I know there’s a lot of people out there who think Michael Bay is horrible and only lives to blow things up and ruin their childhood. I say, “Suck it”. The man knows how to direct, way more than a Paul Greengrass who just uses shaky cam techniques, or a Uwe Boll  who bastardizes almost every franchise he touches.

Bay may not always need plot to drive his films, but they are ENTERTAINING. So, knowing that Optimus Prime for Transformers: Age of Extinction is back to punch other giant robots in the face; has me pretty excited. Below, is the first look we have at the Leader of the Autobots, as well as a couple of on-set videos! Check them out!
