During the Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers Dark of the Moon, we all noticed a newly revamped Optimus Prime. He was bigger, he had wings, and not one, but two swords. The image of him slicing and dicing was awesome and guess what? He’s not the only Prime out there. There’s a new Transformers character named Sentinel Prime, he’s from the same family as Optimus but he’s a different kind of animal. Empire Magazine has the first look at the Autobot side by side with his Prime protege. Take a look…

Sentinel Prime makes Optimus look like a little kid. He has facial hair, or the closest thing an Autobot can have to facial hair. His eyes look weary, and he’s obviously got the wings and the two swords. This robot looks like he’s been through some things in his life. Perhaps he’s an older brother figure to Optimus?

Transformers: Dark of the Moon stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Tyrese Gibson, Frances McDormand, and Ken Jeong.

Transformers Dark of the Moon opens in theaters everywhere July 1, 2011.

What do you think of the first photo of Sentinel Prime? Are you excited to see the film?
