See my previous post right before this one. He did not send it to Earth, he sent it to the Alkaris Anomaly. The AllSpark went to Earth on its own, drawn there by The Fallen's Great Machine.


I know he didn't sent it to Earth on purpose. But if he hadn't jettisoned it off Cybertron, it never would have found its way to Earth in the first place.
If he hadn't jettisoned it, Megatron would have seized it and won in the end, and that's a BAD thing.


It definitely was The Fallen's fault initially, but Optimus still feels like it's his responsibility for involving the humans, I'm sure. That's my point.

In the end, I don't know if Prime deserves to be on here for his interpretation in the movies. All I know is I can watch this all day:

And this here why I love the movies.



The movies have some great battle scenes and do what the T.V shows don't do most of the time which is killing both Bots and Cons in quite gruesome ways that only the IDW comics have come close to being.

Yes. Now go to your room and don't play with yourself.

That's just the kind of person that most Optimuses are, putting all the burdens of themselves even when said burdens aren't directly their fault.

Agreed with this + I somehow get a lot of joy from the minimal story and character development.
Or I just fantasize the missing parts. Or that I have a lot of knowledge about the characters from
previous Transformers incarnations. Anyway, I stopped bothering being bothered about the silly
humor at parts. The somewhat simple plotlines. And focus more on the good plotlines and great
action that is unique.

And of course a lot is all a matter of opinion. But I love the last 2 movies and the forrest
battle in ROTF was the greatest combat scene I have ever seen in my whole entire life.
