The dinobot question earlier brought up another question I have always wondered about the '86 Movie. When Optimus is on his death bed he intends to pass the Matrix to Ultra Magnus as every one knows but it slips out of his hands and Hot Rod catches it. By Prime dropping, Magnus never touching it, and Hot Rod being the first to touch it after Prime drops it, did the Matrix accidentally get passed to Hot Rod instead of Magnus as Prime intended. When Hot Rod graps it before hitting the floor the screen gets all blue and stuff, which I see as Hot Rod acctually having the Matrix passed to him. This is one one reason I see as Magnus not being able to "Unleash" the power of the Matrix on the Planet of Junk and Hot Rod later being able to do inside Unicron. Any one else think that too? Second part of the question, assuming the above, is if the Matrix acctually was handed cleanly to Ultra Magnus. Would Magnus have been able to "Deal With It" and been able to open the Matrix and destroy Unicron. Yes the movie would not have been as dramatic as having Hot Rod rise up and all that, but just a wondering question. I realize all this would probably not have held water later in the series and would be a huge plot hole, but come on it's not like there aren't any to begin with. I am just thinking from the movie point of view alone and not taking into account the comics either, which I am not sure if anyone else opened the Matrix but I recall a few Decepticons carrying it.
