Mark your calendars! Transformer fan Donald Grayson contacted Seibertron.com to let us in on a secret: while opening his exclusive Calvin Johnson sneakers/exclusive Generations: Thrilling 30 IDW Megatron, he found a small card, one that teased of "big news" during next year's Superbowl, which will be held on 2 February. Based on previous track records, it is very possible that this is when we will see the first trailer for the much anticipated Age of Extinction film.

Almost expected, even. ;)

The planet is in peril as HEROIC AUTOBOT LEADER Optimal Primo must use the Jurassicons to stop the Destrons now led by two Megatrons: NBA Star Calvin Johnson and NFL Star Nate Burleson. Meet hard-rappin' duo Slim Blastah [Voiced by M&M] and Spinnerz [Rob Schneider]. And prepare for the madness of Galvatron [Adam Sandler]. ALSO lots of Ad placement. And a brand new combiner team.

Possibility 2.

Transpielberg :CON: 4

I'm more excited about the possibility of the first trailer for the new Godzilla flick personally :P. That's the film I'm most interested in next year.

"Much anticipated."

Anticipated, dreaded, same difference, right?

Yes, "Anticipated" is the correct choice here.

Oh, for the love of Primus. Thanks Bay, another Transformer movie that us hardcore G1 enthusiast will post negative replies about, in effort to be seen as entitled elitists with an opinion nobody cares about, then end up watching the movies anyway and secretly really enjoying them.

Sheesh. Enough already.

Somebody please stand up and realize all the positive things Michael Bay has done for the brand. All I hear is back-handed insults about the lack of G1 accurate robots. Who cares. Where were all these people when "Beast Wars" first came out? Wow, talk about culture shock because the 'bots weren't cars, planes, or other mechanical things. Never heard a peep. Want to know why? Because it's easy for 38-45 year old men that still live in their mother's basement to throw up negative comments on a message board, hiding behind total anonymity.

Let's face facts. Transformers was a dying brand until Mr. Bay resurrected them and made it cool to be an Autobot or Decepticon fan, instead of a being labeled a "nerd". The brand is king of Hasbro once again and the movies have generated so much world-wide interest that a theme park ride and cartoon (TF: Prime) were based on them. Numbers don't lie and the movies make a killing. Not to mention all the young children that will now grow up fans of the brand and since there will be ongoing desire, all of us G1 children will be able to enjoy new movies, cartoons, and figures for the rest of our lives.

Oh, and you all are welcome now that the value of the original G1 toys has sky-rocketed thanks to the movies.

It was a "dying brand" at the end of Generation 2. The Unicron Trilogy was enough of a commercial success for Hasbro as far as toy sales were concerned. The brand wasn't in any sort of danger of going under back then, regardless of the success of the films.

Yeah, a Super Bowl spot was a given, no surprise there. I was kinda hoping Bay would surprise us and maybe roll out a trailer for Christmas as a present.

Look, I LOVED the 1st movie and still do, will always defend it. Thing is, Bay has just made the first movie, 2 more times. No focus on Transformers, instead on characters with the same witt as Jar Jar. Also I HATE F'N JAR JAR!!! Mudfail and Skids not funny. For this type of humor, look up Gonzossm, Ricepirate, ETC, on YouTube, they know what they're doing at least.

Following up on our earlier story about "big news" from several days ago, Michael Bay confirmed on his website that the first Age of Extinction trailer will be aired during the 48th Superbowl on 2 February. Also, the director says that the five-and-a-half month-long filming is completed and ready for editing. This is what he had to say:

Michael Bay wrote:So that brings me to letting Transformers fans know that we have completed our five and half month shoot. We got back from a month long shoot in China. My crew and I had a fantastic time shooting in Hong Kong and Mainland China. It was an amazing experience, and I love the country. My cast was absolutely fantastic, and a very fun group to work with. We are working hard cutting the movie right now. I think the first piece comes out for the Super Bowl and a teaser right after that.

Excellent News. This now gives me a reason to watch the Super Bowl. I usually skip it, unless Transformer Movie trailers are premiering.

