    So I'm wondering... there was a throwaway line in the movie about the transformers having a 3D hologram shell, or something to that effect. I think Tyrese says it when they're taking about the picture he took of Blackout in the first action sequence. So is that how they change appearance? If that's the case, what's with all the moving parts? Couldn't they just lay down and put their tires out, rather than doing all that reconfiguring?

    He said it was an invisible force field, not cloak. It was so they didnt get hurt, not for changing appearance.

    No, he was actually talking about an invisible sheild that was around him. The only holograms that I saw that they had were the passengers.

    I think his quote was, "It looks like it's cloaked by some sort of invisible force field or something."

    That's how I remember it. The game showed the change from Proto to earth form. It is pretty cool actually.

    Maybe cloaked doesnt mean like, "invisible stealth" like from Metal Gear, but rather cloaked as in, "covered" or "draped over," or its wearing a "cloak" of force field.

    And to take that an extra step. If his shield hid him from radar it would cause a Blackout on the radar.

    Hence his name. Blackout.

    So what about Frenzy sneaking off of Air Force One? Did nobody from the police or government really not see a 5-6 foot steel man walking over to a police S281?

    He wasn't that tall. They showed him behind some officers standing up to their knees
