Blackout is the first transformer seen transforming....Starscream is the last. The Autobots...specifically Prime & Ratchet are kinda goofy...innocent..kinda like children. Optimus Prime is also MUCH MUCH more tame in this film than in it's sequels. The Decepticons were pretty badass specifically Frenzy who got alot done for such a little bot. Foreshadowing by Ironhide? After Mojo pees on his foot he exclaims something along the lines of "that's gonna rust!" Optimus Prime chastising Ironhide about wanting to kill humans and as we saw in the TF4 trailer..Optimus Prime kills humans...never thought I'd type that. the order in which we are introduced to the Autobots by Optimus Prime (Jazz, Ironhide, Ratchet) is the order in which they are killed. Blackout arrives at dusk aka when it gets dark/black out. Blackout's attack on the base & Sam buying Bumblebee both occur on May 30, 2007. Kinda crazy...the first hour of the film really is Bumblebee & Frenzy..the other autobots don't arrive until a little over an hour and Starscream & Megatron don't appear until 90 minutes in! Kinda crazy. Also, I do feel like Starscream was meant to fire at Mega...the way the film was cut it certainly alludes to it...the Starscream we get in 2 & 3 is much less aggressive & subservient than TF1 Starscream. There's actually a massive amount of human casualties in the trilogy..it just happens so fast and isn't bloody that it's kind of understated but think about it..Megatron is unfrozen and instantly slaughters hundreds of humans...and when Mega and Prime go through that building..easily 100s of more dead at least...and that's just part 1..things get much darker for the humans in 2 & 3..kinda cool they are going in the direction they are..im excited Overall TF1 is much more clean and innocent compared to 2 & 3...it feels like each TF film gets darker and more violent...which i'm totally cool with, just an observation. Barricade & Scorponock do not participate in the Climatic Battle in LA o ya and Megatron says to prime something along the lines of "Then join them! In Extinction!"...heavily rumored that Galvatron is revived by humans in essence "joining" them in Age of Extinction. And this is really cool, I always thought Megatron's ALT form in part 1 was a cybertronian ship but apparently it's some alien ship he scanned while looking for the allspark pre-part 1..i think that's pretty neat.
