YouTube channel HeyUGuys
has interviewed British voice actor Jim Carter, the voice of Cogman! He talks about how he was actually on-set for the production - which is unusual for a voice actor - and had a great time working with Sir Anthony Hopkins and Michael Bay. Carter says he hadn't seen any of the Transformers films previously and he was about to go watch Transformers: The Last Knight
after the interview - that had to be an interesting experience. Keep reading for the clip!
We've got two stories of note to share here: first is The Hollywood Reporter
speaking to Transformers: The Last Knight
star Jerrod Carmichael, and among other subjects he talks about learning on-set to adjust his comedy for places like China. That kind of focus has paid off for Paramount and director Michael Bay, with Deadline
reporting that TF5 has earned $48 million in China so far - with the possibility of a hundred million dollar opening in that country looming. Keep reading for excerpts from both stories!
Walmart has posted the full schedule and list of stops for the Autobots Unite tour event whose details were leaked a few weeks ago. The promotion has been in progress since early this month - which means unfortunately some number of the indicated stops have already come and gone before we became aware of the complete information. But many states have numerous visits listed, so you'll probably have at least one more chance without going too far out of the way if you missed your local one already. We've extracted the pages of the schedule PDF - you can find all 28 pages of stop sorted by state in the album below!
PrimeVsPrime on Youtube has uploaded a short video demonstrating the functions of the larger remote control Sqweeks toy that's been highlighted since Toy Fair this year. The video gives a very thorough look at the packaging before getting in to what the toy itself does - including the very unusual way of starting and shutting it off. We get a good idea of what it has to offer in its robot, dance, and blaster modes, as well as proof that it needs plenty of open space to be operated in.

Simon Chan on Facebook has shared early images of the Transformers pages from Figure King Magazine issue 233. While nothing particularly new is on show, we do get to see the stock photos for the November Legends Series assortment, Masterpieces including MPM-3 Bumblebee, the Wonderfest exclusive Laserbeak (pink Bumblebee), and a full page on Calibur Optimus and Leader Megatron. We've mirrored the images below, click through to take a look!
As one Transformers movie news cycle begins to wind down, the next one kicks in to gear. Screen Rant has already been talking about next year's Bumblebee prequel movie with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Perhaps the most interesting piece of this is a change of language, now addressing the 2019 release for "Transformers 6" as a "hope" more than a plan. Might this change of attitude be a response to the surely lower than anticipated performance of The Last Knight
in its opening day? Keep reading for more!
Another piece of The Last Knight exclusive news tonight, as a further entry in the Reveal The Shield exclusive sub-branding has been discovered. UK retailer Argos has a listing page on their website for a mask assortment featuring reuses of Transformers Prime series Optimus and Bumblebee masks. In addition to the scrambled color blocks, the masks now have red lenses, which should permit them to work as wearable decoders for any of the Reveal The Shield products. These are expected to be available via Target stores in the US. Click through for stock images of the masks.

Holy moly, what would you do to shop a spread like this? For fans in Hong Kong, all they had to do was hit Toys R Us who were putting on their special "Madness Event" in celebration of the Transformers: The Last Knight movie release. Even Optimus Prime was there shopping for all the latest figures that he cannot find in the USA yet. Watch the full video below by way of YouTube member Toy Zone D.
Thanks to tf-factory we have some official looks at the Premier Edition Cogman figure from Transformers The Last Knight. The violent comedian servant had been a fan favorite in the new movie and now we can have him in his toy form.

This year's Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Black Convoy has become somewhat infamous - it sold out the first day it was for sale at the show, and barely any secondary retail outlets were able to obtain stock, and the remaining quantity was so low that it was only made available afterward on TakaraTomy Mall as a lottery sale item. TakaraTomy has decided to respond to the unexpected demand by issuing a second run of the figure. A placeholder listing is up, and it looks like preorders will begin on July 4th. We don't know when they will be delivered, but we can expect at least a few months between. Keep reading for a link to the product page!
We've got the reports in on the ticket sales for the first full day of showings for The Last Knight
- and the news is not particularly good. Including the early Tuesday night showings, it seems that the fifth Transformers movie has had the lowest opening day out of the entire series so far. As a result, the previous predictions of a $70 million result by the end of the first weekend is now trending downward further to a projected $65 million, according to Variety and Deadline. Keep reading to see how this first day stacks up against the openings of the first four movies!
