This past weekend, many of the major movie websites were out in L.A. on the set of the Transformers movie. I'm writing this news article blind because I still don't have access to the site since it hasn't resolved yet with SBC/AT&T on the new server. I have access to my design site still and access to the live database. Please bear with me if it's not formatted correctly.

LatinoReview stated that the scene of the movie that they saw filmed this weekend was "... part of the conclusion of the film when all threads of the story converge onto the city streets of downtown Los Angeles. Shia, Megan, Josh and Tyrese share this scene and without giving anything away will have the audience at the edge of their seat." stated that "The scene being filmed was one near the end of the movie as the battle between Autobots and Decepticons rages in the streets of Los Angeles. The specific shots we saw were of mayhem and terror - extras running through smoke, the military folk reacting to the carnage, and the Autobots - in vehicle form - ostensibly getting in position for combat.

Michael Bay informed about how a few of our favorite Transformers measure up:
Jazz : 13 feet tall
Bumblebee: 17 feet tall
Ratchet: 24 feet tall
Iron Hide: 26 feet tall
Optimus Prime: 28 feet tall
Megatron: 34 feet tall

Jazz is indeed the Pontiac Solstice, which is no surprise since Chevrolet (Camaro - Bumblebee), GMC (GMC 4x4 Truck - Ironhide) and Hummer (H2/H3? - Ratchet) are already represented in the predominantly General Motors lineup per their agreement with Dreamworks.

According to, the producers stated that Hasbro had the final say on all character designs. That should hopefully be some good news for fans who were disappointed with the leaked images of the various Transformers. None of the producers seemed to be concerned about the negative fan reaction. One Producer summed up his feelings like this: "It's like a child who throws a tantrum because he thinks he's getting something he won't like on Christmas ... but I'm the parent who knows that when they open that box they're going to be blown away". Or like the Christmas where my Dad got me knock off He-Man toys instead of the real thing because he thought they looked the same.

We've been a little hard on Don Murphy. Sometimes he deserves it ... but he is one of the original people who shopped the idea of a Transformers movie back around 2002. Love him or hate him, we wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for Mr. Murphy.

Josh Duhamel: "Make no mistake, this is the Robot's movie... not ours".
Michael Bay stated Transformers will be "pretty edgy for a family film" and will be PG-13.

Producers talked about "story structure, Transformers designs, key elements from the series that must be preserved, and whether there are already sequel plans."

Don Murphy stated that they are definitely looking into getting Frank Welker to voice Megatron.

Furbys will be sacrificed in this movie.

Full trailer to hit theatres this upcoming holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Film is seeking permission to be 1st movie to film the exterior of the Pentagon since 9/11. The movie will also shoot in various cities, including L.A., Chicago, Detroit and Washington." (though this is the first we've heard of these other cities) "The film will feature a top-secret military unit called Sector 7." Spike's Grandfather plays a key part in the beginning of the story.

A lot of stuff is going to stop working here very shortly because the site is going to be switching servers. Once it does that, I'll be on the defense fixing whatever's not working. HMW WILL NOT initially work on the new server ... the forums will and the news section will. I will work on getting things up and running as fast as possible once the site resolves on the new server.

UPDATE (8/28/2006): I am still in the process of moving files. I am aware that HMW and many other sections on the site are not working. I am working as fast as possible to copy files over from the old site to the new site. I apologize for the inconvenience.

After months of only hearing from the movie people (with the exception of Hasbro's COO Brian Goldner), I've got just one question ...


Hasbro ... Where Are You?

By "Hasbro", I'm referring to the people that come to the conventions every year such as Aaron Archer and Michelle Field (does she still work with the Transformers brand?). Where are the people that understand what the Transformers fans want the most? Where are the people who we've been hearing from since the early days of Botcon?

Hasbro, where are you?


You'll never believe who Mystery, Inc. discovers is under the monster's costume when they take off his mask. We were just as surprised as you!

Earlier today we reported here some statements made by Brian Goldner. Goldner has posted yet another statement on Don Murphy Boards. Here is what he posted:

"How do I say this--You guys say you want to see robots NOW, and then, when you see early work-in-progress, you flip out!!!

Let me try to frame where we are headed with TRANSFORMERS, and draw some loved G1 the first time you saw it ( and every time since), and so did we...It told a NEW story of sentient beings that have human-like characters, and yet, there is so much more to them than what's on the surface...they transform from recognizable objects to unimaginable robots. They have their own history, and rivalries that we witness, and get swept up in... We all owe it to the next generations of folks to use the technology, storytelling, and access (to real contemporary vehicles/military) that TRANSFORMERS provides to drive this forward...your input in very important as it helps to shape the delivery of TRANFORMERS as a LIVE-ACTION movie. We will show you robots, when they are right....they will be PHOTO-REALISTIC. In fact, this movie could have never been produced much before today....this is worth the effort.

We need to tell an origin story because not everyone is as versed as you in the history....we need to explain elements of the TRANSFORMERS that can be glossed over in animation...there are logic gaps that do need to make sense when a broad global audience buys a ticket and wants to enjoy the show as much as you will...we continue to make progress.

Starcream is a complex character. He is loyal, and yet ready to mutiny all at the same time. He is two-faced and duplicitious...his character will be played out in his he evolves he is looking very cool....

Megatron too is a very important link from past (G1) to present...there are major story elements that will come to light as you watch the film that make his evolving design ring true...of course, he has always had big guns...just wait to see what we have done here....again, LIVE-ACTION....

The comments and jokes about leaving the boards are unjustified...there has never been a group of producers, writiers, and studio executives more engaged in this project, and for that reason not always attached to these boards."
