The brand new Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer dropped at the Superbowl. It was A-MAZING, but there were plenty of spoilerific Easter eggs for the eagle-eyed fan. Let's break this down.

Here's the lovely shiny new Optimus Prime.

It's hard to see, but it looks like he might be mid-transformation. Is his back end still half truck in this shot?

The mystery robot is...Galvatron?

His head transforms into a gun, the trademark of the resurrected Megatron, aka Galvatron. Also, it was originally rumored that Transformers 4 would be titled Rise of Galvatron, strongly hinting he'll be involved.

If that's Galvatron, his ship could be The Revenge.

The giant ship could be The Revenge, which is given to Galvatron by Unicron. This is a small hint, but could this mean that UNICRON is gonna appear by the next Transformers movie?

Galva/Megatron blows up shiny new Optimus Prime.

My guess is that Prime wades into battle when he hears Megatron/Galvatron is back, races along the road & gets shot for his efforts. This probably isn't anything to worry about, though; Optimus getting blasted means he should be bigger and better when he comes back.

Galva/Megatron cuts a car in half

This guy's gonna do some serious damage. Plus, dude looks like he's got an arc reactor...

Cybertronian ships

Maybe this bit shows the Dinobots heading to Earth after hearing Prime's distress call. Besides, if Galva/Megatron - or even Unicron - is coming to wreak havoc, the Dinobots ain't missing out on that action! Grimlock and co. are gonna come defend their Autobot mates.

Nobody puts Prime in the corner! For a second, I thought Prime was imprisoned, but we've already seen him get blown up, right? So this bit is probably the Dinobots helping to repair, reboot and fix their buddy.

Parachuting 'bot with double gun and cape.

Hmmm, the green is ambiguous here. The colour suggests Slingshot, Acid Storm, or even Slag, many of whom have airborne weapons and accoutrements. Alternatively, he could be the Autobot Crosshairs, as the green matches the Corvette Stingray car on the Transformers 4 set...We'll have to wait and see!

Bumblebee and the Two-Headed Dragon

Is that 'bot helping or attacking Bumblebee? At first I thought it'd be Swoop, but then spotted TWO HEADS, suggesting the double-headed dragon Monsterbot, Doublecross. Doublecross is a pretty minor character, so maybe Age of Extinction will combine different characters into an amalgamated bot.

Optimus Prime riding Grimlock into battle!

This is the moment Transformers fans have been waiting for. It doesn't get more badass than a sword-wielding robot on the back of a Dinobot!

Prime is resuited, rebooted and more in touch with his prehistoric roots. He's been to Dinobot rehab, learned the power of friendship and been rewarded with a destiny type weapon. This is Prime's Sword of Judgement. Did you spot the Sentinel Shield, too?.

All in all, full blown AWESOMENESS.

Here's the whole trailer. You know you wanna watch the whole thing again!
