Were there 2 Drillers in DOTM?

Based on what I read at Transwiki, there was just 1 Driller.

But unless my eyes were failing me, once Sentinel Prime Activated the Space Bridge in Washington D.C., the 'cons in the moon all jumped out like daisies underneath the lunar soil, there was the "Driller" in the background.

Did Shockwave and his "pet"piggyback through the bridge or vice versa? It seems illogical for him to teleport back and forth to the moon to guide the 'cons to earth?

2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)

I had the same thought. We first see the Driller at Chernobyl, then we see a Driller on the Moon when the space bridge is activated. Either there were two, or Shockwave and the Driller went to the Moon after the Chernobyl scene.

The main activating point if I'm correct was at Washington D.C. right? Or were there multiple portals that opened world wide?

And, the portals were two way?

Or was the Driller just showing off like a good "pet"?

I also didn't notice a second Driller. I'll be looking for it when I see the movie again this week.

I didn't see it on the moon...it's kinda hard to tell with all the cons having the same dull colors, as well as the dust everywhere. Or, it was just put there by ILM to fill in some space where a new model didn't have to be

Actually, it's the mothership that wheelie and brains end up chewing, although it does look like the driller's head...

@ saucerdo.

Are you even on the same wave length? The scene I mentioned is on Tranquility Base, the site of Apollo 11 landing aka the crash site of the Ark and not Chicago, the site of the decepticon armada invading. Just after Sentinel Prime activated the last 5 "Pillars". When al lthe 'cons started jumping out like fleas on a dog. The "Driller" was in the background. :BANG_HEAD:

From the trailers:

Ships (the Mothership is way out in the back)...

...and the Mothership.

I don't see any Drillers, though there's a huge plume of debris with no apparent Con/ship causing it behind the Space Bridge portal.
