New Images from Transformers 4 Sets and Official Bay Image (Updated)

It has been a quiet few days as Monday and Tuesday was Transformers: Age of Extinction's weekend off and for now we don't really know where they are currently filming in the Chicago area. However, that doesn't mean do not have some interesting pictures to look at thanks to cmraseye. He has posted new images from filming at the Damen Avenue silo to go with his set from Saturday. The pics show part of an explosion set off that day but also a great look at the spacecraft prop that the cast has been filming on here and there for the last month or so. He also added a few bonus pictures that are worth checking out from filming last month. The last pic is a new official picture from Transformers 4 that shows Michael Bay in the middle of the action. The rest of cmraseye TF4 gallery can be found here. Thanks to Jeffrey Marshall for the heads-up and KennyD for corrected pic.

Update: Added few more images from the gallery, turns out it had a page 2 I missed. Also provided a flipped version of what many of figure is probably the Pagani Huayra. I am not sure where some of the photos were taken but they look cool. Most look better than the official over photoshopped, color-corrected Bay picture.

  1. So is that the form of the new red car on the clapperboard??? Hot Rod or Rodimus

    ReplyDelete
  2. The fifth picture with the clap board looks like the robot form of the Red Pagani Huyara!

    Could it be the new alt mode for "Dino" OR the Decepticon Medic, "Knockout" OR the next in line for the leadership of the Autobots, "Hot Shot?"

    1. It looks like Dino, because he has those blade thingo's that came out of his arms.

      Delete
    2. If we could see even color of the eyes, we could know if Pagani (it has to be in that clapperboard) is an Autobot or not Decepticon. But I guess we won't know the eye color before the faction.

    3. The eye color looks orange/yellowish...

  3. One of the Orbital Assault Carriers from DOTM? I guess some things never change.

      If you look a little better, you see the engines are oin backwards. This alien ship has been build by the human scientists most probably, who found this in the rubble from the Chicago destruction. That's one way how the human scientists get their TF tech.

      Great pics and I don't think the red TF on the clapperboard is the Pagani. It looks like it has headlights in its chest, but they don't look anything like the Pagani's head or taillights. Maybe it is another TF. It probably isn't Dino, bc this one has grey shoulder pieces and bigger light unit looking things in the chest.

    2. Actually, if remeber it right, those egine were able to rotate in DOTM.

      Indeed, yes, you are right, but it seems that this one has an added piece where the humans are in, that part wasn't there on those ships before. Or it is fixed. The human scientists probably found it that way.

    1. Mirage ???

      Delete
    2. So you believe that Dino returns, but with a name "Mirage" (that was originally planned to be name in DOTM). Dino had too small role in DOTM, just like Jolt had too small role in ROTF. Dino of course had a dialogue in DOTM, but I still don't believe he's in this as Mirage.

      Delete
  8. I'm not sure who the red bot is. He has light optics from what I can tell. Hot Rod/Rodimus has that large yellow wing on his back. Knockout has wheels visible on his shoulders. Mirage has those door wings that flare out.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would be willing to bet that factor that he doesn't have the wing on the back is pretty irrelevant in Bayformers. We will see in just under a year

  9. I'm leaning towards it being Mirage.

    There is even another clapperboard, with what seems to have a yellow bot on it, but it's very hard to see, bc the picture was not zoomed in, maybe it's Bee.
    Look on the left monitor:

    2. Its yellowish, grey and black which is similar colours to grimlock!!!!!

    3. True, but it could also be the Lamborghini Aventador. It has orange colour parts on it, plus that transformer on the clap board looks too small to be Grimlock, but small enough to be the Lamborghini.

    4. Or possibly be a complete CGI transformer!

  11. I wonder if the red bot could be a Dinobot. Swoop or Slag?

    1. It looks like Optimus had lost left arm or something...it is probably in "sword mode."

      Delete
    2. Martinus Prime9/28/2013 7:09 AM

      If it's supposed to be a picture from the back, it's good, but if it's a picture from the front, it's wrong, bc Optimus lost his right arm in DOTM.

      But maybe Optimus gets some awesome upgrade weapons in his arms and this is also just a tease, like the Jetfire combine from ROTF. Then maybe it's indeed in 'sword mode'.

