    Did the final battle look like it did in the december teaser in the early cut?

    Funny enough, no. It was more like what we have now. Maybe that teaser version was made for the teaser alone to draw out hype? It was fun to watch a majority of that battle with Noah fighting in a foam suit lol.

    Thanks for sharing, based on this and movie I watched I'm glad the final cut is what it is.

    I think the movie made enough of a point that Scourge wasn't doing this entirely willingly.

    The only elements I wish were kept are:

    Thanks for posting this it’s really interesting to get an idea of what could have been a movie with a very different tone with the transit scene.

    Doesn’t sound like anything of value was lost though.

    That prime intro sounds awsome hope it makes the extended cut or blueray extras as rumoured they definitely could have cut a few human scenes in the first 1/3 of the movie and kept this fight if needed to stay under 2 hours.

    Having finally seen the film, I can finally read your summary. Thank you for posting all this! The wait must have really been excruciating!

    Overall it seems like they made the film significantly better. Some things could have been kept. I really liked the movie but the last act did feel a bit rushed, and it seems like a few minor things you mentioned could have been left in. Mainly the only thing I really wish they'd kept was the transit scene in the beginning. My guess is they didn't want to confuse audiences by mentioning too many factions and lore things, so they decided to leave decepticons and predacons out entirely. But the frustration you mentioned from Optimus would have been good to see more explicitly, plus that bit about the ship being blown up. I'm really glad they improved Mirage, as I was dreading him being a main character, but in the finished film I really liked him actually. Scourge was actually better to me as he was in the final film, as opposed to a tortured soul. He was a good mix of "I relish hurting others" and "I want to accomplish my goals". He wasn't stupid or incompetent.

    Thanks again for the summary. I know it won't happen but it would be so cool to get a director's cut with some of the scenes added back in! Too bad it costs millions to render the robots.

    I don’t even know where you’d go following that ending. Optimus as Nemesis again?

    Damn a lot of those scenes should've been kept. Do you remember if there was a scene of Prime ramming into Scourge in vehicle mode? I was the most angry about that getting filmed but not used

    That wasn't in my cut either! I was expecting them to add it in the offical release, but I guess we'll never get the context of that awesome scene

    I want the best of both here, some of the changes work much better but a lot of the removals I wish were kept. No Rhinox voice is saddening. No Transit, but at least more Stratosphere.

    So was the whole Sector 7 thing someone being misinformed then?

    It sounds like a lot of the changes were for the better, IMO.

    I’m still holding hope half of what was mentioned was finalized at least and only ditched before final release to save time. Hope we see some of it at least in the home releases. Can we like…ask Caple bout it? See if he’s willing to get the stuff that was removed added in? It worked with Snyder didn’t it-

    I find it kinda interesting how Nightbird was explicitly mentioned as being an ex-Decepticon way back when we first started getting info about this movie, but that just never comes up.
    I have to imagine that it was intended to be a more major thing very early on, but that they ended up just dropping it because, well, it was kinda unnecessary.
