    Hey dudes, Jimmy here from Chicago. Went down to Lakeshore East this morning and aside from having a few of the cars on display for what the production was calling 'VIPs'(not open to the public) it was pretty dead today. There were signs saying that businesses to remain open during TF4 filming but there was nothing around, no production trucks, nothing, perhaps they are filming tonight and mostly tomorrow, or they are filming elsewhere....not sure where but there was definitely no action today. Maybe they are still at McCormick Place, maybe somewhere else entirely, to me it seemed like a diversion from the actual filming location.....I guess we shall see what happens:) 

    Good luck dudes:)

    A friend who is in Chicago on holiday says they were filming with helicopters.... Somewhere in the city. Something about having them fly in low over a street...

    EDIT... Just read her comment again, seems that was on the Chicago loop, so it may have been for the show 'Chicago Fire'

    Just drove by Mccormick place 10 mins ago. Police in front said they were filming there yesterday and today. Also a helicopter was flying around my room at Sheraton Towers Hotel around 11:30am today for a short moment to get some footage.

    Anyway, a lot of filming going on today is closed sets so thats a good reason why we havent seen much. I know Kelsy Grammer is on set as we speak.

    Hello all,
    I haven't posted here since T3 ... here's what I got:

    Saturday afternoon, I walked over to Randolph Street just as the Gray Lamborghini, Green Corvette and Yellow Camaro were driving away from the set. As they were parked for a moment, the lead guy in the Lambo throttled his engine. :)  I even got a quick glimpse of Mark Wahlberg being driven away in a black SUV. They were also doing helicopter camera shots around town yesterday evening.

    Plus, it looks like Michael Bay and the T4 crew are utilizing Lower Wacker again (just like for T3) for their equipment and vehicle storage as I got back over there just in time to see them loading the Lambo into one of those trailers.

    Then today, I walked back over to Randolph and along with the Lambo, Corvette and Camaro, I saw the Blue Bugatti. They were all parked together behind velvet ropes for "public" viewing. It appeared there was going to be explosions on Randolph Street at some point because they had 4 big metal tubes set up. I didn't stay to watch though.

    Also, I found Optimus and Hound on Lower Wacker ... they're HUGE! :)  I noticed Hound has a logo on the drivers side of a sexy woman sitting on a bomb in front of a star, and underneath it said "Oh Daddy!" It's very WWII/B-52 logo-like. I have pics of everything but I don't have the ability to upload them now. Besides, I'm sure there's way better spy pics to come online since I noticed SEVERAL people with nice cameras hanging about.

    Yeah, that's why I put "public" in quotes. Sure, you had to be a VIP to get close up, but you could easily see them off to the side from about 35-40 feet away. ;) 

    Here are today's pics:

    BTW, the last 2 pics show the street where I think those 4 tubes were probably used for explosions.
