    Remember when DOTM teasers were flying everywhere- from youtube filming scenes- to the super bowl trailer, and rumors were spreading like crazy. When the superbowl trailer appeared, we believed at first that Optimus's jetpack was actually an aerialbot, one of a race of flying autobots. Although sadly this didn't come true and they were no where to be found, at some point we all thought the final battle of the movie, which was said to be nothing but robot heavy, piss your pants action, would end up like the scenes seen in the Avengers trailer:

    Marvel Avengers Assemble (2012) Watch the Official trailer | HD - YouTube

    I say that for tf4, Bay should acknowledge that we need this kind of epicness right here, even if it's just the trailer, the scenes in this movie are at least focusing on the actual heroes, not some regular normal humans fleeing and just so happening to be killing the impossible-to-kill enemies along the way :redface2:  that seriously got on my nerves with DOTM, espcecially being told that chicago would be left up to the bots. So this is what I imagined: the majority of the time, it would be robots vs robots with little military/ human effort. Instead, we got the other way around. And the "optimus vs sentinel" was too last minute in the final hour to even make up for half of it.

    joss whedon is good at establishing story with no budget(see dr. horrible's sing along blog). bay isn't good at establishing story with a HUGE budget(see transformers: Revenge of the Fallen).

    I don't think I ever heard that. Not once.

    I remember it being parts of Jetfire or Jetfire brought back to life were tossed around once or twice.

    Are we talking about a different Revenge of the Fallen? Michael Bay makes entire movies on budgets that wouldn't even cover catering for other movies of similar caliber.

    Can't say I'd ever heard this at the time, either. I think we all assumed it was either recycled Jetfire parts or something to do with the trailer.

    Yeah, I definitely don't remember anyone thinking that Optimus' jetpack armor was an Aerialbot. I do remember, however, the rumours floating around that Aerialbots might be featured in both RotF ("OMG! Shooting at the Aircraft Boneyard? Aerialbots! Calling it now!") and then DotM ("James Avery is voicing Silverbolt? That means that there's all of the Aerialbots! And Superion! Totally!").

    Aerialbot? "We?" What are you on?

    I definitely thought it was maybe Jetfire's parts, or maybe Minicons who transformed from a jet pack to his guns, but never heard your claim that "we" thought it was an Aerialbot.

    And IMO you're off your rocker if you didn't get your huge serving of robot-robot mashing. Optimus Vs Sentinel. Sentinel vs the Autobots. The Wreckers Vs Cloverfield. The Wreckers, Ratchet and Bumblebee going to "RIP DAT PILLAH DOOOOOOWN!!!". Optimus fighting the Driller. Wreckers Vs Shockwave. Ratchet, Sideswipe, Dino, and Bumblebee storming the Decepticons and Shockwave after NEST opened fire. Optimus' mile long badass rampage and killing Shockwave. The Autobots and NEST charging the Pillar and going to aid Optimus, with Dino pulling off an Assasin's Creed-style assassination, Ratchet sniping Decepticons, and Sideswipe covering the rear. Bumblebee killing Soundwave. Brains and Wheelie commandeering the Mothership. Optimus Vs Sentinel and Megatron. The Wreckers killing that pilot.

    Yep, there was no Autobot-Decepticon fighting. The humans totally did all the work.

    Let me answer your question. No. If some people did it was literally like, just him.

    I am going to take a quote that I said to Chopperface once - and that he currently has as his signature - because it totally applies here once again. Ahem...

    "Chopperface once again reminds us that there are some reasonable, logical people out there. Bravo, good sir. Bravo. *Orsonclap.gif*"

    *raises hand*

    Yeah... I also never once thought that the jetpack was an Aerialbot or even saw that mentioned as a possible thing.

    I'm sure the same people that thought that the Optimus Prime shaped thing with wings was anything but Optimus with a jetpack (again) are the same ones who thought Demolishor was Devastator in the RotF teaser, based solely on the fact that he was "big".

    Exept these characters are used with human actors, they arent fully cgi, which is what keeps the bots from getting character development.
