Transformers Ride is Alive and Still Under Construction; Bay Now On Board
By bwbm on Sunday, June 13, 2010
West Coaster, through its pictorial of Universal Studios Hollywood, has confirmed that the Transformers ride is alive and well and is currently under construction.
The ride was announced in October of 2008 but other than Transformers Director Michael Bay voicing opposition over the ride, any further news has been absent.
The images posted by West Coaster provide our first looks at the Transformers ride being under construction but at a very early stage, showing Bumblebee and the Transformers logo on the front.
Despite Mr. Bay's previous opposition of the ride, Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative, said that Mr. Bay is now on board.
Mr. Woodbury revealed this while being interviewed for the documentary on the making of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the newest theme park at the Universal Studios Orlando. He revealed that Universal attempts to make the best experience with the rides and Mr. Bay is collaborating to help them do just that.
The documentary video is available on Hulu.com and is embedded below. Mr. Woodbury makes the remark at about 8:16 in the video below, which starts at the beginning of his remarks on the subject. Be sure to stick through the commercial.

Following the Brawl news, Prime 1 Studio is proud to present Premium Bust Collection PBTFM-05:IRONHIDE from Transformers Dark of moon. Autobots weapons specialist and Optimus Prime's old friend. He is old because he is hard. He's probably had enough replacement parts to build a small army, but Ironhide doggedly refuses to roll over and die for anyone.He'll fight to the bitter end and take down more than his fair share of Decepticons in the process.
Via their Facebook page, Prime 1 Studios has shared images of an upcoming Premium Bust Series entry based on Brawn from the 2007 Transformers movie. The bust captures a lot of the upper body vehicle elements in great sharpness and detail, and makes an excellent representation of the character as he appeared in the movie before being killed by Bumblebee. This update does not present information regarding release date or price, but given the level of completion, we expect that to be revealed soon. Keep reading to see all the pictures!
Thanks to Target.com who have posted new order pages with images of the Transformers Age of Extinction Power Attackers Junkheap, Vehicon, and High Octane Bumblebee. Get an official look at the final Wave 4 figures in the packaging now.
Live-action Transformers composer Steve Jablonsky has posted an illuminating explanation to Facebook to help us understand why the Age of Extinction (and, as it turns out, Dark of the Moon) soundtracks have been removed from iTunes. In short, it has to do with music licensing fees that kick in at a certain threshold- and Paramount doesn't want to have to pay them. Keep reading for Jablonsky's full statement!
The official TakaraTomy PR Twitter account for Transformers has posted a new photo of Army Camo Hound, a recolor of the Generations Voyager mold that is part of a special box set with the Japanese home video release of Age of Extinction. It's not a huge difference from the mass release in either country, but it looks pretty nice and should be a nice bonus for those who want the Japanese Blu-Ray version of Transformers 4.
