    Frank Welker has answered more questions about the upcoming Transformers Movie on his website. Most of the questions are about the character Megatron. Welker revealed some interesting information. The first of which is he has not been offered any roles but voice casting for the movie is not done yet. The second is that he is still in the running to play Megatron in the Transformers Movie. Here are the questions with Welker's answers:

    "Regarding Transformers the Movie 2 (2007), everyone says you're in it, even IMDb Pro: Transformers: Main Details ยป Frank Welker ... Megatron (voice). I'm so confused, are you or aren't you in it? I've also attached a few fan letters for you to answer when you have some free time. You're the best! Thanks!

    Doreen (2/1/2007 4:36:37 PM PST)

    Hey Dor ... As you can see by my responses [below], everything you've read at this point has been rumor and misinformation. As of this moment, to my knowledge, they have not cast Megatron and I am still very much in the running.

    Frank (2/20/2007 7:51:59 AM PST)


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello, Mr. Welker!

    You have done a great job voicing Megatron in the G1 Transformers series. I know that Peter Cullen is going to voice Optimus Prime in the new live-action movie. Are you going to participate in it? [snip] I would like to contact Peter Cullen. Do you know how?

    Sincerely,
    Omeed Mirhakkak

    Dear Omeed,

    Thanks, I really enjoyed doing that voice and playing a villain for a change. I know I have been asked a lot about the movie, but at the present time I have not been offered any roles. That doesn't mean it's final, they are still doing voice casting. Peter Cullen is a hard man to track down, you might try some of the "Transformer" sites and see if you can get a message to him.

    Frank"

    Our own Grifter Prime has brought us some interesting news about an event that involved General Motors and Transformers. General Motors introduced upcoming Transformers Movie stars Bumblebee, Autobot Jazz, Autobot Ratchet, and Ironhide at its sixth annual "ten" pre-Oscar fashion event at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood. Here is a press release from the event:

    :
    From a press release

    Live-Action Movie's 'Heroes' Attend 6th Annual GM Ten Event; DreamWorks/Paramount Film Slated to Debut July 4

    LOS ANGELES – Four new movie stars – "Bumblebee," "Autobot Jazz," "Autobot Ratchet" and "Ironhide" – from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures', in association with Hasbro's, forthcoming July 4th action-adventure release, "Transformers," were introduced this evening by General Motors Corp. (NYSE: GM) as it hosted its sixth annual "ten" pre-Oscar fashion event at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood.

    "Bumblebee" changes from the classic Chevrolet Camaro, and is a central character in the saga of aliens who take mechanical forms when on Earth "Autobot Jazz" converts from a Pontiac Solstice in a hardtop format. A Hummer H2, modified as a rescue vehicle, changes into "Autobot Ratchet" and "Ironhide" changes from a GMC TopKick medium-duty truck. They all star in this summer's live-action blockbuster, "Transformers," from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, which will premiere July 4.

    Buzz about the roles that these vehicles play in the movie has been spreading since a quick glimpse of the new Camaro was spotted in Paramount's newest "Transformers" trailer, which began appearing in theaters on Dec. 20, 2006. This clip, which is currently the most-viewed movie trailer on Yahoo!, also contains images of the Solstice, H2 and TopKick for fans who were quick enough to have freeze-framed it.

    "'Transformers' is a compelling project and offers us a global platform for marketing GM products and building our brands," said Mike Jackson, GM North America vice president, marketing and advertising. "It represents the perfect intersection of entertainment, marketing and design."

    "The first time I saw the new Camaro, while touring the GM Design Center, I knew immediately that it would be the perfect 'Bumblebee,'" said Michael Bay, the film's Director. He continued, "It's got beautiful lines and a classic, timeless look. There were no other cars that came even close. I have had a great working relationship with GM for many years and am psyched to be working with them on 'Transformers.'"

    Gerry Rich, President of Worldwide Marketing at Paramount Pictures, added, "We are thrilled to be working with GM on this incredible and action-packed film. Having integrated the cars as characters in the film is truly an innovative concept that will help eventize this exciting 4th of July tentpole film."

    GM will roll out a fully integrated marketing and promotional effort around the film in the near future, including a major Chevrolet promotion, according to Jackson.

    Seibertron.com Presents Shopping for Transformers in DenDen (Electric City) Japan.

    Seibertron.com is always trying to bring its viewers new information on the Transformers genre through various different site articles. In the past we have touched on the story of Sunstorm to the comparison of Transformers with Gobots. But this time our very own Stormrider has been working on a way to bring us a interesting glimpse into a different cultural side of Transformers that many of us are not aware of. He has been working on a article for Seibertron over the past 3 weeks that involves shopping in Osaka Japan for Transformers. The place in which this article is written about is DenDen which is also known as "Electric City".



