We have received a press release regarding the wonderful Children's Museum of Indianapolis exhibit on Transformers: Robots in Disguise, spanning the entirety of the franchise so far, and including some great figures, initiatives and interactive areas for children and children at heart. You can take a look at what Seibertron made of the whole shebang right here and via video here, and head below for an official look at the project!

Inspiring the imagination of kids and adults for generations The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis celebrates 30 years of these heroic robots in TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, opening March 7, 2015.

“Are you an AUTOBOT or a DECEPTICON?” will be asked of visitors entering this unique intergenerational exhibit through giant TRANSFORMERS masks. Inside, children and families will recognize all their favorite characters — from the evil DECEPTICON leader MEGATRON and his archrival, the wise OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOT army, to BUMBLEBEE and STARSCREAM. The exhibit will span the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand, from Generation 1, which debuted in 1984, to the characters from Hasbro’s newest animated series TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – giving every member of the family a chance to share favorite memories.

"TRANSFORMERS prove that ordinary things can become extraordinary with an active imagination and great engineering,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “Just when you thought you were looking at a cool Camaro, you realize that underneath the shell is a giant AUTOBOT with a taste for adventure named BUMBLEBEE. We want families to explore how there really is more to the world than meets the eye and as they learn that together, they will share the joy of puzzle solving and discovery.”

It’s a jet, a car, a dinosaur! It’s a TRANSFORMERS Character!
Since the 1980s, the TRANSFORMERS brand has fascinated children and parents alike with heroic AUTOBOTS and villainous DECEPTICONS. Visitors will be immersed deep inside the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand viewing rare and collectable toys, comics, memorabilia, film props and more!

Prepare to be transported to the future as the exhibit also features the all new animated series, TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, set to debut on the Cartoon Network at 6pm EST on March 14th. Visitors will discover all new characters and a fun action-packed storyline in which BUMBLEBEE must return to Earth and lead a rag tag team of AUTOBOTS who must capture a group of DECEPTICONS on the loose.

With the current flurry of screenings across the US of the 1986 Transformers movie, and the unfortunate news of the passing of actor Leonard Nimoy, it's unsurprising that we hear more from the people involved in its creation, from a cast, crew and other perspectives! Entertainment website Topless Robot has posted a list of ten major points to come out of the Q&A session during the event in LA (which you can also watch for yourself via the embedded clip below!), ranging from Flint Dille, voice director Wally Burr and voice actors Neil Ross and Michael Bell. Check out some of it below, and the full piece here!



TR: Did your writing process change when you began scripting the movie as opposed to the TV show?

Flint Dille: Well, it did from the point of view that we knew this was going to be a very big movie. Of course, the purpose of the movie was not only to have something in theaters, but also to introduce next year's product line. Which meant that we had to first kill off the old product line to make way for the new toys.

TR: So Optimus Prime had to die?

FD: Exactly. We just didn't realize that it was going to bother anybody! :laughs: But I'd argue that had we not killed him, we wouldn't be talking about Transformers right now. Still, we didn't know the can of worms that we were opening when we wrote those scenes.

[...]

Topless Robot: The film world recently lost Leonard Nimoy, who voiced Galvatron in the Transformers animated feature. Can you talk about what he was like to work with?

Wally Burr: Very professional. Business-like. He came in and was ready to work. I asked him if I could give him the profile of what the show was about, to help get him up to speed. And he said "Go ahead." So I did. And when I finished with the full explanation, he said, "Okay, get your director and let's do this." :laughs: He didn't realize that I was the director! He must have thought I was a production assistant or somebody hired by the studio to hold his hand until he was ready to be used.

TR: What about Orson Welles? He came with quite a reputation, I imagine.

WB: With Mister Welles, I was intimidated in advance. Because if you've ever heard any of the outtake reels on him, he could be pretty tough. And he had a right to be! He could look at any script and say, instantly, I know what you need here. The problem was, he didn't want to be directed. But somebody had to coordinate the session, and that's what a voice director does. We coordinator of the cast. Otherwise, they'd overlap each other. The voice director keeps the characters straight, and so on. So I thought I was going to have a lot of problems with Mister Welles. And I did. At one point he was rather slow in his delivery, so I gently said "Mister Welles, this is sounding great. I'm wondering if I can ask you to pick up the tempo just a little bit." And he said, in that voice of his, "I'm reading this as rapidly as I possibly can. And furthermore, I'll do the slating from now on." Well, the voice director usually slates from the recording booth.

