    In ROTF Leo was able to hold on to Simmons and keep him from getting sucked into Devastator’s vortex, but Skids was not able to hold on to Mudflap. Is Leo as strong as the average Cybertronian, or is there an additional factor or something (the Twins fiddling around too much, scrambling for a better grab)?

    I think it was a matter of distance.

    Might be from all that exercise he got from running from Alice, Megatron, Devastator, etc.

    Mudflap had a gun and so was able to blow up half of Devestator's head.

    Simmons did not have a gun and so could not blow up half of Devestator's head. He also needed to make the Devy-has-a-scrotum joke later on, so he couldn't die yet.

    Problem solved.

    Considering Devastator sucked up the big van they were hiding behind prior to them making a run for it, and taking into account that a van is much heavier than two humans, I would suggest that Devastator also has a magnetic attribute to his Vortex that makes it easier for him to suck up metal things, such as Cybertronians.

    Leo Spitz is actually a Cybertronian sleeper-agent, to be revealed in TF4.

    It's like life support for the movie forum, except all the nutrient mix is stale nuts and warm beer.

    Exactly why Mikaela dumped Sam for him. He's a strong mothahfuckah.

    Because the plot called for it.

    THERE IS NO OTHER REASON NOR UNDERLYING LOGIC, SECRET KNOWLEDGE OR IMPLIED MEANING.

    It's an absolutely pointless incidental detail about a bad movie. Hey guys, I just noticed that Spike, Sparkplug, Chip and Carly never change their clothes throughout the first seasons of the G1 cartoon series. Do you suppose that maybe they're actually manifestations of omnipotent space gods, who are merely observing Transformers like guinea pigs in a virtual world of their own making? Or is there something I'm missing?

    OMG, how bored are we on this forum? Wow.

    I'm honestly going to have to have a wholehearted "THIS" to SwindlesShop's comment.

    That actually makes quite a bit of sense! :thumb  I always attributed the van getting sucked up but not them to the van just sitting there, but the humans would most likely be providing opposing resistance. Granted, that makes them as strong as Superman, but it's Revenge of The Fallen.

    He was arbitrarily powered-up by interdimensional energy drawn from a plot hole.
