    ok so we have all speculated about cogman and his place in the film, however given Bays description of what a headmaster is and the fact it sounds rather violent, it got me thinking....are they part of the autobots or decepticons?? Or are they a species and allegiance all on their own, as quite frankly I'd be a bit wary of having a friend who could rip off my head then take over my body and pretend to be me.

    I also read that some iterations of headmasters have them as being organic or semi organic....could that be the war between flesh and metal that Anthony hopkins refers to in the trailer?? Maybe they're enemies of cybertron and something else is responsible for them being involved in the movie other than being autobot or not....


    Thoughts??

    never have cared for the concept, and i don't think it'll translate to the screen. kinda like the pretender from ROTF.

    If I had to guess, I would say that they're a separate sub-species and neither Autobot or Decepticon.

    It's a toy gimmick Hasbro forced onto them, that I suspect is just going to be present, without explanation. They didn't explain combiners, "Stealth" Force or Pretenders, so I don't see any reason to expect them to explain Headmasters. Sure, the description of the movie version is violent, but that's just the way of things in the Bayverse. Nobody's quite right in the head and the fights are Mortal Kombat levels of brutal.

    I haven't kept up with all the leaks and rumours this time, but it sounds like they might be planning something similar to the TF Animated Headmaster.

    Here's my own concept for how to implement headmasters in the Transformers movie universe from waaay back in 2009:

    www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/a-movieverse-headmaster-idea.276622/

    Some fun ideas came up in the thread from Netkid and Gingerchris.

    Yeah you're right some interesting posts there! Was a good thread and way ahead of the curve too!

    I don't expect them to explain them either but they must have a role, and maybe it is just going to be a supporting one and they're part of cybertrons civilisation or maybe they're something else....there is surprising little information been let out about cogman, the most is the talked about vr experience, but for a lot of people that's not going to be a thing they can experience.
