Transformers movie fan SlyTF1 dropped by to let us know that Micheal Bay's Instagram account has been updated with a new video showing off a brand new camera that is being used on the set of Transformers: The Last Knight. The new camera is a small, handheld, high-quality camera and is considered the most advanced of its kind. They affectionately named the camera "Bayhem" and put it through its paces in the United Kingdom filming a big explosive scene. Check out the video by going to the link below!

Meet Ultra Magnus and Galvatron
Two of the most powerful commanders in the Transformers universe are making their way through the Space Bridge this weekend!
Soldier, law enforcer, staunch defender of Autobot principles, Ultra Magnus is all these things and more.
But while he is comfortable following orders, he isn't as happy giving them. The mantle of leadership doesn't sit easily on his shoulders, though with his indomitable courage and gift for battlefield improvisation under fire, he'd be the perfect choice.
In many ways, he simply leads by example.
Fire 21 rockets scattered in a line across the target. Followed by 3 big guided missiles which hit for high damage.
It's hard to imagine a more pitiless, monstrous tyrant than Megatron, but Galvatron is it.
He's Megatron to the nth degree and even more powerful than his past/former self. Remade by Unicron, Galvatron's conceit and thirst for conquest and dominance are second to none.
He is power personified, an unstoppable force that knows no upper limit when it comes to sheer mayhem and carnage.
Blast a distant target dealing high damage. Heavily damages everything in line with the target and around it.
Join us LIVE on Thursday September 1st @ 4PM UTC for a Q&A with comic writing legend Simon Furman. We’ll be chatting about Ultra Magnus, Galvatron and more of your favorite bots from the G1 Universe!
Some of you may remember a time many years ago during the height of the Generation 1 era when Ladybird Books published several books about our favorite robots in disguise. Well, it appears that Ladybird is once again stepping up to the Transformers plate.
Via 2 listings on Amazon, we have learned that Ladybird is indeed doing more Transformers books. The listings don't have any cover art or anything yet, but what we do get are a release date of January 2017, a length of 16 pages for both, and a price of $4.70. Check out the listings below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
Over the last few weeks, Machinima's Combiner Wars series has been uploaded to the relatively new Go90 service for US viewers, while non-US viewers got the episodes on Youtube a few hours later. However, if any US viewers are having problems with Go90; it seems Machinima planned all along to later release the episodes on Youtube for US viewers anyway! Embedded below is a 10-minute episode that combines Episodes 1 and 2, available for US viewers but not for European or Canadian viewers who already got the episodes through youtube. Have a watch below and tell us if the two flow well into each other!
It's also worth noting that the Youtube videos released weekly for non-US viewers still didn't work for some areas outside the US. So far we have been able to ascertain that this new link works for US viewers and not for Europe, Canada or Asia; but feel free to confirm what other countries this new video may or may not work for!
In further Transformers: The Last Knight news, we have a new behind the scenes clip from the official Transformers movie Facebook page - as notified by Seibertronian overlord Burn - featuring the 'street kids' that we've seen accompany Isabela Moner, play around with director Michael Bay, and talking about getting chased by a Transformers. Check it out embedded below!
It will come as no surprise to people following the news on Transformers - from the Tencent game, to CybertronCon, to the recent Sun Wu Kong rumour, and all the way back to the Age of Extinction collaboration - but China is one of the biggest developing markets and audiences for the robot brand, and the general manager of Hasbro China also believes it to be the case. Speaking to China Daily, Zhang Yuchen had this to say:
The Transformers may have been around for more than three decades, but Zhang Yuchen, general manager of Hasbro China, the parent company of the brand, believes that the popularity of the iconic toy figures are just about to hit its peak, especially with four Transformers films set to hit the silver screens by 2025.
Zhang is optimistic that with the surge in nostalgia for the toys and the growing profitability of selling peripheral products from a movie in China, 2017 could very well be “the year of Transformers”.
“It’s been very exciting because over the last decade, the movie universe has given old fans something new and brought in a whole new generation of Transformers fans. That is probably one of the biggest forces driving Transformers in China,” said Zhang.
