You guys know. You saw the Super Bowl, or know someone that saw the Super Bowl. You go to the websites that post all of the ads days beforehand. Sill, it’s my job as the resident Transformers geek to put this up for review, discussion and analysis. We’ve seen the spy photos from toy shows. […]

I’d say it’s official. Grimlock is in Transformers 4
