Continuity mistake: In the battle scene at autobot city, Megatron orders Soundwave to jam the transmission that Blaster is sending to Optimus Prime. When Soundwave ejects Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage & Ratbat we see them flying through the air transforming simultaneously and and both Rumble & Frenzy are coloured the same (red & black) when Rumble is supposed to be purple. (00:15:08)
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, Spike and a few autobots are about to be dropped into the vat of acid. When the view is from above the vat, look carefully to see Daniel already in the room standing in the very spot he will shoot the cover from. However, a frame or two later shows Daniel running into the room. (01:13:48)
Continuity mistake: As Blaster makes the transmission there is a close up shot of all the Decepticons firing at the base. (Before Megatron notices the transmission) Look at Soundwave, and you'll notice his side facial panels are blue instead of grey. 2 shot changes later and they are back to the right colours. (00:15:10)
Continuity mistake: Unicron's head (specifically his forehead region) is drawn a bit differently during the 'transformation sequence' than elsewhere in the movie. This is likely due to the fact that this sequence was animated much earlier than the rest of the film, and changes were made to the character designs at this point.

Continuity mistake: In the big battle scene, when Rumble starts to smash the glass, you can see Blaster transform in front of Perceptor. But when the shot changes, he is behind Perceptor.
Continuity mistake: When Ratchet gets shot in the shuttle attack scene, the red cross on his arm vanishes.
Continuity mistake: When the Decepticons get into Astrotrain, there is a sort of semi-circle shaped space to get through, but when it shows Astrotrain's door closing, there is no semi-circle, just a big space.
Continuity mistake: When Blaster tries to communicate with Prime, the dome on Blaster's head doesn't know if it wants to stay red or white, it switches repeatedly.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, there is a pan from left to right of all of the Autobots, and Blurr and Perceptor are both missing their Autobot symbols. (01:19:05)
