    I just love this line from LD. But one thing that puzzles me is it's meaning. In context, it sounds like he thinks Prime thinks of himself as a big shot or something. I actually think he could be referring to Prime's coexisting tolerance when it comes to another species(such as us humans).

    Either that, or LD is referring to the fact that Cybertronians are foolish for waging war across the universe to different worlds. After all, Bay said that something doesn't like us and cybertronians mixing. Thoughts?

    Makes sense. He is talking to a teenager after all.

    Yeah, that was my assumption! I thought he's probably talking to Li Bing Bing, after that bit of storyboard we peeked a while back!

    It's what I like about the line because there was such a struggle to get humans to figure out the universe didn't revolve around the Earth.

    I was actually thinking about this earlier today.

    It doesn't seem to make sense, because I don't see Optimus as arrogant. Maybe he's talking to the humans. Other than that, as cool of a line as it is, once the excitement of hearing Lockdown speak wears off, the quote lacks without context.

    Still, Lockdown's voice is awesome :D

    It could be the fact that Prime (and his team) have been responsible for so many deaths and genocidal acts e.g. AllSpark destroyed - all on one planet out of millions out there.

    That could be the underlying tone, Prime has altered the direction of all Cybertronians forever and now he has a hit on him and those he protects.

    On a side note, if Lockdown is a bounty hunter firstly - what is his currency? and secondly - a whole planet is one hell of a bounty.

    Probably when he has her up against the car. Remember that picture of Bay holding a green claw-thing at Nicola?

    I thought he said "So you think you're the savior of the universe"
    and that he was saying it to Prime

    Yeah, I think it's to the humans.

    It's also possible that he's talking to Optimus and referencing whomever he works for.

    I'm really excited to learn what his deal is. We're either looking at a G2-style Decepticon Empire established somewhere else in the Galaxy, the Quints, or Unicron.

    I really hope it's not Unicron, though Nightship is SO very Unicron-esque. I'd be happy with Quints or new Decepticon empire though. Very happy.

    As long as they don't fuck it all up by bringing back Megatron and putting him in charge AGAIN. I'm cool with Galvatron gaining sentience and having some of Megatron's memories left in him...as long as he's really fucked up and mentally unsound from being destroyed and torn apart.

    that's what i was thinking..

    or perhaps he is talking to prime, and that prime has been so consumed by the war with the decepticons that he hasn't been paying attention to other things that are happening throughout the universe.. though, him talking to/about humans seems more plausible.

    Maybe cybertron was part of the hub and now with it destroyed it has a loss of balance with in it and lockdown is sent here to retrieve the key and the cyber forming device so that they can replace cybertron.....possibly with earth
