    I'm still flabbergasted by the fact Bumbleebee has a built in Atari gaming system.

    Fixed.

    Also they do so many leaps that pause in mid air (in regular motion) and then rocket down towards the ground faster than physically probable I've lost count.

    Arcee is the worst offender.

    1 .Arcee getting shot by Megatron in Darkness Rising, Pt.5, drifting off into space.

    2. ALL the flashbacks in Predatory. Animators did a spectacular job at showing fear realistically, a plus for the disorientating camera angles and overall delivery. Hope we get some of that in Sick Mind.

    3. The beginning of Speed Metal, showing a great view of some city lights.

    4. After the intro of Masters and Students, putting a lot of focus on Prime's facial expressions gave us a lot of emotion. Ratchet's background silent reactions completed the scene.

    I'd list some more, but I don't have anything else in mind currently.

    Breakdown lifting Bulkhead over his head while paused in the air before chucking him into the picture hard enough to completely wreck it.

    I wonder how much force is required to do what Arcee and Prime did, stop a train and kick someone through pine trees?

    Optimus catching that missile in Deus Ex Machina was rather cool.

    Although I thought that missiles were supposed to explode on contact...contact including catching them. :wink:

    Not if the detonator thing is only on the tip. Prime caught the missile by it's body.

    Prime can catch as many missiles as he wants in my book.

    Wheeljack breaking a guard's neck with his feet, and then taking on Starscream and an army of Vehicons, before taking on himself, all in the space of a few minutes.

    Granted, that's more in the line of stamina than outright strength, but it's no less impressive.

    I think Prime and Ratchet taking on Megs' army of the dead could qualify as a fantastic feat of physical endurance, especially Prime who had to fight Megs as well on the Space Bridge!! :thumb

    That little pause was so cool. Physics tends to disagree with things like (and most of the fights in the animated Justice League series), but that's where the fun comes in! :D  That pause and his little skid-to-a-halt was so cool.

    :lol  This.

    But yes, I will say that the Transformers do seem to demonstrate a great deal of physical strength. Which makes sense. They are giant alien robots. I want my Optimus Prime to be able to stop a train, or catch a missile. I want Decepticons to throw giant 20 ton pillars across a football field. Even smaller 'bots like Arcee; I want her to kick Decepticon tail pipe through a grove of trees. I like my Transformer fights to be awesome. :bay
