Three New Images from Transformers: Age of Extinction Featuring Optimus Prime and Bumblebee


We are just about a month and a half away from our favorite robotic heroes exploding back onto the scene in Transformers: Age of Extinction. Late last week, it was announced that John Goodman and Ken Watanabe would be lending their voices to the cast as two members of the Autobots. Now, thanks to the people over at Empire Magazine, we now have a look at three new images from the film that feature two fan-favorites; Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

It would seem as if Bumblebee has received some pretty amazing upgrades in the time between Transformers: Dark of the Moon and now. He is now boasting what looks like giant throwing stars on his back and shoulders and an upgraded gun.

On the other hand, we have Optimus Prime, who is looking as epic as ever. In the first of the two photos, it would seem as if the leader of the Autobots is preparing to do battle with someone.

I the second, it seems that he has found himself firmly implanted into the solid ground below and is screaming to the heavens. Judging by the destruction behind him, I would say that he is enthralled in some pretty intense battle at this point in the game.
