Does Transformers Rise of the Beasts Have Mid or End-Credits Scene?

Does Transformers: Rise of the Beasts have a mid-credits scene? Yes. 
Does Transformers: Rise of the Beasts have an end-credits scene? No. 

Figure cut to the chase on that as every time I try to look up the answer for a film, the article buries the answer. There is no scene at the end of the credits, there is one early into the credits after the directed, producer and cast credits but before black screen with the long scroll of credits begin. So technically not "middle" but lack of a better term. So just have to hold that bathroom break a few extra minutes and good to go.

Transformers Is Coming to Fortnite

If your a fan of the video game Fortnite, then is probably good news as Transformers will be part of upcoming season 3 of the Battle Royale mode. Currently the only Transformers related item revealed is an Optimus Prime skin based on his Rise of the Beasts.

The skin can be collected at tier 100 for the season 3 battle pass when it starts on June 9th. No other Transformers related Fortnite connent has been revealed but I wouldn't be the least surprised if a few more character skins are in the works with Bumblebee topping that list.

Sample Reviews for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

Critic reviews are coming in for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts which premieres in just a couple of days. The overall score from most can best be summed up as "meh". It is landing as better then most of the Bayverse Transformers films but not as good as Bumblebee. The Rotten Tomatoes average if currently at 56% with a goal of 70% being preferred since most critics will take 20 points off just for being a CGI heavy tentpole movie designed only to entertain. What I pay attention for in popcorn films is the audience score and so far there are no results in that regard. Below are few quotes pulled from a few reviews. A hardcore example of this is the Guardian review below where its clear the critic had no business being assigned this film.

If your interested in a Transformers fan's take on the movie, check out the review from Feris O. who has often contributed to this blog - Facebook | Twitter| Instagram
His take aligns with what many of the critics are saying citing weak story but good action.

The Guardian (1/5)
As obligatory human Noah Diaz (Anthony Ramos, looking like he’s just walked into a party and realized he doesn’t know anyone) stumbles through a cosmic clash between opposing hunks of dinged-up CGI... It behooves a viewer to set their suspension of disbelief at a generously accommodating looseness in dealing with a film featuring Airazor, the extraterrestrial cybernetic eagle that speaks in the voice of Michelle Yeoh... An unspoken aside of “who cares?” punctuates every line of dialogue, most nearly audible in those about the glowing rock that’s going to stop planet-sized monster Unicron (voiced by Colman Domingo and who has nothing to do with unicorns)... So if this is all stupid crap for overgrown and actual children, then why bother the undiscerning with anything above the bare minimum?
