Transformers 3 Coming to Moscow and Chicago

The official website of Michael Bay has confirmed that Transformers 3 will film action sequences in Chicago, Illinois and Moscow, Russia. Details beyond that were not revealed.
Nelson here...

Spoke with Michael today and got some little info on TF3: there will be big action sequences shot in Chicago and Moscow this time around.

Also, Mike will match the amount raised by the TF2 DVD/Blu-ray sales for the Make A Wish Foundation.
According to an article on, production in Chicago could start as soon as March but that remains unverified and strikes me as unlikely. Thanks to Katie for the link.
Meanwhile, Chicago is still in the running for "Transformers 3." Director Michael Bay also is sizing up Detroit and Washington, D.C. for his latest big-budget invasion of alien robots. Imagine Bumblebee stomping through the Loop! We're talking genuine Monsters of the Midway. Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox will reprise their roles as teen heroes Sam and Mikaela.
The Make A Wish Foundation note is a reference to the signed edition of Transformers that Bay and Tyrese participated in for the organization last year. The indicated amount raised was estimated around $20,000.


  1. Transformer 1 and 2 are really good action movies .Both parts are full of science friction and animated action the second part is more entertaining.

  2. Hey, does anyone know for sure that the Recon Ravage toy is available only by that mail away offer? Because I found him at work last night. He looks really nice. :)

  3. SPOILER: In Revenge of the Fallen, there is a seeker robot in Chicago. This is the scene where Wheelie points out with his green laser to find Jetfire. Kind of interesting to me.

  4. I want to see the filming in Chicago sooo much! I really hope to see confirmed filming dates soon.
    Thanks for the heads-up blog guy!

  5. God I hope Bay doesn't screw up traffic in Chicago any worse than it usually is. I have to drive my truck though there on an almost daily basis. (No, my truck does not look like ANY version of Optimus, unfortunatly.)
