    So I'm crazy like this, and had some time last night. So I went ahead and decided to type up everything that happened in the comic book. It's a HUGE summary, but I figured it would help me keep things straight and I'm sure everyone else would appreciate it. Warning: MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS!!! (Note: I'll continue to update this with more details as I can find them, or fix any mistakes)

    NOTE: Skids and Mudflap are NOT in the movie. Any scenes you see below from the comic with them in it will NOT be in the movie. End of story.

    Note: Story starts off on page 3 and ends on page 90.

    - Page 3: Movie starts off on July 20th, 1969 with the moon landing. They then cut off the signal; this is the scene from the announcement trailer. They tell the astronauts that they have 21 minutes.
    - Page 4: We see the astronauts find the Ark, which had crash-landed there many years before.
    - Page 5: The astronauts enter the Ark. They find Sentinel Prime there, and we see a close-up of his face. "We are not alone" is what the astronauts say.
    - Page 6: We then cut to a suspected rogue state nuclear facility in the middle east in present day. We have the usual Optimus Prime voice-over: "We are not alone. And that has not been easy to get used to. For too long, we Autobots held the evil Decepticons at bay, ourselves. But as war spread from the dying planet Cybertron to our new home on Earth, we found something unexpected: Allies." There's a shot of the Defense Minister's car, followed by Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Mirage (new red Ferrari Autobot who likes to drive very fast and can also turn invisible), and Wheeljack (new blue Mercedes Autobot who likes to invent things, like grapple gloves that fire hooks to help Lennox and his soldiers climb walls and large robots) all in vehicle mode. The guards let them in but are confused by the entourage of the Autobot cars. We see Mirage transform and the others in the background transform, and Mirage says, "Don't move and you don't have to die today."
    - The Autobots secure the area, and Wheeljack discovers Cybertronian tech which the Decepticons have been leaking out.
    - Page 8: There's an explosion and the four Autobots are seen walking away from it. They are Mirage, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Sideswipe. Wheeljack calls to base, and says the mission is accomplished. We then see the decommissioned N.E.S.T. HQ in Diego Garcia. Optimus Prime at base tells Wheeljack to head back to Washington and that Optimus and Ratchet will be along when they finish closing down the old base. Optimus' voice-over continues: "While we track down stolen weaponry, Colonel Lennox believes he has a lead on the location of a recently surfaced foe. A foe whose crimes I vow shall not go unpunished. My fallen friends won't pass to the next life alone." Optimus Prime looks over at some crates labeled with the names of dead Autobots: "Knockout, Elita-one, Dune Runner, Blazemaster, Armorhide, and Jolt". He specifically looks at the picture of Elita-one. Colonel Lennox asks Optimus Prime if he's ready. He says Ratchet is onboard the C-17 and they're ready to head to Ukraine. Optimus Prime says he's ready and also hopes his contact is correct. Lennox says it's time to play hero again.
    - Page 9: In Washington D.C., we see Carly wake Sam up and give him a stuffed animal bunny as a good luck charm and says he's getting a job today. Sam jokes and says she should just give him the rabbit's foot, and Carly says that's just mean to take a foot off of a rabbit. Sam talks about how demoralizing it is to have saved the world twice and is now groveling for a job. Then the small robot named Brains (from the prequel comics) jumps out from behind the bed and says, "Yea-- I guess we know who wears da pants in dis family!" Sam pushes him away and Carly leaves the room saying, "You're not normal, Sam" and Sam replies with, "That's why you love me." Carly leaves by saying, "Not love, yet. We'll be closer when you can cover your half of the rent. Now-- go get a job!" So it appears Carly and Sam are living together. (It's revealed at some point in the movie that Sam and Carly met at the White House, the day President Obama gave Sam a medal)
    - Page 10: Sam escorts Brains back to the doghouses (for Frankie and Mojo). Brains tells Sam that Carly has to learn to live with them (referring to himself and Wheelie), so he has to pick. Sam picks Carly. Wheelie complains and says that he was there for Sam when Mikaela dumped him. Sam asks them if they ever wondered by the other Autobots don't want the two of them around. Wheelie says they're wasting their talent, and Sam replies with, "yours and mine both."
    - Page 11: We then go to Prypiat, Ukraine. Ratchet and Optimus Prime are in vehicle mode. Ratchet jokes to Optimus saying that they've been to some beautiful places on Cybertron, but the wasteland here takes the prize. Optimus Prime asks if Cybertron was any better when they were done with it. We see Colonel Lennox ask if they enjoyed the tour. He says the city has been uninhabited since 1986, and the only way for humans to survive the radiation is with the suits they're wearing. A guy named Voskhod isn't wearing a suit and says it's only a matter of time for him anyways. Voskhod says that every year they dig deeper, but this year they found it (we don't know what "it" is yet). He says to follow him, but first he says he must tell Colonel Lennox something. Something flies overhead and Voskhod says that perhaps that can wait. Lennox tells Voskhod to keep no secrets. Voskhod says that Lennox doesn't understand this part of the world, and that if they're found, his country will deny he ever existed, just as they do the aliens at the heart of Chernobyl (we know Shockwave is kept there, so that may be who he is referring to).
