FILMING NOTIFICATION
***PLEASE NOTE THE TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS***

August 19, 2013

Dear Building Owners, Merchants and Residents,

Paramount Pictures will be filming scenes for the upcoming motion picture “Transformers 4” in your neighborhood. We are excited to return to Chicago to capture the same unique Chicago look and remarkable architecture we found so cinematic in 2010. At Alderman Reilly’s request we are reaching out to the local community to communicate our filming activity.

Our production has a number of days for low-level helicopter work in the area. To ensure safety, low-level aerial filming requires temporary street closures to pedestrians and vehicles under the helicopter’s path of travel.

We are currently proposing the following aerial work:

Sunday, August 25th (07:00am – 09:00am) – CHICAGO RIVER / Columbus Dr to Franklin St

- The helicopter will be traveling east and west down the Chicago River from Columbus Dr to Franklin Street, and south on Franklin to Lake Street.

- Bridges at Wabash, State and Dearborn will be raised simultaneously and remain up for a majority of the filming time frame.

- Pedestrians and vehicles will be detoured around the raised bridges.

- Vehicle and pedestrian traffic on lowered bridges can expect 10-15 minute delays during filming. Vehicles and pedestrians will be held outside of the fly-zone ONLY during filming.

- The Chicago Riverwalk and adjacent plazas within the fly-zone will have intermittent pedestrian control.

- Boat traffic can expect 10-15 minute delays during filming between Columbus and Franklin Street bridges.


We are working closely with Alderman Reilly’s office, the Chicago Police Department, the Chicago Film Office and the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure a safe and cooperative filming event. Our goal is to make this a positive experience for everyone involved and we want to address your individual needs and concerns. Please call with any questions you may have. All business will open for normal hours and we will direct you to the closest detour if you choose not to wait. As always, we understand that we are guests in your neighborhood, and will conduct ourselves accordingly. Thank you for hosting us and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

If you like busts and statues, then you're in business! Prime 1 Studios had pieces on display from Age of Extinction at Wonderfest this weekend. Busts of Optimus Prime and Galvatron, replicating the heads and upper bodies of the characters in painstaking detail, plus a full statue of Lockdown with one of his "hunting dogs". It's probably the best merchandise representation of Lockdown that will ever exist, and the price tag is sure to reflect that! Click through to check them out.
Following the earlier report of the Platinum Edition Dinobots. We have word and images by way of the ACG Hong Kong show that show the Transformers Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Dinobots will indeed have new head sculpts. The images confirm there will be mold made to give these figures even better G1 likenesses. Check out the images below for the full details now.

The Transformers Live Action Move Blog has posted a rumor sourced from noted Hollywood insider site Christian Today... which got it from Design & Trend... which got it from some podcast who got it from some random Facebook page ...that Ultra Magnus and the Quintessons will appear in Transformers 5. We're skeptical, for reasons we'll go into in the article - but this is notable because it means the TF5 hype train is underway. Keep reading for more details on this game of Internet Telephone!
From Weibo by way of Autobase Aichi, we have our first look at the Platinum Edition Dinobots boxset! ...which, as it turns out, is not an assortment of G1 Dinobot reissues. Instead, it's a reissue of the SDCC 2014 Dinobots, those being Age of Extinction Voyager Grimlock plus Deluxe Snarl, Strafe, and Slug, all in G1 colors. One nice thing though: you may not get the pop-up Teletraan-1 backdrop, but you do get Voyager-class Slog, who was previously a separate Amazon exclusive! Keep reading to see the packaged figures.