[...]

Topless Robot: You both voiced a number of different characters throughout the Transformers film. Did you have any particular favorites to play?

Neil Ross: Yes, I think so. My favorite was called Springer. He could turn into a helicopter at will, and he was just a good, fun, solid hero-type to play. He also didn't involve any throat ripping.

TR: Throat ripping?

NR: :speaks in a painfully scratchy voice: "That's when some of the characters sound like this!"

Some sad news from the UK shores of Auto Assembly headquarters and its founder Simon Plumbe: the biggest, largest, busiest convention in Europe will see its 2015 edition as the final one, at least for the foreseeable future. More announcements will be made in the coming weeks, but read on below and here to find out more about this unfortunate, but understandable and very well motivated, decision.

Hi everyone,

It’s with a great deal of sadness and after a lot of deliberation over the last couple of months, that we have to bring you the news that this year’s convention, Auto Assembly 2015, is going to be our last. Auto Assembly has been running for a long time – 15 years in fact – and has grown immensely since its humble beginnings at the Ibis Hotel in Birmingham when just 31 fans attended the first event run on 22nd October 2000 by myself and Sven Harvey.

[...]

Here at Auto Assembly We’re all committed to making Auto Assembly 2015 something really spectacular and even though We may be bringing the event to a close, we’re certainly planning on going out with a bang!

We will be bringing you updates and information on what will be happening to Auto Assembly over the coming weeks and posting an FAQ here on the website to answer all of the questions that we know all of you are bound to have about what is happening but rest assured that this year’s convention won’t be the last you’ll see of the name Auto Assembly!

"Well, alright, that's not something you see every day..." is what you're thinking, believe me, I did the same thing.

Yexel's Toy Museum has created a 1:1 scale, life sized bust of Movieverse Optimus Prime (1-3, not the AoE redesign) and is hosted in a special display room that features a NEST control room design, as well as a walkway/platform allowing you to get up close and personal.

The only catch? If you want to partake in this once in a lifetime experience, you'll either need to reside in, or catch a plane to, the Philippines. It's moments like this when you wish you had a transporter!

We've mirrored the images below and you can check out their Facebook page, here, to see their other movie replicas, all life sized, of course. When you're done drooling at the overwhelming level of awesome on display, come on back to the forums and share your thoughts. If you're a fan located in the Philippines, we'd love to hear about your experience and if you have any pictures or videos to share, we'd be glad to help get them to the public, so shoot us an email at news@seibertron.com right away!

THE CYBERTRONIC SPREE TO TAKE OVER HISTORIC BLOOR HOT DOCS CINEMA

Rare screening of The Transformers: The Movie (1986) to be followed by performance of entire soundtrack.


Toronto, ON - (March 10, 2015) - The Cybertronic Spree, the world’s premiere Transformers-themed party band, is set to take over Bloor Hot Docs Cinema in Toronto on March 21 at 9 p.m. in an event that includes a rare screening of the cult classic 1986 animated film, The Transformers: The Movie.

"As far I know, this has never been done before," says Hotrod, bassist and leader of The Cybertronic Spree. "And I should know, dammit. I'm in the band and have an impeccable memory." He went on to add, "I'm also quite handsome, by Cybertronian standards."

Hotrod is right. A massive cull of Earth's online databases as well as the memory banks of all living humans has indeed shown that not only have theatrical screenings of The Transformers: The Movie been exceptionally rare, but also that they have never been followed by a live performance of the film's soundtrack by any band, let alone The Cybertronic Spree.

"This screening is due to popular demand," adds Rumble, drummer and sarcastic know-it-all of The Cybertronic Spree. "I kept demanding to the band that we should do this! Mostly I just wanna see that scene where Frenzy and I take down Devastator. Not sure how the Constructicons managed to merge while we were inside Astrotrain's cargo compartment, but that doesn't matter."

What does matter, however, is that attendees are guaranteed an experience they will never forget, and one that they can retell their children and their children's children, much like Autobot Kup regales the Dinobots with his war stories in The Transformers: The Movie.

The takeover coincides with that weekend's Toronto Comicon, with convention pass holders receiving a $5 discount on admission to the takeover event. In addition to the screening and the live music performance, there will be an audience Q&A and fans will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with the band.
