Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Ding Dong The Writer's Room Is Dead, Akiva Jets, and the Bayhem Got Away
BaCon - Wednesday, August 02, 2017

It is about time all those axes swinging around "Transformers: The Last Knight" lobbed off some heads. in this case, those of Akiva Goldsman, and the Writer's Room altogether according to Forbes magazine. Apparently, the fans were not the only ones pointing fingers after "The Last Knight" failed to impress USA movie goers. Even though it managed to keep slowly building what is a not bad $500+ million box office take that many films could only dream about - heads rolled.
So it comes as no surprise that the writers room isn’t coming back, and neither is Akiva Goldsman. Well, as ridiculous as the idea was, Hasbro certainly gets points for trying. It’s not their fault that their aging toy franchises have no creative value whatsoever. The only movie based on a toy line that managed to be truly good was The Lego Movie, and that’s because the very essence of Lego is to follow your imagination.

But it wasn’t all a disaster; the writers room was apparently responsible for Travis Knight’s upcoming Bumblebee spin-off, which sounds weirdly … well, good. Bumblebee will be set in the eighties and is described as a coming of age film, which, in a sense, returns Transformers to its roots. The original film was about a boy getting his first car, and his first girlfriend. It was cute and relatable, and the only film in the franchise that had anything resembling a soul.

While this is very likely welcome news to some, it is too easy to make them the scapegoats. While I admit I am glad to see something else, I have to wonder if the stakeholders simply made all the same mistakes all over again by not giving fans what they have been asking for since the Bayhem started.

While Forbes wants to attribute the so-called spin-off as the Writer's Room saving grace. I doubt many are buying into the idea that a movie with fewer robots, that proposes to explore the back story of these Transforming beings from Cybertron. Is going to connect the dots any better than the past puzzles we have been left with before.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
The results are in for the 38th Golden Raspberry Awards. Transformers: The Last Knight carried nominations in several categories, surely to the surprise of no one who was actually paying attention. But despite all its charms, TLK was up against some tough competition, especially from the incredibly ill-conceived Emoji Movie. The results can either be seen as an affirmation of victory over anyone trying to highlight its flaws, or a crushing blow that it wasn't even bad enough to win here, but The Last Knight walked away without taking a single raspberry. If you're interested in the complete results, you can check out the video below.
Weibo user NOTRAB has posted a gallery of upcoming Studio Series Leader class Grimlock! The new-mold figure is a significant visual upgrade compared to the original 2014 Leader mold. While we might wish for more color, we can't rightly pin that on Hasbro as these figures are designed to be as screen-accurate as they can possibly be. Keep reading to see the photos, mirrored here for convenience!
WhatNot Toys announce that they have acquired the U.S. rights the Herocross line of Transformers Super Deformed action figures.

Read on to see them all in the gallery below.
Move toy fans will be glad to know WhatNot Toys is rolling out their own line of Super Deformed Transformers toys, in addition to GI Joe, My Little Pony and others. The promotion on there site shows an The Last Night styled Optimus Prime and Megatron figures that look highly detailed and nicely painted.

Hollywood wants to love the the fans, they really really do. But they don't seem to know how when they keep putting too many humans in robot movies. Five movies on, they have literally run this franchise over a cliff. Knights, Unicron horns and even Cogman couldn't save them, It made $500 Million, but raked in a lot the slag with it. The legendary fan force that is Screen Junkies. Takes aim at TLK with their barrel fusion-cannons. Leaving a steaming pile of bashes, laughing all the way.
