    Jetfire mentions his mother and father. I was quite surprised by this.

    What is being alluded to or developed here?

    The AllSpark went about creating new Transformers in both movies. But the oldest had parents? Jetfire said he did. I guess Optimus did as well.

    What do you guys think?

    that's just a bunch of codswallop intended to have Jetfire ramble on in a humorous way.

    ...I dunno. Optimus and Megatron were/are brothers, Megatron killed their father, there are twins and triplets...

    Maybe their 'parents' refer to whoever gave them life via the AllSpark.

    It's kind of worth noting that Jetfire is nine sandwiches short of a picnic, so anything he says is questionable.

    I think it just shows the careless writing of the series. The Allspark creates life, Prime calls Megatron "brother', the Decepticons are creating life through hatchlings ala Van Helsing, and Jetfire talks about his father being a Wheel that transforms into nothing. They sound good when writing the individual scenes, but put them together once a universe starts to form, and you have choas.

    This.

    Plenty of families and cultures on our own planet treat parents as the ones who raised you, not necessarily the ones who created you.

    Why can't Cybertronians?

    You can easily tell that ROTF was rushed because people wanted to make history and money. Bay and his team should've thought this through. Even though ROTF was a great movie, the storyline was everywhere.

    The part in ROTF that got me was when Megatron went to Cybertron. How in the hell did he get there so freaking fast? And why is Cybertron one of Saturn's moons? Bay, you can't be serious.:( 

    In TF3, the writers had BETTER get it right. I'm dead serious! If Unicron and Primus aren't mentioned, Bay and I will be fighting!

    I didn't get that part about the hatching's. Can you expand on that, please?

    I don't think megatron went to cybertron. He went to the crashed nemesis. It was given in the comic series Defiance.

    From what was explained, Transformers are "built" somewhere and put in incubation pods until they're fight-worthy. At least Decepticons.


    Jetfire doesn't have parents, he was just going a little crazy being brought back to life after being dead for a long time.

    We are not sure if Transformers have real parents but we do know that Megatron and Starscream are now sitting on tons of eggs on the Nemesis chicken house.
