Transformers: Dark of the Moon First Teaser Trailer and Poster

The first teaser trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon is now live. Links below to MB.com, Apple Trailers and YouTube.

Also, as you can see to the left, the actual official teaser poster for Transformers 3. Not really sure what is going on in that regard as the Prime poster is official in some capacity (someone with access to the Prime model to create it) and Hasbro is using it. For my purposes I consider one the Hasbro Teaser Poster and the other the Paramount teaser poster.
Apple Trailers | MichaelBay.com | YouTube HD


The leaked description is accurate, here is my summary.
Begins with words of July 20th, 1969 (date of the moon landing)
Apollo 11 traveling to and orbiting the moon.
Cut to words: "A Generation's Greatest Achievement"
Archival footage of landing and saying "The Eagle has landed"
Cut to words: "Our Nation's Proudest Moment"
Re-creating walking on moon with "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
Cut to words: "A Secret Hidden for 40 Years."
While Walter Cronkite reports that Apollo 11 is out of communications range on the far side of the moon, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are really investigating a crashed starship full of Transformers. Armstrong reports "the hull has been breached. Extensive damage. No signs of life or movement... You cannot believe what we are seeing. ...We are not alone after all...
Cut to camera traveling across the moon surface, to and through the ship, into a Transformers face (with "mustache"), and continuing into his eye and insides that change to the Dark of the Moon logo followed by the release date of July 1st, 2011.

Based on the brief images of dead Transformers, I suspect this is the Ark as the faces showed an Autobot structure. We saw the Nemesis marooned elsewhere (Mars I think) in Revenge of the Fallen and it had to have been fighting something. Based on the face and the mustache, I suspect the Transformers at the end of the sequence is Alpha Trion, one of the original 13 Transformers and protector of Cybertron. Thanks to Michael, V1p3rs and Rak33n for the YouTube links.

Update: Added link to HD version on YouTube (great for looking at full screen). I have the embed version above in HD also. If interested in screen captures, TFW2005 has posted many here.

    ReplyDelete
  7. holy cow! that was awesome, is that the decepticon ship or autobot ship on the moon?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  9. That's gotta be the Einstein bot

    ReplyDelete
  10. any thoughts on who that is?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Zeta Prime?

    ReplyDelete
  12. @ 7:20 thats archival witwicky robot mode :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. it has kinda the unicron colors, with the yellow. and you know bay always likes to give fans misinformation. like when he told people unicron wouldnt be in it, then the twins wouldnt either.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This trailer is PERFECT for the first film. That's the only problem I have with it. I watched it and I'm thinking, "This seems like it should be the trailer for the first movie!" Anyway, great teaser. The TF at the end is DEFINITELY Alpha Trion or Vector Prime, not the Einstein bot. The tone was great and seems a lot more serious than the slop-together mess ROTF. Can't wait to see more!

    ReplyDelete
  15. only one transformer I know has a beard that magnificent. Hello Alpha Trion.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Orbulous, Look, It's Unicron!!!! Totally Unicron.

    ReplyDelete
  17. yea deff not the einstein bot haha most likely alpha trion

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thats prime being uncovered! holy crap! omg Now i can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  19. It could be the Junkion Wreck-Gar

    ReplyDelete
  20. Primus? Basically the Transformer "God."

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aplha, no doubt

    ReplyDelete
  22. i wonder if theres gunna be any action and battle scenes taking place in the 60s and 70s.... that would be intresting

    ReplyDelete
  23. I wanted more action but great story <3

    ReplyDelete
  24. AWESOOMMMMMEEEEE

    Yeah I'm thinking that's Alpha Trion or something.

    Actually I'm thinking about peeing in my pants right now.


    *proceeds to watch it again*

    *and again*

    ReplyDelete
  25. could be alpha trion but other then his face look at his shoulders

    ReplyDelete
  26. even if this film is just more of the same, I WANT MORE OF THE SAME, KEEP IT UP, KEEP IT COMING Mr Bay!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Michael bay! This is beyond the best trailer ever!

    ReplyDelete
  28. O hells yes!!! This def made me wantin more!!!! Dam tease!!! :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. heres what I dont get, if that is Alpha Trion, Why isnt he in a Cybertronian state like the other autobots when they arrived?

    ReplyDelete
  30. maybea it's Sentinal Prime?

    ReplyDelete
  31. come on guys. just look at this imgage of unicron. look at the face! http://www.unicron.us/tf2003/cartoonpix/unicron1a.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  32. 8D <-- my expression throughout the whole thing

    ReplyDelete
  33. Maybe... the High Councel left their dying planet or planet at war and like separated so the Decepticons wouldn't find them and kill them all! and Earth and the moon have a gravitational pull soo maybe they crashed or were shot down!!! THIS IS AWESOME!!! wat do u pplz think of my theory???

