    For those who saw DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, did anyone think that the Sentinel robots in the future era strongly resembled and operated like the Reedman drone in ROTF?

    That's a definite no. They look like The Destroyer from the first Thor movie more than anything.

    OP, I'd like to hear why or how you think they resembled and/or operated like Reedman. Because other than appearing in movies I've seen, I don't see any other similarity.

    The Sentinels of the future are designed to look like
    Mystique - due to her DNA being included
    as such they seem more feminine to me from the sleek design to the hips

    I'd say they probably closest resembled the liquid metal terminator in the second terminator film - in their ability to keep going and change their shape morphing their body into knives. However I don't see a Reedman resemblance (Unless I missed a scene where they slide through vents or otherwise by turning into smaller parts of them)

    I can see how you would say that, but, no. Not really.

    Well, both the Sentinels and Reedman are takes on the T-1001 robot: a robotic creature formed from miniature bits.


    Reedman is formed from several different bots, as this clip shows:
    Transformers 2: La venganza de los caídos. Decepticons Ravage y Reed Man - YouTube

    The VFXperts described him as formed from several different razor blades. (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) - Trivia - IMDb)


    The future Sentinels have a more humanoid and fixed form, but he is similarly described as being mostly formed of magnetic plates (X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) - Trivia - IMDb). While they do not shapeshift as they were said to do in the film (
    instead of changing their form in a TF-like manner, they instead shapeshift to develop and use new mutant powers
    ), their overall design/mechanics could be said to resemble the Reedman, as the image below shows:
    http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140505013132/marvelmovies/images/8/8a/Sentinel_MK.5.jpg


    ... or perhaps I'm the only one who could see it.

    No, you can't see it either, you're imagining things. Apart from the vague connection of being made of metal and being made of constituent parts, they have literally nothing in common, either visually or conceptually.
