Entertainment Tonight (ET) has aired Part 2 of their Transformers: Age Of Extinction Special and it's off to Hong Kong.
Again, the report seems to confirm few names from the movie, but this time they are humans:"However, setting up the many explosions, while also simultaneously dealing with distractions from onlookers, leaves the cast with plenty of downtime. When Mark Wahlberg wasn't giving Rocsi tips on how to throw football, he and Jack Reynor were up to no good playing pranks on Nicola Peltz.
"We got Wild Weave Wednesdays...when Mark and I rip out Nicola's weave every Wednesday," shared Reynor (Shane), who plays Peltz's (Tessa) boyfriend in the fourth installment of the Transformers live-action film series."
But it's Director Michael Bay who caught our attention, when he reveals a Plot Secret from the upcoming movie.
"The world has progressed/modernized to a point it can almost cannibalize and kill itself."Read Replies (0)

Earlier today, Takara-Tomy officially announced the winners of their Masterpiece Fan's Choice poll. The votes are in and counted, and Star Saber from Transformers Victory won with over 30% of the vote.
As suggested earlier today by Figure King's own poll, Transformers Armada Optimus Prime won second place, with 24% of the vote, and Super Ginrai from Chojin Masterforce took third, with a little over 18% of the vote. Dai Atlas and Super Fire Convoy, from Transformer Zone and Transformers Car Robots respectively, took the fourth and fifth places.
The other headline item is that Hisashi Yuki is leading on the Masterpiece Star Saber project, rather than the usual Masterpiece designer, Shogo Hasui - so the creation of Masterpiece Star Saber will not derail the other ongoing Masterpiece releases.
Takara-Tomy have uploaded the whole video where they announce the winners to their Youtube channel - check it out embedded below. Some designs are shown during the run of the video - please be aware these are the designs of the original Star Saber and not the new Masterpiece version!Read Replies (0)
