    I prefer the esophagus idea. It changes the Megatron/Fallen relationship for the better, as well as it kinda explains why the Autobots didn't know about the Fallen while all the Decepticons knew.

    Definitely. Makes a lot more sense than "I can't get out of this chair until this dude on some other planet is dead"

    Yes, totally. If he had been stuck inside the sarcophagus, it would have been a more logical reason why he couldn't go back to Earth himself all that time.

    I agree that his being stuck in Megatron's esophagus would change their relationship, but I don't know if it would be for the better.

    He was never stuck in a sarcophagus in the script: Mowry, the prequel writer, misinterpreted a scene where the Fallen talks to Megatron via a video phone. Then the writers chose ROTF as the title and realised he needed to be in the film more.

    What they showed in the film really wasn't good enough.
    The Fallen was shown WAAY too early in the movie; it left no anticipation, and he was pretty much depicted as a lazy bum who did nothing but sit around all day, (yes I know he was on life support) but they didn't explain it very well.
    If they had gone through with the whole Sarcophagus route, (occasionally communicating through Megatron physically or something) then the audience would be in wonder throughout most of the movie about who the Fallen really is, and then once he's free near the end of the movie the payoff would have been better.
    But then again; that would make Revenge of the Fallen a better movie, and that simply isn't allowed; is it?

    Yes, or they could of at least shown him escape in the beggining instead of that god awful caveman part. And, if they didnt use it in the film, the video game could of used it.

    While I didn't read the comic books the sarcophagus idea just seems visually cooler than what we got. A way to play in the Egyptian aspect of the story even harder as well.

    I said that they should have showed how he got free, if he was supposedly trapped in a sacrophogus or something up until the events in the ROTF movie when newly-resurrected Megatron arrived on the Nemesis to meet with him.

    My interpretation of the comic was that the Fallen was stuck in the space-bridge dimension, and was communicating through the sarcophagus, manipulating Megatron until he felt safe enough to return.

    Personally, I think that's lame, feels tacked on, and is NEVER explained fully in anything I've seen.

    IMO, he should have been stuck in the pyramid with the weapon. With the matrix gone, he had no way to gather energon, so eventually he powered down, and the egyptians buried him with the sun harvester.

    You dont need the Fallen manipulating Megatron, just have it be that Megatron discovers the info on his own, through the Doctor scene even. That sends him on the quest to find the machine, AND the Fallen.

    Seems easy to me. *shrugs

    Some people aren't listening.

    IMO, the sarcophagus was bad fanfic. But the notion of The Fallen being elsewhere in the galaxy searching for the Matrix with other Decepticons and Megatron's permission would've invoked a far better sense of 'a whole universe out there' Ehren Kruger stated on the DVD than the final film.

    I think what they showed worked, he was on some kind of life support. Waiting until the last Prime was gone before it was safe enough to make himself known. The Primes can't kill him if they don't know he exists. The life support must have been what kept him strong unlike Jetfire who got all flimsy without it.
