Transformers 4 Chicago Filming Going Out With Bang, New Vid and Galleries

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Transformers: Age of Extinction's Chicago leg of principle photography is planning to go out with a literal bang. The crew will return to the South Damen Avenue abandoned silo for what their source called the "mother of all bombs". While the site will probably not be open the public, it still might be visible from a distance. Meanwhile, filming this weekend including a car flipping into a bus with other filming at the South Wacker Drive location being used as a China street. The vids below shows some smaller pyrotechnics and cars flipping for a seen further down from the bus's location.

In addition a few new pics of a Chevrolet Suburban chasing the Pagani and Freightliner suggests the return of the Decepticon Dreads from Dark of the Moon. Rather then repeat that sequence I am more inclined to think it is Harold Attinger's soldiers. Last, cmraseye has posted another 50 pics from various Chicago TF4 sets over the last month up on his flickr account. You can find those new images here. Thanks to Wynton R. and Jeffrey Marshall for the links.

  1. I think it is safe to say that the Pagani Huarya is an autobot, Decepticons don't really get chased by cons....so it is probably an autobot trying to evade human forces.

    1. Sorry I mean decepticons don't really get chased by humans in the sense that they believe they are inferior and just tend to...well...kill them.

  2. those pictures dont show the suburban chasing those cars. It shows it in between the truck and pagani. Im thinking all 3 of them are cons.

    2. Dudemus:or it could be the truck and suburban are chasing the pugani. Anything is possible. I for one think that the Pugani is an Autobot. Yet, its beginning to seem to be the latter. Maybe he could be a Con, if so I would go with Knockout.

    On one of the photo's from cmraseye, you can see there's a dent in the new Bumblebee:

    1. Dudemus:you what? I hope Optimus doesn't have another wimp moment like he's had in the previous installments. First it was "if I can't defeat Megatron" bit. Then it was Optimus practically begging for his life when Sentinel Prime was putting a leaderclass size can of whupass on him.

  4. I might sound stupid to some of you, but I'm just not aware of something (Yeah, I've been gone away for a long time) :
    Wasn't Ironhide killed in TF3 ? So how come his vehicle mode is there?

  5. Ironhide's alt form was GMC Topkick and yes, Bay had another epic brainfart and killed him off. I haven't seen his alt mode in any T4 pics or videos though. I've seen a Chevy Suburban, which was the alt form of the Dreads.
