Bumblebee

Plot hole: How can Bumblebee and Optimus already have the car specs and colours before they leave Cybertron for the first time to come to earth? Optimus didn't have this when they came to earth in the first Transformers movie.

Suggested correction: First of all, this might not be the same continuity as the older Transformers films. Second of all, the cars on Cybertron might be Cybertronian vehicles. Optimus scanned the semi in the first film so that he could be a different vehicle than he already was. There is no reason this could not have happened.

New this month I'd like to add that we know for a fact that this is not the same continuity. It is a reboot. See the Wikipedia article.

Continuity mistake: When Charlie is looking through her box of tapes, it shows the columns and there is nothing by Rick Astley. But from a different angle she picks a tape from the bottom of the middle column which we just saw, and it plays a Rick Astley song.
