Transformers 4 Box Art Confirm Dinobots

While the toys themselves have not started to leak, thanks to Weibo's @HarryHuo we have images of the box art that will be used for the voyager boxes when they are released (probably sometime in May). The images show Transformers: Age of Extinction's version of Optimus Prime on the outside with the inside insert depicting Grimlock, Swoop (or Strafe) and Slag (or Slug) in their Dinobot modes on the inside. The Hasbro name leaks from a few months ago indicates the Dinobots are probably getting new names (likely for copyright/trademark reasons). This is further supported by new TF4 toy listings (below) on Wal-Mart's online store. Thanks to Feris O. for the heads-up.

    1. I don't think so. Name Slug is used by one of the Dinobots in AoE and could it ever some Other thing Than Triceratops?

    1. Dragon? It looks more like a T-rex and it's probably Grimlock.

    2. If you look back to the supposed leak pic of prime riding a robot "dinosaur" it looks nothing like the trex looking grimlock in the pic above. The first pics look nothing like that ones head along with how strange circles are around different parts of different bots in said picture...thaking

  5. Look at the pics you can see that maybe every dino bot comes with a piece of the weird looking one thakingdbb

  6. Guaranteed they don't have robot modes. I'd be surprised if the did. If they are big enough for Prime to ride, why would they need bot modes?

  7. I don't get the possibility of name changes for the Dinobots....they all had their original name when they appeared in Transformers Fall of Cybertron....so what's the difference between using the names for the video game and this movie?

  8. I really would like to praise you for writing such a fabulous article

  9. According to the toy-list there are 6 Dinobots and maybe one on the Decepticon side, so 7. Grimlock, Strafe, Slug, Scorn, Slash and Snarl for the Autobots and with the Decepticons Wolf. And here we see only 5 dino-modes so it's possible that the spinnosaurus is Wolf since it's some kind of an Egyptian t-rex, and we lack 2 more dinos, Snarl and Slash or Scorn.

    ReplyDelete
  10. However toy list aside we don't know just how many dinobots are actually in the movie nor how many will still be alive by the time the movie ends. I am willing to bet at least one dinobot dies by movie end.

  11. there are 4 not three dinos

    look at the images

  13. I personally am not down with the name Strafe , but I know that is something that Bay would like. I prefer Swoop better and I'm not sure the general public will know what strafe means unless their gamers or military people. Helk I didn't know what it was until I started playing Battlefield, but maybe I'm wrong though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Personally, and while I am inclined to agree with you, I don't think too many will give a thought to what it means outside of saying oh that's a dinobot. Like you I didn't know what it meant (or cared) till military games.

    Damn, they look awesome, especially the Triceratops Slug/Slag! And yes, bc it's a fast paced film, they probably went for mostly fast dino's. Besides the Grimlock T-Rex, Slug/Slag's Triceratops will be the strongest Dinobot.
    And I'm fine with a T-Rex, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Velociraptor and Pteradactyl as the Donobots.
    I also bet some of them will die at the end of the movie. I hope only Grimlock (and maybe Slug) survive, the other ones can die as far as I'm concerned. We can't have them all back in TF5. Or have the other Dinobots send back in space.

    1. Velociraptor has different nose than the raptor we now see. By the way it's too small. I would sat it's either Deinonychus or Utahraptor.

  16. I am kind of thinking the dinobots are going to start off neutral creatures (in a musuem perhaps or dino theme park) then the decepticons will kill one of them and they side with the autobots for revenge. No way all the dinobots are going to live unfortunately.

  17. Asteroid that killed the dinosaurs was Unicron's "planet" form. Asteroid the size of Rhode Island this time, instead of planet sized. He's "dead", Primus killed him 65 million years ago.

    Dinobots: The "transformers" that Unicron's body was populated with, similar to Primus' cybertronians. Some of them followed their God to Earth millions of years ago, reformatted to anything they could still find alive here when they found where he landed, but went offline since their source of life was gone.

    Death of Primus in Earth's atmosphere as well as the dissemination of All Spark Energy from the first movie let loose tons of energy.

    Some of this energy is captured in relics, the "Matrixes" of the Dinobots and where their life source comes from. The relics were empty since the Dinobots had been dormant so long. They're essentially Unicron's version of the Matrix, able to revive dead unicronians.

    This is what Wahlberg's character finds, one of those relics, and it's active now.

    Meanwhile, the Autobots have been forced into hiding by a rogue human organization, which is being supplied and aided by Lockdown.

    Other relics have been found by the evil human character and funneled to China, where they were used to re-animate/imbue sparks to Chinese created transformers, which are pieced together from what remained of the Decepticons. Lockdown has been key in aiding the human to do this as well as locating the relics. These Chinese Decepticons are tainted with Unicron's energy and extra powerful - as well as having the ability to combine. Each is armed with a relic, and the relics combine to form Menasor's weapon as well. The program to revive these Decepticons is portrayed as being the responsibility of the evil rogue American businessman (since China would sensor the film if the actual Chinese government were portrayed as responsible.)

