2014 is a great year for Kelsey Grammer. And he sat down with Yahoo to talk about it. This is what he had to say about Transformers: Age Of Extinction…Grammer had to leave the Transformers set to film his Expendables role but said, “Michael Bay was cool about it.” Like Stallone, Bay was also cool about line changes, telling him at one point, “You’re Kelsey Grammer. You can do whatever you want.”
Grammer’s most physical action scene involved throwing a Chinese man out of a car. It was eventually cut, though Grammer explained that Bay isn’t entirely to blame. “It was very violent, and it looked very violent.… Apparently the Chinese government had some input on these things, and they just didn’t want to see a Chinese national get thrown out of the car [laughs] — and then subsequently run over.”
Grammer got a glimpse of the Bay method during the shooting of one action scene as Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor were given a shock to the system by the infamously precocious director. “They start running, and Michael did not let them know how big the explosions were going to be. He said to me, ‘Watch this! Look! They’re really terrified. Look how fast they’re running!’”

You may remember that back in last July, we reported
a new venture by Hasbro; where Shapeways (a company working with 3D printed material) would 3D print Fan Art based on Hasbro properties. Though it was initiated with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, our members speculated that in the future we will see Transformers as well.
Sure enough, thanks to an Email received by 2005 Boards Member chroma23, Hasbro confirms that the new project will expand into Transformers.
Future projects include:
Dungeons & Dragons
My Little Pony [already implemented]
Scrabble (to be sold in US and Canada only)

The Walmart exclusive Age of Extinction Legion Class figures have been sighted at US stores, thanks to sightings from oTFW2005.COM members ahchu and alkamist. These figures are available in single packs of Grimlock
, Optimus Prime
, Decepticon Stinger
, and Bumblebee
as well as a three-pack
of Stinger and Bumblebee packaged with a deluxe class Strafe
. These figures have also been sighted at Canadian Walmart stores, as Cybertron.CA member Gurrenken found a Stinger figure
Feel free to join in with our community as Transformers toys are reported in our Sightings forum
, which is arranged alphabetically by state. Canadian sightings can be found here
at our sister site, Cybertron.CA. Many Transformers collectors are very helpful and friendly with assisting each other finding figures and just hanging out together locally. One of the greatest assets of a hobby is finding cool people to share it with! Happy hunting!Read Replies (0)

Apple's iTunes website has updated with the brief, 3-page previews for both Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #32 and Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #2:
Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #32
SLAUGHTERHOUSE! The crew of the Lost Light are used to past decisions coming back to bite them, but nothing—not even an ULTRA MAGNUS-certified crash course in the law of unintended consequences—could have prepared them for the horrors of Sector 113. Be warned: this issue is not for the easily distressed—or the easily heartbroken.
Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #2
BOOTS ON THE GROUND! The war has begun—and no bars will be held! SCARLETT’s forces go head-to-head with MEGATRON’s hordes—and the most off-beat adventure in comic book history hits a new level of dangerous alliances, deadly invasions, and devastating betrayals!
Both will be released on Wednesday, August 27, but if you don't mind some spoilers, you can check out the previews after the jump!Read Replies (0)

D-Drive has once again been cool enough to give us the heads up on what we can expect from the world of Transformers comics for next week!
On tap for our beloved Robots In Disguise next Wednesday, August 20th is:
TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE #32 DAWN O/T AUTOBOTS(W) John Barber (A/CA) Andrew Griffith
AUTOBOTS VERSUS EARTH! OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS discover the humans' secret-and they aren't pleased with what they learn! Will the DECEPTICON's alliance tear down the peace-and will the world learn the CYBERTRONIANs are back?
TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #1 (SDCC variant covers A, B and 1-in-10 incentive)(W) Tom Scioli, John Barber (A/CA) Tom Scioli
SPACE WAR I! Earth makes contact with an alien race-and G.I. JOE is on the front lines of first contact! But when the TRANSFORMERS arrive-their version of "peace" does not match our own... Read Replies (0)

Death's Head is an unusual character in Transformers lore. A "freelance peace keeping agent", he was used extensively during the golden era of the 1980s UK Transformers comics - particularly in the 1987 / 1988 story arcs which saw Galvatron timejump to the then-present day, with Rodimus and others in hot pursuit. However, while Death's Head had a lot of page-time in the UK Transformers comics, he never made it to the US Marvel Transformers comics - and because he was owned by Marvel rather than Hasbro, he's never been used in Transformers since, never mind getting a toy.
That has all changed though, because Death's Head has now had an action figure released in the 3.75 inch Marvel Infinite Series collection. He's richly detailed and features his axe, buckler and mace accessories - the axe and mace can replace his fists, like the classic artwork. He's a fun little figure, although the hard rubber skirt tends to limit his legs a bit.

(for those among you who like Doctor Who, yes, Death's Head met him, too...)Read Replies (0)
