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. 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.
