The childlike wonder with which Mark Wahlberg delivers the declaration “GUYS, I THINK WE JUST FOUND A TRANSFORMER!” will go down in the annals of history as maybe one of the best line readings EVER. Despite having hated all of Michael Bay’s previous Transformersmotion pictures, my ticket for Terry Hoytes v. Robots is 100% sold (fuck Batman v. Superman — this is the really real cinematic showdown). Now there’s an international trailer (complete with Chinese (?) subtitles) to sell the remaining few of you who weren’t already down with this clash of titans. (more…)
“ME, GRIMLOCK, CAST IN TRANSFORMERS 4? WHY THEY NOT CAST ME IN TRANSFORMERS 1? GRIMLOCK WANT TO BE IN FIRST TRANSFORMERS MOVIE.”
Above’s an exclusive quote I got when asking my Grimlock toy how he felt about being passed over, repeatedly, only to now be rumored as appearing in Tranformers 4. Grimlock, if you’ll remember, did have an important and valuable role in 1986’s Transformers: The Movie, a film almost universally considered better than anything the Michael Bay‘s franchise has produced. Here’s a collection of the Dinobot’s “best” moments,
Can we just get a restored, re-release of this movie? kthnxbye
So what of Grimlock and the Dinobots – also the name of my Vince DiCola cover band – appearing in Transformers 4? It’s the latest rumor rounded up by JoBlo about the Bayformers fourquel. Their source has told them not only will the Dinobots appear, but at one point Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will ride them into battle. To which I say, don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep! I would pay good money to see this! Anyone would pay good money to see that! They’ve already given themselves away with such a bold-faced lie, because nothing, nothing as cool as Prime riding a Dinobot would happen in a Bayformers flick.
Other classic ‘bots rumored to appear are the Autobot Hound and the Decepticon leader, Galvatron, who’s little more than a “resurrected” Megatron. There’s also talk of a “samurai’ Transformer, named Drift, who was once a Decepticon but seeks to regain his honor by joining the Autobots.
Damn, no Wheelie.
I’ll say I’m happy to hear some news about the ROBOTS of this “robots in disguise” franchise, as they’re often overlooked for whatever stupid humans are cast. But, I don’t know if even the Dinobots are enough to get me excited about Transformers 4. What are you guys thinking?
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.
