Megatron Rumor, Florida and Detroit End Date

This is kind of a catch-all post for various news and rumors related to Transformers 3 which continues production in Detroit. The rumors in include a Megatron alt mode, Florida casting, and Detroit schedule info.

To start, a new rumor is making the web rounds that Megatron might have a new alt mode. Specifically the Mad Max-ish truck that was spotted in Chicago back in early August. The Imagination Studios posted info without any sources or details to attempt to vet its veracity. Just add it to the theory pile along with the rest (the Ferrari, the Fire Truck, etc) for which vehicle is for which character.

Next, a source tells me that today began the casting process for extras for when TF3 shows up at the Kennedy Space Center. Specifically it was for "badged" employees at the center so not really for the general public. Sounds like work is going to get a lot cooler for a select few. Update: An added note is around 600+ Space Center employees were at the extras casting call with the intent to use them sometime during the September 29th to October 7th date range of the shoot in Florida.

To swing things back to Detroit, The Detroit Times blog is reporting that filming in the city is schedule to end on October 1st. Filming will continue along a "three-block stretch of Griswold. The Griswold stretch, from State Street, past Capitol Park and up to Clifford Street, looked like a war zone, with charred cars flipped everywhere, building burned out, and broken concrete scattered. It was really cool to walk through." This was the location that J1000 and Surge29 captured their images and video. Filming along that stretch will wrap over the weekend.

  1. It sorta fits, but its odd at the same time. The oddest thing is those rumors turn out to be true. We are talking the movieverse here. Like Sentinel Prime we still have no confirmation to go on.

  2. just my opinion and not sure what everyone else thinks? fans know the robots, etc. your run of the mill person can't tell who is who and what is what with these robots. turning megatron and prime into different vehicles is only gonna confuse joeschmo even more. i hope they are different characters like ultra magnus and motormaster.

  7. I was riding on I75 and saw a semi-truck carrying 3 dark grey NEST trucks on the back, one (the first) was a Hummer HX, and the second and third one were Hummer H3Ts.

    They all had simple "NEST" text on the sides, (no logo like on the trucks from T2). And they had numbers and letters on the top left of the tailgate (on the trucks) that looked like a serial number (something like 6GH7Y9, didn't write it down).

    This was as I was going through Tifton, GA, we were both headed southbound I75. I thought that the trucks looked odd, and decided to look it up when I got home and see if they were from/for a movie. Apparently I was right, I'm glad I found this. I wish I would've taken a picture with my cameraphone now.

    This was today, so from what you say, apparently they were on the way to Fl to film.

  8. Hauntedone........It's megatron plain and simple. If it is proven wrong the people working on "it" have been lied to...... I wish bay and company would say something....

  9. It is for a fact megatron, my father in law who worked on the set in Chicago built Megatron. Once again the Mad Max semi is Megatron thats a Fact! The all blue semi that you saw that was onsite on Clien Avenue where the extra was hurt, is also Megatron scence where his true form will be added VIA special effects. Also if not sure if its known or not what Patrick Dempseys characters role is in the movie? I know
