Spoiler "Silas is given a new lease on life and approaches Megatron with a plan to join the Decepticon ranks." The Human Factor - Transformers Wiki This bot looks like a cross between Optimus Prime and Breakdown. M.E.C.H. built a copy of Optimus Prime called Nemesis Prime. M.E.C.H. is currently in possession of Breakdown's corpse and turned him into a life support system for Silas. And now we have this episode description that says Silas is joining the Decepticons. This picture has been around the web for a while as some nameless character who would be appearing in a future episode of Prime. It all fits together perfectly. There is plenty of evidence here to support the idea that this bot is actually Silas. I'm really looking forward to "The Human Factor" even if I turn out to be totally wrong just because the episodes featuring Silas are the best episodes of this entire series. But anyway, if anyone has any other thoughts for what might be going on in "The Human Factor" please feel free to post them however keep it civil. Do not post your opinions as facts as if you've seen the episode already when it hasn't even aired yet. After the episode airs then you may post "YOUR WRONG" if that is the case but not before then.
