Proof Transformers 4 Isn't A Reboot: Leadfoot Is The Same As Dark of the Moon
When Transformers 4 was first announced it was said to be a reboot with all new robots and vehicle-modes for the Autobots and Decepticons.
However, Michael Bay has since stated that Transformers 4 is not a reboot, but set after Dark of the Moon.
Now we see evidence that the movie isn't a reboot in the form of the Autobot Leadfoot.
Instagram user Becker1241 posted the following image of Leadfoot from Transformers 4, where we see it's the same vehicle. Leadfoot was part of the "Wreckers" from DOTM and surived the onslaught of Sentinel Prime and Shockwave.
The user also posted a shot of the new Bumblebee in action, which is a 1967 Vintage Camaro SS.
Scrolling through some of the user comments, who appear to be near the shoot, also seems to suggest that the recent Transformers sports cars images are actually Decepticons, which would fit in with the reveal of the black Freightliner possibly being Motormaster with the Stunticons.
No plot details are known about the movie, but it's been said that an ancient Transformers enemy sets its sights on Earth as both the Autobots and Decepticons are off planet. It's also been said that men of power use the Transformers tech for their own plans.
The vague plot description is thought to possibly mean that Unicron and the Dinobots are too be involved.
Transformers 4 has a Summer 2014 release directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller and Kelsey Grammar.