    - Page 12: They come upon something and Lennox says the object looks extraterrestrial and that it's in some kind of harness. He wonders why it has Soviet Space Program markings. Optimus Prime says that that is not the question they should be asking. The object is later revealed to be an engine booster from an Autobot ship. The ground starts to shake and Voskhod says, "No, no-- not now..." The tentacle creature appears from the ground and starts attacking, and it kills some humans.
    - Page 13: Everyone runs out and Ratchet tries to stay with Optimus Prime, but Optimus tells him to leave and that this one is his. As they leave, Lennox asks Ratchet if that's what he thinks it is. Ratchet says that it's a Driller, "the most feared and terrible beast on all of Cybertron, and worse..."
    - Pages 14-27 are missing. Supposedly on page 14, Shockwave appears with the Driller. Sometime during these pages, we learn that the Russians took parts from the Ark and Optimus Prime confronts the humans about this. They decide they need to go to the moon to see the Ark in hopes of finding their lost leader who disappeared at the start of the war. Optimus Prime, Ratchet, and Bumblebee land on the moon and find the Ark torn up from the crash. Inside the Ark, Optimus Prime finds a secret door that is locked, so he enters a code and the door opens. They find Sentinel Prime and bring him to Earth. Also at some point, Sam goes in to interview for a job. The interviewer, played by John Malkovich, has one scene where he calls an assistant since one of the secretaries is using a red mug and he says that it doesn't go with the yellow carpet, so his assistant instantly takes the cup and throws it away. Sam ends up getting the job. There's another scene with a guy named Wang who recognizes Sam as the "guy who knows the aliens", so he takes Sam to a bathroom and fights with him inside to take his pants down to give Sam his "testimonial" and after that they get out only to be caught by Sam's boss, who is surprised to see Wang with his pants down and Sam next to him.
    - Page 28: Laserbeak (one of Soundwave's minions who is like a bird robot that can change into many forms like a stereo, TV, or computer so that he can hide in plain sight and spy on humans) is chasing Sam through an office building firing away and Sam says, "I never know what you're talking about and you always attack me!" Sam has an axe. He's angry at always being attacked and he says he doesn't know anything. He gets on a table and slams the axe into Laserbeak. Sam's boss walks in, Sam says he doesn't think he'll have those files ready by three -- and can he take the rest of the day off? Laserbeak tries contacting Soundwave, so it seems he's still alive.
    - Page 29: We're now at N.E.S.T. operations in Washington D.C., and we see Carly, Sam, Wheelie, Brains, and Colonel Lennox. Sam explains that after Laserbeak got away, he ran home and grabbed Carly and Bumblebee and they came straight there. Wheelie says he thinks it was the Decepticons. Sam says he knows it was the Decepticons. Apparently, Wang said that Sam needed to warn Colonel Lennox and everyone. Apparently Wang also mentioned the moon. Carly asks why Decepticons would bother to kill humans, and Colonel Lennox says they're probably after what they just found. Then, a lady enters and starts complaining that this is a security breach of the highest order. Sam tells the lady to show some respect. Colonel Lennox introduces Sam to the lady, who is U.S. Intelligence Director Mearing. Director Mearing says she knows who Sam is and personally denied his application to work for N.E.S.T. because the squad is for veterans, not boys who once owned special cars. Carly says that's not fair and calls Director Mearing "Ma'am", and she doesn't like that.
    - Page 30: The door opens to reveal Ironhide and Ratchet. Narration by Megatron presumably about how he could be jealous, after all Autobots have friends, but he takes solace that only friends keep secrets from one another. Ironhide points out Sentinel Prime to Sam and tells him that Sentinel was once Optimus Prime's mentor and their leader. Optimus opens his chest, takes out the Matrix of Leadership and says, "The Matrix of Leadership -- the only thing in the universe that could possibly re-power an Autobot that's been stuck on the moon for so long." Optimus uses the Matrix on Sentinel Prime and says, "Sentinel Prime.. we bid you return." Sentinel Prime awakes.
    - Pages 31-36 are missing. Somewhere in these missing pages is this scene: It shows Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime driving down a beautiful part of the planet with a sunset. Sentinel tells Optimus that he left Cybertron to find a save haven for the Autobots, and that Optimus has finally found it. Optimus then opens his chest revealing the Matrix of Leadership. Optimus tells Sentinel that it's his if he wants it, but Sentinel refuses, because Optimus knows more about the planet than him.
    - Page 37: We're at Sam's apartment with Agent Simmons, Bumblebee, and others. Carly walks in and Simmons asks who that is. Sam says he didn't hear her come in, and Carly says she came in through the kitchen. She asks what's going on and asks if he forgot. Carly tells Sam that it's Saturday and they were supposed to be at Dylan's (Carly's boss) party. She says she told him about it and it's for her job, the one that pays the bills. She said Sam told her she was done with this, that after what happened back at his school he was done with all the "life-and-death" stuff. She says the Autobots will take care of it and that's what they're here for, Sam is just in the way. That's what Director Mearing said. Sam says he didn't ask to be attacked by a Decepticon and this isn't what he wanted. Carly doesn't believe him and tells him good luck and she has to go. She rips the foot off the stuffed bunny. Simmons tells Sam he's better off this way and that "the warrior's path is a solitary one."
