Corrected entry: Both Thundercracker and Skywarp seem fine and can be seen running to Astrotrain as the Decepticons retreat. The other damaged Decepticons (Megatron and the Insecticons) have to be carried to Astrotrain as they are so damaged. However, when the Decepticons decide to boot off the weak, Thundercracker and Skywarp suddenly look very damaged. (00:23:05 - 00:27:10)
Corrected entry: This mistake may be seen easier if you have a pause/slow button on your VCR. At the big battle scene, watch the shot of Autobots and Decepticons flying and shooting around the top of Autobot city. (Just after the scene of Hot Rod and Kup getting into the city.) If you look closely, you will see Ironhide jet off to the right, even though he is dead.
Corrected entry: When Blaster deploys his cassette robots, the two actual robots (not the animals) keep flashing colours from blue to black and back.
Corrected entry: When Galvatron stands on Unicron and says he has the Matrix, he is wearing it around his neck. After Unicron transforms, Galvatron transforms and starts shooting at Unicron. Then when he changes back he hasn't got the Matrix, but has it again when you see him falling into Unicron's mouth.
Corrected entry: When Blaster picks up the distress signal from Spike and Bumblebee, the speakers on his legs aren't there.
Corrected entry: When Devastator crushes one of the gun turrets, he is missing his chest Decepticon symbol. (00:17:05)
Corrected entry: When Hot Rod says "Not bad for an old timer." when Kup saves from being shot by Blitzwing and one of the Insecticons, he is holding Daniel. Yet when the shot changes to show them transforming, Hot Rod isn't holding Daniel any more.
Corrected entry: When Prime tells the Dinobots to destroy Devastator, Sunstreaker's forearm is coloured yellow instead of black. (00:18:45)
Corrected entry: When Soundwave retrieves Laserbeak to play back the spy footage he just took, Soundwave doesn't push his shoulder eject button like he does in previous episodes and later in the big battle scene.
Corrected entry: When Springer backs away from Wreck Gar at the part where the Junkions attack, Springer is missing his Autobot symbol.
Corrected entry: When Ironhide is shot, he falls down on his front; but when the shot changes (showing Soundwave and Skywarp flying into the command chairs), he's on his back. (00:07:55)
Corrected entry: During the shuttle attack, Ratchet falls on his back then switches to being on his front.
Corrected entry: When the Sweeps start shooting Ultra Magnus on the planet of junk, there are four ships that look exactly the same, when there should be three, (Scourge and two Sweeps).
Corrected entry: Unicron isn't a very clever robot is he? If this Autobot matrix is the only thing that can destroy him, why does he let Galvatron come right up to him? Unicron obviously knows that Galvatron is bringing the matrix to him, because as soon as Galvatron claims the Matrix of Magnus and says "With this, Unicron, my master.I will make you my slave" there is a shot of Unicron screaming in anger. What's even worse is, when Galvatron starts firing on Unicron, Unicron grabs him and eats him, putting the matrix inside him. Wouldn't the sensible thing to do be throw Galvatron (and the matrix) as far as possible away?
Corrected entry: When Springer and Arcee are running from Starscream's aerial attacks (after Starscream yells "Pathetic fools. There's no escape."), the floor they are running on changes from a dark to light blue colour when the shot changes. The tiles at the side of the floor also go from small to very big. (00:13:20)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Kup says "What's that darn fool doing?", watch where Hot Rod is firing, he's completely missing the shuttle.
Corrected entry: When Soundwave plays Laserbeaks spy footage, on the big screen, it shows a close up picture of Ironhide's face, Laserbeak was nowhere near Ironhide, the message also lets you hear Optimus's "Now all we need is a little of Energon, and a lot of luck" speech right after he says they don't have much, but he has another thing to say before that, and Laserbeak was filming the whole conversation, so how does he miss all that talk?
