Transformers 4 - Dinobots Officially Confirmed, New Cars, No TF4 Chinese Edition

Posted on 09-01-2013 at 09:25 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-4-Lorenzo-di-Bonaventura-Dinobots-E-jet
In an exclusive interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Beijing News is revealing some cool Transformers 4 news.

First of all, now we have the official confirmation of the existence of Dinobots on Transformers 4. The secret was leaked not too long ago and the officials may have thought to finally reveal it since the cats are out of the bag.

"I can not disclose the specifics, but you can be sure that the joining of the Dinobots will give the audience new excitement. In addition to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, the appearance of these classic roles changed, today the world's coolest, most exciting cars will appear in the film, including China's vehicles, whether you are a car enthusiast, you will feast your eyes and be shocked by them."

With this news, we now also have a confirmation on the possibility of Chinese Concept Car E-jet being a Cybertronian in disguise as well.

And the producer also mentioned that there will be no Special TF4 Chinese Edition like Iron Man 3 was. (IM3 Chinese Edition Incident was a fiasco which production studios may not try to repeat).

"I know that "Iron Man 3" had a special edition released in China, but "Transformers 4" will only have one version globally"

Filming in China will be in Beijing and Hong Kong and two additional cities:

"In China we have chosen Beijing and Hong Kong, as well as two more cities we are looking at."

Props to 2005 Boards member GabrielPrime for the link and translation.

My apologies in advance, I did my best to combine translations from both Google and Microsoft translators, but I might got it all horribly wrong…
Any assistance from members who can read Chinese will be greatly appreciated.

And one "GI Joe 3" reference:
that cool nice find
Red Goblin
That'll explain the E-Jet concept we saw yesterday.
Niven
when asked about The Dinobots, he says he can't go into specifics.

he also said there will be more interaction with the Transformers and Humans in the film
QLRformer
That sounds nice.
EpicTransformer
guys has anyone wondered why China takes such a big place in TF4? Maybe long long ago Cybertronians and Chinese people interacted and they learned Cybertronian but they named it the Chinese language? I think that could work.
tonyformer
Looks like I was right about the E-Jet lol

It's probably because the Dinobots were discovered there, or the ancient relic was found there because Chinese sounds nothing like Cybertronian.

I think he mean Cybertronian Symbols look similar to Chinese, may Chinese became a modern variation of Cybertronian

In ROTF there was a scene we they stated that Cybertronian symbols where popping up all over the Globe... what if they originally appeared within the first settlements of china, and they incorporated the language into their own and then over time the symbols evolved into Chinese

They are in bud. The difference this time is we have the hats, info on the toy line, all call sheets, just confirmed here, (will have posters, group and single) and have been seen on Clapper boards. Now an article with confirmation.

That's an interesting idea, because of that, Bay could also tie in the ROTF movie.

Yeah, because I know that when I want to see a Transformers movie all I care about is the new cool cars.

F*ck*n' Bayformers.

I would wait on it being 100% .. a lot of that report could have been lost in translation. he may have said (when questioned about the Dinobots)

"I can't go into specifics, however if the Dinobots were in this film it would give the Audience excitement."


like I said he may have slipped up or it could be misinformation or like I said lost in translation ...

if he has slipped up, which by now Bay will know .... an announcement will be round the corner
iceburn9
Am not keen on the Dinobots, and could care less about the cars.

More interested to see what other Decepticons there are, hopefully with some unique (non-car) alternate modes.
mttyns
Does that mean there'll be even more licensed figures that I'll be compelled to buy? lol
harrismonkey
So, will Hasbro still manage to find a way not to make Dinobot toys?

I think Bay already knows that a lot of us know. He let someone come up and take a picture of the hat design didn't he? She even kinda posed for the picture...
Also she could have stopped the picture taker and made him delete it

No I didn't. I don't actually care that there will be a new set of cars that transform into dinosaurs... if they even do that. There is no confirmation that there will be robots that turn into dinosaurs in the movie. There was a confirmation that we would have "dinobots". For Bay movies that probably means robot dinosaurs that turn into cars, or old robots that transform into old cars that get called "dinobots" the same way you call an old person a dinosaur. All we have here is confirmation of what we already know. That there are "Dinobots" in the movie and that the movie is apparently for "car enthusiasts" because as I said before, you know it's a good "Transformers" movie when you feel like your watching a g*dd*mn auto show parade.

