Finally, it seems as though we have our first look at the Renders of Transformers: Age Of Extinction robots. Now, we know that there is quite a lot of Far Art circulating. But, if you look closely you can see that the Renders of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are near identical to the Kids Costumes we saw not too long ago. Also, we get our first look at Dinobot Grimlock.
We are yet to confirm the origin of these images. They were first published by ACToys; who were pretty reliable in the past.
Check out the images after the jump.
I wish everyone could see these!!!
This is the perfect rebuttle to all those "Reviewers" and "Critics" out there who have said that the reason the toys have all this kibble, and shell forming is because it is "impossible" to translate the new TF models to plastic. I've always said that these new movie models are not too much different that the prior movie lines. There is slight increases to the curvature and aerodynamics of the models, but nothing incredibly different than before.
I don't really care for him having chest windows, but I do wish he had more elements of his vehicle. Even if his windows were buttflaps I wouldn't care. Maybe the in-film model will have them, since this is obviously some poor quality mimic of the design for box art and promotional stuffs.
Yeah… and Bumblebee has both a new and old vehicle too.
Meh. I personally am not a fan of Prime's new look. Where the heck are the iconic chest windows he's almost always had?
Grimlock and Prime are looking good.
I'm personally not sold on the designs yet. They could work in a cartoon, but don't feel like they would mesh in a live action movie, and would have to rely on a lot of cheating to properly transform. However, since these are early renders without any realistic lighting or grime, etc, that opinion could change. I think the (original) movie aesthetic is just about the only way TFs can be approached in a live action setting and not look ridiculously out of place, but I will allow myself the possibility of being convinced otherwise.
Kinda? Based on what he is saying, you can make an extremely educated (and mostly correct) guess on what happens at the end (assuming it's the end).
Agree. The iconic windshield is now gone!
It's cool they're going with the TFP asethetic this time and not the Terminator style designs we've seen in the trilogy.
Looks terribad. If it resembles it remotely, as the leader of the Autobots, I won't stand for a crap looking Prime. Seriously though, I don't like how he looks…which is a bit of an understatement.
a clip of optimus talking near what seems to be the end of the movie?
Does anyone think there will only be Grimlock, There will be 2 Dinobots, 3, 4 or 5 Dinobots?
Not digging this look at all. Bring back the real Movie Prime!
Speaking of final renders I hope he has more red on him.
Since we went digital the "red bleeds from film" problem isn't relevant anymore.
I have to admit I am really digging Primes new look, very 'Gundam,' very awesome…and that laser shield???!!!! AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! but in terms of Bumblebee he looks more like a protoform….there is even a bit of that with Prime. I'm sure other fans can side with this, even since the beginning part of the fun with transformers was getting to see the car parts on the robot and where they lay…but now it seems like they are transformed so much you lose some of that, we even got to see some if this with the dreads in DOTM, but then again these are not close up, not super final. All in all I am liking the new looks, but I just hope we don't lose all the car parts in the robot because then we start to see a lack of realism……
well then I must've missed all those posts talking about how it wasnt the 'real deal' or detailed and weathered enough. These pics are about as detailed as the models we've gotten in the past on stuff like box art so i'm not sure why anyone would expect anything different/more. They're slapped together pretty quickly by a seperate party not associated with the movie so i dunno. Not sure what people would be expecting
I did! autocorrect strikes again!
nope, no one confused those two things.
I think you meant "separately," and the Optimus Prime shown here is clearly shown to feature parts from the film vehicle being used. So no, not done separately.
Then your confirmation is probably not the one we're looking for. Thanks for playing.
It's funny how the only thing I'm getting from this is we really got f'd with that new supposed leader class OP toy. I thought it looked like crap before, but now realizing it looks NOTHING like the CG model, I'm going with total feces.
I guess the words 'style guide renders' mean 'million dollar movie quality cgi' to some people xD
This looks like the kinds if stuff we'll see on box art and stuff. That stuffs always done desperately from the actual movie models and are inherently less detailed
I'm not confirming this stuff is legit, as I honestly have no idea or access to anything regarding the movie, but this looks like the stuff that'd be used for box art and general merchandise and tshirts and random stuff like that.
