Dreadbot is a character introduced in the Transformers: The Last Knight movie.
Personality & Character
The monstrous hooligan known as Dreadbot is a tough, destructive thug who's hard to control and even harder to kill. It seems a little weird that he transforms into such a stereotypical symbol of peace and love, but maybe he's just got a sense of humor—check out those Christmas lights.
Incarcerated for a bank robbery after leaving nine dead and the money untouched(likely because the government caught him before he could do anything else). His massive frame slices through walls and defends himself against virtually all known ammunition. Wields a distinctive, Cybertronian firearm that obliterates its target.
Notes & Trivia
- Dreadbot reuses Crowbar's robot-mode model with modifications (like the aforementioned Christmas lights wrapped around his upper right arm).
- Probably related to the above, set reports from the film identified him as "Hooligan", the name found on Crowbar's concept art from Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
- His rusty old Volkswagen Microbus altmode was one of the first vehicles spotted on set.
