    Anyone think it's weird how the Insecticon falls apart in seconds after getting attacked by scraplets while the Autobots were getting chewed on for like 10 minutes by the scraplets and survive?

    Okay edit: People have theories but mine is. Okay if this was a scene.

    Arcee: ''Because we are main characters duh! We are meant to survive''

    The scraplets are either really really hungry or the Insecticon is falling apart already.

    I'd assume it's because the scraplets hadn't gotten any "living" metal for a while. They had been gnawing on live energon and living metal all day when they were in the Autobot base, but on Cybertron... that was probably the first living thing they'd seen in a while, and it's not like Vector Sigma was like a direct flow of energon, so they would be a lot more ravenous.

    I think the Insection was a bit rusted after all these years of hibernating if that's the correct word. After all it was many eons ago so it may have caused some rust on him. If he wasn't it'll be a different story.

    I'd say it's somewhat of a combination of these two ideas - the Insecticon being rather ancient, as well as the Scraplets being very, VERY hungry.

    The plot didn't call for it! Neither did the seriousness of this episode vs the comic relief of the original Scraplet ep! But seriously...no other reason than that methinks...unless...i dont know.

    It is. The Scraplets could've eaten Cybertron itself in 10 seconds and it would still better than G1. Like, in every single aspect of a production imaginable.

    You mean the series where nobody ever died at all even when logic dictates that someone ought to at some point? Hey at least Prime acknowledges it's willing to kill characters.

    Everybody in G1 died when they decided that they needed new toys. Spent 2 seasons getting shot in the face and surviving, suddenly died from blasts to the SHOULDER.

    It did seem ridiculous that it's arms just fell off.

    But the plot needed it to be out of there pronto. No time for a more believable defeat.
