    Chicago Warehouse Set Pics and Report
    It seems that Transformers 3 production in Chicago has moved away from the public eye and into a warehouse location. In a set report with pictures and two brief videos from "big ander" at the NeoGAF boards, a scene is being filmed involving several Autobots and Decepticons as part of the overall sequence of event being filmed for the movie's Chicago finale.

    The warehouse itself seems more like a storage location for all the vehicles, not just TFs, used for the last few weeks including the Datsuns and the Mad Max truck. As for the two videos, one shows a camera rig resetting while the second shows two SUV's driving quickly down South Indiana Avenue near East Cermak Road. As the images show, they seem to look like the Decepticon SUVs spotted in TF3's first week in Chicago. The pic to the right is the location before TF3 production dressed it up as an auto body shop.

    Below is the report with sample pics but the full hi-def gallery and videos can be found here (password: anderbay). Thanks to David for the pics, links and location.

    They filmed a shot over and over with Ironhide, Bumblebee, and the new Ferrari driving down a street being chased by two Decepticons. For most of the shots, Ironhide was just waiting at one end of the street while Ferrari and Bee drove toward him, and then other shots were just the Ferrari. We were told that it's a scene near the end of the movie where they're in a climactic fight. Optimus was not on set, so I guess he's fighting somewhere else.

    The warehouse was more fun. We ended up not being able to take pictures, but I still grabbed a few. We saw the duplicates of Ironhide, we saw Ratchet, we saw the car version of the hair robot, we saw both Optimuses (I touched one), we saw that new firetruck, we saw the armored car decepticon, we saw the nascar autobots, and we saw one of the twins. ...We also saw the three warehouse-spanning rows of wrecked cars. That was cool. Oh, and we saw a white Maybach outside of the warehouse that looked like it was being moved. I don't really know if it's even being used in the movie, but it was still sweet. Other random stuff:

    - saw the sort of 3D storyboarding of the action sequences.
    - Saw a bus being put together in one part, and an exploded version of it in another area.
    - Saw a cool big long white Benz that looked like it had been shot up. I'll be sure to look for that in the movie.
    - Saw an earlier version of a school bus, and then a second version being moved. The second version had braces and stuff inside; I'm guessing it'll be destroyed.

    I just remembered one more thing: The warehouse had two old models of Bumblebee. I'm guessing he goes back to his old car form just for a bit for some reason. Dunno why.

    The older versions of Bee might be for that rumored
    about a flashback sequence
    because there have been reports of the
    Ice Cream truck
    being used again for one.

    I didn't know they had two Primes! That's cool.

    I want to know why a lot of the vehicles have European plates? :inquisiti

    It could be that parts of Chicago are standing in for a city in Europe. They did it last film since if you don't need iconic landmarks for a scene in a city it's better than having to fly the production team there.

    Guys, I live in Chicago and that's not a real person. It's just a sculpture/statue on LaSalle Street, that's all. :thumbs2:

    ummm, whouldnt they just use footage from the first movie for flashback scenes, at least with Bee, especially since he didnt stay in the 76 camaro form for long and i doubt we missed much, or you mean that they are using that for a scene where BUMBLEBEE is flashing back to before movie one, and not sure why they would need the Icecream truck again, dont know why they would flashback with the twins

    does anyone know where the ACTUAL warehouse is? there's a warehouse near my house where a lot of the props and trailers are stored, i want to know if it's the same one.

    also anyone know if they are still filming by 'cermak and s. indiana ave'. i live near by and i'd like to check it out.
