It's been doing the round for weeks now, some say its a CGI test of the Movie, others just a fan made clip, but whatever it is it's damn good!

This CGI footage of a real life semi-cab springing to life and transforming into a modern day take on G1 Optimus Prime has had everyone talking both amongst the fandom and the internet as a whole.

If you haven't seen it yet head over to popular movie website and take a look at the Video Clip as well as more information and stills from the clip.

We must stress there has been no official word this has anything to do with the forthcoming Dreamworks Movie However we've had so many e-mails concerning it we just had to post it.

Imagine, if the fan stuff is this good just think how awesome the official Movie CGI is going to be!

On my visit to my Local Toys R Us to track down an Anniversary Prime (No luck on that front so far).
I had a chat with the store Manager. He told me that they were enlarging the Transformers Display area from the usual single 4feet to a double 8feet to make room for a larger variaty to the Transformers line.
Now with distant Rumors that the beast Wars Anniversary figures may be coming to the UK. This could be the start of a less Disgruntled Britain.

Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chief Operating Officer, spoken out about the movie on Don Murphy's Message Board. He has made several post concerning the fans and the upcoming movie. Goldner says he will continue to try to answer questions as best as he can. Here are a few of his more important posts so far:

"I am reading all of this...the entire team has been reading along with your discussions since the start. We are listening. The movie is a work in progress, at this point. I will try to answer your questions, or will get the questions to members of the team to give you a proper answer...we are all as passionate as you...this I"

The script is still being developed. The writers, producers, and Michael Bay want to ensure that the characters, Decepticons, and Autobots have great, developed personalities that bring the story to life. Again, the characters lines are still being written...for both Autobots and Decepticons.

I will try to dial in with you regularly....I have been reading all along, but felt it might be helpful to answer some questions, and certainly try to settle some rumors (so I signed up). This forum format is new to me, but this project is very important to us all, because we love this brand....this movie is going to be great. It's a great story...

Let me try to cover some important points (some of your other thoughts throw me off the trail, at times)... The team is going to audition original voice talent whereever possible....remember, several people played multiple characters in the animated movie. The characters are still being developed for Autobots, and Decepticons...the writers are very focused on creating great personalities across the board...based on the rich Transformers mythology...this is an origin story. It needs to start at the beginning. Also, you cannot underestimate the impact that LIVE ACTION will have on making our cast of TRANSFORMERS come to life in a way you have never experienced.....

I need to sign off for now. I am speaking to Don and Tom tonight.

We are all working as a team to make a great Transformers Movie...everyone on this project has this as a common goal...everyone.

To read all of the original post go to Don Murphy's Message Board.
