Get a look at the NASCAR Autobot in these leaked Transformers: Dark of the Moon set photos

Jan. 7, 2011by:

I see there's a lot of optimism for TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON. I'm sure that when a lot of you were playing with Transformers at a young age, you only dreamed that your cars and trucks would do some of the shit that the ones in Michael Bay's films do. On top of that, there's some decent looking chicks and tons of cleavage shots. If you were 7, your mom would totally cover your eyes.

For those who can't get enough of TRANSFORMERS, you might like these new pics. Two of them show a more close-up view of Megatron the tanker truck. The other pic is of a car that will be a part of the Autobot group called Wreckers. The site that leaked these photos, InsideLine says this about the new group, "an elite commando unit based on the NASCAR Chevrolet Impala. Three Wreckers will be seen in the movie in red, blue and green liveries. They will resemble the vehicles of Juan Pablo Montoya, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson."

Synopsis:

"The Autobots Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Sideswipe led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) has to come to the aid of his robot friends. Theres new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime Transformers character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.

Extra Tidbit: Which Transformer was your favorite? Mine was obviously Soundwave.

Sweeeeet

I love how much people bash these movies. Have you ever seen the cartoon? These movies weren't really made with the intention to win awards, really they were made to be fun and entertaining (and make money). To the nay sayers, just curious, how would you make a movie about giant fighting robots "award winning"? And for the tidbit, PROWL ALL THE WAY!

If this movie is any less in quality than the first movie it's gonna blow, and I fairly enjoyed that first movie. I dunno what optimism there is for this film, but it's no doubt gonna make a bundle. I kinda dig the stock car decked out with a crap load of weaponary.

As for my favorite Transformer, probably Optimal Primal, but in his ultimate form. Some love for the Beast Wars.

The Nascar Autobots are gonna hate Tyrese's character bc he's black, creating a racial fueled subplot.

re tidbit...
Optimus Prime, ala his 'rebirth' at the hands of a david suzuki looking robot and shortly there after kicking insurmountable amounts of ass, how can that not be your favorite transformer?

you know something...

i love transformers as much as the next guy but it was cheesy no fuck, and an a kid growing up it was great but as an adult you see how absurd it was. Yes i look at G1 with my son now and he loves it, and i feel that nostalgia, but it is foolishness. not to mention the string of complete shit that ensued; beast wars, energon, that dumb ass reiteration the other day with an uverweight bulkhead and a turd of a girl running around. With the exception of the first movie (where nemoy was galvatron),

With the exception of the first movie (where nemoy was galvatron), the first bay movie, and the transformers prime, all was shit, entertaining, but shit nevertheless. this is why it irks me when people say 'good entertainment' and 'classic goodness' and all that shit, they were 30 minute commercials for awesome toys. Yes bay did fuck up with 2, but you have yo admit, bay's first transformers flick was great. ask any kid. yes yes yes, i know this is gonna get a million thumbs down and even a few 'shut the fuck up motherfucker' comments, but it's true. What speilberg needs to do is rein in bay, but too little too late, just look at this shit. But you know something, it will have it's great moments and it will have moments of absolute shit...just like all the reiterations before it

If the nascar bot transforms and talks like a hillbilly, I wonder if people will think it's racist?

That would be less rascist than the 2 bots in the 2nd film and turning Jazz from Scatman Cruthers into DMX

Is it wrong that I can envision Bay creating a scene where the nascar-bots fight the twin-bots from the second movie?

I hate Nascar and I hated the 2nd Transformers movie. This is the worst possible combination for me. Besides killer sharks with AIDS.
