Transformers: Age of Extinction Super Bowl Teaser Trailer (Update x4)

Super Bowl XLVIII teaser trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction has landed. If want to view most of the other Super Bowl ads and trailers hit AdBlitz or NFL. Links below.

Update 1: Added the sweet animated gif from io9.com.

Update 2: The transformers_movie Instagram account (link below) has posted screenshots with labels for some of the characters. Its a fan run account so still nothing official. From those labels, the guy in beginning of trailer below giant ship is Lockdown. He is also the guy that had head transform into a gun and is holding Optimus upside down. The two headed thing is identified as Strafe (aka Swoop), and parachuting Autobot is Crosshairs. Again none of this is official, just speculation. The gray, Megatron looking robot is probably the alt mode of the gray Freightliner truck. Thanks to Feris O. for the heads-up.

Update 3: Hi-res screencaps at the TFW2005 link below for those that really want to dissect the trailer. Also updated the blog title banner. Thanks to Jeffrey Marshall of Pixel Rally who has been updating those banner over the years. The new one makes use of the Age of Extinction font style from the trailer.

Update 4: Added link below for a 1080p dowload of the teaser, courtesy of MichaelBay.com's Twitter account.

  3. Grimlock and swoop look amazing. It looks like it will be a good movie

  4. I thought it looked good UNTIL we got to see what Grimlock looked like...thumbs down for me.

  5. Swoop(I'm assuming) catches Bumblebee from the explosion

    Optimus finds and awakens Grimlock who accepts him as leader and they both head off to battle

    just a guess

    3. I don't know i have a feeling the Dragon isn't Swoop its Megatron from the old series

    4. If you look at where Bee jumps from the explosion, he jumped so Strafe could catch him, and most likely Bee will climb up onto Strafe's back and ride him.

    1. That green robot that you see jumping from that explosion...was that ratchet plus where is sideswipe, mirage,and the wreckers are they in the movie

      Delete
    2. It was not Ratchet, the green robot (aka the corvette stingray) is either Crosshairs or Slingshot. As for Sideswipe, Dino and Mirage they are all killed. By who? I don't know, but I think it was the 'alien bounty hunters' as Lockdown is in there too. Anyways, there was a poster on a propaganda wall, and the poster said that Sides, Dino and two of the Wreckers were 'slain' and Ratchet was 'apprehended'.

  8. This is going to be a good movie anyone that was expecting G1 Grimlock sorry to burst your bubble but this is 2014 They had to update him with time just like all 80s style toys, tv shows, or updated movies. Besides this was a teaser trailer I am sure the newer trailers will look better, Was that Galvatron that I saw?

    AWESOME EPICNESS!!!! The Dinobots look awesome and they are ginormous!!!! Only thing I'm not digging right now, is that Optimus does indeed ride Grimlock and Slag/Slug.
    But what a teaser and it does seem Lockdown is going to kidnap Optimus.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The "dino"bots look more medieval than prehistoric. Maybe a twist on them? I still say they won't transform into robots. If they do transform, it will be into weapons or something like that. I like the way they look.

  19. I want to see if Grimlock transforms into a robot. If he does, he is going to drop some haymakers on the decepticons. What will the decepticons answer be to Grimlock? This was a good trailer...loved what I saw

  20. i dont think that is Swoop with more than one head. I think a Predicon.....

  23. actually the 2 headed flying transformer comes up as Doublecross

    ReplyDelete
  24. Not sure who it is, but the first TF is the grey truck that was filmed with Optimus on the country road some months ago.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Looks like Optimus was protecting Niccola if you look at that scene really good

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yea... I could sit here and pick apart certain details that I didn't like about what I just saw. I agree with the guy who made a comment about how unrealistically human "Crosshairs" and his guns look... I wasn't a fan of the robot who cut the Chevy in two (that might be the same CON that had the gun come out his face) and I don't see how Grimlock can turn into robot mode at his size... BUUUUUT... WHO CARES!!!!! It's TRANSFORMERS BABY!!!! I'm freaking excited as hell to see it and I would drop kick my Grandfather if I could see it right now!!! I'm just pissed that Bay didn't put more BOTS/CONS in the teaser. And also... it's almost guaranteed that we won't see the Dinobots in action until the last battle scene of the movie.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Also... it's definitely evident that at least Grimlock is directly tied to China. Not only is that where it was kind of implied that they filmed his role, but you can definitely see the Asian influence in his design. Not sure about the two headed winged thing though... Swoop didn't have two heads???

