    I've seen enough "plot hole" threads to know that this will end with people listing every grievance they ever had as a "plot hole."

    But hell, new day, new thread. We can hope.


    ---------------------

    My assumption after watching the movie was that trans scanning can fix minor and cosmetic injuries, but can't fix major injuries or missing parts. Like, Ratchet couldn't use a trans scan to gain his leg back. Bee couldn't use it to repair a heavily damaged voice box. Optimus needed Cade to put the weapons tech back in.

    That was, at least, how I understood it.

    There are NO plotholes. You are a liar and a terrorist.

    The only explanation I can think of that they know what the Seeds are for. But still as they are apparently introduced via the 'creators' and no-one knows who they are it create something of a plothole.

    I've seen it twice now and can't find an answer.

    I have answered the flying Prime issue, it appears it comes through wielding the new sword as his forearms transform to take a Knight style and I suspect more of his body is upgraded too.

    Ya I totally agree, and he uses his new rocket boots to eject himself of off Grimlock when they first get into the city battle too. So its not like he just magically had them at the end.

    Biggest hole for me was how Shane's Rally car was introduced as a Transformer, and then they just ditch that idea after it's been established.

    I hated how Hong Kong was not accurately represented but the production seems to think that the very people located where they held the premiere at won't notice. Come on!

    Galvatron isn't alive. He's a carbon copy of Megatron's memories. He's just data in a shell. He can think like Megatron and act like Megatron, but it's not Megatron.

    When Prime first goes out to the desert with his Calling all Autobots" anouncement that he was back, it shows Drift, Crosshairs and Bumblebee, all driving together on the road, but when Optimus arrives, they are spread out and in various spots where they could not have been all together like that yet. The same scnene is used later when they head out to KSI.

    How did Optimus find out about the seed? And when you think about it there is no reason for the autobots to be in this at all. Optimus escapes and meets up with the Autobots. Why do they break into KSI again? Because Cade wants to know something?

    Also what happened to Crosshairs after he jumped off the drone ship? He just magically reappeared with Optimus, Hound and Drift, but in reality he would've landed on the ground, been separated from everyone else and we'd probably never see him again.

    Why do they break into KSI again? Because Cade wants to know something?

    Prime says "Autobots.. Lockdown is hunting us and the Humans are helping. We need to know why." Cade then says "I don't know why, but I might have an idea on who" They knew KSI was involved because Cade took one of the KSI Mini Drones at his farm and it had the footage of Ratchet being killed.

    How did Optimus find out about the seed?

    Brains told him about Megatron/Galvatrons plan to get the seed and detonate it in the biggest city so he could build a new army with it. The Autobots were about to leave but decided to get the seed before Galvatron gets it. Unless you are talking about how did he know about the seeds origin, If so.. who knows! just another mystery added to the Live Action films lol.

    Not true. When he gains full sentience in China he also liberates the drones and gives them independence too. This suggests a life giving ability, to give life you must have life hence Galvatron has found a way to function without a traditional spark.

    Probably got his para-glide caught on something... or his trench coat. ;)  :lol  j/k

    wait, didn't he end up with Optimus and Drift where the Dinobots were? I know Bee and Hound were with the humans fighting the transformium.

    When KSI visited Cade's barn to look for Optimus, why don't they have a 'transformer-finder' radar thingy, that the humans had in the previous films?

    Reason: so Prime could bust out of the ground to save Tess in dramatic fashion