    - Page 38: At night, we see Atlantic City. We see Agent Simmons, Sam, and someone else. Simmons says, "Nothing like going to a gig with Autobot backup." He talks about how Brains came up with three U.S.S.R. cosmonauts who made some interesting claims back in 1972. A former NSA member tracked him down. They walk into a bar and Simmons talks to one of the guys and tells him he knows who he is. Simmons says he was supposed to go to the dark side of the moon, then the whole program got shut down and asks him why. Suddenly, a bunch of guns are pulled at them.
    - Page 39: The Russian cosmonaunt tells them they don't fear them just because they work for aliens. Sam says they don't work for the aliens, or at least not the bad ones. Brains is there with Sam and the others, and he starts speaking Russian and says they're the good guys and says they can ask him anything about the universe. The Russian guy said he dreamed of meeting life from another planet and didn't expect it to be so adorable. Sam asks the Russian guy if he knows what's up there on the moon. The Russian guy says the Russians were first to send cameras and saw hundreds of pillars on the moon. Sam says they found five of them, so the Decepticons must have the others. He wonders why they left Sentinel Prime since he's the only one that can use them. He then realizes something.
    - Page 40: We see a lady who is apparently Director Mearing walking in a parking lot talking on the phone. It's Sam on the line and he tells her it's a trap and she asks who it is. Sam says they need Sentinel Prime to run the space bridge. Director Mearing says, "Mr. Witwicky, I thought I was clear..." Sam continues and tells her the Decepticons wanted them to find Sentinel Prime because only Optimus Prime could revive him. They need Sentinel Prime to run the space bridge, so they're escorting him back now. We see Sam in Bumblebee and there are other Autobots in vehicle mode there, including Sideswipe, Mirage, and Sentinel Prime (in fire truck mode). Director Mearing tells Sam that they have his space bridge and that it's safe. Sam tells her she has five pillars and they have hundreds. They're going to be coming for Sentinel Prime. They approach a bunch of Chevy Suburban SUV police cars.
    - Page 41: One of them transforms into a Decepticon Dread and attacks a car, pulling Agent Simmons out of the rooftop. The Dread on top of the car being driven by Simmons' assistant then gets hit by an overpass sign.
    - Page 42: Sam driving Bumblebee is being chased by the Dreads. Sam tells Sideswipe to tell Sentinel Prime to get out of there and for them to cover Sentinel. Simmons' assistant pulls up and runs over Simmons' leg. Sideswipe tells Sentinel to get out of there and head to base. Sentinel tells them to be safe. Sideswipe says "Safe isn't in our vocabulary, sir. You with me, Mirage?" Mirage replies, "Sideswipe -- there's nowhere else I'd be." Both are in Stealth Force mode using Mech tech weapons that appear from the vehicle.
    - Pages 43-45 are missing.
    - Page 46: Sentinel Prime blasts Ironhide in the face and says, "I have always been the key."
    - Page 47: Ironhide dying says, "Sentinel... w-why?" and Sentinel Prime says, "I am sorry, my Autobot brothers." Sam, Simmons, Bumblebee, Skids, and others stand watching in shock. Optimus Prime's narration says that long ago on Cybertron, his mentor Sentinel Prime made a last-ditch effort to end the war between Autobots and Decepticons. Sentinel Prime's ship was blown out of the sky, and the war has continued ever since. Optimus Prime spent his life believing he was dead, and then he found him. He believed his fondest dream had come true, but he was wrong.
    - Page 48: Sentinel Prime says, "We were never going to win the war. For the sake of our planet's survival, a deal with Megatron had to be made. Skids tries attacking Sentinel Prime, and so Sentinel Prime kills Skids. (Note: Skids is not in the movie, so this scene doesn't happen in the movie)
    - Page 49: Sentinel Prime kills Mudflap. (Note: Mudflap is not in the movie, so this scene doesn't happen in the movie)
    - Pages 50-58 are missing. Somewhere in the middle of that, we have this scene: we see some human shooting a cannon at what appears to be Sentinel Prime. He tells Optimus to run for it, and we see Bumblebee standing next to the human. Optimus Prime's narration says, "Only thanks to my friends do I survive. But the dream has truly become a nightmare." We see what appears to be an evil Sentinel Prime punching Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime says, "Let the humans serve us, or perish!" Bumblebee and the human are still there and Optimus is on the ground and says he told them to leave. Bumblebee and the human said they're not leaving and the human said, "since when did I ever listen to you, Prime?" The human asks what they should do next as he fires at what appear to be other Transformers and Optimus Prime's narration says he doesn't know. It looks like half of Optimus Prime's face is missing and only one eye is visible. His narration says, "But my friends count on me. Fate has placed me here... and fate... fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing." Another scene somewhere during these pages is that the reflection pool in DC is where the space bridge is set. Megatron even removes Lincoln and takes his chair, and the Decepticons invade.
    - Page 59: We then cut to the Gould Estate. We see Sam walk up to Dylan and Carly, and Sam calls Carly's name. Dylan says Sam almost missed the party, but he's a bit underdressed anyways. Sam says he needs to talk to Carly and he has a major problem. Carly says, "Thanks for finally recognizing that." and Dylan asks Sam to come sit down and join them. Sam says no and tells him there's a war going on out there and he needs to talk to his girlfriend and calls Dylan "Mr. Inappropriate Rich Guy" and she he takes Carly and leaves, and Carly tells Dylan she'll see him tomorrow. As they leave, Dylan says, "Sam, my dad taught me if it's not your war, you join the side that's gonna win." Outside, Sam wonders what that's supposed to mean. Carly says who cares and asks Sam what he thinks he's doing. We see the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG behind them.
