The only thing bigger than the explosions you'll see in "Transformers: Age of Extinction" this weekend, is the array of different Transformers that will appear on screen. 

Before they turn into Transformers, they're just a bunch of really cool, expensive vehicles.
We've broken down how much the cars in the new film cost, ranging from $15,000 to $2.4 million.

Let's start out with the most recognizable vehicle. Here's the estimated $150,000 2015 Western Star 5700.

The 5700 won't hit the market until later this year and the exact pricing is unknown, however its predecessor, the 4900, retails for as much as $150,000 depending on configuration.
It will transform into Autobot leader Optumus Prime


While Optimus Prime opens the film in the form of a rusted out 1973 Marmon cab-over truck, the autobot leader eventually takes the form of an awesome 2015 Western Star 5700-based semi.
We'll see two iterations of the famous Chevy Camaro on screen. This vintage modified '67 Camaro can run up to $60,000.

Even though the autobot scout originally appeared in Transformers canon as a humble VW Bug, Michael Bay's Bumblebee continues to take the form of Chevy's Camaro.

A well maintained version of a '67 Camaro SS can cost as much $60,000.

Both will turn into fan favorite transformer Bumblebee.

The 2014 concept vehicle can run around $74,000.
The Camaro Concept debuted last year at the Las Vegas Sema Show as a specialty concept. There has not been a price set for the car, but a top of the line 2014 Camaro Z/28 retails for $74,000. 


We'll see a lot of new cars joining the sequel this time around. Chevy's Corvette C7 Stingray starts around $60,000.

The Stingray has debuted to worldwide acclaim and is seen as the first modern Corvette that is fully capable of taking on the best Europe has to offer. The base Corvette Stingray retails for around $60,000. 

The corvette will transform into Crosshairs who will also appear as a helicopter in the film.

The most expensive Autobot in the film will turn into a 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

The 1,200 horsepower Vitesse is the world fastest open-top Supercar in 2013 with a top speed of 254 MPH.

Bugatti's ultra-rare sport car will transform into the sword-wielding Samurai Autobot Drift.

The $170,000-$380,000 Oshkosh Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle will appear as a transformer first introduced in 1984.

The all-terrain Medium Tactical Vehicle can be outfitted for a wide variety of missions including serving as a platform for the Hight Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS). According to Aeroweb, the trucks can cost anywhere between $170,000- $380,000 depending on configuration.

While Autobot Hound has appeared as some form of Jeep in the past, he will take on the form of the military vehicle.

The $400,000 2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 will stand in as the film's main villain.

The 700 horsepower, 217 MPH supercar costs nearly half a million.

Decepticon Lockdown appears in the guise of Lamborghini's flagship Aventador LP 700-4.

The exotic 2013 Pagina Huayra costs more than $1 million and will transform into one of the film's villains.

Named after an Andean goddess of wind, the 230 mph Huayra is hand-crafted in Italy and costs an estimated $1.4 million.
