    saved megatron. just think, if they had repaired his head optimus' axe most likely would have glanced off. Rather than say digging into his head so prime could rip his spine out. I wonder if scalpel should have studied medicine more than torture on cybertron?

    His axe was directly logded in between Megatron's eyes. It would be like that even if his head was repaired.

    Half his face was disintegrated though. It wasn't like an arm, a shin, or his armor, it was his face. It couldn't be reattached or anything because it was gone.

    It seems like Cybertronians are like model kits in that they can reattach limbs. In RoTF, Starscream had his arm back on after Optimus Prime sliced the shoulder. In Transformers Prime, Starscream, again armless, is told he can get a new model. However, Megatron lost his face. It wasn't just cut off like Starscream's arm, it was blown apart. I'm pretty sure the 'Cons wouldn't keep a collection of faces in case they lose theirs.

    The Scalpels didn't have anything to do with Megatron getting his head and spine ripped out. Even if Megatron had his face recovered, the axe would've still been in his face.

    I kinda feel sorry for the little guys. Working that hard and they get nothing but misery in return. First, more than half of them get squished by Megatron (way to repay the guys helping you, you d*ckhead), after that when you FINALLY see a little bit of progression, Sentinel plants his goddamn hand in Megs his face and rips half of it back off! And if THAT ain't enough, Optimus comes by and just decides to slam his axe into Megatron's head and proceeds to rip it off. I would've loved to see a Scalpel run away angry and say "I CANNOT WORK LIKE THIS!"

    Megs was really a d*ck...
    In ROTF, he gets repaired under water and just storms to the surface, without so much as a "thanks" to Scalpel or any of the Constructicons there...

    On a side note, I better start looking for an axe that fits HFTD OP, that piece of plastic from DOTM Fireburst Optimus Prime simply will never do...

    I thought they were meant to be just bugs or something too. Don't remember seeing them doing any repairing.

    if they were repair bots he would have just told them to stop, instead of curiously looking at one before squishing it.

    to emphasize his grotesque stature do you think film writers would add repair bots or maggots? which do you think helps convey the emotion of dejected fallen leader?

    use your brain.

    I am. They are repair bots. If they weren't, they wouldn't be using Scapel's model would they.

    When you see Megatron back at the camp in Africa some small sparks fly as one of those little 'scaple clone' things is pokes around in the open wound looking like its trying to fix something before he picks it off and crushes it. Kinda looked to me like what ever it did annoyed him thusly he killed it.

    The Scalplets were trying to effect repairs, you can clearly see one try and do some welding before Megs squishes him.

    Whatever happened to Scalpel? When Megatron reformatted his body to Transform into a truck couldn't he reformat his face too? Looked cool though.
