Transformers 4

Update: MichaelBay.com has also released a new image of another Autobot but it's definately one you're familiar with. Here's what truck form Optimus Prime is going to look like in TRANSFORMERS 4:

Optimus Prime

Original: Yesterday we learned that T.J. Miller was joining TRANSFORMERS 4 and showed you two new Autobot cars that will be appearing in the movie. Now a source for JoBlo.com has informed us of the names of the two Transformers.

According to the source the C7 Corvette Stingray is named "Slingshot" and the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse is named "Drift". There are two Autobots with the same names from Transformer's first generation of characters but it isn't completely clear if they will be the same characters or just share the same names.

I'm not the biggest fan of the series (first one is the only one I find tolerable) but that doesn't mean I'll at least give TRANSFORMERS 4 a chance. I do hope the film is at least a little different visually from the rest of the movies in the franchise. By the time the third film came out all the robots looked the same to me. Except for that one really big one of course.

Filming for TRANSFORMERS 4 should start sometime next month and will be in theaters on June 27, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think TRANSFORMERS 4 will successfully reboot the franchise?

Nothing says "inconspicuously disguised as a vehicle to blend in on Earth" as a truck that's just been on Pimp My Ride.

The whole new Optimus Prime design looks to be in line with the new Transformers: Prime cartoon. Still, I'd ditch the flame looks and just keep it red and blue.

I couldn't care any less about this. We all know what we are going to get from these films. We have already seen everything Bay is capable of with the Transformers universe. The results have been utterly lackluster. Yes, I know it has made a quazillion dollars, but the films were unimpressive to say the least.

Piss poor character design, awful writing, incoherent action sequences; I simply see nothing to look forward to regarding this and no reason to believe it will be different at all. It

Ugh ...

What a bunch of babies. Freakin' TF purists. I grew up watching G1, and I actually don't mind the flames. I just hope they give Prime more personality than they did in the last movies.

I'm ready for the thumbs down now. Haters gonna hate.

Good thing about last movie is they killed off all the main villans, so they have no choice but to bring Galvatron and Unicron. The new character Drift is from the IDW comic book series, he is basically a decepticon that after doing alot of bad shit decided to go all zen and become a autobot.

I don't care....

As long as we have more robots on screen and less humans talking. When I was a kid watching the cartoon, I didn't care of humans in the cartoon. This applies to the movie as well. When we have the humans cracking jokes and slap stick, rolling my eyes. First movie wasn't bad. 2 and 3 started to be so bad with humor that I rolled my eyes so much that it got stuck in the back of my head.

wtf

wtf. I really enjoyed everything they did with TF in the first movie. Getting down the look and feel of it. It's not that the truck looks bad, but the original wasn't bad either...I'd love to see sometime in the new trilogy him imprint off his original truck from the cartoon; that would be sweet.

Mark Walberg and T.J. Miller could be a good pairing. Walberg being the straight man and T.J playing for laughs.
