    "Decepticons around the world . . . launch the pillars."

    Does anyone know the purpose of these pillars. It seems to me that, once they're launched into Earth's orbit and they open up, they don't seem to do anything else.
    The only pillars that seem to do anything when Cybertron is being transported are the four/five that were on top of the building in Chicago. Maybe I missed something, I don't know.

    So, does anyone know what is the purpose of these pillars?

    The Five on the building control everything. The ones in space did the transporting.

    There's three kinds of Pillars - Control, Amplifier, and Transport.

    Control - The one Sentinel controls from the roof. It [obviously] controls the whole system.
    Amplifier - The other pillars on the roof. They amplify the control for larger transports (they weren't needed for the invasion in DC).
    Transport - The ones launched into space. They open the Space Bridge and do the teleporting.

    And this.

    And thus...

    ...this.

    Those pillars aided in the transport. You can see that those ones in space do actually do something.
