    I think these are all set cars, being the garage/ home of hailey steinfeld.


    The covered car I bet is a transformer not the others

    Covered car looks way too modern to me.

    Also, if this is a set, were is the "set stuff" nothing in these pics shows anything from a set?

    Are you referring to film equipment?

    It does look modern but we don't know if this film will have different time period scenes as the last knight did

    They said this film is set in 1985. So unless they are doing flash forward events (something never done yet) I doubt it. And yeah I mean film equipment l.

    Well my point is they could pull a wonder woman. It takes place during the aftermath of the last knight and either the main character, human, or bumblebee has a flashback about the past. Then we "catch up" at the end for trans6.

    Think about it it's exactly what the shared dc universe did with wonder woman...and TLK seemed to hugely borrow from other shared universes: civil war, suicide squad, kind of Star Wars...they are obviously "borrowing" popular film ideas especially the hero vs hero.

    Now about the film equipment I was on the set during AOE for the train museum scenes. I walked through where all the locomotives were and well literally every shot lol. But I did that about 1-2 hours before cameras rolled and depending on where I was standing/angled there was no visible equipment.

    Well if that's a flashback scene, than they would not say the movie takes place in 1985. And they would not cast a girl as the lead if she's only in flashback scenes ;)

    hmmm... something tells me the red car (cliff jumper) will die in this film, and his shocking death is what will turn bee from a "killing machine" he was back in his day explained by Hopkins to the less willing to fight autobot he is now. if these pics are legit lol

    You're missing my point

    Idk if you saw wonder woman but the first and last scenes take place in the modern time. The entire rest of the film is a flashback of her reminiscing. It is not a "flashback" in the normal sense. This is what I am saying they could do and just have some modern cars around for filming later.

    Wonder Woman was advertised as taking place in ww1 they say everywhere it was a period piece, BUT as soon as the film starts we see she is in the post bvs era.

    It would make sense to call this a period piece/prequel if it is what I am suggesting


    Unless I have misinterpreted what you are saying tony

    Yes, if you haven't seen it then I understand your confusion...

    They seem to be copying the dc films so I wouldn't be shocked if they took WW as inspiration

    It has begun (or has it?)!

    Thank you Pie!

    I too think, that all of these are just "extras" - regular old street cars. Excited to see another film set in the eighties!

    I'm going to take the producers words literally when it comes to this project. Save for the yellow car being bumblebee, I doubt any other cars are transformers.

    For those who are asking if this is from a movie or just some random cars. I clicked and copy/pasted this

    • arun09345It is the first day of July & the Bumblebee Spin-Off *could* be starting its first day of filming today. @Bi0z0_yt has spotted these vehicles in Virginia. @bi0z0_yt has said that a director's chair has been put on the set with a Paramount logo & that these vehicles were shipped by trucks. People aren't allowed near the film set anymore. However, the thing that interests me the most out of this set is that there is a not-so-modern yellow & red vehicle there & they are placed next to a garage, which reminds me that Hailee's character would be a mechanic & also said that the film is said to be set in 1985. What do you guys think? #transformers#bumblebeemovie #bumblebee

    The red car is Cliffjumper and the yellow car is Bumblebee. Or perhaps the movies will stick to form and make them any colour they choose. Come on guys. Since when have vehicle model and make had any comparison to G1?

    And as I said on IG, these cars, none of them have tinted windows that TFs would have. These are either non TFs cars or this isn't even a set.
