    Haven't seen this posted yet, still working through the BluRay with subtitles on, crappy thing is none of the Cybertronian is getting translated, which I expected. What I didn't expect was the line below...its English, you can't miss it once you've heard it. Ill update if I find anymore lines

    Are you kidding me? Its English dude go rewatch the scene. So sorry I took 30sec out of your day to post something I've never seen before. The dvd just came out this isnt , "oh I just got home from the movies and I think I heard 'blah blah' " or speculation for that matter. If its old news, at least I got yah a pic :)

    It's Cybertronian that sounds english. Why would he say something so ridiculous anyway? BTW, there's a search function for a reason. Use it.

    The search feature on these sites suck and everyone knows it. I used it post, post and all that comes up is the thread about how someone wished he talked more. Talking to people like that isn't cool dude, by any means

    What's crackin' lil' bitches ring a bell?


    It's a Michael Bay movie, it doesn't surprise me. Especially after hearing Optimus' wtf-babble after his first DOTM transformation

    The latter was ridiculous (but humorous in hindsight). How that made the final cut though is beyond me.

    It was probably meant to be something in Cybertronian

    Yes, I'm afraid I'm going to have to label this with the same "subtitles got it wrong" stamp that Mixmaster's "Listen up!" from ROTF got.

    Reminds me of people trying to decipher Megatron's line in the first film when he arrives in Mission City. I figured Megs was saying:

    "Megatron! Coors, now."

    May I ask why people are having a difficult time making out "Driller-bot is thirsty" from that line? Read the subtitles and listen to the audio. It matches up word for word. It's garbled English, like Megatron referring to himself in the 3rd person while dropping down in Mission City. Also, you must consider the context of such a line, especially in this situation. Firstly, we all know that this bot is frequently referred to as the Driller. Secondly, "thirsty" doesn't make nearly as much sense as "hungry", but again, we're dealing with a lifeform with base instincts. It needs to subsist, so "thirsty" would be one of the operative words in this situation. Thirdly, considering some of the other nonsensical lines Transformers have uttered in this trilogy, a line like this isn't that far-fetched.

    Yeah, I'm gonna go with the "screwed up subtitles" thing here as well.


    It's not so much that the line can't be heard, but that that probably isn't what Shockwave is saying. If you take something that isn't in a language you speak, and someone writes something down that sounds similar to that foreign phrase, you're gonna hear what was written down. Here's a perfect example of this from Brentalfloss (note: this video may be NSFW, if only slightly.):
