UK Toy Fair 2014 Day 2 Transformers Toy & Merchandise News

Transformers-4-Age-Of-Extinction-UK-Toy-Fair-2014

TFW2005 Boards member Soundwavedotm had the privilege to visit UK Toy Fair 2014 and to see the Transformers: Age of Extinction toyline from Hasbro… and hear about the trailer.

At the moment he’s sending us the details. Watch this space and the associated thread for the latest news as we receive it.

According to Soundwavedotm, details of the first trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction were revealed at the show floor and it will feature Grimlock (this newsie assumes that the Dinobots’ presence in the 4th installment is not a spoiler anymore).

The first two waves of the toyline will feature most of the main cast. This was a huge issue with Dark of the Moon’s toyline as many great Cybertronians were left out without a toy. Hasbro, you are doing it right.

Some of the toys he saw: Optimus Prime (Voyager and Leader), Bumblebee, Drift (Bugatti Veyron), Crosshairs (now we have the name confirmed), Lockdown (Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4) and Grimlock in his t-rex mode.

The Generations line was also spotted… and they all looked good (*sighs of relief from many fans*).

More to come. Stay tuned with TFW2005.

    Ok guys......the low down......

    Am on my phone btw so bare with me, hasbro booth was heavily secure felt like Fort Knox but there was some items on display but a majority are being held back till the US toy fair for certain reasons.

    First being the trailer would of aired (revealing grimlock)
    Second the first two waves confirm most of the cast line up (they are doing things very different to the previous toy lines)
    Third being the story line that is being used in this film is very unique.

    I can't reveal loads as you are taken through some strict checks as a trader and my friend runs a toy business that could get hit hard on the discovery of me leaking information but I can reveal the items I saw included;

    Optimus prime leader and voyager
    Bumblebee
    Drift (surprised by his look but loved it!) the license for drift was easy to obtain hence the 2007 move plus they loved his robot mode I was told.
    Crosshairs
    Lockdown (who is very sexy, anyone remember footage of him chasing the rusty truck cough OPTIMUS cough, hint as to a scene there)
    Grimlock - only saw dino mode looks to transform

    The items on show looked good for the generations line

    In terms of the jousters nothing on display but all will be revealed at US toy fair plus we have a guide catalog on its way to is in the next month.

    I didn't spend long in the booth a matter of mear minutes discussing products and shipments but got tidbits about the film plans though. There is more on show tomorrow too.

    So can we assume that Lockdown is the main Decepticon? Or is there a higher commander *cough* Galvatron *cough*?

    Appreciate what you could share! I think I'll be looking more forward to the Super Bowl trailer than the game given I'm a Denver fan and won't be particularly enjoying the game lol
