Transformers 4 Rumored Character Roster Additions


Joblo has posted an article in which they claim that a “reliable source”(who attended a recent marketing event) has provided them with information on characters to appear in Transformers 4. They did label the information as a “rumor” so take it with a grain of salt. However they also claimed that their source has been reliable in the past….so…onwards to the list!

  • Grimlock
  • Lockdown
  • Hound
  • Galvatron
  • Swoop(implied since apparently Bumblebee will ride on a Pteranadon while Optimus Prime will ride Grimlock)
  • Former “Samurai” Decepticon who wants to regain his honor and become an Autobot(Drift? Bludgeon?)
Since the end of Dark Of The Moon, fans have speculated that Megatron would return as Galvatron in Transformers 4, after all…he IS the almighty Megatron…reformatted. Lockdown might not be too surprising(if this rumor turns out to be true), due to Hasbro pulling cues from Transformers Animated(and Lockdown rose to popularity in that show).

Read on for plot details…be forewarned, if these rumors are the plot details reveal a substantial part of the read at your own risk!

From Joblo:

That’s right, folks, our source has confirmed that TRANSFORMERS 4 will feature none other than the famed Dinobots, including fan favorite Grimlock. No word on whether he’ll retain his neanderthal voice, but one can only hope he does as that’s a true staple of the character. One of the villains of the film will be a character named Lockdown, who has a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the dinobots, which are somehow brought back to life by a captured Optimus Prime. Prime is joined by returning autobot Bumblebee and at one point both characters (and potentially others) will “ride” the Dinobots into battle in Hong Kong (which fits well within the announcement that the film would film partially in China), with Prime on Grimlock and Bumblebee on a Pterandon, presumably Swoop.

    If this turns out to be true that means we will get The Dinobots, Galvatron, Lockdown and a Samurai Decepticon which would obviously be Bludgeon or Drift, while the film most likely will suck I think we can expect amazing robot designs, CGI and action scenes

    Just saw this myself, I like the idea of having the characters turning up. Not sure how I feel about the "ride" bit though.

    I'm guessing Swoop would carry Bumblebee into battle and drop him in it right away, I don't have a big problem for that, but I am a little worried about Prime riding Grimlock, I know Bay isn't good at making films for fans but I don't think even he would make Grimlock a steed in the fil-oh wait this is the guy who ruined Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave in DOTM, I'm still waiting to see, it's probably just rumors, except these ones seem the most plausable we've had so far

    I posted my thread in Transformers Movie Boards but it's also still a rumor so I thought I'd also post it here, according to this we have an idea of who to expect in Transformers 4, read for yourself and share your thoughts

    Which Classic Characters Look Set To Appear In TRANSFORMERS 4?

    If this turns out to be true then not only will we get The Dinobots and Galvatron, but Lockdown and a Samurai Decepticon, who will probably be Bludgeon and Hound.

    I really like the choices, but it all sounds too good to be true.

    I know Bay is against the Dinobots, but I think we may have reached the point where Hasbro says to him "we want THESE characters in the sequels. Make it work or else we will get someone else to do the job."

    Many of the original characters Bay has added in existed only for comic relief and were not well received. Adding to that, many of the big name Transformers characters featured in his films were poorly represented and served no other purpose than to look good standing around and die foolishly.

    Happy about the possible inclusion of the Dinobots, but not sure how i feel about him being Prime's mount.

    Grimlock, no like Pony ride!

    I'm up for some Movie-verse Bludgeon. He'd look great on the big screen.

    Lockdown too.

    I have to agree.

    No sports cars. It MUST be a fake.

    a former "Samurai" Decepticon that wants to regain his honor and become an Autobot.
    Drift? (It'll probably be Mr. Kickass-Killed-a-dinosaur-is-Japanese-and-is-cool-seriously-you-guys rather than Mr. Hippy-Sama.)
