Optimus Prime Gets New Look and BumbleBee Goes Old School In ‘Transformers 4’ Images

Recently, images of Autobot disguises, a Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse and a Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray, were teased. But as to what Autobot would take the respective forms remains to be seen, although Sideswipe did disguise himself as the Stingray in both Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen and Transformers: Dark Of the Moon, whether or not that will carry over into Transformers 4 remains to be seen. So whilst the two vehicles go without robotic forms, two new images of familiar Autobots have been released.
Optimus Prime is getting a whole new body for Transformers 4, but is pretty much keeping the same color scheme that he has had from the last three Transformers films. However it’s Bumblebee who is getting a body by getting an old school makeover. Unfortunately it won’t be old school like VW Bug. Hit the jump to check out the new car bodies for Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
I’m interested to see why director Michael Bay decided to change Bee’s look from the more modern Camaro to a modified 1967 Camaro. We’ll probably hear of some sort of reasoning behind this decision as the film gets deeper into production.
But as for Optimus Prime’s new look. Reports are that the semi-truck is completely upgraded from the previous trucks that were used in the last three transformers films and that the trucks that are being used for Transformers 4 are customized.
All photos were taken on Highway 163 in Monument Valley near the border of Arizona and Utah.
So why do you think Bay changed the looks of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee? Do you think their new bodies will have to do anything with the plot of the film?
Transformers 4 stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer and Sophia Miles, and is scheduled for a June 27, 2014 release.
