    i have alot of questions that i didnt want to make an individual post for each of them so here they are :) 

    1. Where are Mirage's wheels when he transforms?

    2. Are the twins like officially in the movie in robot mode? Has it been confirmed? I mean its a big rumor but i dont see why the CGI company would waste time rendering them.

    3. Did anyone notice in the Chicago scene that Barricade was like pushing the protoforms around?

    4. is that Superfund truck a robot in disguise? Or is it just a human truck with decepticon symbols on it?

    5. Why didnt Bee punch Soundwave anyways, i mean he was going to kill him regardless if the spaceship didnt crash, so he could of at least tried!

    1. I think two are in his thighs.
    2. Nope, Just Sideswipe. :( 
    3. Yes, of course.
    4. Not sure. Would like to see it as a toy though.
    5. He was surrounded by about a dozen cons. If he tried anything, he would be shot on sight.

    1. They tuck up inside him.

    2. No, they are not.

    3. Yes.

    4. It's probably a Decepticon.

    5. Because it's a movie, and it was all already planned. There really isn't any real answer to that, other than that Michael Bay wanted the scene to be that way.

    1, IDK, We will have a better idea once his toy comes out.
    2, They are 100% seen in car mood but 50% sure they where seen in the far back of the hanger in one shot. Not confirmed but Its likely to be them.
    3, Yes he did, he was bossing them around when he was near Shockwave after the hole execution scene. He also pushes BB to the ground and says "Remember me?"
    4, Yes its a con but we don't see it transform or know what he transforms into. Possibly a toy down the line who knows.
    5, And BB was Probably gonna we just don't know he was just done saying his good bye telling them they gave them a good run then.. Bam! a ship falls out of the sky. Creating a better diversion and opportunity for BB to turn around and fight.

    New question!

    When Dylan is on the phone saying "Yeah, I'm watching him pull up right now..." (speaking of Megatron), who the hell is he talking to?? Did Sentinel ring? :lol 

    Bonus Question:
    If it WAS Sentinel who was on the phone, do you think he has a specific ringtone just for Dylan Gould? Like, The Imperial March from ESB or Louis Prima's Just a Gigalo or something?

    There were other people in cahoots with the Decepticons. You can see that when Dylan reveals his true nature to Sam and Carly.

    Maybe Soundwave, or some of his human underlings who were helping move the Pillars.

    1. When he transforms for the first time, his front wheels seem to slide into his back. His back wheels presumably tuck into the legs.

    2. They aren't in the movie; they got cut out.

    3. Yep.

    4. The truck is a Decepticon, yes.

    5. If Bumblebee had attacked Soundwave, the other 'Cons would have slaughtered him. Either way, he was dead, so it really didn't matter.


    Presumably a human contact, or maybe Soundwave. If it was Sentinel, that'd be amusing :lol 

    Probably not. The less time Sentinel takes to talk to Dylan, the better :lol

    There's no proof the truck is a Decepticon other than the logo. Plenty of fans slap a Decepticon bumper sticker on their car, or paint the symbol on their doors; doesn't mean they're transforming into merciless genocide-bent Decepticons. Considering how pretty much every other Decepticon-themed vehicle transformed into something in the films, and this one didn't, only seen for a moment, it was probably just a truck with the logo on it, since Dylan was working with the Decepticons.

    1. They tuck into his body around his back, and two become his thigh joints. Those "ninja stars" on his legs are actually the spokes of the rims.

    2. Just vehicle mode.

    3. Yes. He seemed to act as Shockwave's second in command.

    4. For all we know, it could have been. The Chevy Truck that transformed and vaporized people in the city had absolutely no vehicle kibble on him after he transformed, so the bank truck could have been similar.

    5. He didn't know the ship was coming. He would have died either way if the ship hadn't fallen.

    Here's a question... in the Africa scene, Soundwave didn't have some of the vehicle characteristics he did for his Mercedes form, such as the Mercedes insignia and the headlights at the hips. However when he enters the scene and reports in, you can clearly see his chest and some other parts of his body moving around, as if he had just transformed. Do you think that he had scanned another vehicle mode prior to his Mercedes form?

    BONUS QUESTION: If he did, do you think it was the same form he had in the god-awful movie video game?

    He still had his Mercedes mode in Africa, but they edited out the finer details of his vehicle form so people wouldn't realise that the robot in Africa and the Mercedes Carly drives is the same guy.

    It could've been his original Cybertronian form after abandoning his alt-mode as a space satellite.

    They go inside him.

    No robot mode was made.

    Obviously.

    Maybe, but it wasn't confirmed. There were several non-protoform generics in the final battle, it could have been him.

    He needed a distraction so he wouldn't be shot on sight by about 15 Decepticons if he so much as twitched.

    here's a question! after Sentinel killed Ironhide, he went to collect the pillars, & we saw him in leaving with them atop his firetruck mode. so.....how did he manage to load those up? coz I didn't see anyone else around that would have willingly helped put them there.

    Same way Bumblebee is able to transform from bot mode to alt mode without needing someone to place Sam inside of him? (or same for Optimus before the ROTF Forest Battle).

    There's a few different fan theories regarding this. Perhaps he ordered some NEST soldiers to load them up? They have a habit of levitating, so maybe he activated them so that they could float into place? Or even he secured them onto his back himself and then transformed?

    We've seen cybertronian tech float in mid-air and attach seemingly effortlessly to the cybertronians, maybe it was something like that.
