    As somebody else previously stated here and beat me to it.
    Did anybody else notice that the greedy self centered naive jerk Lucas Flannery . That in death after getting whacked with Lockdown's grenade. He was just too stiff and metalic to be a 100% organic corpse.

    That was the point. His grenade turned everything to a petrified metallic form. Which is why I questioned, where did the Sonic go? It should have been caught in that blast and yet it was gone.

    Man that Sonic thing annoys the heck outta me the way it was hugely hinted at being a TF. That thing better show up in TF5 like, "Yo, I'm an Autobot guys." lol

    Yeah it annoys me too that it showed up with no driver, Shane even admits he's never driven that good before and then its gone when it should have been next to Lucas in that blast. And even GM confirmed it was a TF in their news article about the products in the movie.

    Likely cut from the music because of time/budget constraints I guess... then again if it was a Transformer we wouldn't have needed Shane...

    Well, it is getting a toy... even though Hasbro said there would only be on-screen characters.

    I was actually sad when that happened. Deaths like that (slightly unnatural) really get me for some reason. Poor guy isn't even human anymore... :(

    A little bit like Lot's wife being turned into a pillar of salt.

    That image also came to mind right away, though I dubbed Lockdown's weapon "a flash-metal grenade,' which I think puts it's usage to a "T."

    I figured the Sonic wasn't going to be a transformer, but every other person was so sure it would be.

    Though did anyone else roll their eyes when that Rally Fighter slammed into it and did no damage...yet it takes that jump at the end to crack the wheel...even though it sounds like Shane and Tessa have made that jump several times before?

    Reading that recent interview with Mr. Krueger has really shed a lot of light on this movie for me, with just one key point-

    The Dinobots weren't supposed to be in it. This movie was supposed to be the buildup, at least early on, for introducing them in TF5. But somewhere along the line it was decided that they would be tossed in. This is why we've got a serious case of two-movie syndrome between the first and second half.

    I could see the Sonic being a remnant of the earlier fourth movie, actually being a Transformer, and helping our heroes escape from Lockdown and CW as they pursue Prime across the country.

    I was hoping for it to be a Transformer, too- actually, hoping is the wrong word. They dropped so many hints in production, and there are so many teases in the movie itself- showing up at an angle that makes Shane invisible, the "I've never driven this good before!" quote, the lack of damage after a direct impact from a Rally Fighter...

    But I forgot all of that once they killed Lucas. My God, I stood up and applauded in the theater when he died. That scene felt vindicating for me- it's like Michael Bay was saying, "Yes, I realize you are tired of me making these absolute idiot characters who do nothing for the story and only ever mug the camera by standing in the way of the protagonist, so I'm introducing this one just to kill him as a promise that this will never happen again."

    It was glorious.

    So, if the Sonic is a Transformer, that means it lazed around and twiddled it's thumbs while everybody else ran all over creation fighting Lockdown.

    I really want Crosshairs to be present for this conversation.

    It makes absolutely no sense though. The car wasn't even there after the explosions. It's like it was intended to be a Transformer and they cut it later in post production.

    If they wanted to drop that plot point, perhaps they could've just shown the Sonic as a Transformer dead and cased in metal after the explosion?

    I agree it makes no sense.
