    Why did the primes build a pyramid around the sun harvester when they could have just destroyed it? Did i miss something?

    Because future generations might still need the thing?

    Good question, but sadly the movie universe and logic do not see eye to eye.

    i thought prehistoric humans built the pyramids around the machine to conceal. the same way ancient egyptians entombed their dead in such lengthy processes maybe they also did it to objects they feared or thought were cursed. so building a pyramid around the harvester was something they did out of nature. seeing as the primes sacrificed there bodies to create a tomb for the matrix id doubt they took the time to build pyramids

    I agree on this. I also don't remember the movie/comics saying the Primes built the Pyramids. Not sure about the Novel though.

    My impression was that humans built the pyramid to hide the harvester, which they knew to be a relic belonging to the Cybertronians who had been there previously. I think the prequel comics elaborate on this, but I don't remember the specifics.

    The Primes did not build the pyramids, the humans did. And also to cover or hide the harvester from Primes.

    Why would the humans build a pyramid around the sun harvester? Surely a thing of such magnificence should be revered and left in it's original glory?

    They were scared of it, and fearful of The Fallen's return: they all saw the battle with the other Primes. So no, they didn't revere it, they wanted to bury it.

    Humans built Pyramid around it, probably afraid of the giant effing robots wanting it again and starting another war that kills more humans than robots in cross-fire anyway.

    I suppose from Bay's point of view it was to give him a reason to use Devastator. More bang than if he had just had a Decepticon be able to walk into the pyramid, access a secret panel, insert Matrix, and, await Energon.
