    After reading ROTF defiance #1 I am a litle confused of the instensions everyone thought megatron had for the allspark.

    In the film Optimus said that Meg wanted the allspark to turn all of earths machines in to robot drones. But does that even make sense? He was frozen, he had an army on cybertron. Why would he want to rule earth. Even once he got the allspark, he doesnt need more drones to rule cybertron, he already practially could.

    *spoilers*
    In defiance, he was a military leader, full access to the all spark, yet he lived in harmoney with all other autobots. Then something happened, he went evil, rallied the Decepticons and went after the allspark for some unknown purpose.

    Perhaps the reason he wanted the cube wasnt for mass an army, but to revive the being which set in motion his coruption, and who's face mirros that of the decepticon logo. Perhaps he just wanted the cube to revive the Fallen.

    Am I way off base? Just seemed a little simple for everyone to think he wanted to turn pop machines in to war drone.

    It's actually the most sence I've heard in a while it explains the pyramids, Megatron on earth and even the Fallen.

    Yeah, I'd say that sounds right.
    Prime's explanation is more unicron singularity, or
    maybe that's just what Prime thought. Defiance is
    a very fun read thus far.

    I think this is a most excellent theory.

    I thought Defiance was an alternate reality?

    Well we got three more issues of Defiance to go before we understand all of Megatron's intentions. Heck, why would Optimus want to know; he has to defend civilians from his rampaging power-hungry "brother" first, then file his commission on what happened. They just knew enough about Megs' personality that when he gets the AllSpark, he'd use his new godlike powers to raise more soldiers; he's an opportunist, like all strategizers.

    Optimus' explanation in the movie makes perfect sense. Yes, by that time, no Transformer was aware of Earth and its technology, but I'm pretty sure Megatron could use the cube to transform ANY tech into mindless (or evil) drones to unleash on the galaxy. Maybe on Cybertron. Maybe some other planet we don't know about.

    You got it:thumb 

    My question is that if the cube oly makes mindless drones, them why are they all seeking it? Is there some special way it's supposed to be used, or maybe the mindless robot is given a "sole" in some other way?

    Why does this seem just like a very very shortened version of my last theory?

    Haha, soul typo!

    We don't know yet if the cube only makes mindless drones, but it's safe to assume it does more than that(because otherwise there wouldn't be sentient Transformers). Maybe it creates drones if you don't know how to use it, or maybe you need another part for it to function right. Still, Megatron could easily just create these mindless monsters and have them go crazy on his enemies..as long as he doesn't get in the midst of battle.

    The Autobots are looking for the Allspark because 'Cybertron will shut down' without it. That means the Allspark somehow feeds life into the planet directly, or it's a way of saying that the amount of Cybertronians is running low and without population the whole planet will get into a state of disrepair, resulting in the said shutdown and eventually extinction of all Cybertronians.
