Some further leaks for our regular friends on Weibo bring us some more artwork for the Transformers: The Last Knight packaging - and we get a new look at Hot Rod, plus Bumblebee, and an expanded version of the Megatron vs Optimus Prime we saw here.
Two characters per mock-up may very well indicate two packs, as teased in the Cybertron 2 Pack Deluxe listings seen back here, in combination with the Mission to Cybertron news from earlier today. In any case, take a look below, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!
Our friends over at TFW2005 have been able to find out more information about the glyphs we've been seeing on figures and instructions sheets across the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline, and may have confirmed a retailer exclusive (probably Toys'R'Us again, which is not good news internationally) sub-line for the movie toys: Mission to Cybertron.
The site was able to screencap instructions of a Glyph Decoder, then immediately taken down by Hasbro, then more 'decodable glyphs' appeared on the likes of Skullitron, Nitro and Megatron, and Infernocus and Quintessa. Now, fallen-revenge has found a promotional banner for Mission to Cybertron at a Toys'R'Us store in the US, making the speculation just that little more concrete! Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.
Once again via Weibo, we have a look at what may or may not be packaging art - but art nonetheless - featuring Optimus Prime and Megatron in battle, with the hive pattern behind them as a blue planet takes over the background. We don't want to speculate too much, but we are still waiting to find out more about a certain Cybertron Planet listing we saw a long while back.
TFW2005 user catz has shared an order form which claims that a new item will be similar to AD 31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime from the Takara version of the Age of Etinction Line called Movie Advanced. AD 31 is Takara's retool of the AOE Leader Optimus. We already know hat Hasbro is re-releasing AOE Leader Optimus Prime in the Transformers The Last Knight movie line with a new deco. We can guess that Takara would be doing the same with their toyline but using their retool instead. The price matches up as well since the MSRP shown here is 8,000 yen, around the same MSRP as AD 31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime. Stay tuned!
We've heard a couple of things about the 2018 Bumblebee solo project from Paramount, written by Christina Hodson and directed by Travis Knight, but it seems we finally have confirmation that the movie will indeed be a prequel story of sorts, according to Michael Bay himself. In an interview with MTV, which you can watch below, he states among other things that:
"It'll go a little younger, and it will deal more with his character and it's just about him."
While Bumblebee may not be the sole character in the movie it might be the case that he's the only Cybertronian around. But he may also meet a character we will discover in The Last Knight, if the reports and rumours from the Super Fan footage are to be believed... Let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
CinemaCon is one of the biggest events for the movie industry - or rather, the distribution and theater/cinema showings side of it - and it looks like the 2017 edition might bring some more Paramount live-action Transformers footage with it, later this month. According to RedCarpetRefs, the company might have plans to show some footage, though we do not know if this will differ from the two new spots we just saw (here and here). Check out more info below!
On March 28th, events include a presentation highlighting the 2017 release schedule of STX Entertainment, the studio behind The Gift, Bad Moms and the upcoming The Circle. Later that day, Paramount Pictures will host a panel detailing their summer and beyond, with likely appearances by Baywatch and Transformers: The Last Knight.
Via the official YouTube channel for Transformers - or rather its Transformers Family version - we have a Spanish-captioned teaser clip of an upcoming videogame, with some parallels with The Last Knight's imagery for Optimus Prime's optic change and the words 'The fate of the Transformers is in your hands!'.
This could well just be another TLK related game, but may also have something to do with scannable codes in Tiny Turbo Changers packaging, similar to the mobile app for Robots in Disguise. We will keep you updated as soon as we know more!
Muy pronto vais a ser los PROTAGONISTAS de algo muy grande... ¡El destino de Transformers está en vuestras manos!
Very soon, you will become the PROTAGONISTS of something very big...
The fate of the Transformers is in your hands!
Are you ready for some new Transformers Generations rumours? The last list was from a while back so I think we are overdue. These rumours all come from a post on 4 chan so take all of these with a grain of salt and it will be fun to see what pans out. The reason we are newsing this now is because some rumblings from toyfair seem to back part of it up, especially the mention of smaller figures still being a part of the next line.
These rumours mostly concern the last part of the trilogy, Power of the Primes which is due out in stores January 2018, but there is also mention of Titans Return since there will possibly be transition figures like Buzzsaw in Combiner Wars.
Here is the text found above if you have trouble reading it:
Prime Wars next Gimmick is toys to life. Download an App and scan the card that comes with the figure onto your iphone. Play "stages"(it's unkown what type of game it's going to be) using said character.
Titanmasters will be replaced by equally smaller guys. They won't be headmasters but closer to Micromasters that become target masters or weapon platforms.
Legends will still be able to cart the tiny men around
Prime Wars will still be mostly 88-89 crew. Things like Turbomasters will show up from time to time.
All 5 Dinobots will be made as well as the remaining 3 insecticons will appear. Ransack will show up towards the end of TR as will Barrage. Venom will either be Wave 6 of TR or Wave 1 of PW. He's like Buzzsaw in CW where he may not be able to fit into wave 1.
Scorponok will be Next Titan after Trypticon
TR Arcee is just a repaint of TR Loudmouth
Via weibo user AlucardLee, a regular for this sort of news piece, we have what might the render for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight MPM Masterpiece Optimus Prime, which we've mirrored below for your viewing convenience! A reminder: the Movie Masterpiece figures are new molds meant to replicate the 'best' incarnation of the live action movieverse, and there are three expected with the new film: Optimus, Bumblebee (seen already) and the rumoured Barricade. Check out the image below, and squint with us in the Energon Pub!
Here's a piece of speculation for you all. As you might have noticed, Hasbro had a big presence at the New York Toy Fair this weekend, and brought several reveals for this year's lines of toys, from The Last Knight to Robots in Disguise to Titans Return (all of our coverage can be found here and the related galleries here!) - now, they have tweeted a general thank you message to close off the event, reminding fans that their next stop is Providence, Rhode Island in September 2017, for HASCON.
The odd part? San Diego Comic Con, a staple of the entertainment media industries, is taking place in July. Is the message just a slip of the fingers, or is Hasbro actually not going to be taking part at SDCC? We have no further information at the moment, and this post is merely rumouring and overthinking, but what you do make of the possibility? Do you think we're reading this correctly?
