    We see alot of this happen especially Starscream spits each time he talks, but what is it? Robot oil? Like Ironhide it seems he is smoking. I know alot of you will find this thread useless.

    Thanks

    For Starscream it's Jet fuel. For Ironhide, it's actually coming out of his nose. Makes him look pissed off.

    Here I was thinking Starscream had overactive saliva glands...Or he simply forgot to swallow.

    I didn't like how excessive Starscreams spitting was in DOTM, but I like to think of it as a cause from low Energon levels.

    I like to think, if he kept spitting, then he would run out of energon faster.

    Swallowing means they love you.


    I believe that the 'spit' is (over) used to emphasize the robot emotions. Starscream didn't do it in the ifrst movie, but in the second he was more aggressive. In the third he was almost furious when facing Sam. Hence the rainstorm when he was yelling.

    not a silly thread at all, actually i was thinking of doing the same sort.
    the way I see it and figure it works is..
    maybe tf's have a symbiotic relationship with microscopic organisms that produce a lubricant OR them being a living metal maybe IT secretes a type of lubricant

    Think of it this way, guys. You know how people spit in disgust while talking to someone they hate? This could be why Starscream constantly spits on Sam. Atleast, that's the only times I recall him doing so. It could be worse though. Atleast he didn't puke.

    I guess so, like maybe lubricants can also help make a character more real/alive rather than just a robot on screen (cough! reelstel! )

    Again, probably just spitting in disgust of what he was telling Megatron. I haven't seen ROTF in quite awhile. Trying to forget about it lol.

    That's another thing I was hoping to see in DOTM. Megatron vs Starscream. But atleast they DID have somewhat of a rivalry still.
