    In the episode Return Of Optimus Prime, when he was revived and re-newed with the autobots, how does he know who Galvatron is since Prime was dead for so long.

    What D-Unit said. I think Prime kept up with things from being inside the Matrix. Remember, Galvatron and Scourge had it at one point. And Alpha Trion seemed very sentient while being inside the Matrix and talking to Prime.

    exactly if Optimus was dead his spark joins the matrix. The matrix constantly records history so Optimus would know current events.

    There're a couple of possible explanations. After Optimus Prime was revived by the Quintesson, Sky Lynx gave him a synopsis of Season 3's events at his request. It could also have happened then.

    Then if Prime knew what was going on why did he say " Tell me all that it happened"

    There's a diffrence between knowing the facts and knowing what happened. Hearing about something on the news is not the same as talking to someone who was there. You get to ask questions for one thing. You clear up the small details and, especially in this type of "war" scenario, get a much better feel of what happened. Defanitly things you'd need to know before trying to form a defensive strategy or rally a counter-attack.

    We all seem to be forgetting the events of "Dark Awakening".

    Yes, he was pretty much a zombie, but he may have retained the knowledge he was exposed to durring those events.

    And he was alive a few days there.From the time the Quints revived him, giving him enough time to build an escape shuttle, is found by the Autobots and the rest of the events.

    He even got the Matrix back for a while.

    He could have been given the info about Galvatron by the Quints, or learned it while with the other Autobots before leading them into a trap.

    Well, he was revived in 2006. As we all know, Rhino had already released the entire series on DVD with Season 3 coming out in 2004. Prime probably just watched the DVDs of Season 3 (plus the end of the movie) to bring him up to speed.

    Duh.

    He was probably interrupted as he got to the end of Season 3, which is why he had no idea what would happen in Rebirth.

    The Autobots probably have their own blog site.

    One thing I heard that may be from some piece of Japanese manga is that Galvatron may have a whole new body, but he still has the same face he had as Megatron. So Optimus can just recognise him. That and some off-screen exposition from the other Autobots.

    So basically he just has a fancy new hat, suit of clothes and goatee, but same old face.
