Transformers Lost Age Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime

Posted on 07-08-2014 at 05:13 PM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
reduced-galery_image_9121_13329 An interesting piece of news was just dropped to us by friend and sponsor TFsource: it looks like a slightly retooled Lost Age (Age of Extinction) Optimus Prime leader class mold is coming this November. Details are still a little unclear about this retooled leader class figure from Takara, which you can see here in our Resources section for reference, but here's what we know so far provided by TFsource while we wait for more information to drop.

This Japan version of Optimus Prime features an updated head sculpt, and remolded body parts, as well as the face mask can be removed easily. There are bonus weapons, and the color is not black as shown but features metallic paint apps and/or chromed parts and attention to detail. It is assumed to be the regular Optimus Color scheme. Note: Details are subject to change, updated images to come.

You can currently preorder the Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime from TFsource; we'll be sure to update you as more of our sponsors carry this item.

Let us know what you think after the break!

Transformers Age of Extinction and director Michael Bay hit key milestones

Posted on 07-08-2014 at 03:07 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
MB-on-Dolly A double-whammy of news comes to us with regards to the performance of Transformers Age of Extinction. There is a lot of excited buzz over both the movie and director Michael Bay hitting some key milestones.

Transformers: Age of Extinction, it has been reported, has overtaken James Cameron's Avatar to become the biggest grossing movie in China, ever! This figure is slightly disputed - some sources claim the milestone was hit on Sunday, while the tally others are keeping suggests the movie came close but has not quite surpassed Avatar at that time. In either case, it is an incredible achievement for the fourth live-action big screen outing of the Transformers! Credit for this news item goes to Hollywood Reporter.

Transformers: Age of Extinction now the highest grossing movie ever in China


Transformers: Age of Extinction continues to perform strongly at the US box office and has earned an impressive $180,166,140 as of July 7th, 2014. Box Office Mojo also reports that international takings add up to $412,000,000, with more than half of that figure coming from China. As you might see from their chart, though, some figures have not yet been updated for the past weekend, and crucially some of the European opening weekends, such as the UK, are not yet represented. Of note is that Deadline reports Transformers: Age of Extinction has the third greatest opening in Korea, but that the movie there is performing slightly less strongly than Transformers: Dark of the Moon.


Last but by no means least, Transformers: Age of Extinction marks an important milestone in the career of its director Michael Bay. The film's gross over the weekend has seen Michael Bay overtake Robert Zemeckis to become the second highest grossing director of all time, right behind Transformers live action movie series executive producer Steven Speilberg. Check out the full announcement on Michael Bay's official website.

Congratulations from all of us here at TFW2005 to Michael Bay and the crew who made Transformers: Age of Extinction possible!

Lorenzo Di Bonaventura Replies To The Critics, Talks About The Plot Elements Of Transformers 4

Posted on 07-06-2014 at 11:47 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Lorenzo-di-Bonaventura-Transformers-Age-Extinction Transformers: Age of Extinction producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke to the press recently, regarding the negative critical reception for the movie and also to hint what we might get to see in the upcoming Transformers Live Action Movie Sequels.

"There's a combination of factors" said Mr. Bonaventura. "Number one, critics do not understand this kind of movie. They just donít understand, they donít get why people like this kind of movie. Theyíre evaluating a movie like this, that is meant for mass entertainment on a really epic scale, as though itís a 1970ís Martin Scorsese movie."

"I kind of figure enough critics donít see these movies with the audience, is my suspicion. Because if theyíre with the audience, they cant help but be affected by what theyíre hearing and reacting to."

The producer also talked about the plot elements from the 4th Michael Bay Transformers Movie, how they came to be and how they will affect the future movies. Considering the nature of the content, we are keeping them away from the front page due to the spoilers they contain.

You can read them at Collider, Inquisitr and IGN.
