Now that the embargo is out for Seibetron's visit of Kabam studios and all that they saw and heard, we wanted to share a specific tidbit related to the Transformers: The Last Knight film. Due to their close connection with Hasbro, two of Kabam's high ranking staff read the script to Transformers: The Last Knight inorder to see how they could related some of it to the game. They had to pick one new character to include in the Forged to Fight game. After reading the script there was no doubt in their minds that the best character to add would be Hot Rod.

"We wanted Hot Rod, he was the stand out bot in the film" - Mike McCartney

"We had almost no reference for his fighting style so we asked Hasbro and they told us he was like Errol Flynn but fighting closer to the ground" - Cuz Parry

Another cool tidbit was that while we were able to play with Hot Rod as a character in Forged to Fight while we visited the studio, we were unable to pull off his signature third special. It was locked since it was Hot Rod making use of a special weapon he uses in the movie and they didn't want to spoil anything. My persoal guess is that it's a bone saw, one can dream.

The next installment of the Transformers live action film series is so close you can almost taste it, so that of course means that the promotional material won't stop coming until the movie's release, as we've seen in the past few weeks. Today's comes from notable Youtuber The Ragin Nation, who often covers Transformers-related topics. He posted a quick video depicting a dashcam video from a Police Department in Florida that features a certain Lamborghini Centenario! Check out what happens in the leaked video below!

Is anyone who saw the movie saying whether or not they liked it, or are they just dumping spoilers?

Mark Wahlberg recently went on The Tonight Show, where him and a newly-bearded Jimmy Fallon talked bots, specifically those in the upcoming Transformers The Last Knight. He went into previously unknown aspects of Cade Yeager's role in the upcoming film. He reveals that Tessa has been sent to try and live a normal, Transformer-free life while he remains on the run, as well as how he gets looped in with Anthony Hopkins' and Laura Haddock's characters. The interview also featured an extended look at that first interaction between the inventor and the Oxford professor. Check it out below!

Continuing with the barrage of new TV spots, we have the 32nd ad for Transformers The Last Knight. Titled "Final Chapter", there are only a few new scenes in this variant, one of them a shot of Megatron flipping out his battle mask! Check out the trailer below, and let us know if you'll be seeing Transformers The Last Knight later this month!

Oh yeah, I saw this on TV a few minutes ago. I thought it was old, since I've been staying away from all the new TV spots.

Variety keeps tabs on which movie marketing campaign spends the most money on television ad space every week and last week, it was Paramount that won the number 1 spot. They spent $7.34 million worth of ads in one week and we probably know best due to the overabundance of new tv spots emerging all through last week.

here is a short blub from the article which you can fully read here.

Ads placed for the fifth installment of the toy-spawned movie franchise had an estimated media value of $7.34 million through Sunday for 992 national ad airings across 38 networks. (Spend figures are based on estimates generated from June 5-11. Estimates may be updated after the chart is posted as new information becomes available.) Paramount appears to be targeting a millennial-skewing audience, with key ad placements during both “Tosh.0” and “The Amazing World of Gumball,” as well as during the NBA Finals.

Cogman is fun. :)

Ok no more. I think I may now ban myself from this site for a week or so til I see the film hopefully next Thursday.


Oh and I don't know if anyone cares or has mentioned it already but tweeting the hashtag #Transformers on Twitter is followed by an automatic emoji of the movieverse's Autobot symbol. :P

With the Chinese premiere not too long ago, we can expect some new trailers that show a little bit more of what we can expect from The Last Knight. Courtesy from 9 Media on YouTube, we have a six minute compilation of several Chinese trailers following the Chinese premiere. The first one alone has a couple of new scenes; the audience and fans are treated to hearing Megatron for the first time, as well as Infernocus splitting up into his individual components. The other trailers are also worth checking out, as they have a couple of extended scenes that we have already seen.



With just less than a week to go, The Last Knight is gearing up to be one of the biggest movies of the year. Are you just as excited as we are?

In homage to Shockwave in the DOTM trailers, it looks like we already get too see Infernocus's brutal demise in the trailers alone.
