HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (August 26, 2014) -- From director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg and in association with Hasbro, Inc., Paramount Pictures' $1 billion worldwide blockbuster Transformers: Age of Extinction makes its highly-anticipated debut September 30, 2014 on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and VOD.

Box Office Mojo reports that James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy
has made a comeback and will surpass Transformers: Age of Extinction
this weekend as the summer's top-grossing movie. Its estimated domestic take for the week is $17 million putting it at $251 million overall. This places it in third place just slightly behind The Lego Movie
and Captain America: The Winter Soldier
in the ranking of best domestic releases of the year. Keep reading for more details on GotG and TF4's totals to date!
Transformers Colombia has come through yet again and brought us official product shots for the upcoming five pack exclusive Dinobots Unleashed, featuring the movie Dinobots in more-or-less movie-accurate decos. In particular, Scorn seems to be mostly chrome plated, but nobody has much specific color anymore. If you're interested in this set coming soon via Big Bad Toy Store, keep reading and check out the images!
Fresh from Arizona, ever the land of new toy sightings we have the first reports of store sightings for Drift helicopter and Dinobot Slog ...not to be confused with Dinobot Slug. Arizona seems to have unnatural luck in early toy sightings, but these should begin finding their way out to the rest of the United States over the next few weeks, assuming your local stores aren't still sitting under units from the first two Voyager waves. These were found at Toys R Us, so get out there and happy hunting!
Robot Kingdom has posted some new information about Saikyou ("Ultimate") Optimus Prime. Referred to as Silver Knight Prime by some Japanese sources, the figure has a variety of remolds and new parts to make it the most movie-accurate transforming Optimus Prime available. One of those options is a removable facemask! Keep reading for all the new details.
Joblo.com has posted a brief outline of what we can expect of the upcoming home release of Transformers 4, scheduled for release on September 30th. Promising over 3 hours of extras, an 8-part Making Of feature is listed, reportedly with more yet to be announced. For the full list of retailer exclusive releases, keep reading!
Box Office Mojo reports that Age of Extinction has crossed the Billion-dollar mark and is now the nineteenth highest-grossing film of all time. It's a solid 12 places behind Dark of the Moon, which is seventh ahead a varied spread of more deserving films- but the difference is "only" 120 million or so, so AoE could well catch up. Down over a hundred million domestically from DotM, TF4 also derived a lot more of its income from foreign releases- especially its record-breaking run in China. Keep reading for links to more statistics!
Age of Extinction has done pretty well for Michael Bay, both here and especially in China. The Wrap reports that Paramount Pictures has decided to extend their first-refusal contract with Bay and his Platinum Dune production company, and even extend it to his other
production company, Bay Films. This doesn't guarantee that he'll be the one to direct the next Transformers film, but it sure makes it seem more likely. Keep reading for all the details!
Transformers Colombia next brings us more stock photography for the Autobots United five pack. The Big Bad Toy Store exclusive set features the main Autobot cast from the movie with more detailed paint applications, and another appearance of the faceplated head sculpt for Evasion Mode Optimus. Keep reading to see all the mirrored images.
Transformers Colombia gives us a few additional stock photos showing the Breakout Battle set, with "Rusty" Optimus Prime, Rollbar, and "Vehicon", a minor redeco of DOTM Crankcase. This depicts the farm escape scene ...ish, using offscreen characters based around non-Transformer vehicles that appeared in the film. Check out all the images below!
"The infamous Transformers Colombia strikes again!" Following the official announcement a short time ago of Big Bad Toy Store's Platinum Edition Age of Extinction exclusive multi packs, Transformers Colombia has dug up more official stock photography for some of the toys in question. First up we see more views of Optimus with Trailer and Sideswipe featuring an even more chromed First Edition Optimus, red movie Sideswipe, and G1 style trailer. Keep reading and check out all the images!
Autobase Aichi has posted images from a giveaway DVD in Terebi-Kun
magazine (More or less "TV Magazine Junior") that show the QTransformers with a selection of Lost Age/Age of Extinction characters, plus G1 Sideswipe and Prowl! The images also suggest animation is on the way, and features Japanese versions of the How To Ride Your Dinobot shorts. Similar in style to the old Choro-Q toys, QTransformers (or Cute Transformers if you prefer) are little SD mini-cars that turn in to various characters. Click through for a tweaked mechanical translation, mirrored photos, and links!
Finally (for now) Transformers Colombia presents us with found images of the later wave One Step Changers for Age of Extinction heavily populated by off-screen character toys. This assortment will feature Rollbar who takes heavy X-Brawn cues, Strafe, ROTF Megatron(?!), and a very G1 Prowl. Keep reading to see images of each figure in both modes and packaged!

Get the scoop on all the news, images, videos, panels, and more as it happenend right here in a single post that includes all our coverage from the show. Read on too see it all now.
Hollywood Reporter does what it says in their name that Age of Extinction has passed $300 million in box office receipts in China- the first movie to ever do so. While it may be down to $4 million in its fifth week in US release (for a cumulative total of $236 Million, down roughly a third from Dark of the Moon), its worldwide gross is nearing $1 billion and it will almost certainly end up making as much or more than DOTM. Just, you know, not here.
