    If I'm not mistaken, isn't outernspace colder than the Artic? How did BB and megs keep frozen in liquid nitrogen but they all made it threw space? Oh well, not bashing, I loved the movie.

    thouché...could be that there is no water in space either, whereas there is water in the air on earth no matter where you are, so i guess the water got mixed into their parts and froze... satellites in space dont suffer from the cold, but if you put one through a rainstorm and then stuck it in your freezer, it would definitely stop working.

    They also mentioned that Earth's poles could've screwed up Megatron, causing him to shut down and crash. He then got buried under ice and was eventually frozen over.

    As for refreezing and Bumblebee, I suppose the above post covers that well enough, imo

    It could also have been that they weren't configured for cold at the time.

    They have heaters 'n' shit to keep them warm in space, but when Megs fist came to Earth, our poles threw him off and he got knocked out cold in the arctic. Not being able to stay warm, he froze.

    In the pre-quel, Megs lands and melts threw the ice. He was fine untill he got to cold. It must be the water getting inside all the exposed parts. Makes sense about the satellites.

    Well, BB and Megs were both frozen in bot mode, and with these TF designs a lot of bits and pieces are quite exposed in bot mode. Plus, you never actually see any TF functioning in space. Maybe the Autobots were actually shut down in their protoform shells, especially since they really didn't seem to have any control over where they were landing, and were defrosted during entry into the atmosphere.

    I'm guessing they took a cue from Beast Wars, in that their alternate modes also protect them from environmental hazards.

    In the prequel he was coming in hot from atmospheric entry.

    Landing on thin ice of the Artic he made a mistake.

    Sinking to the icy depth with his overheated superstructure he went into shock shuting down.

    Outer Space technically is not 'cold' but simply has no heat. Things cannot freeze without moisture, and space is devoid of that.

    Temperature in space doesn't work the same way that it does in an atmosphere, on account of it being a vacuum, and it doesn't really have its own temperature as such. As to the temperature of objects in space, it apparently depends on how well it absorbs and emits radiation, what heating sources are nearby, and slightly on the object generating internal energy. Also it sounds like heat loss in space is slow, due to a lack of particles to transfer energy to (apparently freezing to death in the vacuum of space is not an immediate worry for humans).

    So... from all that, it seems possible that a being adapted to dealing with space might have issues with atmospheric temperatures.

    Yeah, but TFs contain fluid as evidenced by BB taking a robo-leak on John Turturro...

    Liquids in space are more at risk of boiling than freezing.

    There can be no argument made against this....for thermodynamics says so......

    However...the Bumblebee 'peeing' part...he would only would have liquid here...since his alt mode had a gas tank...he had liquid in him...surely the engine didn't run on fuel...So it was just part of the disguise....

    Thats what I tell myself....lol

    also, remember Megs crashed several thousand years ago. climate was far colder in the north. Any machine, (space jet or otherwise) would have a hard time surviving if it crashed during an ice-age blizzard.

    IIRC, the prequel comic said he had burned up almost all of his energon getting to Earth. Falling into the ice took him by surprise so badly he couldn't even fly away before the freezing salt water got into his systems.
