Courtesy of the forums over at 78.dm website, we get a look at three toys from the upcoming movie line. The figures, an armored truck called Duke (probably Hound), a two-headed creature called Paulie (probably Swoop, Strafe or Pteradon) and a Bumblebee called Bumblebee, seem to be Legends or Legion or Scout class, though they could also be very simplified Deluxes. Check out the images below!

"Paulie" looks awesome! I kinda want a BH Predacon repaint, to go along with Cyberverse Predaking and the Terrorcons (assuming this is a Cyberverse toy, or the character also gets a Cyberverse toy), but I also kinda want a different Predacon repaint:

Bumblebee looks like every other Bumblebee (and reeeeeeeeeally simple), and "Duke" almost looks human. How does he transform? Turn inside out?




I really hope these are Cyberverse, and not Deluxes...

They look more like Fast Action Battlers than Legends or Deluxes.

That third image is obviously Hound. But how come he, along with Two-Head, are labeled Duke and Paulie? :???:

I remember saying that about DotM Voyager Optimus Prime.

To combat leaks, I assume. DotM concept art labeled Megatron as "Cyclonus" for that reason.

I am getting very curious about the designs in this movie. Obviously these are simplitic versions of what is yet to come... But I feel this is promising. Especially 'Hound' looks cool. So- Uhm... MORE!

Apparently, Two-Head/Paulie's actual name is "Strafe", or at least that's what TFW2005's saying.

I think what he's trying to say is that if boxy vehicles aren't realistic enough, then why make robots with facial hair (ex: Jetfire and Sentinel Prime).

Because they can have facial hair. Vehicle parts (or fiber optics, or whatever) coming together to form something that resembles facial hair is a lot more realistic than cars that transform into a series of boxes.

Uh.. Wat?

Because they can? Yeah that's a relevant answer.

I'm not going to debate what's more "realistic" about Alien
Robot transformers in fiction.

To me it doesn't look like facial hair as much as how early Pretenders' chest armor would come up and obscure part of their face. Landmine would've been a more appropriate fake name for this guy than Duke.

These don't look like small figures, I think this is Hasbro's solution to the complexity problems. I honestly don't think that Transformers were too complex, hell I was probably 11 when I first started buying ROTF toys, I hardly had any problems. What I think was happening is that parents were buying their 5 year olds ROTF Leader Prime. So either Hasbro should start emphasizing that those toys aren't for young kids, or make simpler toys. Clearly they made that decision, and I can't say I disagree. Kids my age and younger are increasingly not into toys. That only leaves the under 10 group. I have a question, the complexity during late Beast Wars was easily comparable to more recent TFs, did anyone hear complaints? I think that only because of the smartphone era hasbro, that is simply having to market these complex toys to increasingly younger demographics. So could that mean a disappearance of complex toys? I honestly think that with a shrinking window of Transformers buyers collectors are becoming more significant. although it is obviously the 30th anniversary, it is still relevant to point out that those toys aren't marketed to kids, they're for us. So If I can make a prediction I say that we'll continue to see that kind of stuff marketed towards us alongside the normal stuff (With the exception of during movies).

However something still leaves me frustrated, the movies try to create extremely complex designs despite the need to make simple toys. The bastard results are often disappointing. I say that the need for simplicity should inform the design process. What we have seems lazy and poorly thought out.

As for the future of simplicity, does anyone else think that they should be doing something closer to Fansproject's Retro Future theme? Modern engineering, interesting gimmicks, however simple in it's execution. If they're trying to replicate G1, why aren't they looking at those toys and simply trying to improve those concepts with modern knowledge. What they're doing is just taking ridiculously complex designs and trying to reduce them to a 5 year old's comprehension. It just doesn't work well. Any ideas?

I hope those are not deluxes. The Leader Optimus Prime doesn't look like a million dollars, but it somehow reminds me of the first movie leader Optimus Prime because of how simplistic it looks. I am still debating on it, but I don't plan on getting the full like this time around.

And therein lies the problem.

With the first movie, you can see that the designers actually made an effort to ensure that the TF's at least looked as if they really do transform into vehicles. Those red boxlike things below OP's chest actually do exist on a Peterbilt truck if you remove the hood.

And during the TF1 and ROTF era, Hasbro was also able/willing to accommodate the complex designs by upping the complexity, especially in the case of ROTF. For the reasons you mentioned (catering to an increasingly younger market) they did a 180 starting from DOTM and made the toys increasingly simpler.

The problem is, the movie designers kept increasing the complexity, regardless. If you noticed in DOTM, Megatron and the Dreads (all of whom actually have Earth modes) hardly had any car parts on them, besides tires.

NOTE: I have absolutely no problem with the AOE designs as CGI models in a movie, but those designs are probably not going to translate well into screen-accurate toys.

Hopefully, though, we'll be pleasantly surprised when the actual toys are finally released. Just not holding my breath is all.

Based on the listings we got before, "Paulie" is Strafe and "Duke" is Hound.

