Too many Fast & Furious Autobot cars in Transformers 4 movie

7 out of 8 Autobots in Transformers 4 are sleek cars. What happened to utility?

Paramount Pictures released official photos of the Autobots vehicle forms. Seven out of the eight are sleek vehicles. Hound is the only one that is a pure utility vehicle being a Medium Tactical Vehicle from Oshkosh Defense. Even Optimus Prime sports flashy flames. Prime needs to get more down-to-earth and ditch the flames.

Why are all the cars sleek? Why not have more utility vehicles? A few thoughts:

A) Is Transformers trying to be like those Fast & Furious movies?

Ugh. That’s why G.I.Joe failed. It tried to be all about testosteron.

B) Do the sleek cars sell more toys?

Perhaps Hasbro, the owner of the Transformers informed director Michael Bay they must have more sleek cars to sell more toys. I don’t know if Bay takes these sorts of orders from Hasbro, but it would be curious to see which vehicle forms sell the most for Transformer toys.
