    Could it be Optimus Primes spark? Did Attinger hire him? What is he paying him with?

    Ok?

    Ya...Its pretty obvious he's after OP. But why extinction. That means EVERYTHING/EVERYONE. SO for shits n' giggles lets say. a Unicron-like person is his master and Lockdowns here to pillage or get a trophy (OP, OP's spark) before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

    perhaps lockdown gets attinger to help him since they're both after the same thing.. but what attinger doesn't know is that whoever sent lockdown is also hell bent on the planets destruction.

    Decepticons. Any Decepticons that may have survived, ROTF or DOTM may have placed the bounty in remembrance of Megatron. :)

    his bounty is optimus prime, and he was hired by the decepticons.

    this has been confirmed. go look at some leaked videos and character bios.

    Not Optimus.

    Lockdown would not waste his time torturing Optimus if he was the bounty.

    I'm probably in the minority of this. But I'm guessing Drift.
    *Looks at the IDW comic.*

    Optimus may still be the bounty though.

    I'm far more curious to know what the fuck he's being compensated with because it isn't hookers and blow. So does he get some kind of currency for a hitherto unseen galactic economy or hard goods like ore and energy resources?

    Going with this theory;
    His bounty is for Optimus - he works with the humans (Who end up using Galvatron as a means of pretending that they are Transformers) to help locate Optimus. He was hired by either the Quintessons Or Unicron in order to get the Matrix out of the picture.

    It's not "BORING", it's logical story progression after what Optimus did in Chicago, destroying the long running Decepticon endgame and cementing the loss of Cybertron.

    He left them leaderless, homeless, and nearly wiped out. So they pool their resources to hire Lockdown and send him to kill/retrieve (perhaps the bounty pays more to keep him alive so that they can get their revenge personally) Optimus Prime.

    Not Tessa. Not Chinese-Actress-With-Hilarious-Last-Name. Not Cade. Not Attinger. Not Tucci. None of the human cast would be a target for Lockdown, because who the hell would hire a gigantic Cybertronian to kill a human? That's like going after a fly with a machine gun.

    And besides, what alien would hold a grudge for a specific human they've never met?

    And why would Lockdown be torturing Optimus instead of his quarry?

    None of these theories make any sense. They're illogical, have goofy explanations, and are extremely fanfic-ey. If you genuinely find them more interesting, then you're just setting yourself up for disappointment.

    You make some good points, but that doesn't mean anything has been confirmed.

    if you can predict a story element its boring.

    To claim that Lockdown's mysterious employer are the bad guys we already know about who have been the bad guys for every film is BORING.

    who is this lurking evil????? the decepticons. oh wow, didn't see that coming in a transformers film.

    it would also make the decepticons pathetic. if your organization or army cant do anything for itself and has to resort to hiring someone else, its time you gave up.
