First Look at Transformers 4 Robot Head

A set of images posted by Andy on the Hot Fudge Detroit forums has revealed the first look at the head of one of the Transformers characters that will appear in Transformers 4. The pictures show a "bearded" pipe smoker that suggests Kup but could also fit for Hound since his vehicle has been on the set. The head on pole trick is used to give actors proper line of sight to the characters for when they are digitally added in post production. The head pics are part of an aerial view set that gives you great look of the action that seems to involve a wedding party. I thought the pics were from Wednesday based on the forum post date but it actually seems to be from today based on a new video from Jerry B. Below are some of the photos, the whole set can be found here. Thanks to Matt B. for the link.

    I say it's fuckin' ugly!!! Jezus ff-ing christ!!! My hopes have dropped to zero level. Why, oh why does Bay AGAIN uses a stupid human looking head for a Transformer, like Q??? Why why why why???
    It's even more human than Q. A human beard and nose and even a pipe???? Really!! Why would a Transformer smoke???? It's hideous as hell!!

    O.k. Sentinal has a beard, but he looked awewsome!!It don't like this one bit!!!
    At least it's a short stick, so it most probably is a small Transformer, maybe the Sonic RS.

    1. There is always going to be one or two tfs that will be ugly lol, but i heard that there are more of those sword/key shaped looking things, which could link to the star saber....... unless they are spares -____-

      Yeah, but this is far beyond ugly, how do the designers come up with this frickin' stupid look??? Was evrybody high, when they design the Autobots? Why does Hasbro aprove of this???

      Everybody is saying it's Hound, since only Bee and Hound were seen on set. It could very well be another Autobot.
      It's part of the 3rd climactid act, so there probably will be more TF, it very well could be someone else.
      It's horrible looking!! If it is Hound, Bay ruined the character already, it will never be as cool as Ironhide.

    3. Martinus Prime, i am in the same boat as you, i really don't like it either. But you have to remember it could be one of those retro cars we saw in earlier films sets, in other words this could most likely be Kup! I highly doubt that Hound being a kick ass Oshkosh Defense vehicle will have head like that and definetly not Bumbleebee either!!

    4. True, but since Hound is a camo colour his head suits it. Meaning because he has pipe and he is old he looks like those old cunts in those war movies today, to show toughness, if you know what i mean.

    5. I know some of you (maybe myself too) don't like Autobots having so human looking faces, but maybe it's a trick in order to make Autobots and Decepticons more separate factions. If any Autobot would have more beast or machine like appearance, would any human in that reality easily consider trust that bot sentient? I don't think so.

    6. I mean 'sentient in same type as humans'.

    7. I just wish Bay can focus more on the Autobots and their characterization rather then making all about the humans the movie is called Transformers so he should focus more on then and their involvement in the film not the humans we deal with humans everyday in our life so why not focus on the conflicts between the Autobots and deceptions and their characterization in the film.

  3. Looks like santa! Ha. This guy is so fitting as kik but it looks like hound is behind that face. I only hope he has kups voice or characterisrics if it's going down like that. P.s woooo. Thanks for giving me credit you rock

  4. Come on, we all know Hound, based on his personality this could very well be him.....would be cool if it were Kup but whatever.

    2. Graham, where was this confirmed? Just curious. Do you have a link?

    3. The head is not confirmed to be Hound. But the Oshkosh Medium Tactival Vehicle is confirmed to be Hound by Bay himself.

  12. I think Bay is trying to prove a point. That point being that the movie going public will lap up whatever crap he throws at us. And he's probably right. This piece of shit will probably make a billion. Hell, it could be a Dinobot head. Caveman beard etc. I mean, the wreckers had a mullet, a beard, etc. Sentinel and Jetfire had facial hair. I don't believe that Bay sees his films (Transformers franchise, TMNT) as a chance to make a childish cartoon live up to it's serious and gritty potential. I think he's just making multimillion dollar cartoons with the scripts and story to match. Its just sad. There are writers and directors out there that could tell these stories with heart and taste for a fraction of the budget. Just a tragedy.

    1. I couldn't agree more. When the first movie came out, I didn't have any big expectations and I was actually positively surprised. But since ROTF, what you said above sums up the way I feel about these movies perfectly. It's so sad, because when you see what they are able to do now with CGI, these movies really have so much potential. And then it's just completely ruined with ridiculous characterizations and awful scripts.

  14. I totally agree, I want to see true mythology and real good stories and I don't like talking about other movies but even though Pacific Rim wasn't a smash the robots were bad ass and the cgi was awesome and with the Transformers world these bots should be the most powerfull and awesome bots we have ever ever seen and it should be pretty impossible to kill, instead with Bay they just crumble by a basic machine gun. Some bots are powerfull and cool looking like Optimus, Bee, Ironhide, Barricade, soundwave, Ratchet all look cool but Q looked totally stupid, Sentinal looked like an old man in a spacesuit just awfull, I just think he goes off into the abyss somewhere in Bayland. But if this a bot I give up, GOOD GREIF!!!

    1. This is grimlocks face, as i to have a very reliable source, on set! Stay tuned for some new spoilers also i have been told that it is not a sword but one of 3 cybetronian keys!

      Delete
    2. GET STUFFED!?! THIS CANNOT BE GRIMLOCK! I AM 100% SURE BAY IS NOT THAT DUMB ENOUGH TO MAKE THAT HEAD A DINOBOT! I hate to say it but, I think it could be Hound, but I prefer it to be Kup!

      Delete
    3. Let me guess the cybertronian keys are human sized so the main protagonist can carry them around just like the Allspark and the Matrix of leadership that Sam can hold and the then when the Autobots hold them their small like The Matrix? I thinks that sucks the movie is called Transformers not The humans alliance with the TransFormers so why keep focusing on the humans when the actors won't want to play the characters and then get rid of a female protagonist and bring in a new one and don't even mention why happened to her, their not even going to explain what happened to Sam and carly so why bring in more human lead characters when they can focus on the main characters since the beginning the TransFormers!

  15. Get the hell out of here, Grimlocks face my ass that's santa claus. If that's Grimlock Bay has sank into goofy doofyness again. Maybe we will see Simmon's hairy ass again and balls a hangin and bots a humpin.

    1. Its not joke, the dinobots are one of the oldest transformers, bay has taken that into account, this is his version not yours, did u think they would look more like bumblebee, or sentinel? Like i said i know a stage hand and that is grimlock you will see! He has also seen and i can confirm lockdown is one of the new descepticons

  22. Remember that even though the first film had most normal looking transformers, it's box office was less than ROTF or DOTM (despite those human-like faces)

  23. Not to much heard today but i was told the black trucks nickname is "mags" and a few more faces should be surfacing, there was a face on the boat a couple days ago it appeared to be prime and also they nicknamed the boat " sea spray". Si what ive heard cant confirm new decepticon bruticus new main bad guy!

    1. Bruticus i think would not be a good main villian...and i think it will be someone more within a leadership role for example all main villians in all tfs are all leaders, megatron, sentinel, the fallen.

    2. I cant confirm it yet another decepticon " overkill". Alt mode sports car not sure which one!

    3. Menasoar. Not bruticus some combination of decepticon drones! I can confirm new main bad guy!

    4. Well if they call the black truck "mags", then that is a rather heavy indicator that it's going to be Ultra Magnus, isn't it?
