    .. So why the heck are al cybertrons macguffins landing near earth?

    I remember somebody saying before its coz the allspark was drawn to the nearest harvester, which makes sense, but now with a third coincidence..

    Because the story takes place on Earth, and there are no humans on Mumu-Obscura?

    Unless Sentinel Prime was also looking for the Allspark.

    Isn't that like the whole theme of the movies, Earth and Cybertron are closely connected?

    Yeah, I think the Allspark is the easiest explanation. I'm assuming that the plot of TF3 is
    Sentinel Prime was on a mission to find the Allspark. The gravity of the moon screwed up the telemetry of his ship and he crash landed on the moon and wound up in stasis mode. Shockwave was probably following Sentinel, and likely crashed on the moon and entered stasis mode. At some point in the events of DOTM the US government wakes up both Sentinel and Shockwave, and the rest is history.

    Reminds me of people complaining about the symbiote in Spiderman 3, with it being "just oh so convenient" for it to land right by Peter.

    Cause, you know, the movie is about him and dealing with the symbiote, of course it landed by him, if it landed near and bonded with someone else...it would be a different movie.

    To suit the purposes of the story, of course.

    Sentinel Prime was on an expedition, probably noted a huge source of energy on earth but crashed on the moon. Then the allspark landed on earth. And Megatron shortly afterwards.

    Sentinel may even have been looking for the Matrix. Who knows.

    yeah its not such a big deal really, but so much coincidence is lazy writing, I cant be the only one on these boards who likes a well set up narrative.
