Transformers Toy NewsIn his latest blog TF writer Simon Furman talks a little about the events of Transformers (UK) Issue 9 as well as sharing some artwork from the issue

Remember that nice, happy ending the Transformers live-action movie delivered? Well, we’re about to throw that out of the window! ‘Twilight’s Last Gleaming pt1′ (of 5) delivers an entirely alternate take on the climactic scenes in which Megatron sought to claim the All Spark, only to be denied by Sam Witwicky. In the new UK continuity, things didn’t end quite so neatly, and in part 1 we look in on a world now ruled (in a large part) by Megatron and the Decepticons, with the few Autobots (and humans) still at large fighting for survival. Things are desperate indeed as, with Optimus Prime a helpless captive, Megatron begins to transform planet Earth into world where dark technology rules. Can the Autobots (and humans) stage a last, desperate fightback? Don’t count on it. Happy endings are in very short supply in the new Decepticon dominium. Part 1 of Twilight’s Last Gleaming is written by me with art by Simon Williams. Click on the thumbnail below for a glimpse of what’s to come. TF-UK #9 hits on February 28th.

Transformers Toy News

IESB recently interviewed G.I-Joe and Transformers producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura regarding both films, though primarily G.I-Joe. Here are some quotes.

When asked about Marlon Wayans playing Ripcord his reply was

Well, let's talk about Marlon for a second. A lot of people are fans of his from the comedic point of view obviously for all the right reasons, but what I think everybody forgets about is how damn good he was in Requiem for a Dream as an actor. And, when we were trying to figure out who would be the right element to make this combination work of Duke as the leader and Ripcord as the best friend who sorta gets Duke in trouble all the time and Duke has to bail him out all the time and have fun with him, we needed a guy who's gonna be funny and we needed a guy who was going to be a good actor. And we went to Marlon and said, "We'd love to talk to you." And he's a gigantic GI Joe fan and immediately asked, "is Cobra in it, is Destro in it?" I mean before he even got to read the script he was so much fun to talk to because he understood what it was. So he got it immediately, and when we did the test, you know, we all looked at each other and the studio and there isn't one person who didn't think it was a no-brainer. So, from our point of view, he's playing a military character who's got some real good quips but he's got to be good, he's got to be physical, and I mean Marlon is a strapping guy, he's got good size to him. So, I think the fans will feel, when they see him, that he is playing the solider that they anticipate anyone from the G.I. Joe group to be.

When asked how the search for the actor to play Destro is going, Lorenzo said things are getting close.

"Within the next two weeks, I will comfortably tell you that. We don't have a guy chosen, we have the list down to about 4 or 5. All of them are of the English, Irish, Scottish persuasion shall we say."

He also confirmed that Hawk should be cast within the next two weeks and that Zartan will also appear in the movie.

On a Transformers Movie 2 note, Lorenzo was wasked about the script and here is what he had to say.

"We're nowhere because of the strike, we won't know until we come back. We have a very fine outline and we know exactly where we want go with the movie but until this writers strike comes back, we'll find out exactly where we are. Michael is completely on top of every detail. He's designed a lot of great stuff already. He's got a lot of great sequences imagined but you know, he needs some writers to work with before he's ready to go, so I would say June 2nd is an unofficial start, it's the target date we'd like to go for but, you know, we've got to get some writers to help us."

You can read the interview in full here.

I want to thank Nelson for running such a good site! For the millions of viewers that logged on this year I want to thank you for the support. Transformers 2 will be coming soon. The new robots are really really unique and there are a lot of them this time. I WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE A GREAT HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR.

Your friend, Michael

That's the latest post by Michael Bay at both his blog and website. There's nothing really unexpected, more Transformers in Transformers 2 was obvious (they've already got the CGI models for the Autobots from the first film) and a bigger budget is expected.

Rumours have already started flying regarding the film, we really like the sound of one of them (which seems quiet plausible), but with a long time to go it will be interesting to see what fake information, and accurate information, is released.

Last Maximal of Cybertron Philippines has posted a small image, taken on his mobile phone, of a red Dropkick recoloured toy, as an Autobot, from a catelogue on Imageshack here.


Information posted on The Allspark points out ".. an unnamed red Autobot recolor of TFTM Dropkick. no huge Autobot logo in vehicle mode, just red all over with a silver grille, with an Autobot logo and some text on the driver's side door [and likely the passenger side's door as well]."

Transformers Toy News

Snakas has published another round-up of the information in this months hobby magazines that were released in Japan over the last few days. For those that can not understand Japanese, we have published a brief summary below

Figure King 119

There is an article discussing Trans-Scanning Optimus Prime, in particular it discusses how the gimmick works. A image of a prototype is included in the article.

There is a comparison between the original Sky Lynx figure and the upcoming re-issue. Snakas points out that some of the detail, especially on the interior and around the eyes show the the Encore edition have more detail.

Images were shown of Transformers Henkei (the Japanese Transformers Classics line) Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee. All of the figures were shown to be more cartoon accurate than the western release.

The four AllSpark figures will be released in Japan in February. Images are shown of the toys along with the AllSpark toy itself.

There is yet more confirmation that the Masterpiece Starscream USA edition figure, when release in Japan, will be switched back to the Japanese mold where the tail finds were a slightly different shape to their US release.

More information was included on the green Transformers Encore Emergency Ratchet as well as the Revoltech Starscream and Hot Rodimus.

Finally there is a note that more Star Wars Transformers figures will be released in Japan in 2008

Dengeki Hobby (Blitz Hobby) - Feb issue

Again more comparisons and images on the Encore Skylynx toy, though they are not as detailed as the Figure King article.

Dengeki also includes the images of Transformers Henkei Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream.

More images of the Transformers Movie scene figures are shown.

There is an article and more images on the e-Hobby black Ironhide as well as the Revoltech figures and Star Wars Transformers.

Japanese Transformers Movie Incinerator

Snakas notes that going by the images published within the two magazines, and comparing them to the recent eBay auctions for Transformers Movie Incinerator, it appears that the Japanese version of the toy will be a different colour. The Japanese figure is much closer to the the Ospreys that appeared within the live action Transformers Movie, not only in their colour scheme, but also in the number on the side of the helicopter.
