Transformers fans in the UK will be able to own Transformers: The Last Knight soon. We have posted the exclusive trailer below for your viewing pleasure. According to the video description we now know some release dates.

The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).


Available to Download & Keep - 16th October
Available on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray & 4K UHD - 30th October

I gave the film 4\10 and that was being kind. Another movie that features humans doing stuff with a bit of robot action now and then. Another movie where prime spouts 'I'll kill you'. Absolute crap. At least the scenery was nice. The Transformers are simply throw away items to these films.

Collider posted some new concept images from Transformers: The Last Knight. In it is an interesting take on the gladiatorial arena from what possibly is Kaon between both Optimus Prime and Megatron fighting in said area. Which is a change up because Optimus wasn't a gladiator to begin with! The article is worth checking out for the concept art pieces alone, but it offers insight into the special features of the discs too as a refresher.

That wouldn't make sense to be a flashback shot since Megs and Prime are both in their newer modes. Yeah, I know, "nothing makes sense in Bayverse" is what SOMEONE is gonna say, but I wonder if they were gonna have Megs and Prime duke it out on Cybertron at some point and that got cut from the script. I could see Megs arranging that with Quintessa because he'd love to put Prime there for a 1 vs 1. Missed opportunity for sure.

Since this is concept art, it seems more likely that the designer just grabbed a couple of random character models as an example.

My theory is that Optimus would have returned to Cybertron after TF4 and would have been force to fight in a gladiator arena.

Thanks to an article posted on SyFy, we have a bunch of new concept art from Transformers: The Last Knight for you to check out! Among the new art pieces shown off are a Samurai-styled Knight with a wicked spiked sword, another shot of the Arena where previous art showed Optimus and Megatron standing, which was likely a cut section dealing with gladiatorial combat on Cybertron at some point, and some more images of Cybertron and Megatron meeting with TRF.

Man, I can't shake the feeling that the "BG Building Concept v004" looks a lot like a sideways, half-buried Quintesson ship. I mean knowing this movie, it's absolutely a coincidence, but an interesting one nonetheless.

That "arena" is part of the interior of the Guardian Knights' ship. That Optimus and Megatron were shown fighting each other there in another art piece suggests that their brief fight on top of the ship in the movie may have originally been set inside the ship instead.

Furio has posted another Concept piece of the Knights this time it's the one that inspired the toy of Steelbane although this look itself never made it into the movie.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BZQe0_4FkxN/?taken-by=furio_tedeschi
Image


Since this is the only new thing I'm going to post some of the other Knight's of Iacon concept art.

The leader Knight which inspired the toy of Stormreign who is one half of Leader Dragonstorm, beside being red he doesn't look like this much in the actual movie.
Image

This is one of the "generic" ones with a unused helmet design that seems to have inspired Drgonicus the other half of leader Dragonstorm
Image

Cool helmet guy who basically looks like this in the film besides maybe some minor differences.
Image

Don't think this design was in the film but he looks cool.
Image

Helmet for many knights such as the small green Talisman knight from the beginning of the movie.
Image

A Samurai knight (From Josh Nizzi instead of Furio) interestingly enough it seems like the shoulder armor inspired the red knight's shoulder armor in the movie which is pretty much the only unique thing about him in the movie besides his armor color Image

This one was one of many rough sketches from Wesley Burt not sure if anything about this is in the final designs but he looks cool and kinda looks like he could of been one of the many other Knights outside the main 12 (Green knight, Skullitron) maybe an Alpha Trion type.
Image

Here is a screenshot of some of the final knights for comparison.

Watching the opening again, i realised the red knight isn't part of dragonstorm. He's still talking to merlin and hands him th staff after dragonstorm is already airborne. Maybe he really is scorn who later was captured by lockdown?

That screenshot from the movie takes place during the modern day and not the past,the guy ain't Scorn.

The Knights are said to be 12 guys and not including green knight who is established to be seperate 3 were killed yet they still become Dragonstorm so I believe that you don't need all 12 to form him especially how they transform into him "ksi" style.

Plus knights of Iacon are not the same knights that The Dinobots and Prime are part of.


I don't see how any one thinks he is Scorn since the only things they share are red armor and even then in different shades their also different heights that's like thinking Canopy is Bumblebee just because their both yellow...oh wait people did think that.

Awesome analysis of the designs, Deadput! That was really cool to read where each design came from and where it went (and/or didn't go) in the movie proper ;)^


Insurgent wrote:Watching the opening again, i realised the red knight isn't part of dragonstorm. He's still talking to merlin and hands him th staff after dragonstorm is already airborne. Maybe he really is scorn who later was captured by lockdown?

