    I noticed when I watched the DOTM DVD the film ended with Optimus saying
    "We will never forsake this planet and it's people" while the one I saw in theaters ended with "For I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to the universe: We are here. We are home."

    Now I heard that the 2D version in theaters didn't have the full ending speech either, but I just got the Blu-Ray 3D today and it's also missing the last line. What gives?

    Sorry if this has been brought up before, I did a search but didn't find anything.

    Well that's a bit of a burden. Anyone ever ask Micheal Bay why? Or whoever puts the stuff on home video.

    It was discussed shortly after the movie's release. Not to be rude, but you're misremembering. That line was never included in any release of the film, because it was never shot. It doesn't exist.

    Really? But I'm so sure he said "I am Optimus Prime..."
    Plus I remember a topic, not here but on another forum, with people claiming they heard it only in 3D showings.

    Perhaps I am misremembering. Ah well, I'll get it straighten up eventually.

    You mean you remember hearing that last bit too? Whew, I was beginning to think I was the only one who heard it. It's weird, I'm almost certain I heard it, but... I dunno.

    Just because it's in a book, doesn't make it actual movie dialogue. Like the dialogue in the first TF movie novel where after Sam tells Mikaela to put a seatbelt on the Allspark, he says they just sounded like parents talking about a child.

    Or another spaz attack by Glen that Simmons has ruined his phone and is gonna get him a new one.


    Reminds me of when I read the novelization of 'Back to the Future Part II' before the film came out. There's a scene after Marty starts questioning Doc about his future, and Doc exasperatedly says that maybe they should forget the whole plan and take Marty and Jennifer back to 1985, causing Marty to apologize to Doc.

    I never read the book for it.

    I was kind of ticked off in the theater and was wanting the film to hurry up and finish, so maybe I was just hearing things. But the line "We Are Home" just seems so faintly familiar because I remember thinking how Cybertron was gone so Earth is their home now on the way out of the theater. It seemed right to be there.

    Oh God you guys are making me think that it was there and I don't know! I saw the 3D version and that line sounds familiar but I don't know if I'm actually remembering it or thinking that I remember!

    There is only 1 version of the film. The line "We are here, we are home" was not in it. People are simply misremembering.

    Back when the movie was a few weeks past release, there was a debate on here about some sort of mysterious mechanical roar that supposedly took place at the very end of the credits. Problem was, some people said "there definitely was a mechanical roar." Other people said "there definitely was mechanical breathing." One guy even said "I remember being startled by a sound, but I don't remember what the sound was." And of course, there were those who said "I heard absolutely nothing." I think at some point there were six different versions of what people heard.

    Point is: people remember things wrong. There was no mystery sound. There was nothing beyond the end of whatever song was playing. And there's no "we are here, we are home" line either. Never was.

    EDIT: There are several lines of difference between the novel and the movie.

    You must be mistaken, the "For I am Optimus Prime..." was never in the movie, it was in the novel.

    I think the confusion here stems from the fact that the line sounds like it should be in the movie. I know without a doubt that the version I saw in theaters did not have that line, but I'm almost willing to believe that I thought I heard it, too, simply because it sounds like something that would be there. I can imagine Optimus saying it and in doing so, I almost feel like it was something I actually heard....if that makes any sense at all. :lol

    100% agreed...EXCEPT for the part about the sound at the end of the credits. There is indeed a 'bot sound at the end of the credits, but it's more than breathing and less than a roar. Something more along the lines of a transformers yawn, lol.

    Are you saying that's how the song in the credits actually ends, though? I seem to remember someone making that point here before can't remember for sure, thanks.

    There is no noise at the end of credits that is separate from the music being played. Whatever "bot sound" people are hearing is simply part of the song; it's even repeated over and over as part of the song's hook. There is no unique sound effect played at the end of this song that doesn't appear earlier in the song.

    The song is the only thing played at the end of the credits. There is no breathing, yawning, etc. Paramount would not have tacked on multiple sound effects across random showings. Everyone saw the exact same movie. There are no alternate versions of Dark of the Moon.

    Just to be CLEAR, there IS a "yawning/breathing/roaring/etc." sound at the end of the credits BUT it is simply a piece of the actual song and WAS NOT attached there as an end-of-credits bonus.

    Got it, thanks.

    :)
