The master of metallic mayhem becomes available for the first time in The Fight this week, so we went behind the scenes with his makers to see what info they can make available about Megatron!
All Hail Megatron! That pretty much sums up the Decepticon leader’s ambition, and his minions’ fear-induced feelings. Pity those that stand in the way of his eternal struggle against his sworn enemy Optimus Prime.
Hot Rod made quite the splash when he debuted in Transformers: The Last Knight and he’s looking to do the same when he enters the fray in Forged To Fight. Let’s get the scoop on the undercover protector. NOTE: If you haven’t seen the movie yet, there may be some spoilers below so continue at your own risk;)
About Hot Rod:
Long undercover on Earth with his brother in arms, Bumblebee, Hot Rod is a powerful and agile warrior with a unique Time Bubble Cannon that definitely packs a punch.
The Decepticon turned Autobot Drift has been hanging around in the shadows on New Quintessa for a while, but now he formally enters the fray. Let’s talk with some of the people that brought Drift to life in Forged To Fight – Francois Dinh Quang, Ryan Boulanger, and Nick Williams.
Though some may question Drift’s loyalty to the Autobots, there’s no denying his dedication to his “sensei” Optimus Prime. Forged to wield his powerful swords, this samurai of a bot is all business when it’s time to swing or fling his blades.
Version 2.0 will be available June 14th with brand new content, visual upgrades, and fixes!
Derek Dishes Dirt on Prowl’s Animations
CUZ: When animating Prowl in his vehicle mode, did you look to famous cop cars for inspiration…you know like Starsky and Hutch’s muscle car, Kojak’s classic undercover sedan, or maybe Scooby’s Mystery Machine?
He may look like your friendly neighborhood cop on patrol, but check under the hood and he’s 100% military-trained police on a mission to serve and protect. He’s a trusted strategist and friend of Optimus Prime, but he’s decidedly less friendly to those who don’t follow protocol…his protocol.
The much beloved Soundwave is joining the Fight mix in a big way this week. Forged to Fight’s Creative Director, Cuz Parry, thought it might be cool to get some insights on the sonic warrior from some of the dev team who worked on him – Piero Herrera, Nick Williams, and Louie Hinayo.
