Mercurynews.com- What exactly do poker tournaments and Transformers have in common besides some Double Dealing? Henry Orenstein...

Who is Henry Orenstein you might ask? A Holocaust survivor turned toymaker, turned inventor, turned 80 year old poker tournament champ, Orenstein is credited in the early 80's with convincing HASBRO to market and produce Transformers toys in the U.S.

Besides being so important to our community and the history of our toys, he has also invented the idea for the hole card camera, used when televising poker tournaments to show observers the cards that the players have in their holes, allowing us to know what they know without the other players in the game knowing, and allowing commentators to better analyze play. For this invention he is being enshrined in the 'Poker Hall Of Fame'.

You can read the short article here.

Thanks to Scaleface for also digging up that he patented rub sign technology!!! Whoa!

Thanks to a tip from Seibertron.com member, Autobot420, we have found out about an interview happening tonight on the radio that many may want to listen to. The one and only voice of Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime, Neil Kaplan, will be a guest on RVD radio hosted by former Professional Wrestling star, Rob Van Dam.

Topics will include Halloween, Ghost Stories, Spirituality, Hollywood, RVD TV and Pro Wrestling. The episode will air TONIGHT from 6-8 Pacific, 9-11 Eastern. Apparently you can call (347) 308 8754 to share your ghost encounters, or in our case there is no reason we can't ask Neil about his work on Transformers.

To listen to the show online, click here.

Update:

The replay of the show is now available. The primary topic of the night was Halloween and ghost stories, but things got a little side tracked as Transformers were brought into the discussion by board member Autobot420.

Autobot420's call begins at around the 38 minute mark with his own ghost story, then in about 10 minutes the topic changes, bringing Neil Kaplan into the fray.

Movie News has been a bit slow lately.

Some filming in Paris, and in Egypt (recently completed). Looks like the end of filming is near.

According to the Celebrity-Gossip.Net, Shia has landed back in LA, as he was spotted on Monday making his way through LAX.

The site also states that his portion (and the other on film actors and actresses) of the movie has wrapped, and The Live Action Movie Blog believes we should get an official announcement of the filming being wrapped up any day.

Looks like we can add yet another Transformers related reference in another pop culture item.

"I am currently watching NBC's "Chuck" and they just played Stan Bush's "The Touch" from the Transformers Cartoon Movie. First time I've heard that song used anywhere else.

I'm such a Goober LOL!"


Of course, this is not the first time 'The Touch' has made it into other movies or television, but it is the most recent (Try wikipedia-- "Boogie Nights").

In a previous report here at Seibertron.com, we informed you that Jon Voight, who played Secretary of Defense Keller in Transformers the Movie, had stated that he will not be returning for the sequel to the film.

MTV Movie Blogs sat down with the actor recently and caught Mr. Voight pushing for a cameo:

“I should be able to make a cameo,” Voight said. “That’s a good idea. Let’s talk to those guys about that.”

Mr. Voight then went on to tell MTV Movie Blogs that making Transformers was a lot of fun and that Director Michael Bay did a brilliant job. But as far as a return, it wouldn't come without benefit to the character Voight played:

“It all depends on the plot, of course,” he said, “and what the plot needs, you know. But the Secretary of Defense, we want to know what happens to him. Was there a new administration that came in? Maybe he ran for president. Maybe he became president.”

Jon Voight as President in the movie? Better yet, a Secretary of Defense running for office and winning? Well, anything's possible.

Transformers Movie director Michael Bay has updated his website's news blog with a brief comment on the filming of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Egypt and on Universal's anticipatory Transformers: The Ride, to be completed in 2011.

The director seems less than thrilled. Read his message on his site by clicking here.

The shooting in the the Middle East is ground breaking - an awesome time had by all the crew.

The Transformer Ride at Universal making all the press rounds - not sure yet - they had me in a press release saying I supported it - but Universal has a long way to go in my mind. I don't support it - I'm not involved and not sure the story of the ride works, and I know Optimus is not going to just show up to be directed by some new people that have never worked with him. I hate when people bullshit a quote from me that I never said.

I'll keep you informed. Maybe the guy making the rides at Universal will direct Transformers 3????

Bay
