And now it’s time for some more Transformers 4 news, whether you like it or not. Michael Bay has been making all sorts of announcements about which new Transformers will be appearing in the fourth installment of the franchise, along with some of the changes that are being made to their design. This time up, he’s just confirmed that Hound will be taking part in the new flick. Look down a bit to see what he’s looking like.
If you feel so inclined as to watch it, Transformers 4 will be hitting theaters on June 27th, 2014.
“ME, GRIMLOCK, CAST IN TRANSFORMERS 4? WHY THEY NOT CAST ME IN TRANSFORMERS 1? GRIMLOCK WANT TO BE IN FIRST TRANSFORMERS MOVIE.”
Above’s an exclusive quote I got when asking my Grimlock toy how he felt about being passed over, repeatedly, only to now be rumored as appearing in Tranformers 4. Grimlock, if you’ll remember, did have an important and valuable role in 1986’s Transformers: The Movie, a film almost universally considered better than anything the Michael Bay‘s franchise has produced. Here’s a collection of the Dinobot’s “best” moments,
Can we just get a restored, re-release of this movie? kthnxbye
So what of Grimlock and the Dinobots – also the name of my Vince DiCola cover band – appearing in Transformers 4? It’s the latest rumor rounded up by JoBlo about the Bayformers fourquel. Their source has told them not only will the Dinobots appear, but at one point Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will ride them into battle. To which I say, don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep! I would pay good money to see this! Anyone would pay good money to see that! They’ve already given themselves away with such a bold-faced lie, because nothing, nothing as cool as Prime riding a Dinobot would happen in a Bayformers flick.
Other classic ‘bots rumored to appear are the Autobot Hound and the Decepticon leader, Galvatron, who’s little more than a “resurrected” Megatron. There’s also talk of a “samurai’ Transformer, named Drift, who was once a Decepticon but seeks to regain his honor by joining the Autobots.
Damn, no Wheelie.
I’ll say I’m happy to hear some news about the ROBOTS of this “robots in disguise” franchise, as they’re often overlooked for whatever stupid humans are cast. But, I don’t know if even the Dinobots are enough to get me excited about Transformers 4. What are you guys thinking?
