This leaves one question...

Do I want the Magnet or the Statue? Grr! Why can't we get both!?

I think additional viewings in home environment will be better where I can control the sound. I wish there was a feature on the blu ray that would let you edit out some of the more jarring shots of the film that gave me a headache the first time in IMAX...oh well.

I pre-ordered the Amazon set with the statue...that statue is awesome regardless and I will pay a little more for it despite my problems with the movie as a whole. I'm glad to see the full release coming so quickly as a low quality release now with a special edition release during holiday season would just be stupid. :BOT:


It sounds like you hated the movie? Why would you buy it or pay more for the cooler editions? I only paid $5 for Pacific Rim blu ray because I wasn't a big fan of it


Sub Prime,

I didn't completely hate the movie. I'm just getting a little tired of Bay's excessive camera angles, fast shot changes, and explosions. I do not have a huge sound system or anything like that...just a sound bar. I think the movie will be better on a small screen. I may change my mind and get a cheaper version as you said. If the statue was available by itself I would probably just do that. Funny you mentioned Pacific Rim. I kind of liked the movie and still paid $22 bucks for it when it came out...wish I had waited and got that one for $5 like you did. To each their own I guess. Maybe I have just talked myself out of the statue as my local TRU gave me the large Optimus riding Grimlock Display when they were done with it...no idea where I'm going to put that monster of a section yet...the electronics are still intact even :BOT:


That makes sense. I will agree that the theatre version had its issues.

1. I could barely understand some things being said.

2. Bay's styles is better on a smaller screen and I have a "47

3. With a Blu-Ray/DVD I can skip foward some parts I barely cared for especially with Transformers ROTF(I hated most human scenes)


I had looked forward to Pacific Rim after hearing so many good things about it, especially from people here on Seibertron.com. I was really disappointed. We didn't even finish watching the last 15 minutes of the movie. Not my kind of movie. It felt like I was watching the love child of Transformers and Avatar. My dislike of most "robot" anime and movies outside of Transformers was once again apparent while watching Pacific Rim. Not my type of movie.

To be honest, my movie tastes can be questionable. I am strongly influenced to ultimately have the opposite opinion. If someone tells me a movie is "really, awesome ... you have to go see it" it seems to build up my expectations so much that I just end up getting disappointed. Whereas with Battleship, I had heard so many terrible things about that movie that I enjoyed the campiness of it all. Go figure.

No review are shitting on TMNT for reasons I find questionable.

They hate a white guy playing Shredder

The Foot Clan is not like the old movies.

They hate the size of the Turtles and the fact that they seem somewhat overpowered.

They also say the foot clans plan is illogical and festered with plot holes.


But I like IGNs review of TMNT.

Guys that shot with Bee and his arm cannon was not in the movie itself (i have a bootleg given to me by a friend)


It seams this is part of a deleted scene like the dancing scene from one of the spots


I wonder if we are getting some robot deleted scenes like the ROTF walmart bluray edition that had an extended Forrest battle (where Grindor actually did something)

Plus i remember during filming Leadfoot was filmed (same place where the photo of him came from) being chased by black Cemetary wind SUV's like the ones in Ratchet's death scene with Bumblebee and there was some shooting sound effects (they were not actually shooting but it was sounds of it presumably going to be cgi in) and Leadfoot's car stopped and was srounded by SUV's and Bee kept going

I assume that Leadfoot's death was going to be an actual scene instead of on a camera but they either thought to not introduce Bee there (as Bee was with Leadfoot) or they just cut it for time.

Hopefully we get some deleted scenes

I am a kaiju fan and I thought the movie was like a little brother to Godzilla(2014) which was also great, but Battleship was for me a failed strive for bay after transformers and I thought it was an okay movie. But I also have bought into the marvel movies ( I didn't care much for it until the movies came out) and The avengers IMO was by far better than battleship.

Doesn't look like it at this point.

Though, this topic's for the movie, rather than the toys.

Yes we are getting a Stinger toy


the leaked toy lists suggests he was going to be in wave 3 but was replaced by Snarl


the 2014 deluxe Bumblebee's car parts are just shellformer so i believe they will remold him by replacing the Camaro parts with Pagani parts




Will probably be a Walmart exclusive.

Worth of notice is that movie came about a week(more or less)later in my country compared to others,so that movie wouldn't have to compete for attenttion with FIFA world cup Brazil 2014.

Those DVDs/Blu-rays look sweet.I like how they did and definitive version at first,instead of simply making a single release then doing one with all cool bonus stuff.
This statue looks pretty awesome,kinda like those other movie statues,but smaller and less expensive(proportionally).These mini figs also look cool.

