West Coaster, through its pictorial of Universal Studios Hollywood, has confirmed that the Transformers ride is alive and well and is currently under construction.
The ride was announced in October of 2008 but other than Transformers Director Michael Bay voicing opposition over the ride, any further news has been absent.
The images posted by West Coaster provide our first looks at the Transformers ride being under construction but at a very early stage, showing Bumblebee and the Transformers logo on the front.

The documentary video is available on Hulu.com and is embedded below. Mr. Woodbury makes the remark at about 8:16 in the video below, which starts at the beginning of his remarks on the subject. Be sure to stick through the commercial.
