So far Michael Bay is clearing trying to show that Lockdown is a menacing figure that is causes many issues for the Autobots (reason for retrieving the Dinobots). However, in the end I don't think Lockdown will be the main villain. Most of us have seen the battle between Lockdown and OP that has been teased in the TV spots and trailers which is in Chicago (I believe, where ever that factory with the pillars is located). However, Lockdown has not been show in any scenes which are set in Hong Kong. Also, I was watching some of the filming of AOE and the Lambo isn't in the Hong Kong setting either. So this is my theory, Lockdown gets killed by OP in the battle that I described with the pillars after the whole Texas scene and capture of course. Also, Lockdown's army is killed in the Chicago battle. This is where the plot could go a number of different ways... Option 1: Whoever sent Lockdown to Earth sends a more powerful force which is the fleet that is shown in basically every trailer. This fleet is sent down with the "big bad" that is everyone is wondering about and that "big bad" becomes the main villain along with some possible Dinobots and the man made TFs. Option 2: After the Texas scene Galvatron is taken in by Lockdown to be used as a solider and becomes Lockdown's right hand man. (Galvatron has his own thoughts; not control by humans anymore) After Lockdown's death, Galvatron learns how to control the other man made TFs and becomes the main villain for the Hong Kong battle and possible movies to come using the man mades as his army. Maybe some plots that I didn't think of. But what do you guys think?
