They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

TRON's Grid Bug, in a cameo that will surprise you...

The steering wheel robot is the steering wheel of a Cadillac Escalade, transformed into a creepy Transformer with spider-like limbs. It was given life when Sam Witwicky accidentally dropped the All Spark. It seems to like its owner and hugs her face.

It's not a Legion . . . Thank God.

Transformers (2007) film

When Sam accidentally drops the All Spark, he bumps into a woman's car. She is angry, and believes he dented her car. This is forgotten as the steering wheel of her car develops spider-like legs, wrenches itself free from the steering column, and clamps itself onto her face, hugging her head while she lets out muffled screams. It is unknown if the whole car was affected by the dropped All Spark or just the steering wheel alone, and whether the woman survived the ominous face-hugging steering wheel.


  • The manner in which the steering wheel latches onto the woman's face is a possible homage to the way facehuggers (one of the stages of a Xenomorph in the Alien films) latch onto a host.
