Transformers 4 Sets in Detroit - Almost Go Time

Thanks to a couple of websites, we have some on the set shots of Transformers 4 filming in Detroit. Looks like a beat up Chinatown or Hong Kong. There are subway cars on set marked with Chicago Transit, so this may be a scene which takes place in a now devastated area of Chicago (please see Dark of the Moon for why that is).

Check them all out above, a couple shots of interest after the break.

Wow, they actually went to Detroit?

Wouldn't it have been safer to build Detroit in China?

It's amazing how much time and dedication is put in here, only to get destroyed for our amusement.

I mentioned a while back that production would continue in many other Michigan locations. It seems those locations have now all been revealed.

'Transformers 4' will begin filming downtown next week | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

I have just one thing to say about that Hong Kong set.

i started to post this as news as i saw it about an hour ago.... i should have....

It was brought to my attention that the train car will be in another scene that will be shot on Woodward Ave where it will be tumbling down the street. It may be pushed or thrown maybe.

Well, can't wait. With DOTM there was so much filming on youtube. But so far with TF4 we're not getting much, driving me a little nuts. I love seeing all that stuff...gotta know whats going on.
tonyformer
Most of the good video will come when they film in the city areas. It hard for them to keep everyone from getting video.

We have drivers coming in from one of our facilities near there so that product isn't being loaded while filming is going on and stuff is blowing up.....

That looks pretty cool. Amazing what they can do with some plywood and paint. As for Detroit. At this point they need all the influx of revenue they can get with them filing bankruptcy.

So I am guessing part of this set is going to be China Town in Chicago???
Weremole
Or Detroit as stand-in for Hong Kong during action shoots or some combination of the two. Who knows just yet.

I'm really curious if the enormous circular foam thing will be part of a building or something else.

here's an all around view of the set
