    1) Were there supposed to be three or four "Dreads"?

    2) I know we know Crankcase, of course. But I recall a Legends/Legion sized SUV that seemed to be one as well, Crowbar, I believe his name was. Was there another one revealed?

    I don't think Crowbar is an SUV. It looks more like a non-descript luxury sedan.

    I was thinking of starting a thread about Crowbar the other day... Do we think he's in the movie? Looks like a great design.

    yea, I'm pretty sure there are only 3. I was on the set in DC when they were filming there, and the scene they were filming only had the 3 SUVs in it. So im thinkin theres just 3.

    Whats also interesting about the scene is that the people on set said they were meeting with someone. I don't know if the dreads were meeting with humans or another decepticon. It was kept quiet. But tanker megs was on set too. So maybe they were meeting with him. Gonna be interesting to see what that scene was when the movie comes out.

    And i don't know anything about the names besides one being named crankcase. Chances are, they won't be named in the movie.

    Cause those images are TFCC exclusives. The confusion that Crowbar is a Dread is because it is color black and it has four eyes. Crowbar's alt mode is some Sedan not a SUV. Its like a generic protoform that chose an altmode. A combo of Blackout and of a Decepticon protoform head.

    Not exactly there are some differences but it does have the insect Con head style of the movies.

    As said its like a protoform that chose a sedan as an alt mode. It does have four eyes hence at first glance a confusion with Crankcase.

    Oh all the Dreads are Crankcase. Much like the Constructicons, Blackout, Bonecrusher having clones. Heck the trailer has a tan colored Dessert Brawl and a Sideways.

    That shot of Blackout is one of my favorite shots from the first movie.

    Out of the few behind-the-scenes photos and vids I've seen, it looks like there's only three.

    I thought there was four.

    Like I remember someone reported there was 2 SUV's and the Bank Truck was spotted somewhere with a bunch of Autobots, so I suspected the Autobots would kill the bank truck and the other two Dreads, while Crankcase and Crowbar take on Ironhide.

    He's a Legends class figure. Unknown if he's a Dread or not.


    People think he is.

    There were a couple of posts on this thred saying Crowbar is not an SUV so he is probably not a Dread.

    So there's Crankcase and Crowbar we have heard so far

    i have sen Crank's toy so i will have a good idea on how he will look like in the movie, cant wait to see them.

    also, is crowbar a sedan? we saw 4 suvs during filming but

    and are the dreads confirmed to have different body designs? not just clones of each other?

    But that's the thing, Crowbar may NOT be one, actually.
