The much anticipated Transformers 4 might be dropping in little over a week, but Paramount is already locking the future of the franchise and giving us fans even more to look forward to.

That's right guys, [Transformers 5](movie:1325503) has been officially confirmed for 2016!

The Senior Vice President of Paramount, Edward Ryan, took to the stage at CineEurope - and as well as showing the lucky audience some exclusive footage from Transformers: Age of Extinction - he also revealed Paramount's rollout plans for 2015 and 2016.

While the announcement of another Transformers movie is exciting news in itself, the thing that's getting me really pumped is imagining which epic Transformers we will be seeing in the fifth installment.

With the Dinobots taking center stage in [Transformers: Age of Extinction](movie:206531), which other subgroups could appear, and which badass Autobots and Decepticons could be smashing onto our screens alongside them?

Below is my top list of Transformers I am gagging to see in the upcoming movie and why they would dish up some serious, popcorn-worthy action;

The Insecticons

Faction: Deceptions

This group of insectoid troublemakers are yet to enjoy any screen time, despite their remarkable array of abilities coupled with their individualistic and arrogant attitudes. This swarm of greedy bug-bots have a tentative alliance with the Decepticon forces and are, essentially, to the Decepticons what the Dinobots are to the Autobots.

Their unique abilities include eating both organic and inorganic matter for energy, creating clones of themselves at will, weather control, and cerebral shells - which allow them to take control of other robots.


Hot Rod/ Rodimus

Faction: Autobots

Hot Rod doesn't get a lot of great press. After filling the shoes left by Optimus Prime after his infamous 1986 death (Under the name Rodimus Prime), he just couldn't fill the colossal metal shoes of our favorite leader.

He is, in fact, an intriguing character who goes through a surprising amount of character development though. Hot Rod is young, brash and a bit of a rebel at the beginning of his screen time, but he has repeatedly stepped up to the plate to tackle enemy forces and is probably one of the most significant Autobots to be left out of the Transformers movie franchise. Surely, his time has come?


Six Shot

Faction: Decepticon

Six Shot is one of the most feared Decepticons in the Transformers universe, and some say he could be even more powerful than the leader, Galvatron.

This grade-A badass can transform into a staggering six modes: A flying gun, a carrier, a star cruiser, a tank, a twin gun-wielding robot and finally a winged wolf.

Needless to say, all forms of this Decepticon oppressor are absolutely deadly and standing in his way generally means certain doom.

Oh, and did I mention that death and destruction are the only things that bring this warmonger anything close to joy? Truly a force to be reckoned with.



Faction: He's so big, he don't need no faction!

Okay, I know I already speculated Unicron would appear in Transformers: Age of Extinction, but I'm not feeling too hopeful any more. With a character this huge, surely there would have been some spoilers or teasers a week before the release?

I'm holding out for the destroyer of worlds threatening to gobble the planet into his vast, metallic belly in Transformers 5!
