    After he betrayed the Autobots and switched to the Decepticons, he was ordering them around in Chicago so does that make him a Con now or that just make him an Autobot ordering Cons around? Would make better sense if he was now a Con. Does anyone else see this problem?

    I don't see a problem.

    I mean, he DIED. Doesn't matter what faction he is, he won't be doing anything anymore.

    First off: I seriously doubt you need to put a spoiler warning in the title. The movie was released awhile ago and the majority of people here own it. Second: his motivation wasn't driven by the same intentions as Megatron's. He was only using them for his own doings (preserving Cybertron, oppose to Megatron ruling it). So yes, he had authority over them, but wasn't necessarily a member of the faction.

    I wondered from the very minute that Sentinel betrayed the Autobots whether his toy should have an Autobot or Decepticon logo on them.

    He basically would have been, if he'd lived and the Autobots were defeated - they would have all been killed, leaving Sentinel to rule over the Decepticons on Cybertron/Earth.

    One thing's for sure, he was no longer an Autobot when he died.

    Maybe they'll come out with a repaint of the Leader and/or Voyager toys (they've already done the Cyberverse toy). Like ROTF Jetfire, who bore Decepticon logos, despite the box marketing him as an Autobot.

    Technically he's scrap metal now, not a Con.

    I personally think of him as a renegade Autobot.

    That would apply. We should also remember he was the leader of their race before Megatron and his forces caused a civil war.

    No. Just an extremist Autobot.

    What I don't understand is why would he call the Autobots rebels and have them excile from Earth?

    if you watch the movie pause it at the part when sam is in the hanger talking the that bitch at about 1 hour 22 minutes in. if you look closely the white jet in the background has the autobot insignia on the folded tip of its wing and also right next to its door. im not positive but i think this was going to be silverbolt or one of the flying autobots but ended up getting cut. any thoughts bay?????

    ^ At BluRayHiDef... uh, wrong thread?

    Well he's dead, Jim. He's nothing right now.

    But I liked what Nachtsider said. An extremist Autobot. Really, he did have good intentions, he was just an utter monster about it.

    I wouldn't call Sentinel a con.
