What you may have missed in the latest Transformers 3 trailer – Wheeljack, Mirage, Skids, Mudflap, Crankcase and more

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon autobots in hanger

I spy with my little eye, two little shit heads!

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?

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon Dreads and Crankcase

Yay, more legions of nameless Decepticons

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!

Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon shockwave and octopus

Looks like someone just killed his pet octopus, and he is all out of bubblegum

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.

Transformers 3 jetwing Optimus Prime kicks ass Decepticons

Here he comes to save the daaaay! But from who exactly?

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??

War for Cybertron Autobots

High Moon Studios had a press event recently that many of the longest-standing Transformers sites were invited to. On display was some of the production art for the game and it is incredible! Check out posts about this at Seibertron and TFW2005.

From what I can see, we get a glimpse at a ton of the environments and most importantly, the characters themselves!

It has been recently revealed that the chracter I suspected to be Onslaught was actually Brawl.  That’s great because the chracter looks very convincingly to be that ‘other’ Combaticon.

Of particular interest to me is the female-looking jet Decepticon on the High Moon’s Decepticon roster board.  If you ask me, this looks like a dead-ringer for a War For Cybertron version of Animated’s Slipstream!  What a cool character to bring in!  Female seekers have been a part of fan fiction since it started and now it’s becoming canon.

Speaking of she-bots, it looks like the autobots’ femme fatale Arcee is on hand to do some damage.  We also see a little red bot in the forme of Cliffjumper.

And finally, we get a good look at Zeta Prime.  He has a likeness to IDW’s Sentinel Prime, but now that Sentinel has been re-cast a pompous bootlicker in Animated, it appears the Prime previous to Optimus has been ret-conned to be Zetz Prime.  I can deal with change like that.

This game is going to be epic!  I hope you have your pre-order in… I still need to do it!   I’m voting Shockwave this year!
