    Are the Autobots trying to find the Decepticons' base so they can rescue Issac Sumdac? Does Sari care about where her father is?

    I mean even in RID Autobots were trying to look for Dr. Onishi.

    I'd imagine that's what the rest of the team are doing when they're off camera. It'd be nice to have a line of dialogue saying so (for example, the newest episode barely had Prowl in it. It would have been good if, at some point, he'd been talking to Optimus, along the lines of "I searched along the outskirts of the city for hours, but found no sign of them.")

    I personally think that the search would be pretty dull compared to what we are getting.

    At least like you said some dialogue of trying to search for him will do

    Better still:

    SARI
    You haven't stopped searching for my dad because he brought Megatron back to life, have you?

    OPTIMUS PRIME AND PROWL EXCHANGE GLANCES

    PROWL
    No. I mean, Prime, you were, what, looking for Sumdac this morning right? While you were in South Detroit?

    OPTIMUS
    Yeah, West Detroit is completely and utterly not with your Dad in it and such.

    PROWL
    South Detroit.

    OPTIMUS
    Yeah, South Detroit. Really. No Sumdac. I was, whew, like, doing South Detroit for days.

    PROWL
    This morning.

    OPTIMUS
    Fo sho! This morning. Totally looking for that idiot that resurrected Megatron.

    SARI
    You mean my Dad?

    OPTIMUS
    Totally looking for the idiot that resurrected your Dad.

    ENTER RATCHET COVERED IN REPUGNANT CRAP

    RATCHET
    ...Found him and ripped his elbows off and fed them to him. That'll teach Sumdac to... Whoah...

    EXIT RATCHET

    Maybe it's just me, but episode after episode of a girl crying, "Where's my Daddy? I can't find my Daddy!" is probably not the most upbeat children's fare.

    Still, I'm sure when the next Sumdac-centric episode comes up, we'll get some nice exposition as to how that particular subplot has been unfolding.

    The Autobots have no idea the Decepticons have Sumdac. For all they know, he died.

    uh, yeah...sorry to bump this but the Sumdac issue was bugging me too. We can forgive him for resurrecting Megs, right? That is, after all, what one of us would do even if we knew damn well that was MEGATRON we were trying to repair, right? Riigghhhht?

    That and he's the stereotypical tf maniac, our incarnation, crazy, doesn't technically sleep except on a keyboard. Builds Soundwave, Dinobots...I'd do if I had the technology :D 

    At least we know Sari is searching -V-''

    When Sari was head of Sumdac systems, according to Powel, she was using a large number of the company's resources to look for her dad.

    ... ..You may be lying.

    Either that, or they're hoping to just bump into himon some random trip. I sorta doubt that xVx

    No really, it's in the second scene from "Elite Guard".
    The one where Bumblebee is filling in as her secretary.

    I know, I know! Youtube educates me in the outside world. I was just foolin with your sig, it throws me of by mimicking the quote feature >:/

    Long story shortened, time omitted any concern for Sumdac, as the eps only fly for twenty mins

    It's in there so you can't say they aren't trying. It'll be brought up again when it's call for.
