    Most memorable, hated and hilarious plot-holes

    Are you the type which loves to nit pick and pull apart story-lines and the sight of blatant plot-hole makes your blood boil? well if you are, you are clearly not alone on site like this and congratulations for still being with us as a transformers fan as transformers as a franchise is possibly one of the worst out there in every medium and most continuity's have at least one major plot error.

    Which ones stick in your mind the most? whether they make you laugh, scorn hatred or make you feel an odd affection for the naive and clueless storytelling

    "Rather than delete this anti-matter formula, I'm going to email it to chip chase, who's going to download it to a disc and then rip that disc apart with his bare hands."

    It's a good thing Chip Chase is goddamn hardcore.

    G1, Sunbow - Ruby crystals of Burma? That's not an energy source! Why would Sparkplug ever have been working mines in southeast Asia (in what is currently Myanmar)?

    My brother likes to speculate that he took a vacation there and couldn't pay for it. I tell myself they're leftover deposits of cystaline energon as seen in Beast Wars, which happen to be ruby-colored. But I still know it's really just an absurdly stupid story device.

    Even worse than plot-wholes are plot-halves. Man I hate those things.

    Plot-holes don't bother me as much as unresolved stuff.

    the scenes in "carnage in C-Minor" where they are obviously speaking english but yet they need a translator to translate what they are saying into english...

    The Constructicons building Megatron and then later being converted to his cause by the Robosmasher.

    The entirety of ROTF. It's like an episode of the G1 cartoon was made into a live action blockbuster - and that's not a good thing.

    "Hi, my name's Wheeljack, and today I'll be building creatures more powerful than any Autobot in our entire team. I'll also make them a little stupid, and their leader resent authority figures. There is absolutely no way this could ever go wrong. Ever."

    SOME TIME LATER

    "Hi, my name's Optimus Prime, and today I will be creating some Aerialbots to take down Megatron because no Autobot can fly. Except Powerglide. And Skyfire. And Sideswipe. And every single one of us in the opening episodes. Also I'm going to forget to teach them why being an Autobot is a good thing, because I'm not so great at this whole leadership shindig."

    SOME TIME LATER

    "Hi, my name's Ironhide, and I'll be dying today courtesy of Megatron's fusion cannon. I have been shot by said cannon before several times, but apparently I only just noticed that it has the power to kill me."

    SOME EVEN MORE TIME LATER

    "Hi, my name's Beast Machines. I - what?"

    Most memorable: Every instance of a TF running with it's legs over a great distance when they can transform into cars and planes.

    Most Hated: Transfromers Energon

    Most Hilarious: "Overload" button from B.O.T.

    Wait, I don't get it, how is BM a plot hole? If anything it took continuity too literally.

    Can't remember the episode name (G1), but the Autobots had one hour to get from the US to Africa, and they DROVE there. :lol