“We now expect to see explosive growth in the sale of Transformers products in China with the upcoming series of movies,” he added.
Similar trends have been noticed with the 2007 Paramount live-action movie in Western markets, too, so this is not entirely new. What is new is that the brand is looking to make a big mark in the country through media, movies, games, toys and a themed hotel in Shanghai in 2018. Remember:
The second installment of the movie franchise, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen broke the 12-year box office record set by Titanic to become the most-watched foreign movie in China.
In 2014, the fourth movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, generated 300 million yuan ($45 million) in China, contributing to almost one-third of the global revenue. The upcoming one in the franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, is scheduled to be released in 2017.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Mr Skram, we have a new Youtube video relevant to the recent animated Combiner Wars Machinima series - a stop-motion battle featuring Windblade, the Constructicons and Victorion by youtube user counter656, sponsored by Machinima. Perhaps most notably, it shortly contains a yet-to-be-seen clip of the actual series before the stop-motion battle starts. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
New week, new Tuesday, new episode of the Machinima animated series Transformers: Combiner Wars! The fifth episode is titled Homecoming, and is currently available for US viewers via Verizon's go90 streaming service here. Later today, we will update this story with the Machinima official YouTube link, which works for viewers outside of the US - though not all regions, somehow. Also coming later, our regular review of the episode, so keep your optics tuned on Seibertron.com!
Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another exciting episode that features your host, ScottyP along with Counterpunch, Tigertracks and xRotorstormx. Sit down, stand up, get hype and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news and reveals.
We start this episode off with a new reveal that looks as if they could be The Misfits (from Jem of course). Takara unvealed the next United Warriors box set Megatoronia and it is full of day glow goodness but, what does the crew think of this bright reveal?
Up next, we decided to change things up a bit and dive right in to some listener questions which reminds us...too much is never enough. When can collections go too far, and have any of the crew had to identify that moment in their own lives?
After that, we bring the mood down a little and tug at your heartstrings with a few stories of when collecting was not all fun and games. We come out the other end looking for positives and lessons, so who knows, this podcast might just teach you something this week.
The new Robots in Disguise "Clash of the Transformers" toys are starting to hit shelves and a few of us were lucky enough to get their hands on a few. We share our impressions and briefly discuss the high and low points of each character, ponder about instructions, and get completely stumped trying to identify an axe.
The TFCC exclusive Skywarp has started to arrive with a very interesting package. We've also received the last 2 figures in this years TFCC Subscription Service, Impactor and (Blue) Bluestreak but with only 4 months left in 2016, will Sub Service 5 make it? The crew discusses this, plus gives their overall impression on these newest club figures. Also: unused Beast Wars Uprising concepts, and the groaning that follows.
The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop on August 9th, but something was different this year. There didn't seem to be a rush to get the exclusives. Why was this, and why did one podcaster go 'all-in' with this year's products anyhow?
Thanks to Toys R Us Canada, we've seen a sort-of surprise sneak peak of the upcoming Titans Return Doublecross. With not much to go on, the speculation starts to run wild as we hope for better looks of upcoming toys very soon.
We close out this episode with a segment you cannot possibly be prepared for. What is this crazy segment, you may wonder? Well, it involves the Battle Beasts.
And Bragging Rights.
Yep, buckle up, because it's time for the first ever, super awesome, mega extreme, ultra gear Battle Beasts Bragging Rights. Join in the fun via site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store by getting your own fire lion here.
Then real bragging rights wrap up another episode, where the IDW topics got cut for time so stay tuned in about two weeks for thoughts on some of the latest comics and perhaps just some of the earliest too. What does it mean? You'll have to come back next time to find out!

In almost entirely different Transformers movie news, and please grab your salt bags here, there is a new rumour out there - based on an image shown by Weibo user Jam占母 - that is hinting at a Chinese project featuring both the Cybertronians and Sun Wukong, or The Great Monkey King, one of China's biggest stories, and the inspiration behind the Dragonball series (among many many other things). Check out the image below, and let us know what you make of this - if anyone who can read Chinese could help with the text on the right in the image, please do comment and help out!
