Wrong. In the movie, the Air and Space museum literally moves from DC to the middle of a desert. There are even some exterior shots immediately prior to the characters entering the museum, and they depict the museum in a distinctly non-desert-looking location.

[i]A plot hole, or plothole, is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story's plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events
I'm pretty sure that teleporting the Smithsonian from Washington DC to the middle of a desert constitutes an "illogical or impossible event"

1. Wheelie teleporting/disappearing.
2. The Primes could beat the Fallen to take the Matrix but not kill him even though only a Prime could finish him. Optimus' fusion with Jetfire giving him the strength to do this is tangentially related.
3. The cover up of the previous film's final battle and it's location ("Mission City" in Transformers, *Los Angeles in RotF).
4. In TF '07, the Autobot-Decepticon war was started by Megatron. In RotF, it was started by the Fallen.
5. In TF '07, the war was fought over the Allspark. In RotF, the war was fought over the sun-blower-upper-machine.
6. The entire plot thread with Alice, which made no sense and went nowhere.
7. How did BB know that Sam was at the party?
8. How did Optimus know that Megatron was about to kill Sam in that warehouse?
9. At what point does Sam's head stop being full of crazy, and why?
blah blah blah...

That's no excuse. You can't hold a half-hour toy commercial to the same standards as a $200 million summer blockbuster. However, I'm willing to bet that the first season actually had fewer plot holes per hour than RotF did.
Delta Magnus wrote:Besides, at what point in ROTF in the air and space museum do they say they're in Arizona?
They don't actually say it. However, it turns out that there's an "airplane graveyard" at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base near Tucson, Arizona, and that's apparently where the museum teleported to.
Delta Magnus wrote:Besides, why complain about the movies when you could be complaining about the Energon cartoon, which was genuinely dreadful?
Because this is the live-action movie forum. We go elsewhere to complain about Energon.
