    Rattrap was actually loyal to his Primal. When it came to searching for Prime in AOE, Hound had to threaten him at gunpoint. Crosshairs cares about himself basically.

    True, I'd forgotten about that among the lines like "You just wanna die for the guy." He looks like he's developed further as of TLK, getting in Bumblebee's face about how Bee will never be Optimus Prime.

    He's a jackass for sure, but as said, he's Rattrap in that he'll do the right thing, but bitch and moan most of the way. And he's a lovable jackass too. He does have some softer moments, too. Being utterly stony faced when watching Leadfoot's death, being solemn and present for Cade's call to Tessa. And also growing to love Optimus.

    Probably my favorite character introduced from AOE. We need a solo movie of him. Would be awesome especially if they found a way to make it seem like she was a wrecker once, which would partially explain his asshole-Like vibe.

    I'd like him so much more if he actually did anything. Sure he has lines, but they're all very canned and not particularly nuanced in any way.

    Hehe..that's an awesome kid right there.There were also some creatures that look like white dogs/wolfs with big ears/horns close to the end of the trailer so we'll see.Either way I'm more excited about this movie than I was for Episode VII or Rogue One.

    This.

    The guy is almost completely motivated by how he can benefit from a situation, but he's not so bad as to not be capable of doing good things. He'll openly talk about how he'd love for his own allies to be dead, so he doesn't have to take any orders, but he can do good things by his own choice, too, like rescuing Bee and the humans.

    Crosshairs and company are undoubtedly the best group of Autobots we've seen in the movies in my mind. It's too bad The Last Knight lessened their focus a bit compared to the previous movie, because they're definitely one of my top 3 groups of robot protagonists in any Transformers fiction. Also, far from being just jerks, the characters and personalities of the five main Age of Extinction Autobots are quite distinct from each other. I found their banter and fights and interactions extremely entertaining, and I wish we got to see much more of that in The Last Knight than we did.

    I can understand some fans not wanting Autobots to be portrayed like that, but I really enjoyed that they were all somewhat cynical or misanthropic or dysfunctional to varying degrees. I found them all incredibly relatable for various reasons.

    Ahhh, Crossy is a sarcastic badass. I'd LOVE to see him team up with Sideswipe, Dino, Roadbuster, Topspin, Drift and a newly arrived Sunny and Smokey.

    I also now get why they had to kill Leadfoot. DiMaggio used the same voice with him, as he does with Crosshairs.

    Watch AOE and TLK

    My favorite scene with him was when Cogman kicked his ass by merely breaking his fingers

    I think it's just a front on Cogman's part. Just watch him say to Izzy, about Hound: "Yeah, he's a chunky Autobot". Pay attention to Crosshairs' expression, he is teasing his comrade, but all in good natured fun.

    Proud to say, I've boycotted seeing any SW trailers, this year ... :-D Laughing at all the folks, who think I am a bit out there for that, because I am, haha!
