Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative has confirmed during 'The Making of the World of Harry Potter' that Transformers director Michael Bay is now working with Universal to make Transformers - The Ride (a theme park ride for those who do not remember the announcement of this). Mr Bay had previously been against the idea.

TFW2005 report that Space Coast, Florida have updated their Twitter account with the following tweet regarding Transformers 3 "Transformers 3 to film on Florida's Space Coast! Filming to begin September 2010!". TFW then go on to report that the Brevard County Film Commissioner Bonnie King have told Central Florida on Demand that the filming will last about 8 days in early September. She says location scouts have visited the area for 2-3 days at a time, looking at other areas to shoot. Those include Patrick Air Force Base, Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville, Merritt Island Airport, Lone Cabbage Fish Camp in Cocoa, and a Cocoa beach house. Scouts also checked out some swamps and went into the woods.
What does this? Is there a chance we could be seeing characters like Astrotrain, Blast-Off or Omega Supreme in the third movie? Or does it mean that TF3 is going to be a live action version of Megatron's Master Plan? Think about. We've been told that there will be more Humans, we have already seen "Autobots, go home" graffiti and now word that they will be filming on the Space Coast. Add that with the "returning to the core mythos" and it it starts to look more like a possible premise for a third film. Of course this is just speculation on my part but it is early days so its fun to start building possible plots from what we've seen so far. Why not drop by our message board with your thoughts, or drop us a message on Twitter
If people thought the UK election resulted in mixed signals it has nothing on the Skids and Muflaps possible appearance in Transformers 3. First it was reported that they were in, then Michael Bay came out stating that they were not back for the third film, and now leftlanenews.com reports, with imags, that they are back in the third film!
"Sporting “Autobot” center caps on the wheels, these two vehicles
were captured doing some pre-production work before principal filming
starts in a few weeks. We think you are looking at Skidz (green) and
Skidz is looking much sportier than in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with new front and rear fascias, larger fenders, sportier wheels and a big wing. Mudflap was previously based on the Chevy Traxx concept, but for this installment, it appears both cars will be built off the Chevy Spark.
General Motors will once again be the main vehicle supplier for the latest Transformers movie, so expect to see several other GM-badged vehicles, including a black and yellow Chevy Camaro as Bumblebee."
Michael Bay has posted on his message board the comment "The Twins are not back in T3." as direct feedback to earlier reports that Mudflap and Skids were set to return in the third instalment of the live-action Transformers franchise.
Is Michael telling the truth of is this an attempt at misleading people, time will tell but due to the outcry at the characterisation of Skids and Mudflap in Revenge of the Fallen it was always likely that they would be "forgotten" for the third movie
Transformer fan Ben Brown has posted some ammature footage he recorded from the principle photography shoot that took place in Serman Oaks, California yesterday for Transformers 3. The scene being filmed was in downtown Los Angeles showing a car being thrown down the alley shortly after the Autobot Twins
cars had filmed a scene. Ben's blog post stated "Perched on the windowsill of the NeighborGoods
office, I recorded this awesome scene from the upcoming Transformers 3
movie. You can even hear Michael Bay yelling at people! We also
saw the Autobot “twins” zooming around. Apparently, one or both of them
will transform and beat the crap out of this tiny little car. Totally
Ben also posted two pictures from the set on his Flickr page that show a cross-out Autobot symbol and the phrase "Go Home", suggesting some anti-Autobot feeling from the humans.
A coworker of Ben's, mickipedia also filmed the scene at the same time but from a different angle which you can view below.

Note: A 'pre-vis' scene refers 'previsualization' filming. The advantage of previsualization is that it allows directors to experiment with different staging and art direction options such as lighting, camera placement and movement, stage direction and editing - without having to incur the costs of actual full-blown production filming."
The website goes on to report that
"The Transformers 3 is now in production and auditions for principal actors are taking place. Director Michael Bay has signed on to direct his third Transformers picture. Pre-shoots start April, 2010. The filming locations are set for Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow and China. Principal photography will run from May 17, 2010 through July 1, 2010. Release Date: July 1st, 2011.
See the post titled Headshot and Resume Information regarding how to submit for acting roles."
Though un-official the same site also lists the following under story:
"Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox return as Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes in "The Transformers 3". A darker more introspective journey into the Transformers universe and their origins on Cybertron. Peter Cullen also returns as the voice of Optimus Prime. This 3rd installment in the series "won’t be as robot-heavy and there will be fewer explosions, as the film gets more into the robot character. The last time (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) you kind of met a few of the robots. In 'The Transformers 3' you’re gonna get a much cooler landscape" according to director Michael Bay. There is also preview footage of the possibility of Unicron, the planet eater, in this sequel."
Months ago we reported that TakaraTomy were shifting their toy production factories away from China to Vietnam in order ot save money. Well it looks like they already have shifted some Transformers production as Actoys.net member feng423999 has a video (See below) along with some images of the upcoming Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Starscream figure, complete with "made in Vietnam stamp. As we previously commentated, its possible that when production fully shifts away form China, that this will result it less toys being leaked from the factories and appearing for sale, at least for a while.
