Fire Truck Is Ultra Magnus? (Updated)

An image posted on the Michael Bay Forums has added more confusion to the issue of what Transformer the Rosenbauer Panther airline fire truck seen in Chicago is. Set rumors and a toy listing indicated the character is Sentinel Prime but the image of a redacted call sheet now adds Ultra Magnus as a convincing candidate. It could even be one or both of these characters are pure CGI creations much like most of the Decepticons. As always, only time will tell. Thanks to Sam for the link.

Update: From Max in the comments, another call sheet image that once again references Ultra Magnus where it says "VFX:" near the bottom.

  1. Could be pure CGI...like seeing that tractor trailer painted baby blue in the pics posted last year. But who knows :S it would be sweet to have magnus in it.

  2. I don't really care how Ultra Magnus or Sentinel Prime are put into the movie. Just as long as they're in it, I'll be happy.

    Heck, let's just put every damn Transformers from the past 25 years in he movie. Plot? Characteristic? Logic? Who needs that.

  4. Here is the thing guys... I cant say who I am but I can say this... We have got Sentinel Prime's name on the toy listing as a Leader Class but now where does it say that Leader Class is a fire truck. Ultra Magnus is in the movie as well and from history, you all know Magnus is a front line fighter and would probably be put to better use in the movie than Sentinel Prime so with that said... who do you think would have the better chance of being the fire truck? We have Wreckers as well and well... Magnus did lead them did he not?

    Sentinel Prime ofcourse.

    "I cant say who I am but I can say this... "

    Why are you so mysterious? It's not like you're giving as any facts or anything...

  6. The facts are right there and if some can not see them, you are not looking hard enough. Just because the rumor out there is that Sentinel Prime is the fire truck does not show in fact that he is. Now I understand this does not prove in any way that Ultra Magnus is the fire truck but UM is a better fit. SP in this movie is a flyer, so why would he scan a fire truck?

    Ohhhh, so "I THINK it should be that way" is a better fact then a rumor...

    Where does it say so? And he could, oh i don't know... Be a triplechanger like megatron i RotF?

  10. Megatron was not a true triple changer in ROTF. Yes he had a tank mode and he could also fly but both his tank and flying mode were one in the same. Its not like he was a Earth MI-Abrams tank and then changed into a f-22 to fly... that would be a true tipple changer. And that is something we will never see in a Bay movie. So as Sentinel Prime goes... you can clearly see in the trailer that he has wings, so he either stays in his true flyer form or takes a Earth flyer form.

  11. Being mysterious super dooper secret agent is not gonna fly around here. We're gonna know all the facts in 6 months anyway. But hey, have fun with the wild speculations. hehe

  12. Toy Fair is Mid Feb, the answer could well be revealed there.

  13. I believe the SP on the toy list was meant to get somebody caught leaking info as now they know who has been leaking what

  14. I always thought it would be Ultra Magnus for some reason. In the last movie, they said the last remaining prime was Optimus, outside of the Fallen. Now the writes could say forget all that and re-write it, but who knows.
