Word from BoxOfficeMojo
tells us that Transformers: Dark Of The Moon has passed the Lifetime Revenue
of Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, this weekend.
In just 26 Days Transformers 3 earned $882,389,000 ($882 Million) worldwide whereas Transformers 2 only managed to grab $836,297,228 (836 Million).
Unfortunately Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 destroyed DOTM at the boxoffice; shattering records previously held by TF3 not too long ago. But as we speak, Paramount’s Captain America got a Shield powerful enough to protect the company from Potter’s magic.
Transformers 3 is yet to release in Japan later this week. And with it hopefully will reach the US$ 1 Billion mark comfortably.
If you have enjoyed the movie… go watch it again… If you haven’t watched it yet… what are you waiting for? Read Replies (0)

Some images of a bunch of new third party Transformers designs have begun to circulate around the net. Posted on ACToys and subsequently reposted on HK-TF
and other fansites are some images of a custom third party take on Steeljaw, which looks barely any different to the original other than incorporating a few other parts into the design.
Also posted on HK-TF
are some very rough (we assume) early versions of nano-scale versions of Kup and Scourge. These are presumably going to be sub Scout sized when they are done, like the works of Gungs Borchitect and Jizai Toys.Read Replies (0)
