    What do you think it us that makes Sentinel more powerful than Prime? Also do you think Optimus used some of the jetfire part to upgrade himself yet keep out some parts to keep himself more agile instead of bulky?

    Sentinel is older and wiser. I think Op kept the good parts and modifide the Jetfire Package to what suited/serves him best.

    Sentinel was prime's mentor so obviously he is stronger and more knowlegable

    But prime has been doing some massive core body workouts so I'm sure prime could beat sentinel in a "who has the better abs" contest. :lol

    I don't know, but I kinda like the fact that there's someone who's a better fighter than Megatron and Optimus :D

    Which I think becomes Optimus's property at the end! Also I think his Abs are due to Jetfire parts for a fortified torso to protect the Matrix.

    Optimus Prime has at least 12,000 years of combat experience.

    With Sentinel I'm thinking it might be the size advantage

    I think people see Optimus as kinda old, even if they don't mean too. I don't think he's young like Bee or Sideswipe. But he's nothing like Sentinel or Ironhide. He's relatively young as far as Optimus Primes go. It's got to be the voice that gives off his older feel haha. I feel like if we could compare it to humans, he'd be about in his 30s. Bee, Sideswipe, Mirage 20s. The twins I guess about late teens. Wheeljack is probably older than Ironhide. And Sentinel somewhere in the middle of Wheeljack and Ironhide.

    Have we've seen a side by comparison? I didn't know he was bigger than Optimus.

    Maybe Sentinel is stronger simply because he's, you know, STRONGER? Like, how Optimus is stronger than say, Starscream?

    You guys think way too hard about things.

    Ever get into a bar room brawl with some middled aged scrapper that is in good physical condition? They made it to middle age because of strength, speed, ability and in particualar experience.
    It's the young over confident punk that gets in too deep and gets thrashed.

    ....SP was standing on a collapsed building, of course he looked taller.

    They're the same size probably.

    a building you say...So he is!
    however just comparing head sizes Sentinel appears larger, more Megatron-sized.

    My guess is that Sentinel is a first-generation descendant of the original 13 primes. Optimus is probably second or third-generation, so his "prime blood" is more diluted than Sentinel's. Ergo, Sentinel is stronger.
