The Transformers Facebook page has updated their "cover" to show off a great piece of official art of Age Of Extinction Optimus Prime riding Grimlock, which is sure to become one of the most used images during the movie release. We have a great look at the dino-head design of Grimlock with this image!

Keep it here on TFW as we continue to bring you the news this weekend!

Nice.

Finally an accurate Grimlock promo art.

Just like Shockwave (also in a Cybertronian form), the colour is awfully faded but there. I think I'm seeing gold along Grimlock's neck. I like how they don't make the colour bold but more faded and natural but, coloured (non-painted) metal needs to have a more vivid presence. Remember all the squinting needed to see if Shockwave was purple in DOTM?

The cgi model was indeed purple but it was the heavy colour grading that ruined it.

Giddy-yup.

Brutally awesome!
Red Goblin
Plus I don't care what anyone else says, horns are AWESOME.

Whoever they've employed to draw these new drawings needs a medal because with some exceptions, they're pretty amazing.

Sadly closer to the real Dinobots than Grimlock is...

Every time I see this I here in my head, "Me Grimlock use to be king, now me Grimlock just big dumb pony."

Blech. That's just the other Optimus box art with Grimlock in front of it.
That's probably Grimlock's normal box art, too.

As a HUGE dinosaur nerd, I honestly have zero problems with the exaggerated designs of the movie dinobots. In fact, the movie dinobots are the only Bayformers besides Barricade and Shockwave I honestly think Bay improved on the original design.

G1 dinobots were plodding jokes, based on a painting from the 1800's that is woefully inaccurate. Bay's Dinobots, while also not anatomically correct, at least have the beasts as energetic, streamlined beasts. Closer to jurassic park than flintstones.

I so want a Movieverse 2.0 based cartoon series with this style of animation.
tonyformer
They need to make a movie verse cartoon based off of this art work! It would be the best TFs cartoon ever!

So, like, I guess you don't remember Wheelie riding him in the original movie?

Jeez people are so... ugh. Just ugh. Optimus riding Grimlock is awesome, the two "leaders" teaming up. Grimlock was always been a big dumb something. He's never really been cool until... huh, until now I guess. Even in Animated they were stupid and didn't do much. In FOC he was just a lame Hulk ripoff.

i think thats just the same art on the box of the first edition AOE prime but the grimlock art is new.

Not everyone does remember that and or not everyone here is a G1 fan. Some have never even seen any G1 cartoons. You have to keep that in mind.

Then why did he say "Grimlock USED to be king." That implies prior knowledge.

If people are gonna mention the movies not being like the old, well, it's a double-edged sword.

Just you wait until we have an one-liner in the film explaining that all the Dinobots scanned real Dinosaurs...

I have all 3 versions of the original animated movie - and trust me. Having a small robot ride a massive Dinosaur is fine. The fact is that its Optimus riding Grimlock which seems more like a gimmick while in the animated movie the scene with Wheelie riding Grimlock is on screen for less than a couple of seconds and that's solely because Grimlock allows him (From memory as I watched the film yesterday)

It also made sense in the animated movie as their was no need for Grimlock to Transform. Yet in the movie we're going to have an akward scene of a 30ft Optimus climbing onto a 60ft Grimlock - then having to get off a 60ft Grimlock when he transforms into a 100ft monstrous robot...

I'm pretty sure it hasn't been confirmed that Grimlock transforms. And don't go on and say the toy does, and I don't want to hear anything about a pixelated image either. Don't go on about Grimlock did in G1, because these movies are different.

Don't start making futile complaints about facts we don't even know about. If he does transform, and it looks as silly as you're making it out to be, complain all you want.

I don't know if you drove your Delorean in front of a train and got yourself stuck in the past, but it's time to understand that the movies are almost incomparable to what was seen G1, or any other animated series for that matter. Other than the fact that we have fighting robots and people, what else is there to compare? I find it quite silly to compare a live-action film to an animated cartoon. If you're going to do that, you might as well compare Spongebob Squarepants to a dish sponge sitting next to your sink.

Okay

EPIC!!! Ready for battle!

So Grimlock is the new Yoshi?
leov36
Why does Grimlock have ears? Or are those suppose to be horns? Whatever they are every time I see them I think of ears.
Yggdrasil
That looks like the FE Optimus art photoshopped to a grimlock.

Maybe there will be a massive leader Grimlock that the FE Optimus can ride on...

This is two different pictures photoshopped together. I don't think Optimus and Grimlock's packaging art were meant to go together tbh.
