The ILMVisualFX Youtube channel has posted a new behind the scenes video talking about the development of Lockdown's ship, which they call the "Knightship" in this video. They discuss some of the early concepts Michael Bay brought to ILM that shaped the development and some of the goals they had in creating the major set piece for the movie. One fact represented in the description but not the video itself was that this took the record for highest complexity model previously held by Shockwave's worm-drillers in Dark of The Moon.

The latest episode of the QTransformers animation is up on YouTube! There's... not a lot to recommend this one to non-speakers of Japanese unless you like watching Autobots fantasize about a bird pooping on a person, and the person then being hit by a meteor. But if you want to puzzle over that
one, keep reading to see!
The second super-chatty episode of the QTransformers animation has hit YouTube! The episode is titled "Mystery of Reliable Kusoge" - "Kusoge" is a Japanese gaming term that is more or less shorthand for "crappy game," and Mystery of Convoy definitely applies. In the episode, Optimus Prime suggests the alternate designation of "Murige" - "Impossible game" - citing games like Ghosts N' Goblins/Ghouls N' Ghosts as (animated!) examples.

The official Michael Bay Dot Com Vimeo channel has been updated with a new behind the scenes production video titled: "Transformers 4: Bay On Action." Following "The Final Touches" video clip, this one continues with the Bay working behind the scenes on the fourth, and said to be last of the Transformers movies he directs. Read on to watch now.
The official ILMVisualFX Youtube channel has posted a new video featuring ILM’s visual effects work for Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’. See a prevideo of what is said to represent a fraction of the work created by over 400 artists, scientists, and engineers working with a world-class production team. Including the film’s Visual Effects Supervisor, Scott Farrar, who was honored with the Hollywood Visual Effects Award on November 14, 2014.
Michael Bay's website has posted a video titled "The Finishing Touches," showing Bay and company going through their last pass on Age of Extinction. Among the sights to see are Bay's "Editorial Symposium," a collection of editors and others who discuss the scenes with Bay to see how to best trim unnecessary footage. Keep reading to see!
Michael Bay's official account has posted a 10-minute outtake reel to Vimeo! Plenty of behind-the-scenes action to be seen, along with a couple of cameras falling victim to the master of explosions. Also notable: Kelsey Grammer covered in blood and ash, saying "I was this
close!" Keep reading to see it for yourself!
CinemaSins has posted the latest installment in their "Everything Wrong With) series, covering Transformers: Age of Extinction... and it's a two-part video clocking in at a total of 32 minutes. For comparison, the first Amazing Spider-Man film took them all of two minutes.
Somehow Toy Story took them ten, so we may be looking at some editorial bloat as time goes on, but still... 32 minutes. Keep reading to see!
The official Transformers Facebook have posted a new video that takes a behind-the-scenes look at Jack Reynor’s stunt driving in Transformers: Age of Extinction. Get a look at what the actor did to prepare for the movie by spending hours and hours behind the wheel learning to drive fast, skid, drift and all kinds of moves that were used in the movie.
I said yesterday that we love good stop motion, and it didn't take long before another found its way to us. In Prime's Rage, Optimus faces off against mostly human military forces trying to block his escape from a city of cardboard. Stop motion is a time consuming art, and it's always a treat to see a finished work realized this well. Click through and check out the embedded video!
Honest Trailers has covered Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, and it's a pretty fair representation of the movie's contents, i.e. not positive. If you haven't seen the movie yet, some of the content being satirized is stunningly awful, and this may save you $20. Also, be warned that there is some bleeped-but-captioned swearing, so this may be NSFW. Keep reading to see the video!
The Official Transformers YouTube Channel has posted a short video featuring Kreon Optimus Prime and Bumblebee recapping the first three Transformers films, complete with interjections by Megatron and extremely tongue-in-cheek demonstrations of some of the trilogy's most memorable set pieces. If this were Hasbro's stealth pilot for a Kre-O Transformers video game, I'd be intrigued. Keep reading to see the video!
Hollywood is a strange place where guys like Micheal Bay create movies about nothing and everything. Here, is yet another off the cuff idea being painted onto the Transformers Age of Extinction movie. This one tries to explain how some of the movies elements, such as Prime riding Grimlock, are based on classic Western movies...Ohhhkay. Read on to watch the clip now, but keep your pistols drawn just in case Bay pulls another fast one on us.
Rovio has posted another preview video for Angry Birds Transformers, this time displaying Chuck in his finest Bumblebee cosplay. And hey, at least he's doing the running man instead of the robot. (They did the obvious joke already) Keep reading to see the video!
Clearly taking its cues from Age of Extinction, the first Decepticon spotlight video for Angry Birds Transformers is Foreman Pig in the role of Lockdown. We hadn't seen official character art for him previously, instead seeing Megatron (pictured). The game is due for release on October 15th, but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the video!
