    Doesn't look
    like Dropkick to me. Looks like a military helicopter.

    I think that out of these three trailers you can put the general outline of the beginning and the middle of the movie. The endgame was kind of revealed in one of the trailers already. However, there's really not much in terms of details. Like why are the Decepticons searching for Optimus Prime. Why is Bumblebee on Earth exactly? Is it the Allspark? Has Agent Burns met transformers before? And so on.

    Ah, yes. Thanks.

    There must be more to it than a simple takedown with chains. I doubt he's that brittle that he would just explode on impact.

    Yeah that would be really sad. And kinda awful of Bumblebee. Im just confused why you see his legs on the ground if you stop at the right moment in the explotion. Although in the first trailer you see a flaming helicopter fight Bumblebee so he could have survived

    I'm unsure if that helicopter was dropkick or sector 7 but when it blows up you can slightly see him so I think it's dropkick and I think he's still alive. I'm still wondering why they released 2 trailers on the same day.

    Welcome to the boards btw :D

    It’s only spoiling things for folks like us who can spot minor details, and put two, and two together. Which sucks when you can clearly see the fate of a character. General audience wise I don’t think they’ve spoiled much though.

    I would've left the decepticons on cybertron out of the trailers, maybe Prime too. But it doesnt matter since theres a definite chance we'll see Megatron..

    Only hardcore fans will go frame by frame and find stuff. Everyone else will watch it once and say cool and move on. Also yeah if you don't want to be spoiled DON'T WATCH THE TRAILER!

    International trailer spoils something major in the last frames before the title card at the end. Like it goes by fast but anyone who pauses to look at the explosion frame by frame in this age of screen caps and trailer analysis will easily see it

    I think the film is going to spoil the film. The only problem I have with the trailers is that for the first time, they're making me feel like not watching the film in the first place.
