I spent today chasing down Autobots in Chicago as Michael Bay continued filming Transformers 4 here in Chicago. The day started out kind of slow while filming happened in the offices of the Blue Cross Blue Shield building, but things heated up once the Autobots were racing down Columbus Drive before the end of the day. The Autobots in these videos include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee (Camaro), Hound (green military vehicle), Drift (??? - Corvette), and Crosshairs (??? - Bugatti). Check out all of Seibertron.com's exclusive videos from today ...

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.

I'm guessing we've just had a look at our new badass.

It reminds me of the green goblin mask from the first spiderman movie.

That new face seems way too buggish. While I do like the movies I've got to ask, "why not put a robot looking face on a robot?" This combined with the Santa Claus looking placeholder we've seen along with the twins faces and the wreckers in dotm bum me out a bit.

So, amidst all this propaganda and alien hate, Optimus Prime decided to update his alt mode into the biggest eyesore on the road that just screams alien robot? It is almost like he is driving around flipping everyone off.

Anybody else try to call the number on the bottom of the poster? I got forwarded to some voicemail with no name, saying that"_ " is unavailable and to leave a message. Would have been cool if it was tied to something like the Sector Seven site from a few years back... Here's hoping it will eventually.

"Hope" and "Hate"? That's conflicting...

Is it me, or do the two "watching you" bots (Cons?) seem a tad... generic?

devlingrey wrote:While I do like the movies I've got to ask, "why not put a robot looking face on a robot?"

And what exactly IS a "robot-looking face"? A lot of real-world robots (space probes, car-building 'arms', Roomba, etc. are all technically robots) don't even have anything resembling a head, much less a proper face.

Yeah, the "It's watching you" poster just looks like Blackout/Grindor's head. The other one looks kinda like Shockwave's head with two eyes and a regular mouth.

how much you want to bet thats galvatron, so much for the bots looking different this time around.

0_0 Wow! Thats hot!

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

I just had to. The joke was there!

Anyway, my guess for the 'bot in the "He is watching you" picture is just that it is a generic Decepticon, as they would have used known Transformer faces that were in the Chicago area for proper effect. But if it was not this, and I had to take a guess, my guess would be Straxus... Which is funny because he is kind of a lesser known character, considering. Of course it could be Galvatron or other people of note, considering the poster directly states that "He" is watching you, not just "it".

For reference:

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!

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.

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

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!

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)

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!
