We have a small update from Irish company Boulder Media - the studio behind Danger Mouse - currently collaborating with Hasbro on the creation of Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy, other animated series in the Hasbro shared Universe (such as Micronauts) and the yet untitled animated feature movie that will serve as a prequel on Cybertron, developed by Hasbro's Allspark Pictures, Paramount, and Boulder Media Studio.

The update, you ask? They're looking for more roles to work on that animated movie project, from concept to Character design, modeling to animation and more - and they're scouting all across Europe for their Dublin based studio! Meaning they'll hit Dublin, London, Paris, Lisbon, Madrid, Milan and Barcelona during February and March. If this is something you might be interested, and live in any of the countries with access to the cities, take a look below at the schedule, and here at the roles.

WE'RE HIRING!! Boulder Media, in partnership with Hasbro, are looking for animation professionals for the first CG feature film to be made in Ireland. Join us for a drink and a chat in a city near you. See you there.

I'm looking forward to the prequel very interested on where they go with it, kinda hoping it takes some inspiration from the movie IDW comics but not a copy and paste of the plot.

I would kind of hope it has nothing to do with the Bay movies, or even the IDW stuff.

I wouldn't mind them adopting IDW story arcs into animated movies in the same vein as DC.

From all that's been said of it, it apparently will pertain to the live action movies, serving as a prequel to those set on Cybertron in the past.

Though, when Deadput said "IDW comics", he meant the Movieverse ones that IDW released for the first trilogy, which helped to make that trilogy make more sense until AOE and TLK threw those comics out the window.

Yeah I don't know what people think I mean when I say "movie IDW comics" that's why I added movie to it.

Also yeah it's gonna be Bay verse related, that's what all the info we have gotten for "Transformers: One" is.

i think the movie verse does need some expanding in areas like that ;)^

The main thing i see is a transformers film that's animated, and is set on cybertron. that means one thing to me, NO STUPID HUMANS. the thing I've wanted for so long....

If they're paying attention then people need to start telling them to STOP with this solo 1 character crap & make TRANSFORMERS movies. Transformers was never about 1 character. A whole movie dedicated to Bumblebee shouldn't even exist. We didn't need the Bumblebee origin story from the 2007 movie repeated all over again. Pretty much the same exact thing we already saw with Sam Witwicky has been copied with Charlie. And they shouldn't make a whole movie dedicated to Optimus Prime. Just make Transformers movies, 2 armies of characters at war. Please stop this 1 character solo crap. Where did this idea come from & how do we make it stop??? They can easily tell Optimus Prime's origin story in a flashback that only takes up a few minutes. We don't need an entire movie dedicated to it.

We're getting a movie like that as well, we're just getting extra solo movies to learn more about the characters, other characters will be in their, just think about the titles as who the films focal point is centered on. I mean it's generally easier and more refined to tell a story about one character and tf media has done this in the past, I mean the old G1 cartoon did it all the time

Kind of like the upcoming IDW reboot. It'll be interesting to compare the two.

That just means it will be all CGI. Something Knight said wanted to make a month ago as a prequel to bumblebee about the war before he decided he wanted to focus on smaller stuff

Also, this film has been in the works since last year https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... vie/39165/

And it was then already confirmed to be definitely part of the Paramount/Hasbro cinematic universe (just as much as Bumblebee is)

You know there is a way to some what creatively get a few of Optimus Prime's backstories in one film/story.

Put in most of them! (Yeah I probably lost a few people with that)

Some people go through different jobs in life, the OP movie could partially deal with Optimus trying to find his place in the world prior to becoming the Autobot leader. (And maybe a Prime along the way if were going with the Prime is a rank thing.)

He could start off in life as lowly repair technician like TFA (Probably not something as grand as space bridges), later getting the attention of Alpha Trion who hires him to be a data archiver like TFP, however later on he gains the desire for adventure and glory whether that's inspiration from Megatron or a personal desire (Op doesn't have to be perfect prior to becoming Prime since this is a "heroes journey" type movie) and joins up with some sort of police force or Elite Guard as a cadet like IDW and I guess TFA to an extent, his heroics in the line of duty gets him noticed by the current council or Prime which leads to him getting the official Prime title or a high position which leads to jealousy from Megatron which leads to them to officially break their partner ship, afterwards on Prime has to lie low which he does by becoming a dock worker before being eventually found.


Also had this idea for a Knights of the Round table inspired council of Prime's which would be a group of 13 who are inspired by the legend of the 13 (No actual proof if they actually exist or not in the movie), with different Primes, some being ones we know like Sentinel Prime, Zeta Prime, Star Saber Prime and Nova Prime or some of the Cybertron guys like Override with some new guys like Steelbane Prime (Yes inspired by that TLK toy), a Constructicon Prime and maybe some minor characters who visually take from some of the different Optimus's like RId2001 or Armada.

Optimus would be the newest member and replacing a recently killed member which could either be someone he never met or maybe his mentor Prime like Sentinel or something.

And not every single member would be dead by the time the war starts like say Star Saber who gives up his title to lead an Autobot fleet in space or Override becoming a high ranked soldier.


Anyways I think an Optimus Prime film should not also be the Cybertron war film, I would say leave the War for it's own film besides the start of it and a notable battle or two that way the war can get the screen time it deserves as well as focus on a different cast.

This is exactly what I was referring to in my last post which got buried as the last post of the previous page. Thanks for finding the link ;)^

To be fair, he was only a technician because of that mission he and sentinel screwed up. I prefer the space cop approach of IDW, but would love to see a new take on it. They could even do the whole Prime is Megatrons brother and run away with that,

Yeah I know, just wanted to start him out with a lowly job therefor his whole rise to the greater good has more oomph.

Also wanted to start Optimus (Or Orion Pax) as an every man and not as a "awesome guy" from birth, even then the other jobs like Data Archiver and then Cop/Elite Guard Cadet aren't really special positions either, he would get noticed and eventually become Prime (Or just a high position if we don't go for the Primes as ranks thing) for his own actions and outstanding heroics, not just he so happens to already have a specific job.

From the way I would write him, I want him to be this humble guy who has to work to earn his position and as well as not putting in the work because he wants a higher position but because he's trying to do the right thing for his fellow Transformers, early on he would have his rough bumps but that's so he can have character development and eventually become the great Optimus Prime, I don't want him to start out as already perfect.

Edit: Actually with the idea of Megatron I had the idea that Transformers don't normally have military type bodies normally, Seekers and other military bodies like Vehicons and tanks would be stock bodies that other Transformers transfer their bodies into whether voluntarily or having to repay a debt.

Megatron would start as a mining type vehicle, and the only differences he would make once becoming the Decepticon leader would be to add a canon and get a fresh coat of paint, so Megatron wouldn't have a military type body but a normal body that was modified for war.

It would give more of a reason for why Autobots tend to just be normal body type characters.

Bonaventura had their hands in the 1986 animated film if I recall. Whether they were or not, I believe this film will be based on the siege toy line to jumpstart it and create interest in it for the younger generation while doing a fan service for us OGs

I stand corrected. It was delarentes that dealt with 1986 film

I do have my suspicions that Siege and it's following toylines in the War for Cybertron series will be used as a base for the Cybertron story and characters.

Agreed. It makes sense for them to do that. Just the look of the toy line is like a soft reboot of G1 and the comics are following suit also if I'm not mistaken. It makes sense to unify it to help promote the toy line and reignite interest for those just getting into the franchise
