TF3 Filming in Gary Indiana - Dodge Decepticon?
Primus - Thursday, April 01, 2010


The reports by way of Slashfilm and TFLAMB with news about the Production Weekly is reporting via a Tweet that Tranformers 3 is said to be revving up and headed for the Majestic Star Casino in Gary, Indiana on April 12th for a "pre-vis scene." I assume that means, pre-visual? There's also some very bogus looking images posted by The Realm Toys of a late model Dodge Charger with a Decepticon emblem on an unidentified back-lot.

Supposedly these came from a mole on the set who snapped the images with his cell-cam:
    "I was doing my normal rounds on the lot and came across the Transformers 3 work. All the stuff that you guys had reported SuperHeroHype had was there and more! The main Transformers cars are all there including 2 that I didn’t see in the previous movies. One is a autobot that I couldn’t get close enough to take a picture of because it was being guarded so that it would not be scratched/ damaged. It was a red Ferrari. The other (which wasn’t being guarded as heavily) is a decepticon. It was a dark navy Dodge Charger. I managed to snap a couple of pics with my cell. Sorry for the poor quality."
Note there is no mention of a the Red Ferrari Bay revealed in a previous news report. Upon further review, the images appear to show a 2010 Dodge Charger when it is most likely Bay would be working with something more modern, if not a concept. However, vehicle-based Decepticons have mostly been modern vehicles (Saleen Mustang for Barricade and Audi R8 for Sideways). Even if it as a 2010, it would very likely be more customized than the car that appears in the images.

April fools, or coincidence?

Looks like the logo was photoshopped onto the car. I'd say April Fools. I also thought Exotic cars such as Ferrari didn't want to be associate with War Machines.....

nonsense. by these standards, my 00' Elantra will also be in the movie as an Autobot. not even remotely similar to the movie aesthetic.

Yeah its B.S. If ANY dodge was gonna be a Decep, it would be the Challenger, not the Charger. 4-door POS....

The LA Times has published an article today talking about Hasbro's forward-looking plans with their feature film business. As we'd heard about previously, Hasbro is planning their own cinematic universe in the style of Marvel's movies, bolstered by the runaway success of the Transformers film series. This article goes in to a little more detail on early plans for that, including a new try at GI Joe. There's also a little bit about next year's Bumblebee-focused spin off movie. Keep reading for select excerpts and a link to the article!
With the new Transformers: The Last Knight coming our way. I thought it would be interesting to share something rare and likely unseen from the first Transformers (2007) movie where it all began, 10 years ago. Behold, one of the fanciest Transformers press-kits you may have ever seen. Those who attended the Toy Fair 2007 special preview event, were given one of these press kits that actually transforms!
Just up on the official Prime 1 Studio Group page is a first look at their soon to be released Transformers Dark of the Moon edition Shockwave statue. Emotionless, coldly logical, utterly ruthless... killing is all Shockwave lives for. - Optimus Prime. Transformers: Dark of the Moon SHOCKWAVE will be available soon for preorder this month stay tuned!
ThreeA has posted a preorder listing for their next Transformers Premium Scale Collectible Figure: Evasion Edition Optimus Prime from Transformers: Age of Extinction! The figure is in robot mode, so the callback to the Evasion Mode cab-forward truck is mainly one of deco. That said, there is a lot of deco on this figure. Keep reading to see!
Entertainment website Deadline is reporting that the Bumblebee-focused entry in the Transformers live action movie series due in 2018 now has a director on board. Travis Knight will have the distinction of directing the first live action film installment that won't be in Michael Bay's care. Knight was previously the director for Kubo And The Two Strings, and while that is a short credit list in this role, it's a pretty powerful first effort.
