Okay, so here's the skinny. Yesterday, word spread that an alleged script for Transformers 4 had leaked and included all manner of classic robot characters like Dinobots, Vector Prime, Unicron, Circuit Breaker and others. However, director Michael Bay himself quickly refuted the report on his website, calling it "completely false" and noting that he and scripter Ehren Kruger are only up to page 70 on their own screenplay.
Then, later in the day, the filmmaker came back with a postscript, adding, "I bet it is something from Hasbro. This time they are not doing a comic book of the movie because we want to keep our story under wraps. It must be their version of a comic themed Transformers story they are creating."
Indeed, that seems a likely possibility. As Blastr points out, considering the sheer number of additional characters, this leaked script would probably be better suited for animation or a comic book arc.
