First official look at Optimus Prime in Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction

Nov. 25, 2013by: Jesse Giroux


The latest issue of Empire will be all about the next TRANSFORMERS film, and the cover gives us a glimpse at the new look Optimus Prime will be sporting in TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION. How's he look? Check him out:

Optimus Prime Time:

In case you forgot (or didn't bother with the last film), here's how he looked in TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON:

It's not a drastic change, but he does look a lot less like a big rig than he did in the previous films. The face plate is a little different, and to me his torso looks like the alien suits that were used in BATTLESHIP, which is kind of funny considering how much that film obviously borrowed from Michael Bay's movies. What do you guys think though? Good new look for Optimus Prime?

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION starring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, Titus Welliver, and Bingbing Li will hit theaters on June 27th, 2014.

Transform, and Roll Out!

Yeah yeah Bay's a hack and Wahlberg sucks and all that, but I can't help but feel like a kid and get excited for this, especially after seeing this new pic. As if Optimus wasn't a badass before, judging by that picture, he's going to be destroying all kinds of mechanical ass in TF4.

meh....

When I heard that Transformers was going to get 'reskinned' so to speak, or re-tooled...idk whatever was supposed to happen they said it wasn't a re-boot but close to it. I was genuinely for it. I was happy cause we would get a different approach to the already stale Transformers series. Transformers original movie was just so over the top awesome that the sequels in comparison were quite underwhelming....even if part 1 never happened the sequels were just awful. So to hear about this approach

So to hear about this approach was great. Then the big let down about Bay directing once again.......WTF???
So here we are....and MEH....and a sigh...
Wow, Prime looks almost identical to how he was before....with a few changes...so friggin what. Is the movie going to be better because Prime or any of the other Transformers look different? HELL NO! The movie could be better than the 2 sequels only if its a better story, the characters are relate-able, its not just about bigger explosions.....I mean the list just goes on and on.. but whats not on that list is that the Transformers look a little different. So MEH....until I hear otherwise, which I'm not holding my breath.

for some reason, i imagined a cocky Mark Wahlberg just giving Optimus a high 5. I wouldn't be surprised if Bay threw that in there.

although they both look like shit, how can you explain the new one transforming into a trailer? At least the old design you can see its a truck. This is what happens when you get a bunch of idiots together and way over think simple shit. Take a look at the cartoon of the comics for god's sake Bay you fucking twit!! This is gonna suck ass just like the other ones, I will pass.

I really wanted a more simpler design. It was hard telling what was going on in the last few movies.

You must be 8 years old. I suppose if I was 8, and Michael Bay's films were my first exposure to Transformers I'd like them to. Oh wait you're not 8...so you just like really horrible movies devoid of character development or anything close to an actual story. But are agreeable to lots of CGI, explosions and overly silly robots. All 3 of these movies were God awful, especially the 2nd one, and this will be no different. Unfortunately until parents stop taking their kids to see these, Bay

Unfortunately until parents stop taking their kids to see these, Bay will keep crapping them out. It doesn't matter what Prime looks like.

I completely agree with you. I grew up on Transformers and I still love these movies. What I think is hilarious is how many people are complaining about how Prime looks. Prime and all of the Transformers went through so many different looks and changes through all of the different series they put out over the years, so why couldn't he look different for the live action movies. People need to give it a break. These are popcorn movies that are meant to just have fun watching and I'm loving every

@NoMoreRemakes! - you do realize that you come off like the 8 year old that you're accusing Derezz of being, by running your mouth like that, right? Think before you speak buddy. :)

Actually it's not that much of a difference, except for the face plate. Wahlberg looks like as if he's thinking "You're a donkey, right? What's up with that?", hehe.
