    Hopefully a fellow forum member who lives close by can drop by and see if they can see any new vehicles.

    Someone on the boards that lives near there needs to camp with a camera and get pictures of the vehicles :)

    Hmmmm wasn't there a robot fight in an industrial type setting in the first 2 movies? Stretch your wings Michael, how about a fight in an open area where you can pull out for a long shot every now and again, preferably without huge sand cannons going off every 5 seconds or trees flying everywhere.

    Also, yes, i sure as poop hope we get a fan at the site to get some vehicle intel.

    On the up side, maybe this will drum up some economic type stimulus for Gary, the place really needs it :(

    Couple this with Bethlehem Steel in ROTF, it seems there's a trend of using the dilapidated ruins of the destruction of American industry as cheap stand-ins for 3rd World settings in vapid action movies.

    Or, in other words...

    "Michael Moore's loss is Michael Bay's gain!"

    Why spend extra to fly equipment and a crew of 60 overseas when there's a suitable stand-in domestically? Given that the article suggets the crew will be staying at the Majestic Star Casino hotel, they likely also save money there as well. Those are usually cheap, as they want you to save money so that you can go gamble.

    I'll gladly take domestic locations as stand-ins if that means the budget can go elsewhere.

    About 10 min away from me! not that it is a good thing. Gary was the murder capitol of the US a few times. Gary also is only about 35 min away from Chicago too.

    I will try to get some pictures.
