    Thanks to anyone who went through the trouble of finding a copy of the music video for us to watch. Good work, it's much appreciated. :) 
    As for the video, I was kind of expecting more after the awesome that was the New Divide music video clip, but that's just me. Maybe it's cause I got so hyped up about this video while scouring the net for watchable versions.
    Megatron transforming was beast though!

    Alright, they pulled the cape/cowl/hood off well. Thank goodness. Good to see they've been trying to make their animations more fluid. That Megatron transformation is one of the best we've seen.

    Agreed. I think it's the only Megatron transformation that didn't happen in the blink of an eye too, if I recall correctly.

    Agreed...I STILL say the most epic transformation from either movies was at the end of TF1 when megatron was in Alt mode, and he came Straight down spinning, and transformed, and landed on his feet, and the slammed the ground...That is possibly my most favorite part in both movies thus far

    I seen the same. Megatrons trasformation looked cool, but I noticed the parts like, caterpillaring into a lump of shit, then megatron stands up...I more prefer to SEE the truck parts move and become the robot..not just a CGI fuddling of parts then the bot stands up...it wasnt BAD..I would just rather see less of the "gazzillion parts moving" and more of seeing the parts that made up the truck move to robot mode.

    I dont think you can keep your eye on a specific part and watch it move to robot...its more like a blackhole spinning all the parts into a robot..

    Still cool....

    I doubt they have to recut the video, they barely show anything. Everyone knows megatron is alive this time. The MTV streaming thing does get issues.

    so...why is it a world premiere...if only americans can watch it?


    although thanks to the power of friends in far off places, i have managed to watch the music video now, ive got to say, and this is as a long long time linkin park fan, i miss the old LP :p  too slow for my liking, but the music video was still pretty awesome

    i immedietly went to fondle my voyager DOTM figure after it had finished, it looked so badass, he had a really calm aura around him,and his transformation showed it, it doesnt seem like the angry impulsive megatron from the last 2, and it does seem like he is using his cloak to cover his shame and stuff, maybe we will be getting a less rash megatron this time around

    i was wondering, since i know there are some...giffers? on this site if someone could make a quick gif of the megatron transformation, but yeah awesome music video

    Youtube is your friend guys!

    Anyways, it looks like some effects needed a retweaking, but then again God knows when was this prepared. Liked Megatron's apparence, and also the brief look we get to see his face. And Sentinel Prime, YAY!

    Saw the vid. Pretty decent. I do prefer the LP from their early days. Not a bad song, as I think it fits the movie.

    I don't know, Barricade's transformation when he began his pursuit of BB got applause from the crowd in the theater (at least where I was)

    Agreed, however it may be the additional FX in the vid that don't make it look clear. It may look a little better in the movie since its greyed out here and you will be able to see the component textures and color difference in the mode change. The cape in the wind was a nice touch.

    I'm taking a guess that these are actual 'clips' from the movie. If so, I wonder if this sequence of him transforming is when
    he encounters the elephant in Africa and kills it as shown in the movie adaptation.
    Also the short clip of Shockwave matches the official pic that USA Today released a few minutes ago.

    Is it me or is nobody else shocked with epicosity that we finally got to see Sentinel Prime's CGI model in action?! I know it was brief, but still c'mon, none of the trailers even showed him (same with Megatron, awesome)!

    Btw after staring at a freeze frame and comparing

    BB is indeed punching Soundwave as to move him out of his way . You can tell by the thighs They have the SLS's Gullwing Doors on them.

    I really like the song! After reading the DOTM novel, the song is very fitting. I also really liked all of the DOTM footage!

    I don't care how "fitting" the song is, I just didn't like it. It's quite forgettable IMO. But Megatron sent waves of awesometude through me that rocked my body like a seizure.
