    I went to youtube.com and typed in Transformers War Dawn so I could view the episode. In file 3/3 , the Decepticons spot a Guardian robot laid-out in a pile of rubble. Megatron asks Shockwave if it can be repaired; Blinky says its mobility would be greatly hindered due to lack of a head. Then, at 3:23 into part 3/3, Megatron blasts a Guardian robot directly in the head - wiping out the head- and it falls into a... pile of rubble!

    What are the chances that the headless robot Shockwave is repairing is the same one? What are the chances a Guardian robot would be laying in one spot for 9 million years?

    It's not likely that it would have lain there for so long. One solution is that since most of Cybertron is made of metal there is not that much erosion and since the chamber it was found (speculation) was sealed and dry rust may not have been a problem. TF's do live a long time also.

    I always figured it was the same robot. One of the great rules of writing is if you're going to fire a gun in act 3, you show it on the wall in act 1. Far be it to expect the original cartoon to follow such a writing convention so strictly, but in my opinion, the shot of the Guardian getting its head blown off would be to explain how the one in the present day ended up headless.
    As for leaving it lying around for millions of years, they've been at war. It probably got left by the wayside, its components useless for salvage because of their specialist nature, and nobody bothering to clear it away since they were all so busy fighting.

    Also, if you subscribe to the idea of a big shutdown, that would account for about four million years worth of lying around.

    I also presumed that over 9 million years TF techology would have advanced far enough that Shockwave could animate the same Guardian sans a head. I did think it was the same Guardian.

    If those old robot corpses Prime and company found lying around in the hanger were never removed, why would the guardian robot be? It's the same one.