    - Page 60: Laserbeak then comes out of hiding and attacks Sam and Carly. Sam says, "You again?! I knew you wouldn't just leave me alone!" Then, Soundwave (who was the Mercedes) grabs Carly from behind while they're distracted. Dylan walks out of the building and tells Soundwave not to hurt her. He says to Sam, "You think you're so special, don't you? You think you were the first man asked to join the alien cause?" Dylan explains that they never went back to the moon after 1972 because that's the year they came to his dad and told him to do some creative accounting, make it too expensive to ever go back. His family got to live and the Decepticons have been been their clients ever since.
    - Page 61: Dylan mentions someone named "Wang" who was a "loose cannon" and "nearly botched the whole deal", but Sam was the one thing he could never provide his client. He's had his eye on Sam for years. Dylan says he needs someone close to the Autobots. He tells Sam to track down Optimus Prime and ask him how he intends to fight back, or they will slaughter Carly. Sam promises Dylan that he'll kill him. Dylan holds this weird looking watch that he's giving Sam (maybe it's a tracking/listening device to use on Sam). Standing behind Dylan is Soundwave in full robot mode now, with Laserbeak perched on his shoulder.
    - Page 62: Sentinel Prime is seen broadcasting a message on a TV screen. He calls out to the "Defenders of Earth" and says he is the "true" leader of the Autobots. He talks of how there was a civil war, but that is now over and their armies stand as one. He says they come from a damaged planet, which must be rebuilt, and says he needs the natural resources that our world has an abundance of. Things like precious metal, iron, steel... they will use space bridge technology to transport an "equitable share" and then leave Earth in peace. However, he says for such peace to exist, he calls for them to renounce the remaining resistance (an image of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Mirage, and Ratchet in front of the Washington Monument is shown on screen). He tells them to immediately exile from this planet the rebels they have harbored or he will deem their intent hostile and through his space bridge will come more battalions and they will know his "righteous strength."
    - Page 63: Sam meets with Director Mearing. They couldn't find him. He's sarcastic to her saying she didn't want him in the first place. She apologizes. He's taken aback. She says he is more than a kid who bought the wrong car (Sam says, "The RIGHT car.") She says he's a valuable part of this. Sam: N.E.S.T.? No, the UN has voted to expel the Autobots. Sams' watch causes him some pain. He takes the hint and asks how since they don't have a ship sitting around. She says he's wrong.
    - Page 64: We see Cape Canaveral. The ship is called the Xantium. It brought Sideswipe and the others a while back and NASA has been studying it since. She introduces the Wreckers, the Xantium's engineers. Sam has never heard of them. She says they don't let them off base bacause they're not nice. Topspin (the blue Wrecker) says, "Gonna be fifty thousand pounds of torque on that bolt -- it needs twenty and a quarter rotations! Not ninteen! Did I bloody say nineteen?!" Colonel Epps (who is helping the Wreckers rebuild the Xantium) is standing there arguing with Topspin. Sam and Epps recognize one another.
    - Pages 65-71 are missing. Sometime during these pages, the Wreckers work on the Xantium, which the Autobots prepare to leave on. As they leave, Optimus Prime says, "I'm sorry, Sam. What your leaders say... is true. This is my fault. I told them whom to trust and I was wrong." Sam tell him it's not his fault and then his wristwatch starts hurting him, so Sam tells Optimus he needs to know how he's going to fight back and that he can tell Sam and no other human will ever know. Optimus Prime says, "You are my friend, Sam. You always will be. But your leaders have spoken, from there the fight will be your own. Remember this Sam, you may lose your faith in us, but never yourselves." Sam pleads for Bee to stay and says he needs them. Simmons grabs Sam's shoulder and says, "One day they'll ask us, 'where were you the day they took over the planet?' and we'll tell them we just stood there and watched. The Autobots leave on the Xantium. Also at some point, Sam, Epps, and other soldiers drive a car through the destruction of Chicago to go get Carly
    - Page 72: We see a room filled with Decepticons. Megatron and Sentinel Prime are there, and so are Dylan and Carly. Megatron says that the city is secure and the humans can't stop them. This is the victory he promised Sentinel Prime, and now they can rebuild Cybertron together. Sentinel Prime says that he has deigned to work with Megatron, that their planet may survive. Sentinel Prime slams Megatron's face into the wall and says that he will never work for Megatron. Dylan and Carly leave the area where the Decepticons are. Dylan tells Carly that they're spreading hundreds of these pillars across the Earth. He mentions a Control Pillar that needs to stay anchored to Earth's magnetic core. He says that tomorrow morning, all of Earth's resources will be at the command of Cybertron. Carly asks what he means by our resources and Dylan says that they could get iron, metal, steel at any other galaxy. The reason why they're doing it here is to use humans as slaves, as a six billion-strong labor force. Carly than says that they can't transport people, they wouldn't survive.
