The Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art continues to roll out! This morning we have images from artist Josh Nizzi's website that give us his take on several of the characters from the film plus a few that didn't end up on screen. These include three very impressive looking Cybertronian Knights. We also get a closer look at many of the weapons seen in the film. Of particular interests are the images he's labeled "Creator Hand". During the film's opening sequence the only glimpse of the aliens cyberforming prehistoric Earth is a fleshy organic hand. These have a much more bio-mech feel to them.
We've mirrored a selection of his images below, many more can be viewed by clicking here.

We have even more Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art to share. This time form artist Michael Hritz via the Concept Robots Blog. Below we have a trio of bots commissioned by Polaris based on their ATV's. They didn't make it into the film, but still great to see the designs. Check 'em out below, for more artist commentary visit the Concept Robots Blog.
This was based on a new version of Polaris RZR makes which reminds me of an angry little gorilla in that it is small but extremely tough with its performance/handling and styling. It was only fitting to make it into one. The transformation is fairly simple: the hood becomes the chest, the wheels become fists and shoulders, the fenders become muscle elements on the thigh and biceps areas, the trailing arms become femurs, the roll cage stays where it is. I figure this would be an Autobot.
This was an alternative to the red angry gorilla design but based on the same vehicle. It is loosely inspired by Demolishor. Trying to keep the same feeling as the gorilla but not so organic (more deception-feeling) so I made it into more of a small tank, armed to the teeth, with an all terrain attitude. For this complex transformation the wheels merge into one "track", the hood and face move into the center with the eyes hanging out on the side to see around the track, the rear fenders become rocket pods and the suspension becomes the inner structure.
This one is a new road-based vehicle that Polaris will release shortly. I tried to make this one contrast the other two by being faster-looking, lighter and using blade weapons. I think it could pass for a Deception or Autobot. The transformation is simple, the front rims become the blades on the hands, the hood becomes the chest, a rear vent feature becomes a hood, the funky drivetrain becomes the spine and "leg".
After our first round of Age of Extinction concept art from Ken Christiansen, he has posted additional art on his Facebook page featuring Grimlock and Lockdown.
Ken will also be appearing at Capitol City Comic Con in Austin, Tx this coming weekend where you can pick his brain about initial design choices for Grimlock and Lockdown. You can see the announcement on his blog.
Concept designer and artist Emiliano Santalucia has updated his blog with his character model for Megatron for the Transformers brand bible. The design was referenced for both the The Ultimate Pop-Up Universe and The Covenant of Primus. Check out his design below, you can read a few of his words on the concept by visiting his blog.
Age Of Extinction has dominated the box office and continues to do so, with it's current worldwide tally at $576,295,954. With numbers like this, it's no surprise that Bay has become a bankable director, but until now, we had no idea just how bankable.
Courtesy of Nelson, over at MichaelBay.com, we now have confirmation that not only has the Transformers franchise helped Michael become the second highest grossing director, but his highest grossing film? Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen!
This is big news, because Bay's box office take has surpassed the likes of George Lucas, Ron Howard, Tim Burton and even James Cameron! See for yourself, below:
This past weekend Michael Bay became the second-highest-grossing director of all time. Congratulations Michael.

And who happens to be number one? Transformers producer Stephen Spielberg!
Michael Bay is widely known as being one of the hardest working directors out there (quite possibly the number one, his work ethic is extreme) and his hard work has paid off. Seibertron.com would like to congratulate Michael Bay on this success and wish him the best.
