Weapon: Sonic Boomer Laser
It took a staggering 288 hours per frame to render the Driller along with the photoreal CG building that includes all those reflections in its glass.


So that means they wasted 228 hours of the budget for every frame of a giant CG tentacle that never belonged in the movie in the first place. Glad to hear our money was well spent.

My favorite part was when it was destroyed, because then I knew I didn't have to watch it anymore.
For sale: My entire Transformers and third-party collection. Includes Masterpiece, Generations, Universe, Movie, Prime, Armada/Energon/Cybertron, G1, G2, etc. Quite a few of the Prime, Generations, Masterpiece, and third-party toys have never been opened. Most of those that have were only transformed a few times then kept in a glass display case. Original packaging included for most of the Universe and later era toys.
