Seibertronians, are you ready for some more TF5 news? Well, we've got some!

First, according to his Instagram, Michael Bay has a new camera! This one's special because it's been custom built for him by the camera company RED! It's got some cool details, including a special TF5 Megatron medallion on the side! He's shared a video of him using it on a Victoria's Secret Campaign he's currently working on in Paris! Do you think he'll use it for The Last Knight? Check it out below!



Next, we've got a bunch of new photo and video from the Transformers set on the Isle of Skye, in Scotland, that we reported on earlier. These new angles come to us from Buchanan Photos, and Michael Bay's Instagram. The photos show that same actor (who is speculated to be Merlin, as per the rumors) riding his horse across the Isle, with more helicopter shots, as well as some pictures of the crew, and a better look at staff that may or may not be a little alien in origin...

The video, on the other hand, shows Michael Bay on location in Scotland (wearing a pretty cool hat, if I do say so myself), showing just how scenic it is up there.

Filming resumes. UK. Transformers

So, what do you think of the filming in Scotland? Does it confirm the Arthurian rumors going around? If it's true, what other rumors do you think are legit? Let us know in the comments! And, as always, keep your optics and audio sensors tuned to Seibertron.com!

Thank you Michael Bay for proving you will use any excuse to show a sexualized woman.

Citizens of Seibertron, news had broken, thanks to the website VG Film, that the next stop for the TF5 filming crew will be Norway! Yes, after they wrap up on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, they'll make their way east! Locations seem to include Pulpit Rock, Atlantic Road, and Trolltunga.

The filming is set to include a crew of 50 or 60 people, which is larger than the crew currently in Scotland, but none of the Actors themselves are set to appear yet. After Norway, the next stop for filming will be back west, to London, England! It's interesting how the filming has had such a specific focus on London.

The filming in Norway will take place anytime after October 2nd, so be sure to watch Seibertron.com for updates and set photos!

What do you think they're going to film in Norway? Other Transformers fans have noted that you can easily see the northern lights very often in Norway...Will that play into the movie in any way? What actors do you think will be appearing? What about Sir Anthony Hopkins? He joined the cast a while ago, but has yet to make an appearance on set (as far as we know). Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

And, as always, keep your optics and audio sensors tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest Transformers New and Reviews!

Lots of people will try to criticize Mr. Bay, and in the end, they will end up using his technology/ideas...

I respect his job, always out of the box!

His technology is one of the few legitimately praiseworthy things about the movies.

Caught wind of this just now:

http://mashable.com/2016/08/29/transfor ... EpwLOSmaqu

Can't believe they are doing the King Arthur thing actually and in talks to cast someone that played the role in something entirely unrelated. I hope it doesn't suck. Likely it'll be controversial for the fandom though.

As long as this Arthur isn't anything like that twatwaffle Arthur he played on OUAT.

I honestly haven't even watched OUAT mostly due to the fact I've been binging on Arrow, The Flash, and Transformers Animated (which I'm super glad I gave it another chance as suggested) as of late. I keep putting it off, but I probably should hop on it. Twatwaffle is also a creative insult. I'll have to add that to my repertoire. :P

With the King Arthur age and his knights clearly showing up in the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie, we bring to you exciting news that Liam Garrigan, the actor who portrays King Arthur in Once Upon a Time is currently in talks to play the same character for the upcoming Transformers movie! While Paramount has not responded to requests for comment, it appears that King Arthur is firmly in play and that Garrigan may very well portray 2 Kings in his life. Check out the full news story HERE.

Is this like adapted from that time travel episode in G1?

That's actually what I was wondering when I came across the article in the first place. A lot of the Bayformers films are inspired by a few G1 episodes too in terms of basic plot outlines, so it's not too much of a surprise to me they're doing another that's based on something previously.

Michael Bay is an incredible director. The bar wasn't set very high with the first movie, and he manages to limbo under it with each subsequent film.

It's also possible that, instead of any time travel, all the Arthurian scenes take place entirely in flashbacks. Maybe a reasonable amount of the film is set in the past the natural way.

I'm going to guess this as the most likely scenario all the films in the first 2/5 minutes have a flash back to a long time ago.

Which would mean it draws just as much inspiration from the first TF UK comic arc, "Man of Iron", as "A Decepticon Raider In King Arthur's Court".

And it's about time. Because when I first heard Bay watched every episode of the G1 cartoon, but nothing about comics, I asked myself, if I was able to recommend just one comic story to him to research, what would it be? Man of Iron, no question. It may not have contributed anything enduring to the mythos (partly because it's an awkward fit in Marvel continuity), but it always felt more like the comic adaptation of a British TF movie that didn't quite get made in 1985. Well, now that movie will actually sort of exist, and I can't complain about that.

It was also the first story to play with the 4-million-year gap, and considering all 4 Bay films have done some variation on that to try and ground the story's stakes in Earth history, it's just a natural fit.

And if he leaves Lancelot and the round table out of the story (as they surely won't have time to stop off in France), TF:TLK will be a tad more historically accurate than most movies involving King Arthur, FWIW.

That's personally what I'm hoping for myself in this instance.

Most likely flashbacks, I can't see time travel being worked realistically into the film.

And Graham Chapman is the best King Arthur.
