Transformers 2 To Feature Custom Hero Bike, May Be Arcee?

"Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" will feature a custom "hero" bike and a stunt bike, reports the Ventura County, California newspaper Ventury County Star.

The news was revealed in an article spotlighting local Camarillo, CA bike shop RetroSBK.

The custom bike shop will build three "hero" bikes and three "stunt" bikes. Each of the bikes ran an estimated $40,000.

Images of the motorcycles were, obviously, unavailable.

Will Kenefick, the owner of the shop and primary builder of the motorcycles, estimates that he put in 1,273 hours on the bikes, while the painter racked up 1,036 hours.

Mr. Kenefick was also on-set during the Bethlehem shoot to make sure the bikes were handled properly and working correctly.

Could these bikes possibly serve as Arcee's alternate mode? There's a fair possibility since the leaked call sheet calls for "three Arcee motorcyles."

It could very well mean that the three "hero" bikes are for her glamorous shots, and the three "stunt" bikes for everything else.

Aquarion:

It looks like the Takara repaint.

Thats what i was thinking. I hope she's HAWT in the movie, & doenst look like a guy. And yeah, out of the 6 vehicles, i only took that as meaning there was only 2 characters AT MOST, if not only 1. (The stunt bike could be/is probably for stunts)

AICN is reporting that this may be a possible alt mode for Arcee in TF2

Yeah, multiple production vehicles are pretty common, and probably necessary to keep shooting at the brisk pace Bay seems to enjoy.

"Okay, in this scene, we blow up Arcee."

"What?! We're killing her off? This wasn't in the script."

"Oh, she gets better."

Exactly, remember that there were several Concept Camaro Bumblebees, depending on what they needed the car to do in a particular shot.
