Continuity mistake: As Jetfire transforms, Simmons orders everyone to hide by the Mig, and as they run to it the tall lighting pole is positioned in the open area between Jetfire's enclosure and two red-trimmed glass showcases. But when Jetfire begins to ask, "What sort of hideous mausoleum is this?" that tall pole is now between the two showcases and there are metal posts with red rope suddenly surrounding it. Then when Jetfire breaks out of the hangar, the lighting pole and metal posts have all vanished. (01:23:05)

Visible crew/equipment: When Leo has the taser in his hand in the museum's bathroom and then uses it on the security guard, the reflection of the cameraman, who is wearing a white shirt, is visible on the stall door. (01:21:20)

Continuity mistake: After Leo uses the taser on the security guard in the bathroom, the guard is sprawled out on the floor with his left arm lying beside him and the TP roll above his arm, but next shot the guard's arm is up parallel to his shoulder, with the TP roll now between his arm and torso.

Continuity mistake: When Leo walks out of the bathroom with his pants down saying, "Ran out of toilet paper, you got any out here?", the security guard behind him is walking towards him, at the right of the airplane. Next shot that security guard behind him is to the left of the airplane. (01:20:55)

Continuity mistake: When Devastator is sucking up the vehicles and structures at the construction site, the large camper's exterior is pulled off, leaving only the frame as the camper is pulled forward, but a few shots later, in an overhead wideshot that camper is still intact and straight, as Mudflap and Skids stand firm.

Revealing mistake: At the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar, upon finding Jetfire, Wheelie turns and says, "This guy's a legend," and then later Wheelie turns and says, "I tell you, this guy did not age well." These specific CGI frames of Wheelie are the very same frames, and only the background plates (with and without Jetfire) differ. (01:22:40 - 01:23:40)

Continuity mistake: In Egypt, when Sam says, "We got cops!" they're at a fork in the road, and with two police cars heading towards them from the left of the 'fork', Sam drives to the right of the 'fork'. However, in the next shot, the two police cars are driving past Bumblebee and the twins on the very same road, just before the police cars make their U-turns. (01:35:55)

Continuity mistake: When Bumblebee is battling Rampage, there's a close-up of Bumblebee as he dramatically drops his yellow faceplate over his face. In the next shot, Sam is on the ground in front of the car on its side (Rampage overturned it moments before). Problem is in the next shot Mikaela is also in front of that very same car, but Sam is gone, and she wasn't seen in the previous shot of Sam either. (02:00:30)

Continuity mistake: When Simmons is on the radio with Captain Wilder, who is aboard the USS Stennis, the radio cord around Simmons's neck is either over or under the flight jacket's fur collar, and then in the last shot the cord is suddenly off. (02:05:15)

Continuity mistake: When Lennox is trying to revive Sam, there is a close-up of the sock starting to slip out of Sam's grasp, but it's still in his hand. Then when the medics are using the paddles on Sam, clearly there is nothing in his bandaged hand. The problem is that there is another close-up of Sam's hand, after Mikaela professes her love, and the sock is still there in Sam's hand before it dramatically falls (it's the same close-up angle as the previous shot).

Transformers (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Optimus is holding Sam and Mikaela during Sector Seven's search for them, Mikaela falls, and in the shot facing up Sam hangs onto Optimus with his right hand and grabs her with his left hand. In the next overhead shot Sam now hangs onto Optimus with his left hand and holds Mikaela with his right hand. (01:26:10)

Transformers (2007)

Deliberate mistake: At the corner of the roof, Sam clutches the statue as he protects the All Spark from Megatron, who then destroys the statue causing Sam to fall. In the overhead shot of Sam falling, as the chopper flies by, we see the All Spark leave Sam's grip and actually fall behind him. Yet, in the next close-up the All Spark is safely held in Sam's arm again. (02:06:50)

Continuity mistake: Before heading into the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, when Simmons pulls the taser out of his bag and turns it on he holds it in his right hand, but in Leo's close-up as he starts to freak out, the taser's in Simmons's left hand, then it's back in Simmons's right hand, between shots. (01:20:40)

Visible crew/equipment: Before going into the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, when Simmons throws the bottle of pills at Sam and says, "Slip it under your tongue..." the reflection of the moving boom mic is visible in the car window. (01:20:35)

Continuity mistake: When Bumblebee shows up at the frat party with the horn blaring, Sam looks outside and sees the car on the lawn flashing headlights with a clean front bumper, but when Sam questions Bumblebee, there are bush branches all over the bumper. (00:35:00)

Continuity mistake: When Stoick returns from his voyage, he goes to speak to Hiccup about his son's successful dragon training. Hiccup's book ends up on the floor, then it's back on the table and the papers move about as well, while the two are together. (00:47:15)

Continuity mistake: At NEST headquarters in Diego Garcia, when Optimus points his finger at Galloway and says, "We've witnessed your human capacity for war," both of Lennox's arms are up and crossed in front of him, then they're down and clasped behind him, and then back to crossed in front of him, between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Sam is in his bedroom, after he finds the Cube sliver it falls and dramatically burns a hole through the floor into the kitchen. But Sam's bedroom is over the living room (there is nothing on the ground floor below Sam's elevated bathroom, and in the first movie Jazz hides in this open space), and the kitchen is actually located between the den and dining room, at the other end of the house. If they were to follow the actual floor plan of the house, the Cube sliver would have landed in the area of the piano in the living room, but where would the fun have been in that? (00:12:30)

Revealing mistake: When Sam, Mikaela, Simmons and Leo are being pursued by the police in Egypt, one of the police cars slams into a parked red car. This shot has been flipped. Note that the driver is on the right side, whereas in other shots the drivers are on the left. (01:32:10)