    ReplyDelete
  34. ok, this should have been the first movie trailer. Dark of the moon is more epic than both of the previous films, and thats based just on this trailer.

    It doesnt look like Alpha Trion to me, more like Rodimus Prime or Hotrod, however seeing as the colour scheme matches the firetruck it may be Sentinel Prime.

    "holy cow! that was awesome, is that the decepticon ship or autobot ship on the moon?"

    Probably autobot as their are a bunch of dead warriors. The decepticon ship is on mars or something...

    I know nothing in this trailer suggests it, but i feel this film should have Unicron in it. Its the final film, its bigger than the others and they might aswell pull out all the stops and throw in the Devil of the Transformers franchise.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Spark500;
    yh i think thats it. Its mainly the plot from Transformers Armada with a few tweaks here and there. It seems that the Nemesis (In ROTF) and this ship (Probably the ark) battled and this ship ended up crashing on the moon.

    ReplyDelete
  36. wasn't there talk of time travel in the third movie or something? And since Vector Prime had the ability to manipulate time, surely that's who we're looking at here

  41. Something really weird on this teaser...
    Let's see..
    Transformers1 teaser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ItK90yvA44
    Producers&director listed at the end...

    Transformers2 teaser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maPFhlFfJG8&feature=fvw
    Producers,director and cast listed at the end...

    This Transformers3 teaser it's like the first movie without any of the cast being listed.
    The big question now is WHY ?
    Why not revealing the cast on this teaser?
    On the first movie it can be understood.. but why the teaser for the 3rd movie is not listing the cast like the teaser of the 2nd movie?
    It doesn't make any sense. Really.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ok guys this is not the ark this is an autobot war ship in this guy looks like more vector prime im guessing he and other autobots scape from the civil war it look like more into G1 witch is great and if im right maybe he is the fire truck there is another rumor that the ferrari is rodimus or windcharger will see.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That was Awsome!!!!! I watch it twices because was so good!!! Great job Micheal Bay well done! I should give two thumb up for that one!!!!!!!!!! I think you have really good chance begin the top movie for 2011!!#1 Here is to 2011! Cheers!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Absolutly going to be the best transformers hands down!!! July 1st 2011 I'm waiting!!! Already seen the preveiw about 5 times and have the download on my iPod! Furiouse I saw it later due to the michael bays website and apple... Totally worth the wait!!! Next I will be at Narnia's 3D showing to watch it on the big screen!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Sentintal Prime?

    ReplyDelete
  46. alpha trion its not one of the originals asshole its vector prime and this maybe a war ship like this guys think to me its to small to be the ark.

    ReplyDelete
  47. If you dont want to pay for the whole movie(Narnia), can't you just pay to watch up to the TF3 trailer then go and get your full refund?

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's Omega Supreme.

  49. this trailer means nothin the film will fail roise topmodel will ruin everything

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm still peeing on my pants.

    ReplyDelete
  51. seen this trailer like 10 times and every time it's still like the first! damn this is gonna be great, why couldn't tomorrow be 7/1/11....finally looks like a great story behind the action...soo can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Scorpio you are beyond retarded

    When was hotrod old?
    When was he not red?
    NEVER

    Did alpha trion have horns?
    Did alpha trion have facial hair(metal)?
    YES

    yet your conclusion is that its hot rod
    hmm

    other logical answers would be sentinel prime or vetor sigma from armada
    but 100% not hotrod

    ReplyDelete
  53. def alpha trion in the end, when they first walk in and the move the dirt around it def looks like hot rod's face 1:12 in the trailer on youtube

    ReplyDelete
  54. hahahahs Scorpio you just make me laugh

    ReplyDelete
  55. In previous updates it's been said that the CG is only 80% complete, if this is 80% I am totally satisfied!

    ReplyDelete
  56. okokok.... Can't this ship be the ark, no matter how it got there? Like these guys are just in stasis lock. Bumblebee wakes up and goes to earth. Prime, ratchet, ironhide and jazz head down once bumblebee meets sam. The rest show up in ROTF however ways. And wheeljack/einstein bot(which bay just said in the press junket could make "new cool shit") pieces back the rest and they come down in DOTM. Only reason I say this is that the round head looks like a constructicon(maybe nemesis/ark battle that crashed it) and the slumped over bot in the chair would be prime i presume..

    ReplyDelete
  57. This is what I'm taking from the trailers:

    Whether its Vector, Sentinel, or Alpha Trion will be well debated until the full trailer comes out. My question is all three are autobots. Where is the autobot symbol on this particular transformer?

    The prior two teaser trailers ended with the symbol of the two factions, first autobots and second with decipticons. This ended with no symbol....

    Lastly, we do not know if the ship seen with the astronauts is connected to the one with the golden transformer. You'll notice that the two astronauts are seen heading back to the lunar module. Its not like they woke him up. Its possible we are seeing two different scenes put together here.

