'Transformers 3' Characters: The Complete Guide


Laserbeak - Decepticon

Laserbeak in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: A fan-favorite Decepticon and one of Soundwave's "tapes" in the G1 series, Laserbeak serves as an assassin for the Decepticons on Earth. In Dark of the Moon, the bot is shown to take several alternate forms, including a copy machine and a flatscreen TV, but Laserbeak's robotic form is equally bizarre - a cybernetic vulture with razor-sharp talons.


Megatron - Decepticon

Megatron in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: Following his mutilation at the conclusion of Revenge of the Fallen, Megatron returns (albeit weakened and still disfigured) as a Mack tanker truck. In robot form, Megatron hides his injuries under a tattered cloak, though his propensity for power and tyranny remain intact - as does his iconic fusion cannon.


Optimus Prime - Autobot

Optimus Prime in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: Optimus Prime is the the brave leader of the Autobots - and a habitual defender of freedom. Following his "fall" in Revenge of the Fallen, Optimus now pulls his iconic tractor trailer when in Peterbilt Truck vehicle form. In battle, the trailer transforms into a storage locker that houses a variety of weaponry including combat blades, heavy duty plasma cannons, and a mech-tech jetpack.


Que - Autobot


Que Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: Que, also referred to as Wheeljack in Dark of the Moon (and other marketing materials), is an Autobot genius reminiscent of Albert Einstein. The character's name was changed in post as a nod to the James Bond inventor, Q - who more closely matches the bot's role in the film (instead of G1 Wheeljack, who was more of a mechanic). When he isn't at the base inventing weaponry for the Autobots, Que transforms into a blue Mercedes-Benz E550 for public appearances.


Ratchet - Autobot

Ratchet in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: Returning once again as the Autobot field medic, as well as a science officer, Ratchet remains one of Optimus Prime's most trusted teammates. While Ratchet still transforms into a Hummer H2 Search and Rescue Sport Utility Truck, in Dark of the Moon the character receives a minor color palette tweak (ditching yellow for lime green).


Sentinel Prime - Autobot

Sentinel Prime in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: Sentinel Prime is Optimus Prime's predecessor and mentor - as well as the "Einstein" of the Cybertronian race. Sentinel invented space bridge technology before being marooned on Earth's moon after the destruction of the Ark. On Earth, Sentinel transforms into a Rosenbauer Panther 6x6 airport fire truck - and wields dual blades in hand-to-hand combat.


Shockwave - Decepticon

Shockwave in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: Shockwave is one of the Decepticon's most brilliant minds as well as deadliest warriors - and is fiercely devoted to Megatron. In addition to taming the infamous Driller creature, Shockwave terrorizes the Autobot resistance fighters with an arm-mounted AstroMag Cannon - and ice cold dedication to his mission. The Decepticon has no alternate form in the film but transforms into a Cybertronian tank in the Hasbro toy line.


Sideswipe - Autobot

Sideswipe in Transformers Dark of the Moon

Description: One of the most exciting Autobots in Revenge of the Fallen (after dispatching Decepticon Sideways in acrobatic style), Sideswipe mostly disappeared from the remainder of the film. In Dark of the Moon, the Corvette Stingray Concept car gets a number of moments to shine - utilizing his deadly close-combat arm blades to help beat -back the Decepticon assault in Chicago.
