Hasbro Transformers Promotional Material – Age Of Extinction Concept Art, Merchandise, TF5 And More


Hasbro Transformers license holder Vilsco Textiles is providing a treasure trove in content from the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Thanks to the site, fans are treated with Concept Art featuring not only Optimus Prime and Bumblebee but also Hound, Drift, Lockdown and Grimlock.

The content also sheds light on some key factors such as Hasbro’s upcoming plans for the franchise as well as how the Transformers 4 Toy Isles will look like.

Regarding the concept art, it is clear that the characters had not undergone major changes considering their final looks we see these days. The concept artwork we see today was previously seen during the principal photography of TF4 as Clapperboard Images and Robot Poles. Also among the concept art is the elusive Silver Knight Optimus Prime. There seems to be a moment where Optimus activates or bonds with Grimlock (kind of like what happened in Eragon/How To Train Your Dragon) in the movie. And the Hound concept art is similar to the Transformers: Prime Bulkhead concept art we saw back in 2010. Speaking of years… the concept art dates back to 2012, indicating that they have started working on the 4th movie as soon as the 3rd was over.

Moving onto Hasbro’s plans. In 2017 we will see Transformers 5. The placeholder logo for the 5th Movie is included with the plans. Video Game news we’ve heard before and there will be 2 new Animated Features planned for the first quarter of 2015 and for the first quarter of 2016. The cartoons feature new faction logos and that’s something worth investigating into. The cartoon will run for 2 years, bridging the gap between Age Of Extinction and Transformers 5 just like what Transformers: Prime did.

Other than these contents, you’ll also find some upcoming merchandise such as Earphones, USB Chargers, Keyrings etc. as well.

Checkout the cool images we’ve mirrored, after the jump.

    That last picture of Optimus touching Grimlock's nose is reminding me of the bonding scene in How To Train Your Dragon.

    Holy shit Lockdown is so damn cool.

    Hound looks really sweet, too. He's a fatty-fat though. Funny how none of his movie toys are fat. Maybe he won't be in the movie?

    EDIT: And yeah, Drift is black and gold there. Deffinitely old concept art.

    Hound's (early?) design is clearly based on Bulkhead. The underbite being reimagined into a full robo-beard.

    Lockdown's visor face appears to be a face mask.

    Drift's color change to blue and black was possibly at Bugatti's request.

    The more I see of Hound the more he looks like he should have been Bulkhead.
