    That's one of my favorite lines from Shockwave. It just gave this connection between the games and us. Sort of like subtly breaking the fourth wall.

    Well they were looking at earth when there were tons of active volcano's and when oil and such were untouched so it was very accuarate but if they came to us know they would not get the kind of energy they scanned for

    I'm more interested in him finding Earth not being made of metal odd.

    Most sentient races would probably be rather self-centered, we'd certainly find a solid metal planet strange.

    By 'we' you must mean people who aren't fans of the Transformers, correct?

    Lots of potential slaves, lots of oil, lots of molten magma, lots of rivers, yeah there is energy there.

    He didn't know it, but freakin Unicron was also there. I'd say he is a source of raw energy..

    The thing is, a star, any star, has WAY MORE energy than Earth does.

    They may be robots but I doubt even they can live on a star (high temps and winds and all).
    And I thought personally that the reference was a given, especially with him discussing things such as the earth creature Grimlock was "fused" with.

    Yea but I doubt they would fly to a star and try to get energy from it as they would burn to death.

    Who says they have to go to it? Just set up some solar panels and let the energy come to them.

    Exactly. You don't have to land on a star to gather energy from it.

    Yeah. There's no need to actually mine energy. One can simply gather it.

    A good example would be what The Fallen did.
