click above image to watch new Transformers TV spot

UPDATE 4/14: The video police continue to pull the spot from public video sites. It's gone from Both YouTube and Veoh. We have a list of sites that are hosting it locally posted after the jump.

Paramount and DreamWorks are never gonna keep a lid on this stuff. An as-yet-unreleased Transformers TV spot started making the web rounds today, and we've got links to it posted after the jump for your enjoyment.. The big deal here is that it's the first one to feature Optimus Prime talking, and it shows him introduce himself to Shia LaBeouf with his face shield down. It's awesome. Try not to wet yourselves. Fourth of July weekend can't get here soon enough.

So, what are you waiting for? Follow the jump and watch it already!

      I read they were going with the mask instead of the lips 'cause they never really looked right. I think they look weird, plus that really doesn't sound like Peter Cullen's voice. Or maybe there's just a strong audio effect on it?

      I'll bet that they "leaked" this to test the waters...

      Optimus Prime Lips (sounds like a good poultry brand name!)

      No! Take the lips away, please!!

      This is hurting my feelings. First they f-- up the cars by replacing them with all American models (Jazz should'uve been a Porsche and Bumble Bee should've been a souped-up Bug). And now Prime has bad looking and poorly animated lips??? Who's the producer of this film. We need to pay him a "visit."

      One of the commenters on the YouTube thread ...

      ...says that this spot is showing test footage, and that as far as he knows, the decision was later made to keep the faceplate on the whole time. Take it for what it's worth. Cool regardless, IMO.

      the voice actor sounds like the guy who did the demon in warcraft 3 in the orc campaign where Grom Hellscream dies.

      Optimus, sweet. Lips? he's a freakin machine.

      Man I still remember when he died in the movie as kid, cant wait. Still think they made them look weird, would have preferred a more cartoon style depiction.

      Too bad Porsche/VW didn't want it's cars in the movie, so there ya go.
