Here's something a little different for movie-goers, car enthusiasts and those of you planning on making the trip to Age of Extinction in style: Volo Auto Museum is putting up for grabs a chance to drive to the '77 Camaro from the 2007 movie to the film premiere in McHenry, IL, as well as entry to the show and a meal for two! Read on below for more information, and head to museum's site to find out how to enter.
VOLO — Imagine watching the new “Transformers” movie from a Transformer.
One lucky Volo Auto Museum visitor will do just that.
The winner of a sweepstakes ongoing now will drive Bumblebee, the beloved Camaro that Shia LaBeouf’s character, Sam Witwicky, bought in the original 2007 film. The ride will begin at the museum, 27582 Volo Village Road, and travel to the McHenry Outdoor Theater at Chapel Hill and Lincoln roads on the opening night of “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” anticipated to be June 27.
The winner and a date not only will get to drive and ride in the highly recognizable yellow and black ’77 Camaro, but also will be provided with free admission to the show as well as dinner from the concession stand.
“Normally our Star Cars are behind the museum ropes, untouchable,” said Brian Grams, museum director. “This is an exceptionally rare and exciting opportunity.”
Each museum admission wristband purchased between now and June 12 is a potential sweepstakes entry. Enter the number printed on the admission wristband at www.volocars.com/transformers-sweepstakes.htm. The winner must be 18 and hold a valid driver’s license. The winning entry will be announced June 13.
“I’m excited about this. This is cool,” said Scott Dehn, owner of the McHenry Outdoor. “Brian approached me with the idea and I said ‘Let’s do it!’”
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” is the fourth installment in the series that begins with an adolescent Sam Witwicky discovering that his first car, a somewhat bedraggled Camaro, is, in fact, a Transformer named Bumblebee.
“Some people have nicknamed it the Beater Bee,” Grams said of Volo’s screen-used car. “It’s definitely one that people recognize … it has character.”
Showing up at “Transformers: Age of Extinction” in the car that started it all should make for an exceptionally memorable movie-viewing experience, he added.
“The winners will be in the spotlight,” Grams said. “I hope they like attention.”
Volo Auto Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and features roughly 300 classic, antique, muscle and Hollywood cars — all indoors. For information, visit www.volocars.com or call 815-385-3644.
Hot on the heels of last night's Transformers: Age of Extinction Super Bowl teaser trailer, Seibertron.com is pleased to present the first figure in the new movie line, First Edition Optimus Prime! While remaining for the most part unchanged during the duration of the previous three live action films, Optimus Prime will undergo a radical overhaul at some point during Age of Extinction, shedding his Peterbuilt 379 vehicle mode and upgrading to a customized Western Star. Likewise his robot mode will see some significant alterations. Being an Amazon exclusive, this figure features a ton of chrome and comes in special collectors style packaging. We've compared the figure to multiple other Primes to convey it's size and scale. Without further ado we give you Transformers: Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime!
YouTube user Tunglebrek dropped by to share a video montage he created featuring every single transformation sequence from the previous three Transformers live action films. Sit back and enjoy over 10 minutes of pure piston pumping, gear grinding awesomeness in beautiful 1080p.
Every single transformation from the Hasbro Cinematic Universe Transformers Film Trilogy, Directed by Michael Bay, in Stunning HD! Props to ILM, Digital Domain and co for their good work, also sound designer Erik Aadahl and his team, and to Excedrin (for my head)

And here.. we.. are! The 48th Super Bowl has kicked off with one team doing something better than the other team, but the second team looks like it's-- Let's face it. Whether you're into sports or not, we all know the real reason why we're here, really - Transformers: Age of Extinction has finally showed us a trailer! We already saw a still earlier today, and our very own Seibertron is busy preparing a frame-by-frame gallery, which will go up later tonight. But for now, take a(nother) look at the Baytastic robofest embedded below!
Here's a breakdown of the Bayhem taking place in the scenes we can figure out:
- Giant spaceship exits smoke and fog, with robot character advancing menacingly on foot beneath it, possibly LOCKDOWN/GALVATRON?
- Tessa and Cade are clearly caught in the middle of a fight between 'Lockdown' and OPTIMUS PRIME, who proceeds to get shot through the chest by his opponent -- as 'Galvatron's' face turns into a gun.
- Different scene, different robot character - possibly STINGER - slices through a red car, as a fleet of spaceships heads towards Earth.
- Shane, Cade and Tessa flee from a series of massive explosions.
- Upside down OPTIMUS, held captive by another robot, who appears to be retracting an arm weapon.
- CROSSHAIRS para-shooting between some flying vehicles.
- Tessa cries out for her dad, Cade, as she appears trapped in a car. Cade runs towards her, and prepares to punch something in slow-motion.
- Optimus rolls sideways out of an explosion's way.
- BUMBLEBEE jumps upwards, also out of an explosion's way -- and is met by double-headed flying STRAFE!
- Optimus shown sword in hand, riding GRIMLOCK, who appears to be made out of limey, mossy rock, as they burst out of Chinese architecture.
Reno Wilson, who provided voices Frenzy, Mudflap, and Brains in the previous Transformers films, will be returning for the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction. The tweet has since been removed, but he posted the following last month:
Just finished a v.o. session for Michael Bay, who is a genius! Each one better than the last! #Transformers4 #Brains
Could Brains and Wheelie have survived the crash of the Decepticon war ship in Transformers: DOTM, and be returning for the upcoming film? Perhaps he will be lending his voice to an all new character, we'll just have to wait and see.
And now, courtesy of Paramount International's YouTube page, we have what may be our first still image from the upcoming trailer. It's a little hit or miss as to what devices can see it on Paramount's YouTube page. Check it out below, and tell us what you think in the Energon Pub.
Keep an optic here for updates as the day goes by, and we get more images of the new film!
A news submission by a tipster known only as Lg, has provided the first retail sighting, with visual proof, of the First Edition Optimus Prime figure. This is a Leader Class size mold, with special chrome detailing and paint. It includes no electronics, so no light and sound gimmicks.
It is one of the first figures to feature Hasbro's new simplified transformations within the movie toyline. This is not the samd figure we were shown at NYCC back in '13, in case anyone might have been confused by the different look and deco.
As we reported, previously, this figure was available for a very limited time on Amazon and there are reports stating that allotment of figures has begun shipping to the customers. Our very own Seibertron is one of those customers and will have an upcoming gallery available shortly after it's arrival.
Until then, these photos will have to whet your whistle.
Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
