Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Ride 'Em Cowbee! Emprire Magazine Gives Up Writers Room Details on Transformers The Last Knight
BaCon - Monday, May 15, 2017


Empire Magazine's online arm have posted what they are calling an "Exclusive, Explosive New Look At Bumblebee In Transformers: The Last Knight", which is something that we have seen already in early trailers where Bumblebee saves the kids from the bipedal Mech-bot at the abandoned stadium, but still!

The good news is beyond the Bee, we get some insights on the making of the latest movie with words from the writers room on the early formation of the 5th Transformers movie and how they pretty much got what they wanted... Something that could explain the too bright ideas that have impaled this movie.

What's quite surprising is Bay suggests that Age of Extinction was basically him prototyping a new direction.
The last film in the franchise was, Age Of Extinction, was “kind of an outlier,” Bay explains in the new Empire. “Because of losing Shia and just figuring out where we were gonna go. It was testing the waters a little bit. This gets us back in the groove”.

As for the Writer's from the Room, they've shared how their wild ideas were quickly realized somehow with Michael Bay's clout. Quite literally choosing who they would like to play a role, and Bay made it so. At least with regards to the Sir Edmund Burton Englishmenm for Hopkins, and Gogman, that is said to be inspired by the Downton Abbey craze, according to Ken Nolan and Matt Holloway.
“We said, ‘He’s an Anthony Hopkins-type character,’” says co-writer Ken Nolan. “And two days later Michael’s like, ‘So, we’ve got Anthony Hopkins.’” Another new character is Cogman, a psychotic robot butler (“He constantly wants to kill people,” says co-writer Art Marcum) who has been excitedly described by Spielberg as “the greatest four-and-a-half-foot character since Yoda”. Co-writer Matt Holloway, a Downton Abbey fan, one day said as an aside, “It would be so funny if Jim Carter voiced this character.” A short while later, Bay announced, “Jim Carter — we got him.” “It’s good to be Bay,” says Nolan. “Everybody says yes.”

You can read the full article at the source link below, but look out for the EMPIRE print edition coming on Thursday that promisses a lot more exclusive coverage with Michael Bay on Transformers The Last Knight.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
A major part of Walmart's exclusive Autobots Unite subline during the run of The Last Knight Premier Edition, Deluxe Hot Rod never really turned up in any stores - nor did the majority of the rest of that sub-branding, which found its way to discount retailers a few months back. Premier Edition Hot Rod is now following suit, with a reported find at Ross in the Los Angeles area priced at $8.99, according to Gepard. Hot Rod was available via Walmart's website, starting at $20 and gradually rising in price as time went on. Ross distribution can be hit and miss, but at this price it may be worth keeping an eye out!
Thanks to Alfes2010 on Twitter, we have some (literally) in-hand photos of the quad barrel shotgun accessory that was the subject of the latest TakaraTomy marketing campaign in Japan. Customers buying 4000 yen worth of qualifying Transformers merchandise at participating retailers would receive the quad barrel shotgun, itself a reuse of one of Hound's many weapons originally from the Age of Extinction toy, painted in Optimus Prime inspired deco. You can click through to see Alfes2010's photos showing a few different figures using the special weapon.
Planet Iacon has shared some in-hand images of the TakaraTomy Quad-Barrel Shotgun Japanese campaign exclusive. The "Quad-Barrel Shotgun" is a movie replica from "Transformer The Last Knight", a gun that Optimus Prime used while brainwashed in the violent fight scene against Bumblebee. Check out the exclusive weapon along with the poster and accompanying literature below.
So it's generally accepted that Transformers: The Last Knight One-step Changers (known as Speed Change Transformers in Japan) aren't the most impressive of figures. But, what about one that is made from the ground up by one person, entirely out of cardboard? Thanks to DIY Japan on YouTube, we can now answer this question: it is much, much cooler. Click through to see the video!
