  • Animated
  • Ant-Man writers working on it
  • Being developed by Allspark Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Boulder Media
  • Will deal with myth of creation for Cybertron.
  • May be connected to Transformers: Cyberverse series
  • Is definitely part of the Paramount/Hasbro cinematic universe

I hope it starts pre war for maybe half an hour with the rest being the war and then the last 10 minutes being after they leave Cybertron and how they got to Earth and such and a good reason why Optimus had such a small crew of himself, Jazz, Ratchet, Ironhide and presumably Bee and Hot Rod since they were together on Earth and Prime did send Bee to Earth so that means that presumably the two were together until Hot Rod went and left for reasons.

Maybe the Bee movie will have a couple of other guys with him like Cliffjumper if those on set photos are meant to be believed.

Great planning, Hasbro! Do a show about the early days of Cybertron the same year you decide the original Primes are too obscure to get proper figures. That would have been a perfect tie in for the kids. :roll:

Several jobs are available at Boulder Media for Hasbro. For those in the know Boulder Media has been in charge of making Rescue Bots. If you have ever wanted to live the dream they are looking for skilled artists and animators. Most of these jobs can be done from anywhere but it seems that a lot are based in Dublin. It will be interesting to see who will be working on upcoming projects.

We previously reported on a new logo for Rescue Bots Academy, which is in development by Boulder Media. If you would like more information, have a look at this article.

I hope someone here can enlighten me, because their PR manager hasn't answered me, the application for Character Designer, AKA my literal dream job mentions that I must be "eligible for work within the EEA(European Economic Area)" which brings me the question, can someone from outside Europe be apply for that? Because it says "eligible" not "must live in one of those countries".
I'm super excited for the job and actually meet most of the criteria, but I need to now if I can apply for that from another continent before I send my application.
Thanks!

As far as I can tell, the positions this company are offering are for those who are willing to move to Ireland.

There are several artists positions available currently. Many of them state that the work can submitted "anywhere". As far as professional digital artist jobs go, the application process is one of the least grueling I've ever encountered. Apply. What do you have to lose?

You know what? You're right!
But, what am I supposed to upload on the "Upload File" part? A CV? My works?

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.

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
