    #BumblebeeMovie Director Travis Knight Breaks Down the all-new Trailer Courtesy of EmpireOnline Interview

    “...There's a lot going on," laughs Knight. "If I was going to make a Transformers film I wanted to give nods to some of the things that I loved most about the series to begin with and for me seeing those original designs on Shockwave and Soundwave and Ravage and Wheeljack and all those different characters was a really exciting opportunity to take the audience back to that initial wave of Transformers and to evoke the same feeling that they evoked in me. I was pretty giddy bringing those guys to life...

    ...Leading the hunt for Bumblebee are Decepticon triple-changers Shatter (Angela Bassett) and Dropkick (Justin Theroux). Shatter has a Harrier Jump Jet and a red Plymout Satellite muscle car up her robotic sleeve, while Dropkick can flit between a blue AMC Javelin car and a Bell AH-1 SuperCobra attack helicopter. Being Decepticons they're not the most reliable of sources, informing Agent Burns that they're on the trail of a fugitive (Bumblebee), whose capture is essential to stopping an interstellar war.

    "The triple changer aspect was something we leaned into just because I thought it was cool. I wanted to showcase how formidable an opponent could be if they have those kind of abilities and putting our main character up against someting like that was really exciting. One of the things we do in animation is try to evoke an idea or a feeling just with something's silhouette. You can see in this film how with the two Decepticon heavies you have these big, muscular cars these angular aircraft and then you see them go up against this round, warm shape of a VW beetle. Just in the shape language you can evoke a certain feeling...”

    #PowerOfThePrimes - Razorclaw

    Forming the primary, central upper torso to Predaking - he is also the undisputed Predacon Team Leader! Fitting that he is also the arguably the best component toy of the set (in this fan’s humble opinion!) Here, there is no oversized backpack. He’s pose-able, faithfully G1 authentic and somehow equal in scale/size to his team members. Further, he’s suitably complex, sturdy and playable - without being overly complicated. Just as he should be!

    Razorclaw looks quite good right out of the package, though that said, he looks even better with the aftermarket (Reprolabels)sticker set upgrade (Not shown, yet.)

    New photos have been added to the gallery viewable in the Predaking Character page in the 2018 Transformers Section of unicron.com

    #PowerOfThePrimes - Divebomb

    I know there are some who mostly look forward - with anxious anticipation of WFC/Siege and whatever is coming next. That’s cool, but for me, right now, I am still very much excited about and for Power of the Primes. I love this line and truth be told, wish it were running longer. I would, for example, love to see the (G1) Predacons have their day, to tell their tales in modern comics... Alas, it’s all coming to an end, very soon. For now, all we can do is savor these toys and incredible comics fiction while it lasts through what’s left of 2018!

    Let’s now take a close look at the last two team members of the Titan scale box set of Predacons, starting with Divebomb, Predaking’s right arm component.

    Now, if you thought Headstrong’s backpack was something, wait ‘til you check out this beauty! Remarkably, he’s still quite posable, and manages to stand up, despite its back-heavy girth & weight. The wings are a little bigger than ideal for the individual robot mode, and look a little small for the combined Predaking mode. (Unfortunately, designers haven’t come up with an effective mass shifting yet!) All that said, the condor and robot modes looks great, and very good and appropriately complex transformation to Predaking form, which is just plain FUN! In this fan’s opinion, It’s complex, sturdy and playable - without being overly complicated.

    It’s design esthetic certainly satiates the G1-purist in me, (Voyager-Leader in scale), without being slavishly adherent to either the original toy or cartoon model. Designers took creative liberties with this one and they paid off, certainly making this the ultimate toy version of this character.

    Transform and (T.P.!) Roll Out!

    OK, we don’t spend a lot of time with NONofficial transforming toys. But this crazy thing is just too funny. Came across it on Chinese social media site Weibo. We don’t know anything about it besides the very loosely translated Chinese below:

    “Hello everyone, please take a look at the first time, our first variant of the tide play "Stained General" hand officially announced today [坏笑]! From it, we will talk about the hegemony of the bathroom hero! It will also provide a public exhibition of the venue's starting limit and more designs at this year's SHCC show! Stay tuned! Now pay attention to us to forward this microblogging @ three friends will be on October 25 to draw three players to get a limited set of venues!”

    After the brand unification between Hasbro and TakaraTomy kicked off with Power of the Primes and Studio Series (and will continue with Siege), Takara's Transformers: Legends line continues to persist with another forthcoming TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. This time, however, it is not a recent mold release, but a soon-to-be 20-year-old mold from 1999. Seeming to coincide with the Transformers Encore reissue of the cartoon-accurately-colored Big Convoy, the next LG-EX release will be a redeco of that figure in the form of Blue Big Convoy!

    Much like the Encore release of Unicron (Micron Shūgō-tai Color), this is a recreation of what was once a super rare Lucky Draw figure from 1999. However, also like Unicron (Micron Shūgō-tai Color), it is not a straight recreation, as this version will have less translucent plastic with two opaque arms instead of one solid and one clear.

    More recently, the old Lucky Draw figure was actually repurposed in comics made for e-HOBBY's Magna Convoy exclusive as the leader of a legendary group known as the Primus Vanguard. While it remains to be seen whether this Legends release of Blue Big Convoy will fictionally represent Big Convoy himself in a new form, the Primus Vanguard leader remains another distinct possibility for this toy's character identity.

    Legends LG-EX Blue Big Convoy will be released by TakaraTomy Mall in February 2019.
