Some sneaky news from the SDCC 2014 Transformers panel, as the Hasbro News Twitter account took questions - for one hour - from fans during the preview evening, and are currently answering a selection of them. The first question answered concerns the possibility of more Generations Titans figure, after last year's Metroplex (and its SDCC 2013 exclusive counterpart!).

Metroplex was tied to the Fall of Cybertron game. Big character, big product & you guys love him.

We're always looking to do things that tie together with our great stories.

If you guys continue to love the great products we put out we're going to continue to make them!


The second answer addresses the return of fan-favourite Transformers: Prime Knock Out.

We always get lots of Q's abt everyone's favorite characters from #Transformers lore.

We look at Transformers and there’s 1000’s of wonderful characters to choose from each year.

We think about all the great fans of all ages from Rescue Bots fans to Generations fans.

So we try to balance the toy line each year to pick characters that fans of all ages will love.


(Someone hasn't been reading their IDW Publishing comics of recent..)

Third question is about more characters, Hot Rod and Blurr!

Hot Rod & Blurr – some of our favorites & great characters from our history that many know & love!

Each year we think about the stories we want to tell to Transformers fans of all ages.

We want to make sure we’re tying the product line with the stories being told.

We love to get fans’ feedback as we move forward and build new stories for all of our fans.



All of which sounds like the most non-committal definitely maybe answer in a while. But feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub discussion boards: what do you think? Will we get more Titan Class figures? Would you like to see more of a particular character?

There is an interesting test shot that has shown up on AC Toys of Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. What makes this test shot interesting is the fact that it features a different head that is very reminiscent of Beast Wars Megatron. Could we have a Beast Wars Megatron remold in store for the future? Perhaps even a small step into Generations Beast Wars toys?

CBR just posted an article covering Activision's SDCC 2012 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron panel, which featured voice actors Peter Cullen, Nolan North, and Gregg Berger. During the panel North mentions working with Cullen and Berger on both Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and Transformers Prime. As usual this should be taken with the normal grain of salt until officially confirmed, but IDW did announce a Dinobot tie-in comic for Transformers Prime season three and Grimlock, who Berger is famous for voicing, is a very high profile character at the moment thanks to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Will Berger be joining Transformers Prime? If so, will he voice Grimlock or an all new character?

The full article can be found by clicking here.

Berger spoke about voicing Grimlock, stating in the Dinobot's voice that he was "driven by aggression!" Without any filters to get in the way, Grimlock's strength has a great capacity, even if it's slightly out of his control. Berger thought it was incredible role for an actor to play. He also did a little bit of "Me king!" in Grimlock voice, much to the delight of the crowd, while explaining what a great ally he was to the Autobots team.

North, the iconic voice of Nathan Drake from the "Uncharted" games, explained how much fun it was voicing both Autobot (Cliffjumper) and Decepticon (Bruticus), changing tones for each character. He jokingly poked at Berger in his Bruticus voice, similar to his Grimlock role. He also felt honored to watch Berger and Cullen work, both on this project and the animated "Transformers Prime" series.

LA Times Hero Complex recently posted an article focusing on Universal Studios Hollywood's new Transformers: The Ride 3D in which director Michael Bay drops a little information about his next Transformers film. According to article Bay says the forth film will be his last before handing the franchise off to a new director. Take that with the normal dose of salt, as we've been hearing that since Transformers: ROTF. The fourth film is also said to feature character redesigns and a completely new cast. Click here to read the full article.

There’s plenty more Transformer action to come with a major new video game release, “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron,” due in August and another Bay movie in the works. (The director, by the way, says that the fourth film will include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast. He also said it will be his last and set the franchise up “for the next guy.”)

Capone of Ain't it Cool News had the opportunity to view Transformers DOTM in it's entirety and has posted the film's first review. While the version that was screened was in 2-D the reviewer states the movie's 3-D potential is "very clear". He also states the movie looks surprisingly complete considering it doesn't come out until July 1st. He has tried to keep his review free of major spoilers, but naturally there are some spoiler-ish details so read on at your own risk. We'll hit some of the high points below, to read his full review click here!

