    Out of the 3 movies what do you guys thinking was the best Transforming scene?

    I personally think outta TF1 it was one of the two.

    1. StarScreaming swooping in and pounding on Ironhide and Rachet. Then jumping into the Air transforming and getting out of dodge.

    2. The scene where Jazz comes in hot, Transforms and jumps on to Demolisher (Decepticon Punk) and Demolisher transforms and tosses Jazz across the street.


    I Dunno , as I think about it in TF1 Blackout transforming at Qautar was was pretty bad as well.

    So out of the 3 movies what are y'alls favorite Transforming scenes?

    All of the transformation sequences in the first movie were nicely done. I think this is because it was the first movie and a lot of people weren't used to the very involved animation models that ILM produced.

    I can't recall any in ROTF that I really liked, outside of maybe Ironhide and Sideways in Shanghai. Reedman's sequence was also pretty neat. I don't quite know how I feel about Devastator's...2 years after the fact.

    DOTM had a few nice ones, but they were kind of flat in comparison to Movie 1 for whatever reason.

    Speaking of Devastator. Maybe I'm just stupid, but how is it possible if it took Mixmaster , Longhaul , Rampage (I think) and I can't remember the others. But all these guys played a part in completeing devestator. But in the rest of the battle scenes. Mixmaster was destroyed by jet fire. Rampage by Bumble Bee and from what I remember Long haul got shot up by tanks and rocket. How can they be combined but then showed fighting individually?

    Prime parachuting out of the transport plane and transforming as he hits the ground running has to be the best.

    Shortlisted scenes: Starscream transforming from robot to jet and back as he takes on the F-22s in TF1 (that was very smooth and slick); the Constructicons uniting to form Devastator in ROTF; the Autobots revealing themselves to Sam and Mikaela for the first time in TF1.

    You're not stupid. There were multiple Mixmasters, Rampages and Long Hauls.

    Blackout is the only one that really stands out...

    And Megatron's in the desert as well.

    I really like Bumblebee's first transformation from robot to vehicle mode in TF1. Also Ironhide's in Shanghai. Some of the best CGI I have ever seen.

    Yup, that's what he said. I didn't find that line too engaging, though - to me, Jazz is a beatnik hip cat, not a gangsta-rapper.

    THIS pretty much. I really liked the camera panning in the Jazz & Ratchet vs Brawl scene. As Jazz, rolls into action, transforms, slides then jumps onto Brawl ; all the time the camera follows him in one continuous fluid motion.

    It's as if the camera pan enhanced his transformation and vice versa.

    Imo, after the first movie, this kind of screenplay got lost in transplosions.

    Pretty much all of them from the first movie. The standouts from that movie, however, were:

    Blackout's first transformation
    Barricade's first transformation
    Bumblebee's first transformation
    The Autobots' introductory scene
    All of Starscream's transformations
    All of Megatron's transformations
    Optimus Prime's final transformation (where he smashes through the garbage in the alley and then drifts around that corner just after Megatron kills Jazz and Starscream incapacitates Ironhide and Ratchet)

    From the other two-
    Demolishor's transformation
    The Devastator transformation/combination
    Again, all of Megatron's transformations (but only in RotF)
    Bumblebee's transformation at the beginning of RotF (when the appliancebots are rampaging)
    Optimus dropping from the cargo plane
    Both of Jetfire's transformations (hell, Jetfire was one of the best things about the movie)
    Yet again, all of Starscream's transformations (in RotF and DotM)
    Optimus transforming and slamming his fists into the ground in front of Mearing ("We've seen that and this is not it. It's much worse. He's pissed." "YOU LIED TO US!")

    Basically, all the dramatic or kinetic transformations were favorites.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't DOTM show the first Protoform-to-scanned mode "transformation"? In DC, during the Space Bridge invasion, there's a protoform that (quickly) runs, scans, and turns into a police car.

    Most, if not all, of the protoform/scan scenes were implied in the earlier movies. I'd say you're right in that it's the first time we've actually seen a sequence like that happen in the movies where everything is taking place in one shot (protoform, scan, transformation).

    Lots of great ones mentioned so far. Another one I loved was Ironhide smashing into the Dreads and all three transforming...

    The best transformation in my opion is SoundWave where he transforms from vehicle with Sam and Carly in it then grabs Carly in his robot mode and transforms back into his car mode.
