Thats what I dont get. Why are the films using random characters that were made up last year. Lockdown? Really? From TF Animated?
Why dont they use from the bible of iconic characters that have been written in stone and time already.
Theres a whole slew of G1 comics and cartoon characters to use and that must be used first.
Thats what irks me about when ever we get a new Superman or Batman movie they all pretty much stick to the main-roster of characters and they pretty much stay within their iconic looks and appearances. When we get a TF movie we get a mix mash of new made up characters while the while other main characters hold little to no resemblance of their iconic look.
Sorry if this is off topic but Im sorry when I think of the next Transformers movie I dont think of the Lockdown character.

Good question. Who knows.
My feeling is that maybe they wanted to go a different route in terms of mechanics.
WFC mechanics were very tight and clean but then of course there were the infamous glitches that took place and I think High Moon decided to switch up their style of mechanics. So then we got to FOC and the mechanics were very loose and all over the place. At least the Destroyer role was and the Dinobot forms were very slippery.
Not to mention their MP menus and matchmaking system were not the best. You spend half your time starring at loading screens and not knowing if anyone is actually online playing or not. Then you get put into a empty lobby that you never asked to be in or a match thats nearly over and then everyone quits and leaves.
Story aside though (stories have been spectacular), there just hasn't been a decent consistency with the gameplay mechanics and functions and with the glitch debacle maybe Hasbro decided to try to go with manufacturer.
But just my theory.
