    as u guys may remember during filming there were alot of posters, graffiti and such saying autobots go home, meaning that there was going to be a sort of subplot in where many humans wanted the autobots out of earth, Also there were many posters of the autobots faces with the word "Hope" what happened to those aswell

    only leftover of the autobots go home thing was O'Reilly saying that people would feel without them and the goverment exiling them under request of Sentinel

    but was there going to be a full subplot of it, cause if there wasnt going to be a subplot of the autobots go home, then why would had made those autobots go home and hope things (which were scraped from the final movie of course)

    i think that stuff was just teasing at what would happen in the film. remember how big of an impact darth maul had on star wars: episode 1 merchandise? a huge one!
    remember how much of an impact he had in the film? not much, he killed qui gonn and then got killed himself. big whoop.

    Isn't it obvious? That plot, which could have added an interesting facet to the film, not to mention more depth, got scrapped in favor of more explosions, because explosions are awesome. :rolleyes2

    Explosions are awesome though. They just need something extra and deeper to go with them sometimes. It's when explosions replace the extra and deeper that things tend to be poor. But explosions themselves as a concept of awesome are rock solid.

    I love bacon. Bacon is awesome. But with ketchup and maybe fried egg and chips it's even more awesomer. Bay just didn't care about the ketchup, eggs and chips. And if you're going to make an enjoayable meal you can't just have bacon on its own. At least not all the time.

    I think it was just a concept/plot device that got dropped.

    Why does Bay cut out all good ideas and replace them with unnecessary toilett humour and Sam spazisms?

    Also how much would this have been part of the plot anyways? One Scene, perhaps 2?

    I think they just cut out the idea of the general public hating the Autobots.

    Something I actually can't argue with since that plot point is kind of dumb.

    Dude, I would have loved some District-9-esque viral marketing for DOTM.

    I would just :drool:  in delight to see a city bus drive by with the advert saying "Autobots go home!"

    that was not meant to be a con, it was simply a regular smart car, some dude named TheLastPrime said that the Smart car was a regular car, the twins simply tried to find a place to park themselfs and one of them threw the smart car for park where it was. (that guy gave us lots of info for DOTM and they all turned out right)
