    "With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet." Optimus Prime, 2007.

    So what made Sentinel believe he could do it with seven billion slaves? The only thing even close to the divine power of the AllSpark was the Matrix of Leadership, which he rejected and later had blown up by Starscream (when the Autobots left).

    I can accept the new girl after the ROTF love scene, Soundwave's time-travel (according to the comics), and Sam's non-publicity status after being manhunted, but ignoring a plot device of two films is IMO pushing it.

    Well, essentially, they need Energon. That was the Solar Harvester's job in ROTF (turn sun energy into Energon, although The Fallen just wanted to go "KILL ALL HUMANS" at that point). So, more or less, Cybertronian tech is solar powered. I'd guess that in the case of a successful takeover of Earth, the Decepticons would litteraly drain the Earth of all its energy, and then build another Solar Harvester with slave labor. The Matrix...well, I think the implication is that it can't be destroyed since it kinda turned to dust and then reformed after the whole "Robot heaven" thing in ROTF, and it survived the Solar Harvester explosion in ROTF after Prime blasted the crap out of it, so if a new Solar Harvester still needed it, all they'd need to do is find the Xanthium wreckage in whatever ocean it was over when it got blown up.

    I'm thinking Sentinel was going to use the seven billion slaves the way the machines used the human race in the Matrix films - as living batteries to power the dead planet and bring it new life.

    Optimus tells Sentinel in DOTM that there is another way to rebuild Cybertron.

    Well now they'd have to do the old fashioned why. With hard work and a lot of elbow grease. But the Autobots would rather just give up, and not bother.

    IMO with any luck, there won't be a Cybertron left to rebuild now anyway.

    Optimus wanted to rebuild Cybertron with the All Spark. Sentinel and Megatron wanted to rebuild Cybertron by transporting it to Earth. The All Spark was destroyed, and Optimus' plans were destroyed. Sentinel and Megatron's plans, however, had been planned for a long time when Megatron was still in Cybertron and the All Spark has not yet been released to space. So, the All Spark had nothing to do with it.

    "Optimus tells Sentinel in DOTM that there is another way to rebuild Cybertron."


    Not exactly. The scene goes like this:
    "What war has destroyed, we can rebuild - but ONLY if we join with the Decepticons!"
    "No, it's not the only way!"

    Optimus wasn't talking about rebuilding Cybertron, he was trying to tell Sentinel that their old home was gone and they couldn't sacrifice their new home Earth for the sake of reviving the past. Or something like that.

    In the novel, Megatron states he will take the Decepticons and head back to Cybertron to rebuild. So, Cybertron apparantly can be rebuilt through simple manual labour (or at least, made to look nicer than a war-torn hell hole)

    The Allspark, Harvester and seven billion slaves are just easier then doing it yourself.

    I'm sure they'd have easily made something up. Cybertron revived by the wonder of the Human Spirit. Or since this is Bay, Cybertron revived by the awesome power of explosions. Blow it up to save it!

    *kaboom!*

    Optimus: "Okay, that didn't work. Where do we live now?"

    Here's how I would rebuild Cybertron without the Allspark!

    Consider this:

    The AllSpark needed energy harvested from a sun in order to repower the AllSpark and thus, keep Cybertron energized.

    Bearing that in mind, the best solution to rebuild Cybertron without the Allspark is to move Cybertron next to a sun that has no life-bearing worlds or at least make one from one it's 2 moons!

    How does that sound? :inquisiti
