History has a funny way of hiding some of its greatest secrets up until the exact moment they need to be known. In the case of Transformers: The Last Knight, the rock 'em-sock 'em franchise has hidden the fact that throughout human history, there have been Transformers to help shape the path of both species together. The most exciting part about this is the fact that even King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table fought alongside robotic counterparts. And with the latest trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight, we have our first look at these agents of change both human and robotic, as you can see in the screenshot below.
As previously noted, the Knights of the Round Table fought alongside several (maybe also 12) robotic warriors in medieval times. These knights have fought through the history of humanity on the side of good. But, as history has taught us, even the best of allies can have periods of disagreement. With the Transformers saga showing an ever growing rift between humanity and its formerly sworn protectors, it's up to Mark Wahlberg's Cade Yeager to restore the balance between the two races. Seeing as he's been named the last knight, he's going to need all the help he can get.
Looking at King Arthur's robotic knights, we can see that their look is basically that of a knight in armor, only on the scale of a full sized Transformer. So whatever army decided to come up against Arthur and his Round Table would not only be fighting 12 of the best warriors that Camelot had to offer, they'd be fighting perhaps as many Transformers on the field of battle. As if that wasn't intimidating enough, we can see that their swords are to scale as well, meaning that they could probably take out 12 men in one single swoop. It's a good thing there are some robotic dragons to throw into the mix of Transformers: The Last Knight's combat, otherwise it'd be a very short movie. Let's take one more look at the Knights in action, swords held high in honor.
Humanity has been an ally to the Transformers once before, and if Cade Yeager succeeds, they will be again. If he fails, then humanity is about to have its ass handed it to him rather effectively. Though with the help of these Transformer knights, we might just survive to see 14 more Transformers films make it to the big screen. For now, we'll have to anticipate the release of Transformers: The Last Knight, which will swing its sword for all to see on June 23rd.
