Congratulations to Paramount, which is finally in court on a $27 million lawsuit for failing to actually place a product from a product placement deal. Yeah. On one side is Paramount, the studio behind the Transformers franchise, and on the other side is a Chinese business who paid them to put even more logos in the…
Matthew Reinhart and Emiliano Santalucia have created what is easily the most impressively engineered pop-up book you’ll ever see. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the iconic Transformers toy line, it not only features pop-up paper versions of Autobots and Decepticons, but many of them also completely transform.
Is the Postman suddenly giving out marital advice? He is! He’s also offering parents tips about nerdy child psychology for some reason! But he still has time to discuss Rey’s parents, why comic movies only get the names right, and why the hell the hero named after a flying mammal doesn’t fly. He will also stop talking…
It’s a time of celebration for IDW’s Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye as it hits its 50th issue this week, especially for James Roberts. The fan-turned-comic writer has transformed Megatron from the evil leader of the Decepticons to a ‘bot trying to atone for his past, which is about to catch up with him...…
Another potential name for Felicity Jones’ Rogue One character hits the web. Anthony Mackie has high praise for Civil War. Robbie Amell is unsure how he’ll return to The Flash again. Agents of SHIELD teases a member of the Secret Warrior. Plus, new pictures from Batman v Superman, and what’s to come on iZombie.…
My second and final full day at my very first Toy Fair 2016 in New York City has come and gone, and already I miss it terribly. Nothing flipping through photos of Nerf guns, Pokemon plushies, Final Fantasy figures, Monster High dolls, Transformers, Marvel heroes and more can’t fix.
Can a winter of discontent last three years? Hasbro is hoping it’s a possibility: The company just announced that Transformers 5, 6, and 7 will drop in consecutive years.
Hey, remember Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark? The Spider-Man broadway show that someone somewhere thought was a great idea, before it turned out that no, oh God no it wasn’t? Well, the company behind it are heading to China for a new venture: a live-action Transformers attraction that sounds similarly atrocious.
Michael Bay’s Transformers movies are almost universally considered to be horrible, but even the haters can admit the cars that become the robots are stunning. And now, you can actually own two of the best.
We all have our own stories of getting the wrong toy for a birthday or the holidays. But there’s nothing worse than what happened to author Tobias Buckell. Nothing!
Last week I wrote about Woobots, the wooden robots that transform into wooden vehicles, currently the focus of a successful Kickstarter campaign. This week I play with them.
The Singularity is coming soon! Artificial intelligences will reinvent everything, and there will be unlimited rice pudding. Except, of course, that when we imagine artificial intelligences in fiction, they’re often not that smart. Case in point? These 10 ridiculously dumb artificial intelligences.
This is not a screenshot. It is not a piece of two dimensional fan art. This is a fan-modded Optimus Prime action figure. Seriously.
The future Transformers films will maintain one key element of the previous films. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may have cast a new superhero. You might have to wait a bit longer than usual to see new Game of Thrones. Plus, high-res images from Suicide Squad and The Force Awakens. To me, my Spoilers!
The Hasbro Cinematic Universe? There have been dumber ideas in Hollywood. GI Joe: Retaliation (a.k.a. the good one) and Jem director Jon M. Chu wants to make it happen with one big crossover flick, according to a recent interview.
Young people, right? They like young-people shit, like YouTube videos, Instagram selfies and crazy hair. If you hate young people but want to pander to them for some reason—like, if you have loathsome, foul-smelling stepchildren—you can always take them to see Jem and the Holograms.
Sentinel Prime, the Autobot head honcho before Optimus, usually transforms into a big ol’ Cybertronian truck when in vehicle mode: but not the new Sentinel. He turns into two vehicles: one of which is a big, weapon-packed space train to the cosmos.
Play features were all the rage with the Transformers toys when they first released—anything and everything to gets kids begging to buy the new mini-Transformer that transforms into something for an even bigger Transformer. Now one of those beloved action features is making a comeback in the next wave of Transfomers!
Yep, that’s right: more Transformers sequels are on the way. Stephen J. Davis of Hasbro noted during a Q&A that the company has recently planned out installments 5, 6, 7 and 8 for the franchise.
