    ^It sounds like they didnt film it unfortunately. As far as i know the fight was longer in the script. But Bay has said on a few occasions budget was a factor.

    ^Budget is always a big factor with special effects movies. In Hellboy, Abe Sapien was supposed to be in the entire movie, but because of budget, he wasn't in the final third of the movie. It would have cost another million to have kept him in.

    Yeah that is what I have read also, I was hoping that the IMAX version would have it but I do not expect it now, it is to bad, I would love to have watched that.

    True, true, in the case of Hellboy (Which I loved) that would have been a million well spent :woot:

    I believe Bee is a couple of feet taller and definately broader than Jazz.

    Yeah i know that, was shame as Abe is great and Doug is awesome as him :yay: .

    Many other movies suffer from budget restrictions as well.

    Yes is taller, after watching the movie, tallest to shortest with the autobots goes like this:

    Optimus Prime
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Bumblebee
    Jazz.

    You can see in this in a couple of scene's in the movie.

    Yeah you can, when they first all get together on earth and meet Sam, and then again the Sector 7 part when they rescue Sam just before Bee gets caught.

    ^Also in the aftermath of the final battle, when OP is holding Jazz's body, you can see the size difference of the remaining 3 (BB is injured), OP towers above them all!

    Yeah OP was just huge, much bigger than any of the other Autobots. But I did think that Bee would be smaller than Jazz, not that it really matters to me or anything, I loved them all :woot:

    No Jazz was definately the smallest, which shouldnt have made a difference when fighting comes into play but oh well.

    Well, when you go against someone who's about twice your size, it can make a bit of a differance.

    This is true, as shown by what happened to Jazz. Poor Jazz.

    Oh yeah he was the smallest in the movie, I was kind of shocked by that is all, if Jazz had a more powerful gun than his size would not have mattered as much, but against a giant and powerful Megatron he didn't stand a chance.

    ^ Yes, but he knew he didn't stand a chance. That's what made him rock.

    Not nessecarily, i am twice the size of Jet Li, yet he would MURDER me in a fight.

    It was strange, Jazz's gun seemed to do a lot of damage to Brawl, but didnt effect Meg's practically at all. I wonder does Megatron have stronger skin/armour than all of the others?

    Agreed, i love that scene.

    Yeah I really found the fact that Jazz's gun was so weak and didn't even put a dent in Megatron's armour really strange, like you said he did a lot of damage to Brawl who was a tank and would have very strong armour as well but against Megatron nothing...? It didn't make sense to me at all. Bumblebee's gun was very powerful, look at the damage he did all while being injured, Bee is great. 4 Days to IMAX.

    Yeah, Jazz seemed to have the weakest gun, but who knows, maybe Megatrons armour is just stronger than other Decepticons is.

    We dont have IMAX here :cmad:

    I read somewhere that IMAX has agreed to expand to England, Asia and Australia.

    It'll be 2010 before one opens though.

    But in all seriousness, I would LOVE to see extended Bumblebee fights, especially the one against Barricade.

    And how his voicebox was fixed, along with his legs after the entire battle in Mission City.

    Hopefully thsat is true about IMAX, but i cant see them opening one in Liverpool to be honest, hope i'm wrong though.

    IMO Ratchet fixed both of those things on BB, there was obviously some time gone by between the end of the battle and Captain Lennox going home, etc, so i think Ratchet fixed BB's legs then, and his voice at the end of the battle.
