With all the recent trailers, the focus has shifted onto the robotic cast of Transformers: Age of Extinction - but fear not, Paramount Pictures have made available a further look to that human element which both Nicola Peltz and Mark Wahlberg have talked about to the press. Check them out below, starting with some official images from Peltz and Jack Reynor's signing tour and their stop in Chicago, then moving on to actual movie stills, featuring Stanley Tucci, Li Bingbing, Wahlberg, Peltz, Reynor, and not-really-human Optimus Prime and fire-breathing Grimlock!

DISCLAIMER: The discussion thread below may contain (highly speculative) spoilers from the previously reported 'Built' trailer. Enter at your own peril.

I also thought of that, but it makes sense that he would be saying it to Prime. If he was saying it to Galvatron, that means at some point Galvatron becomes sentient and of his own will, instead of being controlled by humans.


That's actually the running theory some people have concerning Galvatron, from what I've read. I agree,it fits with the Prime scene though. But you never know with trailers.

Honestly, I like the idea of Lockdown's revelation mirroring what Galvatron and the Trax's may come to understand if they do gain sentience. Maybe 'real' cybertronians and human built ones are not as different as they may initially think. We all like a good rage against our creators in a search for our worth, after all :D

Whatever he means, that line certainly indicates this one could have a pretty decent plot. If nothing else it gives Lockdown a lot of character in this trailer.

Didn't you watch the movie? All the other Primes died except for The Fallen because they sealed The Fallen away and they sacrificed themselves to hide the Matrix in their tomb.


They didn't seal The Fallen, only the Matrix, so The Fallen wouldn't find it, IIRC.

Someone did. Dude was trapped in his sarcophagus for centuries.

Why would they ruin the point of Bumblebee having a new rival by having a bunch of them?

and besides there is the actual product right there in robot mode standing besides a Regular god damn Pagani which is the product by the way a transformer that turns into a pagani its like saying that irl that a transformer in robot mode is not the same product as a second figure in alt mode.

Stop over analyzing shit and stop saying that bullcrap as fact.

Where are the Trax they are selling, which is so clearly obvious? why is Stinger on the prototype visuals on the walls? I think you're the kettle calling the pot black, my friend.

____________________________________________________

Drawing a line under that, I want to raise a new point to you guys;

With this new TV spot potentially suggesting that [spoiler]someone (the Quintessons?) is behind Lockdown's appearance and indeed created the Transformers[/spoiler], I want to discuss this image,



1) http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transform ... -spot.html As discussed in this thread, there is a dinosaur (like an actual non-robot dinosaur) visible moving in the shot. Bare in mind that from what various media outlets have reported, the Dinobots are supposedly in stasis on Lockdown's ship and OP breaks them out when he escapes - which means that they aren't necessarily from Earth pre-TF4.

2) Despite the above, I'm trying to predict where this scene fits within the overall film/plot.

Either it could be Lockdown trying to bomb Optimus and the Autobots out of the Chinese countryside (with bombs that leave some weird spiky residue).

OR even more crazy, could it be the creation of Cybertron? That's pretty "out there" but I wanted to throw it forward. If Bay is implementing a storyline such as that suggested by the Built TV spot, it wouldn't be too extreme to imagine him showing us Cybertron originally as a world like ours that was somehow terraformed to be mechanical.

I'm not saying I buy that myself, just putting it out there for consideration. What do you guys think? There's a lot of food for thought in this. A moving Dinosaur in the scene suggests that it isn't modern day Earth...

Thats the first trailer to get me worried about this film.

cant stand the quints.

TBH after all the effort hasbro has gone to get the TFs origin to at least make some kind of sense im somewhat taken aback at em going this route in the film

IF indeed it is the quints. but seeing as bay cant help screwing with things its looking like thats the way its going)

The Quintesson's are known for telling lies. They could say that they built the Transformers even if Primus created them. Isn't that idea in fiction somewhere? I doubt they created the All Spark. They could have also kidnapped Transformers and upgraded them.
Re: Transformers: Age of Extinction Additional Promotional Stills and Tour Images - Human Cast (1583165)
Posted by TurboMMaster on June 17th, 2014 @ 2:57pm CDT
Or maybe, Cybertron was originally a Q colony, and Allspark was created by Primus, witch decided to bring life into Quintesson's machines? Transformers could have a complex origin, with both mystical and mysterious origin.

Where could I see those spent efforts? Sorry if it sounds sarcastic, I am just really curious as to where a fan like me can see the current origin. Or is wiki still my best friend in that department?

Was this in 1 of the movie comics? I don't remember it being mentioned in RoTF.

Yeah, I think it was in "Defiance". ROTF itself messed up the intended state of The Fallen to be still trapped in his sarcophagus in the movie until after Megatron killed Optimus, which would have freed The Fallen. But the film made its usual 11th hour changes and made The Fallen just be sitting freely inside the Nemesis without any imprisonment.

It took John Barber to fix this with his "Convergence" stories, in which one of them explained that Soundwave went and fetched a bunch of Sentinel Prime's pillars from the Moon and gave one to The Fallen to use to break himself out of his sarcophagus prior to the ROTF movie so as to mend the continuity error the film created with its pre-movie media.

So much speculation when it might not even be the quints. "They" could be anyone, unless I missed something that actually said it was the Quints. Either way, it'll suck since the last 3 did story wise and in many other ways. But hey, give your money to Hasbro and let them make cool new figures for me. :P
Primus origin story is the best, but its the bayverse where the fallen is suddenly a boring regular robot who can get beaten in a fist fight instead of being the higher being disciple of Unicron. It's almost like having the silver surfer being punched out by the thing. Boooorrinngg. and surely more boring crap in TF4.

That's an excellent idea, maybe not my favorite one, but it makes sense. We've already had an organic Cybertron too, so it's less of a stretch than it seems, as a major plot point from the entire Beast Machines series is a thing I'd see them using. It definitely looks like terraforming is going on in that scene.
If it isn't, who knows? Maybe whoever are in those ships came to Earth specifically to make a new Cybertron? Considering the last movie, Cybertron is probably half destroyed, as the half that came through the bridge appeared to be. The Dino makes that iffy, though, unless it actually is a Dinobot.

Because i was there during filming there was only one Pagani filmed (yes they had backups but thats it) only one unless the others are pure Cgi.


Stinger is like an elite Vehicon leading other Vehicons along with Galvatron (not saying this is fact but Stinger is unique)

Cybertron was originally organic in the marvel comics origin too (possibly the basis for Beast Machines) Primus used his psychic powers to shape his asteroid (re: organic) prison into a metal planet. Via retcon, Cybertron was also originally organic in the G1 cartoon, at least in Japanese continuity, which sees Primus flee Primacron's base and settle within an organic planet at the center of the universe, which in time becomes cybertron (maybe thanks to the Quints using the key to vector sigma?)Interestingly, that planet is the one seen in 'Call of the primitives' :KREMZEEK:
