    Gonna see the movie again tomorrow...But something I have been thinking about...


    Being as the bots consider themselves 'Cybertronians' as a race, and Autobots and Decipticons being the subdivisions of that race......they didn't think of themselves as Trans-Formers (obviously because we humans designated them that)....But alas....my point is......

    Prime never said "Autobots Transform and roll out!!"

    He only said "Autobots roll out."

    Kinda bugged me...

    or am I not remembering correctly...I'll find out tomorrow regardless......

    I think its because they were standing on top of like, some skyscraper-dam-building thing. If they Transformed they would fall off and drop like 100 feet in car mode... :p 

    I mean, there was nowhere to DRIVE to, so it made sense in that case.

    You're correct - he said "roll out".

    Not a big change though. I'm glad they gave us even that much.

    You're right, he never said the full line and that bugged me too. I guess it's better than nothing though.

    I guess Prime figured that the Autobots already knew to transform first before rolling out. Otherwise, they'd fall flat on their faces. :D 

    Seriously, it was probably just an oversight.

    Same here, Prime said "roll out" and my inner monologue said "sweet... uh, wait a minute, where's the 'transform'?"

    I think they might have left out "transform" to modernize it a bit. Too geeky perhaps? And as was mentioned, of course they're going to transform before they roll out... duh. It's not like they got rollerblades on.

    Well, they never refer to themselves as "Transformers". In fact, OP say that "Autobot" is short for... something that I don't quite remember. :) 

    Still, dude coulda said the whole line... ;)

    as NIDARAM said, if they transformed there, they would have fallen. nowhere to drive right there.

    I'm sure Prime said "Autobots, Roll out!" on the original cartoon as well.

    It makes sense to me.

    Its like saying "im going to lift the lid and go to the bathroom."

    Taking out transform was only because it is in their nature.

    Optimus Prime doesn't need to remind them how to function

    none the less missing the transform part did feel odd I admit

    It did not bug me ... was cool hearing the 'Roll Out'. There were a number of times, in the G1 cartoon, where he said just 'roll out' instead of the whole line. And like someone mentioned above, the location they were at did not exactly allow for the transforming part of it..... no big

    Prime: "Autobots, transform and roll ouuuuuu---waaaa-hooo-hooo-weeeeeee!" >splat<

    Michael Bay: "Can someone get a winch.... we gotta do that again"
    Jazz: "C'mon Prime, I'm supposed to be the 'bot with the death scene!"
    Ironhide: "Can we hurry this up? I gotta NRA meeting in an hour."
    Ratchet: "5th time today Prime fell down. Getting too old for this!"

    It's corny, but I would have LOVED it if Prime had said "Autobots, transform and roll out!" after his speech at the end of the film.

    that's a british accent?? there are about 20-30 totally different british accents, as different to each other as say new york to texas, and none of them sound anything like that... i think you've been watching too much mary poppins!