I mean speaking from a rational point of view, in terms of the intent of the movie itself, he's just a generic character who was never intended to be anyone or ever appear or matter again. Outside of that and especially from a toy design perspective, I can definitely see him inspiring/being inspired by Scorn, particularly the new Voyager toy. Check it (embedding this again for the second time in three posts, sure why not):

Image
Those shoulders seem pretty distinctly Scorn-like to me, I can see where the wide semi-rectangular chest became/came from Scorn's toy(s), the hip-armor is very similar in general design, long pointy crotch-armor, general shape of the calves and the pointy-toed boots (albeit not pointing upward like Scorn's). I could even see where those pointy bits on either side of the helmet's chin could've become Voyager Scorn's weird dumb Kronk chin.

Personally what I think is most likely, is the following: Hasbro wanted to make a toy of the red knight because they thought it'd be somewhat marketable (and let's be honest, if they decided to make multiple Berserker toys but nothing of say, Onslaught, they're not exactly basing their decisions on screentime here). They didn't have an altmode or really anything definite so they noticed the concept art's similarities to Scorn, decided that'd work, slapped some dino kibble on the concept-art guy, gave him a half-melted version of Scorn's head and called it a day. Makes more sense than Scorn getting a Voyager-class toy for literally no reason, especially one that's still red when all the other Dinobot toys were toned-down silvers, browns and blues.

But hey what do I know, I'm just some guy with too much spare time to overthink things and way too many toys :P

Oh. Didn't realise that was Red Knight in your screen shot. Was on the phone when I looked at that, small screen.


Oh well. Would have been a nice talking point.

How do we know they are two different Knights? What are the Dinobots and Prime from then?


Canopy is yellow? It's like the reverse G1 Constructicons. Haha. I always see them as yellow, and I thought Canopy was green.



Yes, I can totally see Red Knight being a Pre-Dino Scorn. Thank you for putting in words what I was seeing, with the design cues. And we don't know when he got his dino mode. Yes, he is intended to be generic Red Knight and nothing more, but sometimes, it's fun to make theories up about random stuff. After all, why else would we be on a discussion forum?

Totally agreed - discussion is the root of all... something. Knowledge? Entertainment? I really should've planned my pithy saying in advance...

(I'm also probably gonna headcanon red-knight-dudeman as Scorn even if it doesn't quite make sense, 'cause I like the idea and hell, the movies themselves don't always make a lotta sense either :-P )
Re: Transformers: The Last Knight Character Tournament On Facebook Live (1912150)
Posted by Deadput on September 21st, 2017 @ 6:08am CDT
So your saying that Scorn started out as the knight of Iacon leader that formed Dragonstorm then hooked up with Grimlock and became a titan with his own individual dino mode and lost his arm before shrinking down and completely changing armor before going to slumber in the underwater ship with the Iacon knights instead of waking up his comrades then waking up and trying to kill optimus even though he fought with him before?

Not only does this not make sense its impossible in canon.
Re: Transformers: The Last Knight Character Tournament On Facebook Live (1912151)
Posted by Insurgent on September 21st, 2017 @ 6:22am CDT
It does make sense!

That's why we didn't see him in the Junkyard! After he escaped Lockdown's ship, he decided to bugger off and find his knightly bretherin. And knowing where Merlin's tomb was, he went off to investigate and when he got there, formatted himself back to his non dino mode. And went into slumber so he could honour his brothers in arms by staying by their side.


Grimlock never got on with his other knights and didn't care, so stayed behind with Cade because free food. Slug went off to tour the world with Strafe but they had a lovers tiff over the true parentage of the baby dinobots and split up. Slug was making his way back to the Junkyard when the Decepticons attacked. That's why he randomly appeared briefly there, but he didn't know where everyone ran off to, as the town trap was established after they left. So he just went to the junkyard and hung out with Trench for the rest of the film. Strafe heard good things about Isla Nublar so flew off to see what that place was like.



This is why I don't talk much on these forums lately. Everyone seems to be taking this hobby far too seriously. So I'm putting some of the silly fun back in. :P

Size change = mass shifting. It's a thing that happens in this franchise.

Missing arm = nope. Just his dino kibble turned his arm into his tail lance, like BW Megatron. We just never saw him take his lance off in the film.

Slumber = He wanted to honour them and help them protect Merlin. So no, he didn't wake them up.


