Let's list some of the major and more common misconceptions/pre-conceived notions/speculation that folks (myself included) had about AoE, even right up to the film's release. -Dinobots die -Dinobots talk lol -Dinobots are named lmao -Dinobot are Dinobots rotflmao -Grimlock is the rusty truck -More than 4 Dinobots -Slash in the film -Dinobots get significant screen time/film is about the Dinobots -Pagani is Hot Rod -Hot Shot, Hot Rod, Hot Rodimus or anything hot other than an explosion -Vector Prime -Hound is Bulkhead -Hound is Kup -Stunticons (in particular Motormaster the Argosy) -Ultra Magnus the Argosy -Scourge the Argosy -Nemesis Prime the Argosy -Cyclonus the Argosy -Cyclonus the anything -Anything other than Galvatron the Argosy -Galvatron is an ancient Transformer -Bumblebee actually talks -Sentinel Prime having a part in vehicon creation -Optimus using Sentinel's sword and shield -anything Sentinel Prime -Dino or pretty much any missing Bot from the last three films being explained -Sam or any human from the last three films being explained -That elusive and pesky Obelisk (lol tony) -SUDDENLY LOCKDOWN -Lockdown being a Decepticon -Lockdown working for Decepticons -Lockdown working for the humans -Lockdown lives til the next movie (see below) -Lockdown is the ultimate baddie. Come on. Trailers were a dead giveaway. -Nightship being Unicron's hand -Nightship being Unicron -anything Unicron -Nightship being a Transformer -a gigantic Transformer threat that the Autobots actually needed an army for other than the reality of Prime, Bee, and a human being able to slaughter everything -Lockdown delivering his "You were built" line to Galvatron. Come on guys. -Lockdown wouldn't work with humans -Silver Knight Optimus (kinda) -Gold Knight Optimus -British Knight Optimus -Drift is a traitor -Drift being a former Con (hey...it's not in the movie) -lots of resurrections -Stinger becomes Dino or vice versa -Stinger becomes Cliffjumper -E-jet is a Transformer -Sonic is a Transformer -Rally fighter is a Transformer -White camaro is a Transformer -Tessa is a Transformer and is a nod to Sari -Bingbing Li's necklace has significance -Evac is in it -dock scene in the trailers/commercials was not the final scene -Galvatron factory battle actually being a thing as portrayed in the Kreo set -toy packaging is accurate. Seriously? You haven't learned this one by now? It's over 30 years later. Anything I missed? I will add it to the list. Come on and eat some crow. I will admit I was wrong on a few things, like Sentinel, the Galvatron factory battle, and Lockdown not working with humans.
