The crew of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has taken to social media to show off some of the vehicles in the movie. Announced in June 2021, it will take place in the 90’s, blending story elements from the popular CGI animated series. The photos show some expanded G1 members. It is slated for release in June 2022.

Returning to the action and spectacle that first captured moviegoers around the world 14 years ago with the original Transformers, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons. Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, the film arrives in theatres June 24, 2022.

Bumblebee has gotten yet another makeover as an older Chevrolet Camaro that’s been customized for off-roading with all-terrain tires and ram bar. It looks like Bumblebee has been redesigned for some major desert action scenes. Two other characters that have new looks are Mirage, who is now a Porsche 964, and Wheeljack, a vintage VW Bus. Optimus Prime has his traditional appearance seen in the original series. Arcee is returning as a Ducati 916.

The Autobots will be facing off against a new set of villains. The Terrorcons will be introduced. Scourge has become a black Mack truck. There’s also an unidentified orange GMC Topkick tow truck. There’s also Nightbird, a G1 character that was created by a human scientist and abducted and enhanced by Decepticons. She’s a R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R.

Fans of the robots in disguise got their first look at the cavalcade of cool custom cars that will make up both the Autobots and Decepticons in the upcoming next installment of the franchise, Transformers 7. Last week, director Steven Caple Jr. and actor Anthony Ramos shared images of the collection of vehicles that will act as the Autobots and Decepticons in the upcoming prequel to Michael Bay’s original 2007 action hit.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
