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.

I haven't been an enormous fan of many of the directions Transformers has taken as a brand since I started collecting in 2009. But I try to always keep an open mind, so this new direction could very well be cool

I'm definitely going to start referring to movie Hound as "Truck Dynasty".

Honestly the new designs from AOE are growing on me. I'm liking the smoother appearance, less car parts and more "coated" armor.

This is curious:



I'm guessing that is a lion, but it really looks like a bat to me. Ratbat led Decepticons anybody?

Those "animated" things interest me greatly.
Could it be that we'll be getting the Beast Wars equivilant of the Alignedvers?

Pretty interesting indeed.

I wonder if those faction logos are just placeholders. The second one, with the unicorn looking face, was the original Aligned-verse Predacon logo before they settled on the one that's on all the toys and Prime show items. There are test shots of Ripclaw and Sinnertwinstrike that show them with that logo.

I have a feeling we're looking at, possibly, a new Beast Wars.

its a shame the hound toy looks nothing like that.

I really hope it's not a Beast Wars type thing. That's what Beast Hunters was already a throwback to, and they specified that they made Beast Hunters be more unique because they wanted it to have its own identity and that doing something even closer to Beast Wars was the last thing they wanted to do.

How about... Battle Beasts? :lol: And I own a figure with the prototype Predacon symbol: EU 2-pack Predaking.

What if it's something entirely new and original that only happens to be another animal-related thing?

Well, technically, they aren't true Decepticons since they're both manmade bots. So, that could be the reason why.

Sgt. Bulkhound kinda looks like Leadfoot in that concept art...
Incidentally, can anybody tell what it says underneath that IDW G1 Optimus? I think it says Legends, but I'm not quite sure.

I'm not sure either, but I think it might say "Primacy", referring to the upcoming sequel to "Autocracy" and "Monstrosity".

That symbol with the red background is the prototype BH Predacon symbol that was seen on some early BH prototype/testshot figures. The other bat-like is really interesting. I immediately thought of Bat Optimus Primal and Sonar from BW and Nightscream from BM. All Maximals. So, kind of taking a bit of a leap here but, if they plan to use the prototype Predacon symbol as the new Predacon symbol for the next cartoon, maybe this bat one is the new Maximal symbol. Which would mean, Maximals vs Predacons! BEAST WARS! RAWR!

Another really interesting thing about that bat logo is that depending how you look at it, you can see different animals in it. Like the ears kinda look like lizards and the jaw looks like a bird. May be intentional, but just be a happy accident.
