Here's a random piece of news for an afternoon (in this part of the world, anyway): Event Magazine UK reports that company Sense has created an interactive Transformers experience, and it is currently touring the UK alongside the Optimus Prime live-action truck from Revenge of the Fallen/Dark of the Moon. Check out more info below!
Visitors will be able to play with the latest toys, including new remote control models, put the latest Transformers apps and video games through their paces, and watch episodes from the hit TV series Transformer: Robots in Disguise.
Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will be there to welcome fans on board a specially designed trailer, which will feature an interactive wall where characters can be ‘powered up’.
There will also be the ultimate photo opportunity with the chance to pose inside a replica of the Optimus Prime truck cab.
The tour has already hit the Sunderland Airshow and rolls out to Carfest North in Cheshire (29-31 July), Cardiff city centre (5-7 August), Bristol Balloon Fiesta (11-14 August), The Bullring in Birmingham (18-21 August) and The Big Festival in Oxfordshire (26-28 August).
It will also visit Kidtropolis at London ExCel from 25-27 October.
Nick Swift, account director at real world marketing agency Sense, which is running the campaign said: "With lifelong Transformers fans in the agency, it was a real delight to get stuck in to creating a touring brand experience for this amazing and evergreen entertainment franchise."
Via a number of social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, for Transformers: The Last Knight, we got a live video (still available now though) of director Michael Bay, and actors Jerrod Carmichael and Mark Wahlberg getting ready to shoot a scene in what looks to be a makeshift hospital or hostel on the Detroit set. Wahlberg in particular seems to have had more than enough, while Bay and Carmichael are still quite filled with energy - check it out embedded below!
Ever wanted to watch Michael B. Bay, Mark Wahlberg and Jerrod Carmichael film a scene? Now you can. We're live from set in downtown Detroit. #transformers
Fellow Seibertronian itscramtastic has shared with us the official Hasbro booklet for Titans Return 'The Power of the Titan Masters' from San Diego Comic Con 2016 - now available digitally - containing a more or less fictional introduction to and the bios of the various characters released in the first couple of waves. It is a little odd to see Sentinel and Optimus work together, and Alpha Trion fighting Mindwipe on Eukaris, Soundwave attacking Cybertron and Fortress Maximus, but there you have it. Check it out mirrored below, or access the PDF here!
Fellow Seibertronian Latyrx7 has shared with us some fairly surprising news at Chinajoy 2016 from Tencent Games, via MMOculture: apparenty, Hasbro has officially licensed an actual MMO for the Transformers, under the name Transformers Online, and we have a demo clip (in Chinese) and the launch trailer. While not much more information has surfaced, it looks as though elements of the Cybertron games and Age of Extinction, and perhaps even Rise of the Dark Spark have made it into this new game. Take a look at the clips, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
Over at ChinaJoy 2016, Tencent Games dropped a bombshell by revealing Transformers Online, which is based on the official IP under Hasbro. The teaser site was first discovered earlier this week, although no one could really point out what game Tencent was teasing. Over at the exhibition halls of ChinaJoy, a business day attendee managed to record a short gameplay demo video, which can be seen below.
Seibertronians, we have another Machinima Designer video, similar to the Victorion-centered one we reported on a few days ago straight from the official Transformers instagram. This time it's on the topic of everyone's favorite (not so) jolly green giant, Devastator! The video, embedded below, confirms Devastator will have a part in the show, and his design seems to be based off of the Combiner Wars iteration. Check it out!
Seibertronians, more video from the Transformers 5 set has been shared over on the official TF5 instagram! This new video shows Mark Wahlberg and what appears to be Bay-verse new-comer, Isabela Moner, riding in Bumblebee on a sound-stage, when something goes wrong with Wahlberg's seat! Take a look!

Via the 'lifestyle' section of Deadline Detroit, we get a look and a report on the current filming activities in the Michigan city - and a direct link to The BananaDoctor, who is currently watching the set from an office, as it happens - as we find out that London is in fact, also in Michigan: it appears some of the set dressing is to recreate the UK's capital for fight, chase, and explosion sequences.
Find below a short clip, some images of the set, and some stunt action from Mark Wahlberg and doubles, too, as we find more of the BayBuster car flipping machine, and a sword shows up in Cade Yaeger's hands..!
