The All Hail Optimus storyline is just beginning and Major Spoilers has your review of Transformers #52.

Shout! Factory and Hasbro studios have announce a full length film to be released as the epilogue for the fantastic Transformers Prime series. The film, Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising, is set to release October 28. We have some more details and the initial box art after the jump.
With the summer release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon coming soon it’s only natural that Hasbro focused most of its Transformers presentation on it. While most of the movie figures are merely updates of what fans have seen from the previous two film’s toy lines, Hasbro did have a few tricks up their sleeves.
Hot on the heels of the Transformers movie, Marvel and IDW Publishing’s second issue of New Avengers/Transformers is set to arrive August 8. Marvel has sent us a sneak peek of of the the issue that finds Doc Doom and Megatron teaming up. “In the debut issue, we built slowly to the big first meeting of these two famous groups, and here’s where the readers’ patience pays off,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “The Avengers–who have been pushed to a violent place due to the Decepticons chicanery–and the Autobots—who have rolled in to squash the rising tempers—run head-on into each other…as
The movie has only been on screens for a few short hours and already Transformers has been greenlit for a sequel by Dreamworks and Paramount pictures. I gotta tell you, I’ve been pretty excited about seeing the Transformers movie, even though Michael Bay is the director. Typically I go into movies expecting the worst, and then am pleasantly surprised when it doesn’t suck. Unfortunately my worst fear about this movie seem to be confirmed in the early review Josh Howard posted on his site. You know that guy you work with or that relative of yours that likes to take
We’ve kind of seen these before, but now Hasbro has officially unveiled the Transformers Protoform transforming toy. Looks really ugly to me, but hey, I’m not a 7 year old kid (in spite of what my wife says). It’s another look at what we can expect from Michael Bay this summer. What do you think?
The official Transformers website has been updated to not only include the winning line from the “Make Prime Speak” contest, but now has Peter Cullen voicing the top ten submissions. No, mine isn’t on there, I guess it sounds rather odd to have Optimus Prime saying, “That Shaft is one bad mutha-” Anyway, you can get your Transformers fill for the day by heading over to the site.

Holy Crap! The Transformers trailer is now online for you to view – and we actually get to see Transformers this time. Pretty freakin’ cool. Even though this is a Michael Bay movie, and it will probably suck, this trailer has me wanting to head into the movie theatre just to check it out. What would be even more cool is if the Transformer at the end of the trailer actually steps on the little girl – only joking! via Paramount (link)
Someone embedded in Michael Bay’s production company has been leaking photos of the transforming cast of the Transformers Movie. Jalopnik has posted CGI images of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and (sadly) Megatron. Here’s just a snippet of the OP goodness. Gotta say, I like what I’m seeing both for Prime and Bumblebee. While Jalopnik claims these are from the inside, today with the piracy of 3D software, any kid could be making these and posting. Still, with what we have seen before, I’m going to believe it. Now if only the movie would be as good as the leaks, everything would
USA Today has an interview with Peter Cullen, voice of Optimus Prime. As many of us already know, Cullen was not the first choice to play the part. I (heard) the movie was going to be done, and then I heard rumors that big actors … were being considered for the role. And that’s when I found out about (my) fan base — I was very, very surprised. That’s when I started thinking, “Gee whiz, I hope these guys get what they want. Then I started saying, “Boy, I hope I get it, too!” I finally got a call from
Looking for a slew of Transformer pics (Scott Johnson, I’m looking your way)? Don’t scour the web going from one site to another, check out the Flickr Transformers set. Wow, lot’s of stuff. Let’s hope it doesn’t spoil everything about the movie for you. via Flickr (link)
