... get the good shit?"
Despite the gripes and complaints that arose from the DOTM movie, there were some really good moments and lines too, and I don't want to forget that. This line is something that I'm sure echoes the thought that has crossed the mind of many a fan. Of course I know now it's because in the original conception it was decided that the bad guys line would consist of military vehicles, which all look damn cool. But even as a little kid I couldn't imagine why on earth the Autobots couldn't figure out how to fly (except that one G1 episode where they did!)
I'm sure their alt mode has nothing to do with it, since G1 Megatron, Soundwave, Reflector etc all could fly. Wonder if it was ever explained anywhere, including the comics?
Personally, it's my favourite line because it encompasses a lot: humour in and of itself, and an inside nod to a question that's plagued me for years
