The official Hasbro YouTube channel has posted a new Transformers Designer Desk video for Transformers: The Last Knight
Premier Edition Leader Class Megatron! John Warden demonstrates the figure's full range of articulation, as well as showing off the cool sword and the battle mask gimmick. It's a fun-looking toy! Keep reading to see the video, and some outtakes from Warden at the end.
On the Youtube channel "Comic Book Movie" we can see a quick clip showing some behind the scenes work from Transformers The Last Knight
as one of the movie's Merlin scenes is being filmed, intercut with comments from the screenwriter about casting Stanley Tucci for the role. And sure enough we are shown the crew - Michael Bay included - having trouble containing themselves at the somewhat unconventional take on King Arthur's Wizard. You can find the clip embedded below.
One more video from our Hascon VIP Dinner Event reporter, Eric Crownover. He captured the special presentation videos shown before the Hall of Fame inductions of Susan Blu and movie series producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. One was a minutes-long collection of congratulations and well wishes from celebrities and notable individuals in the world of movies, the other was 30 seconds of Arcee clips. We'll let you sort out which presentation went with which person, and then you can click through to watch the video embedded below!
Eric Crownover covered the VIP Dinner Event at Hascon this past weekend for us, and along with the panel reports and toy reveal images, he also brought us some quick video clips from presentations during the event. First up we have a tribute to the tenth anniversary of the Transformers movie series, acting as a quick retrospective of the movies - which also probably served as a decent warm-up for the Hall of Fame induction of movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura! You can find the video embedded in the post below.
Thanks to RFC's diecast, we've got a quick video on his RFC Reviews channel showing the Power of The Primes toys on display during Hascon. One detail visible in this video that seems to have largely been overlooked is an Enigma of Combination
shown at Grimlock's feet. Like the various forms of Matrix included with Leader toys, the Engimas are the special accessory component for the Voyager figures that within the function are what permit them to combine with the Deluxes. You can find the video embedded below, and a screenshot showing the Enigma. Keep reading!
Thanks to Unicron.com, any of us that didn't make the trip to Hascon this weekend can now check out the Prime Wars Trilogy panel in video form on Facebook. This panels covers aspects of design in the toys, toy packaging, the current mobile games, and Machinima's efforts in bringing entries of this trilogy to animation, and that includes a look at the Titans Return series they'll be debuting in November. You can find the panel video embedded below!
Thanks again to Unicron.com for sharing more video from Hascon 2017. The Making of The Last Knight and other Transformers films. Hascon Panel w/ Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner, film producers Lorenzo DiBoniventura, Actress Isabella Moner and Mark Wahlberg who makes an appearance later in the panel.
Thanks to Unicron.com we have a look at the HasCon Peter Cullen and Frank Welker panel from the convention. Check out what makes these two guys some of the greatest cartoon voices we know from Transformers and so many other properties.
Thanks to a video by YouTuber maxlovesamber
, we can say that the answer is yes!
PC-16 Jinrai Prime can be combined with all three versions of the Titans Return
Leader Powermaster Optimus Prime/Legends Series LG35 Super Ginrai/Siege on Cybertron Leader Magnus Prime without the Powermaster and new head added by the Perfect Effect PC-15 set! It's not perfect, and requires some partsforming as Max demonstrates, but at least you can do it. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to YouTuber Ancient Robot, we have two new videos showing us new Transformers: The Last Knight Official TV Spots.
Get a look at the toy commercials for the Mega Turbo Changer Dragonstorm as well as the AllSpark Tech toys that are just hitting stores now.
Watch them both after the jump.
Imagine unleashing the power of multiple Transformers figures at once to create a single awesome Team Combiner super robot figure! Team Combiner multi-figure packs feature Autobot or Decepticon teams from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series.
Stunts are dangerous. Very frequently, the stars of the movie are not let anywhere near the most difficult and life-threatening of them all. But this doesn't seem to be the case for Optimus Prime and Dragonstorm, who charge face-first into a volley of flying rocks. Megatron, though? He has a better idea... keep reading to see the short!
YouTube channel Ancient Robot
has posted a new ad for the Robots In Disguise
Team Combiners. Sporting new CG of Ultra Bee combining to do battle with Menasor, the 15-second spot shows off both toys - though sadly, not Galvatronus. Keep reading to see the spot!
If you ever wanted to see just how talented scratch-builders and prop and model makers were, we have an example that's both impressive and Transformers-relevant for you today. Odin Makes on Youtube has a new episode featuring the classic Matrix of Leadership, showing (more or less) each step along the way in going from basic materials to finished, painted, light-up Autobot Plot Device - and it takes less than 15 minutes to get there! ...Unless you're Odin and then it probably actually took many labor-hours. Check out the video embedded below to see the process and results!
With the significant differences between Hasbro and TakaraTomy versions of both Metroplex and Fortress Maximus - oh and of course can't forget the Devastators! -, many have been wondering just what to expect with the Japanese release of Trypticon. While clearly nowhere near as different as the prior Titans, photos at least let people identify where different shades of colors had been used, right? To settle the question, Trevor Hopkins put a video on Youtube that explains all of what's different, and how much is in fact the same. Click through to see that video and find out the relevant details!
Autobase Aichi has posted a pair of new TV spots for Transformers: The Last Knight
's more kid-oriented products! They've got ads for the Allspark Tech line, showing the electronic cube in action, as well as Mega Turbo Changer Dragonstorm, or as the announcer says it, "Megaturbochangerdragon Storm"
. Keep reading to see part of what will likely be the last push for TF5 merchandise as we head up to the home video release!
We'll be coming back to the SDCC exclusives
shortly. But before that, I wanted to share the unboxing of Siege on Cybertron, the second Titans Return box set that we've all been eagerly anticipating. It just came in this week at BigBadToyStore
, which when combined with the SDCC exclusives dropping made this a potentially very expensive week! Check out the unboxing video embedded below.
Hasbro was excellent enough to send us over a very large box filled with a number of the exclusive items they had on offer at SDCC and just this week on Hasbro Toy Shop for us to check out. We'll be working on bringing you coverage of these items very soon, but in the meantime you can find out just what all we received by checking out the unboxing video I shot as I cracked in to the shipping carton. And let me tell you, there was no wasted space in that box! That video is embedded below, and be sure to watch for more coverage on these items coming up!
