TF3 Chicago: More from Post Office Set (Updated)

While Transformers 3 films in Detroit, here are more images thanks to Sam Nickelson from around July 23rd when TF3 was in Chicago at the Old Post Office Building filming. As he reported before, the building was dressed as part of the US Department of Health and Human Services and it seems they have quite the vehicle fleet as it’s not just a few trucks dressed with the logo but SUVs, cars, and big wheelers. Also, he took a few picks of the props used there including, in the first image, an odd looking gray shaped thing. If it was a part of a Transformer, I would think it would be CGI blue so not really sure what to make of it.

Update: Thanks to Colin Hinkle below are three more images he took of the weird object. As he reminded me, we actually saw it from a post for the July 18th when filming was occurring near The Chicago Tribune. There is also a video that briefly shows it. I guess that means it is building debris, very real in design between the crane and the resulting crushed car. Usually the set debris is essentially skillfully painted Styrofoam that weighs next to nothing.

    They are NOT IN THE MOVIE! Damn people.....

  7. umm... i think thats part of a robot... definetley doesnt look like debris. it looks like its made of metal or some sort of hard material, im also thinking when it drops on the car the (autobot/decepticon?) is stepping on the car.

    I agree with anon 8:36 and 9:28, looks like a foot to me too, it has to be, or maybe it's only a toe! And it's defenitly heavy, not styrofoam at all, it hangs on a chain.
    So like anon 8:36 said, it must be heavy as hell, when they drop it on the car, the car gets smashed.
