Although it is no surprise that after Dark of the Moon's impressive $1.124 billion at the worldwide box office, another transformers film would be made. Merely unofficial rumors, until now. Paramount Pictures is planning a return of Transformers to the big screen, likely in June or July of 2014. No confirmation has been given to the return of Michael Bay, but given the success of the Speilberg/Bay combination, it is probable. ComingSoon.net posted information regarding the announcement and had this to say:
producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura wrote:"We'll be there in the summer of 2014," he confirmed, as well as addressing (albeit vaguely) whether Michael Bay will be returning as director or not. "Michael had a debate because he sort of felt at first that he'd done three. Michael and I are both the same in that we always like to top ourselves. That doesn't necessarily mean bigger. It can be bigger in places, it just means different, but we're going to push really hard as fresh and new as we can be."
What can fans expect for a major motion picture on the 30th anniversary of the brand? Time will tell. To read the full account on Comingsoon.net click here.
Wondering what the deal is with the upcoming Transformers Bot Shots? What size are they? What are the symbols on their chest? Well some answers have surfaced thanks to TimetoPlayMag.com. Bot Shots will feature an advanced Rock/Paper/Scissors style game. By rotating the chest symbol, you can choose Blaster, Fist or Sword, and then slam 2 or more Bot Shots in a head on collision to discover the winner. Transformers Bot Shots will feature Bots and Cons from Generation 1 through the new Movie. Check out the video below for a product demonstration.
Another aspect of the Transformers Bot Shots line may have an online interactive feature. Could this be the website? No official word yet on this site, but we will keep you posted!
The Official Transformers Collector Club Facebook page has been a hot spot today. Recently uploaded there was this in hand image of TFCC 2012 Club Exclusive Runabout! Also rumored to have some in hand robot mode pics tomorrow! Check out the mirrored image below and check out the TFCC Facebook page here!
My Little Pony fansite Equestria Daily is reporting that McDonald's Happy Meals in March will feature a new wave My Little Pony toys and more importantly Transformers Prime toys.
Apparently another wave of ponies is planned for March 9th (though she told me not to quote her on that exact date), along with Transformers on the boys side. They don't know specifically what characters/designs will be available, but she did say they usually try to release new sets, so hopefully something awesome pops up.
Take this with a healthy dose of salt, but the Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" main line may have been found in the US. eBay seller vheryan27 has listed auctions for Deluxe "Robots in Disguise" Soundwave and Cliffjumper in domestic packaging, and claims they were purchased at a California Toys"R"Us location. As you can see in the images mirrored below from the two auctions, the packaging differs from the multi-lingual style that was recently released in the UK and bears the Hub promo sticker. You California members might want to keep an eye out.
Update: .....and it's confirmed! Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" Deluxe wave 1 is in the US. The Allspark member Demovere Xeno purchased Deluxe Wheeljack at a Toys"R"Us location in San Mateo, CA. Get to hunting! What does this mean for the "First Edition" figures beyond wave 1 Deluxe?
Some interesting images have surfaced over on ACToys that appear to be the rumored BotCon 2012 attendee only add-on figure Octopunch. As you can see in the images mirrored below the figure is a repaint of HFTD Voyager Sea Spray in G1 Octopunch's Pretender shell colors with tentacle deco. The figure is packaged the familiar convention style baggy labeled BotCon 2012. This is consistent with the list of potential BotCon 2012 figures we published earlier, which stated this figure will also feature a new head mold.
