Jolt Out, G2 Pyro-esque Firetruck Rolls In

With all the new characters coming to light in the form of vehicles seen on set and cardboard cutouts of heads on sticks, some of you have been wondering about the fate of existing characters who have not been seen on set yet.

Case in point, the Chevy Volt character Jolt. Added to Revenge of the Fallen late in the day he got very little to do in that movie, but with him in on the ground floor he could get some better screentime in the third movie, right?

You’d think a character like that would get more screen time for the third installment wouldn’t you? But guess what?

Jolt won’t be appearing in Transformers 3, AT ALL! Nelson dropped by our 2005 Boards to answer the question many of you are asking.

“No Jolt.” So sorry Jolt, it looks like your 15 seconds of fame were driving along that one stretch of road and helping Optimus Prime combine with the body of the recently deceased Jetfire.

Oh well, I guess you have to make room for new characters so you can produce new toys, right? One of the new characters rolling around Chicago, is a firetruck and it is a very flash looking Rosenbauer America Panther 1500-3000 airport firetruck which is very G2 Pyro-esque, with Autobot symbols on both cab doors. It was involved in filming on Van Buren in Chicago.
