Fellow fan-site tfw2005 has new images of Cybertron Con, an event we've mentioned before, these images however are of fan made products.
From TF Club:
Super Deformed Movie Optimus Prime
Target Master Optimus (An Optimus Prime that turns into a gun)
Headmaster Optimus Prime (An Optimus Prime that can turn into a truck cab, robot and Prime head!)
Headmaster Soundwave (A Soundwave tat can turn into a head and robot, (tape-deck maybe?))
A transforming Construction (Could this have something to do with the silhouette we've seen in October of last year?)
And lastly FansProject was also at the event and while they did not show any figures, they did reveal this:
Remember the prototype storyboards shown off at TFCon last year? The Junkion "Collector", the Glacialbots custom combiner group, and the Warbot based on Broadside? These are all confirmed to still be in the pipeline. The Junkion will come in three flavours, male, female and elder. Any one can ride on the back of any other in bike mode. The Glacialbots are still in very early stages but the intention is for them to have a very Generation 1 feel "but more fun". Lastly, the Warbot Broadside is coming along well, and we might be able to look forward to some prototype images of this follow-on to the popular custom piece Warbot Defender soon.

Appreciated forum member Hausjam provides us with new info and images from the Chicago filming a few days ago. Below are his pictures and video from the action:
hausjam wrote:I happened to be staying downtown this weekend. As luck would have it, priceline put us at the Wit on State and Lake. TF3 closed off Wacker between State and Wabash, and Wabash between Wacker and Lake. So we were literally right next door to filming all weekend. It was difficult to get good pictures because security kept forcing everyone to keep moving and telling everyone to take pictures while you are walking. It was rather exciting though, considering I had not even planned on visiting the set while I was downtown.

Shia and Patrick Dempsey with the NEST guys:
Tyrese was done for the day, so he came across to say hi to the crowd:
He hopped in the car and gave a "hoo-yah" to the crowd as he was driving away:
This is the Unitrin building on the corner of Wacker and State:
You can see the letters here scattered on the ground among the debris.
It stands to reason that some Decepticon will take out the top of this building and make the letters come crashing down.
This is an ornamental spire on top of the building on the corner of Wacker and Wabash:
And notice it matches this debris laying on Wabash. This is the prop debris Patrick Dempsey was photographed on top of a few weeks ago during filming:
Michael Bay just before an action sequence:
He kept pacing, contemplating something:
Then he grabbed a camera, and started filming the take himself. He really is a "hands-on" director:
This is the action sequence that followed. They roll camera around 1:05. It's over a minute straight of gunfire. If you watch closely, you can see Bay walking across the bridge with his handheld camera. He followed the Pursuit camera car that raced across the bridge just ahead of him.
Now, judging by the above description, the above photos of Lennox, Epps, the NEST guys crouching behind the bridge and then popping up and firing (which I was not able to get a picture of), and then the fact that the NEST guys were shooting up in the air (and an earlier youtube video I saw showing Bumblebee racing through debris on Wacker right next to this scene) I am thinking Bumblebee races across the bridge with a Decepticon in pursuit and the NEST guys pop up and ambush it. This is simply my conjecture though.
I cannot wait to see the movie, because I am a lifelong tranformers fanatic, but also to see the set on the big screen after seeing it in person, and to see if my conjecture of this particular scene is correct!
Here is a message we received earlier today from Hasbro regarding China's first ever official Transformers convention called Cybertron Con!
HASBRO ANNOUNCES THE FIRST EVER “TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON CONVENTION” IN CHINA
The Largest Official Gathering of TRANSFORMERS Fans Starts Today at Landmark Brand Expo in Shanghai

The panel then opened for questions which were started off with one fan asked about the possibility of "Transformers Spotlight" relaunching. Schmidt replied that they are trying to "hone in" on continuity instead, by focusing on a small cast.
A fan asked about the next appearance of the Transformer Punch/Counterpunch and Schmidt answered that a miniseries entitled "Legacy of Rust" was in development.
A fan asked about the direction of some of the Transformer designs in the IDW's "Transformers" books and Schmidt confirmed that they would be going with Don Figuroa's designs, noting that Figuroa himself would be returning with issue#14 of the ongoing "Transformers" series.
When asked about "The Thirteen" original Transformers, both Schmidt and Costa mysteriously replied, "No comment."
Other topics discussed were some particulars of Transformers Ongoing which we already reported, Dungeons and Dragons, and GI JOE comic book plans.
