Seibertron.com member robotmel provided us with some exciting Age Of Extinction toy news, late last week, and now we have pictures of the Grimlock set courtesy of this Facebook post
from Transformers Dioramas. And that's not all! Thanks to Seibertron.com member Primeultimus's discovery, we now have confirmation that there is an Optimus set, as well.
Toys R Us will be carrying a line of exclusives called the Evolution 2-Pack, which features an AoE figure (either Deluxe Class or Voyager Class) paired with an older generation figure, redecoed to match their original G1 counterparts.
As of now, the only images available are those of the Grimlock set. This set features AoE Voyager Class Grimlock paired with Energon Grimlock
, redecoed in G1 colors!
We will update with the product images as soon as they become available.
robotmel provided the names of the upcoming sets for the upcoming 2-Packs. Keep these names handy for when you go hunting on May 17th!

Browsing down their lists of Transformers figures I spotted listings for upcoming items from what I believe to be part of the immenent Age of Extinction line with a twist.
Transformers Grimlock - Then and Now
Transformers Dinobot Slug - Then and Now
Transformers Strafe - Then and Now
Transformers Bumblebee - Then and Now
The Toys R Us assistant confirmed there are prices against each one but wasn't allowed to quote the prices as they where subject to changes, but confirmed the Grimlock Then and Now was considerably more than the other three.
It should be noted that the official packaging images state Evolution 2-Pack. "Then and Now" may just be an internal TRU naming system.
Primeultimus uncovered the previously unmentioned Optimus set.
