Livio Ramondelli recently, uh... Tweeted his cover art for an issue of the upcoming Angry Birds Transformers comic book from IDW. It's a fun image in a lighter version of his painterly style, a fun change for Livio and for us! Keep reading to see the image!



Hasbro is giving away free posters showing the Age of Extinction toys in a Hong Kong street scene, and BaCon's got one! Looks like there's even a 10% HasbroToyShop coupon on there, so click through to see the poster and then ask a friend at SDCC to grab you one!



Announced at SDCC 2014, G1 Slog is probably the least different from his retail deco but if you want to round out your Comic-Con G1 Dinobots set, he's a must-have! Amazon has put up a preorder page for the figure, who has a list price of $34.99 and a ship date of December 15th. Keep reading for mirrored images and a link, and get your holiday shopping for the Dinobot fan in your life done now!



Robot Kingdom has posted a gallery of Hasbro Asia's booth from ACGHK 2014, including looks at the second Hot Toys release of Optimus Prime, this time in Megatron-Corpse-Wearin' Flavor. Also present are some limited edition releases of Age of Extinction toys, Dual Model Kit TF4 Optimus Prime, and the Kids Logic precious metal-plated SD figurines. Keep reading for all the mirrored images!



The Furyu Prize Blog has posted images of a new Lost Age Optimus Prime prize figure that will be released in November 2014. Seeing as it's listed as a "prize" figure, it'll probably be available primarily through Japanese arcades through the UFO Catcher and similar crane-game machines. The figure's listed as 16cm tall, but we don't know if that's head height, or to the top of the sword. Keep reading for the mirrored photos!



The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a special unboxing video for the G1 Dinobots boxset exclusive to Comic-Con International. Click through to get a link to the design team walking you through the packaging as well as all the numerous G1 callouts in these elaborate Age of Extinction recolors!



BaCon's at Comic-Con International 2014, and he's got pictures of Hasbro's opening night display cases! Get a good look at the Masterpiece, Generations, Age of Extinction and Kre-O pieces on display as well as the limited edition guitar we posted about earlier. Keep reading to see wall-to-wall coverage of the booth, with a whopping 463 pictures!



Figure-Oh (Figure King) magazine has revealed that 3,000 Yen (About $30) worth of Age of Extinction toys will net you a special Astrotrain-themed Micron at Japanese ToysRUs stores this August. The clear purple plastic Mini-Con uses the same mold as Payload, the space shuttle partner of Generations Legends Cosmos. Keep reading to see the scan!



Concept Artist Steve Jung, who has also worked on The Avengers, has posted a selection of his concept art to Facebook. Highlights include the interior of Lockdown's ship and its very regal cockpit, the Hong Kong street battle featuring the Dinobots, and most interestingly Widow Maker, a female Decepticon who was to transform into a Pagani Zonda. She was Jung's only full character design for Age of Extinction and, sadly, she didn't make the cut. Click through to see all the mirrored images!



Robot Kingdom has shared an image of the upcoming AD-31 "Saikyou" (Strongest/Ultimate) Optimus Prime, which appears to be a power-up form of Prime that uses the Generations Leader class mold. Seeing as that mold was already used as AD-01 in a similar but superior deco to the US release, could this be a Silver Knight color scheme like the one Target seems to be so in love with? More info as it becomes available, but for now check out the incredibly vague magazine scan!

An official site for the Transformers Human Alliance Game has been launched by Sega Japan with what appears to be a game based on the characters from the first three Transformers movies. The trailer shows a Shia-like character by the name of Sam along with renderings of the Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream and other characters like Shockwave lurking on the site page, in their pre-Age of Extinction forms. Read on to see the trailer for the full preview now.


The Age of Extinction mobile game is now available for free on iTunes! Described as a "Combat Runner," the game presumably entails running forward and avoiding obstacles while also shooting things. Check out the full article for the iTunes description and a link to the game!

Interviews


The Huffington Post have posted an interview with three time Transformers movie writer Ehren Kruger who penned the latest "Transformers: Are of Extinction" movie that swept box offices last weekend. In the article the writer shares a number of insights about how the so-called new trilogy was decided on as well as many of the aspects be brings to the table. We learn about director Michael Bay's idea to make this new forray a "Father-Daughter" story as well as the origins of Lockdown and the one character Bay will never do (which means he will, at some point).


Age of Extinction's Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson) and Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager) were interviewed by io9 about what it was like to work with director Michael Bay and how the effects shots were accomplished. Peltz described one finished shot she got to see recently as "That was (Michael Bay) hitting me with a broom." Click the title for an excerpt and a link to the full interview!
