    No matter how many times I see it, there's still one scene that makes absolutely no sense.

    When Sam & the gang go to the museum to find a Decepticon, they all freak out when the vehicle that both Wheelie and the shard ID as a 'con turns out to be a ZOMG DECEPTICON.

    Just doesn't click with me.

    They identify him as a Decepticon?

    They didn't go to find a Decepticon, they went to find a Seeker, and found one that was a Decepticon. Basically, they didn't go in there knowing that the bot would be a Decepticon.

    I guess it could be that I'm just too aware of the fiction, immediately equating "Seeker" with "Decepticon"

    A Seeker can be either an Autobot or a Decepticon. They just happened to stumble across a Decepticon.

    Seekers aren't necessarily Decepticons.

    Just the one? You lucky bastage.


    Yet, this particular problem, as others have pointed out, does not appear in the film I'm afraid. While in any other fiction of prior 'Seeker' has been exclusive to the Decepticons (usually the bunch Screamers is running/heading), in the movieverse it can be Bot or Con. You have to remember, those that made the film aren't as schooled on TFs as us forum-posting fanatics, and they'll toss a term into play at random, nameslapping all the way to the big screen. ;)

    I'm not entirely sure Seekers are anything but Decepticons in the movie continuity either, seeing as they were sent by The Fallen to find the key to destroy the Earth's sun. But I suppose I can let it slide that not everyone in-continuity knows that.

    That's where you're mistaken. The Defiance prequel says that the Seekers were tasked by the Thirteen with finding stars to feed the All Spark. Not solely the Fallen. Therefore, they needn't necessarily all be 'Cons.

    To be fair, they have had some bad experiences with Decepticons.

    Oh man I only wish there was just one thing that bothered me. One thing you can sort of over look but when it's a lot of things it really adds up.

    Or all the Autobots not checking for certain robotic birds in the area after entering the base. You'd think they'd do that after some time :rolleyes2

    I agree with you. The movie versions of "Seekers" obviously got changed to be a literal meaning (ie: they were sent to seek), but from the way Jetfire talked about them, they were all indeed Decepticons. Jetfire was a Con before changing sides, and as he pointed out, his father or grand-father or whatever was the first one sent to Earth (he was a wheel), which ipso facto insinuates that he was also a Con.

    If any of the tie-in prequels/space fillers were relevant to or accurately followed what happened on film, then there's a point of debate. But as far as 99.9% of the non-comic or forum reading general movie going audience is concerned, none of that backstory exists... nor is it even offical canon according to Bay & co.

    I believe it makes sense in the Bay-movieverse to have both Decepticon and Autobot Seekers. Both sides would seem to need to try and find the object in question before the other did, so, you would need troops on the ground to that.

    My two cents.

    I took it as simply that they were more intent on finding out what the cybertronian symbols said and completely forgot. Then it was like, uh oh...oh yeah, Decepticons are evil...this could be bad.

    Although i liked that scene, here's my version:
    After sam points the shard, he mikaela and leo run under it. Leo and mikaela see the decepticon symbol.
    Leo::cry 
    Mikaela: We are fucked
