Luis Gomez, "About Last Night" columnist from the Chicago Tribune, reached out to us here at Seibertron.com to let us know about a video montage he put together. The video features various footage of Transformers 4 filming around Chicago this past weekend and shows a few things that I didn't have an opportunity to capture on film to share with all of you. You can view Seibertron.com's coverage of this past weekend by viewing our images, our videos, and our Propaganda wall coverage.

In this video, Luis caught a brief moment of Mark Wahlberg coming out of 300 East Randolph, Kelsey Grammer on set, Michael Bay's helicopter flying very low over the Chicago River alongside Upper Wacker, a crowd of people running and screaming through Millennium Park and underneath the Cloud Gate (aka "The Bean") and even has a nice slow motion clip of the big car explosion pyrotechnics event from McCormick Place.

Yeah, I was hoping with a new trilogy that they'd reel in the generic-sci-fi-bug-predator-alien-monster-bad-guy-look. Instead, looks like they're jumping into that cliche, looks-like-every-other-sci-fi-movie-made-in-the-past-15-years mess with both feet.

So like the last three movies, I'm left with the sole motivation of going being to listen to Peter Cullen voice Optimus on the big screen.

But to each their own. I know there are some kids who have grown up with the Bayverse now, and to them I hope they truly enjoy these.

I was thinking Galvatron or Cyclonus for the "hes watching you" poster. All this excitement about the new movie and a Melvins 30th anniversary tour! Thats awesome!

Bay's helicopter was flying pretty low near the end of the montage...

With the two cars representing Bumblebee driving side-by-side, now I'm beginning to wonder if one of them, specifically the older Camaro, is not actually Bumblebee, but another, as-of-yet unnamed character, with Bay doing his misinformation cover-up tricks.

Since they went and killed off the entire existing clan of Decepticons, now would be a good time to try out a different look. I don't necessarily mind the old style (certainly got enough toys of it), but at the same time I'm not really wowed by the apparent Decepticons in the posters.

I mean, just look at the detailing on that hat! 10/10 would buy!

I just had to. The joke was there!



You, sir, have just laid the foundation for the next "If you noticed the hat first, I have some bad news for you..." meme. LOL :P

And I have to admit, after seeing those pics I could genuinely care less if one of those cars had actually transformed and started blowing sh** up in real life right there in front of me. My attention would TOTALLY have been elsewhere. :x

Either that or bay is recreating some scenes from first film bumblebee deivng by cameo in tunnel to transscan make mikela happy or there getting cars in formation for next scene.

Am very ezcited for this film should have ended with third one but thisone could be promisng kelsy grammer needs shave he looks better without beard ha his helic op ter was very low like to see that scene in fil I how it looks.

Its to bad we wont see any of these posters in film to show emotion from human prospective how much they hate bots in life from chicago war it will really fit if its just for few seconds

WHO is that?! :shock:


Looks like the original Megatron head design that ended up being scrapped. Maybe it's being revived for another character, or it's just intended to be a generic scary robot for the populace.


you need to take another look at the original head.. this is nothing like it.. other than having eyes and a mouth.. it's completely different.

All this speculation of who the new guys is... what if it's no one we know about? What if it's a fully new character, new name and all, made completely exclusively for this movie (like how Crowbar and Igor were)?

Marky Mark and the Uptown bunch are currently on location in Chicago, IL. Seibertron.com contributor commander_ruckus grabbed a few pictures of the Uptown area being used for filming a Transformers 4 scene that takes place in Texas. Check out his pictures below or in our gallery that can be viewed by clicking here.

A crazy looking dual machine gun vehicle/device/apparatus was spotted on the set of Transformers 4 yesterday in Chicago. This vehicle was on the back end of a semi-truck's long trailer bed going back and forth on Lower Wacker Dr. Apparently Mark Wahlberg and other actors were interacting with this vehicle/device/apparatus while it was being filmed. No other details or specifics about the scene were obtained. I'm assuming that the semi-truck and trailer will be removed with CGI so you'll just end up seeing this dual machine gun vehicle moving down the street for a scene in the movie. We have a brief video of the vehicle being filmed below as well as some pictures. Stay tuned for more TF4 news as it becomes available!

The best part about this is that I saw this yesterday as I was browsing Imgur for my daily hilarity, and the caption jokingly said it belonged to Optimus Prime.

That big weapon looks awesome. It reminds me of onefof those advanced new military weapons called the hydra, I think. The one that was in that movie Olympus fallen where it was computer senser controlled shooting down them helicopters with non-stop firing of two 50's and grenade launchers. I'm sure this Transformers modified looking hydra weapons systems is going to do some damage in the upcoming movie. 8)

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that this is a prop "cockpit" section (or turret section, whatever) of a much larger cybertronian vehicle, which would be added in with CGI later

I'd say that's a mighty sturdy limb. I'm also going out on a limb to say that I'll bet it blows up. :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

My guess... GALVATRON... yeah, Hugo Weaving won't be the voice but Frank Welker is on the project so he could voice him. Or get Leonard Nimoy back for another go. He was good in the movie as Galvatron. Didn't care for Sentinel Prime.

Nicola Peltz' fan page on Twitter has shared with the public images of Nicola Peltz, Mark Wahlberg, and Jack Reynor interacting with the mysterious, gatling-gun armed prop on-set in Chicago that we brought you exclusive images of yesterday, which appears to confirm that is indeed a vehicle of sorts. What could this equipment be? Cybertronian technology suited for human needs? A part of a Cybertronian? Speculate away in the Energon Pub forums!
