    k. i have a few questions about the movie franchise.

    1) SCALE: starscream is a jet. optimus if a truck. doesn't use the trailer for robot mode. HOW THE HELL ARE THEY THE SAME SIZE!?!?!?!?!?!

    2):were did optimus' trailer come from? it popped up in DOTM and i was like wtf?

    3) what is the explanation behind bumblebee's design changing every movie? does sam get all bitchy and say " hey im bored lets get you a new car mode"?
    4) why is sentinel the ONLY one with a rust cannon? that would've changed a lot. megatron should have had his fusion cannon do that. that would have been awesome.

    feel free to answer any of these. or ask your own. :)

    1. Proportion/Slight Mass-shifting
    2. Wheeljack made it.
    3. GM
    4. Sentinel was a scientist, he probably made it himself.
    Hope that helped!

    Jets, while big and large, are almost razor-thin [you can even see that in the DOTM game].

    Built in betweens ROTF and DOTM.

    Probably personal choice, BB is young and naive, he probably likes to change to see how it fits.

    The rust cannon is most likely Sentinel's custom weapon that was built specially for him [given the fact that he was a Prime, one of the Gods of Cybertron, that doesn't seem far-fetched], lots of characters have that of thing [Megatron's fusion cannon, Optimus' Ion Blaster, Ironhide's cannons].

    Hell, the Dreads [random 'Con thugs] had their custom weapons [those Spikey bombs].

    Both characters do some subtle mass-shifting in order to keep Starscream from towering over Optimus. A lot of his mass also goes into his wide body, instead of into his height.

    Designed and built in the years between ROTF and DOTM.

    Real world reason: product placement. IIRC, it's the newest model each movie. In universe: A combination of injury repair and Bumblebee tweaking his look to his preference.

    Probably because it's a one-of-a-kind weapon designed by him? The concept art originally showed it being formed from his shield.

    You'll learn very quickly on these boards that no matter how extreme or ridiculous it is, there's apparently an "answer" for everything... even when there isn't :)

    I keep pondering about the sizes of Transformers. Because I saw in the forest scene that Optimus and Megatron are almost the same height.