      Delete
  27. Could some of this stuff be built by humans hunting transformers? Wasn't that part of the preview? A human faction reverse engineering them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Could the dinobots actually be the reverse engineered human creations?

      Delete
    2. Yes, to my knowledge there will be robots built by humans... but the green one in the parachute isn't one of them... that's definitely the green corvette bot.

  28. The robot walking from the ship....Lockdown? I also think it's the same robot who's head turns into a gun!?!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd say it's the one with the human face posted a few days ago...

      Delete
  29. My take is this:
    I'm excited. I think the Transformer who is walking towards the camera in the beginning, is the same one who's head transforms into a gun - it's Lockdown. He shoots Optimus in the chest as he's going to kidnap him I suspect.

    Looks like Bumblebee is hopping up onto Swoop (or whatever his name will be in the movie), and Optimus IS riding Grimlock into battle. I recall a picture that leaked a month or two ago, that showed that exact same thing. Grimlock is HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Decepticon who swipes the car in half - that is not Lockdown, that maybe the new form of Megatron, or his new reborn-form.

    Wondering what that thing was in the middle of the trailer - looked like some type of arch and a Transformer was standing under it - maybe the inside of Lockdown's ship?

    Looking forward to the film.

    1. Lockdown is the one walking in the beginning, the one who has the gun from his face and I'm pretty sure the one that slices the car. If you look closely at when the gun comes from his face, there is a blue glow from the top of his chest... the same blue glow that the one had that sliced the car. As always, could be wrong.

      Delete
    2. Martinus Prime2/02/2014 8:33 PM

      I also think that's Lockdown's ship, but in the middle, there is no robot standing under it, it's Optimus who gets captured and hangs upside down.

      Delete
  30. A decepticon in an alt mode with a gun coming out of the chest and "feet" acting as stabilizers on the sides? Have all you G1 fans not recognized that is Galvatron! Galvatron walking on the street with Unicron behind him?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too small to be Unicron behind that transformer. jus' sayin'

      Delete
    2. Unicron HAS to be bigger than that!!!! I have a funny feeling that Megatron might not get a working body in this one... at least not so much film time. I think Lockdown will be the main villain. We'll see..

      Delete
    3. The early grey bot may very well be Galvatron. The ship though is just a ship. Perhaps a ship from Unicron, but just a ship. And he has that grey truck mode, similar to Optimus.

      Delete
    4. Why does Unicron have to be bigger than that? In the Animated Movie, he was the size of a Planet... In Transformers Prime, he was just a giant walking around on Earth... Out of everything Bay has done with this franchise... sticking to the original concept has not been one of them.

      Delete
    5. He never walked around in Transformers Prime. Those were only avatars of his being. He himself was the core of earth, which I would certainly call "planet-sized."

      Delete
  31. if you pause at 0:18 you'll see that it's cross hairs :), the silver bot slicing the car in half...don't think it's megatron/galvatron

    ReplyDelete
  32. Unicron? Where? The dinobots look awesome! Can't wait to see their alt modes! I may have overlooked but I didn't see Lockdown. I gotta watch it more way too much epicness!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The bot walking at the start and the one that cuts the car are two different bots....the bot walking is thinner than the bot cutting the car.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well supposedly Lockdown is the Grey Lambo...the transformer in the beginning ( and the one who's face is a gun) are both grey in alt mode...most likely that's lockdown

    ReplyDelete
  35. No, Crosshairs is the one with the parachute, and he has firing two guns at the same time. The bot in the beginning is the same bot at the one with the gun that comes out of his head - Lockdown; the humongous thing behind him is his ship, where he has tons of Transformer body parts that he keeps as trophies. Why? Because Lockdown is a BOUNTY HUNTER. If you look at his chest in the very beginning of the trailer and then when the gun comes out of his head, you'll see the matching spikes.

    The Con that slices the car in half is not the same robot - Lockdown is a dark grey/black (his alt mode is that Black Lamborghini Reventon); the one that slices the car in half is silver.

    The 2-headed winged robot that Bumblebee jumps onto is Strafe, who is the movie version of Swoop.

  36. It sounded like Optimus jizzed himself when he got shot in the chest!

    So many questions....

    Was that Optimus hung upside down on the ship? I am guessing that Transformer is Lockdown beside him.

