    This vid is straight from another thread.
    First TF: TLK Featurettte From JoBlo!
    It's a video about the dog. However, we see the old WW1 tank move. Treads are moving.

    I would have thought that the old tanks were relics, and incapable of movement. However, this one moves.
    AT the end of the clip, we see the treads move. And, I believe it's a part of the scene.

    So, do we have ourselves another Cybertronian character? I hope so. I love these old WW1 tank designs, and would dig a toy of it.

    I told you guys I think there is a theme with all the old vehicles we have seen. The old Mercedies trash truck, the older cars in Cuba, the B-17 bomber that Cade was seen with, this tank and the old military jeep. The JoBlo leak said there would be TFs with English origins too. That Tank could be one.

    I have a feeling that Sir Anthony's character is using his castle as some kind of hiding place for Transformers and that old tank and possibly Cogman are some of the Cybertronians seeking refuge there.

    Could that "tank" be acting as a 'protector' of Hopkin's character?

    These could also be "Seekers" too.

    Well IF Hopkins turns out to be "the creator" or even an immortal Merlin who has lived though time, these old vehicles could all be Seekers and if he's that important, they would follow him. Cogman and even the McLaren that we seen him in, could be part of his TFs that protect him.

    With how old those vehicles, it's more of a retirement house. :lol

    I think also that Hopkins might be Laura's character's father and that could be what leads them to him and his hidden bots. Or he's Merlin and has been hiding these bots since the middle ages and just doesn't age.

    That was a nice video, gave me feels.

    And I'm guessing that tank is definitely a Transformer.

    Given their age my first thought was "Seekers!". So yeah I agree. ;D

    Nursing home for old TFs is a cute idea. But I doubt it'll transform

    Could just be some sort of in-film show, or event that Hopkin's character attends, but if it is part of his personal guard and/or is a Seeker, that would be awesome. I think I'd prefer it to be a Seeker, to tie into the previously established history of TF on Earth.

    If he's Merlin, then it's Cybertronian tech that gives him his abilities and denies his aging.

    Maybe it's a ring...

    Sounds like one step closer to my dream of a Transformers/Lord of the Rings crossover!

    That'd be really cool, and a nice change from all humans either being evil assholes or gormless normies who only become convinced after harrowing adventures.

    Y'know, like a non-idiot real kinda person who clearly sees these things as intelligent creatures and not props.

    I love the idea with all this speculation. I love the idea that Sir Hopkins is a kindly old man living in a castle, taking walks with his dog, and keeping old Transformers safe. A great change of pace from generic evil humans or generic good military guys.

    Although I would love to see those vehicles transform, I don't think the budget would allow so many transformers.
    The biggest robot scene I've seen was in ROTF opening scene so The the Fallen, but they were all at a distance mostly.
    I don't know who's keeping count but there's over 10 transformers now.

    I dunno, AOE had a lot of generics running around. Some of them all new designs.

    I too have a feeling that we may see a bunch of Seeker Bots and Cons in this movie. . .Maybe the castle is one of many places where they've been laying low. . .
