    Hi fellow fans. you might disagree with me, but i, for one, am fine with the humour, the 'throw-ins' (at least ive got the game for breakaway), the lack of combining and the other things people have complained about. This sequel actually seems to keep alot of the things that made the original so fun, and yet theyre introducing some more lore-ish type of seriousness which is just too cool.

    What gripes me is the portrayal of the contructicons. WTH!!!! some of us have wondered and pondered, 'how did mixmaster get from new york to egypt?', 'why is rampage red?', and 'are demolishor and scavenger one and the same?', oh and 'wheres hightower?'.
    Now apparently constructicons are popping up everywhere left right and centre. Such confusion, such lack of uniqueness! I feel a lil short changed...

    Any1 got any good theories to justify this? Coz i know they wont explain the whys and wherefores when i go watch it.

    There are more than 6-7 Constructicons. Case closed.

    Theres at least 10 contructicons and their existence isnt explained in the movie. Acoording to the people who have seen it, there is no explanation provided in the movie.

    I know this is gna give me the sh**s when i see it if theres no explanation and im sure there are others who are of the same opinion.

    They answered Starscream's call, came to earth, and took the form of construction vehicles. Case closed.

    I ain't seen the film yet, (going on Friday) but with regard to your query to the constructi-clones, I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that Soundwave does all the vehicle scanning from space, and gives the alt-modes to the other 'Cons as they enter earths atmosphere. This could explain why there are so many that look the same. (if you've seen the film, correct me if i'm wrong!)

    There is another, more probable reason, however. I don't want to use the word 'lazy', as it obviously takes the CG designers a lot of time and effort to work out how to turn a robot into a vehicle, but this was probably a cost cutting measure that would allow the director to fill the screen with baddies without wasting too many resources.

    But I know what you mean about uniqueness. They could have at least tweaked their head designs or given them different colours.