Optimus = Optimus came back and betrayed them. So yes, he saw that as a betrayal and now tried to kill him. Just like Grimlock fough against him, then with him. People can easily be fighting with someone and then a few years later, fight against them because they see them as betraying them. Especially when Prime turned up and killed knights.
Re: Transformers: The Last Knight Character Tournament On Facebook Live (1912153)
Posted by Kurona on September 21st, 2017 @ 6:48am CDT
Mass Shifting is something the live-action movies in particular take great pains to avoid, though. That's why the Dinobots are so big in the first place; so as to make it 'feasible' that Optimus and the rest of his team could ride them.

I'd personally say screw that and just roll with the overall silliness of the franchise, but hey, what you gonna do.
Re: Transformers: The Last Knight Character Tournament On Facebook Live (1912155)
Posted by Insurgent on September 21st, 2017 @ 6:52am CDT
AOE destroyed that though with Evasion Mode optimus. Same robot height but flat nose. And Lockdown. Car alt mode, robot mode same height as Optimus. Sure there were some other things the movies weer avoiding that AOE went and did. I remember coming out of the film thinking "Well, all the rules they were trying to avoid, they've just thrown out the window."
Re: Transformers: The Last Knight Character Tournament On Facebook Live (1912158)
Posted by Sabrblade on September 21st, 2017 @ 7:16am CDT
TLK completely forgot that AOE strongly implied the Dinobots and Optimus to have been knights, not only ignoring that notion almost entirely but also treating the twelve Guardian Knights as a completely separate organization unaffiliated with the Dinobots.

Pretty much, yep. :-P

It's not like I'm saying it makes perfect sense or anything; heck, it's hardly based on anything aside from a few superficial design similarities and my own sense of fun. I can't speak for Insurgent necessarily, but I'm not proposing a genuine theory, more like having some fun with a very tenuous character connection.

Deadput wrote:Not only does this not make sense its impossible in canon.
Many things are impossible in canon, including but not limited to:

    - Bumblebee being unable to speak despite having his voicebox repaired in the first movie (and then subsequently being able to speak later in the film despite having earlier ripped his own voicebox out)
    - Starscream's head turning up, intact, 530 miles from the site of his death-by-exploding-head
    - The Transformers being created by Quintessa as opposed to the work of the Allspark Cube
    - Barricade being alive
And that's just in this movie alone. I think, in light of all this, that we can make some allowances for having a bit of fun. :D

Oh I assure you my tongue is firmly in cheek. I'm just in a daft mood and want some fun. The initial post was a 'Wouldn't it be fun if' theory, not a full on serious theory. Red Knight not forming Dragonstorm was the only super serious part of my post. As I said, folks have been taking this stuff far too seriously lately.


The fact my rambling ends with Strafe going off to Jurrasic Park should be a giveaway. Hahaha. Anyway, I've made a thread for such sillyness.


Barricade being alive is not an issue. We saw his eyes and feet explode in DOTM, but never saw him die. And his eyes getting shot out makes sense for why now he has 4 eyes. Backup eyes!


Starscream's head turning up miles away isn't an issue. It's how it got fixed. We saw scrap is being scavanged, it's not unreasonable to assume someone recovered it and took it away, and Daytrader aquired it from that person. After all, Sentinel and Megatron's heads were recovered.


Lockdown made comments about the allspark thing. He asked Prime "You think you were born? You were bult! And your creator wants you back."

I just assume Quintessa used the Allspark to create Cybertron and give birth to Transformers. But in the eons since, Quintessa was lost to legend, but the Allspark remaind as that was a physical object and the Transformers started believing they were just born of the Allspark.

And now the Allspark is gone, Quintessa can't rebuild Cybertron properly, which is why it looks like melted cheese stretched between too much toast.

Barricade's always had four eyes, but it could explain why he has two blue eyes in TLK besides being a police light bar homage. Looking at that scene Barricade only gets shot twice so maybe he was only half blind and still had two optics left.

Thanks to an Instagram post by Josh Nizzi, we have some new concept art from Transformers: The Last Knight to share with you! The new art focuses on the design changes made to the Dreads from Dark of the Moon so that they become newer characters for The Last Knight. While only 2 of the 3 designs would make it into the movie (and even then slightly more tweaked), all 3 were given some slight redesigns and recolorings, with each sporting new warpaint. Nizzi had a simple description for the characters:

Anarchist Dreads don't care about your society. #transformersthelastknight

When I saw early shots of Barricade with the "Protect and Serve" knuckles and logos instead of "Punish and Enslave" I got kinda confused and thought he might be Prowl or Bluestreak until I saw the closeup with the Decepticon badge.

