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…)


There’s some new shots coming out of Micheal Bay’s Transformers 4 production that just started shooting. We get another look at Drift, the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse from yesterday and over there, on the back of that truck, is that Bumblebee sporting a brand new look and paint scheme? What’s that rusty old tractor-trailer truck, is that Optimus Prime before his makeover? Take a look at the pictures below.

That’s certainly a different look than the slick new Optimus Prime look Bay tweeted out yesterday. The leader of the Autobots should look the part.


What do you think about Bumblebee’s new look? Is Bay trying to make Bumblebee look like a bad-ass? Could that just be a new disguise for Bumblebee, something to help him get a closer look at some new Decepticon shenanigans? I’ve always liked that Bumblebee looked kinda wimpy next to the other Autobots and Decepticons, but when he fought he showed his true heroically kick-ass self.

Nerds everywhere can rejoice — the following Autobot-on-Decepticon violence has nothing to do with Michael Bay.

A direct sequel to 2010’s warmly welcomed War of Cybertron, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is the transformers game people have been waiting for.

Obviously with “fall” is in the title you know no good is in store for our Autobot friends. However, it’s disco fever for the Dinobots.

Exclusively from Kotaku, the following gameplay footage shows off the games melee style combat with Grimlock, leader of the Dinobots. Featuring commentary by creative director Matt Tieger, you can experience all the joy for yourself in the player below:

Getting to beat the motor oil out of insecticons with one of the 80’s most hardcore transformers is w00t worthy. Seriously, I don’t care how good the rest of the game is. Being able to play the game as Grimlock is reason enough to buy.

Fall of Cybertron takes fans through the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and the Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their storied exodus from home.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, an Activision and High Moon Studios video game, will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 August 28th.

New Transformers Dark of the Moon TV Spot

Micheal Bay and the Transformers are back and they’re definitely “more then meets the eye” in this new TV spot for Transformers: Dark of the Moon.  Called “Always Feared” (New Enemy) this gives everyone a brief treat with new footage, highlighting the Decepticon villains currently filling toy stores everywhere.

Let’s check it out and hear your thoughts fleshy people of Earth.

This is shaping up to be quite the movie that Bay has put together. More explosions, cameos as far as the eye can see and no Megan Fox in sight. It’s finally a perfect movie for the whole family to enjoy. An overstatement for sure, but I think we all really want this to be the film the first one wasn’t.

Here’s the Synopsis:

The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime “Transformers” character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon, directed by Michael Bay, is set to be released on June 29th in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters everywhere.

Voulez-vous regarder une caravane en montrant des Autooestres contre Decepticons en Francais?

For those of you that don’t speak French, what I said above means “Would you like to see a trailer showing Autobots versus Decepticons in French?”

Because, I don’t know about you, but that’s what I’ve been looking forward to every since the Transformers: Dark of the Moon trailer premiered! And while this trailer doesn’t really showcase any new action, we do get glimpses at two characters previously unseen: John Malkovich (playing businessman Bruce Brazos) and Patrick Dempsey (playing race-car driver Dylan).

Is it the greatest one minute trailer that you’ll ever see? No. But you should still check out the trailer embedded below, as any one that has Optimus Prime speaking French is aces in my book!

Michael Bay Gives Transformers 3 Spoilers


Thanks to the magazine Empire, we now have some tantalizing details based on the upcoming Michael Bay movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Now, I warn you, below the jump are what could be considered minor and major spoilers for the movie (including info on that new mustached transformer up above, called Sentinel Prime). So if you want to go into the movie completely naive, do not click below the jump.

So, thanks to thedailyblam, here are what Bay had to say about the third Transformers movie.

  • There will be no sand.
  • There will be no dorky humor (“We wanted to make the movie much more serious, more adult.”)
  • When a robot dies, it will actually die. And that death will be shown onscreen.
  • The robots will be given more ‘weight’ in the story (“They were missed in movie two. We’ve given them a strong back-story and pathos.”)
  • Sentinel Prime is “A big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime”.
  • The Ferrari is a Decepticon nicknamed ‘Dreadbox’.
  • Starscream and Shockwave will have new companions. “The scale on one of them is jaw dropping” – “It will be ‘what the Hell was that thing?”
  • The Apollo 11 ‘incident’ show in the teaser is a big government secret.
  • There will be no army. Chicago is left in the hands of the Autobots (but some heroes sneak in through the back-door so to speak).
  • The human gliders are used because they slip under the Decepticons’ radar – as do humans – so they’ll be the people who can hammer it to the ‘Cons and create an opening for the Autobot

What do you think? Did Bay address your concerns from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?
