Fans of the blockbuster Transformers series directed by Michael Bay will be ecstatic at the news that a fifth instalment of the franchise entitled Transformers: The Last Knight is in the pipeline. That exciting news is somewhat diminished, though, as there is a long wait – until June 2017 – before the shape-shifting robots return to the big screen. So what can fans do to get their Transformers fix until then, and ensure they are fully prepared for the new feature?

Play games

For a great way to enjoy Transformers and reminisce over the old cartoons there is a retro slot game called Transformers: Battle for Cybertron available at online casinos such as bgo where players get a 200% deposit bonus, Pocket Fruity which offers a 100% welcome bonus when users deposit at least £10, or Slotsup where the game can first be tried for free. Fans who enjoy playing with characters such as Grimlock and Shockwave can take their pick of other entertaining online games as bgo offers a vast selection of slot games based on many hit films such as Hulk and Ghostbusters. Indeed, playing slots with themes from blockbusters is a great way to enjoy the music, characters, and cut scenes while waiting for the next franchise instalment.

Research the new film

Transformers buffs may also want to find out as much as they possibly can about the new film so they know exactly what to expect. So far, little is known about the plot, except that it will be continuing from Transformers: Age of Extinction in the new trilogy that has moved away from Shia LaBeouf’s character’s story arc. Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci will reprise their roles in this feature. Michael Bay is directing it yet again, so viewers can expect to see a ton of elaborate explosions and special effects, but the man behind all the other Transformers films to this point has stated that this one will be his last.  

Excitingly, Paramount Pictures have released some images of new Transformers that will feature in The Last Knight. These include Hot Rod, Bumblebee’s brother-in-arms, Drift, an honourable Samurai, and Sqweeks, a brand new and original character without comic book origins.

Paint figurines

To constantly remind yourself about the new film and also for a rather enjoyable pastime, you could start decorating your house with Transformers figurines.

The figurines can be purchased from places like Games Workshop along with all the paints and mini brushes required to fill in all the minute details. Not only is this a great hobby, you can also customise the Transformers in whichever colours you prefer, and create your own range of Autobots or Decepticons for your household display.

Along with these awesome ways to spend your time there is, of course, always the option to re-watch all the other films. You could become fully immersed in Bay’s robot world and learn how to imitate the likes of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron. By the time the new film is released – on 23 June 2017 – you will be fully prepared to out-geek all your friends.
