Taking Our Time to Unearth the Dinobots in Transformers 4: Age of Extinction

4 Feb

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Yes, Marvel Entertainment’s big two movie trailer releases (Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: Winter Soldier) eclipsed Michael Bay’s Transformers 4 by more than a long shot. Although all three films are heavy hitters for the spring/summer blockbuster season, there is no denying that the battle for box office dollars will be owned by a comic book company than a director who simply loves it loud — namely to put in as much fast action, explosives and wow-factor into a jam-packed 100 minutes of intestinal fortitude.

There’s no official word as to how long this film is, but the trailer certainly has all the above mentioned traits to make dissecting this product a bit tough. Here are guesses at what each frame represents, after it has been hacked at by The Vintage Tempest’s sword.

Although dark and grey, this unknown Transformer looks like a sniper mech. Could this be Cyclonus or Lockdown?

Megatron is back, and he looks more than bad. He’s downright terrifying in this frame where he’s about to slice a car in half.

This Autobot is certainly dishing out the damage in the skies, but is this Hound?

If this Dinobot is Swoop, he has two heads than one. Or could this be a Predacon? That would make this movie a must watch if audiences get to see two primordial factions duke it out for the fate of Earth. And it would give fans what they have wanted since Transformers: Prime went off the air. The Dinobots and Predacons have to fight! Instead, here, Bumblebee is going to dish out some hurt WWE style!

To see Optimus Prime riding Grimlock looks classic. The top frame harkens to the style of art seen on medieval tapestries and the bottom frame is straight out of Jurassic Park. But if that’s how big this Dinobot is, can anyone imagine the size of him when he transforms to humanoid mode? Optimus will look tiny when standing next to these dinosaur man-bots!

At least setting part of the story in China is appropriate because out in the Gobi Desert, anything can be hiding there. That may be where the Dinobots are unearthed.
