Optimus Prime’s Trailer Confirmed For Transformers 3 And A Chicago Filming Footage

1278781051_IMG_5309

Thanks to 2005 Board Member 245am and Jimmy88, we have the possible confirmation regarding the Trailer of Optimus Prime in Transformers 3 as we posted few moments ago.

Jimmy88 not only managed to take some good photos of a Chicago Filming, but 245am also recorded a video from the filming scene.

The images confirm the return of “The Twins”; Skids and Mudflap in a very modified manner (Just like we’ve seen in the pictures earlier).

Also, Ironhide is slightly modified here and there.

The video will feature Optimus Prime, Ratchet, Bumblebee, The Red Ferrari, Convertible Sideswipe and a new mysterious purple vehicle.

You can enjoy the video below and click on the Title Bar to take a look at Optimus with his Trailer, The “New” Twins and the “Modified” Ironhide.

Update 1: Possible images of some Decepticons / Stunticons. Whatever they are, they’re NASCAR style vehicles armed to the teeth!

Update 2: Some more photos added. Action sequences.

Don’t forget to read 245am’s detailed report about the filmed scene on our 2005 Boards.

    Sorry if this should go elsewhere, but it didn't really seem like a news news item and not just add on to other threads talking about specific aspects of filming schedule...

    Just caught some scenes being staged and filmed in downtown Chicago and saw a couple things of note.
    -Twins are definitely back and in these scenes... same black smartcars with orange/green trim.
    -Ironhide with a NEST alliance liscence plate (can't remember if that was there in ROTF)

    Saw a chase scene being filmed with several Autobots racing behind what looked like demolition derby cars... closed top with plastic net windows over the door windows, scrapped together bodies, etc. Mostly black with some color paint. My first thought was they were filming crew vehicles, and they might have been, but they also had sponsor decals (Gillette I saw for sure) and big racing numbers (again, 13 I saw for sure) and figured they wouldn't put those on cars that weren't being filmed. My first thought when I saw them: Stunticons, but that's total conjecture.

    Cars in the Autobot lineup: Bumblebee, the red Ferrari, Ratchet, Sideswipe with the roof down, Optimus prime and a purplish-blue sports car with black tires that I didn't recognize. My first thought was that it looked exactly like Shockwave's Alternators Alt-mode... I wonder if part of the plot is that he infiltrates the Autobots...

    Optimus Prime definitely, definitely, definitely has a full sized trailer. Again I can't remember if he's been seen in the movies with one before, but I got a clear shot and some photos of it. If thats new, LMK and I'll post pictures... if not, then, oops, my bad.

    Full size trailer???? That's going to be the mother of all toys.

    Am I crazy? Did OP not have a trailer in any movie scenes before?

    I didn't get a photo of the derby cars, my girlfriend got a quick video that she's sending me now and I'll post in a sec. Definitely got a photo of the trailer- it's enclosed with a G1-ish silver swipe down the side (like the original red)

    Sweet! I thought when I saw it that he didn't have a trailer ever before, but couldn't remember if it popped up in any of those helicopter shots of them driving down some road...

    Interesting that it's enclosed with all that talk about the headache rack usually going with a flatbed...

    I love, LOVE the G1-swoosh down the side. Very movie aesthetic of homaging G1 while keeping it modern. Maybe the red would have been too much, but that swipe is unmistakeably G1 inspired