    No ready to ditch the Unicron plot just yet....

    ReplyDelete
  58. Also, once the camera enters the eye of the golden transformer, it looks similar to the inside of Unicrons planet mode. Similar to the way he destroys planets from the G1 movie.....

    ReplyDelete
  59. you can tell it was part of the same scene because when the sand pulls back you can start to see his face

    Same scene is same

    ReplyDelete
  60. look again, there is no way the sand transformer and the golden transformer at the end is the same.......

    ReplyDelete
  61. yes there is now way, what with them having the exact same face :/

    ReplyDelete
  62. ok its not the same transformer, but its definately not unicron,

    im not saying unicron isnt in the film (he probably isnt anyway)

    im just saying that particular robot isnt unicron, what with him looking very much like an autobot (blue eyes) and not menacing at all

    also even if it is somewhere else there is no structure bigger then unicron, so for us to have gone through the hole to unicron is propostorous

    but he could still be in the film, just saying thats not him

    ReplyDelete
  63. why is everyone going to Narnia... when they can wait to see it with Tron

    ReplyDelete
  64. Good god! Stop saying the Nemesis is on Mars!

    http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/8/87/Nemesis-ROTFlocation.jpg

    It clearly isn't unless Mars spontaniously obtained a ringed gas-giant for a moon.

    ReplyDelete
  65. thier saying its on mars because they are retarded

    ReplyDelete
  66. The Golden Robot guy in the trailer looks like Peter Cullen. :-D HAH!

    ReplyDelete
  67. my dad works with one of the sets in new york and he told me not to look up crap about the film online because 99 percent of it is wrong....

    ReplyDelete
  68. Who the f is Alpha Trion? lol. Being old school comic fan...

    Nice trailer. But, oddly, Sector 7 never mentioned this as being known in the first movie. So either they didn't know or we have a continuity plot hole.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Whose your daddy now? Alpha Trion!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Remember that Yellow Datsun????? hummmmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  71. The robot in the sand is Bumblebee IMO. The whole shipwreck screams Autobots.This trailer is kick ass and I can watch it over and over about a hundred times and expect a new one around Superowl time. 8]

    I'll take the whole movie just like this, 3D not needed, this is AWESOME.

    DON'T LET US DOWN THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I wanted some more action but anyways great stuff. like it..

    ReplyDelete
  73. It doesn't make sense, but the TF in the sand reminds me of Optimus Prime. The horn like pieces on the side of his head look the same.

    One of the other bots we see looks like Ironhide to me (1:34 on the left).

    ReplyDelete
  74. Later, the Decepticons attack Alpha Trion's workshop in search of the Key to Vector Sigma. Successfully obtaining it, Megatron uses Vector Sigma to give life to his Stunticons as Trion leds the Autobots into the depths of Cybertron. At Prime's suggestion, several Cybertronian shuttle craft are rebuilt to resemble Earth jets, to be used as a new team combat the Stunticons. Without the key, Vector Sigma could not be activated, and so Alpha Trion sacrificed himself to activate Vector Sigma and give life to these jets - the Aerialbots. Trion merged with Vector Sigma, but also apparently coexisted both within the computer to inform Optimus of the key's destructive power on Earth.

  77. no this is totally Sunstreaker!
    cuz it's yellow and looks exactly like the concept I've seen on the internet.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Bay's version of ALpha Trion... very nice. The race to 2011 box office champ has officially begun once again.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I've watched it 10 times now. :D

    I have to say that if NO ONE leaked any information about those big closed sets and pre-announcement CG footage (while it was in the making) from this teaser, then you can be sure we're going to see a LOT MORE amazing stuff come out for the movie itself far beyond what we've already seen being captured here. I'm so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Well, everybody seems convinced it's Alpha Trion. As a fan primarily of the comics (and one who distances himself from 'fans' who know of nothing other than the G1 cartoon and the tiresomely over-referenced animated movie), I really couldn't care less if it is or not.
    A couple of things to bear in mind; firstly, I've seen a couple of comments here stating "it must be X because he has colour scheme Y". Only a handful of characters in the movies so far have had colour schemes relevant to their G1 appearances, so that means absolutely nothing.
    Secondly, is anybody under the illusion that whoever the character is, he's going to escape the concept of the random nameslap? They may have learned since the 2nd movie, but somehow I doubt it.

    One thing I have to say... After over a decade, I finally stopped visiting Transformers message boards a year or two ago. I became bored to tears of people wanting characters and situations from the animated movie being dragged into the live action ones, which frankly shows a very limited and blinkered knowledge of Transformers. Unicron has been done to death, and it would be a mistake having him in the live action movies. In animated shows, where the Transformers actually are the main focus, it's just about doable, having a robot battling a planet-sized enemy (particularly with their cavalier approach to size and scale). However, these are live action films with a human cast; I doubt that even Bay would stretch things that much to send Shia into space to battle a planet. Dramatically, it's a no-go; Megatron baiting Sam is one thing, you just wouldn't be able to get the same thing with Unicron. Not to mention that the Fantastic Four sequel already had Galactus (of sorts).