    OMG I am so pumped for this movie!!!

  37. Martinus Prime2/02/2014 8:38 PM

    The first bot we see walking towards of beneath the ship is Lockdown and the second one who slices the red car in half, is the Argosy Freightliner truck, he has the blue lines in his body and he looks awesome and that's also the robot who's face transforms into a gun and most definitly has to be Galvatron!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm just glad we finally all have something to talk about!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. The Transformer that cuts the car in half that has yellow eyes and like a yellow chest cannon...could that be one of Unicrons pawns?

    ReplyDelete
  40. The megatron looking dude that slices the car in half is the semi that chases optimus

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am not convinced Unicron is in this. I know everyone keeps saying it is but I don't see anything that to me supports the theory. This planet you guys are seeing is way too small.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've watched the Trailer a few more times, in HD and I've paused it at several places, and here's what I've noticed:
    1)The bot in the beginning and the bot with the gun coming out of his head, as well as the bot at :20 seconds in, are all the same bot: it's Lockdown;
    2)The huge thing behind him - that's Lockdown's ship, of which we see the interior of at :20 seconds in, where Optimus is hanging upside-down in a "cage" like structure as Lockdown is getting ready to torture him;
    3)The con slicing the car in half - it's gotta be the Argosy truck: the blue lines on his chest are a give-away - but where the hell do all the black parts of the truck go when he transforms???
    4)The green bot with the parachute - that's Crosshairs;
    5)The scene with Optimus on the country road - it's a continuation of the scene where Tessa is screaming in the car; Optimus has defeated the Argosy-bot(LOL) whom he's standing over, and also Tessa is at the bottom of the frame, as Lockdown walks in and transforms his head into a gun with a laser sight, shooting Optimus in the back;
    6)The Shot where Mark Wahlberg says, "Everybody get behind me" - a "shadow" runs behind him - that is the guy running with Tessa and Mark in the other shot where the huge explosions are going off around them;
    7)Bumblebee - he's running from an explosion and jumps onto Strafe, the movie version of Swoop;
    8)The truck bot falling over - that is Optimus; the SUV under him looks like one of the Black Decepticon SUVs from ROTF, and they are chasing Wahlberg and the Race Car Guy (Jack Reynor???) in the Sonic;
    9)The shot with Crosshairs - that is obviously Chicago, as you can see the Sears Tower (or whatever it's called now) in the right side of the frame;
    10)The beginning shot - there's a farm house underneath Lockdown's ship: that is Wahlberg's house;
    11)The ships in space heading towards Earth: I'm willing to bet those are Lockdown's fleet, or maybe some other Decepticons at some other part in the movie;
    12)The arch that Grimlock smashes through - that may be what was shot on that set in Detroit;
    13)The other shot with Optimus and Grimlock - that's that Chinese forest that Bay filmed in, and there's a pagoda-like roof in the bottom left of the frame

    Can't wait for an official trailer that shows more!

    1. it's bad for two reasons.

      1. they've already done it once, and nearly did it a second time.

      2. the masses don't know the other leaders, and you don't kill a main character when you're wanting to make a new trilogy.

      so no, OP shouldn't be killed.

  45. I can see Lamborghini emblem on Lockdown chest while his head transform into a gun.
    So it has been confirmed that his alt mode is that black Lamborghini Aventador.

    Btw, epic teaser! Can't wait for the full trailer..!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Not crazy about Crosshairs. Bee looked really sharp. I kind of like the way Strafe looks. Grimlock looks like the love bot of a dragon and t-rex, and he's HUGE. The clip did seem rushed together and didn't grasp me the way the first clips of the previous 3 films did. It was still neat, just not as jaw dropping. Hopefully, we get a much better and slightly longer clip fairly soon.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Something isn't making sense to me. Supposedly Lockdown is the gray Lambo but from the scene with the bot with Optimus hanging upside down that bot looks to be about as big as Optimus. If Lockdown is truly the Lambo shouldn't he only be about as big as Bumblebee? I don't think those are the same bots as speculated.

    The dinobots look awesome! They seem to have this prehistoric/medieval look to them. So it would seem the image of Optimus riding Grimlock was only partially true. Color scheme was all wrong. I do think they may take it abit too far though with the whole riding bit with Optimus riding both Grimlock and Slag.

    Nothing so far that I am seeing that hints that Unicron is in it as speculated. I really doubt he is.

