    1. Megatron's body and the All Spark Cube housed within the Hoover Dam during the Dam's construction.

    2. The ancestral Primes hiding The Star Harvester within The Pyramids Of Giza.

    3. Sentinel Prime's crash-landing leading to the first mission to the moon.

    I liked the moon conspiracy best because since only a few people have been to and sent cameras to the moon, it is possible that any documents on a crashed alien ship would be classified above top secret.

    Pyramids, Moon landing, Seekers been here for ages. All of it. All of them are interesting.
    Least interesting one in my opinion is Megatron and the Hoover Dam.

    I quite liked the whole Moon conspiricy, since anything could be hidden on the far side of our silvery neighbour. It was neat how it all tied into Soundwave's machinations, how he essentially prevented NASA from getting the funding for further missions to keep the Ark a secret, as well as Megatron's plan. Seeing the whole army burst from the lunar ground, ships powering up and savage Decepticons prepping for invasion, was very impressiove, and then off they go to Earth to wreak havoc. Awesome.

    It was only in the IDW comics, but Shockwave being the Tunguska event.

    I really loved how they incorporated all of these historical events into the movie, but I especially love how they incorporated the Moon Landing into it

    The historical event that intrigued me the most has to be the 12 original Primes killing themselves for the safety of the galaxy. Because surely the safest thing to do was to steal the key to the doom thing, walk a mile away from the doom thing, lay on top of the key, and die. Yes, the chances were slim to none that the fallen would look under the only pile of dead Autobots on the whole planet. It certainly would have been too risky to:

    *Only cover the key with 1 dead body.
    *Cover the key with still living bodies.
    *Cover the key with literally anything else at all.
    *Just try to take the asshole down using the 12 to 1 advantage they had.
    *Disassemble the sun collector.
    *Disassemble the sun collector while the Fallen was sleeping and put it back together in literally any other solar system, surprise him with it, go out for some beers and patch the whole mess up.

    But doing any of the above would not have put the 12 Primes in robot heaven. Then when Sam died they could not have shown him how to leave robot heaven to return to Earth. And it was vitally important that Sam return to Earth, because who other than Sam could bring Optimus from robot heaven back to earth? Optimus is just a Prime. How could he possibly know the way out of robot heaven without Sam's help?

    All the plotlines were generally weak with the 'historical event' altering being predictable from the start. The only interesting idea was the (Not mentioned) Chernobyl disaster which Shockwave caused.

    Shockwave didnt caused it, it was likely that the Ark thing caused it, after all Shockwave was offline when the Chrnobly accident occured

    Uh, the film shows their bodies became unrecognizable from the sand once they died, so it isn't as conspicuous at it seems, The Fallen would need to dig up some half of Egypt before he could catch a trace of them.

    They tried once. He wiped the floor with them.

    A tie between the first film and ROTF. Megatron being the forefather of dangerous tech makes for a great concept and twist (they could have had him be active and head to Earth with the rest of the Decepticons, but it turned out better this way). And the ROTF idea of Seekers hiding out on Earth from ancient times is also a great concept of tying Transformers to Earth (in keeping with similar themes in films like PROMETHEUS and THOR).

    The third one, not so much. It's too much of retcon (Soundwave appearing in the 1970s) and fallback (the plan to revive Sentinel would ONLY have worked if the Ark had made it to the Moon) and it has an oversight of Cons waiting on the Moon when they could wait easily on Earth.

    The moon landing being to find the Ark

    The Primes sealing the Matrix in a tomb made of their bodies

    And Sentinel being the Einstein of Cybertronions

    :)  Don't even try defending the logic of this one. You know what is also unrecognizable from sand and can also be used to cover the Matrix?

    More sand.

    The moon.

    The Conspiracies are the only good thing about the stories of these films.
