Even the screenwriters have no scenario in mind, see this interview with co-writer Ehren Kruger: Q: So you’re shifting gears in this film. You’ve got new human characters. But you never actually mention in the film, maybe in the script I don’t know, what happened to Sam. Was there a line of dialogue that got cut where you addressed that? A: I ...

The AllSpark and The Matrix of Leadership were special artifacts, that had sufficient energy to reignite a Transformer's Spark. Other than that, Transformers can die for sure. In all the cases you mentioned, the Transformer had died, except Case 8. To generalize, damage to a Transformer's Spark effectively kills it. Also, physically ripping out a ...

Historically, the Dinobots were big compared to the average Transformer, and even to Optimus Prime. Optimus, in turn, was larger than most of the other Transformers. The new Dinobots of Age of Extinction seem to take at least a slight cue from the original Knights of Cybertron of the IDW comic continuity, where they were some of the original Transformers. ...

The live action universe is tricky, seeing how they like to play a little fast and loose with the established Transformer abilities, so for starters the closest you can get to an answer may be "because movie?". However, the general opinion of the tfwiki is that transforming isn't responsible for Prime's "recovery", rather it was scanning/trans-scanning (the ...

The Transformers 4 Dinobots appear to have some degree of intelligence, displayed 4 different times. Grimlock did not immediately eat the first human he saw (corrupt businessman) They followed orders when they weren't being ridden, like when it was implied they were fighting in robot mode on the bridge When they were on the bridge, they formed a "defensive ...

It’s just a big magnet. The most explicit confirmation of this is a behind-the-scenes video, Big Giant Magnet Attack, which shows a little of how the stunts were performed. Quoting one of the people in the video: The spaceship is a big giant magnet, and it’s lifting all these metal things. It doesn’t suck up anything – just objects with lots of metal. ...

While I can't comment on the movie version of the Dinobots, their original origin came from the Transformers cartoon, where some dinosaur bones were found sealed away in the mountain that the Ark had crashed into. The Autobot medic, Ratchet, decided to try and put some new robots together based on the shapes of the dinosaur remains that were found. They ...

This could be Cybertronian language. As tfwiki says in Cybertron "conversations originally flowed in odd electronic syllables past strange metallic lips". This is the kind of sound we here in the movie. You can find more info here http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Cybertronian_language

Joshua is not actually giving power to the Transformium. He finds that Transformium can be manipulated by programing the Transformium matter. We write computer programs which controls the electrical signals inside devices of a computer to make them do tasks we need. As such, we can program Transformium matter and make them do whatever we want; like to ...

I am not exactly sure, but following the story line of the movie the following can be said: the Transformers were being hunted by both the humans and the bounty hunter Lockdown. Things had become intense for the Autobots, which means they had to cut ties with their human friends for their own safety. But a dark assumption is they were probably killed by ...

We don't know So far, the AOE movie is the only canonical appearance of the Dinobots in the Bayverse movies. However, the video below (taken from this forum) surfaced a few months ago. In it, a voice artist is shown to be voicing Grimlock (leader of the Dinobots) speaking in English for a yet unreleased toy. How canonical you want to take this is really up ...

The first song (played as Tessa drives up with her friends) is First Light, by Racing Glaciers. The second song (played as Tessa walks up the driveway) is Tessa, composed by Steve Jablonsky. Source: a copy of the movie, boredom and Google/Youtube.

Skyscrapers are secured directly to the bedrock beneath them and rather heavy so a straight up lift of the entire building would need a huge magnetic field.

From the picture, I can see your "gray guy" is: A) holding some sot of gun, and B) has clothing that looks like some sort of uniform. He appears to be a soldier. I do not know his purpose; as he is probably just some insignificant man/soldier.

In the cartoons it is explained that they are powered by Energon, which also powers thier laser AND projectile weaponry. Energon can convert energy into mass, basically nuclear fusion. And this is how they essentially change shape while transforming and pull ammo out of thin air. In the movies, where they have been designed with more conventional weaponry, ...

Within Age of Extinction itself, there is no direct evidence that Cybertron was seeded. There is, however, evidence of other planets being seeded - including Earth. Cade: Wait. The Seed? Tessa: Those nasty soldiers that were chasing us. I saw them board the ship and they took something that they called the seed. Hound: Listen. Sixty million ...

I haven't seen the movie, (and probably won't) but Wikipedia seems to have the complete score. With that and You Tube to hear a couple minutes of each you should be able to ID those songs. The songs and score are written and composed by Steve Jablonsky. "Decision" 4:20 "Best Thing That Ever Happened" 2:06 "I'm an Autobot" 5:06 "Optimus is ...

Dinobots have always been historical depict as bigger than the average Transformers (both Autobots and Decepticons) although the animation errors in the G1 cartoon often cause inconsistence with the size of the Dinobots: in some scenes the Dinobots looked bigger, in some scenes smaller. This kind of errors were frequently in the G1 cartoon, keep in mind that ...

It is not exactly coming to life. Joshua is led to believe that he is the one controlling the transformers he created by using computers, by Megatron who is manipulating Joshua to build himself a new body. There is no life source which is shown that gives life to those transformers built. So we can assume that it is just like an electrical appliance that ...

Yes. They were in the original animated Transformers: The Movie and were the Quintessons.

Age of Extinction: Here are a few that I think, but I'm trying to identify the sources: When he says "This child is about to...kick your ass." I believe the "kick your ass" part is Woody Harrelson from White Men Can't Jump since it's one of the few movies credited in the end credits. Can't identify the first part. "You talk to me like that?" No idea. "...

"You're wonderful, you're wonderful." is by Tom Cruise, though we don't know which movie it appears in.
