    OK before Sam was "interrogated" by the "Doctor" you see Starscream "spit" on Sam with disgust and you see Optimus Prime "spit" out something after he was shot. OK I thought robots don't have liquid to "spit" at anything?

    How is this possible?

    These robots do. They were given mannerisms that people could identify with. Like urine, blood, and spit.

    yeah, note when ravage's spine gets pulled out of his ass by Bumblebee.
    What optimus spits out of after getting blasted is his tooth. And technically, they're not robots. They're just not biological beings. Note that what they're spitting is probably oil or anything similar. Jetfire spits alot tho.

    Yeah robots have no fluids....no oils, no hydraulic fluids, no coolants of any type...just like cars have no gasoline, no oil, no transmission fluid, no brake fluid, no radiator fluid.....

    Of course they have fluids they are machines with moving parts, you have to cool and lubricate those parts......

    Watch the forest scene. When Optimus is kicking Megatron's butt, you see Megatron's "blood" flying around.

    Ah, another topic about robo-liquids. Lol.

    As has been pointed out, they are living machines. Living creatures generally have flowing liquids within them, and machines use quite a bit of liquids for various reasons. It would be surprising as hell for the Transformers to be implied to have none.


    WIN!

    this. even in the first episode of the transformers ironhide starts gushing liquid from his shoulder. also the spit could be built up grease and grime on the inside of starscreams mouth.

    and they dont need to pee, they can quit anytime they want.

    Yeah. In the forest scene, Prime punches egs hard, and red liquid shoots out of his mouth.

    The real answer: To get the maximum amount of robo-gore out of them.

    also happens when megatron gets thrashed at the end.

    makes complete sense. machines are lubricated, or they do not function. not to mention liquid cooling.

    yes, complex machines have liquid in them.

    Does that go for Sideways as well? When Sideswipe cut him in half?
