After yesterday’s reveal of the Transformers Dark of the Moon trailer, it’s time to dissect every little morsel and see what we can see. If you look at the image above, you will see some significant information. First off, you can see Mirage (Ferarri). After that we see Sideswipe (Corvette), Wheeljack (blue car), and THE TWINS!!!! I have no idea why Bay seems so adamant about telling us the twins are not in the movie. It’s just silly. Also in this scene will be Ratchet, Ironhide, and Optimus Prime. So where is Bumblebee?
Here we have an enormous amount of Decepticons waking up on the moon. Why are they there? I’m sure there will be absolutely zero explanation for such a ridiculous occurrence. The Autobot Ark crashed there and is on the surface but there are thousands of Decepticons and their warships laying dormant. Really cool… what in the hell is going on here? Regardless, that is the face of the very buglike Crankcase (or The Dreads), which turns into the black lifted SUV’s seen on set and crashing into Ironhide in the trailer. Ole bug-eyes wants to eat you!
Of course we finally have Shockwave and his pet Octopus. In this very brief look at ol’ One-Eye, he is seen cocking his incredibly large cannon attached to his right arm. Generation 1 fans will be quick to note that it should be on his LEFT ARM, damn you design team! He is looking down LaSalle street after what I am surmising to be the destruction of the titanic robotic hydra worm, which I am dubbing the Wormy Durmy. There is some sort of hint at the identity or origin of the Wormy Durmy in one of the preview comics but I simply don’t care enough to look yet. Shockwave looks pretty mean! I hope he keeps his cold logic versus being portrayed as an angry scary brute. His simplistic nature is what makes him so chilling.
In this little scene, which we saw in the last trailer, we can see a variety of old Decepticons including a Brown Brawl, Barricade lookalike, and Long Haul lookalike. Prime blasts Longhaul after landing, stabs and slams Barricade to the ground, and appears to slice Brawl right in half. That leaves just some random Decepticons and Shockwave left on the upper side of Wacker where the scene takes place. So who is going to throw down with Shockers – Optimus or Sentinel??