Update: After the Ain't it Cool News review started making waves in the Transformers community regarding the twins director Michael Bay posted the following in his Shoot for the Edit forum:

After the internet posting of a nice review by someone who saw Transformers Dark of the Moon, the writer had not been clear on one thing. He misstated that the Twins are in the film. They are not.

So I am offering a $25,000 REWARD to anyone who can find them performing in Transformers 3, on July 1, when the movie opens.

Michael


Capone has subsequently updated his review with the following regarding the twins:

[Hey, everyone. Just to be 100 percent clear, I'm not referring about the "The Twins" here; they are most definitely not in this film. I'm talking about Wheelie (Tom Kenny, who also voiced Skids in REVENGE OF THE FALLEN) and other similar smaller robots, who act like streetwise teenagers.]



The Chicago battle:
  • over an hour long
  • intense
  • lots of civilian deaths

The Twins:
  • they are in the film
  • they've been toned down from ROTF

Megatron:
  • very creepy
  • still has is disfigurements from ROTF
  • little spider-like robots crawl in and out of his head wound that he casually picks away
  • in surprisingly good spirits

Sentinel Prime:
  • left Cybertron in the Ark filled with technology he thought would eventually save their planet
  • voiced to "perfection" by Nimoy
  • retrieved and revived by Optimus Prime

Sam Witwicky:
  • has graduated college and is now living with new girlfriend Carly
  • not happy that he is not employed by the government
  • his boss is played by Malkovich
  • Ken Jeong is co-worker
  • his parents are in the film, but minimally

Carly:
  • Sam's new girlfriend (obviously)
  • often in the tightest of cloths
  • often filmed as though she is in a Victoria's Secret show
  • better than Megan Fox in the reviewer,s opinion

Dylan (Patrick Dempsey):
  • Carly's boss and possible competition for her attentions
  • has a penchant for world domination

Agent Simmons;
  • has written a book about the Transformers on Earth
  • now a rich eccentric
  • trying to not get pulled back in to the game

Moon landings/alien technology:
  • the first and every Moon landing since has been in response to the Ark crash landing
  • Autobots are not amused that technology meant to save their race has been sitting on the Moon all this time without their knowledge
  • Chernobyl accident was caused by experimentation on retrieved alien technology

Bottom line: Best of the three!

With preparations for this summer's Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon in full swing, we're seeing more images for new figures from the movie's toyline every week. This time around, we supposedly get our first look at DOTM Voyager-class Starscream compliments of a Yahoo Japan auction. The figure itself appears to be identical to the 2009 release from TF2: Revenge of the Fallen, right down to the Cybertronian tattoos. However, much like a lot of the other new, DOTM figures we've seen, this version of Starscream will come with two Mech Tech weapons, one resembling a gun and the other a sword.

EDIT: after closer examination by saavy site member and News Crew personnel, it appears that this my be a different mold than the existing Starscream figures previously released. Whether this is a retool of the older voyager or leader figures or a new mold like a rumored deluxe class is yet to be seen. When we learn more, we'll let you know!

We just wet your pallet with pictures of the Fans Projects sneak peaks of "Rodimus Prime" and what is obviously some sort of "Springer" upgrade kit. We now know that "Springer" will be a completely new triple-changing mold. Expect images of that soon!


Now we bring you pictures of the comic offered in the FPCC instruction booklet. There are no words to this story but from this Mods perspective it goes a little something like this:

Page 1

A very cybertron mode looking Commander is driving out of a fortress. Overhead we see a shot of a helicopter transform in a very familiar way, with visible wheels in robot mode legs. As we see a close up of the face we see a flashback scene of Starscream holding what looks to be Arcee at gunpoint. Starscream shows an images of the energon cubes that are being transported by Commander.