    I am uncertain if that is Strafe (Swoop) or not. Two heads looks more to be Doublecross. Bumblebee may very well be jumping up onto him to attack from above than to ride him. Would make sense to me to have higher ground to attack.

    Crosshairs. Well I don't really know what to make of him. On one hand he looks cool but I am really not liking his face. He makes me think of Wreck-Gar minus the beard.

    Overall the trailer is badass and hope they release a theatrical cut before long but until then this leaves lots to talk about and speculate about!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wreck-Gar is also who Crosshairs reminds me of. I'm not really liking Crosshairs, to be honest. Given the choice of Wreckers, I would've prefered Roadbuster or Topspin.
      Strafe reminds me of Ghidra, with those 2 heads (I know he had 3 heads), but I'm kind of liking him.
      Grimlock could use a bit more color, but overall, he's cool looking.
      While I'm happy we finally got to see a couple of Cons, I'm not all that impressed with that silver Con. Gun Face Con (Lockdown) is pretty cool though.
      Lockdown's ship is freaking massive.
      I also really liked how Bee looked. They needed to 'mature' him a little bit.

      Delete
  48. There was a clip awhile back that had Optimus speaking with Cade and the Autobots. It was the one where he says that there's still a price on his head and he'd only be endangering everyone if he stayed. If that clip really is legit, then that suggests that Optimus survives and leaves the planet.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think it's obvious he survives. No way they are going to permanently kill off one of the biggest draws imo.

      Delete
  49. Tens1823:

    Crosshairs does not look very good. The face is horrid. I have to agree with other comments. I highly doubt that is Doublecross. If you go back and look at the toy figure of Swoop he does appear to have two heads

    http://www.cybertron.ca/boards/showthread.php?t=50588 link to Swoop figure

    The trailer was really good but it lacked everything that drew me in about the previous. It included a lot of action scenes but minus any of the real drama. I realize they had to shove a lot into 34 seconds though.

    Hopefully the theatrical cut will be out in a couple of months.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The once scene of Bumblebee with the explosion was shot in Detroit. If you watch my set video below you'll see the set at the very beginning of the video that matches up to the scene from the teaser trailer.

  56. for my opinion i think Lockdown is the main villain in this film

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think lockdown is the argosy, there is no way a deception as small as a lambo can take down a big awesome truck.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I figure Lockdown is just the character we are being led to believe is the main villain. If they are keeping him to his roots as a bounty hunter then someone will have hired him.

    ReplyDelete
  59. well here's the thing..... the gun faced guy, and whoever has optimus upside down..... imo could not take on optimus and grimlock at the same time. I still think the main baddy has yet to be revealed. optimus and grimlock vs.... who? lockdown? no contest. Galvatron? ..... contest. Galvatron and a combiner? .... better have back up. We don't know who the main villain is yet. Keep in mind when dark of the moon was being produces Bay said publically the main baddy was Shockwave..... to protect against knowing who the real villain was. I hope it is Galvatron done well.

    ReplyDelete
  60. That's exactly what I was saying with lockdown who we are led to believe. I am curious if it's the guy who sliced the car in half.

    1. Well, maybe we should wait until "the origin of the Dinobots" part of the plot is revealed. If their origin is Cybertron, it's only logical that differ from real dinosaurs even some ways. Strafe has two heads, Grimlock has horns, Slug has spikes in his tail.

      Delete
  65. Tfcollect:loved the teaser. Its what I expected, quick shots underdeveloped scenes and characters being shown which we all will try to put a name too and identify...Lockdown? I don't believe he's the main antagonists, Unicron may not have been shown but I believe he's hired Lockdown to capture OpPrime. Only thing that can put Unicron into statsis is the Matrix and OpPrime has it. The robot splitting the car? I think we're being fooled to believe that its a Decepticon. I don't think so. I think he's spitting a drone in vehicle mode, l think he's an autobot I believe its Ultra Magnus. I'm also don't look at the fact that Lockdown is small that he could beatdown OpPrime, lockdown has Major firepower and Decepticon and autobots alike fear him. The Dinobot Grimlock looks great I still think he's just too big. I've heard everyone theory but dinosaurs are Earth Creatures and when Cybertronians takes a form they take a form that is comparible to there size. But its movie magic and I can't wait for the release.

