Here's a bit of trivia we learned in the movie presentation:

- Hound was designed by a guy from the GI Joe team, so there's lots of weapons.
- The giant Grimlock has a ride-on Optimus prime, and he makes a sound when connected. If someone else tries to ride him, he gets a different sound.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions....

...but I hope this movie dies a pre-mature death, so someone with a sense of direction can remake the transformers the way Marvel remade superhero movies. I refuse to watch this movie even if friends say oh theres nothing better in theatres this weekend, I will not give Michael "Hack" Bay anymore of my money .... he can go on a hack on his next franchise the Ninja Turtles (from outta space). I mean the public now has a bar of quality to which it can compare to with Marvel movies, so why settle for utter sh*t that belongs in the 90s...

This moron should disappear like Joel "Batman Nipple" Schumacher.... I like Michael Bay as much as Adam likes his Matty Collector Voltron

WOW! Holy fossils, the new

WOW! Holy fossils, the new Dinobots look great! Even with the Super Sentai-esque colors. So, the grey truck really is Galvatron, not Motormaster or Nemesis Prime? And lol, can't believe they included Drift in the new film. That should get some interesting fan reactions.

Not the first IDW on Film

Dark of the Moon had The Wreckers based on the popularity of TF Prime's team and IDW's Last Stand of the Wreckers book, not to mention name dropping their ship "the Xanthium."

I think the Drift inclusion is just another in the long term plans of solidifying that character into the overall mythos of the franchise.

Seeing how he's molded after Japanese armor, I hope we don't see the film get into trouble for more 'racially insensitive characters.'