Springer takes a pot shot at Commander while he's driving down the road. This knocks Commander out of vehicle mode and lays him out helpless on the ground. As Springer approaches the downed Commander he notices the precious cargo laying about, exposed for the taking.

As Springer reaches for the engeron cubes Commander has a flash back of his own. For some reason, we see Mudflap giving Commander instructions as to what the cargo and it's effects are for. It's a little vague, but they seem to be for power ups and upgrades.

Commanders route is revealed to be a straight friggin' line! He gladly accepts this cherry mission and loads up his trailer with twin missile launchers and the precious, precious energon cube cargo. He then recaps the last thirty seconds where he was attacked and let said cargo fall into enemy hands.

Commander strikes back against his attacker and causes him to drop one of the disrupted energon cubes. As he slides to make the save he collides with his cargo trailer. As Commander and the trailer meet something very magical and bright happens... so epic it blinds his attacker.

Springer is shocked to see the gigantic upgrade Commander has acquired and decides "Hey, maybe now that he's a mobile fortress I'll attack him head on". Springer leaps at commander looking to cleave him in two when the new and improved POWERED COMMANDER catches the blade in one hand.

Powered Commander and Springer struggle for control when suddenly something happens to Powered Commanders Spark Core. It reaches out and touches Springers. It shockingly reveals Springers pain to him and his reasons for his surprise attack. That dirt bag Starscream has Springers woman!

As Powered Commander realizes Springers reasons for the attack he releases Springers sword and turns face. Shocked, Springer stands in awe of his opponents mercy. As Powered Commander looks back something mystical starts a reaction between the two combatants sparks. To be continued?

New Hasbro Trademark applications - Gobots?!

Transformers News: New Hasbro Trademark applications - Gobots?!

Our friends at Transfromers @ The Moonhave discovered three new trademark applications for Hasbro's Transformers. It also may seem from the beginning that none of these trademarks have anything to do with each other at this time.

The first of the three trademarks is Sparkplug, who was a human character in G1, then a Minicon in Armada, then a robot dog in Animated. Could an Animated Sparkplug toy be on the way? Much like other roleplay toys released in Unicron Trilogy?

The second seems to have Movie connotations, as it's Cyberglyphics. This could be the official designation for the weird markings on the Allspark Cube from the first movie and any other Cybertronian writings we may see in the sequel.

(News Administrator's note: The "Cyberglyphics" sounds very much like the special "hieroglyphics" that seem to appear on the Transformers characters, information which the Seibertron.com "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" insider broke read here.)

Lastly, Leader-1 is returning...but as what? He was first seen as the leader of the Guardians in Gobots and then he was made into a simple Minicon in Armada. Could we be looking at yet another repaint from the Classic's Seeker mold?

As more news regarding these trademarks develops, we will let you know!

Seibertron.com has once again received some new information regarding "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", currently scheduled for release on June 26th 2009. Our source wishes to remain anonymous but is reliable.

Please be warned that this information contains many huge spoilers. If you do not want to be spoiled, do not read any further.





- As mentioned before, Soundwave's alternate mode is a satellite. Our source, however, cannot personally confirm the other reported rumour of Soundwave also turning into a pickup truck.

- Our source confirms the recently reported rumour that Optimus Prime will combine with Jetfire.

- Ravage uses biological warfare against the humans.

- Jetfire can create wormholes.

- Scorpinok will return.

- Our source does not know if the three "Arcee" motorbikes seen in the Wal-Mart exclusive video combine to form Arcee or not - but our source does tell us that the Arcee bikes have not been on set for months, leading to speculation that the character may die early on in the film. CLARIFICATION: Many fans are assuming this could be misleading because the movie is filmed out-of-sequence. While this may be true for most movies, The action scenes for "Revenge of the Fallen" have, for the most part, been filmed in chronological order. The first was filmed in Bethlehem, PA (confirmed by "The Morning Call" - Bethlehem newspaper) and the film's climactic sequence filmed recently at White Sands (confirmed by our source and other on-set reports)

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com's Transformers Movie section as we will update as more information becomes available.
