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.

Most people would rather shop at Walmart then Amazon. its all in how much money can Hasbro make Look at Big Bad Toy Store. They are still trying to unload Piranac... read more

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
