    I thought so too but it's his hand definitely, the torso is too round to be Dino, and theres red kibble all over the floor and a little still on the body.

    Am I the only one who loved the KSI-Bot transformations?

    I liked them. They were cool.

    Maybe it was just another fat, red robot.

    I mean, Grindor and Blackout looked the same.

    Nah. I loved it. It was a breathtaking visual, but also showed that the human-made Transformers had some power over the actual Transformers themselves.

    Galvatron seriously needs to retain this ability in this trilogy.

    While part of me is disappointed with the lack of transformations on both warring sides, I also think it is a cool ability.

    I wouldn't mind Galvatron and his crew retaining it in upcoming films, but I'd limit it to them only. Seriously, I want to see damn transformations in a Transformers movie!

    What's with people blacking out text on a spoiler disclosed thread? And is there any way to view it from an iphone?

    Disclosure: I liked AOE, however...
    I said this about DOTM and I'll say it about this movie. It would have been perfect in two parts. To recap my opinion on DOTM, if DOTM were broken in two parts, pt1 should have ended shortly after Ironhides death, they could have fleshed out a little more autobots in mourning, forced exile and presented starscream blowing them up as a cliffhanger. From there DOTM pt2 could pick up with the autobots surviving and mounting their assault on fortress Chicago.
    IMO AOE's first hour was awesome and left me feeling that this was the best of the series and if they could have wrapped it he story up another 45 minutes after that it would have. As it is we got another hour and forty minutes of unnecessary explosions and a bombardment of gun fire.
    I don't have an idea yet as to how to break this movie down to two parts without watching it a few times more but what I wish I could have been wowed by a few things and been able to keep them fresh in my mind rather then forgetting most of the awesomeness I saw because it was replaced over and over again with something else.
    I just don't get how, if they have so much content to cram into a movie and already have almost 3 hours of film and these movies almost automatically make a billion dollars from $200 million, why not offer them in two parts?

    Iunno we never had generic bots before. Why start now.

    Leadfoot may have been killed before KSI started cannibalizing their parts to make new transformers.

    Saw it Sunday night. Some major issues:

    Leadfoot: No way Leadfoot goes out like a punk. The Wreckers are ornery SOB's. He would have taken out the humans instead. "no please, I'm an Autobot". No way he says that. He just kills them all. I can see how and why Ratchet died the way he did... but not a Wrecker like Leadfoot.

    Hound: Even though everyone has already said this... should'a been Bulkhead. That wasn't Hound in any way. And although he was fun, totally cliche stock character.

    Galvatron: Sucked about as bad as the original did. Just a Megatron knock-off.

    Optimus/Grimlock taming scene... did anyone really buy that?

    One last thing...

    Lucky Charms car: Did they or did they not allude to him being a Transformer? He looked like he leaked energon in his opening when he flew through the air, and Lucky Charms says at one point something like "I don't know how I'm driving this well." Seriously, wasn't his car a TF?!?!?

    Lockdown could have been blasting him just off camera. And Lockdown was tough enough to nearly kill Prime.

    After having seen the movie, I really don't feel he matched with Bulkhead either. The military alt mode was a bigger version of Hound's old jeep mode, and Bulkhead has never had a military alt mode, and never did Hound show to have super strength (at least, no more than a normal Transformer), a necessity when being Bulkhead.

    That, and Hound was much more focused on guns than hand to hand stuff that Bulkie does.

    What do you mean?

    I enjoyed it. I felt like it was way too long however. It was nice to see the Autobots interact with each other, but there was a lack of Decepticons in this one(I actually miss Starscream?!). I'm excited for the next one, and I'm hoping that it takes place in space, and departs from the human storyline that's been set up.

    Side note: I wish bumblebee would have at least mentioned Sam W., considering he began crying in ROTF when Sam left for college

    Went to see TF4 last night, and my little nephew almost cried when they killed Ratchet, he even whispered "Ratchet NOOOOOO". But has anybody else noticed that Galvatron looks like TF Prime Predacons Rising Megatron?

    Also what happened in that 4 year gap between DOTM and AOE, what turned the humans against the Autobots, but yet they don't shoot at Lockdown. Even Attinger says "The Age Of The Transformers It's Over" but still lets Lockdown walk free

    yup, that was one of my major erks of the final fight scene. it just seemed like it was thrown togheter for the sake of it being what it was. if it was a time thing, they could have easily went back, took out many parts of the movie that did not need to be there (lucky charms and the annoying daughter) and give more of a story/reason for the alliance of optimus and the dinobots. but all we got was optimus bitch slapping grimlock and the riding him off into the sunset. weak

    The female character is given a chance to be more of a complex character. The other characters feel like real people and not caricatures, and so many are actually given a good lot of screentime to develop and show off actual individual plotlines. Even small-time characters are given personality in the middle of everything else - such as the scientist who is irreverent enough to eat donuts and do what we all know scientists actually do and have fun with his creation when nobody's looking.

    The offensive humor has finally been toned way down, and the writing made less reliant on things people would already know from other franchises. Things which are not explained now have it made clear that they are hooks for explanations that will come in the next film/s. We got to see little bits of Cybertronian life that are not generally given a chance in other movies because they don't directly relate to the war on Earth, such as the strange beasts on Lockdown's ship, and to have hints about just how wide and populated by other species the movie universe really is.

    They spent a hell of a lot more time on the robots and the inside of the ship, bringing more of an equilibrium to the movie and having it be less of a "humans are the show while the robots just slap each other around in the background" kind of deal. Yes, the effects suffered a little bit in places in response because of the need to balance budget against everything they wanted to give screentime, but I am no less happy for it. The Cybertronians themselves finally have a chance to become real characters as well, interacting and showing us who they are at length.

    They approach the after-effects of the Chicago battle in a way that we understand to be very possible in our modern age based on how we have reacted to other events and take quiet jabs at said era of paranoia in the process, which I thought was interesting as well.

    There are some editing errors or some things that could have been tightened up/explained a little better. I'll grant that.

    But on the whole I enjoyed watching this film far, far more than I did any of the other three - and that's taking into account that most of my favorites were in the third.

    Finally saw it. I think I had higher expectations than I should have, this is Bay after all. It probably doesn't help that I kind of zoned out during several parts of it and may have missed some plot points. My main problem with it is that I totally agree that it was waaay too long.

    On the other hand, though, the parts that were awesome were awesome. The Dinobots had a smaller role than I had hoped, but that doesn't matter too much to me because they were every bit as cool as I was expecting. I also wasn't expecting them to leave so much unresolved at the end, but I guess it makes sense since TF5's already been confirmed.

    The scene where Optimus goes to join with the other Autobots in the canyon, it looks like the same place where the Autobots had the base in Jasper, Nevada in TF Prime

    Actually I can tell you (assuming no one has said this before), the transformation made it clear that something was wrong with Optimus as pieces are falling off of him he is violently waving his gun around in the barn and the fact that he is not trusting the humans at all, think Jetfire from ROTF except way more violent.

    I'm a new user by the way, but yeah I totally agree with that, I mean I understand why they did it but I hope in the next movies that Galvatron and any other Decepticons transform the normal way rather than the molecular teleporting that it was here but you have to admit, it did lead to a pretty funny scene where Bumblebee shoots Galvatron and is just dumbfounded by how he merely just teleports away after falling to pieces.
