    Anyone else find it peculiar that those marbles Ravage vomits are about the size of common marbles, and yet when they amalgamate to form that knifey thing, they become absurdly thin? Unless they broke down to an even smaller level.

    who? Surely not me. I'm just pointing out a peculiarity. It's not even a complaint. Get off the bandwagon!

    Yep! Great post those things made little sense. I am still trying to figure out what they were trying to do there.

    This movie is incredibly bad!

    You might be right. I've only seen it once, and that's how I remember them. I could be wrong.

    I just got back from viewing number three. They are indeed about the size of a good marble or ball bearing.

    The bot we are talking about is apparently called "Reedman" and is voiced by Frank Welker.

    Mass is the amount of matter in an object. That doesn't change. Their shape however, can change. Take two identical pieces of Play-Doh with a mass of 50g each. Notice how you can squeeze one piece into a flat pancake, while you can compress another into a smaller sphere?

    Yeah, I hated that stupid Ravage blade thing... when he transforms, it's no needlessly long and complicated, like they're trying to hard to impress me when I would have rathered just see Ravage bust inside the base and steal the thing himself.

    yeah not sure the problem here, the marbles TRANSFORMED DUH!! into a flatter longer piece.... The thin profile was cool, how it was hidden IN PLAIN SIGHT because it was so thin and was only visible when it shifted from to one side...

    Movie didn;t ROCK and there were plenty of holes but still FANTASTIC to see these toy robots on the big screen!!!

    i thought they constructicons ripped out the spark of another constructicon to revive megatron?

    did ravage use the sparkshard to reassemble megatrons damaged parts into the tank version?

    Not so much mass-shifting as it was morphing. And yeah, i could have done without it.

    I'm pretty sure they used the parts of the constructicon for megatron, then the shard to revive his own spark.

    Hey, what if you're the one that has no standards? Not accusing you of that - but your same logic can be used against you. Can you not just let the guy voice his opinion? You are no longer even talking about his opinion anymore but you're talking about him as a person. I would suggest you stop attacking other people and just enjoy the movie a few more times because you obviously liked it. And I am glad that you did - but please allow others that weren't happy to express their opinions. Thank you.

    They were tiny balls that morphed together and in doing so, thinned out to form a functioning robot. Personally I thought that scene was pretty cool.

    they seemed bigger than marble sized balls, to me.. maybe i need to see it again.. the balls just seemed to transform into a little bot-shaped thing, and then they all morphed n merged, until i lost track of wat was happeing :D  but yeah, i doubt its mass-shifting..
