Transformers 2 On Set At Princeton University

Mark@princeton, a fellow Transformers fan, just sent us not only pictures but also some videos from the set of Transformers 2, aka Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen, currently at Princeton University, New Jersey.

"This was from a shoot on Monday, at the corner of Washington Rd and William St, in Princeton NJ, right outside Green Hall. Pics and videos were taken from the 2nd floor windows of Green Hall. They did a few ftakes of the silver car driving up the road and swerving from cars with Megan's stunt double driving, and Shia in the passenger seat. They also set up a fake lamp post and had a stunt driver crash into it, but I missed that. You will see video of the camera go-cart thingie driving in circles and going right up to the lamp post to simulate the crash. They were at differenct campus locations yesterday (tues) as well, but I didn't catch any of it on film. I'm not sure if they're around here today."

First some pictures of Transformers 2 Revenge Of The Fallen:

And in bonus a few behind-the-scenes clips of Transformers 2:

Shia Labeouf who is in the car is attacked by a robot in the clip above, but don't worry, he finds a way to escape:

Is the blue corvette GTO the alt mode of Stinger?

Don't know for you but I would love to drive the black car used for filming: looks like a lot of fun...

And thumbs up for mark@princeton!

Most definitely is not a Corvette. It's a GTO.

It's a Vauxhall Astra, Or an Opel Astra as they call it in the U.S.

My mistake, it's not Opel in the U.S, it's Saturn, so the car is a Saturn Astra!!

The GTO is an Australian built, Aussie HSV.
It's been renamed pontic for the USA market.
It's a totally awesome car.
We Aussie's have got great taste with our cars. :)

In Italy it's an Opel Astra.
Anyway, we're all talking about a General Motor's vehicle

I'm guessing by the shape and color that it is the chevy volt which has already been confirmed as a blue Transfomer named jolt in the new film.
