Ever since the first Transformers movie was released in 2007, the world has been filled with giant robots. The first movie was a smashing success, earning more than $890 million at the box office when adjusted for inflation to 2020. That's a huge amount of money, and it didn't take long for Michael Bay and company to come back for a sequel. By 2018, the franchise had six feature films under its belt with more on the way.
To bring the movies to life, special effects artists had to create realistic vehicles and the robots they turned into, which wasn't easy. More than that, the films are filled with Easter eggs and callbacks to the toys, comics, and animated series that they're based upon, but some of these details went by unnoticed by more than a few fans.
Of course, the internet is filled with people who pay close attention to these things, and the ones who find something interesting about a movie head to the MovieDetails subreddit to share their findings. This list comprises the most interesting of those, so take a look down below, and if you find something you didn't already know, go ahead and give it an upvote to see which small detail from the Transformers movies reaches the top!
