News & Updates


We reported earlier on TakaraTomy's release of Cogman being postponed with no projected new release date, but today we've also learned a little more about the (probably largely theoretical) North American Hasbro release of the figure. Entertainment Earth has posted the case loadout for Deluxe Wave 4, and it's not very good news. As expected, Cogman is the only new figure is the wave, but what it ships with should be cause for concern. Keep reading to find out what you can expect.





The miserable distribution of the Deluxe pricepoint of Transformers The Last Knight Premier Edition has probably left you feeling little hope of seeing the tail-end new mold Cogman available for purchase in a store or online without buying a case assortment of things you might already have - or simply don't want - along with it. The TakaraTomy release of the figure, solicited for the end of October then seemed like a good safety net, provided you were able to get a preorder while they were available. Unfortunately it seems that wasn't so secure of a backup plan either. Keep reading to find out more.





Thanks to Paramount Pictures, RAC has received a Blu-Ray Combo Pack copy of Transformers: The Last Knight for review, in advance of its September 26th release date! Join him as he goes over the specifics of the set and its Special Features... with an extended aside about the film itself. Keep reading for the full review!



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!



Paramount is running a tournament bracket right now to let fans decide who the top Bot (or Con) is among the movie series cast. A special website is running right now allowing visitors to vote on contestants from both factions, the ultimate winner from each will go head to head. Sadly as of time of writing, Cogman has already lost out of the running, rendering the Autobot side largely meaningless. But - there's still a chance to help Nitro Zeus advance past the first round! Find the link to the site just below in the full post.





The official Hasbro YouTube channel has posted a new Transformers Designer Desk video for Transformers: The Last Knight Premier Edition Leader Class Megatron! John Warden demonstrates the figure's full range of articulation, as well as showing off the cool sword and the battle mask gimmick. It's a fun-looking toy! Keep reading to see the video, and some outtakes from Warden at the end.



On the Youtube channel "Comic Book Movie" we can see a quick clip showing some behind the scenes work from Transformers The Last Knight as one of the movie's Merlin scenes is being filmed, intercut with comments from the screenwriter about casting Stanley Tucci for the role. And sure enough we are shown the crew - Michael Bay included - having trouble containing themselves at the somewhat unconventional take on King Arthur's Wizard. You can find the clip embedded below.



Via TFND we have in addition to our first look at Legends for February, also the February offerings in Japan's Movie The Best line. The first wave for 2018 will include Jazz, Bonecrusher, and The Last Knight Leader Megatron all featuring modified/improved decos versus earlier releases, as well as Age of Extinction Lockdown with a new visored headsculpt in addition to its altered deco. Will any of these be going on your shopping list? Take a look in our gallery below to help you decide!

The special packaging set will include the full Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital copies of the film along with the die-cast toys for only $29 USD.

Following the look at the cool packaging, we have a much better look at the goodies inside the Bumblebee Evolution 3 Pack by way of Amazon Japan. Looking back over the history of Bumblebee 10 years, it is the appearance of three body sets. We have a look at all three of the figures in robot and vehicle modes.

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!
