And here.. we.. are! The 48th Super Bowl has kicked off with one team doing something better than the other team, but the second team looks like it's-- Let's face it. Whether you're into sports or not, we all know the real reason why we're here, really - Transformers: Age of Extinction has finally showed us a trailer! We already saw a still earlier today, and our very own Seibertron is busy preparing a frame-by-frame gallery, which will go up later tonight. But for now, take a(nother) look at the Baytastic robofest embedded below!



Here's a breakdown of the Bayhem taking place in the scenes we can figure out:

- Giant spaceship exits smoke and fog, with robot character advancing menacingly on foot beneath it, possibly LOCKDOWN/GALVATRON?

- Tessa and Cade are clearly caught in the middle of a fight between 'Lockdown' and OPTIMUS PRIME, who proceeds to get shot through the chest by his opponent -- as 'Galvatron's' face turns into a gun.

- Different scene, different robot character - possibly STINGER - slices through a red car, as a fleet of spaceships heads towards Earth.

- Shane, Cade and Tessa flee from a series of massive explosions.

- Upside down OPTIMUS, held captive by another robot, who appears to be retracting an arm weapon.

- CROSSHAIRS para-shooting between some flying vehicles.

- Tessa cries out for her dad, Cade, as she appears trapped in a car. Cade runs towards her, and prepares to punch something in slow-motion.

- Optimus rolls sideways out of an explosion's way.

- BUMBLEBEE jumps upwards, also out of an explosion's way -- and is met by double-headed flying STRAFE!

- Optimus shown sword in hand, riding GRIMLOCK, who appears to be made out of limey, mossy rock, as they burst out of Chinese architecture.

Epic trailer. So Optimus will be riding in on Grimlock. Looks like Optimus might die early on.

THAT WAS TOO HYPE FOR WORDS!!! I don't think Optimus dies, but it looks like he gets injured and captured by Lockdown. And I would be COMPLETELY fine if that giant ship in the background of that first shot was Unicron. Also, the CG looks MUCH more realistic than the last 3. This is so awesome.

Dude's face turns into a gun. That's pretty slick.

That's two Dinobots we've seen, I can't wait to see more.

And thus begins the hype train.

That huge ship thing in the beginning had better be Unicron.

Primus, I don't completely hate it.

Maybe because Optimus riding a giant dinosaur is completely, unabashedly bitchin'.

Okay, Bay. I'll watch it. Ironically. [-(

Wow, I didn't think they'd show it that early. Looks like it'll be good, especially with Grimlock being so huge. Also, was that a 2-headed dragon, and if so, could it be Megatron/Galvatron?
Re: Transformers: Age Of Extinction Super Bowl Trailer! (1547465)

Also, I think I see a shot with the old Optimus design in the trailer. At about 0:22.

Looks like some robot kick-assery will surely be all over this mess. Females are always getting abducted or in peril. Seen that s*it dozens of times. Optimus riding on the back of an enormous Dinobot pulling a Conan/Devil Dinosaur mash-up, why not. My favorite part is Optimus walking underneath that massive ship/Metroplex?? thing. We'll see.

Looks alright. I did like the cleaner shots, it seems like you can actually see more of what is actually happening. Grimlock didn't really wow me, I gota say. He looks kinda boring with being just all spikey and big. I feel I need to see more actual yellow or gold on him. But yea, this still doesn't hold a candle to the Grimlock unveil in the NIS intro to FOC.

From the way that scene played out... I don't think that's a dinobot. I think that was a terrorcon :3... I'm so in if this is going to have abominus

Ya, I was thinking possibly Unicron too. Wondering if the bot with the gun head is Cyclonus. Also, possibly our first look at Galatron :-? ? Let the speculation begin!

I think the gun head is lockdown. He even had spikes on his shoulder.

That was the best first transformers commercial I ever seen :michaelbay:
We're you not entertained because :michaelbay: I sure was...
Grimlock is really that big and just terrifying to any Decepticon...
Optimus...

