Considering how quickly the last couple of rumors concerning Transformers 4 were shot down by Michael Bay himself it should go without saying that anything we hear as this point should be taken with a grain of salt unless officially confirmed. That being said, we do have another TF4 casting rumor. ITFN is reporting that Jack Reynor has been offered the role of Mark Wahlberg's daughter's love interest. According to the report the young actor auditioned three times before being offered the role by Michael Bay himself. So far Bay as yet to confirm or deny the validity of this one.

ITFN wrote:Reynor will take over the lead role initially played by Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the original three films, which are based on the Marvel comic series. Reynor is expected to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character’s daughter.

The rumor mill was sent into overdrive earlier this week when MTV Geek reported a rumor that Disney was looking into purchasing Hasbro. This coming shortly after Disney shocked the entertainment world with their 4.05 billion dollar acquisition of Lucasfilm. This prompted CNBC's David Faber to contact Hasbro for confirmation or denial. According to Hasbro's advisors there is nothing going on between Hasbro and Disney. See below:

Providence Journal wrote:Stock in the Pawtucket-based toymaker (HAS:Nasdaq) spiked 6.8 percent to $38.66 at the opening bell amid speculation that Disney (DIS:NYSE) was preparing a multi-billion dollar bid for Hasbro.

Hasbro declined comment, citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro's advisors told him there's "absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form" involving Hasbro or Disney.
Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn't make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney's competitors.

As all of you are probably aware by now Disney made big news last week when they announced they had purchased Lucasfilm for over 4 billion dollars. It looks like Mickey and company haven't put away the old checkbook just yet. MTV Geek is reporting a rumor that Disney is now in negotiations to purchase Hasbro! It's just a rumor for now, but according to MTV Geek a reliable source has stated high level discussions are happening at this moment. Click here to visit MTV Geek for the full story.

Is Opti-mouse Prime in our future?

MTV Geek wrote:Well, we have it on good authority that serious discussions are happening at the highest levels of both Disney and Hasbro to fold the largest toy and game company on the planet into the Mouse.


MTV Geek wrote:The acquisition would give Disney the rights to Transformers, G.I. Joe, Dungeons and Dragons, Beyblade, Battleship, Nerf, and Magic: The Gathering among several dozen other game titles and IP. When you add Marvel and Star Wars to that list it’s a pretty comprehensive lock on boy’s entertainment; a far cry from a few years back when Disney was heavily criticized for losing its grip on boys.


The ramifications to the Transformers hobby could potentially be extremely significant. Everything from the upcoming 2014 Transformers movie to BotCon locations to potential exclusives being available at Disney stores could be affected by this decision. Tell us what you think by clicking here.

As always, treat this rumor with a grain of salt until official confirmation.

*EDIT* Michael Bay has updated his website to address this rumor:

The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor.

Mark and I are talking about another film project.

ComingSoon.net had this to say:

The 2014 section kicked off with the next entry of the Transformers franchise. Obviously there was no footage to show, but the title does reveal a clever logo, the right half of the standard transformers symbol acting as the stem of the number four.


And there's information on upcoming movies, such as G.I. Joe Retaliation, Bay's oft mentioned Pain & Gain and Star Trek Into Darkness, among others. The article is well worth a read, which you can find here.

As for the symbol, also not shown, some fans have taken it upon themselves to come up with ideas to try and show off the design. (Unfortunately, we currently have none of our own to share.)

So, tell us what you think! Feel free to join the discussion, post your own ideas for the new logo.

Transformers 4 won't hit theaters until June of 2014, but the rumors are already starting to fly. The latest rumor making the rounds originates from Spoiler TV and states that the new human leads will be a female high school senior and her boyfriend, a race car driver from Texas. Director Michael Bay has stated on several occasions that the film will feature a new cast, both human and robotic, but keep in mind that no source of any kind was cited. Multiple entertainment websites have picked up on this rumor and ran with it, but it should be taken with a grain of salt for the moment.

Spoiler TV wrote:It looks like Transformers 4 will have 2 new leads.

The new female lead that they are looking for is a high school senior and her boyfriend a Texas racing driver.

Hugo Weaving is a prolific actor. His roles have run the gamut from sci-fi to drama and everything in between. Whether it was little seen or box office blockbuster, the man has done 'em all.

Multimedia site Collider.com has posted a rather lengthy and in depth interview article with Mr. Weaving, concerning his past, present and future film works. Of importance to us, he speaks about his time as Megatron and unfortunately how unimportant it was to him, as an actor. You can read the full article here. If you want just the tidbit that pertains to us, we've quoted it, in full, here:

As the voice of Megatron, has Michael Bay called about the next Transformers movie yet?

WEAVING: No. That’s a weird job for me because it honestly was a two-hour voice job, initially. I was doing a play and I actually didn’t have time, anyway. It was one of the only things I’ve ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn’t care about it, I didn’t think about it. They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret that bit. I don’t regret doing it, but I very rarely do something if it’s meaningless. It was meaningless to me, honestly. I don’t mean that in any nasty way. I did it. It was a two-hour voice job, while I was doing other things. Of course, it’s a massive film that’s made masses of money. I just happened to be the voice of one of the iconic villainous characters. But, my link to that and to Michael Bay is so minimal. I have never met him. I was never on set. I’ve seen his face on Skype. I know nothing about him, really. I just went in and did it. I never read the script. I just have my lines, and I don’t know what they mean. That sounds absolutely pathetic! I’ve never done anything like that, in my life. It’s hard to say any more about it than that, really.

The art features all six Seekers and has the bears the Transformers Asia watermark at the top of the image.

A fellow fansite (The ALLSpark) has information from one of their posters, SwiftEagle, pertaining to the Japan release of Botshots. Images from the store were included as well. (NOTE: We have mirrored the pictures here for ease of viewing)

Here's what he had to say:

So here's an oddity! A friend in Japan was contacted by *his* friend in Japan with the info that Bot Shots have been released there, but only in one store (that he's seen so far). There are six toys out, each with two different packaging variations. Seems like a test market run to see how they'll do at retail there.


Botshots Released In Japan...As A Test Market Item?

Followed by this:
Additional info!

The line is called BeCool (pun on "vehicle"). Bumblebee is the battle-mask version from the latest Hasbro wave. The price is 714 yen.


Botshots Released In Japan...As A Test Market Item?

As of this news posting (09/19/2012) 714 yen is equivalent to $9.11 USD, making them nearly three times the domestic price. It's currently unknown if this test market will expand, or if these are just a store exclusive. We'll keep you updated.

Update: Transformers Prime fans can breath a sigh of relief, Combs has clarified that there will be a at least a fourth season of Transformers Prime.

We have some interesting news regarding the future of Transformers Prime out of Ep-Con 2012 where voice actors Tony Todd (Dreadwing) and Jeffrey Combs (Ratchet) were in attendance. MiraiBaby of fellow fan site TFW2005 attended a panel where Combs stated the upcoming season three would be the last for Transformers Prime:

Unfortunately this iteration of the franchise is coming to an end


He also stated he had just finished his recordings for the last episode of season three, which is slated for 16 episodes.

While this isn't official confirmation that the recently revealed Transformers Season 3 "Beast Hunters" is the overall end of Transformers Prime it's certainly all very interesting.
