Notes

Dotm-laserbeak-game-1

Laserbeak in Dark of the Moon game

  • Unlike his counterparts from other continuities who made bird sounds and were less anthropomorphic, he speaks English. He also seems to be more based on a vulture rather than a condor.
  • Laserbeak, like Megatron from the first movie, does not fly straight and twirls and twists in flight.
  • This Laserbeak it seems can turn into multiple objects, from a printer/copier, a pink and smaller copy of "Bumblebee", a computer monitor with keyboard and mouse, and a wall-mounted television.
    • There was no logical reason for the girl to have known who Bumblebee was or what he looked like, especially considering that her father had been sworn to secrecy by the US government, was likely retired from service, and had probably never met Bumblebee.
  • This Laserbeak seems to be skilled at acting as well as disguise; when he disguises himself as the pink robot, he asks in a remarkably friendly tone of voice if the girl's father is home. When the parents walk in, he is sitting beside her on the couch while she reads to him from an open book in her lap, which suggests that he has kept up the charade for several minutes, if not longer.
  • The sounds Laserbeak makes while in his copier disguise are the notes to the theme song from The Transformers.
  • Laserbeak is the only animalistic Transformer to be capable of speech in the films.