      Delete
    3. Dudemus:l thinks it's the robot mode for the pugani. Speaking of the pugani there's a comic book with Rodimus prime that has a alt mode that looks similar to the pugani. So I'm leaning towards that theory. That Rodimus will be in this series more than likely if he is he'll be Hotrod and possibly become Rodimus in one of the upcoming features.

      Delete
    4. @Martinus Prime: Yeah, your right, it was Optimus' right arm that was cut off. It must be from the back then. But then again his arm looks much skinnier even if it is in 'sword form'. Just compare his upper arm with his left arm. The shapes are not symmetrical. Looks totally different. I hope they haven't stuffed him up.

      @Dudemus: That was my exact theory as well. It was said that there is going to be Transformers 5 & 6 as well. It is a possibility that Hot Rod is in this. However, does that mean Optimus will perish?

      *From now on I will be:
      Ironhide44

      Delete
    5. Dudemus: l hope not, the last thing I want to see again is Optimus kicking the bucket again...if my theory is correct, l hope if he does take leadership of the Autobots that perhaps Optimus will continue the fight on other planets in the universe. I mean since his belief is freedom is the right of all sentient beings. And leave Rodimus to take command on Earth...just a theory.

      Delete
    6. Ironhide44:
      Other planets? That is a plausible theory for a new animation etc... But, i'm pretty sure Bay said he is going to keep his franchise as realistic as possible.

      Delete
    7. Just because he lost his arm doesnt mean he doesnt get it back.. Remember in TF1 Bumblebee got his bottom half blow off, then in ROTF he had it back on.. idk

      Delete
    8. Martinus Prime9/30/2013 8:49 AM

      Bay will never let Optimus die again, or die completely, he will keep him as the Autobot leader, simply bc he is the most popular charachter.
      My guess is that Bay thinks, like many fans, that Rodimus is always second best to Optimus, like in the G1 cartoon. Optimus is far more superior.

      Optimus obvioulsy will get his arm back, the only question is, what kind of weaponry will he get this time, bc Bay is wearing that silhouette shirt for a teasing reason, just like we saw with ROTF with the Optimus/Jetfire combiner silhouette.

      Delete
  14. Speaking of the optimus shirt he is wearing, if you look to left of him, u can see a head sculpt of what i believe to be bumblebee!

  15. What if Dinobots have actually three modes: robot mode, dinosaur mode and vehicle mode? Claw on shoulders of that bot and color scheme same than with the Lamborghini seems to be give a little hint. And before any arguments, trust me: that claw-shoulder-bot is NOT Bugatti.

    4. Sorry again, just received another email from my "source" confirming the 'blood red' Pagani is NOT "Dino". It is infact a Decepticon. However, Dino is in this but not as that alt mode!!
      Lets just say my "sources" are working on the Transformers 4 film and leave it at that.

      I shall ask about that white Camaro and let you people know.

      Delete
    5. If this all pans out, I honestly wouldn't mind the Pagani being Knockout. The white Camaro was filmed with the Autobots.

      Delete
    6. Dudemus:anybody can say anything. I for one personally doubt the Pagani is a Deception, nor do I believe that its Dino. You have to individuals with these so called "valuable/reliable sources" with conflicting statements as to who is who. "The Pagani is Dino" ..."no its a Decepticon" Mike B has his way of putting out falsified information when it comes to these films. We all know this, he's done it before with the others, why expect anything less from him this time?...adding to that most on that list has conclusion which we've already discussed and the others were verified by Mike B himself on his sight.

      Delete
    7. Dudemus: l just come back from the TFW sight and there is a sceen of the Agrosy with a Black Suburban along with the Pagani. Now one so called extreme valuable source claim they are both Autobots with the Pagani being a redesigned Dino (which I doubt)...And the other is saying Now that the pugani is in fact a Decepticon and not the redesign Dino. This is exactly why I chose not to run with BS. Discussing the possibilities through speculative narrative is great and refreshing, but these supposed facts without(and I say again) verified evidents it which to base it, makes me sick...please, join us in discussion not bs information. If your claims are indeed fact, proof it. Otherwise your wasting our time.

    8. Another update on Transformers 4 Cast:
      The Lamborghini Aventador Coupe is classified as a Decepticon [not Autobot]
      The White Camaro spotted: still has not been identified for anything...

