More Ebay Temptations, TF2 News on MTV Movie Blog

Update 3: Well, the Transformers factories in China appear to be in full swing TFA production.  For the first time ever, you can also find 5 different Leader Class Bulkhead toys...
Update 2: Also, now available for your bidding pleasure, TFA Dinobot: SLAG!  (Well, Snarl but as TFA Art Director Derrick Wyatt said, "He's always SLAG to me!"

They're auctions for loose toys with no instructions, no packaging, they're probably stolen from the factory and they don't even show new photos!  (The seller may have even ripped off from someone's Botcon/Hasbro Display photos?...)  But hey they are the first auctions we've seen for TFA Soundwave or Jazz, now available for your bidding pleasure.  The good news is, this means we're getting closer to the toy's release in stores.  So how high do you think these auctions will go and which toy/character will sell for more?

In other (unrelated) news  Transformers 2 movie Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura talks a little with MTV Movies Blog.  Among other tidbits, he says that several casting surprises will be revealed in the coming weeks.  He also confirmed that John Voight will be back.  Broadside?  Sorry, nope!  No aircraft carrier this time around.

No Braodside, Tidal Wave, or Majin Zarak (JK)? Oh well. The toy would be either WAY too expensive or WAY too out of scale.

The only Japanese animated movie with a transforming aircraft carrier that I know of is Beast Wars Special Super Lifeform Transformers.

His toy would have likely been way too out of scale given that even if they made him "Ultimate Bumblebee" sized, he would still be horrendously out of scale. I live in Corpus Christi and I can look outside and see the U.S.S. Lexington outside. No way would they ever get the scale right.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-08 16:37:47
I'd much rather have Dinobots or uniting Constructicions anyway! Bring on Ultimate movie Grimlock! (Slag, Sludge, Snarl and Swoop!)
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-08 16:53:26
You have such a wishful mind, Perceptor. Too bad the Dinobots won't be in the Movies. *sigh*

I like how all these sellers are new and have like no feedback good or bad and are gonna make a ton of money off these toys.

must have sound wave
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-05-08 18:01:30
I definitely want Soundwave.
Human Error said,  - 2008-05-08 19:16:29
i want the soundwave more than any of the animated but, paying over $200 for a $10 figure! Sorry, no dice ill just be patiant and wait till they hit the shelves. besides im always one that lives for the thrill of the hunt and refuse to buy formers off the net, its cheating and too easy to me :-) theres a certain sense of pride i get looking at my collection knowing i personally found every one of them without the help of the net. (except of course using the sightings page here of course :-))

And on the TF2 subject lets not forget they are going to spread lies about it so we cant cancel out anything. I mean just until a few days ago Jonah Hill was rumored to be in talks to play Sams roommate at Princeton. That brings me to my next bit of information on TF2.

Take this for what its worth and believe me or not, but i know from a very very reliable source where they will be filming scenes near me at the end of July. once i find out exact dates ill be sure to try to crash the set and get pics. id love to give you guys specifics but ive been asked not to repeat too much information about it. (people could lose their jobs and such).
Blasten Blaster said,  - 2008-05-08 20:37:00
just remember HE its not cheating if its a foreign figure.
Human Error said,  - 2008-05-09 09:15:06
Thats very true BB but foreign releases are a whole nother subject.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-09 10:15:29
>>im always one that lives for the thrill of the hunt
Indeed! Likewise.
Prime said,  - 2008-05-09 10:47:35
Wasnt Soundwave a cassette player at the end of sound and fury?!
Perceptor said,  - 2008-05-09 11:30:26
mkbauch said,  - 2008-05-09 13:15:39
Actually he looked more like an MP3 player at the end of Sound and Fury, I can't imagine them using cassettes. But I agree wtih Human Error, I'm all for the thrill of the hunt and I'm personally chomping at the bit for Megatron. All three Megatrons.
Someone said,  - 2008-05-09 13:46:55
I'm just waiting to see TFA toys in the UK
Autobutt said,  - 2008-05-09 15:13:46
HE thats some powerful information....

and do u guys think theyll remake soundwave as a toy?
mkbauch said,  - 2008-05-09 15:45:28
What I'd like to see in the next movie is Soundwave with at least Laserbeak and Ravage, but they have to tread carefully with them. On one hand, his alternate mode needs to hold his troops, but it wouldn't be practical for him to be a tape deck. Since most of my media devices take memory cards and micro memory cards, those alternate modes would be embarassingly small for Ravage and Laserbeak. So where is the middle ground for Soundwave's alternate mode?
chicane said,  - 2008-05-09 16:47:13
to talk about bad scale,movie arcee
Human Error said,  - 2008-05-09 19:25:22
"and do u guys think theyll remake soundwave as a toy?"

What do you mean Autobutt? they have one coming out for animated as you can see above.

And its good to see there are still some "old-school" collectors out there.
mkbauch said,  - 2008-05-09 20:16:14
No kidding chicane, I think some of the worst offenders of scale are the movie toys. I've never seen a motorcycle bigger then a 2 door coupe. Course, if they didn't throw scale out the door, you'd be paying forty bucks for not just Megatron and a really good Brawl, but for Starscream (which I'd actually be okay with) and Blackout...esentially most of the Decepticons because for the sake of scale they'd need to be Leader Class. While that would be great from a collector's stand point, it would be a really hard blow to the budget.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-05-09 20:48:53
Which is why they should go back to the prices of the Beast Wars size classes:

Basic (A.K.A. Scout), at US$5
Deluxe, at US$10
Mega (A.K.A Voyager), at US$15
Ultra, at US$20
Super (A.K.A. Leader), at US$30

I'm guessing Supreme would be at US$40 or US$45; and Ultimate would be US$60 or US$70.
mkbauch said,  - 2008-05-10 08:15:55
Thats got to be the best idea I've heard in a long time Sabrblade.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-05-10 13:55:21
oops i meant do u think theyll have 2 different soundwave toys, one the car and the other an MP3 player
mkbauch said,  - 2008-05-10 15:21:08
I really don't know Autobutt, but that actually would be really cool, or if they sold a mini version of Soundwave as the media player with the larger figure. I doubt it will happen, but it would be cool.
ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-05-10 15:48:29
no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. this must be a mistake. no tidal wave. dont count on me seeing TF2
Perceptor's Dad said,  - 2008-05-10 16:34:54
Soundwave likes men. I hope he's not in the movie.
