Gamespot has just posted a lenghty interview with Daniel Suarez, executive producer of Activision, creators of the Transformers Movie Videogame

The video interview shows tons of new game footage (in-game and cutscenes) and gives us a good look at some new apsects of the game we have not seen yet, including clips of Optimus Prime fighting a giant Shockwave and a quick glimpse of Bonecrusher and Starscream causing general mayhem (Note: Bonecrusher was not originally among the list of playable characters for the game, could this hint to him being an unlockable character?)

Seibertron's own Burn gives a first hand breakdown and report about the special screening that happened in Australia...



"So it's now just a bit before 10:30pm Australian time and I just got back to the hotel after seeing the movie.

So, where to begin? Well for starters, we're not allowed to talk about the movie until the 28th.

What we are allowed to talk about is the event it's self...


The red carpet was actually a "camo" carpet and the announcer made the comment "we've transformed this place into a junkyard, to make the Autobots feel at home" which gave me a bit of a chuckle.

What did get annoying though was him constantly referring to Autobots as "Autobarns", someone obviously corrected him though.

He kept handing out free tickets until the celebrities turned up, they also had music blasting away, and Lion's Transformers theme was one of them. It was the only TF related music they played.

They were also hyping the fact they had a Hummer there done up with the Transformers logo, nothing spiffy about that really but apparently we were suppose to be in awe.

A bunch of celebrities attended (Mulla can provide a full list after he swangled a Media pass and scored a media press kit), Megan Fox was the first to arrive and she did over the camo carpet. Michael Bay eventually turned up which is when things got a little crazy as we were told we could begin entering the theatre, except we had no idea where.

It was all quite a bit disorganized at that point but we eventually found our way in. There were two cinemas in use with Bay and the Rachel chick in one and Megan Fox in the other.

Bay got up and gave a speech at the beginning and stated that he had only finished the movie 19 hours ago (complete with one big error), then the movie got started and we were treated to one hell of a fantastic movie.

There's good points and bad points but quite frankly the good definitely outweighs the bad. I'll post more and some pics (provided they turn out) when I got home in a couple of days.

But I'll say this. GO AND SEE THIS **** MOVIE!"


Sounds like we will have more to report and hopefully some pictures to share from other Australian members when they start reporting in and sharing how things went. Thanks Burn!

Seibertron member Starscream has brought to our attention an interesting eBay auction for a variant of the 'Legends' class Ratchet figure from this summer's Transformers Movie.

The original Ratchet figure was painted in a bright, neon green while the one in this auction is a more subdued tone of greenish-yellow, more accurate to colours of the actual vehicle used in the film.

Toy manufacturers are betting on a good year for sales with summer movies to help promote their toys. With so many action packed movies like Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Fantastic Four, and Transformers- what will be the most popular toy?

Sheliah Gilliland of Internet toy retailer EToys.com is betting on Transformers.

"Transformers will be the biggest seller — it's a movie based on a line of toys that has been popular since the '80s," she said. "They have always been strong sellers but, because of the movie, they are coming back in a huge way."

With so many sequels, toy manufacturers — as well as the studios — must up the ante to outdo the previous offering.

Transformers are considered the ultimate boy toys that could also be a hit with dads who played with them when they were young.

Hasbro has come out with an updated line, including the Optimist Prime truck that transforms into a blaster with one pull of a handle. The company will release a new video game in time for Father's Day.

In this summer's toy war, Hasbro, may have the most to lose.

Hasbro holds the master toy license to three Marvel comic-book movies being released this summer, "Spider-Man 3," "Transformers" and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer." That means the manufacturer will essentially be competing against itself in the toy aisle.

But having toy lines for three summer blockbusters may not be a walk in the park for Hasbro.

Lots of movies do not translate to strong toy sales, said Gerrick L. Johnson, an analyst with BMO Capital Markets Corp.

"We think this [Marvel licensing] deal will be a profitable one for Hasbro; we also think it is expensive and risky," he wrote in a recent report.

The company needs $1 billion in Marvel-related sales over the next five years to make a profit on the licenses, he said. "That is a lot of toys and our concern is that interest in super-hero-related movies and toys will begin to wane."

Hasbro is confident it will gain from its Transformers brand and has signed deals with 230 licensees worldwide for T-shirts, bedding, cellphones and shoes.

"It's much more about total enterprise for us," said Brian Goldner, chief executive of Hasbro. "We know we have created a great array of products for kids and collectors."

Three months ago, we saw a rumor that the Transformers Movie would hold it’s premiere in South Korea on June 28th. At the time, Nelson from Shoot for the Edit, indicated that this might only be a rumor. Now, it’s looking as if the initial reporting is true!

According to The Korea Times,

The director and star of the anticipated blockbuster ``Transformers'' will hold a press junket in N Seoul Tower tonight, before its world premier across Korean theaters on June 28.

It is the first time a Hollywood film is having its opening event in Korea.

Iconic director Michael Bay (``Armageddon,'' ``The Rock'') and up-and-coming actress Megan Fox, the heroine of the film, will be talking to journalists and fans alongside the actual model of the film's ``character'' Autobot Bumblebee, towering 5.2 meters and weighing 3.7 tons.

As mentioned before, the actors of the Transformers Movie for this summer have signed on 3 movies. But it apparently doesn't end at 3 movies if it's up to Michael Bay...

According to GrendelKahn from Clantsu.org, Michael Bay told the press at the Koren Press Conference for the World Premier Pictures, that if Transformers 1, 2 and 3 are a succes, they would do a fourth and fifth movie as well!

Note that this is a fairly new source and therefor we have listed this as a rumor for now.
