    Well, at least in my view, this is where I don't mind artistic liberties being taken and seeing what new things a given iteration's production team can come up with, because... well, there's really nothing special about Ironhide's G1 design. The character hadn't been featured since G1, and his look is nowhere near as memorable as Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, Starscream, Soundwave, etc... he's a boxy red van. That's it. The character was memorable because of his personality. He was a gruff veteran Autobot warrior always itching for a fight.

    So the movie team completely redesigned the character based on that personality. And while he looks nothing like he did 20 years prior (which, again, in my view, unlike characters like Optimus Prime, isn't really a problem), he now has a design that helps better convey the same personality of the character, along with some new distinctive features, like his cannons, which have become an Ironhide staple since.

    I think that freedom to experiment can often lead to new and better things, although I guess as someone who didn't grow up with G1, I don't hold a lot of that as sacred versus those who did. Maybe fans who grew up with G1 do consider Ironhide's design iconic, I just personally do not.

    It's not megatron. Terrorcons are their own separate faction and making megatron behind them as well would be kinda lame.

    That seems convoluted when nightbird is a decepticon traitor turned terrorcon and there are other decepticons in the film. Why hire trophy hunters when you have actual cons on earth.

    I'd be satisfied if he was working for Megs as I think bringing in such a big threat like Unicron so soon is a bit much when this movie is already going to have 5 or so separate factions in play at the same time.

    That'd be terrible on multiple levels.

    It would literally make no sense for Megatron to be the boss of the Terrorcons for reasons that are so obvious I feel as if don’t even need to write them in this post.

    Sorry, but it looks like Megatron and crew are definitely being pushed to the sidelines here and won’t be the main antagonists. We won’t see much of them. But I definitely expect to see some flashback scenes and shit of Cybertron that feature the Decepticons.

    We will see more of them in this upcoming animated film in 2023 that shows the war on Cybertron. And we will probably see them more in Soto’s upcoming film.

    They said the boss would be the big bad of future films

    If they're trophy hunters, why not have them be led by Lockdown?

    Cause Lockdown is in AOE and they're still trying to do that "maybe maybe not" with continuity for the time being.

    A lot of people are saying it's Unicron because there were many strong hints given. We know Unicron will be somehow involved (as mentioned by Protoman). We've been told both the Maximals and Predacons fear the Terracons. And Scourge was created by Unicron in G1.

    He was new in the sense he came after DOTM.

    Even TLK didn't try any asspulls with him and try to place Lockdown back in Earth's past like they did with many other characters like Prime or Hound (another tick on why he was the best Bayverse antagonist).

    Go I hope it's not Unicron.

    Unless they're trying to do something new with him (which has only been done like twice, in Armada and IDW) I'd rather they keep off him until much later.

    I’m just making predictions based off what was actually said. The Terrorcons were described as being the ‘main’ antagonists. Specifically Scourge and Nightbird. Really doubt the Decepticons or Megatron will be playing a major role in this film seeing as how the Terrorcons are getting the spotlight here. And I seriously doubt Megatron is their ‘boss’ given the Unicron rumours and the fact that Steven commented on wanting to have a different villain from the Decepticons.

    Rampant speculation based on hopes and dreams is what we do here, not paying attention to officially released information to inform our arguments

    My random bit of speculation for today is that the Terrorcons are pirates. Scourge is a suitably piratey name.
