And flip cars it does as it barrels through the staged arrangement of two vehicles, sending them in to the air! presumably the Baybuster is later left on the cutting room floor, but at least in this video, it gets its fifteen minutes of fame.

The Transformers Movie Facebook page has posted a new video today featuring Sir Anthony Hopkins. Captioned, "Sir Anthony, what is it like working on Transformers?", he goes on to describe the pleasure of working for a director like Michael Bay, commenting specifically on how Bay has everything already planned and laid out in his mind - a common statement from those who've worked with him - and speaking well of Bay's tendency to keep things moving and not waste any time. The video is about a minute long, and ends with Anthony Hopkins hoping all us "kids" in the fandom will enjoy the movie. Check it out embedded below!
ComingSoon.net has reported on more of the filming for The Last Knight
in London. Most recently they were shooting in the vicinity of Buckingham Palace, with the Bumblebee vehicle and Hot Rod's Lamborghini Centenario vehicle prop taking the main stage, but it seems the new Barricade police car was also making the rounds during part of this filming. The movie shoot has certainly created a stir in England of late, and it looks like they're not letting anyone forget Transformers is still in the neighborhood! You can see some of the photos and a link to the article below.

is missing, meaning Grapple's sporting a lot of new pieces! Also shown were UW-EX Megatronia, a bit of Transformers Adventure, and a full page on the Diaclone Reboot power suits - click through to take a look!
