We haven't really heard a peep about the Corvette Centennial Concept since late last year, but that'll be changing in short order as hype about Revenge of the Fallen, the upcoming sequel to the wildly successful live-action Transformers movie, gets closer to its release on June 26th. We're expecting to see a real car from General Motors to go along with the movie roll, but it's not something that you'll be able to buy. This machine is meant as nothing more than a tribute to the Corvette, and it coincides nicely with GM's 100th anniversary.
The most current set of rumors suggest that the Centennial 'Vette will take the form of Transformers character Sideswipe, though there's no official word on that point quite yet. Regardless, the robot mode has been revealed via a new Transformers toy leak. Pay close attention (click on the image to enlarge) to the robot's feet -- he's a skater, and that should make for some interesting scenes in the movie. Just a few more months to go. Thanks for the tip, everyone!

      The latest transformer will be a skater? Further reinforces the opinion that the Centennial Corvette Concept was lame.

      Lots of the Transformers from the first movie had their wheels in the ankles, but only one of them actually did any kind of "skating". Secondly, this is the toy, not the render from the movie, which will end up having many of the small details like that very different.

      heh Torrent, we all know you love GM. But the last time skaters were cool, you could buy a Camaro new.

      Like Grant said, this is a picture of how it will look in toy robot mode. In the movie they transform to the point where i you can't even recognize what car it could have been.

      Looks a bit like the Ferrari 599

      Hey, skaters are cool. The Centennial concept was slick, but a lil odd. Looks 10X better in Transformer mode.
