Age of Extinction
James Avery Cast to Lend Voice to New Autobot In Transformers 3

By bwbm on Tuesday, February 02, 2010

A recent episode of Unscripted featured an interview with James Avery, best known for his role as Philip Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In the interview, Mr. Avery talks about his life and his career both on stage and on television, but the most interesting tidbit (for us transfans anyway) is the blurb on the right of the video.

The blurb claims that Mr. Avery will be lending his voice to Silverbolt, a new Autobot in a little film called Transformers 3.

This role was never indicated by him in either of the videos available on the interview page, so we will have to take this as a rumor for now, although there really is not a reason to write that information unless Mr. Avery told them.

Transformers 3 has been rumored to start filming in May and possibly in 3-D. Locations scouted for filming include Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C., and Miami.

I donno everybody but if this is true, I'm more thinking that Uncle Phil will be getting the Alpha Trion treatment. I think I may be the only one thinking this though. Would be awesome to see that happen.

He was a Concord jet. I seriously hope he is the Arealbot leader and I hope Superion is more agile and not an ape like Devastator was. Superion would have rocket thrusters all over him so he should be able to stand straight up and move well. Remember in TF1 though they used the name Devastator f... read more

Actually you're both wrong! He'll be movie based so he won't be anything like any Silverbolt we've ever seen before! And he'll probably be a car!

More Age of Extinction News
Deadline is reporting tonight that Hasbro Studios and Paramount have reassigned Akiva Goldsman away from writing the next Transformers movie. Apparently so pleased with his success leading the Transformers writers room, he will go on now to run a similar project for GI Joe, and then again for Micronauts when time comes to develop that property for film. Reportedly Goldsman will still have a supervisory role over the Transformers movie scripts, but will not be directly contributing to them himself. Keep reading for more on the new writers being negotiated and the original article link below.
Prime 1 Studios continues its series of extravagantly detailed - and plain old extravagant - statues of the Movie Transformers! Limited to a run of 1500, with 500 including an exclusive severed Brawl head, Ironhide sports LEDs in his head and his cannons, and will set you back $1600 USD. Luckily there's a nice gallery of photos available so you can give it a nice, thorough look-over before you buy - keep reading to see!
We have our first good out of package look at the surprise movie Sideswipe figure that appeared for order on RobotKingdom this weekend. Thanks to Jimmy Yu and Ck Wong on Facebook, we've got several nice shots of the figure, showing off its extensive silver paintjob. Between that and being the Dark of The Moon mold, this may be the best overall representation of movie Sideswipe out there. Now, if only we knew why it was given AOE Crosshairs' guns... Click through to see all the photos!
RobotKingdom has posted a listing for a brand new entry in the Movie Advanced Series, a limited edition release of Sideswipe. Based on the Dark Of The Moon Deluxe mold and for some reason including weapons from Age of Extinction Crosshairs, it becomes overall quite inexplicable! RobotKingdom has this as shipping on November 14, and as we have no word on other release avenues for this, it might be a good idea to jump on now if you're interested. Click through to see the in-package photos!
Vending Times has reported on the third iteration of Sega's Transformers: Human Alliance arcade cabinet. An arcade-style lightgun shooter, this new "Super Deluxe" version of the cabinet sports an 80-inch screen and mounted lightguns with recoil action. Said to be "about the size of a kid's bedroom," it should be pretty easy to tell if the version you see is the Super Deluxe. Keep reading for more details and a link!
