I've kept this to myself for years but I have to get it off my chest.
So, in the 2007 movie, near the end, Sam tries to get the cube into military hands after the military tried to hide it in civilian hands(?) by handing it over to some guys in a chopper.
There's the pilot, who is Samwise Gamgee

And the dude who hangs out of the helicopter to take the cube, and who thinks new flora is better because its tastier.

I don't know if these are extras, real military types or bizarre celebrity cameos.

That is all.

I've read this four times now and I'm still not sure if you're winding us up or not.

That's pretty much what its like being inside my head when I start thinking things like this.

Are you sure the second one isn't Les Dennis?

Nope definitely Vernon Kay

It always strikes me as a bit harsh that Prime completely ignores the helicopter (despite it crashing only a few yards from him). I know he's not quite as 148% awesome in the first one, but Optimus Prime could easily catch a falling helicopter without breaking pace.

I dunno, he only just gets to sam in time as it is, and that helicopter was all over the place. He might have been able to catch it but Vernon and chum still would've died.