    ReplyDelete
  66. That dinosaur in the end is so huge that it could be Trypticon, but I know Trypticon is a decepticon and he probably would be much bigger than that. Also no one has mentioned it, unlike Grimlock which is almost confirmed as far as I know.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Dudemus:I know its been awhile. But I just wanted to know how did you like the teaser and I'm impressed that you guess have given it a great review. Well let me add that what you saw isn't the complete look. There are lighting and other color schemes that has to be touched up. I can't tell you who the characters are but I will say that you are going to be suprised. Lastly you guys can now purchase the premium Optimus Prime from Amazon.com we made it available for purchase 12:00am this morning. We hope you enjoyed the teaser the full trailer will be on your screens within the next month. An extended version of the one shown during superbowl and one other. At least until the month before the movies release. You'll hear from me again really soon. But keep going with your comments your input is valuable to us. THANK YOU.

  70. I've read it a lot and I seriously doubt Unicron is in it. If he is surely he can't be more than eye or showing his mouth. He is just too big. Cgi costs quite a bit. They are already redesigning all the bots...adding more in...not to mention the sheer size of the dinobots...paying actors....advertising. I seriously doubt there is enough money to make a planet sized bot.

    I don't know who Dudemus is. Used to post here a lot and then supposedly flipped to claiming to be more of an inside person. Who knows really. I don't pay attention :)

    As for Lockdown, is it possible that Bay has decided to once again take liberties with the size and look of this Con? I mean, Grimlock looks nothing like actual Grimlock and Strafe definately isn't Swoop.

    1. I think the mistake with Crosshairs is going above and beyond to make him look human.

      Sure he could have taken liberties however the part that doesn't fit is this. If Bay is still all about things being realistic well there is no way a Lambo is going to be as big as a Semi, you know? I am expecting Lockdown to be a fairly small but lethal Tformer and the big bad has not surfaced. Bay has done a really good job of keeping things tight lipped so itst possible we haven't seen the main villain imo.

      Delete
    2. Couldn't agree with you more about Crosshairs. Had they just left him without the human features, I may actually like him. He seems like he could be a real badaft,minus that ridiculous beard and mustache.

      Good point about Lockdown. I don't expect him to be much bigger then Bee. I know Kelsey Grammer's character is the main human villain. I wouldn't be too surprised if the main Transformer villain in Galvatron.

    3. That's kind of what I'm expecting as well especially since we already know humans are working with the decepticons. I am just really hoping we don't end up with another incarnation of Megatron. I like him and Hugo Weaving would just like to see another villian.

  79. We know from that supposed leaked clip, that Optimus leaves the planet at the end of the movie. He's leaving behind a whole group of Autobots. Wouldn't it make sense for him to leave someone like a Magnus Or Rodimus in charge of them? He wouldn't just take off without designating someone as in charge of the Earth Bots. I also can't see him leaving Bee (as much as I adore him) in charge.

    1. Bee looks far too normal, is that it? But as a fighter he's very capable. Even more than some of the other bots. That can't be denied.

      Delete
    2. Not far too normal, just youthful and inexperienced with regards to leadership. For a Scout, he's a damn good fighter. I think he could be a fine leader given time and guidance from an experienced leader like Prime.

      Delete
    3. Agree completly. Plus Bee has a problem with his vocals that I really don't expect them to fix. It's part of his trademark now.

  80. I dont get all of the negative comments about Grimlock...also read a bunch on Tformers 2005. He looks so aggressive and evil...he is just mean looking. I love it. There is something missing though from this trailer and what the toy looks like with the gold/yellow on him. Something has to change...maybe Grimlock doesnt have an alliance to either side and eventually goes with the autobots and thats when he gets a color scheme. Its really fun to have news to talk about...love trying to speculate which transformer is in it.

    ReplyDelete
  81. We didn't even get to see all the Autobots. I really wanted to see Drift. I know Sideswipe isn't in this movie. I'm going with he left the planet in search of Sunstreaker. That's just me.

  82. I'm not convinced Optimus actually leaves the planet. We've seen that before.

    I think Grimlock looks badass. Really curious as to the origin story they have worked up to understand the horns.

  84. So we are pretty sure that humans are reverse engineering new transformers of their own in this movie right? and based from some speculated leaks we are under the impression its the Chinese right? And now we are also assuming that gridlock is potentially man-made in this movie right? so if the Chinese built him wouldn't it make complete sense that he is Chinese dragon-esque in nature?

