Cade's Junkyard - Transformers Augmented Reality Game Release!
In Conjunction with the Release of Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD, fans can download a FREE Mobile App Lets Users Play as BUMBLEBEE. See the complete press release and game trailer through the link below!
App Created by Viacom NEXT using Apple® ARKit Technology
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (November 21, 2017) — Paramount Home Media Distribution today unveiled a free augmented reality experience for iOS app users, coinciding with the release of Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD. Created by Viacom’s VR team Viacom NEXT using Apple ARKit technology, the app incorporates content from the latest film in the blockbuster series, Transformers: The Last Knight.
The app overlays 3D graphics onto a user’s surrounding physical space, designed as the virtual junkyard of protagonist Cade Yeager as seen in Transformers: The Last Knight. Players control the actions of BUMBLEBEE, directing his movement while hitting, blowing up and interacting with various objects, which can be added to expand the interactive environment.
“This augmented reality experience gives fans the chance to interact with the Transformers universe in a new and exciting way,” said Howard Hsieh, Vice President, Worldwide Digital Business Development, Paramount Home Media Distribution. “The Transformers films appeal to a vast and diverse audience and we’re excited to give fans the opportunity to get in the driver’s seat and take BUMBLEBEE for a ride.”
“With ARKit, we can seamlessly bridge virtual and physical worlds to create immersive experiences that bring storytelling to life,” said Chaki Ng, Senior Vice President of Viacom NEXT. “We’re thrilled to help break this new ground at Paramount.”
The experience is free to download from the App Store until February 20, 2018. Users can also order Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K HDR through the app. The Transformers 5-movie Collection will also be available on 4K HDR for purchase exclusively on iTunes beginning November 21, 2017.

If what you’re hoping for is the be-all, and end-all, Masterpiece/definitive Slag figure, then you will probably be disappointed. Of course, sacrifices had to be made in size/scale and part count to produce this figure as a Deluxe scale toy with the ability to transform into a Combiner limb. That said, I think designers did a remarkable job getting it so incredibly close in likeness to the G1 toy while adding modern day level pose-ability, sculpting detail and combination function. And seeing as how the triceratops Dinobot was called “Snarl” in TF:Animated, at least Hasbro is getting closer with the newest version of his name!
Now, considering the likelihood that a Titan scale Predking may be forthcoming in 2018, I’m curious to hear what fans would have preferred? Would you have rather had a Dinobot in 5-Voyager Dinobots (Titan) scale and therefore Predaking comprised of 4-Deluxe 1-Voyager? Or keep Predakingthr largest of Combiners - as what we’re getting?
Check out photos and share your thoughts on this, Power of the Primes Wave 1 Dinobots!

Power of the Primes Jazz (just starting to hit shelves now), is everyone's favorite cool cat who just wants to groove to some tunes. Little did he know that his paint deco was singing quite a different tune. It appears that one of Hasbro's venders has snuck some politically charged cybertronian graffiti onto poor Jazz that translates to MAGA (AKA "Make America Great Again"). We're curious to see how Hasbro will sort this out; perhaps a running-change deco update of Jazz with an added COEXIST bumper sticker?
BigBadToyStore has opened up preorders for Gcreation's upcoming figure GDW-02 Rebel, based on Prowl's fantastic IDW redesign by Andrew Griffith introduced in issue 12 of Robots in Disguise. Pre-order yours today: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/65051
Follow the link, watch the first two segments on the app go90 and then come back here to share your thoughts! The last time we saw a Transformers episode titled “Rebirth” it was so bad it put an end to the entire Generation One cartoon series! And while the Combiner Wars Series did not inspire over-confidence, we have hopes this chapter will provide fans with some much needed fiction to adequately compliment the phenomenal toy line.
Takara-Tomy just released a new promotional video with even more images of the stunningly show accurate upcoming Masterpiece Dinobot. Pre-order yours from The Chosen Prime today! http://www.thechosenprime.com/MP41DinobotBW
