A load of new ‘bot designs have dropped for the upcoming fifth movie in the Transformers series, The Last Knight.

After the frosty reception of the new Hot Rod design last week (here) we’ll be curious to see what people thing of these, especially Megatron.

Anyway, we’ve listed the new bots below as well as their alt modes where available. Have a look and let us know your thoughts…

We also have a new look at Hound and his new vehicle mode.. it looks like he is now the Autobot medic after Ratchet’s death in the last movie. houndhound truck We also have new looks at Decepticon Barricade – didn’t he die in one of the other movies? Anyway… he used to look like this: barricade original mode Now he looks like this – and we really like his robot form this time out barricadebarricade car mode We also get the return of Crosshairs who was introduced in Age of Extinction:

And finally, we have returning Autobot Drift and newcomer Sqweeks (really) who we saw a while ago and were convinced he was at least inspired by MASK’s T-Bob (here)…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
