Transformers Interviews and Articles

In 2004 an auction appeared on eBay (Item Number 5919935901) for PVC Unicron with a price of $2000 (USD). The seller described the item as an unreleased product and when asked on the 4th September 2004 by the eBay user "Chris" whether the figure was from Generation One, a Custom figure or one of the unreleased Super Hybred Models (which it isn't) he was told:

"Nobody did not make it "Custom".Only could make "Company" for sell. Because make prtotype cost,spend made time and made cost was not free.It is a cancelled toys.Do you understand? It is easy!"

Not exactly the clearest of descriptions from the seller, but he basically meant "No it's not a custom item, it was made for a company to sell who cancelled the item.

Currently we do not have images from that auction, just our notes :(

However in 2008 a grey "prototype" was posted by a seller who is well known for selling testshots, hardcopies, prize items but also "lunchtime specials". In that auction, the seller claimed that the figure was a prototype from the 1980s and had it for sale for what worked out at $5000 (again USD).

In September 2013 a painted version was listed on Yahoo Japan for 10,000yen (roughly $1000 USD). The auction ended on the 13th September with no bidders. The seller was the same person who was trying to sell the grey prototype in 2008. This time the description was given as:

2000年前後の特大30cmサイズのユニクロンの試作品になります。未発売に終わった幻の品です。SCFロディマスコンボイは付属しません。

This roughly translates as
"It is a 30cm prototype of Unicron form around 2000. The item was cancelled before it would have been released. SCF Rodimus Convoy is not included in the auction"

So at this point the Unicron is being described as a unreleased SCF figure which is possible considering the design and articulation it has, though we do not have any proof of it being a legitimate TakaraTomy product, whether it was created to be a One-day licensed Winter Wonderfest garage kit, or whether it was a planned unlicensed kit.

Either way it's a pretty cool piece and we're glad that after 5 years additional images appeared.

You can view the images on our Facebook page where we will be hosting the images exclusively for a little while before creating a gallery here.

Transformers Movie News

With just 3 weeks for Transformers: Age Of Extinction principle photography left, lead actor Mark Wahlberg has been interviewed by MTV where he discusses his Children's appearance in the film as well as making a brief mention to the Dinobots.

"My kids just did a cameo, just scared people in the street looking up, but they did a great job. I was so nervous because Michael doesn't have time for bad performances," he said. "You have to understand; you're shooting a $300 million movie. You've got a lot going on. He's got five, six takes. If you ain't got it, you're done. I didn't want to see my kids get clipped. They were excited about, but they started to get mad at me because I'm trying to over-direct them. It went great."



Regarding the Dinobots, when they were bought up his response was the following:

"You can't say that, dude. Did you leak it? Did you leak it? You leaked it," he said. "Somebody leaked it, dude. Somebody was on the set leaked it, and it is not OK. It's not cool."



You can watch the video of the interview at MTV.

Thanks.

Transformers Movie News

Update: It has now been confirmed that the image if from a Cast and Crew party where a special 10-minute preview from the film was shown. See the information after the image for the latest update.

Instagram user Ronnie Lugo has posted an image from what appears to be a preview screening of something related to Transformers 4 along with the text "#transformers4 i bet you wish you could be here!".  Speculation of what this could be will no doubt run until Ronnie posts more information, though at the moment an early preview of a teaser trailer is the most popular choice.

Transformers 4 Preview

Update: Audarshia Townsend has confirmed, over on her blog, that the image was taken from a Cast and Crew party for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction.


we were treated to a 10-minute sneak preview reel—with a brief introduction by Michael Bay. It showed many Chicago landmarks, including The Bean, Chinatown and Uptown Theater. I won't be a spoiler by telling you which landmark gets destroyed, but there were definitely many shrill cries in the audience when it happened.

Transformers Convention News

A personal shout-out from Simon Furman:

Okay, so, after my Bedford outing, my next port of call could be the Bewdley Book Week in (you guessed it) Bewdley (Worcs, near Kidderminster). At the moment, I’m down to do a talk on the Friday night (13th September), but honestly, right now, it’s looking a touch doubtful. Not enough bums on seats at this moment in time. If there’s enough of you out there who want to part with a fiver to hear me talk about the comics biz, my part in it, and the current wonder that is Transformers Regeneration One, then sign up soon. Otherwise, regretfully, I’ll have to pull out. Nothing worse for the old ego than talking to five people in a room built for much more. Oh, as an added incentive, there’s a book signingright after. I’ll have copies of both Transformers: Regeneration One trades (vols 1 & 2) to sign/dedicate according to your wishes. We’ll kind of look at numbers again on Monday and make a decision then, so if you want to come along sign up here, soon, and please spread the word via whatever social media networking options at your fingertips. Fingers crossed, I’ll see you there!
