Director Michael Bay has been rolling out new character profiles for many of the Autobots and Decepticons that will power up in next year's Transformers: The Last Knight.   Some of these disguised sentient machines have subtle variations or modifications from the last time we saw them on the big screen, and others have major makeovers that you'll either love or hate.  We've already shown you Hot Rod's tricked-out new look last week, and now comes the reveal of the mighty Megatron and Barricade in their latest incarnations.

It's hard for me to peer into the malevolent eyes of Megatron and not see a Hulked-out Ultron in his beefed-up armor and red-eyed gaze. I do dig his humongous cosmic battle ax and wicked arm-mounted cannon, though.  

His faithful sentry Barricade was on the bench for Transformers: Age of Extinction but is back in fine form, hidden as a 2016 Mustang cop cruiser when not deployed in Decepticon mode.

Have a peek at both cool conceptions and tell us if you approve of their ultra-modern makeovers.  


Starring Peter Cullen, Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel,Tyrese Gibson, Jerrod Carmichael and Anthony Hopkins, Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight stomps into theaters on June 23, 2017.
