Transformers 4 Warehouse Explosion Video and Set Pics from Bazaar (Update 2)

Earlier Brian K. reported that Transformers 4 production was filming at Detroit's Russell Bazaar and across the street. He has now provided more info, pictures of the cast and a video of a big pyrotechnic explosion that was set off in front of a warehouse that looks sweet live so will be amazing once Bay and his editors do their magic. My guess is the scenes being filmed are a continuation of the chase sequence shot in Taylor, Texas.

Update: Thanks to Brian we have more pictures and another video. The pictures are from this afternoon from filming with the Rally Fighter (description below). The video shows Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and TJ Miller running from the smoking Sonic Racer.

Update 2: The warehouse location has been ID'ed as the Fisher Body Plant. To view another video of the explosions set off by "explosives hung on ropes diagonally across the front of the building" then click here.
Transformers 4 production was filming this afternoon at the Russell Bazaar location in Detroit. I spotted a helicopter mounted with a camera, the Rally Fighter vehicle, Sonic RS Rally Car and two Cadillac Escalades. The Escalades had US Gov plates and soldiers with guns in them. The Rally Fighter was chasing one of the Sonics, with the ESQ's running behind and with the Rally Fighter. They did this scene over and over. The helicopter was diving at them and flying through the buildings chasing them as it filmed. The Helo was on station from at least 2 pm (from seeing it in the distance. I got there at around 6pm) till about 6:30 then it went to film across the freeway at second location. They then changed their location across I-75 from the Bazaar to the intersection of Harper and St. Antoine with the crew and copper.

At the warehouse at Harper and St. Antoine around 7:15pm they set off a massive explosion at the warehouse with the camcopter and Porsche filming. About a half hour later they set up a shot with Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, and T.J. Miller running from the Chevy Sonic shouting to each other while the car was smoking next to the warehouse. While they were setting up that shot the flat nosed rusted semi character was brought up to the set and looked like it was going to be used in the next scene.

    1. Yeah, I was just thinking that! But because of the flames, i think it could be another alt mode for Optimus Prime, like Bumblebee and his 67' Vintage Camaro SS.

  2. I'd associate the old looking flatnose semi with the old looking face we have seen, beard and pipe, seems to suit the characteristics of the altmode... Probably its Ultra Magnus as he's supposed to be quite old.

    I still think the rusted old flatnose truck is the other altmode for Optimus Prime, when the Autobots are in hiding, during the 4 years. And it is a tribute to Prime's G1 altmode, just like Bay did in TF1 with the VW Bug for Bumblebee.
    That is why Bee is a '67 Camaro for a short time of the film.

    But what got me thinking, al these cars are all dirty, just like DOTM Ratchet. I'm still thinking DOTM Ratchet filmed a couple of scenes. One can hope.

  5. I've had my suspicions about that sonic ever since it was revealed. Everyone thinks it's CJ... If it is... Then cool... But I think that car is Breakdown. An undercover con...

    Some people (on S4TE) say the Rally Fighter(s) have an Autobot symbol!!?? I don't see it, any of you guys see it?

  7. None of the vehicles yesterday sported any type of symbology, other than the caddy with USGov plates. The old truck did swap out the peterbuilt symbol for a big red M logo......M=motormaster or Magnus....we'll I guess....:-)

      That's not true, the old truck had always the big red M logo on the front.

    2. The emblem stands for Marmon which is the type of truck it is

  9. What I'm saying is that isn't a peterbuilt logo...

    1. no, it is the original logo of the truck company that made that particular model. when i saw it for the first time i too thought that it was and ultra magnus sign, but it was not that simple to confirm

      Delete
    2. Because it is NOT a Peterbilt. It's a Marmon, and the ''M'' stands for that, it's the company logo.

  10. The "M" is the badge for the truck manufacturer Marmon Trucks. They stopped producing rigs in the late 90's. The symbol is not related to the Bots or Cons.

  11. I guess Need for Speed and TF4 were sharing the rally fighter. And why are they running from the Sonic? Weren't they driving it not long ago? Unless, of course, a Decepticon scanned Daddy's rally car, or a wild Cliffjumper that turns good later on (scenes shot out of order)?

    1. I'm starting to think the whole Need For Speed filming at the same time, in the same area is part of the misinformation they like to feed us. That way, they can surprise us when all, or some, of those cars that are supposedly filming for N4S, will actually be Transformers in the new movie.

      Yeah, like the 2014 blue Aston Martin Vanquish! And like the ramp that was build.
      But I'm afraid that just won't be the case. But then again, the Cadillac Cien Concept was also on that trailer, that supposedly would be for N4S. And now that car was seen at the GM plant in Lansing, where they filmed for TF4.
      Guesses, guesses......

  12. I'm starting have enough of this. Bay told that Sonic would be one of the robot characters. But for now we've seen it only as vehicle used by the human characters. Who or what Sonic really is?!

      Dude, what do youwant? That they make real TF robots running around? All TF car-characters have only been seen as vehicles. We have not seen any Autobot new robot desigsn.
      We all want to see the robot designs, keep it together.
      Do you want to know everything before you see the movie. I do not, I do not even want to know who or what TF the Sonic is.

      What boggles me, is that we haven't seen any other pole-faces from any other Transformers on this big set! I guess they stopped using those just to keep everything a secret. Or there is very less interaction between humans and TF.
      My guess is that they finally want to keep everything a secret, till the movie comes out. They saw how fast that dumb ass Santabot poleface came on the internet.

  14. Guys! Big news! Over at www.tfw2005.com, a yellow Saleen S7 has been spotted with the Cadillac at one of the Transformers sets.

    In my opinion I think they are the Mini-Con Street Speed Team:

    Saleen S7 - Autobot: "Oval"
    2002 Cadillac Cien - Autobot: "Backtrack"

    *(Note there is a third member in this team, named "Spiral" who is a Mercedes C230, but this car has not been spotted)
