    Hi, I've been wondering how many designs the knights had. I've been having a hard time distinguishing them and getting clear pictures of the various knights, I reckon there's a lot of shared parts between them, but some of them are distinct, so I was wondering if we could try to identify the number of designs and the amount of knights that use them.

    The first most obvious one would be the red one known as Stormreign

    Steelbane is another design, according to the tfwiki, this one is used by two knights and both use Stormreigns head model. he uses a sword.

    Skullitron has a unique head but I can't tell if his body is a reuse of Steelbanes.

    Draconicus has a face with chainmail over the mouth and one large shoulder pauldron, his design was modified and used as the talisman knight. Two knights use this model.

    There was a knight in merlin's crypt who got stabbed by Optimus who used a axe, so we'll call him Axealot. He appears again afterwards and shares his axe with another knight.

    Execution Knight is the one Cade stopped from killing Optimus, he seems to share his body model with Axealot but he has a different head and uses a sword instead.

    There are two knights who use a round axe, one is pictured here.

    and one that uses a spear, he uses Steelbane's upper body but with a different skirt and axealots head.

    So that's some I've been able to identify of the twelve, apparently the number of knights isn't consistent in the film but it's always around Twelve. Can anyone identify the remaining knights?

    There were quite a few, but none of them were named in the movie.

    I think there were only 5 individual designs and the rest just shared generic looks

    That's not the point of the thread, it's to see how many variations there are of the knights.

    They all share elements.

    If we're not counting outliers like the red knight, Skullitron, and the Talisman knight, I've got five listed, there may be more but I'm having a hard time spotting them.

    I feel like the crashed knight in Chicago, skullitron, and the two that prime kills are not part of "the 12" but are still guardian knights.

    Thanks for making this I was wondering it myself, about the designs, it gets hard to pick them out.

    Also axealot? Lol hurry copyright that before hasbro does! Think I am joking.. one word: Skullitron, if that made the cut well......

    After watching the scene when Red gives Merlin the staff the dragon has already emerged, so Dragonstorm does not require certain knights to combine
