Transformers Images Reveal Sentinel Prime, Plus New Details

Back when the first trailer dropped for Michael Bay's Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the final shot included a new, bearded transformer that nobody seemed to recognize. After guessing Unicron or Magnus, we finally settled on Alpha Trion, but that wasn't right either. Turns out that it's Sentinel Prime and today brings the first full shot of him.

Fansite TFW2005 has posted scans of the new issue of Empire that not only includes an image of Sentinel, but also the new Optimus and Major William Lennox leading his group of soldiers. The article also includes some extra details about the upcoming blockbuster sequel, but I've put them below the images just in case of spoilers.

Check out the images and tidbits below (as well as a comparison screenshot from the trailer)and be sure to head over to TFW2005 to see the images in high-res and see all of the new factoids.


Among the rest of the details, the site offers five "do's and don'ts" that Michael Bay followed for the third film, learning from the mistakes he made on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Check them out below:

Does and Don'ts for TF3:1. No sand2. No "dorky" humor ("we wanted to make the movie much more serious, more adult)3. When robots die, they're really going to die and we're gonna show that4. We're not bringing people back5. Give the robots more 'weight' in the story ("They were missed in movie two. We've given them a strong back-story and pathos")
