    For those of you who have seen the film, what was your favourite transformation and why?

    For me it was probably Barricade's first transformation in front of Sam. It was fast, intense and really just perfect. Close runner ups go to Jazz's first transformation / dance routine and Ironhide's slow-mo driving -> transform -> rocket jump -> kick-ass.

    Optimus Prime's. He's been a hero for me for years as pictures, cartoons, voices and toys. And then, I see him on a massive screen almost real enough to touch.


    Forgive the pun, but a small spark of hope was born within me when I saw it.

    Man, its hard to choose...Opimus was the most impressive during his introduction but Megs...did anyone notice how quick he transformed? In fact, I noticed that the Decepticons seems to transform faster...but then again it could done on purpose. Meaning...Prime's transformation was to give a feeling of awe.

    I will go for...shucks! I can't choose as they're all GREAT! :D

    I'm gonna be biased and just say Jazz's. Love the breakdancing he throws in. He even did a little G1-esque jump when transforming from robot to car.

    Tie between Barricade, Prime and Ironhide.

    Barricade: It was a definate "OH SHIT!" moment. Very nicely done.
    Prime: Great buildup and nice and complex.
    Ironhide: Slow mo, G1 transformation sound, rocket jump, and to top it all of the woman that screamed at the end. Perfect.

    After reading what you posted...my choice is Optimus...you're right - nice build up with regards to his transformation.

    Optimus Prime's defintely. A nice slow Transformation that accentuates the majestic wonder of giant transforming robots, as well as the nobility of Optimus Prime himself.

    Another m emorable one is Blackout's. It is really dramatic when the blades just suddenly stop and slowly push back. After the G1 Transformation sound is heard, everything whirs and shifts faster as a huge Robot stands up from this whirlwind of machinery and proceeds to bring hell on earth. A very "Holy Shit!" moment.

    I also liked Barricade's really fast car chase transformation. The speed matched the tone of the scene and his sudden transformation signalling yes, the game is so ON!

    You obviously have not seen the movie. They use the transformation sound so often it gets annoying.

    Optimus' introductory transformation, and Blackout's first transformation.

    One was epic and awe-inspiring, the other gave a foreboding sense of impending doom.
