    I just had a twisted thought today and figured it might be interesting to share.

    Remember Dylan's classic car collection?

    What if those old cars were all Seekers he's just keeping around in stasis lock? Like Laserbeak and Soundwave hunted the Autobot Seekers down and had Dylan watch over them to make surethey didn't try to ruin the plans they were making or something.

    It puts an odd spin on the scene where he's talking about the car resembling the perfect woman's body. Fembot seeker perhaps?

    That would've been great. Unfortunately, the writing for the movies never got that good.

    I made a thread about it.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...lan-jerks-car-collection-seeker-trophies.html

    Do you wonder why there are hardly any Seekers left? Because in his zealousness to keep the Ark secret from the Fallen Soundwave had the Seekers tracked down.

    Those Seekers that threaten the plan and are close to uncovering Megatron's deal with Sentinel Prime are eliminated by Soundwave.

    Becoming trophies. That car museum of Dylan's? Among those are Soundwave's trophy collection of dead Seekers.

    Oh man, didn't realize you made a thread about it already.

    Great minds think alike, huh? :)

    Okay, I'm saying hi for him. He's still an Autobot.

    Well, do we really know that for sure?

    I mean, Seekers worked for the Primes to find suns to harvest...when the Fallen betrayed them and formed the Decepticons, I don't think its that much of a stretch to think some of them joined the Autobots.

    Seeker is descriptive term much like Bumblebee labeled as a Guardian.

    Wheelie described the Seekers as the oldest of the old (Decepticons) looking for something (Matrix of Leadership) on Earth.

    The Autobots are a much younger faction hence they do not have Seekers.

    That doesn't mean whatever survivors of the Six Primes followers did not impede the Fallen's followers. In their case they don't seek they guard.

    There is some implication with the ruins of Petra that the tomb was found before and further hidden. This along with cyberglyphs and the Giza Pyramid are clues and attempts to hide Transformer artifacts on Earth.

    All of the seekers were desciples of The Fallen. Jetfire reformed, but now The Fallen's dead, they have no real purpose but to fight in the war as Decepticons. It could be an option for a fourth instalment... In the right hands.

    In RotF when Simmons is showing photographs of known Transformers, one of the photos is Ransack (he's not mentioned, but he has a toy figure in the RotF toy line) and the other one is an old automobile.
    So the scene when we see the collection made me squee. May they be Autobot prisoners? Or simply.... trophies?

    I love this theory. Not only is that a perfectly good explanation for what happened to the other Seekers, it also gives a little, twisted touch to the scene in the movie that wouldn't be there without it. You guys made me enjoy this scene even more. Good job.