    Oh yeah, the trailer. Looks pretty damned good to me. So long as, tonally, the film itself is like it throughout (without Bay's *ahem* comedy), then we could be back on track with the franchise. Still early days, so we shall see...

  81. @ ian hewett... you suck !

    ReplyDelete
  82. Come on guys take a look at the caracters and watch G1 eps this movie is about G1 we know we have silverbolt and hopefully the aerial bots and this guy from the teaser looks more to alpha trion so what we have so far ? well the golden edge of cybertron the nemesis crash on one of saturn moons this ship crash in our moon witch tells us that long time ago before the cube got lost it was the civil war witch drag this to ships in battle and at the end both got fuck up and crash silverbolt maybe the one telling optimus about alpha trion and a possible bridge to come back in time and change everything that is just me but it looks like this movie was made for us G1 fans... Thanks M.Bay and E.Kruger !

    ReplyDelete
  83. @ 2:13 Unicron or The Matrix?

    ReplyDelete
  84. no this is totally Sentinel Prime!

    ReplyDelete
  85. that head in "sand" looks like Optimus prime :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. @Anonymous 12/09/2010 7:09 AM: if there is time travel... then Sam would be meeting Carly in the past and not in the present? Or Sam travel in the past changes the present to an alternate future...?
    We know Carly boss is a Pretender so far... so is Carly really what she is supposed to be or not?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Anonymous 6.56: You've just summed up exactly what I said about message boards by acting like a childish idiot. How about backing up what you've just posted with opinions and thoughts (and perhaps a username) instead of moronic YouTube-style flame-baiting?

    I've been a fan for over 26 years, staying with the US and UK Marvel comics throughout their respective runs, adapted with the changes (though not blindly liking everything that was presented), not getting caught in the rut of the cartoon and animated movie (as much as I enjoyed both, there is far more to Transformers lore than either). I'm entitled to my opinion, and have the backbone to not hide behind anonymity. I was hoping for serious debate instead of name calling. Shame.

    ReplyDelete
  88. hahaha whatare we talking about??? the head in the 'sand' has the upper part looking like the 'gold/yellow' one were trying to figure out but not the same 'cheek bone and nose' structure as the 'gold/yellow' one... hopefully the news will get out on who this is.

    ReplyDelete
  89. CHANGE ON THE PLAN!!! Pause at 1:19-1:20 you have to be EXACT!!! Now look carefully... IT LOOKS LIKE OPTIMUS PRIME!!!

  90. Spark500 - I see what you mean. Just about. :)

  91. It's totally Alpha Trion. *happy dance*

    ReplyDelete
  92. So anybody notice the NASA dude in the recording room in the trailer is the military commander from the first two movies?

    ReplyDelete
  93. So nobody thinks it's the crashed ark? Imconvinced I see prime bumblebee a construticon the yellow dude, and a bunch of slumped.over dudes

    ReplyDelete
  94. The character in the sand at 1:19 - 1:22 looks an awful lot like the red transformer face we saw in Chicago.. (Hot Rod????) Check it out!!

    ReplyDelete
  97. why assuming that the astrounats entering in the big spaceship and the final shot of the robot are part of the same sequence? probably the astronauts discoverys in fact the ark and giant planet robot at the end is unicron.

    ReplyDelete
  98. check out these pics from way back of Alpha Trion. the face and head are pretty spot on so we know it's him. one of the first 13 transformers.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Sure the trailer's good. Yeah the tone is good so there's hope - beyond the Carly/Michaela switch - that DOTM will close out this film series, for now.

    If E. Kruger's natural dark side can balance the humor that Bay/Hasbro wants (and had with NO.1) then we cant sit back and enjoy. Hopefully get to know some robots better.

    But surely, as some of you Anons have said, there w/could be a major continuity plot hole if this isn't the Ark reanimating and reassembling the Autobots we know from these films.

    At the very least, there are so many secrets - how they clean up Section 7/Simmons not knowing or speaking about the Ark or Prime & co. - that you can lose track. Just big overlapping illogical loops here: "yeah we got this Megatron iced down and, yeah, this CUBE has powered all of our tech advances but we don't/won't watch over them Moon-based robots."

    My eyes will roll if there are more stupid human beings (especially a clueless Sam) in DOTM. What the entire movie series seems to lack, and what the comics & TV shows always recognized, is a clear foundation & link from the past.

