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.
Considering that the owner of that tumblr does a lot of original fan art herself, and that the only places Google's reverse image search find the image are on that tumblr, and more recently on this forum, I'm still inclined to say she's the original artist.
the machine of instant death
Here's the original. I saw this forever ago
Thanks yep i love to draw, also i would love to see new series!
Yeah, we saw V Drift and V Lockdown IIRC in the same listings leak.
And yet at the same time it could also not explain it… SPLIT LIP pointed out in another thread that apparently Lockdown has Voyager listing too…
Your definition of "the same" appears to be different than mine.
That would be awesome!
Uh…did anyone realize that the one faction symbol is the same one used on Sharkticon Megatron? That might mean something.
Lockdown, Galvatron, Stinger, and Mystery Car/TF
Well if there already out in Canada like over a month before street date, I don't see why it couldn't happen any earlier?
That explains the voyager listing for Drift.
I really hope the street date is the 1st.
What leaked script did you read? I have one about time travel, but if you can share the one you have that's different, I'd love to read it.
Just gonna throw this out there since I already did in a fanart thread where Drift was photoshopped with proper colors, but take I think TheSoundwave was close when he said they look like rotor blades…
Look at the center of them on his back, and how they're attached to something that looks like it should spin, very much like a helicopter rotor.
Then also remember teh gold KREON of Drift that had the helicopter rotor blades as an accessory…
Drift is a triple changer at some point. Those ARE helicopter blades, no doubt about it. Look how different they are compared to his sword, and how similar they are to actual helicopters. He's got to turn into a cybertronian helicopter or something, otherwise he'd mass shift to be a Bugatti later on.
Actually I don't if there was a thread for that with a hi-resolution
Not the best but Out of all 4 movies, AoE has the most good designs
agent j 15
…Holy shit, guys…
I have nothing bad to say about this.
Bumblebee looks cool! Drift looks awesome! Hound reminds me of my Uncle Greg if he suddenly decided to grow his beard back out and start fucking shit up! Lockdown is OH MY GOD THAT FACE OF HIS IT'S SO GODDAMN BEAUTIFUL.
TAKE ME NOW TF4. TAKE ME NOW AND MAKE ME YOUR BITCH.
I'M REALLY FUCKING EXCITED IS ALL.
by 2 years i meant 2015 and 2016. not counting 2017 as that will be a movie era. while 2015-2016 wont therefore 2 years without Bayformers…..again….