At BotCon, it was said at the Hasbro booth in the dealer room that they started working on a Deluxe Stinger figure, but that production on it wasn't completed. And at the Hasbro panel, they announced that all of the AOE stuff they showed would be the rest of the main line till the end of the year, with next year switching over to the new series in the Spring.

I hope they manage to sneak in Stinger in the next lines,even if they arent directly related to the movies,kinda like they did with Cyberverse Evac and Mirage.

Stingers death was epic. Some might say it was stupid as Bee hit a bus while killing Stinger. I can't wait for the BluRay copy so I can rewind certain parts that stood out.

I loved Stinger when he was shooting at Bee and Hound on top of the building with that sweet roll he did to avoid Bee's shot.



I also loved that right before Strafe picked up Bee you could see Stinger beating him up i just wished we got to see what led up to it.


Maybe it will be a deleted scene since so much seems to be missing from the movie.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Opens in Japan - Interview with Bay, Wahlberg and More

Postby Va'al » Thu Aug 07, 2014 10:57 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Coinciding with the release of Transformers: Lost Age in Japan this week, the Japan Times has posted a fairly lengthy article with interviews with the main cast and crew. Featuring comments by director Michael Bay, leading cast members Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, and Nicola Peltz, the article, posted here, looks at various aspects of the movie, its production and different people's take on it - check out some sections below!

His latest, “Transformers: Age of Extinction," promises more of the action and explosions Bay is known for, but the director reportedly almost didn’t take the job this time around. He’s not saying why, but he admits he was “prevailed upon. Expertly." Coming back on board for a fourth time, he decided to make a few changes to the franchise. In particular, he didn’t want the robots to look too much like toys.

“I understand the need to draw an audience of kids and the global considerations, but I wanted to be involved with something that had a longer-lasting, even cerebral appeal. And I don’t want to be tied - artistically or in people’s minds - to ‘Transformers’ after ‘Transformers,' " he says, perhaps alluding to the series’ planned fifth installment.

While the Japanese roots of “Transformers” may be apparent in the design of the robotic heroes and villains of the film, the “global considerations” Bay refers to come mainly from the newly important Chinese market.

“Transformers: Age of Extinction” was partly financed by Chinese backers, has Chinese product placement and co-stars Li Bingbing as the owner of a factory manufacturing Transformers for a U.S. outfit named KSI. Bay says that cooperation between China and the United States for future filmmaking ventures will be important. The tendency of Hollywood to cast the citizens of foreign nations in villainous roles might be coming to an end if that’s the case, I suggest, to which Bay replies, “I don’t think the Chinese see themselves as villains. They do want to be admired."

[...]

Grammer, who played the titular role in the popular U.S. sitcom “Frasier” (1993-2004) takes on the role of Harold Attinger, the paranoid head of an elite CIA unit.

“His name’s Harold - isn’t that a perfect, anal-retentive, paranoiac name?" Grammer says with a grin. “Then you have Cade, pretty much an average Joe, and his daughter Tessa (Peltz) - these wonderful names! Stanley Tucci is this arrogant technocrat (head of KSI) who wants to make and control his own Transformers, and his name is Joshua Joyce. It’s a bit comic-bookey, but it really works on screen."

“Transformers: Age of Extinction” has succeeded in drawing in a large audience despite replacing its cast, and Grammar believes this is because the film brings back the real draw - familiar robotic characters.

I thought Stinger was cool, but I felt no emphasis on the character throughout the movie. I felt he was a higher advanced drone. But the way he dies is pretty awesome. And I hope they have a deleted scene of the autobots going after stinger because They disappear through that whole scene

I bet that there is a whole bunch of deleted scenes in this movie. If you go to YouTube and watch a bunch of TF4 filming videos there is a whole bunch of things that weren't seen in the movie. Some examples, the large explosions at a Chinese pagoda in Detroit, Cade running towards the camera with his gun-blade in Hong Kong, Stinger tailing the Autobots in Hong Kong, the sports cars driving around in Hong Kong, the argument with an Asian guy and two cops, Shane almost hitting a couple of people in the Texas street chase, Shane's car being blocked by Attinger's men, the Autobots rolling in Hong Kong in an alley, and so much more.

I'm not really expecting any deleted scenes to make it to the DVD/Blu-Ray versions since, well, the last three films' DVDs/Blu-Rays were devoid of deleted scenes.

No, ROTF's IMAX version doesn't count since those were put into the feature presentation, just as they were when that film aired on IMAX. So those scenes weren't completely "deleted".

That's true, if anything we'll probably get the usual stuff. A behind the scenes doc, a look at designing the new bots, a doc about the significance of filming in China, and maybe, just maybe a music vid.