    The movies keep making it up as they go along: CUBE coordinates on glasses, Hoover Dam lair, Seekers for Energon, a sun-killer in a pyramid (?!), Matrix of Leadership not found by Indiana Jones; now keeping this spacecraft (Ark?) hush-hush for 40 years...

    I'd prefer a time-space, back-from-the-future mess than any more newly-made up "discoveries."

    Thanks for your insights!

    Holy mother of all that is good and pure, this is awesome!!! I almost wet my pants to LionBoogy :D

    @anon 12/09/2010 9:46 AM:
    Yes I am! It's defenitly The Ark, no doubt it's another ship.

    And everyone who still is guessing the transformer in the sand, (first I thought it was Bumblebee) it's Optimus Prime, no discussion there, watch the screen captures on TFW2005, it's in link in the text above for those who can't read.

    And why is everybody talking about Unicron?? There is no big planet size robot in the teaser!'The yellow bot, who probably will be Alpha Trion imo, is an Autobot, bc of the blue eyes! Unicron is no Autobot.

    ReplyDelete
  101. That is Alpha Trion and No...Unicron is not in this movie. The Transformer in the sand is not an Autobot.

    According to the comics...

    ReplyDelete
  102. If thats not Alpha Trion then it might be The Last Autobot? Maybe the ship was a decepticon prison ship and they captured whoever that is and was gonna ring him to the fallen and mabey they crashed because the gravity feilds between earth and the moon and it crashed on the moon?

    ReplyDelete
  103. The bot in the sand looks like prime, but his optic is pretty busted up, i think he is Ultra Magnus :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. I wound if this trailer is in the beginning of the movie! If it autobot spaceship,and maybe that the work of Shockwave who did that.

    ReplyDelete
  105. does anyone know where i can download this trailer??

  109. Finally, the trailer that makes these past eleven months worth the wait.

    That main robot at the end looks like Alpha, I concur, but it could also be Silverbolt. Remember, he was portrayed as a medieval knight kind of character. It could also be Vector Prime, guardian of time, however...

    Primus knows. We wait, and hope...

    @anon 2:47 and 2:48:
    Wikipedia is not dependable, it's only guessing what they do on TF3, all what's said there, we read months ago. And they can't even mention the rumor that the yellow bot in the teaser is most likely Alpha Trion? C'mon!

    And why don't people watch the screen captures on the link to TFW2005, you can clearly see that the bot in the sand has the horns of Optimus Prime. I don't think Bay would give another Autobot such same features.

    ReplyDelete
  111. What they are saying in 1:32-1:35?

    ReplyDelete
  112. if it was unicron why would they make him small and not planet size. he destroys planets by eating them, if they made him smaller they would take the complete character of what unicron stood for and make it crap.

    im throwing the idea of alpha trion or vector prime.

    ReplyDelete
  113. this is the most idiotic thing I've seen ,even a 2 minute trailer is full of plotholes ....we have the iceman, now we find robots in space but lo and behold they fall down in balls of fire and we're all suprised,

    Is Michael Bay trying to convince every one that they are right in calling him an no talent egomaniac or does he just rightfully know that his audience are a bunch of 12 yr olds who discuss a robots mustache for two weeks on the internet ?

  114. i really dont understand this because in the first movie they tell us they have found the "iceman" aka megatron and the allspark but never mentioned the space ship ( the ark ) on the moon with more transformers. i feel like this movie is going to confuse some people but overall i love this teaser and watched it like 10 times already, can't wait for july 1st now =)

  115. well for the robot in the sand (if Optimus) you have to remember some of us are use to the fire-flamed Optimus, G1 Optimus or other cartoons. You have to think of a Cybertron Version of Optimus this might be him... just saying think of where they just came from...

  117. its def not unicron...unicron eats planets and hes friggin huge! so no unicron

    ReplyDelete
  118. Definitely an Autobot ship if not the Ark due to the features of the cybertronians inside. The Autobot in the sand actually resembles Bumblebee more than optimus if it is even a relevant/familiar character...

    ReplyDelete
  119. for those complaining about them not mentioning the ship on the moon, they never mentioned that rover getting crushed in the 1st movie either, or if they did, it wasn't a main point. they could very well have been hanging out on the moon for all those years.

    ReplyDelete
  120. is it just me or does "Alpha Trion" look like he has a harness holding him or something strapping him into something? Almost like he was flying the ship?

    ReplyDelete
  121. You guys are thinking WAY too hard about all of this. haha :) :) :)

    But I do have to look back and admit that The Fallen was kind of a wiener. He's supposed to be this grand awesome evil dude. And it turns out he's a total wimp.

    I hope any supposedly awesome robot dudes in DOTM will BE awesome and not idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  122. As good as the trailer is and for me who cares if it doesn't fit the first two movies. I wouldn't care if this movie stood alone. If this is just a taste of what this movie is, I think I'm going to enjoy the main dish!

