ILMVisualFX has uploaded a new video on Youtube giving a sampling of ILM's visual effects work for Transformers Age of Extinction. Check out some of the work the ILM team puts into various shots in the video embedded below.
Mark Wahlberg is currently doing press junkets for his upcoming film, The Gambler, and he just recently sat down with MTV News to talk about that film (opening Christmas Day) and this year's biggest box office draw, Transformers Age Of Extinction.
You can read the full interview and story over at ComicBookMovie.com, but here's the most important snippet:
While promoting his upcoming release The Gambler, Wahlberg spoke with MTV about the future of the Transformers franchise and seemingly confirmed his involvement in the upcoming sequel as well as possibly another sequel or two: "Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more... you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon."
There you have it, directly from the man himself, a man who doesn't do sequels will now be in next film of one of the largest moneymaking franchises ever. Transformers 5 (still untitled as of now) is expected to see release sometime in 2016, and as soon as we have more info, we'll share it with you.
Seibertron.com sponsor Robotkingdom has posted new images of the Amazon Japan exclusive Camo Hound figure and AoE Blu-ray combo pack. The film is unedited and is the same as the version that can be obtained in 3D/BD/DVD/Digital Copy release here in the states, but the Hound figure is quite possibly the most film accurate figure release yet.
Sporting a new darker camo design, both in terms of paint apps and plastic color, this Hound will be highly coveted by collectors driven by accuracy, but with the set being a limited release of 3000 pieces and a Japan only release, chances are he's going to be rather difficult to obtain, as well as costly. The set's current pricing is $108.00 USD! You can see the Amazon.jp ordering page by clicking here.
If you do happen to get one, please share some images with us so we can all enjoy this rather rare exclusive. Speaking of sharing images, we've mirrored Robotkingdom's pictorial below:

Here's a curve ball for you to start the week: Paramount are campaigning for Transformers: Age of Extinction to be considered for the Academy Awards as Best Picture 2014. Not only that, they're also pushing for Michael Bay and Ehren Kruger to be nominated for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, and a whole other legion of categories for everything related to the movie. To be fair, they are nominating most of their movies for most categories, from Noah, to Interstellar, to Hercules - but what do you think of their selection? Let us know in the Energon Pub!
It has been quite some time since we last saw or heard about the licensed Transformers Age of Extinction/Lost Age Optimus Prime non-transforming statue, produced by FuRyu - but Seibertron is happy to show off a nice look at some in-hand images of the collectable figure, highly detailed, nicely painted and in a chunky box to boot. Check them out below!
Our friend chuckdawg1999 brings us another review this week, and moving away from the simplified lines of Age of Extinction, treats us to a good look at the chromeful Takara Tomy Movie Advanced AD31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime! Check out the review and his thoughts below.
One of the last figures released in Japan for their Age of Extinction line Armor Knight Optimus Prime is fantastic retool/redeco of the Leader Class figure. The new parts, including a new head with face changing gimmick, sport a fantastic metallic paint job that just pops. If you've waited until now to buy an Optimus Prime figure this is the one to get.