I'll more than likely be at work during the Superbowl, so like the last few years, I'll just catch the trailer online.

It'll probably be available online before it even airs. I think I remember remember ROTF's Superbowl ad doing that. I know DOTM's didn't, though.

Entertainment and media website Kpopstarz.com is reporting a rumour that newcomer Grimlock himself may be featured in the Super Bowl trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, set to air on February 2nd as previously reported. Is this just a rumour? Do you think it's likely that the Dinobot will show up this soon? Check out a snippet of the original article below, and discuss your thoughts in the Energon Pub!

With Transformers 4: Age of Extinction nearing its release date, and spoilers spilling everywhere, we can't wait to see the new trailer for the movie. It's expected that the Transformers 4 movie trailer to debut on Super Bowl 2014 commercials will feature the new giant robot, Dinobot leader Grimlock together with the redesigned Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

Please stop doing that.

As opposed to what? All the autobots and decpeticons sitting around a table with Dr. Phil talking about feelings? :roll: Or maybe you'd prefer a two hour movie of them protesting there exile. A nice picket line in front of Washington. Or instead of fighting they could occupy and squat in a building. Now that's the TF movie I know everyone wants to see! :BANG_HEAD:

All things aside, looking forward to the trailer. This year promises to be a good one for movie trailers. Tf's, Godzilla, Planet of the Apes, spider man 2, Robocop, Expendables 3, captain America 2. Should be cool.

Blackout didn't get 7 minutes thrashing an army base, Jesse. He spent like 3 minutes just flying there, a minute or so of actual fighting, with even less time of blackout actually being in the shot, and he pretty much did little to nothing for the rest of the movie. 7 minutes, hah. That's more like the collective screen time of all robot mode tfs in the entire first movie. So yeah, I do expect about the same this time round with grimlock.

You're still stuck on the flaws of the first movie? A flaw surrounding a character who doesn't even have that big of a name or fan base? Ok. Sure.

I've been burned by Bay and his insectoid nightmares too many times to not be skeptical. It may sound churlish, but so far every movie toy I've seen in stores has been a big letdown. They're never as flexible, poseable or as fun as they are portrayed. Indeed, most of them are kibble-laden bricks that don't yield nearly enough reward for all the effort it takes to transform them. You'd think toys that complicated would.... just LOOK better. Take Ravage for example. In the movie - lithe, flexible and agile. The toy? Stiff and brittle. All those spiky joints, and 99% of them turned out to be immovable plastic molded into solid pieces. Same with Scorponok. You wanted to be able to bend and flex them at least PARTIALLY like they could in the films without them snapping in two.

So sadly, I don't expect any degree of real articulation for the Dinobots. All these teaser images portray the figures as limber, fleet-footed and intricate. Ten to one, the forearms and the legs of each figure in alt mode will have only ONE joint and it will only bend 90 degrees. The heads probably won't move or rotate either, nor will there be any neck, back or waist articulation. And good luck if there are ANY joints on the tails.

I say bring on the Dinobots!! At least they'll be shown in the trailer, most things were kept secret in Dark of the Moon that it barely phased my interest during the commercials. Let's see some Robot-Dinos!

Let's not go assuming too much. The non-screen time movie toys had some great ones, as well as probably one of the greatest TF's (at least in regards to show accuracy/engineering), ROTF Prime. But the prime in this one is definitely crap.

I was responding to another poster's comment about Blackout, and the gross exageration of his screen time. I'm not stuck on anything simply because I choose to remember it accurately. Blackout having a big name or fanbase is subjective and doesn't matter. I could pick out flaws with a million things about all the other characters. But Blackout was brought up.

Megatron Wolf, stop insulting the fandom...

otherwise I am interested to see the trailer. I am a g1 hardcore fan, but I can appreciate the movies as an entertainment medium, and for the sake of argument I look at these movies as their own series not using or depending on g1 to exist.


and to whoever ragged on beast wars (I think megatron wolf) we loved them as their own story and the direct tie in to G1.
