Harbx.com has an alleged first look at what the robot mode for the Decepticon Barricade will look like.
Missed this earlier, but the Variety weblog has some photos of AIT/PlanetLar guru Larry Young on the set of the pilot for the series.
Creator Mark Steven Johnson spoke at length to Newsarama about plans for the HBO series. "First, it is not decided whether I'm going to direct it, if Howard's going to direct it or if we're going to have someone else direct it," Johnson said. "That was a bit of jumping the gun. Howard and I were talking about that again this morning. We're not sure yet. We have to get that far. This is all still preliminary. I still have to write the pilot and if we go ahead and shoot it, there's a chance I might do it or Howie might do it or someone else might do it. People assumed that since Howie has done a lot of television. But that hasn't been decided yet. Again TV is different from film in so many different ways and Howie's experience with HBO is that he won an award doing a 'Tales From the Crypt' for them, which a lot of people don't know."
QUIET ON THE SET
Slow news day today, eh? That's why we can't do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos -- they're all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, "What do you mean your sister's dating somebody who works for Miles Millar?" The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web's rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we've got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu (web site, MySpace blog) saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and "enough talk -- let's go make with the 'biff' and the 'pow' already."
