    Just looking at the new trailer I noticed the shot of the protoforms is the exact same as the one from the trailer for Transformers 1. Not that this is a bad thing.

    I'm just being observant and wondering if it's just the editors using the same footage, or if this is a flashback to T1 showing other transformers coming to Earth and hiding or something along those lines. . . .

    Any thoughts?

    you could be right

    I think he did use the Pearl Harbor Aircraft Carrier panning "wide" shot also in Transformers

    Are people gonna slam him for it though?

    I personally didn't notice until someone pointed it out and once they did, I didn't even care.

    If he chooses to use the same shot and use the money saved from that shot to improve more CG effects for more robot rumble, I'll fully support his method of stealing shots from his own movies.

    I don't mind it as long as the same shot isn't used twice in the same movie. If they can edit it enough to look like a new shot, then go for it.

    I spotted it too. I guess they have to save cash somewhere now and then.

    Well, if they rendered totally new shots, it'd look almost the same anyway, since Protoforms are the "skeleton" folded into a ball covered in a candy coating.

    Megs doesnt have a Tatto on his leg.

    And you seriously need to stop it with the Movie Lines/Quotes.
