    He can turn into a 4 foot tall pink Bumblebee and a flat screen monitor.

    Yes but that's G1, this is the movieverse. Before the first film they made a big deal out of the Transformers not mass shifting, so why have they dropped all that for Laserbeak?

    There is no way he could transform into all those things without mass shifting.

    Because they basically copped onto the fact that it's not a big frickin' deal.

    I didn't like it, but it wasn't the mass-shifting that bothered me. Probably my single biggest gripe with the movieverse is that they can just rescan any altmode they want. Somehow I can overlook that when they just stick with the one altmode.

    I don't exactly see how it's mass shifting when all the forms he took were relatively the same size...

    Also, he's an assassin. Why wouldn't an assassin that could turn into anything that's around his size and dimension exploit that ability?

    Everything with Laserbeak was within reason. Things like a tape recorder or a small handgun turning into 20 foot tall robots would have been ridiculously lame.

    Mass shifting on smaller scales like we've seen most people don't even think about.

    all the things he transformed into were relatively the same size (eg: he didn't change from a handgun to a 20-foot tall robot) so it's possible that his body has/creates cavities inside itself to allow transformation into larger or smaller objects, just because he LOOKS like a tv/laptop whatever it was, doesn't mean it was functional, and could have been completely solid, where as a larger object he may have been completely hollow inside.
