Transformers 4 Set Images And Information From Detroit

2005 Boards Member tonyformer is bringing us some cool info and images from the Transformers 4 Set in Detroit.

According to our member, Detroit is not actually Detroit in the movie; it will be standing-in for China itself. Clearly, it can be seen thanks to the images provided, which clearly identify buildings with Chinese architectural influence.

But the "biggest" revelation (pun intended) comes from the info our member is providing us. Let us take a look at it from his own words:

"I was told that the set will indeed sub as "Somewhere" in China. She did not or would not give me an exact city name. She did however say that the set will be comprised of around 6 to 7 standing structures that will be of an older Chinese design and around 4 or 5 destroyed buildings that will have crushed in walls and so on. There will be piles of debris and this set will be part of a "Major" battle scene.

I asked her if she could elaborate any and was told that there would be "many" Transformers "good and bad" involved as well as humans fighting. She also said that there would be a few particularly "larger" Transformers that will crash through buildings while fighting each other.

I asked her if that meant like large human looking Transformers or more animal looking and she said, "All I can say it maybe both" with a smile.

So with that being asked, I asked her if she could tell me anything else and all she would tell me is this movie will blow all the others out of the water and will be darker than the last. And then said this particular set will be filmed on in July."


This description may very well be a confirmation of a certain rumor we've heard before. Check out more info and images at the thread associated with this news post.

Very interesting "many transformers good and bad" could this mean there are still more autobots we don't know of

I think we might get a dozen of Autobot drones fighting alongside Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hound, and the four autobots to be name , as for the Decpticons most likely a few hundred Drones and maybe five to seven named Decpticons.

I for one would love to see red shirt Autobots this time around. I'd love to see a few named bots leading their own groups of other non named bots.

Have I forgotten how easily we got information for the last three films or is all this info on characters coming surprisingly fast and with little effort to get it?
TheBigBad
If ever there were a synergistic reason to use dinosaurs, it would be to fight dragons. Maybe Hasbro is looking to repurpose some of their Beast Hunter stuff.
SpicyRichter
It has finally come full circle. China is outsourcing back to the US! Only a matter of time
EnerJohn
Nice! I just hope there are no more large transformers like the driller from DOTM. It was cool, but I'd rather see that money spent on transformations and other robots.
Macross7
Menasor vs Superion.

It was definitely not this easy.
EpicTransformer
Damn! Darker than the last 3?? Dotm was pretty dark...well the last half of the movie. I'm getting more and more excited. By the sounds of the news so far.. it seems like the transformers will have a bit more of a story than the humans even though they're a new cast. idk.. but I can't wait!!!
AKSpartan1661
Dinobots are cool and all, but I am getting pretty tired of them being in everything right now. I realize I'm being hypocritical, but I would love more Bruticus! (and Defensor, and all the other Scramble City Guys!)
SuperSeeker
"Darker". I don't like that word, since it's been tossed around Hollywood rather a lot lately and has meant to be nothing more than an exaggerated marketing ploy.

Ignoring this part, I'm no doubt excited by the potential in this particular scene by the information we've been given. Thanks tonyformer for the extra insight.

Then I'm starting to think this is all part of another disinformation campaign. Unless, after so many leeks throughout the first trilogy, they've just given up.

Making a fake China instead of going to China...

Leave it to Hasbro to influence even the movie filming xD

In ROTF they made a fake China (the opening of ROTF) and a fake Egypt. All the action scenes were done on a set here in the U.S. so how is any different?
Fort Max
Really cool to see a set under construction like that, there must be a staggering amount of work involved.

Actually first thoughts I had of this was the warehouse with Grimlock inside and Optimus riding on its back - they burst through the warehouse and pose as the warehouse explodes behind them...



But we all secretly know this film is going to suck...

That would be cool
Ethereal
Wow. Before I was transferred to another location, I lived right in those apartments behind the construction. I would have looked directly down on the scene where my apartment was as well. That would have been neat.
QLRformer
That could possibly confirm the plot details about Dinobots possibly appearing.

Cool stuff anyway. We all know the action will be explosive.

Yeah man with the first three movie the Autobots were heavily outnumber and out gunned expect for the first movie, and yet came out on top and suffer minimal casualties. Michael Bay stated that this movie will be even darker then DOTM well I feel its time to make the Decpticons even more deadlier to the Autobots, having Autobot Drones gives them that option.

It would be nice but we will have to wait and see I guess.

I don't know how a movie could blow DOTM out of the water in terms of action, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. The TF movies keep getting better action wise by each movie anyway so it could still be true. I think the rumor about the Dinobots fighting in China is real.

So do I. And I think she was referring to that when she said some particularly larger TFs would be fighting each other. My first thought was dinobots vs a Con combiner.
MV95
Something to think about: If the Dinobots are truly Dinobots (not vehicles turning into Dinos) then we will never see them on set. If anything it'll just be their faces on poles.

Or we see OP, Bee and other Autobots come riding in on them lol.

Also, just thought of something. They are obviously filming in the states to be in the U.S in the film. But how would all the Bots and human characters get to China? In ROTF hey flew by way of NEST. But I dont see them going that route again. What if this secrete human faction or dare I say a still unseen Ratchet in a new Bot Base has used the damaged space bridge tech and created ground bridge tech like in the cartoon? Lol

If they have a ground bridge, my expression:

I guess if the dinobots are in the movie and they're not a vehicle they will never show up on set. I hope ratchet comes back in some fashion
