    So what were the plot holes everyone noticed?

    I myself didnt even think too much to figure many out, i was too IMAX'd out during the whole movie lol.

    I wouldnt call it a hole, but the matrix of leadership thing was sketchy to me since from the G1 era prime always had it in him when he was alive, it wasnt some "revival" tool.

    The movie isn't G1. People need to get past that.

    How could Mixmaster be firing his cannon mode when he was the head Of Devastator at the time?
    Where did Blackout 2 come from?
    What happened to the Matrix?
    WtfJolt?
    Where the hell did the Rail Gun come from?
    Where did Wheelie run off to?

    All I could think of off the top of my head.

    plot holes -

    the unexplained appearances of -

    Bonecrusher
    Blackout

    the unexplained 'no-show' of Barricade

    duplicate Constructicons

    ....and what was the gun Simmons called for? It looked a bit like Shockwave I thought!

    After getting home I realized that I didn't notice what happened to the Twins... were they killed by Devastator or did they just not show up again?

    See, I didn't think this was a plot hole. They showed a set of vehicles up on a hill. The vehicles that made up Devastator never had robot modes. The robots were a second set of vehicles.

    Jetfire wandering off after teleporting everyone to Egypt was kind of dumb.

    Also, Simmons called for a rail gun.

    Which I thought was funny because it reminded me of Metal Gear Solid. So essentially, Devs was killed by Metal Gear.

    I think Skids and Mudflap survived.

    But yeah what happened to Barricade?

    And was that Blackout or a different helicopter-bot? (I honestly don't remember if Blackout died in the first one >_>)

    And I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed a Bonecrusher-esque robot towards the end.

    constructicon clones everywhere was the thing that annoyed me the most.
    all the clones, actually (blackout/grindor, bonecrusher, etc.)

    They were badly beaten after the battle with Devs, but they were still alive. Devastator wasn't even used as a weapon, he was used as a giant worker bot, which was a total waste imo.

    And the vehicles they showed turning into him were the same exact ones the other Decepticons had while they were fighting in the ruins.

    Devastator as a whole, from beginning to end, was a totally wasted and messed up concept in this film. As awesome as he was, they totally dropped the ball with him...no pun intended.

    I see a lot of people just pegging Sideways as the new Barricade, since he was never named in the movie people can just draw the conclusion he reformatted off screen and was eventually taken out. Blackout was taken out in the first one and dropped next to Megs with all the others at the bottom of the ocean. And I never saw a Bonecrusher-ish bot, but I did see the Buffalo clear and present during the Decepticon attack.

    Yeah, the clones are a big one. I mean, I assumed it was Starscream's hatchling/protoform things, but they needed to add some dialogue to show that.

    General Morshower, he just pulled me off everytime he was onscreen because he was a different character and died in the first movie. That was Bay's fault, why not simply hire a different actor? It's distracting.

    If the AllSpark shard has been in the jacket for about 2 years, why did it not create tons of robots during that time ? Was the AllSpark shard sleeping all that time until Sam touched it ?
    Why did it take Wheelie 2 years to find Sam's AllSpark shard if he has been trailing Sam all the time ?
    Why did it take the Decepticons 2 years to locate the government's AllSpark shard and the location of Megatron ?
    After waking up, why did Megatron fly off into space immediately without even talking to anyone first on earth.
    Where did Megatron go in space ?
    Where did the hatchlings come from ?

    where was the fallen hiding?
    constructicons in more than one place at one time (clone excuse is not good enough since there was no explaination)
    where did the pretender come from? how was she created?

    The hatchlings, if you read the comic or movie, were related to an unused ending where Megs returns to the Nemesis and has them arise as his new army.

    Where the hell did Wheelie go?

    And while not a plot hole, is Chromia the lone Arcee?

    Actually, yes. That was pretty blatant in the film.

    My take on it is that the information was never broadcast or relayed until that weasel guy showed up and threw a wrench in everything, demanding to know what was up. As for Wheelie, when did they say he was there 2 years?[/QUOTE]

    Hatchlings are a good point. I believe Megatron went to Cybertron.

    in all honesty the hatchlings/protoforms were just a waste. All they did was take up movie space and make it hella confusing to figure out what robot was what in the last ruins fight scene....

    Also, which decepticon was the yellow one with the wrecking ball as sam and mikaela were jumping from the building?

    basically any resolution regarding any robot other than Prime, who is the only one we see at the end.
