“DOTM”: Interview with Brian Goldner, “Foundation” #1 Preview, and TOYS!

{mosimage}Talk about your link fest regarding Dark of the Moon!

First up, MTV interviews Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner about whether Transformers movie series could continue without director Michael Bay. Goldner's response included, "Michael has got this incredible visual sense for showing you things you've never seen before. Perhaps he'll change his mind, perhaps he won't, but I'd rather put out this movie first then cross that bridge at some point." He also acknowledges the problems that were part of Revenge of the Fallen.

Second, IGN UK has a 5-page preview of Foundation #1 for those that haven't picked it up yet! Line art by Andrew Griffith (who has also uploaded the lines-only pages at his deviantArt gallery), colors by Priscilla Tramontano ("Spotlight: Metroplex"), and story by John Barber ("Sector 7")! You can sound off at our thread on Foundation #1!

Third, toys and merchandise! YaHobby.com has pictures of Voyager Optimus Prime, backybao of ACToys.net has photos of Mechtech Ironhide, and Yahoo! Japan auction seller nihaohuwen has an auction featuring Deluxe Thundercracker! You can sound off at our thread regarding Thundercracker here!
