Today's new video from the Transformers Movie Facebook page shows off one of the tools of the trade, when one's trade involves shooting sequences in settings that can spin and tumble. No, it probably isn't going to be inside a giant Cybertronian washing machine - or is it?
- but at least one sequence has required Mark Wahlberg and Laura Haddock to endure some time in the "Room Roll" cage to get that realistic effect of being sent flying when your floor is suddenly your ceiling. We have the video embedded below, so check it out!
It's Michael Bay and company's last day filming in the UK for Transformers: The Last Knight,
and he's streaming live to mark the occasion! No way to know what he has planned, but he promises surprises, so click through to watch!
It is unusual for a Hasbro Designer Desk video to spotlight a Masterpiece figure - not least of which because MPs tend to be projects initiated by TakaraTomy. But because of that, this Masterpiece Bumblebee episode of Transformers Designer Desk has a very special guest star, Mr. Shogo Hasui! Keep reading to see the video!
A new video from the Transformers Movie Facebook page shows something of a quick highlight reel of the UK filming, with a large group of military personnel being staged and charging up a hill, while a camera helicopter covers the action and Michael Bay calls all the shots on his megaphone. Josh Duhamel and Santiago Cabrera can be seen prominently in one brief shot during the clip among the uniformed personnel. Keep reading to check it out embedded below!
In the continuation of one of the most amazing discoveries in our fandom, Transformers At The Moon has released the contents of another audio tape of previously unheard dialogue from the G1 cartoon. This installment covers all of More Than Meets The Eye part 2, with the new content running around five minutes in total. There aren't any fully new scenes discovered, but some are expanded quite a bit versus the TV broadcast. And once again we've put together stills from the aired episode the lend context to the various snippets of audio. Keep reading for that and the embedded video!
From Wanna-Hobby we have a neat video clip to share. We learned a while back that Masterpiece Inferno manages to hide the firetruck ladder by packing it in the robot's torso, and while that seems like a good engineering job just from a basic description, it turns out it didn't truly sell the magic. This video shows the entire process of ladder (and some other bits of firetruck) collapsing away to fit in to a much tinier volume than they began. It's a really fantastic process to see, and you can check it out yourself in the embedded video below!
Transformers@TheMoon has posted their final tape from the very first episode of The Transformers,
"More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1"! This one is a bit light on new material, but we do get more of voice director Wally Burr directing "body english" takes! This isn't the last of TF@TM's material, but they've finally reached the end of the first third
of the 1984 premiere. Click through to listen!
Thanks to the fine folks at ASM
, we have a pair of quick videos demonstrating the newly revealed Combiner Force sets from Robots in Disguise. The two packs feature a pair of figures that combine top to bottom to make a larger robot, much like Transformers Energon, but now with fun automorph style features that engage when the toys are connected together. The first videos shows the combination, and the second shows an individual figure being posed. Both are embedded, so click through to take a look!
Transformers@TheMoon continues its exploration of a collection of audio cassettes containing dialogue from the G1 cartoon! Today they're focusing on "body english" - grunts of exertion and pain and other basic sounds needed to accompany action scenes. (There's also a single example of mild profanity from Chris Latta, in case you're listening to this in a work environment.) We also get to hear voice director Wally Burr forget Megatron's name - but bear in mind this is from everyone's first day of work. Click through to hear the audio!
Transformers@TheMoon has posted the third installment in their collection of Sunbow G1 Audio tapes! We're still in the midst of the very first episode, "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1," and we've got another round of deleted scenes! Judging from Chris Latta's performance as Starscream on some of these lines, you get the feeling that it was known some of this material would probably not be used... then again, one of the tapes is labeled "Day 1," so it could simply be that he was still feeling out the character. Click through to hear the audio!
Transformers At The Moon is continuing with the amazing work of digitizing the contents of a cache of old production audio cassettes from the Generation 1 cartoon, featuring never before heard audio of scenes that didn't make the final broadcast episodes. In the second such installment, we have more from part 1 of More Than Meets The Eye, featuring extended versions of familiar scenes, and one that was removed entirely! We've taken some screencaps from the episode to help you establish context, check them out while you listen to the clips, embedded below!
Entertainment Tonight has posted a brief segment with actor Josh Duhamel on location in London for the shooting of Transformers: The Last Knight!
Duhamel has nothing but praise both for director Michael Bay and co-star Mark Wahlberg, who apparently gets up at 3AM every day for a morning workout and a round of speed golf. This is a celebrity news show, so don't expect too
much info on the film itself- but there are a few brief on-set shots to be had. Keep reading to see!
As has been known to happen, Terebi
(TV) Magazine is offering a special limited-edition EZ Collection figure with this month's issue! The YouTube channel Kids' BonBon
has posted a video showing off the Legion-scaled figure, including how to transform it (and how not
to). Keep reading to see the video!
Transformers At The Moon
has acquired a real piece of Transformers history: original audio tapes of the dialogue tracks for the G1 cartoon! That in and of itself would be notable, but there are also deleted scenes on these tapes! TF@TM has put up a video of an excerpt from "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1" featuring heretofore unheard dialogue between Bumblebee and Ratchet, among others. All this, and you get to hear legendary voice director Wally Burr at work too. Keep reading to hear!

The Transformers Movie Facebook page has posted a new video today, showing off the stunt vehicle referred to as the "Baybuster". A vehicle chase sequence is shown as part of the set up in the clip, then the Baybuster gets introduced, and its design explained: It's perfect for precisely flipping cars! 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.
