Voice Actor: Frank Welker

Galvatron is one of the few Transformers in Extinction that – [BEGIN SPOILERS] doesn’t originate from Cybertron, as he was designed and built by the humans to replace the Autobots as Earth’s protectors [END SPOILERS].  He’s very well armed and has a vicious attitude to match – but with him, there may truly be more than meets the eye.

His alternate form, similar to that of Optimus Prime, is a 2014 Freightliner Argosy cab-over semi-truck.


Stinger (SPOILERS!)

Stinger comes from the same [BEGIN SPOILERS] man-made origins as Galvatron [END SPOILERS]. He’s often considered to be Bumblebee’s rival and isn’t afraid to jump into combat against a Dinobot.

When he isn’t trying to destroy the Autobots, he’s travelling the roads disguised as a 2013 Pagani Huayra.

Lockdown Transformers Age of Extinction1 570x320 Transformers: Age of Extinction Character Guide

Voice Actor: Mark Ryan

Though listed in the “Decepticons” section, Lockdown is technically NOT part of either side in the Transformers war. He is a ruthless intergalactic bounty hunter who has been hired to hunt down and capture one of the Autobots hiding out on Earth. Who hired him and whom he’s hunting are a mystery.

When he isn’t blasting holes in the chests of the Autobots, Lockdown rides the streets as a 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe.


NEXT: Dinobots

  1. Brains doesn’t turn into a laptop, he turns into a RC truck. Look at his form, since when do laptops have tires?
    You do make a good point about one character though: Turning hte almost pacifistic Hound into a multiple gun wielding trigger happy cigar chewing brawler was a bad decision.
    For me the worst 2 parts were Optimus basically fixing himself after they pass that white truck and he scans it when he mentioned less then 10 minutes before he needed to find other autobots to fix him, and at the end when he without any of the extra addons from either his trailer or BlackBird flys off into space. If he could fly, why was he always falling off buildings aand over passes?
    Also wasn’t the pterodactyl Dinobot good enough? why change him to an alien 2 headed and 2 tailed beast and change his name? Wasn’t it Swoop in the comics/toons and now it’s Strafe? And why does grim lock have horns when he’s supposed to be a Trex, not a Dragon?

    • Wheelie is the one who transforms into a RC monster truck, Brains was only seen transforming once in TF3 and into a Laptop, but the tires could indicate that he is a double changer like Drift or changed his alt mode since the last film.

    • I don’t see any wheels and if you look closely you can see a cooling fan in his hips.

    • No Wheelie is the rc truck … Brains (as which we are discussing) is the laptop that find the missing Russian Cosmonauts in the dark of the moon quote he says as tranforming from a laptop to a robot “Hey, I’m smoking over here! Downloading missing Russian cosmonauts. Turns out, the Soviets cancelled a manned mission to the moon. The moon! In 1972. Then two of the cosmonauts went into hiding in America. And I just found them alive!…..”

    • dans le 3 il se transforme en ordi,c est l autre qui se transforme en camion rc

    • Make goood point man

  2. Me Grimlock want see things go boom. Who care bout anything else? Why need to see Cybertron or good story? Me Grimlock smash brain. But me still smarter than most. Derp.

  3. I’m a big fan of Transformers, but I must admit that i am with this fourth part pretty disappointed! First, I do not like in this sequel to the manner in which the new Decepticon transformed! Exactly,the old way of transformation, and that is the only genuine, that it is a classic transformation Transformers (Autobots and Deseptikons) is something unique and something that adorns Transformerse.To one of their main features and it shouldnt be changed…it have to be original transformation!!! Another thing I did not like is the design of Dinobots, especially their design in the form of a robot … too ordinary! Third thing that I do not like is that Michael Bay thrown away from original Dinobots two caracters…Sludge(Apatosaurus) and Snarl(Stegosaur)and instead are inserted makes me Plesosaurus and some predator,why? And I do not understand why Swoop(Pterodactil) got two heads(stupid)?
    Last thing might be a habit with the previous cast … though I love Mark Walberg … I still think that the previous team had more quality actors … from which everyone had a touch of humor and with that they put a film to a higher level!
    Michael Bay…do not change the original story and main staf from the TRANSFORMERS!!!

  4. I like the movie but the cussing in it wasn’t needed

  5. You know the triceratops is actually called spike not slug, as hound says at the end “I’ll ride with you any time spike”

  6. I’m pretty sure crosshairs said that, and drift was riding slug

  7. That description of Galvatron just reminded me how rubbish Age of Extinction was.

  8. Mon prefere c est bumblebee il est archi fort au combat wesh

  9. Dinobot Slug is actually Dinobot Slag and their was never a Dinobot Scorn. The original Dinobots are: Grimlock, Slag, Sludge,Snarl and Swoop.

  10. Why are Autobot badges flavour of the month on bogan hoon cars?
    Why not the other characters?

  11. Bugatti veyron you must be kidding me
