Dreads Return For Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction?

Transformers-4-Age-of-Extiction--Chevrolet-Suburban-Decepticon-Dread-In-action
We all remember the Decepticon Dreads from the epic Dark Of The Moon Highway Chase. And, it seems as though they are back for Transformers 4.

Set photos from Transformers: Age Of Extinction show the Dread vehicle mode; a Chevrolet Suburban driving along with the Pagani and the Freightliner. Other photos show the vehicle being unloaded and stored.

We have no info on whether the Dreads will return, another robot altogether or a whether this is a human vehicle. However, the vehicle seems to have tinted windows; which is usually considered as a distinguished mark for being a Cybertronian in disguise. Stay tuned with TFW2005 for more info.

Check out the images, after the jump.

That guy doesn't have dreads. He's clean shaven, yo

^Lul.

I doubt it but it would be nice to see somebody resembling them (who can speak) enter the fray too.

LMFAO! One serious note they aren't probably the dreads, they are most likely the black SUVs we've seen film in Texas!

They were Cadillacs.

Woah woah, he is not a "black Son Uvva Verybadman", he is a respectable man of African decent.
EpicTransformer
they finally repainted Hounds logo lol

You're right that is one of the suburbans used as the dreads. interesting.
QLRformer
Isn't it likely those are some of the SUVs from early on in filming?
Sideways77
It could be a new Dread. Because think about it.

Hatchet: head removed
Crowbar: shot in the face (well, Megatron survived a shot to the head...)
Crankcase: blown up. (Maybe survival)

Those were Cadalliac Escalades.

Nope, all the Texas SUVs were Cadillacs and did not have lift kits. That is a suburban like the Dreads from DOTM.

It'd be interesting if they made the Dreads one of the main footsoldier types of the Decepticon army, as long as each Dread has a different robot mode.

Of course there is the more realistic theory that they will be re-using a Dread model in a battle, and have the vehicle mode on set for that.

well even tho we only seen 3 in the movie, there were more than 3 in the book. In fact, Ironhide kills like 5 of them himself lol.

Not to mention, while filming DOTM, they actually had 4 of these Suburbans on set but only ever used 3 at a time. Maybe Bay was going to uses 4 but time constraints and other editing caused him to only use 3.

Dreads as Cons footsoldiers would be an improvement over the dull looking Protoform Cons from the first trilogy.
Burnout00012
This pleases me... If they are in the film, or at least one.. perhaps we could see a voyager Crankcase? Good god, I'd be in heaven!
Jimmy88
Yeah dudes its for real, just came back from the set and it is for real one of the dreads, its no joke!

I am thinking on a similar matter, must likely this SUV will be a drone of some sort that appears in vehicle mode. That is my guess anyway.
Sideways77
I don't think they'd bring an SUV out just so it can be cannon fodder. I think it's a new Dread. Maybe an ultimate hunter to join or rival Lockdown.
mttyns
Yeah, it'd fit in well with the Rally Fighters and RX's.

That would be cool if it was a new Dread.
Aernaroth
I sure hope not. "Death" is enough of a joke in the bayverse already.
neevnav
I imagine it will just be a foot soldier re-using one of the Dread models. They already have the vehicle and the 3D model so it's an instant cost saver.

Maybe it IS Lockdown: the ultimate Dread.

Eh, I think the Rally Fighter is Lockdown. I mean, it's muscle, compact, and would fit his personality.
davidargile
no no no no, they are dead, deader than a door nail. stop its just circumstance that a similar looking car is in a shot of a picture
Crainy
Well, from what I recall, Michael Bay came up with them and really liked them.. so its possible their are back in a similar way Bonecrusher (who was Bays favorite TF, cause hes awesome) was "back" in ROTF.
tamaboy311
Definetly dreads in the house!!!

Maybe we might get that Deluxe Crowbar or Deluxe Hatchet lol

What if it was a different robot model? We've already seen three Cons transform into the same vehicle, and have entirely different robot modes.

If it's a new dread who's a different character, that would be fine with me, but at that point why bother tying it back to the dreads in dotm in the first place as opposed to a completely original character?
iceburn9
I really hope not. They were my second most hated characters after the Wreckers, and I would rather see something else.

If anything, they seemed too beastlike and organic for my liking.

Maybe because like in the book, there were more than just 3 dreads. For all me know, there could beamy more. Their only likeness is they all or at least most of them took on the SUV look but all have unique robot looks. I'd be ok with a new Dread with a different robot look. I'm just glad to be seeing more of the Pagani lol.
Minh'T
Reused model again? wut the heck? Or maybe crankcase and Crowbar survied

There's tons of possible explanations or reasons, but they all ring kind of hollow to me, compared to going in a new direction. The dreads were pretty neat, but that's the thing: they WERE. There's no sense trying to capture the same idea by tacking on another member after the fact, in my eyes. It just wouldn't be likely to have the depth or nuance you'd need for something like that, given how characterization and the Decepticons has been handled up until now.

I'd rather not see a random re-used model in the movie.

Hmm... Makes you wonder if the pagani and freightliner may be cons after all. Or Could the dread be an autobot this time? Just something to speculate about

This doesn't look like a chase at all. I hope Pagani is a con, and so as Lambo.
Starscreamer95
Glad we're getting some diversity in the Cons colours again.

we dont know for sure who there are cons if any at all guys. We just cant tell. Now if someone has video of this scene, that would be a different story.

One thing I do want to point out is, besides seeing the freight liner in scenes with OP, we have only ever see it with 2 other known TFs. And that is with the Lambo and now here with the Pagani.

i dont think its Crankcase or Crowbar but if one of them had survived it would be Crowbar. Crowbar was only shot in the side of the face by Ironhide and went down but dont know if he died. Crankcase had a bomb stuck in his face and blew up lol.

I dont think its either tho. But it could be a new TF that just happened to use the same Alt mode. Doesnt mean it will be a reused model, just that it has the same outside look. Besides, we are getting the Garbage truck Con back so why not.

Not EVERY TF or Con for that matte has to be a new design.
Jazzfan0217
It's a possibility...I guess. I'd like them to return, maybe they could actually do more this time and form actual words than from what they did in TF3. Did they even talk then? All I heard was a bunch of noises that could hardly be translated into speech.
EpicTransformer
well since this is a 'chase from hell'
Dreads sure do like to chase things
Jakest123
If it's driving along with two - what we assume to be - 'bots,' then I think it'd be cool if they had captured it and were escorting it back to the other bots.
Timesynch
Neat. I liked the Dreads in DOTM and thought they should have had more screen time and character development, and was a bit disappointed they ended up as mere cannon fodder (even if their deaths made Sideswipe and Ironhide very badass in the ensuing fight). Hope they do return since I liked the Dread toys we got in the last movie toy line. Maybe they can give us a Deluxe Crowbar and Hatchet to go with Crankcase.

Maybe they're like similar to the Seekers. Only with Cars.

Noooooooooooooooo!! Fuck! The Dreads sucked so bad! They looked like shit! They looked like carbon copies of the Predator...ugh. So uncreative and forgettable. Dammit...

And why does EVERY transformer that is killed off, come back for the next movies???????? Oh wait, Jazz...okay so one didn't come back.

You are forgetting The Fallen, Jetfire, Brawl, Barricade, Frenzy, Scorpinok, Blackout/Grindor, Shockwave, Bonecrusher, Laserbeak, Ravage, the real Constructicons, Demolisher, Sideways, Arcee, Que, Ironhide, Soundwave, and Starscream.

Looking like the Predator is a bad thing?
