Courtesy of GM's China market, we've got some brand new images from the Transformers: Age of Extinction marketing campaign. These images show clear renders of the bot's head and hand, along with shots of the full bot and some other promotional pictures. We told you about the original reveal of the Trax Transformer back in March, so it's exciting to have a few more pictures. Who do you think this Trax is? Tell us in the Energon Pub!

Okay. so I'm NOT the only one who saw the head render and though immediately of Mirage! Too bad he likely won't be in the movie. :(

Personally, I think the Trax' will be the movieverse equivalent of Vehicons. There are multiples we've seen together during filming, with Galvatron, so I'm not sure who/what else they could be.

I think this is a campaign to promote a new line of cars sponsored by the movie... >:oP

And the same user(allanmonster11) who posted the review of crosshairs today posted a review of high octane bumblebee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOQOpFM5uK8

Their prototype forms remind me of 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs'. :michaelbay:

Trax is another shameless GM marketing ploy in the TF series. Think Jolt. Probably about 10 seconds of screen time and no dialogue.

Did I nail it???

Are you thinking that there's only one of these things in the movie?

It is not like the character will have any robot screen time save some background shots. They showed Jolt in car mode quite a few times too. But only twice in robot mode. Because it was nothing more than a shameless marketing ploy. They are plugging the car, not the bot.

Yeah, I'm sure the fact that it's expensive as all hell to have these guys digitally rendered had nothing to do with having more shots of him in alt mode than bot mode.
I afraid I have issues with your use of "Shameless" in reference to the marketing. It's actually a smart business move. The cars on set are practically donated, thereby saving the studio money. That's more money going into the CGI, which got ramped up exponentially for each film which is exactly what the fans wanted and yet still you found THIS little marketing nugget to grumble about? Endorsement and product placement has only been going on for practically the entire history of cinema. And the Transformers brand in particular has been about two things: The cars and the bots so what else were you expecting to have happen here?

Of course they are not supposed to have screen time the traxes are vehicons

Jolt was added very late into filming so that's why he had little screen time

Jolt had 4 robot scenes too

Jolt was shoehorned into the movie. These are not.

Yeah, they are. They were created for one single reason. To sell cars.

Just like every other autobot in all four movies, save Prime and Ratchet. Of course, Bumblebee would have been in it even if it were a yellow jalopy due to Spielberg's stupid idea of a "boy and his car". The whole movie premise was a mickey mouse operation from the word go. Created exclusively and only to fulfill the greed of the people who conceived it.

The movies could have been real cool too. Take away Bay and his dick and fart jokes, add some seriously good writing, and choose a cast of better autobots that hang in there, rather than background fodder. Create the actual devastator, rather than apeboy the testicle bot. I could go on and on......

The ONLY good thing that came out of the movies was the transforming eye candy, and that wears thin after the first movie. And any studio could have done that.

Hopefully about ten years from now it will get a reboot and we will finally get the TF movies we deserved. And this whole abomination of a series will be a distant memory.

Dude,
1. The movies aren't that bad. They are awesome! :michaelbay:
2. Why are you criticizing on the movie fourms when you don't like the movies?
3. If u say the movies are bad, then why did dark of the moon take in as the 5th top-grossing movie of all time?

Boo Fucking Hoo Bay does not nor never will give a shit about a single individual or a small group of fans


he is making a movie for the general audience who only watch these movies as a summer popcorn flick

they don't care about what Optimus Prime did in the past or who Ratchet is they are not watching this for Shakespeare writing they are watching this for robots pulling each other apart.



and most parents don't care about crude humor anymore in fact back in grade 9 (2 years ago) when i got off my bus a bunch of kids in grade 1 gave me the middle finger and told me to suck a stick kids swear these days... a lot and don't get me started about my fellow teenagers people think i am anti social but really i am trying not to be influenced by them


as a friend of mine from tfw2005 once said


" Action is what makes these movies successful, drama does not appeal to children, giant robots fisting each other does. "

Do the movies have bad jokes: yes


do they have bad writing: yes based on opinion


but bro once again Bay does not care about you or me or any other transformer fanatic.


the perfect Transformers movie will never exist there is no perfect.