    - Page 73: Dylan says they're not going to be shipping people here, they're shipping their planet here. Carly calls him a monster, and Dylan says that you have to stand on the side of progress if you want to be a part of history, even if it means you stand alone. Sam is outside the window and Carly notices him, but Sam tells her to be quiet and act like everything is cool. Sam comes in the door and Carly tells him to look out as Laserbeak tries to blast him. Sam yells "You again!" and falls off the ledge of the building.
    - Page 74: Carly yells for Sam, and Dylan grabs her and says that they're getting out of there because Sam probably didn't come alone. Sam then appears standing on a ship and says, "Hey Dylan, Laserbeak... you guys forgot something" and the ship destroys Laserbeak and starts blasting the building. Dylan runs, and Sam tells Carly to hop onto the ship, which Bumblebee is piloting by the way. He says Optimus Prime and the others are on their way. Dylan runs and tells Megatron and Sentinel Prime that they're here and alive. Sentinel Prime says of course they are and says Optimus Prime can't fool him with his own tricks.
    - Page 75: We see Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, Mirage, and other Autobots driving through the city. Optimus tells them to be ready for anything. Suddenly, the Driller appears through the ground next to him. Shockwave is there and tells Optimus Prime he should have stayed dead this time. This is the scene from the trailer where Shockwave cocks his gun. Optimus Prime says the situation just got worse. They have no weapon that can match Shockwave and the Driller. Wheeljack tells him not to forget about his prototype. Sam and Carly are running from something. Carly says that all they have to do is shoot down the control pillar and the whole space bridge will collapse. She says she knows cause Dylan likes to talk. Epps says that they only have one shot with Hardcore Eddie's launcher and they are going to have a hell of a time sneaking closer. Sam tells Epps to radio for backup and to forget about getting closer, one shot is all they'll need. Sam asks Optimus Prime if they can hold off Shockwave.
    - Page 76-80 are missing.
    - Page 81: Dylan asks Soundwave what he's going to do to the Autobot prisoners (Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Mirage, Wheeljack... maybe more, but no Optimus Prime or Ironhide), and Soundwave replies with, "They are not prisoners anymore, they are trophies." When he says that, he rips Mirage's head off as the other Autobots look on horrified.
    - Page 82: Bumblebee yells a cry and Sideswipe yells "Mirage! No!" Soundwave says, "I thought I'd have some fun with you, but now that it comes to it, I feel bored... time to die!" and we see Bumblebee looking at something that kind of looks like the speakers on Soundwave, but I can't be sure. We see Wheelie and Brains trying to climb aboard a ship. Brains says he doesn't think this is a good idea and he just wants to go home. Wheelie says that in a little while there isn't going to be a home and Sam needs them now. Wheelie finds something that says "Do not use in flight." Brains said, "Better not use it. We're in flight." Wheelie replies with, "Exactly, ya idiot." and pulls the lever.
    - Page 83: Soundwave then looks at Bumbleebee and says something like he's next, then all of a sudden a ship crashes in (I think it's the one that Wheelie and Brains steal). Somehow the Autobots get released and Bumblebee kills Soundwave.
    - Page 84: Down on the ground, some human says that Soundwave is down and the Autobots are on their way. Shockwave tells him that it's too late and that this world is theirs. Sentinel Prime is standing next to something that's glowing nearby. Optimus Prime flies in (he has a jetpack on, the one from the trailer) and attacks Shockwave. Optimus Prime slices off Shockwave's one eye and Shockwave says that even blinded, he is more than a match for Optimus. Optimus Prime says, "Sorry, I don't have time for you anymore" and proceeds to stab Shockwave and kill him. Sentinel Prime in the distance yells out, "The Anchor Pillar!"
    - Pages 85-86 are missing.
    - Page 87: The planet of Cybertron appears close. Megatron's narration says that Sentinel Prime has betrayed him, just as he had betrayed Optimus Prime, as he knew he would. What is apparently a hatchling named Igor next to Megatron says, "Rarf! Master! Look!" A girl (Carly?) says, "All your work, to bring Sentinel back, when he clearly has all the power. I just find it ironic. Almost tragic, really."
    - Page 88: Sentinel Prime tells Optimus that he was always the bravest, but could never make the hard decisions. Megatron's narration talks of how in the fight for Cybertron's future, he has no bounds, and that above all, one thing must be remembered: Megatron is always the master. Megatron then appears and punches Sentinel Prime in the face. Sentinel says that they were Gods once, all of them, but here there will only be one. Optimus Prime blasts Sentinel Prime and says it won't be him. As Sentinel Prime lie dying, he tells Optimus that all he ever wanted was the survival of their race and he must see why he had to betray him. He says, "To save our own kind, we must take over the planet. I did not want to betray you." Optimus Prime responds with, "You betrayed yourself."
    - Pages 89-90 are missing. Somewhere in these pages has Megatron thinking about what could happen if he and Optimus Prime were to reconcile, and Megatron leaves. Also, Bumblebee coughs up a gasket ring and gives it to Sam and wants him to put it on Carly's finger, but Sam says he's not ready to propose yet. Optimus Prime closes with his usual end-of-movie speech saying, "I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to the universe... we are here... we are home." Those are the final pages of the movie.