Corrected entry: Earlier I submitted a mistake and Phrased it wrong, so here is what I meant; Unicron's left eye is smashed when a ship flies through it, and he can't fire lasers from it, but when Rodimus and the others break through his other eye, he can fire lasers from his right eye still, but not his left.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Blaster sends the signal to Prime, at one point (Before Soundwave's cassette robots destroy the comms. dish) a Decepticon just flies past one of the windows which looks like Starscream/Skywarp/Thundercracker, but is coloured wrongly, in fact it's coloured blue like Dirge.
Corrected entry: Slag charges straight into one of Devastator's legs, but when the shot changes Slag is now charging into his stomach.
Corrected entry: The Decepticons thrash Autobot city completely in the first attack, but later when they have another attack on it (under the command of Galvatron) there are two perfect brand new Autobot shuttles waiting around to be used by Ultra Magnus and co. How did these shuttles not get damaged in any way when the Decepticons attacked first time?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Kup and Hot Rod reach Autobot City and discover that the Insecticons are in their way, Hot Rod says, "Wrong, they're our way in." But in the next shot when it shows Hot Rod jumping the gap, look in the background at the road and you can see that Kup is missing.
Corrected entry: When Daniel knocks down half of the acid vat's cover, Bumblebee, Jazz, Cliffjumper, and Spike land on it but none of the other victims behind them follow. Daniel just blasted the cover supports, he didn't stop the conveyor belt.
Corrected entry: If you look very carefully at the robots helping Kup setting up the roadblock, one of them is Prowl, who shouldn't be there because he got killed a few moments earlier. He is also coloured like Bluestreak, who has different arm shapes and forehead plates.
Corrected entry: When Kickback and Shrapnel start to eat one of Autobot city's doors, Kickback calls Shrapnel "Shrapray"
Corrected entry: When some Decepticons say "nay" to defend themselves in Astrotrain, the voices don't match up to any characters on screen. This is especially noticeable because the Insecticons certainly don't sound like that. The "nay" voice is just the same voice layered a few times.
Corrected entry: When Perceptor and Grapple are shown firing against the Decepticons (just after the part where the Autobots fire missiles at Devastator) an Autobot runs past Perceptor. If you look closely, this Autobot is actually Swoop. How can he be here now if he shows up in Prime's shuttle a few shots later? (00:18:15)
Corrected entry: Hot Rod and Kup run out of "Energon goodies" on Quintessa but when they land on the planet of Junk they suddenly have some to offer to the Junkions.
Corrected entry: How do the Constructicons without mouths manage to play the trumpets at Starscream's coronation?
Corrected entry: When Devastater is first seen, his chest plate is lime green. Then in the next scene he is seen, his chestplate is purple. (00:17:30)
Corrected entry: When Optimus Prime removes the Matrix from his chest, there are TWO Matrices in his torso compartment, although the second one isn't illuminated.
Corrected entry: As Prime chases the Decepticons, Blitzwing can be seen holding his gun, but when he jumps out of the way of Prime he isn't holding it anymore. (00:19:40)
Corrected entry: When Prime transforms back to robot mode and starts blasting the Decepticons, no transforming sound effect is heard.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Megatron and the decepticons blast into the autobot shuttle, Megatron transforms and Starscream starts blasting the autobots with Megatron (in gun mode), when the autobots (Ironhide & Ratchet) return fire we see Starscream firing from his own gun on his arm then back to the autobots and then back to Starscream and he is firing from Megatron again. (00:07:14)
Corrected entry: In the movie, the transformers actually die when they are shot. In the TV series, they would normally be damaged and would later be repaired. However, it seems that only the Decepticon guns can kill, since in the shuttle attack scene near the start the Decepticons kill some Autobots. But, later Blitzwing shoots an Insecticon and the Insecticon does not die. When Autobots do hit the Decepticons (Prime guns down just about every Decepticon there apart from Megatron, and Blaster shoots down a Constructicon with a huge laser cannon) they do not die, some don't even take damage.
Corrected entry: When Kup says "What's that darn fool doing?" you can see Hound with him. The thing is, later Hound is seen coming out of the shuttle that Prime and the others arrived in to help out in the big battle from Moonbase 1.