    1. Then make him ALL Chinese Dragon-esque in nature and not a T-rex with horns on his head.

  85. From the rumored leaks, Kelsey Grammar's character in in cahoots with Li Bing Bing's character, who's in charge of the Chinese company whose creating (or trying to create) their own Transformers. My guess is that whatever Transformers they created, are actually more prone to be Con-like.

    It has been a while since my last post.
    The purpose of this trailer was to get your attention on the subplot of the film, which of course you guys seemed to have partly figured out in the comments above. However, the main story of the film does go "offtrack" a little... but Michael Bay has decided to take a risk on this one. Before many of you fans rattle me with questions, I am still under contract. But I will say this though, as you saw in the trailer, there was an invasion part happening...but are they Decepticons?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What is your part in all this that you claim to know as much as you do?

      It's kind of hard to say what the purpose of the trailer was. It seemed geared towards showing off some of the new bots but seemed more thrown together than anything else.

      Your statement alludes to them either being Autobots or more rogue bots from Cybertron.

      What can you tell as far as the movie goes without breaking your contract?

  93. Ironhide 44 - As soon as I saw the invading ships in the trailer I thought Qunitesson invasion...

    ReplyDelete
  94. The Qunitessons could be the ones helping humans make transformers. They could be using humans as pawns to help destroy the Cybertronians on Earth.

    Also, if you're looking to create a storyline for a new trilogy, you could have the Qunitessons as the minions/servants of Unicron, who could eventually appear in later movies.

    1. Hadn't thought about them. That would be pretty kickass to have them in it.

  96. The invading spaceships shown in the trailer share some design similarities with Quintesson cruisers, with their tall fin-like shapes. See examples below:

    http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Quintesson_spacecraft

    ReplyDelete
  97. Another possible design clue to a potential Qunitesson origin to the spaceships shown in the trailer is that Qunintesson ships rotated on their axis.

    While the ships in the trailer aren't shown rotating on their axis like they did in G1, the yellow-orange band of lights in the middle of the fin-like structures do appear to be rotating. Perhaps this is a subtle nod to the rotating Qunitesson ships of G1 that the designers have incorporated into the film.

  98. The isolation transformers are considered to be the best options for providing the prerequisite power supply to the electronic devices. These transformers work with the aid of two coils which come to be known as the primary coil and the secondary coil.

  107. I have a feeling that there are going to be more Transformers (Bot and Con), then we've been shown so far.

    ReplyDelete
  108. As for why some always go back to bringing up Unicron. If Galvatron is in fact in this movie, who does Galvatron serve? The same being who created him, Unicron. So it's not a giant leap to make, to think that at some point in the next 3 films, we'll see Unicron (and more than likely Primus,by extension).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, Allspark was actually Primus's spark and source of sparks of the Cybertronians in the Aligned continuity. But of course these are suppose to be separate continuities.

      Delete
    2. I know the backstory of Unicron and his relation with Galvatron and Primus. The whole thing of Unicron has been going back to I know ROTF..probably the first as well I wasn't around at that point. It's just kind of frustrating to keep hearing and knowing full well that anything beyond a mention or maybe a peak at an eyeball or along those lines will eat up way too much of the budget to make and let's not even think about how much it would cost to have him actually transform. We don't even know that Galvatron is in it. Personally I hope Bay leaves Unicron out of it. Short of having Unicron exactly as he was in the cartoons and him actually transforming from planet to robot there is no way Unicron could live up to fan expectations in Bayformers and on that note alone is better left alone imo.

      Delete
    3. Unless, Unicron is something else than a planet-eating monster. In TF:Prime Unicron was somewhat of different from other continuities. If Unicron would ever appear in these, he should be made as something very much more different.

      Delete
  109. Oh, I agree that Bay Unicron could never live up to what Unicron is suppose to be.Unfortunately, that probably won't deter Bay or whoever does the next 2 films, from bringing their version of Unicron to the big screen.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Unicron will be a hell of a mess if he was brought to the live action movies, but it does seem the movies are leading to it slowly... but michael bay will never bring him to his movies, coz he might aswell blow up the whole world with his fireworks!

    ReplyDelete
  111. If you've ever seen Fantastic 4 Rise of the Silver Surfer, that movie had a planet eating entity they showed at the end of the movie. I imagine Unicron would be along those same lines. In other words, underwhelming.

