    When watching the movie, I noticed the Autobots raiding an illegal nuclear production site in Iraq or Iran or something. Before the name of the location flashed on the screen, I had a sudden feeling it was set in the Socialist Democratic Federated Republic of Carbombya, where people swear on the lives of their camels and so forth. I mean, given the number of G1 story references featured in DOTM, it feels like a missed opportunity that Michael Bay didn't include the brilliantly-named Carbombya during the raid scenes.

    Due to the current genocide being committed on Carbombya by Dirka-Dirkastan, it might have been a little insensitive. Too soon.

    Michael Bay doesn't strike me as the type who'd worry about being insensitive.

    insensitive has nothing to do with being honest.
