possible plot point or just lazy :-?


Going off what we saw in the trailer, my theory is Bumblebee was captured by the humans and they used him as a template for the the man-made transformer drones, Stinger being one of the prototypes. In fact, now that I think about it, that could be where the name came from, too.

He's a human-made clone of Bumblebee. Essentially marketed as Bumblebee Mark 2.

So his first time in the city, Slash tried to outdo Takeru Kobayashi and Fonzie?

Probably taken down due to the bus thing being misconstrued as meaning he did it single-handedly (without the aid of any rockers or turtles), as opposed to actually bisecting all 20 in one...swipe?

Anyone else think Stinger fulfilling the official name niche for that color of Bumblebee is going to increase demand for vintage G1 red Bumblebees? I like him just for promoting the idea that Red Bumblebees=/=Cliffjumpers.

Their altmode are different, though.
I know that but aside from the alt-mode and faction (maybe personality?)they don't look that different

Yet giving him an unorthodox hinder is a decent homage to his G1 namesake, who had almost-monster-truck-wheel butt cheeks.

Transformers: Age of Extinction - Further Details on Lockdown

Postby Va'al » Sat Apr 12, 2014 3:04 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
As we've seen yesterday, Entertainment Weekly has had a chat with Michael Bay, getting some interesting information about the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie being the first of a new trilogy (not a reboot - a new installment of three films). What we didn't mention is the fact that Bay also talked more about the still relatively enigmatic character of Lockdown and his ship. Read on below for the details, or head here for the full article!

It’s actually a Transformer who is neither Autobot or Decepticon, a bounty hunter named Lockdown, whose alternate form is a Lamborghini Aventador.

“Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he’s here for one person, one alien, and then he’s out of here," Bay says. “So he doesn’t really want to take sides. The cause and balance of the galaxy is kind of messed up when different species play with different species. And that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers."

[...]

“Lockdown’s ship has a lot of meaning that can go into other movies. There’s a lot of backstory about that ship that’s not laid out here," he says. “You’re going to see a few things where you’re like ‘What is that? And what is that?' And you’re going to see a couple shots like, ‘Wait a minute, who are they?' But we don’t answer those questions."

Holy crap, Bay is thinking like a director instead of a pyrotechnics junkie. He's actually said something that makes me think "Wow, I want to see how this develops!" instead of saying something that makes me think "Yeah, I'll just ignore that and take the movie at face value."

I'm in the same boat. Cautiously optimistic. Who would send a bounty hunter after Optimus Prime (if it's even Optimus that Lockdown is after!)? For all we know, he's after Megatron/Galvatron, or Bumblebee! Maybe that message I sent into space asking for that yellow f**kers head was finally answered!

Or he could be there until the end of the movie where he's killed in a less than two minute fight scene.

I hope Lockdown's ship is Unicron's head. I don't know how Bay could pass up the possibility of a movie Unicron, it could be one of the best scenes in sci-fi if it was made suitably epic!

I dunno, that might be a little too CEREBRAL for Bay. ;)

Maybe Lockdown isn't even there after a Transformer? To quote Bay, "Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he’s here for one person, one alien, and then he’s out of here". To me it sounds like he may be after a human. From the Transformers, and other species, point of view (especially those that haven't been to Earth) wouldn't we be the aliens?

Or am I also giving Bayonnaise too much credit?

Maybe Lockdown was sent to capture Mark Wahlberg's character. Being the only person that can use a Cybertronian weapon, that make him unique.

Nah, If you look at the superbowl trailer you can see a brief clip of Optimus held upside down in Lockdown's ship. Lockdown's probably on the payroll of some Decepticons wanting vengeance on Optimus.

I sincerely hope that the others for who lockdown works arent the Quintessons.

I have always hated them with a passion and I dont miss them. I really would have liked to see them die in the third season after the return of optimus prime, but it didn,t happen.

still, it would be a good surprise... but I would still hate them

I think all of you are giving Bay too much credit. You might want to throw that credit (or scorn) in Ehren Kruger's direction. It's Bay's job to get filled in on the back-story as he goes along since he's the public "face" of the project. He may have had an outline or vague idea but it was Kruger's job to flesh it out, fill in the details and make it work while staying somewhat in continuity with what has come before it in the first 25+ years of lore. Bay has been cranking out other projects in the last few years and hasn't had time to research the price of a pack of toilet paper much less the details of Transformers history like Unicron and the Quintesons.
That having been said, don't be surprised if you do see trinkets like Predator helmets (I'm thinking a pair hanging from the "rear view mirror" like fuzzy dice in a hot rod) or Alien skulls (now I could see one of those making for a cool gear shift handle) or other stuff like that thrown in for shits and giggles inside Lockdowns ship. You see Easter Eggs like those and you can bet that that was Bay's handiwork. And ffs don't respond with the typical "...but a Transformer would crush an Alien skull if it was used as a shifter handle. That's just stupid!" Those were just amusing examples off the top of my head. If anyone bitches about that in all seriousness then they need to be slapped up side the head with 3 feet of limp Cybertronian undercarriage.

I hope it's Unicron. I could care less about Quintessons. I just don't care about them at all.

your all wrong lockdown is working for.........THE GOBOTS!!!!!! After years of being outcasts & shunned by most they are finally getting their revenge. But joking aside what id like to see is another race of transformers that actually looks like normal transformers so that way we can all see that those older design would actual work on the big screen. I hope its not unicron cause it would be a shame to see him turned into something stupid. The quintessons i wouldnt mind since they havent had a major role in the franchise in a while but only if they are done right & not just thrown in half assed.

If your talking about blocky G1 style then no that would never work on the big screen unless this was a minecraft movie.
