    barricade's first transformation is in front of a coffee shop (possible cop reference?)

    barricade transforms 5 times, the most of all the decepticons in the film (& second only to that show off bumblebee's 7):
    1) in the battle of chicago ruins
    2) just prior to his meeting with megatron
    3) arriving in the abandoned city
    4) giving chase to the autobots after the autobot ambush
    5) in london after bumblebee blasts him during their chase


    this is the first time barricade is seen transforming since film 1

    technically speaking, tlk features the first 'autobot' combiner (the twins combined in rotf so idk if that counts..im talking like a big combiner like devestator or dragonstorm)

    You mean Dragonstorm? I don't think they were technically Autobots or Decepticons.

    agree, i saw that dragonstorm had the autobot insignia on his toy iirc so i just assumed he's aligned with them...same for cogman & daytrader..i dont think we ever get official confirmation if they are even autobots

    I feel like Cogman is definitely an Autobot and Daytrader is technically an Autobot that just doesn't really follow the cause. Dragonstorm is probably in the same basket as Lockdown in Aoe. They had to put some insignia on his toy's box so they stuck a Decepticon symbol since he's a bad guy.

    The weird contradiction is that Steelbane gets an Autobot figure while Skullitron gets a Decepticon figure, even though they are both knights in the movie.

    oh wow that is very interesting re: steelbane & skullitron..i figured skullitron was a 'good guy' even if he was fighting other 'good guys' he was doing so to protect the 'good guy macguffin'

    tlk is the first time since film 1 that villains have both the first & final transformation in a film:

    tf1: blackout & starscream
    tf2: ironhide & jetprime
    tf3: dino & bumblebee
    tf4: lockdown & grimlock (ratchet & grimlock if you're counting strictly full-transformations)*
    tf5: barricade & infernocus

    when the decepticons arrive in the abandoned tumbleweed town, while the actual transformation is not shown, megatron can be see landing from a transformation...neat little detail i thought

    *grimlock's transformation finishes last*

    In AOE, do you count Lockdown's face cannon transformation, when he pokes his head out of the water? There is a lightning fast transformation of Ratchet, as he's on the run also. Then there is Lockdown, mostly off screen. The first full on, detailed one is Lockdown though in front of the silos.

    TLK also established that barricade has infact 2 vocal processors and that welker's line in DOTM was not a mistake :p  (jk)

    his upper eyes being blue siren lights might also be a reference to when his eyes got shot out in DOTM and they are replacements.

    i too go back & fourth on whether or not to include partial transformations...if you're not including partial transformations, then yes, ratchet is indeed first

    just realized something from rotf....so with megatron dead & starscream & the fallen aboard the nemesis, it appears as if soundwave is in command of the earth-based decepticons until megatron's revival

    Yeah I could that as him being another subversion of Bumblebee. Bumblebee has (had) no voice. While Barricade has 2 voices.

    I didn't read through the 14 pages to see if this was mentioned yet, but:

    Anyone else notice Cade calling the baby Swoop dinobot "Terry?"

    ....a reference to the Pee-Wee's Playhouse character named Terry; who was the same kind of dinosaur:

    Well, to be fair, that's why the Pee Wee one was called that too.
