Spinoff Online reveals some advance marketing and hints for the upcoming fifth live-action Transformers film.

The cameras haven’t yet begun to roll on Michael Bay’s fifth “Transformers” film, but the marketing machine is already kicking into high gear.
Paramount Pictures has released a cryptic 19-second promo that suggests we could see the first big reveal for “Transformers: The Last Knight” on Tuesday. The staticky video, which debuted across social media, depicts a torn U.S. State Department document, and is accompanied by a transmission in Morse Code that says, “I’m coming for you May 31.”
In case that’s not ominous enough, the caption on Twitter adds, “Something wicked this way comes.” We can presume whatever is coming next week will be related to the film’s main villain. Could that be Unicron — or is that too much to hope for?
Starring Mark Wahlberg, who will reprise his role as Cade Yeager from “Age of Extinction,” “Transformers: The Last Knight” arrives in theaters June 23, 2017.
“I see London, I see France, I see Blaster’s underpants?”
The Hasbro PULSE website is teasing the upcoming New York Comic Con with a silhouetted image of figures we can expect to be announced at the convention, which opens October 8th.
Will this reveal the previously-rumored Titan Wars/Titans Return subline? Only time will tell.

At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, TFviews was invited to conduct a ten-minute interview with Hasbro Transformers team members Jerry Jivoin (Transformers senior brand director of marketing and toy develoment) and John Warden (Transformers design manager), the only restriction being that we had to publish it verbatim… which is our policy anyway, so of course we agreed. Friend of the site Maradona conducted this interview earlier today at the Hasbro booth in the SDCC exhibit hall. Despite someone screaming in the background, because it wouldn’t be Comic-Con without someone being inappropriately in your space one way or another, TFviews.com presents our interview with the Hasbro Transformers.

Just received news from friend of the site Bikerscout at the Hasbro Transformers panel that Hasbro will be doing not just a Combiner Wars G2 Superion box set, but also a G2 Menasor box set! All 3 box sets – Victorion, G2 Superion, and G2 Menasor – will have a collector card and poster. Long-time fans will remember that the original G2 Menasor was never actually released, only photos have been seen, so this is a great get.
Update: now we’re hearing that Perceptor and Blaster are next up to get the Platinum Edition treatment and are exclusive to Target, possibly as a set.
Even further, Machinima is partnering with Hasbro for a Transformers Combiner Wars animated project.
CW will be getting Scattorshot as a remold of Silverbolt, but combined form will be Betatron and appears there won’t be other Technobots coming with him.
