Courtesy of news site USA Today, we get a look at some official pictures of upcoming Age of Extinction toys, from Deluxe to Leader class. The line, also confusingly named Robots in Disguise, includes Grimlock, Optimus, Bumblebee, Drift, Lockdown, Hound, Crosshairs, finally named Stinger and Slash! Check out the images below and remember - this line is intended for quick, easy transformations for a younger audience, as pointed out in the presentation earlier.

Coming later this year, the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line from Hasbro is built with the younger set (ages 5-and-up) in mind and features a variety of characters from director Michael Bay's upcoming fourth Transformers film, in theaters June 27. Many of the toys will be on display Sunday through Wednesday in New York City as part of Toy Fair 2014.

Eighteen Autobot, Decepticon and Dinobot personalities roll out in the One-Step Changers assortment ($9.99 each, available in May). Youngsters can convert heroic Autobots such as their leader Optimus, loyal soldier Hound, the new Dinobot named Slash and former Decepticon tactician Drift — as well as bad guys like ace Decepticon bounty hunter Lockdown — from robot to secondary vehicle or dinosaur form in one move.

Fans of Optimus' trusted Autobot confidante Bumblebee get a treat with his Mega One-Step figure ($29.99, August). Not only can he switch from robot to sports car quickly, but he also comes with a disc launcher. Just avoid shooting the family dog with flying discs, kids.

Children of the 1980s grew up loving Grimlock, and the ancient warrior returns for a new generation with Chomp and Stomp Grimlock ($79.99, August). The Dinobot boasts a chomping jaw and light-up in eyes in beast mode, and has an easy transformation to sword-swinging robot, too. Grimlock also interacts with his fellow toys — he comes with a nonconverting Optimus so kids can relive the extremely nerdy moment from the trailer where the Autobot rides Grimlock into battle, plus unlock sounds and pop-out weapons. Plus, he can be used with other One-Step Changer figures and has different lights and sounds whether you pair him with an Autobot or Decepticon.

Wow, those are hot garbage. Really hope this is some sort of subline :/

Edit: Didn't see the blurb at the top. Ok, no problems. These are activators, essentially. Grimlock is also kind of neat.

Lets hope some of the Age Of extinction toys will be for collectors. I am all for easy stuff for the kids but that is all I am seeing these days.

Where did they get those pictures to represent the age groups? They're pretty hilarious if you ask me ;)
Alright, these are gonna be the Age of Extinction toys that are gonna be on the shelves. No one complain, I think we were all expecting about this much. Just hope that the stores don't over order them and leave the shelves clogged for the years to come.

Something tells me they already did. The thing about the main retailers, targert walmart, toysrus, when a movie year rolls around, they always order to much movie product, and that odd transitional wave, like the Hunt for the decipticons/2010 line, gets shoved aside into obscurity.

No way in hell Windblade is going to exist as a toy and not get retooled into Slipstream. There's just no way.

So I gues this confirms Jetfire. And in turn, I am now a believer of The Master List. Which means a Leader Megatron will be making his debut this weekend. :grin:

I don't necessarily like what I'm seeing of the toys themselves, but some of those designs are pretty cool.

So is that the image of the Chomp and/or Stomp Grimlock? Cuzzzzzz it looks kinda hollowish the the price they are asking.

Wow, the main line looks even worse than I had imagined. It makes me kinda sad, cos some of those designs look like they would make for decent toys if actually executed with care.

True dat, but it mostly makes me glad that Beast Wars came about in the wake of Jurassic Park's misconceptions. Better yet, this fellow will still look like someone other than Dinobot even if we get a toy where his arms aren't permanently akimbo.

Oh yeah, and Splish or Splash and Grimlock are the only ones here that look kinda cool; everyone else looks like the result of the oil industry's practices making Hasbro s#!t bricks about the future of plastic prices.

Yeah, pretty sure all of these are the toys mentioned in the slideshow today. The Stomp and Chomp and Mega Bumblebee seem to fit the description and sounds, plus all the news we've had about them so far.

Well, umm... not what I expected. The package art for Drift is kickass. That's really the only thing positive I can confidently say about these guys.

Grimlock has the doofiest robot mode I have ever seen. Like, probably doofiest than Victory Road Caesar.

We were told that the collector's side of the Transformers shenanigans would be receiving more complex, accurate, appealing figures for Age of Extinction, right?

...Right? :-s

It's one of those One-Step Transformers; you stand it up or slam it on the table or something, and it instantly converts.

If this had been the kinda deal on shelves when I was 4-10...I'd have a lot more Gobots.

I am very underwhelmed by these. Especially Grimlock so far..

I love how Hasbro has AOE under the 4-10 age group yet those movies are not appropriate for 4-10 year olds.
