    What are these things, anyway?

    They're far too slim, have no kibble and act like robotic drones. Could it be that these are Overcharge drones given to Lockdown by his employers?

    Its very likely they're just dumb drones with no real ability to think for themselves.

    they are not drones, he speaks to them. Drones are controlled.
    I think they are the same as Lockdown, just buffed down.

    Your standard Vehicons then, there was a whole bunch of them in Transformers Prime recently.

    Vehicons are sentient, but not very intelligent. And follow orders blindly.

    They could even be some other kind of biomechanical alien. The Steeljaws had plenty of organic parts (particularly in the shoulder/chest area, which was just bare skin) so I doubt they were proper Cybertronians, perhaps Lockdown's crew are something not-really-Cybertronian as well?

    Lockdown was probably hired by another species to get a bounty, in return he got a crew?
    Would make sense because I doubt their cybertronian.

    he doesn't seem so much a bounty hunter, more a cleaner.Cleaning up cybertronian mess. His crew is to similar to him, so they are either created after his image, or of the same sort.

    Whatever they are....they're hideous.

    I wished Lockdown's crew consisted of another Cybertronian...perhaps like Axor (since HFTD Axor was a retool of ROTF Lockdown).

    Vehicons are like Clone Troopers of Star Wars. They wear the same body design but each has a personality.

    Whatever those things were, they didn't do a shit when their ship was intruded nor when their boss got killed. They are probably the lousiest henchmen EVER.

    I want to hope they're independent blanks for Lockdown to upload his programming into in case his current body dies in the field. They look generic enough. But really, that's just me wanting to see him in the next movie.

    I think his crew was sentient and not drones

    I thought they could be protoforms.

    I would hate to think that's what protoforms in the movie universe look like. I thought protoforms were what Optimus and his Autobots came to earth as

    They have the same legs and feet as Lockdown, so I assumed they were modified clones. I.e. Lockdown is to his crew what Jango Fett is to the Clone Troopers in Star Wars.

    I agree that they're probably some form of cyborgs. Perhaps they're organic beings that have been upgraded with cybertronian parts that enhance them but also enslave them? I also agree that they were shitty henchmen. In fact, the whole sequence aboard the ship was so poorly done, in part because of how easy it was for the bots and humans to escape.

    I'm down with this idea. Anything to see this badass again! Honestly I'm tired of Megatron, even if he IS Galvatron now. He's already been killed so many damn times, and his design was only really interesting to me in DotM (including Galvatron, which isn't a great design IMO).