Corrected entry: How did Hot Rod and Kup know that the others were on the planet of junk? They crashed on a completely different planet, and were never told where Ultra Magnus and co. went. So how did they find the others?
Corrected entry: The Decepticons pretty much total Autobot city in every way possible. So why is it later on in the movie there are 2 perfect shuttles in the open that have not been damaged in anyway? I suppose one may have been the one Prime was in but what about the other?
Corrected entry: At the start of the big battle scene, Ultra Magnus tells Blurr that he can help him "alert the others" Hold on. First, Lookout Mountain has been destroyed with a rather big explosion. Second, the shuttle everyone was expecting to land has just blown up and these things called "Decepticons" have left it. Thirdly, Starscream sets a barrage of laser fire on the base before Magnus has told the others what to do. The others ought to know that they were under attack.
Corrected entry: When Devastator battles the Dinobots to a standstill, he is stuck or sitting in a hole in a wall. When Prime attacks the Decepticons he drives by the very same hole and Devastator (or any of the Constructicons or even Dinobots for that matter) are nowhere to be seen. (00:19:40)
Corrected entry: On the planet of Junk, when Grimlock says "Me not kisser. Me King." his eyes are drawn way too big.
Corrected entry: At the start of the movie, the announcer says that the autobots are planning an assault to take back Cybertron by stocking up energy by having "hidden" bases on two of Cybertron's moons. Just how hidden are these? Laserbeak knows where they are, and Starscream knows this as well. Regardless of the fact that there was an altered script during filming, this is still a mistake.
Corrected entry: Early in the movie when Ironhide boards the ship for Earth, Prime checks for security status with Jazz and Cliffjumper. After the ship takes off, those two are seen standing right next to Prime. (00:06:10)
Corrected entry: In the big battle near the start of the movie, Prime comes on a shuttle with Dinobots reinforcments. However, there is one problem - one of the Dinobots, Snarl, is missing. However, when Galvatron returns to Autobot city and starts to attack it later on in the movie, Snarl is clealy seen doging laser fire. But then when Blur is trying to get the Dinobots on the shuttle, Snarl is gone - and does not make another appearence in the movie. (00:37:38)
Corrected entry: In the big battle scene, the Decepticons retreat and get into Astrotrain. Look at Starscream - he has to duck to get in. Now once the Decepticons get inside, Astrotrain takes off. A couple of scenes later, the Decepticons start of fight over who should be leader. The Constructicons unite and form Devastator - this would be impossible since Devastator is at least 3 to 4 times bigger than Starscream. If this did happen Devastator would crash through Astrotrain's roof. (00:28:15)
Corrected entry: In the very short shot of the robots battling each other above Autobot City, just after Ironhide (who should not be there) flies out of shot, Shockwave (the purple one) flies in. What's he doing there? He was left back on Cybertron, wasn't he?
Corrected entry: When the shuttle is landing in Autobot City, Sunstreaker and Huffer are briefly seen helping Kup set up the roadblock. However, when Optimus and the other reinforcements arrive from Cybertron, Sunstreaker can also be seen piloting the shuttle.
Corrected entry: During the big war scene we notice the autobots carrying in some of their dead (specifically Windcharger and Wheeljack). A couple of scenes later we can see those two characters standing behind the others who are watching a ship blast off.
Corrected entry: At the start of the big battle scene, Blitzwing says "Come on down, autobrat!" without moving his mouth.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Daniel saves some Autobots and his father from the acid pit by blasting the lid support, why didn't Spike blast the acid cover lid himself? Seeing as Daniel was wearing Spike's old exo-suit, did Spike upgrade to a suit with no weaponry? (01:14:10)
Corrected entry: When the beetle Insecticon is seen eating the front door to Autobot City, he's seen close up with only one antenna because the other was blasted off by the tank Blitzwing's friendly fire. But it was the right antenna that was blasted off and the left one is seen missing later on. (00:14:10)
