Transformers News: New Video from Transformers: Age of Extinction Set, Pagani Huayra Character Revealed


While fans eagerly await the return of Transformers to the big screen with Age of Extinction, ET takes you to the set of the series' action-packed fourth installment.

Director Michael Bay and his revamped cast took to the streets of Detroit, dressed up to look like Hong Kong, to film a portion of the film, which is where ET's Rocsi Diaz got a special behind-the-scenes look at the explosive action film.

The new cast for the fourth installment of the live-action series, based on the Transformers toy line, includes some familiar Hollywood faces, including Mark Wahlberg as the protagonist (Cade) and Kelsey Grammer (Harold) as the main villain.

As you can see in the featured video, Bay wasn't stingy on the explosives in the Age of Extinction, as cars are being sent airborne like feathers on set.

"It's a lot of explosions all day long, a lot of loud noises, a lot of running," Jack Reynor (Shane) said of a typical day on set.

Watch the video to satiate your Transformers appetite, and check out Transformers: Age of Extinction when it bursts into theaters June 27, 2014.

Are you sure that's not just a placeholder name? I highly doubt that Bay would actually name him that.

A brand new character with a brand new name in a brand new form and a brand new identity? BLASPHEMY! TF4 should be crucified for ever daring to even consider doing something unique and original instead of recycling old existing names like we always get. :roll:

GROW UP, people! >:oP

I'm willing to bet you that if Stinger was a character/name from back in the day, fans across multiple boards wouldn't mess themselves in outrage as much.

Oh, wait! Stinger was supposed to be the name of one of Blaster's cassettes in the 1986 Movie!

Then fans would rage that he wasn't a cassette. Nevermind...

Seriously though, what's so mind-numbingly awful about the name 'Stinger' around these parts (especially when have names like Ratchet and Blaster in this franchise)? :???:

Was referring to the posts above yours knocking on this guy having his own name instead of being "Recycled character name #9847".

Thank you!

Honestly, no one gave two cents about the names of Scalpel, Brains, Igor, Crowbar, or Hatchet, yet somehow the name "Stinger" is the one that gets persecuted? [-(

I just hope it's a Decepticon. Maybe a double agent Decepticon.

According to those toy listings we saw before, it is a Decepticon.

Meh. It's no worse than "Dino" or "Que". I guess every TF movie needs one "WTF" character.

And before we go blaming Michael Bay... do we even know if it was his idea to have Stinger as a character? How do we know it wasn't Hasbro who said to Bay "We'd like to introduce Stinger as a new character to our toy line, so we'd like you to make him a character in the movie"?

We can still go on an crusade about those names. Maybe a nice internet petition?

yeah.. remember when batman battled butterman in the dark knight rises? or hey.. remember the evil architect, the super villain from the avengers movie.. or hey.. what about plasma tv guy the new hero of the x men.. or that time spiderman got his ass beat by curdled milk man.. but my favorite character HAS to be plastic bottleman, iron mans new trusty sidekick for iron man 4.

other franchises are able to keep their classic characters in major movies.. why does this franchise have to be different?

you have to be really naive to think people won't be annoyed with new characters when there are TONS of classic iconic characters to choose from.. especially when the alt mode is a car.

i am one of few who have enjoyed the movies for what they are.. they've changed designs, they've changed personalities, and they've changed colors.. i, at the very least, would like them to use some of the classic iconic names from the franchise..

black ironhide, silver sideswipe, green ratchet, muscle car bumblebee, tattooed starscream, mercedes soundwave.. i think the least they could do is give us names that we know. it's really not that difficult to do. they've shown us that they can change things to characters that we know.. but i'd still prefer them to be characters that we know, whether their colors or personalities are different or not.. i'd like a recognizable name.

Biggest hole in your argument: All of those films are adaptations of existing comic series. The Transformers movies are wholly original and new creations in their own right, with only a handful of callbacks to previous works.

TimothyR wrote:other franchises are able to keep their classic characters in major movies.. why does this franchise have to be different?
Maybe cuz the characters in these films aren't the classic characters of Transformers? They're ALL new guys with some who are based on old ones without being those old ones. Movie Ironhide isn't the old Texan warhorse veteran G1 Ironhde is, he's a cannon-toting maniac with a bit of a psychotic side. Movie Ratchet isn't a crusty, slightly angsty medic whose uncertain of his warrior skills and like to party, he's just a plain non-special medic. Though others like Jazz and Optimus are more similar to the originals, they're still a far cry from being those same characters that they're based on.

Do you honestly expect them to not recycle more classic names for this film's cast? We've already got Optimus, Bumblebee, Hound, and Grimlock confirmed for the roster. What legitimate harm does a couple of new names thrown in among the recycled ones do?

And it's not like this Stinger guy's gonna be taking away any major role from anybody since he's a Decepticon, and these films ALWAYS reduce the non-big name Cons to personality-less savages anyway.

If the classic personality is gone and replace by a new completely different one, can they really be called the same character anymore?

Stinger was Sideswipe's production name in RotF, so this is kind of like Star Wars VII being revealed as Blue Harvest...

That's one ugly car. I'm sure it goes well enough and goes fast but it certainly isn't easy on the eyes.
Stinger is a good name. I wonder if he'll have a speaking part or just be cannon fodder.

New character, sweet car, nothing wrong here. Least they didn't do something stupid like make him Blurr, coz then the colours would be all wrong.

I actually reported this last night when the show came on... Huh. Guess they reported it before I did?

*shrugamigation*

But yeah. Stinger is actually a pretty cool name for this vehicle, and speaking of, this car is actually a pretty sweet car. I gotta actually side with Bay on this one; if there is fan-rage about this, people need to get over it. The character was never implemented in the movie and therefore does not have a canonical place in the universe.

What was the purpose of the little black box in the article censoring what I assume is the name "Stinger" ? I only know that because all the first posters mention it on their posts. Isnt this suppossed to be a news site ? I can understand not posting Botcon leaks, but Michael Bay leaks ??? Thats going to far....

BREAKING NEWS: The name of the red and black sports car is STINGER !!!

While I would have preferred to see a proper homage to a character that resembles the original version of a character, I don't have an issue with setting the precedent of a new character either. Blackout and Barricade are two of my favorite Transformers to come out of the past decade alongside Bulkhead, Lockdown, Dreadwing, and Knock Out ... all brand new characters that I have really enjoyed having as part of the Transformers cast. As long as I get a toy out of "Stinger" unlike we did with Mirage/Dino from TF3, I'll be a happy Transformers fansite owner. :D
