Official Images of Sentinel Prime, The Ark, and Toy Fair

In a run up to the beginning of the New York Toy Fair 2011 being held this weekend, Hasbro has released official images of three new Transformers: Dark of the Moon toys to Entertainment Weekly. The images prove officially what we all suspected. Sentinel Prime alt mode is the red fire truck, Megatron's new alt mode is worn down tanker truck and the crashed ship on the moon seen in the teaser trailer is The Ark. The Ark is not a Transformer but a kids playset while Sentinel is Leader class (not voyager as first thought) and Megs is voyager class. The pics also verify with the distinct bearded robot is the one discovered on the Ark by the Apollo 11 crew. Makes you wonder what other movie theories might be verified during the Toy Fair. Thanks to Udana for the link.

Speaking of, Hasbro's CEO Brian Goldner gave a presentation that involved Transformers. No movie details were revealed but he did say that the Dark of the Moon video game is going to be a prequel to the movie rather than a direct adaptation as was done for previous movie games. He also said on Monday, Michael Bay would be on hand to show more footage from the film. The slideshow presentation showed off the official logos of MechTech, Cyberverse, and Robot Heroes lines along with a look at the rendered Bumblebee. Thanks to KRandTFfan for the link.

  3. Sentinel Prime design is practically a carbon copy of some Gundam models. A Gundam model it resembles is this, the Aegis Gundam: http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN916410

  14. I remember when we had these old VT100 terminals back in the junior high school days of the mid 1980s. You'd dial up to a BBS and the only type option you'd get was CAPS.

    "HAI GAIZ HOW ABOUT THAT WEATHER OVER THERE IN LAKE MICHIGAN."

    So that's how it was for a while over "blistering" 300 baud modems. You'd be lucky if the flaming hot heatsinks didn't fry the whole unit.

    Fast forward to today's Internet with complex abbreviations, syntax, and all sorts of Internet jargon-slang hooplah... and it still amazes me that we have a user here who comes straight from those crusty 'ol 300 baud modem days.

    Ah youth.

  15. I thought The Fallen said "only a Prime can defeat me, and only one remains."Then Megs said "Optimus, he protects the boy." So whats goin on? Bay already forget the script in Revenge? Now suddenly theirs Sentinal Prime. I guess I'll deal with it, I think he's cool, but I was hoping for Ultra Magnus, but at least make him Alfa Trion.

    ReplyDelete
  16. In terms of the Ark, the EW article says that, "In the cartoon, it served as the Autobot headquarters, but in Dark of the Moon that smashed hulk that serves as Sentinel Prime’s living tomb is the updated version of The Ark."

    They say "living tomb." That could be interpreted to mean the Ark itself is alive and possibly a transformer, or it could just mean that Sentinel Prime is still alive in the ship.

    Here's hoping it means the earlier of the two and that the Ark is good old Omega Supreme!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I agree. I was hoping that the fire truck was Ultra Magnus and the bot on the ship was Alpha Trion.

    Really, you're already bitching about the character because YOU wanted someone else to appear... oh, poor soul that can accept what the world gives to you, and not only that but then you want them to "at least make him Alfa Trion" because it's too difficult for you.

    And don't get me started with the Prime thing, that discrepancy has been discussed in many forums with a very simple answer that you could come up with by yourself if you use your brain just a little bit, nothing much I won't harm you, I promise.

  19. can someone explain to me why ROTF is hated so much. I've seen plenty bad movies and ROTF to me was fairly good....not great but it was entertaining to me. (answers like "bay sucks" doesnt work)

    ReplyDelete
  20. people don't mean its a really bad movie, they just mean it was the bad movie of the series

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sentinel Prime looks great and I'm liking Megatron more and more.
    From the EW article..."Bay said Megatron would start the movie...hiding in the jungles of Africa"...interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sentinel prime looks so good!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think a lot of people are taking the ROTF script far too seriously. Remember, it was hashed out during a writer's strike. It was rushed and just plain stupid on so many levels. Bay admits that because that's the responsible thing for a director to do. You have to admire that he takes the blame for the WRITERS for ROTF. I'm sorry some of you don't see it that way, but that's the truth.

    I repeat, ROTF was written when the WRITERS WERE ON STRIKE = LAME STORY, don't even bother taking it seriously.

    Now that writers are not on strike and the script is (thankfully) not helmed by Orci and the other dude, I'm actually kind of excited to see what we'll have this time around.

  24. Im going to laugh if Sentinel turns out to be Magnus as they switched identities like in Animated lol

  26. I think a masterpiece from Takaro of Sentinel Prime and Megatron would be awesome

  27. How much do you want to bet that at the end, Sentinel Prime will die sacrificing himself for something...

    ReplyDelete
  28. 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
  29. That oughta shut those damned fanboys screaming and chanting Unicron and thinking that was him in the trailer. Dumbasses...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I knew it was Sentinel all the time. I laugh at those stupid people who thought the firetruck was Ultra Magnus. Maybe that gold bot is Alpha Trion? Maybe it's Unicron? Maybe it's Primus or could it be Optimus Prime himself?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I saw this over at Tron-Sector and was about to post it here-that pic of Sentinel Prime. As far as the guy complaining that this revelation "disrupts" the whole, "Last Prime" thing, it doesn't. Here's one real blatant clue: see the SILVER (hint, hint) facial hair on Sentinel Prime's face???

