TRANSFORMERS 4 Set Pics & Videos Feature Rusted COE Truck; Is It Optimus Prime?

Filming for Michael Bay's Transformers 4 continued in Texas, and this time much of it focused on a beat up cab-over-engine truck, that happens to look a lot like the original Optimus prime from the 1984 toy line. Also, more pics of Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz & TJ Miller.

Who cares? Why is this still in the hands of Michael Bay?

He had his trilogy, give it to someone else with a different vision...
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 6/19/2013, 6:51 PM
Damn Prime let himself go.
ForeverPowerful - 6/19/2013, 6:54 PM
I doubt its Optimus.

Bay is big on trying not to mass shift. Optimus looks too big to fit into that thing. Its either another bot, or something. Probably just a nod to the fans stuck in the 80s.
AgentZero - 6/19/2013, 6:55 PM
Remember Sam's yellow car which we though was Bumblebee in disguise but in fact was not?

Could be the same thing. (I hope so)
MrYurMomm - 6/19/2013, 6:56 PM
Where is that Acura NSX transformer??
MiVigilante - 6/19/2013, 6:57 PM
Would be sweet, but knowing bay itll be primes dad or some bullshit
MrYurMomm - 6/19/2013, 6:57 PM

This deserves to be "transformed" by ILM. That'd be worth the ticket price alone.

I completely agree with RedandBlue. He had his turn and now it looks like he's taking the piss out of us again, Is this starting to look like another comedy explosion adventure film from Michael Bay.
Howlett - 6/19/2013, 7:01 PM
Mark Whalberg looks like a redneck.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 6/19/2013, 7:03 PM
A dirty, rusty Optimus, just like the dirty, rusty VW Beetle in the first one. Michael Bay's way of saying "The original sucked. Mine is way better." Then he went back to smashing his Tonka trucks together on the kitchen floor. "VROOM VROOM!" Douche.
CaptainObvious - 6/19/2013, 7:12 PM
Wow, looks like Prime started to hit the bottle after the poor reception of the second and third movies.

Who wants to bet that the black guy with the crooked yellow teeth is probably going to be one of the film's offensive comic relief characters?

The flames "sort of" give it away?!?!

I always wondered by manufactures stopped making those flat-faced trucks? I remember seeing tons of them around when I was a kid, and obviously classic Optimus.

But I don't think I've seen one of those in like 15 years.
batesmotel - 6/19/2013, 7:37 PM
I didnt know that that prick Jaime Fox was in the movie
RexDartEskimoSpy - 6/19/2013, 7:56 PM
Whoa, wait. Bay won a DGA award? But but but...

Vaportrail - 6/19/2013, 8:03 PM
Hate all you want, haters. You know you'll still see it.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 6/19/2013, 8:13 PM
Yeah, I'll see it. When Netflix gets it.
Ghaleonausa - 6/19/2013, 8:36 PM
another to agree that the bay movies are bad but here is another toss out. maybe ultra magnus?

Fornication - 6/19/2013, 8:42 PM
Nicola Peltz <333

Superrain - 6/19/2013, 8:46 PM
Ultra Magnus!
NeoBaggins - 6/19/2013, 9:10 PM
@Superrain Ah, beat me to it.

And bashing bay is becoming as eye-rolling as the cliched outcries against Lens Flares.
pro346 - 6/19/2013, 9:15 PM
Bay haters are so lame! Why does he still have the franchise you say because people like these movies otherwise they wouldn't be making billions!
MightyZeus - 6/19/2013, 9:34 PM
Wheres the Unicron!!!
WYLEEJAY - 6/19/2013, 9:45 PM
No, Don King really let himself go.
Fogs - 6/19/2013, 9:52 PM
By the pictures I can see we'll probably see the same military / racist bullshit Bay delivered in the previous shitty films.
Ghjklbnm - 6/19/2013, 10:05 PM
It's confirmed to be the autobot Hound, do your research please.
RPD - 6/19/2013, 10:07 PM
It's too late...
BboiBlack - 6/19/2013, 10:08 PM
The first person that say bay is doing slutty shots of this chick needs to fully explain how this didn't happen in Avengers/TDKR and SkyFall.

good day.
Ceejay - 6/19/2013, 11:06 PM
So what, the same shit didn't happen with JJ Abrams throwing Carol Marcus in a Bikini underwear for no reason? Dumb fanbyos liked that!

Same idiot writers who pen Transformers into a action comedy are the ones responsible for regressing Star Trek from intelligent scifi into yet another dumb action comedy yet Dumb fanboys liked that!

As long as its somebodies elses thing that's being Hollywoodized into another dumb action comedy, fanboys are fine with it. But if it's one of their fan-favourites form their childhood days being messed with then they go into full tantrum mode.

I hope the new Transformers movie turns out to be a 4th blockbuster hit in a row for Michael Bay just so these idiots can continue wasting their breath dissing him for making films that everyone else worldwide seem to love immensely.

Nerds love sour-grapes!

@hope420 - I totally read that in the 80's Ironhide's voice haha.

It could be Optimus. Perhaps after so many years of sitting idle...the faded flames look like the ones from the fresher truck we saw from before. I'm curious how many years have passed since the huge battle in Transformers 3?
BlindJustice - 6/20/2013, 12:20 AM
Sitting idle and going camo.
cindar - 6/20/2013, 12:35 AM
@Ceejay, completely agree with you on that point. notice how all these people say they hated the first film, then they watched the second one and hated that, then the third and hated that. if your stupid enough to keep watching a franchise you hate, then you cant moan about them making a fourth one, because they know even these stupid people are still gonna go see it as well as the fans.
Whiteandgold - 6/20/2013, 12:48 AM
This looks good. Michael bay is the man.
eoin3 - 6/20/2013, 2:23 AM
It has the same flame decal pattern as Optimus...
jimoakley666 - 6/20/2013, 2:25 AM
That'd be cool if it WAS Optimus. Check out the bullet holes in it. However, if it WAS Optimus, surely it'd have an Autobots logo on the grille.

A reason for the rusty look would be a disguise to not be noticed from the events of the last movie. then years later, when crap starts happening again, he has to change his body again (same with the other bots)
DarthLaney - 6/20/2013, 5:04 AM
This is just Bay giving classic TF fans the bird!
