When does he ever say this in the movies? I know that the comics state that the Allspark was drawn to the Matrix and harvester on Earth, but there's nothing from the films that states this. If one simply watches the movies, the general impression is that the Allspark somehow winds up in space, coincidentally crashes on the same planet the Fallen tried to destroy, and later Sentinel Prime coincidentally crashes on the moon.
Everything between primes sacrificing themselves and ROTF is not mentioned in the movie so I dont know here to put him into my time line above.
This is one of my biggest issues with the movie storyline. The Fallen is on Earth, the Primes steal the Matrix and then blow themselves up to entomb it underground a few miles from the Harvester, and then thousands of years later, the Fallen is crash landed on Saturn's moon, directing the Decepticon invasion.
There's absolutely nothing that tells us what happened between these two points in time. I mean...based only on the information presented in the movie, the Fallen was on Earth along with a number of other Decepticons (including Jetfire) after the Primes committed mass suicide. Since the only beings capable of killing him were gone, there was absolutely nothing to stop him from tearing the planet apart to find the Matrix and then activate the Harvester. I realize he didn't know the Matrix was buried just a few miles away, but you'd think in 17,000 years he would have been able to find it.
The comics state that the Fallen killed all the Primes but one, and the last survivor trapped the Fallen in another dimension. Even if we are to accept this as part of the movie canon, I don't see the point in entombing the Matrix on Earth. If one Prime survived he could have just taken the Matrix back to Cybertron and guarded it there.
And this isn't even getting into the question of how the Fallen (or any Decepticon for that matter) could steal the Matrix if it has to be earned.
