Yellow robot in Transformers 3 trailer

Who is this guy?

Well at long last, the trailer has been posted and we can see it! So Michael Bay’s Transformers films will come full circle and end how they began – riffing off real-life space missions and twisting them to fit into the Transformers Universe. This time we go back to the mission to land the first man on the moon, Apollo 11. I encourage you to learn a bit about the mission by checking out the wiki page.

The only majorly interesting bit we get to see is a full upper-torso shot of yellow or golden Autobot which appears to be confined in the ship.  This may just be a random bot but the attention to the design of the face and body lead me to believe this is at least a named character.  My first guess is Alpha Trion, as I feel the Autobot looks a bit on the weathered side.  Completely an off the cuff guess by yours truly.  I call him an Autobot due to the blue glow of his eye ball.

And they tried to tell us Transformers didn't need ships in this universe!

We are also treated to an incredibly complex take on the Transforming logo ala the first teaser trailer.  Stylistically, it appears this 3rd film will be taking some cues from the first.  Let’s hope that trend continues!

Of course big time fans are going to complain that there are too many humans, but it’s just a teaser. We’ll get some more of the juicy stuff sooner than later. So far, I like what I see and I hope this really is the big finale that I’ve been hoping for!
