Close up of head:
Recently ten gold Transformers Leader Class Optimus Prime figures were given away at the Hong Kong Animation and Comic Show 2008 to the first ten people to spend HK$3000 or more. Since then four have been sold internationally from the same seller for varying prices with two more appearing on auction sites within the last few hours. eToysJapan has listed his fifth one on ebay at the moment with a starting price of $3000, with a 6th figure appearing on Yahoo! Auctions Hong Kong via seller ieolawse with a starting price of $1,639, the lowest price of this figure so far by $900.
So far numbers 85,86 and 24 have been confirmed. The Yahoo auction one appears to be 69, though it is hard to read. The one on Ebay at the moment is not known which number it is, but it should be number 24. If you own one of these figures, could you please get in touch with us and let us know which number you have.
This means that there should only be only four others left that were given away at the convention.
In an interview with the Reading Eagle, Transformers veteran voice actor, Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime, Ironhide and others in Generation One and Optimus Prime in the live action Transformers, talks about his work on Transformers over the years as well as his other projects.
In terms of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Peter comments that his voice recording sessions have already begun. "I worked with Michael a few weeks ago and we did some of the opening dialogue, the opening speech and then a couple of scenes with Shia LaBeouf. Shia wasn't there, of course. I just worked from the script.". When asked about the story to the second of three Transformers movies, Peter replied "They're very secretive about the story, I only know the lines I've read, and I'm not allowed to disclose any of those. But the amount of success that 'Transformers' had on a financial level is providing a lot more screen time for Optimus Prime. It's very expensive to do all these robot characters because of the 10,000 moving parts. Thankfully we were a hit, so there's 'Transformers 2' and maybe 'Transformers 3.' I think 'Transformers 2' is going to be an incredible, incredible picture. I can see the excitement in the faces of the people involved, and it generates quite a bit of excitement in me too."
Yahoo recently ran a Top Sci-Fi Movies of all time poll, which like many an online poll run nowadays, came back with some surprising answers. The top three films were listed as follows:
HollyScool.com report that "Injured SHIA LaBOEUF's robot-fighting TRANSFORMERS pal JOSH DUHAMEL insists the young actor is recovering well from hand surgery.
LaBeouf was hospitalised last month (Jul08) after a Hollywood car crash left him with a smashed hand. The accident stalled filming on the Transformers sequel, but co-star Duhamel, who is in constant contact with LaBeouf, insists his pal will be OK. The actor tells HollyScoop.com, "He is at his best. Shia is doing just fine. He's doing great."
E! Online have shot down the rumour started by StarMagazine, whose website has since gone offline, that Transformers leading-man Shia LaBeouf called up the producers of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen yesterday, to inform them that he may need to amputate one of his injured fingers as a result of the car accident in West Hollywood on July 27th. Slashfilm picked up on the story and began to spread around the internet. Shia's agent spoke with E! Online and said that it was a "completely fabricated story"ÔŅĹ
Chud.com are reporting that Megatron will reappear in the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen foilm with an alternate mode of a tank, replacing his alien jet fighter form from the first film.
There is no information on where this rumour started, so we're just listing this as a rumour at the moment. Director Michael Bay has stated that false information will be leaked during the production of the film. Is this part of the false information, or could it be that this is the true form of The Fallen, and that the previously "confirmed" Fallen character was in-fact the false truth?
In an interview with MTV,
IDW Editor-in-Chief Chris Mowry has revealed a little more regarding the five part Transformers: Destiny series that IDW will be releasing. The key points of the article are yet further confirmations that both Soundwave and Arcee will appear within the live action movie, as well as other fan-favourites, and that "The Fallen" will indeed be a character and not just a reference to the returning Decepticons.
"[We're going to] explore the background of The Fallen ‚ÄĒ the main villain of the
movie ‚ÄĒ as well as expand on the ‚ÄėReign of Starscream‚Äô story that we‚Äôre doing
and tie everything in to what this next movie is going to be,‚ÄĚ explained writer
Chris Mowry, who partners on the book with artist Alex Milne. ‚ÄúThe next movie
starts out with just tons of action and there‚Äôs obviously going to be a lot of
questions, so we‚Äôre hoping to answer some of those beforehand.‚ÄĚ
At the end of ‚ÄúTransformers,‚ÄĚ audiences were treated to a grand speech from Optimus Prime issuing the call for his off-world Autobots to head to Earth. We also saw Starscream blast into space after the defeat of his leader Megatron. So where did he go? Mowry‚Äôs ‚ÄúReign of Starscream‚ÄĚ miniseries ‚ÄĒ currently on shelves ‚ÄĒ answers that question and leads directly into ‚ÄúDestiny.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre definitely taking every character that we can from the sequel,‚ÄĚ said Mowry. ‚ÄúSo you‚Äôll see some Sector 7 involvement and how they developed into a new group that will be introduced. The same thing with some of the new characters, we‚Äôll explain how they get to Earth. Because like I said, [the sequel] starts out with this giant battle so people will be wondering ‚ÄėHey, where did that guy come from?‚Äô‚ÄĚ
While Mowry has yet to have direct contact with ‚ÄúTransformers: Revenge of the Fallen‚ÄĚ screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, he counts himself as one of the lucky few to have a complete script. That‚Äôs important to keep his story in continuity, Mowry stated, as well as to ensure he‚Äôs not stepping on the film‚Äôs plotlines. ‚ÄúWe had this really ambitious script done where there were a lot of fan-favorites in there. [But] some of them are going to be making an appearance in the second movie so they asked us not to use those, which is understandable.‚ÄĚ
Two of those fan-favorite characters are Soundwave and Arcee, both of whom find themselves recruited for the sequel. ‚Äú[Starscream]‚Äôs more of like a military guy. So in ‚ÄėDestiny‚Äô we‚Äôre going to see a lot more involvement with [the backgrounds of] Prime and Megatron, [as well as] Cybertron‚Äôs history and how that affects the present day. It all centers around the plot of the sequel which I obviously can‚Äôt get into. It‚Äôll be explained but you‚Äôll see a lot more expansion of their characters and their motivations and their destinies, if you will."
