Amazon have updated their product listing for the Transformers: Prime book from IDW that was mentioned a little while back with a breif synopsis which pretty much confirms that the series will be a prequel to the Transformers Movie showing Optimus Prime becoming the leader of the Autobots and leading his first campaigns..
"This all-new graphic novel adventure leads directly into the all new
Transformers: Prime animated series! In this epic first adventure,
battles across Cybertron have left Bumblebee and his fellow Autobots in
need of a new leader. But is there anyone who can step forward against
the threat of Megatron and the evil Decepticons?"
TFW2005 board member RAvenXL7 has posted some scans from the latest Previews Catalogue which is sent out by Diamond Distribution. The scans include some new images of various upcoming Transformers figures including:
War For Cybertron Bumblebee
War For Cybertron Optimus Prime
War For Cybertron Megatron
Darkmount (originally to be called Straxus)
Power Core Combiners
Sledge with Throttler
Leadfoot with Pinpoint
Icepick with Chainclaw
Double Clutch with Rallybots
Mudslinger with Constructicons
Night Attack Ratchet
Battles Blades Optimus Prime
TFW2005 report that Space Coast, Florida have updated their Twitter
account with the following tweet regarding Transformers 3 "Transformers 3 to film on Florida's Space Coast! Filming to begin
September 2010!". TFW then go on to report that the Brevard County Film Commissioner Bonnie King have told Central Florida on
Demand that the filming will last about 8 days in early September. She says
location scouts have visited the area for 2-3 days at a time, looking at
other areas to shoot. Those include Patrick Air Force Base, Space Coast
Regional Airport in Titusville, Merritt Island Airport, Lone Cabbage
Fish Camp in Cocoa, and a Cocoa beach house. Scouts also checked out
some swamps and went into the woods.
What does this? Is there a chance we could be seeing characters like Astrotrain, Blast-Off or Omega Supreme in the third movie? Or does it mean that TF3 is going to be a live action version of Megatron's Master Plan? Think about. We've been told that there will be more Humans, we have already seen "Autobots, go home" graffiti and now word that they will be filming on the Space Coast. Add that with the "returning to the core mythos" and it it starts to look more like a possible premise for a third film. Of course this is just speculation on my part but it is early days so its fun to start building possible plots from what we've seen so far. Why not drop by our message board with your thoughts, or drop us a message on Twitter
If people thought the UK election resulted in mixed signals it has nothing on the Skids and Muflaps possible appearance in Transformers 3. First it was reported that they were in, then Michael Bay came out stating that they were not back for the third film, and now
leftlanenews.com reports, with imags, that they are back in the third film!
"Sporting “Autobot” center caps on the wheels, these two vehicles
were captured doing some pre-production work before principal filming
starts in a few weeks. We think you are looking at Skidz (green) and
Skidz is looking much sportier than in Transformers: Revenge of the
Fallen, with new front and rear fascias, larger fenders, sportier wheels
and a big wing. Mudflap was previously based on the Chevy Traxx
concept, but for this installment, it appears both cars will be built
off the Chevy Spark.
General Motors will once again be the main vehicle supplier for the
latest Transformers movie, so expect to see several other GM-badged
vehicles, including a black and yellow Chevy Camaro as Bumblebee."
The blog TransformersLive
have collated information from Chicago Craigslist
which says that the principal photograph is due start soon. Acting Audtions report that a "pre-vis scene will shoot at the Majestic Star Casino in Gary, Indiana on April 12th, 2010. Filming will take place on industrial property owned by Majestic Star Casino at Buffington Harbor. The scene will be shot during daylight hours and will involve a crew of about 60 people. The set will be closed to the public. The movie crew will shoot a "rather simple scene" portraying vehicles approaching the industrial property. The scene is meant to take place in Ukraine. None of the principal stars of the movie, including John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, is expected to be on the set. No extras will be used.
Note: A 'pre-vis' scene refers 'previsualization' filming. The advantage of previsualization is that it allows directors to experiment with different staging and art direction options such as lighting, camera placement and movement, stage direction and editing - without having to incur the costs of actual full-blown production filming."
The website goes on to report that
"The Transformers 3 is now in production and auditions for principal actors are taking place. Director Michael Bay has signed on to direct his third Transformers picture. Pre-shoots start April, 2010. The filming locations are set for Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow and China. Principal photography will run from May 17, 2010 through July 1, 2010. Release Date: July 1st, 2011.
See the post titled Headshot and Resume Information regarding how to submit for acting roles."
Though un-official the same site also lists the following under story:
"Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox return as Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes in "The Transformers 3". A darker more introspective journey into the Transformers universe and their origins on Cybertron. Peter Cullen also returns as the voice of Optimus Prime. This 3rd installment in the series "won’t be as robot-heavy and there will be fewer explosions, as the film gets more into the robot character. The last time (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) you kind of met a few of the robots. In 'The Transformers 3' you’re gonna get a much cooler landscape" according to director Michael Bay. There is also preview footage of the possibility of Unicron, the planet eater, in this sequel."
