Transformers 3 continues filming in Chicago

The Transformers 3 production filmed in Chicago's famous Loop last weekend, then at Milwaukee's Art Institute earlier this week, and is now back on Chicago's magnificent mile in front of the beautiful Wrigley building and on the Michigan Ave bridge across the Chicago river. I wasn't able to get as close to the action as I was last weekend so the video quality looks even more amateurish than normal. Pictures will be posted soon! In the meantime, here are some new videos which I uploaded to our Facebook page at http://facebook.seibertron.com.

The trailer looks kinda bland tho, it's just a box, in that way, it's TOO G1 if there ever was such a thing ;)

What am I expecting tho? Power Master Optimus Prime with like, the Godmaster extended trailer? Well maybe I am! It's over the top, just what the Bay movies demand, maybe the trailer transforms into something elaborate? If so, it'll certainly transform ELABORATELY! ;)

Great photos for night-time! Thanks!

Wut? Modern box trailer = G1?

I'm pretty sure most trailers look like that (to state the obvious) aside it's shininess. And Michael Bay seems to be convinced that his movies are still "realistic" so I doubt he'd be doing anything outrageous, as much as it would suit the rest of the movie.

And it's just a trailer. Heck we just saw prime rolling out without it just now. So chances are, it's been tipped over and Prime left it behind, or it got blown up. Either way, it's not going to have any greater role than carrying stuff around.

I'll second this idea for the next film! If they could bring back Scorponok for a few seconds in movie 2, why not bring back Barricade in movie 3 and give him an awesome fight scene? He deserves one! :D

I've wondered the same thing unless Ford doesn't want it to be featured in a movie with a bunch of GM products? There has to be some reason why he wasn't in the last movie and that no one has seen night or day of him here in Chicago with the other cars.

Fellow Seibertronian, Ryan Froneyberger (froneyzone), has provided us with some new pictures and video from Saturday's Transformers 3 filming action in Chicago on Michigan Avenue.

froneyzone wrote:I'm kind-of "geeking out" about these. I saw this early Friday morning and couldn't really tell what it was all about. Nothing came out of the semi-trailer and nothing went into it (that I saw) - it just showed up...sat for a few minutes and made a turn...while they were filming.

If you notice under the number 98...it has NEST printed on it! Could this be the NEST moving headquarters...or better yet (and this is where I started "geeking out") Ultra Magnus!!! That would be so AWESOME!!!!!!!! Or maybe it's just another one of Michael Bay's cruel jokes on us fanboys!

Hmm, could be ultra magnus, could be just a truck they use to carry characters, like in ROTF they used a truck that carried the three bikes didn't they? or maybe it was troops on quad bikes? i don't think we should get our hopes up until we get solid evidence or confirmation! :-?

On a sidenote, has anyone seen jolt on location? i hope they dont exclude him from the film, with all these characters that they won't be bringing back i hope they have explanations for it rather then just not mention them (chromia, jolt?, wheelie, skids/mudflap) i know we saw pictures of what's believed to be new alt modes for the twins and nothing else since so they might be in a scene or two and thats it, but i can see them not even being mentioned, would be simple, could say that NEST sent all them on a mission elsewhere, or that the main autobots in this one have been specially selected for the missions in hand, or just simply say they all went back to help on cybertron! That's the main problem i have with these michael bay films, the plot holes and when characters simply dissapear never to be seen again (i'm looking at you barricade and wheelie) but i'm happy as long as there's big robot fights :D

yeah i would ave to agree with the prime toy coming with the trailer, but he shouln't be a leader class.


because if hes a leader toy with his trailer it would be expensive as hell.



i hope OP and megatron both just get voyager releases..........just make prime an ultra class to have his trailer in the box with him

Well, in the comic adaptation from the 1° movie, Prime killed Barricade.

FYI, that truck people are hoping is Ultra Magnus has Carroll Shelby's autograph on the cab at the top/back of the sleeper.

Maybe the old chicken farmer is supplying some cars for the movie.
