Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Ding Dong The Writer's Room Is Dead, Akiva Jets, and the Bayhem Got Away
BaCon - Wednesday, August 02, 2017


It is about time all those axes swinging around "Transformers: The Last Knight" lobbed off some heads. in this case, those of Akiva Goldsman, and the Writer's Room altogether according to Forbes magazine. Apparently, the fans were not the only ones pointing fingers after "The Last Knight" failed to impress USA movie goers. Even though it managed to keep slowly building what is a not bad $500+ million box office take that many films could only dream about - heads rolled.
So it comes as no surprise that the writers room isn’t coming back, and neither is Akiva Goldsman. Well, as ridiculous as the idea was, Hasbro certainly gets points for trying. It’s not their fault that their aging toy franchises have no creative value whatsoever. The only movie based on a toy line that managed to be truly good was The Lego Movie, and that’s because the very essence of Lego is to follow your imagination.

But it wasn’t all a disaster; the writers room was apparently responsible for Travis Knight’s upcoming Bumblebee spin-off, which sounds weirdly … well, good. Bumblebee will be set in the eighties and is described as a coming of age film, which, in a sense, returns Transformers to its roots. The original film was about a boy getting his first car, and his first girlfriend. It was cute and relatable, and the only film in the franchise that had anything resembling a soul.

While this is very likely welcome news to some, it is too easy to make them the scapegoats. While I admit I am glad to see something else, I have to wonder if the stakeholders simply made all the same mistakes all over again by not giving fans what they have been asking for since the Bayhem started.

While Forbes wants to attribute the so-called spin-off as the Writer's Room saving grace. I doubt many are buying into the idea that a movie with fewer robots, that proposes to explore the back story of these Transforming beings from Cybertron. Is going to connect the dots any better than the past puzzles we have been left with before.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
Twitter user Tagoal has posted some images of the Transformers: The Last Knight Optimus Prime Clear Version that was released recently to coincide with TF5's Japanese home video debut! Sporting a lot of clear white and blue plastic, this is the Voyager mold available on shelves now (still) in the Premier Edition. It's kind of a shame that basically every version of this mold looks more appealing than the stock retail release, but even that one is a pretty nice toy in and of itself.

A recent feature list on the online version of Rolling Stone sought to line up the ten worst films of 2017, Many choices seemed quite fitting, with few at least marginally surprising even just for where they scored on the list, if not their presence there to start with. But it's probably not that much of a leap that they gave the number one spot on the list to none other than Transformers: The Last Knight. While some fans might point to it as being on the better end of the series, that speaks very little for its quality in the larger arena of movies in general. Keep reading for a quick excerpt and link back to the Rolling Stone page.
From the website of artist Furio Tedeschi we have some new pieces of The Last Knight concept art from various stages of design. What made this latest batch stand out as interesting was how a number of pieces, such as some of the knight designs, showed clear traces of what would go in to the toyline, possibly marking a few of these pieces as part of the starting point for the design of things like Dragonstorm. Another treat is a few photos of those knight designs as physical set elements from the sound stages - parts of which I personally got to view up close in August of 2016! Keep reading to take a look through the mirrored images!
Paramount Home Media Distribution today unveiled a free augmented reality experience for iOS app users, coinciding with the release of Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD. Created by Viacom’s VR team Viacom NEXT using Apple ARKit technology, the app incorporates content from the latest film in the blockbuster series, Transformers: The Last Knight.
Greg "M Sipher" Sepelak reported on Twitter that he found two of the presumed-Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight "Autobots Unite" Two-Packs on sale at Ross! For those not familiar with the chain, Ross is one of a number of discount store chains in the US - along with TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and Ollie's - where Transformers items show up with a certain regularity. If you see them, a pair of Legion class figures will run you $5, and a pair of Turbo Changers will run you $12. Keep reading for the photographic proof, mirrored here for convenience.
