News & Updates


You can't tell me that Transformers The Last Knight wouldn't have been more entertaining if the movie's conflict was resolved by a rap battle between ...well, anyone really. But for purposes of argument I'm gonna go with Nitro Zeus and Cogman. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But to promote the Leader Class Megatron and Calibur Optimus Prime, TakaraTomy did engage the services of two Japanese rappers to extol the virtues of the two toys in a rap battle. It's all in Japanese, naturally, but it's more than hilarious enough to be worth a look. You'll find the video embedded in the full post just below!



The robots in disguise are visiting in Sioux Falls on Wednesday. Optimus Prime and several other characters from the Transformer films are visiting two Sioux Falls Walmarts to promote the most-recent film in the series, "Transformers: The Last Knight." The retail tour is a partnership between Hasbro and Walmart.



Amazon's exclusive Bumblebee Evolution 3 pack is now in stock! The Transformers Tribute set features three movie Bumblebees - the 2007 line's Classic Camaro, the "stealth colors" Classic Camaro from Age of Extinction, and the brand new mold Deluxe for The Last Knight Premier Edition. The set is priced at $59.99, which may feel a bit steep for two old molds and one current, but you also get some excellent themed packaging as part of the deal. Plus for a lot of people this may be the easiest access right now to the Premier Edition wave 3 Bumblebee mold! Keep reading for the product link.



Holy crap! Transformers has too many names on their packaging. But this is Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Autobots Unite Deluxe Class Autobot Hot Rod.



Last week we opened a giveaway on our Youtube channel, offering you the opportunity to win one of three copies of Transformers The Last Knight provided by our friends at Paramount. We had a great response to that, and today we're announcing our three winners. Click through to the full post to watch the video and find out if you're one of the lucky winners!



New tonight as we have a slightly expanded look at the TakaraTomy Transformers listings for February and March 2018, we now know that rereleases are planned for MPM-3 Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee and TLK-25 Nitro from TakaraTomy's The Last Knight line. This may be welcome news even for US collectors, as distribution for The Last Knight Voyager wave 3 hasn't been extensive. The holiday season often brings poorly stocked waves to discount retailers, so we'll have to wait and see how much problem this continues to be, but at least there may be a backup option available a little later if all else fails.

On top of which, those who pick up the Blu-Ray on December 13th will have an opportunity to get a 7net exclusive clear-plastic Voyager Optimus Prime! Keep reading for the images!



By way of Dengeki Hobby, Autobase Aichi has posted images of the latest Transformers: The Last Knight giveaway in Japan: the Bronze Calibur Axe! Those who spend more than 2000 Yen on Transformers products at the right Japanese retail stores will be eligible to receive this bonus accessory for Optimus Prime.

Hard to believe it has been a whole decade since the first Transformers movie hit the theaters in 2007. Since then it has been a rather wild ride of thrill, spills and big box office takes that arguably ignited the Comic Book movie trend that has since invaded Hollywood, for better and worse, depending who you ask. Regardless, few can deny the epic productions that created a whole new arena for the Transformers to play in. Here, a handful of independent artists from Poster Posse have taken up their pen, brush, and mouse to create their very own tributes to the Transformers Movies 10th Anniversary.

We've got scans of the Transformers pages of Figure King 236 from Loopaza on Facebook. This installment features a page and a half on the Movie The Best lineup coming in early 2018, a page featuring the Leader Class Dragonstorm and the big gimmick toy versiuon, which they depict Optimus Prime riding. The last half of page 3 shows the LG Clonetrons, Windblade, G2 Megatron, and the Prime 1 Studios Sqweeks statue. Click through to see the mirrored pages!


Walmart continues to be the exclusive retailer for all things Movie Hot Rod in the US - though they seem in no hurry to get the Premier Edition toy on shelves. But today a listing has been found on Walmart's website for a Hallmark ornament of the character which will be carried exclusively in Walmart stores. The ornament is shown to be 3 inches tall, and is priced at $7.47, even though it can't be ordered online. The complex details of a movie design seem to have translated less well than did the G1 designs in prior Hallmark efforts. But you can see and judge for youself when you check out all the images in the gallery below!


The effort to promote the home video release of Transformers: The Last Knight continues as Syfy Wire has been given several pieces of design and concept art from the movie to share. Aside from one "samurai knight" robot design, this mostly concerns location design - and the concept of Megatron negotiating with the US government for the release of several captured Decepticons. There's some nice looking pieces in this small collection, especially the planet shots. You can see them all for yourself in the gallery below!


Well, here's an interesting wrinkle: Amazon has just revealed the existence of Transformers: The Last Knight Allspark Tech Sqweeks! And most fascinatingly, he's a Starter Pack figure who includes an Allspark Cube... but this one is rechargeable via USB cable! Keep reading for the photos and description.


As part of the effort to promote the home video release of The Last Knight, Collider has been provided several pieces of concept art for the movie, depicting the ideas that would become major scenes of the movie. Most ended up staying very close to these depictions, while one or two may have been lost to the cutting room floor, or undergone more significant alterations before going to film. We have copies mirrored, but check out the original article link farther down for full resolution - some of them hit about 5000 pixels!

Interviews


In a video interview on comicbook.com, Lorenzo di Bonaventura goes in full spoiler mode talking about The Last Knight, touching on how some of the movie's themes came about, as well as his feelings on the matter when the interviewer asks about a possible move towards Beast Wars representation. But he seems to have the most to say when the question comes up regarding certain aspects of Quintessa, which, if held to, could lead future installments to very weird places. Keep reading to find out what he said, but be aware that it has spoilers for the movie!


Movie website Fandango has interviewed director Michael Bay about his plans for the future, and they once again do not include another Transformers film. This is the fourth time Bay has made this declaration, having recanted after Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, and Age of Extinction - frequently citing an admirable desire to keep his crew together and keep them getting paid. Keep reading for a link to the full interview and the relevant quote!


It appear The Last Knight is the last stop for more than director Michael Bay as lead actor Mark Wahlberg reports this is also his last Transformers movie. And it appears he's quite glad about it too offering his less than happy feedback on having to get in shape and wear his hair long. It's all good Mark, you can load up on Whalbugers now.


British tabloid Daily Mail has interviewed Hopkins about his career, Transformers, and a variety of other subjects. He knows his part - but that doesn't require knowing the complete mythology of the Transformers film series. But he enjoyed working on it nonetheless and was on-set in a variety of interesting locations. Keep reading for the short segment of the interview dedicated to TF5.


Empire Magazine's online arm have posted what they are calling an "Exclusive, Explosive New Look At Bumblebee In Transformers: The Last Knight", which is something that we have seen already in early trailers where Bumblebee saves the kids from the bipedal Mech-bot at the abandoned stadium, but still! The good news is beyond the Bee, we get some insights on the making of the latest movie with words from the writers room on the early formation of the 5th Transformers movie and how they pretty much got what they wanted...

Rumors


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!


While we'd previously seen hints at a Voyager Class Bumblebee being in store for later waves of the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline, those hints just got a lot stronger with the addition of a blank-but-headered page for the figure at ToysRUs UK. The product number also gives us a good indication of which wave we'll see the figure in. Keep reading for more info!


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!
