Transformers 5 The Last Knight
China Celebrates 10 Years Of Transformers; The Last Knight Toyline Chinese Street Date Revealed
RAC - Thursday, April 20, 2017


The 7th Beijing International Film Festival is underway in China, and Paramount was there to promote Transformers: The Last Knight! In the process of doing so, China.org reports, Paramount Chairman Jim Gianopulos and President of Worldwide Marketing Megan Colligan revealed the location for an upcoming 10th Anniversary Celebration as well as the Chinese street date for the TF5 toyline. Keep reading for more info!
The 6 million votes in an online poll pointed to the city of Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, as the location to mark the anniversary, unveiled Jim Gianopulos, the new Paramount Pictures chairman, and Megan Colligan, the president of Paramount's worldwide marketing and distribution at a press conference held during the 7th Beijing International Film Festival.

Colligan thanked Chinese fans' support for the franchise as the previous four installments grossed 3.8 billion yuan (US$551.84 million) in China. The fourth installment, shot partly in China and starring Chinese star Han Geng and Li Bingbing, raked in 1.97 billion yuan (US$320 million) and was once the biggest grossing film ever in China until it was dethroned by later films like "Furious 7" and "Mermaid."

The worldwide total of the franchise reached US$3.8 billion.

Megan Colligan also revealed an exclusive long trailer of the new installment, "Transformers: The Last Knight," in front of Chinese press members and guests, featuring a typical Michael Bay styled explosion and robots fight on a grand scale. The new film will arrive in June alongside its brand new edition of Hasbro toys which will hit the market since April 28.


The Transformers: The Last Knight toyline hits US toystores this Monday, April 24th, with the film following on June 23rd. Paramount's presence at the Beijing festival would seem to assuage fears that distribution of the film would be impeded by financial troubles on the part of the Chinese distributor of previous films.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
Furio Tedeschi has posted to his Facebook page, sharing a high res image of his concept for Optimus Primal for The Last Knight. Of course this idea never made it in the final film, which just invites all sort of speculation as to what stage of development this existed in and what context it might have been intended for use. However, short of a comprehensive behind the scenes guide book to the movie, which seems just a bit unlikely, we'll probably never get to find out these answers. But it's still fun to look at the pictures! Click through for the full resolution image.
Paramount Home Media Distribution has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray 3D Blu-ray and Blu-ray director Michael Bay's blockbuster's Transformers: The Last Knight. The groundbreaking adventure will also be available as part of the Transformers' 5-Movie Blu-ray Collection. All four releases will be available for purchase on September 26.
Coming to us from Kevin Liu, we've got our first look in video at the Deluxe Cogman figure from The Last Knight. This video covers transformation from car to robot, which has a couple of unexpected turns along the way that make the process look interesting to do. And of course we get good overviews of both modes as well as a quick showing of some alternate head choices on Cogman's "transtector". The video is in Chinese, but it's a great look at the toy. You can find it embedded in the full post below!
From chuckdawg1999 on our forums, we have a look at Wave 3's brand new Deluxe Bumblebee. While Chuck highlights the relative smallness of the robot mode (and bad use of packaging space in the Premier Edition boxes) what really seems to stand out is the involved transformation from car to robot as demonstrated in this video. You can check it out yourself, click through now to watch the video embedded below!
Thanks to the Toy People blog, we've got a really nice quick photo shoot of Cogman from the Premier Edition lineup. By all indications, Cogman is likely to be the last new Deluxe in the lineup for The Last Knight, which honestly doesn't make good odds for helpful distribution. But there will be a TakaraTomy option for this figure which while more expensive, may be a more sure way to get this figure. And you can check out the mirrored photos from Toy People below to help you decide if the effort or potential extra cost to obtain Cogman will be worthwhile!
