Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB, we have an image that suggests an odd pair of previously unknown upcoming releases. The first, and the main focus of the image, is a seemingly brand new deco of the '07 movie's leader class Optimus Prime mold. This could be a special release to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first film.

However, the Prime is perched on a box...a box that appears to be a three-pack of Bumblebees! While the image isn't clear, what we can see is the '07 movie's deluxe '76 Camaro Bumblebee, as well as the wave 3 Bumblebee from The Last Knight. The third could be Age of Extinction's High Octane Bumblebee, as the logo for Age of Extinction can be partly seen.

While the specifics for these releases are currently unknown, SDCC is coming up, so we may find out soon! In the meantime, check out the leaked image below and speculate to your heart's content in the Energon Pub!

After the previous confirmation of the movie being set in the 1980s, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura also teased Bumblebee's possible incarnation in the movie as the traditional G1 Volkswagen Beetle model - though obviously take it with as much salt as you can grab.

“You might even see a VW Bug,” Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura tells EW. “You never know.”


The producer also talked more about the story of the movie, and why now is the best time to work within the Paramount/Hasbro shared universe, name-dropping a couple of other toy franchises as he went.

“The interesting thing about doing a spin-off is it has to have some familiarity with the franchise, and then it has to have its own distinct qualities for it to stand on its own,” di Bonaventura says. After that, Paramount is trying to see if Transformers — and a few other Hasbro toy properties, like M.A.S.K. — can become part of an expanded universe.

Obviously, the Bumblebee film serves as a kind of prequel to the Bay movies.

“It’s the story of a 17-, 18-year-old girl who, through a series of events, she and Bumblebee find each other, and they make each other whole,” di Bonaventura said. “Bumblebee’s a very loving character. He’s got a lot of heart, so of course the idyllic life of these two is interrupted by the evil Decepticons. And how are they going to be able to deal with the problem without Optimus and without everybody else?”

With Transformers: The Last Knight reaching cinemas worldwide (mostly, does not apply in Japan and other regions) this weekend, we delve into the other movie in the Paramount Universe: Bumblebee! Courtesy of Screenrant and producer Lorenzo diBonaventura, we know that the movie starring Hailee Steinfeld will start shooting this August - with plans for a sixth movie in the linear series to *maybe* happen in 2019.

Transformers News: Transformers: Bumblebee 2018 Starts Shooting in August, Maybe Sixth Film in 2019

In our exclusive interview with Transformers: The Last Knight producer Di Bonaventura, the premiere blockbuster filmmaker told us that filming on Bumblebee will begin this August, followed by an expected theatrical release later next summer. Exclusive:

“Well we’re going to shoot a prequel actually, a Bumblebee movie, which starts in August, so next summer we’ll see a Bumblebee movie. And then we hope to have another Transformers movie the following summer.“

[...]

“Look, I always wait for the audience, because there’s an arrogance to getting ahead of your audience. When you do, you get punched. So we’ll wait each time. We’re planning a lot of movies, but you’ve got to have the audience’s support, because these movies are very expensive.“


There is a possibility that the studio is waiting for more information on box office performance for The Last Knight, not off to a great start as of yet. Read the whole piece here!

Via ComicBook.com we have an interview with Transformers: The Last Knight cast member Mark Wahlberg, who returns from Age of Extinction as Cade Yaeger, discussing the role that director Michael Bay has created for himself within the franchise - and he does not expect him to leave as he has said a number of times already.

The point he makes though, is probably also tied to the amounts of money made at the box office for Paramount, which may not be the case with this fifth movie, as reported here. Check the relevant point below, and the whole piece here!

While he might be a bit fried at the moment, Wahlberg thinks after some time has passed, Bay won't be so willing to let go.

"So he'll decide that and I would be hard pressed to see him walk away and put it in somebody else's control and care. I mean, that's just the Michael that I know, but you never know, sometimes people decide to move on, so we'll see what happens."

The franchise has been heavily criticized at times, but still manages to bring in signifgant box office receipts. How The Last Knight fares at the box office will likely have some impact on Bay's ultimate decision.

Fellow Seibertronian SnoopDawg has sent us a notification of a new piece up on The Hollywood Reporter - which may be entirely unfounded, so grab your salt packs - about next year's Bumblebee spinoff movie from the Paramount Transformers cinematic universe. Apparently, 20 year old True Grit cast member Hailee Steinfeld is in talks for the movie, as a 'tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school'. Check out the full piece here, and an extract below!

Hailee Steinfeld is in negotiations to star in Paramount's Transformers spinoff Bumblebee.

Travis Knight, who directed the stop-motion movie Kubo and the Two Strings, is helming the project.

Bumblebee is the yellow and black striped Autobot that appears as one of the main characters in the Transformers film series.

Plot details are being kept on the dark side of the moon but it is known that Steinfeld will play a tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school. Christina Hodson (Shut In) wrote the script.

The movie project is the first spinoff in what the studio hopes will be a Transformers Cinematic Universe that will include prequels and offshoots from a line of movies that have generated over $3.7 billion worldwide with the latest one, Transformers: The Last Knight, set to hit theaters June 23.

The Importance of International Markets for Transformers, Plus Four More Allegedly Incoming

Discovering the wetness of water in economics terms, CNBC has published a short article / interview with Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, discussing the international impact and importance for US-based productions. Specifically, Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers, which are both much bigger since their first release abroad than they are in domestic markets.

