    This is supposed to be the final movie in the Bayverse trilogy, where are all the REAL decepticons?

    In TF 1 we had:
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Blackout
    Scorponok
    Barricade
    Frenzy
    Bonecrusher
    Brawl

    in ROTF we had:
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Grindor
    Scorponok
    The Fallen
    Sideways
    Soundwave
    Ravage
    Reedman
    Scalpel
    Demolishor
    Rampage
    Long Haul
    Scrapper
    Mixmaster
    Devestator
    Army of genericons

    DOTM, from what I've seen, only has:
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave
    Shockwave
    Laserbeak
    Crankcase
    Crowbar(?)
    Hatchet(?)
    Bank Truck Guy (if he's even in the final cut of the film, nothing about him in the adaptations)
    Army of genericons

    TRANS+CRAZY will only be concerned if Barricade somehow shows up as a clone and finally meets his fate. :D 

    As for me, not that all concerned. As long as the main four or five Cons get alot of screentime.

    The movie Decepticon are weakilings whose only purpose is to get slaughter by the autobots and the military to sho off how awesome they are.

    I gave up on them a loooooooong time ago!

    They better do some serious f***king damage this time around!

    For a premise like this I'd much rather have a few named Decepticons and an army of no-name protoforms over an army of individually named 'Cons.

    This, not much else to add really just be nice to have characters instead of canon fodder.

    I'm really hoping for more Decepticons to be shown with DOTM. I can't see Hasbro making recolors of previous characters based off the 'Con fodder Optimus rips through with ease.

    Hopefully Hasbro has more Decepticon toys planned for us which are characters within the film. All I'm looking to see is maybe 2 or 3 more toys made. I know we have DLX Soundwave coming in a later wave, but other than that I'd like to see something.

    Not really. I actually think it could be a good thing. The drones are no doubt present just to be blown away, whereas the named ones are going to do a little more. Nonetheless, the only Decepticons who are going to get any character or lines are Shockwave, Megatron, Soundwave and Starscream. We know that.

    transformers 1 had very phew decepticons, and many consider the first film a much more enjoyable film than the sequel

    I think The Dreads are going to have some character as well, but you're right.

    I'm with this man, except I don't have my hopes too high about his last point.

    There should never have been more than seven robots featured on each side.
