Transformers 3 Set Pics: New Megatron, Nascar Wreckers Attack

I always knew there was something fishy about all those NASCAR cars just going around in circles for, like, what, two hours or something? There’s something wrong there, kids. Turns out, there’s a reason: they’re all secretly fighting robots from outer space! Or at least, they are in Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, his third installment in the fighting robots from outer space movie. Check out set pics of an Autobot “Wrecker” (above), supposedly part of an “an elite commando unit” of the good guys, and what that bad boy Megatron (below) is currently looking like nowadays. Hint: he’s still not a cool looking gun, alas. Imagine a huge friggin’ robot transforming into a huge friggin’ alien looking gun? I know, wouldn’t make a lick of sense, but then again, who cares?

Starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Frances McDormand, Alan Tudyk, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Frank Welker, James Avery, Peter Cullen, and directed by Michael Bay.
