    What if they do what they did with Shockwave to Lockdown/galvatron/dinobots? Tease bits of them in trailers and then have them have barely have any screen time?

    how many times will this same thread be reinvented?

    shockwave wasn't the main villain in the movie.. lockdown is clearly the main villain in this movie, and his ship is integral to the next movie(s).

    the dinobots on the other hand may not get too much screen time.. but they're probably important to what's going to happen at the end. which, i don't think is like shockwave at all.

    the dinobots are being built up because it's the first time they've been in a live action movie. shockwave was basically just another cybertronian decepticon who didn't really play a part in the plot other than destroying stuff.

    Shockwave was intended as a red herring to hide the Sentinel twist.

    Lockdown might be a red herring to hide a Megatron resurrection.

    Which would explain that cardboard Megatron head on set people spotted so long ago.

    I don't mind a Megatron resurrection, but I do hope Lockdown's still badass and intelligent enough to be a main villain in his own right.

    Michael bay confirmed shockwave as the main decepticon villian, I remeber because I was excited, but notice he added main DECEPTICON villian and since sentinel wasn't technically a decepticon he didn't really lie, still the are showing little glimpses of Galvatron here and there just like what they did to sentinel so I wouldn't put the red herring thing for lockdown completely aside, however we do see prime battling lockdown in an epic 1v1 plus whalberg so maybe lockdown is the main villian

    Maybe because of the fact there is a story that bridges 3 movies planned......for now there is no MAIN VILLAIN as such maybe there is just more variety.

    Three things:

    1. They already did the red herring thing, so why would they do it the very next movie?

    2. Lockdown doesn't have the reputation to be an effective red herring.

    3. He's already appeared more in the trailers alone than Shockwave did in practically all of DOTM.

    We also have to remember, his ship is pretty important, according to Bay, and I think they'll leave Galvatron as the main antagonist for TF5.

    Galvatron and Lockdown better not be the only big brawlers in this one, that's all I ask.

    So was Shockwave. Until the movie actually came out.

    Don't get me wrong. I'd be happy with Lockdown as the main villain.

    I feel if anyone's gonna be the Shockwave of this movie it's gonna be Galvatron. Lockdown's definitely gonna be the big bad.
