Do people go to the Transformers movies to understand “the human experience,” to see what it truly means to be alive? Probably not, but the four Transformers movies have focused quite a bit on its human protagonists, which hasn’t always satisfied fans of the series. The franchise is expanding with spinoffs and animated movies, which will, once again, follow the point-of-view of the humans.

Aziz Ansari has a new comedy series coming to Netflix and it looks like a great, hilarious look at life in the year 2015. And, perhaps more importantly, Master of None is giving the always funny Parks and Recreation veteran a new platform from which he can brutally honest about the topics that he’s obviously passionate about. Like the state of race and Hollywood and that time he turned down a role in Transformers because of some general racial ickiness associated with the part.
You can read the Aziz Ansari Transformers story (as well as some of his other insightful, sad comments) after the jump.

We already know that Transformers 5 is in the works at Paramount Pictures, and Michael Bay is in early talks to come back and direct yet again, though the filmmaker himself said they’re still working out specifics and nothing is official yet. Yet again it has also been said that this will be the last Transformers movie Bay will direct, but that doesn’t mean the franchise won’t continue after that.
In fact, Hasbro executive vice president and chief content officer Stephen Davis recently partook in the MIP Junior Conference and revealed that the writers room that was assembled over the summer for the Transformers franchise has resulted in a plan for a total of four live-action sequels, which means we’ll get Transformers sequels rolling out for the next 10 years.

The much-discussed Transformers writers room at Paramount has done its work, and there’s now a plan to move forward. That plan may be just a bit more limited than some expected; there is no giant slate of Transformers movies coming down the line. But there is a solid plan for Transformers 5, which Michael Bay will direct next year. (As solid a plan as there can be for a Transformers film, I guess.)
And the animated prequel movie is official. That one will indeed be an origin story focusing on the planet Cybertron. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
As we learned earlier this year, Paramount Pictures is hoping that their Transformers franchise can be turned into a more diverse collection of movies not unlike the Marvel cinematic universe, with spin-offs for characters like Bumblebee rumored to be in development. But before that, Transformers 5 is expected to arrive sometime in 2017, and some story details have just come to light.
Mark Ryan is an actor who voiced Jetfire in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Lockdown in Transformers: Age of Extinction, and while appearing at the Wings and Wheels convention in the United Kingdom, he revealed two possible Transformers 5 plot possibilities that take our human and Autobot heroes in very different directions.

When you’re a kid, and you love something like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob SquarePants, Masters of the Universe, Transformers, Star Wars or whatever, one of the coolest things you can do is have a birthday cake with your favorite characters thrown onto the frosting that is about to make you run around like a monster and give your parents a headache.
However, technology these days has made cake so much more impressive than just transferring an image to a flat sheet cake. There are cakes of all shapes and sizes, and one kid will never forget his sixth birthday, because his father made him an Optimus Prime birthday cake that actually transforms from vehicle form into the robot hero we all know.

While Hasbro’s Transformers are some of the most popular toys on the planet, and have been since the 1980s, the Autobots and Decepticons have yet to roll out in LEGO form. But one LEGO fan has changed that.
LEGO Master Builder and Flickr user Savelsberg has created a LEGO version of the iconic Autobot leader Optimus Prime, who usually turns into a semi-truck. And while you might expect this to just be a LEGO version of the truck form of Optimus Prime, believe it or not, this custom LEGO creation actually turns into the robot form of the Transformer.
