Something that puzzled me with Dark of the Moon was that how the Autbots got captured? A couple of points I'd like to state: Bumblebee was with Sam about 5 minutes before he was captured, just minutes after Starscream's death. Yet when Dutch hacks into the cameras, Bumblebee is captured. Secondly, when Dutch does hack into the cameras, they state 4 Autobots have been captured, those being Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Que/Wheeljack and Mirage/Dino. Ratchet is not among them. Thirdly, the next time we see the Autobots, we see Ratchet struggling with a protoform just before he is thrown to the ground. This puzzles me because I am unsure whether the other 4 Autobots were captured seperately or in a group, but it is obvious Ratchet was captured last. Did he just see a large concentration of Decepticons and decide to try and rescue his comrades or did he unwittingly walk into them, which doesn't seem like Ratchet, because Ratchet is Ratchet. And when Ratchet and the Protoform fighting, all the other Decepticons are just standing around watching. Ok? Lastly, when Bumblebee turns and fights Soundwave, there are what, 15 Decepticons including Barricade hanging around? Towards the start of their fight we see several Protoforms rushing to his aid, one of which Bumblebee shoots in the head several times, yet the other Decepticons have vanished? We do see Dino/Mirage on the edge of the screen leading us to believe many of the protoforms are fighting the other 3 Autobots yet you can still clearly see 5 or so running to aid Soundwave. What I did notice is that when Soundwave fires a blast, two of the Protoforms mysteriously vanish? Friendly fire? Was Soundwave that bad at fighting that he killed several of his own men? And later, Barricade blames some of the escaped Protoforms for Soundwave's death? Shouldn't Barricade blame Soundwave for Soundwave's death as after all, if my observations are correct, Soundwave accidently killed several of his own men. Discuss. Anything else others have noticed? Something in the novels which may explain?