    Tranformer Guide
    DenDen (Electric City)


    -Stormrider, 2007

    Where to find Transformers in Japan?
    A common misconception about Japan is that the streets are lined with toy stores selling every kind of Transformer imaginable. Their doors brim over with hundreds of new and vintage Transformers, beckoning Transfans to feast their eyes on long lost and truly hard to find figures.

    Sadly, these “golden” streets do not exist, but there is one place that comes very close DenDen (Osaka, Japan). I made a recent trip to DenDen and I was impressed with the number of hobby shops carrying Transformers. In fact, the quantity and diversity of Transformers blew me away (even more so than Akihabara). It took me two days to visit all the hobby shops in the area to determine, which ones were the best. I’ve compiled a map to make your transformer hunting there as easy as possible.

    Background
    Very few foreigners know about DenDen. Most Transfans usually head straight for Tokyo in search of a couple Transformers they’ve been dying to get. However, if you are going through Osaka, it is well worth it to make a stop in DenDen.

    DenDen, which is also known as “Electric City”, began the same way as Akihabara; both places started off selling surplus army goods after WWII and quickly became “Mecca’s” for cheap electronic goods and appliances. Where they differ is that Akihabara has developed into a computer district with hobby shops as a side component; DenDen on the other hand is splitting its attention equally between hobby shops and electronic goods. In addition, the word on the street is that DenDen will see even more hobby shop growth in the near future.

    Hobby Shop Types
    Hobby shops tend to specialize in particular goods such as: Action figures, Dolls, RC Cars, Trains, Collectables, Cards, Mangas, Vintage Video Games, Robot figures, and Models. Knowing the hobby shop type really helps.

    Navigation
    Osaka is the third largest city, and usually people stop through for a day or two when they visit Japan. The city is divided into two parts (Kita – which means north) and (Minami – which means south). (Shinkansen passengers arrive in the Kita district, but a short subway ride will bring you to Minami).
    • DenDen is near Namba Station, which is in Minami.
    • Most of the hobby shops are concentrated on the Sakai Suji Dori (Ave), which is about a 15 minute walk from Namba Station.

    I have grouped the hobby shops into three categories:

    (TF) - These hobby shops carry the most recent Transformers.
    (TF) - These hobby shops carry vintage Transformers. The figures range from MISB, MIB, to Loose.
    (TF) - These hobby shops showcase clear Plexiglas containers, called “capsules” or “treasure boxes”. Renters then fill the containers with collectable toys that they wish to sell. You never know what you will come across (it’s hit or miss). Keep your fingers crossed for ultra rare figures.

    *Map to be added soon after a few bugs are worked out*


    Best Stores
    There are many places to visit in DenDen, but some stand far above others when it comes to TF. (Unfortunately, I was not permitted to take photos inside the stores, so I will describe them).

    Herogangu.com - This store has two floors devoted to new and vintage transformers. The vintage Transformers are MISB, MIB, and loose. It is the largest TF store, I have ever seen. (See photo of outside of store). They had the following:
    • Complete collection of TFC (MISB)
    • A plethora of MISB reissues including – Megatron Special Black Edition (S-16)
    • Dozens of eHobby Exclusives
    • A huge selection of G1’s: “Goodbye Megatron”, “Goodbye Optimus Prime”, Soundwave w/ headphones; Reflector (MIB)
    • Giftsets - Aerialbots Giftset; Combaticons Giftset; Stunticon Giftset; Technobots Giftset;
    • Several locked cases with their rarest TF, Diaclones, and lucky draws.
    • Transformer merchandise – Shirts, clocks, videos, etc.


    Mandarake – This chain store started off selling Mangas, but it has quickly become a vintage toy store favorite. The TF range from MISB, MIB, Loose. (See photo for the outside of the store).
    • Great place for BT, TFC, BW, Galaxy, RID
    • They also have several locked cases for rare TFs, Diaclones, and other goodies.
    • Many hard to find G1’s in MIB
    • Giftsets: Predaking Giftset; Protectobots Giftset; Raiden Giftset; Seacon Giftset; Terrcons Giftset
    • There is another Mandarake in Kita district. It’s TF selection is not as large. (Email me if you need directions.)

    So if you are planning to come to Japan, make sure to include a stop in Osaka for some great Transformer shopping. *Please note that Japanese stores can change locations suddenly (usually they move down the street).
