ILM Builds the Bots for IMAX Shots in Transformers Sequel

ILM built the models in the new Transformers movie to withstand scrutiny in IMAX theaters.  The process, with all of the gory details, is cataloged over at StudioDaily.

There’s a sequence in DreamWorks/Paramounts’ Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in which the Devastator, a gigantic Decepticon robot, scales an Egyptian pyramid as easily as a gorilla climbing a tree and rips off the top. With over 52,632 parts and nearly 12 million polygons, the robot is the biggest model Industrial Light & Magic has built in its 30 years of model-making. And they built the bot for IMAX shots.
