    I know ROTF is over like 8 years ago already, but recently I've rewatched it, and when I paused a certain scene in the movie, this came out.

    Remember the scene when Bumblebee, Skids and Mudflap enters the final battle grounds with Starcsream attacking them?

    Seen here, is after when Starscream lands on the ground, and fires a missile. As the missile is fired, Bumblebee's prop car's driver-side door can be seen flailing around lol

    Maybe he was going to eject the humans as decoys to save himself, but once he realised Starscream's aim was about as good as Bee's singing he decided to spare them.

    Here's a better plot hole:

    How the fuck is anyone gonna survive the sun blowing up? Would that not result in a super nova or something of a similar nature? Is there like a protective chamber within the solar harvester where bots can stow away during the explosion, or wtf.

    Lol.

    In all seriousness, what I took from it was that the sun was going to literally be harvested, and seeing that it's literally a ball of energy, it would be completely sucked away.

    Not that what he said meant anything, just that they technically said it, even if it was a misunderstanding on Leo's part.

    I don't think Starscream was able to get up that fast to continue firing. His landing was not that good so to say

    We'd all still die though after like half an hour or something. I don't know how fast the Earth would cool was residual radiation and heat stopped, plus the built up heat the surface held onto, but we'd all get very cold.

    Humans definitely would, but the post I was responding to was about the Cybertronians getting killed by the exploding sun.

    I'd say it would be a lot longer than a couple hours. Maybe a few days.

    Pure speculation, but I don't thnk his landing was that good. He was on the ground when he fired the missile iirc
