Prime's Smackdown Close-up

Yep more screenshots from the trailer, this time showing a blowup of the devastating blow to Optimus Prime. The detail is extraordinary but it is still hard to tell exactly what is hitting him. It possible in the first image there are tank tracks and some hieroglyphics in the second but there is also a ton of rust showing so its hard to tell for sure. Mostly simply posting the pictures because they are so fantastic looking. Thanks to Lynx for the pictures.

  2. SAw in this Weeks nuts magazine a (very short) preview of the Soundwave toy.

    They had it listed as transforming into a Robot, a Jet and a Satalite. This along with the regular stuff about him being a decepticon, comms guy etc.

    They had him listed at £13 from hasbro.co.uk

    Yeah, and the fuc... i mean, fact that he always wins in the end (omitting movie 86) doesn't matter, because he sometimes get hiss ass whooped... He should just kill every Con from the start of the movie, right? That would be soooo cool, if he was like, walkin god of war...

  13. Spoilers
    Optimus is going to get killed by this guy AKA Megatron V2. I only hope that he doesnt do the whole here is the matrix use it in our hour of need speech. I hope that Megatron, The fallen or Soundwave rip the matrix from his chest meaning they can bring unicron in the third film without the whole matrix power stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I don't think he's going to necessarily die..probably get the utter crap beat out of him around the middle of the movie to the point that he is barely functional....then when the rest of the autobots are facing insurmountable odds against the decepticons in the final battle...in flies prime linked with jetfire to save the day.

  15. Re: Anonymous from 2/06/2009 6:48 AM

    Those links pretty much settle the dispute, IMHO. I thought it was megatron before. Those pics just seal the deal.

    No Megs my ass.......

  16. Yeah Optimus is def getting his ass beat by Megatron again....I think Bay takes one of Megatrons fingers in the ass he loves him so much....

    Fuck Megatron!!!

  18. wow after all the times i watched the trailer and i never noticed that.

    yea i'd say 100% that it's megatron. no doubt about it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. in the hd trailer 1080p notice in one frame of the 0:18 second starscream spits some fluid on Sam....!!!! wonder what is it? If someone can get a screenshot and post it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The rust is odd to me. I find it a little hard to believe that something so advanced would even be made out of a metal that could rust.

    I mean they're alien robots millions of years old and from what I remember, their bodies are made up of nanites... or something along those lines when they were talking about Scorponok's tail.

    I guess the only explanation is that Megatron was considered dead and therefore his body could not maintain itself? But even still.. nanites or no nanites, why would such advance robots have metal that could rust in the first place?

    Oh and BTW, the CAPTCHA image isn't loading for Firefox. Not sure if it is just me or everyone. It works in EI, though.

    @ Anonymous (10:47AM) I noticed him spitting, too. Wasn't sure if I was seeing it right or if it was some kinda blurring going on.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I was just looking for the SS spitting bit and didn't really see what is being referred to. However, it occurred to me that when Sam is being pinned down in the following shot maybe the part where his arm is injured. He didn't appear to have the arm brace in that shot, so this might be where it gets worked in.

    ReplyDelete
  22. i think optimus prime is getting hit by megatron's claw/canon with the gold/yellowish metal on it. just a thought.

  27. Prime better not die in this movie. He might get his ass whipped, but he better not die. Don't people at Hasbro remember the HUGE public backlash they got when Prime died in the '86 movie; it made fans so angry, they brought him back to life. If they kill him off again, the People at Hasbro and Michael Bay better go into hiding because there is going to be a massive manhunt for them with a huge price on their heads. They better not make the same mistake.

    Even though I am 26, I still like my childhood heroes; and I don't like them getting killed. I didn't like them getting killed back then, and I won't like them getting killed now. Does anybody else feel the same way?

    Dude, it was 20 years ago. Now if Prime dies in the movie we still have cartoon, comic books, other toy lines... We right now have like 4, or more Optimus Primes at the same time, but then? There was only one Optimus Prime, and that's why it hit people so hard, when he died. So stop this panic.

    No. That's how the world goes, uncle Ben died, Superman died, so why Optimus can't die?

  35. How is it that nobody makes a point that Prime seems to be WAY UP in the air - and about to fall? What-/whoever smashes his face in, took him up high. I can't imagine the drop... Some flying ABot is gonna have to save his metal butt.

