A Transformer's alternate mode (common name for vehicle mode) has to fit within certain boundaries, and they use holograms and other minor tricks to make this alternate mode look like something similar to the world they're on. As such, a Transformer with a car altmode may be able to choose what kind of car within a range of cars he transforms into, but he ...

There's no certain answer as you said it. But for me it wasn’t poor scripting. It’s an everyday situation that 80-90% of the world experiences. You have to gain trust before you can betray them. You can’t betray someone when you don’t have their trust. Yes, we know, Sentinel is being trusted when the Matrix was offered. But do we know for sure that Optimus ...

The AllSpark and The Matrix of Leadership were special artifacts, that had sufficient energy to reignite a Transformer's Spark. Other than that, Transformers can die for sure. In all the cases you mentioned, the Transformer had died, except Case 8. To generalize, damage to a Transformer's Spark effectively kills it. Also, physically ripping out a ...

Why? For Cybertron! It looks like that the Autobots consider Earth their new home, and they don't want to rebuild Cybertron. Decepticons, instead, want to rebuild Cybertron. Sentinel's love for his home planet overcomes his loyalty to his fellows Autobots. He explains it in the movie (even if I acknowledge that dialogues often get lost between Bay's ...

Who better to answer this than Sentinel himself? Sentinel: Commencing transport. Optimus: Stop! No, no, no Sentinel! Sentinel: Forgive me. Optimus: Autobots, retreat. Why Sentinel, why? Sentinel: For Cybertron. For our home. What war destroyed, we can rebuild. But only if we join with the Decepticons. Optimus: No, it's not the ...

In the film universe: Yes! While the humans were capable of taking down a few Decepticons on their own, keep in mind that had Sentinel's plan succeeded, and Cybertron had been teleported right next to earth, no amount of human forces would've been sufficient to stop the Decepticons. The only reason it didn't succeed was because the Autobots intervened. Even ...

According to the video game, it was a target of opportunity to escape the Decepticon base, which was being invaded by the Autobots. To escape the base you must go through multiple fan tunnels, spawn many hatchlings to do your bidding, and kill the Autobots. When going through the tunnels, you come across a truck which is Megatron's alternate form in TF3. ...

Sentinel quite clearly states though that he was headed to Earth on a deal with Megatron years ago before he got intercepted and crashed on the moon. He had already betrayed the Autobots before his little nap. There was no sudden change of motive within the movie, he was literally covering his ass and deceiving the autobots. Therefore there still doesn't ...

I think it happened because Sentinel Prime was not working for the Decepticons. He just wanted to save his planet. He would have been thinking that if he took the Matrix and the Decepticons got it, it will not be good for the world so he refused.

It was because he wanted Optimus to see what he saw and join him. In his mindset Ironhide was in his way and as most others just fleas. But Optimus was different to him. He was Optimus mentor for some time even (as Optimus mentions once) and Optimus even would have given him the Matrix just before the betrayal. Still though he did NOT interfere when the ...

According to the Transformers wiki, he was killed by Cemetery Wind offscreen sometime after the battle of Chicago. However that was not sourced and all I could find was Michael Bay decided not to cast roles for Sideswipe in Transformers: Age of Extinction and again in Transformers: The Last Knight.

In the cartoons it is explained that they are powered by Energon, which also powers thier laser AND projectile weaponry. Energon can convert energy into mass, basically nuclear fusion. And this is how they essentially change shape while transforming and pull ammo out of thin air. In the movies, where they have been designed with more conventional weaponry, ...

Age of Extinction: Here are a few that I think, but I'm trying to identify the sources: When he says "This child is about to...kick your ass." I believe the "kick your ass" part is Woody Harrelson from White Men Can't Jump since it's one of the few movies credited in the end credits. Can't identify the first part. "You talk to me like that?" No idea. "...

"You're wonderful, you're wonderful." is by Tom Cruise, though we don't know which movie it appears in.
