Transformers - A Slew of Pics!

Yet Another Update - Scroll down to see a whole slew of new pics. Ironhide, Brawl, Barricade, and Bonecrusher, I HAVE THEM ALL!


---------

The names of the Autobots and Decepticons appearing in next summer's Transformers movie were released along with a bit of commentary. I thought that would throw in a few pictures of the robots as an added bonus. Click for bigger version. Sadly there is no ghetto-blaster (or iPod) Soundwave, but I admit the "flame" look on Prime looks A-Ok. Enjoy.

Autobots

Optimus Prime - "The king!"













Bumblebee - "He's the same underdog character we always knew and loved." [Note: Except he's a Camaro in the new movie.]









Jazz - "He's eager to take on the Decepticons."





Ratchet - "Ratchet, who was an ambulance in the cartoon, will appear in a new form."






Ironhide - "The muscle. A tough soldier who can make any Transformer bust an o-ring just with his stare!"




Decepticons

Megatron - "He's been portrayed as pure evil but we're trying to get a little bit behind the evil in this movie. ... He has a slightly less idealistic version of what he thinks humanity is worth."







Starscream - "Always secretly plotting to dethrone Megatron..."



Brawl
- "An extremely pissed off Decepticon."




Bonecrusher - "The closest thing to a Constructicon in the film."





Barricade - "The hunter of the group -- a cop car."




Scorponok - "Closest thing to Beast Wars or Dinobot in the film."






Frenzy - "A smaller form able to infiltrate spaces -- a stealth spy."

Blackout - "The guy who takes out our ability to fight back."

Ugh, Megs still looks terrible. Why does he have TV antennae for fingers? These designs just keep getting worse. And did anyone notice that Ratchet in the Hasbro toy designs that leaked recently looked quite different from that original artwork we saw (shown on your blog)? Guess they are still tweaking designs. Esp since we've seen very little of Jazz, Blackout, Bonecrusher, and Ironhide in robot form. Hell, we've seen 'Cybertron protoforms' (AKA "doody" form) before we've seen barely any of those guys. Damn You, Michael Bay! TINO!!!

They should of had a design contest for what the transformers should have looked like.

I think the designs are cool, they look more "alien" i`m sure i`ll love this movie!!!

Like you could do any better, Tino?

This film is going to rock! I for on am glad they are using new designes to modernize them. Bumblebee would have been lame as a VW bug. The new Camero kicks ass.

We can always expect critics, though Optimus Prime looks pretty cool, along with Bumblebee Megatron does look a little weird. I mean a Transformer with Teeth, it's like a Robo-Predator, but that is what they pictured him as, like said "Pure Evil". The transformations will probably be sweet. Optimus will kick ass (And hopefully they won't kill him off) and the Autobots will eliminate the Decepticons, and liberate Earth. And who knows, mabye Starscream will finally get the piece of Megatron he's waned for so many generations.

ok, none yall know what ur talkin bout! First off, michel bay wanted a newer, and more modern form of transformers more "alien" like, thats why they have teeth. Second, yes i am mad how they changed magatron so much, 2 times infact. from gun, to tank, then to jet, but hell, he stil looks cool, and wtf are you sayin "the toy looks way differant from the robot for"!!the toy have to be able to change for the kids to play with, the real ones... are way more complicated, you nerds gotta use your common sense....

Transformers have come along way from my childhood, Prime and the Autobots look awesome-you notice that there are no european cars, just yank tanks- I guess even the transformers can have a drinking problem. also the cop car looks like a camero aswell-sponsorhip deal?? huge japanese cartoon influence in style.
Megatron should have been a tank. The ol' arm cannon brings back memories of a violent childhood.
Can't change it now The film will be awesome anyway.

Im sick of hearing the designs suck. They far from suck. These transformers look increadible, and best of all: REAL. This is what they would look like if they really existed. What they did with pencils in the 80s cartoon will never never NEVER EVER work. Stop pouting and wipe your nose. As the # 1 Decepticon fan (don't even dispute this) I am Full on Decepticon, Completely ANTI AUTOBOT! And I'll tell you where the weakest point of this movie will be. The FUCKING fact that their demographic is FUCKING SNOT NOSE FUCKING FUCKING KIDS. Its a pg13 movie. So right away you can tell that my Decepticons will be ill represented. They will missfire and kill few if any humans. In reallity it would be a slaughterhouse. A COMPLETE one sided masacer. The movie will be chopped full of faggy Autobot bias, and LAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMEEEEEE ass jokes. like: ''That giant robot is really distracting''
Someone should be killed.

Hey American people, I'm from NZ and have already got TRANSFORMERS at the Movies over here (wierd that we get it first along with the UK), anyhow great flick, Im not going to spoil the movie but I will start with the only bad point I could ID with "TRANSFORMERS" an Aprillia RSV-R (italian sportsbike, not transformer,but that would be cool), has the engine note of a rice-rocket 600 jap bike instead of the glorious, thunderous V-Twin that belongs to it. Speilberg when will ye learn?.
it is only a small part of the film, but still gripes my ass.

