Ice Cream Truck and Other Pics

The Stop Sector Seven forum has posted additional pictures from "an airforce base out in California" (that I am guessing is Edwards but lot of bases out there) that provides an excellent shot of the mysterious ice cream truck. It also shows Optimus Prime, Ironhide, and the Chevy Trax.

I am convinced that truck is a Transformer. It’s been seen on two separate sets on two different coasts in the proximity of other TF vehicles. The cost of transporting the vehicle cross country isn't worth it just for Bay's nonexistent misinformation campaign. With the Trax and the pink truck in the same set, I am wondering if this disproves the theory that the Twins are the truck and later convert to the Trax and Beat. Maybe the vehicle is Kup. Way back in February, Bay had suggested there might be a "geriatric robot". Thanks to Michael for the link.

  1. ... Or mabey since the trax and the ice cream truck are on the same set, mabey this is where the twins get their new alt forms?

  2. I was thinking that too. I wonder what purpose a geriatric robot would serve!

  3. Maybe the geriatric TF will help tie the story line of the Fallen into the actual movie...he'll tell old TF lore to blend the past with the present...

  6. Something's just occurred to me, although I support the possibility of the ice-cream truck being Kup... consider the colour scheme. I seriously doubt Kup would opt for an alt mode adopting Arcee's colour scheme. Considering the size of other Tfs in the first film... a motor-bike would jsut be far too small to be realistic, it'd just get stepped on. I do think, however, a small pink & white ice-cream truck would convert into the ideal size robot for Arcee, IF she's in the movie.

    I was glad the pink 'bike wasn't opted for in the first movie but whether or not she shows up in the 2nd movie I don't mind... as long as there's plenty other bulky heavy TFs on show! It really would have been hard to beliebe the Autobots victored over the Decepticons if only 4 'male' Autobots and 1 'female' Autobot considering the size and bulk of the Decepticons, she would have looked puny (no offence to any female fans, I'm just relating to the leaked Arcee concept of movie #1).

    Fingers crossed for a September teaser/trailer...

  7. skyfire IS going to be in the film, but a decepticon. that is just a transport plane for set pieces.
    ice cream truck would be too big for arcee, when they transform they become alot bigger than you expect. maybe its alpha trion, lol

    Skyfire/Jetfire is supposedly the SR71 spy plane that was seen in earlier pics.

    WHAT THE? IS THAT GENERAL TALKING TO THAT ICE CREAM TRUCK??? HMMMMM, I THINK THIS IS 'A VERY OLD' AUTOBOT...

    Maybe one of the 1st 13 to be born on CYBERTRON? Maybe so.

    Man I can't wait for this movie. It looks sooooo G1 and waaaaay more Sci-Fi!!!

  10. Few things, just wanted to say I hope for all living and breathing Transformers fans, that Arcee is not in this movie. She would completely ruin it.

    As of for the Ice Cream truck, it really doesn't cost that much money at all to haul it around. I still think it's fake.

    There's always someone in the crowd who thinks so. :)

  12. I hope Arcee IS in the move, and I hope she's a motorcycle.

  13. that ice cream truck is maybe Arcee.Size are colour are perfect for her character.

  14. i do have a theory on the Chevy Beat and the Chevy Trax...there's a street racing team lead by Autobot Big Daddy...two of the members are a twin pair of streetracers named Hubs and Greaser...the interesting thing is...one is green...the other is reddish orange...could this be identity of the twins (Beat and Trax)?...who knows...just having some fun theorizing...

    peace

  15. The ice cream truck could be Alpha Trion. It would be a good way to include the geriatric transformer that Bay has mentioned but also a link into the story of The Fallen, if indeed The Fallen will actually be in the movie.

    Alpha Trion could have desperately escaped exile and hiding on Cyberton to alert the Autobots to the impending doom for not only their home planet, but the universe itself with the return of The Fallen......just a thought.

  16. I don't wanna see no Alpha Trion ice cream truck.

  17. Arcee will ruin TF2.

  18. I'm pretty sure, as someone else saud, that Ironhide being in that transport plane is not something being filmed, but rather that's how they got the truck to the air force base. However, the fikm supposedly opens in China, and the autobots had to get across the ocean somehow...

    Also consider that the ice cream truck is in the chinese city scenes filmed at the steel plant. So, if it's also at this airbase then, assuming it is a transformer, this location is supposed to be in China somewhere, or the ice cream truck travelled away from China with the autobots.

    The transport plane carrying Ironhide is NOT Skyfire.

    I don't see the connection people have tried to make between the ice cream truck and Alpha Trion or a "geriatric" autobot. Just because the autobot is old, doesn't mean his alt mode has to be old. I'm sceptical that the ice cream truck is an autobot at all. My skepticism stems from the fact that the ice cream truck is so filthy. It's also very goofy looking.

  21. I think you guys are all looking at it the wrong way. Remember in Mission City how Sam stumbled and caused the Allspark to release its energy? That ended up creating several newly sparked bots, and they all had... unusual forms. It makes the most sense to me for the ice cream truck to be one of the Earth-born bots, rather than a Cybertronian Transformer.

    If he will debute in China, than how the heck did he get Allspark powered? And what was he doing in all those years? Stand there and rust?

  23. I agree with anonymous that just becuase the Ice Cream truck is old doesn't mean its alt mode is old. Bumble Bee started of as a beat up old car

    ReplyDelete
  24. Heyy what's wrong with Arcee? Huh? In the 80's movie she saved Daniel's life and supported Hot Rod/Rodimus a whole lot.

    This is a rumor and POSSIBLE SPOILER, but Arcee and Bumblebee might be boy and girl friend in this movie or at least love interest.

    Should be interesting. And yes, Trax is most likey Cliffjumper, Windcharger, or Gears. The Beat is Skids (a lesser know G1 bot) and they seem like the "immature kid" type based on their pictures that were recently released.
