    So when Autobots and Decepticons get dead, what do they (humans) do to them? Now, we could follow the movie and say the Decepticon's are dumped in the "deepest" part of the ocean, but after a while, the bodies add up, especially with the protoforms, and there were a lot of protoforms, so I'm sure they would put them somewhere else, not in the ocean, so where do you think they go?

    For the Autobot's, where do those ones go? In books, I've seen the bodies stuffed in crates, and that's about it, but this leads me to yet another question.
    Do you think Optimus goes back into the battle grounds to find the remains of his fallen comrades, like the Arcee sisters, Ironhide, Wheeljack, and whoever else died?

    The comic 'Alliance' showed Jazz was dumped into the ocean in a trailer. I'd assume the others were disposed of like that.

    First up: stop using that font and font colour.

    On-topic: Optimus probably turns the bodies of his fallen comrades into clothing or spare parts for his own use. That way, he can always remain close to them.

    For the people who can't read this dudes post, just highlight the writing like you would when you're copying something.

    On topic... I imagine the autobots have the good fortune to have a proper burial and/or ceremony. Like instead of just being dumped in the ocean, they get laid to rest in the ocean. There's a difference. And the ocean is pretty much endless, and it's not like we make frequent trips to the base of the laurentian abyss. Dumping the proto's works just fine.

    Just seems like a bad idea because it means James Cameron will have all the parts he needs to build an army of robots when taking over Hollywood isn't enough for him. Really hard to hide anything in the ocean from Cameron because that guy has an almost mutant ability to find lost things down there.

    They tossed the dead bodies to the ocean in movie 1, so we can assume they could had done the same with the others

    They dumped Megatron in the ocean because like Bin Laden, they didn't want his followers making a pilgrimage to retrieve him. It makes no sense to deep-six Jazz, as no one would come after him for sinister purposes. As for using the ocean as a grave for cons; there should be more than enough room to dump all of them. It would have been better to use them for spare parts, thus eliminating the need to worry about Megs coming back.

    Optimus either eats them or wears them like fur.

    .....I can think of worse things to befall Hollywood :p 

    Put the tin of paint thinner back the garage, its affecting your memory, because thats exactly what they fucking did in Revenge of the Fallen.

    That sounds like it would have been nice to see them do. Kinda like Arcee visiting Cliffjumper's memorial in Prime. Actually, I think instead of filimg Shia's whacky (read as fucking painful) antics at that insane college of his, film Optimus visit the grave of his long time second in command.

    They could have just auctioned off the remains on eBay. Someone would've bought 'em.

    It really is the only logical explanation. :lol 

    "Oh, Que. We all miss you." *puts on a new pair of Que-shorts* "Not only did you make spectacular weapons, my friend, but you make a fabulous pair of khakis!"

    *submarine swims by some debris*
    James on the intercom: "Oh, my! What's this?"
    *picks up Megatron's severed head*
    "A potentially new 3D documentary, that's what!"

    But in all seriousness, they probably dump most of them in the ocean. Even 200 protoforms probably doesn't take up much more space than say, a couple of sunken ships. There's plenty of those at the bottom of the sea. They maybe melt some down too, who knows?

    It'd be nice to have the dead Autobots put in super awesome high-tech coffins, a la the last episode of TFA. I think that'd be so cool, to see the NEST base with the surviving Autobots and these huge, 30 foot metal containers with their fallen comrades, including Sentinel. It'd add a little something to them as characters. But, that would require more visual effects money, and we'd all rather see Simmons mack on Mearing, right? Right, guys? :p

    The Japanese "Unite for the Universe" mini-comic that Furman wrote showed the Autobots actually smelting down the bodies of the dead Decepticons they'd taken custody of, so they could be re-used.

    Leadfoot ate them.

    Well, there's not much left of Ironhide. But the others received a burial at sea I presume.

    I'd break down the Decepticons into their smallest components and then melt everything down so nothing could ever possibly be revived.
    For the Autobots, I suppose burial. Or perhaps melt them down too and cast their bodies into slabs like grave stones and build some kind of memorial tomb to them with the slabs set into the walls.

    If there had been more Autobots killed I'd have said to use the slabs to make a long path so future Autobots could do a Walk of Rememberance along it every year and reflect on those who lost their lives doing their noble duty.
    I suppose you could use all the dead Decepticons too to make up numbers, but then the Autobots don't seem like the kind of beings to honour fallen foes. Maybe they could still be used for a Walk of Rememberance, but to remind future Autobots of the evil of the Decepticons.

    Ultimately combine the two ideas and use the Decepticon slabs to make a path that leads to a memorial tomb that contains the slabs of dead Autobots. The longer the walk to the tomb the longer someone has to reflect on the war and realise how many Decepticons were vanquished to achieve peace.
