    Thinking of all the foreshadowing & homages done in DOTM, I think they missed a huge opportunity to have Sentinel say to Ironhide "Such Heroic Nonsense" (as if that scene wasn't already over the top).

    Anyone else think other chances were missed?

    I feel the same way about the quote thing. I was hoping to hear a "Megatron must be stopped...no matter the cost" or maybe a "such heroic nonsense" as you said. I can't imagine how that would fit into what Sentinel was saying at the time though...

    Any kind of reference to being "More than meets the eye" or "robots in disguise" would have been really cool if one of the humans said it about the Transformers.

    I don't really mind. Homages are nice, but I'd rather them come up with new stuff to say then recycling old lines for the sake of fanwank.

    Considering that I am a huge Transformer fan, and a star trek fan, another homage/reference, and I might have exploded from epic win overload

    I think when starscream destroys the xanthiam ship, he totally coulda been like "Skywarp Thundercracker, ATTACK!!" and they coulda been included for a few seconds

    That wouldn't have made since... he was just standing there. Maybe if they had left in the Twins getting killed (and having them be the ones he shot in the back) and then he tried to fight him before he was killed... then that would have made since to say that there.

    So when the boom-stick that Wheeljack/Que gave Sam to use shorted out. Was that a reference to Wheeljacks things always going wrong from the G1 days? I thought it was and kinda loved that moment.

    I think te same, but meh, I don't really care...
    and about "such heroic nonsense", I don't think Sentinel would say that, he was just doing that stuff to save cybertron... maybe for Starscream, Shockwave or Soundwave it would have worked better (in the middle of the battle)

    when soundwave sent lazerbeak to kill the humans, he should have thrown a "operation" in there. would have been cool to have him eject lazerbeak after he transformed and revealed himself to sam and carly too

    I can imagine Sentinel saying "Such heroic nonsense," to either Ironhide or Prime. I know Nimoy's voice by heart. Why? Cuz im a slight Trekkie.
