This is a blast (hah!) from the past, as we bring you yet another, nay, three other updates to the Seibertron.com movieverse galleries - specifically, Transformers: Age of Extinction and the Takara Tomy counterpart, Movie Advance!

The images below will take you to the definitely not Tracks figure we just saw in our latest post, Generations Hot Shot - a redeco of main cast member with a cape/trenchcoat Crosshairs. And moving back to the green bots, we have the Hasbro and Takara versions of the deluxe stegosaurus Dinobot with translucent green ..bits - Snarl. See if you can spot all the differences in colour scheme by checking out the pics right here.

Michael Bay Confirms he is Directing Transformers 5 and Movie Scenes are Described

Michael Bay talked about Transformers 5 during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine regarding his film 13 Hours (about Benghazi). During this talk, he does confirm that he is "doing" Transformers 5, as Mark Walhberg had speculated. The context of these quotes below is Michael Bay revising various special effects done by the ILM team while being interviewed by Rolling Stone :

Between his producing duties and directorial work, Bay usually has a half-dozen projects going at once. Right now, in addition to 13 Hours, he's doing post-production on the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which he's producing and which is due in 2016, and pre-production for the next Transformers, which he's directing for summer 2017. "I'm doing Transformers ... 5, is it?" Bay says, temporarily losing track. He shakes his head. "I've taken on a lot of work."


Finally, there's Transformers. They show Bay an underwater rendering of a crash-landed alien spaceship, then a new dump-truck Transformer with a cloak. Neither are up to snuff. "Boy, I've got a lot of work to do," Bay says, shaking his head. "I better finish this fucking 13 Hours movie." He thanks ILM and kills the video link, then turns to me. "It's not good when I'm not involved."

"The movie industry has really changed," Bay says, apropos of nothing. "The middle-[budget] movie is basically gone. They just want these big movies." (The irony of this statement goes unremarked-upon.) "Transformers, I still have a great time. It's fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else."

I remind Bay that he said the same thing before each of the last two Transformers movies. "I know," he says. "J.J. [Abrams] told me, 'You're the only guy that could do this.' But it's time to move on. One more."

Lot #1325.1 - When it came to creating the first live-action "Transformers" movie, the most important characterization was certainly that of "Optimus Prime." An entire team of artists and illustrators worked tirelessly, drawing potential trucks and cars, trying to zero in on just the right look for each robot/vehicle. When the film's production designer showed Michael Bay a photo of the enormous Peterbilt tractor, the director was immediately taken by the lines and size of the truck, even through he know he would face intense criticism for his choice - in the same way he did for selecting a GM Camaro in place of the original VW Beetle known as the beloved robot Bumblebee. Both of Bay's picks ended up enthralling new audiences as well as diehard fans of the sci-fi series. The Peterbilt, a more aggressive truck, was also used as Bay's tip-of-the-hat to Steven Spielberg's 1971 film, "Duel." This vehicle is one of the tractors used. It was a picture and stunt vehicle and is being sold "AS-IS" and "WITH ALL FAULTS" and is subject to execution of a Paramount Waiver. **SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY.

New Writers for Transformers 5 Script, Akiva Goldmans Moves to Other Hasbro / Paramount Projects

Via entertainment media website Deadline, we have some news regarding the Paramount project for Transformers 5 and the expanded universe led by Akiva Goldsman - who appears to have been moved from the direct writing of the script for the next movie, and will be heading a similar project for the G.I. Joe and Micronauts franchises instead. Read more on this below, and head here for the full story!

After their Akiva Goldsman-led Writers Room experiment led to at least three movie ideas to extend Transformers, Hasbro and Paramount have set Goldsman to supervise a Writers Room for their G.I. Joe movie series. And they will go the same route with Goldsman to draft ideas for the Hasbro property Micronauts, with Goldsman supervising that as well.

This change of duties means Goldsman will supervise but won’t write the next Transformers installment. Paramount now is negotiating with Writers Room participants Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Black Hawk Down scribe Ken Nolan to write the script together. That course change was cemented by Paramount, Hasbro, Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Don Murphy.

