Transformers Interviews

Conventions Center
Once again this year, I had the opportunity to chat with John Warden and Ben Montano from the Hasbro Transformers team and pick their brains about both the newly revealed things this weekend, but also burning questions that we've been saving up for just such an occasion! We'd like to extend a huge thanks to the guys from Hasbro for taking time to talk with us both on-and-off camera this weekend at Botcon! And you can click the title link now to check out our interview video embedded below.
Transformers 5
International Business Times reports that Robert Kirkman, creator of popular zombie-encrusted soap opera The Walking Dead, has opened up on the reasons why he was only in the Transformers Cinematic Universe's Writers' Room for a single day. It's related to the health issues that kept him out of last year's San Diego Comic-Con for the first time in 10 years. Keep reading for further details and a video of Kirkman responding to the question.
Transformers 5
Transformers 5 director Michael Bay recently sat down with Collider to talk about his latest movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi that will be coming to theaters next weekend. The interview is pretty much focused on the new movie, but we do get some comments from Bay on what's in the works for Transformers 5 and the recent developments with the Writers Room. According to Bay, we may be seeing some historical elements and or smaller productions.
Generations
After the pre-Toy Fair 2016 preview, the Hasbro design team for Transformers was kind enough as to answer some questions for us! RAC was there to ask questions of Jerry Jivoin, John Warden, Sean C. Isabella, and Ben Montano, and we've got all the answers here! Click through to see it all!
Generations
Comic Book Resources has interviewed Mairghread Scott & Corin Howell about the post-Combiner Wars IDW universe, Windblade, the Combiner Hunters one-shot, and much more!

TFW2005 forum member Deruji has posted a translation of the interview with Devastator designer Shogo Hasui in this month's Figure-Oh(Figure King) magazine! Within, we learn a lot in interesting things - the most notable of them being that the modern vehicle types like Mixmaster's were Hasbro's idea, and that the differences between Combiner Wars and Unite Warriors Devastator are, as we all guessed, a result of making the US figure fit a certain price point. Read on for an excerpt and a link to the full interview!
Generations

TFW2005 user SidneyY has posted a translated interview with TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki, who talks at length about the decisions that went into Superion and why Takara's version has different deco and has reintroduced Slingshot to the team. He also talks about the Japanese Legends line and his hope to create new products for it now that all of Generations will be shunted into Unite Warriors. And of course he talks about MP-24 Masterpiece Star Saber, and how it was engineered to use as little paint as possible to avoid chipping on the complex toy.

Ben Yee of BWTF got the opportunity to sit down with Transformers Senior Brand Director Jerry Jivoin at Toy Fair, and they talked about Combiner Wars, how it came about, and how the decisions were made.

The Japan Times has published an article about Age of Extinction, its Japanese connections, and the samurai-inspired changes to the character designs.
