    So I was thinking with the release of images from toy fair and with the deluxe galvatron it shows him having his arm turning into a massive gun. This gotme thinking what if it wasn't lockdown who shoots prime in the trailer.

    I remember a Scene where Optimus was getting chased by the argosy and also getting shot from above as he was racing along a stretch of road as explosions went of around him. This could indicate maybes cyclonus as a plane/helicopter shooting Optimus and that's who is on the floor behind Optimus when he gets shot and it could be galvatron that shoots Optimus instead of lockdown. The lockdown gun face could be a different scene altogether.

    Lockdown could come down looking for tessa and see prime in heap and capture him instead aboard the ship.

    I just think the teaser is not shot in sequence so to speak where we see the argosy, then lockdown transform his head to a gun, shoots Optimus etc because surely Optimus would hear and see lockdown land his ship and be ready for him and not be shoot in the back like his is in the teaser.

    Galvatron is under prime, you can tell the feet are the same as in the car cutter scene, but Cyclonus may be the one shooting at Prime.

    I would laugh so much if Galvatron literally died in that scene LOL.

    Optimus seems to be in the middle of another punch when he gets shot, so it is possible that Galvatron gets away with it. Well, we'll see.

    Just throwing this out there, with the "Galvetron factory set" could that mean that there is a plot about mass producing cons. We see Galvetron laying on the ground, what if it is more "the mold of Galvetron" that the bots are fighting.

    Is it just me, or do the road in pic one differ from the road in pic three (meaning the first is wider)?

    The first two are on a Chevy test track. The last one is a different location. OP, Drift, and Crosshairs probably confront Galvatron at the test track first, then chase him to the country road.

    I think Prime, Crosshairs and Drift arrive just after the car is sliced as you see in the pic of them driving. This is on a large, 4 lane rroad. I then think Prime distracts Galvatron and they both leave with Galvatron chasing prime. This is then where the filming outside of Adrian, MI comes in. In that filming Galvatron is shown to be chasing a Prime with explosions going off around Prime (Galvatron shooting at him). They then fight and Prime is about to kill him and Lockdown arrives and shoots Prime. This scene is on a 2 lane road. Maybe Crosshairs and Drift stayed behind where the car was sliced to help humans or fight some other Cons.

    That's my theory.
