    No, everyone could see Skids gun. Skids could even see Skids gun, but the memory erasey bullet made Skids forget the gun after he was done looking at it.

    Might have been a bit cooler if some of the info was given a bit earlier, so that we could have had some time to guess around. Now it all makes sense, but the story is nearly over.

    Ah...that's right. I really need to reread before 21, I'm losing my mind here with anticipation!

    No, it didn't. He never noticed it because the blank he fired on himself erased all memory of it, and he is unable to form any new memories of it because the effects of the blank erase them straight away. So he'd be told about it, look at it, and then immediately forget about it.

    If there was an AD installed then nobody would have noticed it, and as soon as anyone had, the effects would have ceased working for them immediately.

    Just a quick question did Prowl send Getaway and Skids to Luna 1 to deal with Tyrest (implying that Prowl has known where it is for at least two years now) or did Tyrest relocate there after the incident with the brain bullet?

    Prowl doesn't necessarily know where it is. Like Getaway said, he and Skids had to do an awful lot of leg work under their Diplomatic Corps guise to track him down.

    The incident with the Brain Bullet was happening just as the Lost Light was leaving Cybertron, hence the fact that Skids arrived through the portal, activated by his Homing Device which took him to Shock and Ore, when they were landed on the planet in number 2 picking up their lost from the accident.

    I still say the easiest ret-con out of that is that Minimus Ambus's alt-mode is some sort of internal organ. In biologic terms what if he transformed into a "heart-lung-ribcage" so if you weren't actively LOOKING for it, you wouldn't think it was a separate biological entity.

    Robots in disguise, indeed!

    I like that,,, a lot.

    So instead of truly being invisible, he has the "predator" effect?

    Predator camo is cool, but that's not quite it either. According to his original description, Mirage can't actually hide himself from view, either by invisibility or by camouflage. What his Electro-Disrupter does is "throw" his image somewhere else... making him very much live up to his name. Whoever is affected by the Disrupter actually sees an illusory image of Mirage, but probably several meters away from where he really is. So every time you would try to hit him, you'd miss... but he would still be visible.

    Of course, his Disruptor can also change his appearance, which I guess would be a "disguise" function... but I suppose that might also be used to change his colours or shape, to camouflage himself similar to the Predator... so maybe that could still work.

    Wait a minute I just realized that it's very well possible that Chromedome is no longer able to interface with people anymore, now that he lost one of his arms to Overlord and removed his syringes and gave them Getaway (unless of course Ratchet gave him new ones when he rebuilt his arm)

    He used the disguise function in Spotlight Mirage where he infiltrated the Autobot base. Organic eyes can still detect Mirage even when he used the disrupters to activate his ability