Codename -> Real name
Thunderlips = Slug
Southpaw = Scorn
Ivan = Grimlock
Max = Lockdown
Bruce = Drift
Paulie = Strafe
Rocky = Slash
Duke = Hound
Adrian = Galvatron

Strafe makes sense in a way since G1 Strafe was a twin-headed jet and this is essentially the dinobot equivalent of such. ;)

About the hair on the robots faces, I don`t complain because in G1 we had Wreck-Gar with mustache and Alphatryon with beard and mustache, So why complaining about Bay`s robots hairs?

And about the complexity of the toys , I particularly love complex toys for how difficult to transfo4m more interesting so then, if AOE be an ease collection, I wont be expending my money on it. :CON:

There's a big difference between painted on stache's and actual grown robot metal hairs.
It's absurd. Just like making lead foot fat. It's just a way of using Stereotyping that's not needed
If someone actually wrote a good story.

But neither Scourge nor Wreck-Gar nor any of the other G1 bots with facial hair had theirs merely painted on, their beards and 'staches were separate metal plates. Alpha Trion's even grew longer and whiter with age.
Re: Transformers: Age of Extinction Power Attackers Figures Revealed (1532687)
Posted by MR Optimus Prime on November 30th, 2013 @ 11:39pm CST
In 1984, Alpha Trion's and Wreck Gar's hair were three pieces and sort of complimented them. Those were cartoons for kids, not a multi-billion movie series. It was still silly to have hair on them back then. This does not translate well onto these movie figures, it is plain ridiculous. One more way to poke fun at them and make them look hidious from this team.

These look like Deluxe size to me, based on the thickness and size of the parts.

These are either the new Deluxe Class or the return of the FABs: The Fast Action Battlers.

They kinda look OK, both "Hound" and "Strafe" look like they could be decent figures if given better treatment.

Sabrblade wrote:Strafe makes sense in a way since G1 Strafe was a twin-headed jet and this is essentially the dinobot equivalent of such. ;)

Which is just dumb, why bother making five Dinobots, and then replacing the flying one with a two-headed dragon thing as a homage to a jet based character?
What, is a one headed Pterosaur too unbelievable for audiences to accept?

I think we're getting much more than five Dinobots this time around.

Based on the previous toy listings, it sounds to me like the Dinobots will consist this time of Grimlock, Slug, Slash, Scorn, Strafe, Snarl, Swoop, and perhaps even more. ;)
Re: Transformers: Age of Extinction Power Attackers Figures Revealed (1532713)
Posted by Oddimus Prime on December 1st, 2013 @ 5:38am CST
I'm willing to bet that these are the replacement for FAB. The transformations look as if they could be almost automated (pop outification). Hound seems to have his sides flip outwards, which gives the inside out look. Bee has the weird feet fascia thing going on. Not sure about Strafe, doesn't seem too "springy" to me, but I still reckon that's what these are.

However the fact that these are named "Power Attackers" implies that they are something other than Deluxe or Cyberverse.
Re: Transformers: Age of Extinction Power Attackers Figures Revealed (1532790)
Posted by Cyborgraptor on December 1st, 2013 @ 2:47pm CST
I believe that the "Power Attackers" are going to be the new Cyberverse. These toys look too simple for Deluxe models and even FAB. Bumblebee looks like all his other legends/legion class incarnations; Hound looks to have the similar build too Commander class Sentinel Prime, and Strafe reminds me of the recent Predacon Windrazor legion class only maybe bigger, possibly Commander Class.

Well that sucks. This confirms that Hound will have that stupid Grizzly Adams beard and a Cigar in the movie. I think it will be a little silly but knew it was coming from the pic posted ages ago of plausible Hound's head on a stick during production. I thought we would have learned from Sentinel and Leadfoot.
Alas...Bayverse knows all...rules all...takes responsibility for nothing.

a. I don't see how this blurry pic confirms anything.
b. I don't see how robots with beards and cigars are any sillier than talking alien robots that transform into cars and planes. Should we go back to 1984 and list all the ridiculous things that have appeared in TF cartoons and comics? I think beards and cigars will be minor in comparison. We can start here:

Image

Should we talk about the time the TFs were toys in the bedroom of a giant alien child? Or the time Powerglide rode a carousel? Or the time Hoist went to Hollywood to become a movie actor? When has Transformers NOT had silly stuff in it?

I'm glad I wasn't the only one to make the connection between his look and that of the Pretender figures. It was the first thing to come to mind.
Regardless of size and complexity I'm tempted to get the figure based off of these early pics but I may still have to see one in hand before making the final decision. I have a sub-collection going of assault style/military TF figures and while this one may be quite simplified compared to the rest of the figures I have, he may still fit in well with the display I have going.
So far, Hound (and the 67 Camaro 'Bee) is the only thing remotely intriguing to me about the new movie but I'm still waiting to see if they come up with figures for the black off-road/rally cars that we saw early on in the behind the scenes photos. If they come out with those and they are done decently then I'll jump on them too.

Who says they don't need to breathe? Maybe they just switch on their... oxygen, or whatever they breathe tanks, when they're in an environment where they can't breathe?

How can anyone compare a 1984 children's cartoon that was half assed, to a 2007-2014 live action movie franchise that should have those silly things written out by now?

I am never going to tell anyone I like these movies or that I think these comedic insults to giant waring robots are okay.
