Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About Transformers

IT HAS BEEN A DECADE

Happy 10 year anniversary! The first of the film franchise was released in 2007!

 

OPTIMUS PRIME IS ALSO EEYORE

The voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen also voices Eeyore in numerous Winnie the Pooh shows and movies and a load of other cartoon characters!

 

 

FANS GOT TO SUGGEST LINES IN TRANSFORMERS (2007)

Director Michael Bay used the official movie website to welcome fans to suggest lines of dialogue to be used in the first of the film series. The chosen line was “Freedom is the right of all sentient beings”.

 

REAL SOLDIERS WERE FEATURED IN TRANSFORMERS (2007)

Michael Bay worked with various branches of the US military to feature real soldiers and aircraft in the movie.

 

 

OPTIMUS PRIME DIES A WHOLE LOT

The hero and leader of the Autobots died approximately 25 times across all the different versions of film, comics and television.

 

BUMBLEBEE WAS A VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE

Contrary to what we see in the film series, Bumblebee was actually most famously a Volkswagen Beetle, instead of a Chevrolet Camaro. After the film was released, Chevrolet sold an astounding 140,000 Camaro and a 10% spike in the yellow model!

 

 

THE NAME MEGATRON WAS DEEMED TOO SCARY

Back in the 80s when the Transformers toy line was first launched, toy manufacturer Hasbro thought the name Megatron sounded too scary given their target audience was children. Hasbro was later convinced by the argument that the very idea of a villain was to be scary.
