Hugo Weaving is a prolific actor. His roles have run the gamut from sci-fi to drama and everything in between. Whether it was little seen or box office blockbuster, the man has done 'em all.

Multimedia site Collider.com has posted a rather lengthy and in depth interview article with Mr. Weaving, concerning his past, present and future film works. Of importance to us, he speaks about his time as Megatron and unfortunately how unimportant it was to him, as an actor. You can read the full article here. If you want just the tidbit that pertains to us, we've quoted it, in full, here:

As the voice of Megatron, has Michael Bay called about the next Transformers movie yet?

WEAVING: No. That’s a weird job for me because it honestly was a two-hour voice job, initially. I was doing a play and I actually didn’t have time, anyway. It was one of the only things I’ve ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn’t care about it, I didn’t think about it. They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret that bit. I don’t regret doing it, but I very rarely do something if it’s meaningless. It was meaningless to me, honestly. I don’t mean that in any nasty way. I did it. It was a two-hour voice job, while I was doing other things. Of course, it’s a massive film that’s made masses of money. I just happened to be the voice of one of the iconic villainous characters. But, my link to that and to Michael Bay is so minimal. I have never met him. I was never on set. I’ve seen his face on Skype. I know nothing about him, really. I just went in and did it. I never read the script. I just have my lines, and I don’t know what they mean. That sounds absolutely pathetic! I’ve never done anything like that, in my life. It’s hard to say any more about it than that, really.

A fellow fansite (The ALLSpark) has information from one of their posters, SwiftEagle, pertaining to the Japan release of Botshots. Images from the store were included as well. (NOTE: We have mirrored the pictures here for ease of viewing)

Here's what he had to say:

So here's an oddity! A friend in Japan was contacted by *his* friend in Japan with the info that Bot Shots have been released there, but only in one store (that he's seen so far). There are six toys out, each with two different packaging variations. Seems like a test market run to see how they'll do at retail there.


Botshots Released In Japan...As A Test Market Item?

Followed by this:
Additional info!

The line is called BeCool (pun on "vehicle"). Bumblebee is the battle-mask version from the latest Hasbro wave. The price is 714 yen.


Botshots Released In Japan...As A Test Market Item?

As of this news posting (09/19/2012) 714 yen is equivalent to $9.11 USD, making them nearly three times the domestic price. It's currently unknown if this test market will expand, or if these are just a store exclusive. We'll keep you updated.

Update: Transformers Prime fans can breath a sigh of relief, Combs has clarified that there will be a at least a fourth season of Transformers Prime.

We have some interesting news regarding the future of Transformers Prime out of Ep-Con 2012 where voice actors Tony Todd (Dreadwing) and Jeffrey Combs (Ratchet) were in attendance. MiraiBaby of fellow fan site TFW2005 attended a panel where Combs stated the upcoming season three would be the last for Transformers Prime:

Unfortunately this iteration of the franchise is coming to an end


He also stated he had just finished his recordings for the last episode of season three, which is slated for 16 episodes.

While this isn't official confirmation that the recently revealed Transformers Season 3 "Beast Hunters" is the overall end of Transformers Prime it's certainly all very interesting.

CBR just posted an article covering Activision's SDCC 2012 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron panel, which featured voice actors Peter Cullen, Nolan North, and Gregg Berger. During the panel North mentions working with Cullen and Berger on both Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and Transformers Prime. As usual this should be taken with the normal grain of salt until officially confirmed, but IDW did announce a Dinobot tie-in comic for Transformers Prime season three and Grimlock, who Berger is famous for voicing, is a very high profile character at the moment thanks to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Will Berger be joining Transformers Prime? If so, will he voice Grimlock or an all new character?

The full article can be found by clicking here.

Berger spoke about voicing Grimlock, stating in the Dinobot's voice that he was "driven by aggression!" Without any filters to get in the way, Grimlock's strength has a great capacity, even if it's slightly out of his control. Berger thought it was incredible role for an actor to play. He also did a little bit of "Me king!" in Grimlock voice, much to the delight of the crowd, while explaining what a great ally he was to the Autobots team.

North, the iconic voice of Nathan Drake from the "Uncharted" games, explained how much fun it was voicing both Autobot (Cliffjumper) and Decepticon (Bruticus), changing tones for each character. He jokingly poked at Berger in his Bruticus voice, similar to his Grimlock role. He also felt honored to watch Berger and Cullen work, both on this project and the animated "Transformers Prime" series.

Orlando Parkhopper just acquired a bit of poster art that indicates what Universal Orlando’s next big attraction might be and when it may arrive. Transformers: The Ride 3D has posibly been fast-tracked and may now be under construction at Universal Studios Orlando. The innovative, blockbuster attraction is a design wonder that creates an expansive ride experience with a relatively small footprint. With a streamlined construction timeline, Universal could be attempting to get the ride up and running in a year and a half. Is this a hoax? Is this realistic?

Rumors began swirling when the building known as Soundstage 44 was suddenly demolished at the Universal Studios Orlando theme park. So sudden was the demolition that a haunted House for this years Halloween Horror Nights was actually in mid-construction within the space when word came to demolish the building. The building is now completely leveled, and Universal is about to put up construction walls that will reveal the new addition

The week of June 11th, walls suddenly shot up and the building was gone within a months time.

LA Times Hero Complex recently posted an article focusing on Universal Studios Hollywood's new Transformers: The Ride 3D in which director Michael Bay drops a little information about his next Transformers film. According to article Bay says the forth film will be his last before handing the franchise off to a new director. Take that with the normal dose of salt, as we've been hearing that since Transformers: ROTF. The fourth film is also said to feature character redesigns and a completely new cast. Click here to read the full article.

There’s plenty more Transformer action to come with a major new video game release, “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron,” due in August and another Bay movie in the works. (The director, by the way, says that the fourth film will include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast. He also said it will be his last and set the franchise up “for the next guy.”)
