"The Last Knight" is confirmed to feature the Cybertronian Knights faction with two confirmed members at least.
Whether they are the heroes or villains I don't know, traditionally they are chaotic good to the point where Optimus has to convince them to stop, but given this is Bay who liked to screw with fans on purpose anything can happen.
Continuing my posting about Thundarr, there was an episode of that series in which the characters visited a location named Endor, an episode that premiered a full two years before Return of the Jedi. I wonder if there is any connection, there?
Kong Skull Island commercial has has a great quote:
"We came looking for a dragon"
They're looking for Godzilla but they found an ape instead. Interesting that mankind both Western and Eastern just decree that Godzilla is a "Dragon". Like that is amazingly what all cultures view as the pinnacle of power like we all saw something that made every culture believe them to be power incarnate
I recently decided to watch Thundarr the Barbarian, because it is often regarded as a classic series from the 1980's and your avatar references it; I have currently seen the first five episode, and I am enjoying it, thus far. By today's standards, it is definitely somewhat campy, but it was much more serious than anything else that Hanna-Barbera had produced prior to it.