Well back to the PRIME-ary points
Blackout is my favourite decepticon along with Bonecrusher
they both look fantastic and Autobots Ironside and Jazz are cool characters.

Nah, Megatron looks wicked in the actual movie, but his scrap with OP is somewhat lacking on PRIME's behalf, made up for beforehand with (SPOILER, Slightly..) OPTIMUS ripping off BRAWL's head with the energy axe, and, along the lines of weapons Megatron gets an awesome Flail, but he only uses it once.

Anyway Enough Said don't want to ruin it, so go see it!

Saw the prescreening today... most amazing film ever... EVER.. and its funny with bumblebee because in the car lot he's sittin right next to a vw bug haha... megatron is well done.. so is prime and jazz. blackout was mint as well. the physics are true to the original

Demrok said...

I saw it last night as well... wicked movie... very funny, and the effects kicked ass. All those who are whining about Bay can grow up and realize that he did a wonderful job with the movie... and realize he DIRECTED it.. I don't think he alone created the new look of the Transformers, being the director...
Movie kicked ass, and it moved the old outdated designs into a futuristic more modern look. Get past the inner 6 year old mentality of what you REMEMBER them as and enjoy the great movie.

Saw the movie yesterday, thought it was really good. Was very happy they didn't kill Optimus, he died way too many times in the show.
I loved Bumblebee in this movie and I also thought that Frenzy was funny as hell.

Wouldn't Scorponok be closer to an insecticon? I don't remember there being a scorpion one but it HAS been ages^^

Brandon said...

I saw the movie yesterday and it was definately the best movie of the year in my opinion, and bumblebee definately kicks ass!! Although the movie was great it did leave some questions, like what happened to starscream and barricade, it never showed how they died or anything. I loved the movie LOTS of action and LOTS of comedy!

Scorponok would actually be an "Incectacon".

_zippo85 said...

brandon, i donno if u saw the credits, but 1/2 way thru u see starscream fly away into space, it leave a bit of room for a sequel?

Great movie tho, the best i've seen this yr :)

Anonymous said...

Barricade got his ass knocked in by Bumblebee right after the (amazing) chase scene between the two, and Starscream flies off into space at the end

Anonymous said...

I dunno if Frenzy was the lil guy, he seemed like soundwave to me, since they both changed into a stero O.o

Anonymous said...

wtf i saw the movie it kick's ass and he hole bumblebee situation was hasbro's idea and i think it's a good one cuz the VW would look to much like herbie and the camero looks much MUCH better next time you post hate stuff like this watch the movie 1rst it has helarious lines, great action, a good story line and awsome, kickass state of the art visual effects plus, the characters ar better than ever, my personal fav is Frenzy his helarious!! and you'll see why megatron looks like he does it's a picture of course you'l; see all the weird details and stuf but in the movie you just see the bad ass old megatron, and starscreem disapointed me in the pictures but he looks awsome in the movie cuz transformers is a mooving film when you see everyone shooting giant robots and see a lot of stuf blow up it brigns you back to your child hood....good times, good times.

Barricade def. did not die i watched it twice now and the first time i was like wtf happened to barricade, In that seem where prime fights (I forgot his name) under the bridge and sticks a sword in his face they show Barricade following the autobots on the High Way, but then they never show him again, this leads me to believe thatBarricade will deff. be in the sequal along with Starscreem.

Anonymous said...

barricade got fucked up by bomble bee. You see him in the background in a heap and bumble walking away.

"barricade got fucked up by bomble bee. You see him in the background in a heap and bumble walking away."

when? Because i saw he got fucked up in the first fight seen between him and Bumble Bee, but then they show Barricade again chasing them along with the rest of the Decepticons but they dont show him fighting.

thats what happens when you shoot sequences out of order...prolly a screw up on directors part...but if i had to put my money on it most of them will be brought back for the sequel...oh yea their making at least three was confirmed in may 2007 no news on same director or not.

Anonymous said...

they also said that they want to find a way to include soundwave(but keep him to scale somehow...no transforming into tiny stereo)arcee(only chick autobot(prolly to appeal to the female fan base) and some kind of giant transformer(like omega supreme)it is suppose to be an aircraft carrier i guess is whats floating around the studio...oh yea and the news is that jazz will almost definetly be brought back(using the small shard left of the cube no doubt). I'm sure they will bring back some of the decepticons...also the only thing i didn't like was how they changed so may names of already established characters, and events (ie:, devastator is totally brawl...allspark is totally vector sigma...)...but i guess new ages breed new ideas and all in all this is a amazingly welcomed breath of life into an aging franchise...can't wait for the next 2

Anonymous said...

oh and to answer the previous question if they did in fact purposely not show what happened to certain characters its because they want to leave it open just in case some changes need to be made or characters need to be replace to to bad public response...but remember this is transformers people anything is possible...i mean they could totally ruin it by making megatron stay dead along with everyone else and introduce totally never before seen transformers...with starcreams as decepticon leader lol wouldn't that be a laugh :P

Anonymous said...

one more thing while watching the movie for like the upteenth time i noticed what looks like barricades remains on the aircraft carrier at the end....wierd th hard to make out whos on it...didn't see bonecrusher or devastator. can anyone clarify this? anyways they never catch scorponok or starscream, and you can't see frenzy pn the aircraft carrier either...but reading the wiki site for transformers (movie info near the bottom) it says that barricade is killed by optimus in the novel and comic adaptations of the movie after being thrown into a pillar and broken into pieces...

