Posted by:Perceptor at 2010-09-10 2:15 pm (site update)
Yesterday, we had the great pleasure to visit the set of Transformers 3, in a less than posh neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan. Complete gallery HERE Highlights include:
* A NEW DECEPTICON! (Could this be Payload?) -No one on set could tell us! -I honestly think some of the kind crewmen we talked to would have told us. But they didn't know. My guess: Swindle!
* Ratchet and the sweet red Ferarri.
* We saw all 3 WRECKERS. Although the blue one was covered most of the time while we were taking photos.) --But they were all there.
* Bumblebee and Sideswipe where there too, though we couldn't get a good photo of them, as they were parked behind Optimus.
* On-set fire, probably going on during filming of a scene we couldn't see.
We did get to watch a scene being filmed outside of Packard Motel. A group of men, army types acting fired up in a big black GMC pickup (not Ironhide). They shot a scene with the men jumping around the truck. Then set-up camera angles, to shoot a scene where Sam Witwicky and Sgt. Epps were driving in a old, blue ~1960's something car. Tyrese waved to the camera as they drove down the street.
My 5 year old son, proudly wearing his Bumblebee shirt said to me, "They were waving to me because they like my new Bumblebee shirt!"
GREAT fun! A once in a lifetime kick. Special thanks to Will Shin for the navigation and photography help!
