    Sentinel Prime basically had the same robot mode before he scanned the Rosenbauer Panther fire truck, so on Cybertron, he had to have an ALT mode, right?
    He wasn't a protoform, so again, he transforms into something.

    Check this out, a photo I found of a possible Cybertronian ALT mode.

    That's just fan art, so it's not official, but I like the look, it says "Sentinel" IMO.
    But he could be something else, maybe a jet or something?
    What do you think?

    Makes sense he doesn't have an ALT mode, or he transforms into some kind of truck, kinda like the drawing. All you can do is wonder.

    In one of the universe's strangest coincidences, his Cybertronian mode was a modern-era earth Firetruck. MESSED UP, HUH?

    It's a paradox.

    Untrue.

    Since he was travelling inside the Ark rather than in his "spacepod" mod, he never needed to strip back down to his protoform.

    What you saw in the Ark on the Moon and when he's first awakened at NEST HQ was his Cybertronian form.

    Note the complete absence of any human letters or numbers and the fact that where his rubber tires should be he instead has round metal discs.

    At some point after his awakening but prior to his rejection of The Matrix he obviously scanned in a Rosenbaur Pather 6x6 firetruck, most likely at NEST HQ since it's an airport firetruck alt. mode and NEST HQ has an airstrip right outside.

    Furthermore, if you look REALLY closely at the background when he's stealing the pillars and deflects the RPG fire with his shield, declaring "I am a Prime, I do not take orders from you!" you'll notice a giant 316 on the wall between him and the soldier who fired, which corresponds perfectly with the 316 on the side of his alt. mode, and which appears to be the designated number for the airstrip hangar at NEST HQ.

    Yes, it's a little confusing at first.

    But if you pay close attention and mull it over for a bit everything you need to figure it out is all right there.

    Hope that helps explain it all.

    :)

    His alternate mode before earth was a firetruck.
    They used the same character model.

    I must've missed where he had any firetruck kibble at all while in space. He was a darker red, had no lettering and no wheels on him before beign a firetruck.

    They did not. In fact he had more differences than just a slighty darker shade of red and no Earth parts. Some pieces were recoloured, such as some of his black stripes turned red or replaced with gold (the inside detail of his shoulder pads) and some red bits turned silver. (his collar)

    What does that fan art have to do with anything? Everyone knows Sentinel was a firetruck IN SPACE.

    What's so bad about Sentinel being a space firetruck? I'm sure fires needed putting out on Cybertron, too.

    I've also requested a screencap of the 316/RPG scene several times in the pertinent thread but no one appears to be fielding them anymore.

    I don't have a functioning disc drive so if someone could help me out there that'd be great, thanks.

    I watched the scene you're talking about and I see no writing behind the RPG firing marine. (I see a 319 as he's swinging around. Considering how many "31-" signs there are at nest I think it's a safe bet his vehicle mode was from one of those areas)

    EDIT: Nope, I see what you mean. Working on screenshot now...

    Thanks, it's not really behind him in the frame, it's almost directly BETWEEN Sentinel and the RPG guy and visible best as the flare from the explosion dies down, almost directly behind it, if I recall correctly.

    You know, written on the wall in big-ass numerals like the 317 behind the close-up of Optimus and Mearing face-to-face and the 318 and 319 and whatever other numbers visible in many of the other NEST HQ interior shots.

    Found it:

    You can clearly see it almost in the exact middle of the screen.

    YAY!!!

    Thanks SO much!!!

    :D 

    I've wanted to have a screencap SO badly 'cause it took a while for me to spot and was quite a EUREKA! moment for me once I finally did.

    Plus, this subject comes up ALL the time and no one ever believes me, lol.

    (Take heed, ignorant, kneejerk naysayers in all my threads!)
