To accompany the forthcoming movie Transformers: Age of Extinction Hasbro have released a batch of character art desktop wallpapers of the Autobots, Decepticons and Dinobots that will feature in the movie. These wallpapers include the names of the Transformers - leading to some unexpected surprises for those of use trying to decipher which Transformers will feature in the forthcoming movie...
No major suprisesreally for the Autobots, although we now know the name of the above Autobot, Crosshairs, who is seen in the trailer parachuting through a city with guns in each hand - as featured on our Facebook page.
Decepticon Lockdown is now fairly well known, but Stinger whom also appears in the movie many had wrongly presumed would be Rodimus, although if you look closely Stinger is identical to Bumblebee's new look, but in red (a shapeshifting Decepticon maybe)? The biggest surprise is the above Galvatron, who in the animated series was former Decpiticon leader Megatron reformatted into a new form by Unicron. Before there were any major details on the forthcoming movie many fans suspected Galvatron would feature as a way to resurrect Megatorn after his death at the hands of Optimus Prime in Dark of the Moon. Reportedly Galvatron will be a Transformer made by humans, presumably using Megatrons remains.
Grimlock is already well known to feature in the forthcoming movie, but his cohort from the animates series that transformed into a Triceratops, Slag, is here named Slug - a renaming or a typing error? Many fans have mentioned the possibility of Swoop (transformed into a Pteranodon) as seen in the trailer, but above the two headed "Flying Reptile" Dinobot is clearly named Strafe. Most interesting is the additional Scorn (Spinosaurus) and Slash (Velociraptor). Unfortunately their is no mention of Snarl, whom in the animated series transformed into a Stegosaurus.
In the animated series the Dinobots were created by Autobots Wheeljack and Ratchet. Yet it seems that only Ratchet will feature in Transformers: Age of Extinction. We have speculated here previously that maybe the Dinobots where a group of Transformers that arrived on Earth during the age of the Dinosaurs - and it appears we may have been right, if the below photo is correct (a clearer image of Grimlock breathing fire is below, courtesy of EW)?

More about Transformers: The Last Knight (movie)
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Directed by Michael Bay, Transformers: The Last Knight's release date is June 23rd, 2017.
