News & Updates


WhatNot Toys announce that they have acquired the U.S. rights the Herocross line of Transformers Super Deformed action figures. Their new series of movie figures is said to bring a completely new dimension to the incredibly popular Transformer franchise that they hope will resonate with the huge Transformer fan base in the U.S. Their first wave is shown to include Transformers Last Knight characters Optimus Prime, Megatron, Hound, Bumblebee, Hotrod and Autobot Squeeks. Read on to see them all in the gallery below.



Move toy fans will be glad to know WhatNot Toys is rolling out their own line of Super Deformed Transformers toys, in addition to GI Joe, My Little Pony and others. The promotion on there site shows an The Last Night styled Optimus Prime and Megatron figures that look highly detailed and nicely painted. We'll likely find out about the whole line at Toy Fair later this week.



Hollywood wants to love the the fans, they really really do. But they don't seem to know how when they keep putting too many humans in robot movies. Five movies on, they have literally run this franchise over a cliff. Knights, Unicron horns and even Cogman couldn't save them, It made $500 Million, but raked in a lot the slag with it. The legendary fan force that is Screen Junkies. Takes aim at TLK with their barrel fusion-cannons. Leaving a steaming pile of bashes, laughing all the way.



In what's appearing to be a popular move for third party companies, DX9 and Uniquetoys have announced a new figure based on Transformers: The Last Knight's Hot Rod! The co-production features diecast metal parts and two accessory weapons, and preorders will also receive a "Heroine" figure - Viviane Wembly with the Staff of Merlin - along with a pair of energy effects for the guns. Keep reading to see photos!



In a presentation video likening the subjects of its nominations to toxic waste, the Razzies, AKA the Golden Raspberry Awards, have announced their nominations for the worst of 2017. As you might expect, Transformers: The Last Knight indeed has been nominated, tying Age of Extinction with nine nominations. That's the record for the franchise! Keep reading for specifics on the nominations along with an announcement video for the three top categories.



Everybody loves a good deal, and we wanted to share a few that we randomly found on Amazon today. Disclaimers, of course: Amazon pricing fluctuates with inventory levels, so while the pricing noted here is accurate to time of writing, it may vary over time; second, pricing and availability is, as far as we know, for US customers only and may not correspond to pricing on your local flavor of Amazon. With that said, let's look at some toys!





One of the aspects of the Transformers movie franchise that rarely if ever generates discontent are the scores by Steve Jablonsky. Now - as has happened in the past with such films as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Paramount has made the score for Transformers: The Last Knight available on a "For Your Consideration" website in preparation for the Academy Awards. Keep reading for the link!



The Autobots Unite subline from The Last Knight sure turned out oddly. What was originally Walmart's exclusive contribution to the toyline largely never materialized through Walmart at all. Among them is a One Step Turbo Changer set of Bumblebee and Hot Rod, which we discovered this evening at a Ross location in middle Tennessee. This joins the Legion Class two packs in calling the closeout chain home after never finding space on Walmart's shelves. You can find a photo of the find below. The set was priced at $11.99.



Twitter user Tagoal has posted some images of the Transformers: The Last Knight Optimus Prime Clear Version that was released recently to coincide with TF5's Japanese home video debut! Sporting a lot of clear white and blue plastic, this is the Voyager mold available on shelves now (still) in the Premier Edition. It's kind of a shame that basically every version of this mold looks more appealing than the stock retail release, but even that one is a pretty nice toy in and of itself. Keep reading to see the photos!



A recent feature list on the online version of Rolling Stone sought to line up the ten worst films of 2017, Many choices seemed quite fitting, with few at least marginally surprising even just for where they scored on the list, if not their presence there to start with. But it's probably not that much of a leap that they gave the number one spot on the list to none other than Transformers: The Last Knight. While some fans might point to it as being on the better end of the series, that speaks very little for its quality in the larger arena of movies in general. Keep reading for a quick excerpt and link back to the Rolling Stone page.

From the website of artist Furio Tedeschi we have some new pieces of The Last Knight concept art from various stages of design. What made this latest batch stand out as interesting was how a number of pieces, such as some of the knight designs, showed clear traces of what would go in to the toyline, possibly marking a few of these pieces as part of the starting point for the design of things like Dragonstorm. Another treat is a few photos of those knight designs as physical set elements from the sound stages - parts of which I personally got to view up close in August of 2016! Keep reading to take a look through the mirrored images!


Autobase Aichi has posted images of more of TakaraTomy's Transformers: The Last Knight promotional items, and details on how to get them! Those who spend 2,000 Yen or more at TakaraTomyMall right now will net themselves a Bronze Calibur Axe. Meanwhile, those who spend at least 5,000 Yen starting November 11th will be give a set of golden weapons for Optimus Prime and Megatron - the Temenos Sword and "Battle Axe" - while supplies last.

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!
