Getting into more techie territory, the IMAX YouTube channel has uploaded a brief featurette on their new 3D camera, used in the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction - and we see some footage minus robots, but plenty of explosions. Check out the embedded clip below!
Introducing the new IMAX® 3D Digital Camera! Go behind the scenes with IMAX's camera team in this new featurette to see how IMAX is revolutionizing 3D capture and also get a first look at the camera that will be featured in Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction.
According to a recent piece on Yahoo! News Singapore, one of the biggest Chinese stars appearing in Transformers: Age of Extinction, Li Bingbing, did encounter some difficulties working with the mostly Anglophone cast and crew on set. We don't have that much to report, but you can read the article here, and relevant sections below.
"I am not a native speaker, but I had to perform as if I am fluent in the language," said Li. "I had to really memorise my dialogue well."
However, the tendency for the production to change the script made the experience more difficult and challenging for the actress.
In addition, Li also revealed that she had to make several changes in terms of her character's name and overall appearance.
"I portray a CEO in the film and they gave the character's name, Liao Xiumei. It's not that the name is not good. It's just that it sounded weird. So I changed it to Su Yueming instead," said the actress.
Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com member #Sideways#, we can report that the new videogame Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is now available for pre-order on Steam - and it includes a special Weathered Warrior Pack to start you off! Check out more info here and below.
The Weathered Warrior Pack includes: 2 characters (Thundercracker and Skywarp) and 2 weapons (Glass Gas Cannon and Electro Bolter).
Thundercracker is a Decepticon Seeker: a master of flight and aerial combat. He defected to the Decepticons with Starscream and Skywarp and now serves Megatron.
Skywarp has never been interested in power or conquest, only the pursuit of knowledge. He joined the Decepticons to produce powerful weapons and experimental systems for use in combat.
The Glass Gas Cannon is a powerful weapon feared amongst all robots, this weapon creates a distortion field in mid-air, suspending opponents in mid-air and rendering them helpless before sending them smashing into the ground at high velocity.
The Electro Bolter is a weapon for the true sharpshooter at Spark, the Electro Bolter launches deadly harpoon-style projectiles. The kinetic energy of these projectiles knocks enemies back on impact and can even pin them to walls.

Making the news on quite a number of entertainment websites around, we can report that the current CEO and president of the extremely successful and award-winning Hasbro and Discovery Communications TV channel, has announced her departure from the company. Read more on the future of the home of Transformers: Prime and re-runs of old 80s series (and possibly the coming Robots in Disguise show) below, or head to Deadline for the full story.
The veteran executive oversaw the 2010 launch of the kids cable network, a joint venture between Discovery Communications and toymaker Hasbro, and has run it ever since.
“After five years at the Hub Network as its founding President & CEO, I am announcing that I will be leaving at the end of the year when my contract expires,” Loesch said in a statement to Deadline. “I am very proud of the work we have done and the accomplishments we have achieved at the Hub. The network is now in excellent financial shape, its ratings are up year-to-year, our programming has won more than 30 awards, including 12 Daytime Emmys, and the Hub Network has become a TV home for quality programming that kids and their families come together to enjoy. I will be working closely with our parent companies, Discovery and Hasbro, to assist in the leadership transition. I want to thank both companies for the opportunity they extended me and thank my wonderful team at the Hub. I have loved my job and am proud of the achievements we’ve made. While my career has spanned over four decades, I look forward to evaluating future opportunities and writing the next chapter.”