    As far as ROTF is concerned Lionboogy, I have to disagree with you: Bay didn't apologize until long after the shit hit the fan, basically recently, when he had those reporters from collider.com visit him in an edit suite. I recall Bay not even giving a damn about the complaints in interviews when ROTF was out, saying, "Well we wanted to put in something funny for the kids." I also recall Orci & Kurtzman saying that Bay dictated alot of what was written, and that they voluntarily decided to not return for TF3, but that Ehren Kreuger, (whom they also stated was partly the reason why ROTF sucked), also created much of the content that pissed people off. Yes, there was a writer's strike, but that in itself still doesn't excuse the crappy tired-ass B.S. that polluted (to some extent) ROTF. To be brutally honest, while DOTM has been stated to be a better story, I'm extremely skeptical and may even wait to see it.

    I agree with the earlier post about the the "Last Prime" loophole, and I'm not saying this because I was hoping it was some other Transformer! We all know that their was problems with the writing in ROTF and I'm sure we all don't want that to roll into DOTM, so I would love to hear how you are so sure this "Last Prime" problem will not be a problem in DOTM in other words.....ENLIGHTEN ME!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Anonymous 2/12/2011 2:21 AM: Yeah, I think you're right, my bad. haha

    Though god, I really wish ROTF was done better in terms of story. It really killed it for me but I still loved the movie anyway.

    In other words... "hmpf... i still say it's UM, because i want so! And you guys are stupid for no believing me!"

    Lionboggy, I dunno bout you but since now we know it's the Ark on the moon I'm expecting alot of Autobots to show up this time.

    ReplyDelete
  36. If sentinel is 'non-functional' on the ark then this supports what the Fallen says about last living Prime, etc... But if he was discovered in 196-? this was long before RotF.

    Without stating the obvious TF3 does seem and sound a lot darker... pardon the pun. The music on the trailer is similar to battle: LA but I think they both sound quite... 'fear-instilling'.

  37. the post very good. thanks

    Do you really need to be such a Jerk. Before you call anyone else stupid, you do know the gold bot is also Sentinel Prime, the firetruck and the gold bot are the same character, whose stupid now. I laugh at your stupidity. I'm guessing when the Firetruck was discovered, you must've thought it was Inferno or Ultra Magnus, no way in heck you knew from there that it was Sentinel. Stop acting like you're a genius and make fun of others for thinkiing the Firetruck was a popular character(Magnus) when you proved how dumb you are by not knowing the Firetruck & the Gold Bot are the same.

    Sad to see that it is not Magnus =(

    ReplyDelete
  39. LISTEN UP, INSIDE INFO!!!!!!!!!In regards to the Fallen saying only one Prime remains! at the time only one did!!!! Sentinel Prime is actually non functional at the time but is revived in this movie!!!! remember the guy who creates technology that can make transformers, ie The Wreckers!!!!! he uses it to revive Sentinel!!!!!! The trailer showing him come to life in the Ark is just purely for the trailer!!!!

  40. This is for lionboogy!!!!! This is a blog about Sentinel Prime!, not about whos typing CAPS! Computer geek!!!!!

  41. Anonymous 7:17 Reread my post again you fucktard. Sad to see that it is not Magnus =( Who cares about if he's in the movie or not? Nobody gives a fuck about HIM!

  42. Double post Anonymous 7:17 you dont know what sarcasm is. Your taking it too seriously. Felling offended?

  43. "Sad to see that it is not Magnus =( Who cares about if he's in the movie or not? Nobody gives a fuck about HIM!"

    You are right, nobody cares about Magnus. :) We all know he wouldn't be able to deal with anything anyway, that's why we got Sentinel. :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Maybe Sentinel was still alive and none of the Autobots knew yet, making the Autobots believe Optimus was the only Prime left. Or maybe the Allspark fragment is used to bring him back to life? Maybe the Allspark has re-constructed itself by this point. So I'm not against bringing another Prime into the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  45. "Maybe Sentinel was still alive and none of the Autobots knew yet, making the Autobots believe Optimus was the only Prime left."

    That... Doesn't really change anything. Bottom line, nobody knew about him, no matter if he's alive, or not.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can see it falling on Sentinel and Optimus fighting side by side against Shockwave. That's the ending right there with a massive destruction streak along the way leaving Chicago a heaping pile of slag.

    ReplyDelete
  47. From reading the ROTF novel, before seeing the film. The main issue was tossing out the "Stasis lock" concept from the film. I guess under the time crunch we didn't get the scene with Ratchet explaining that to sam after the forest fight. The film played it off as Optimus being dead. The writers put stasis lock into the script. The writers are not the issue on that. The ROTF film already messed up the continuity right there, that tiny change made a large gap. The added silly humor did very little if anything at all to fill that void.

