It seems almost impossible a new Transformers movie is hitting theaters this year, but come June 27, Transformers: Age of Extinction will descend on theaters and today Entertainment Weekly has premiered the above picture of the dinobot named Grimlock while just below are 13 character portraits featuring the robot lineup featured in the film courtesy of Hasbro (via TFW2005).

Featured robot character art includes such Autobots and Decepticons as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Strafe, Drift, Hound, Lockdown, Galvatron and Stinger as well as four Dinobots in Scorn, Slash and Slug.

Director Michael Bay told Entertainment Weekly, Age of Extinction is meant to be the first film in a new Transformers trilogy, though he’s unsure if he’ll be doing the next two.

He also commented on one particular robot character, that being Lockdown saying:

“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.”

Transformers: Age of Extinction hits theaters on June 27.
