Transformers 4 Updates: Filming Images from Taylor, TX, Fire Breaks Out in Pflugerville, No Fox

The Taylor Daily Press have updated their facebook page with a gallery of images form the "Transformers 4" filming in Taylor, TX. We see Mark Wahlberg and director Michael Bay on set, and get our best look yet of the older model rusty cab over style truck, which features flames just like another truck in the movie franchise...........

In other "Transformers 4" Texas filming news, a fire broke out at a location in Pflugerville. TMZ reports a fire broke out in the attic of a 100 year old farm house, possible started by pyrotechnics. Luckily local fire departments were able to save the structure, but there was significant damage to the attic. One civilian injury was reported.

Image

Lastly, despite the suspicious #MeganFox hash tag that was attached to the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe image posted on Paramount's official Instagram account, and the even more suspicious responses from Shoot for the Edit's admin nelson, he insists she will not be in "Transformers 4".

nelson wrote:He already said "No". But then people respond with "but that was in April!"

He could said No again today and tomorrow they'll be saying "well, that was yesterday".

BTW, I know he's to busy to address what I call a non-issue.

While I won't be surprised if Fox does happen to be in the movie, I couldn't care less. Was always in it for the bots, and those alone.

You didn't notice the G1 Optimus Prime alt mode with Movie Prime's flames?

I think Mr. Bay was forced by crew to put in a little something for the G1 fans out there.
Which makes me more excited :)

Yeah, I did notice the truck, but it's been shown already in other earlier posts. Who was this rumored to be again? Grimlock? Galvatron?

I vaguely remember something about the truck being a "transitional" alt mode between the old movie long-nose truck and new Western Star. Got to go dig up that movie thread again.

GUYS. I just had a mind-blowing thought. I think this movie involves time travel. BOTH Prime and Bee have been seen with retro alt modes. What if they had to adopt them to blend in because they're in another time. And that's when Bay introduces Hot Rod - because, you know, what makes a better Hot Rod than an actual hot rod? I know, now I'm sounding crazy. Just watch Michael Bay put something like time travel in as just a lame daydream of the main character, to tease us with just a glimpse of something we always wanted but will never ever have: A retro-styled live action Transformers movie. But that's way off-topic...

Time travel. If that's what it is, I called it.

I think it is obvious in these pictures. Somehow the story goes back in time to the 70s. Look at the cars and trucks. Old Mustang, old Chevy pickup truck, the mini cooper. I think Bee and Prime go back in time or something. Bee being the old muscle Camaro and Prime being the old flat front. Dont know why its all rusted but im sure we will find out. Imagine the old light blue Chevy truck as Kup? Lots of unanswered questions still. Perhaps Walbergs character originates from the past.

If Optimus went back in time, why would he scan an already rusty truck?
Also, I can see by the paint that the truck cab is entirely blue except for the flames

Yea no, the whole "traveling back in time and adopting G1 alt-modes has been around since the very first rumors surrounding ROTF.
Not going to happen, since this "G1 Prime truck" has been filmed alongside Prime's new beefcake truck alt-mode.

But it's kinda cool that it has flames.

Only other transformer that I know of other than Optimus that has flames is Hot Rod. Come on Rodimus lets see you get your big reveal. At least I hope its Hot Rod.

Firstly, you, ah, have a couple of mispellings in your title. For instance, I don't think any First have any Beaks. :P

Anyway, I have a theory. Remember in the Armada Comics when G1 Optimus dimension jumped?

Image

I could find it completely feasible that this, along with Bumblebee, are actually from a different dimension where they arrive in the "Good 'Ol Days" insteat of modern times and do stuff there. But of course, things are mixed up when Megatron/Galvatron (I'm predicting a time-traveling Galvatron from our time) show up and destroy all of the Autobots, save Prime (who is wounded in the process, see pictures of the truck) and Bee, who flee to our time to warn us to make sure we stop Galvatron/Megatron.

if Galvatron is indeed in this movie, too bad they already used Leonard Nimoy for Part 3. how cool would it have been to have him return to do the voice.

As far as the older cars go, people still do drive around in them. Albeit few. But this is a MOVIE. The whole time traveling idea just seems way too far fetched. Besides, this movie takes place a few years after Dark of the Moon.

Theory:

Optimus & Bumblebee travel to the past (probably in pursuit of some Decepticons, that decided to go back in time and awaken Megatron early, and alter the events of the preceding three movies, creating a nightmarish alternate All-Hail-Megatron reality), and adopt appropriate alternate modes (including a then shiny new blue and red COE).

Bumblebee is able to escape back to the future, but Optimus is left in the past.

Optimus cannot risk interfering with history anymore than he has, and has sparing access to appropriate resources, so he parks himself out of sight somewhere for 40yrs, and waits for the time stream to catch up.

Based on RotF Jetfire's poor health, and even more so on DotM Megatron's condition, we know that conditions on Earth are not as kind to Transformers as those on Cybertron, leading to relatively rapid decay, at least superficially, in the absence of appropriate resources. (But then, a modern human being wouldn't look so good if they were stranded in the stone age for a couple decades, so it seems understandable.)

Back to the Future Prime winds up, for one reason or another, pressured into abandoning his vow of silence/secrecy, and comes out of hiding early, teaming up with his 'past' self before that self travels back in time (maybe the time traveling Prime tries to dodge a paradox by introducing himself as Ultra Magnus, now that his paint has faded to rusted white).

This still produces a paradox, of course, but as far as most audiences are concerned, it'll be 'resolved' when Paradox Prime sacrifices himself heroically and prevents the time travel from occurring, leaving us with two years to gripe about the abundant plot holes, but buy up every version of pre-rusted COE time traveling Prime we can get.

Oh, and alternate time-line Megatron/Galvatron somehow survives the change in the time stream, effectively resurrecting him for the next two movies.

Hmm... I think your on to something. I've notcied that all the cars in that shot were of 70's era and older. Good eyes.

Sorry for the double post, but besides the flames, the faded white stripe going down the said of the beat up flat nosed truck is very reminisante of G1 Prime. Just say'in. :D

Remember though bay likes the mass of a character to be representative of its size in both modes. That being said I believe that truck is too small to be Optimus.

I hate to admit that it might be Hot Rod. =_=; I hate Hot Rod, I really do. I'd much rather it be some sort of time-and-space-jumping Optimus, I'd love that, if for no other reason than having Movie Optimus and G1 Optimus on the same screen at the same time. 'Twould be epic. :michaelbay:

This is clearly reverse psychology. You want me to believe that it WILL be time travel! It's totally going to be. There's no other possibility. :shock:

(Dude, calm down, nobody knows what they're actually going to do, and time travel is an entirely reasonable possibility. We don't know what the script is yet. All we know is that there will be :michaelbay: . And prooobably more :michaelbay: . And maybe :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: for good measure. :lol: )