Hasbro's Investor day just took place and we have the presentation slides as well as the accompanying audio for everyone interested:

PDF
Audio

Out own Scotty P (podcaster extraordinaire) has his own commentary to lead fans through it:

Hasbro's Investor Day presentation was yesterday.

Some things of note:

Slide 20 (see first image below) has TF5 teaser logo (nothing exciting), and some new product called "Alt Modes" - looks like keychains or something but it's a very small image.
Slide 23 (see second image below) has the TF brand revenue (revenue to Hasbro, not retail sales to consumers! HUGE difference!) chart that we've seen in previous years updated to include the 9 months out of this year so far. Pretty good start for them.
Slide 34 talks about expanding footprint into more global markets.
Some new Kre-o product on Slide 37, but it does not look to be Transformers related. Read elsewhere it is a Chinese market exclusive line.
Slide 38 (see third image below): appears to announce Micronauts return - as a crossover with Transformers. Kind of cool considering Micronauts' roots as Microman.
I enjoyed the financial slides. Interesting bit on 61 about slightly increasing resin costs expected for 2016.
Slide 65 mentions a new e-commerce site. Direct to consumer sales or just B2B?

Poor GI Joe. Also no sign of M.A.S.K. which was on the last (I think last, maybe the one before last) Investor presentation.

Akiva Goldsman Talks Transformers Writers' Room and the Human Element

IGN has posted a short interview with the head of the Transformers movies writers' room Akiva Goldsman where he talks about the writers' room process and the human aspect of the movies. A snippet of the interview is below, click here for the whole thing.

IGN Movies: I wanted to ask about Transformers and what the writers' room process has been like -- because obviously that's commonplace for television, but not so much for movies. How has it been working with TV heavy-hitters like Steven DeKnight and Robert Kirkman on this franchise?

Akiva Goldsman: The room was honestly as delightful an experience as I've had. I think that we were just lucky enough to have a lot of good folks, all of whom were very generous. You know, I lurked around Fringe, and I learned a lot there. When you have a bunch of people who you respect, who are smart and talented, all trying to help each other figure stuff out, it's good whether you're all in a car heading across country for a road trip or a marriage and a family or a writers' room.

Currently taking place is the MIPJunior event, during which Hasbro has a presence in its Licensing and Entertainment department director Stephen Davis. During a keynote speech, embedded below for your viewing pleasure, Davis talked about the Akiva Goldsman-led writers' room at PAramount, and confirmed not only the fifth live-action movie but a whole series of pitches until at least 2025 (as a plan) - with a sixth, seventh and eighth chapter in the works too!

Brief mention for the other screen Transformers presence, Robots in Disguise, which is definitely a tweaked continuation of Transformers: Prime, at least from the corporate side of things. Information starts around the 10.30 minute mark- check it out.


Stephen J. Davis will discuss how the world famous toy company has transformed itself into a 360º entertainment provider, extending its brands across a range of experiences including film, TV, digital, music, licensing, theme parks and live events.
Stephen J. Davis is responsible for Hasbro's Entertainment and Licensing segment, including developing, producing and distributing Hasbro content globally across all platforms through Hasbro Studios as well as oversight of the company's licensing business.

A G1 color scheme on a newer mold figure is nothing new, it's been used for quite some time in the Transformers toy collecting world, but sometimes those color choices take solidly designed molds and really make 'em pop.

Our next two figures in question are no slouches and stand out quite a bit. Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest galleries:

Generations GDO Leader Class Starscream and Ironhide!

These Asian region exclusives take two of the best movieverse Leader Class molds and redresses them to look like their G1 counterparts and both wear it well. Especially Ironhide, who is an excellent figure and is not one to be passed over, in any color scheme. Starscream is second only to ROTF Optimus Prime, he's that solid of a Leader Class figure and he looks like he stepped right out of the screen. What better way to make him look all pretty than to slap on his G1 counterpart's coat of many colors?

You can see the original molds in our galleries here and here, and check out their cooler than cool repaints below:
