** Prime's trailer. We've been waiting for it for two films and it doesn't disappoint. Not only does it turn into a badass flying harness, but, like the original, it opens up into a base... which is fully stocked with dozens of weapons.
** Optimus Prime. Buzz Aldrin. Meeting one another and, with the utmost humility and sincerity, saying that it is an honor.
** Simmons, when he's not being [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments a walking CMOF]], he's usually being this...helps that he's CrazyAwesome.

*** And just before he does it, his face-guard pops up to cover his mouth, making it as close to the ''original'' Optimus putting Megatron down permanently as we're ever likely to see.
*** The dialogue in that scene really sells it too. Megatron boasts "Who would you be without ME, Prime?" Optimus has had it. He knows Megatron will never come back from the atrocities he's done. He's pointing a gun at him while suing for peace. Of all the times in the franchise Optimus has let Megatron get away, had him escape, or never [[spoiler: just shoot him]] this is it. Optimus is done with Megatron and now decides it's time to live his life [[spoiler: without his eternal foe. Megatron won't get away this time.]]

** They managed to put 6 foot tall human infantry next to 20 foot tall Autobots and convincingly portray them as BashBrothers. Special props go to the guy who jumped on the back of ''[[TheBrute Shockwave]].''

*** An even more awesome moment in the novel because [[spoiler: Starscream [[DeathByAdaptation ruthlessly kills Mirage]] right before]] so when Sam [[EyeScream stabs him in the eye]], he screams "[[AndThisIsFor That's for ]][[spoiler: Mirage]] you [[PrecisionFStrike son of a bitch]]!"

*** To elaborate further: [[spoiler: Sam uses a Batman-certified grapple glove to latch onto Starscream's [[EyeScream optic]], then gets hoisted into the air and tossed into walls, before finally getting his bearings and jamming an explosive device into [[EyeScream his ''other eye'']], which then detonates and takes off ''half of Starscream's head'' before finally backfiring and destroying the Decepticon's spark.]]