    Also, above the awesome teaser we just got, the music in the second half of the teaser is just freaking awesome. I want an entire track of just that music which I might have to get if they release it on CD...talk about dark and man, my heart starts beating to that track...this joint is TIIIIGHT!!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Phew... I'm so glad that's NOT a Unicron...

    ReplyDelete
  124. if it was unicron...it is just a teaser right? by people saying he's huge, etc. we all know how big he is...after he goes into the robots eyes it's just a tease pic of unicron. something for us to kick around. i do not think unicron will be in this movie but that image looks like him as it fades away...you all cannot deny that

    ReplyDelete
  125. It the yellow transformer is an autobot and maybe Sentinal Prime, Optimus's fater

    ReplyDelete
  126. LOOK AT THE TRAILER FRAME BY FRAME, IT IS NOT ALPHA TRION! He has wings, the Aerial Bot facial structure, clearly Silverbolt or someone similar.

    @anon 12/09/2010 7:21 PM:
    No way dude,that's not Bumblebee, didn't you watch the screen captures on TFW2005? I know it makes no sense it's Optimus, bc Optimus comes from outer space in the 1st, but it has its "double horns" left and right of the head, Bumblebee doesn't have that. I'm very excited about how this plot is going to work out!

    @Hud:
    You're wrong, the announcement teaser from the 1st film IS IN the 1st film! At the pentagon they compare the sounds from that signal from that exact footage with the signal they just got when they breached on that military base and they show the picture from that Beagle message.

    @anon 12/09/2010 2:19 AM:
    It's 'Bayformers', why can't Alpha Trion have wings? The Aerialbot facial structure? I'm not saying you're wrong, it could be Silverbolt, bc James Avery is voicing Silverbolt.
    Oooooooh the guessing......

    ReplyDelete
  128. Why it can't be Alpha Trion? It look it has a beard and structure look right? That is just my guess. If Micheal bay dose another I want Dinobots,Skyfire,Trailbreaker,Hound, Sunstreaker,Cliffjumper for Autobots if some of these are not in 3rd. Because the some unknown Transformes in this movie

    ReplyDelete
  129. Martinus, folks were talking about Sector 7 never mentioning the men on the moon. Sector 7 never mentioned the rover and it wasn't a major point of emphasis is all I was saying. but it's not really that serious.

    ReplyDelete
  130. to Anon @ 12/10/2010 7:56 AM...

    Did you not see RotF ??? In case you didn't there was rather an important character named Jetfire. He was the one who "spacebridge'd" Sam & co. to Egypt, told them about the Matrix and how to find it, then sacrificed his spark to donate his parts to revive Prime to defeat the Fallen. Upon doing so he ended his own life.

    My point ? Jetfire IS Skyfire, but because of trademarked character names Hasbro cannot use the name 'Skyfire' any longer. So you had what you wanted all along, just never knew it.

    Talk about ungrateful... !!

    ReplyDelete
  131. you all people are stupid you guys dont watch and pic things that are really good for a guess this is another decepticon ship take a look at the robots faces they have the decepticon look watch TF1 and TF2 concept art and you'll see it, now at the end the one you see is alpha trion and it looks like he's been capture, the only way to travel this long distance is open a space bridge and it seems that this one did that and crash on our moon while the other one the nemesis crash on saturns moon remenber the rumors it will be a flash back from the fallen witch tells us that he and the decepticons capture alpha trion cause maybe he was the only one who can bring to life more autobots.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Some people are getting way to complicated with their theories... Let's just all agree it's a good teaser trailer! Cant wait til next summer it's gonna be the best summer ever for movies PERIOD!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Very Nice!!! I wonder if Leo and his real effin deal internet flunkies will be in this??

    ReplyDelete
  134. Just my 2 cents.

    I don´t think the yellow transformer is Unicron, first Michael Bay have stated numerous times that he didn't liked the idea of Unicron (much like the Dinobots). Also the transformer doesn't look evil enough to be Unicron, compare it to the design of Megatron, The Fallen or many of the Decepticons, all of them are designed to have and evil look to them.

    The two main names mentioned here (Alpha Trion & Sentinel Prime) are reasonable candidates. Both characters stories have elements that can be related to what have happened in the previous two movies and that could require its presence. We know there is an important new character with the autobots (the fire truck), with Sentinel Prime rumored to be this truck. Also, I agree with Anon 8:30 PM in that he seems to be strapped.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Its (Alpha Trion or Vector Prime) both turn to a Cybertronian Jet.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Well, one of the first transformers. It cannot be. Seven Primes were much different than later generations. If it's true that only 7 of 13 were Primes, they were still created at same time, but not to have different appearance than Primes. Optimus was different, but only because he's like transformers from generationsafter the creation of 13.

    ReplyDelete
  137. The design of the robot inside the ship it's a Gundam ripoff. I don't remember such a ripoff design from Gundam series ever before on any Transformers version to date.

