Fellow Seibertronian IAPETUS_PRIME has pointed us towards the newly revamped Hasbro Transformers website, and the new Transformers: The Last Knight mini-game that has been set up to promote the live-action movie (coming in just over a month) - Quest for Optimus Prime! The game includes the Glyph Hunt (linked only in name to the TRU Mission to Cybertron sub-line) and the Ancient Symbols sections, plus a third to be unlocked on May 29 - check some screenshots out below!

Leaving Earth, Optimus Prime planted a beacon on the moon. Sqweeks received a coded message from that beacon. The message comes from outer space and it might be from Optimus Prime. Sqweeks needs your help to decipher the message. Will you embark on this quest and find out if Optimus Prime is in danger?

Twitter user Jamie.k has spotted a new promotional cutout stand for Transformers: The Last Knight, featuring Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, at a cinema / movie theatre in Thailand. Check it out mirrored below!

Thanks to the Transformers fan page from Singapore, Planet Iacon, we have some additional info and images of those new Transformers-inspired Coca Cola Cans. Their images show many, if not all, or the designs available, as well as a new collector's box, similar to the one included in the Shadow Optimus Promo, that we haven't seen before. It includes some sort of steelbook case and three cans. It's unknown at this time what the steelbook is, and if this collector's set is also a raffle or giveaway, as the Iacon post doesn't share a lot of info on the products. Here are the images!

From We Got This Covered, once more, we have a new TV spot for Transformers: The Last Knight - featuring Bumblebee's new trick (which reminds us of some other univerzzzally hated characterzzz) as we got glimpses of in the latest international trailer.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think of the character and the movie in the Energon Pub!

looking at the way the explosion is reversing itself, i'd say it looks like someone is screwing around with Time itself.

This seems less of an official spot and more like somebody took the last bit of the trailer and posted it as it's own video.

While it does seem unfair that Bee can live while Jazz died the difference between them when I thought about were that Jazz torso was "ripped" in half like it wasn't meant to detach without consent while Bee only "detached" his part cleanly by joint within his own power.

So the gist of it is that I think it's a "damage" thing and it would be different if say somebody shot Bee in the neck and made his head fall off it would probably kill him then.

It's probably going to either be an upgrade he gets recently or a one time thing he can only do once safely...doesn't make the trick any less dumb though.

That's the pot calling the kettle black... >:oP

I am rather intrigued by this new development, though. It seems to defy all previous thoughts on the Bayverse Transformers being able to take damage. Is this something KSI cooked up in the vein of how they constructed Galvatron and the clones in the last film? Or something maybe Prime did to Bee after returning from his visit with not-Botanica? I'm excited to find out. I'm excited for this movie in general.

Nice to see you here, dude and as I said on Twitter, I love this video and how cool Barricade is in it and a nice touch with Bee's new trick too. :)

Starting the week with some Transformers: The Last Knight news, we have that Empire Magazine article (scanned by TFW2005 user Temenos) we've seen being thrown about for a while now, that accompanies the various online versions and interviews. Talking to Michael Bay directly and the writers for the movie itself, the piece covers production for TLK, and adds information about the director, the creation process and future Transformers projects with Paramount, such as the Bumblebee solo movie - apparently set in the 1980s, and probably aimed at a younger audience - and an animated prequel on Transformers lore and mythology, set on Cybertron as rumoured - the writers for Ant-Man, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, will be behind it.

Some other stand-out take-aways from the piece: The final version for the story ultimately came down to writers Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (both on Iron Man). Two pitches made into the story, but three storylines are present overall (King Arthur, WWII, and a third - probably the space/Quintessa material). Multiple time settings were considered in the writer's room pitches, and it seems that an Ancient Rome movie may appear at some point. The sixth movie was drafted before TLK was completely polished up, so it's bound to change before actual production.

Also, Michael Bay lost his hair and his dog during production of this film. And John Turturro's Simmons character is based on Bay.

I swear I've heard that Simmons was based on Bay before.

Back during the OT days I think but I don't remember where I read it.

But I do know I heard this before that I'm certain of.

Reading the article. Comments below.

* Bay lost three inches of his hair filming a fire sequence for the film 13 Hours, not TLK. This was right before he met up with the writers over Skype on the first day of the Writer Room back in June 2015.

* So it was Bay who convinced Paramount to put together the Writers Room since, in his eyes, the Transformers film franchise was "getting stale" and "gonna die" at the rate it was going.

* The writer of Black Hawk Down and the writers of Iron Man 1 being the writers of TLK give me some sense of hope that this film might possibly be a step up from the preceding sequels.

* Like Bay back in the mid-2000s, the Writers Room team had to go through "Transformers School", in which the article says that they went through "14 billion years of history".

* Prior to the Writers Room, Ken Nolan hadn't even seen any of the TF movies yet. So right before he was due for the Writers Room, he binge-watched all four of them and "almost went to an insane asylum." :lol:

* I'm a bit hesitant on the notion of this film squishing three treatments together (King Arthur, WWII, and Quintessa), as AOE already felt like 2+ films squished together haphazardly.

* Santiago Cabrera is playing Merlin? O...kay?

* In that little bit on the left side of the third page, what do these people got against the Insecticons? Even the Tom Hanks movie Big established that robots turning into insects was cool.

* The Bumblebee film having a younger tone sounds promising.

* The writers of Ant-Man doing the animated Cybertron prequel is the best news of this article yet! :KREMZEEK:

* Lorezo di Bonaventura immediately shot down any notion of an R-rated Transformers film. Good! Though, sadly, Bay likes the idea.

* Though I agree with Bay that orange is an unattractive lighting color, I wish he didn't feel that he had to cuss out his own people.

* The notion of John Turturro having based Simmons on Bay is mentioned here as something that was admitted back when the first film was made.

* Heh, Turturro previously wanted to cast Bay in a film that he (Turturro) was directing, and if Bay hadn't been in Cuba filming TLK at the time, he would have done it instead of having to turn it down. He would have played a famous hairdresser and would have shot a guy in the butt. :P
