    This is the first odd number movie where Megatron does not die.

    But, this is the second time that, in the second movie of a trilogy, Megatron loses his right arm.

    With the release of the film on digital, I can finally clarify something I've been pondering since the theater. In the last fight, after Hot Rod saves Hound and all, we get a shot where in the background, Nitro Zeus is fighting Bumblebee and someone else, and we hear Optimus' growl from ROTF when he slugged Megs in the face early in the forest fight. Now I can finally see that it was Hot Rod tackling Nitro Zeus. Kinda disappointing since I thought, "damn, Nitro is good enough that he's fighting Optimus basically on equal footing". Aw well.

    The decision to have most of the final clash between Optimus, Bee, Hound, Rod, Megs, and Nitro Zeus either in the background or the corner was really disappointing. Multiple named characters fighting multiple named characters is kind of a rarity in this series.

    not sure if anyone mentioned this but cade and lennox´s discussion about wating for optimus is exactly the same one arthur had about merlin ...

    ... using almost the exact same words ! I am surprised I didn´t hear about it here before ... maybe I missed it ?

    This movie seemed to account for a couple of things missing in AOE.
    -Hound, Crosshairs and Drift transforming (you never saw Drift turn into the car in AOE)
    -Drift was the only Autobot not named in dialogue in AOE, but is named 3 times in TLK (twice by Daytrader and once by Crosshairs)
    -Conversely, Crosshairs is not named in TLK

    You're completely right! But there is a simple explanation. The animators didn't have his eyes facing Cade. At some point, someone decided they wanted him looking at Cade. So instead of going back and reanimating the scene, they just used after effects (or whatever) to change the location of his eye lights.

    It is kinda creepy though. His pupils follow Cade, as his actual dead eyes stare straight ahead. :lol

    I think Grimlock might be laughing after the Decepticons retreated.

    And here's an image where it's fixed. Looks like it was a split-second thing.

    considering daytrader´s characterization the head is probably a forgery xD

    Hey can somebody provide me Viviane's quote about "brave souls risk everything etc etc... or is it because dragons are cool as shit?" I'd rather not start a whole thread for it.
