    Do you like the design of it?
    Do you want the dreads to become invisible?
    Who hype up for them?

    The dreadlocks and mouth definitely are reminiscent of the Predators. However I think that the overall design of them is more Insecticon-like.

    No, because it's one thing to use elements of a well-known recognisable design as a starting point to develop an original character, it's another thing to blatantly rip it off.

    Is it just me, or do those dreads look like bandoliers?

    Pred-acons? :) 

    It's going to be hard to come up with a design for something that doesn't remind someone of something else.

    Considering the only thing they have that even resembles a Predator is dreadlocks, it's a pretty big leap to think they might have invisibility powers.

    In b4 they all end up smoking pot, talking in Jamaican accents and blaring reggae on their car stereos.

    Keep in mind that Crankcase is only one of them. They have the same altmodes, but different robot modes.

    i like their appearance, but i think it would be weird if they turned invisible, particularly in an urban human settlement, where anyone can see the cracks on the ground that are left when they walk about

    I wonder what part of a security Suburban transformers into the head/neck/shoulder dreadlocks?

    Intersting. I wonder if they have the same head designs as well.

    Nope. Crowbar's Legend figure had a different head.

    Holy shit, they do.

    I REALLY hope they have guns somewhere on their faces.

    Unless they're ninjas. Or turn invisible in vehicle mode...

    ...Erm, I mean right, yeah.

    Would be cool, though.
