Michael Bay surprised ShoWest attendees at the final night banquet with roughly two minutes of footage never before shown to audiences.
Sam (Shia LaBeouf) and Mikaela (Megan Fox) enter a garage where Bumblebee is sitting. It appears he’s having trouble with his voice still, but Sam says he’s just playing. Mikaela says she’ll wait outside while they talk. Sam wants to talk to Bumblebee about going away to college and the fact that he can’t take him. He wants to have a normal college life and he can’t do that with Bumblebee around. Bumblebee is noticeably upset and there’s a shot of him “crying” windshield wiper fluid, which got a big laugh from the audience.
While the Bumblebee and Sam are having this conversation, Mikaela is seen outside the garage stripping off her leather jacket and pants to reveal a white dress underneath. Sam walks out of the garage and sees Mikaela and says, “Wow.”
Cut to about a minute of roughly assembled action sequences showing the various battles that will take place in the movie between the Autobots and Decepticons. Mixed in with this is a slow motion shot of Megan and Shia running and John Turturro yelling into a radio. In one battle sequence, Optimus Prime spits out a piece of metal after getting hit in the face. The crowd responded favorably to the footage, which Bay described as being quickly thrown together for the event.
