    Come to think of it how come we never see their weapons protrude out like we see during the Middle East strike or the highway chase?

    Cus they have straight up weaponized vehicle modes (despite what the toys lead us to believe).

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're just vehicles with weapons stacked on them rather than the "stealth mode" Bumblebee has.

    their weapons protrude out during Chicago they start firing at Shockwave, they just can't put them back in. In other words they aren't robots in disguise when those nascars come rolling up you know you have trouble.

    You see them transform before they kill the decepticon fighter pilot. Its just obscured by the smoke.

    I'm wondering why Hasbro made deluxe Roadbuster non-weaponized, if the wreckers never appear without their weapons? :crazy:  They could have just drilled some Mechtech ports and given him topspin's guns.

    It seemed to me, this movie had the least in transformations from vehicle mode to robot mode of all the movies. I can't seem to remember a robot mode to vehicle at in the movie either.

    Costs!! That, and I think that it was the thought from Hasbro to have you get all the sizes. If you wanted weaponized modes AND non-weaponized modes, you would have to get all of them. Cyberverse, Deluxe, and Human Alliance. It seems the pattern is 1 regular 2 weaponized at each scale...but that COULD change when we see deluxe Leadfoot and HA Topspin.

    Well you had Sentinel turn into Firetruck, Bumblebee transform to bot mode then transform to vehicle mode again with Sam still inside. The Dreads crash transform scene. Mirage Transform twice and more.

    If it was obscured then its likely a shadow trick of them being crouched down so it looks like a transformation.

    They kept them featured in the trailers, you'd think they would have put more effort into that.

    They had no problem showing Mirage, Sentinel, the Dreads, random decepticons in the Washington DC night scene...

    Hell Megatron got a pointless transformation in the middle of a desert.

    Did Que get transformation?

    I know...I bought an extra Topspin and popped off the little mechtech covers off of Roadbuster and gave him two of Topspin's guns. So with those on the side, the missiles in the bumper extended, and the two guns on the side...he looks pretty nice!

    Barely, you see the start of his transformation before Sam's walks in the way of the shot. I feel cheated out of see a decent Quejack transformation, ahah.

    I'd guess it's because they didn't have accurate CG models of the Wreckers' vehicle modes. Those were very complex, several orders of difficulty higher than a (relatively) stock vehicle of any design.

    Honestly, some of the other things I care about as little as seeing the Wreckers transform are Low-carb diets. Michael Moore. The Republican National Convention. Kabbalah and all Kabbalah-related products. Hi-def TV, the Bush daughters, wireless hot spots, 'The O.C.', the U.N., recycling, getting Punk'd, Danny Gans, the Latin Grammys, the real Grammys. Jeff, that Wiggle who sleeps too darn much! The Yankees payroll, all the red states, all the blue states, every hybrid car, every talk show host! Everything on the planet, everything in the solar system, everything everything everything everything everything everything - eve - everything that exists - past, present and future, in all discovered and undiscovered dimensions. Oh! And Hugh Jackman.

    Because Bay wasted the money for the Driller scenes instead of displaying the real TFs with better screens.
