Wacker Drive in Chicago, Illinois. A peaceful main street in the city's downtown, full of stunning architecture and the hustle of business people. Well, it was peaceful until Michael Bay and company showed up. Right by the river, Wacker Drive is now littered with props of destruction, and full of the busy filming crew of Transformers 3. In the following videos you'll witness that making a movie isn't as simple as it seems. Helicopters, Lighting Trucks, and crew galore were hard at work yesterday.

Seibertron.com Exclusive Look at Transformers 3 Stunticons in Action

Postby Blurrz » Mon Jul 12, 2010 12:43 am

Motto: "The Wreckers. Weird brain bullets. Impossible odds... It doesn't get much better than this."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
After Optimus Prime and the Autobots annihilated much of the Decepticon forces in Revenge of the Fallen, it was only inevitable for some new and evil faces to show up in Transformers 3. Our coverage from Downtown Chicago continues, as we've got an in-depth look at the Stunticons. This group is comprised of three Nascars, all tuned out and tricked out with machine guns, rockets, speed boosters and gadgets. There's the Red Nascar 42, homaging Juan Montoya, the Blue Nascar 48, homaging Jimmie Johnson, and the Green/White Nascar 88, homaging Dale Earnhardt Jr. What you'll be seeing in the following videos is the Stunticons, up close and driving fast in action!

Really looking forward to the film now and can't wait for the crew to hit DC. If I can't make it as an extra, I will certainly have my 4-year-old son with me to catch glimpses of the action. Chase on the National Mall should be killer.

One more Transformer to add to my list of Possible Transformers that might be the "Stunticons":
Here is the current holders;

*Mirage
*Hot Shot
*Smokescreen

Now, the final guesser is....

*REFLECTOR

"WHAT???" You might ask? Well, think of it; the NASCARs are of similar colors of the three components of Reflector, toy-wise speaking, so it's very possible that these cars are Reflector. Who knows, their robot modes might even look G1-esque.

Im no fan of NASCAR but I love the original Stunticons ill have to pick up the figures for these guys when they come out. I hope they dont pull any monkey business like they did with the motorcycle triplets in the last film. (a secret combiner form that is mysteriously scrapped or a repaint that comes out a year too late and in the wrong color)

I wouldn't be surprised if that Red Ferrari turns out to be a reformatted Sideswipe.

As for the Stunticons - I hope they name 'em either Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, or Wildrider (sorry, Motormaster is still a truck in my mind).

Motto: "Build a Giant Robot? Sure it's safe, I mean...it's not like two Stars from a childhood tv show are going to hotwire it and take over the world....right?"
It's funny I was more excited to see the camera equipment then the cars...LOL Must be a filming thing. I was drooling over that Dolly Rig they have set up on that car, I dont know if it's automated or manual control with a cockpit retrofitted on the roof. That lighting truck is knarly too, I'd be so nervous setting that thing up that high in "The Windy City" XD I wonder if they had the "Bay Buster" on set, or if they plan on filming a majority of the explosions and crashes on a closed set whilst capturing the gist of the after math and car chases here in Chicago.

The Nascar Death Race cars are fun. My faves are #42 and 88, I wonder if their respective drivers will make cameos via their holographic selves. I'm glad they gave them these half way battle ready transformation modes and that Bay has got over his phobia of "Doing more Car chase scenes."

What I would luv to see is a Formula 1 car Decepticon, that would just be so much fun. Especially if these are the "Stunticons".

-Josh

P.S. My favorite picture is the random arm at the end, I'm assuming thats Bay's arm? LOL :lol:

Gotta wonder the toys are gonna be like for the Stunticons. If the car modes are already armed to the teeth, how are the robots gonna be weapon-wise? And is Hasbro gonna cheap out again and make them all repaints?

Barricade never died, only in comics and books.

Glad these aren't true to the Stunticons, so we can have these, rename them, and them custom make movie style combining actual Stunticons!
I really like where the movie's going, machine gun cars are pretty awesome.

I love Prime's trailer. I just hope it has some function in the story and it's not just a prop. Roller maybe? I really hope... or it could serve to transport the NEST people...

The Ferrari is just amazing. Can't wait to see him in robot mode... who could it be?

The Nascar cars... amazing. I really like them. I don't know why people say they are autobots... they have the evil look of a decepticon LOL

I'm very intrigued about the mercedes... it's a transformer too or what? maybe it's just a human vehicle. What bothers me the most is the Germany plate... Maybe it is an autobot who landed in germany and scanned a car there and then, somehow, reunited with the rest of the autobots
