I Asked Michael Bay About Unicron
- - His Response Was ...Entertaining!
There was this particularly wonderful moment yesterday while a group of us were gathered in his personal office in Santa Monica, he asked us ~ "Surely you guys must have questions?" Surprised by his invitation and opportunity to ask whatever we want, the group stayed well-behaved, mostly inquiring about things we thought he would like to answer. For example, Ben Yee asked about incorporating Dinobots and dragons into the films, which gave him an opportunity to talk about how he works. Michael explained that he writes his own action sequences, largely because he can literally remember every shot he's ever done and is always striving to make each one fresh and new. The incorporation of battling beasts provides a unique perspective to create action sequences that have not been done before, which he seemed particularly enthusiastic about!
But, being who I am, I couldn't resist the temptation - introduced myself being with unicron.com and asked, "Look, we know you and your concept artists have seen the original 1986 classic, Transformers The Movie! I mean, people like me love the homages you incorporated, like on Lockdown's ship, with the pincer teeth reminiscent of Unicron's planet mode mouth, and the tractor beam sucking up civilization! and now #TheLastKnight trailer has this giant horn sticking out of the ground for heaven's sake! Okay, so can you please comment about your thoughts on Unicron?!"
You could tell it was a question he was not expecting. But his facial reaction told the story and gave me my indirect answer! He immediately looked away, while smiling from ear to ear, as he started rubbing his forehead and answered, almost to himself, ~ "Okay, okay okay - you're not going to get me talking about *that!* Okay, so I like to film these action sequences...something, something, something..." abruptly changing the subject!
I knew I'd never get a straight answer, before I even asked the question. But the truth is, the response I got was WAY more fun! Notice! He did not give a blank stare or puzzled look wondering what I was talking about! Besides, imagine how not-fun it would've been if he had just come out and said, "Yes! That's Unicron!" Now we have a 3-month build up to #TransformersMovie - like Christmas, to wait, and to wonder, knowing he and his team of artists and animators are absolutely, acutely aware of who Unicron is!
A little later in the evening, we were gathered in one of his editing rooms, and he starts pulling up concept art, including one piece, showing a different Earthen scene, it was titled something like, "Siberian Landscape" and had a similar gigantic Unicron looking horn thing sticking out of the icy landscape. At this point, I knew he was having fun, messing with us! He offered no more answers this time than before, providing only a mischievous, and knowing smirk as the group begged, "alright what is that thing?!"
Look, it's entirely possible that Unicron will not be mentioned, hinted about or seen in #TheLastKnight. But for now, let's enjoy the anticipation, and speculation - soon enough - in only three months, we'll know!

"Cogman" New Character Revealed Via Animated #Transformers #TheLastKnight Movie Poster!
Alright, we need to talk about this guy. His role is something like that of a butler (with a screw loose!) to British aristocrat played by Sir Anthony Hopkins. What you need to know is that, for me, he was a very exciting part of what we got to see at the IMAX theatre yesterday. If what you want is personality, depicted in on-screen Transformers, he's got it - in spades! He also has another secret - that I was asked not to divulge, but trust me, it's awesome and fans are going to love it!
He is voiced by Jim Carter who plays the quintessential loyal butler character "Mr. Carson" on the critically acclaimed series, Downton Abbey. Enjoy this first glimpse, courtesy of #TransformersMovie on Facebook.
This was no average Tuesday night! It was like a dream for this #Transformers fan to have the opportunity to talk at length with the creative mind behind Transformers films. He invited us to share thoughts and opinions as we learned about movie making process, and saw a lot of never-before-seen footage from #TheLastKnight, all at IMAX corporate HQ in Los Angeles!
My immediate, takeaway: it was an overwhelming and positive experience providing quite a few reasons to believe The Last Knight will be the best film yet, perhaps, by FAR! Stay tuned - a more detailed report is forthcoming!
Check out the Autobot gangsta (!) - in all his carbon fiber, meched out and colorful glory! Had the opportunity today to get an up close, personal look, and photograph his gorgeous auto mode, which will be featured in the upcoming film,
The Last Knight!
Some pretty cool things to be seen at Paramount including Allspark prop used in filming the first Transformers movie and other interesting tidbits!
Fun fact: The scene, where they filmed Isabella Moner character saying "Yeah, I fight like a girl..." was It's only a few feet away from where they filmed the alley scene where Steve Rogers picks up a garbage can lid says "I could do this all day!" In the first Captain America film! - All on Paramount Studios set. - See photos below!
One of my favorite additions to the Titans Return line, comes in this beautiful new homage to G1 - (1986) Transformers The Movie stars, the Sharkticons; or as named in the original and new packaging "Gnaw." At this lower price point, it is difficult to resist the temptation to buy every one I see to build an army of these vicious, but cute little things!
They wear the Decepticon emblem, although their allegiance seems to always have been to their Quintesson masters. Check out our complete new gallery now available in the 2017 Transformers Section of unicron.com

As is now known, the official Transformers fan convention, BotCon, is no more, having come to its official end in 2016. However, while Hasbro plans to continue the summer media event through its upcoming Hascon, former BotCon organizer Pete Sinclair is creating a spiritual successor to BotCon in the form of the unofficial Pete's Robot Convention, which will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio on June 23-24, 2017.
And now, the Pete's Robot Convention Facebook has updated with the announcement of several extremely rare and one-of-a-kind Transformers items to be on display at the convention, many of which never saw release in any official market. Below is a reposting of the announcement. ...
