I'm not sure if that's a model that'll stand the test of time. With so many big-box stores disappearing, how long are you going to be able to parasitize (for lack of a better word) their customers? But maybe they're just planning to use that as a launching platform that'l lead to independent, small...

It was awful. As if it were written to prove Merlin's existence, that dragons are real, make Pangea factual, and finally to explain Stonehenge. Everything else was filler to put those pieces together. Ugh. Worst. Makes me wish we could rewind to TF:4 and have Lockdown (who I still believe was the be...

Thanks, all. I think I'll save my money for Spiderman: Homecoming and rent TF:5 when Amazon has the HD rental for $1.

Anyone care to offer some non-spoilerish commentary on the new movie? I have done my best to keep away from most of the trailers, toy pics, and tv spots. I've noticed a recent trend that the frequency and amount of promotion for a new movie is directly proportional to the suckiness of the same. Lots...

Official movie poster reveal:

No excitement for this movie, but ooh, that tagline! Actually fitting since Optimus hasn't been the classic hero he is since the first film.

Maybe that Sandstorm is actually the first toy for the upcoming Transformers-Mad Max film from the new Transformers Film Universe.

The Dinobots' introduction felt like a cheat after they made a big deal out of Prime's whole "we need a new army" line in all the trailers, and especially after they found that metal dinosaur in the Arctic in at the start of the film. It seemed like they were building up to a grand quest to find th...

From the top of the cab, it looks like there's a hinge that's not on MP-10, almost like the whole top flips up and over. Also, the smoke stacks look like they're of the same mold as the top of the cab, rather than being chromed like the front grille and bumper and tanks. I think his face does come o...

Can't tell from the legs inside the trailer, but they don't look like the new MP-Optimus mold to me. Nice that the matrix will fit in there, though!

the films probably pay for themselves in tickets alone, it wouldn't surprise me if we only get half-a-dozen figs for TF4).
