    I'm starting this eventually "stickied" thread early, because I've just noticed a small detail, after rewatching the official trailer.

    As Charlie is taking the audio cassete from it's jewel case, to put it into Bumblebee's tape deck, it's the "B" side! Get it? Bee side? OK.

    Blitzwing's character model is a reference to the G1 Seekers, notably Ramjet.

    I think it's a couple of scenes cut together, or a longer scene that's been cut right down. When they start transforming from car mode it looks like it should lead to the shot of them in robot mode when they were first revealed.

    It's quite funny if it is, given the Bumblebee toy line is trying to sell Hot Rod figures with the less-than-classic TLK design.

    If you look at the direction of the sun (light source in this scene, it's apparent they make a turn (perhaps 90° to the right), before they arrive to the human assembly.

    Another homage to the G1 cartoon, are the laser blasts in the Cybertronian scenes. Orange, and light blue dashes of light, criss crossing the scenery, just like in the Autobot city battle in the 86' movie.

    I must say, I've missed those space weapons, in the Bay films.

    Here's an interesting thing that crossed my mind...

    If this movie is the movieverse's "Generation 1", does that make the Bay movies more like "Generation 2"?

    Think about it...Optimus bears more than a passing resemblance to G2 Laser Optimus in those movies...

    I noticed that too, and I love it! The movieverse definitely could have used more laser weapons, I'm really curious why they switched to mostly Earth-like bullets and whatnot. Maybe Michael Bay's love of militaristic things? I guess an in-universe explanation could be that high-powered lasers stopped being economical after Cybertron's resources were depleted. Whatever the case, I'm glad to see them used here.

    Although I'm pretty sure lasers/energy weapons were used a couple times in the Bay movies. Off the top of my head, I can't recall where though.
