The filming crew of "TF3" has now been spotted in Detroit AKA Motor City. Detroit is coincidentally a primary location in Transformers Animated.

The filming took place at an abandon auto plant, where as Jalopnik points out various forms of wreckage lie about. To view said images at Jalopnik, click here.

What could have happened there we don't know, but you wanna speculate? Do it in our forums here.

So now that Animated is no more, the Motor City connection is all just a coincidence, huh?

Yeah, I know you mean there's no continuity, but it meant...something. If only to Michigan Transfans. Moreso before the bailouts (sigh)

Is Jalopnik supposed to sound like the name of a Junkion? I can't recall if I'd read that before or not.

"Stationed outside the abandoned behemoth are giant guns, plane wreckage and phony jet engines."

I'm with Jalopnik...the nozzles and what they're attached to in that photo just look like jet engines (so, not Cybertronian to me). Albeit larger than the ones we saw in the race cars. Leftovers of Jetfire maybe?

Wouldn't it be ironic if the movies pulled a leaf out'a Animated's book and had the Autobots chilling in that abondoned building in Detroit....maybe because of the anti-Autobots sentiments? :P Hey, it could happen! XD

That's what I was thinking: It's probably their Earth-base while stationed in a certain place.

They might have some of these around the world. Like when the're on missions, then these might operate as their local operation-bases for lenghtier stays.

That's about 40 minutes due south of me. If I had the time and gas, I'd go check it out.
