    That on-screen crap reminds me of Generation 2's cybernetic cube. As X-Entertainment put it, G2 was like trying to watch the G1 cartoon in the middle of the Honda production line.


    Hope the lossless audio tracks are the same as the theatre audio track. The regular DVD audio was awful. Some dialogue was in audiable and the music was awfully quiet in sections (such as Prime's triumphant charge into Mission City).

    Whatever they say. Neither Bay or Paramount own the character, Hasbro does. And Hasbro says he's Brawl.

    This.

    Though I still wish we had an official story explaining how & why Bay was able to seemingly change the name at his will. It went from being a so-called mistake in theaters to essentially being confirmed later on that Bay just liked the name Devastator better and that's why it wasn't corrected for the DVD. It always seemed odd that Hasbro was apparently okay with that even though they manufactured millions of toys calling the character Brawl.

    When they were filming, they used codenames for the characters, Vortex-Blsackout, Devestator-Brawl, Scorpinoxs, Scorpinok, Brawl-Barricade. Hasbro so it was an error on hasbro's part for not telling them in time.

    Needs 3d turnarounds of all the robots.

    DVD extras are always so disappointing.... they seem to miss the obvious stuff and include a lot of cheap stuff.

    It looks nice, but why are they still using the unfinished/ prototype robot models for the menus. The movie has been out for over a year now

    That's the same as the HD DVD version. Either way this movie looks great in HD. In the HD DVD version Barricade's life meter disappeared after Bonecrusher got destroyed.

    I'm well aware of the code names they used while filming, but that still doesn't explain the situation since, as you just pointed out yourself, they were CODE names. I mean, they managed to get everyone else right when translating the pre-production code names to finalized official names. Where Brawl/Devastator is concerned, Bay changing one word in a sub-title that was added during post production or again 6 months later in the DVD is infinitely easier to do than Hasbro adjusting all of their toy packaging, so it's definitely not a mess up on Hasbro's shoulders. They are, afterall, the ones that come up with, register, copyright & trademark these names in the first place.

    But that's all moot now - I've always just been curious why Bay was able to change the name clearly marketed & sold as another character for no other reason than he apparently liked it better. It's not a debate or complaint anymore - just a curiousity.

    How was it an error on Hasbro's part when every other name was correct?

    Also, the production team kept referring to certain characters by the wrong names like 'Skorpinox', because those names were stuck in their minds for months. Both Orci and Kurtzman pointed out the Devastator error to Bay during editing, but evidently he ignored them as he claimed at the Sydney June 13, 2007 press conference that he always preferred the name Devastator over Brawl.

    How is that Hasbro's fault?

    Worried about that too. It's clearly the prototype Megatron on the pic.
