Hey folks, Harry here.... Just over a year ago I talked with former Studio Suit BigWig Chris Lee about his Production Company, SUPERMEGA MEDIA, about their entire slate of development projects. (CLICK HERE TO READ THAT STORY!) Just recently we heard about the movement of Stephen Norrington being on board the SHANG-CHI project I told you about originally in that report... Well, if the following is real... then it seems that we have the first look at some of the test work done on the Joseph Kahn directed Live Action TRANSFORMERS THE MOVIE that we first heard about a year ago. And loook... IT'S OPTIMUS PRIME!!!! LOOK! Oh Maaaaaaaan, I wanna see this movie baaaaaad. I'm going to be talking to Chris as soon as I'm done with this TV stuff I'm doing this week, to get to the bottom of this... but if that is real.... WAY COOL... If it isn't real, then SuperMega ought to release something that is, cuz if some fanboy doctored this baby up... then Christ... I can't imagine how cool a real FX house would do it!
Harry Here... Is this a Adobe Photoshop fanboy pic using a picture from the latest issue of TOYFARE? I haven't seen that issue yet, but HomerFett claims that's the case in the 2nd Talk Back below! Anybody else confirm this? I've just done a bunch of hunting around online to see what I could see... I don't keep up with the modern TRANSFORMER toys like I did my Transformers of yesteryear... but I managed to find THIS, and from that, I think we can pretty much say that 'Huffer' down below is a 'Bluffer'. I'll keep the story up just so everyone can comment (call me names) and discuss the possibilities of a TRANSFORMER movie, which I will be following up on very soon!
I can't say where I used to work/still work/never worked, but I can tell you this is a legit test from predesign work we did on the live-action Transformers movie project.
I don't know if the movie will ever see the light of day, but it was fun creating the animation tests.
This sucker actually transformed. Here's a still. I'll try to hit you with a few more.
Call me, Huffer."
