    Ok so my last thread about the dragon apparently confused some viewers, and it was littered with arguments unrelated to the topic so I remade it. Anyway, who or what do you think that 3 headed dragon is? Thanks to @Galvatross and @tonyformer it is clear that it could possible three things (and possibly more but these three, counting mine, make the most sense to me).

    1. The Knight Ship:
    The Knight Ship could be the alt mode of this three headed dragon.

    2. Trypticon
    This kinda goes with the first one. Remember that toy of Trypticon that was a redeco of Predacon Scourge? This could probably be it.

    3. Predaking
    Due to the popularity of Transformers Prime Predaking, I also believe this could be Predaking. After all, the ship was huge. The only thing that flaws this idea is that the dragon looks huge.

    So here is some of our speculation, now what's yours?

    My guess is that it's a Creator made guard dog, standing in the way of something Prime wants.

    I think it's something that Lockdown had captured like the Dinobots and that Underwater ship is probably the Knight ship so Cade and Laura Haddock's Character might have been in the Knight ship and woke it up and while they are on the Knight ship they might of also let out the Mini Dinobots from their cages or the Knight ship could be the 3 headed dragon but I think the knight ship would be way too big to be the 3 headed dragon but to me the Knight ship looks like a Scorpion.

    I'm betting it's not a transformer at all - I.E. Shockwave's worm from DOTM.

    I think predaking myself, but it wouldn't be hard for megs to become this creature either, as there is plenty of space between segments so he could in essence just inflate his size.

    Given the popularity of Prime and its ANY Predaking i guess its a big possibility.
    I remember a power ranger kind of show in the middle of the eighties about a guy who had a ship that could transform into a dragon.
    The show was the usual power ranger kind of stuff, at the end of the battle the guy would make himself gigantic and fight the monster of the episode on another plane or something, been wanting to see one of the episodes again since a few years but cant find what it could be named anywhere.
    But yeah, it could also be the knights ship.

    Some of those are not mutually exclusive. For instance, it could be both the Knightship and Trypticon.

    Having said that, I suspect it's the Knightship transformed regardless of the name.

    Still hope it's the Knightship, or at least a ship. A spaceship, I mean.

    I think it's just an alien creature Optimus is going to fight on his cosmic journey. I don't think it's anyone, really. By the texture of it's "body" it's clear it's not a typical Cybertronian, if it's Cybertronian at all.

    Sky-Lynx wouldn't be fighting Optimus on a poster. And it doesn't seem as if it has an Earth vehicle as an alt mode.

    Well as I've said, call it a "hunch" but the ship in the water is not The Knight Ship at all. At least it's not the ship that they dive down to, to retrieve an artifact from ;)

    As for you 2 talkin about SkyLynx... I don't think the 3 headed "Beast" is SkyLynx. But even if it was, than it is. Just because SkyLynx was traditionally a good guy in past cartoons, doesn't mean he would have to be in the movie universe right? Look at transformers Prime the cartoon. He wasn't Autobot or Decepticon. He was a Predacon.

    Also, want to point out that in other literature, Trypticon was a TRIPLE CHANGER. If anyone here has read the Transformers Exile book and the others in that series that went along with the war for cybertron games, Trypticon was a space station called Trypticon Station that was in orbit over Cybertron. But it also had a Beast mod (dragon/Dino) mode, whatever you want to call it. And it had its Nemesis Space Craft mode of which it turned into the Decepticon's Nemesis flag ship ;)

    I just know one thing. It definitely has to be a villain.

    Most of us highly doubt it's Sky-Lynx. I'm not saying it couldn't be. It's just the most least likely thing.

    I don't know if we can say for sure Prime IS fighting the Hydra, whoever it might be, and no cybertronians have earth vehicle modes until they've been to earth! ;)

    That isn't answering my question, though. I don't care what most of whoever doubts it is Skylinx. I'm asking why you don't think it is. Your inability to actually back up anything you say with details and support is really kind of annoying at this point. How do you expect to be taken seriously if you can't justify your thoughts?