    Other Notes:
    - Somewhere near the end, the soldiers and Sam and Carly are in Chicago. Sam and Carly get lost, only to be found by Starscream. Sam uses a grappling gauntlet to shoot a harpoon at Starscream's eyes, he keeps hanging and then he inserts a bomb in the other eye. Then, Lennox and his group come and fight Starscream. Sam and Lennox are hanging when Sam says the bomb is about to explode. This is the scene in the trailer where Bumblebee transformers and saves Sam and Lennox as they fall from the building. The comics show Sam killing Starscream with an axe in the face, however that is based on an early version of the script.
    - Whenever Megtron appears, he's seen driving down a road in Africa and an elephant is in his way, so he transformers and kills the elephant.
    - It's also mentioned that Sentinel Prime's expedition was in reality, him defecting from the Autobots and meeting up with Megatron later.
    - It's also important to note that Megatron says he lets the Autobots do their work for them and now it's time for Soundwave to pull his human contact (referring to Dylan).
    - One line that Optimus Prime says to Sentinel Prime is "You taught me that freedom is the right of all sentient beings." and Sentinel Prime responds with "Survival is the right of the fittest."
    - There's also a scene somewhere where we see Carly at her job, organizing a car collection. There, Sam meets her and tells her that he got the job. Then we see Carly's boss, Dylan, and Sam feels jealous.
    - There's a scene at some point that shows Cybertron, when the Ark flies away from pursuing Decepticons in a rain of fire, missiles, lasers, etc. The cockpit of the Ark turns out along the hull and becomes a rear battle station full of frantic Autobots defending themselves.

