Transformers cars rolling out in Cuzco – All the Transformers cars were rolling themselves over Cuzco streets to be part of the new scenes. Local fans and citizens were lucky to see them very close. The mysterious old VW van now features all its logos and text in Spanish. This character is rumored to be Wheeljack, it’s still unclear if this would be the case, but there’s a video where we can clearly listen to indications for a scene where they say “Wheeljack”.
Director Steven Caple Jr. is happy to announce that the principal photography of Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts has concluded successfully.
This announcement comes via the director’s official Instagram account with a picture of Steven Caple Jr. smiling proudly inside Optimus Prime’s altmode at Cuzco’s main square...
...‘That’s a wrap’ states the director, who may return back to the United States to oversee the post-production of the movie.
TFW2005 staff would like to take this opportunity to thank our 2005 Boards members who worked tirelessly to bring, not just news from the set, but also some amazing on-set images and videos. ROTB, by far, is our best look at such comprehensive coverage of day-to-day activities at a Transformers movie principal photography. We are proud of our members who kept, not just this site, but the entire Transformers community up to date with what’s happening in Peru.
Speaking of which, we would like to thank the good people in Peru. It’s clear to us that the cast and crew had a comfortable and safe time during their stay in this wonderful country.
I watched a lot more of the Beast Wars cartoon of the 90s than I did the Transformers cartoon of the 80s so this might be the most excited I am to see a Transformers movie since 2007. However I’m still not crazy excited because this is a film franchise I find far too boring. Maybe this one will be different but I doubt I’ll spent money on a theatre ticket to find out.
...But more importantly, we get the names of all these vehicle characters. We learn that the Volkswagen van is indeed Wheeljack as many had guessed. The Tow Truck is called Battletrap and from the looks of it it's most probably just a cool name for a bad guy with no relation to the G1 toy.
