Gravestone for Starscream in Chicago, Transformers 3, TF3 movie

Starscream, the great Decepticon warrior who always wanted to unseat his leader Megatron, was killed by the humans Sam Witwicky and soldier Lennox.

I made a tombstone for Starscream and placed it where he died--in the parking lot by the Gold Coast Dogs in Chicago's loop. BTW Gold Coast Dogs makes the best hot dogs ever--their char dog is the best.

The quote on his tombstone reads, "Conquest is made of the ashes of one's enemies." Rather ironic, wouldn't you say?
Gravestone for Sentinel Prime in Chicago, Transformers 3, TF3 movie

The great Sentinel Prime, the prime before Optimus Prime was killed by Megatron on the LaSalle Street Bridge in Chicago.

I made gravestone in honor of Sentinel Prime's death and placed it where he died--on the south side of the bridge. Most people pass by this gravestone and notice Megatron's further north on the bridge. I have plans on placing a Starscream tombstone in the loop.

Sentinel Prime's tombstone needed a stoic look to match his character. I went with a very upright serif font for his name (as opposed to the gothic look for Megatron). Even the tombston has a sort of upright looking feel to it. For most of his life, that's who Sentinel Prime was.
Gravestone for Megatron in Chicago, Transformers 3, TF3 movie

Megatron, leader of the Decepticons, was killed by Autobot leader Optimus Prime on the LaSalle Street Bridge in Chicago.

I made a tombstone for Megatron and placed it where he died--on the north side of the bridge. This is the tombstone that people notice. Sentinel Prime's gravestone is on the south end of the bridge. I have plans on placing a Starscream tombstone in the loop.

These Transformers almost died too easily. But that LaSalle Street Bridge was one of the best scenes ever in movie history. Man. Not only does Megatron join the cause with Optimus Prime and kill Sentinel Prime, but then Optimus returns the favor by knocking off Megatron--by ripping off his head!

I like the text on Megatron's tombstone. The strong Gothic face for his name, and then the decorative script for his stat card quote. "Peace through tryanny."
Transformer tombstones

I make gravestones for the Transformers that died in the movie Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, and then I place them in the exact places where they died in Chicago.
