Autobot Fleet, Helicopter Painting Pictures

A few pictures from past Transformers sets have come up again. First up is a gallery of pictures that show the work that went into converting helicopters into the Shanghai police copters used for the Bethlehem set back in June. Below is a before, during, and after pictures but a whole lot more are at the full huge gallery here.
Thanks to Mike taking and providing the pictures for us.

Spoiler-TV posted to pictures Queensway Bridge, Long Beach, CA that shows off the entire known Autobot fleet (except for the always absent Ratchet).

  1. Maybe I missed something a while back, but where is Ratchet?

  2. Y'know... with the fact that the Volt was supposedly added on as just a sort of extra... I wouldn't be surprised if we see him used as cannon fodder (basically like what Jazz was in the first movie... the only Autobot to die)

    maybe Ratchet and Arcee are elsewhere during these scenes.

  3. maybe there is always pictures of optimus prime, ironhide, sideswipe, bumblebee, chevy trax, skids and jolt is because (my own opinion) the new autobots came to earth on the ark and ratchet, arcee, prowl & wheeljack (unknow if there in but i think so) are there guarding it from decepticons while the others go find jetfire or something

  4. Maybe Rathcet died.

    Hopefully he went out in a blaze of glory! Actually, in Michael Bay terms this means: Going offline in about 5 seconds in a shot or two that is shaky and shot from an extreme distance as not to convey any emotion or awesomeness.

    Seriously though, I can picture Rathcet being the Autobot to stay behind with the rest of the humans (and maybe Wheeljack and Arcee?) to protect from Decepticon attack there. Maybe this time he'll live up to title of "Medical Officer" and actually repair some Autobots. Maybe he's the one who fixes up Jetfire?

    Nice to see a shot of MOST of the Autobot cast together in a scene. Now all we need is the Osprey (Springer), Saab Aero-X (Wheeljack), Hound (Hummer HX) and Arcee (motorcycles).

    Yes, I realize that none of the above characters have really been confirmed, but one can always dream.:)

  6. I'm just glad the Autobots got some back-up this time around. Decepicons seem to be everywhere and Autobots seem to be a dime a dozen.

    i think rachet and arcee will be taking up some positions maybe in the rear, acree had a sniper rifle right? in the comic?. but i would assume rachet would have to fix jetfire after he is betrayed by starscream and company. not knowing that they have betrayed the cybertron way of peace and happiness goes to optimus and friends to help.

  9. There has been rumor that way which Decepticons are trying to use to destroy Autobots and take over the universe is an Allspark fragment. But it' not. It's Sam's information about 13 Ancient Transformers. Maybe when the Fallen wakes up, he makes deal with Starscream and Soundwave and they are trying to get that information. But I have no idea how the Fallen could use it. What his master Unicron wants in movie continuity? Cybertron is already ruined and that planet isn't as big as Earth. Earth is much bigger than even Unicron.

  10. I mean, is Unicron in Transformers 3 trying to destroy Earth?

  12. Did I talk about release date of Transformers 3 ? NO!

    Btw, Jedi Master Starkiller is annoying here as he is in the Star Wars RPG.

  15. By the way, do not say anything about Hound, Prowl or Wheeljack until even some information confirms them. They won't surely appear in this movie.

  17. "....show the entire Autobot fleet.."

    Jesus Christ, why are all the new Autobots so damn small? This sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's plot of Movie continuity and Transformers: Animated. In both stories Decepticons are bigger, stronger and more powerful than Autobots. But working together makes Autobots to be match for even most powerful enemies.

  19. Tiny autobots, get ready to be squashed by us decepticons!

  20. the twins will combine together when the heat gets turned up to be the size of prime or ironhide. don't worry. plus starscream and megs were only two worth a shit. bonecrusher got his face crushd with one punch and then his head chopped off, bumblebee beat the shit out of barricade, devesator was done for had it not been for megs(arm chopped off and rockets) and blackout took one shot to the dick from lennox. starscream and megs were incharge of protecting an entire planet of course their gonna be somethan serious.

    Autobots are the scientists or civilians type robots of Cybertron hence their small size & geeky looking appearance while the Decepticons are the military robots which is why they mostly can fly & look far more larger & dangerous in appearance.

    What do you mean like Jurassic Park III? There were four years between the first and second Jurassic Park films, and four years between the second and third. It's not that long. Now the Terminator films on the other hand, took like seven to eleven years for the sequel.
