    First and foremost, this thread was originally created by Xaxis, an awesome member here, and over on the official Transformersmovie.com message boards, and then brought here with permission from him. Thank you so much Xaxis!!!

    So, in the interest of helping to keep misinformation from spreading and to help inform those who have just found out about the movie and may be discovering some of these for the first time, I present the following rundown.

    Open Invitation To Contributions: All members are welcome to contribute to this listing. Please PM me links with as much information about the video as you can find. Please try to research the clips and not just go off of descriptions at YouTube as they are often incorrect. I will add posted links to this post in order to keep it up-to-date.

We weren't sure if we had the skills to pull off some of the shots we wanted for the film so we came up with the idea of doing a test video first...For even more info you can also check out the interview I did for the bot collector website here...VW Transformer article."
