More Age of Extinction News
Concept Artist Steve Jung, who has also worked on The Avengers, has posted a selection of his concept art to Facebook. Highlights include the interior of Lockdown's ship and its very regal cockpit, the Hong Kong street battle featuring the Dinobots, and most interestingly Widow Maker, a female Decepticon who was to transform into a Pagani Zonda. She was Jung's only full character design for Age of Extinction and, sadly, she didn't make the cut. Click through to see all the mirrored images!
Robot Kingdom has shared an image of the upcoming AD-31 "Saikyou" (Strongest/Ultimate) Optimus Prime, which appears to be a power-up form of Prime that uses the Generations Leader class mold. Seeing as that mold was already used as AD-01 in a similar but superior deco to the US release, could this be a Silver Knight color scheme like the one Target seems to be so in love with? More info as it becomes available, but for now check out the incredibly vague magazine scan!
TakaraTomy is releasing a special DVD to support Lost Age in Japan. Along with some other promotional materials, the Autobot Daishukou DVD will contain the fun Diorama Story & Toy Demonstration from a couple weeks back. It also appears to contain episode 1 of Fight! Super-Robot Lifeform Transformers. Keep reading for the ad!
Appearing very, very briefly on ToysRUs' website this morning were a pair of Angry Birds Transformers products. The Optimus Prime Bird Raceway is a slot-racing set that comes with transforming "Ultimate Optimus Prime Bird" and "Ultimate Megatron Pig" figures, and the Energon Racers Pack is an assortment of Autobirds and Deceptihogs. Keep reading for images and some (hopefully temporarily) dead links!
