Dat look kool!!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:


But:
1. It feels weird hearing Frank Welker instead of Hugo Weaving voicing Movieverse Megatron.

2. All these dead guys suddenly alive with no explanation = out of continuity with the movies.

Man that looks like a lot of fun! I'd like to go someday... I guess Hugo Weaving cost too much to voice Megatron again, oh well Welker is just fine! He's doing a great job on TF Prime.

Well, with the fatality rate that Michael Bay likes to put into his movies, it'd be hard to find a place where it truly fits. It's pretty clearly after the first film, since the entire ride is built around the concept of protecting a shard of the Allspark. If you allow for the survival of Devastator and a 'replacement' for Ravage in RotF, this could follow the second movie (and it looks like Megatron did have the head/face wound he got in RotF). It's clearly not after DotM, since, well, nearly everyone died in that one!

Also not sure how I feel about that wrecked yellow VW Beetle near the end of the film... :-(

Bonecrusher's alive in this ride, yet died in Movie 1 (the Buffalo MPV Decepticon in ROTF was never confirmed to be him).

Though, Ravage was indeed rebuilt post-ROTF, but his fate remains unknown.

And Megatron is killed here in this ride, yet alive in DOTM.

We don't know that! Decapitation doesn't equate to deactivation! Right? :???:

Megatron tends to 'get better', as I think we all know... :-B ;)

He only "got better" once, in ROTF. He dies in this ride in his DOTM body. There's no confirmed method for him to have be revived again between ROTF and DOTM, as this is the very last shard and, as we saw in the first two films, the AllSpark material burns up and disintegrates upon contact with living Cybertronians. So the shard wouldn't have survived this ride's events to bring back Megs again.

And Optimus wouldn't use the Matrix on Megs since he was happy that Evac killed Megs in this ride, and was fully willing to kill Megatron in both the second and third films.

Actually, when you look at it frame-by-frame, it looks like a Bonecrusher-type Decepticon gets sliced in half during Optimus' killing spree in DOTM on his way to take out Shockwave. This is that big slashing kill that was repeated in a lot of the trailers, after Optimus has already discarded his wings and most of his larger weaponry.

It's very hard to tell, but judging by the design of the legs of that Decepticon, it looks a lot like Bonecrusher's.

If you could pull up a clear screenshot of said bot getting slaughtered, as that scene is very hard to examine, that would be great.

The bot models in that scene are Sideways, Longhaul, and Brawl. No Bonecrusher.
