    Why did Blackout show up in the middle East and yet all of the other Decepticons were in America? Why not just stay in the US and attack a US military base here?

    When Prime scanned the glasses for the coordinates, where were they? Just some random building? They weren't in town anymore, and the weren't at the dam. I am kinda lost on that one...

    According to the Official Movie Guide: Blackout has the weakest armor amongst the movie Decepticons (aka) Starscream's Brigade. His mission was to get info on the possible location of Megatron & the Allspark. Using his MH-53J alternate mode which was apparently shot down in the Middle East, he probably chose the SOCCENT base due to minor security/defense threat level & the fact that it may have been the closest base to his current whereabouts.

    The other Decepticons where on standbye in various military locations while, Barricade/Frenzy & Blackout continued recon on finding information.
    Due to function & alternate modes Starscream,Bonecrusher & Brawl simply wouldn't work well with spying & undercover missions.

    Blackout's blatant attack was probably a test of Earth defenses and the signal that the hiding was over.


    See the comic prequels for more details. Or watch the Prequel dvd that came with the Walmart DVD.



    The Autobots are at Grittith observatory which is in LA, California. Apparently it was closed that early in the morning so no people around. And apparently it wasn't to far from Sam's Home town of Tranquility.

    Eyeglass shopping in America

    I think it was Megatron who saved the AllSpark's location in the eyeglasses. At that time, the location was in the Arctic. Later on, we are told the eyeglasses location now point to Hoover Dam in America. I don't know how the map in the eyeglasses changed from an Arctic location to Hoover Dam. Maybe Megatron somehow changed the map in the eyeglasses when he was transferred to Hoover Dam with the AllSpark. The Autobots may have been able to intercept the Megatron message about the eyeglasses so both the Autobots and Decepticons were in America shopping for a pair of eyeglasses which led them to Sam. The Autobots and Decepticons are probably not internet savvy bec. they missed the eyeglasses listing on Ebay or maybe they don't have the money to bid. Blackout was in the Middle East probably bec. that was where he landed. I am sure Blackout wanted to land in America also but he somehow ended up in the Middle East. Or Blackout decided to stay in the Middle East bec. the American bases there were more vulnerable and most of the other Decepticons headed to America.

    The Cube was always in the same place, Megatron was the one that got lost because of the interference from the north pole. The location etched in the glasses was always the same. The bots didnt know about the glasses until BB found out about Sam and his grandfather.

    Yeah the dam was built around the Allspark to hide it.
