Open Letter From SM IMAX for Transfans

// heres a flash news from our blogger friend and TFPH compadre.

posted by



I just got the reply from SM IMAX management regarding the Transformers movie in IMAX and here it is:

Hi! Good Day!

Thank you so much for the kind interest...In regards to Transformer being shown to IMAX Theatre, unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to show it soonest...

Anyhow, we'll keep you posted..

For your kind info and understanding.

Hoping to see you soon here at IMAX Theatre

Have a great day ahead!

fatima san diego

theatre manager

I want to apologize for the info I released in my blog regarding the Transformers IMAX experience. As a responsible blogger I should at least confirmed it to the theater itself if it is true. I know that hundreds (or even thousands) of Filipino Transfans become very excited of the news I post here in my blog. But unfortunately Transformers will not be shown in local IMAX theaters soon.

Again my apologies. But still hoping Transformers will soon hit our local IMAX theaters. Let us cross our fingers and continue to hope.


TF Toy Review: TF Movie Scorponok

review by : chrysophylax

discuss it here

[image] [image] [image]
Name: Scorponok
Series: Transformers Movie (Deluxe)
Packaging: Deluxe Carded
Release: 2007
Manufactured By: Hasbro (Takara as MD-04)
Variations: Repackaged in Desert Attack boxed set with Qatar SOCCENT Special Forces mini-figures
Accessories: None
Notes: NA

Toy Review by: chrysophylax

Scorponok, as he appeared in Michael Bay's Transformers movie is a robot scorpion. Scorponok is the only Decepticon in the movie that did not transform although the toy does; the tech specs state that Scorponok prefers his alternate mode. Screenwriter Roberto Orci indicated that this Scorponok is conceptually closer to the Beast Wars character than the original; he does bear a noticeable resemblance to the McDonald's Transmetal Scorponok figure. He is symbiotically related to Blackout.

Alternate Mode:
Robot Scorpion similar to Zoids Death Stinger.

Not much. Just swing legs down, flip face down, swing arms down and stand.

Robot Mode:
Standing robotic scorpion


The scorpion mode is as accurate as you can get without becoming overloaded with detail and sharp edges and small parts which would make transforming an impossibility. The robot mode is obviously a mere afterthought since, after all, this is Transformers so the toy needs to transform. As usual with Hasbro's offerings of late, the toy is cast in dull metallic plastic and does not evoke the realistic die-cast metal feel of Transformers of old. The toy has an action feature that allows it to spin its drill claws like in the movie when the toy is rolled on the ground. Another action feature is the ability to attach to the Voyager class Blackout toy and again, activate the drill caws. The third action feature is the spring loaded stinger at the tip of the tail which allows it to shoot forward as in the movie.

The Score:

Skill Level: 3 Advanced Conversion
Alternate Mode: 3
Robot Mode: 1
Gimmicks: 4

Overall: 4 out of 5 Robot Points

Special thanks to...
My girlfriend JDR who bought this toy for me and helped me with the photos.

Back Track: Your most memorable episode?

Topic : Post your your most memorable G1 episode in this thread, that you can still recall and give your insight before & now.

Heer0san : Siyempre, my most memorable eps are the 1st apperance of the Dinobots (SOS Dinobots), then Dinobots first fought Devastator (Heavy Metal War)

Soundwave : My Favorite Episode..."The Key to Vector Sigma"

magnusjam : The introduction of the Aerialbots & Stunticons. ;D

This is the part where Megatron stole the key on there way back to Earth, and the only way they could activate Vector Sigma is having Alphatrion "hack" his way.

Unfortunately it cost A3 a price by loosing his physical body, and merging with Vector Sigma himself.

... Thought I recall it in detail but that particular scene I remember.

zaptheman : When they introduced Jetfire / Skyfire.

I guess that episode really stuck because it's the first time you saw someone actually switch sides because of personal conflict.

I wish I had a Classics Jetfire.

RandimuS PrimE : My favorite and very memorable episode would have to be the one where Optimus Prime tumbled the side of a cliff. Then, after that, he had a hard time transforming and I remember him being stubborn and didn't want any help from his fellow Autobots. That was one of the earlier episodes (from season 1 I think....) And it really tells us what kind of a leader Optimus is.

popazrael : introduction of the dinobots ! aahahha

How about you dear blog readers???


Photorama : topnotch97 corner!


Cobra Commander: So what's this I heard you wouldn't be coming back for the movie sequel?

Jazz: Whaaa??!??! Really!?!? Sons of %$&^!!! I'm so gonna kill Michael Bay!!! That b$st@rd!!!

REVIEW : Transformers Spotlight: Optimus Prime

Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels
Author:Simon Furman & Don Figueroa
TransFormers Spolight: Optimus Prime is a one-shot featuring the face of The Transformers. The Autobot Commander himself Optimus Prime. After the Escalation series Optimus Prime ponders about his future and he took Ark 32 to find someone who could listen to --Omega Supreme!

Filipino US based Don Figueroa does is again providing the art & cover. He has been sort of partly designed most of the characters that came out as a toy... TF Classics Jetfire, <="" /b="">, and TF War Within Megatron to name a few.

The story is action packed with Optimus Prime and Omega Supreme in action against the gestalt pretenders Monstructor.

Teletran Reports...

1.) Monstructor is a G1 combiner composed of five monster pretenders.

2.) Omega Supreme is huge so is Monstructor but in toy form the monster is as big as any Deluxe size figure.

3.) Features the six pages preview of Devastation after Escalation.

If your a big fan of Optimus Prime this ones for you, but the action is a bit short. It could have been a two-part mini series.