  36. im pretty sure there is blood coming out of primes nose in the 2nd picture

  37. "im pretty sure there is blood coming out of primes nose in the 2nd picture"

    it could be some kind of oil

  38. Megatron has most likely been "rebuilt". What would he have been rebuilt from that would rust? Most likely earth materials. But why would they rebuild him out of rusty parts? Another thing is....ever think that the "rusty" parts could be barnicles (or other sea creature thingies) from being in the sea for so long or something. Some may have fallen off (leaving residue) or still hanging on making it look like rust.

    Just a thought.................

    Also, Bumblebee had rust in his first alt mode and I think when he was in his robot mode too (old Camaro).

    Say what? This is the ONLY live action movie prime, the closest thing to G1 that we have, so unless there's going to be another interpretation of a LIVE TF's movie then it will still hit hard if Prime dies. I will personally throw my food and drink at the screen and walk out...

    "No. That's how the world goes, uncle Ben died, Superman died, so why Optimus can't die?"

    Because uncle Ben is some useless old man, a peripheral character - and Superman came back to life so what's your point again?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't think your average movie-goer is going to be sitting in theatre doing chemical equations. All they need to know is "metal + water = rust" and regardless, it would hardly be the most spurious claim the TF movie universe would have us believe.

    Also, I hope this battle is reverse of their epic fight in the animated movie -

    OPTIMUS: I would have waited an eternity for this! It's over Megatron.
    MEGATRON: Never!!!
    Optimus gets face knocked off, falls off cliff

  41. Oops, just noticed I spelled barnicles wrong. It's barnacles......:P

  42. For all the dumbasses out there, nothing beats the original; no other Prime beats the original Optimus Prime.

    I guess you don't care if the character dies becuase you never had any real life heroes to begin with. As an impressionable kid growing up, you always look for that positive role model; even though Prime was a cartoon, he was a positive role model and an excellent leader. That is why, even till this day some 20+ years later, us fans still love him, and his popularity only increases as the years go by. He won't be as good a role model as my dad, but it doesn't hurt to have more than one good role model.

    So, stop hating you dumb fuck. If you are not a true TF fan, don't visit this blog and say stupid shit.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think the Megatron idea is correct. Those comparison pics do look similar. I'm thinking that ILM put in the rust more for a realistic metal look rather than thinking about the idea of "cybertronian metal". Besides, I doubt the writers would have anybody but Megatron kill or beat the crap out of Prime.

    Also, that scene of Starscream chasing Shia, I think is just a model overlay to throw everyone off. I bet we'll find out that's really Megatron in that entire scene.

    Here's a story theory: The Fallen gets brought back at the end of this movie and goes off to get Unicron. Prime dies but his spark is retrieved and in the third, they merge his spark with Primus at the core of Cybertron who transforms into Cybertron Prime in order to fight off Unicron in the third movie.

    I think Bay realizes he really has to up the ante in each movie to make it worth it. This one will have a lot more bots and a lot more fighting. The next one HAS to have Unicron.

    OMG, so i have to cry when Optimus dies, to be a true fan? Niiiiiiice... BTW, yeah, i like Optimus, but hell, it's just a cartoon/movie character... Don't expect me to treat his death, like death of a father or someone else that is close to me... Geez, people, chill out. It's not real, ya know? And don't be a psychotic fan, who can't stand, that someone have diferent opinion than yours.

  46. If Optimus is going to have his butt handed to him, he should at least put up a good fight.

    In the first film, Optimus just kind of sat there and took the beatings for the most part. (In my fictionalversion of the film, Optimus gets a beat down {as he does in the film} but then instead of Sam killing Megatron, Optimus takes the AllSpark and punches Megatron through the chest with it.)

    In the sequel, Optimus should put up an amazing fight, thrashes a bunch of Decepticons, and then, (depending on how the movie will end/if there will be a third film) get his butt handed to him.

    As Kup put it: "This is Prime's fight!"

    ReplyDelete
  47. I wonder if megs says to optimus after the second ASS BEATIN he gave him was "OOPS MY BAD"

    ReplyDelete
  48. Orci said in one his interviews that they regretted making Optimus such a pussy in the first movie (something along the lines of wishing he got a few more shots in). It's hard to say if Primes the only one getting his ass beat in the trailer because we never see the condtion of his combatant. If they're going for a darker feel this time round, it's likely that Megatron (or whoever) is in just as rough a shape.

    ReplyDelete
  49. i just hope the other damn autobots will be more bad ass. prime needs some help. when they saw megatron they ran. if it wasnt for the military the autobots would have been destroyed

    ReplyDelete
  50. @: Anonymous at 2:46pm (mentioning Prime "Way UP in the air" )

    He isn't up in the air. If you can see the trailer again, they are actually near trees with rich green grass in the background. Maybe a park or wooded area.

