Is This the Transformers Dark of the Moon Teaser Poster?
bwbm - 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?

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.

Weibo user NOTRAB has shared another update of photos featuring the just-revealed MPM-4 Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This batch focuses on answering one of the most important questions: How big is it? Particularly how tall compared to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus, long considered to be a high point in engineering this design. At the same time, these side by side comparisons should help dispel any notion of this being a retool of that prior figure, as every visible part between them is very clearly different. The photos are mirrored below, click through and check it out.
Following their Superior Optimus Prime statues what melds aspects of the Generation 1 and Movie characters. Prime 1 Studio bring us Superior Megatron. The teaser image doesn't give up a whole lot, with a look at what may be his chest plate, but we'll be seeing more of this guy soon enough.
Following the earlier reveal, we have some new images and a story of the Transformers Superior Optimus Prime from Prime 1 Studio that is a Generation 1 and Movie Mash-up bust statue. The Superior one is said to part of the Transformers: Age of Time universe. It was designed by Josh Izzi who has sculpted statues for the other Premium Masterline Transformers statues before. Read on to see the details and new looks at Prime's face and the bust for more info.
As it turns out, several days ago Michael Bay stopped to have a quick chat with MTV in a video clip available on MTV's Facebook page. The questions focused mostly on next year's Bumblebee spinoff movie, with a bit of the conceptual angle of it revealed. There was also the ever-present question of whether Bay was truly leaving the franchise behind now. Whether he is or not (his response was decidedly non-committal) he did say he wants to direct one of the later spinoff movies, so he's likely to be back in some capacity or another no matter what. Keep reading to see more.
Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMTFM-14: Shockwave from The Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Shockwave was left to watch Cybertron by Megatron long ago, arriving on Earth to hunt for the AllSpark shortly after Megatron. A peerless scientist with deadly efficiency and a cold devotion to logic, he is one of the very few who could rival Megatron. Shockwave is ready and willing to destroy the Autobots with his arm-mounted AstroMag Cannon.
