The BotCon 2007 Customizing class figure of Grimlock is to be repainted as a Transformer named Overkill, based off the original Decepticon cassette from 1987. GetterDragun notified Seibertron earlier this morning about this. GetterDragun attended the class earlier today. Hopefully we'll have pics soon.
To help promote their "Transform Your Ride" sale, GM has released new commercials to promote their vehicles as well as the Transformers Movie.
The new advertisements feature different Transformers giving pedestrians new reasons to buy a car. Check out the adverts featuring Blackout, Optimus Prime and Megatron. More of these may be out, so keep your eyes peeled.
These commercials keep up with the slightly comedic advertisements we've seen produced for Burger King and Mountain Dew.
The Transformers Movie producers have been very busy as of late doing interviews. There is a new interview with Lorenzo di Bonaventura. SuperHero Hype was able to catch up with the producer. Read the interview here.
There is yet another new article about the Transformers Movie. The latest article has been posted at The Hollywood Reporter. The article talks about how the movie is tied to product placements. Read it for yourself by clicking here.
We have know for some time now that there would be a Burger King commercial that would help promote the Transformers Movie. Well, now the commercial is airing of T.V. and has made its way to the net. Here it is:

Here are some snippets:
Guido Guidi Interview
[CYBPH] Tell us a little about yourself.
[GG] I’m born and raised in Italy, but actually I’m half from Switzerland… always loved to draw since I was 4… my first drawings were the dinosaurs seen in the science books!
[CYBPH] How did you get into Transformers?
[GG] I was already got hooked with Diaclone and Microman in 1984, then next year the Hasbro’s Transformers were the natural evolution of things, and my interest increased even more (I was 12 years old)
I remember the Dinobots being my favourites. the thing I really loved was the fact the Transformers were sentient robots, a concept I always loved.
This is when I started drawing TF !
[Josh] Heh. Can of worms kinda question here eh? Lets see….me? Well…I’m 21 years old. I live way out here in Central Oregon [beautiful place. Come here if you like snowboarding and the great outdoors :P] Believe it or not I do have a life outside of coloring [although a lot of times it doesn’t feel like it, hehe]. I love my Jesus. Play the drums in my church [not half badly too, if I may say so xD]. I love life and I just try to make the best of it. I love art. I love music. I love creating. Its all good. Hehe. [man, this has turned into quite the “matchmaker.com” kinda question eh? Lol. Moving on >___>]
[CYBPH] How did you get into Transformers?
[Josh] You can blame that on my Mom. She bought me my first Transformer when I was like 2 years old. She got me Targetmaster Kup for Easters [whom I still have and keep on display with my 200 other Transformers xD]. I dunno. I liked ‘em. She kept buying ‘em. Its all been downhill ever since. I went through a spurt where I kinda forgot about Transformers. [Power Rangers was the hawtness around that time.] and I didn’t get back into it until Beast Wars. I got a couple of the toys [Terrorsaur and Snapper] and I didn’t believe they were real transformers! Haha! I thought they were some knock-off another company was making, trying to cash in on the old TF idea. I stumbled over the show one morning [one with obvious G1 reference] and I got to thinking “ya know...maybe this IS real after all!” and I got re-hooked. Been an avid fan ever since!
Fender Bender and I are on our way to O'Hare Airport. The adventure begins! Stay tuned for more BotCon updates throughout the next 5 days. Oh ... and don't forget to vote for Seibertron.com if you are attending this weekend!
Australian fans should hit the stores as I hear they’re going like the proverbial hotcakes – we’ve got reorders coming in all the time so a good idea to reserve a copy.
Our major prize promotion is also going up today so Australian G1 fans can start making entries to win an Xbox 360, the Transformers game, and a truckload of other stuff. The whole front end of www.madman.com.au is being taken over by TRANSFORMERS.
