With just over two months to go until the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction (AKA: Trans4mers), it strikes us to think just how much we don’t know about the upcoming sequel to 2007′s Transformers. But now it looks like the production is trying to close that knowledge gap by promoting the heck out of the film, which is both a continuation of the Transformers saga from the previous three films, and a launching pad for a brand new trilogy of films with a new cast, new story line and everything. So what’s in store? Franchise filmmaker and originator of the Bay-hem aesthetic, Michael Bay, recently shared some thoughts… (more…)

Entertainment Tonight has posted a teaser for Michael Bay‘s latest Transformers: Age of Extinction online. It’s hard to tell which is more annoying, the short length, or all that ET over-talk. Don’t you just love it when you can tell that the person talking has no clue what the hell they are talking about and faking the hell out of being excited about it. (more…)

Running through this Thursday at New York City’s massive Javits Center, the 2014 Toy Fair is nothing short of nirvana for anyone who spends their days dreaming of action figures and other wonderful playthings. The annual event is the definitive gathering spot for industry execs, retailers, journalists and bloggers to learn about everything new in the world of toys.  On Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit Toy Fair and check out what the major retailers — with the notable exception of Mattel and Lego, who never responded to our press requests, snobs — would be rolling out for the rest of this year and beyond. From the jaw-dropping to the unbelievably goofy, here’s my rundown of the best and worst that this year’s event had to offer. (more…)

Me Grimlock, Have Spy Pic of Dinobots From ‘Trans4mers’

- 01-08-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

dinobots

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Michael Bay‘s decision to include the Dinobots in the upcoming Transformer: Age of Extinction (AKA: Trans4formers) is a pretty brazen. After all, things that make sense in a cartoon, like creating advanced transforming robots based on dinosaur remains right down to the walnut-sized brains, defy common logic when you’re making a live-action movie. (But on the other hand, if you just noted that this is a Michael Bay movie and logic need not apply, fair enough.) Still, I’ll I bet you’re dying to know what the Dinobots are going to look like, aren’t you? Excellent! Because we have another sneaky spy pic for you… (more…)

Michael Bay has taken to the Internet to bring order to a troubled universe. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t gotten a wink of sleep since finding out that Bay had apologized for making the first three Transformers films so “Goofy,” it was like nothing made sense any more. Bay must have heard about my tormented night terrors and decided to do something. (more…)

Megatron Fig Comes With Purchase of Shoes (Or Vice Versa)

When you think of people who possess a deep need for high quality cross trainers and cleats to aid them in their pursuit of physical excellence, naturally, you think of toy collectors. Filled with competitive fire, these warriors toe the temp-carpet of a show floor, clad in sweat pants to allow them the balletic grace and movement that the hunt requires as they juke past and leap over the competition to attain the latest con exclusive for their collections.

These people are warriors, but they now find themselves faced with a great dilemma — they can possess the freshly announced limited edition Megatron figure, but they must do so without the snazzy footwear that accompanies said figure. (more…)
