3A, who have made a goodly number of high-end figures based on the Transformers movie and have upcoming Generation 1 themed offerings, have teased on their Instagram that they will be offering figures based on Transformers the Last Knight and Transformers Age of Extinction. They’ve only shown the logo for The Last Knight, so there’s no telling what they have in mind – but our money would be on a high-end version of Megatron’s new look, and possibly Grimlock or Lockdown. Watch this space for more news as this one develops.
This is a grouped category for both the Transformers movie toys and products plus news related to the actual movies like set updates and new trailers. You can break it down further by following the links to either Transformers Movie (Just Movie) or Transformers Movie Toys & Products under each story.
With a neat little pun on the title of the video, Paramount is sharing a small clip from the Transformers: The Last Knight Wrap Party.
Appropriately titled as “The Last Night“, we are treated to the appearance of Bumblebee, Barricade and Crosshairs much to the delight of the fans who gathered at Drama; a top club in London.
“Transformers stars Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Barricade hit London’s top club Drama, to celebrate wrapping the latest film ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ in the UK.”

Hasbro Chairman and CEO Brian Goldner was interviewed by Yahoo Finance for their recent success. He was pretty happy to talk about Transformers.
Regarding the recently concluded Transformers: Combiner Wars webseries by Machinima, Mr. Goldner stated that the show had 100 Million Views.
Speaking about China and its involvement with the Transformers Franchise:
“I think China and Transformers is one of the biggest growth areas of our company. It’s a beloved brand that’s been known since the 1980s. In fact it was on the air since the animation in 1980s. Every time I travel to China, I meet a lot of grown adults who talk to me about how they are such fans of the brand. We only just scratched the surface of what’s possible in China. This past quarter we’ve seen a great growth in Chinese business and we’ve seen a great growth overall from China and our emerging market business. We really believe we are in the starting gate of what’s possible in China for the Transformers business.”

Snakas Blog is sharing with us an in-hand image of Transformers: The Last Knight Voyager Class Optimus Prime.
The revealed figure is the same as what we saw on the leaked Color Guide last week.
A comparison shot with the old AOE Armor Knight Optimus Prime clearly shows the improvements made on the mold.
We’ve mirrored the image with this news post. Check it out, after the jump.
If anyone picked up Surrey Advertiser on Friday to do some light reading on the weekend, they’ll be treated to a little article summarizing the Transformers: The Last Knight Principal Photography which took place in Bourne Woods fortnight ago.
We’ve selected some interesting bits from the article for you to read:
“It was pretty brutal, to be fair,” an extra [who played a Saxon invader] said about the filming. “We had to go through hair and make-up first, which was pretty cool. They covered us in fake blood and made a mess of your hair, which I wasn’t too pleased about. There was a lot of charging up and down hills – it was really tiring. There were fake dead horses, heads on spikes, lots of fire and smoke, with lots of explosions and dirt falling everywhere.”
“Sometimes it was running down the hill then up the hill. At one point we were supposed to be running away from something and look scared. I was pretty scared anyway because there were horses charging past me and lots of huge, angry men. They were these great big guys and they would say ‘no, after you’ or ‘excuse me’. They were really polite.”
What’s so great about Michael Bay is his attention to detail:
“Costumes included ‘scary helmets’ chainmail. Mine was running I would quite quite fur, and plain really, I had a leather breastplate thing and a bit of fur running down my back and a chainmail mini dress, which was quite interesting. It was absolutely brilliant. It was a real drag coming back to work. It’s nowhere near as exciting.”
Finally, the extra added “I would love to do it all over again.”
There is an ongoing thread on our Movie Sub-Forum where you can chime in your thoughts. Check it out.

A the end of another week, Transformers: The Last Knight has entered the final week of principal photography. But, the schedule may differ based on any additional scenes the crew wish to film.
As one door closes another will open. The subsequent months leading up to the release of the movie will treat us with trailers and toy leaks. First leak already came our way thanks to a Color Guide on Weibo.
Another TF5 Featurette was officially revealed last week. Titled as “The Rolling Room“, this making-of clip showed actor Mark Wahlberg performing a stunt with co-star Laura Haddock.
LeEco officially unveiled their new LeSEE Pro driverless car and announced its appearance on the new movie. Director Michael Bay was so impressed with it, he may even own one later.
Official images of the Aston Martin DB11 which was spotted during the London Filming was also released to the public last week. Sporting the number plate KS16WVD, this beautiful car is rumored to be a character titled “Cogman“. Whether this is the final name or a placeholder name is yet to be determined.
Finally we have Hasbro, Paramount and its team of Writers Room, speaking about their future plans for the franchise. The upcoming years will treat us with three consecutive years of Transformers content on the Big Screen and the proposed Hasbro Cinematic Universe.
As you can see, it was a very quite week compared to what happened before. We thank our members for their valuable contribution and looks forward to another cool week. Have a great weekend, folks.

Via Alucard Lee on Weibo, we have our first look at our first toy for Transformers the Last Knight. The Last Knight’s Optimus Prime is on show in this leaked Hasbro design sheet, and is looking very movie accurate. We can see that this version of Optimus is still sporting the sword and shield, and the buzz is this is the new line’s Leader class release (though there is also a school of thought saying this might be a Voyager). Check out the image attached to this story and see what you think.
Toys R Us Japan have updated their listings for the Transformers Movie anniversary series with color images of the Grimlock and Strafe releases for the line. These two were previously shown as grey models even when we saw the rest in color – and we can now report that Grimlock will be sporting a movie accurate palette of greys and greenish greys. Strafe looks more or less as he did on the original release, with a healthy amount of blue. Check out the images of both toys attached to this post.
