Transformers 3 Detroit Filming Details – Set Images, 60s Era And A JetTrain Rumor

dar-constitution-hall-address

Quite a lot of details are pouring in from Detroit regarding Transformers 3 Filming.

First of all, Actors Tyrese Gibson and Lester Speight (Epps and Hardcore Eddie respectively) updated their Twitter Accounts saying that they have arrived there safely and now working hard for Transformers 3.
Tyrese Gibson did more than that though, he posted an image of what’s filming right now. Apparently he’s inside a car with shattered front windows (Click on the Title Bar to see).

More news came from Members of Shoot For The Edit Forums where they said…
“All she was told was that the scenes were from the ’60s and she would be fitted into clothing from that era.”

To confirm that matter, Washington Examiner has an article saying…
“The Walter E. Washington Convention Center will be used for some of the filming, a source tell us, and a number of scenes will be filmed around the National Mall and monument areas. DAR Constitution Hall and the Red Cross building also will have cameos.
“Both of those locations are used to double as the White House,” explained Josh Friedman, communications director of D.C.’s Office of Motion Picture and Television Development. The Red Cross building generally is used for exterior “White House” shots, while DAR Constitution Hall is used for its interior.”

This brings us to a memory… The Rumored Transformers 3 Opening Scene.

Now, Thanks to TFW2005 Board Member ARIQ and TFLAM Blog we have a gallery of Images showing Optimus Prime, The NASCAR Wreckers, Ferrari 458 Italia, Sideswipe, 4 Decepticon Suburbans and here’s the interesting bit… Remember the Giant Jet Engine News few days back? A fan who was there at the set had told TFLAMB…
“Well, the set has changed slightly; now the large black weapon/jet/whatever is situated under the train section in the plant (hard to tell in the pic due to the angle, but one of the “engine” sections can be seen in the right edge of the first photo, just over the top of the fence/pallets). I saw them putting it in place with a crane yesterday. The black GM “government” SUVs are here; one can be seen just beyond Prime’s trailer in the second pic. Most importantly, Michael Bay is here! I got a chance to meet him while he and some crew were walking the perimeter of the set, blocking/framing some shots. He was really cool and stopped to take a picture with me.”

Remember there is no confirmation about this Train+Jet “thingy other than that report. But you guys are free to Speculate.

    Wait, what? That's certainly an autobot trailer, but the cab doesn't feature the regular movie prime color scheme. In fact, it looks to be a different cab altogether. How far should i read into this? Hmmm....

    They did say that Hasbro wanted Triple Changers in the third movie, so maybe the jet-train thing is Astrotrain?

    It's probably just being used to move it.

    If that armored truck isn't Payload, giant grabber claw shaft sticking out his back and all, I will be disappointed.

  5. Fort Max's Avatar Fort Max says

    I'd take a new version of payload redesigned to have the stick out shaft fold out.
    I really would like a new one actually, really liked the design but it was horribly flawed and mine fell apart too.
