Wacker Drive in Chicago, Illinois. A peaceful main street in the city's downtown, full of stunning architecture and the hustle of business people. Well, it was peaceful until Michael Bay and company showed up. Right by the river, Wacker Drive is now littered with props of destruction, and full of the busy filming crew of Transformers 3. In the following videos you'll witness that making a movie isn't as simple as it seems. Helicopters, Lighting Trucks, and crew galore were hard at work yesterday. Check out Wacker Drive, post-Michael Bay below!

[color=teal]After Optimus Prime and the Autobots annihilated much of the Decepticon forces in Revenge of the Fallen, it was only inevitable for some new and evil faces to show up in Transformers 3. Our coverage from Downtown Chicago continues, as we've got an in-depth look at the Stunticons. This group is comprised of three Nascars, all tuned out and tricked out with machine guns, rockets, speed boosters and gadgets. There's the Red Nascar 42, homaging Juan Montoya, the Blue Nascar 48, homaging Jimmie Johnson, and the Green/White Nascar 88, homaging Dale Earnhardt Jr. What you'll be seeing in the following videos is the Stunticons, up close and driving fast in action!

Is it me or are Prime's smoke stacks bigger than ever? I like his trailer, I cant wait to see the leader class figure with its trailer.

I love that the Mercedes has a Munich numberplate! Nice touch.

The Stunticons look awesome.

True I would also like to see Prowl , Hound , Sunstreaker , Cliffjumper trying to battle a resurected Devastator and Omega Supreme saving them and I still reckon Jazz should be resurected by sector 7

Really looking forward to the film now and can't wait for the crew to hit DC. If I can't make it as an extra, I will certainly have my 4-year-old son with me to catch glimpses of the action. Chase on the National Mall should be killer.

One more Transformer to add to my list of Possible Transformers that might be the "Stunticons":
Here is the current holders;

*Mirage
*Hot Shot
*Smokescreen

Now, the final guesser is....

*REFLECTOR

"WHAT???" You might ask? Well, think of it; the NASCARs are of similar colors of the three components of Reflector, toy-wise speaking, so it's very possible that these cars are Reflector. Who knows, their robot modes might even look G1-esque.

Im no fan of NASCAR but I love the original Stunticons ill have to pick up the figures for these guys when they come out. I hope they dont pull any monkey business like they did with the motorcycle triplets in the last film. (a secret combiner form that is mysteriously scrapped or a repaint that comes out a year too late and in the wrong color)

I wouldn't be surprised if that Red Ferrari turns out to be a reformatted Sideswipe.

As for the Stunticons - I hope they name 'em either Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, or Wildrider (sorry, Motormaster is still a truck in my mind).

It's funny I was more excited to see the camera equipment then the cars...LOL Must be a filming thing. I was drooling over that Dolly Rig they have set up on that car, I dont know if it's automated or manual control with a cockpit retrofitted on the roof. That lighting truck is knarly too, I'd be so nervous setting that thing up that high in "The Windy City" XD I wonder if they had the "Bay Buster" on set, or if they plan on filming a majority of the explosions and crashes on a closed set whilst capturing the gist of the after math and car chases here in Chicago.

The Nascar Death Race cars are fun. My faves are #42 and 88, I wonder if their respective drivers will make cameos via their holographic selves. I'm glad they gave them these half way battle ready transformation modes and that Bay has got over his phobia of "Doing more Car chase scenes."

What I would luv to see is a Formula 1 car Decepticon, that would just be so much fun. Especially if these are the "Stunticons".

-Josh

P.S. My favorite picture is the random arm at the end, I'm assuming thats Bay's arm? LOL :lol:

I just love how over the top and cartoony yet badass the Stunticons look.

I cannot wait for the new movie.

Thanks Ryan for all the hardwork in getting this stuff!

Gotta wonder the toys are gonna be like for the Stunticons. If the car modes are already armed to the teeth, how are the robots gonna be weapon-wise? And is Hasbro gonna cheap out again and make them all repaints?

Fingers crossed that the 'Stunticons' get more than a minute of screen time. :P
