    Just curious, what did everyone think about Cogman from The Last Knight?

    At first when I saw the car on set, I thought it was going to be like a bad ass robot or some British Autobot warrior. Until I heard Psychotic Butler. I thought a fully sized Autobot as a Butler sounded weird, especially when they called him Psychotic. After watching the movie, finding out he was just a small robot that just drove the car. I thought that was a bit of a waste. But the character himself, There were some parts that were dumb. But some parts to me the psychotic butler was just hilarious.

    One of the more tolerable aspects of the film. Also a smart way of keeping a Transformer constantly present and saving a bit more on budget. Just wish they actually showed his headmaster abilities instead of just namedropping it. The part where he was singing was a bit of a buzzkill though.

    That said, anyone who says theres no transformers screentime once the film moves to the U.K, they're kind of wromg because Cogman is always there.

    Pretty much this. He was a lot of fun with some enjoyable moments. Although he also wasn't my favorite Bayverse Transformer either.

    I liked him, all things considered, I'd definitely call him one of the high parts of the film. Every time he was on screen he was a joy. Indeed I wish we had seen him do the whole "headmaster" thing, using those getaway cars as Transtectors, or using Nitro's body like the toys imply.

    I'd be curious if his name will pop up again in other media.

    Too...jokey if that's even possible. Ever since he appeared, he quickly became the most grating thing since the Marvel movie's early attempts to be comedic. He's pretty much the #2 on why the tone is such in disarray in TF5 because Cogman feels the need to have British snark and absurdist humor whenever he appears. And for a guy who had Burton's back for many years, he did a whole lot of running, and driving, beating up on Cade just because, and shot that one missile. On top of that, he was a disappointment in the removal of his rumored Headmaster scene when he takes over a Decepticon. THAT would give him purpose and something at least decent in TLK as to why he's a good companion to Burton as Bumblebee was to Sam and Cade. But nooooo we got British C-3P0 with ninja moves because "GET IT?! THEY DON'T GO TOGETHER!!"

    Honestly, he was one of my lesser-enjoyed aspects of TLK. Don't get me wrong, I like the character, but I thought he got way too much focus, and just wasn't interesting enough for what he was. His style of humor kind of wore thin after a while. He probably got more screentime than most other robots throughout the series. I kind of wish some of that screentime was devoted to Optimus and Quintessa's storyline, or even someone like Canopy, Sqweeks, or Daytrader. Those characters and stories just interested me more.

    He was funny, but did nothing substantial to the plot

    He's one of the only good things about it. He's an absolutely hysterical character. I watched clips of him and couldn't stop laughing.

    I mean, not every character in every story has to be substantial to the story.

    Pointless, waste of time and cringy. I wanted to see more decepticons but all they did was dump more autobots (not even good ones) in the film instead. He would've been a perfect 'resurrected' body for Frenzy.

    I liked him as an character, yeah he was very joke/themed but this doesn't bother me, won't mind he getting the Barricade treatment

    Just though the mix of Buttler, headmaster and anger management more funny than I should have tbh.

    He was awesome; about the only way he could have been awesome was if he deployed his gimmick as originally planned and the movie showed everybody's horrified reaction. I want to see Cogman in future series, piloting a limousine transtector. He could be a combination butler/bodyguard. I feel like this version of him with Hound's arsenal would be even better.

    Funny in it's introduction. Annoying by the the end of the movie.

    Agreed.I mean it even adds into realism because even in real life literally not everyone does something important.

    He was okay, but I wish he did his Headmaster thing.

    Waste of CGI that could've been used for more important and cooler bots. Don't know why they decided to put him into the film because he is useless, also a headmaster that doesn't transform or use its head.