In addition, they also add that the Transformers franchise will be adding four more movies at least after The Last Knight - three (ish) of which we know about: Bumblebee, Cybertron, and potentially Ancient Rome. But we personally think the article is just speculating. What do you think? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Dergarabedian said that international audiences, particularly in China, India and South America, still embrace these films because they grew up on big American blockbusters and enjoy the action-packed adventures.

"Action is the international language and that's what audiences really respond to," he said.

"The Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise isn't the only one that gets an international boost. The "Transformers" films have also been met by lackluster reviews and U.S. audience fatigue.

The fourth "Transformers" film, "Age of Extinction," which was released in 2014, garnered more than $858.6 million in international tickets. Domestically, its ticket sales for the full run of the film were about $245 million.

Dergarabedian attributed the film's international success not only to the action sequences, but the cast of Mark Wahlberg, an action movie star, and the fact that much of the film took place in a city in China. He said that international audiences like to see films set on a global stage

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

If you've looked at the movie listings this weekend, and asked yourself "Why is Disney making another 'Pirates of the Caribbean film?" you're not alone.

The fifth installment "Dead Men Tell No Tales" opens Friday in the U.S. With each new addition to the Pirates' franchise, the reviews have gotten worse and the U.S. audiences have shrunk. But overseas, fans are still enamored with Johnny Depp's swashbuckling portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow.

International markets have driven the majority of box office revenue for the "Pirates" franchise since the first film was released in 2003. At the box office "Curse of the Black Pearl" saw a pretty even split between U.S. and international ticket sales, but with each additional release, that gap has widened.

By the fourth film, "On Stranger Tides," more than 75 percent of box office revenue was earned overseas, a whopping $804.8 million.

For comparison, the film garnered $241 million in the U.S., less than the opening weekend gross of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

"U.S. audiences have been subjected to so many sequels over the decades that it is hard to maintain the excitement," Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, told CNBC.

Despite the lackluster performances in the United States, two of the "Pirates" films have garnered more than $1 billion in total global ticket sales and one fell just shy of the mark with $962 million.

Dergarabedian said that international audiences, particularly in China, India and South America, still embrace these films because they grew up on big American blockbusters and enjoy the action-packed adventures.

"Action is the international language and that's what audiences really respond to," he said.

"The Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise isn't the only one that gets an international boost. The "Transformers" films have also been met by lackluster reviews and U.S. audience fatigue.

The fourth "Transformers" film, "Age of Extinction," which was released in 2014, garnered more than $858.6 million in international tickets. Domestically, its ticket sales for the full run of the film were about $245 million.

Dergarabedian attributed the film's international success not only to the action sequences, but the cast of Mark Wahlberg, an action movie star, and the fact that much of the film took place in a city in China. He said that international audiences like to see films set on a global stage.

"If you look at the numbers, international has to be at the forefront," Dergarabedian said. "Appealing to global audiences is the driving force."

That's why this summer a fifth "Transformers" film, "The Last Knight," will hit theaters.

While several cast members of the "Pirates" franchise have hinted that there could be more films in the future, the studio does not currently have any plans for a sixth installment.

"Transformers," on the other hand, is slated to release at least four more films after "The Last Knight," one of which will be a standalone "Bumblebee" movie set for release in 2018.

After the sudden reveal of MP-39 Sunstreaker from Takara Tomy Transformers, we now have a cautious rumour about an upcoming figure in the same line. Transformers fan Jun Hasui on Facebook has shared with us an image of promotional material for the upcoming Tokyo Toy Show (more info on the event here), which appears to show the silhouette of both robot and car mode for what looks decidedly very much like Jazz.

Check out the image below, let us know what you think, and stay tuned for updates as the story develops in the next couple of weeks!

UPDATE: Thanks to Italian fan Andrea Cheem Stefanelli, among others, we have confirmation that this was a modified image showing a composite teaser. Thanks for playing!

Transformers Titans Return Quake Sighted at Australian Retail and Wave 4 Rumors

Thanks to fellow Seibertronians Rainmaker and Burn, we have some Transformers Titans Return updates from Australia, in the form of wave 4 - and possible repercussions. Rainmaker has sighted Quake, the Hardhead repaint with new Titan Master Chasm, at a Kmart in Canberra, but Burn's notification of the Ozformers page brings some bad news with the good... Read on below for more!

And as always, make sure to use our Sightings Database tool to update fellow collectors on figure availability across the globe.

A follow up to the recent sightings of Titans Return Deluxe Krok and Quake in Australia.

UNFORTUNATELY.... it looks like the delay of getting Wave 4 here (three months after America and Asia) has meant that we might have missed out on the regular wave 4 assortment, and have instead received a REVISION wave 4, as only Quake and Krok have been found at a number of stores. (the full assortment of this revision case is not yet known, but it could be wave 3 toys filling out the rest of the case)

So, what about Topspin, Perceptor and Kup?
There are no details (yet) about future case assortments beyond the regular wave 4 on the usual sites that list case assortments, so there is no information at this time about if these three toys will see a return in future waves... so we just have to hope they will.
Wave 5 has an odd number of new toys (Twintwist, Misfire, new Windblade), and hopefully Topspin will at least be re-released with Twintwist.

Until we know more (and update fans here), if you desperately want Perceptor, Kup and Topspin, perhaps look online for a reliable, affordable source.
Or... if you find the three Autobot toys at a major retailer in Australia, let us know about it, in case we did actually get some of the regular Wave 4 cases here.