    Also, again with Starscream spitting. There is definitely some kinda liquid coming from around his mouth area and spraying up towards Sam.

    In the shot with Sam being pinned down, it looks like his shirt has light stains on it... so it is probably just Starscream showing his disrespect for him. *shrug*

    ReplyDelete
  51. For me look like rust, if you think not,-ok!)
    And I am not from Poland...ha-ha)))
    Further, smurtguy --- gooooood))) ;P

    Bumblebee look rusty 'cause he was in "OLD" auto mode.Old,rusty, lots of scratching...you know.
    But Megatron is ReBuild, and into an alien tank, so I think rust on him is not very logical,IMHO.


    Guys, maybe Prime will die and then have a new body,maby hi will also ReBuild?

  53. So... Bumblebee rusted himself... for cover? :D

    Hm... The man who choose old Camaro mode for Bumblebee is M.Bay( or script writers), and only for more interesting sreenplay. Then he transforms into a new car, by own will.
    So, your question IS NOT CORRECT and without answer.
    We can't just ask Bumblebee for that.

    What I said(about rust), it's only my opinion, like all other guys doing here. Different man - different point of view.

    (гандон) :)

  54. why is Optimus not in battle mode..His mouth was exposed. Maybe he was sucker punched.

    ReplyDelete
  55. To anonymous at 11:53am 2/7/9: If you watch it frame by frame, Optimus DOES have his battlemask on, but it gets kicked off of his face, and goes flying past his head. I wonder what Starscream could be spitting? I didn't think robots would have saliva, LOL!!!!!Gross!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. you know i was reading all these comments and yall all seem to want unicron in the next film, but let me ask you this do we really need another galactus, i mean remember how they fucked him in rise of hte silver surfer.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think Megatron is rusting because wether or not he is alien and made of nanites, he is still made of metal that is subject to the laws of our SHARED universe.

    Considering that he was a jet and that cybertron didn't seem to be a very wet planet, I think it could be assumed that Megatron and many other bots had no need to be "rust proof." Maybe a bot who had a function/job that required a close proximity to water would resist rust. But I don't think Megatron fits the bill.

    Also, I would assume that the nanites would protect from rust or heal it to some extent, but in a case of major damage (Absorbing the Allspark through a gaping chest wound,) the nanites would be useless and when Megatron died, so did the nanites, I'm sure.

    I think a better question is why the F did Starscream bring Megs back unless he is planning some serious backstabbing in TF3? :D

    ReplyDelete
  58. Also, regarding the rust... The first movie aknowledged that rusting was possible when Ironhide complained about Mojo pissing on his foot. He probably would have complained about landing in the pool if anyone was there to hear it?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Maybe hotcake. Though to be fair, i think he flashboiled the pool. I'm not sure there was any water left in that pool afterward but i might be mistaken. The heat alone from his body after landing may have dried him off as well.

    ReplyDelete
  60. As we all know the autobot leader optimus prime is "colored "
    (red,blue&chrome). There is a autobot known as ULTRA MAGNUS who is all "white" .Does that make by default of definition of "colored" prime a black character. Which would make the leader of the autobits past and present a black leader.
    No not racist, pro black or pro white , just a question.
    I'm thinking to deep perhaps. Crazy huh? Open for discussion.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Good point, Michael. The pool WAS bubbling, wasn't it? :P But I kind of remember water dripping off of Ironhide? It's been a while since I watched it but I thought I recall him looking like he was dripping.

    Maybe when he transformed something about the process dried him off. The truck wasn't wet at all, despite him being in a pool.

    ReplyDelete
  62. when the chihuahua pissed on Ironhide he said it was going to rust...so they do actually rust

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd say, it looks like the hand of on of the constructicons. Just look at the top picture, you can clearly see a very large, and undetailed finger. It looks like that hand is formed from the shove lof some construction vehicle. From what we've seen so far, the only characters on that scale are the constructicons.

    Besides, even if it was the fallen, the fingers would be more detailed.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Man his face mask is totally shredded after that blow. And is it me, or is there "splashes" of some red coloured stuff that may or may not represent blood, or at least the "look" of blood at the 21 second mark on the HD version.

    ReplyDelete
  65. i think its that giant robot demolisher foot that hit optimus

  66. I Don't want Prime to die but if It Means it will bring peace to the planet.....It is what he would of wanted..... I agree with the person who commented on 4/19/2009 and What this Person said.............Prime better not die in this movie. He might get his ass whipped, but he better not die. Don't people at Hasbro remember the HUGE public backlash they got when Prime died in the '86 movie
