Pics, Videos from Elgin, Texas Filming (Updated)

Below are more images and video from the TaylorElgin, Texas set of Transformers 4 that was taken by JasonBo who also took many pictures last week that showed off the cast for the first time.  Below are few new one that include the first real look at Nicola Peltz on the set, Mark Wahlberg in mechanic makeup, and a close look at the rusted Prime cab that really shows off the faded flame decals that indicate this is Prime's alt mode for a portion of the movie. In addition below are two videos that show a little bit of the filming. One involves the Rusted Prime, the other shows I guess government vehicles heading somewhere. Update: JasonBo has added dozens more pictures from the Elgin, Texas base camp of Transformers 4 that includes pics of most of the cast, few soldier characters, and what lighting prep for a scene. You can find them here.

  1. Maybe it's not Optimus? It could be, but maybe it's Motormaster. Notice the M on the truck? Then again, maybe the M is for Mack.

  3. I'm confused....when did the rusted truck become Optimus Prime? Was there something official that said it and I missed it? We're all entitled to our opinions and speculations on who the characters and alt-forms might be, but the owner of this blog is not just outright saying it is Prime. Let's maintain the integrity of this blog and state it as the truck you "think" is Prime. A lot of people come to this blog for their news.

  6. Remember the "leaked" script that was floating around? They end up traveling through time (from TheAllspark.com - The old fake script gem - time travel. This probably could fall under "Fan-Wank", but it's so ridiculous it deserves to be its own reason. At page 65 of the script, the Transformers time travel back to the 1980s. Where they immediately scan "time-appropriate alternate modes". IE, their original Generation 1 alternate modes...) maybe?

  7. Does anyone know if they are still filming in Elgin as of June 20? I drove up Monday but we only got to see Mark going to his trailer. He waved and spoke and then got called back to the Mill scene about 20 minutes later. Trying to find out if filming continues today before deciding to drive back down there

    @Chad:
    The truck became Prime, since the flame job was spotted on the truck. That makes it plausible, that Prime is in hiding, during the 4 years between Dark Of The Moon and TF4.
    But it also could be an entirely other character indeed.

    @Kenny Swezea:
    I do not think it has to do with them traveling back in time and immediatly scan another old altmode, because we saw the truck togehter with the Lamborghini Aventador in setphoto's last week. In order for that to be plausible in one way, the Lamborghini had to be a Countach.

  9. @Martinus....Your reasoning makes perfect sense. I love all the speculation leading up to the release of a film. I almost look forward to it as much as the movie itself.

  13. So, click this link and tell me what you think. If you click on the side view pic of the MARMON TRUCK look down beside the door handle. after you have the pic enlarged...click it again and it goes into a close up view of the truck for a second as it pans out. Is that a Blue Autobot Symbol or am I seeing what I want to see? http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonbotx/9081381019/
