Interview with Transformers producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura

Metro.us has an article on the current state of the Transformers franchise on the big screen, in which producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura offers several thoughts about the future.

“We actually have an animated movie in the works that will tell the whole Cybertron mythology. The fans will love that,” diBonaventura teases. “We’re trying to figure out an [Optimus Prime solo movie].”

However, diBonaventura admits that trying to create an Optimus Prime solo movie will be rather tricky.

“It will be hard with Optimus, he is always right, very stoic and is a man of few words … It is kind of like saying, ‘Lets do a movie about Obi-Wan Kenobi?’ But how much is there to say about Obi-Wan? It is not so easy.”

Transformers games delisted on Steam

Destructoid.com has some bad news to report if you’re a Transformers gaming fan:

Today marked the beginning of Steam’s Winter Sale and that means folks are poking around to potentially give older games a second chance now that they’re discounted. With that in mind, I hope you weren’t in the mood for Transformers over the holiday break. You’re going to come up empty-handed.

Transformers: War for CybertronFall of CybertronRise of the Dark Spark, and Devastation are no longer available for purchase on Steam, and that also goes for their DLC packs. What’s more, we’ve lost out on another (albeit much less fondly remembered) game from Platinum: The Legend of Korra.

These games have also vanished from PlayStation Network but, at the time of writing, are still available for purchase on Xbox Live. That said, it’s surely only a matter of time if this is a licensing issue.

It’s a shame Activision didn’t give an advance notice.

Peter Cullen Answers Fan questions about playing Optimus Prime again

Collider.com has posted an interview with the legendary Peter Cullen, the original voice of G1 Optimus Prime, as well as the live action movies, Transformers Prime, and now Titans Return. In addition, Mr. Cullen answers some fan questions from Twitter as well.

What is one thing you look for in an offer to play Optimus Prime that makes you say, “Yes”?

Peter Cullen: It’d be no surprise to say that [it’s] the consistency of the character. As long as the character is the original, then it’s a go. If it varies from it, without good reason or explanation, then I would … I’ve never had to say, “No,” but I would if it didn’t meet those prerogatives.

What are the core values that make up Optimus Prime?

Cullen: Originally, the character stood out for his very demonstrative sense of trustworthiness and leadership qualities that were deeply embedded into this steel body, for one reason or another. It was the qualities of human leadership within that character, and they were all there: Strength, honesty, nobility, trustworthiness, a wonderful sense of courage that is not egotistical courage, it’s more of a giving courage, a caring courage. Those qualities really stood out back then.
