Optimus Prime

Transformers fans rejoice!  This week sees the release of the long awaited new film Transformers: The Last Knight and expectations are suitably high!

Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it’s up to the unlikely alliance of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English lord (Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock) to save the world.

Any other plot details are being kept under lock and key but trailers of Optimus Prime fighting Bumblebee has got everyone talking, why are they at war with each other? Could the leader of the Autobots have turned to the dark side?  There have been multiple tag lines used on various promotional material for this new film such as ‘Rethink your heroes’, ‘Every legend hides a secret’ and ‘For One World To Live, The Other Must Die’.  These cryptic clues have got us very excited and we can’t wait to find out the true story!

It’s been reported that this is the last Transformers film that Michael Bay will direct and also rumoured to be following him out the door is Mark Wahlberg, so will the next film follow a new direction?  Either way, Transformers and Michael Bay go hand in hand so enjoy his last film in the franchise while you can!  He recently said in an interview “I’ve done it enough, and I’ve had a great time doing it. I’m going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you’re ahead, you know.” which all sounds positive for an action packed film!

Transformer fans unite! To celebrate the release of our amazing new and exclusive Transformers clothing, we’ve been searching the interwebs high and low for some amazing nuggets of retro information about the coolest Alien robots around. We just love to keep you clued up huh! :)

For over three decades, our lives have been influenced, impacted, transformed by giant robots from the far away planet Cybertron.  For them, it has been millennia of civil war, fights and trouble, but for us, it has been decades (scary!) of watching, playing and loving these iconic Autobots and Decepticons.

However you came to love these guys, sit back and enjoy our perhaps slightly hidden treasures of some of the most iconic retro characters ever!

1. According to Bob Budiansky, the writer for the Marvel Comics series, Hasbro originally thought the name Megatron sounded too villainous. Budiansky pointed out that was the point and Hasbro went along with the suggestion. Thank you Bob. The evil Decepticon could be known as nothing else!2. Fans of the cartoon Robotech found an odd similarity between the Valkyrie jet-transforming-robot suits and the action figure of Autobot Skyfire. In Japan, they used the same model to produce both toys. In the cartoon, the Decepticon-turned Autobot giant jet didn’t look like the alien-killing Robotech vehicles. But when kids received Skyfire the toy, many little heads were scratched.

3. The Transformers began with the 1980s Japanese toy lines Microman and Diaclone.
Diaclone4. Optimus Prime’s original name before he became Autobot leader was Orion Pax in the television series. Orion is the mythological Greek hunter while Pax is Latin for peace. In Latin, Optimus means “best”; “Prime” comes from primus, meaning “first”.

5. The first Transformer to appear on the series was Wheeljack.

6. Optimus Prime was killed during The Transformers: The Movie but came back to life for the episode Dark Awakening and returned for good in the episode The Return of Optimus Prime.

7. Transformer toys also invented the aspect of giving their Toys Trading card stat cards which kids could trade and collect. Even the boxes these toys came from were collectibles.

8. In Japan, the first Transformers series was called “Fight! Super Robot Life Form Transfomers”.

9. Bumblebee was a VW Beetle in the original series but he’s a Camaro in the live-action Transformers movie.

Bumblebee VW10. One man, actor Frank Welker, voiced more than half of the original decepticons.

Voices for Megatron and Optimus Prime
