2014 is set to be a big year for the Transformers brand. Not only is it the brand’s 30th anniversary, but the highly anticipated Transformers: Age of Extinction movie from Paramount Pictures is released in the summer and Hasbro is launching an innovative Transformers product range in support.

To kick-start this blockbuster year, Transformers will be sponsoring the 2014 Toy Fair at Olympia.

The replica Optimus Prime truck will be keeping a watchful eye over the attendees at the main entrance and guests will be able to have their photo taken in the cabin.

Extensive Transformers branding will also be present at the entrance of Olympia as well as on the internal doors, stairs, walls, selected floor spaces and goody bags. The first film trilogy will also be playing on the Hasbro stand.

While the details of the new toy range are currently under wraps, Hasbro has revealed that it will be launching an extensive range of products in its toy and action figure line inspired by the film. There will also be a wide range of licensed products available.

The Hasbro stand number is 620 (Gallery). Tours will be taking place every day throughout Toy Fair on the hour, every hour, from 10am-4pm (excluding noon).

With production having just begun on next year's Bumblebee-focused movie, one would hope that assembling a cast has been on someone's mind. The Hollywood Reporter brings word of a number of young actors currently in talks for parts in the film, following behind leads Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. No one involved has given any specifics yet towards the story, only sticking to the rundown of Lorenzo di Bonaventura that it'll be smaller, less robots, and more character development focused. Keep reading to find out more about the newest round of casting!
It is that time of year again when the annual Transformers Hall of Fame nominees are chosen by you to the Transformers fans. This year we have 12 brand new choices lined from all the movies in for the Favorite Robot Movie Character Poll. That's where you come in. We need your help in narrowing this down to the top three characters. Those will be sent onto Hasbro who will count the grand total of votes from many sites with the winner announced at HasCon 2017. Vote now through Saturday at midnight on the Poll after the jump.
According to Hollywood reporter, actor Jorge Lendeborg Jr. is currently in talks to play the male lead in the next Transformers movie that is tentatively referred to as the "Bumblebee Movie". Jorge has played roles in The Land (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Brigsby Bear (2017). Set sometime in the 1980s, the lead female role will be played by Hailee Steinfeld. The choice of the new lead role, will give us a better idea of what kind of movie this may be. As word has it, this one will feature less robots, and more human character development.
According to the LA Times, the next foray into the Transformers Movie Universe will get a record $22 Million tax credit for shooting the movie entirely in California, USA. The money comes from what is being called a "state program aimed at curbing so-called runaway production." Is it just me, or does it seem odd WE the people should foot the bill for productions that all the profit goes back to the studio? California is not alone, Michigan and other states have provided these incentive before. The idea being, these productions will bring jobs and income to the state.
The plot thickens! A photo by one owenchengzixuan has shown the recently-discovered reissue of 2007 Leader Optimus Prime in Transformers Tribute packaging. This is the same subline that the Orion Pax/War For Cybertron Optimus Prime 2-pack is a part of. But we still don't know its purpose, or what stores will be carrying this oddball assortment of... well, so far it's an assortment of Optimus Primes! Keep reading to see the photo.
