UPDATE!! Here's A Look At A Robot Man Thing From TRANSFORMERS 3!!

Merrick again, again... Well, we've managed to confirm though highly knowledgeable sources that the pic below is not from TRANSFORMERS 3. This said, we've been unable to confirm that it is from REAL STEEL - so who knows what the hell we're looking at. If we figure it out, we'll let you know.





Merrick again... Note that...officially...TRANSFORMERS 3 doesn't ramp up in Chicago until early next month. Although, it's possible stand-in bots for the film might already be on-site? It's also feasible that the picture's announced schedule has changed in some way- or that we're being deliberately misdirected re: location. Looking into this, as well as possible REAL STEEL connection. More as we know more.



Merrick here...
An AICN reader called Bruiser sent in this snapshot - he/she says it's from the Chicago set of TRANSFORMERS 3.
If so, I'm guessing this is a practical stand-in for a bot that'll eventually be enlivened by CGI - but that's merely a guess. Is this some kind of mechanical man built by humans to use as army against Decepticons? Or...we've recently learned that part of the picture's plot plot involves the U.S./Russian Space Race (details HERE). Perhaps this a Russian bot of some sort - it has that weird Soyuz coloring)? All of this is merely speculation & I could be completely wrong. Just thinking out loud... Looks a little like the ABC warrior from JUDGE DREDD...

    Do they even build practical bots for these movies?

    by Jaka

    I just assumed they were 100% CGI. And it does kind of look boxerish, especially it's hands. Re: Real Steel, I still don't understand why robots need to be trained. Totally makes no sense to me. Just program the damn thing to kick ass.

    by The InSneider

    Hey man, I think that robot looks an awful lot like the robot in the Real Steel photos that AICN ran the other day. You should call Don Murphy at Angry Films. He's a good guy who's producing both Real Steel and T3, and he'd probably be willing to identify the photo to clear up any confusion...

    Bay bringing back the Retro 80's bodies?!

    by thefit

    Long shot but what if Bay seeing as this could be the last in the series decided to use the retro bodies, maybe the humans try building their own bots but without the all spark or whatever they are just lifeless shells. Cybertron is destroyed so in order for the Trannies to stay on earth after being severly damaged in battles etc they have to use these more primitive ( 80's/cold war era looking) bodies to continue their existance here. That might be proto human bumble bee.

    that is SO from real steel.

    by zom-bot.com

    i won't even bother placing bets that this will be updated to reflect that- because it will. shocks and pistons in the forearms, pugilistic hands, and a cartoonish boxer's build. battle damage. the transformers bots have NONE of those traits or even faces or anatomy that can even be defined as 'classic robot' like this guy has. i think your 'source' is either misleading or doesn't know shit about anything. i guarantee he's assuming it's Transformers 3 because he hadn't heard of REAL STEEL yet, like none of us did until yesterday.

    by zom-bot.com

    no, it IS a different robot than the one shown in the real steel pic the other day- that one is more modern and i believe even has some kanji (japanese lettering) on his arm... this is a beat up old clunker, most likely the junker hugh jackman refurbishes or perhaps another older model.

    Easy on JUDGE DREDD

    by spud mcspud

    Yes, it went downhill fast after the helmet came off (especially the flying bike chase scene, which was so shit Lucas stole it and used it in ATTACK OF THE CLONES) but the Block Wars bit at the beginning was pure class. THAT was the real deal. Unfortunately, some twat decided to give Dredd the ability to emote, and then added Rob Schneider for good measure.<P> But that first twenty minutes... Awesome. "I AM THE LAW! Drop your weapons! These blocks have been pacified!!". Say what you like (and FUCK that stupid catchphrase "I knew you were gonna say that") about the rest of the movie, but with the helmet on, Stallone nailed the DREDD character...

    I ask again (without expecting an answer)...

    by Jaka

    ...do they actually build practical stand-ins for the robots in Transformers? I don't own either DVD (and never will), so I've watched no special features. The robots are clearly CGI, and a lot of them are freakin' huge, so I just figured the "actors" were emoting to an instructed eye-line. Or maybe to a dangling tennis ball. Or a guy in a green suit dangling upside down from a crane. Whatever. I was not under the impression that there were any "real" robots being built for these productions.

    by AsimovLives

    Answer: no they don't. The transfoemrs only exist inside a computer drive. that much is obvious, i mean, you think the fucking design of the villains robots could be achieved with models? People would get killed trying to build them, due to the stupid spikes design. In fact, if anybody had actually made the transformers robots as models, they would figureed out pretty soon how fucking ugly they all look like, and this includes the heros robots.
