    My computer can play DVDs, so I thought I'd watch the movie on there. The quality was really great. But so great, I saw a mistake on Optimus.

    At the scene where Optimus is ready to scan the truck, go through slowly and look at the grille on the passing truck. Notice something? It's Optimus Prime's Autobot logo! Then on the hill, look at that trucks grille. It doesn't have the logo and has the oval with FREIGHTLINER(?) instead. Anyone else notice this?

    Sorry about not being able to post pictures.

    Prime is a Peterbilt.

    I'll probably watch the movie tomorrow or Sunday, so I'll check that out.

    That's interesting, I'll have to check it out. But I wouldn't be suprised if the animators through it in intentionally, just to see if people would notice. I think that's how the Millenium Falcon ended up in Star Trek First Contact....though I've yet to find it....

    Personally, I don't see why people point out tiney mistakes like this. Every film has them, it's unavoidable. Unless it's something that can easily be noticed, especially in the theatre, I don't call it a "mistake".

    The only mistake I noticed in the theatre was during the parts between the Autobots freeing Sam from the Sector 7 guys to when they take BB. Sam's sweatshirt jumps around a few time between off and on.

    I gotta check that out. I like noticing little mistakes like that.

    It doesn't make it any less of a movie but still I think of them like easter eggs and fun to look for

    I've gone frame by frame with this scene trying to find this exact thing, and there is no trace of the Autobot insignia on the grill of the truck Prime scans.

    I can't see it either.

    There's only one real mistake as far as shooting a movie is concerned. Just before Prime fights BC and they're speeding down the highway, for a split second (easier to see with Frame by Frame) as the camera pans across Prime in VM, you can see the relfection of bays Pontiac camera car in his bumper.

    Though they did an excellent job of hiding it/editing it out throughout the movie.

    Well, all films have mistakes in them. There's an entire website dedicated to listing those mistakes for all movies - moviemistakes.com. Here's the link for a list of all the mistakes found so far for Transformers if anyone's interested.

    that autobot insignia is a legitimate mistake. I just checked it out. The one that drives by has one and prime doesn't have one after he scans it.

    Thats a good find.

    Only mistake I noticed straight away was Bumblebee's door magically opening/closing from one shot to the next after Mikaela gets out after he's "broken down", as Sam is freaking out with the million "No"s

    there is another, when sam fights off frenzy he has he trousers (pants for you yanks) taken off and when you see bumblebee let them pick up the bag and phone you see his trousers on the floor un-picked up!!!!! he then has them on the next time you see him.

    although iam bringing this to light it doesnt really bother me, i just noticed it?

    COME on, that just like when BUMBLE BEE, kills the motor as SAm just picked up Mikaela. SHe leaves the passenger side door open as she gets out of the car, and looks under the hood. the next wide screen shot you see Sam and Bumble Bee only the driver side door is open. YES it's a movie and yes there are going to be mistakes. Just like in Peral Habor there is a Plastic Red gas can in 1 of the farm scenes.

    He's right! The truck passing has a logo that protrudes upwards, while the second truck (Prime) has a much wider logo that doesn't.

    Actually there is a major mistake during the highway scene.

    When Barricade is seen pulling off to the side of the road, all of the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road as far as US drivers are concerned.
