Simon Furman has once again updated his blog, this time concerning Subcon in Dublin. Furman has let slide another juicy tidbit of information:

I managed not to reveal the subject of the second (or three) Spotlights I’m currently writing for IDW, but did let slip that (within the covers of that same un-named Spotlight) a certain Fortress Maximus makes his full IDW debut (albeit in a supporting role).

First review of Transformers Movie 2 Disc Special Edition

With only just over a week until the DVD release in the United States, some lucky person has received a early copy of the Transformers Movie DVD, and has promptly posted a review over at hometheaterforum.com.

Video:
Perfect. Stunning. Pick your adjective. Colors are gorgeous and vibrant, details are fine, blacks are deep. Even fog, dust, and smoke looks good, a normal limitation of DVD. Shot and presented in 2.35:1, I cannot imagine this set looking any better. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to pick up the HD-DVD; but the DVD is satisfying.

Audio:
Much like the video, expectations were high. The soundscape is amazing, the score is beautiful, and half of the battle is drawn aurally. Thankfully the 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track completely lives up to expectations. Dialogue comes through crystal clear, the bass rumbles and growls.

Extras:
Unsurprisingly the extra features are plentiful on the 2-disc DVD set, commencing with a feature-length commentary from director Michael Bay. Bay is chatty and filled with information, though he does justify a lot of his choices, explaining how fans reacted and why he disregarded their opinions.

Themed as a series of featurettes dealing with various aspects of the story, the second disc goes through everything you would like to know about the construction of the movie. From the initial story to envisioning the look of the true stars to the directing style of Michael Bay, no stone is left unturned. The documentaries do duplicate a lot of the information Bay discusses in the commentary. Broken down by themes, Our World takes on the making of the movie. Their War goes through the history of the Transformers brand, its fans, and how they translated a cheesy cartoon show into a series of badass robots. Each individual character is broken down from concept to completion. Integrated are deleted and extended scenes, though I would have liked to have them separated.

From “Script to Sand” goes through the mapping of the first scene in the film, from scrip to storyboard and animatics to the final product.

After seeing some of the concept art, I want the book that features it all. Gorgeous paintings abound in this series, which plays like a slideshow, scored to the film’s theme.

The musician best known to Transformers fans for "Dare" and "The Touch" from the original Transformers movie soundtrack (1986), Stan Bush, had some sad news to report on his MySpace Blog.

The UK Concerts set for Oct 5th at Rio's in Leeds and Oct 6th at Rock City in Nottingham have been cancelled. Because of an immigration policy, the singer was denied entry into the United Kingdom.

The following has been taken directly from his MySpace Blog.

"I was denied entry into the UK because of an immigration policy
involving a work permit, so my shows there were canceled. I apologize for any inconvenience to
my fans, many of whom traveled great distances. I did everything I could, but it was
beyond my control. We're looking ahead to arrange something there in the near future.

Yours,

Stan Bush

Seibertron.com member mr.terrific has let us know that he recently contacted the Best Buy chain in Canada for information regarding the store-exclusive Transformers Movie DVD. Though the message is not clear as to whether or not the Best-Buy exclusive Robot Heroes are also included in the Canadian set, it does state that the Canadian DVD set will come with a 32-page book that is not included in the American Best-Buy set.

Here is the original email as sent to mr.terrific:

Thank you for your email regarding Transformers (Widescreen) (Best Buy
Exclusive) (2007).

We have investigated and confirmed that the two sets are not the same. The US
one comes with 2 figurines and does not make any mention of the 32 page book
that comes with the one available on the Canadian site.

Member Alex reports in on a new contest related to the DVD release of the movie this month:

"In addition to the Hostess and Chevy contests, Heavy.com is hosting a Paramount-sponsored "Transformers Ultimate Fan" video contest to promote the October 16th release of the Transformers DVD.

Contestants will submit 3 minute long videos demonstrating their superfandom in hopes of winning a cash prize of $1000 along with $440 worth of Transformers movie swag. To enter, contestants will have to upload their videos through the contest page at Heavy.com before early November. I believe this sort of thing has already been done by others for the theatrical release of the TF movie."


So for the creative folks in our audience, have a go, and good luck!!!

Recently several reporters were invited for a tour on the grounds of Industrial Light & Magic. Amoungst them was IGN.com. They have put up an article on their site about the tour they got by visual effects supervisor on the Transformers Movie, Scott Farrar.

Aside from the tour, they also got the chance to ask some questions, like why Optimus Prime was given a mouth and how much Michael Bay was involved with ILM. Go to IGN.com for the complete article and interview

"Michael is always thinking about new and crazy actions. It's a circus and we're going to raise the tight-rope a little higher next time. It'll all be very dramatic. The commitment is not just to chuck out a sequel. It's a deep story; there are lots of layers. They want to really keep these characters rich….It'll be improved".
