Transformers Movie Update: Optimus Prime Will NOT Have Lips — So Sayeth Michael Bay!

The Bay speaks, and here's what he has to say about our little video we obtained of Autobot king trucker Optimus Prime speaking with the lips:

"The unreleased ad (Prime speaks) that was posted on youtube was a test that European were making with the ads. The clip where OP was "speaking," lets just say that it wasn't OP or Cullen speaking. It was something the European studios added on their own. In fact, it was a test shot."

Glad he finally cleared that up. Oh yeah, we've also got some new screen shots from the movie to show you — enjoy. We know we will, because tonight will be the first night in a long while we can finally sleep soundly knowing Bay hasn't fubar-ed at least this one tiny part of our most cherished memories of childhood.
