Bay Confirms Sentinel Prime

In an interview with MTV, Michael Bay has finally confirmed that Sentinel Prime is in the movie but still has not confirmed if it is the red Rosenbaurer Panther airline fire truck as rumored. Bay revealed this information during an interview with MTV at the premiere of "I Am Number Four" that he executive producer of. He continued to re-iterate his promise that this film will be much better then Revenge of the Fallen and that this was his final Transformers film. Thanks to Mcat for the link. Update: Hasbro's released official images that verify that the fire truck is the alt mode of Sentinel Prime.

"The second one, we had a tough go," Bay told us. "It was a very, very tough thing to make a movie under those circumstances. It affected a lot of Hollywood at that time."

This time around, Bay said, "We worked extra hard" and struck upon "a better story." "It's epic and it happens in a city," he added. "It's more accessible because you recognize stuff — it's not in a desert. It's kind of like 'Black Hawk Down' with our small group of heroes in a city."

On the carpet, Bay also briefly touched on two new alien bots set to debut in "Dark of the Moon." "Sentinel Prime is great. He's great," he said. "I can't tell you anything else, other than he's great."

And about the villain Shockwave, Bay say, "He's bad," adding that compared to Megatron, "He's got a much bigger gun [and is] a little bit more vicious."

Though Bay is certain he's got a winner on his hands, the director maintained that "Dark of the Moon" will be his final "Transformers" film. "It does have an end, yes," he said. "Because I am finished doing this."

  4. I would like to hear from Bay's mouth why he doesn't want to do any more Transformers movies...especially if this 3rd movies makes even a bigger killing than ROTF

  5. I agree with Anonymouse 10:02 in that Bay did not confirm anymore than Sentinael Prime is in the movie. He could be the bot in the teaser trailer which i agree looks like a flyer of some sort. And if i go off color schemes, which doesnt matter too much because hes in his cybertronian mode on the ark, id say it doesnt match the fire truck. Or the bot on the ship isnt Sentinal but Alpha Trio or someone else and the fire truck is Sentinal. So we still don't have the fire truck confirmed. Im hoping for Ultra Magnus as well but with Bay who knows... it could be Cliffjumper haha.

  6. Ultra Magnus would be perfect for the fire truck..he was bigger than Prime in the cartoon anyway..it has to be him..

  7. Like most people I'm disappointed to hear the fire truck isn't Ultra Magnus. Other than Grimlock, he's probably the most recognizable character not included in these films.

    It's a shame, it makes more sense for Ultra Magnus to be in the movie. Maybe he is and it just hasn't been leaked yet.

  8. I altered the Post text some as upon reflection I have to agree that Bay only confirmed the character, not the alt mode. I jumped the gun on putting the two together.

  9. he confirms sentinel prime. but that doesn't mean that the fire truck is sentinel. far we know he could be just a full CGI character like shockwave.

    we can just wait

  10. I'm not trying to star ant arguments, but
    is it a possibilty that the robot from the teaser trailer is sentinel prime, and since MB didn't give out any info besides hes in the movie, and (as far as we know) most/all the other primes are dead
    so, he could appear as a holographic image or something, telling a message

  11. Michael Bay confirmed it's last Transformers?
    and Shia LaBeouf said months ago Transformers it's over for him too.

    I ask you guy please answer me:
    -Do you think It will not have a Transformers 4?????

  12. Some of you did not hear a word the man said. He said Sentinel Prime was really cool. He never said Sentinel Prime was the fire truck. One guy (a security guard said it was) and everyone jumped on the band wagon lol. The fire truck is not Sentinel.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The fire truck could be Ratchet's father, for all we know! xD

  14. If its over for bay and shia...then if at all possible there is a reboot of some sort then they would have to introduce daniel to keep it going. It wouldnt be the same w/o shia...

    ReplyDelete
  15. if this is the last movie lets hope that shia and bay got out with a big bang

  16. Stop yelling about it not being confirmed as the the fire truck. The site manager fixed the problem way before you put your comment up so relax. If you posted it before he fixed it sure but after... come on whats the point. And people should read all comments on the given topic before they comment or they sound stupid or redundant.

  19. That is an awesome looking too for Sentinel Prime, think I'll get that one, nice to see what he looks like in robot form!

    ReplyDelete
  20. also, so it looks like that yellow bot we see is indeed sentinel prime and his yellow color is probably that of his cybertronian form and when he gets to earth, changes to the firetruck....works for me.

  27. Figure looks pretty good compared to other TF3 toys so far. Was disappointed at first but it could work. So now we have at least three of the same looking truck robot forms OP, Megs, and now SP. I wonder what stereotype theyll make him sound like. I love how they'll throw all these new characters in and probably barely develope theyre characters. I hope they do but its soooo hard to not think they are going to screw it up. Should be super fun to watch though.

  28. I wouldn't be so hard on the blog owner here either.

    He singlehandedly keeps track of different fandoms in 4 different blogs. And I'm pretty sure he has a day job to mind. So give him some slack.

  29. Ultra magnus would have been better

    ReplyDelete
  30. Cool!!!!!!!!! Sentinel Prime! oh man! I was so look forward to 4th movie! I want

  31. where the hell is soundwave? third movie already

    ReplyDelete
  32. ugh man does this mean they made Megatron a f'n p*ssy again? I swear to God they're making him weaker with each film. He was a bad-ass in the 1st one.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I WANT ULTRA MAGNUS..HE'S THE AUTOBOT COMMANDER, SO WHY NOT PUT HIM IN THE MOVIE?!..DAMNNNNN...ULTRA MAGNUS IS ONE OF MY REASONS WHY I'M SOOO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE..

    ReplyDelete
  34. First Bay wouldn't put the Dinobots in the movie now he is including Sentinel Prime. WTF Bay. Sentinel Prime was a non-entity in the cartoon and original transformers the movie. What was wrong with Hot Rod and Ultra Magnus. Why do I feel this is going to be a giant POS. I mean Sentinel IS DEAD he passed the matrix on why now bring him back...

    ReplyDelete
  35. sentinel prime looks just like Alpha Trion ? ...looks great just the same...but a lil confused. Got high hopes for the movie however :D !!! Time will tell I guess !

    ReplyDelete
  36. Alpha Trion was the father figure to Optimus not Sentinal...What is Bay doing??? nerp!

    It is not Ratchet's father it is
    Optimus prime father. I think?



    But Shia LaBeouf said this the best one.
