    Here's two they missed -

    From behind the scenes photos 'n stuff, we know that two semi trucks were used. When Optimus scans the passing semi truck, the border on the grille is shaped for his Autobot insignia, but when you see Prime (on the hill) transforming into the truck, you see that it has the oval-shaped plate that reads "PETERBILT". The trucks were switched.

    When Optimus transforms after Bonecrusher transforms in the interstate scene, you can see that Prime's left-rear wheels slide outward but have no axles or any attachment to the chassis whatsoever.

    I didnt see it listed in the 3 pages but there is the scene where bumblebee is hiding from barricade in the industrial park and sam and mikaela are locked in the car.

    Just as barricade stops and front of him and bumblebee starts to peel out to get by him from the dead stop the footage of the bumblebee s tires spinning is from inside the warehouse earlier in the chase.

    So it magically goes from Outside to inside back to outside shot

    This list just makes it seem like this film was just thrown together awfully careless.

    Ebay:
    There are errors similar to these in almost every Hollywood blockbuster. Simple-stupid mistakes - like dinky continuity errors with the placement of furniture, what clothes a person is wearing, etc. - happen on a film this big.

    Ha ha, I'm just waiting for someone to bring up the box office numbers to say that there are no mistakes in the film.

    You think that number of goofs is bad? Look up some of the other blockbusters on there, especially the LOTR movies. It's astounding how many silly little things get past the movie makers, it really is.
    Ha ha, I'm waiting for you to claim that was an innocent jibe and not you trying to rile people up.

    Posted before, and just like Draven said,the LoTR trilogy is infamous for the quantity of mistakes.

    fairly trivial mistakes, but at least it didn't have the old "if they get disabled by cold, how can they fly through space and be okay" line.

    Sso02V - I answered that in another thread. That wasn't the atmosphere around Starscream when he blasted off of Earth, for I don't seem to recall space shuttles doing that when they go up into orbit. It was a heat shield. Goes the same for the Autobots, only they shut theirs off when they entered the atmosphere.

    Yea I'm not surprised. Lots of movies have their mistakes.
    The one that really stood out for me was the Ebay item number. I always kept thinking to myself 'boy that's an awfully short number'.

    You can check imdb or nitpick sites for any movie and find this level of mistakes on pretty much ANY movie. Check out Star Wars sometime. (Fun to see that one Storm Trooper bonk his head on the overhang.) I used to find nitpicks to be fun, but they've kind of gone overboard in the last couple of years.

    So using this to discredit the movie is FAIL.

    one thing i found weird on bumblee and prime especially was that from the hard hits and blast from weaopons i.e. bumblebee fighting with barricade, prime getting hit with megatron's cannon shot andn prime falling down after catching sam, that none of their windows or windshields shattered or broke out or none of their car counter parts were dented in
