Age of Extinction has been nominated for an award for "Outstanding Models in any Motion Media Project" for Lockdown's impressive spacecraft, the Knightship.

Peter Cullen Says Transformers 5 & 6 Might Be Less Dark

Posted on 01-10-2015 at 01:10 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 01-09-2015 at 11:58 PM 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 09:06 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 12:57 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.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Becomes The Highest Grossing Movie Of 2014

Posted on 12-24-2014 at 02:04 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-Age-of-Extinction-Poster-Optimus-and-Grimlock Well, this comes as no surprise. With just few days left to finish Year 2014, Box-Office Mojo has announced that Transformers: Age Of Extinction is the Highest Grossing Movie Of 2014.

AOE achieved this with a worldwide gross of nearly $1.1 Billion. Second place winner is Guardians of the Galaxy which is closely followed by Maleficent.

Guardian has this to say:

"Transformers: Age of Extinction has been named the highest-grossing film of 2014, thanks largely to huge success in China.

The fourth instalment in Michael Bay’s divisive, sci-fi saga took $1.087bn (£690m) around the world. More than $300m came from China, where the film overtook Avatar in July to become the highest-grossing movie of all time. Bay shot Age of Extinction in Hong Kong and hired Chinese stars such as Li Bingbing for supporting roles, thereby helping to encourage local interest."


Director Michael Bay has also been announced as the "Producer Of The Year", following the success of Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Transformers Movie Advanced Stinger Clear Official Image

Posted on 12-24-2014 at 03:07 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
10550945_556147937821143_1463952002806367909_n Via Autobase Aichi, we have a clear image showing Takara-Tomy's AD-32 Stinger! This is presently the only planned Deluxe class Stinger - he's a redecoed version of the new Camaro Bumblebee, so his robot mode is spot on even though he's not a Pagani when he transforms. Check out the images and see what you think.

Mark Wahlberg committed to doing "a couple more" Transformers movies

Posted on 12-18-2014 at 05:41 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
250px-Cade Mark Wahlberg, who played the inventor Cade Yeager in this summer's Transformers: Age of Extinction, was talking to MTV and one of the things which he was asked concerned the future of the Transformers franchise. His response was as follows:

"Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more... you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon."

By all accounts it sounds like we might see Cade Yeager make a return for at least one, maybe two more Transformers movies going forward!

Check out the video clip where this was discussed after the break

Posted on 12-16-2014 at 05:45 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
Slash-with-AoE-Dinobots-Dinosaurs We've got a quartet of Transformers: Age of Extinction galleries to share with you tonight - to cap off a movie year and "the year of the Dinobots", we've got galleries of four of them to share with you!

Transformers: Age of Extinction brought the Dinobots to the big screen - and that meant a plethora of dinos in the toyline, including seven different Dinobots along the way. We've previously shared with you a look at Voyager Grimlock and Deluxe Slug, and now they are joined in our galleries by four more of their fellow Dinobots!

TFW2005 member Russian fan contributed the first of our two galleries tonight:

Age of Extinction Deluxe Scorn Gallery
Age of Extinction Deluxe Strafe Gallery

Seeing Russian fan's excellent work on these two, TFW's admin Sol Fury was inspired to dig into his toybox and so we also share with you a couple of his photoshoots:

Age of Extinction Deluxe Slash Gallery
Age of Extinction Voyager Slog Gallery


Check out the galleries of all four of these guys, and give some big thanks to Russian fan for their excellent work on their pics!

Bearbrick Optimus Prime Age of Extinction Version

Posted on 12-11-2014 at 04:09 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
CjbSi2s Here is something interesting - via Planet Iacon Facebook group, we have a look at an Age of Extinction themed redeco of the Bearbrick Optimus Prime figure. Bearbrick Prime transforms from a cute bear figure that looks a bit like a Lego minifig into a fully poseable robot! This version skews closer to the movie series look and is branded Age of Extinction, while the previous one was Generation 1 themed. Interestingly the English logo for Transformers Age of Extinction appears on the box, rather than the usual Japanese version of the logo.
