Movie News: "Transformers The Last Knight" TV Spots #1 & 2

It's 2017 and this summer the Transformers will be taking to the big screen once again! Following last year's trailer reveal there are now two television spots getting the word out there about "The Last Knight". Both of these feature footage we have seen already but they focus more on some of the themes. The first focuses on Optimus Prime's (seeming) turn as an antagonist. The second focuses on what seems to be Cybertron coming directly into Earth's orbit. Check out both TV spots in the embeds below.

Video: Official "Titans Return" Voyager Class Optimus Prime vs Megatron commercial

"Titans Return" is forging ahead, selling out wave after wave of figures and tempting fans with news of upcoming releases. As part of its marketing for the line Hasbro has released a new commercial "More than Meets the Eye" which features Voyager Class Optimus Prime fighting Megatron (with the help of Sawback!). This commercial doesn't just feature toys, it also has some CG animation reminiscent of the G2 commercial animation (but better of course). Check it out below:
