Hasbro have recently updated their website with character art of the Transformer toys that will be sold with the release of the upcoming Transformers movie (Directed by Michael Bay). This art will be on the packaging along with descriptions of each of the characters.
Along with the release of the images, Michael Bay recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly stating ‘The Age of Extinction’ is supposed to be the first part of a new Transformers Trilogy however he may or may not be involved in the next two. He also had this to say about one of the new characters:
“Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he’s here for one person, one alien, and then he’s out of here,” Bay says. “So he doesn’t really want to take sides. The cause and balance of the galaxy is kind of messed up when different species play with different species. And that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers… Lockdown’s ship has a lot of meaning that can go into other movies. There’s a lot of backstory about that ship that’s not laid out here. You’re going to see a few things where you’re like ‘What is that? And what is that?’ And you’re going to see a couple shots like, ‘Wait a minute, who are they?’ But we don’t answer those questions.”
