Ariiel Zanabria posted the first in package image of Deluxe Class Slash in package, over at The Ragin Nation Facebook page's stream.

And that's not all! Hound Meta also posted an in package image of Voyager Class Hound on the same Facebook stream.

This is the first time we've seen both figures in detail since Toy Fair back in February. If the release pattern in the past holds true for AoE, we should see waves 1 and 2 see release at the same time on May 17th, but it is not guaranteed. Both Hound and Slash are wave 2 items.

We've mirrored both images here for easy viewing.

Tiny pics and dull package design... though the art itself is pretty neat.
From what I can tell, Hound looks like a shell-former and Slash looks terribly mistransformed.


It amuses me that an alien robot Raptor has "feathers", especially when the people working on Jurassic Park 4 claimed their 'real' Raptors wouldn't have any.

Since when does bay care about realism? He only does stuff cause he thinks it looks cool even if its completely ludicrous. Just look at how the bots look & transforms, all you have to do to stop a bayformer is throw a metal pipe at him half way through transforming.

...I'm still hung up on why people care that a roboticALIEN raptor has feathers when the real ones likely did not...

Small pics, but that looks like an awful lot of extra box above and below BulkHound. Probably just a standardized size for larger voyager figures (Dinobots wih big wingspans for example) but I noticed it. Want more pictures, I will probably get them both, but what I'll do with them I don't know.

Hound Meta over at The Ragin Nation is at it again! Today he's posted two new images for our viewing. First up? Voyager Class Galvatron! Again, this is the first time seeing him since Toy Fair back in February, and it just makes it even more difficult to wait until May 17th for these figures. (C'mon May!)

The other picture is of Hound and all of his accessories out of package. Dude's packin' serious firepower and looks like he's going to be a one man army!

Hound seems a bit Bulkheady in the way he looks. Slash I think looks brilliant, and I'm having a hard time seeing how Galvatron transforms. Probably has an entire shell for his back or something.

There. Dem photos been blown up n' stuff.

Had to use the built in Windows magnifier to make 'em bigger (no photo editing software on the PC I'm using at the moment.)

But, it's not going to get much better than this until we receive better images. Still, this is good stuff, folks.

Galvatron looks brilliant. It's a shame it's the only AoE toy I want.

Also, is it just me, or does Hound's toy look a lot like FoC Onslaught?

Wonder what it feels like to be sitting in the Hasbro HQ and have to deal with the realization that the Bandai Power Rangers toys can kick the crap out of these Transformer products? That must really suck.
Yeah, I get the fact that they are simplified for the little kids, shoot I'm one of the first people to jump on folks' cases about ragging on kids toys but COME ON HASBRO!! They could have made them simpler without making them look like total junk. Even the Rescue Heroes toys look more appealing than these things. I can chew up cardboard and sh** a paper-former with more character, appeal and articulation than these things.

I'll wait till we get in hand images. My concern is that the AOE First edition Optimus was/is the 'showcase' for this line and I was far from impressed with him.

Is that a Decepticon logo next to Galvatron´s name? I was hoping that if he´s created by humans and he´s a Vehicon, he and the rest would get a new faction symbol, maybe it doesn´t matter but I would prefer that.

Another day, another reveal! Ariiel Zanabria is at it again, with a new set of official images, over at The Ragin Nation Facebook page. This time? The Stinger. This is part of the 1 Step line for smaller kids, with the simplified transformations. (Think Gravity Bots, but much cooler looking.)

We've mirrored the images below and clicking on each one will take you to The Ragin Nation Facebook page.

In before fanrage - If you're looking at this figure and expecting Generations quality, you're looking in the wrong place. This toy is obviously not for you, nor is it doing anything wrong by existing. All three previous movie lines had merchandise like this, so we should all be used to it by now. It is fruitless to get mad over something that you won't be collecting, so kindly let those who are interested in this stuff have their fun, thank you. :)

Any idea as to how large Stinger is (and these one-step guys in general)? Aesthetically, he looks like he could fit in with Cyberverse, which I assume is dead and gone at this point.

Based on the videos and images from Toy Fair, I'd guess no smaller than a Deluxe. Maybe a small Voyager size.

There are variable sizes within the 1 Step line. So we'll see Deluxe, Voyager and Supreme sizes. Grimlock is in the Supreme Class size.

The people who worked on Jurassic Park also called the raptors Velociraptors, when in reality Velociraptors were a foot and a half tall and actually did have feathers.

i liked armageddon, the rock & both bad boys movies so youre wrong on that account. Yes i hate bayformers with a passion and always will cause its made a mockery of the franchise & its the starting point of all the problems we've had over the years, but i have no problem with his directing style nor have i ever stated that. Im just tired of him throwing stupid shit in the movies just because it looks cool. If your going to give me an alien robot make it believable not just flashy & gimmicky.

I hope Stinger there gets a 'proper' deluxe figure. I really like his design.

And Galvatron... um... wow, up close it's clear how cheap they're getting with the plastic. Guess I won't know whether to buy him or not until I have him in hand.

Posted by Ravage XK on March 31st, 2014 @ 4:06am CDT
Oh dear.

The only figure from the AOE line I have seen so far that takes my interest is the G1 looking Prime. These two look pretty kiddy friendly which is the point of the toys so I cant complain.

I will be sticking to Generations and Masterpiece figures.

Seibertron.com staff member Autobot032 and user GuyIncognito have both spotted some newsworthy images across the internet of some of the new Transformers: Age of Extinction toys - namely the Deluxe wave 1 and the two Voyagers Evasion Mode Optimus Prime and Grimlock. We sourced the images back to posts by other Transformers fans DocBot89 and ChErikS over at fellow fansite TFW2005. Check out the images of the new toys, including Dinobots Slug and Scorn, Autobots Crosshairs and Bumblebee, and Voyagers Evasion Mode Optimus Prime and Grimlock below!

One figure... I had enthusiasm and hope for ONE FIGURE out of the entire AoE line and 98% of that just went right down the toilet after seeing the pics of Prime. I can forgive or at least turn a blind eye to a great many of Hasbro's failings over the years but not this. This is the toy tribute equivalent of pissing on someones grave. The ONE THING that Bay did absolutely right out of the entire franchise, the one ounce of respect he showed to the first generation of Transformer fans and Hasbro goes and f***s it up!

Thank goodness the only other figure I have any interest in isn't going to see the light of day in robot mode if I pick it up. Sadly though, I'll probably have to pass on that too. If Hasbro can find a way to screw up a voyager class Prime in BOTH modes then the Deluxe Class '67 Camaro Bumblebee has about a snowballs chance in hell of coming out decent looking in vehicle mode.

Two observations:

(1) AOE Grimlock's head sculpt is *this close* to being TMNT Shredder.

(2) Evasion Optimus looks a lot like Kre-O Optimus.
Re: Official AoE Voyager Class Hound And Deluxe Class Slash In Package Images (1561541)
Posted by #Sideways# on March 31st, 2014 @ 10:48am CDT
That Prime. That Prime, though. That will be mine, if not so I can at the very least have a flat-nosed Optimus aside from the Classics mold. Aside from the "colored plastic > paint" rut that Hasbro seems to be falling into, I think I can do something to make him look a bit cooler with some extra paint.

But that Grimlock should have stayed extinct, in my opinion. "Voyager" seems a lot like "Deluxe" right now, though that is probably to keep in in scale with this Optimus for unknown reasons. Being around the same size as G1 Grim is rather unacceptable from a Voyager, in my opinion.

AOE Voyager Grimlock's alt-mode makes FOC Grimlock's alt-mode look like a marvel of modern engineering.
