Chicago is BURNING!!! Transformers 3 teaser trailer hits the Super Bowl with a bang

Transformers 3 dark of the moon decepticon warships attack chicago

Oh dear God it's more beautiful than I could've ever imagined!

Chicagoans aren’t the only ones upset with the race for our next mayor, the Decepticons are taking matters into their own hands this Summer! That’s right folks, the latest teaser trailer for Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon has hit the web! Check it out in High Def at michaelbay.com.

Just like with Revenge of the Fallen’s initial trailer, it was revealed in the form of a 30-second Superbowl advertisement and it did NOT disappoint!  We were treated to a lush canvas of beautiful Chicago being completely DESTROYED by what appears to be a very significant invasion by Decepticon forces, expected to be lead by Shockwave himself.  This stuff is just MEAN!!  The HANCOCK BUILDING IS ON FIRE!!!  Many Chicago landmarks are plainly visible and will most likely be called out by name.  Check out the video below with annotations enabled to get a good feel for which areas of the city are featured in the quick 30-second snippit.

Some of the more notable details from the trailer are as follows:

– Optimus Prime retains what appears to be Jetfire’s corpse parts, and then immediately disposed of them after hitting the ground.

Ye' olde Jetpack!

– Repurposed Decepticon frames will be showing up again, most likely as cannon fodder including Brawl, Blackout / Grindor, Long Haul and BARRICADE!.

– A bird-like Decepticon appears, who is most definitely one of Soundwave’s minions and it can be inferred that this create is LASERBEAK!

Laserbeak, report!

– A half-dozen Decepticon warships are hovering around Chicago with a multitude of smaller flying attackers. It is not clear whether these are actual Transformers or separate vehicles driven by Transformers inside.

All in all, I CANNOT wait to see Chicago get blown to bits on the big screen in Imax! I will be there opening night for sure! Get your tickets while you can!!!

Transformers 3 trailer buzz brings down Michaelbay.com, Apple?

Michaelbay.com down for launch of Transformers 3 announcement trailer

Nothing to see here folks, nothing at all!

So first we were told the trailer was coming at 4 PM EST. Unfortunately someone, probably the webmaster, forgot to double-check his notes and suddenly had to change the announcement to read 4 PM PST once he saw a huge spike in traffic. How do I know it saw a huge spike? I refreshed repeatedly around 4PM EST only to be greeting with a plethora of site errors typically found when a site is seeing incredibly high traffic spikes. CSS was failing to load and even 504 errors were spat out at times.

3 hours later, we are at the same place! I still have yet to see the trailer fifteen minutes in and MIchael Bay’s precious site is a disaster. I only bring this up because I know the trials and tribulations of running a pop-culture related site that can unexpected quintuple it’s usual traffic load at any time.

Michael Bay's site sluggish due to Transformers 3 trailer

Hey that doesn't look quite right!

Even Apple seems to be having problems with the trailer, as the announcement and trailer page are live but the video is nowhere to be found… I guess the crushing masses of Transformer Fans have made themselves heard once again!
