If leaked documentation, which you should avoid if you don't want to read any plot spoilers, regarding the upcoming Transformers sequel is accurate, it appears that Mr. Bay may be bringing a motorcycle-based female robot to the big screen. We've heard that the character known as Arcee was considered for the initial film but was discarded so as not to confuse the audience with multiple gendered robots. If the rendering seen above is any indication, though, we'd imagine that Arcee's pinky-purple coloring would get that point across right away. There are two female riders listed on a leaked Call Sheet for the upcoming movie, and it appears that they are to be riding the oddly-colored Buell in the film.

Also revealed in the leak is information that leads us to believe that a certain Decepticon may make an appearance as an SR-71, along with what could either be the shapely Audi R8 or the mystery car we showed you yesterday. If the German supercar did show up, it would end the all-GM lovefest and be rather interesting to see morph on-screen, as well. Consider our interest piqued, as if we already weren't.

      Dear lord...all this talk about robo dongs and vagis...is making me miss that CTS-V story. I need a smoke now.
      FTR: I could care less about male/female characters. It's a movie based on a cartoon people. Not real life. At least not yet.
        • 6 Years Ago
        yeah, saw that one..."Transporners; more than meats the brown eye".... I hear Ron Jeremy will be in the sequel as a Gross-a-bot that's finally destroyed.

      THAT'S RIGHT.

      In the grand tradition of sexism in video games and media, even a female ROBOT, must have breasts, hips and a color scheme that's pink or purple.

      Someone should explain to the designers that women only have hips because their legs need to spread to give birth to biological babies.

      Someone should explain that women only have breasts to produce milk for babies.

      Someone should explain that women are only associated with pink and purple due to socialization.


      And why does it have a white arrow pointing "down there"? Surely this thing has no vag...
        • 6 Years Ago
        1) I dont think that is a white arrow so much as an empty space and I dont think its an actual arrow.

        2) Not for nothing but I dont think the robots are sexual in any manner. However, if you are going to appeal to the female market on this planet through identification, you need to give them hips and breasts.

        and yes it is in an lithe form considered 'attractive' if it were skinned. but you will notice none of the 'male' bots have a pot belly or glasses either.

        get over yourself.

        Buzz Kill Alert - If it does not look fem how are we supposed to know its a female robot. Like it or not I am sure the marketing people have found that pink and purple femine toys sell better to the majority of girls than a black butch robot would. Ok so it does not make sense for a robot to have boobs. You stop suspending reality at this point - the boobs? What about the fact that it is a robot from outspace that turns into a motorcycle 1/5 the size of the robot form? All that is ok?

        You were hoping for a Robo-Pat?

        maybe it has robot babies that need robot milk.

        DIDNT THINK OF THAT DID YOU!

      Lol id laugh if they made one based on the prious

      I'm surprised at the number of people that are apparently absolutely apoplectic over the concept of an anthropomorphized robot. Do y'all flip out over Disney's Robin Hood, too?

      Ha, a GM finally found a universe where their product can crush an Audi product (assuming the Audi is a deceptacon)..

      The mustang character was one of my favs, "to punish and enslave"..

      My girlfriend found the bumblebee toy interesting enough to play with, maybe they aren't too far off with a fembot. But, girls that actualy take interest in these type of toys may not necessarily want them to be girlie.. I'm not a marketing guy though..

      I have been thinking about selling my 04 firebolt. Now I think I'll wait until the movie comes out , paint it, then sell it so I can buy a V-Rod.
      • 6 Years Ago
      They should of use the Buell 1125R.

      I hate the Transformers movies.

      Horrible story line.

      When the transform they don't even look like the car/vehicle they are.

      Just stupid CGI!
        • 6 Years Ago
        The CG work they put into it was enough to make me want to watch the second one, personally.

        And that sense of pride you feel when you see all those GM vehicles and people being all like 'ooooooooooh sh*t'.

        It's the only movie I actually watched twice, first normally, then in IMAX.

        IMAX f'ing blew me away, haha.

        Can't say it has the best script or scenario, actually I had little faith in it in the begining, but seriously, just the way it was presented was enough to make me want MOAR.

      The pic of Arcee that Autoblog is using is actually a fan generate photoshop of this image: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/78/Arcee-movierobot.jpg

      Anyway the bike didn't make the first movie because it was to many Robo characters. In this movie they focus more on the Robots (thankfully); so we see more robo fights.

      The female rider for her looks hawt!

      Can't believe I'm the first to point this out: Arcee will be easy to spot in the parking lot. It'll be the only Firebolt with the brake rotor, headers and final drive on the left...

      How the hell can a freaking robot be female? Or male for that matter? Do they reproduce sexually? I didn't see a robo dong on optimus prime or anything, so what's with the robo boobs?
        • 6 Years Ago
        what's the deal with a robot from outspace turning into a car?
        • 6 Years Ago
        "I didn't see a robo dong on optimus prime or anything, so what's with the robo boobs?"

        What? Its called a human-like or humanoid figure. Do you look for penises on people when you see them out in public to distinguish gender? Boobs are an integral part of a female robot's physique just like big muscles are part of a male robot's physique. Maybe you want all the transformers to look like WALL-E?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Reminder: Bay said he'd be 'leaking' a bunch of bullsh*t.

      And that sounds a lot like it. There's no way Audi's making an appearance in a GM-only movie (and whatever's not GM is either debadged or considered evil).
        • 6 Years Ago
        Hey, didn't Bumblebee pop his 'cap' and use his robo-dong to 'urinate' on somebody in the first movie?
