    So the Insecticons landed on Earth before Megs and his team and Starscream and Skyfire headed towards Earth before the Decep launch as well.
    Guess planet Earth wasn't so new after all.

    That is not correct, if your talking about the G1 toon.

    The Insceticons were part of Megatrons crew.They remained on board the Decepticon ship, docked to the Autobot ship, while Megatron and the others boarded the Autobot ship.

    When the battle caused both ships to spiral down twards Earth, the Insecticons entered an excape pod and landed on Earth at about the same time as the other TF's.

    Sto is spot on as usual but i got to agree with Insane Galvatron as they had to have had time to adapt there systems to covert what they ate to energon

    I thought it was because they were never in stasis that they were all nuts, having been living on Earth not doing much else but eating for 4 million years.

    But either way, the Insecticons showed up on Earth just when everyone else did.

    Skyfire in another thing. He got stuck there on a science mission back before Starscream became a Decepticon, which may or may not be before the war entirely.

    You would think Megs would have successfully made the trip back home to Cybertron in More than Meets they Eye with both the numerous Seekers in the strikeforce in part 2 and that ability to create multiple Insecticons? How did that happen (Episode 15, first episode with Insecticons>)

    What would happen if Skyfire converted Starscream into an Autobot?

    Thanks
    I dont deny it possible, but It just wasnt made too clear.

    The Insecticons could clone themselves.

    It was shown in their first episode.

    They could have used the clones in the movie and won the war.

    Not shown, said in the episode that the Insecticons first appear.

    Dialogo: Thundercracker
    A home for giant bugs

    Dialog:Megatron:

    Not so Thundercracker....this is a Decepticon excape modal, it was launched before our own starship crasher on Earth 4 million years ago.

    "Before our own starship crashed" but not necessarily from their ship. They could have crashed at some point before the Nemesis ever arrived. OMG I think we found the new FIR/RIB and Who is Cyclonus? type debate.

    Well, just like the Cyclonus debate, theres no reason to assume they ment anything other then the obvious.

    True, anything is possible...but what are the chances that more then 1 Decepticon ship had trouble over Earth 4 million years ago??

    There needs to be a logical reason to assume such a thing.

    Simplely because its possible isint enough.

    There was, actually. The ship that was carrying the Heart of Cybertron. I've never bought the assumption that it was the Nemesis (because of BW) myself. Too small. Could have been the one the Insecticons crewed.

    Thats hardly a logical reason.

    What something looks like, or how big it looks, is a matter of personal perceptive.

    Either way, Megatrons dialog suggests the pod came from his ship.

    Again I refer to the dialog.


    Dialogo: Thundercracker

    A home for giant bugs

    Dialog:Megatron:

    Not so Thundercracker....this is a Decepticon excape modal, it was launched before our own starship crasher on Earth 4 million years ago.

    It was all one continued sentence and one statement.

    If there was a break in the statement or if it had been 2 sentence then maybe an argumrnt could be made to support the pod not being from his ship.

    LOL, never knew these TF discussions turn into grammar/sentence structure classes.

    Anyways, keep debatin' away.

    Seems much more fun than political debating.

    Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
