I quess it's because Bay had free hand in RotF and DotM. For me, it is safer to agree that human technicians gave Optimus some upregade between 2007 and 2009, i remember that even there was hinted in Reign of Starscream, that Earth-based technology makes Cybetronians stronger. However, this isn't the point, the point is that action movies aren't that complicated. But Bayformers is unlogical even by action movies standards, and it is hard to accept that Bay decide to turn franchise with such long tradition into typical Invasion Movie.

It depends from the frame, later we can see he's hand on fire, but eariler frames suggest that whe was hitted in heah.
