    Yeah, I'm curious as to what dates there are, as well as what scenes! That way I can decide if I should take off from work and grab a bus down to DC or not.

    It'd be nice to see a combiner uproot the Washington Monument and use it as a club. :D

    There was filming today. I'll have pictures later after my friend gets home and uploads them. They were filming in a building. Some Extras were in military uniform (not NEST); the rest in business suits. Some of the prop bins that were being rolled out after filming completed (at this building), were titled Period Newspapers, Period Cigars, etc. I was told by the crew member who saw me looking at it, that they were filming scenes from two different time periods (Modern and a past time). Only actor I saw on set was Shia (yes, got pics of him, will post later). He was in a suit. Saw no cars.

    The same crew member who saw me looking at the bins said they were filming more at another site later, but I was out of time. :(  He was even nice enough to tell me where, lol.

    I'll be going back later this week, so if see/hear anything, I'll let you guys know.

    EDIT: Went back on Tuesday and got pics of some of the vehicles. So here's a mix of what we got. :)  Hehe, the Kill Shot Markings are of the Passenger side door. I think it had more on the Driver's side too, but we couldn't get a good shot as it was parked right up next to Optimus Prime. Looks like more of my friends are now interested, so hopefully, we will be going back tonight or tomorrow night. If we get any more shots, I'll try to add 'em to this thread.

    I'm so mad I missed this...I could've been a NEST extra if I would've seen a posting via the USAF facebook page sooner. By the time I got the hotline number and called it, all the slots were filled. :(

    Okay, so just read the other piece of news from today and want to cry! I heard the sirens and a big hoopla and told my friends that I thought they were filming the cars elsewhere...

    Chapsy, sooo sorry to hear that! Yeah, when I found out about the DoD Call only thing I could think of was my brother, he would've had so much fun.

    I was in dc and saw some of the filming. Michael Bay, Kevin Dunn, Julie White and Shia were all present at the scene vfnfvne described along with several people in millitary formal wear and secret service looking guys.

    I also went to the filming at the us air force memorial in arlington. The duy told us that they were filming the decepticons meeting there. I waited there for when they started shhoting and they brought the 3 decepticon suburbans with their flashing lights on along with the mad-max rusty looking truck. It didn't seem like the rusty truck was part of the scene but the suburbans definitely were. I got a few pictures of them that i'll try to put up.

    All in all, it was very fun to see some of the filming for the movie. Had such a great experience!

    Damn. I'm kind of pissed at myself for not going up yesterday now. I was going to go up today but not now. I just wish they had this alittle more organized earlier on.

    Notice on the tanker's door, he has kill marks. Definitely makes me think this is a decepticon, either Megs or Shockwave.
