    I hope the headmaster is the robot that can transform into a head to combine with other giant robot body...like in the cartoon..that's what we need to see!

    He's undoubtedly a new character. A psychopathic Autobot butler who is super polite and happens to be a Headmaster? Sounds new in at least some ways.

    From what I heard of Cogman the Headmaster, he puts me in mind of Frenzy from the first film, when he could move his head around.

    I'm predicting he'll be moving around cars/tech and sticking himself in them and modifying them to be bodies for him.

    He should be cool for sure.

    I don't get it. What kind of design or personality is that for an Autobot? I mean, a Butler who is crazy?

    I'm hoping he'll be a bit like Sebastian, the anti-heroic demon butler.

    Why should Autobots not be that? Autobots are a faction, not a set character or personality type.

    I don't get why so many fans want their Autobot casts to be entirely friendly, "Yes, Prime!" buddy cop-type soldiers. A faction that has been at war for centuries or millennia would be full of psychopaths, jerks, selfish pricks, violent brawlers, antisocial loners, and other individuals with "undesirable" traits regardless of how noble their core cause would be. A psychopathic but polite butler is certainly within the possibilities of Autobot characters.

    So he'll be happy to provide high quality service of Butler, Guard Dog, Detective and super powered Assassin but only at the cost of your immortal soul? I like him already!

    Well, we've seen enough of "heroes acting like pricks" and it'd be welcome to see some "decent nice guy" heroes IMO. But I agree with all you said and that works out too.

    Trust me, I like a variety of both good and bad guys myself, but in truth the current crop of Autobots are actually little like each other. None of the living Autobots are pacifists, but Hound and Drift are little alike, and neither is like Drift, Bumblebee, or Optimus. In the case of Hound and Crosshairs I can understand people thinking they're pricks, but Drift, Prime, and even Bee are really not in my opinion.

    I'd love to see Beachcomber or a similar, less violent character myself, but I don't think the stories of the current movies are the best time to insert him into the story.

    To me it's like saying it's a Killer Nun.

    And Butlers, they are suppose to be proper gentlemen. But a Butler who is loco?

    Bay did say that Cogman would be polite. Sounds like he could be a proper gentleman to me.

    And I don't understand the killer nun statement. Are you saying Autobots can't be jerks or killers? Because Autobots have been killing Decepticons and other bad guys since G1. There have been Autobots who were rough around the edges since the brand's early days. Protagonists are going to kill bad guys in wars. Many are going to hurl insults at their enemies. The movies may be more violent than the cartoons, but the cartoons and animated movie still had less graphic equivalents in terms of violence and insults.

    So... he'll be voiced by John Cleese?

    I imagine Cogman as Anthony Hopkins' assistant/bodyguard.
