TRANSFORMERS 4 "Freightliner" Revealed; Is This Ultra Magnus?

TRANSFORMERS 4 "Freightliner" Revealed; Is This Ultra Magnus?

Michael Bay has revealed another Transformers 4 vehicle via his official site, and we may just know which character this one is the disguise of! The Freightliner cab-over truck is quite possibly Optimus Prime's "brother", Ultra Magnus. Check out the pic after the jump..

Is this a sign that Ultra Magnus will feature in Transformers 4? Well, the truck above certainly resembles the character when in vehicle mode, and sports a similar paint job. Ultra Magnus (sometimes depicted as Optimus Prime's brother) is an Auotobot who first came about in the form of a repainted Optimus Prime toy back in 1986, and has since appeared in various incarnations of the comics and animated series. Of course we don't know for sure if this will be Magnus, as the only description given on the site is: "The adventure continues to transform with a very different offering from Daimler Trucks North America . . . the imposing 2014 Argosy cab-over truck by Freightliner." What do you think?

Aint gonna lie, that's a cool looking truck

To bad Robert Stack (Unsolved Mysteries) isn't around anymore to voice him if it is indeed Ultra Magnus.

But Prime... I'm... I'm just a soldier. I'm not worthy.

I always hated Ultra Magnus when I was a kid. When I rented the movie for the first time, I loved every second of Optimus being on the screen, then he died and this pussy version of his took his place.

I got over it, of course. :P But he's still tainted from that first look at him.

If Megatron will be revived for the 452,521st time. Michael Bay have my permission to die.
Platinum - 6/28/2013, 2:31 AM
Ooh! about damn time.
titansupes - 6/28/2013, 2:32 AM
@TheOther - What if he comes back as Galvatron?
Bark4Soul - 6/28/2013, 2:44 AM
Thats awesome, pretty much has to be Ultra Magnus or this is some DUMB plot twist by Bay that will more than likely fail hard.
kemuael - 6/28/2013, 2:52 AM
Looks Awesome!!!

That's a tuff looking truck!
unknownfacts - 6/28/2013, 3:18 AM
Could be the Stunticons leader Motormaster he was a truck too.
blvdnoise - 6/28/2013, 3:28 AM
This thing is really trying huh?
xXkryptoniteXx - 6/28/2013, 3:51 AM
This looks bad ass!
ComicFan1134 - 6/28/2013, 3:52 AM
So Prime Is Stupid Looking While This Putz Gets The Cool Look? Add That To The List Of Fails,Bay.
DamienA - 6/28/2013, 3:56 AM
Looks cool if it is Ultra Magnus. Just give me a hint of Unicron and I may tone done my hated of Michael Bay.

MoonDoggyX - 6/28/2013, 4:09 AM
@unknownfacts - you are correct, sir! That truck look nothing like Magnus except for the fact that its a truck. The color scheme matches Motormaster perfectly...

I liked Ultra Magnus, but they had better not kill Prime AGAIN!
TheGreenBastard - 6/28/2013, 4:27 AM
I'd love to see Ultra Magnus in this movie. I also wanna see Galvitron and Nemesis Prime as well. The first two films were ok for me, but I really liked the third one, so hopefully this one is as good, or better.
TheGreenBastard - 6/28/2013, 4:28 AM
I lovd how this article presents this as "could this be him" instead of the proper "who could this be?".
TheOther - 6/28/2013, 4:42 AM
@titansupes: Bay has to go, they had their chance reviving Big Meg in TF2.
sameoldthing - 6/28/2013, 4:54 AM
Prime should be a cab over rig as he SUPPOSED TO BE..stop screwing up the classic looks with bullshit you movie assholes.
WruceBayne - 6/28/2013, 5:26 AM
I say he's Motormaster. The Ultra Magnus color scheme is all wrong for this truck. I bet it's a Decepticon, they always look better than Autobots.
BboiBlack - 6/28/2013, 5:34 AM
but fanboys want robots in disguise that can blend in........what a fickle group ya'll are.
Seven23 - 6/28/2013, 5:55 AM
Or huffer.
TJJones96 - 6/28/2013, 6:26 AM
Never thought a truck like that could look cool.
dmmosh1 - 6/28/2013, 6:28 AM
Magnus wasnt that good in 80's TF movie i thouht springer came accross as a better leader but if you watch the original series you see that he was realy good and would probably made a good leader

still not giving my monnies to watch these watered down TF films they are that bad
NoAssemblyReqd - 6/28/2013, 6:40 AM
I remember gasping at Magnus's line in TF:THE MOVIE : "Open! Damn it! Open!"

This would only be followed up by an even bigger gasp later on: "Oh s***! What are we gonna do now?"
NoAssemblyReqd - 6/28/2013, 6:43 AM
@sameoldthing I think the practical reason for making Prime a front-engine rig was that it allowed him to be bigger. The cab-over-engine design didn't have enough room.
Ramiel - 6/28/2013, 7:03 AM
Magnus sucks! I want Hot Rod!
GLFanboy - 6/28/2013, 7:27 AM
How does a Transformer have a brother? Discuss...
Ceejay - 6/28/2013, 7:58 AM
How and why do Transformers have female's? Why the hell would gender matter to a constructed robot, sentient or otherwise?

More robots hitting each other please and less worry about the stupid toy concept, it was silly to begin with but made for good spectacle. Anyone taking this too seriously and still doing that hate Michael Bay shit really has lost their marbles over nonsense. These films and the silly cartoon were just made for fun, it will never be serious scifi with origins like this.
TheBatman777 - 6/28/2013, 8:16 AM
Can't lie. This looks pretty cool. All Michael bay has to dois stay true to the series. But we all know he cant do that for some stupid reason only he knows. But we all can't deny that the special effects and slowmo scenes is the best part of this franchise!!! It takes a lot of imagination to take vehicles and find ways to incorporate that in a robot form and still keep pretty accurate details of the car noticeable as a robot. Let's all call it how we see it. Michael bay can make some badass fight scenes BUT HE SUCKS AT PLEASING THE DIE HARD FANS WITH WHAT THEY WANT!!! at least we might be getting the dino bots
Vaportrail - 6/28/2013, 8:28 AM
Yeah, it so is.
pistolero82 - 6/28/2013, 8:50 AM
Nemesis Prime!!!!!!!!
jparr2 - 6/28/2013, 11:00 AM
Stunticon MotorMaster... i mean think about it.. all these way out cars.. the green vette, the bugatti, stunticons....
KingEmperor - 6/28/2013, 11:42 AM
Ultra Magnus should be bigger than Optimus Prime.
eleven59 - 6/28/2013, 2:01 PM
Color scheme matches motor master or nemesis prime better, but this is Bay were talking about and colors be damned! Could be Huffer, Magnus, new prime color, galvatron... With Bay, one never knows... And knowing, is half the battle.... Oh wait... I got my crapfest movie franchises mixed up...
Lostcause - 6/28/2013, 4:20 PM
With all the crap Bay has gotten on his movies....maybe he will get this one half way right.
MoonDoggyX - 6/28/2013, 4:46 PM
I LOVED the Original Series. I even payed $70 for the 20th Anniversary Edition Optimus Prime... AND the Original Optimus Prime toy from 1984... That said, are you guys really saying that the movies are crap compared to the cartoons???

Who ever says something that CRAZY obviously hasn't seen G1 in decades... Much less seen the nearly dozen series since G1 in which the the bot look different every time. Apparently you guys are going off of fond childhood memories of the show instead of actually quality or references. I get it, but get real people!
