Director Steven Caple Jr. cut a deleted scene from Transformers: Rise of the Beasts featuring Optimus Prime battling the Decepticon Transit, a city bus-based villain.

The scene was deemed too dark by test audiences, leading to its removal from the final film.

Transit is a relatively obscure character from the Transformers canon, previously appearing in comic books published by IDW.

In the deleted scene, Transit transforms into a city bus adorned with a poster for Beverly Hills Cop III.

The clip showcases a brutal bus-depot brawl between Optimus Prime and Transit, with varying levels of animation completion.

The scene originally ended with Prime killing Transit and disposing of his body in the Hudson River, but the dark tone prompted the filmmakers to pull back and remove it from the film.