    ReplyDelete
  138. If he's been around since the moon landing then where was he in the first two movies? hmmm

    ReplyDelete
  139. My opinion (take note, I said opinion)

    This ship is the Arc. (Nemesis is on one of Saturn's moons)
    The transformer in the sand is Optimus Prime (in protoform)
    The yellow transformer is Alpha Trion, in the exact same sense as the comic books made him out to be. He is a prime, and the only one other than the Fallen.

    He was probably piloting the Arc (strapped in appearance) and it crashed (a la G1) into the moon (not from G1) setting everyone aboard into Stasis Lock (also G1). The bodies are all strewn around the ship because, well thats what happens when you crash. Your car his a wall and you aren't wearing a seat belt, you don't just go limp right in your seat. You splatter into the wall, thats just how it works. When the astronauts find there way onto the ship they probably stumble onto something that reboots one of them (big yellow guy) and he starts to re-activate the others there on the ship. something will probably happen where he has to give his spark to re-activate Optimus thus making Optimus the decendent of a Prime.

    There's my back story, as I see it now. I'm still trying to think of just how NASA comes to forget all of this and how Sector 7 has no information on it.

    Now that you've read that, go back and read the FIRST TWO WORDS OF THIS POST before you cut it down.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Disclaimer: I never really read the comic books, but I always thought of the first 13 as primes. I'm probably wrong on this, but too lazy to do the research, plus I need to get back to work.

    ReplyDelete
  141. That's a really good point of view, Rob. NASA probably didn't forget any of it, they probably just archived it for you know, governmental top secret purposes, hiding it from the public eye. Key in the scenes where Optimus Prime and the Autobots are en route to NASA and the Space Shuttle in Florida KSC. I'm curious as to how that'll be played out. Maybe they'll hitch a ride to the moon or something.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Not that it makes up for anything but they will probably use the explaination that they used in the second movie when new stuff happenes but wasnt at all mentioned in the movie before. Classified information haha. Agent Simmons never brings up stuff about classified info unless its asked about. Lame I know

    Other thing about teasers is you dont know if the words that you hear go with the scene (or are in time with the visuals) you are watching. Or if the lines are used at all but for the teaser.

    When I look at the robots they mostly look like drone robots to me. Even the one in the sand. The Alpha Trion looking one appears to be the only important robot in the treaser. Seems to have the the sholder pads (or may be wings), the V shape on forehead, beard, and resemblence to Optimus: looks like Alph Trion. May play it off to be his father (just an idea). Or could be random new bot. Don't think its the firetruck though.

  143. Am I the only one seeing deceptions on this crashed ship?

  144. The robot's faces are getting way too close to human faces. Let's keep them robotic, please. Otherwise, that's my only complaint of this trailer.

    ReplyDelete
  145. well thats how they were in g1 and probibly did that bc its interesting

    ReplyDelete
  146. how the fuck can all yall say thats unicron my god has the fanbase been loseing it? first off no thats not unicron he has the damn autobot look for gods sake and his eyes are blue and well that not unicron and that bot in the sand cant be prime caues well why is he dameged and that doent even look like him

    ReplyDelete
  147. You guys are funny.

    I remember way back in 2008-2009 when this glitzy silver car was being loaded into a red transport trailer. The reflection of the red caught on the silver made it look streaky, albeit the grainy celphone image wasn't a very good one. It certainly left the fanbase frothing at the mouth for a wild goose chase on what Autobot it was.

    Some dudes swore by hell and highwater it was Hot Rod just because it had the red reflection. Some dudes stammered it would be Mirage or Blurr. Some claimed that the Almighty Lord told them it was Wheeljack, Skids, or Smokescreen. Even some just yelled like little weeny boys and punched their fists on the tables with Jazz! Jazz! Jazz!

    It turned out to be Sideswipe. And he was pretty damn cool.

    There are some fans who claim the faces are way too human. I dunno about you, but faces with moving sharp edges and silvery bits and pieces there aren't exactly human-looking to me. Unless you're colorblind or something. Or maybe into Sorayama's robot gal art.

    And then there a few goofballs who claim the movie will suck because it doesn't have Megan Freakin' Fox. She's hot, she's pretty, OK, we GET IT. Hello? It's 2010, time to move on, man! Time to move on! Oh wait, she did wear skinny hot leggings once. I have a thing for that. Mmmmmmmm... and now Rosie is wearing these REALLY HOT skinny jeans. Now I dunno about the rest of you GUYS, but if you can't SEE that and get some kind of rock hard on, then SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU. Unless you're gay or a kid whose hormones haven't fully matured yet and that's OKAY, but you know what I mean, man!

    And Unicron? UNICRON??? A robot the size of a PLANET? How in the heck did that get in there? I'm thinking a lot of you guys haven't even SEEN the first two movies more than once.

