    Would a transformer be able to survive a short period of time close to the sun?

    Yes. But the plastic would start to yellow.

    Universe Sunstreaker turns slightly Henkei orange in the sun.

    At least mine does.

    A tf surviving a temperature of 6000 degrees centigrade (on the surface, it's even hotter inside the sun)? Not bloody likely, me thinks.

    Pretty much.

    As I recall, in Galaxy Force/Cybertron, wasn't there a Decepticon base in or right next to a sun?

    Unless they're made of really, really theoretical alloys, they're little blobs of molten metal.

    They would be able to survive precisely as long as the plot demanded.

    :lol  Perfect answer!

    I suppose a TF that could phase just slightly out of sync with this dimension wouldn't be affected IF he triggered it long before getting close to the sun and it lasted for the entire time he was in the proximity...but otherwise it would just be a matter of how many thousandths of a millisecond it took for them to completely vaporize. Remember their metal melts at much LOWER temps than the sun produces - else there'd be no way they themselves could smelt and form bodies, etc., with it.

    I've never heard of anything that could survive that kind of heat.

    Wow.


    It would be difficult to find something less serious to invoke "Seriously" about.

    Best. Answer. EVER!! :D 

    Exactly.

    The answer is NO. If they could survive THE SUN, why would they worry about little things like laser guns and missiles?

    I suppose it's possible for there to be special cases, or TFs with special abilities that allow them to shield themselves from the extreme heat. In IDW, Sixshot's armour is referred to as being constructed from hyper-dense matter extracted from the core of a collapsed star... which makes it pretty DAMN TOUGH.

    But I thought that was a bit exaggerated to be honest, even if it sure sounded cool. :)
