    Now I want everyone to know I loved the first movie, imperfections and all. I will love the second installment as well but I couldn't leave this alone it's been kind of eating at me.

    If the story is true about transformer hyrogliphics in the pyramids resembling helicopters and such where did they scan those alt modes from? They would have arrived in cybertronian forms but there clearly wasn't any vehicles to scan in that period. I just don't see how it's possible to have an alt mode of a helicopter if they didn't exist you know? Now this is all dependent on the fact that this is in the script and indeed have these types of vehicles. So tell me what you think, I hope this hasn't been brought up already if so I will delete this with a quickness.

    Its sad how almost any negative opinion (great or small) against the movie must be followed by a disclaimer like your first phrase. Myself included, its come to the point where we have to shield ourselves if we even make a small criticism. The apologists and the rationalizers quickly gang up on anyone who dares to quesiton the movie in any form.

    I think you stepped into a mine field. I've heard rationalizations for everything from how radar can't penetrate cement to the way in which objects enter our atmosphere to even a rationalization for why Ratched transformed differently on separate occastions.

    Your point is valid. But most will either blow it off and say there are such helicopters on Cybertron or simply throw you the line that its a popcorn flick and nothing more.

    First of all where did U saw or heard about hyrogliphics helicopter look alike??? Then, honestly and seriously, I guess it has to be their Cybertronian alt mode and since Megatron was a jet and Soundwave is a satellite I guess an helicopter is possible... But my question is, how the hell will the Autobots and even the Constructicons travel to Egypt??? They cant all itchhike on Jetfires or Starscreams back...

    This is most likely, imo. Also, seeing as we know very little about the plot, I can't see how there would be any known big plot holes yet. Let alone the fact that none of us have seen the movie, and have no idea how well the plot is going to play out yet.

    This too. For all we know the image we saw was just an example, and not something that'll actually be in the movie.

    Why not? We have advanced modes of travel and still use helicopters. A cybertronian helicopter sounds cool, actually. For that matter, how are you sure it's a helicopter?

    I second everyone else. Just wait to WATCH the fucking movie first.

    helicopter create transformers!simple!....


    how they travel to egypt,constructicons was probably already there and have you ever heard of c-17 GLOBEMASTER III or c-5A galaxy?,AUTOBOT will work with the military so it easy to transport cars or trucks.

    and it's possible that more autobots and decepticons will arrived during the battle in egypt

    Chill out guy! it's just a topic for conversation. I'm not bashing the movie that I haven't seen yet, just discussing what I've seen posted here. So relax and save the f bombs for someone else.
