The blue-colored robot will possibly serve as a stand-in for a character that will be enlivened by CGI for some scenes in the upcoming action sci-fi movie.
As the production of "Transformers 3" is underway in several locations in the United States, some pictures of the Autobots have been found. Now, a reader of Ain't It Cool News (AICN) has sent a photo which allegedly was taken from the Chicago set and shows an unknown robot.
The robot which sports a dominant blue color is pictured inside what looks like a cargo with several crew members watching it. AICN suggests the robot is possibly a stand-in for a character that will be enlivened by CGI for the film.
"Transformers 3" will see two Autobots, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, getting makeovers. Director Michael Bay has also promised that the movie will feature action scenes shot in Chicago and Moscow, while Shockwave has been confirmed as the villain.
This third installment of "Transformers" film franchise has new leading lady Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who has been spotted on the set in Los Angeles earlier this month. Shia LaBeouf will reprise his role as Sam Witwicky in the upcoming action sci-fi, which will get 3-D treatment and is set for July 1, 2011 release in the U.S.
