    Also comics should be considered canon because that would explain why Jolt, the surviving Arcee and the Twins not make it to the screen.

    i agree & the comics were damn good..let's be realistic..jolt & the twins, chromia..99.9% chance they never show up in the filmverse again so this may as well be considered canon unless overruled by what we see on screen..like wheelie, topspin, & barricade who were considered "more than likely dead" until tlk proved otherwise..although barricade was hinted at still being alive in aoe..as we all know, the rules don't really apply to him..he is bay's boy!

    you are not wrong..when i do my stats for the films..i count them as kills for ironhide but sideswipe does get an assist..just like that protoform gets an assist for killing que or ironhide getting an assist for demolisher

    But on second thought....in the end of TLK Prime sent a message to all autobots, saying it's time to go home. Maybe this implies there are still bots stranded in Earth (Like RB and Sideswipe) and they are free to return now?

    i am totally open to that as well..believe me..if swipe ever shows up again im gonna be pumped! (or any other old bot..i was pumped for topspin for crying out loud)...silly me, i thought in aoe when that car shows up with no driver (wtf was that about) i thought that was swipe...turned out to be shane...not a great way to introduce a character; teasing a transformer & it turns out to be some dude..

    Trench is not a character disappearance until we see if he is in the TLK sequel or not.Same with Alliance,Jetstorm,Hot Rod,and Barricade.

    It's obvious that they moved on with their careers.

    Sideswipe became the first transformer to win a roller derby
    Arcee and her two sisters did other films let's just say you can find them on sites you block so kids don't watch them.
    Jolt became a teacher using his whips to hit kids that don't act right.
    Reedman became a rapper.
    scalpel was arrested for Jewish hate speech.
    Dino rejoined the mafia.
    Brains got married to Alice from ROTF.
    Skids and Mudflap got a show on comedy central.
    Igor has an upcoming move with Tom Cruise
    Roadbuster became a voice actor for Pixar films
    Scorn is now a youtuber who does memes and vlogs
    Strafe has retired from acting to live with her kids
    Sadly the watchbot died he overdosed on energon.

    so I guess Optimus never recovered the matrix of leadership off-screen like he did in the novelization and comic?

    bay is a dummy that can't remember his own movies or characters, I'm taking the comics as canon. They even released an animated version of the prequel comic bundled with the first movie with voice acting from the movie cast. It doesn't get much more official than that.

    Except you know, when things happen in a movie that are direct results of a previous movie.

    I have a theory: What if Sideswipe is alive but to hide from humanity, he disguised himself as Lennox in TLK? And Roadbuster became human form as "Rodrigo" in Cuba.
