Out of the top of my head, I remember when Megatron was being revived by the Constructicons, they use one of their own to revive Megatron but later on, we see the same bot that was destroyed along the lines with the other Constructicons.

The one you see with them later is Scrapper, the one sacrificed under water however, is Scrapmetal. Two different bots.

That may not be a goof exactly like how Barricade and Starscream had a holographic driver and pilot, but for this situation, the Contructicons had no reason to be incognito and wouldn't have needed a holographic driver.

Tapped my interest, Im going to have to go watch it again, because I didn't notice that...

Cool beans, thanks for clearing the first one up for me :)
And for the second one, I don't remember exactly. I only saw the movie once when it came out a couple years ago, but I'm sure I did see something like that.

Wow, haven't been on Seibertron in a bit, this is a good a place as any to start.
TF1 as compared to DOTM:Brawl takes forever to kill, in turn DOTM TransFormers die almost instaneously. Weapons upgrades?

After seeing the first two so many times, ROTF had a lot of small details, but by now everyone's found em. I (or rather my brother) did notice one odd thing in DOTM...LaserBeak is apparently able to shoot a bird...in 3. Which was awesome.
So...nothing amazing comes to mind sadly, after TF1&2 my eyes missed little to nothing in DOTM.

Motto: "There must be an easier way."
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Being a Megs fan myself, the first thing I notice is Megatron getting shortchanged in all 3 films. In the first, he had as much screen time as Cliffjumper in TF:P. In the second, he was scrapped by Optimus and made a pawn of the Fallen. Same problem in the third, but replacing the Fallen with Sentinel Prime. Megatron is nobody's fool, he's the leader! I think if they're going to do a TF:4, I'd like to see Megs back in charge.
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

Things you notice after watching TF movies multiple times, not right off the bat :D and I know. But what he lacked in screen time, he made up for in his awesome designs, and his final moment (Before getting cleved o' course)

I DID watch them multiple times before formulating this opinion. I just used bad wording.

Motto: "Destruction is the ultimate freedom."
Weapon: Plasma Beam Rifle
I was pondering something while on my 2 hour bus ride home from school about the final battles in the trilogy;

-In the first movie, the battle began mid day and ended...10 minutes later.
-In ROTF, the battle started mid day and ended in the late afternoon
-In DOTM, the final battle started early in the morning(Or technically late at night) and ended mid day.

-Also, in the first movie, Sam was running to get to a building.
-In ROTF he was running to get to a pillar.
-And in DOTM, he was running to get to a building with a pillar in it...

-I also noticed that the first movie's final battle was like a black ops mission. A few Autobots trying to sneak precious cargo into...a heavily populated city for some reason.
-ROTF's was like a big battle in the desert.
-And DOTM's was more like an extermination.

IDK If anyone else noticed, but the "Blood" Out of the Dread's mouths and such, is energon. G1 PINK energon.
Another thing Sentinel Prime has 2 Swords. One duel bladed Sword, and one Buster Blade. He used it on Optimus when he was awakened.
Ironhide's cannons are next to gone. He relies mostly on handheld weapons, but never activates them, leading me to believe they're gone or replaced.

Dino laughs when he skis down the highway on hatchet

there are giant hatchets on Cybertron in the opening scenes

He had 2 swords, but they were the same. He was just able to attach them together to make the dual blades. Too bad the toy can't do that.

Things to notice besides things already mentioned IMO.

- TF 2007 is the most balanced, fun movie of the 3
- ROTF would have been the best of the 3 had it cut down the toilet humor/stuck with Primes death. It was easily the best paced of the 3 movies with the most scenic final battle in Egypt IMO
- DOTM was a great second half movie with the first half being a lot worse than the worst humor used in ROTF

All 3 are pretty watchable but the latter two have the holes with repeat viewings

I noticed, that the wildlife on Cybertron is F*&KING SCARY!

Scorponok
Ravage
Insecticons
Microcons
Devastator
Laserbeak
Hatchet
The Driller (Rumble... that's just what I call him)

All examples of animal-like Transformers from the movies. All scary as hell! No wonder the Transformers are all armed liek they are!

He's in the ROTF Video Game, if you download soundwave. He's a drone of sorts. Tells you just how well they treat the source material . Laserbeak's in it too. He ejects them both MULTIPLE times, like off an essembly line. They're a part of the movies like the cool psp designs for movie 1 Sideswipe and Wheeljack. They didn't exist on screen yet, so the game designers went wild. look at the un-used Arcee from the first film, as aposed to the one in part 2. DRASTIC changes were made. If you read the comics though, She gets butchered and rebuilt by thundercracker and some doctor, Flatline? Anyway, she gets rebuilt as the three sisters you see in ROTF. Oh, and they rescue the twins, and use they're ship to escape, so Arcee brought Skids and Mudflap into movieverse, thank her. psp Sideswipe looks alot like Dino...

The transformation sequence for optimus prime changes from movie to movie, in TF1, the feet come out BELOW the sleeping cab, and in TF2, they ARE the cab, in TF3 the cab folds like wings on the back... Something constant, is that the rear mudguards ALWAYS are cut from view, for the designers do not know what to do with them, and maybe it has to do with the fact that Ben Procter did never intend OP to have them on his transformation ideas....

Sentinel Prime looks like Sean Connery and makes a Highlander reference. He's voiced by Leonard Nemoy and makes a Star Trek reference.

Both during the climax of the film.

Motto: "If you don't believe me, just ask me.....I'll tell you all about it."
First off, I loved all 3 movies.

But, in the first movie and in DOTM is where I have to raise some ?'s.

07 movie- The Allspark completely rebuilds/fixes frenzy bringing him back to full size. It even turns that regular cell phone into a mini transformer. However, the entire time Bumblebee is holding the Allspark and transporting it and then hands it over to Sam after his legs get blown off...... it can't fix his voice?

then in ROTF Wheelie has his eye destroyed however in DOTM it is completely fixed....... yet bumblebee still can't talk?
New pics added as I find time.

Orci and Kurtzman have openly admitted that they just fell in love with the idea of Bumblebee using radio clips as a means of communication, and decreed that all Bee's henceforth shall never communicate via conventional means. In order to give an explanation for this, they had Sam tell Mikaela that Bee was "playing it up" in ROTF, and apparently is still doing so in DOTM.

Even TFP Bee speaks in beeps. They probably wanted him to speak in radio clips too, but the right clips every single episode was probably too much work. And then there's copyrights issues.