    Wahlberg's final relic is lost to Lockdown, and it is used to re-animate what is left of Megatron's body. It is Megatron's personal weapon, but he's Galvatron now.

    Prime and the Autobots have been on a hunt as well, locating the original recipients of Unicron's energy, long lifeless, aboard Lockdown's ship. Lockdown had located them but not revived them as they were not Decepticons and obviously extremely powerful. Prime uses the Matrix to re-animate them and because of this they are feral but not evil. The plant/warehouse where the Decepticons were being re-animated is revealed to be Lockdown's ship, cloaked, which Prime disables when he boards it, keeping it from transforming and taking off.

    Big battle ensues. Galvatron leads the Stunticons against Prime, the Autobots and the Dinobots.

    Movie ends with the Decepticons defeated but not destroyed, and Prime decides to leave the planet, as he realizes that the presense of the Matrix and the release of Allspark energy revived more than the Dinobots - Primus' old enemy is stirring deep in the ocean where he's been buried for millions of years, not completely dead, and Prime leaves on Lockdown's ship to locate what is left of Cybertron to see if he can use the matrix to revive Primus. The End.

  19. Well, I guess we'll find out just how close 'anonymous' synopsis comes to the movie. I've decided to wait until some of you have seen the movie before I see it. IF Sideswipe is in the movie, I want to know that he survives before I go see it. Just as I cannot watch Jazz or Ironhide die on my dvds, NO WAY will I be able to sit through the whole movie if Sideswipe doesn't survive. It may be petty, but I'd like to see Bots other than Bee and Optimus actually survive. Especially the "Second In Command" Bot.

    ReplyDelete
  20. In case that is a very poorly done "leaked" draft can the blog owner please remove it?

    So if Sideswipe is in the movie and if he does die does that mean you are never going to see the movie? There has been plenty of bots that have survived. Several main characters and several supporting characters. Dead and Alive. Personally I don't care if he dies or not. He was not well done in the movie enough to make me care.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'll wait to see it until it's out in dvd, if Sideswipe doesn't make it. He is my favorite Transformer and I have zero desire to watch him die. At least on dvd i can skip over something like that. Call it petty if you want, but that's my own personal preferance.

      That's not (only) petty, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Why do you want to watch the movie in the first place? Who's gonna skip over a scene in a movie, you even haven't seen?? It's not like it's a relative or a friend you lose.
      Are you gonna cry if Sideswipe is gonna die??

      I really don't get it. You're a TF fan right? Then why don't you wanna just see the movie (in the theatre)?
      A TF movie is something you have to experience in the cinema! In all it's glory and bad-ass surround sound, thundering through the cinema!

    2. Considering I did not ask for your opinion, you can take your rude attitude and shove it little boy. For your very limited information, I'm one of a few female Transformers fans. I collect Transgormers. Just because I don't want to sit thru watching MY favorite Transformer possibly getting killed does not make me any less of a fan. Jackass.

      Delete
    3. I can sympathize with ya... my issue with the bots dying is how they die! When Soundwave executed Cue the way he did I was pretty hacked off!! It wasnt that he died but just that he was basically begging to not be killed and was shot a couple times with soundwave laughing. I thought that was tooo dark for a movie that wasnt that dark. Poor taste

  22. That synopsis is hardly spoilery and it seems like pure speculation.

  23. I agree Martinus, everyone complains about how expensive tickets are now but dam look what you get. I couldn't imagine not seeing a Transformers movie in an awesome movie theater with an awesome sound and effects, I'll tell you straight out I love watching these movies in the cinema. I love the buzz you get from the anticipation and for me personally I love huge crowds, ofcourse I get there early but its a cool energy, everyone is siked. You just cant get that at home. I still love that old saying Escape to the movies. But that's just me, everyone's different, thankgod it would suck if we were all the same.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That synopsis if it's real should be entitled with a spoiler warning. If it turns out to be true well then we already knew what the movie was about making the poster a jackass. There were a few leaked drafts that came out with ROTF and one of them was a real draft of the movie. This could very well be the same thing.

    Tens you are entitled to wait till it comes out on dvd. However I have to agree it does seem a little silly. That's my opinion. Ironhide is one of my favorites and it didn't sway me any from seeing it in theaters.

    Your seeming pretty childish yourself with the name calling. You put it out there leaving it open for people to comment about it and get upset that people have done so.

    ReplyDelete
  25. No it isn't silly. If my favorite character is going to be killed, I want to know about it beforehand. I want to and will see the movie, I just have no desire to watch Bay possibly kill Sideswipe. You can't hit fast forward on a movie to bypass it and watching Sides die would pretty much put one giant damper on the rest of the movie for me. I'd rather enjoy the movie by being able to bypass a part like that. I'm able to do that with the dvds. I always bypass Jazz and Ironhide's craptastic death scenes. Everyone reacts differently to these movies and has their own opinion on Bay. Me not wanting to witness another Bay unnecessary death of a Bot isn't stupid. I'm pretty sure had you or martinus been put down like that, your reaction would be the same as mine. I'm also not apologizing for calling him a jackass,when in fact he acted like one. Sorry just how I feel.

