TRANSFORMERS THE RIDE

Mark Woodberry talks about creating rides based on pop culture properties. They like to collaborate with the originator and this started with the Jurassic Park ride and followed by rides for James Cameron, and Revenge of the Mummy.


All those things have been brought into making Transformers the Ride 3-D, set for a launch in 2012. Involves state-of-art motion ride with 4D project imagery.

Michael Bay is a consultant on the ride and they have tapped Cullen and Welker as Prime and Megatron for the ride voices. Other voice talent from Transformers history are also included as voices in the ride.

Ride is based on the NEST mission to find the shard of Allspark. NEST needs the Autobot's help to transport the shard and Evac helps them out. Ride will feature face-offs with Ravage and other Dececpticons.


The next scene we are treated to is with Prime as we follow him through the streets of Chicago to complete mission. Ride flies though air and up on top of buildings, with Prime saying "Only you can save the Universe."

Unicron would also triple in price on the first day on Amazon. The prices there are crazier then eBay's EDIT - Nevermind I was wrong loosk like Amazon is getting Unicron.

Those aren't even chicken legs because even chicks have legs. Those appear to be tiny tri-pods at the end of his knees. I keep looking at the pic but I just dont see any mass anywhere that would indicate its mistransformed. Makes me sad in my heat.

HA Soundwave has to be mistransformed. His legs look tiny. Deluxe is freakin awesome. Will be buying all of them however. Prime Soundwave looks way better then his CGI model. Don't care too much for anything else aside from Dark Steel and Junkheap. Playschool Bots looks cool though.

I do NOT like Soundwave's MechTech weapon. Looks goofy in alt mode. Soundwave however... The "red" Ironhide looks decent enough, but they're still using that horrible Voyager mold So to get Leadfoot you have to get Topspin again? LAME Prime Wheeljack looks hawt Evac looks ... read more

More Conventions Center News
The official BotCon Twitter has posted stating that the registration system is not ready and will not be ready until after the US Memorial Day holiday weekend. This would put registration as likely beginning on Tuesday, May 26th - roughly three weeks before the actual start of the convention. Keep reading for the Tweets.
With about 25 days remaining before the first planned activities of this year's Botcon, it looks like registration will finally go live sometime on Friday, May 22. The Botcon Twitter account posted a notice to this effect, and an update to botcon.com goes in to slightly more detail, anticipating pre-reg so long as no technical issues present themselves in the meantime. Along with this, images of this year's t-shirt and hat were also posted. Click through and check out the images and a quote from the update.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Chris shows off Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus, Titan-class Devastator shows up on Amazon, more possible Botcon exclusives leak, Dystopia still available and Kilby will be tormented, X-Transbots Andras Swarm Leader (aka NOT Scourge) up for pre-order, Botcon is less than a month away--ARE YOU READY? All this and more!!


Keeping priorities well in line, Fun Publications has followed through on yesterday's promise and posted the first three pages of the at-show comic book story. Featuring Stepper, Battletrap, and Megatron out of the boxset's offerings, the preview is just enough to set up the underlying notion of the story typing the disparate toys together. The final page of the preview also featured an obscured character, who after some guesses to the identity perhaps got too close, was obscured even more. Identity speculation and preview images in the full article!
Registration is now open for TFCon Charlotte! Available online for a whopping, super-professional 149 days/5ish months/21 weeks before the event, prices range from a $264 package for the weekend and a set of convention-exclusive toys down to $22 for Sunday only. Prices are also given for the various figures as add-ons, and also T-Shirts ranging up to size 3XL. Keep reading to see, and for a link!
