Images from the Detroit Set of Transformers 3 is overloading the internet. Canít even figure out where to start.

Again Actor Tyrese Gibson updated his Twitter Page with an image. This time itís him with his Stunt Double wearing the new NEST Uniform we saw a while back.

Speaking of ďa while backĒÖ exactly two months ago we brought you a news of the Autobots in storage prior to being used on screen. There was also an update showing a Black and Orange car. Now however, thanks to Shadow of S4TE we have a close-up of the said car. That particular car is a Chevrolet Impala (Yep, the same Make & Model as the NASCAR Wreckers) The Black and Orange car was previously seen on the Gary, Indiana Set of TF3. The same album got some photos of a Chevrolet Chevelle SS. Itís too sweet of be blown to bits by an explosion. This same car was also seen at the Chicago Transformers 3 Set. Checkout the album here.

Unicron.Com recently took a visit to the set of Transformers 3. As TFW2005 Board Member ARIQ told us, Optimus Prime, The NASCAR Wreckers, Ferrari 458 Italia and Ratchet are all there. You can enjoy that album here.

Shadesalpha of TFW2005 also shared some Images with us. Click on the Title Bar to see them.

Let's see who's saying "Astrotrain FTW!" first?
Brooticus
Wait, what? That's certainly an autobot trailer, but the cab doesn't feature the regular movie prime color scheme. In fact, it looks to be a different cab altogether. How far should i read into this? Hmmm....
Omnius
Bombardier Jet Train?

Well Omnius, this is a whole new kind of a JetTrain. A one with actual Jet Engines...
Oracle_Aesir
They did say that Hasbro wanted Triple Changers in the third movie, so maybe the jet-train thing is Astrotrain?

It's probably just being used to move it.
Ultrawave
If that armored truck isn't Payload, giant grabber claw shaft sticking out his back and all, I will be disappointed.
Fort Max
I'd take a new version of payload redesigned to have the stick out shaft fold out.
I really would like a new one actually, really liked the design but it was horribly flawed and mine fell apart too.
Swoop Dogg
Please be Astrotrain! Please!

^Yeah, hope its the triple-changer too!
We need more Con's dammit!

I'd be up for some 3 way lovvin, too!

However, i'd bet the movie definition of triple changer will be Robot/Earth Vehicle/Earth vehicle with Robot Bits sticking out.

Still, if it looks awsome (the Wreckers certainly do) then i'm all up for it.
Dustinticon
Maybe it's Rodimus's trailer.... A little red Ferrari can hold it right ?
MekaGojira3k
I love the bank vehicle? thing with the Decepticon logo. Of course! They ruined the economy! XD
ReaprPrime28
I believe I'm gonna do my "Told you so" dance now.lol.
angelus2402004
If Astrotrain is in the movie I would be very pleased. Maybe blitzwing will make an appearance too?

What was it you told us that has now been confirmed?

so exactly when is the washington d.c. filming taking place.

I just got home from the Detroit Packard Plant. I wasn't able to see too much of the set. Security wouldn't allow me to stand around or take pics but I was able to get some pics of Prime, the Decepticon SUVs, as well as the Decpticon armored truck.

As I pointed out in the original thread, and I think it's pretty interesting...

.... The Decepticon Suburbans have DIFFERENT license plates. Which means one of three things (IMO)....

1.) Different characters, copies of one another, like drones with earth modes.

2.) "Arcee" IDEA part deux: Different vehicles, one character mind, ONE character. (my money is on Soundwave)

3.) Directing Fail. Same character for each vehicle, each used for a different stunt, with the risk of continuity errors.

Very very interesting.....

Currently scheduled for the week of 10/4.

The SUVs had U.S. Government license plates. A security guard from a local business stated, I couldn't take pictures of them because of they were "government vehicles." I corrected him stating that they were movie props. But he insisted I stop taking pics.

I KNEW THERE WAS A VALID REASON BEHIND HATING THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
Shipley
I have high hopes that this third movie will be better than the second, and the inclusion of Astro Train would go a long way toward that.

Photo Law – Your Right to Take Pictures in Public Legal Andrew

As long as you weren't trespassing, you are within your rights to photograph anything in public. Military Bases and Nuclear Power Plants are a couple of the exceptions, but really you'd have to be trespassing to get a photo of anything but the front gate of either.
shadesalpha
Shipley - I was in a fenced in parking lot of what I think was a food-bank. Being that it was fenced in, I asked permission to be on the property to take pictures through their fence. But once I started to take pics of the SUVs the guard didn't want to take a chance of getting into trouble.
figsdad
But how much CGI would astro Train need to transform and the money and to think this would be ready for next summer i highly doubt it be ready for summer maybe summer 2012.

I had the world largest fangasm when I saw the word train in this news.

When did they say this? The last thing I remember them saying about triple changers was that they weren't doing them in the films.

Will be interesting to see if they try, though.

Wasnt Megatron a triple changer in ROTF? He had a Jet/Tank mode

I cant remember where, but I do remember that a reason why Soundwave was given a "third mode" in the ROTF toyline was because Hasbro wanted tehre to be Triple Changers in TF3, and that was a way to ease the concept into that continuity

PS I wrote "third mode" in quota marks because it's not very different to the other mode anyway
Emperor Zarak
Would prefer Blitwing but I love Astrotrain too so here's hoping.

This movie already looks deep...

I never said it was confirmed,but when it was first reported that they were filming at the space coast place,2 things went through my head.first,they need decepticons seeing as how the autobots outnumbered them so far in the news like 8 to 2.secondly,what would be the best decepticon that has to do with space and would be a big help to megatron.

Those thoughts went through my head,and now that people are seeing what appears to be a train on the set,who on the decepticons side is a train?I never said it was confirmed,but its looking really good.

Plates on the chevelle start with NB also known as Non-biological as Simmons called megatron- NBE1. No E but I doubt its a coincidence

Stunticon?

Could the black and red car be dead end (ie the deluxe dead end from the rotf line) just in a different car mode?

isn't that the clock building in that one picture from the back to the future movies?

Yeah, but his was still a cybertronain tripple changer, so it was a lot easier to get around the design then figureing out how to get one earth vehicle to shift to another earth vehicle, and a robot.

In CGI, it's probably possible, cause you could cheat a lot. The problem, I would think, comes up when you try and do that in toy form.
sideswipe89
I think we all might be jumping the gun with this astro train thing...I don't think people should be getting their hopes up. I wonder what it is though, the first thing that came to my mind was a ship for the autobots or the decepticons. There have been small rumors that the autobots are getting a ship. But idk...we have to wait for more info.

And That chevy Impala just screams dead end. I really wish they would use him. But I have a feeling its not gonna happen
shadesalpha
I went back to Packard Plant and Michigan Central Station. I didn't see as much security as yesterday. Nor, did it appear much was going on at either place. The extra's lot was empty. The few security guards that were there kept asking me what I was doing and someone drove by me with my son and took pictures of us then drove off before I could say anything.

But here are some more pics.

Yesterday, we spotted this Mercedes-Benz 722 on the lot. They had it street side with guards around it so I couldn't really get a great shot.


Here's a better look of the Decepticon emblem on the Suburban


The mysterious Impala


I don't know if this means anything there were 2 of these trucks




MBSHOOT
I'm guessing the NB on the license plate of the Chevelle stands for Non-Biological.
