When compared to other Transformers series, the movie Transformers don't seem to have the longevity, or the endurance of the others. I mean think about it; in the movies how easy it is for Transformers to get killed in a fight? When the war first broke out; how did it not last an hour until the species drove itself to extinction? With Sentinals rust cannon alone he could have taken out half an army. How did this war last thousands of years? I'm surprised Optimus can take the beating he can, all of the other robots drop with the slightest damage. So my question is, how did this war last so long? How can the Transformers live thousands of years, but only have 30 second battles?
