Could this Be Our First Look at Transformers 3 Robot?
MISP Steve - Wednesday, June 16, 2010
Images are flowing from the Transformers 3 set in Chicago this week. Get a look at what AintItCoolNews has posted from one of thier readers. They are walking the line on this one. Citing it could just a filming prop or some Russian Transformer? This would the USA versus Russia plot line that Bay recently hinted at in the news. It looks goofy as all heck, almost like Optimus Primal? You'll have to look at this one and decide for yourself.
An AICN reader called Bruiser sent in this snapshot - he/she says it's from the Chicago set of TRANSFORMERS 3.
If so, I'm guessing this is a practical stand-in for a bot that'll eventually be enlivened by CGI - but that's merely a guess.
Is this some kind of mechanical man built by humans to use as army against Decepticons? Or...we've recently learned that part of the picture's plot plot involves the U.S./Russian Space Race (details HERE). Perhaps this a Russian bot of some sort - it has that weird Soyuz coloring)?
All of this is merely speculation & I could be completely wrong. Just thinking out loud...
What is kind of interesting is you can make out a camera and crew that appear to be filming the robot on the back of the truck or something to that effect. This is just speculation here and on the Primal guess. Welcome to the circus that is Transformers 3. Check out the complete post over at aintitcool.com.

Even though we know now it isn't from MBFormers 3, the stand ins for TFs or anything that will be added in later is usually a long stick with a flag on it...just a point in the air that the actor can have something to talk to before it's added....just like in the scooby-doo movies. that add... read more
thank god that thing isn't from TF it looks like a terminator on Steroids who fell in a tub of blue paint and then rusted and torn apart in a chopshop then put back together again with someone reading the instructions wrong

Th 4RL deal
I do think that killing Bay over the film franchise would be a little reactionary and overzealous; since when should making a bad movie incur the death penalty? (Though I'll admit it would probably resolve most of my issues with "direct-to-video sequels", Uwe Boll, and Paul W.S. Ander... read more
I really hope this is no one important, just a drone or human armor...please not Optimus Primal :S
I'm from Chicago. I think it's Rattrap, since there are rat problems in the city. The allspark had to get in the sewer at some point.
i would assume that it's some sort of prop and/joke in the movie.
Dude, I loved those. My favorite was always the sea green digital clock that turned into the little base. It was sweet!
I've been thinking those Computer Warriors guys, not sure if that's the name of the line though. Like MASK but with computer themed toys and micro themed play sets (like the Pepsi can). The figures, this is sorta reminding me of those.

Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMTFM-12 JAZZ from Transformers film. First Lieutenant Jazz is one happy-go-lucky Autobot. Good-natured and always able to take things in stride, he provides a decent contrast to the more serious demeanor of Ironhide or Optimus Prime himself. He's also a talker, something Ironhide and Prime like to tease him about. He might be the smallest Autobot but he's by no means a coward, willing to take on any foe, big or small.

Deadline Hollywood has dropped a new post letting us know that even before Transformers 5: The Last Knight is in the can. The Transformers 6 Bumblebee spinoff is moving ahead with plans as the scirpt is reported to be complete, the search for a movie director begins.
With Transformers films having been handled exclusively by blockbuster titan, Michael Bay. Meeting expectations of the past, while hopefully lifting the franchise out of the Bayhem are high.
The Bumblebee script penned by writers room member, Christina Hodson, appears to aim the 6th installment at the lady fans of franchise.