    Anyway, it's Friday. Cheers! :)

  148. @Rob It's spelled the Ark.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Just a note, the robot in the trailer isn't just not finished CGI wise, it is also not the final model. As in the new model will look more like a BayFormer, and less human/g1. They didnt have time to get the new one up to a decent standard.

    They're just using this one for the time being because it looks good enough for a teaser and it resembles alpha trion, if they used a more exosceleton look like most of the other robots none of the fan boys would be able to get an idea of who it was supposed to be.

    ReplyDelete
  150. i have to point out one thing... NASA says, "you have 21 minutes" (or something like that) i know its just a teaser but it seems as though they explored for like 5-10 minutes. So maybe the robots did hitch a ride with NASA... and the first half of the movie will be a prequal (sorry if i spelled anything wrong)
    -don't jump on me for my opinion-

  152. Time is irrelevant in Hollywood. "21 minutes" can be a "3 hour tour" inside an alien spaceship. Audiences really don't care because it's all about getting the plot moving along and kids just wanna see the robots. Ask kids about time. They don't give a darn. Ask kids about money. They'll look at you funny like something's wrong with your nose. I think something's wrong with my nose all the time.

    NASA's like, "take the goddam pics and get the F outta there". I'm cool with that. As long as they don't pull an Alien Facehugger on us I think we're pretty safe. I think. You know, in space, no one can hear you scream.

    But I think I will hear pleasant screams if Rosie and Megan have a mud-wrestle.

    Or maybe that's just someone's GODDAM CELPHONE GOING OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE THEATER. I hate it when that happens.

    ReplyDelete
  153. whoever said they thought they saw decepticons i thought same thing...you are not alone. NO ONE thinks that yellow robot is unicron...that is plain stupid. what i saw and people are talking about is a tease! after you go through the yellow bots eye...through the silver metal changing...off to the left there appears a circle with teethlike features in the middle. it may very well be the eye outline fading out but it resembles unicron you cannot deny that...someone post that still please...and i still don't think he's in it

    ReplyDelete
  154. Transformers are getting more and more human-ish. I hate it.
    Alpha Trion or Unicron? My opinion, Alpha Trion. But possible that the Ark was crashlanded during a battle between 'bots and 'cons like G1; both (movie style) Unicron and Alpha Trion be possible.
    ! ! ! First mistake ! ! !
    When astonauts were getting into the Ark there was no objects on the background, then later in the scene taken from the same angle as moon rover was seen, Earth can be seen in spite of astonauts were on the dark side of the moon.

    ReplyDelete
  161. There no "another trailer" on December 17th.

    What you see here is THE trailer that will be provided in 3D form right before Tron Legacy 3D which premieres on December 17th. It most likely will be rendered a bit better but you can indeed see it in 3D.

    That's all we get until the SuperBowl in 2011 or something. Who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  162. @9:40 -

    If you go through, frame by frame, you can see dead autobots and decepticons throughout the spacecraft. That's why I said I see decepticons.

    @12:53 -
    They are not really on the dark side of the moon. In the teaser, you see NASA officials cutting the transmission feed to news agencies thus simulating that the astronauts are on the dark side of the moon.

    who is big enough to lock unicron up?
    why would unicron be small?
    why does unicron have autobot features?
    why are you fucking retarded?
    why does it have the most noticable features of Alpha Trion?
    why would they release the main villain of the movie in a teaser?

  173. Martinus Prime12/14/2010 9:01 AM

    Since nobody mentioned it, I will. They'll probably take a part of the ship back to earth, or they get a part of the ship working again, bc the turbines most definitly resembles the ship/jetprop earlier this summer with Sam and Carly on it!!

    ReplyDelete
  174. Has anyone said it might be Kup?

    ReplyDelete
  175. @Martinus Prime i was wondering the same thing about the turbines.

    As for the Bot in the ship, I'm not so sure it's Alpha Trion as Nelson more or less said 'the most popular choice is the wrong one' not 100% sure that's what he meant but worth considering.

    ReplyDelete
  176. so i just compared:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-news/attach/1/Transformers-3-DOTM-1643_1291856882.jpg

    with

    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_G96gxvrHqrE/TKAtluAMYQI/AAAAAAAAJ6U/u-BPcrI3kF4/s1600/TF3DetroitGunshipComingSoon.jpg

    they aren't the same exact bits as the engines shown on the ship in the trailer but the design is consistant with the 'teeth' coming out over the 'nozzels' so as Martinus said it's a bit off of it, with some more of it CGI'd

    ReplyDelete
  177. Martinus Prime12/14/2010 6:04 PM

    No, definitely no Kup, it's definitely Alpha Trion or Vector Prime, those 2 are bots that will definitely cause "fandom to faint", like Bay & co said!
    I don't think fandom will faint over Kup.
