Planet Iacon have posted an image, which can be viewed below, of a new Optimus Prime figure from Transformers 4. The figure is clearly different to the version which has previously been leaked suggesting that this version could be a higher class of figure, perhaps voyager or leader class.
Alfes 2010 has posted an article over on his blog featuring the recently released TakaraTomy Transformers Generations TG-26 Bumblebee Goldbug and TG-27 Trailbreaker & Hoist. The images, he has posted, include comparison shots to their Hasbro counterparts (though he compares Goldbug to Bumblebee and not Goldfire). All of the toys feature alternate decos to their western release with the usual metallic paint applications but also it should be noted that Goldbug coes with a blue Generations Bumblebee head and not the Goldfire one. A Trailbreaker also features a red visor making the toy a close homage to the original G1 figure whilst Hoist features a darker shade of green. You can view all of the images by clicking the link above.
In an interview with the website SlashFilm, Michael Bay as confirmed that Transformers: Age Of Extinction, the 4th live action movie, will be the first film to be shot in full with IMAX digital 3D cameras. Below you will find an extract from the article that relates to TF:AOE.
Up until now, every feature film shot in full IMAX (of which there have been only a handful – The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Dark Knight Rises, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Star Trek Into Darkness and now The Hunger Games Catching Fire) has filmed with a 65mm 2D IMAX film camera. IMAX has a 3D film camera available, but most filmmakers find it too big and loud to actually use. (Star Trek Into Darkness is the only of those films to be exhibited in IMAX 3D, but it was post-converted.) It wasn’t until recently that IMAX created a 3D digital camera, which will allow 3D capture in full IMAX. The first filmmaker to use that is Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction. That camera is much smaller and lighter than the other IMAX 3D cameras and will be used quite a bit in the future. There is no 2D digital IMAX camera, but one is being developed. Murray explains some more:
[The 3D digital camera] offers the full height aspect ratio. Our camera is based on a digital camera called Phantom. It’s a 3D camera, so we used two of their sensors and the reason we picked them was they were the closest sensor size to IMAX film frames. They’re not quite as big as IMAX film frames, but they are very close. They allow us to use the same lenses that we developed for our 3D film camera, which is much bigger and heavier. This 3D digital camera is very light and compact and easy to use.

The Huffington Post have posted a social media share onto their Google+ account where they share the 2nd interview that we, the Transformers At The Moon brothers, did with the Google Hangouts show Collectors Hangout. Collectors Hangout now has around 600k followers on Google+ and despite a recent hiatus, is set to return with new episodes very shortly.
You can watch both of the episodes featuring ourselves below.
TakaraTomy have pubilshed the first chapter of their "Guardians of Time" story which is being published under the Transformers Cloud banner. The story is accompanied by an image showing the characters which, if you look close, appears to show Rodimus (Hot Rod) using the Springer Thrilling 30 mold which suggests that a repaint is on the way from TakaraTomy. You will also spot Blaster, Jazz, SWindle, Soundwave and Thundercracker
ComicBookMovie.com have posted some scans from the Jan 2014 issue of Empire Magazine which show some new on-set images from Transformers: Age of Extinction. The images are from the Chinese shoot and feature Nicola Peltz being menaced by a green "prop claw", that will be replacec by a CGI render, the Autobots Drift and Crosshairs driving with Optimus Prime towards a destroyed vehicle, Jack Reynor and Mark Wahlberg appearing to have a conversation with the Bumblebee, who is in his retro mode, as well as some general cast and crew shots.
You can view the images after the jump along with the other Transformers 4 images.
