We all know it by heart, but I've always wondered. Is the sound made when the transformation cog is activated?
And another thing, is it me or do I only hear it once in the entire movie (When Blackout transforms for the very first time)? Right after his propeller closes in on itself and moves backward, the camera rotates behind a truck, and at that moment you can clearly hear it, but then I don't hear it for the rest of the movie, or do I just gotta listen hard?
Not trying to be nitpicky, but I don't see the point in playing it once if you're not gunna play it every other time.
Imagine being Kup though.... Having the robot equivalent of arthritis having to move all those joints.
And Primes transformation after he was blow down that cliff outside the ruby crystal mines... he seemed to be hurting there...
Seems to be its either like rusted joints or when the TF is damaged in one mode, some of the parts become like harder to transform. (misaligning parts, warped components no longer lining up after damage etc) But normally it seems no problem for them.
I remember reading a comic, where they had something along the lines of pain receptors, and there was one Transformer who had them removed to fight a battle painless. Something like that, yeah. That issue was bad ass. One of the originals too.
I don't know man, I just watch this stuff and like it. I don't ask questions. It pains me to hear Star Wars fans next to me asking: "Why oh mighty god why is there sound in deep space?!" Or: "I wonder if I can build my own lightsaber...Hmmm?" WTF?! Just watch it and enjoy it!
