    So what were some cool, neat little things you noticed on the Transformers? This can be anything from little details to transformations. I'll start off.

    1. Obvious: Prime's head gears spun occassionally
    2. Prime's cab folds upwards and then moves back into position after everything else has locked into place
    3. Ratchet's chest spins around during transformation
    4. Ratchet has the spare wheel on his back
    5. Ironhide's Road Armor becomes the chest (not present in the older CGI renders!)
    6. Blackout's tailfins become his feet, while the rest of it is either tucked away in the backpack (he actually fills the hollow space he has in altmode!)
    7. Blackout has "No Step" signs on his fingers
    8. Blackout has a minigun in his wrist
    9. Blackout has a mouthplate (seen when he notices the laser target on his fist; he retracts it when he recognizes Epps)
    10. The Autobots appeared to have teeth...But it were actually spinning gears! (noticed it on a BIG screen)
    11. Prime's trailer attachment piece ends up on his back, below the plates
    12. Starscream has his nullrays (miniguns on the shoulders (noticed it in an earlier screencap), which move downwards (when he fired on the Autobots and air force).

    Anything else you guys noticed?

    In the last scene, on the hill, Prime seems to be turning the wheels on his leg manually.

    Why does Prime blink all the time?

    because he's Optimus, that's the only answer you need

    Starscreams head seems much more cobra like in the movie than on the toy.

    Jazz's taillights are on his back and his windshield is hidden much better.

    I noticed that, too. I also spotted the "NO STEP" on Blackout's hand, when he reaches in to grab the computer. That was a nice touch.

    I liked Bumblebee's car decorations: he had a disco ball, a "bumblebee" air freshener saying "BEE-OTCH," a furry plastic lion on the dashboard, and at least one bobble-head dog in the back window.

    I didn't notice this, but it was pointed out in an article at Edmunds.com, that Bumblebee's wheels (on the older Camaro model) are mis-matched.

    I also saw Jazz's visor go up to reveal his eyes, in the scene where they disarm the S7 guys.

    I noticed towards the end of the movie, after the final battle, when Primus speaks: Instead of teeth, he has this metal line that keeps scrolling to the left inside of his mouth. the line changes into waveforms that match the tone of his voice as he talks. At first it looks like a bunch of loose teeth but it's definitely a waveform. I thought that was a pretty original concept.

    yeah you can clearly see this when Ratchet talks when he is first introduced as well, it was a pretty cool way to have them talk

    Well if the game is anything like the movie then Ironhide should have the Autobot symbol on his back from the tailgate.
