    Okay, so this post is extremely spoilery. If you don't want to know, don't read further.


    So at present I am reading the novel version of DOTM, and wow! Who the hell's idea was it to make Sentinel a traitor?! He was such a cool character. Prime's mentor, the playground scene, etc I really like his character and then bam, traitor...Who else felt this way?

    I like it. It's because
    I can't hear that old Nimoy Galvatron voice coming out of anyone but a villain in the TF Universe. Because of what happens with Sentinel, I can already tell DotM has a waaaaay better story than RotF.

    WHAT A TWEEEEEEEST!

    I love it. Enough of every Autobot trying to be Jesus, I say.

    THIS. Not because of Galvatron, but the voice alone doesn't sound like a good guy, IMHO.

    Sentinel left Prime for a few hours to experience humanity on his own, when Sam finds him he's on a playground, and Sentinel was talking about humans prejudices being forgotten on playgrounds, then said the world needs more playgrounds.

    I love the playground scene. It's one of my favorites from the book.

    Something along the lines of Sentinel taking a tour of Earth and seeing children playing and how he sees innocence or whatever in the human race. I don't know, its been awhile since I read it.

    EDIT: Ninja'd by Nexus Zero

    I lol'd, this needs to be in the movie! :lol

    I sure hope so! It would add to the whole, drama I guess? Of his betrayal.

    I honestly love this whole Sentinel deal. We need more Autobots doing horrible and morally gray things.

    I like the idea of Sentinel being the main bad guy. It really changes the pace of things from always having a Decepticon villain. Some of us, including me, were hoping for a storyline including Unicron, but I think this plot tops anything like that, because it hasn't been seen before.

    I'm eager to see
    Optimus Prime and Megatron teaming up with each other in order to take Sentinel Prime. That sounds epic if you ask me. At times we saw Megatron and OP team up for a couple seconds within a TV series, but not as major as this.

    Title of this thread is freakin hilarious! lol

    If Sentinal wasn't the big villain.....I would have been disapointed. Here is why:

    1. Optimus never would have been able to finish what he started in "Animated". That is beating the shit out of Asshole Prime!

    2. Shockwave doesn't have the potential to be the main villain.

    3. Megatron being the top-con again? BORING!!!

    This scene is the reason my father now wants to see DOTM. He didn't give a shit about it the movies before but now that his hometown of Allen town gets a whole scene in it he wants to watch.

    Technically, he's not a traitor. Noone is. Everyone is loyal to their ideals. If anyone has "betrayed" anyone else, it's Optimus betraying Sentinel because Optimus chose his own path that placed him at odds with Sentinel.

    IF THE PLAYGROUND SCENE IS CUT FROM THE FILM I WILL BOYCOTT THE MOVIE

    I actually really like Sentinel's character.
    All he wanted was to save Cybertron, and since Optimus valued humanity over the planet, Sentinel had no choice but turn against him. It's not like he just suddenly turned around and was all like "imma be evil now lulz", he still hated Megatron, but they shared goals and had to strike a deal.

    In fact Starscream, Megatron and Soundwave aren't motivated by evil causes. They want their planet to be back to it's former glory and whats wrong with them is the way they're trying to pull it off. Really its not good vs evil. its radical desperates vs moderate refugees.

    Yeah, this. TFA did that splendidly; for the Movie-verse to achieve the same would be a great coup.

    Things are seldom black or white. They are, for the most part, shades of gray. War is usually no exception.
