Age of Extinction
Age of Extinction News




Michael Bay has previously suggested he might leave Transformers films behind, but kept coming back for more, but this time it may be the real thing. Having stated again that he would leave the franchise to other hands after Age of Extinction, Bay has reinforced this by engaging in talks to direct an upcoming project, "13 Hours", as reported by Variety. If Bay becomes attached to this film, it would likely keep him too occupied to get involved with production of the fifth Transformers movie. Unless Bay reverses once again, we may be looking at a Transformers movie under new guidance.




PlanckEpoch has posted on TFW of his in-store sighting for the final assortment of Deluxe Age of Extinction figures. The assortment carrying Snarl, Bumblebee's updated form, and Hot Shot the very much Tracks recolor of Crosshairs was spotted at Target in Portland, Oregon. The release of these toys to stores effectively marks the end of main line retail releases of AOE, with the only things remaining being various exclusives such as Plantium sets. Click through for photographic proof, and happy hunting!




Following a tease in the hobby magazine earlier this week, TakaraTomy has revealed full details on Micron Carnivac. Recolored (yet again) from one of the Transformers: Cybertron Mini-Cons, Carnivac would likely be intended as a stand in for Lockdown's wolf-like cyborgs that menaced the human props in Age of Extinction. The Micron will be available at Toys R Us locations in Japan with the purchase of 3000 Yen or more worth of Transformers products during the campaign period. Keep reading to check out the up close image!




TakaraTomy's website has been updated with an image and information about the upcoming release of Black Knight Strafe. Following on from Grimlock, Slug, and Scorn before, Strafe is being redecoed in a black-heavy look and will be available via Cybertron Satellite locations throughout Japan. Starting in December, this figure will be available for 3200 Yen, but of course will cost quite a bit more for those of us who must rely on middlemen and secondary retailers! Click through to see the full image.




The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a selection of concept art images for various Age of Extinction characters. Representing about half of the main characters of the movie plus a Vehicon body design, this gives a detailed look at several of the character models that would go through additional refinements before being fully produced for visual effects in the movie. To check out all the images, click through and keep reading!




Our thanks to Blacklai who has shared more than one hundred photos of the Platinum Edition Dinobots Unleashed set. This set renders Grimlock, Scorn, Slug, Strafe and Slog in decos more in line with the movie's depiction of mostly colorless robot dinosaurs. These figures all feature plenty of chrome and silver paint with hints here and there of other colors in the individual decos. We've mirrored a small sample of this gallery, so click through to check them out. And if you want to see more be sure to hit up Blacklai's full gallery!




Good news from our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store! They've just listed a new preorder for an additional run of the Bumblebee Dual Model Kit. Representing Bumblebee in his pre-AOE body style, this non-transforming model is a highly articulated frame that you build the armor on in order to complete the figure. The preorder listing has an expected arrival date of March 2015.




Amazon Japan has posted high resolution official photos of Knight Armor Optimus Prime, an extensive retool of the Advanced Series (Generations) Leader Optimus Prime. This figure features changes to the torso, lower legs and forearms, as well as a new design head that allows the figure to be displayed with mask on or mask off. Knight Armor Optimus is scheduled for release on November 15th, and is listed at ¥8000 (plus 8% tax inside Japan), so expect this to easily top $100 from your usual import sources. Keep reading to check out all the images!




The Japanese website for Toys R Us has made an update to its listing for their exclusive recolor of Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. "Rusty" Optimus Prime was originally released on August 10th, but the latest version of the product page now shows a shipment date of December 8th. If you've been considering this version as your choice of screen-accurate editions of the Voyager Optimus mold, it looks like an additional supply is getting ready to become available. Just remember you'll still have to go through an extra party to order it!




The helicopter version of Drift retooled from Dark of The Moon Skyhammer may not be the newest thing around, but this video of the toy is definitely worth looking at. Tsumaraseta did a quick stop motion look at the toy, and finished off with an impressive triple-change sequence using both Generations AOE Drift figures. We love cool stop motion with Transformers, so check out the video embedded below!




If you've fallen a little behind in your Transformers purchases, this is a great time to round up what you've missed. Hasbro Toy Shop currently has a new active coupon code that gives 20% off most in stock merchandise, and throws free shipping on as well, even for orders under $50! HTS is very up to date with their Transformers offerings, that combined with this excellent discount make it a perfect chance to snag some things you may have opted to wait on a bit. Keep reading for the discount code!




Variety reports that Age of Extinction very easily topped all three Nielsen VideoScan sales charts: Overall Disc Sales, Blu-Ray/DVD Combos, and Blu-Ray Only. Unusually Transformers 4 also derived a much larger chunk of its first-week sales from Blu-Ray releases at 63%. Also, AoE was the most rented video this week as well. Whatever you think of Michael Bay's approach to Transformers it's continually rewarded with success - so I hope you're used to it. Keep reading for more info!




Marking the home video release of Age of Extinction, voice actor Peter Cullen committed his hand prints and signature to a tile of concrete at TCL Chinese Theatre. A large statue of Optimus Prime was on display at the theatre, and a second concrete slab was present featuring a single tire print to represent the Autobot leader. Keep reading to see images from the event from Twitter user Levi Tinker, and a Youtube video from Mingle Media with highlights from the event where Peter Cullen credits his brother as his inspiration.




Steve Jablonsky has posted to his official Facebook page that the score for Age of Extinction will be released on Tuesday, October 7th. Jablonsky is currently hard at work preparing a number of signed copies to be sold through the publisher's website, and suggests a few may also make their way out to some retail locations. Keep reading to see Steve Jablonsky's thanks to his fans straight from his Facebook update!




In an interview with Cinema Blend, when asked his thoughts if Michael Bay should really be leaving the franchise after Age of Extinction, Peter Cullen spoke very highly of the director so well known for flashy, eye catching, attention grabbing, and explosive action scenes who has shaped what the Transformers movies have become over the last seven years. Keep reading for an excerpt from the piece and a link back to the original interview!
