*SPOILERS* Just a Few Questions Regarding DOTM....*SPOILERS*

Motto: "Stay silent, then fire away !"
Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
I still have a few questions about the movie with stuff I still don't get

1. When Bumblebee said, "Sam, makes me.... sad" was that the radio or was that really him ?
2. Does Shockwave have one or two english lines ? (I swear I heard him say get down when he shot Prime into those wires)
3. Why is Sentinel already in an earth mode when he's dormant in the ship, is that like what Teletraan did in G1 or is it just laziness ?
4. WHAT TOOK BARRICADE SO LONG, Is it explained in the comics or was he just busy working for minimum wage cleaning Space Bridges ?

I thought I also heard him yell something like that when he shot Prime down, but it really could have been just a frustrated grunt about the Driller getting offed.

Honestly, it was probably such a minute detail that they didn't feel like it was worth the money and effort it took to give him a new design just for the few seconds he was shown on the Moon. The TF fan in me just comes up with the explanation that it is possible for him to look exactly the same in Cybertronian robot mode as it does in Earth robot mode. And since we never saw Sentinel's Cybertronian vehicle mode, I'm not wrong. :P

And Barricade was just a casualty of the writers' laziness, on both the 2007 movie and DotM. He was just another horribly mistreated Decepticon. He did have a part in the prequel novel to RotF where Optimus beats the crap out of him and he barely escapes with his life.

And FYI, you're only allowed to have 1 sig pic.

Barricade was mentioned in the novel Prequal to ROTF "a veiled threat" http://www.tower.com/transformers-veile ... /112523011 when starscream sets a trap for Optimus.
New pics added as I find time.

1.) Radio.
2.) 1
3.) Laziness, most likely.
4.) Explained in the comics, but they're not canon, really. The moviegoing public has no idea they exist. Easier explanation? He wasn't in ROTF's script, so no screen time. Almost like a tv show. lol

I'm pretty sure Sentinel Prime is in Cybertronian mode when Optimus and Ratchet find him. Receiving an earth mode probably took place off screen before his revival. He seems to have a more orange/yellow hue while on the moon.

Sentinel did have some slight differences before he got to Earth. He didn't have wheels on his chest and legs on the ark, they were just metal discs.

Nope. It was Barricade. Just no voice actor this time.

Frank does his voice. Unfortunately, he does it in his Soundwave voice, so you can't tell the difference.

I was wondering why Barricade and Soundwave sounded very similar in the movie. Now I know.

He didn't, probably in order to make sure he didn't get paid more than any of the other voice actors (as he did Soundwave and Shockwave, he gets paid for doing two voice roles, while everyone else had one character and only gets paid for one.)
