The Facebook page Transformers Game has uploaded an image of Bumblebee in his Transformers: Age of Extinction incarnation, taken from the upcoming videogame Rise of the Dark Spark. Check it out in the image below, mirrored for those of you without Facebook access.
We had a very brief clip last week from the New York International Auto Show 2014, showing off some of the Chevrolet vehicles appearing in the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. Thanks to YouTube channel The Vintage Car Show we get an extended look at the three vehicles on show: 2014 Chevrolet Camaro, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray and the Sonic RS, the first two respectively Bumblebee and Crosshairs in the movie. Check it out in the video embedded below, which also includes clips from the Chevrolet Age of Extinction promotional ad, showing the vehicles in action alongside the Chevy Trax SUV, as the mass-produced Stinger character.
Fellow Seibertron.com user 5150 Cruiser has spotted a new video upload on the official Steve Jablonsky YouTube channel. The clip, while not showing any images other than the Decepticon logo from Transformers: Age of Extinction, plays around three minutes of music, from a track apparently titled 'Truck'. This is quite probably part of the new movie's score, given the similarities with previous tracks, and can be heard in the embedded video below!
Samsung recently celebrated the launch of their curved UHD TV in the UK by constructing a seven screen structure at the top of London's Gherkin which gave attendees a look at exclusive footage from Transformers Age of Extinction. This event and footage was captured and uploaded to Youtube. Check out the videos from juggulag1234,유강현 and BroadcastExchange.
Previously, Shanghai GM revealed a Chevy Trax Transformer with its robot mode in silhouette. Now, evolife gives us a look at the robot mode via an official statue by Chevrolet. We still have no confirmation of the identity of the Chevy Trax Transformer although several of the vehicles were filmed driving with Galvatron. Evolife also shows us a nice image of a Bumblebee statue. You can check out the images below.
Courtesy of Youtube user Transformers and Power Rangers Toy Reviews, via a tip from fellow Seibertron.com user Fires_Of_Inferno we get a look at two of the simplified Robots in Disguise line from the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. Check out below the embedded videos for Flip and Change Grimlock and Smash and Change Optimus Prime, clearly designed for increased rough play value and endurance rather than transformation or variation in poses.
Chevrolet has issued a new press release regarding their involvement in Transformers: Age of Extinction. As we all know Chevrolet has had their vehicles prominently displayed and used for alt modes in all three past live action movies, and Transformers: Age of Extinction will continue that tradition. Their vehicles appearing in the upcoming film include the Camaro, Corvette, Trax, and Sonic. The full press release can be found below:
Chevrolet Returns to the Big Screen This Summer in Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction”
Brand has been involved in all four Transformers films
New installment features Chevrolet Camaro, Corvette Stingray, Sonic and Trax
DETROIT – Chevrolet and a Camaro that converts into the iconic Bumblebee will once again turn heads when the Transformers movie franchise returns to screens around the globe in the upcoming “Transformers: Age of Extinction” from director Michael Bay, in theaters June 27.
The latest film also features Chevrolets sold around the world including a Corvette Stingray that converts to Autobot Crosshairs, a Trax and a Sonic outfitted as a Rally Car.
The fifth-generation Camaro converted into Bumblebee in the 2007 film “Transformers,” the 2009 film “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and the 2011 film “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” The latest edition features two Camaros specifically built for the film, one a heavily modified vintage 1967 Camaro SS and the other a futuristic concept Camaro.
“The Transformers movies have been a great partnership for Chevrolet by allowing us to introduce our vehicles to new fans, young and old, around the world,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Now for the fourth time, you’ll see a Camaro as a heroic Autobot, a fitting role for one of the stars of Chevrolet’s lineup.”
Said LeeAnne Stables, executive vice president of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships for Paramount Pictures: “The Chevrolet partnership with this iconic Michael Bay movie franchise has become one of the longest-running and most innovative movie-brand relationships in film history. This new Chevy campaign will definitely bring new and exciting elements to a global audience of Transformers movie fans around the world.”
In addition to providing vehicles for the production, General Motors’ locations for filming included GM Design at the Warren Technical Center, the Milford Proving Ground and the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant.

Our Brazilian friends over at Transformers: Dioramas bring us more Transformers news, and this time, it's a 30th Anniversary special franchise spanning exhibition in São Paulo. The news comes to us via IDW artist Marcelo Matere's Facebook page, who has prepared a special celebratory poster for the event, featuring Optimus Prime in both G1 and current movieverse styles (mirrored below). The free, officially endorsed by Hasbro Brazil exhibition will run from 17th April to 4th May, featuring a 'tunnel of time' with figures from the past thirty years of our favourite transforming robots iterations, as well as giant Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron and Optimus Prime statues and cut-outs. Check out both images below, and head here for more information!
Quite a while back we reported on Chester Bennington of Linkin Park claiming that it 'made total sense' for the band to be working on Transformers: Age of Extinction, seeing their past relationship with the previous films. In a recent episode of Tweet Out, on Geek Nation, however, band member and director Joe Hahn was asked whether Linkin Park will be working with Steve Aoki on the movie, and gave an ambiguously negative response. Does this mean they won't be returning? Will Imagine Dragons take over for the first installment of the Transformers new trilogy? Or does it just mean they will not be collaborating with Aoki, but still feature? Check out the answer in the embebbed video below (06:25) and speculate away in the Energon Pub!
