    Who else noticed that some specific transformers had their own unique sound when they transform? For example: That sound Megatron makes whenever he transforms, even when he has those different alt modes. Also, Starscream has that specific high pitched metallic sound.

    I really can't think of any more. Jetfire had a pretty specific one, and Dino's on the highway was very different.

    most transformations were just metal-on-metal.

    Optimus has a distinctive wheel-sound [of the rubber braking] every time he transforms, Laserbeak has a high-tech-sounding transformation, Ironhide has a very silent one [you can barely hear anything].

    You barely even get to see it though lol. It was like Barricade practically poofing into car mode when he started persuing Bumblebee.


    What about when he flipped over that chick in the middle of the street in Mission City? Constant loud humming (sounded a lot like a G1 transformation noise). Plus, I don't know if this counts but when he clashed into the dreads, you hear that big bang noise. Sounds fucking badass in surround-sound.

    It's true though that most of the bots have their own unique transforming sound. Megatron's in DOTM almost sounds violent; as if he's in a bit of pain during all the folding, breaking, etc. like Jetfire in ROTF. Also, someone pointed out that the bots have unique walking sounds. Take Starscream for example. Kinda reminds me of an AT-AT.

    Hell yeah. When he swoops in-between the skyscrapers and crashes to the ground, transforming in midair, is still one of my favorite scenes in the whole trilogy.

    I also like Starscream's transformation sound out of all the others.

    The Dreads also had very cool transformation sounds. And I'm referring to the part when they transform in slow-motion after the collision.

    Bumblebee has his own unique sound, several high-pitched pings over roughly the same noise, similar to the noises he makes when he "talks."

    Optimus also has a unique noise, sounding like a bunch of hydraulics.
