Click above for more shots of the mystery Transformers Corvette

The upcoming Transformers sequel, which is known as Revenge of the Fallen, is shaping up to be chock-full of new characters and, therefore, vehicles. The GM love fest continues with new cast members like the Chevy Beat and Trax siblings, a mystery Corvette and even the Chevy Volt. With all of these new additions, along with what appears to be the entire cast from the first edition, keeping up is proving a bit difficult. With that in mind, those of you who don't mind viewing a few spoilers before actually seeing the flick, check out the ongoing and recently updated character guide over at FiLM Grenade.

Still can't get enough Transformers action? Check out some conceptual art done by Tim Flattery. Though these particular drawings were made for the first film, the characters didn't make it into the movie. Some sources are claiming that we could see them appear in the upcoming sequel. Thanks for the tips, 04volk and 94 Taurus Owner!

      Those are some outlandish looking concept cars. Especially that little green one. I bet the US never sees that little green one, its too concepty to be real. Someone should call Bob Lutz and tell him that the little green one would best be suited for Europe but should not come to the US.

      This is gross product placement. Gross.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It as $700.76 million, but that's beside the point.

        a) You're looking at it wrong, they had a budget of $151 million and still needed a sponsorship.

        b)They didn't get all of the $700 million, the theatres got their cut too.

        c)The budget has nothing to do with the gross, if they spent $151 million and the movie bombed, GM's sponsorship would have cushioned the blow a bit.

        d)GM was chosen, because Michael Bay felt they have the most diverse lineup of cars.

        From the film maker's point of view, having the audience focus on GM instead than the movie is nightmare. I can't sit through this movies without thinking I paid for watching a 2 hour long commercial.

        Here's the thing, movies are expensive to make. So, if the studios can find an automaker, or any other company, to help with the bill the more power to them.

        And honestly, I don't know about you, but anytime there's a car in a movie I'm a little distracted by it. Even when they're from more than one manufacturer.

        Also, if you look at background cars in the first Transformers you will see non-GM cars.

        From the filmmaker's point of view having a automaker such as GM supplying all the awesome concept cars you can ask for is a dream

        @ Juan your probably one of the only people ive heard of who could only think of GM during the visual orgy that was transformers

        The first Transformers movie had a budget of $151 million dollars and had a gross revenue of $707.6 millions.
        That means the movie made more than four times and a half the money it cost to make.

        I don't believe they have to resort to tasteless sponsoring to make money on a hollywood blockbuster, buddy.

      The Corvette is going to be Hot Rod or Rodimus Prime.

      It even looks similar to hot rod from the cartoons.
