    I kept missing it, but who was "ze little one" that Scalpel had ripped apart to restore Megs? Everyone assumed that they were going to use Brawl's treads and what-not, but guess that didn't happen.

    I also wasn't sure of who all was on the barge before they jumped overboard into the trench. Was it a Rampage clone?

    I don't think he was killed, his part were ripped. Therefore there is six contents :D .
    He scanned another vehicle and reappears in final battle.

    There's multiple Constructicons. That's why they're called 'builders' in the comics.

    I thought it was Scrapper but that doesn't make much sense.


    According to the size chart we have, Scrapper's bigger than both Mixmaster AND Rampage. So how could he be "ze little one?!"

    well the chart is for the combining constructicons. if scrapper combined he would be the guy that attaches to hightower to form the left hand.

    ^wtf, where did "i like pizza" come from?


    Ok, so where did Meg's tank treads come from then...? I was thinking ok when I thought it might be Rampage, but Scrapper has wheels...

    Even in the actual movie, Mixmaster was shorter than him. He was short enough to be lunging for his legs.

    No, it was a Scrapper.

    Though I wonder if he was a downsized model, since he was visibly smaller than everyone and was "ze little one." Yet in teh Final battle he looks about as tall as Starscream.

    OK! We get it! There are "classes" of CC's like classes in video games. The toy bios are pertaining to ALL of the classes (Rampage's smell, Mixy's knack for chemicals, Long Hauls carry stuff...etc) they might even be called different names like Demolishor/Scavenger Scrapper/ze leetil vun

    Brawl, maybe? After all, the Leader-Class ROTF Meg's weak left arm is a dead ringer for one of Leader Class Brawl's arms.


    Maybe ze little one was TOO little to get enough parts & they had to cannibalize the other corpses as well.

    The one who was sacrificed was a yellow Volvo excavator who can clearly be seen in the ship beside Mixmaster. My guess is they reused the robot mode of Scrapper to save on animation, or the original plan was to have Scrapper sacrificed but they changed their minds and showed the yellow Volvo excavator on the ship instead. The top view of the ship seems to indicate a Scrapper beside Mixmaster but during the close up, it is a yellow Volvo excavator beside Mixmaster.
    The yellow volvo excavator makes sense since it has tracks to give to Megatron.
    The movie people probably decided to avoid using Scrapper as the sacrifice bec. the same robot appears again later in the desert chasing Sam. Most viewers would assume the sacrifice died. They probably just wanted to avoid using too many Scrappers.

    True stuff. I kind of have to put some of the responsibility on ILM for the continuity error here.

    "ze little one" ripped apart under water was Scrapper (model used). The whole ship/underwater scene is TOTAL MESS. I noticed this right away when I first watched ROTF.

    When constructicons are first shown on the ship, there is Scrapper (yellow loader), Mixmaster (cement mixer), Longhaul (dump truck) and red Rampage (red bulldozer).

    Camera angle changes, Ravage flies out of nowhere and hits red bulldozer; parked next to him is Mixmaster and a yellow excavator with some pliers attachment (INSTEAD of yellow loader!!!!)

    Then zoom to decepticon symbol on Mixmaster's hood, yellow excavator behind.

    After that the excavator's arm with pliers is shown and a chunk of YELLOW bulldozer.

    Finally, cons plunge into the ocean - Scrapper, Mixmaster, RED Rampage and Longhaul.


    Under water Mixmaster and Longhaul rip apart Scrapper.

    And I swear I hear the Dr say "Wait" just after they tear him apart and when he sticks the spark chunk in Megs we can clearly see that he has already been rebuilt.

    Unfortunately the whole underwater scene is a mess.
