Three months after its initial release, the Michael Bay Transformers movie is still breaking records. Yahoo! Finance reports that over the weekend, Transformers became the second highest grossing foreign movie of all time in China, when it surpassed 100 million yuan ($13.3 million) mark set by The Da Vinci Code. With $37.3 million to its name, Transformers is only behind James Cameron's Titanic, which had earned $48 million in China.

On a side note, the Transformers movie was apparently able to achieve this feat, without much aid of public commercial support. Earlier it was reported that the Chinese goverment had banned all media coverage surrounding the movie. This was however disputed.

    The visuals being such a large part of the movie, here's a little interview by Cindy White of 'Sci Fi Wire' that is of interest to many of us, and reveals broad plans for the next installment...

    "Scott Farrar, visual-effects supervisor and second-unit director of Michael Bay's Transformers, told SCI FI Wire that the recently announced sequel will be more ambitious visually.

    "We want to improve on some of the processes that we did," Ferrar said in an interview at Industrial Light & Magic in San Francisco, where the film's transforming robots were created. "I think what we're going to do is get faster and know our problems sooner and quicker. And then, of course, I know Michael's always thinking about new, crazy actions. And we're open to that."

    After discussing the monumental task of creating the effects for the first film, Farrar groaned and fell off his chair in jest when asked about the sequel, which was announced last week with an anticipated release date of June 26, 2009.

    "It's a circus, and they're going to raise the tight-wire walker a little bit higher next time," he said. "But it's all going to be dramatic. I think the commitment is not to just chuck out a sequel. The commitment is, and this makes us really happy here, that it's a deep story. There are lots of layers to the story of all these Decepticons, everybody. And so they want to really keep the characters rich."

    Farrar added that the filmmakers plan to use the techniques and technology they learned on the first film to make the second even better. "It was difficult and, I think, laborious and I think we learned a lot by the end," he said. "I think we've learned a lot about lighting, and I think we can go to much moodier lighting. Lots of things. It'll be improved."

    Transformers will be released on DVD and HD DVD Oct. 16. -Cindy White"

    A Quick Look At Unreleased Unicron Battles Space Team And Adventure Team

    One can never get enough mini-cons...

    And apparently, this collector has taken it even further than many of us ever imagined possible. He was able to procure himself two previously un-released packages of minicons.

    As you can clearly see in the photos, these were ready to be produced, but then trashed at the last minute making only a small handful available (--yes, it's that old story again--).

    Black Gears.com was able to get these super rare samples, making many of us envious, and has now taken in package pictures to share with the community at large.



    Enjoy knowing that this is yet another very rare collectible that many of us will never, ever own (and many won't care to either...)!

    Any fans of the seekers have probably been looking at this picture and the other un-released artworks from G2 and salivating.

    Well, prepare to increase drooling, as TF-1.com reviews this very rare prototype toy, G2 Ramjet 'Desert Camouflage' version.

    Not only is it fun to read about the history, but it is also very cool (and yet sad) to see the direction G2 may have gone, had it lasted longer. It is also interesting to see the toy piece at this stage, and imagine what it would look like as a completed final version.

    Enjoy the review, and remember, our buddy Ramjet gets his own IDW comic book Spotlight coming up this November. Probably won't have the camouflage color scheme, but the tough attitude, and head on collisions are sure to be there a plenty!

    For comparisons, you can also check out the extensive Seibertron.com galleries of Generation One Ramjet, and Classics Ramjet, and the rest of his incarnations here!
