Nelson; Site Admin of Shoot For The Edit (Michael Bay's Official Website) recently took a visit to the Chicago set of Transformers 3.

He then kindly compiled a detailed description of what he saw and heard.

Among many things he said, he confirmed Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's role as Carly.

Nelson also uploaded some images from the set for us to enjoy.

Update : Nelson has changed the caption underneath the Ferrari 458 Italia Autobot. It now reads... "Ferrari 458 Italia (Parked on Rush St) on the set of Transformers 3 in Chicago, Il, originally uploaded by Nelson Lauren for Michael Bay Dot Com." So, the name is still open for the debate.

You can click read on take a look at the images and to read the entire report. Mind you, the report and the images may contain spoilers.

It is our great pleasure to break the news for all of you to enjoy. Tell us what you think, by hitting the Discuss Button.

"Nelson here...

I arrived at the Chicago Michigan Ave. set on Friday, July 16th. I was greeted by Mike Case (Bay's assistant) and was taken to Bay's monitor tent which was in the middle of a war zone. Michael greeted and proceeded to ask some things about the site. He then took out his iPad and showed me animatics of some sequences. Holy moly. This movie is going to be huge!!! In my opinion, more epic than TF2 with the first time amazement of TF1. I wish I could tell you what I saw on the animatics, but I can't.

Bay was filming a scene with Shia (Sam) & Rosie (Carly) in which they were hiding within a wrecked and flipped car. At around that time the temperature hit 102 degrees (including humidity index). It was so hot that Shia was sweating through his leather jacket and as was Rosie. Back to the scene... apparently the scene is one in which a Decepticon is hunting for them. As Bay filmed this, a cue from the score was played to add to the suspense.

As the crew broke for lunch, I met Lester Speight (Coltrane on Gears of War) and went on to lunch with him. He was very nice and delightful.

Later, I got to meet the rest of the cast: Shia, Rosie, Tyrese, and Josh.

I had the pleasure of talking to Shia for for about 30 minutes and with Tyrese and Josh for another 30 minutes. All these guys have an impressionable work ethic, are fun to talk to and down-to-earth people. And that goes for the rest of the crew. I many many nice and professional people that are working their hardest to make this movie successful and entertaining.

As the day came about, Bay, Shia, Tyrese & Josh all came to meet than fans that had been waiting since 7am to catch a glimpse down the street. They also were interviewed by CBS 2 TV in which Bay praised the city of Chicago.

As always, Bay left the best for last. Explosions and gunfire!!

That's it for now. I will post a video of some of the activities later.

Enjoy."

Sorry mate. My bad. "Autobot" placed on the wrong place. Corrected. Thanks for pointing it out for me.
DrLee
Sorry..... but where do they name the Ferrari?
MACRAPTRON
I got it. The blue Mercedes is Megaman/Rockman, and the Ferrari is his mecha-dog.
Sprocket
I'm not...seeing a name anywhere.

o_O really?

That... actually makes things worse....

I wonder how this will go down with Capcom? You know TF3 will end up with a Game and toys, Both of which already involve a little red robot dog/jet/coil/sub. Maybe they'll have some more autobots named flip-top, beat, auto, roll, eddie, tango, etc....

For the name of the Ferrari Autobot look at the caption underneath the front paged photo at SFTE.
RipCurl
edit : nvm i see it.
what a crappy name , although I did name one of my characters in WFC Zoom , So who am I to diss. I would have prefered Hot Rod though
Toa Shockimus
Rush? Not only will that probably sit well with Capcom, I doubt the band will appreciate it much either.
squawkbox74
Well that's... disappointing...
Shizuka
Dude...
RipCurl
Cmon people , use spoiler tags. Some people may not want to see the name of the autobot .
Robticon
As far as I can tell, the new autobot's Name, Rush, has only been used in Transformers Fiction as the name of an episode. It's possible that the name and character are an homage to Rodimus/Hot Rod. Or Hot Shot. Or someone red and stylin'.