For the dreads, they look cool however:
1. They look like District 9 metal aliens, totally not like Transformers
2. They were terribly represented in The Last Knight

As for the 5K, ultra blu 3d ray edition of The Last Knight, who actually wants that?
I'm getting the stripped down skinny simplistic basic blu ray version.
This movie doesn't deserve any more money from me than the bare minimum.
What a horrible movie, I find it worse than Revenge of the Fallen, designs aren't Transformers.
No cool scenes whatsoever. Boring as sh*t England. No Decepticons, No Megatron, over the top
"look what we can do, we can also do Gravity guys!" Not a gawd damned original thought in the
entire movie. Hot Rod was sh*t. Drift, Crosshairs & Hound didn't do a damn thing.
...... movie still makes me mad :(

I just want to come back to this because it's probably one of the (many) things that makes me the most mad out of the entire movie. RANT INCOMING, in case you couldn't tell, and I apologize in advance. So when Hound stands up to the Decepticons in the junkyard, he more-or-less explodes. An explosion goes off on or in him, and engulfs him entirely.

...And then we cut away. To a totally different scene. And Hound just straight-up doesn't appear in the movie for like 45 minutes. I honestly thought they'd killed him off without so much as a backward glance, and that made me especially mad because Hound was literally the one character I'd found entertaining from the last movie.

And then when he comes back? There's no fanfare, no "Hound oh my god you're alive we're so happy to have you back you fat ballerina". He's just... there. In a random shot, in the middle of a random scene. They're looking up at Cybertron in Earth's atmosphere and excuse me if I paraphrase a bit, but it goes something like: Drift says "hey look at that thing", Hound goes "I think that's Cybertron", Crosshairs is like "yep it is", and then my friend and I watching the thing take nearly five seconds to process that hey I guess Hound is back now that's cool.

And that's when my anger goes from frustration at the (narratively-somewhat-understandable) death of the only character I liked, to pure rage at the sheer incompetence of the people making this movie. You do not show a character exploding and then have them not appear for upwards of half an hour before randomly having them show back up without so much as an acknowledgement of their absence. This is not high-level stuff. This is basic storytelling. Ugh I thought I was over this movie but I clearly am not.

...And hopefully that's out of my system. Again. Gawd this movie made me so mad (and apparently still does); at least the toys are good :D .

If the movie i so bad and makes you that mad, why even buy it at all? All you're doing is telling the sales people that you approve of the movie enough to buy it an own it after seeing it. Which means you like it. Which means make more like this.

This is very true, and truth be told I'm probably not gonna buy a copy myself, even though I own all the others and my "catch 'em all" impulse is kicking in something fierce :P . I am a little tempted to get a copy so I can watch it again with the same friend and see if we both hate it as much with a bottle of alcohol by our sides (it's fine I'm in Australia it's legal 'cause we're tougher down here), but I suppose I can always pirate it borrow someone else's legally owned copy for that.

I enjoy the other movies and own them. Always have a good time watching. I won't be buying this. Just like i don't own x men origins or the phantom menace. When it pops up on netflix, I'll watch the first half hour again. The part i actually liked.

Thanks to alerts from Seibertronian Soundwave-Superior and Scottimus Prime Toy Hunter, we have several news to share with you regarding Transformers: The Last Knight.

The first bit of news to mention is that Transformers: The Last Knight is available on DVD and BluRay today at retail, as shown by images taken by Scottimus Prime below.

The second piece of news, and one that is very interesting, is that the Target exclusive DVD release of The Last Knight includes the Machinima Combiner Wars Series! This is quite the unexpected surprise, though fans of the Machinima Combiner Wars series will enjoy the news that the series is making it to DVD in some fashion. You can find the whole article HERE.

Check out the images below, along with the official Transformers Advertisement email for the release!

Some very cool news for Transformers fans today! Not only is Michael Bay‘s Transformers: The Last Knight now available on Blu-ray and DVD, one special bonus feature is going to include an excellent animated series. The catch is that it’s only going to appear in one particular place.

Through a deal with Hasbro, Paramount, and Target, Machinima’s Transformers: Combiner Wars animated series, which garnered more than 125 million views worldwide when it was released on go90 last year, will be available as an extra feature on the bonus disc for Transformers: The Last Knight DVDs sold at Target, available now.

The bonus feature is part of the lead-up to the launch of the second part of the Combiner Wars saga, Transformers: Titans Return, which debuts on November 14th and welcomes Peter Cullen, Wil Wheaton, Judd Nelson, and others to the voice talent.
