Toy News: Official photos of Takara Tomy "Transformers Movie 10th Anniversary" figures

2017 is the 10th Anniversary of the first live action Transformers film. To celebrate this Takara Tomy is releasing a small set of figures that celebrate characters across the four movies released over the years. Each is a redeco of pre-existing sculpts and in some cases there are new accessories or mini-figures included. Here's a rundown with links to my reviews of the original figures:

MB-01 Optimus Prime
A redeco of Evasion Mode Optimus Prime with a G1 inspired "worn" look.

MB-02 Bumblebee

Movie News: Michael Bay responds to criticism about Nazi flags on "The Last Knight" set

Several days ago news broke that one scene in the upcoming "The Last Knight" film will feature Nazi flags. While this in itself is not too unusual for Hollywood what was surprising is that the flags were hung at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, where Winston Churchill himself was born! Many veterans spoke out against this, however the home is actually maintained and occupied by a distant relative of Churchill, Jamie Spencer-Churchill, 12th Duke of Marlborough.

Movie News: On Set Photos of "The Last Knight" Barricade

Earlier this month several Transformers web sites were invited to visit the set of "The Last Knight", the fifth film in the live action "Transformers" movie series. We spent most of the day on set visiting one area after another. Just as we were about to leave, we were in for one last surprise: an appearance of the "Barricade" Ford Mustang! This heavily modified vehicle represents the Decepticon in his vehicle form. Check out these photos I was able to snap before we left the set!

Movie News: "The Last Knight" Hot Rod revealed

In a surprise late night post, The Official Transformers Movie Facebook Page has posted a CG rendering of Hot Rod from "The Last Knight"! Described as a "brother in arms" of Bumblebee, this character resembles previous designs we've seen before with metal "wrapped" around curved parts overlapping on machinery. There's little hint of the G1 Hot Rod most people know aside from some slight similarities in the head design and red showing from the car mode panels.

Movie News: "The Last Knight" billboard in New York City

With "The Last Knight" less than a year away, the promotional campaign for the next live action Transformers film has begun to kick off in earnest. The latest? A billboard near New York City's Times Square! This giant piece of art shows Optimus Prime facing off against demon-like beings. In between them? An interesting flag with a symbol with a Decepticon symbol that looks a tad different than the ones we have seen in the past (though that may just be a design flourish). What does all this mean? Find out when the film opens on June 23, 2017!

Via Michael Bay Dot Com we now have our first look at Bumblebee's vehicle mode from "The Last Knight"! The new vehicle continues the tradition of having Bumblebee transform into a Camaro. This time out it's a custom built 2016 Camaro. The original post is embedded below.

Article: A Megatron by any other name

With the news that Megatron would be returning to the live action movie universe, there has been a lot of outcry about how this could be possible. I wondered this too and after some though here is my speculation on the nature of Galvatron and just how this could happen.