I bloody well hope not. Up until DOTM I really couldn't see them working in the movieverse, but four movies in feels about the right time for them, and after TFP's take on the Predacons I'm actually looking forward owning some Bayified dinos!

Exactly my point... if bay wanted to keep it a secret they would not have the hats on. as the dinobots would clearly be a CGI only.

however if he wanted to piss people off with Mis-information then he would gladly let people take pictures of the hats

I don't think Bay would go into that kind of length for a misinformation campaign, Niven. I mean producing hats and all.

this is Bay we are talking about. the man who said Megatron would not be in ROTF, who said the twins were not in DOTM (Although you clearly see them driving in with the other autobots)

just saying .... as yes it appears that they are in.. until it is officially announced I will remain on the fence

I wouldn't be so sure that's the case, I think the Dinobots will be exactly what they've always been:

Anyway, yes I do know some "things". Probably know more than I should but that's nor here or there.

As for the Dinobots, now that's its unofficialy officially out of the closest. I can't confirm that all 5 are in but I can't confirm all 5 are not in either. I can confirm Grimlock, Swoop and Slag/Slug. They are in Dino mode and do transform from Dino to robot. They do not (at least last I seen) look like real Dinos. Meaning no real looking skin. Grimlock (in concept) does talk in both modes. Swoop has machine guns in his wings and in Bot mode his Dino head becomes his left arm. Slag/Slug as I can not confirm just how they will name him yet, has one hell of a temper!

It is officially announced. You're just trolling now, dude.

I'm not trolling ... but has Michael bay come out and announced ... as I think something like that he would do himself..

you are basing that its been officially announced from a badly translated report...
soundwave69
If people are thinking the Chinese influence being forced down our throats is this movie has to do with anything other than $$$, you are mistaken. Simple case of another Hollywood movie sucking up to the overbearing Chinese government in order to get the movie in their (sometimes) lucrative market.

This has been going on for years but finally really hit the news with iron Man 3 this summer.

The misinformation for saying Megatron was not in ROTF was obviously to try and create some kind of element of surprise/suspense, though of the relese of the toys and other merchandise pretty much buggered that up lol As for the Twins, yes we're all aware the cars intended for them appeared a for a few seconds, but seriously, they never actually transformed into robots so it really is just splitting hairs to say Skids or Mudflap as characters appeared in DOTM. We know they got cut from the script part way through filming, the cars themselves are just cars at the end of the day, there are Chevrolet Sparks in the world that aren't Autobots. I mean it's not as if every F-22 in TF1 was Starscream...

while leaked, you don't count the call sheet? And while I know my revelings are not proof, you will see what I said about the poster(s) and at some point Clapper Boards is true.

To be fair, when has the big-budget Hollywood movie scene not been about making money?

Well......the interview said the E-Jet will be in the movie, but never stated/hinted it would be a Cybertronian.

I am SERIOUSLY not holding my breath that the Dinobots will actually be a part of TF4. I will wait and see..and hope ta god that Bay and his boys don't totally destroy the long-held, beloved legend, history, and mythos of Grimlock and the rest of the Dinobots!

Correct.. I would be happy with a Mid-credits scene where they hint at them maybe even a glimpse... to set up for TF5

Agreed. I was hoping that we would get Thundercracker and Skywarp finally, but with the demise of Starscream...that seems like that wish is out the door. LOL
Slimshadow457
Just... Uh?! But... Wait, so we got the Dinobots, we got Prime, Bee, Drift, the other car, the freightliner, the Lambo, the Pagani, Chinese cars,... Just how many characters, LET ALONE Autobots are we going to have?! Not to mention Whalberg's mandatory human-screen-time and all the humans, just how much will we get to see all these bots shine? Is it going to be Optimus 'n' Bumblebee 'n' all the other Jol-- I mean Autobots that won't appear more than 2 seconds in the background?! I don't want that scrap!
