    Sh*t. I've never seen that concept art before. It's beautiful and that NEST interior is so much more sexier than the one in the movie.

    Also, yay for Ratchet. I wish we could've seen him doing something with a helicopter in the background.

    I think we should have a new thread for AOE like this, so that people won't open a new thread for every single thing they saw in trailers.

    I don't think anyone has pointed this out, when Optimus is preparing to deliver Shockwave the gut punch from hell his little ear things move. I don't know if that's a helmet or not lol

    Optimus gets kicked in the face quite a bit. Megatron in TF1 and 2. He gets kicked in the face by Sentinel I think, and Lockdown kicks him in the face in AOE.

    Did you know?

    That while Bay likes to show toilet humor and other inapropriate stuf in the TF movies, he always has some way to show that it's not right to have it be shown or done. he will try to counter it in some way. I say some of it...

    For example:

    In ROTF:
    when Leo is walking around with his pants on his knees, it is immediately followed by a guard saying that it's inapropriate to walk around like that and that he should be ashamed of himself.

    Devastator get's shot by a rail gun after showing his testicles

    in DOTM:

    one of the accueretta co-workers says to a latino female that it's inapropriate to dress in such revealing clothes (it's actually a quite realistic responce considering it's a bay movie)

    Showing something you like without promoting that you like it by immediatly saying it's wrong to show it :s

    Yup. It's pretty clear in the film that Ratchet is an accessory to Terracide.


    I'd recommend reading through the rest of this thread (or parts of it, it's gotten really long and people have posted a lot of repeated content over the years), there's a lot of subtle bits too.



    As for Dark of the Moon, this is almost certainly just coincidence, but Megatron shoots the Lincoln Memorial. Megatron's motto is famously, "Peace Through Tyranny", and Lincoln's assassin was heard yelling "Sic Semper Tyrannus!" (Latin for "Thus, to all Tyrants" before shooting him.
