    I saw this the second time I saw the movie the other night, and since I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it, I thought I might...

    After the Autobots disarm Sector Seven and rescue Sam and Mikaela, they tie up Simmons to the phone pole. The S7 backup shows up, and Prime tells his boys to hightail it.

    Bumblebee takes center stage in the shot by transforming on all fours like he does, but if you look behind him, you can see Jazz doing his G1-style swandive into vehicle mode!

    Thought it was a neat little easter egg.

    Of course, the one good thing about being in England and not seeing the film yet is that I can make note of all these Easter Eggs and see them the first time round. Ah ha!

    Well I do plan to watch it a third time so I'll keep an eye out for that. But yeah, a lot of the transformations and action is based on G1 stuff. It's funny cause so many people complained this wasn't a G1 movie, which it was never said to be, but it was said to be based mostly on G1 and they got that down pat.

    All I remember was focusing on my man Jazz only to have friggin BumbleBee slide into the shot and obstruct Jazz and eveyone else's transformations :(  C'mon BB, since when were you such a camera hog! We already saw BB's transformation from every possible angle we really didn't need to see it there. Highlight some other bots for crying out loud. I wouldn't have mind so much if it was like Ratchet whose Transformation we didn't get to see to often...rant/off

    That scene of Jazz transforming and jumping on Brawl was SO Kup vs. Blitzwing in the 86 TFTM.

    :lol  I had goosebumps for the whole thing...

    I didn't see that particular part (only been once), but was delighted to see the Break dance transformation during the autobot introduction.

    I always figured that jazz would want to do something like that....

    I didnt notice that; but that bumblebee transformation is my favorite, how his tires are already spinning before he was fully transformed, that was awesome!

    I loved the robot-to-vehicle transforms that just flowed smoothly. Barricade running then jumping into vehicle mode for the chase was fantastic. Bumblebee at the top of that embankment transforming and bouncing slightly as he achieved vehicle mode was awesome. Prime's highway transform was spazz-tacular as the roadway was torn to bits, even though that was vehicle to robot. Just lots of good stuff in the transformation sequences.
