Empire magazine had a poll asking its reader to create the defining list of 100 best movie characters in all cinema history. While Transformers started out (and is still) as a presence on the television, it seems they are now a true staple of cinema since Optimus Prime (the movie version, mind you) was chosen as the 98th greatest movie character of all time. On the list, he beats out Edna Mode from the Incredibles and Randle McMurphy from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. He also technically beats every single movie character ever except for 97 of them.

Here is his entry:

098

Optimus Prime

APPEARANCE: The Transformers series (2007-2014)
CREATOR: Denny O’Neil, Jim Shooter, Bob Budiansky
PERFORMER: Peter Cullen (voice)
DEFINING MOMENT: Riding high on a mecha dinosaur in Age Of Extinction.
FASCINATING FACT: He has his own Mr. Potatohead, called Optimash Prime (“More than meets the fry”).


Here was the top 10 to those who are curious:

1. Indiana Jones
2. James Bond
3. Han Solo (Star Wars)
4. Batman
5. Ellen Ripley (Alien)
6. The Joker
7. John McClane (Die Hard)
8. Tyler Durden (Fight Club)
9. Darth Vader (Star Wars)
10. The Dude (The Big Lebowski)

Via toy blogger Alfes2010, and thanks to a notification from fellow Seibertron.com user and Twincast podcaster xRotorstormx, we get a look at the recently released (exclusively at Toys'R'Us Japan) Black Knight Optimus Prime from the Movie Advanced line. The figure, which you see below, is a redeco of the Armor Knight retool of Leader class Optimus Prime from the fourth live-action film, including the slightly different weapons and the faceplate feature.

Fellow Seibertron.com user SlyTF1 has alerted us to a new article discussing the goings-on at Paramount, and specifically in the writers room for the extended Transformers universe, as IGN caught up with Daredevil's Steven DeKnight on the current situation with Akiva Goldsman's project, and the surprise visit from Steven Spielberg! Read more below, and head here for the full piece.

Taking a page from how a TV show is run, Paramount assembled a big group of experienced writers to help chart out the future of the Transformers film series, under the guidance of Akiva Goldsman, as the studio looks to build more of an expanded Transformers movie universe. I asked DeKnight what the experience was like taking that TV dynamic and using it in film, and he had an enthusiastic reply.

“It's that wonderful thing where features are now taking a page from television and getting people together to really try and plan things out. It was a wonderful experience. Akiva Goldsman was fantastic and Jeff Pinkner, who's co-writing the fifth [Transformers] movie with him was phenomenal. Zak Penn... It was just a room full of brilliant, funny, amazing people. And we spent two and a half weeks in physically the best writers room I've ever seen in my life. Paramount pulled out all the stops. It was phenomenal! We laughed and joked and told stories and plotted out...”

Coming from Variety magazine, we report the news of another acting professional with ties to the Transformers franchise to pass away this year. Actor George Coe, a man whose credits list is truly impressive, from Star Trek to Bones to Gilmore Girls to The West Wing, via Archer and the voice of Que/Wheeljack in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, was 86 and struggling with health.

The staff of Seibertron.com offer their most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.

He voiced the character of Woodhouse in the FX animated series “Archer” and the Autobot Wheeljack in Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

The Hollywood Division of SAG awarded Coe with the Ralph Morgan Award for service to the guild in 2009.

“It is with heavy hearts that our SAG-AFTRA family says goodbye to George Coe,” said SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard. “He was a stalwart unionist and a tremendous presence in our union for many years. He served his fellow actors and the labor movement with conviction and pride. Our deepest condolences go out to his family.”

An interview between Mark Wahlberg and Collider's Christina Radish, for the upcoming Ted 2 movie, adds to the previous rumblings that Michael Bay will return as the director to the 5th installment of the Transformers series.

It's a short quote which went like this:

Collider: Do you have any update on the status of Transformers 5? Have you heard anything about what’s going on?

WAHLBERG: I don’t. Just that Akiva [Goldsman] and those guys are starting to write and break stories, and stuff like that. But [Michael] Bay is in Malta shooting Benghazi, and I’m in New Orleans shooting Deepwater. We’ll get together when he gets back.

Do you think he'll still ultimately direct it?

WAHLBERG: Yes.


Do you think Michael Bay will still ultimately direct it? Do you hope he does? Sound off in the Energon Pub!

A final final update on Akiva Goldsman's writers' room for the Paramount Transformers cinematic Universe comes once more from Deadline, reporting the addition of another writer to the pool: Steven DeKnight, creator of the Spartacus TV series, and showrunner for the recent Marvel Daredevil.

There are also misreadings being posted online claiming that we are about to see at least ten new Transformers films. According to the interview with Goldsman, which we reported here, and can be found in full on Deadline here, the trust will pitch more or less a script each, making it 12 potential stories that Paramount, Michael Bay and producers can (not will) develop into the continuation of the live-action franchise. But what about you? What would you like to see on the screen? Read through the articles, and let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub!

EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures, Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Hasbro started its writers room to hatch Transformers sequels, spinoffs and prequels, and they’ve added the final member of the brain trust. It’s Steven DeKnight, creator of the Starz series Spartacus, and the showrunner on the first season of Marvel’s Daredevil for Netflix.
