The official Transformers YouTube channel has uploaded a new video, featuring a look at the work going on behind the scenes, directly on the desk of toy designer manager John Warden and Bill Paukert themselves! From colours, to alt modes to transformation to translating movie designs to plastic form, and materials, it's all in there, especially focused on the dinobots: take a look at the embedded video below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

"Just when you think transformers can't imprss you any more...", man that toy designer must have set himself some pretty low expectations for the films to keep impressing him.

Though I will say that Optimus on a robot Dinosaur is pretty cool.

i love behind the scenes stuff.. takes away a bit of the "magic" but it's always interesting. Wish hasbro would do a documentary about the process and how it changed from back in the 70s and 80s to now with technological advances and also certain considerations such as health and safety etc

Just an update for anyone who cares, Amazon appears to have either pulled or pre-order sold out of the wave 1 AOE stock. Maybe on Sunday more items will pop up as people drop orders, who knows.

I'm still waiting on stores. Seems dumb, I agree, but there's something fun about getting stuff at brick and mortar, plus the opportunity for that doesn't come around much anymore.

Looks like the only Prime I'll be getting from this line is the 'Evasion' mode.

Seibertron.com staff member Mindmaster has spotted two new ConstructBots Dinowarriors at his local Toys'R'Us store in Wilmington, North Carolina! The sets, along with Optimus Prime and Gnaw, include Autobot Drift and the bounty hunter Lockdown, each with their respective dino-armor, Roughneck and Hangnail, and were priced at $12.99. Check out photo proof below!

The by now infamous Transformers Colombia Facebook page has uploaded another set of images of an upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction two-pack Evolution Toys'R'Us exclusive, this time featuring Bumblebee. The pack appears to include a repaint of the 2013 Generations Legends Bumblebee with a yellow repaint of the MechTech weapon that came with Dark of the Moon Deluxe Jolt, and a so far unseen Age of Extinction Deluxe, possibly the 2014 Camaro version of the character, with rotating blade like weapons. Check out the images mirrored below!

That gun the Legends Bee has is the MechTech weapon that originally came with DOTM Deluxe Jolt.

I like less colorful BEE and his new GHAT!

The AOE BEE car mode looks like a model built by a drunkard.

In the end of the video, you can see the Deluxe Lockdown looking at Hound!

Funny how both Bumblebees have the same kind of cheatsy transformation.

Once he's transformed correctly, Bumblebee should look like a pretty decent figure.
The false chest doesn't bother me. It looks accurate so I'm happy. I really like the way the legs look.

I'm assuming that this is as good as seeing Stinger's deluxe robot mode as well.
