Transformers 4 Villain and Voice Actor Revealed - It's Not Who You Think
Ender - Monday, April 01, 2013


The casting news just keeps coming, this time with a spoiler concerning what villains we can expect to fill the void after Dark of the Moon’s summary executions. In a move only this interpretation of the Transformers could justify, Sir Patrick Stewart has been tapped to play none other than Renegade Leader Cy-Kill. That’s right, as in the Go-Bot. Hasbro has owned the Go-Bots since 1991. Is this the “It’s not a reboot” shake up Bay has been promising?

“We’re delighted to welcome Patrick to the Transformers family.” Bay said on his forum, Shoot for the Wallet. “Let’s hope this villain whines less than our last one. “ Probably a reference to Hugo Weaving’s dismissive comments towards the franchise last year. Sir Patrick is likely to continue the Bayformers Tradition of British voiced villains who have no idea what movie they’re in.

Possibly bigger news is the character Stewart will be portraying, Cy-Kill, who is, in fact, not a transformer at all. Contrary to appearance, Bay is not totally oblivious to the Transformer/Go-bot dichotomy; he had this to say on the subject.

“We’re really excited to bring the continuities together like this, I know some people won’t be on board with this re-imagining of the Transformers universe, but we really looked at all the available big bad guys in the mythos, and this was the only one that turned into a motorcycle. I have some motorcycles, they’re awesome. “

I wonder if he made Sir Patrick had to wash one of them to get into the movie. In case you didn't notice, this has been presented to by the April Fools department at ENI. :P

Man, if you're going to leak, LEAK. Don't be cute about it, it's annoying. TF-factory, the usual Weibo leaker, has struck again. Today's first round of leaks revolves around the Studio Series, the movie line expected to start somewhere around next April. We have new package images for Brawl, Optimus Prime, and Starscream - though the latter two have been both pixelated AND had their contents scribbled over - and a piece of artwork for Starscream. Click through to see.
Happy Weibo Leak Day, I guess? The same Weibo source that brought us the image of the box back panel now has posted images of the upcoming Movie Series Blackout and its accessory Scorponok! The figure is quite impressive looking, and as we learned from the packaging already, boasts a 46-step transformation. Keep reading to see!
Next up on the leaks from Weibo users this morning, "tf-factory" has also dropped package-back images of Leader Brawl and Megatron from the upcoming movie line! ...but, they've been marked through. Either someone's being an extra-clever leaker, or Hasbro has gone very effectively low-tech in their leak prevention efforts! But if you'd like an unobstructed view of an as-yet unreleased figure we've also mirrored images of Authentics Grimlock here. Keep reading!
A user on Weibo has shared out a partial image of the back of box for an upcoming Blackout toy. What is presumed to be a Leader Class figure from the recently-named 'Studio Series' lineup as revealed via Toys R Us inventory data can be seen (in typical CG render style) in both robot and vehicle modes, and includes a small scorpion mode Scorponok partner figure just as the original Voyager Class Blackout did way back in the 2007 movie line. Little specifics can be discerned, but we do get to see the call-out for a 46 step transformation process, to which we can say only: Yikes! Click through to view the full size image.
The 4K UHD release the first four Transformers films: TRANSFORMERS, TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON and TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, which will be released on December 5th (TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT is available now on 4K UHD).
