    SPOILERS from the Junior Novelization..

    I've posted spoilers for the last two movies in case anyone doesn't believe the following..

    Like the last two times, Books-A-Million jumped the gun and had the book out on shelves before the sell date. The only difference this time is they wouldn't let me purchase it.

    Unfortunately, I had my four year old with me who wasn't in the mood for me to take pictures of the novel, so here's what I remember spoiler wise:

    (Sorry it's out of order, but I tried to jot things down quick from memory.)

    - As the adaptation says, Mikaela and Sam broke up long ago, no reason given.
    - Sentinel Prime's expedition was in reality, defecting from the Autobots. He was to meet up with Megatron later
    - Ironhide is "gravely injured" when he's shot by Sentinel
    - TONS of bot dialog
    - When exploring Russia, Optimus finds an engine booster from an Autobot ship
    - When the Autobots find out about the Ark, they leave for the moon
    - Megatron says let the Autobots do the work for them and it's now time for Soundwave to pull in his human contact
    - Near the end, Bumblebee coughs up a gasket ring, and Sam says he's not ready to propose yet
    - Dialogue between Optimus and Sentinel: OP : "You taught me that freedom was the right of all sentient beings.". SP: "Survival is the right of the fittest(?)"

    Sorry I couldn't post more.. if I get lucky, I'll stop by tomorrow during lunch and scan some more details.

    That's cool I like that survival is the right of the fittest line. But it's unclear in your post who said it.

    Don't take that to mean there's a chance he lives, he's dead.

    I'd have to guess that they just didn't want to flat out say that he died. It's one of those Junior Novelizations, after all.

    One thing I don't get is Optimus supposedly brings back Sentinel Prime with the Matrix so why don't they just use the matrix on every dead autobot?

    The same reason they didn't fly Optimus Prime's corpse to the junkions to fix in Transformers the movie. (Magnus was waaaaaaaaaay more dead than Prime)

    Just like how we learned in the first movie that if an autobot's legs are removed below the waist (BB), he's fine- but above the waist (Jazz) he's toast.

    The less you think about these movies the better. Just have fun!

    Just speculation but I'm guessing it depends on the condition of the body.

    Jazz was in pieces. Jetfire was cannibalized for parts.

    Sentinel Prime looked intact just out of juice.
