We have our first Transformers: Age of Extinction TV toys commercial! As expected, the focus is on the simpler figures for now, showing off the play value of One-Step Optimus Prime and Flip and Change Grimlock in a live-action setting (which looks like an archaeological excavation site) mixed with CGI characters (mainly the two robots). Not as expected, this particular clip is in Polish, and hails from the MegaDyskont store channel - but still fairly understandable to non-Polish speakers, really. Check it out below!

I wonder if this will be a free promotional set like Lego give away? If not this will be the biggest impulse buy ever!

I don't care if that CGI is vastly inferior to the CGI of the movie, looking more like the level of CGI used in Super Sentai/Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, Dinozaurs, etc. That whole commercial sequence with Optimus and Grimlock with the kid is AWESOME!!!

That grimlock has to be the most re tarded transformation ever. You split the tail, and spin him like pinwheel. Seriously ? I said it before and ill say it again, we dont need dumber toys, we need smarter kids.

It's not about the smarts, it's about the fun. Lots of people back at Toy Fair (all adults) who were demonstrating and trying out that Grimlock toy's transformation were having a ball with it.

Im not debating that giving grimlock a spin might be amusing (kind of like the staples "that was easy" button) But my issue is where hasbro is going with this. For every transformer that ends up in a collectors hands, 10 more will end up in a garage sale, thrift shop, or garbage can before Michael bays 5th movie even hits theaters. Hasbro knows this. So little by little we are seeing the dumbing down of figures to save money. In other words, hasbro is done attempting to make highly prized figures that kids will cherish for years. Hasbro is catering to cheap parents who want to buy cheap junk that kids will surely outgrow.

You never know. There might be a number of kids out there who are sentimental enough to want to keep their simple toys forever.

I mean, look at me. I'm an adult who just recently bought a set of 10 Happy Meal toys from 1996 (two of which are for children under Age 3) off of eBay. :lol:

I'm not really crazy about the sheer number of and emphasis being put on simplistic toys (how many Grimlocks do we need?), but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to try some of them out.

Getting of topic, but... I'm disappointed Toy Story never did an encounter with "cheap" versions of the main characters. If you've ever tried looking for a "real" Buzz Lightyear toy (with the wings and laser and everything) you'll know there's a billion inferior versions.

I bet Grimlock toys are to this movie what Bumblebee toys were to the last three. :P

There was that one Toy Story short that had them meeting a fast food children's meal Buzz Lightyear toy, which was very simiplistic in design.

Sorry. I didnt know this was a sensitive issue on here. Lately theres been alot of cussing going on in other forums, so I thought anything short of the f word was allowed. Ill refrain from using that word here. Didnt mean to offend anyone.

I don't konw... personally, I find the spinning transformation to be rather ingenious and fun to watch.

Okay, usually I don't get involved in ideological or political arguments, but controlling one's speech and word use is a pet peeve of mine.

Please look at the context of how words are used rather than the words themselves. In the original comment, he isn't using the word to scold, dehumanize, stigmatize or discriminate anyone. If I replace the so-called "r-word" with "stupid", "inane", "vacuous" or "asinine" when making fun of someone with an intellectual disability, will that make things better? Of course not. The intent to hurt is still there.

The word is not the issue, context, intent and how the words are used is. Just like that whole Ban Bossy fiasco, banning a word will not solve anything. If the ill intent is there, there will be new words to replace it eventually and the message will still get across. We should strive to change people's attitudes and behavior, not word use.

I am not controlling, I politely asked. Rated X politely accepted.

Was this commercial dubbed? Or will there be a different commercial focusing on the AOE Generations toys?

Sigh...

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure, let's make AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAlllll the toys adult-oriented expensive collectors items. This way, no childs will ever get into Transformers and make good memories of it.
Then, when you wonder why the Transformers line is dead and cancelled because of lack of sales, don't come crying back.



no.. how bout just make items that sell.. these mashers DON'T SELL.. and i didn't need something stupid like a transformer that spun to transform to get hooked into transformers.. G1 and beast wars did that for me.

these toys are meant to grab a kids attention.. but it'll end up being the toy that the kid gets tired playing with after a week and moves onto the next franchise.. a good memory is figure something out for the first time and getting that sense of accomplishment that makes you want to try it again and again.. not something that spins and instantly changes.. like i said, that is something that'll be fun for a week but end up in a toy box or lost somewhere.

none of the toys i kept from when i was a kid did anything like this. i didn't need to push a button to have something transform automatically.

i fear how this brand will look in thirty more years if this stuff starts overtaking the deluxes, voyagers, and leaders.

i thought the fast action battlers were great for kids.. they weren't tiny like cyberverse figures, they weren't too difficult like their main line counterparts and they looked half way decent. but again, i'm sure those didn't sell well enough to continue them.

also.. as of now there has only been one thing that has been mean't to get the collector excited and that was the garbage first edition prime.. otherwise, this entire line is full of simple transformations, tons of kibble, and HORRIBLE PAINT/COLOR CHOICES. i mean, look how awful both of the leaders turned out. i doubt many collectors are going to pick those up after the initial hype. and at $45 with zero gimmicks i sure as hell don't think parents are going to be buying many for their kids.

in the previous lines the leaders have usually been the one thing that the collector is more likely to purchase.. but with the looks of the leaders for this line, i don't think it'll be the case.