      I really don't care what you think, you can choose to believe me or not. I know there are other peeps out there who have already speculated"the cast, but I am only telling you what I am being told by my sources. These sources don't mess around. I know this is hard, but the only proof you will get is my word!!

    9. First Fregihtliner, then Pagani and now Lambo? Is it only matter of time when you tell Sonic being a Decepticon too?!

  17. Honestly? While I do really like Dino, all I truly care about are if Sideswipe and Ratchet are in the movie and make it thru alive.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Dudemus: I think Ratchet will be, but I actually believe he's not going to live through the movie. Mike B has gotten into the habit of killing off the main original cast of characters from the g1cartoon since Jazz in the first movie. Then Ironhide, wheeljack. Ratchet is probably next on Mike B hitlist...and this spoiler guy with this source...stop it. We've seen enough of these reliable source nonsense and bs spoilers. If you can't officially backup your claim keep that trash to yourselve. You seem like you are in need of attention. You have the wrong site if you think you'll get it here...beat it!

  20. Yno, with all the guessing as to which Autobots are in the new movie, I've come across some really nice looking collector pieces pictures.This is making it really hard to decide which Autobot I want to collect next. I have alternators Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. I also just bought Masterpiece Prowl. Now I can't decide between Jazz, Smokescreen, Red Alert, Ratchet, an Aerialbot or Swoop.

    1. Dudemus: seems as if you like the G1 versions, Tens. My official opinion, jazz or Convoy Optimus Prime. However, the human alliance movie version of Jazz is incredible. The paint paint apps are surreal and the robot mode is excellent by far in comparison to all the other human alliance figures. Masterpiece Prowl is a great figure too. You won't have any complaints about him from me, Tens.

    2. Dubemus:I'd rather see bumblebee bite the bullet. Adds for great dramatic. Besides I'm growing tired of the Bee. Although aside from optimus, Bee has kicked the most ass in the movie. Barride, Brawl, Rampage and Ravage, Soundwave and Decepticon warrior drone. Hes 6-0...still tired of him though.

    3. Martinus Prime9/30/2013 10:45 AM

      I'm not that tired of Bee, he indeed has awesome fighting scenes, but I hope Bee now is more of a bad-ass without goofy humor. Ha has to be more of a grown up Autobot, not that childlike anymore.
      My most important thing for Bee now is, he HAS to talk, no more communication through the stupid radio!!! That's been done to death now and is getting really old and lame!!! You can't tell me Ratchet or some other Autobot can't fix his vocal cords.

      Hasbro will never let Bee die, he's the most popular Bot there is, together with Prime.
      But it would be great for drama.

      Delete
    4. Dudemus:be can talk, he spoke at the end of the first one, and in the ROTF when Magan asked about his voice when they were in the garage, Sam said he's playing it off. I know you remember. Can't say I liked the way he sounded, like Idris Alba.lol

    5. Martinus Prime9/30/2013 2:25 PM

      Yeah yeah, ofcourse I certainly do remember, that scene always gives me shivers down my spine, that was so damn awesome when Bee talked and he sounded awesome imo!!! Very military, respectful (towards Optimus) and robotic.

      Yes he played it of in the garage in ROTF, but why didn't he talk the rest of the movie, when it matters during important scenes?
      And why didn't he talk during DOTM? The circumstances in DOTM were apocolypsely important, those are the moments where you talk to communicate.

    If Bee doesn't talk again this time, then I'm also done with Bee!!!! The I'll also say, kill him off!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Bee is suppose to be the youngest of all the Autobots. His voice at the end of the first movie was way too adult. I think that's why we haven't heard him talk since then. I think the perfect voice actor for Bee is the guy who voiced him at the end of Transformers Prime Beats Hunters cartoon, Will Friedle. Be sounded like what he should be, a young adult Autobot. I won't say that I'd ever be done with Bee, as he's one of my favorites, but he needs to speak with a voice and not the radio.

    1. Martinus Prime9/30/2013 2:36 PM

      No that's not the reason tens. The reason why, is Bay likes his humor, the comedic relief it brought by the talking through the radio. Altough I liked it when Alice sat in the passengers seat and got bumped on the dash and got sprayed on with lubricant!!! That was funny as hell. But it has it's best run, Bee needs to talk now!
      It really doesn't matter who does the voice, the voice is altered to sound like a robot, so it kinda doesn't matter. Mark Ryan did a fantastic job in TF1.

      I don't know how Friedle sounds, bc here in The Netherlands the 2nd season of Prime just begun on tv and it is synchronised in Dutch, urggghhh, so I'll have to wait even longer, like 4-6 months till the DVD's come out.

      Delete
    2. Have you seen Batman Beyond? The guy who voices Terry Mcginnis (aka Batman)? That is Will Friedle. I swear when I heard Bee speak at the end of TF:Prime it was sick as! To be honest better then Mark Ryan! It actually suited him!

    3. Actually Bumblebee wasn't the youngest Autobot in the entire franchise. Twins in ROTF were definitely younger than him.

    1. Dudemus:as l said "the ladies love Bumblebee"...either or on your next purchase. They are both great figures. But tell me something...why has there been very little mentioned about Energon in these movies?...and the only ones who seen to care much about it is the Decepticons. The Autobots have been here on Earth for about 10yrs without it. What's keeping them going? G1, they found that Earth's oil can be transformed into energon. Tfprime, we find that Energon had been stashed here on Earth before we were created and they mined for it in the series. Where are the Mike B's Cybertronians getting theirs from, and will we find out in this movie? Someone enlighten me.

      Delete
    2. Dudemus:l also forgot to mention that when Sentinel Prime had said we're here for some of Earth's natural resources, I at first believed that the Oil into Energon was going to be part of the theme. Forgive me for thinking too much.

      Delete
    3. Martinus Prime9/30/2013 2:18 PM

      You're very right Dudemus, there has to be something now where they search and find energon. Maybe in the movie only the hatchlings need energon to grow and excisting adult TF don't need energon anymore.

      Otherwise it's important they find something and they should indeed at least explain a ittle why the Autobots aren't seen taking energon. Only if it is a little scene where we see them something like transform oil into energon.
      That would make a great important plotdetail for the next movies also. Then the Decepticons have reasons to stay on earth.

      Delete
  24. They did mention in the second movie that the sun was a source of energon, which is why the Fallen wanted to harvest it. I think we're suppose to just accept that the Transformers are getting their energon or an alternate of energon from somewhere on Earth. The wreckers are scientists and they supposedly arrived shortly after the first movie (with Sideswipe, Dino, and the others). They were working, more than likely, at NASA building their ship. I would imagine they also figured out how and where to get energon or an alternate for energon.

    1. Sideswipe and the Wreckers arrived before ROTF, but Wreckers stayed at Cape Canaveral until DOTM. Dino and Que arrived after ROTF.

    2. Dudemus: yes, tens. But the energy from the sun has to be harvested first and then processed into energon. So they're not getting energized by the Sun itself, if that was the case Jetfire wouldn't have said without energon they would oxidize and rust like my retched self. So the question still remains. And besides, that's Superman...lol

      While JJ Abrams would be perfect choise, I do think Bay is the perfect director for Transformers.
      If only he stuck with quality from the 1st movie, bc he did a perfect job with that. The battle between Optimus and Megatron could be better and longer and be filmed better, but for the rest it is a perfect TF movie.

      In the G1 cartoon they also did not search for energon in every episode and just had a story, where they battled the Decepticons, or human villains, or a love story.

      Delete
    3. Dudemus:I do agree that yes they didn't focus on Emerson throughout the G1series, however it was something that that was important to them within the series. So it would seem to be logical that somewhere In Bayverse that this should again be a topic in the film because they've been here all this time without it. We're going on the forth installment without them being recharged at all, or at least give us one sceen of them getting some energon. I'm curious to see how they actually consume it.

    4. Dudemus: I spoke of JJ Abrams because I'm not what you would call a Star Trek fan, but he has put a really good spin on it. The "Into The Darkness" was a great movie. And I believe he could do the same for the next Transformers movies. I enjoy the way he adds a bit of humor without going overboard. And l would be delighted to see what his directorial could do for this franchise as well.

      I am not a Star Trek at all, not at all! But yes, Abrams did a perfect job with the reboot, he made the movies for everyone, not just the Trekkers.
      And I tink the 2 Star Trek movies are just pure awesome, story, action, character development and humor wise!!!
      Also his Super 8 is an awesome movie, very good storytelling and it withholds the secret very long. And a perfect acting young cast, unbelievable, so good.
