    Question, is Starscream the only flier in DotM?

    Aside from him, I don't think there were any other explicit flying vehicle alt modes were there? Prime had his jet wing attachment and Laserbeak's "bot" mode is flight capable, but were there any other self propelled fliers?

    Just thought it a little conspicuous by it's absence is all.

    They weren't in DOTM.

    Do the Decepticon fighter ships count as "fliers"?

    Megatron flew in his jet mode in the first movie. In the second movie his tank mode also had flight.

    ROTF Protoforms and Ravage can fly but more like missiles.

    Depends if any are actually TFs. We know they one ship design is an actual ship, however they're other designs and 'classes' they could be robots in disguise.

    Does no one read the title? It says "Who are the fliers in DotM?", not the whole series.

    he also turned into a jet, wasn't simply flying as a tank.

    Uhh, yeah he was. In the second movie he only transformed some small wings but it was still clearly a tank.


    Also, did nobody bother to read the damn first post or something?

    I guess Megatron would count in all three movies. He was a jet in TF1, a flying tank in ROTF and he did somehow get from Africa to DC in DOTM.

    Only three were shown to fly this time;

    Jet-Prime
    Starscream
    Laserbeak

    No other Decepticons were seen flying (Other than Decepticon ships if that counts) :banghead:

    To be fair, in the DotM video game, Breakaway, Air Raid, Silverbolt, and Stratosphere were all fliers in the storyline

    And I guess Laserbeak was a flier in the movie

    To me, the strangest, absoulutely most glaring plot hole is this:

    How the fuck do the robots get around? Megatron can't fly, atleast it was never stated, and I don't think Starscream can carry him. Oh yeah, and how did Soundwave get all the way to DC so damn fast?
