    The opening montage for the beginning of GI JOE the movie is better than the movie itself...

    Duke was supposed to die, but they changed it after all the outrage over OP's death in TF the Movie...

    If they were going to kill off all of the G1 characters, I want to see how it was done...I read somwhere there is a story board for it....something like Devastator just wasting all of them B4 Prime arrives with the Dino-bots.

    I was 11 when TF the movie was released....i was like "Holy Crap" when Prime died...yeah...just about every little kid in the theatre was crying...I jumped up and yelled when Starscream got his....
    Ironhide kills Barricade!!!

    I also don't understand why some hardcore TF fans hate the 2007 and 2009 movies and love 1986's movie? I'm a hardcore TF fan and love all three movies.

    I thought GI Joe The Movie was inferior to the Transformers movie as you can say GI Joe Rise of Cobra was inferior to the live-action TF movie, but wasn't it awesome to hear Don Johnson and Burgess Merdith including Sgt. Slaughter do voices?

    Starring iconic actors like Orson Welles, Peter Cullen, Eric Idle, Casey Kasem, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack and Frank Welker, “Transformers – The Movie” finds the Autobots juggling the approach of Unicron — a colossal planet-eating robot who goes after the Autobot Matrix of Leadership — with an all-out attack from the Decepticons. The film’s new special edition will feature a newly remastered version of the film, bonus content and collectible packaging.

    “The ‘Transformers’ franchise has been part of American popular culture for more than 30 years, developing into one of the most recognizable brands around the globe,” Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President of Hasbro, said in a statement. “’TransformersThe Movie’ played a huge role in the brand’s early success, laying the foundation for major motion pictures, several successful TV series, clothing and apparel, toys and much more. We are thrilled to work with Shout! Factory to deliver the original movie to fans in a completely remastered HD experience.”

    “’Transformers – The Movie’ is a highly sought-after animated feature, boasting a large fan following and consumer interest. On its 30th anniversary, we look forward to celebrating this film by bringing it to North America on Blu-ray for the first time. Having worked closely with Hasbro Studios on top brands like animated series ‘Transformers Robots in Disguise’ ‘G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero,’ ‘Transformers Prime,’ ‘My Little Pony,’ ‘My Little Pony Equestria Girl’ movies and more, this is incredibly exciting and important news for us,” added Melissa Boag, Senior Vice President of Kids & Family Entertainment at Shout! Factory. “We look forward to bringing ‘Transformers – The Movie,’ featuring all-new HD transfer with stunning packaging and great extras to fans and on family home entertainment shelves.”

    'Transformers: The Movie' To Get 30th Anniversary BluRay Release

    For those that didn’t grow up in the 80s, Transformers: The Movie was a huge deal. The movie followed on from the events in the TV show and was meant as the bridge to an all-new series, with updated protagonists and antagonists. So, the movie was meant as a passing of the torch from the old generation to the new.


    Not to mention it was also one of the last movies Orson Welles worked on, as he initially voiced the planet destroying Unicron though he sadly died during production and Leonard Nimoy had to take over.


    It also had luscious animation and that is no surprise when you consider that much of the movie’s animation was handled in Japan. This Japanese angle resurfaced a few times, not only in the movie itself but also in its eventual promotion.


    As Transformers already came from two Japanese properties, specifically Diaclone and Microman, the cultural linkage had always been there. However, the multi-toned cel shading and animation in the movie was a real step above most of its competition (as shown below).


    This was no accident though, as around the time the movie was in production Zeta Gundam was also underway. That too had some amazing animation and it seems that some of the production worked on both projects, as parts of Zeta Gundam mobile suits ended up in Transformers: The Movie.


    The other major part in this is that Yoshiyuki Takani was called in to do the key art, that was later used on posters for promotion. Takani was one of the main toy and model kit box artists at the time, with the other being the equally talented Yuji Kaida.


    Takani’s intricate paintings brought anime like Aura Battler Dunbine and Char’s Counterattack to life and his work is still greatly respected event today. In that regard, his work on Transformers: The Movie is something that most fans both in Japan and abroad still think of fondly.


    Now, to be fair this is not technically the first time we’ve had a BluRay release of Transformers: The Movie in the West, as back in 2007 we had a European version. However, that release had coloring issues but this edition looks to have been entirely remastered.


    Transformers: The Movie is released on September 13th on BluRay and DVD.

    Empire has a story out about the writer’s room that has been assembled to keep Paramount in Transformers scripts for centuries to come. Via the Transformers fan site Transformer World 2005, we now have this information:


    A Bumblebee spinoff, conceived and written by Christina Hodson, is being directed by Kubo and the Two Strings’ Travis Knight for a 2018 release. Set in the 1980s, it will feature significantly fewer Transformers, concentrating on the big, yellow star (who in the movies so far can only talk in snippets of radio broadcasts) and likely pitching a little younger, tonally. Also coming is an animated prequel about the origin myth of the Transformers’ home planet Cybertron, written by Ant-Man’s Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, set billions of years ago. And discussions have been had about one set in Ancient Rome.

    To sum things up:


    • Michael Bay met with the writers of TFCU during the principal photography of 13 Hours: Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi.


    • Ken Nolan, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway wrote the story for Transformers: The Last Knight.


    • Every iteration, every era was considered for the Cinematic Universe.


    • The story of TLK is a combination of Nolan’s pitch on a story based on Transformers and King Arthur and Marcum/Holloway’s story based on World War II. However, the article states that three stories were consolidated into the movie.


    • The Bumblebee Movie story is set in 1980s.


    • The Bumblebee Movie will have less robots and the main focus is [obviously] Bumblebee.


    • The tone of The Bumblebee Movie is pitched for the younger audience it seems.


    • An Animated prequel is in the works. The story takes place in Cybertron regarding the origin myth of the Transformers millions of years ago. Ant-Man writers are working on the project.


    • Transformers movie set is ancient Rome is also in the works.


    • You can read more via the attached scans on this news post.




    P.S: Additionally, we’ve included an image of the 6 Editors working on the new movie to be delivered in less than 5 weeks.
