    Nelson of Shoot For The Edit has contacted Mr. Michael Bay, a couple of days ago and foundout that Mr. Bay got the permission to film Transformers 3 at the National Mall of Washington D.C.

    Many TFW2005 members did express their confidence in Michael Bay, to ultimately obtain the permission.

    With it, the previously announced “Car Race” scene is good to go.

    "Well, it turns out that article is BS or misleading at best. I spoke to Mike yesterday and he's gotten authorization to shoot on the National Mall."


    Wow....how does he get these permissions? I'm sure money is a factor. But, what a stud. Hopefully no sacrifices were made to obtain permissions.

    It's good for Washington too, to have the publicity. I mean, it's nothing on the scale of what Night at the Museum did for the museum in New York, but every little bit helps.

    I'm really excited to see this car chase now. :D

    What?! No! As someone who has worked on the Mall before, absolutely not! That's going to create a traffic/tourist nightmare!

    I think it would be pretty awesome to have the final battle take place on the Mall, as it does in my fanfic.

    So im going to guess that they start racing in DC and they start zoomin around your usual bayos. Then they make a turn and they end up in Chicago by some strange miracle and finish in Los Angeles ;) .

    I just hop Bee, Sideswipe, the Ferrari and some cool decepticons duke it out

    Ok, my American Geography isn't too hot (UK!) but is the National Mall where the Lincoln Memorial is?

    If so, perhaps we'll get to see Megatron smash the slavery hatin' Prez off his throne and take a seat. And then reinstate slavery. (gravelly trailer voice) FOR HUMANKIND!

    Or perhaps we'll see megs impaled on/home runned by the Obelisk. Or both.

    Oh, come on its Michael bay! Shits gonna smash somehow! :bay

    HAHAHAHAHA.

    Then some dude bursts out the Smithsonian doors arguing with security and wondering where the hell they misplaced an SR-71.
