    Yes, you are indeed right.

    Shame on you Mr. Bay.

    LE GASP!!!

    I'm pretty sure Crosshairs does though... In the background...
    Imo they're pretty much in robot mode!

    Don't worry though, As in the event of TF5 they will undoubitly ahow it at some point so the transforming render exists.

    Drift's Helicopter Transformation was really sweat though!

    There's a nasty habit of just dropping TFs with no explanation, so I won't expect all of them to show up again.

    ^^^^ the way I see it: Transformers being dropped between DOTM and AOE is justified through Lockdown and Attinger hunting them down. But I do agree that the original trilogy dropping Transformers deserved some sort of explanation.

    Seriously? Hardly any Autobot transformations in this movie!

    That's a little disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing Crosshairs and Hound's. So does that mean that most of the transformations in this movie are that new breaking down into cubes thing?

    I'd rather have less on screen transformations if it means more robot screen time and dialogue honestly

    Yeah, none of the new Autobots Transformed on screen. They just appeared in robot mode when the scene cut to them.

    IIRC didn't Drift transform into his helicopter form when Optimus showed up in the desert?

    I was really annoyed at the movie for that, I was thinking in my head, "Well, that's what you get with simplified streamline designs". Although I can't complain at the part where Optimus transformed from his G1 truck mode, many times actually.

    Watching them transform before our eyes is part of the dazzle. Still get a kick out of watching Devs combine. Bay left out alot of little things we love this time.
    No Marky Mark singing you got the touch and backstories to name some.

    Incorrect, kinda. He begins to transform when the Autobots return before the Battle of Chicago. Que is right next to Mirage, who then cartwheels in front of him, blocking the view of the rest of his transformation.

    While unfortunate it's not unexpected. The only Autobots other than Optimus Bee to get full screen detailed Transformations are what Ironhide Jazz and Sideswipe?

    Ratchet never did (his first transformation in TF1 was offscreen for most of it, he didn't transform in ROTF, he was offscreen again in DOTM and his transformation is quick and interrupted in this film). Wreckers and Que never did Dino only barely gets his TF shown, and heck even Sentinel Prime is running off screen for both of his transformations to vehicle mode and off screen and blocked for most of his to robot mode one.
