What's with the new NEST logo? A skull? I don't see them putting that on the toy packaging.

Cool videos, well done on getting the Exclusive! Is Optimus Black? Or is it just the night-time lighting? Trailer looks cool, dare I say... it's G1! *eep* sorry :(

Dunno, I reckon the skull is pretty tame, they've done worse, I mean look at the sunken eye sockets on Bludgeon/Banzai-tron, pretty scary! And Oil-slick from animated had a goats skull for a front on the alt mode.

Night time 8pm dusk lighting. I was able to play around with the light settings on my camera to take some decent still shots that look pretty decent despite it being dusk/dark.

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?"
LOL, I luv the little random clusters of destruction....it just amuses me. I also find it funny they were trying to do media control with the whole "No pics please" when, really there's no way you can get around it. Any passer by with a zoom can snap a few ones and be off. Kuddos for getting that close to the cars.

If I were the crowd control guys, I'd just let everyone be really. It's just a part time gig I would imagine, and it's kind of absurd to try to do media control when your driving the cars around in broad daylight and parking them out in the road all through the night, heavily public roads I might imagine. Still, it's good for us they didn't try too hard to hide things ths time around in Chicago, I can only imagine how worse it will be to put a media blanket around DC when that time comes.

Wow! It's so shiny!

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!

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own & desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the list, do say so! ^^

(Also been working on something big; I'm a writer, so that's a clue... ;))

My guess is this film will involve the Stunticons (Menasor) vs the Aerialbots (Superion). In my eyes the video's confirm it - and we have already been told that James Avery will voice Silverbolt.

Now that you mention it, that WOULD make sense. I just hope that the Aerialbots & Ferrari 458 Italia are the only new Autobots, so they can get everyone enough screen time and focus on character. I want more Ironhide, Ratchet, Sideswipe and especially Jolt!

The NEST symbol is AWESOME. It's like a Transformers version of the Brazilian B.O.P.E symbol ;total bad-asses in their own right. This movie is looking better and better every time new pictures/video are shown of it.
Does being an aircraft mechanic make me better at Transforming these things? Sadly, no.

Great shots! The one with Prime and his Trailer in front of the office building shall now be my background for the next few months at least. Thanks for that!

Just a quick note: did anyone else notice that in the pic of Optimus w/Trailer, there is a sign above him advertising "Prime Office Space"? Now that is a funny fluke. :lol:

Seibertron.com Exclusive - Transformers 3 'Bayhem'

Postby Blurrz » Mon Jul 12, 2010 12:01 am

Motto: "The Wreckers. Weird brain bullets. Impossible odds... It doesn't get much better than this."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
If you wanted more explosions, more wreckage, and more robots fighting mano a mano, well there's no doubt that you're going to see all of this in Transformers 3. Our in-depth exclusive look at the set of Transformers 3 in Chicago continues with video segments that we like to call 'Bayhem'. You might ask yourself, what would happen if gigantic alien robots ripped through Chicago's Magnificent Mile? This ain't CGI, no these props are real, and the populace of Chicago were treated to Michael Bay's personal style of destruction. If you thought the first two movies were filled to the brink with destruction, you'll see with these videos that Michael Bay still has tons of ammo left up his sleeves!

TF3 Chicago - Destruction in the streets and "Autobots GO HOME"


TF3 Chicago - More Bayhem from the "L"


TF3 Chicago - More video from the "L"


We've got more exclusive coverage coming up, so keep it tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest and fastest Transformers news on the net!