Was it confirmed that Unicron is in this? I was thinking that was Lockdown's ship. His ship in Animated was large enough to make a building facade. Since he is a bounty hunter, he's probably going to have a badass hunting ship

I see a robots face turn into a gun as part of its transformation into a Cybertronian cannon. Not a gun on top of a robot body. Is that what everyone means?

That was a really good trailer though, aside from the unnecessarily annoying moment where the female actress yell dad and Mark Wahlberg screams her name. I hate that crap.

My 720p caps of the trailer:

I am pleased that Optimus Prime looks better than that wretched toy. However, I am worried that the Dinobots won't have a robot mode. I really hope they don't just have vehicle to dinosaur transformations.

Hey, it's that poster bot!
Image

Image
Image
That pretty much settles that Swoop/Strafe/Paulie/whatever does in fact have 2 heads. It kinda looks like both are different; "Leftie's" got some mean fangs on his lower jaw which "Rightie" doesn't have.
(also, everything's kinda running together in that scene, *sigh*...)


Image
"Give me your face", eh?
Image
Yeah, I'll give you my face alright!
What tells me Optimus is NOT shot by Mr. Gun-for-a-Face, at least not in that particular scene?

Image
If this were any other series, I'd consider that spike/sword hand-replacement a sure sign this bot's Lockdown.
Also, seems like Optimus is having a spot of bad luck this movie. He appears to get thrashed in his old body, and then shot and captured in his new one.

Image
:michaelbay: but Grim seems a lot less colorful than other art implied.

EDIT: Didn't notice User897 also took screencaps, and a lot more of them at that.

Could Grimlock be the basis for all the "dragon" lore in China? At least thats how I see the plot pointing to.

And yes, Prime gets injured (his old DOTM body) but he seems to look different by the time he rides Gimlock(?). More like the FE fig being sold in Singapore.

So is it safe to say the Dinobots will be similar to their cartoon personas in this film, where they're pretty much just big and stupid?

Yeah, the only DOTM body sighting seemed to be near the end. The initial shot, him getting shot, him captive on (Lockdown's?) ship, and him riding Grimlock are all in the AOE body.

I like how the new optimus design represent the iconic window chest, changing it to a double red pieces, in all that blue it works awesome, the optimus flip over appear to be the rusty truck, and at the same time, in one of the images of the products of the uk toy fair, you can see the face of optimus and the forehead is damage, as in dotm.

Do you know that Bot that cut the car in half might be an Autobot ? Who remember the photo months ago where we could see the Autobots running behind and in front had a red car cut in half? Those red car had the DeceptConS insignia on it! So is possibly this Robot be an Autobot ?
Another thing is that Gun-Face probably is Galvatron. As Galvatron use to transform in a weapon, why not His face instead Himself transform in a gun?
Bumblebee looks so wicked and sleek.
Prime Looks amazing.
The Dinobots will kick the Decepticons off. Man Crosshairs is a freaking mercenary.
Grimlock is much more than I was imagining. Do you Remember what those Brazilian designer commented ? Fans were going to freak out... and so we did!

Posted by Bounti76 on February 2nd, 2014 @ 8:58pm CST
OKay...I've watched it several times now and this is what I've taken from it and other fans' consensuses (consensii?)

Bots I can figure out
Green parachute bot: Crosshairs
Optimus and Bumblebee are pretty self-explanatory.
Two-headed dragon/Dinobot: Strafe (aka Movie Swoop).
and of course...

GRIMLOCK :APPLAUSE:

Who I can't figure out

Silver bot cutting the red Chevy Malibu in half.
Bot on board the ship who's guarding a captive Optimus.
The bots in the scene right before Swoop and Bumblebee collide
Gun-faced bot:Lockdown? Galvatron?

Any ideas ladies and gentlemen?

Posted by Bounti76 on February 2nd, 2014 @ 9:02pm CST
Almost forgot....I'm almost positive the first bot we see in the trailer, walking away from the huge-ass ship...is Lockdown. You can't see a ton of detail, but if images of the hoodie and the toys from UK toyfair are accurate, the head looks clean and free from spikes of any sort....almost human. Which is how the bot (heavily rumored to be Lockdown) appeared on those items.
