Hasbro Applies For A Go-Bots Movie And Toyline Trademark

Posted on 01-26-2015 at 02:43 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
The-Gobots Following the success of the first Michael Bay Live Action Transformers Movie back in 2007, Hasbro worked with movie studios around the world to bring your childhood toys into the big-screen. From toys such as G. I. Joe to board games like Battleship and Ouija, Hasbro is a live action movie machine with more live action movies such as Jem And The Holograms and Candyland down the pipeline.

It so happens that TFW2005 has stumbled upon another possible live action movie and a toyline from Hasbro. Once rivals of the Transformers Franchise (1984), Gobots became the property of Hasbro when they acquired Tonka; the original creators of Gobots.

On January 21st and on January 24th, Hasbro has applied for a new Go-Bots trademark (this is not a renewal) under "distribution of motion pictures, ongoing television programs" and "Toys, games and playthings, namely, toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith".

You can check out the Trademark documents from the United States Patent & Trademark Office here and here.

Peter Cullen Says Transformers 5 & 6 Might Be Less Dark

Posted on 01-10-2015 at 02:10 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
PeterCullenTransformersAgeExtinctionPremieres33N0eHYHtQMl The iconic voice of Optimus Prime, the legendary voice actor Peter Cullen attended SacAnime 2015 and answered fan questions.

He stated that Transformers 5 and 6 to might be less darker in tone than the previous movies and will go back to its roots.

"There is a sense that Transformers movies are going into a darker area" stated Mr. Cullen. "I think I brought the concern to the movie studio and certainly to the writers. Perhaps…Transformers 5 and 6 movies will go back more to its roots. There was an occasion where one line [in Transformers: Age Of Extinction] which Optimus Prime had, I did not want to say. It was my gut instinct and certainly my commitment to the character… not to say the line. But I was told to say. You can’t fight the big boys. I think you all know what that line was."

Visual Effects Supervisor Scott Farrar Explains What It's Like To Work On A Transformers Movie

Posted on 01-10-2015 at 12:58 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
scottfarrar_2 Animation World Network had a chat with Scott Farrar; Visual Effects Supervisor & Second Unit Director for the Transformers Live Action Movies by Director Michael Bay.

Mr. Farrar states:
"When I got there [Iceland], we had this whole setup of how the little dinosaur is going to run over and get the fish and run from the waterfall…there’s this whole big play with all these other dinosaurs out next to the stream bed. So we shot all that stuff. I’m looking at all this… and I go by what Michael goes by. Where does the light look good? Wait a minute. Look at this landscape back here, look at the birds hovering, look at the shadows on the cliff side. Let’s shoot that! That’s what I do. I shoot basically what’s cool or what speaks to me at a location. Even in the aerials, I’m looking around and thinking, “Well this is not what I had in mind but oh, this looks pretty good.” That’s what you’ve got to do. Make these decisions all the time. Your mind has to be open to new ideas, not a prior conceived idea that locks you up."

TFW2005's AoE Slog (G1 Colors) Gallery

Posted on 01-05-2015 at 10:06 AM by Tony_Bacala under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
G1-Slog-13 The SDCC 2014 Dinobots set was a mix of new and old, giving us the Age of Extinction Dinobots in G1 colors along with a kick ass pop-up-book like Ark. There was only one problem, we only got 4 of the 5 original Dinobots. Not soon after, they announced that the 5th member of the team, Slog (aka Sludge) would be getting a matching paint job and be released separately through Amazon. He went up for pre-order pretty soon after that announcement, and he is now finally shipping 5 months later.

We've done up a gallery of Slog in action along with his SDCC brothers. Read on to check some key shots; you can view the entire gallery here: TFW2005's Age of Extinction G1 Slog Gallery

If you'd like to complete your set, you can grab your own over at Amazon.com - they still have some in stock: Transformers Generation 1 Voyager Class Slog Action Figure.

Posted on 01-05-2015 at 01:57 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Hound It seems to be a tradition now, any new Transformers movie is followed by a series of nominations for the Golden Raspberry Awards, aka the Razzies. Movieweb reports that Transformers Age of Extinction has been nominated in several categories, including Worst Picture, Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Combo (for which it says "any two humans / robots"), Worst Director, and surprisingly, Kelsey Grammer gets a nomination for Worst Supporting Actor. Sophia Myles rounds off the list with a nomination for Worst Supporting Actress.

Do you feel these nominations are justified? Do you feel a strong sense of deja vu toward the grand majority of these nominations? Share your thoughts in the discussion thread.
