Third Party upgrade provider "Fans Want It" have unveiled their latest offering as the FWI-3 Jet Power Upgrade Kit. The kit is a add-on for the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime figure. ROTF Prime will be able to use the armour to make him look like he is combined with Jetfire.
No word has been given on the price of the kit or an expected release date, however due to a peg being located on the back of the upgrade, it does appear as if Prime will be able to tow the parts along, meaning there is some "transformation" in the kit.
AsiaOne.com are reporting that Transformers: The Ride will open in Singapore on December the third.
Here is a copy of the announcement
Come 3 December, Universal Studios Singapore (USS) will launch the world's first theme park attraction based on Hasbro's iconic Transformers brand.
Planning for this ride had started even before Resorts World Sentosa was built. From conceptualisation to construction, the latest theme park ride of USS took over four years to complete.
This motion thrill ride will showcase the most advanced evolution of immersive theme park entertainment.
The attraction will feature 12 scenes, comprising sets blended seamlessly with hyper-realistic 3-D digital media and special effects to bring tactile realism to every moment.
A spokesperson from Resorts World Singapore told AsiaOne that the ride duration is approximately four minutes, and that the ride is currently in a testing phase where it is put through thousands of hours of test cycles.
In this latest ride at USS, guests will be transported onboard advanced motion-based ride vehicles into the Transformers universe, and partake in the ultimate 3D battle against the Decepticons right alongside the Autobots.
Enlisted as NEST recruits, guests are tasked to help the Autobots protect a remaining shard of the ALLSPARK – a powerful energy cube that gives life to the Transformers. As the Decepticons attack the facility in a bid to obtain the shard, guests will be introduced to a new Autobot – EVAC – created exclusively for the ride.
EVAC is a stealth transportation Autobot stationed on Earth designed to transport personnel and classified materials at hyper speeds. For the ride, park guests will board EVAC and zip through subway tunnels, down city streets and across rooftops, with the Decepticons hot on their heels.
Park guests, especially fans of Transformers, will be thrilled as they come face-to-face – and be transported – by an Autobot. This epic ride experience will allow guests the opportunity to truly "Ride The Movie".
Special year-end holiday packages for Universal Studios Singapore will be rolled out through the Resorts World Sentosa website and authorized travel agents.
Guests signing up for these special packages will receive a Transformers The Ride commemorative souvenir and express entry to the attraction. More details will be available at www.rwsentosa.com.
Transformers movie director Michael Bay will be in S'pore for launch party
Transformers The Ride will celebrate its world premier at an exclusive evening event on December 2.
Michael Bay, director and executive producer of the Transformers blockbuster movies who also served as the attraction's creative consultant, will be in attendance to help commemorate the occasion.
Mr. Michael Bay said: "I am very excited about the debut of this attraction at Universal Studios Singapore. Finally, Transformers fans will not only have the chance to watch the Autobots battle the Decepticons on screen; they will actually be part of the action."

I thought I would bring you another quick update on the current gross of the third live action Transformers movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon
. As of the 16th August 2011 the film had grossed $1,082,052,314
) making it the 5th highest grossing film of all time behind Avatar, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 and Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. The film needs to gross another $40 million in order to take the 4th spot which is unlikely to happen but is not impossible..
Transformers Dark of the Moon continues to perform extremely well at box office and has now grossed over $711 billion dollars. By Friday, BoxOfficeMojo were reporting that the film had grossed $711,746,758 dollars with a 60-40 split between non-US and US grosses. The domestic gross was only a estimate and the foreign figures are never up-to-date on that site so it's quite likely that the film is even closer to, or may have already passed the $725 million dollar mark. The film has passed the total gross for the first live action Transformers film of $709,709,780 but it still behind its sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which went on to gross $836,297,228 meaning that, all together, the franchise has taken $2,257,753,766 at a cost of $545,000,000
So Transformers Dark of the Moon has done pretty well, though not passing Revenge of the Fallen in the US on the opening week, it's done OK. Here's a few stats for you (thanks to BoxOfficeMojo)
Domestic (US) Alltime Rankings
11 - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - $402,111,870
24 - Transformers - $319,246,193
140 - Transformers: Dark of the Moon - $180,651,397
So that's $902,009,560.00 so far taken in the US for the Live Action Transformers franchise
25 - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - $836,600,000 (rounded)
43 - Transformes - $709,700.00 (rounded)
xx - Transformers: Dark of the Moon - $418,011,064
So that's $1,764,311,064 in total.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Transformers Dark of the Moon had a budget of $190 million dollars, and has taken $180 million, so it has another 10 million to go to break even domestically.
