New toy images confirms the villain in Transformers: Age of Extinction

Feb. 17, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

The 2014 New York Toy Fair is going on right now, and a few images of some of the toys based on the characters in TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION have landed online, including one that could be considered a spoiler. You can check out the pictures of the toys for Optimus Prime, Hound, and Grimlock below, but if you don't want to see the new villain in Michael Bay's upcoming film, don't scroll past the spoiler warning.

Take A Look:

Spoiler Time!

Yes, that's GALVATRON in the picture above, Megatron "reborn." We got a glimpse of him in the first trailer (he's the bot cutting a car in half), and we previously brought you an exclusive on the character possibly appearing in the film back in May, but now we have actual confirmation from Hasbro that Galvatron will be in TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION.

Most of you are probably not that surprised Galvatron will be the bad guy in the fourth film, but it's still a spoiler for some, so I had to be a little careful about the villain's identity. I'm not a huge fan of the TRANSFORMERS films, however I've liked what I have seen so far for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, and it'll be interesting to see how they use the Dinobots in the new film.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz, Sophia Myles and T.J. Miller will be released on June 27th, 2014.

I just dont get it!

Why do so many people hate Michael Bay? From what I can remember, I have loved all of his movies. (Well almost)

I mean, the Transformers movies are great fun, of course they are not going to be deep. Fans of transformers should want to see huge robots fighting, which is what happens.
As for his other movies, The Island, Pain and Gain, Bad Boys 1&2, Armageddon,- these are all wonderful.
Yeah, Pearl harbor sucked.......

The scene of Optimus Prime riding one of the Dinobots looks ridiculously funny

So if Galvatron is in this, does that mean Unicron is in it as well?

A flat faced, cab over semi?

So. Michael Bay is giving us back the original design for Optimus' altmode? Really? I'm shocked. That's actually halfway decent of him. Yeah the robot design is still too complicated, but at least it would appear that Optimus is looking more like his Gen-1 design.

We saw AN altmode in the trailer - and we've seen a new robot mode without any justification as to why Prime would NEED a new robot mode. Perhaps Prime gets a new altmode in the movie and the toy just spoiled that? I'm just spitballing here - but what if Prime gets really FFFFEd up and they have to rebuilt him in a drastic way to save him - resulting in the new body and classic altmode?

Bay is a perfect example of...

...a really good movie maker--cause he IS, really...he can make exciting, fast paced action films that are fun-- but he just doesn't "GET" the franchise. He doesnt GET what makes them cool in the first place or why people have liked it and continue to give these films a wide birth. It's like explaining a funny joke to your grandpa...he just wont get it:( ...most of the time. Not one robot pictured above looks REMOTELY like Galvatron...or like a revamped "version" of Galvatron. You could call

You could call this movie "Scary Robots" and it would be just as effective--I realize that it would never be JUST like the cartoon, but it's SO far off the mark, that it just makes it frustrating. The plot devices and throwing everything in but the kitchen sink are NOT what makes a compelling story...he breaks his own story rules whenever he needs it to in order to get to the next scene or set piece--he had them transform into a HUMAN chick-- I mean, that ALONE negates the whole premise when you can just IGNORE the limitations of the fiction just so you can have a funny DORM SCENE... I was excited to think that Galvatron was in fact the new villain--I thought that maybe he DID have a glimmer of what this was all about...so take my cash, BAY...I'll pick out the silver linings yet again and you'll get PAID. I'll try to not get annoyed at all the trimmings you think this franchise needs and take away what I can from it--next time you take a franchise, it wouldnt be such a bad thing to get some advisors that geek out over this stuff to guide the narrative a bit-- this movie would make bank whether you stuck with the tried and true formula you depend on or not. You put in SO much work just to be riddled with these obvious critiques... it's not fair to you, as a film maker, that with THIS particular property, youve been trivializing and tossing out the stuff that fans find REALLY important and the "important" stuff that you've been trying to inject into the story is just rubbish to the audience, cause it was never part of the narrative to begin with. Bah-- Im typing at the wind cause I had some time to kill...enjoy your paycheck...either way, all us fans of this thing are going to go see it JUST to find out if its good or not ANYWAYS. Your plan is working just fine whether you care about this property or not I guess-- this is just the ramblings of the long lost kid I used to be venting. Now I'll never be an extra! sniff...

Btw whats Mark Walhberg's character name because I can't help but think he'll be playing a grown up Sam Witwicky after I recently rewatched Pain & Gain.

According to IMDB - Cade Yeager.
That's a quality action hero name right there.

Why did they have to make the robots look so complicated? Why did they have to make the dinobots so huge? Anyone ever remember seeing prime ride Grimlock in the cartoons? These movies just get worse as they go.

Scrolling past the spoiler warning is literally the most interest I will ever muster up for this movie.

So Grimlock's robot arms become his dinosaur legs and his robot legs become his dinosaur tail. What a deeply confusing experience it must be for him to transform whilst running...

One more questions I been meaning to ask and wish I could get a answer to; was it Bay who had final word on the designs of the Transformers, like by saying "make them more complicated looking" or did the character design team come up with the look and Bay was like "We have wiener!" or maybe both happened.

That two-headed winged creature we saw in the trailer is actually part of the Dinobots. I remember some people claiming it was something else. But Micheal Bay has a way of changing beloved characters to fit what he thinks we all wanna see. Guess we just have to wait to see how this turns out.

Fantastic! Another Bayformers movie

Because who needs transformers in Transformers movies when you have army guys, gratuitous ass shots, 3rd grade level "humor", unfunny comic relief, racist and misogynistic stereotypes, and transformers who spend most of their time on screen in alt mode.

Hmm

I was ready to bash the hell out of Galvatron being a truck until I pulled up an image of my G1 Motormaster. The robot mode was pretty ridiculous. These toys look good and I'm willing to see where this movie goes. I might possibly be on board with Grimlock looking like a dragon if it's tied into the story nicely.

Oh come on! If they are going to introduce another big rig, why not Motormaster and combine his team into Menasor? Geeking out here.