    So yea, sounds pretty awesome to me. Of course this isn't the final version of the movie, as the Twins are in it. There's also a bunch of scenes from the trailer that are not in what we have so far, so this of course isn't everything that happens in the movie. Can't wait for July 1st to see it all on the big screen!

    Thanks to caldo15, Cth, protocida, Heat Guy, and Neo-Bombshell for some additional details!

    Thanks for putting that all together. Sounds really epic. Kind mad at myself for reading all this and spoiling it for myself. What the hell. Im sure I'll still be surprised when I see it on the big screen.

    No problem, I figured people would want to know and I made sure to appropriately label this thread with spoiler tags unlike some other people on this forum. But I also don't care about being spoiled on this because I know it'll look really cool on the big screen, and this isn't the final version of the script so there will be some minor changes here and there probably.

    Question: was Ironhide ever seen again after Sentinel blasted him?

    Roughly 30-40 I think... I managed to get almost all of them, but apparently there's some I missed. So I believe it's like a third or a fourth of the whole comic. Of course, the leaked pages are from throughout the movie.

    No. We don't have all the pages of course, but no he's not in any others after that that were leaked. So he's definitely dead.

    Thanks for the write up. For all the people unhappy with Ironhide's death , I don't think being betrayed is going out like a bitch. It's essentially how Mace Windu died. Anyway, can't wait for the movie and I'm not at all disappointed.

    Terrible way for him to go out. Expected something much more epic. And for Sentinel to kill him just pisses me off. DOTM, story-wise, is rocky for me so far.

    Did not expect that from Sentiel :eek: ..
    This is just a comic, some parts may have been altered a bit.
    Anyways this movie looks like it's gonna be one hell of a good one, even though I probably spoiled it for myself:rolleyes2 

    Thanks for posting this DarkWish :thumbs2:

    Doesn't mean I have to like it now. Didn't like it then either.

    Well, now we know why we have a Leader class version of him. To recreate Sentinel killing him.
