    So just did the Autobots get from America to China? Did they transform into some sort of boat, hitch a ride on a human boat, take a human aircraft or take a new Autobot jet transport?

    Presumably the same way the human military got there.

    Maybe the military lent them a cargo plane for traveling. I can see them doing that. A car only gets you so far.

    I'm guessing they get a plane from the military to travel around in. Either that or a huge Autobot comes to earth and turns into something they can travel around in. On a side note, I'm thinking Ratchet will either be in less scenes than in the first one, or he's a bot they leave at their base of operations. That way he can repair them in a secure environment, and with all the equipment he would need to do so. Would be nice to actually see him do something as a medic other than shoot some sort of beam at Bumblebee's throat.

    Would be nice to have them come back to base and be greeted by an irate, ranting Ratchet hehe.
    But yeah i think they would have a base and all established now, so keeping Ratchet there would be a smart idea, besides he's not supposed to like battle anyway.

    More than likely they would have access to large carrier planes of cargo ships to go where they need.

    You know thats an excellent subject and I was thinking to same thing since I ve saw these pics and rumors about that ''chinese factory''... In other words, Autobots are in the US right... So you re right, how in the hell did they fly or swim all over to China and probably other locations in the world... Hum... I guess they will use a US military boat or cargo plane.... An even with ''Jetfire'' they cant fit in... Hum....

    Would be pretty simple for the military to get those few trucks and cars onto a giant cargo plane or a large boat.

    When watching a film about the gulf war people don't start going "ZOMG how did those tanks get to iraq, they can't fly or go underwater!!!1"

    I brought this up when we first saw pics of prime in china. Transporting a 6 ton big rig to china, would take 2 months. I honestly hope he somehow flies there.

    Seaspray DUH! He was the astrotrain of the bots if you will and there was a cut scene from the '86 movie with prime dying on him but was best cut cause ultramagnus tossed op in the ocean and they thought he'd look like the mafia.
