As we first reported in early September, SPIKE TV is airing its 4th Annual "Scream" awards on Tuesday, October 27th at 10PM PST/EST. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as you might suspect drew heavy consideration when nominations were decided and was actually nominated in 11 different categories.

Can't wait to know how many it won? Well, you don't have to.

The actual awards show was taped last night, and ROTF did very well, earning 3 awards. Megan Fox won for "best sci-fi actress", Isabel Lucas won for "breakout performance - female" and the movie itself was deemed to have the best special effects.

Of course, with ROTF hitting shelves everywhere in a mere matter or hours, fellow Seibertron.com News Crew member Blurrz had compiled a comprehensive list of the various DVD and Blu-Ray special editions that the various retailers are releasing, You may check that out by clicking here.

Back in August, we reported that Stephen Davis had been appointed the new President of Hasbro Studios, which will create programming for the new Hasbro-Discovery joint venture network.

Today, thanks to Yahoo Finance's business wire we have news that two more senior executives have also been hired by Hasbro Studios.

Linda Steiner, a veteran of Warner Bros., Cartoon Network and ABC Entertainment, has been named head of girls and preschool programming. Lisa Licht, who has served for two years as general manager of entertainment and licensing at Hasbro, has been promoted to general manager, Hasbro Studios.

Steiner joins Hasbro Studios from Warner Bros. Animation where she was senior vice president of creative affairs. While at Warner’s, Linda was responsible for overseeing development and production of some of the most high profile and highly rated animation programming on television including, The Batman, for which she won an Emmy Award, Legion of Super Heroes and Teen Titans. Steiner joined Warner Bros. in 1998 as vice president, development. Previously she held senior positions at ABC Entertainment in the network’s Children’s Entertainment division.

Prior to joining Hasbro, Lisa Licht held several senior-level posts at Twentieth Century Fox including executive vice president, global marketing, and senior vice president, feature film promotions and field operations. She was senior vice president of marketing at Mattel where she managed the worldwide BARBIE brand. Licht has spent the past two years growing Hasbro’s licensing business and helped play an integral role in developing the company’s TV strategy. Recently, she has been a member of the executive team responsible for the integration efforts for the Hasbro-Discovery Joint Venture. Moving to the studio, Licht will have broad responsibilities within the Studio which will include working along side Davis on strategy, operations, and coordinating the activities between the Studio and the new television network created by the joint venture between Hasbro and Discovery Communications (NASDAQ: DISCA - News, DISCB - News, DISCK - News), that is planned to debut Fall 2010.

Stephen Davis commented, “Lisa and Linda represent very significant additions to the executive team at Hasbro Studios. Both have held key positions at some of the most successful companies in the children’s entertainment arena and are well respected for their leadership and accomplishments. They will make substantial contributions as we shape the iconic Hasbro brands along with other emerging and existing properties into new forms of visual entertainment.”

Hasbro Studios’ productions will feed all platforms, domestically and globally, including television, the Internet and mobile. New programming is planned based on brands such as ROMPER ROOM, TRIVIAL PURSUIT, SCRABBLE, CRANIUM, MY LITTLE PONY, G.I. JOE, GAME OF LIFE, TONKA and TRANSFORMERS, among many others.

In addition, the “virtual” studio will produce programs from top third party content creators. Many of these shows will run on the new Hasbro/Discovery JV television network as well as on multiple channels in international markets.

Fellow TF fansite TFormers has managed to get an exclusive round table discussion with the minds and faces behind Transformers Revenge of The Fallen.

In the discussion they talk about voice-acting and the contents of the upcoming home video releases of the movie, like a game that lets you create your own Transformer. The group also claims that among the DVD contents will be an 'easter egg' in the form of a video featuring director Michael Bay. This video claims to be a bit of a spoiler for the next installment of the Transformers movie franchise, a very large rumor generator, if you will.

If you want to know the next rumor for Transformers 3 (the first was that Megan Fox's character Mikaela would be killed off in the third movie) then scroll the the very bottom of this article.

You can read the entire article by clicking here.




SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!************************












Rumor:

The Michael Bay video claims that none other than the planet devouring giant, Unicron will play a role in Transformers 3!


As this is an unconfirmed rumor we advise you to take it with a grain of salt.

We recently reported that the soundtrack to the 1986 animated Transformers movie was named one of the Top 10 Sci-Fi soundtracks of all-time by Totalscifionline.com

The highlight of that album for many has always been the iconic rock anthem "The Touch" by Stan Bush. Totalscifionline.com recently took some time to interview Stan about not only making the list, but many other topics as well.

Here is an excerpt.

Were you commissioned to write 'The Touch' for Transformers the Movie, or did the song exist before then?


We actually wrote ‘The Touch’ for the Stallone move Cobra, but the record label ended up getting the song in Transformers: The Movie. I remember initially thinking it was just some cartoon movie, but little did I know it would become such a phenomenon.

What did you make of the movie and the use of your song in it?

It was very cool. I attended the screening and met some of the people who worked on the movie. It was great how they featured 'The Touch' in the crucial moments in the film.

Did you get to meet any of the cast, such as Orson Welles?

I met Weird Al Yankovic [who also featured on the soundtrack]. He was on the same record label, and we met at an industry party. I also met Greg Berger [Grimlock] and Peter Cullen [Optimus Prime].
