    Did anyone else think Ironhide freaking out about Starscream was funny too? I laughed the first time i saw it...he didn't even act that way when Megatron showed up, but gave a "IT'S STARSCREAM!!!!!!" whenever he zoomed by. My friend and I think it's funny for some reason, he transformed just to say that.

    Somebody should do a mashup of Transformers with other big 2007 blockbusters.

    "It's Starscream!"

    "Starscream?....THIS IS SPARTA!"



    Sorry...I'll be good.

    Nah, I didn't think it was funny. I think I was a little too caught up in the tension of the moment laugh at anything (more or less "Oh Shit, Starscream!") besides the Bratz-"OMG!"-Chick in the Elscalade and the Mountain Dew Machine from hell. In all seriousness, I was wondering how Autobots and Decepticons tell eachother apart from non-Transformer vehicles.

    I've wondered that recently too...i guess in the same way humans do somehow. There must be some distinguishable feature all Autobots and Decepticons have..I'm just guessing though

    I'm sure on some of them it is...kinda obvious.

    Barricade has his decepticon insignia in the police shield as well as his whole "To punish and enslave..." motto on his sides.

    Bonecrusher has his name/logo on his side.

    Megatron...is a cybertronian jet >_>

    Scorps is....well, you get the idea >_>

    I may be wrong, but isn't that the first time ironhide meets up with the decepticons since leaving cybertron?

    Maybe logos, but for those who don't have logos on their alt mode, probably like a "spidey-sense" thing all transformers have.

    I kinda think that they have Friend or Foe recognition capabilities... but then this gets canceled out whenever Soundwave can hide in plain sight as a street lamp outside of Iacon (MTMTE Pt I), or Megatron blasts a produce truck thinking it's Optimus (Marvel Comics #25).

    It is a good question.

    I was thinking something about every Autobot/Decepticon that's inherently recognizeable by all Transformers. Something about their energy readings...i don't know, it could be anything. I guess this isn't true though, if Megatron has gone around blasting random trucks because he thought they could've been Optimus.

    Megatron is crazy though he'll just blast any random truck.

    They have radio freqencies that tell them that.

    I only remember him saying it once, and I figured it was because the humans were standing around staring up at the sky like idiots and he was trying to point out that it wasn't one of their raptors.

    I think it was a case of everyone assuming the F-22 was a human piloted one until the penny dropped; it was just Ironhide who voice it. I'm sure every Autobot's internal monologue when Megatron arrived was along the lines of "Aw crap. NOW we're dead..."

    It was just that one time, and was more of an "Oh shit" moment, like Prisoner1138 and Draven said, because they were all expecting it to be a human-piloted F-22.

    I did laugh at this, though:

    Yes, the comment on Megatron blowing up random Produce Trucks thinking its Optimus Prime does defeat the "Energy Reading" theory, but I think its a good one. I mean, if Sector 7 figures that the Transformers give off high-level radiation readings whenever present, who's to say Transformers can't tell non-Transformer Vehicles apart from their own energy readings? That and their being able to see where the Insignias are on the Vehicles, if they're looking.

    I don't think they can tell when other Transformers are around, let alone that they are Transformers. Barricade was totally surprised by Bumblebee, twice, during that long chase scene. Plus it kind of works better with the 'disguise' thing if they can actually work on other bots.

    I always thought that was pretty funny.

    But I dont remember the decepticons having Insignias on them at all.

    Ironhide also said to get back when Megatron crashed into the street. Also, Ratchet said he sensed the decepticons are getting reader for an attack. That was when they where at the building when they looked at the glasses.
