Another interview with Transformers Movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura as popped up on the net. This time with the Movie Reporter. Aside from the new GI Joe movie, di Bonaventura also had a few things about Transformers. When asked about Megatron, he had the following to say.

"We're trying to hold him back from everybody, you know, it's like, entertainment is, I'm going to paraphrase something Warren Beatty said a few months ago, I read it in the paper and I thought it's so damn simple and it's perfectly profound, he said the most important element of entertainment is surprise. And I thought, I hadn't really thought about it that way, but it's true and one of the things that's been, I won't say frustrating because it's the wrong word but one of the things we've just had to deal with is people's constant attention and people constantly trying to...you know the art department had like 39,000 hacks the first month on, or attempted hacks on their thing. So, the good news for us is that nobody has seen the robots in final form because they are not final yet, we haven't either, so, everybody is making this assumption of what they're going to look like, but, you haven't seen them yet so you can't, they're wrong. They're close in a couple cases but they're not there yet and Megatron will be one of the last ones on purpose because we are hoping to finish I'll call them our hero robots first because they take, I was almost about to reveal something, I'm not going to (laughter), but, we'll spend more screen time with them, I'll say it that way. So, and we have to interact with them, Shia has to interact a lot with them so they're the ones we had to hone first".

Monkeybar TV, the Hasbro extension site for all Hasbro related television shows has decided to have a contest with its "Primus Unleashed" game. In less than 4 days, the top three leading scorers of the game at the end of the time allotted will each receive a free Primus figure!

Be forewarned, however, the competition is tough. I would know, I'm the top spot! So have fun with the game, and good luck to all our fellow Seibertronians in their quest to take 1st place from Triggerhappy Deathblade Devastator (aka Fender Bender).
