    I really liked them. Was great to finally see them in action. They each had some common design ques amongst them, but at the same time were all unique enough to stand out. Crankcase was badass, his design really looked good in motion. They put up a pretty decent fight, kicked some ass, and were nice and deceptive (as they should be) pulling their weapons after the little ceasefire in the standoff.

    I was kinda underwhelmed by them. I wish they had been more badass

    I thought the dread-scene was a little lame to begin with. Yeah, the freeway chase was awesome, but there was something a little underwhelming about their debut. But the one thing that made the Dread scene awesome was the mexican stand-off. I know it's a cliche, but it was a really funny character moment which was a nice break from all the mindless shooting.

    I liked them, only had one complaint though. I couldn't figure out who was who between Crankcase and Crowbar. Hatchet was easy, knew he was the four-legged one. But had a little difficulty with the other two.

    They were awesome, but definitely underused. I thought we were going to have Barricade x3 with these guys.

    In the one scene they were in I definitely liked them. The highway scene, visually, looked amazing and the Mexican standoff Had me laughing. It seemed so not-Decepticon like yet it worked. My only complaint is that they should have had more screentime...

    Oh my gosh, the Dreads were awesome! Especially Crankcase! I loved the way he sprinted across the highway in a very athletic and parkour-ish way (speaking of which I saw Sam do a bit of, which was awesome!)

    They were awesome, but were in it way too little. They should have been shown a bit more. And what happened to the scenes they filmed with them driving after Megatron?
