A new interview has been sent to us via Seibertronian Stuartmaximus where Santiago Cabrera talks about his role in the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie. The interview was done in Spanish, so some translation is necessary if you don't speak the language. In the interview, Cabrera talks about how he was looking at movie roles, and joined up with Transformers when the casting director for another movie he was interested in pointed him in that direction.
While he did not know really anything about Transformers, he decided to give it a try. He would then attend an interview with Micheal Bay, who hired him on for the movie. Cabrera would talk about in the interview how this movie was a big opportunity for him, seeing as how it will be his first blockbuster and it is a largely successful movie series.
Cabrera would also go on to talk a little bit about his character in the movie.
Spoiler Alert Below!
In the movie, Cabrera's character is a retired military man who is now head of an organization called TRF that hunts down Earth-based Transformers, sort of like a successor to Cemetery Wind. It can be guessed that this organization is also home to former Major Lennox, who is returning in the movie and has been seen filming with Cabrera. Cabrera also let slip he would be down for returning in Transformers 6, suggesting his character would survive the film.

Hasbro Pulse has released some information about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee figure! The press release contains mostly information that we knew about previously, but is still here to give you a little more in-depth information on the upcoming Masterpiece. Read up on the release below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
3 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE BUMBLEBEE MASTERPIECE FIGURE
The news has broken, and the excitement is spilling out in waves. The Masterpiece Bumblebee figure will soon be available, and we assume you—the fans, collectors, and more—have some questions. As a preemptive strike, here are 3 things to know about this monumental action figure!
So…when exactly CAN we get it? And what will it cost me?
Short answer: Soon! Longer answer: The Masterpiece Bumblebee figure was created for ages 8 and up, and is slated for release in summer 2017. It has an MSRP of $79.99.
Is this modeled after the TF 5 Bumblebee, an earlier incarnation, or something different all together?
This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure is based on the first Transformers live action movie using some die-cast parts to commemorate the film’s 10th anniversary . .
Timeout. Does it convert?
Does it ever! Much like in the first Transformers live action movie, Bumblebee converts from his dynamic, Autobot scout form into a 2006 Chevy Camaro concept car. The figure also has a whopping 33 points of articulation, making it a collectable, and versatile figure. The design premise allows fans to articulate the figure into all sorts of movie-accurate poses!
A fellow Transformers fan and user of fellow fansite TFW2005 (Prime135s) has done some more digging in the Toys'R'Us system on those placeholder listings for The Last Knight toyline, as first seen here. We have some interesting additions to make, along with visual confirmation, about the Mars and Jupiter listings, with some decent enough guesswork for Saturn too - all under the Masterpiece monicker - resulting in Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and probably Barricade, or some form of car in the same price range of $79.99 as Bumblebee, anyway. Optimus/Jupiter is shown as $99.99.
The rest of the listings show the name of Power Cube Figures ($14.99), along with a Starter Pack called All Spark ($39.99). Plus, we get a potentially dinotastic box set, with 5 currently still unnamed figures plus Slug - and it's a combiner pack, to boot, for $34.99. Will we be seeing a Dinobot combiner with the return of the team since Age of Extinction? Lastly, we have mention of a Planet Cybertron figure, in two size classes and price points, $149.99 and $39.99 (deluxe). Deluxes are priced at $19.99, and Legion 2-packs at $15.99. Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
We now have access to the third TV trailer for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie! The new trailer continues the trend of the previous 2, using footage from the original trailer with a different order. The trailer is titled 'Stand and Fight' after Isabela Moner's line "I want to stay and I want to fight." You can check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
Via the Facebook group HK-TF, and its user Victor Wong (plus a clip from Toys Daily) we have a look at a redeco of Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime which will come out in the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight toyline. It is part of the Premiere Edition subline with a rusty paintjob, according to the packaging (which also shows red Drift). There is also a Bumblebee figure present and it is unsire if it is simply the Revenge of the Fallen Batle Ops Bee on display or if there are some new parts to him. There is the original MPM-2 box from 2010 present, confusing the matter. What do you fans make of this? Do you see something new to that Bumlebee? You can check out the pictures below and speculate away in the Energon Pub.
Via some internet magicks, and some further digging on online retailer Amazon, the Canada version, we have what appears to be the full list of upcoming figures from the Transformers: The Last Knight movie, due in theaters in Summer 2017. Much like for Age of Extinction, they're all given a nickname (moving away from Rocky and into astronomy), no images, no pricepoint, but a general description and the classes - as you can see in the breakdown below (Legion, Deluxe, and Voyager). What do you think? Which character is which? Does this get some sort of interest ready for the new toyline? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

SlyTF1 is at it once again, giving us news that Transformers: The Last Knight has dropped its second TV trailer spot. Only a brief 15 second trailer, this new trailer is titled "Keep Coming" and features rearranged footage seen in the original release trailer. The title, along with the footage, may suggest some sort of Earth v. Cybertron battle to come in the upcoming 5th installment. Check out the trailer, and speculate below!
Not entirely related to the Transformers movie-verse - in fact, there is practically nothing at all here - but a new interview over on CinemaBlend with comics creator Rob Liefeld has shown how Akiva Goldsman, the producer in charge of the Writers' room that produced the scripts to be used in the upcoming The Last Knight, Bumblebee spin-off and probably more sequels after those, approached the whole shared universe of Hasbro properties. Check out the relevant snippets below!
Since 2015, Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman has become a big name in the world of cinematic universe franchises. In collaboration with Paramount Pictures, he not only created a braintrust that would help formulate the future of the Transformers series, but also went on to do the same thing with Hasbro and brands like G.I. Joe and ROM: Space Knight. We haven't seen an actual product from this process just yet, as none of the developing projects have made it to release -- but the methodology is continuing to spread, as the same approach that's going into the construction of the recently-announced Extreme Cinematic Universe.
[Liefeld:] So I kind of was thinking, 'I'm going to go to this meeting and maybe I'll get a good look at some Dark Tower stuff,' and what ended up happening is he goes, 'I want to hand you this giant black leather-bound equivalent of a phone book,' and it said, "The Transformers Bible." This thing is awesome and Akiva goes, 'I just want you to know, there's only eight of these in existence. Michael Bay has one, I have one, the head of Paramount has one, and the five other people involved have them.' So I flipped through it, and it's every treatment, outlines, screenplay, for the lineup of Transformer films that they have planned, that he was a showrunner for...
So he said to me, he said, 'It's pretty cool, right? I'm like, 'Yeah!' He's like, 'I ran this room; this is what we came up with. This is what I did on behalf of Paramount.' He goes, 'In a couple months, I'm going to go run the Hasbro room, and we're going to do the same thing for ROM, Micronauts, G.I. Joe. We're going to put together this Hasbro Cinematic Universe, and then he said, I would like to do yours next. And I said, 'Uhhhhhh, Okay, WOW!'
Following the new TV spot for the upcoming Paramount release in the Transformers film franchise - The Last Knight, out this summer - we also have a new still image from the movie via USA Today, featuring cast members Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yaeger and Laura Haddock, seemingly exploring the ruins of some type of structure. Join the speculation game in the Energon Pub after checking it out below!
Seibertronian SlyTF1 was able to find for us a new TV spot for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight! The new TV spot is only 13 seconds long and only uses footage from the original trailer, but it advertises the coming theme for the movie: choosing a side between Megatron the Knight, Optimus Prime the apparently evil-for-some-reason Knight, and little yellow Autobot hero Bumblebee. You can check out the trailer below, and discuss the coming movie in the forums below!