  119. Argosy is too big to be Cyclonus. Guys we have no idea who is in this movie. At least it's fun to speculate but let's not state things like it's a fact. If I had to guess the Argosy to be a decepticon..it would be Galvatron or another Megaton as a truck. One of those two I would think is going to be in this movie. Since Prime decapitated Megatron I would have to say Galvatron. Who knows though they did after all pull The Fallen out of their hats and no one would have guessed that.

  134. I am just going to answer some of your questions...as I am in a tight schedule.

    Yes, I do work with Michael Bay, in fact, I have been working with him pretty close the last few of months or so. I can also tell you that I work in the Special Effects and the Visual Effects Department for this film. That is all I can reveal about myself at this moment.

    Obviously, you guys have been wondering how some Transformers have gotten new upgrades (most particularly, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee). Well, all that is explained in the film.

    I actually have no idea why Stafe has two heads for this...but I can assure you that Stafe's robot form has one head...but does that mean he will be suffering from a personality issue?

    Yep, The Wreckers are in this...to some extent...

    The Transformer "Lockdown" is NOT the Lamborghini Aventador LP-500.

    I don't know if there are any leaked images of the Transformers "Hound" and "Drfit", But Hound is a bold bot with a metallic beard, he is pretty bulky (bulkier than Ironhide!) and has bullet holes on his armour. Drift looks like samurai, who is all about agility and cares about his appearance. In my opinion, he is probably my favourite Transformer! (Drift is like Sideswipe in a way).

    That's all the time I have folks, but when I am free again I will try and drop in and answer many questions as I can.

  138. That scene with parachuting Crosshairs has me wondering. Given how Chicago is still in one piece in that scene and there's no way the city could be rebuilt in 4 years time, along with there being DOTM drone ships. I think it's suppose to be a flashback scene to DOTM. If that's the case, then Crosshairs may actually be an upgraded version of one of the Bots that was actually there during the battle. There's no way that a new Bot was there during the battle of Chicago, parachuting in, survived the battle and was never once seen until this new movie. That would be freaking ridiculous. 'Crosshairs' gives off a Wrecker or Combat Specialist vibe to me. So maybe, just maybe, he's actually an upgraded version of one of the Bots from DOTM.

    ReplyDelete
  139. That's a pretty interesting theory that I hadn't though of. Question is which one? With all the decepticons that came down with Cybertron during DOTM I wonder if there could have been autobots as well?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I suppose that's possible.It's just that, we actually got to catch glimpses of all those Cons. You would think we would have caught a glimpse of Crosshairs. I'm actually kind of hoping now, that Crosshairs is an upgraded version of an already known Bot. He actually kind of reminds me of a combination of Roadbuster and Sideswipe. That green menace is kinda growing on me.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Yes, there are many areas in which the three previous films could of been better... YET, I'm thankful for all of them just the same. Making movies is an extremely tough business, so I won't be ungrateful. Seeing a live action Transformer movie was a dream and Bay made it come true. With that being said, there are two things that drive me crazy and I pray they are improved on.

    1. Please stop removing characters with no explanation!!! Such as... where in the heck did Jolt go??? He just disappeared in T3 with no explanation? The Twins were in the scene in the beginning of T3 where all the BOTS rolled into headquarters, yet they vanished? And I could be wrong... but I'm pretty sure not all of the Arcee twins were killed in the last battle in ROTF, yet they weren't in T3? I don't care what happens to them, just tell us... a two second, three word sentence would be good enough. If there are BOTS/CONS missing in T4, PLEASE explain what happened to them.

    2. Detail and Consistency... For instance, WEAPONS (and I'm talking about throughout all three movies)... One minute Ironhide has cannons attached to his arms, the next they are gone and he's holding a regular gun... Sometimes they show the same Transformers weapon discharging like regular bullets, like human guns and others they show the same Transformer using a energy based weapon? I don't care how or what... just keep it consistent. Also... battle scenes. Megatron pretty much put the fear of god in and kicked everyones @ss at once in the final battle of T1, yet got his @ss kicked in every other movie. Blackout took out an ENTIRE military base on his own and then got destroyed by a few humans. Look... I know I don't have perfect examples, but you get my point. I know making these movies are tough, but paying attention to detail would add so much to these films.

  148. I wish people who are just trying to downplay the movie (Knowing damn well they will be the first one's in line) would get the hell off the message board. Buncha fake ass phonies