    1. If sideswipe is in it he wont die in the first film.. it wouldn't happen until 2/3 the way into the next one or in the finally of the the last one lol you know really if Prime has the matrix now then he should be able to resurrect who he wants if they still have their body anyway.. they need to go get jazz off the sea floor and bring him back except make it to where he doesnt call people lil bitchez... that was stupid... transformers shoukd jever cuss or make sexual inuindos!!

    2. Tens dont worry about it... there are always peeps online and anonymous that are similar to telephone tough guys hahaha trust me im pretty good at predicting these mBay movies... sideswipe wont die in the first on... autobots will kick but first then in the next one the decepticons will kick more butt then I n the third all hell will break lose with the humans basically heloung prime beat unicron ir whoever the villain is.

  26. Come on now, you can do what ever you want and what ever you like and no one is silly, like I said thankgod we are all different that would suck if we were all the same. Its like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, there both incredible and yet so different and I have respect for both of them. We like Transformers the we like them period, there is no right way or wrong way to watch it, I have my opinion and you have yours.Why cant we just have differences of opinion and chat about it. I mean I don't like the goofy doofyness of the movies but I love the action and the special effects, will Bay change his approach this time, I don't know, what say you.

  27. At the end of the day it comes down to watch it how you want to watch it. Even if you will be missing one hell of an experience. If you put something out on the world wide web you can't get mad because someone comments on something you said...moreso when even you called it petty.....

    1. If you took the time to really read and comprehend what I said in my origional post, maybe you'd see I never said I wasn't going to NOT see the movie. I said that I was going to wait until others see the movie to see if Sideswipe is in the movie and survives or if he's offlined. If he's offlined, I would want to wait til the movie is out on dvd so I could bypass that scene. When they killed Jazz in the first movie, I left the theater amazed by the movie but pissed at Bay for killing one of the main Bots in the Transformers universe. When Mr.Clueless killed Ironhide, it put a damper on the rest of the movie for me. He killed yet another main Bot. The man has no clue about, nor does he seem to care about the actual Transformers universe,imo. So no, I don't want to sit there and watch him possibly kill off yet another main Bot because he has no freaking clue about the actual Transformers universe. I'd feel the same way if it were Bee or Prowl or Ratchet or Bluestreak. He kills them off for the 'cool visual effect', not for the sake of telling an actual story or representing the actual Transformers universe. Let me reiterate, I WILL see the movie. I never said I wouldn't. I just want to know what he does with characters like Sides, as to whether I'm going to the theater to see it or waiting til the dvd. It's a PERSONAL CHOICE which is NOT open for criticism. I said it 'may seem petty' meaning to some of you but I also didn't ask for opinion or criticism on it. I was making conversation, not asking for opinion or criticism. I could sit here and point out and criticize how you're uninvitedly lecturing me from behind the 'anonymous' moniker. I'm not going to though. So how about if you take your opinion and lecture and use it on someone who actually asked for it? I didn't and I'm honestly not interested in it. Thank you.

    2. You apparently did not take time to read and comprehend my post. Which point did I say you weren't going to see the movie? A hell of an experience? Theater if you choose not to go because they may kill off Sideswipe. Kind of the pot calling the kettle black,eh? You seem to be missing that it only carries the moniker of Transformers. It's Bayformers. You don't seem to get it. If you post something in comments whether it only be an opinion or something your wanting to discuss. You still posted it on the World Wide Web making it open for discussion. Is it really that complicated to comprehend? I don't think I can dumb it down anymore than that. Hide behind Anonymous? Girly, we are all anonymous. Having a registered name or call sign doesn't make you any less anonymous. No one still knows your real name,address,SS# anything about you.

  32. I'm pretty sure that Bay has more control over the movies than he's being given credit for. While he may not write the movie, he has the final say on many things. Granted, the Movie Studio does get alot of say, Bay can switch things around to his liking.

    ReplyDelete

  38. All y'all on here attacking each other are like a bunch of deceptions! Let's not get the real reason we're on here: our love for transformers. Whether the movie follows G1 or goes it's own way, it don't matter as long as it a transformers movie.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Tens1823:

    Decepticons ftw! Long time G1 follower and doesn't bother me a bit if they follow strictly. As good as G1 is they still have to make an exciting movie. If that means a few main characters die then that's the way it is. Bay and crew have done their research and know the universe but there is still a matter of having to make a movie that is going to appeal to a large genre and not just to fans.

  40. They have to kill off bots in order to bring in others. It would be boring to have the same cast throughout the series. I think the only ones they really have to keep is Optimus and Megatron/Galvatron
