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

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.

We have our first Transformers: Age of Extinction TV toys commercial! As expected, the focus is on the simpler figures for now, showing off the play value of One-Step Optimus Prime and Flip and Change Grimlock in a live-action setting (which looks like an archaeological excavation site) mixed with CGI characters (mainly the two robots). Not as expected, this particular clip is in Polish, and hails from the MegaDyskont store channel - but still fairly understandable to non-Polish speakers, really. Check it out below!

Hasbro Australia has updated their online product catalog with a couple of new official images of the Leader Class Transformers: Age of Extinction Grimlock figure. What's interesting about these images is they differ from the official images that we given earlier this year at Toy Fair. As you can see in the new images mirrored below Grimlock now has chrome on his chest, legs, and dino head. We've included the original official images below for comparison. Check 'em out below:

Just a reminder to help you on May 17th, when the toyline is officially released. (And when some stores break that release date.) Back on January 9th, we posted an article which contained Target's DPCI numbers for the upcoming Transformers Age Of Extinction toy line.

This list also confirms the higher price points we had heard about earlier this year at Toy Fair back in February. However, some items seem to be priced lower than expected, such as some of the smaller Constructbots offerings.

As a courtesy, we are reposting this information now that the release of these toys is getting closer. The street date for the Age of Extinction toy line is May 17th, but several stores have already put the Age of Extinction toys on shelves in limited locations.

We've reported on the various versions of newly redesigned Optimus Prime, from First Editions to Leader Class, but the one everyone seemed to really take notice of was the Voyager Optimus with the shotgun that looked like Megatron's from DOTM and what seemed to be a flat nose alt mode. Turns out he's what everyone thought he was at Toy Fair and thanks to official images, we've seen more detail and the overall design, but we haven't seen the one aspect everyone has wanted to see, and that's the transformation. Well, that is, until now.

Thanks to YouTube reviewer Darryl Laughy we get a look at the actual Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime figure!

You can see the figure, the transformation and hear Mr. Laughy's thoughts by checking out the video review embedded below.

A PDF has surfaced online that contains what is likely Hasbro's slide presentation from the recent Australian Toy Fair. These images give us idea for what they have in store for the Transformers brand through 2017. As we already know the main focus for the remainder of 2014 will be Transformers: Age of Extinction, however the slides reveal an "Animated Stunt" scheduled for the fourth quarter. The slides go on to reveal years 2015 and 2016 are labeled "Animated" with some interesting new faction logos! The live action film franchise returns in 2017. The slides also include some nice concept and promo art from Transformers: Age of Extinction giving us some new looks at the upcoming film characters.
