Transformers: The Movie

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hot Rod and Kup are stuck underwater, we see Hot Rod fighting a Giant Squid. Just after the Giant Squid swims off we see a shot of Kup lying on the ground with his right arm and his left leg missing. However, when Hot Rod gets to him they have swapped sides, the left arm is missing and the right leg is missing (don't be confused by the fact Hot Rod flipped him). Only two of Kup's parts are missing, as we only see Hot Rod pick up two parts.

Continuity mistake: During the fight scene between Optimus Prime and Megatron at Autobot City, Megatron pleads for mercy. He reches for a gun that is under some metal. The gun is black in colour. Then Hot Rod jumps on him, Megatron stands up and the gun is now purple. It then goes to a close up of Megatron with the gun in one hand, and Hot Rod in the other, and the gun is now black again. (00:22:00)

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)

Trivia: It seems Huffer dies in the movie, but you don't see this character get killed. The evidence is that in the episode "Dark Awakening" the Autobots find a graveyard ship with a lot of the killed of characters bodies inside, and one grave says Huffer on it.

Question: Who are the inhabitants of the planet we see at the beginning (the first to fall victim to Unicron)? Are they transformers or just normal robots?

Answer: The planet was called Lithone. According to a comic book adaptation, the race that dwelled there were an offshoot of the Transformers who were more emotional. The limited information given on the only two characters named in the movie, Arblus and Kranix, shows that they can transform even though this is never shown.
