first of all, I apologize for the title, but I really didn´t know what to name this ... overall, I want to share some theories about certain characters with you guys !!! you will find most of them may be in some way connected cogman I believe that cogman, being some form of buttler, may be at least inspired by nickel, the IDW character that has a similar function with the DJD ... more info about nickel here - http://tfwiki.net/wiki/# his headmaster ability could be a reference to nickel´s small stature, and his psychothic personality may even be due to nickel working for bad guys ... but wait ... the knights aren´t evil like the DJD ... right !? well ... even though it was not yet been officially confirmed, I have heard that there are several clues in recent issues of mtmte and lost light that might suggest the knights are not as good as they seem, or may be corrupted somehow (maybe like the cybertronian council in the current RID cartoon) ... a psychotic character based on a kinda-bad character could support this ... plus ... malevolent optimus prime there has also been speculation that optimus might be receiveing some upgrades over time like he did in aoe due to his knight heritage ... maybe even awakening his hypotetical knight form currently locked insinde his psychology ... what if the knights actually being evil and optimus awakening his knight self may be the reason he freaks out and becomes malevolent !? is the dragon vector prime !? adicionally, there has been some speculation that time travel may be involved in the film due to many reasons, one of them being that bumblebee´s camaro car was spotted next to some medieval knights during filming ... this instantly reminds me of vector prime from the cybertron cartoon and you know what !? he kinda looked like a knight in that cartoon ... red mclaren. barricade & rumble !? as you know, a red mclaren has been spotted on the set various times, and there was also a frenzy-looking dude on that wrapping production video we saw some time ago ... that makes me belive that robot may actually be rumble, and he may be working with barricade. something I also thought of but believe less is that the mclaren may be connected to or even be barricade ... in the generation 1 toyline, he was a redish car, and an updated look would fit the character well if he does indeed return with the purpose of appearing in the bumblebee film ... perhaps most likely, he could be a KSI version of barricade, like stinger was an updated version of bee more and different headmasters incoming !? ever wondered why we are getting so many returns of minor but loved characters like simmons and joshua, and we are still on the dark about what they are doing !? what if teh reason they are retuning is to become headmasters, generation 1 nebulan style !? maybe not in the 5th film already, but in the future !? I think all this I spoke about could match up with the word that the writers are borrowing from many continuities ... on this thread, we touched IDW, cybertron and generation 1, and we already know that there will also be tf prime elements in the film ... anyway, please let me know what you think !!!
