    Admit it: You loved those bastards.
    They had only one scene to shine, but they kicked so much ass! Admit it! You all loved them to death.

    Principally Crankcase and Crowbar mumbling in Cybertronian.
    I wonder what they were saying on the Mexican Standoff scene?

    Admit they were badass on this thread.

    I think they were talking about those things they pulled out from their backs.

    The only thing I don't like about the Dreads is that they weren't in it that much. They are absolutely fantastic and one of my favorite parts of the movie.

    I don't think that would be much useful: Speak Cybertronian to in hope of cloaking your words when you're right in front of two Cybertronians would be like talking Italian in the middle of the Italian Mafia to not reveal your plan.

    In short: Ironhide and Sideswipe also speak Cybertronian.

    Crankcase was probably offending Ironhide's mother, thus why he got such a freaking overkill.

    Anyway, I do think Crowbar could have survived [he just got shot in the face].

    Loved 'em. And I can see spending a lot of money on their toys.

    I liked the one that was more beastly. He really looked like he transformed properly out of the SUV, and ran along on all fours. The one running behind him on two legs looked like if he pumped his legs any faster he'd be a Decepticon version of The Flash.

    Don't worry about their deaths, everything gonna be all right. Just be happy, man.

    I apologize for the terrible use of Bob Marley and Mcfarlane songs as stereotypical representations of a subtle insult directed toward the dreads dreadlocks and therefore Jamaican properties.
    ...

    Get to da chopper.

    I loved those guys so much that I made a fanfic with them as the main villains.

    On that fanfic, they'll get the screen-time they deserved! Oh yeah.

    Their awesome appearance in the movie was a contributor for one of the many splosions I made in my pants.

    Dreads = One word -> AWESOME
    I loved their action though it was short. The Mexican standoff was great.

    True, but unfortunately they needed bad ass robot to waste in an action scene, and they picked the Dreads.

    Seeing the scene with them makes me wish they had better toys. The toy for Crankcase isn't accurate at all.
