Paramount Hosting a Reality TV Show to Cast Chinese Cast Members for Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on April 18 '13 at 09:30 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
...You read that right. Yahoo! reports that as part of a deal with a Chinese TV studio, Paramount is working on a show named Transformers 4 Chinese Actor Talent Search of which the four winners of the show (Two WITH acting experience and two without) will be given roles on the upcoming fourth film in the franchise.

HONG KONG – Having announced plans in early April for Transformers 4 to be a Chinese co-production involving the inclusion of some Chinese content, Paramount Pictures has now gone one step further in shaping the project along Chinese lines – by casting its Chinese roles through a reality television show, one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the country.
Launched at a press conference in Beijing on Thursday, the Transformers 4 Chinese Actor Talent Search will be a new talent competition television show in which the four winners – two with professional acting experience, two without – will be granted roles in the next entry of the franchise.

The show is set to commence broadcast in China in June 2013, with a panel of judges comprising Sid Ganis, the former head of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and the current chairman of Jiaflix; the film’s producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura and casting director Denise Chamian; Paramount’s marketing and distribution chief Megan Colligan.

The film’s Chinese backers will be represented by Jia Qi, deputy director of the film’s Chinese co-producers China Movie Channel; and Liang Longfei, vice-president of m1905, the channel’s portal through which contestants (who need to be over 18) can register for the show.

Michael Bay Talks Transformers Movie Franchise
Posted by News Fetcher on April 18 '13 at 05:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Nope, he’s not talking about Transformers 4 on this interview. Instead, Director Michael Bay took his time to talk about the Transformers Live Action Movie Series as a whole when he spoke to New York Times during an interview about his upcoming movie Pain & Gain. But there is a small tidbit regarding Transformers 4 at the beginning of the article. It seems as though preliminary CGI Animation has begun and there is going to be a robot-to-robot battle in the middle of an unknown city.

“As Mr. Bay watched ILM’s preliminary animation for his latest“Transformers” movie, blocky images of giant robots trading blows in the middle of a city, his visceral reactions, often with variations on the word “cool” — “That’s pretty cool”; “We can do something cooler”; “Maybe you could get a nice slice through his face” — seemed to signal approval.

On the first “Transformers,” Mr. Bay said, he was chided by Steven Spielberg for allowing actors to improvise too much.

“Steven said to me, ‘Michael, I would like you to shoot something that’s in the script,’ ” he recalled. “And I was like, ‘Steven, this is how I work.’ ” Even if 80 percent of what he shot was terrible, Mr. Bay said, “You’re going to get 20 percent that’s gold.”

There is also the baseline level of scorn that greets Mr. Bay’s new releases, delivered with a hostility usually reserved for corrupt politicians or industrial polluters. For a not-at-all-random sampling, consult Roger Ebert’s takedown of the 2009 “Transformers” sequel “Revenge of the Fallen,” which he called “a horrible experience of unbearable length, briefly punctuated by three or four amusing moments.”

“Faust made a better deal” than Mr. Bay did, he added."


Check out the original article at New York Times. It’s a good read for Transformers Live Action Movie Fans and Michael Bay Fans alike.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Third party group Excellent Toys have revealed a new unlicensed version of Optimus Prime.

Comic Preview and Bio for Upcoming e-HOBBY Magnificus
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '13 at 09:30 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
e-HOBBY has updated their website with the bio of the upcoming Magnificius release, as well as a colored cover image of the comic that will be included with the release.

Please bear in mind that the translation of the bio is VERY ROUGH:

Name: Magnificus
Status: Exile

Once Military Affairs Advisor for Mebion, Magnificus was betrayed by an unknown comrade and banished to frontier space. Forced to serve as a gun-for-hire, he has spent long years on the run from bounty hunters with his comrade-in-arms, Gamede. But the pair has finally found a means to achieve their revenge: body data stolen from Perceptor using Gamede's ability to shrink to atomic size! Redesigning his body using this data, Magnificus has successfully mastered the art of "Psychometry", which is the ability to see residual images by scanning objects and other lifeforms. Can Magnificus master this ability and use it to determine the identity of his betrayer?


The e-HOBBY exclusive Magnificus will be available both through e-HOBBY and the Transformers Collector's Club.

IGear Mini Warriors MW-10 Red Baron and MW-11 Busta Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 16 '13 at 08:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd party group Igear has updated their Facebook page with renders of the next two characters in their Mini Warriors line. First up is MW-10 Red Baron, a homage to Generation 1 Powerglide that includes a gatling gun weapon. Second, is Busta. A homage to Generation 1 Wheelie. Complete with slingshot weapon and a name to reflect his unique way of speech.

No other information is given on their Facebook page regarding a possible release date. However, one can wager these will be priced similarly to the other upcoming Mini Warriors (Duneraker, Bushwacker, Cogz and Veer) due for release in May.

Transformers Go! G01-03 silhouettes
Posted by News Fetcher on April 16 '13 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An image has surfaced which purports to show the silhouettes of the three Japan-only Transformers Go! Samurai. G01, 02 and 03 are new molds with a combination gimmick which allows them to assume three different combined modes. These silhouettes hint at what the individual robots might be - one thing that is very obvious is the emphasis on melee weapons. Check out the alleged silhouette at left.
