They've broken through the front lines!
Arcee: I've lost contact with the Capitol!
Wheeljack: There's too many of them!
Brawn: Stand fast!
Also, found it strange that the service vehicle was equipped with an harpoon, considering this is not standard and that they have never encountered transformer before.
Part of the closing credits are a stylish sequence of images in yellow and black.
The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M rating from the classification board the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however this modified version was still seen as being too strong originally and received the original M rating given to the film, however following an appeal from Paramount the film was lowered to PG on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release.
