    Hi!

    Just saw the movie some hours ago and I loved it. I haven't read the novel because I don't know how to get it(live in Sweden), but could someone point out the difference between the movie and the novel. I would like to see the differance between the two.


    Sorry if there is a similair thread somewhere.

    There is a few little differences like Dino was supposed to die instead of Que in the Soundwave scene. Also the biggest difference is the ending. Prime is supposed to kill Sentinel with his rust gun. (i think) Someone correct me if im wrong please.

    No twins in the movie
    Twins perish at the hands of Sentinel in the comic
    Mirage/Dino dies in the comic
    Que/WheelJack lives in the comic
    Megatron lives in the comic
    Sentinel is a little racist in the comic
    There is no nighttime scene in Washington DC.
    Sentinel is killed with his own Cosmic rust gun in the comic instead of Megs shotgun.

    The art style of the comic makes everyone look retarded young:
    Carly is 200% sexier compared to her live-action counterpart.
    Lennox looks like he just graduated highschool.
    Mearing looks like a MILF
    Simmons looks like Che Guevara without the beard.

    Wheeljack/Que falls into the Chicago river and is torn to pieces underwater by multiple Decepticons in the novel rather than being executed like in the movie.

    Ironhide's death was even more gruesome in the novel too.

    Barricade isn't in the novel
    Crankcase is to be run over by Simmon's car in the novel.
    Soundwave was to use Mirage's head like a ventriloquist's dummy in the novel.
