    NOTE: Direct if there's already a similar topic

    Were any of you got disappointed for not getting what you hyped about and wanted to see them in the movie?

    Here's my share:

    1- Shockwave - the main villain. I really wanted this scenario. I thought they would make him based on the Marvel comics when Shockwave was the Starscream of the comics instead of Megatron's right-hand Con in the cartoon. I really think it would've been better if he and Sentinel switched roles. And let's not forget the Corey Burton/David Warner voice debate.

    2- James Avery - An awesome voice actor and better as an actor. I was really hoping he'd be in the movie. When I heard Leadfoot's voice, I thought that was James Avery using his Shredder voice. Waited till the credits -> disappointment.

    3- Silverbolt - I don't know if it was meant G1 Silverbolt or BW Silverbolt, I'll go with the G1. An Aerialbot. Why didn't we get any flying Autobots in the movies? Why is it always in the games or figures? And he was one of earliest characters to be named to have in the movie.

    4- The Heroic Sentinel Prime. Optimus and Sentinel. The old and the current Prime. Fighting side-by-side against the Decepticons? Didn't happen.

    5- Leo Spitz. I liked in ROTF and I really wished he'd come back in DOTM. But I guess the writers couldn't fit him in the plot.

    6- Skids & Mudflap. In the comic, novel and toys, but didn't get the final cut.

    That ROTF was good, which is a shame because alot of people believed those few reviews.

    The Jeep Wrangler named "Roll Bar" that we saw pics of was not in the movie.

    Shockwave having a prominent role in DOTM - didn't happen.
    Decepticons being deadly - Didn't happen.

    Michael Bay being at the top of his game - Didn't happen.

    Guys... you know I meant the things and lies we heard about during the production of the movie that everybody knows, right? Stuff like the ones I mentioned? This is not a joke thread.

    Skids and Mudflap being in the movie, surprisingly. They could have made good fodder for Sentinel Prime.

    - the fake script by Ehren Kruger, which involved time travel to the 1980s
    - Silverbolt to be voiced by James Avery
    - no Megatron-Optimus team up

    That did happen....in the comics.

    Also gotta go with no James Avery and Bill Faggerbakke, I swear Faggerbakke was Topspin but was cut for no good reason other than to give the blue bots no screen time.

    NO Toilet Humour in DOTM.

    Shockwave being the big bad (though Sentinel is fantastic, Shockwave should have done something more than what we got.)

    The Xanthium as either Omega Supreme or Astrotrain.

    TF4 as the Reboot.

    That Silverbolt, Rollbar, Skids, and Mudflap were going to be in DOTM.
    That Shockwave was going to be a major character.
    That the Superfund truck was going to be a Decepticon (yes, I know it was in there but he didnt do anything)
    DOTM was going to have less human involvement.

    Didn't see the Aerialbots at all was really pissed me off. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to see it. Damn you Micheal Bay!

    Only thing I was glad that was not true: the twins returning. And if they were in the movie, I wanted them in it only to watch them die, hopefully an excruciating death too.

    You really believed that? I knew it was fake the moment I read it. It sounded absurd and I never really saw it as credible.
