Following on from his post yesterday about the leaked Transformers 4 script, Michael Bay posted a follow-up to the effect that he thinks the leaked script is a Hasbro treatment for an unrelated Transformers story - and in the process he apparently confirmed there would not be a movie adaptation comic for Transformers 4 "because we want to keep our story under wraps".
The full quote taken from Michael Bay's site
is below:P.S. I bet it is something from Hasbro. This time they are not doing a comic book of the movie because we want to keep our story under wraps. It must be their version of a comic themed Transformers story they are creating.
This might be a good thing, considering how many of us were spoiled on Dark of the Moon by Amazon posting major, major plot events from the movie adaptation comic online weeks before the movie's release. Hopefully there will be a few more surprises in store for Mr Bay and crew to surprise us with this time out.Read Replies (0)

oscarfung of HK-TF has shared some very cool first looks with the fandom - our first proper in-hand look at the Kre-O Micro Changers Combiners Devastator
. Each set comes with four Kreons who can transform between robot and alternate forms by rearranging their parts, or can be disassembled to form the larger combiner robot.
Of note in these pictures we also have a nice look at the four Kreons in the sets alongside the fifth member of the group, who is available separately in the Micro Changers blind-bag assortment Wave 1. The fifth member cannot combine with the other four by default, but where there's a creative fan, there's sure to be a way.Read Replies (0)

Take this with a grain of salt. Entertainment news site Unleash The Fan Boy is claiming that they have obtained a copy of the Transformers 4 Script.
We can’t prove the credibility of the news but it’s worth checking out if you are curious about Transformers 4 (and love to get spoiled).
Recently, Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles script was also leaked and the Director himself confirmed it is legit but that script was abandoned long ago. Plot leaks happened for all three previous Transformers movies... it wouldn't be a surprise if it happens for the 4th movie as well.
Good thing about this news is that we’ll probably hear a response from the director after awhile.

Update - Director Michael Bay has updated
his official website with the following message:"Some Internet sites this morning reported that some document recovery guy has found a legitimate 120 page script of Transformers 4. I can absolutely 100 percent say this is completely false. The only two people in the world that have our unfinished script are Kruger and myself. Also we are only up to page 70 in our T4 script. Maybe this guy has a cartoon or something else – but definitely not our movie!"
There you have it folks. We may not have gotten a script, but at the end of the day received an update from the Director regarding the progress of Transformers 4.Read Replies (0)

One more Transformers Fall of Cybertron toy gallery for you! This time we're spotlighting the Decepticon Communicator, Soundwave
. There's not a lot to be said about Soundwave that has not already been said about Soundblaster, who is also out in the same assortment. He's a big, chunky toy - refreshingly reversing the trend of making the toys smaller / lighter, Soundwave feels a whole lot more solid than a few of the Prime Voyagers have done. Soundwave's built around his "deploy minions" gimmick, which is fun to do and works decently well.
What will ultimately be the make-or-break for many is that Soundwave is a built out of scale with the other War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron characters released so far - he needs to be for the Data Disk gimmick - although he is a very good size next to Classics Megatron, so there's always the possibility of having this be your Classics Soundwave. If you're a one deco only guy, you might well want to go for Soundblaster instead so you've got two different characters in your collection.
However you do it, I strongly recommend picking up one of the two, because he is a very good and solid toy, one of the best and most fun Voyagers to come along this year. Solidly recommended.
