Boneyard Set Report October 15th, 2008

An Anony­mous source has sent Seib­ertron a set report from the Bone­yard along with a few images of the vehi­cles in stor­age show­ing the Chevy Volt and Chevy Centennial.

Dear Seib​ertron​.com,

Me again — I have some follow-up infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing the “Bum­ble­bee Sighted” arti­cle that you pre­vi­ously posted. I vis­ited the 309th AMARG again today for their last day of film­ing; and let me tell you, it was busy. Lots of new pho­tos, includ­ing a bumper shot of ‘Side­swipe’ and a lit­tle snip­pet of a pic­ture of what I believe to be the blue Chevy Volt (how­ever, dur­ing the time I was present this vehi­cle was never actu­ally taken off the trailer; nei­ther was Side­swipe to my knowl­edge). No pic­tures of Shia or Megan; but, as I was informed by plenty of sol­diers (con­cern­ing Fox, any­ways); the two were def­i­nitely on set. I apol­o­gize for some of the pic­tures that came out some­what small and rounded; I actu­ally had to snap those cer­tain shots through a pair of binoc­u­lars. Iron­i­cally enough, the pic­tures I took of Bum­ble­bee (yel­low 2009 con­cept Camaro) and the red and green Chevy Trax & Beat (the ‘Twins’, I think?) were actu­ally on my way off the set. Lucky me!

Some­thing else I don’t know if you would be inter­ested in or not — but I’ll add it on here any­ways, just in case. The scene that I wit­nessed them film­ing con­sisted of a long, large sheet of metal (maybe a cover up for some­thing of some sort?) being stood up by the side of one of the planes in The Bone­yard, and lots of loud gib­ber­ish shout­ing com­ing from what I believe to be one of the trans­form­ers. Keep in mind this scene was watched from about 200 meters away — but why I think its impor­tant is because of the loud, boom­ing voice we heard from over 200 meters away. We couldn’t make out what he was say­ing; but what we could iden­tify was that it was male, and very Decep­ti­con sound­ing — mean­ing a very deep, bari­tone sort of sound to it but with a sharp, man­i­festly evil edge. In my own opin­ion (and those of all of the sol­diers that accom­pa­nied me on the “tour”) this was the voice of Mega­tron — def­i­nitely evil, def­i­nitely loud. Then again, it could have been that ‘Jet­fire’ char­ac­ter that I’ve heard a lit­tle bit about — the plane where the sound orig­i­nated from wasn’t the exact air­craft he’s been described as, but then again I wasn’t up close and per­sonal with it so it’s a tough one to call. Alas, I wouldn’t be sur­prised if this mys­te­ri­ous voice did belong to Mega­tron — had a sort of, feel to it, you know?
Some­thing like, “Damn, that guy is pissed.“
Mega­tron or not, whoever’s voice that belonged to def­i­nitely wanted some sort of Revenge

Well, that’s all the news I have so far. If I hear or (hope­fully) see any­thing else con­cern­ing Trans­form­ers: Revenge of the Fallen; I’ll be sure to update you guys!
