    Hovercrafts with onboard battle tanks. :bay 

    I can't be the only one who thought that was pretty awesome. I kept thinking it'd make a cool voyager or ultra class set where the Hovercraft is a big bot and the tank is like a minion. They weren't small tanks either.

    There's a whole heap of stuff like that in ROTF that's only glimpsed. Pretty much every vehicle you see you have to wonder if it's a robot in disguise. There were so many things that'd make very cool alt modes.

    And we may yet - after all, Incinerator and Landmine were based on non-TFing vehicles in the first film, that desert battle sequence provides plenty of inspiration for more.

    true, it's pretty mental some of the military hardware Bay got permission to use. I had no idea some of that stuff actually existed.

    And they kinda missed an opportunity to drop an allspark fragment in the Smithsonian. Would've been all kinds of expensive goofy awesome.

    What with all these Egyptian plot devices, they could have done a crossover with Night at the Museum.

    Didn't they mention some sort of model T transformer as well? That'd be kinda cool for scout class. There's a lot of room to expand on that stuff in the comics.

    Yeah, it probably would've played a bit like that. Haven't seen those movies.

    I was distracted and kinda missed the bit, but I think they had some old photographs, including one of those old tin cars and I think they specifically said they were all transformers.

    It's exactly the kind of thing I want to see them expand on with the toyline and comics.
