We reported that a new deal had been made to include several landmark buidlings in Beijing, China as part of the movie. However, it was not clear to us then that Michael Bay was being asked to blow them up as well. Now things are starting to get interesting, as it was reveled the producers requested there be a battle where the Pangu Plaza Hotel is destroyed in the film. Also reported, the filming of the China and Hong Kong scenes are planned to begin October 2013.
Beijing Pangu will finance production of the film. In return, the company's flagship building, the Pangu Plaza Hotel, will be shown in the film. The hotel is located near the National Stadium and Beijing National Aquatic Center, both of which "Transformers" producers would like to include in the film. Scenes shot at the hotel will show alien robots fighting. The Pangu itself will be shown blowing up in the film.

Not far behind Slug, we have pictures of the Strafe two pack from the Toys R Us exclusive Evolution Two Pack series. As immediately predicted following Slug's reveal, Strafe comes with the pterosaur Mini-Con mold in G1 Dinobot colors. This seems to indicate that the Energon Swoop mold may go unused, leaving Evolutions Grimlock with no one to unadvisedly combine with. See the pictures below!
Thanks to Instagram user foreverspecialk we have a look at the Optimus Prime and Grimlock promotional display for the Transformers Age of Extintion movie. This massive thing is said to be on the Paramount Lot, we assume that is in Hollywood, California. Read on to see it all after the jump.
Speculation has been high since the reveal of the Grimlock Evolution two pack featuring movie and Energon Grimlock. Today Slug's set has been shown for the first time, and it's probably not what anyone expected! Featuring AOE Deluxe Slug, and a G1 colors version of the triceratops Mini-Con mold representing "classic" Slug. These fit together on a card and may be closer to Deluxe price point, but with no visible changes to Slug it's hard to say whether the demand will be there. See pictures below!
Just in via Italian fan site Ttakon, we have some first looks at the Prime 1 Studio Starscream MMTFM-03 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen statue.

Read on to see the images for this first look at Prime 1 Studio Starscream MMTFM-03 statue now.
