Age of Extinction
Transformers 4 - Michael Bay Tells Forbes No Reboot: We Keep the Transformers the Way they Were

By Jack on Saturday, February 02, 2013

And the story flips and flops and flops again on whether the fourth Transformers movie will be something new and fresh or something old and continuing. According to the interview Bay just did with Forbes Magazine, he's saying the reboot that Mark Wahlberg recently talked about is "No, that’s wrong." and went on to be specific about what we can expect to see, saying: " We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later." Stating that the original plan to change the look of the franchise has not changed and they would be doing things "smaller" this time.
Will that change the way you do anything on Transformers 4?

We’re going to start off smaller. There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom. The history of the first three movies is still there, we start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast...

So is 4 a reboot?

No, that’s wrong. We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go.

So there we have it, what we think is the last word on the subject of the reboot. In other words, it is not happening. There's a new cast of humans, but it appears we're going to be see the Transformers along the same lines that we did in the first three movies. How do you feel about this?

It would have been more exciting if they didn't change the end of DOTM during production.

Maybe we could have another Pretender this time and Michael Bay could be its host. He could be the perfect villain.

Maybe Liege Maximo will appear as a disciple of Unicron.

Who is the enemy? I mean that's the problem with saying the last movie was the last and killing off the antagonists...

Maybe it could at least be a smaller story without the fate of the world at stake? After all, they did that three times already.

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!
