Age of Extinction
TF3 Filming in Gary Indiana - Dodge Decepticon?

By Primus on 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?

nah, Ferrari is Italian, somehow we dodged the WWII stigma that Germany got stuck with. before anyone gets mad about that, I'm German too.

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..... 
7:30 pm

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

1:decepticon logo possible 2:maybe a crew member's car 3:it would never be a 4 door car 4:more customised  
1:46 pm

this is either a trick, a leak or the beginnings of some viral campaign. i havent decided which yet, but im leaning toward trick 
9:20 am

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

where i live they use those cars as cop cars. they look pretty bad ass. i like this version better than the older looking new ones.

More Age of Extinction News
Deadline is reporting tonight that Hasbro Studios and Paramount have reassigned Akiva Goldsman away from writing the next Transformers movie. Apparently so pleased with his success leading the Transformers writers room, he will go on now to run a similar project for GI Joe, and then again for Micronauts when time comes to develop that property for film. Reportedly Goldsman will still have a supervisory role over the Transformers movie scripts, but will not be directly contributing to them himself. Keep reading for more on the new writers being negotiated and the original article link below.
Prime 1 Studios continues its series of extravagantly detailed - and plain old extravagant - statues of the Movie Transformers! Limited to a run of 1500, with 500 including an exclusive severed Brawl head, Ironhide sports LEDs in his head and his cannons, and will set you back $1600 USD. Luckily there's a nice gallery of photos available so you can give it a nice, thorough look-over before you buy - keep reading to see!
We have our first good out of package look at the surprise movie Sideswipe figure that appeared for order on RobotKingdom this weekend. Thanks to Jimmy Yu and Ck Wong on Facebook, we've got several nice shots of the figure, showing off its extensive silver paintjob. Between that and being the Dark of The Moon mold, this may be the best overall representation of movie Sideswipe out there. Now, if only we knew why it was given AOE Crosshairs' guns... Click through to see all the photos!
RobotKingdom has posted a listing for a brand new entry in the Movie Advanced Series, a limited edition release of Sideswipe. Based on the Dark Of The Moon Deluxe mold and for some reason including weapons from Age of Extinction Crosshairs, it becomes overall quite inexplicable! RobotKingdom has this as shipping on November 14, and as we have no word on other release avenues for this, it might be a good idea to jump on now if you're interested. Click through to see the in-package photos!
Vending Times has reported on the third iteration of Sega's Transformers: Human Alliance arcade cabinet. An arcade-style lightgun shooter, this new "Super Deluxe" version of the cabinet sports an 80-inch screen and mounted lightguns with recoil action. Said to be "about the size of a kid's bedroom," it should be pretty easy to tell if the version you see is the Super Deluxe. Keep reading for more details and a link!
