Once again, Hound Meta has shared an image on The Ragin Nation Facebook page, and this time, it's an in-package promotional image of another Transformers: Age of Extinction Dino Sparker set - Bumblebee riding the two-headed, blue-coloured Dinobot Strafe. Check out the mirrored image below.

That Strafe actually looks kinda terrifying.

I'd like to see these Sparker things painted. I bet they'd make impressive display pieces with a bit of work.

*still waiting to see Dinobots that are "just right" for me, i.e. Cyberverse or Kreons (not the brick-built sets)*

At first, the trailer of the new TF4 movie looked like a disapointing copy/pasta of DotM.

Then, we see TF riding modda fawking dinobots! :BOWDOWN:

Please, PLEASE, let this awesomness be in the movie!
(And less silly humans, for crying out loud.)

Man, these Dino Sparkers have no paint. They could have least put some more paint on Strafe besides making him all light blue. In the end, they all look like a bunch of McDonald's toys. :BANG_HEAD:

All you guys complain about the chrome in the wrong places, but do you ever consider maybe the chrome in the wrong places would be scratched out when transformed. Just saying. Maybe the chrome in the "right Places" does not do well for either the robot mode or the alt mode. Maybe chrome on the chest or on the hip rubs out when you transform him. Just saying. I however, love chrome. any voyager or larger redecorated with chrome is bought on site. just saying.

Personally, one of the few reason why the First Edition AOE Optimus Prime had lots of chrome is because it's a shellformer. Imagine that same toy (with all the chrome on his chest) transformed like the Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime. The chrome would just get killed. Just saying.

Complaints about lack of paints?!?

Despite my lack of interest in owning these Sparker things, and the fact that TF history has seen a recurrence of toys with sculpted details that lack paint apps necessary to bring them out, I'm pretty sure the idea here is that the details show up when the thing's glowing from the inside, meaning any paint apps would just obscure the effect.

Surely a few dozen customizers will try to improve them, and some will succeed, just not if they miss the point before jumping in.

Seeing Bee on Strafe with that huge-ass lance, I get this weird hunch that he knows what Springer's secret escape plan was in Nightmare Planet. If one of his package bios spells it out, that's the Bee toy I will buy. Otherwise, I got enough yellow already.

Lame!

At least the Firecons and Sparkobots from G1 & G2 transformed. This doesn't appear to do anything other than pull back, release, and let it go and spark. Whoopee!

I understand that HasTak is trying to reach out to a much younger demographic and for that reason I can appreciate the Transformers Rescue Bots line and now the new One-Step Changers. But at least put a little effort into some form of articulation on the Dinobot's part as it looks like Bumblebee is at least removeable and has limited articulation.

Once again I have to point out that instead of creating new subdivisions for each Transformers toy line (that are always doomed to failed), HasTak should concentrate on just a central few. All the creative energy put into these silly subdivisions like these Dino Sparkers could've been put to better use in creating better Deluxe and Voyager figures and even Cyberverse figures. At least put it towards a subdivision with toys that actually transform.

Even if the Forge of Solus Prime hadn't been destroyed, it would take all the power it ever had to turn these things into proper transforming toys. I'd rather whack some 3rd party stuff with it and see if they turned official, turn my original Blackarachnia toy show-accurate, hit my flaked Transmetals until their chrome was repaired, fix all those cracked rubber tires and treads...

Well, I'd like that magic hammer. Especially for my poor, poor MIB Beast Machines Ultra Jetstorm. When I pulled it out of the packaging and transformed him, I was covered in metallic flakes! Still, it could be worst. Like GPS. RIP SW Xover Millenium Falcon's Chewbaca.

Just a reminder to help you on May 17th, when the toyline is officially released. (And when some stores break that release date.) Back on January 9th, we posted an article which contained Target's DPCI numbers for the upcoming Transformers Age Of Extinction toy line.

This list also confirms the higher price points we had heard about earlier this year at Toy Fair back in February. However, some items seem to be priced lower than expected, such as some of the smaller Constructbots offerings.

As a courtesy, we are reposting this information now that the release of these toys is getting closer. The street date for the Age of Extinction toy line is May 17th, but several stores have already put the Age of Extinction toys on shelves in limited locations.

087-06-2583 TRANSFORMERS 4 CNSTRCTBOTS WAR $19.99

i was considering picking up scorn but at $15 im going to pass. ill just do what i did with DOTM, wait 2 weeks and pick em up when they drop to $10 cause they arent selling. But it sickens me that they keep making these toys crappier but keep charging the same high prices, if your going to remove paint and complexity then drop the damn price.

Actually, they drop the paint and complexity so they can keep the price the same.

Is the Sonic Rally car a Transformer? Maybe one of those unknown deluxe figures is the rally car. I wonder when the Leader Class Evasion Prime is being released? Also, I hope that unknown Dinobot Voyager is Strafe. I also hope they at least come out with Voyagers of all of the other Dinobots.

I was kinda hoping for some TFP/BH Legion repaints (complete the WTF-coloured Bruticus redecos at least? Rot Gut needs friends!) and they could probably re-use the last movie's toys of the main characters.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. After all with the exception of that Bumblebee repaint most of the unlreased figures from DOTM are finding some releases in Takara's Advanced line so it's lkely that the Wheeljack retool is among them.

I'm hoping that one of the two slots will include the Trax Rally fighter.

The Hasbro Australia Transformers website has been updated with many new official images from various upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction lines. These include the wave 1 Voyagers and Deluxes, Construct-Bots Sets, Kre-O Sets, Custom Kreons, and 12 inch non-transforming figures. We mirrored the images below for easy browsing.

Speaking of the Wave 1 Voyagers, we have full comprehensive galleries of each at the following links:

Hasbro Australia has updated their online product catalog with a couple of new official images of the Leader Class Transformers: Age of Extinction Grimlock figure. What's interesting about these images is they differ from the official images that we given earlier this year at Toy Fair. As you can see in the new images mirrored below Grimlock now has chrome on his chest, legs, and dino head. We've included the original official images below for comparison. Check 'em out below:

Scorn is pretty awesome. His dino mode with the head that tilts from side-to-side is really cool. You can get some really nice poses out of his dino mode. His robot mode is pretty cool as well, despite having a very simplistic head and a tail arm.

Scorn's gallery will be up later tonight or tomorrow.

Posted by welcometothedarksyde on April 13th, 2014 @ 2:59pm CDT
For all of his issues, Voyager Grimlock is pretty nice and scales well with the deluxe dinobots. Leader Grimlock IMO looks bad in both modes. I thought that his scale would allow for recreating Optimus riding Grimlock from the trailer. But I think I'll probably buy into the Construct-bots for that. All in all, from what I'm seeing Leader Grim looks like he'll be the Movie 1 Megatron from this trilogy. He looks like he'll be top heavy as well.
Anyway, it's too early to call it, but this one is probably a pass. I quite like the Voyager so I'll try that. I really hope this movie is good :D
