We at TFW have a very interesting report for you movie and Beast Wars fans on this Sunday night. Friend of the site and Transformers collector extraordinaire Protoman recently had the privilege of visiting the set of Transformers 7 in Montreal, Canada and was able to learn some interesting tidbits to share with fans via his livestream.
For one, Optimus Prime, as featured in the recent transportation images will indeed be a G1-inspired truck, while Bumblebee will also be present as an undisclosed yellow vehicle.
Other robotic cast members however are particularly interesting. In Protoman’s own words: “There are other characters I saw but they are all NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) and we cannot talk about them right now. But they are Beast-related.” He ended by reiterating with “There are Beasts in the movie, and you will be happy.”
So, there you have it. In addition to a G1-inspired Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, it sounds like, as has been rumored, Beasts will indeed be appearing in the upcoming film. Not much beyond that is known at this time, however, Protoman does sound optimistic about what he learned about the Beasts.
You can check out Protoman’s stream over on YouTube. We’d like to thank him once again for sharing all of this with us!
