    The same way Prime leaves the planet, their travel pod.

    I didn't say that Dino should be onscreen or voiced onscreen, only that it would be in poor taste to kill him after his voice actor passed away. Having Bots like Dino, Swipe and maybe even Topspin or Roadbuster make it off planet is far more believable and creative then the 'lets just kill everybody off from the previous films' approach, in my opinion.

    Some ships were probably salvaged from Chicago.

    Dino (a.k.a. "Mirage") actually dies in the novelization. Which, IIRC, actually was significantly better than DOTM itself despite being the same plot.

    And let's be realistic: just because it's your opinion doesn't mean it's the same opinion of those actually making the movie.

    Given what I know, you're actually close to the truth.

    And that's not what happens at all, though.

    To be honest I don't think we will ever see the other wreckers again. They were not all that good character wise. Looked cool but there really isn't much else Bay would have done with them. I think they had the same gate as Leadfoot. Ratchet was killed but there was left a way to bring him back if really wanted.

    Dino probably met the same fate and by just letting us assum he died is the best way to handle his disappearance as killing him on screen or saying he dies would have for sure brought the hatters out. And it would have been thread after thread about how Bay has no respect for the guy who voiced Dino or the Son of Ferrari which Dino was named after.

    Now I really could see Swipe making it out alive and possibly coming back in the next movie but I'm not holding my breath on it.

    We see the humans used TF bodies to make new ones so who's to say there were not still Con fighter craft still laying around or in other countries that some of the Bots could have found and left Earth? We know not all the Cons or all there ships were sucked up at the end of DOTM and it was only those in the immediate area of the control pillar that were sucked up.

    Not everybody reads the comics, nor considers them actual movie canon. I don't and never will.

    Did I say my opinion was the end all be all fact of the matter? I repeatedly said it was MY OWN interpretation of what we were given. It was never said that every single Bot and Con were definitively killed. There were no specific names (except for Ratchet and Leadfoot), and only 2 CONFIRMED deaths were ever shown. For me, that leaves open the possibility that some Bots and Cons survived and escaped. Again, my own interpretation. Everyone is welcome to their own opinions and interpretations. Unless you have Bay on speed dial and have inside info, how about we just agree to disagree and move on.:)

    Just throwing this out there......

    There's a very real possibility that Bay will not be back and a new Director will take the reigns. That being said, there's also nothing saying that a new director will keep Bay's vision. We could get a continuation of T4 or we may get a complete reboot. That remains to be seen right now.

    Well to be fair it sure didn't sound like Ferrari treated Bay or Hasbro with much respect making DotM.

    What was the issue between them exactly? All I read up on was that they didn't want Dino being seen dying due to him being the Ferrari.

    This thread is great. I won't be seeing the film until sometime in July, so I'd like to know as much about the film as I can. So far I love what I'm hearing, I'm not going to listen to what any critics say about it. So far this is sounding like one of the best Transformers films that's been made, really looking forward to it. :)

    I still recall Prime speaking in that weird alien tongue (which sounded like Elvish) saying.. "THE LEGEND EXIST!"

    My answer and impression to the Prime title and Optimus being a Prime but yet he was built is simply this. The creators built the Primes to basically lead or master the regular bots in finding new worlds to cultivate and supply their needs.

    Basically the creators are the Slave owners the Primes over see the workers. The war broke out when the workers uprised and Optimus was pro freedom is the right of all beings.

    But like the Fallen Maybe Optimus isn't following standard protocols and the creators see him as a threat now.

    Which is why I really like this one out of the other movies. Its really playing off the Transformers Universe as a whole. Like Megatrons head infiltrating KIS just like in Animated and he becomes Galvatron rebuilt anew just like in the 80's movie. But at the same time new and a different spin on the lore.

    Given the clear set up ending they just did with super calf rocket Prime flying off into space (apparently he forgot he had those things for 2 hours and 44 minutes) a reboot would kill everything they just dumped in to this movie. A reboot would have been done after DOTM considering everyone of importance on the Decepticon side was killed. This just kicked off the next trilogy. Even if Bay doesn't direct he will be involved in the film, no chance he walks away from this cash cow.

    The movie TF origins seem a bit messed up.

    I'd prefer this version. The original TFs were created by Primus. After the war against Unicron, the Quintessons came out of nowhere and enslaved the weakened Cybertronian population. After an uprising, the Cybertronians (perhaps led by the Knights of Cybertron) won their freedom.

    Of course, movie-wise, the movie Primes could be the descendants of the original Knights of Cybertron (and they're probably named after Primus's original Thirteen from millions of years earlier).

    The Quintessons probably then sat back until things became more convenient for them.

    As for the 'Creators'? Well, we all know how honest and honourable the Quintessons are. I wouldn't put it past them to rewrite Cybertronian history to suit themselves.

    It makes as much sense as anything in these movies, so far.

    fuck, there was like one good shot of the dinos' robot mode and i completely missed swoop's lol.

    ratchet was just straight up sad :(  so was optimus being all scared and on edge.

    dinos were super cool.

    galvatron's voice should've been megs' all along, lol.

    i hope i have a daughter someday half as loyal as tessa and twice the actor.

    i love how mark wahlberg and john goodman basically played themselves. "i'm a.. WICKED WARRIOR ROBOT!"

    lucas cracked me up and his death was uh.... shit.

    couldn't hear drift or bingbing half the time.

    "I was expecting a giant car" :lol 

    two headed shockwave was scary as shit.

    the ship scenes with tessa were creepy as fuck. i love haunted houses but that was... shit.

    slag was indeed adorable. 10/10 would puppy dog again.

    crosshairs cracked me up.

    kinda sad stinger didn't get more screentime lol.

    it's weird walking out of a TF movie and feeling satisfied.
