Transformers: The Last Knight movie costumes on display...

When I first saw this display of Middle Ages costumes from Transformers: The Last Knight I did pause for a minute and think, were there any actual costumes in the movie or was it all CGI? Then I remembered, yes there was a time travel flashback element to the past, and these Saxon warrior costumes look even more impressive and menacing up close and in person.
