    I'm so glad I'm not the only one that noticed that. As the autobots now have Lockdown's ship it should mean that Ratchet's spark is on it & may return in a new body with a new name.

    Bwahahaha...that is an EXCELLENT observation!

    And you could also kinda count the sabotaging of his ship's anchors allowing time for Optimus to be rescued, lol.

    Good stuff.

    Bumblebee is the only one of the original five Autobots (from the first movie) to have not died. 1 died in each movie.

    Yes plus wouldn't it have made sense emotionally to kill Bee instead of Ratchet as Bee's story is now over due to Sam no longer being a character in the movie, would have finished his story nicely & the Autobots would still have a medic.

    I saw it the fist time I watched the movie. I didn't consider it hard to spot.

    Apologies then, as it took me 3 times watching the movie to notice it. The scene moves quickly, after all.

    I'm glad someone agrees. Knew I should have been a TF writer... Now we'll never see Ratchet at work & Bee will be in every movie I expect.

    One hard to spot thing I noticed was when KSI was sending Galvatron and Stinger after The Autobots, right before they order Galvatron to transform they show a screen showing how close they are to The Autobots, they list the names of Prime, Bee, Crosshairs, Drift and Hound on the screen, which meant that KSI must have already known about the existence of the latter three.

    I believe that they did know about all the transformers due to Attinger's deal & Lockdown. Plus Attinger had to cross off the list.

    Just wanted to consolidate all this right here because I just saw TF:AoE in a theater again last night and couldn't HELP but notice that Bay's signature "pinhole" camera shot at the start of the scene where Cemetery Wind moves in on Ratchet to facilitate Lockdown's first onscreen kill...begins with the drones-tossed-in-the-air flying past freight-unloading equipment PROMINENTLY including a hanging hook suspended above the dockyards.

    :D

    Random thing from me, and it might've been mentioned already, and hopefully I explain it well enough...

    During that awesome scene when Crosshairs jumps out and shoots the two ships, there was something about it that bugged me with how his parachutes opened. When he jumped off, wouldn't he still have been going in the same direction as the ship he jumped off of, just at a slower speed? So shouldn't his parachutes either billowed in front of him or just collapsed? Am I even explaining this well? I'm thinking of his inertia from jumping off the thing, and still moving in the same direction of it, unless it was one hell of a jump to completely change his direction into an opposite one...

    Like when you jump from a moving car, you're still going in the same direction of it roughly.

    Am I even making any sense to people? LOL

    In the final battle, he does it and nearly hits Sam.
