Is he the gold bot? Post your thoughts here:
I remember a security guard calling the Autobot Firetruck "Sentinel Prime" and "Optimus Prime's Father". Must be him then.
However, it might be that he meant "forefather" or "ancestor" rather than Optimus Prime being SP's son.
This is, however, a film with Stephen Speilberg's influence and we all know how much he loves doing movies about bad/absent father's and their relationships with their children or themes similar to those.
I would love it, if SP is OP's dad, to have SP disappointed in OP for putting the humans above their race. Not the the extent that he would be a Decepticon, of course, but enough that he doesn't care about humans caught in the cross fire. The film could end with him sacrificing himself to save Optimus, ultimately realizing that his son was right to do what he did and that he is proud of him.
I'm going to go ahead and say, Yes.
We see in the first film that the cybertronian forms of the characters we know are all a monotonous color. So I'm pretty sure the gold on the character won't have an effect on his becoming the red + white firetruck.
That strayed off topic, didnt it? XD
Very true and I'd love to see that.
Wonder what SP's entrance quote is... Hope it's "Daddy's Back!"
It would be interesting to see that, as Optimus is always the unshakeable leader, the one that carriers mankind's lives weight on his shoulders and e.t.c
Sentinel Prime having a father-and-son relationship with Optimus would be good to break a little that image, and show his "soft side", for example: Optimus almost going nuts when realizes that his father is going to die, crying/showing a considerable amount of grief when Sentinel dies, something in that line.
You know, it would make him more human.
I like how when people in this sub forum see a potential spoiler in another thread, they create a thread here with a spoiler as the thread's title. This thus ruins it for anybody who is avoiding spoiler threads/avoiding this sub forum entirely, because the thread title is seen on the forum's main page
Here are my thoughts about it:
The Sentinel Prime possibility. Spoilers.
I don't think the gold bot is SP but who knows this is a Bay movie.
I hope its the fire truck that would be interesting to see
Ive thought the Ark bot was Sentinel for a while now and I still do. He is therefore probably also the red and black firetruck too.
Impretty sure that its him sicen he has the dynasty of priem symbols
i was kinda hoping that the fire truck was ultra magnus... ...oh well
looks Sentinel Prime to me
definitly sentinel prime, no mistake,
I say he is the gold bot and the firetruck we saw in Chicago. Referring back to Sam's mental outburst in his astronomy class, he mentions the "Sentinel Prime expedition" I believe that the ship on the moon is his and his mission was to find the AllSpark, but was attacked by the Nemesis and the Fallen. Both ships become damaged and Sentinel's ship crashes on the moon and the Nemesis drifts in space until colliding with a moon of Saturn.
They never heard from Sentinel again so the Cybertronians presumed him to be dead... which is why Optimus is believed to be the last Prime, but Sentinel is in stasis lock, to be awakened by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.
Also I think Sentinel is going to start bitching to prime like the animated series
I think its more like this:
Yeah! Because a guard would be the go to guy for plot info. I doubt they're given more info than a character or vehicle name. (Ex. Firetruck or Bumblebee)
It might have just been an "Oh look, they share a last name! FATHER & SON!!!" type guess by the guard.
I think hes the gold bot then comes down to Earth and scans the firetruck.
Separate names with a comma.
