It’s only a few months until ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ (‘Trans4mers‘?) is gracing the silver screen with an overabundance of overblown explosions, toilet humor, not very subtle racism and robots that are loosely based on that thing that you loved from your childhood. On the bright side, this time they’ve traded out Shia “I’m not famous anymore” LaBeouf for Marky-Mark “formerly of the Funky Bunch” Wahlberg, and brought in a whole slew of new robots for us to watch fight! So what kind of goodies do Hasbro and Michael Bay have in store for us this year?
Well, starting off we’ve got this giant piece of awesome, Grimlock! Leader of the Dinobots, this fan favorite character makes his big screen debut in this new film and is set to bring along some of his Dinobot friends as well! While they aren’t quite the Dinobots that Transformers fans are used to, if Grimlock here is any indication of what the Dinobots have in store, it looks like these guys are here to make the Decepticons go extinct!
In these early toy previews we also get our first look at the movie versions of Autobots Hound, Crosshairs and Drift (oooh nice samurai theme on this guy!) and Decepticons Lockdown and Stinger! With the only returning characters from the previous trilogy of films being Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, expect to see a ton of great new figures for all the new Transformers characters we’ll be seeing for the first time in live action this summer! These particular versions of the toys mostly look to be the “kids friendly” versions, so we can probably expect some even cooler stuff for the more “adult” collectors a little closer to the films release.
‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ is set to hit theaters on June 27th, 2014.
