    In the first movie when Frenzy finds the Allspark he tells Starscream, then he say's all Decepticons mobilize. In the second movie Lennox mentions that Demolisher was the sixth Decepticon contact in eight months. Why wouldn't those Decepticons respond to Starscreams call?

    Because they weren't on Earth yet.

    Soundwave and that fleet? Soundwave doesn't really care about either Starscream or the Fallen. His loyalty is to Megatron.

    Because not all of them could make it to the Hoover Dam or Mission City in the space of a half-hour?

    Soundwave is loyal to The Fallen cause The Fallen made the cons

    I think it's simply that many of them couldn't get there in time. Soundwave was obviously on/near Earth and who knows how many others were just not close enough either.

    It makes sense when you watch the scene. He calls on all Decepticons, and the ones who can actually do anything heed the call. We didn't need 12 scenes of random 'cons saying "sorry, too far away" or "nah, screw Megatron".

    Besides stuff people pointed out, there are two other likely possibilities:

    - Frenzy's communication systems weren't powerful enough to reach the rest of the 'Cons.

    - The rest of the 'Cons were scattered across the galaxy, and were only contacted when Starscream reached them [in-betweens the first and the second movies].

    Soundwave kept the fact Sentinel Prime was still alive secret from the Fallen.

    Sentinel Prime was Megatron's trump card to get rid of the Fallen to consolidated Decepticon leadership.

    If Megatron planned to have the Fallen killed, why did he react in horror when Optimus killed him?

    They werent on Earth yet.

    In Demolishor's package, (Voyager version) it says that he arrived to Earth to protect a small Decepticon community in China, after Megatron's Death in TF1.

    So, thats why they didn't respond to that call.

    Unlimited Energon down the drain. Optimus blew the Harvester. Now nobody can fix it.

    Megatron was playing both the Fallen and Sentinel Prime its just with Optimus he can never sell.

    ROTF Join me and give me that human even if the Fallen wants Optimus dead.
    Optimus: I'll take you all on!

    DOTM Megatron offers a truce and want to be in charge and where will Optimus be without him?
    Optimus: Lets find out.
