Seibertron's own BigBot has found an interesting tidbit of information, relating to the UK DVD release:

The total length of the extras is 148 minutes and 2 seconds.

Firstly, there are 3 easter eggs, titled "Michael Bay Cameo" (2m29s), "Girl in Dress" (1m57s) and "The Bay-Bot" (14s) and an extra feature not mentioned on the press releases, "Casting Mojo" (1m14s).

The most interesting thing is the possiblity of DELETED SCENES on the disc. There are 10 listed and are summed up below:

Sam Picks Up Miles - 28 sec
Maggie and Glen Intro - 1 min 49 sec
Police Station Drug Video - 41 sec
Fig wounded - 48 sec
Fig Death - 1 min 14 sec
Suv - 2 min 22 sec
Big Rhonda - 1 min 17 sec
Hoover Dam - 1 min 9 sec
Proving Lab - 58 sec
Simmon's President Speech - 23 sec

It isn't confirmed whether these are on the disc but if Paramount have spent the money to get them rated there is a very good chance.


The Deleted scenes are the same ones that can be seen in the IMAX version of the film, as Starscream reviewed in this thread.

Knight Rider TV Series Returns...Because of Transformers

One of the more popular TV Shows of the 80's is set to make its return to the small screen. NBC has announced it plans on bringing back the Knight Rider series. The series revolved around a high-tech computerized car known as K.I.T.T. (originally voiced by William Daniels) and its driver Michael Knight (originally played by David Hasselhoff).

Variety reports that the inspiration for bringing back the series to TV was brought on by the Michael Bay Transformers movie.

"Success of "Transformers" had a role in inspiring NBC Entertainment chief Ben Silverman's decision to revive "Knight." The thinking is that smallscreen f/x have advanced to the point where it'd be feasible to have a weekly series in which cars shift shapes".

"There's also huge potential for advertiser integration. General Motors was all over "Transformers," and it's easy to see NBC striking a rich deal with a single automaker to serve as the exclusive auto brand for the new "Knight." It's understood preliminary talks have already begun".

Owning MP Megatron in Australia

Transformers News: Owning MP Megatron in Australia

For those who may have missed all the news a few months ago when Masterpiece Megatron was released, a number of Australian collectors found their MP Megatron's seized by Australian Customs.

They had decided that MP Megatron was to be classified as a "replica firearm" and could only be imported if you had appropriate licenses and what not.

Not all Megatron's were seized and some made it through, but a number of them were which spurred Australian Collector Tiby (a practicing Lawyer) into action to help his fellow collectors get their hands on Megatron without too much hassle.

The result hasn't been highly overwhelming but the Government and Customs have made regulations for collectors to import and own Megatron legally.

The full story

Tiby :
Announcement on 25 September 2007 by Police Minister David Campbell. Click here

I am setting up a collector's club which will be open for collectors to join, and thereby fulfil one of the requirements for owning Masterpiece Megatron. To quote the Minister, the requirements are as follows:

· Undergoing a criminal and probity check;

· Providing a genuine reason for ownership of the toy;

· Providing proof of membership to a collector’s club; and

· Abiding by safe storage, surrender and disposal requirements.

The criminal and probity check is a Firearms Registry requirement, and usually done by local police.

A genuine reason for ownership of the toy is that a person is a collector of Transformers.

Proof of membership of a collector's club will be part of what I will provide in the club.

Safe storage includes a locked cabinet. I recommend the following:

Display and Rack Systems

I will update this site as the club progresses with more details on how to join.

Thanks for your support!


The collector's club he's setting will no doubt be Australian only, however if you're Australian and already a member of the international club that should cover you.

Either way, plenty of hoops to jump through just to own a toy.

IDW writer Simon Furman has once again updated his Blog, this time talking about the work he and Ben Yee put into created the upcoming Beast Wars Sourcebooks.

Some excerpts from his blog post can be found below:

But a unified Beast Wars universe, one that amalgamates the US Beast Wars TV series/toy line with its Japanese counterparts (BW II and BW Neo) and, for good measure, the convention/store exclusive toy characters. That was what we (myself and bwtf.com’s Ben Yee) set out to do when (over a year ago now) we began to craft a four-issue sourcebook/profile series for Transformers Beast Wars, the first issue of which is available next week. No easy task, as there are elements of the Japanese shows that just aren’t easily compatible with the US series.

Over the course of the four issues, no less than 162 characters are profiled, and (in issue #4) there’s an extensive glossary. Entries vary from one to two to three pages, depending on number of alt. forms or variations. Main characters, such as Optimus Primal and Megatron get the full three-page treatment, even including early (unused in the TV show) forms such as bat Primal and croc Megatron. It took a good chunk of time to write all four issues, and longer still for IDW editorial to commission the illustrations and compile the books. But here we are at last. Beast Wars Sourcebook #1 hits the stores on Oct 3rd (US) and Oct 4th (UK).

Bad news for those in Australia hoping that Melbourne would not be the only place getting the Transformers Movie on the IMAX screen.

I received an email from Paul Travis, the Operations Manager of IMAX Sydney, confirming that they will not be showing it.

We have decided not to screen Transformers as we did not feel that a film that had already been released in main stream cinema was the correct business decision for the Sydney Theatre.

We are looking forward to our next feature film release, Beowulf, in November.

Regards,

PAUL TRAVIS
Operations Manager
LG IMAX Theatre Sydney


So Melbourne, the city of AFL and Trams seems to be the only place to see Transformers on the IMAX Screen. To see the session times for the Melbourne screenings, check out the IMAX Melbourne Site

I am presenting this as a rumor for now, but the LA Times started the ball rolling with an article they did on Spielberg.
