This is something I just needed to get off of my chest, because I see it brought up alot. I can't tell you how many posts I've read complaining about Sam going to some kind of magical "Robot Heaven". After just concluding my Chinese G1 boxset (and seeing alot of S3 episodes that I apparently missed a kid...) it's perfectly obvious, to me, at least, that Sam simply went "into the Matrix" like we saw in G1, and much like when Optimus went into Vector Sigma. It just seems that alot more folks in the fandom would've picked up on this and I thought I'd chime in. Now, to be fair...I didn't see the need to disintegrate the Matrix and have it "transform" back...but that's another story. Maybe that was just backing up the Fallen's little speech to Megatron. Eh.
