Some guy snuck onto the Transformers 3 set and snapped off a bunch of pictures. This one immediately caught my eye. I actually noticed the AFG's before I realized they were attached to ACR's. It also looks like one of the M4-type rifles (top of the stack) doesn't even have an opening at the muzzle, it's completely solid - it must be a complete beater/prop weapon that only appears in far off shots.

Anyway, there are a bunch of really nice shots of the set as well and apparently the dude just wandered in off the streets using the ol' "I belong here" attitude. Awesome.

Met a guy in Burbank a couple of years ago in the business of supplying movie weapons. He had a warehouse full of all kinds of stuff. Old muskets, contemporary stuff, cannons, all kinds of bladed weapons.........if anyone remembers the Gatling guns used in the 'Last Samurai', they came from him. He had them sitting right there, just as pristine as could be. He showed me the internal BFA's that he has to install in the weapons that are to be fired. He had stinger missiles, RPG's, TOW missile systems..........if you've seen it in a movie, he had it.

I'm pretty sure those are all rubber ducks. If you look closely, you can see the M16 with the ACOG has no bore.

The sound stages and area where they do the majority of the filming on all the Transfomer movies is actually not that hard to find and get into. The company I'm with did alot of work on the site and we still do. I remember being on site one Saturday when they blew up the top of building set where Shia is being chased by Megatron for the cube. That was loud and real fun to watch.

Yup no reason to give somebody an expensive piece of equipment when they are just background filler.

Looks like a pile of rubber guns from ISS...

The fact that they're laying out in the open and can be approached by someone off the street pretty much screams "rubber gun"... a real one would be under lock and key.

Real ACOG would cost more than the rubber gun?

Don't recall his name. I met him through an associate of mine.

I remember the guy talking about getting out of his business. He mentioned how a lot of production studios are filming overseas because of costs and depending on the country, it is extremely difficult (expensive) to get customs issues worked out when shipping equipment like that into another country.

Uh oh! It's going to be a tough sell to get me to that movie if there is no M.F. teaser T&A in it... that is unless they replaced her with Jessica Alba!

I want a couple of those rubber guns to make a sweet wall decoration out of. Some ideas flew into my mind when I saw them :chris:

I'm guessing his name was either Paul or George... I know exactly what armory you're talking about. He did end up closing shop a few years back, and the entire stock has since been absorbed by ISS.

That's really saying something when Megan Fox can be replaced by an underwear model...
