is indeed Ultra Magnus. he used to be a car carrier.He is Optimus Prime's brother and he is a city & wrecker commander
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-09 02:31:38
if the firetruck is in the furst wave of leaders and is ither rodimus or magnus i will get it lol.
ultra magnus seems equally as likely as rodimus seeing as the reckers are in the movie.
hears hoping that the other leader is shockwave lol

It is just said that there will be a Fire Truck autobot, but it doesn't mention how big of a character it will be (story wise, not size). Is it possible that it could be Optimus and that he reformats himself into a fire truck by the end of the movie? We have already seen BB reformat himself in the first movie, and Optimus has been depicted as a fir truck in numerous variations of Transformers. After seeing a pic of the fire truck I would if not Optimus, then Ultra Magnus or Cybertron Hot Shot. I wouldn't have guessed that but after seeing the pic, the shape of the vehicle it looks very much like the TF: Animated Ultra Magnus, or the Cybertron Defense Hot Shot.
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-10 07:50:22
i would dout its a reformatted prime. after all it stated that it would make the fandom reel and people are used to prime as a firetruck. i am guessing grimlock as it is a radical deparcher from the norm and lets face it. fire truck, and the dinobots used fire as primary weapons. loose and floppy link but as likely as any.
i would rather rodimus or magnus but there we go
anon said,  - 2010-08-10 12:54:59
I'll say it's Firebolt, since it kind of looks like the Minicon from the Armada line, or Redhot, or I dunno, whoever you guys will go for. My money's on Ultra Magnus, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Plus, have you seen the pictures of the fuel truck? I hope it's either Tankor, Onslaught, or Mega Octane.
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-10 18:23:46
there is roomer going round that its not a gen 1 caricter so what firetrucks can you guys think of from other lines that arn't optimus, inferno, hotspot, pyro.
all i can think of is smolder and i dout its him seeing as he is a decepticon. hmm
Starburst said,  - 2010-08-13 15:37:03
They have to have Inferno in the movie! If the firetruck isn't Inferno, Hotspot, or Pyro...then it's probably gonna be Rodimus...Let's just hope we don't have a re-anactment of the 1986 movie..

Oh, and where's SUNSTREAKER?! They have his brother, but not him...not fair...
lioconvoy said,  - 2010-08-14 15:38:41
the wiki on sideswipe says he has a relation called sunstreeker so i am assuming that sunstreeker is in tf3 ither toyline or movie or dead.

on subject of the firetruck. perhaps it could be missinformation about the firetruck not being inferno or pyro etc
bay has done it before
Inferno said,  - 2010-08-17 14:00:44
How about the firetruck being one of Prime's "upgrades" just like Jetfire was for him in the 2nd movie.. Heh, perhaps his trailer becomes his Powermaster form and the firetruck being something like God Bomber?

And if indeed the other truck is Ultra Magnus, wouldn't it be cool they can also combine to form Omega Prime?!
Mark said,  - 2010-08-26 17:21:29
Michael Bay has ruined the Transformers and all we accomplish by discussing it is owning a little piece of that destruction ourselves. Shame on us all. Long live G1!
