UK Toy Fair 2014 Day 2 Transformers Toy & Merchandise News

Posted on 01-22-2014 at 12:57 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-4-Age-Of-Extinction-UK-Toy-Fair-2014
TFW2005 Boards member Soundwavedotm had the privilege to visit UK Toy Fair 2014 and to see the Transformers: Age of Extinction toyline from Hasbro… and hear about the trailer.

At the moment he's sending us the details. Watch this space and the associated thread for the latest news as we receive it.

According to Soundwavedotm, details of the first trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction were revealed at the show floor and it will feature Grimlock (this newsie assumes that the Dinobots' presence in the 4th installment is not a spoiler anymore).

The first two waves of the toyline will feature most of the main cast. This was a huge issue with Dark of the Moon's toyline as many great Cybertronians were left out without a toy. Hasbro, you are doing it right.

Some of the toys he saw: Optimus Prime (Voyager and Leader), Bumblebee, Drift (Bugatti Veyron), Crosshairs (now we have the name confirmed), Lockdown (Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4) and Grimlock in his t-rex mode.

The Generations line was also spotted... and they all looked good (*sighs of relief from many fans*).

More to come. Stay tuned with TFW2005.

First being the trailer would of aired (revealing grimlock)
Second the first two waves confirm most of the cast line up (they are doing things very different to the previous toy lines)
Third being the story line that is being used in this film is very unique.

I can't reveal loads as you are taken through some strict checks as a trader and my friend runs a toy business that could get hit hard on the discovery of me leaking information but I can reveal the items I saw included;

Optimus prime leader and voyager
Bumblebee
Drift (surprised by his look but loved it!) the license for drift was easy to obtain hence the 2007 move plus they loved his robot mode I was told.
Crosshairs
Knockdown (who is very sexy, anyone remember footage of him chasing the rusty truck cough OPTIMUS cough, hint as to a scene there)
Grimlock - only saw dino mode looks to transform

The items on show looked good for the generations line

In terms of the jousters nothing on display but all will be revealed at US toy fair plus we have a guide catalog on its way to is in the next month.

I didn't spend long in the booth a matter of mear minutes discussing products and shipments but got tidbits about the film plans though. There is more on show tomorrow too.
Grimlock, was that Voyager or Leader?

ucdavisboy
Unique story line.....hmmmmm; the Autobots have been banished to China where they now hide out as Samurai before time warping back to the Jurassic where they scan dinosaurs and return with the Dinobots?

So can we assume that Lockdown is the main Decepticon? Or is there a higher commander *cough* Galvatron *cough*?

Appreciate what you could share! I think I'll be looking more forward to the Super Bowl trailer than the game given I'm a Denver fan and won't be particularly enjoying the game lol

Thanks! This will hold me over until the trailer and the US toy fair.

So is Lockdown called Knockdown now?
QLRformer
Knockdown or Lockdown? Or is Knockdown a new name?

And only two questions, regarding two bots:
1 - do you know if Cyclonus was there?

2 - How did Grimlock look in both beast/bot mode? Can you give a description or are you banned from that?

And thank you for what you're telling us.

I get the feeling that Knockdown is a separate character and from the description appears to be the Argosy

Thanks for sharing some info. Should hopefully calm down some of the people bitching... Anyways a link a page or two back has pictures of some RC cars and a weird looking helicopter. Do you know if the helicopter is a character? Like say, Cyclonus?
Niv3k
Any words on Cyclonus, Galvatron or just any Decepticon besides Lockdown?

I think you mean lockdown chasing the rusted truck
Soundwavedotm
I am aware of the baddies lockdown plays the biggest role for something greater. But that's all I can give
Bumblethumper
Knockdown would've actually been a cool name. He looks like he'd run you over.
BenjaminXavier
One question on Generations:

In the leaked list before, there was a Leader Jetfire and Leader Megatron? Were those there? were they (roughly) G1 inspired?

If you can't say, that's cool. That's just the one thing I've been dying to know for months.
ArmadaSentinel
Could you pm other information not to be shared? I'd really appreciate that if you could
So Crosshairs is the final name then

Cool, cheers for sharing. I know a few guys have already got you to spill more than you said you would, but were the Leader and Voyager Optimus two different modes/versions?

Cant you just release the information via a private message or alternatively release it as an anonymous source?

Then again - I don't see why you cant tell us these things in the first place...

I was the only guy there asking questions about the film and product rather than sales, profit margins and potential turnover plus shipments etc anything that links back could affect my friend which I wouldn't rather but lockdown and galvatron as toys is confirmed but I didn't see galvatron. Lockdown is still being confirmed as the main baddy
Ravenxl7
Were there any non-AoE toys on-display?
GaussGunner
It say what we not get any images(?
Niv3k
Thanks for all the info I really appreciate it =)
I'm dying to know who the bad guys are now.
ArmadaSentinel
what about PMs though? Im sure no one would share the information if you told them not too

I've done events like this before. You have to sign an non-disclosure agreement to not reveal what you have seen until after a certain date, usually. Because he was with a friend who owns a store, if he reveals anything anonymously or otherwise, it'll be traced back to him and that will land his friend in trouble.

Trust me, Hasbro is very hot on leaks right now. If you leak something out, they WILL trace it back to you. It's why I'm so anal about properly sourcing everything.
Red Goblin
Thanks for the info. I think it would be better to describe the toys you saw. Crosshairs and Lockdown especially.

Can't wait for pictures, What did Grimlock look like and is Lockdown a one hook robot?
Basilisk
Thank you So Much Soundwave! Man I'm really excited to see the reveal of Drift and Lockdown's figures!

I'm just going to quote this, and stress a big THANK YOU to soundwavedotm for sharing what he has.

We'll all see everything in a few weeks.

The single best thing we've heard is that all the major characters will be out in the first few waves, which shows they're learning how to solve distro problems. yay for that!

Popular fan theory, but the name has never come up in any listings, and it was once said that the character choice for the truck would likely dissapoint and piss-off the fan-base.

Mechafire
Yo guys, stop asking him for more info. If he does, it'll land his friend in deep shit. Just wait for US Toy Fair; it's not that long from now, only like a month away. Patience.

Anyway, thanks for all the info, Soundwavedotm!
Daimao
Thanks for the info! Of the leaked Optimus toys that we've seen, can you identify either of them as the Leader or Voyager that you saw?
Soundwavedotm
Btw the trailer wasn't shown at the show floor it was mentioned to have grimlock debut in it before people think I've seen it. But hasbro is holding back reveals till it has aired

And besides! Rather than being dicks, Hasbro saved most of it for the event
we all will be looking at.

Wait 3 weeks.

toaprime
Thanks for all the info! Just one question: Will Wheeljack and other unreleased DOTM toys make it to the AOE toyline?
