    What did Ironhide ment when he said 'but prime!!'?. When prime ordered the launch of the shuttle when he said 'now all we need is a little energon and alot of luck' he knew that the decepticons would attack?. If the dinobots where in the shuttle they would of died aswell?

    What are you talking about? In the 1986 movie, when Ironhide retorts with "But, Prime!". He is saying that he wants to attack "Some Deceptichops", not go to Earth.

    It's not the launch of the shuttle that Ironhide is contesting - it's the fact that Prime wants HIM to go. Ironhide has JUST got through bellyaching about how much he wants a fight, and Prime has instead decided that he's going to go to Earth instead. That's his problem.

    Ironhide is expecting Prime to give the order to ATTACK the Decepticons, but prime gives the order to go get more energon, that is why Ironhide questions prime, he wants to go punching and kicking butt NOW, but prime knows they are not ready, the plan is go get the energy and then come back to start the last and all out attack!... "a little energon...and a lot of luck"

    Just think of it like when a little kids says 'But, mum.' when she asks him to do something different to what he wants to do.

    Optimus: "Ironhide, go clean your bedroom."
    Ironhide: "But, Prime."
    Optimus: "No buts. And make sure you pick up your dirty underpants too."

    Ironhide wanted to go have a bit of a fight but Optimus essentually sent him out to the shops instead.

    Optimus: "Listen, Ironhide, we don't have enough cereal to power a full scale breakfast. Ready the shopping cart for launch."

    ..

    Optimus: "Now all we need is a little milk and a lot of Lucky Charms..."

    Bingo. As for Prime's line "all we need is a little energon and alot of luck", he's referring to their planned campaign to liberate cybertron by launching attacks from both of Cybertron's moon. Once they have the Energon they need, they're going to need a lot of luck for their plan to work.

    It always felt to me like the plan was likely a bit iffy if it needed a lot of luck to succeed. Maybe it would've needed less luck if Optimus had wanted a 'lot of energon' instead of just 'a little'. With a lot of energon retaking Cybertron would've probably been a doddle.
    But then Prime's line would've been far less cool.

    Interesting. Has anyone written a "pick a path" type fanfic for Transformers: The Movie?
    It would be really cool since so many things hinge on the events of that film.

    What if Prime ordered to launch two shuttles and him and the dinobots in one, the Cons would attacked Prime's shuttle aswell?

    If the dinobots were in the shuttle, Ironhide never would've died, and really big chance Prime wouldn't have died and Rodimus never would have existed, thats the way it should have been

    Indeed. One of the first forks in the road would've probably been if Laserbeak had been around or not to discover the shuttle being sent to Earth. Without that report the shuttle would've made the Energon run likely without incident and the Autobots go ahead with their plans to retake Cybertron.

    And then Unicron would later show up and eat everyone. Unless Optimus is able to use the Matrix to defeat him.

    I suppose if the retaking battle of Cybertron had happened then the big Optimus and Megatron fight would've happened on Cybertron rather than at Autobot City on Earth. And Hotrod wouldn't have been around to interfere. :p 

    So yeah, no Laserbeak report could've thrown everything off right from the start.
