Hasbro invited press to its 2014 Entertainment Brand Preview for the American International Toy Fair in New York City this weekend, during which time the brand debuted all its toy lines hitting shelves this coming year.
Among the offerings were 'Transformers 4,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Captain America 2' and the animated 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series. We were on hand to snap a ton of pics, and while we already detailed the coming merchandise and promo art for Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' here are some of the other toys we're excited about.
It's a wrap, folks! 'Transformers 4' (officially titled 'Transformers: Age of Extinction') has finished production, director Michael Bay announced today. So when will we be getting our first trailer?

Aside from the numerous photos of the newly designed autobots and decepticons -- the various leaked set videos -- director Michael Bay and team Paramount have yet to reveal any official looks at the new cast ... until now!
If you've ever watched 'Transformers' back in the day, you probably remember the rambunctious Decepticon named Starscream.
