    It seemed to me there were less driving money shots in DOTM then in the other two. I'm wondering if this is because Skids and Mudflap were filmed in many of them and obviously had to be removed, except for the hanger entry scene where to could (almost) be hidden.

    Think this is true, or do you think maybe they just so plagued with accidents it couldn't be used? We know there was a much better shot of all the Autobots in Washington, but we only get to see a tiny part of it with Prime and Ironhide just in the background.

    Just a random thought.

    Or maybe your general audience doesn't give a damn about cars driving unless its a race, chase, or fight scene

    I guess there weren't many shots like that. But I don't think it was because of Mudflap and Skids' removal from the final film - supposedly the only scenes that they would've had would've just been them being (more) visible at the back of the Autobot convoy arriving in NEST HQ, being among the other Autobots when Optimus and Mearing discussed the Ark and the Space Race, and then eventually getting killed by Sentinel Prime.

    You're confusing the NEST scene with the Sentinel restoration scene.

    Two accidents isn't exactly a "plague."

    I'm fairly certain it was because of the accident involving an extra suffering severe brain damage.

    I think there was a good amount, and even if there were less it could very well be that it was because those shots weren't needed, or that Bay was going for a different style.
