    What are some of the things/plotholes that you guys feel must be explained in DOTM to have a cohesive transition from ROTF to DOTM?

    The only actual plot hole there is is Jetfire surviving the airstrike. And hes dead so problem solved.

    Or being able to see Egypt from Jordan....minor detail :wink: 

    I actually wathed ROTF last night, and I gotta say, that Forest fight is so full of win I can't even begin to tell you. Man, easily one of the best action sequences out of any I've seen from all 3 movies so far.

    They will have to explain Megan's absence. Would be awkward if they didn't.

    Other than that, not sure.

    I'd hardly call the chest upgrades "plot holes" worth explaining. Just simple design tweaks, like how Bumblebee switched vehicle modes between the 2007 film and ROTF, that no one in the general audience is gonna give a shit about.

    The trailer? It's been mentioned that Wheeljack is the inventor of MechTech, I believe, and he's been upgrading the 'Bots.

    So, MechTech is actually present in the films :confused: , because the only ones that I could expect are OP, Ratchet, Megs and Shockwave

    I would love to hear at least one mention of the characters the autobots have lost; such as the dead components of arcee (or more likely all of her) jetfire's sacrifice etc and to explain why some characters are absent.
    Even just a "we have lost many valuable comrades along the way" line would be enough tomake me happy.

    1. Where's Mikaela?
    2. Where's Jolt?
    3. What happened to Arcee?
    4. What happened to the twins? (If they aren't in the movie)
    5. How did Wheeljack, Mirage, and the Wreckers get to Earth?
    6. Where did Prime's trailer come from?
    7. Why isn't Bumblebee's voice fixed yet?
    8. How did Megatron get his new alt mode?
    9. Is the Matrix the Allspark now!?

    and last but not least...

    10. What the hell happened to Barricade!?

    You're dreaming if you think any of the plot holes will be explained.

    I hope that they explain Sam and Mikaela breaking up between ROTF and DOTM, if only just a brief mention that they did in fact break up.

    1,2,3 - If any kids read comics than they probably know the answer
    4 - Parents will tell them that they don't exist
    5 - Look at Sideswipe
    6 - Probably explained
    7 - His voice is fixed he just doesn't use it, dumbbutt
    8 - Read toy bios or play game
    9, 10 - Did they ever ask about that in ROTF?


    Look here

    Or look at whats new on the boards

    Oh I know about the comics. The average moviegoer, however, does not and might be confused if this stuff isn't addressed.

    I think at the beginning of the movie it's stated that Mikaela broke up with Sam
    I don't think anyone even remembers Jolt or the triplets

    Oh, and why Hamtoro?
