    Last summer was a time of much early speculation about T3 and the more that came out from spy photos or on-set chatter, the more the rumors would fly. Now that the movie is almost here (and more of the story is known), we can try to figure out some of what we saw and answer questions for what we were seeing back then.

    I haven't read the books/comics/coloring books/etc. that reveals all of these questions. But maybe this thread can be a place to post stuff we were (or still are) clueless about and answer (or speculate about) whatever we can.
    (NOTE: This will probably be VERY SPOILERIFFIC!)

    ------------------------------------

    Remember when they were filming on top of the Jewelers Building and flashing lights were coming from the 4 towered spires?

    Now we know that there's a scene in the trailers showing a Decepticon ship passing by this building as lightning shoots out from the 4 spires during the invasion scene. Do we know more about what's going on up there?

    ------------------------------------

    Remember the scene with Shia driving that crappy yellow and black stripped Datsun into the "Dept of Health & Human Services" and how it caused much debate about whether this is an alt-form for Bumblebee or not?

    Do we know for sure yet whether this is Bumblebee or not?

    ------------------------------------

    Remember when they were filming that red pickup truck with the chase car?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Was this discovered to be for a commercial or is this actually for the movie?

    ------------------------------------

    Remember that big bluescreened foot-looking thing?
    [​IMG]

    Did that end up just being a robot foot afterall or what?

    ------------------------------------

    Remember that alien-looking thing in the alley?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    What the hell was that thing anyway?

    ------------------------------------

    Well I'd assume that the Datsun is bumblebee because
    In one leaked clip a reporter says that congress voted to exile the autobots, so that leads me to believe that they would need new alt modes, right?

    ^ That was my understanding too.

    So, it's almost like
    Sam misses his buddy and got a car with similar detailing to make him feel better?
    Interesting.

    Interesting, I don't recall the red pickup or the large metal foot. I remember A large blue CGI-stand-in for a foot (looked like Megatron's), but I don't remember this.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I thought you were saying those last pics were a foot. Nevermind.

    But I think that blue thing is Megatron's foot.

    That red pick-up looks like the alt mode they used for 'Longarm' in the Rising Storm comics. He was called by shockwave, so maybe its him?

    Or perhaps lennoxs truck or something?

    That was a speculation back then, too, but was shot down due to it being WAY too big. That shot shows a person standing next to it:

    ... so, if that's Megatron's foot, then he would've grown ... A LOT!! I don't think it's Megatron's foot.

    You can't even tell who those people are on the building.

    That video is of the decepticon invasion of Chicago.

    Sam tries to drive the datsun into the Nest base there but is aprehended by Nest guards who don't recognize him. Bumblebee speeds out and transforms, lightly pushing the guards off of sam.

    The Truck was for a comercial bay was shooting at the time as well.

    It was never debunked to be megatron's foot. And megatron is really F****** big dude. That has to be his leg. Its even got the two wheels on the bottom

    Look at the toes and the wheels. Its megatron.

    That building is the main pillar, The Yellow Datsun is just a plain crappy car, not bumblebee, The blue thingy I think has to do with Megatron, that big metal foot is Shockwave's foot, pretty sure since it looks like his foot on the toy

    Look at the picture below, his foot looks just like that metal thing.

    The foot prop is from when Carly is talking to Megatron to motivate him at the end.

    Here are my assumptions:

    Datsun - Just a car for Sam to drive. In the end of the Rising Storm comics, Bumblebee and Sam part ways, and in the recent lengthy trailer, Bumblebee is seen with the rest of the Autobots in their new base of operations for NEST (if that is still active in DOTM). He can be seen to the right when Optimus is approaching Frances McDormand's character on the scaffold.

    Red Truck - Not really sure. Have we seen an commercials featuring a truck like that yet? I'm certain its no Autobot because we would have heard something by now I feel. Maybe a Decepticon? I thought I heard somewhere that a Dodge Charger was being considered for a Decepticon role.

    Blue screens and alien-tech props - Most likely stuff to add rubble to the battle scene in Chicago. Remember, a lot of Decepticon ships and smaller air craft are flying around the city, and its likely that a few of them get shot down. As to the "Megatron's foot" thing, it could be possible, but that does look slightly too large to actually be it.

    Also, remember when we learned of filming regarding an portable office building (commonly seen at construction sites) being tilted? I think we can disregard the assumption that it was 2 Decepticons lifting it to get to Sam. In the trailer, we see Sam and company in a building thats toppling over, and them sliding down in a now angled building. The filming we had seen months ago was most likely for this scene.

    The first image is the
    building/pillars?


    But the image of the Datsun-
    I think it was in Chicago because a building was used as a NEST base and Sam has to go find the Autobots?
    that and the prduction traveled with all the cars from the film so it makes sense they were there. Especially since SPOILERS
    Ironhide and the twins were there

    As for the red truck that was confirmed to be a chevy commercial nothing more

    And the props well who knows. probably the only thing I don't know except for a few names.

    Agreed. The scale seems WAY off but if it's suppose to be Megatron, I can believe it I guess ...

    But DAMN, that's a big foot! :lol
