Is This the Transformers Dark of the Moon Teaser Poster?

By bwbm on Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Update: Transformers: Dark of the Moon Director Michael Bay has confirmed that the poster is not legitimate. "Total fake poster," he posts on his official Shoot For the Edit website. "The story logline is also a misdirect."

Original Post:
Thanks to Bru No, we have what appears to be a poster for the third and final installment of the giant robot series for Director Michael Bay and company, Transformers: The Dark of the Moon.

The poster shows off the iconic head of Shockwave peeking over the moon, which has the Decepticon symbol visible on the surface.

The bottom of the poster reads, "Be Afraid of the Dark," with the release date of the film July 1, 2011 underneath the tagline.

While we cannot independently verify the authenticity of this poster, this poster is very similar to the teaser poster for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which depicted just The Fallen with the tagline, "Revenge is Coming."

The text for the tagline and date is also very similar in both posters.

The poster was sighted on an easel and what looks like a conference room within a hotel building.

This is the second teaser poster we have seen for the film, the first being a full-body shot of Optimus Prime with just "TF3" written on the bottom of the poster.

However, the argument can be made that the Prime poster was just for placeholder purposes and is not the actual teaser poster for the film. The same poster was sighted as the cover page of Director Michael Bay's binder while he was shooting in Chicago, IL.

Really I think it's the roundness of it that's throwing me off.

The head design of the original Generation 1 Shockwave toy and animation model features a number of iconic elements that have been transferred to subsequent incarnations and re-imaginings of the character. In no particular order, these are: 1. A cycloptic eye, generally rendered in a purple-compli... read more

Probably like they work in the purple touches in Barricade or other touches like nearly the entire first run of Beast Wars toys.. Its quite easy to have a car/truck of one colour and add in a blooming rainbow of a body. I dont know why but I have the weird feeling this was a Media Studies students ... read more

All I can say is they better fix that other Decepticon's head too so he looks as much like Starscream as this one looks like Shockwave So unfair...So so SO unfair...

I like Shocky's head design a lot. But although the purple is all geewunny and stuff, its a bit hard to swallow. Im guessing that Mad Max style rig is him, so how are they gonna work in a purple head?

Well maybe after this they can go straight to DVD with "REAL" Transformers stories/movies

I suppose I should have caveated the post in that the third and final installment for this team. They could attempt to reboot or carry on with a new team/actors, but it's definitely been stated that these actors and crew would want to move on.

In a keynote at MIP Junior 2015, Hasbro's Stephen Davis touched on many topics related to the company's media franchises. In the process of answering questions, he revealed that the recently concluded writers room did not just plan Transformers 5, but that they worked to plot Transformers movies for the next ten years, which he suggests will take the property through an eighth film. He also specifically mentions Michael Bay's involvement once again, to no one's particular surprise. Video of the event has been posted to Youtube, so click through to have a look!
Today Deadline is reporting that TJ Fixman, known perhaps best to this audience For his contributions to the Ratchet & Clank series, has been hired in to Hasbro Studios as a creative consultant. Fixman's role will be to work with the existing media producers to help develop the fiction and media sides of the major brands, including Transformers. It sounds like Hasbro Studios is making a serious effort to up their media game, and only time will tell what influence will be seen from this latest addition.
Thanks to Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook, we have some nice photos of the Platinum G1 Dinobots. These are the Generations Series AOE Dinobots in classic colors and with G1-based robot heads, which for better or worse are probably the nearest we're going to get to true Classics Dinobots anywhere in the foreseeable future. Fortunately on that front, these come off looking quite nice with these decos and their retooling. Click through to check out the photos!
Hold up before you sign that check and buy a used car, because there's a statue of a robot you may want to think about first! Prime 1 Studio has posted an extensive image gallery of their elaborate Museum Masterline Transformers Galvatron statue, and it looks pretty impressive! (As it should for an SRP of $1,899 USD!) The Exclusive edition - limited to 888 pieces where the Standard run is 1,000 - includes Megatron's severed head. Keep reading to see!
In a message posted just a short time ago to michaelbay.com and his own Twitter account, Michael Bay states that as of right now he has not officially joined the production of the next Transformers movie. In the very brief and to-the-point statement, Bay notes that he has taken at least one meeting already and that things are being discussed. However, given Bay's track record, we don't expect to see Transformers 5 with someone else ultimately in the director's chair. Stay tuned here for more updates!
