    HI guys its Jimmy from Chicago, huge day today. I went down to the Lasalle Street set this morning with my dad at 7:00am and Im telling you it looks like a war zone. They were heavy on no picture thing but if you were careful you got some pics. I got to see Prime with a new trailer and the rest of the bots(although I did not come across Ironhide and the Twins), some news guys including a new blue Mercedes, the red Ferrari, and these 3 nascar looking vehicles built for battle, they looked like they were in the process of transforming. We were in this group of people right off Lasalle behind a guard rail and after following Prime we found all the Autobots parked. Between takes they had this 5 minute window to let people go up the cars and take pics with them, I got within an inch from Prime, Sideswipe, and the red Ferrari I give them huge credit for doing that. Other than that I even found by the production trucks the racks with all the swat nest gear that said "Epps Team," I took a lot of photos and film and I know no one wants to see me with Prime and Sideswipe so here is just a little taste from this morning, ENJOY DUDES:)

    Holy crap, I wonder if those Nascar-looking vehicles may be... dare I say it... Stunticons?

    And Prime does have a trailer?! I sure hope that they'll explain how he ended up with a trailer, and where it goes when he's not in truck mode, otherwise it just feels so weird that he just happens to show up with a trailer after having gone without one in the previous movies.

    Damn, Prime looks so cool with his trailer.
    I wonder who the blue car is? Can't be Jolt, unless he reformatted.

    I'm wondering who it is too.

    Great pictures! The Nascar car and the other race car look cool too! I think this scene will be awesome!

    The OP stated it was a blue Mercedes, so I doubt that's Jolt. It would be weird for Jolt to go from a Chevy Volt to a Mercedes.

    Maybe the Mercedes is a TF by name of Wheeljack, and the red Ferrari is Hot Rod? Just a pure speculative idea.

    Can this be merged with the other thread? Those rally cars are obviously Decepticons.

    I wonder if these two are part-transformed. Because they kinda look like promo for the sort of thing Hasbro are doing with their new 'Stealth force' line.

    These:

    I didn't realize Ratchet was in the background of the one pic!

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    The story goes that Hasbro developed the stealth force thing as a side line but Bay was shown them and liked them so much he wanted to use the concept in the movie and it looks like he did.

    They look pretty cool I think, I wonder if the weapons actually deploy mechanically like the 'real' bond cars that get built for the flicks.

    The trailer looks really nice too, I guess we can strike Ultra Magnus off the rumour list now though. :lol

    And where does this story come from? Because vehicle-mounted weapons were planned as far back as a cut scene from the first movie, where Barricade sprouted machineguns and missile launchers in pursuit of Sam and Bumblebee.

    They're like Bond cars turned up to 11.

    I wasn't a big fan of the Stealth force idea, but I might actually get some now for the ones that are in the movie.

    I originally thought they looked like bots that had transformed and got stuck half-way, but seeing what they've done here, there's a lot of obvious potential for action and chase-scenes.

    I think I found it. I think the purple car is a modified new Camry. Look at this and share opinions. It's the closest thing I've found yet.

    If that's what it is, it would go with my initial reaction of Lexus. The fender vent thing reminds me of the IS that came out a while back.

    Does anyone have any more pics of this car?

    Its a Mercedes, I think C class. You can see the Mercedes hood ornament if you look closely
