The seen where Optimus, the Pontiac Solstice, the 4WD truck and the Hummer turn on the highway is the scene they filmed out here on the road that spans the lakebed. Wonder if they'll use the scene for the movie or not so I can see what the rest of my family witnessed when they blocked the road.
Sorry, I don't know the other 3 good guys' names though. My son and I were looking at the movie toys and he pointed out the ones from the scene. He also said the robot that is a hummer-like vehicle was yellow instead of green like the toy was painted at the store. I'm banking it's likely chartreuse.
