    By main event I mean the last heroic sequence of the movie. He really got the spotlight in ROTF, totally bitching around Megatron and the Fallen, which makes me wonder - are they going to do something else for TF3? In the first movie, yes Optimus fought Megatron, but in the end wasn't the conquering hero - Sam was. In ROTF, Optimus got all the glory.

    So for the third installment, do you expect a repeat of ROTF with Optimus striking the final blow, or will they be consistent and try to surprise us again?

    I sincerely hope they don't try to do anything cute and change it up again. I want Optimus to have the honor of ending the trilogy by his own hand. Especially with all the speculation that the big fire truck might be Sentinel Prime and might be some sort of superior to Optimus (god, please no) I am concerned that he may steal Optimus' thunder. That would really be taking a dump on the G1 inspired vibe of the movies, and I don't want that to happen. I don't want anybody to be the boss of Optimus Prime, save for maybe Primus/Cybertron.

    I think since it's the last movie they will have Prime be the hero because he's the leader.


    You never know, Bumblebee might steal the screen time some more...:confused2

    No. Not Optimus.

    Ratchet will duel Megatron on top of a pile of Decepticon and Autobot carcasses. And Ratchet will win.

    And fix Bumblebee's voice.

    I'm ok with the idea of Sentinel Prime being Optimus's superior, if they do it right. Maybe give him a little more of an Alfa Trion roll. Kind of being there to guide him, rather then command. Especially if that security guard's rumor turns out to be true.

    Truthfully, I kind of get the feeling the big hero of TF3 is going to be Bumblebee. Maybe even a combo of Bee and Sam.

    IMO, it doesn't matter if Optimus ends the final conflict or not, as long as he's the one who takes down Megatron (if taking out Megs and ending the action for some reason aren't the same). Anyone else ending Megs would be a total disservice. First movie I can understand because you knew from the second Megatron died he'd be back. But if he dies "for good" this time, there's only one who should have the honor of accomplishing that.

    i want this movie to be an emotional roller coaster. like seriously, it`s the finally and it should bring man tears like Toy Story 3 did when we thought all the toys would die in the fire pit (and the ending too)

    Prime will of course get some good combat again, but I hope that we get a larger focus on weapons. Some long range shooting would be a nice break from the rock-em sock-em robots that the movieverse seems to be so fond of.

    Actually, I seem to recall quite a few shoot outs in both films.

    But Toy Story 3 and Transformers are two completely different kinds of movies...

    Naw, dawg. Transformers is about an interplanetary struggle for the ultimate fate of the universe. Toy Story is literally about toys.

    The end will be something like the Twins teabagging Megatron to death.

    Prime will be too busy with Shockwave because how can he fight something with no face.

    You need to keep it movie related so it will be funnier. Something like:

    Does Micheal Bay like blowing stuff up?

    Does Sam say no a lot?

    Does Ironhide have a thing for weapons?

    Let Optimus go out in a blaze of glory battling Megatron. Entirely obliterate them both so there's nothing left to bring back to life.

    Then at the end of the film have a blue ghostly image of Optimus appear to Sam and go 'Use the Force, Luke'. And Ghost Megatron can haunt Starscream while he's on the toilet. "I can smell you cyber-pooping...".
