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.
From the same site, we've gotten a look at a wide variety of possible Transformers: Age of Extinction merchandise. Some of it is just at concept stage right now, but there are some pretty interesting possibilities here.
