Thanks to 2005 Board Member 245am and Jimmy88, we have the possible confirmation regarding the Trailer of Optimus Prime in Transformers 3 as we posted few moments ago.

Jimmy88 not only managed to take some good photos of a Chicago Filming, but 245am also recorded a video from the filming scene.

The images confirm the return of "The Twins"; Skids and Mudflap in a very modified manner (Just like we've seen in the pictures earlier).

Also, Ironhide is slightly modified here and there.

The video will feature Optimus Prime, Ratchet, Bumblebee, The Red Ferrari, Convertible Sideswipe and a new mysterious purple vehicle.

You can enjoy the video below and click on the Title Bar to take a look at Optimus with his Trailer, The "New" Twins and the "Modified" Ironhide.

Update 1: Possible images of some Decepticons / Stunticons. Whatever they are, they're NASCAR style vehicles armed to the teeth!

Update 2: Some more photos added. Action sequences.


Don't forget to read 245am's detailed report about the filmed scene on our 2005 Boards.

Full size trailer???? That's going to be the mother of all toys.
245am
Am I crazy? Did OP not have a trailer in any movie scenes before?

I didn't get a photo of the derby cars, my girlfriend got a quick video that she's sending me now and I'll post in a sec. Definitely got a photo of the trailer- it's enclosed with a G1-ish silver swipe down the side (like the original red)

He has not had a trailer at all.

Sweet! I thought when I saw it that he didn't have a trailer ever before, but couldn't remember if it popped up in any of those helicopter shots of them driving down some road...

Interesting that it's enclosed with all that talk about the headache rack usually going with a flatbed...

I love, LOVE the G1-swoosh down the side. Very movie aesthetic of homaging G1 while keeping it modern. Maybe the red would have been too much, but that swipe is unmistakeably G1 inspired
eyeballkid
That is a HUGE fucking trailer!
245am
Less exciting, but here are the twins and ironhide

I took those photos myself, and believe it or not, I just sort of walked through. My GF lives around the block, and I walked around the area this morning... They were telling people to go around, but I said I was just cutting through to go to class (her school is right there). I didn't have my camera out so I probably looked like anybody else trying to get into a building. The photos are crappy cause they're just cell phone pics I shot really quickly...

My first thought when I saw them: Stunticons, but that's total conjecture.
Stunticons were the first thing that came to my mind as well. Great shot of that trailer.

Dude, you already got the money shot of the day. You rule! This thread will explode, trust me. BTW, you should submit this as news, because it is.

Cars in the Autobot lineup: Bumblebee, the red Ferrari, Ratchet, Sideswipe with the roof down, Optimus prime and a purplish-blue sports car with black tires that I didn't recognize. My first thought was that it looked exactly like Shockwave's Alternators Alt-mode... I wonder if part of the plot is that he infiltrates the Autobots...
That chase scene sounds cool! Sounds like almost all of the Autobots, that we know are in the movie, are going to be in it.
Lone_Decepticon
awesome pic of the trailer! very G1!
MTME
NICE!!! and damn the twins ARE back. See we can't trust Bay
eyeballkid
I'll bet this is the opening scene, and the twins die.

Do you mean Jolt?

Edit - Seen a pic in the other thread, that ain't Jolt unless he's changed vehicle.
Roadtrack
this is really exciting news. And Ratchet is among the main Autobots is just great. I look forward to this scene.

You got your news front paged after all!

OP with his trailer is instant win in my book. Can't wait to see if they work it into a toy.
Astrotrain85
This chase scene sounds cool.
NeilD83
can't really spot the minor changes in Ironhide and
hmmm.....Jolt is purple? if it is true, i would rather see him blue, but i guess changing his color is the only way to market more toys, as well as the other new repaints and/or new molds of the Autobots
MenasorMaster
the stunticons as demolition derby cars ?? I would rather see them as tuned high end supercars.
MaxLinden
YESSS, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
OPTIMUS PRIME AT LAST HAS HIS TRAILER IN TF3 AND IT LOOKS SOOO G1ISH...... NERDGASMING TOOO DEATH OVER HERE!

Yep! pumped!

My GF and I are arguing over the first three derby cars... she swears they are filming cars, but I think they were too clean, too logo'd up and too loud to be "outside" of the shot... my money's on stunticons that the autobots are chasing and Shockwave's incognito as a 'bot...

That Ferrari and convertible Sideswipe are niiiiiice, too!
fallen_revenge
can you send me a link to the pic plaes!!!!! im desperate this is awesome news..
Nightrain
That trailer is AWESOME.

Cameramen also don't drive around in chopped up chassis full of machine guns. Even in a Michael Bay shoot.

Anyway. All of this just looks fantasticly awesome.
MenasorMaster
maybe they arent the stunticons. i believe they are maybe the omnibots.
how many derby cars were seen ??
SilverOptimus


Lockdown or Axor? You vote...

Nascar transformer??? No wonder Jimmy Johnson keeps winning all these years, he's a Machine

MenasorMaster
OH SHIT. That car rocks, i imagined very ugly derby cars, but this one is just... wow.
SoundFire Prime
So, Prime finally gets his iconic trailer, huh? And thus, the fandom rejoiced!
Smokescreen
Prime's trailer looks I hope it transforms into a mobile base or something.

This made me squee. And wet myself.

Shizuka
I hope that is Lockdown.

245am
Here's one more photo of Ironhide... don't see anything too different, but, hey...



As for the gunned nascar car, there were definitely multiple of these... three I believe, so whatever/whoever it is, it's a group, and they are LOUD!
