Day 3 Cast Info and New Transformers Vehicles

A source for, "Chaingun" says he spoke with a guy on set and learned some information about what is being shot for Day 3 and 4 at Bethlehem Steel. He also reviewed the possible new vehicles for the Transformers in the film.

The main points:
- Wednesday, June 4th, Megan Fox is supposed to be on site for a stair chase sequence with Tyrese near a blast furnace.
- Shia Labeouf should be on site Thursday for scenes. (However, Wednesday night is scheduled as the last day)
- "A good chunk of the movie is taking place here." Not sure if "here" means Bethlehem or Pennsylvania but either way a 4 day shoot isn't enough to do more then one major action sequence.
- New vehicles seen were an Acura NSX, a grey and black Audi RS6.
- Also an old ice cream truck is actually two twin Autobots. (img source)

This might explain the various rumors that the entire core cast was supposed to be at Bethelem Steel. Some of the information may not be true but really you simply never know thanks to all the secrecy around the film.


  1. The NSX screams Mirage, idk about the RS6s though, could be the Autobot Brothers Sideswipe and Sunstreaker but why only be black and grey i have no idea.

    Err... I think he meant a RS6 that was both black and grey.

    Also an old ice cream truck is actually two twin Autobots.

    *Twitches* If that ice cream truck is supposed to be Sunstreaker and Sideswipe, I. Will. Implode.

    Unless of course, it's a robot that functions something like Reflector...

  3. I too, hope that the Ice Cream truck (LOL!!! I was thinking back to Eddie Murphy's, 'I got some ice cream. . .and you can't have none. . .want a lick?PSCYHE!!!!' routine, LOL!!!!)IS NOT Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. Maybe it's Runamuck and Runabout?

    As far as the Acura NSX, I'm willing to bet that it's either Hot Rod/Rodimus or Sideswipe as Cliffjumper (according to the movie toys) would be basically a red repaint of Bumblebee. Can't wait to find out.

  4. Runamuck and Runabout wouldn't make any sense if the twin robots are Autobots, would it? Unless the information is wrong. Runamuck and Runabout were Decepticons, IIRC.

    What about Cloudraker and Fastlane? Though, even they are known to have drastically different ALT modes. Then again, it might make sense, as Bay's got this thing with incorporating the look of their ALT modes into their robot modes. They can't be identical if they're ... not identical.

    Even so, aren't Sidesweep and Sunstreaker the most obvious choice? I guess we'll see where it goes.

  5. They would be pretty small though if they are both the Ice Cream truck, and sorry I read it wrong now that I look at it i realize my error.

    I could see the NSX being Wheeljack too, but looking at my encyclopedia of Transformers G1, it could be a lot of others too.

  6. If the ice cream truck is supposed to be my two favorite Lamborghini's... I will scream. and I will probably commit a horrendous act of 'Hollywood homicide' if you catch my drift...

    Michael Bay will not be safe from the Sunny/Sides fan-girls/boys. Woe unto him if he should make such a choice.

  7. chances are the ice cream trucks are someone we have no clue about...decepticons..? Possible like rumble and return of frenzy..? or even some micro-bots..? As for the NSX, if it's red as stated, my guess is hot rod. Then the two RS6's could be Sideswipe and Sunstreakers (Sideswipe was black in G2)...or possibly have the red NSX as a new decepticon..? Runamuck and runabout seem pretty good guesses as well....

  8. Given that the transforers in Bay's transforer universe can change their camoflage pretty much at will, the ice cream truck could be Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. Maybe later in the film, they choose a more appropriate vehicle to transform into.

    I do quite like the idea of both of them merging into an alternative mode and Arcee splitting into 3 bikes for her alternate mode. It paves the way nicely for Devastator.

  9. Rappelz cater to the taste of young people. With cheap rappelz rupees, you can get everything you want in this game.
