In Short: After five films, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT closes the book on a decade on cinematic adventures from Michael Bay and Co., but blasts a door wide open for more Autobots & Decepticons yet to come...

It's been ten years since Michael Bay launched TRANSFORMERS into the live-action realm, his Steven Spielberg-produced 2007 epic arriving in theaters more than two decades after the animated classic, TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE hit theater screens back in 1986. As a kid who grew up on the original series and Hasbro toys that started with 1984's "Generation One," my excitement for Bay's film series was a given - and for the past decade I've been there, capping it off by attending the U.S. premiere of TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, the fifth film in the series, and what's being touted as "The Final Chapter" for Bay's run on the franchise.

I still can't believe that we're a decade into Paramount Pictures' TRANSFORMERS franchise. For me, it started in an era pre-kids, and because of the first TRANSFORMERS movie, I ended up becoming a part of that history by voicing several characters in a short that aired on the late G4 Attack of the Show (check this IMDb listing for Starscream and scroll down - you'll find me). Now, I'm raising a pair of TRANSFORMERS fans, and judging from the new International Trailer for TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, the latest film from Michael Bay just might be the best in the series - a chapter that completely changes things.

It's hard to believe that it's already been ten years since Michael Bay's first TRANSFORMERS film hit theaters, but this summer the adventure continues when Paramount Pictures releases Transformers: The Last Knight on June 23, 2017. A new film means spinning things back to where it all began with some new toys from Hasbro, and two of the new ones just made their debut at the Hong Kong Toy Fair. Check out two beautiful new versions of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee below!

2017 is going to be a massive year at the movies, and on June 23rd it's the Autobots vs. Decepticons once more as Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters. The fifth film in the live-action franchise based on the iconic Hasbro toys finds filmmaker Michael Bay back at the helm with a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Isabella Moner, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro. As a huge fan of the Transformers overall, this one is one of my most-anticipated films for the coming year, and tonight Paramount Pictures unleashed the first teaser trailer. Check it out...

Whenever The Rock Daughters spy a yellow and black Chevrolet Camaro on the streets, they always shout "there's Bumblebee!" For awhile following the release of Michael Bay's first TRANSFORMERS movie in 2007 (which pre-dated our parenthood by two years), you could actually buy an officially-licensed TRANSFORMERS Edition Camaro through Chevy, and over the years several of the Autobot-badged rides have been spotted not far from Rock Father HQ. With 2017's TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, perhaps a new package will be available for purchase, as Bay has teased Bumblebee's latest version, a 2016 Camaro, possibly based on the ZL1 we saw at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year. Keeping with the classic yellow, the new 'Bee features deeper black accents spread across the wheels, hood and a new ground effects package.

Well, this was unexpected... two TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES stories going back-to-back in one day. While the first focused on a new toy sub-line from the folks at Playmates Toys, the next bit of news comes from Paramount Pictures, who've just released the first teaser trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS. While we loved the toys based on the 2014 live-action film here at Rock Father HQ, I was really mixed on the film itself (reviewed here), though I've grown more fond of it in repeat viewings over time. For the second film in the current series, it certainly looks as though the filmmakers have taken into account much of what fans have been hoping to see - with characters like Bebop & Rocksteady, Casey Jones and Baxter Stockman getting the live-action treatment. Additionally, we just might be getting the best film version of the "Shellraiser" (previewed here) ever seen. Check this out...
