    When he speaks to the Dinobots in what I am guessing is Cybertronian, he states something like "The Legends are True". I don't think he was speaking about them but to them. What legend? This order of Knights that he is one of? Or perhaps that there captor works for the "creators" of legend?

    I'm guessing he's talking about his new sword or the Dinobots

    I took it as "Yeah, there's one Knight left, and it's me."

    That's kinda what I got from it. Like, "OH Avalon, I am King Arthur Prime, Follow Me, My Knights!"

    I think he was saying "The Legend is true..." to himself, but in Cybertronian so Grimlock would recognize him as friend, not foe.

    Yeah, some knights- he had to beat them into obedience.

    I am assuming Optimus is very old based on Lockdown's condescending talk about him being a knight and a crusader and Optimus clearly recognized the Knight Terminus ship and thought it blasphemous what Lockdown had done to it.

    When he went to free them, Crosshairs said "you have got to be kidding me." It seemed like there was common knowledge between the Autobots on how and what the Dinobots were and I am assuming knowledge that even if they were on the right side were almost to dangerous to free.

    I wish we would have gotten a little more exposition there. I guess we have to wait a couple of years until the next movie. It's to bad they didn't allow a novelization or comic tie-ins.

    Did anyone notice that the Cybertronian that Optimus spoke to the Dinobots was different from that spoken by the Decepticons in the previous films?

    Probably the language of the knights. With them being a order of royalty, they might have spoke different from the common TFs.

    The language of the Primes is basically Latin to modern Autobots and Decepticons.

    My guess the Knights were contemporaries of the Seekers. Oldest of the old on the Autobot side.

    My guess when the Fallen plunged Cybertron on a dark age the Knights kept a young Optimus Prime safe and inducted him in their ranks.

    Some suggested the Knight Terminus was in fact the Sentinel Prime expedition Sam mentioned.

    That really wouldn't surprise me, given how these films go.

    Here I thought you were gonna talk about the end of the movie when Prime actually tells the Dinobots that they're free and that they could go.
