Michael Bay Introduces Squeeks (Updated)

Using their various social media accounts, Michael Bay teased the arrival of a new Transformers character. It first started on Michael Bay's twitter account when he asked "Is Squeaks camera-ready?" to which the Transformers twitter account replied with "just a few more touch-ups" along with a video of them spraying oil on a hint of blue. This led up to the full reveal via Bay's Instagram in a picture with him, Isabela Moner. It looks like the alt mode will be a rusted Vespa scooter. There are two spellings of the name but clearly the Instagram picture is designed to be spread via the various news sites so the official spelling is probably "Squeeks". If the name rings a bell it is probably because of the rumor last week about some of the characters and story for the movie. Update: Added another pic of Squeeks from MB.com.

Update: Thanks to Jeffrey Marshall of Pixel Rally for the new website banner that incorporates Transformers: The Last Knight look that replaces the one he created for TF4. Be sure to check out his site.

  3. I'n not totally up on my Transformer lore but I'm willing to bet this is one of MB's own Transformers like Skids & Mudflap.......there are alot of real Transformers to have in the movies why does he keep making up his own to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Probably for the kiddies is my guess. I agree though there's a whole lot of transformers he could use. If I'm honest though,given the opportunity I would probably make my own as well...although it wouldn't be some sort of retardo bot

    2. Skids was a G1 character but as for Mudflap he was introduced in transformers:cybertron..

    3. Other than the G1 Skids and Mudflap weren't retarded like in the movies....don't get me wrong. I liked Skids and Mudflap but it wasn't really Skids and Mudflap if that makes any sense

    4. Um, the G1 Skids and Mudflap comparison doesn't make sense either. Other than being yellow, Bumblebee doesn't act anything like this G1 counterpart. Don't get me wrong, I like Movie Bee, but if I wanted G1 Bumblebee I would watch the cartoon.

  4. Kinda reminds of Fixit from RID 2015.

    1. That's what I thought when I saw him or it.. he definitely looks like those Fixit bots, which I think Hasbro had something to do with including this new character into the film.

    2. I'm sure Hasbro has a lot of pull on what characters are in the film. They have toys to sell
