News Roundup: "Age of Extinction", Scrap Metal Transformers and Overlord!

in News

For those who enjoy the Kabaya "Transformers" model kits, a new kit has been announced (via several venues): Overlord! No telling if it is the same size as the Fortress Maximus kit (which is larger than a Deluxe Class figure). I'm personally quite excited!

Filming of "Transformers Age of Extinction" continues to dazzle Chicago residents (or give them headaches) as the "mother of all bombs" is set to go off before the production closes in that city. - Via The Chicago Tribune

Michael Bay has released a new photo of some of the human cast of "Age of Extinction". Featuring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor, the accompanying interview indicates "Age" will be a "standalone" story. - Via Digital Spy

In his Construct-Bots from he's faster and better than ever! Check out my first Construct-Bots review of Ironhide!
