Yes Virginia, Optimus Prime does have wings in Transformers 3

02.08.2011

The internet was slightly abuzz yesterday afternoon when toy concepts for the new Transformers line based off DARK OF THE MOON popped up online showing a new look for Optimus Prime - namely, wings. This sparked a lot of "Can Optimus now fly?!" questions around the web and the answer is a big yes. Not because I have any major kind of intel but because he was flying at the end of TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN.

Now I realize TRANSFORMERS 2 was a terrible film that most people try to forget but if you can recall the ending of the film (spoiler alert?) Optimus received the wings of Jetfire, who died fighting Scorponok, so that he may fly to the Harvester and defeat The Fallen (that was one of the weirdest sentences I ever typed). So it should be no surprise that Optimus is still sporting said wings in DARK OF THE MOON.

If you needed some more evidence, you need not look further than the new Super Bowl spot, which shows Optimus using his wings. During the big city battle, Optimus swoops in from above, his wings dispatch from his back (very similar to how his trailer would mysteriously disappear in the cartoon) and he starts carving bitches up like Thanksgiving turkeys. Take a look at the still below and you can watch the video below for a good luck at Optimus in flight.

Optimistic

I'm all for this movie. Sure TF2 sucked major ass but obviously Bay feels the same way and hopes to redeem himself. This could be the sequel that we should have gotten instead of TF2!

Pretty sure the dragon thing is laserbeak looking forward to this but one thing has got me since part 1

Why did humans not use an emp on them surely that'd fry them all

Yes!!!

Rule No. 1: Prime is the leader cause he knows how to whoop ass!

Rule No. 2: If your a Decepticon and you see Prime flying towards you just run for your life cause it's bad for your health.

And finally Rule No. 3: If you wanna destroy and enslave earth Optimus Prime will get in yo ass!

Seriously I think this movie is going to be awesome, it feels like the first movie but much more dark! And I'm glad to see that there are other people who feel the same way and don't just shit on this

But didn't his wings came off after fighting Megatron in Transformers 2? Who cares, Prime can fly now. I'd still love to see Ultra Magnus & Omega Supreme.

His Trailer

They will probably transform into his trailer, the shape of the upper wings looks like they have some kind of wheel shape at the ends, and it looks like all the four larger parts could fold into a trailer shape, obviously it will be all souped up if it happens in the movie.

Also IIRC, didn't Prime kinda discard the wings and rockets/jets after he landed at the harvester in the second movie?

Could It Be Primes Trailer?

Looking at the top of the upper wings on the toy, it looks like it could be a trailers wheels and photos from the set showed it does show up in the flick.

Calm the f*ck down...

Prime has wings in the Superbowl Spot for a mere SECONDS, and then they detach while he cleans house.

Will he have wings? Sure. Will he have the wings the entire time? No. Will we see the wings for a few more seconds in the movie? Probably.

And if you think those are toy cars and trucks - I live near Chicago, I assure you they were very real. The TF3 set swallowed Chicago streets w/ wreckage.

Sigh

When i read the title i thought may Optimus might have gone through a body change ala Beast Wars (Optimal Optimus FTW!) but alas it looks like one fight is probably the only time we'll see something like that as he seems to just do away with the wings (possibly folds them in?)

If they were going to do this i don't know why they would have pulled out al lthe stops and had Optimus roll with his Trailer and that factor into the whole wings thing.

Oh well, never saw the second one in theaters

Oh well, never saw the second one in theaters (or otherwise now that i think of it) and i won't be seeing this one there either. Autobots stumbling around in Sam's back yard while trying to be quite kille dthis franchise for me, sry.

Well...

Robots fighting - this is indistinguishable from the other 2 movies trailers - trailer shows us nothing, except robots fighting - wow - the excitement builds. Not!

Transformers 2

after Optimus defeats the Fallen (in like 2 seconds). he throws off the Jetfire add-ons. in fact he takes that shit off like "ugh, get this shit off of me". i thought it was a one-time use thing.

also, the wings on the toy look nothing like the wings in the picture.

Can't wait for this movie. The trailer was good and has me excited for the last entry.

I wonder how they are going to explain the absense of Megan Fox's character.

Didn't you hear? Apparently she get busted into a container of toxic waste like that guy in Robocop. Then she comes out looking like the new girl.

movie player

joblo - your movie player is busted. most of the time I see the ad (which has been the animated transformers series over and over again), but then won't buffer and play the actual video when the ad is done.
