Via a number of assorted Facebook pages and users, including Transformers Cars and Michael Merrell, we have some more shots of the vehicles currently being used in Arizona for the filming of Transformers: The Last Knight. Most notably, the military vehicles with the Stargate-esque triangle/arrow/A symbol, the VW rusty van, and some South Dakota State Trooper SUVs - along with more Camaro Bumblebee, of course - though not all are necessarily Cybertronian in origin. Check them out below, along with two more clips from Kayleigh Lauzon on Instagram!
From MichaelBay.com we get a first look of the vehicle mode of Decepticon Barricade, confirming that he will be returning to the live action universe To Punish and Enslave! Check out Barricade in his new police vehicle alt mode mirrored below and remember keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in Transformers 5: The Last Knight news and updates!
We have just received word of a filming site for The Last Knight that will be coming up. In the area of Norther Phoenix, the northern-most section of Loop 303 from I-17 west to Lake Pleasant Parkway will be closed for 'permit activity,' this permit activity the filming of The Last Knight. A note provided to us is that this freeway is not yet complete as it is being built out. It also has no development leading up to it, with only desert and some small mountains in the area shut off. This section of road is also not very far from a dam and Lake Pleasant, which makes it very similar to the Roosevelt Lake area where The Last Knight is currently filming. Anyone out in that area should be able to catch some glimpses of stuff as it is brought in and maybe even some of the action in progress.
Fellow Seibertronians, hot on the heels of the image of the new military Autobot, we bring you news from deezy_ftw on Instagram of a mysterious new vehicle that, while not bearing an obvious faction symbol - is toting around a lot of junk, could this be a certain fan favorite Junkion? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Since posting a very small news story in the Comics section - about the role of ROM the Spaceknight in IDW's REVOLUTION crossover event - we've been mulling over this piece from Forbes, in which the author links the new The Last Knight font with ROM's traditional one in the Marvel comics.
Several Seibertronians have thrown around a comment about ROM being the titular Last Knight in jest, but thinking about it - is it not possible that this is indeed the beginning of the wider Hasbro universe? Why the sudden change in fonts? Why does Galvatron/Megatron look like a Dire Wraith - ROM's main antagonists in the comics - made out of metal?
While we're at it, compare the tagline in the image below, with the one used for the Morse code teaser, 'Something Wicked This Way Comes'. And remember the creators?
As the author of the Forbes piece says, there are some parallels in the visual - but is that where it stops? According to Chris Ryall, definitely maybe. Check out more below, and rev your speculation engines in the Energon Pub!
As I said before: “we know Hasbro has movie plans for Rom, the old Parker Brothers toy that was one of the first action figures to include electronic lights and sounds. He’s slated to be part of a shared cinematic universe that will also include the Micronauts, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., and the Visionaries. It was assumed that Transformers would stay out of it, having previously announced plans for a spin-off universe of their own, and generally not needing the help. Even Age of Extinction, the lowest-grossing Transformers movie domestically (besides the animated one from the ’80s), raked in $1.1 billion worldwide, while the last G.I. Joe movie pulled in a ‘mere’ $375 million internationally. And yet: isn’t that how Marvel launched their cinematic universe? Using the popular character to segue into the riskier ones?”
Even if Rom isn’t happening, his iconography is being used. And as Rom is the least-known to the casual toy collector – aside from some convention exclusives, he hasn’t had a proper action figure of his own in decades – he is the one who needs the biggest push.
It’s time to transform him for the modern world…and roll out.
By sideways of a Nerdist interview with IDW Publishing's Chris Ryall and Christos Gage - some of the minds behind not only ROM the Spaceknight, but also September's giant status quo shake REVOLUTION - we have a tidbit of info to be added to the compiled news from Twitter after the announcement here: the connection between MASK and Transformers, and the involvement on ROM in all of this - including Paramount's The Last Knight live-action movie. Check out the snippet below, and the full piece here!
But Autobots and M.A.S.K. both have transforming technology—is there already a connection there? Ryall responds, “That’s an excellent question that I’m going to say will be answered within the pages of the Revolution event series.”
Naturally I had to ask if they were aware of my theory, as seen on Nerdist News, that the marketing for the new Transformers movie is hinting at ROM. The answers were…interesting.
“I got a lot of e-mails after that article got out there,” says Gage. “I think it’s pretty close to the original ROM logo.”
“It worried me,” says Ryall. “I want there to be a ROM movie, but I would like it to just sort of be a new continuity, not something that’s tacked on.”
After the initial shots and videos posted yesterday, we have some closer, cleaner images of the Transformers vehicles - including Bumblebee, Barricade, and a number of military vehicles, a new Decepticon truck, the rusty VW van, and the motorbike - from the shooting site of The Last Knight in Arizona! Mirrored below from Instagram user Kayleigh Lauzon and TransformersCars, check them out and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.
Thanks to youtuber Clayton Huggins we now have a pair of videos showing off the current cars being filmed for The Last Knight out in Arizona right now. The videos show Bumblebee in his new camaro mode, the Hound-like truck, a green towtruck rumored to be a new bot, and all the filming cars and some other military vehicles, suggesting this scene being filmed has heavy military involvement. Check out the videos below. The filming was happening at Roosevelt Lake in Arizona.
