    Does he know how dangerous he can be or does he just know he's a villain, I would rather he learn about Lockdown as he goes, rather than have a previous relationship with him. Your thoughts?.

    I'm pretty sure he doesn't know anything about Lockdown...that's what the trailer seems to have shown anyway.

    Since there's no way to know, I'll wait for the movie.

    I'm hoping the whole thing is a mystery to Optimus. For once, after eons of conflict, he really has no idea who he's up against and why.

    Lockdown used to be an autobot, then was a decepticon, then went on his own way. Lockdown also gained a reputation after he became a bounty hunter so I'm sure Optimus knows a bit about him.

    animated really, but i didnt think about other factors, and universes too... hmm... it all depends on different and favored theories and storylines...

    I don't think Bay is going to follow Animated for this movie, his movies after-all are their own continuity.

    I suspect it's less anything personal and more of 'oh snap this be a famous bounty hunter, kind of know him, heard of him, fuck my life'

    No. That is his Animated past, this is the movie universe.

    If Lockdown has a big enough reputation, I'm sure Optimus would know of him.

    well, he has certainly drawn from G1 episode plots for the movies, why wouldn't this be any different?.. i mean, lockdown retains quite a few traits he had in animated. you never know, hasbro could've had bay watch a few episodes about lockdown.

    others have speculated that he's not actually saying that to lockdown. personally, i have no idea, i would think that he is, but you never know.

    i hope prime has at least heard stories about lockdown.

    Well, given that his ship seems to be the size of a major metropolitan city, I'd imagine Lockdown has a pretty sizable rep. Why do you think he's so pretty? Publicity, my homie.

    I'd like scenes before Lockdown ever shows up, where he's hyped up just by how people discuss him. They hear the name Lockdown, and an Autobot tells a human what a legend he is. That he's a brutal killer, an efficient soldier, and not one to be fucked with. Then that scene at the Yeager farm happens, and he just kills everything without even looking like he's breaking a sweat. That'd be cool.

    the ship looks more like the size of a a few city blocks rather than a city.

    but i agree to a certain extent.. but i don't think that'll happen, i don't think prime knows lockdown is coming until he actually sees him. so, i doubt there will be any conversation with any humans about him.

    "Yeah, sure he knows me chief. That fruity little bastard. We use to shoe each other in the skid plates in the old days. I could run circles around that little scraplet licker, I was the best."

    I like the ideal better of Optimus not knowing anything about Lockdown except for maybe knowiing about his reputation if that at all. I think its gone make the story so much better for Optimus to finally have a threat he has no history with.

    From the little we saw of him in the Trailer Lockdown is gone be what i originally imagined and hoped Shockwave was gone be in DOTM

    He knows who he is, whether or not he knows anything else remains to be seen.

    In the trailer you hear him saying, "Who sent you here...?"
