I never really saw them as evil, just confused and acting out, like a crying baby.

Yeah. They did that stuff because they were new life and didn't know any better.

That's...not bad. Yeah, I could get behind that idea. :BOWDOWN:


Indeed. That sounds pretty logical.

That, and Simmons said that all our technology is reverse engineered from Megatron.

What did they pull Megatron apart? Gee smart move putting it back together then. But in the story context it is fascinating to learn all our tech came from Megatron. Would that include microchips? I wonder where they found those inside Megs?

Perhaps all sparks need a shell program attached to it. that keeps it in-line,in-balance & loyal to whatever faction side that creates it. also to give it some general rules & a comprehensive data base of knowledge.

They had no idea it was a psychotic alien warlord.

It's practically a throwaway line. It could be used to explain why the AllSpark can bring everything to life, (Since it's all basically Cybertronian tech) as well as why the Cybertronians can interface so well with Earth tech. But neither of those are mentioned, and it's never brought up again.

JohnOfTardis67 wrote:Would that include microchips?


Yeah, I think they mentioned that specifically.

JohnOfTardis67 wrote:I wonder where they found those inside Megs?


Well, he's a robot. I'm assuming they found them everywhere.

And you base this on what, exactly? A race of sentient machines couldn't create themselves, but once created, like I said, it's all a matter of intelligence and innovation.

I thought we were talking about machines like computers, cars, or vacuum cleaners.

I didn't really read the thread.
