    Lockdown's line to Optimus when he was hanging him up in his cell. Is he referring to the Dinobots? Discuss.

    I don't think the dinobots are knights. I think they were just more captures.
    But yes, there are more knights outs there.

    What's a Knight anyways? And does this have anything to do with all the Silver Knight Optimus Prine stuff at Target?

    The Silver Knight Prime was going to be in the movie representing the souls of the fallen Knights that were inside the sword giving OP their power.However it was cut from the movie

    Yes. When OP took the sword, he was supposed to get his Silver knight look and powers. Except that concept was cut from the movie. He did gain the powers though. An the Dinobots are also Knights. Only they are not Silver Knights of the grand order, they are Black Knights (Templars). Probably the elite knights of the Order. I also now believe the Knights of Cybertron in the movies will more or less pan out to be the Cybertronian Royal Guard or (Elite Guard). And knowing that OP trained under Sentinel, I also believe Sentinel was one of the top if not the top of the Knight's Order. And possibly OP has always been a Knight in this Universe and with him being a Prime, he was taken into the Knights Order to better be hidden from The Fallen who was at the time killing off the Prime Lineage.

    Just imagine if Ultra Magnus was also a knight, that would be cool!

    I had neve read anything before seeing the movie, so wow this is all new to me. Especially the silver vs. black knights. When was this originally made known? Certainly nothing in the final film that explained it.

    Can anybody point to a source for this information? I would be interested in reading any interview that discusses deleted scenes. Thanks.

    Well, he tells him he was built, is wanted back, didn't do what he was supposed to and is a knight. So sounds like Optimus and the other knights were some type of special ops group

    THIS^. I wish there was a bit more explanation for the "Legendary Knights" as Prime calls the Dinobots. They just came in as a last minute plot device to turn the tide, and there was no given reason for them to transforming into dinosaurs (or even if they were present during the terraforming the Creators were involved with in the prologue)...unless I missed some important dialogue in the movie?

    Shame on me asking for logic in a Bay movie I guess...

    The dinobots are listed as Black knights in the concept art.

    Ok,so here's a therory: What if the Creators built Optimus and the Dinobots (and presumably the other Knights) to protect Cybertron, as sort of a deal or something. But now that Cybertron is pretty much a dead planet, they want the Knights of Cybertron back, or what's left of them

    Actually I think it was mentioned, or at least implied they took those forms in Earths prehistory. Was the metal T Rex discovered at the arctic dig Grimlock? Maybe a cut scene would have cleared that up?

    nope. still not sure why people think the cyberformed dinosaurs were the Dinobots themselves. Cyberforming does not turn a creature into anything other than a dead creature.