    This time around they said, "Dead means dead".

    ReplyDelete
  48. Guys, your comments to each other would be far more convincing and slightly less juvenile if you spelled the words correctly. Spelling and grammar check, just putting it out there.

    And everyone hoped it was Ultra Magnus!

    ReplyDelete
  49. ok lets get this clear. this is not G1 or the comics. soooo there was no matrix to pass on to a new leader. the matrix was a power source and was already used and seemingly destroyed in ROTF. also prime is a title of leadership in most TF continuities. doesnt mean there has to be only one. also maybe the fallen knew the ark crashed into the moon and he assumed that sentinel was dead, or maybe he simply is an ass and made an assumption, and u know what happens when u assume.....lastly ORCI and KURTZMAN are the best PR guys when it comes to their own careers...if u didnt like ROTF (i loved it) blame orci and kurtzman..bay did not force them to write, they wrote it, orci even took personal credit for devastators balls. so dont even think theyre innocent. writers dont write at the iron fist of any director.....and one last comment about "stasis-lock"....the reason most likely it was removed from the movie was the general movie going audience wouldnt know or understand what that was...death was easiest. makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  50. What does Stasis Lock mean? :) Can someone explain? :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. NO orci said they were responsible for some of the bad jokes, but I know for a fact it was Michael Bays idea about devastators balls

    oh yeah and

    ALL PRIMES MUST HAVE WINDOW BOOBS!

    ReplyDelete
  52. ROTF messed up big time. 3 things that shouldn't have happened

    1. Optimus dying and living again(lame)
    2. Devastator was pure FAIL.
    3. How many thousand Constructicons joined the Decepticons?
    4. Fallen was depicted as weak.
    5. Optimus became Super and could fly.(super lame)
    6. US military seen as saviour and laser from ship could knock out an alien being.(lame)
    7. I have no idea what the Twins functions as?
    8. Same as the 3 chick bike bots on wheels. (lame)
    9. Autobots depicted as weak, needing human army to fight Decepticons.
    10. Might as well call it Men vs Robots.

    ReplyDelete
  53. does this mean no ultra magnus? :(

    ReplyDelete
  54. One thing that is getting kind of irritating to me is people still bagging on ROTF. The movie is over and done. It had flaws but wasn't horrible (my opinion) this is a different movie altogether. How about we talk about DOTM and not ROTF. After all this thread is about DOTM

    I am curious as to what the role of Sentinel Prime is in this one. The figure is a definite own for me! I like The Ark as well. Not really too big of a fan of Megs though.

  55. "What does Stasis Lock mean? :) Can someone explain? :)"

    It's something like a clinical death. :P

    SENTINEL PRIME AND THE ARK ARE AWESOME!!! MEGS TOO BTW!
    Now, only the Ferrari and Mercedes Benz remain to be unveiled! Oh yeah, also the Datsun Bumbkebee toys have to come our way.

    @anon 6:17:
    Stasis lock means: stand-by mode, waiting to be re-activated.

    @Rebecca:
    Problem with counting do we? LOL 3 things???
    You don't understand Transformers at all! Optimus did not became super, Jetfire gave is parts to OP, bc he wouldn't made it afterall, to make him stronger to take on Megs and The Fallen, combining with Jetfire and able to fly is just plain awesome!
    Autobots are NOT depicted as weak, needing humans, they only joined forces.

  59. yo guys, new toy pics, leader ironhide and even de red wrecker , go to tfw2005 for the tf toy fair section

    cheers

    ReplyDelete
  60. Thing I think is funny, and i know its just hopeful fans of G1, that people came up with all these people who the wreckers are going to be without looking up the wreckers in TF history to get a glimse at who the real possibilities are. Why do i say this? Because at least two of the NASCAR vehicles are named after main wrecker characters. Green NASCAR is Roadbuster and another is Topspin according to info released from the toy fair. So don't hope for anything else but bot who were wreckers in the past G1 fans.

    ADMIN- I found the link on Sibertron.com. Whole bunch of info on new toys like the poster above said. Even Triple changer Bee

  63. Autobots and Decepticons are depicted as weak as fuck,

    i mean decepticons were getting owned by assault riles in rotf, soooo retarded,
    i mean where is the threat? maybe they could take over france where no civilains have guns, but it just makes them seam weak as fuck

    also they made bumblebee way too fucking strong, ratchet and ironhide have to share kills with other people or takedowns, but bumblebee has kicked so many decepticons ass compared to them its kind of retarded,

    ReplyDelete
  64. I agree with the post above. Alien robots are supposed to own human's military might. Tis the Autobots who should have challenged them head on.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have a feeling that the Ferrari is going to be sunstreaker and nod hot rod. Call it a hunch

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hey guys... you hear it here first. Both Sentinel and Magnus are in this movie and Sentinel betrays the Autobots ;)