Anonymous said...

looks like you can see blackout's rotars on the ship.

Anonymous said...

Guys, where were you when you watched this movie?? Barricade wasn't killed in the Bumblebee-Barricade duel after the chase. He was beaten, yes. But not killed. -- Remember when the Decepticons were already starting their assembly?? Everybody was present including BARRICADE, men! There was one scene he was already on his way. But he never did make it to that battle in the city. Didn't you see that? So the question remains, what did happen to him??

As for Starscream, yes, I think he flew into space or something..

Anonymous said...

yea I know he doesn't physically die in the movie but when they are throwing the remains of the dead robo's in the ocean it looks like you can see a door or panel form barricade on the ship which contradicts the fact that he was never seen dead or killed...in fact he is in the rush to the city with bonecrusher but after (spoiler) optimus wipes the floor with bonecrusher you don't see him again...odd! but the unofficial release is that scorponok and starscream are the only survivors...so if that is true what the hell happened to barricade?

the movie is so amazing!! i havent seen the show since i was in my early childhood years.. now that im 17 and getting ready to graduate im begging my parents every day for the new camaro all because of this movie!!

IronCageofMorals said...

The Chevrolet Camaro model that Bumblebee transforms into, after copying that in which he finds in the tunnel, is the 2009 Chevrolet Camaro model. I dun think it's gonna come out for a while, but believe me - you're not the only one wanting it because of this movie! *drools*

Anyway, Keep chasing the dreams and sooner or later, you'll have them in your hands forever! ^_^

Anonymous said...

Barricade survives, yes misleading when the humans are scarping the remains, but he slips away, so does Scorponok and Starscream to rally more Decepticons for the next movie assuming of course. Although Hasbro is having a real field day making more transformer movie figures that might be suggesting the new Decepticons like Wreckage, Dreadwing, Dropkick, Swindle and Payload and a Autobot Arcee.

Anonymous said...

k,i have seen the movie and beaten the game and after starscream f;ies off to space he starts to fight off decepticon leader Shockwave and so on...decepticons live on!

sylentz said...

Easily the best movie ever for me. I thought I saw Barricade's door as well on the Aircraft Carrier. Led me to believe he was dead. Never gave it a second thought til now...He was my favorite though.Him and Ironhide....

That would be bad-ass if he survived and Starscream came back to earth with more Decepticons as a Leader. Bring back Megatron (didn't he come back as Galvatron in Cartoon movie??)....

So many options....

I say kill Prime. Every good story has to have someone good die for the "Cause".

That movie rocked. The only part I would have taken out was the back-yard scene where Sam was locating the glasses.

CAn't wait for the DVD behind the scenes...

Later All...

sylentz said...

Also, all the designs we're pretty cool. I'm glad Megatron looked more Alien. Bad-ass. I did not want to see him Transform into a Gun. Noway. Someone would have to use him.

Camaro was righteous. Had that "70-80's-every-teenage boy's-first-car" theme going. I know alot of kids had those Camaros growing up. A VW Bug would have been gay.

Loved the changes. Michael Bay got it right. I was thinking I was just going to like it a little before I went in there but now............now is a totally different story.

I saw it on friday.Really cool movie. Frenzy was really funny. The overall movie was the BEST MOVIE THAT I'VE EVER SEEN!

Anonymous said...

aaaaaaagh! that kid who shouts "cool mom!" like a complete goon when prime and bonecrusher are fighting really grinds my gears. anyone agree? that kid deserves to die

Anonymous said...

Saw the movie in the uk tonight, agree with alot of other peeps that was probs the best movies ill see this year and probs the best action movie ive seen for a a couple of years, altho with bourne ultimatum coming out we'll have to wait and see. Glad to hear theres gna b sequels as i was so impressed, portrayed emotion really well with bumblebee and sam. Few hotties in it too which always helps. And as others have mentionned frenzy is a cheeky lil fucker! Optimus is awesome as are ironhide and jazz, that pontiac is sweet!! Long live the autobots!!

the new designs are way better than the gay cartoon versions

Never seen much of the original Transformers, growing up in the 90's. I used to love Beast Wars though! To the person above, yes Megatron does turn into Galvatron, in one of the animation movies. I think he get pwned by Optimus's replacement.

Im looking for pictures of Barricade, my favorite in the movie! If anyone has anymore pictures of him, please post, or send to my email (My post name @gmail.com)I mainly want him in car form.
