One more video from our Hascon VIP Dinner Event reporter, Eric Crownover. He captured the special presentation videos shown before the Hall of Fame inductions of Susan Blu and movie series producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. One was a minutes-long collection of congratulations and well wishes from celebrities and notable individuals in the world of movies, the other was 30 seconds of Arcee clips. We'll let you sort out which presentation went with which person, and then you can click through to watch the video embedded below!
Eric Crownover covered the VIP Dinner Event at Hascon this past weekend for us, and along with the panel reports and toy reveal images, he also brought us some quick video clips from presentations during the event. First up we have a tribute to the tenth anniversary of the Transformers movie series, acting as a quick retrospective of the movies - which also probably served as a decent warm-up for the Hall of Fame induction of movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura! You can find the video embedded in the post below.
Stunts are dangerous. Very frequently, the stars of the movie are not let anywhere near the most difficult and life-threatening of them all. But this doesn't seem to be the case for Optimus Prime and Dragonstorm, who charge face-first into a volley of flying rocks. Megatron, though? He has a better idea... keep reading to see the short!

CBS station B96 has interviewed actress Hailee Steinfeld about her part in the upcoming Bumblebee movie as part of an interview held at their station's Pepsi Summer Bash. Steinfeld revealed that she's watching all the existing movies so she has a point of reference for the role, among other things. Our best guess is that, like the rest of us, she's going to be extremely confused after trying to binge-watch all five films. We've embedded the video below, so keep reading to see!

Right behind Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee, it appears MPM-4 Optimus is now becoming available at retail in Asia as well. On Youtube, hirohitokusanagi
has posted three videos featuring the new Masterpiece figure. First up is a demo of the transformation. It's compared repeatedly to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime in the way it works, but none of the numerous steps look particularly difficult. The next two videos show the weapons, plus comparisons alongside other figures. You can find all three embedded below!
YouTube channel HeyUGuys
has interviewed British voice actor Jim Carter, the voice of Cogman! He talks about how he was actually on-set for the production - which is unusual for a voice actor - and had a great time working with Sir Anthony Hopkins and Michael Bay. Carter says he hadn't seen any of the Transformers films previously and he was about to go watch Transformers: The Last Knight
after the interview - that had to be an interesting experience. Keep reading for the clip!

I thought it had been a couple days since we posted any new Transformers: The Last Knight
clips. In the space of those few days, we've found four
new clips: two focus on Drift, one on Megatron, and one is titled "Robot Dementia" and is presumably not about the source of Optimus Prime's ever-growing case of Robot PTSD. Keep reading to see, just in case you want to catch a few more seconds of the movie early before its premiere tonight!
USA Today has posted two videos to promote Transformers: The Last Knight
! In the first, Josh Duhamel talks about going home from the set one day and recognizing a very distinct and unpleasant odor and realizing, for the first time in four movies, what goes into a Michael Bay explosive. In the second, Bay and Mark Wahlberg(pictured) talk about Sir Anthony Hopkins and the pleasure of working with him - and how much Hopkins enjoyed working on a movie where he got to play a more comedic role for a change. Keep reading for links to both videos!
This morning's trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight
is a China-exclusive video that shows off a couple of new moments. One is Megatron pinning Optimus Prime to the ground, snarling "We were BROTHERS once!"
. The other is of Prime cutting down Infernocus' combined form as it splits apart and continues the fight - so assume you just saw 90% of the combiner's screen time. Keep reading to see.
