    Opening a bit early for pre-release views.

    Keep it civil. Spoiler tag your spoilers. Don't assume everyone will use spoiler tags.

    Scrapper the construction is in cades junk yard.

    There is a jetfire like plane in burton's castle.

    There is a bot in Cuba that is topspins body with leadfoot's head for some horrible unknown reason.

    In the opening sequence there appeared to be two of junkheaps, robot forms fighting a yellow transformer

    Multiple references to previous Transformers films:

    Transformers
    • Archibald Witwicky is depicted as being a member of the Witwiccan secret society.
    • Sam Witwicky is also depicted, as his "ladiesman217" eBay profile picture.
    Revenge of the Fallen
    • The Pyramid of Giza is briefly shown, still damaged from the Sun Harvester.
    • An Autobot that resembles Scrapper is (very) briefly seen in the junkyard.
    • Jetfire's cane/landing gear is dropped by Daytrader.
    Dark of the Moon
    • The crashed Ark is seen on the Moon (seen in trailers).
    • A strange Frankenstein of Wrecker CGI models (Leadfoot's head on Topspin's body) is seen in Cuba.
    • Starscream's severed head is delivered to Cade's junkyard by Daytrader.
    • An Energon detector is seen in Cade's junkyard.
    Didn't spot any from Age of Extinction, but there are probably more.

    Honestly, too many errors to even bother trying to list.

    The one thing I liked about this movie was seeing megatron acknowledging starscreams old head. That was one of the few cool parts.

    Sam's dorky picture deserves to be mentioned haha. Nice touch

    So the movie implied that Sam is dead. But since Burton died, doesn't that make Vivian the last descendant of the Witwickys?

    The "Witwiccans" weren't descendants of Merlin, were they? I thought they were just a chosen clan to be allied with the Transformers.

    I'm not sure either. It definitely said one way or the other, but I didn't catch which due to the pacing. I'd need to watch it again to confirm. But
    as I understood it, I thought all of the Witwicky lineage came from Merlin. Which includes Archibald, Burton, Vivian, and Sam

    ^ It would have been physically impossible. Plus, I was at Alamo Drafthouse and they would have caned me for whipping out the phone.

    I saw him right before Hot Rod stops time and the three cars make their escape. Him and the WWI tankformer were confronting the TRF.

    While they had a similar wing setup, I don't think that was meant to be Breakaway.

    ^ Breakaway is 100% a non-existent "character" as far as the actual text of the movies, but given that he was designed to be onscreen for movie 2, struck me as a reference. Obviously he would have a different alt mode.

    I mean, one of the most memorable bit guys in this movie was "a generic from movie 4 with Shockwave's exact head." They use all their assets heavily!

    Something semi-unrelated that I notice during the car chase in London: as Cogman was driving and Burton was in the passenger seat, Burton shot the bird towards one of the other motorists. Not something you would expect from an English lord.

    Near the end, when Optimus Prime is walking with all the other bots, he carries no sword or shield, yet after the jump cut his sword and shield are on his back. Honestly, we are 5 films in and we get these stupid CGI mistakes. Plenty of them in AoE as well. If I recall correctly, TF1 did not nearly have as many if any CGI errors.