....Or it could be a G1 Sideswipe homage.
Cujo
wait would he be the movie universe Rapido?!?!?!?!?

then why are u reading and looking? if youre this far in then thats your fault.

also for those who can not see the caption for the name:

"Ferrari 458 Italia (Rush) on the set of Transformers 3 in Chicago, Il, originally uploaded by Nelson Lauren for Michael Bay Dot Com."
Radioactive Ravage
Original characters? Good.
G1Jetfire
To me, the Ferrari is Wheeljack. Hopefully that cardboard cutout we saw in an earlier post wasn't this character's head. If it is, this movie news is disheartening. I want to see what Shockwave looks like.
Scatt0rSh0t
Rush? From Rush Hour 3? Awesome!!!!!!!!
Yaujta
It's just a Fly By Night Name.

Sorry. Had to.

What's the big deal? So what, it's a new character. If it ended up as Hot Rod, the endless line of people bitching about it not looking like the namesake would be horrible.
xXThePrimesXx
I'm actually kind of happy to get a completely new character.
maximus_primal
Blurr was to fast for the cameras so they got his slower never heard of brother Rush. HA HA HA I know bad joke.
Hiraga
I'm not really buying that that's it's name. It just sounds...off to me. If it is the Ferrari's name, then I'll admit that yeah, that's actually pretty stupid IMO.
I mean, wasn't Wheelie originally 'Wheels'?
Nerdicon
Must we always have old characters or obscure names of characters from 1 page of a crappy issue of the old comic? Rush could be the Mace Windu here you never know.
AlphaOmegaBlurr
Hahaha, I think I just died a little inside. =/
megatronski
Whats with all the capcom nonsense? i didnt know you could trademark such a used word like Rush.
and they are most likely gonna put 'autobot' before it anyway.

i also find it funny everyone thought this was hot rod.

Ah.... you may wanna put that in the front page blurb on here... it was very confusing to read the name was announced, yet not see it anywhere in the story...
eagc7
so he is Hot rod. No Big deal. Thats Why Im always Waiting for an actual COnfirmation instead of specualting lol
october
that sucks. i hope it is misinformation. i've been wanting to see hot rod since the first one. if this is true, i hope it's just a name change due to hasbro, and he takes the personalty of hot rod
Lone_Decepticon
I would have preferred Blurr over Rush anyday.
HIM666fan
dont get why noone likes RUSH it sounds like a good name to me and fits the type of car...people...people are justnever happy.
SKowl
Yay, another classic character gets its place among the movie's all-star cast, taking his place among other such TF legends as Mudflap, Jolt, Grindor, Scalpel/The Doctor, & Sideways.

I can't wait for the movie version of Erector & Drillnuts.
TRANS+CRAZY
What kind of a name is Rush for an Autobot? I was kinda half-hoping it was going to be Hot Rod. :/
fallen_revenge
look first where excited with prime trailer and the 3 nascars then we get dissapointed with the wierd einstein robot then we get excited with shockwaves head now we get dissapointed with the red italia ferrari being rush whats next?
Bumblethumper
If they want to create a new character, Overdrive was a pretty good name. G1 Ferrari, barely used in any fiction, so essentially a blank slate.
Hiraga
Also, do you really think they would go right ahead and passively announce one of the characters names in a article on Shoot For Edit, a largely unknown site?

Already done Doc Thanks!
PrimePower04
damn....I really wanna see hot rod
gothsaurus
I'm actually really glad for the new name "Rush." I'm tired of Bay changing the colors, personalities, faces, voices of established characters... ah yeah, and killing them after a couple spoken lines.

If it's going to be a vast deviation from the robots we've grown to know and love... I vote for a new name/character. Thumbs up here.

SFTE is Michael Bay's Official Website. And It's front paged.
HighCaptSpock
If that is indeed his real name, it is disappointing that it's not a first-tier character. However, if he turns out to not be a major character in the film (i.e. has about as much screen time as Jolt), it's better that they not waste a first-tier name on him. Though, given how much they are advertising the Ferrari, he will probably have plenty of screen time.

Only time will tell.
misternewuzer
Ok, is it just me, or does Epps have more tattoos than in previous movies, and furthermore, they are CYBERTRONIAN GLYPHS?

First movie



TF3




I'm actually really ok with this
