    What do you think happened to them? If the Autobots found them would they show mercy due to being little babythings? Can you imagine tough guys like Sideswipe or the Wreckers rocking them to sleep, appealing to their softer nature? Or would Optmus tear off their faces so as to prevent them from growing up to be deadly Decepticons.

    They would probably "retrain" them to be autobots, or something like that

    Well, there are two possibilities.

    1. Optimus and the Autobots never find Megatron's base in Africa and the hatchlings die of lack of energon.

    2. The movie transformers are some of the least robot-like, as in they don't seem to be needing programming like robots would. They seem more sentient. So if Optimus and the Autobots find them, and the hatchlings like them, they could choose to be Autobots. Jetfire said it was a choice.

    Transformers in the movie universe - Autobot or Decepticon - seem to have very little compassion or understanding for each other.

    If they're Decepticon, they'll be killed.

    I assumed that they would starve because no one knew they were there. But if Optimus saved them in the comic, that's cool too. The movie bots appear to be going extinct, so they need to keep as many of their kind alive as possible.

    The DOTM game, if you're playing as an Autobot, has Optimus encouraging you to wipe out all the Decepticons, hatchlings included.

    Make of that what you will.

    The Hatchlings seem to be like babies, they just crawl around, making funny noises and looking for food, so I guess they are unable to choose to be Autobot or Decepticon until theyre older.

    So, since they can learn, in any case the Autobots found them, they could be educated to become Autobots. Thats a personal choice. And with no Decepticons around to be their role models, they will hardly become servants of evil xD

    So, most likely, if the Autobots can give them Energon to survive, I think the most logical answer would be to let them live and become Autobots.

    More importantly, I wish we knew where the hell do Hatchlings come from??? What causes them to exist? Were they also born when the Allspark was around? So many questions about them.

    I guess Optimus borrowed their faces until they grow up.
