    Just finished watching ROTF on FX. I noticed that right after Optimus' famous "GIVE ME YOUR FACE" line, he rips out the Fallen's "Heart" or chest or whatever. That chest component looks awfully similar to the fuel cell that Optimus finds when he cuts off the driller's tendril. Did ILM recycle the CG?

    For one thing, it's called a spark, and no, the Fallen's spark was not used to power a ship that crashed 40 years before he died

    Yeah, I know that. I'm just figuring the effects guys got lazy and recycled that piece of CG.

    Guys, you're missing the point i'm asking. I know they're not RELATED to each other, i'm saying they just look alike, as in terms of special effects.

    No. None of us have missed the point. The thread title needs to be changed. Most people are answering just that bit and the answer is "No, The Fallen's spark is not the Ark's fuel cell." You're getting pissy about it when it's something you should've thought through.

    Had you asked "Is ILM Recycling CGI?" then you'd have received the appropriate responses you seek. Can't blame us for giving you the correct answer even though the question is wrong.

    First, change the thread title.
    Second, the fuel core was shiny. The Fallen's spark core was green.

    And it's way smaller and a different design. (though similar, being a sphere with wires attached)

    He shoved it in his mouth, which I guess smashed it.

    You know how easy it is to change visual properties on a render of a 3D model, right?

    No, it's an engine part from the Ark, taken from the ship went the Russians went to the moon, where they thought it would be an ample fuel source, and tried to harness that power at Chernobyl, which, in film, is supposed to be the cause of the Nuclear melt down there in '86.
