From NOTRAB we have a curious photo showing two unknown items. More prominently is an Optimus Prime - which is the Leader Class toy from the 2007 movie line. This features chrome as well as a deco that's not consistent with any prior release of this mold, most notably lacking the orange fade on the truck nose typical of this toy. But what this mysterious new old Optimus is sitting on is some sort of Bumblebee box set. What's up with that? Keep reading for more details!
The British Board of Film Classification has classified two
new Transformers The Last Knight trailers today: one, the trailer we just linked to,
and the other an as-yet unknown 61-second trailer. Is this the original Kids' Choice Awards trailer that the new trailer expands on, or something else entirely? Keep reading to see the BBFC's classification data!
TFW2005 has posted a couple of stories today with some interesting insights into the impending Transformers: The Last Knight
toyline! Most notably, they've now posted (fully-codenamed) case breakdowns for Wave 1 of the toyline! Using this info, they're suggesting that Barricade
is the character code-named "Mars," and that Bumblebee
is codename "Saturn." Keep reading for more info and our analysis of the situation!
So yesterday, ExVee suggested that we may get an entire preview wave
based on the Premier Edition packaging also being used for Deluxe Barricade. But I have a different theory, and I believe - based on a combination of what we know from various toy listings and good old-fashioned pedantry about the English language - that I can back it up. Keep reading for some toy detective work!
Tyreese Gibson, who played Sgt Epps in the first Transformers movie. Has taken to his Facebook account with a recent comment that he is close to sharing some good news. Following up with the statement that he loves that the fans have been calling for his return.
Ever since the announcement of Josh Duhmel who played his co-hort as Sgt Lennox would be in Transformers 5, Tyreese has been publically gunning to join the old crew. Could this finall be it?
Michael Bay has just taken to Twitter to post a line he uttered in today's video that we shared earlier.
"Is Squeaks camera-ready?" This raises a fair number of questions, most of all: who is Squeaks? And is that a real character name or just a codename, in the fashion of the Rocky-
themed codenames from Dark of the Moon
? Who knows, but keep reading to see the tweet for yourself!
Take this one as a rumor for now, but we may have our next Autobot vehicle mode sighting from Transformers: The Last Knight. While they're being extremely
subtle about their role in distributing the image, the TransformersCars Facebook group has shared a photo of a military vehicle, noted as featuring the same decorative marking as Hound had in Age of Extinction.
It may be a while before this can be substantiated, but assuming it's not a hi-and-die appearance, fans may be pleased if Hound really is returning for the fifth movie. Click through to take a look.
The official Transformers Twitter account has posted a teaser about the next robot character reveal for Transformers: The Last Knight!

Producers for TF5 were allegedly seen scouting locations in the country, so I guess it worked! Keep reading for more details.
Screen Daily reports that Michael Bay's production company is considering shooting locations in the United Kingdom and in Iceland for the next round of Transformers movies. Both countries offer tempting tax breaks and financial incentives for productions that choose to film there, so Bay may be adding those to Transformers 5 and its sequels in addition to US locations.
