    That's odd. From the sounds of things, the footage you saw was slightly different to what I saw. I was at the Dublin, Ireland showing for what it's worth

    In the footage I saw, we didn't see the metal strap being attached to Cade's arm. It's only seen first when Cogman tells Cade why it might be stuck on his arm

    Grimlock was featured, though it was only extended footage of him from the trailers, where he eats and promptly throws up the police cruiser

    Hot Rod did speak. He introduces himself to Laura Haddock's character, who misinterprets what he's saying as "Ut Rud". His French accent is very thick. Don't know if I'd call it stereotypical, but others might. Apparently he acquired it when he came to Earth and now he can't get rid of it

    No, he was not.

    Cool! I'm 100% sure that I didn't saw those things. There must be different versions around.

    One thing about Hot Rod (I also watched the footage) he just likes having a French accent, he can speak normally as well. Can't really remember what his voice was like as he only spoke a few words normally saying "I can't help it" or something like that when Anthony Hopkins character told them that he just likes the accent.

    Once they all entered the castle, Hot Rod kept peaking through the window to check in Vivian, he was enstrusted by her father to protect her. It also appeared to be their first introduction when he "kidnapped" her to bring her to Anthony Hopkins, because when Hot Rod spat her out he was calmly try to approach her and help her but she grabbed a stick or something and started to hit him and telling him to get away from her. He also looked back to Anthony Hopkins and shrugged his shoulders after she didn't want his help.

    Also I'm 99% sure that Megs was holding Starscreams head.

    That's cute. I guess he doesn't reveal the fact that he was her personal vehicle before he changed into the Lambo.

    We first see him when he drives up onto Burton's (Hopkins') property. He transforms very athletically, for lack of a better term. Think Soundwave transforming for the first time in DOTM at Dylan's house. He basically throws Vivian (Haddock) out on to grass. She reacts rather frantically and aggressively to this, so he tries to console her, but gives up after she tumbles down a hill

    He then pokes his head in the window while Burton is introducing Cade and a Vivian to one another, annoying Haddock. Hot Rod introduces himself, and Burton explains that Vivian's father asked Hot Rod to protect her. He then complains about the French accent he can't seem to get rid of

    And that's pretty much it. But from his body language, and the way he responds to things, he seems very true to the original character in all but accent and colour. I think people will definitely be happy enough with him

    Yeah, it was definitely Starscream's head, which was surprisingly in-tact

    I didn't see Megatron holding Starscream's head, but that must have been freaking awesome to see! I only saw Megatron activating his battle mask & that was like the only scene I saw of Megatron.

    Also worth noting, Sqweeks does not say Chihuahua. At least not in the scenes I saw. He just squeaks

    Cade asks Burton if it's "a kidnapping or her first Autobot experience", to which Burton responds "technically both"

    In the footage I saw, he was holding Starscream's head right before activating his battle mask

    Continuity is not consistent here, for example look at Megs head in AOE, its completely fine, despite the fact Optimus shoved an axe on his head

    Any clue on who's voicing Hot Rod??? (Jean Dujardin is the first one to pop up in my head, because of the frickin' IMDb-rumor.)

    Love those cameos in the junkyard ;) 

    Should see many such cameos on both sides. Some cool city fights too.
