Age of Extinction
Transformers 4 Villain and Voice Actor Revealed - It's Not Who You Think

By Ender on Monday, April 01, 2013



The casting news just keeps coming, this time with a spoiler concerning what villains we can expect to fill the void after Dark of the Moon’s summary executions. In a move only this interpretation of the Transformers could justify, Sir Patrick Stewart has been tapped to play none other than Renegade Leader Cy-Kill. That’s right, as in the Go-Bot. Hasbro has owned the Go-Bots since 1991. Is this the “It’s not a reboot” shake up Bay has been promising?

“We’re delighted to welcome Patrick to the Transformers family.” Bay said on his forum, Shoot for the Wallet. “Let’s hope this villain whines less than our last one. “ Probably a reference to Hugo Weaving’s dismissive comments towards the franchise last year. Sir Patrick is likely to continue the Bayformers Tradition of British voiced villains who have no idea what movie they’re in.

Possibly bigger news is the character Stewart will be portraying, Cy-Kill, who is, in fact, not a transformer at all. Contrary to appearance, Bay is not totally oblivious to the Transformer/Go-bot dichotomy; he had this to say on the subject.

“We’re really excited to bring the continuities together like this, I know some people won’t be on board with this re-imagining of the Transformers universe, but we really looked at all the available big bad guys in the mythos, and this was the only one that turned into a motorcycle. I have some motorcycles, they’re awesome. “

I wonder if he made Sir Patrick had to wash one of them to get into the movie. In case you didn't notice, this has been presented to by the April Fools department at ENI. :P

The Furyu Prize Blog has posted images of a new Lost Age Optimus Prime prize figure that will be released in November 2014. Seeing as it's listed as a "prize" figure, it'll probably be available primarily through Japanese arcades through the UFO Catcher and similar crane-game machines. The figure's listed as 16cm tall, but we don't know if that's head height, or to the top of the sword. Keep reading for the mirrored photos!
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a special unboxing video for the G1 Dinobots boxset exclusive to Comic-Con International. Click through to get a link to the design team walking you through the packaging as well as all the numerous G1 callouts in these elaborate Age of Extinction recolors!
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!
